Fan Art Competition and Community Showcase #4

The Fan Art Competition will close on Thursday the 19th of February at 2pm NZT. At this time we'll pick eight of our favourite fan art entries from the Community Showcase forum. Two players will receive the top-tier prize. One winner will be based on originality and flair, the other will be based on artistic skill and merit. This means you need not be the most talented artist to enter the competition. The prizes will be as follows:

  • Top two submissions - 1,000 points and the chance to submit part of your fan art for your own custom forum avatar.
  • Third and Fourth Prize - 1,000 points
  • Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Prize - 500 points

Competition Guidelines
  • Submissions must be made between the time of this post and 2pm Thursday the 19th of February.
  • Submissions must be made in the Community Showcase forum.
  • Content must be related to Path of Exile.
  • Work must be created by the owner of the account making the submission.
  • Any medium of still-art may be used.
  • Multiple submissions are welcomed.

To enter, just host a picture of your submission on an image sharing site like imgur and make a post in the Community Showcase forum with a link to your work.

In the meantime, here are our picks for this week's Community Showcase:

"Adventures of Wraeclast" - Piety's Day Off by Exponential Crazy
This brief animation, Piety's Day Off, is oddly mesmerizing. Exponential Crazy uses footage of himself to rotoscope this short, frame by frame.

"Virity Witch Sculpture" by Joxol
Joxol is a talented sculptor who creates a lot of Path of Exile based art. This piece is just one example of the quality work he consistently produces. If you're interested in knowing more about the process he uses, be sure to check out his Twitch channel.

"Hideout Series: Against The Oriath" - by CMKcrazay and Frostbites
This series is an interesting mesh of talent! CMKcrazay and Frostbites have been working together to create fan fiction that is illustrated by creating story-scenes with their hideouts. CMKcrazay typically creates a hideout with a story arc to go with it, after some discussion, Frostbites turns it into a fully formed piece of fan fiction. This series is ongoing, so, if you like their work, be sure to check in with them again!

"Tales of Blackguards" - by Gallio
This comic is a humorous yet touching look at some of the trials of Wraeclast.

"PicKle Surprise!" by Willywonka_HC
I'm avoiding writing a blurb for this. I don't want to spoil it. Enjoy!

If you would like to submit your work to be considered for future Community Showcase posts or to enter our Fan Art competition, please post your work here. Thank you for your submissions and good luck to those who are entering the competition! We look forward to seeing your work.
Pushing my artistic guildies to get on this... that's a lot of guild tabs!

Play with honour and show some class -
Zarabeth - Level 89 Ranger
Wicked Wanda - Level 87 Witch
Xarabeth - Level 79 Scion
Really love the idea of the competition!
I might enter if I think of something but I'm mainly excited to see what cool stuff other people will come up with.
Time to dust off the brushes and give this a go.
Ascension tied to Lab is the worst thing GGG has done...apart from GGG's philosophy on Trading. Oh and Gambling Loot boxes. And selling out to tencent.

I used to love GGG. I supported to ensure GGG remained independent, now I just wish I could get my money back. -_-


Also stoked for the art contest. Wonder what I should do.

After seeing Piety....dancing, I am like no break for you.
Sometimes you can take the game out of the garage but you can't take the garage out of the game.
