We are extending it a little bit longer we have had a few requests.

Also your image isn't a loading screen format, it needs to be 1920*1080p (sorry if that wasn't stated in OP, thought it was implied - can you extend your background out to fit the res)

Just so everyone is aware, I will still be giving out prizes as consolation for entering.

Only those that get approved as a loading screen will net the 10k prize. Not everyone and not necessarily anyone will be chosen.

I've recently had someone on reddit submit this as fan art, unaware of the competition (she's from SEA and illegible anyway) but this is the quality and standard that will get you a shot on the loading screen. Please do not be offended if your picture is not chosen, we have a strict bar.

P.S final warning to change the resolution to 1080p if you're serious about this competition.

So much work lately I forgot about this thread lol. I hadn't much time to work on my piece, but since I did it, I'll post anyway.

The 1080p version:

Since originally this competition didn't have any defined format, I started it as a portrait. I was planning to do it more like a wallpaper for cellphone haha

Anyway, here's the original:

Hi Guys.

So a lot has happened. I had a death in the family, I got married and I'm about to take a week offline on a mini-moon (not a fully honeymoon, but a remote cabin experience).As far as this competition goes, I just wanted to make something clear as you read the results.

ANY SELECTED ART: 10k Gold Coins.

To avoid disappointment, I needed to make this clear: The resolution HAS to be 1080p for starters, and the level of drawing had to be of the highest standard and it had to have detail with an immersive background. Our crew has agreed and have selected nettocap's picture to be showcased as a revolving loading screen in the December patch alongside another redditor that posted their submission to me.

 

I don't think it's fair that people gave an honest attempt, so I've awarded you with Gold Coins for your efforts in submissions.

 

*IMPORTANT UPDATE*

Management have held a discussion and have decided to revisit voting in favour of including `Mazda's second submission as the second winning entry and will also receive the prizepool of 10k Gold Coins as well as be showcased as a Heroes of Newerth Loading Screen. Congrtulations!

 

We are running another HoNmas competition; this time it will be a Winter Wonderland theme.

Cheers.
