    Hi! I have a question, can my fan art of my character be wearing the wizard clothing from the concept art or would that count as plagerising? I really like that costume (ie. the one in my profile pic)

    I would redraw it in my own pose and style of art etc. though.

    I drew my character riding on her cute tamed Evil Eye, who spotted a little friend to "play" with.

    On the "Content Guidelines" part e:
    "e. Not be released through personal media such as a blog/SNS."

    Then on the "Intellectual Property" section, which makes a bit more sense.
    "...permission to copyright, reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, exhibit, and otherwise use the image or any part thereof as-is or edited (with or without using any entrant’s name) in any media throughout the world for any purpose, without limitation, and without additional review, compensation, or approval from any entrant or any other party."

    Has contests rules always been this strict in regards with personal use of one's own art after submission? Or have I been ignorant about it all? Am I understanding this correctly, that by just submitting an art, we lose all rights pertaining to the art? Giving the "sponsors" all the rights to do whatever they want to, including not requiring to refer to the creator?

    I mean I guess the rights go to the "sponsors" sort of makes sense? But the part on Content Guidelines about not being able to release the art to "personal media" seems abit unfair? Or am I missing something?

    Is it okay for me to draw a NPC or monster from the game with my character or are we only allowed to draw our own character? Also, in terms of looks/outfits, are we only supposed to draw our character wearing clothes they are actually currently wearing or they can be wearing anything as long as it's something that exists within the game or something my character owns? By that I mean, after I submit a drawing, am I not allowed to change my character's looks again until after the contest is over? Or let's say there's this cool hat that someone designed, but I haven't bought it yet, am I not allowed to draw my character wearing it?

    You can upload your artwork anywhere and submit it.
    We always give credit to artists when we showcase their artwork on social. :-)

    Sure, you can add an NPC in the same piece your character is in! No restrictions on what the character is wearing as long as it does not contain inappropriate material. You can change how your character looks whenever you want.

    I plan to do a watercolor painting - is there a preference to whether its posted as just a photo or a scan?
