Hi everyone, announcement time.
If you take a look into the rules listed at the top of this topic, you may notice a change – it was recently brought to our attention that part of the ruleset we had discussed many times over the course of this contest, namely that the Artwork cannot significantly modify the MoC in any way, was missing from our posted rule sets.
As of now this has been rectified and added into the rules under heading 4e. Please note that the wording of this rule includes “by omission or addition.” While we expect artwork to be heavily stylized and we have no expectations that people conform religiously to the appearance of Connor’s MoC, we do expect, as has been discussed in the past, that your artwork does not significantly deviate from the MoC.
I would like to be the first to offer apologies to anyone who is in the process of creating their art and who may be impacted by the implementation of this rule. I recognize that while it was a widely circulated aspect of the contest it was also not explicitly stated in the rules and therefore may negatively impact some entrants.
It is my hope that making this announcement will give everyone enough time to modify their entries if necessary, as we currently only have one entry that can be said to break this rule.
If you have any questions or would like clarification, feel free to ask either in this topic or in DM. Additionally, if you are concerned that your artwork may be affected by this rule, feel free to DM me and I can give you a quick risk-assessment.
