Goblins vs. Gnomes Challenge

Thu Nov 20, 2014, 11:21 AM
Goblins vs. Gnomes by SpicyGingerr

Create Your Own Mischievous Goblin or Gnome!

The battle has been declared. Side with either the cunning and dangerous Goblins or the clever and wacky Gnomes. Create your own Goblin or Gnome inspired by Hearthstone's new expansion pack, Goblins vs Gnomes, and include the invention they would use to confuse, confound, or explode their opponents.

It's up to you: pick as your inspiration the measured ingenuity of the Gnomes or the trademarked fearlessness of Goblins. Make a new invention or reinterpret an old one.

Step 1

Learn more about the characters and inventions used in the game, Hearthstone Goblins vs Gnomes. View the cards provided above and consult the additional resources link. You may use as reference but not actually duplicate Gnomes, Goblins, inventions, and other visual materials currently used in the game.

Step 2

Create an original artwork inspired by the Hearthstone Goblins vs Gnomes game in the form of a portrait or an illustration of a single Goblin or Gnome character with one of their mischievous inventions. You may use any visual medium excluding cosplay, photographs, or moving images. Photographs of an entry made in another medium are acceptable.

Step 3

Submit your entry using the button below. Your entry must be at least 2,000 pixels in its shortest length and must be submitted as a single .JPG or a single .PNG file.

Sorry !
Looks awfully complicated and I also have a real life to live.

I gave up on Grepolis and my decision was justified: too many commands, game was not responding... And finally a few players took over & monopolized everything.

Also I read of WarCraft and decided that IT was not my cup of tea.

  1. SELECTION OF WINNERS:

    Potential winners will be selected on or about December 20, 2014, from all eligible and qualified entries. Twenty-five (25) semi-finalists will be selected by full-time deviantART staff on the basis of (i) Successful depiction of Gnome or Goblin character(s), (ii) Overall Impact of the Work, (iii) Technical Skill, and (iv) Originality all in whatever degree the judges believe to be appropriate in reaching a decision. The twenty-five (25) semi-finalists will be posted on the Contest Site in advance of final judging. Only one entry per Entrant may be chosen as a semi-finalist entry. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winning Works will be selected from the set of semi-finalists by members of Blizzard’s Hearthstone Creative Team using the same criteria and methodology. The judges' decisions are final on all matters relating to the Contest. In the event of a tie in any portion of the judging process, the judges themselves will resolve the tie to the appropriate number of semi-finalists or ranked winners as applicable.

Just by curiosity, does anyone else have created the stats their card would have if it was in the game, like me? I think I have seen few others people do it.

Now that the contest is closed and I was too chicken to compete, I've taken the time to browse all the entries and put up a post about the ones I like the most and the ones I think have the best chance as semi-finalists.  Hopefully this is fun and interesting for people to check out  :P  Comments welcome  :)

I knew that I'll never win a Contest like this bescause there are to many masterpieces,
but contests like this excites me to give a lot of effort. I hope to take part of more in the future!

Here is my work, not a winer but even more i learned for the working process in the next time.
