One of the things that has kept so many of us playing or returning to UO after all these years is the attachment we form to our characters. Whether it be the stories and lore we create as we travel Sosaria, the long hours we spend training, or simply the fun of customizing a character's appearance, our characters mean a lot to us. So let's show them off!


Rules:

  • You may create an image of your character from scratch in any artistic medium of your choice. Drawing, painting, ASCII art, sand pouring, Etch-A-Sketch, whatever.

  • Digitally created art is fine, but again should be from scratch. Photo manipulations will not be accepted for this contest.

  • Include an image of your paperdoll for reference.

  • You may work with a partner or team, but only one reward will be issued per team if that team is selected as a winner.

  • The work must be entirely your own (or that of you and your partner/team). You could not, for example, adapt an image from someone else's work to fit your character for the purposes of this contest.

  • Each entrant (or partnership/team) may submit as many entries as they like, but may only place once.

  • Entries must adhere to the Stratics Rules of Conduct and Terms of Service.

Post your entries in this thread by 11:59 PM (Eastern timezone) on Wednesday, August 31st. At that time, the thread will be closed and winners selected by Stratics staff.

The winners will receive the following prizes:

1st Place: 2000 sovereigns or any Origin store Ultima Online item of equal or lesser value. One month of Stratics Professional and a medal indicating 1st Place in the contest applied to the winner's Stratics account.

2nd Place: 1000 sovereigns or any Origin store Ultima Online item of equal or lesser value. A medal indicating 2nd Place in the contest applied to the winner's Stratics account.

3rd Place: 500 sovereigns or any Origin store Ultima Online item of equal or lesser value. A medal indicating 3rd Place in the contest applied to the winner's Stratics account.


We look forward to seeing your work. Good luck!

I win no further need for Entries :) For the record I do not want to win anything, not that I really think my 5 minute paint sketch will. I just had some fun with it and hopefully help get the ball rolling.

So I tried to do this by creating a pic after the VvV banners. I hand drew my toon on Siege Mia Khalifa from my guild Beautiful Oppai Nuru Experts BONE:

So far so good. But then when I started coloring it in Photoshop my arms REALLY started bothering me. I have a neurological issue which requires me to use braces and foot pedals and pen tablets, so I had to quit before even finishing the first layer (see below). So I'm just entering the pen and ink version.

Here is my paperdoll:

Oh well, it is what it is. Back to harassing the UO store! (STILL NO ROBES!)

The staff has now voted!

This was a tough one. There was a great variety of styles and creativity here, and nearly every entry got a few votes! Ultimately though, winners had to be chosen, and when the votes were tallied the winners were:

1st Place- @Jaden Rain
2nd Place- @jackie
3rd Place- @ShriNayne

The winners will be receiving PMs from me shortly regarding their rewards.

Thank you all for participating, and I hope you had fun. Watch this forum for the next contest!
