    October Pumpkin Carving Contest!

    Dragon Masters!

    Since we got such positive feedback from this contest last year, we figured we’d bring back the 5PG RPG Carving Contest!

    Quote Originally Posted by Avigdor
    It’s October, and you know what that means! Halloween, candy, and pumpkin spice! Pumpkin spice everywhere! It’s like you can’t escape the stuff. We need to do something about it. Send a warning to those pumpkin peddlers that we won’t take it anymore!

    5PG feels the same way, so we’re holding a contest to deal with the sanctimonious squash! Put your skills to the test and represent your favorite 5pg game. Pick a design that will represent the game of choice in this 5pg carve off!
    Entry Parameters:
    • The carving must be your own work.
      We reserve the right to verify the originality of your entry via an internet search.
      If it's not, your entry will be disqualified.
    • Your entry must represent the game you're submitting it for. It can be a character, a scene, a piece of equipment, or anything else creative that relates to the game.
    • For players unfamiliar with pumpkins, they grow in patches on a vine (like watermelon), but if you don't have access to a pumpkin, that's alright! Anything from a garden that you can carve will be acceptable (you could even get creative with a power drill and an acorn if you want)*!
    • The ToS still applies to images carved on to the pumpkins, so keep it fun!


    Post Parameters:
    • The Contest will run from Friday, October 2, until Friday, October 30.
    • Players are allowed one (1) entry per game.
    • If you play in all four (4) games (Dawn, Dawn Mobile, Suns, & Suns Mobile), you can have one (and only one) entry on each of the respective forums.
    • Your Post must include
      In-Game Name:
      Level:
      Army Code:
      Guild Name:
      A picture of your carving
      A handwritten note in the picture including the phrase “DRAGONS FOREVER”


    Embedding Pictures:
    If you weren’t sure how to include a picture in your entry, here’s the easiest way to embed the image directly into your post:


    Rewards:
    • Grand Prize: The best pumpkin carving design across all forums will be added to all four games as a brand new Familiar! This player will also receive $20 worth of [Premium Currency].
    • Each game will also select the 5 best pumpkins posted on the forums and award those players with $5 worth of [Premium Currency] each.
    • All players who participate will also be awarded the new Pumpkin Familiar.
    • Winners will be announced one week after the contest ends.


    So get out there and start carving! May the best squash squelcher win!

    * 5th Planet Games will not be held responsible for any injuries that may occur in the event of pursuing this course of action. Please carve responsibly.







    And with the submission of my pumpkins, I hereby close this thread and the contest for this year. All pumpkin entries shall be reviewed by the team and voted on. I will post the winners in its own thread.

    Thank you all for your entries! This is always a fun contest!

    Will the familiar be available to everyone like last time or is it only for contest participants? (meaning, do I actually have a reason to waste $5 on a pumpkin, or should I ignore this thread?)

    Does Schnzy's submission mean that we can carve digital pumpkins, submit them, and have that count? Or does it have to be a real-life carving?

    Normally I hate this time of year. Taking children to the other side who were innocently playing in the pumpkin patch gets depressing. Dreams of being a Luminary or Immortal one day cut short because they disturbed the Apocolocyntosised Demon. This job is hard enough without frighten children being my next client. They are already afraid and confused then I have to come walking up.

    Well, last year I had an idea after an apple tree in my back yard died. I let the wood dry for a year and then in June got to work. I’m a bit excited someone other than recently deceased children will see my handy work. I turned that fallen apple tree into a pumpkin marionette with the help of some vines I thinned from my grapes. You might think seeing a puppet version of the thing that just killed you would be scary but so far it has helped to break the ice. I am scary looking enough with the robes and shadows. The puppet also takes the focus off the scythe and onto the toy.

    I normally use a glow potion I bought from the alchemist for a candle like effect but they don’t work well during the day. I considered real candles but even with the back open it got a bit hot and I was just asking for trouble. My own pumpkin patch was nearly lost in testing a candle when the “strings” slipped through these bony fingers.

    Hope you like my carving and also hope it fits the parameters; specifically referring to the power drill and acorn part. I used a lathe and a carving set. I have always considered my apple trees and grape vines part of my garden.

    Here is an album including the making of my pumpkin: http://imgur.com/a/zAHCr

    Hy all so this is all the same thing, captured with diffrent angle and lights. Backlighting used LED finger lanterns - for clor, material used - Half an orange used over pumpkin for maximum light difusal effect. No Photoshop or any editing whatsoever. Multiple pictures as the Dragons forever page is not clearly visible in all. Enjoy ^^
    Edit* PS I was going to set it on fire to but i think it looks great without the flames ^^

    Katrina's powers and origin are mysterious, and her knowledge of events to come has led some to believe
    that she has the gift of prophecy, and others to claim she hails from a far off and undiscovered land of oracles.

    Screaming stone
    These ancient cavings from the north would, according to legend, start screaming when the nightmare queen was drawing close.

    When these relics are placed correctly in the wind's breath they would emit a high pitch whistle.

    When the first rapports of the queen's horde came to the land, the people noticed that the stones no longer made a sound. To their horror they realised the stones had been screaming all this time.

    Hello guys to pumpkin in my country is very expensive and I ended up writing Dragon Forever. Excuse. And then I saw I had already eaten my Swan and it was my last apple. I tried to make Glass Heart Sawn.

    Participants only this year. It shall not end up in the citadel like last years. (My fault! I convinced the team to put it in there)

    Nope, and he isn't a contestant, just having fun! My submission is coming soon!

    As cool as this is I'm afraid this doesn't qualify, its not something you carved. This is somewhat of a creative contest. (Unless you did actually carve that, tell me what it used to be)

    i wouldn t lie Logann you know me better than that

    http://prntscr.com/8w0nw3 http://prntscr.com/8w0n33 (you can allready see some shapes after the first 2 hours

    http://prntscr.com/8w0p2v rough shape but almost done needs to be sanded after carving the pieces off. (after 2 days, total 10 hours work)

    after this I used finer and finer sandpaper, then used wet sanding paper to a 2400 grain, after which i blowtorched it, to get the water out and make it warm enough to apply bee wax..

    this is really my work, i m not kidding.. i put a paper with "Dragons forever - pimp" in front of it as well.

    Oh I didn't think you lied, I do know you better than that. I just mis-read your description. Well done! It looks authentically ancient! It is back on the qualified list!
