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.

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.

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!

Your too kind thank you! I can see admin potentially doing a red color scheme, but you'll have to wait and see! I'd love to see one personally.

time to resubmit mine o7

Alchemist's Outfit
-Alchemist's Beret
-Alchemist's Outfit
-Alchemist's Sigil
-Alchemist's Flask
-Alchemist's Snake (or Jewel) Staff

-Philosopher ('s Stone?) (red, gold, browns, etc)
-Aurum (or Albedo) (ivory, white, gold, yellows)
-Argentum (silvers, black, grey, blues or purples)
-Genesis (greens, more nature-y tones)

The hat has lace on the bottom, and the red hair framing the avatar's face is braids. Meant to be a different color from the rest of the hair. Buckles, buttons and lace are a big thing on the outfit. The belts also have some bags for storing alchemist things. The female outfit does have some hanging tassels on the right side.
There's a snake on the staff because of the caduceus thing? Don't remember where that came from :p
Whole outfit has a bit of a victorian vibe.
Head, Outfit, Back, 2 held. Color scheme displayed could be called Philosopher's Stone?

Haunted Apothecary
inspired by the fact that my hometown has a haunted apothecary shop

So I did most of it on the female base lol. First is the hair, Apothecary's Locks. I was thinking of both a long and a short option, with the short being on the male base at the bottom in red. I've also done four different potential color palattes based of poisonous minerals used as dye, but only used the Arsenic and Cinnabar palattes.

Next is Apothecary's Night Cloak. This is pretty much the same for male and female. I only finished the Arsenic palatte for this one.

Next is the outfit, Haunted Apothecary's Garb. I have the female one with the Arsenic palatte isolated, and the male with the Cinnabar palatte is at the bottom. That one has the Locks too. The male one is admittedly missing a pouch and some glowing herbs (whoops) but should be about the same as the female.

Now to the helds! I had two options for it, but I didn't really flesh out either one. One is the Apothecary's Pill Bottle. The other is the Apothecary's Lancet (which is a blade historically used for the same purposes as leeches in European/ Early American medicine)

I did include an Accessory, but that also didn't get fully colored. I think I intended for him to have glowing eyes or the like.

So here's the full female base ensemble with the lancet! It is once again in the Arsenic palatte, but if you look to the top left corner I have the other palattes labled there.

And last but certainly not least, is the male outfit and short hair. I have the outline of the cloak there but it didn't get colored in.

So this is based on a Revolutionary War era Apothecary and Physik Shop in my hometown, that is allegedly very, very haunted. I thought it would be an interesting thing to think about. That is also why the clothes are the way they are. I was legit looking at one of my coworkers who also works in that apothecary shop (I work in a haunted historic tavern in the same organization) and stole his fit. So they're pretty historical. I had a lot of fun making these, and I hope you all enjoy!
