View Full Version : 2004 LOK ART CONTEST - Post Art here!!

11th Mar 2004, 19:37
Hello Artists!

Back by popular demand, we're having another Legacy of Kain series Art Contest! Any original piece of artwork based on the Legacy of Kain series is welcome. Submissions can be drawings, computer art, paintings, sculptures, metalwork or any other art-related piece you can come up with. The deadline for the contest is April 15th, 2004 and will be judged by some members of the Defiance Team, Umah and myself. Judging will take place over the next week.

Now for the rules:

* Submission images need to be kept at or below 500 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall and 100 KB in file size if you're going to post them directly in the forum. If you don't wish to size your image in this manner, feel free to post a link to the full-sized image. (Posting a small thumbnail that links to the full-sized image is also acceptable).

* Acceptable image formats include: .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .bmp or .png. Any file that prompts a download will not be judged.

* No plagairism, image theft or bandwith leeching. Submissions must be of your own creation and not someone else's. Additionally, please host images on your own webspace and link to your own webspace. Remote-linking (aka bandwith leeching) will result in disqualification.

* Appropriate imagery only! Submissions must comply with the TOU of our community. Also, please keep your submissions PG-13 or below.

* Only one entry per person. Any of you who submit multiple entries from different forum member names, will be disqualified.

The Prizes are as follows:

1st Place: Raziel Statue
2nd Place: LOK: Defiance Poster signed by some members of the Defiance team and a Defiance Beanie
3rd Place: Soul Reaver 2 Crew T-shirt and SR1 Strat guide
4th Place: Raziel action figure
5th Place: Kain action figure

I will do my best to get as many members of the Defiance team to sign all the above prizes!

Miscellaneous Information:

* This thread is reserved for final entries only! A contest discussion thread has been set up here:

* Rate your submission by using the following resources:



(If you live outside of North America and have a different rating system, use ratings that are comparable to what is provided on these two sites).

* If you need help resizing or reoptomizing (including file size and image formats), or need assistance hosting your submission, contact Umah via private channels and she can help you out.

* Any questions, comments or other concerns regarding any of the above can be brought to my attention via PM's, email or AIM or Umah's attention via PM's or email. (This information can be reviewed in our forum profiles).

Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Title: The Last Laugh
Size: 8.5 x 14.25
Medium: Acrylic on canvas (retouched in Photoshop)

30th Mar 2004, 22:34
Alright, I managed to finish something new, so here is my entry. Someone at DeviantART called him "Raziel of the Rockies" and I like that alternate title, lol. I think the murals of SR2/LoKD inspired this one, if it isn't obvious. The background was inspired by scenery in the Pacific Northwest (North America). I wonder if anyone can guess which mountain inspired one of the ones in the picture actually, hah. Probably not. Tools: Painter 7, Photoshop 7 and a Wacom Graphire. (does bashing my head on my tablet count? Wings are EBIL!!)

Raziel: "Where are my skiis?!"

No, I am not very funny, though I try. :p Oh well.. onto the actual entry... I give you; Raziel, EH!

Here's my entry. I'm not quite satisfied with how his left arm turned out, but over all its one of my best. It started out as just a new way for eyes and this is what happened.

and if Yahoo fails...


As a backup link. Eithe way, their the exact same picture. I just don't put a lot of faith in Yahoo's accessability.

Don't mind me. There's a lot of 'what if's floating around LoK...and this is one of them.

It's a pic of Kain (http://www.deviantart.com/view/6440175/) :D

Any comments would be appreciated. ^^

12th Apr 2004, 18:33
for the longest time I wanted to submit something new, but I couldnt find a good enough Idea that would take less than a month, but since i couldnt Im going to have to enter something I already have.

Lieutenant Raziel (http://img1.imageshack.us/my.php?loc=img1&image=charcoleRaziel.jpg)

I only have a digital Camera, not a scanner, so sorry that the image is a little crooked. The Picture has not been enchanced on a Computer in anyway, aside from makng it grayscale, because my camera gives off a slight red and green highlight.

13th Apr 2004, 00:26
here is my entry..although to see what they are saying, you mighthave to save it and blow it up to the proper size. XD


13th Apr 2004, 01:32

Nice guys always finish last - that must be why Mobius (http://www.spiritnoir.com/pictures/enlighten.htm) is always the first on everything ;)
Great character, so my contribution goes to him. Pencils and PS.

Well I am no artist, and make no claim to be. But.........

Here is my rather bad attempt at The Pillars of Nosgoth (http://www.bjefferson.freeserve.co.uk/jeffers/pillars.jpg)

Enjoy, if possible :)

A scene we all know but never ever really saw,
Damning the Pillars (1280x1024) (http://home.wanadoo.nl/carladehaan/Damning the Pillars.jpg)

I have made a 3D model of the Pillars collapse. AKA the moment which Kain damned the Pillars to eternal decay.
I have created this with 3D Studio Max 5 (The Pillars, Mountains, Ariel & Fledgling Kain) and Photoshop 7 for the textures used in the 3D model. The sky background is also created with Photoshop 7.

Okay, here’s my attempt:

Here's my entry...

Ironical Hierarchy (http://www27.brinkster.com/razieluk/FINAL-PIECE.jpg)

Basically, this pic refers to what is revealed in LoK Defiance...

Upon first glance it appears that Raziel is standing before his master the Elder God, ready to serve. However, upon taking a closer look, one can see that the Elder God remains in the shadows... for Raziel is the true master as he alone has the power which could destroy the Elder God.

Kain's Adversary
15th Apr 2004, 20:20
hi guys :D :D

I made a drawing of Kain's Adversary.
Kains Adversary has been resurrected by Janos when he was possesed by the Sarafan Lord. This is why Kains Adversary has the looks of a vamp but the powers of both of the races. With Raziel out of the way he is now the hylden warrior and thus Kains real Adversary:eek:

I draw it with a pencil and then colored it in with photoshop 5.1
( I am not to handy with a computer:( )

well here is the link
