6th Lord of Chaos Fan Art Contest winners announced!
Rock n’ roll concerts can get pretty wild… but none can compare to the literal battle-of-the-bands with Chaos Lord Kimberly from One-Eyed Doll! Here are the Chaos Lord Kimberly fan art submissions that hit the high note amongst the AQW team, and totally deserve a standing ovation (aaand prizes).
Grand Prize Winner: 6th Lord of Chaos
Encore! Encore! EixandrieL created this spectacular Fan Art of Chaos Lord Kimberly!
For your meticulous masterpiece, please accept: 1,000 AdventureCoins, the exclusive color-custom Chaos Paintbrush + Chaos Artist Palette dual weapon set, the Art of Chaos character page badge, AND your art as an in-game House Item (which will be released at a future date)! Now… how can we convince EixandrieL to make one of Beleen? =)

Above and Beyond
OMG, now this is music to MY ears! Fellow player Phobia created this chaotically adorable Kimberly and Pony Gary Yellow, inspired by the Internet’s favorite kitty cat meme!
For your chaotic craftsmanship, Phobia will get 600 AdventureCoins, the Color-custom Chaos Paintbrush polearm, and the Art of Chaos character page badge. Kawaii Chaos Kimberly!
So very talented, but…
Yesterday I explained the differences between Referencing and Tracing artwork. And today, the entire AQW team was all =’( because we had to disqualify the following Chaos Lord Kimberly entry:
Most great artists find inspiration by referencing another’s artwork. But, as you can see, this Kimberly entry falls within the definition of tracing. Of course, the guitar was changed, the outfit heavily modified, and the facial expression and hair was all unique… but the pose, the outline, and the fingers all came directly from the above image.
This Kimberly artist (I hid their name for privacy) is obviously extremely talented and a gifted artist, but sadly, we cannot award them a prize due to the fact that this is not their own original artwork. Had they merly referenced the photo, and created something new and unique using the anime girl’s photo as inspiration, then we would have awarded them the Grand Prize—but we have to disqualify them as it is not original artwork =(
Do not be discouraged, player-who-shall-not-be-named! You possess AMAZING talent, and we know you’re capable of creating a masterpiece using your own imagination (and photo editing software of choice).
We look forward to seeing your newest entry in the next contest <3
You rocked it, everyone!
Let’s give a round of applause for our Chaos Lord Kimberly winners! …aaand the crowd. Goes. Wild! (Woah, did a mosh pit start over there, too?!)
(Winners: it might take a few days to get the prizes added to your inventory, and we’re working on creating the Grand Prize winners’ work into in-game house items, so thank you for your patience!)
Stay tuned to the Design Notes, as we will announce our 7th Lord of Chaos Fan Art contest winners tomorrow.
Rock Out in Battle On!

See the Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners!
The first ever Chaos Fan Art Contest was a HUGE success—over 900 entries were submitted!
It's over 9000--oh wait. I modified the meme. Deal with it.
And, as you can probably imagine, it was quite chaotic to review each and every submission, place them in front of a panel of judges, and narrow down all our favorites—aaaand not to mention, having to coordinate ALL OF THAT around vacation time, sick days (*cough* like me *cough*), graduations, and the like!
So I am pleased to report that we will begin announcing the Chaos Fan Art Contest winners today—starting with the 1st Lord of Chaos, Escherion!
Find all your Chaos Lord Fan Art Contest Winners shown in the links below:
As Friday is release day, we will *most likely* have to wait until Monday next week to resume the Lord of Chaos Fan Art winners. Unless I get A LOOOT of coffee in my system or something. MAN THE COFFEE MAKER, ALINA!
Super Special Thank You!
Our wonderful AQW Mods and Volunteers helped make the Chaos Fan Art Contest a HUGE success. We could not have gathered all 934 entries withtout their help, so when you see these guys and gals in game, be sure to give them a great big /hug and a joyful /cheer!
Asuka, Capn Cio, Eonaleth, Gjappy, Judge Acumen, Rarest, Soki, Tendou no Mazo, Tenzan, and Zereldo!
Alrighty, enough chit-chat; I know you’ve been waiting FOREVER for the winners, so let me get back to work so you can feast your eyes on Chaos Lord Escherion Fan Art!

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)!
