Next Contest - Group Icon

Thu Jul 12, 2018, 1:27 PM by Elle-Arden:iconelle-arden:

No rest for you Dazaholics! We have another contest for you!

We are all really tired of our hooded lady that we have had on our group icon for years, so it's time for a fresh look!

No prize this time, but the winner will have their image on our group icon! I'd like it to say Dazaholics on it, but there are no other rules lol. I will have to say though that a simple design looks best. I just randomly put my last image in there to see if we need any specific size and it looks like pretty much any image can be made to fit as long as it's wide, but you can see that that image is way too cluttered and so small you can't see what's going on! (See below) So anyway, give it some thought and see what you can come up with and I will open up a group album as soon as I am done posting this. We will have the album open for a few weeks and then we will send out a poll so everyone can vote on it!

Also I can't put it back to our old one because I don't have that file on my computer anymore so save us please! :laughing:

Happy Rendering!!

Dark Brotherhood Contest Results

Thu Jul 12, 2018, 12:18 PM by Elle-Arden:iconelle-arden:

Ok Dazaholics the moment we have been waiting for!!

The way we calculated the winners was with our guest judges, the two sponsors (RiverSoft Art and IslandGirl) as well as the admins here and the voting results from the poll.  We assigned points to each image, added all the points up and the numbers gave us the winners!

First, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our contest. We hope you had fun, stretched a little, and maybe learned a little something too. We hope to do more of these contests in the future, but they won't happen without great participants to give us fantastic renders! You are all winners to me for participation :trophy: but we do only have four prizes so here are our final winners:

First Place:

Mature Content

Dark Brotherhood by tab109

by :icontab109:

This image very perfectly fit the theme, it grabs the eye and the composition is beautiful. The card laying in the hand of the victim is a really nice touch. Congratulations!

Second Place:

Legion of the Fallen by NapalmArsenal
by :iconnapalmarsenal:

Another really beautiful image, the warm glow and the special effects really make this one really stand out!

Third Place:

Dark Brotherhood by SmidA460
by :iconsmida460:

This one also fit the theme to perfection. This image is very dark and foreboding, and creates a feeling of tension in the viewer.

Honorable Mention:

I have to say that this one was nearly a three way tie, but the numbers were still clear, our honorable mention is:

DESIRE Dying To Meet Me by 12CArt
by :icon12cart:

Another really well done image, it all fits together and came out beautifully!

So please note me with the email address that you would like to receive your Daz Gift Certificates at. I will also send your email to the vendors so they can arrange your product prizes! I can't wait to see what you make with your new goodies!


Happy Rendering!

Final Voting for Dark Brotherhood Contest

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 6, 2018, 4:15 PM
Ok Dazaholics!

Before we get to the final round of voting for the contest, I did want to mention a couple things. First, we are missing an image from the contest, so it looks like someone took their image down. If you want to get back into the final round of voting would you please let me know and get your image back up? If I don't hear anything by tomorrow, that image will not be included in the final poll since the link is dead and nothing shows up. Your image did qualify to be in the final round though so it's a shame to have it lose out.

Ok, next, it has been brought to our attention that anyone on DA can vote on our poll, not just members of our group. This means that people with more watchers and fans will probably get more votes if they send out blogs to their watchers. It was never said that this was against the rules, (in fact I did encourage sharing the contest with everyone), so we won't hold that against any of the images. However, to keep things in the spirit of the themed contests, the admins are also going to vote on the final winners after the results of the poll is in. We will consider things like the creative use of the theme, and technical and artistic merit, etc. However, the poll will also serve as a large part of the win. This will give members the say in things, the "popular vote" as it were. If there was a way to limit the voting to only members of our group, then we would just go with the results of the poll, however, none of the admins feel that it's a true representation of the spirit of our themed contests the way it is set up. Not everyone who is voting even understands that we have themes. For example, it's very frustrating for newer members, or those with less watchers, to lose only because they haven't been around as long, when their image is high quality.

So let's get back to the fun, which is what this contest is all about when it comes down to it! So sometime tomorrow, or after I hear about the missing image, I will put up the final poll and take the other two off the front page of the group. So if you haven't voted on the first two polls yet, now is the time to do so. If you have voted on the first two polls, please DO also vote on the next, final poll that comes out because this is for the win! The poll will include the top ten images from the first two polls!

Good luck and happy rendering!!
