    Are we allowed to draw more than one weapon (e.g. a set of daggers) or is it only one?

    I can't give you a solid answer to that. It really depends on the concept of the weapon. If the weapon's concept involves multiple daggers attached to the main weapon, then sure. However, if they are separated, then they are considered multiple submissions. There should be a corpus for the weapon. Use your ideas on it. :)

    Huh.

    Where did you guys get all that cool art for the contest headers? I mean, what you've got there would be a solid (no pun intended) Earth/Magma Elemental (no offense, -Supa :p).

    " Create the weapon that you imagine yourself holding in a fantasy/futuristic setting!"

    It just says weapon so even ur brain could be it i guess, just need to come up with the weapon best suited to your personality i think ;)
    Unless "holding" is to be interpreted very literally, then you'd need smth you can hold with ur hands and use to inflict damage upon another, afterall it's a weapon not a shield :)

    So, for example, my avatar is Optimus Prime, then I have to do a weapon that fits the avatar, or in general...

    If so, then I have the solution:

    [​IMG]I prawn you!!!!

    Your avatar don't limit you, but you can ofcourse go that way if you feel it represents you in a fantasy setting ;)

    There are no limits at this contest; no one will accuse you if your concept-art weapon is not what you actually imagine yourself holding. It is just easier for people to think of themselves holding the weapon they are going to draw than be given the generic order of "draw a weapon". You can refer to the previous contest, that involved a helmet: How would I be: My Helmet.
