With TESOFs second contest underway, we thought we would post topics in each of the alliance forums for everyone to brainstorm what type of submissions you'd like to see (or create yourself). Encourage your friends and faction-mates to do their very best! Let's blow the other factions away with our creativity!

What have you guys come up with so far? If you are looking for feedback on your idea, this is the spot!

Caution: Brainstorming ahead!

The poster has to encompass ESO as a beloved game series and as a rich world. Something that shows the fantasy, epicness, and conflict. Something a la Star Wars movie poster, where you get a nice montage of characters and themes. Plus floaty heads and glow effects can scream fantasy epic. Or one could easily go the minimalist, widescope route...(less personal) You know, with a giant canvas showcasing the White Gold tower in flames in the far-off distance, and you see 3 massive armies with the EP, DC, and AD banners converging. Just a far away shot of the grand scale of the conflict. Maybe have Molag Bal leering down from above the tower for a splash of surrealism. Like this:

^Fantasia anyone? This dude scared the crap out of me when I was 5.

My 2 cents. Personally, I'm giving a shot at the 2nd option. I'm not so hot with graphic design. My placements and layout can get awkward, which is crucial for a poster. Also, character portraits (specially fantasy characters) are not my strength. However, I'm not shabby at landscape and architecture paintings, so just playing to my strengths. Minimalist it is.

I think you were referring to a different contest but your ideas could be applied for both.

Here is my submission:

*Image removed

Didn't have enough time to make it more detailed because I'm also working on the other contest.

-Taran is wearing trophies from the generals and commanders he defeated. He marks the trophies with an "X" using his scimitar then pour the fallen general's blood between the cracks
-Ouroboros Lion devoured the Dragon and the Eagle, the remains of the dragon and the eagle are visible.

Yeah @soup2DIE4 is probably referring to the official TESO contest. I don't mind you guys using this thread for both though! Just so people are aware of both contests:

TESOF's Show off your faction pride

ESO's Poster Challenge



Two people with a common goal can accomplish many things. Two people with a common enemy can accomplish even more. -Mr. Gold

I think that to poster should be relevant to what we know about it. Maybe it should be a picture of your soul being stolen, Or just something concerning Molog Bol. You know, with DC coming out on top.

Yeah, you're right. Oops, late night I guess..

Anyway, I guess I'll just make the DC army more in the foreground. Make them the center piece. Place Emeric and his Breton rogue on a hill overseeing the battle? Dunno...

It's entirely up to you, there are so many ways to express your faction pride. I'm sure everyone is going to have the text "Daggerfall Covenant" or the DC Lion symbol on their submission. So I created an artwork that doesn't have the DC title and symbol in it.

I wanted challenge and be able to express my faction pride without the obvious DC representatives such as the Breton rogue from the trailer or King Emeric. If people recognizes my work as DC pride, then I will consider it a success.

Here is my submission, the image that was posted above isn't working for some reason.

*Removed the image

-Taran is wearing trophies from the generals and commanders he defeated. He marks the trophies with an "X" using his scimitar then pour the fallen general's blood between the cracks
-Ouroboros Lion devoured the Dragon and the Eagle, the remains of the dragon and the eagle are visible.

My submission for ESO poster challenge is a bit different. It's a battle scene in Cyrodiil.
