Ages-of-Thedas - Unseen Characters Contest[CLOSED]

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 5, 2017, 9:41 AM

Happy August, fellow Thedosians! :wave:

Ages-of-Thedas aims to be one of the most comprehensive Dragon Age-themed groups here on DeviantArt. However, despite this, there are still a great many characters that are lacking in artwork in this group, with few deviations, or even none at all, in our galleries. In hopes of remedying this matter, I have cooked up a contest for you all - one I hope you find both interesting and rewarding. ;)

I've compiled a list of DA characters that are sorely lacking in artwork in our group. Your task? Give them some representation! Due to the nature of our folder and gallery structure, this competition will be limited to visual art only, but that does include digital and traditional art, 3D design, cosplay, etc.

Check out the list below and see which character/NPC/creature(s) interests you the most!

*** You can submit up to THREE pieces to increase your chances of winning!
*** You can double up and represent the same character as someone else! That's totally fine! The more the merrier!

Also, if the contest is open until the end of today, then I can totally add Bhelen in. But if not, no biggie :)
dara1hunter Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Just wanted to let you know I'm almost done with Branka. I likely won't finish Bhelen in time :( but I'll still do him to add to the group gallery later. I"m sorry it's such last minute. 
AuriV1 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
All right. If it helps, you have all day on the 3rd...I technically won't officially close it until the 4th.
dara1hunter Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist

ThePhoenixKing Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2017
Damn, of course I only find out about this today, at 8:30 at night with work in the morning :( Maybe next time.
HBisley-Art Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Currently working on a final entry of one of the dragons, including harts and a nug haha so hopefully I'll get that done in time :D
Captain-Savvy Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
AAAH At this rate I don't know if I'm going to get mine done x____x I really want to, maybe the weekend will be forgiving!
If not I'll be looking forward to seeing who wins, and working on some prizes. All of these entries are really great!

Hello, I have just done a cosplay of Moira, the Rebel Queen. I was wondering if I would be able to submit up to three pictures of the same character, or if it is restricted to one picture. Thanks! :) 
AuriV1 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can submit three of the same, if you like.
Be44Ka Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Awesome! I will take note.
Rad-Puppeteer Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Would love to draw some more of the unseen characters! Just not sure who I should do that's on the list - I'm leaning towards Florianne at the moment but would I be able to drawing others like Gordian or Denam unless they have some fanart in the group that I've missed? :O
AuriV1 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure you can!
AuriV1 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
All righty! :D
