View Full Version : The Draw Britt Contest - 2002 Edition!

Yes, that is correct. I've become vain enough to desire for you all to create a fictional representation of me, once again. For those of you that have not yet encountered this bit of EoFF tradition, every now and then, I ask the members of Eyes on Final Fantasy to illustrate me as they see fit. The winners will be selected, of course, by me.

The rules of the contest are simple: Draw me using whatever media you desire, in whatever way you desire. I will provide some guidelines that might earn you brownie points, but the majority of this contest depends on your skill and creativity. I'd like to request all entries to be in within ten days, which would mean that the contest ends on September 10.

Here are some tips that might make your illustration a bit more appealing to my tastes.

1.) Blonde or blue hair, particularily blonde, is preferable.
2.) I like elves. Make me look like one, if you want to.
3.) Lots of people get the idea that I'm scary, dark, and evil. If you can work that to your advantage, go for it.
4.) I happen to like <a href="http://www.exdee.net/angiepaul.JPG">Kildarre and Asorie.</a> Like, <a href="http://www.exdee.net/angiepaul2.jpg">a lot.</a> Include one or both of them in the picture and you'd make me happy forever and ever.
5.) I'm a vain, twisted son of a gun. I'm not afraid to look outlandish. My very existance is unwieldly and outlandish.
6.) I'm not tough. Don't make me look macho. Eww.
7.) I don't have horns, honest. ;_;

Enjoy yourselves. Good luck.

Those are such nice pictures. I'd try to draw you three together, but I couldn't do you justice.

Why yes, I <i>would</i> love to post the original Draw Britt Contest rules in order to justify indefinitely preserving them in a text file in an obscure corner of my "EoFF" folder! How nice of you to offer.

Since half-assed MSPaint drawings are all the rage lately, I thought I'd do my own little bastardization of Mik art.

Edit: Oh, and those aren't horns, they're elf ears.

I made it beardless originally, but when I added that growth on the face I took a liking in it. ;)

EDIT: I think that I will just have to do this twice. Here's before sleep.

Here is <A HREF="http://villagemist.freewebspace.com/stuff/britt2002.jpg">my entry.</A>

This took me a LONG time to do... I just hope that Kild and Asorie don't mind the manner in which I've portrayed them... I put a lot of heart into this, and I sincerely hope that Britt, Angela and Paul like it.

Britt: I feel like there should be some text at the top, but I couldn't think of something that would fit. If you want, you can add text to it. Also, I made it in 1024x768, in case you wanted to use it as a desktop background.

No, Paul is too attractive in that picture, My-Ken. Automatically disqualified for being overunrealistic. *noddy not* Add more flab, five o'clock shadow, and a dorky sneer and we'll talk.

Imnotusnit (1:28:59 AM): Not ME! *^_^*
bou rawk (1:29:02 AM): stfu
Imnotusnit (1:29:13 AM): 'cause MY parents had sex FIRST.
bou rawk (1:29:37 AM): barely, you young-ass high school graduate.
Imnotusnit (1:29:55 AM): *sniffy sniffy*
Imnotusnit (1:30:03 AM): yep, that's jealousy in the air, there. :D

P.S. HAHA i beat ya Dark Holy!! i posted my pic first!!! Sucker.....

P.P.S. Sorry theirs a huge white space around my pic, but it scanned in realllllllllllly weird.

Dark Holy
09-11-2002, 03:09 AM
*sigh* ummm... hmmm... yeah.

My sincerest apologies to Britt, Kildarre, and Asorie, you all look somewhat retarded in my entree... but enjoy it anyways! This wasn't what I was going for, but I ran out of time (well, that's procrastination for ya. ;) ) , and I really really REALLY suck at drawing girls, this is the 6th one I've ever drawn and the other five were required for an art assignment. Asorie is in a mech/robot/metal suit, so any masculinity/oddities are because of that! :D Well umm... yeah.

Britt
09-12-2002, 12:11 AM
Alright. I'd like to start by thanking everyone for entering... this has been a really great year. :)

And now, to keep this short and sweet, I will announce the winners.

Claiming <b>third</b> place, <b>Naitsirk</b>'s drawing managed to amaze me with its unique style and appearance. The backdrop itself is a remarkable work of art, but the ghostly appearance of the subject adds even more to it. It is very curious in that it captures a certain "aged" appearance that I've never seen used in the contest before. The use of colors is very nice, and the beard is pulled off quite well. I typically wouldn't like that at all, but it was incredibly well done. Cheers, Nait.

In <b>second</b> place, <b>Chaos</b> has also wowed me with a unique style and representation, which reminds me a great deal of <i>Neverwinter Nights</i>, for some reason. I'm especially pleased with the face, hair, and clothing. Again, the colors go together very, very well, and create an interesting and etheral atmosphere. The ears are perfect; I really like those ears particularily, for some reason. ;)

And now... before announcing a winner, I'd like to make a few comments to a few artists that just barely missed earning honors as well.

<b>Shlup</b> - I adored your picture and its fairly realistic representation. If it had more than a just the face, it would have been completely awesome. :)

<b>Dark Holy</b> - If this were a "Draw Paul" contest, I think you would have totally kicked ass. ;) I really like what you did with Kildarre; it was truly excellent. The entire picture is very, very, very well done. However, representation is key, and I don't feel I was as well represented; the burly, Saiyan-esque look doesn't really suit what I was looking for, as well done as it was. Though all three were very well done, Kildarre is the only one that I feel truly represented the original.

And now... I'd like to announce the winner.

With the best piece of art I daresay I have ever seen in my life, <b>Mäjken</b> has claimed her third victory running. :) I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about it; anything that I don't think perfectly captures... everything. That's about all I can really say about it... it's more or less the perfect representation.

... Well done.

It's all right, I know you didn't mean it.

As it should have.


The backdrop itself is a remarkable work of art, but the ghostly appearance of the subject adds even more to it.

I am a visionary.


It is very curious in that it captures a certain "aged" appearance that I've never seen used in the contest before.

Ah, well, this is spiritual age. ;)


The use of colors is very nice, and the beard is pulled off quite well.

Totto doo!


I typically wouldn't like that at all, but it was incredibly well done.

Hee hee.


Cheers, Nait.

But thanks.
And *applauds* go to everyone who enetered regardless of where they came. You all did great. :D
And Woo to Mäjji...again...maybe we should restrict her drawing materials next time. I'm thinking...a four day old sock and a rather small anchovie. Damn, she'd still win it with that. ;)
