Hello everyone! We will be holding an Avatar Item Design contest for the 2022 Spring Festival! Please make sure to read the rules carefully!

Contest Rules

1. Design Avatar Items for this Festival. Please use the provided bases to draw your designs on.

Male Avatar Base
Female Avatar Base

The following can be included all in one entry for Avatars:

1-3 Avatar Held Items
1 Avatar Outfit Item (Male and Female options allowed)
1-3 Avatar Head Item
1 Avatar Cloak Item
1 Avatar Accessory Item
1 Avatar Tail Item
1 Avatar Wings Item
1-2 Avatar Aspect Items
1 Avatar Background Item

2. You must draw your new Items on the provided Avatar bases. If you feel that your drawing skills aren't great, then you can include a description in addition to your drawing in order to help us better envision your Items. If you are unable to draw something, then we are sorry, but there will be no exceptions. Your submission must look like it required some amount of effort to create. For example, drawing a few straight lines on a canvas and saying that they're "armor" will not count towards participation.

3. Avatar Items submitted must be Themed to this Festival. This means that it can be anything related to the season, such as any holidays that occur within the season, weather, etc.

4. Please do not reserve posts. If you reserve a post, we will delete your post.

5. Please do not Ping me with your submission. Please only Ping me if you have a question.

6. Before submitting your entry, please make sure to scan the thread to see if someone else has already done something similar. Try to make your entry unique and if someone has already done something that you were wanting to do, then we highly suggest that you pick something different. If you feel that someone has "copied" your design, please do not say anything to that person - especially in this thread. We will intervene ourselves if we see something that's suspicious.

7. You may only submit ONE official entry for the Items listed above. If you wish to submit more, then you can send me a PM with drawings of your ideas. However, all PM'd entries that are sent to me will not count for prizes.

8. IMPORTANT: By participating in this contest and submitting your designs to us, you agree that we, Sylestia Games LLC, will retain full rights to your submission to use as we see fit for the purposes of and Sylestia Games LLC. You will not receive any royalties or reimbursement from us if we decide to use your designs, or otherwise. Any designs that we pick will be recreated from scratch by our art team; we will only be using your submission as a reference for said artwork. We reserve the right to alter your design in any way that we see fit and are not obligated to adhere to any specific depictions or descriptions that are provided.

9. DO NOT comment on someone's entry unless you have something nice to say. If someone copies your entry, then have faith in us that we will determine the correct winner. Please do not fight over entries. If we see anyone doing this in the thread, then whoever is fighting will be disqualified and potentially receive a Forum Strike.

10. The end date is March 13th, 2022 at 11:59 PM server. After that, there is no guarantee that we will see your entry and the thread will be locked once designs are picked.

Important Copyright Infringement Notice

We are very aware that it's typical to use Google and/or other providers to search for ideas when designing artwork. However, it is extremely important that all of your submissions are created entirely by you and are not copied from another's work. If you are using other artwork as a reference, please ensure that your submission is changed sufficiently to be clear and obvious that it is indeed your work. This is extremely important, not just for ethical reasons, but also for legal reasons when we are implementing something onto our site. Thank you!

Held ideas:
- a pixie companion to match the new rikki trait!
- a broadsword or rapier with thorns around the blade and a flowery motif


Head is a veil(female) and flower clip(male). Both would have little strands of beads hanging from them.

With petal cape and/or wings xD

Spring is the perfect time for flower-filled garden teaparties, so my submission is a victorian and greenhouse inspired whimsical look. The looks were in part based on Alice in Wonderland, but since the book is in the public domain and these are my own, original designs for the characters, I thought that would be ok. I picked these characters because they attend an unbirthday teaparty in the book :>

Avatar Held Items: Teaparty Attendant
Avatar Outfit: Teaparty Attire
Avatar Head Item: Teaparty Fascinator
Avatar Wings Item: Snapdragonfly Wings
Avatar Tail Item: Snapdragonfly Tail

Alternative color palettes/themes:

Still to add:
Avatar Aspect Item: Teaparty Illumination (snapdragonflies with firefly abdomens)
Avatar Background Item: Lively Teaparty (greenhouse with table set up for tea)

Lacy Gardener Set

Lacy Gardener's Tunic
Lacy Gardener's Straw Hat
Lacy Gardener's Sweater

Would love to see pants that are the same whether you use the male or female base, and a head option that isn't across the eyes in any way.

Thinking either sewn-on flower patches on the pants, or possibly something more just decoration depending on how much detail goes in. Lacy accents at the neck and bottom of the tunic. Couldn't think of a good way to represent embellishment on the belt, but that could be nice.

And for a cloak/accessory, something like a sweatshirt or sweater tied around the shoulders like it got warm on a nice spring day.

Here is my entry:

I was inspired by the bees/honey theme, so all the designs are kind of related to this.
Also inspired by Queen Bee, so its like a Queen dress outfit.

Hope you all like it!

First is the full Royal Bee-Honey outfit:

- Head item: Honey drops/amber crown
- Outfit item: Bee hive dress (honeycomb pattern), including gloves
- Wings: Bee inspired wings
- Heald item: Honey dipper scepter

Then the other held item option:

- Heald item: Flower + honey pot + bee/bumblebee

And some more pics:
