Cooldown Timer: Contest Timeframe
The Battle Gems Fan Art Contest:
- Begins Monday, March 24, 2014
- Ends Sunday, April 6, 2014, at 11:59pm EST (server time)
- All entries must be submitted to @AQWcontest Twitter page before 11:59pm EST/server time on 4/06/14
Contest Rules (follow these EXACTLY, or your entry will be disqualified!)
This is the most important part of the whole contest. Read all the rules below BEFORE entering your Battle Gems Fan Art submission. Because if you don’t follow the rules, then you’ll be disqualified, and that is oh-so totally lame.
Follow EACH rule if you want your entry to be considered eligible.
- Create Battle Gems-themed Fan Art! You can Draw, Paint, Flash, Photoshop, 3D Print, Sculpt, Bake/Decorate, Comic-strip, Cosplay, or create a Stuffed Animal/Plushie of anything relating to Battle Gems. Get creative here, folks!
- Your Battle Gems Fan Art MUST BE created by YOU. And only YOU. No tracing, and no teaming up with friends, sorry. You CAN use in-game art, but get creative with it (don't just copy-paste the image, we know what our art looks like... since we created it lol!)
- Your Fan Art entry MUST include your AQW Character Name somewhere on the picture. No name = no chance at winning, and the possibility of someone else stealing your hard work. Please write/sign your AQW Character Name legibly so I can actually read it =)
- Also, put the date your entry so no one tries to steal your Fan Art during future contests (because you know some sneaky scoundrel will try)!
- Type your AQWorlds Character Name in your Tweet BEFORE submitting. That way, if you win, I can easily copy your Character Name for faster prize awarding and no mistakes.
- After following ALL THE RULES above, submit your awesome Battle Gems Fan Art entry to www.twitter.com/AQWcontest
Handy Dandy Checklist
Check off each thing below before submitting your entry to ensure your chance at winning!
- Battle Gems Fan Art created by you

- The date on your entry
- Type your AQW Character name in your Tweet to @AQWcontest
- Upload your Battle Gems Fan Art picture to your Tweet to @AQWcontest

Love the Legion!
Dage Fan Art Contest Winners!
FINALLY! Your wait (and mine!) is over! The winners to the Dage the Evil Fan Art Contest have been announced. With over 850 entries, this was BY FAR the largest, most epic, and most EVIL contest to date!
Grand Prize Winner
Holy Underworld! Check out the ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING work of Jultane_x! For your undying devotion to the Undead Legion, Dage the Evil has specially crafted a one-of-a-kind weapon for Jultane_x. Jultane_x, you totally earned the Jultane_X's Legion Blades—and all the bragging rights, too!
There could only be one grand prize winner… but these epic entries are second best in Dage the Evil’s eyes! Dage has specifically crafted an exclusive Undead Legion Cape for the following Runner Ups: the Looming Legion Paragon! Wear it in pride and feast off the jealous souls! Mwahahahah!
Graphic Dage Design
Woah! These Undead Legion followers sure know how to use Photo Editing software! For their hard work and impressive graphic design, Dage wants to give you 1,000 AdventureCoins. Great job!
Lelouch vii britania
Lupus The Wolf
Marina of Norway
Have Your Cake and Eat It Too
Deliciously devious Dage desserts! These entries look good enough to eat… and there’s one you CAN! These entries take the cake and shall receive 600 AdventureCoins for cookin’ up their masterpiece.
Pencil is Mightier than the Caladbolg Sword
Give these artists a hand for their amazing drawings created by hand! It took a lot of skill and a LOT of patience to create these drawings… just like farming for Legion Tokens! You get 600 AdventureCoins for your handiwork!
WOWZA! Dage the Evil was blown away by your real-life 3D skillz. Please accept 600 AdventureCoins as a token of his appreciation for your crafting abilities! (And can I get those shoes in pink, please?)
For Shame: No Names
There were so many entries that DID NOT include their AQW Player Name! And not to mention… so many AWESOME ones that made it to the final round. But, in the contest rules, in huge font and bolded:
“7. Include your AQW character name on your submitted picture AND in your post so we know who to award the prizes to!”
Just like in school, if you don’t put your name on your paper, you can’t get credit for your hard work =( And it’s not fair to those who followed the contest rules and included their player name, you know?
If you DID have an amazing piece of art, but DID NOT include your AQW player name on your submission, check your Inventory Bag later today and see if there’s a Note from Dage the Evil. He might toss you some Undead Legion Tokens for your hard work. Maybe. If he can remember your name =p
Thank you to everyone who participated in this contest! We wish you all could have won—but then it wouldn’t be a contest! Keep up your amazing artistic endeavors and someday you too can be as skilled as Dage the Evil himself. Promise =D
And a super mega special THANK YOU to the volunteers for helping manage the Dage Contest with me =D
I couldn’t have done it without them, so if you see them in game, make sure to give them much love and /cheers!
Long live the Undead Legion (and all the SWEET stuff Dage the Evil has for us)!
