TalonRO Loading Screen Contest

Recommended Posts

I just want to ask/clarify a few things:

  1. "All Entries must be TalonRO themed"  -- does this mean its "anything goes" with the theme (as long as its tRO-related of course) and there's no particular subject that we should draw
    (e.g. Spring, unique tRO features, etc...?)
  2. How do you select the winning entries? What are your criteria for judging them?

Thanks for your time.

There's no particular theme "anything goes" as long it's TalonRO related. Obviously keep it suitable for all audience groups within our community.

It will be a group decision among the GM team to decide the winners.

To clarify some more, these would be loading screens for when there is no particular season in effect. Basically they are our default loading screens.

What if I want to participate in the contest if I don't play anymore and win? Do I still get a prize? Although it's never going to be used nor I am ever going to log in, do I still participate or am excluded?

Of course. That's up to you. :)

To be honest, I'm so tempted to draw GM Boreas with his 'Almighty Banhammer' or other GMs.
But I'm too afraid that I might get banned instead XD

As long you keep your entry suitable for all audiences within our community then you have nothing to fear.

Having a little confusion with the aspect ratio since I haven't really paid any mind to it before.

Correct me if I'm wrong, shouldn't it be 1280x720 minimum instead of 1280x960 to make it 16:9?

yeah it should, but its more logical that error is in ratio than amount of pixels... also every other loading screen contest since now have been been with 4:3 ratio that 1280x960 is... so I'd play my money on 4:3 being safer to start sketching with.

@morgendorper - sorry for any confusion, basically what @Eliyas said as RO uses aspect ratio of 4:3. (Thanks Eliyas) 

That was an error on my part while posting and thank you for pointing that out to me ~

To give some specifics: the login screen is cut up in 12 images. 3 rows, each consisting of 4 images, thus 4:3. Each image is 320x320 pixels in size.

4x320 = 1280
3x320 = 960

And there you have it~

Hiya, this is the first post I had ever done. ;u;

I just recently joined the community and trying my luck. ;u;

Here's my entry. 

IGN: Hezuthiele

Let me know if you need the HQ version (It is super large so I can't upload it in here)

Thank you so much!

Oh it's mine... Though I just randomly use a watercolor tool.. At first I am so into doing a detailed background but afterwards I have gave up because time is not so friendly for me but i can attach a photoshop file if needed or in question.  Thanks for bringing that up!  Hahas

      i hope you like puns :>
      my art tumblr (and mostly RO art) is @ fumiddition
      Howdy, TalonRO! My name is Fumi and my main IGN is Ardinda (feel free to use either or be as creative as you want). I used to play, draw and rp RO about a handful of years ago, but recently I've been Asura Strike'd right in the feels again and decided to creep back into it for good ol' nostalgia's sake and take my sweet time with it here. That being said, it's only been a few days since I've first logged in (I've shamefully forgotten almost every command and underestimated some monsters ultimately leading to my countless deaths), but I hope to meet more of you cool leaf cats in-game and look forward to be able to use this little art corner to share some drawings of my adventures here on this server whenever I can.

      This is Ardinda! She just turned Super Novice thanks to an awesome guildie's help (shoutout to IGN Holiday Roll!) and I just finished this today. 

      On to my shop section! Since I'm very addicted to the beautiful costumes on this server and want to own some of them, I'd like to take this opportunity to offer:
      Single half body character, cel-shaded commissions for 30 mil zeny / 30 Talon Coins each - I will work one at a time, but I'll provide a waitlist if necessary!
      These are samples of commissions I've done, so you can expect the final result to be more or less like these:

      If you're interested, do Sharp Shoot me a reply down below and I'll get back to you with the details I need!
      Working Slots / Waiting List / Current Progress %
      Slot #01: GM Luna x 4 (100% - 1/2 paid) x 2 (0%)
      Slot #02: Iela x 4 (10% - 1/2 paid)
      Slot #03: Natalis x 3 (awaiting references)
      Slot #04: Cherrios x 2 (50% - paid)
      Slot #05: GM Mimi x 1 (0% - paid)
      Slot #06: Sephyyy (0%)
      Slot #05: (anon), runningmudo, GM Havoc, Vivikuri, LieO (awaiting reply)

      Waitlist #01: Marly
      Waitlist #02: GM Elixia
      Waitlist #03: Orchestra
      Waitlist #04: Yuren
      Waitlist #05: GM Venus
      Waitlist #06: Naght
      Waitlist #07: (anon)

      Thank you so much for your time and looking - I hope to update this thread casually with more RO art~

      Alright, I have bitten the bullet! I'm going to attempt to open an art shop here. For now, this is going to be just in a test-drive mode to gauge interest. And since I'm still a fledgling in TalonRO, I feel that a little extra zeny might help me get my feet on the ground here.
      I will be selling sketchwork only for now.
      If you've seen my gallery thread, you know I have a situation with being unable to color things/use tablet. I MAY, in the future, offer color chibis, but bear in mind that they will have to be done completely with a mouse in a free art program, which is not easy to accomplish. I will update this thread if/when I offer those.
      To start, I am going to open two slots. (First come, first serve.)
      I will be offering headshot (+shoulders) (basically a bust shot) fully-shaded sketches for 7 mil/7 TC a piece and must be paid in advance! (If you chose to use the Mail Box option, please send the payment to Celeste Acacia! Thanks!) Excessive/complicated headgear will possibly cost a bit more, so bear that in mind. I am also not familiar with many of the Talon headgears, so please provide as much reference as possible!
      The sketches will look something like this:




      Things I need from you:
      Character Reference:
      Hair/eye color:
      Headgear Reference:
      Brief Personality:
      Other details you want to note (posing/expression/character quirks):
      Sketch Color (if desired):
      Slots:
      1. Mei Magnolia [ Finished! ]
      2. hazelae [ Finished! ]
      3. Novalolly [ Paid! In progress~ ]
      Waiting List:
      Cassidy
      Completed!:
      1. amii.
      2. Mei Magnolia
      3. Alteisen
      4. Ciwo
      5. Mei Magnolia
      6. hazelae
       
      Thanks and I hope to be sketching some of your characters soon!
