Hey look! That's my art! in Events Posted May 25, 2020 · Report reply 9 hours ago, Von Sky said: The prizes are very "cheap"... 30 event points? really? How is that going to motivate the artists to participate in this event? I recall in the old server, me and mel a.k.a. gcq were paid more than our art's worth. We participated in making loading screens before and we were paid with creds not some cheap event points. Also when GM Lux from the old server commissioned us to make art for cards, we were paid 20c-30c for each card. A Costume Artist Hat( if it's ugly it aint worth it coz there are so many cool costumes out there ) and 30 Event points. Do we even need that? I do like the Title Famous Artist tho but still don't need it, because I was famous back then for making art. might as well make a big sign "HEY I'M A FAMOUS ARTIST!" and I can just simply change my guild title to "Famous Artist". "Worthy artworks will get a chance to negotiate artwork value with the Staff Team."Sounds very shady. If the art is not deemed worthy based on how you judge the art, it's gonna make the artist feel really bad. Trust me! *raises the red flag* you should just keep it simple like 1st prize 50c + 10 EP 2nd prize 25c + 10 EP 3rd prize 10c + 10 EP Other participants will just get 10 EP for their effort. If we keep it as simple as 50/25/10c for 1st/2nd/3rd prize, then if there are 3 arts that are already submitted here, other artworks will be discouraged. We want to make sure that each art submitted here should have fair chance to participate. Also, on your point, about the "worthy" word, there's many times where art is simple enough but creative, or detailed, if we go by votes or something, both can land into 1st place, but having their own value based on efforts gives the chance to gain something for simple arts as well as detailed arts too. 5 hours ago, gcq said: Well to sum it a bit better up; the prizes are basically too underwhelming. (And yes I understood the second part with "you can negotiate with GMs since they buy your art") But the point of an event is; give people a shiny nice prize in luring them into participate. 30 EP is not luring at all (for the most people, I mean let's be real, that shop needs a revamp too -like the whole server-). I mean, what would get your attention? Having 5c as prize or 50c? And yes I agree on that last note with Vonneh, from an artist perspective that "negotiate" sounds so shady. I know you guys didn't meant to make it sound so shady, but it feels, since, who tells me that we get to a reasonable price together. And then on a second thought, IF you were willing to pay that negotiated price, then why not just made it a fix main event prize in the first place? That would lure in probably a lot more people. Who defines if my art is "worthy"? What if my skill level isn't that high, that might discourage some since they could think like "my art isn't worth anyways". On a side note; I had also said that event has way too much going on for that short time (Card Art, Load Screen AND whatever that patcher thingy falls into); that should had been 3 separate contests, with maybe 3 different sets of prizes (maybe even 3 different costumes and titles?). Also I still demand a picture of that Artist Costume hat. :v Rant over, have a nice day. I see your first point of not luring the participants, but what if we just had 3 prize and 3 great artworks are already submitted? that would also discourage new participants, so having fixed price is something that was taken off the list. Also, It's not everyone niche to do loading screen/etc, some people likes to do all, some might have particular niche.
