1.1 - everyone starts on basic ranks.
2- choose between the light side (ran by chaosrocks) or the dark side (ran by alti)
3- light siders take the topic in the battle and put their lighter spin on it, while the dark siders use their dark energies.
4- loot, treasure, relics, trophies, all that- are just insentives to keep playing, braging rights etc, there are afew exceptions
- posting wips (work in progress shots) of your images into the main battle topic earns you a dogtag that goes into your inventory section. after afew battels if you have competed you should have afew dogtags.
5- ranking, every player has a rank before their name in their teams inventory section, the higher your rank the more you have competed and the more you have shown speed and grace in your art.
alternatively, it will cost you 5 pieces of loot, to go up 1 rank, just pm me and say you want to rank up. your rank will increase and the icon next to your name in the inventory section will change to the higher rank.
Q:how many ranks are there? -
A:there are 100 individual ranks.
Q:how do you judge the art in the battels ?
A:art is judged useing a multi poll that chaos sets up after ever major battle. - alternatively if chaos is unavailable the Fuzzyeyes studio art team will allocate a winner. winning aside its about drawing and creating something.
Q: i want to join in on a round in progress can i join
A: yes just reply to the main battle thread thats active at the time and ask to join, i'l add you to the inventory and there you go.
Q:why are you doing this, dont you have a life
A:yes i have a life, i'm a concept artist at a studio in brisbane australia, i do this because i'm amazed that given the insentive of afew 80 pixel prizes people will creat beautifull art that might not have been bought into the world before, is that a bad thing ?
Q: whats the deal with head hunters ? can i become a head hunter?
A: head hunters will challenge you for your loots and take your head if they win against you, each headhunter challenge lasts 48 hours and i will post a link here when i have got the challenge list up and running. Basicly you choose from pre defined topics, each topic has 2 parts, one player takes one part , the other player takes the other part, in the end you get 2 pieces of art in the same topic that correspond to another, we choose what piece is better than the other, and the winning player or headhunter gets the defeated players head and loot, then the headhunter goes up in rank.
Q: can we choose our own thing to draw for the battle topics?
A: the topic is set example : battle 3 = Thunderfalls crossing - the river guardian , you can draw whatever you want as long as it fits the topic, better work gets more loot.
Q:how do i get extra loot
A:you can put a link to the art crusade forums or the latest battle into your signature, that will get you extra loot.
Q:how long will you run the art crusade ?
A:ages if people are still interested.
Q: can i make sweet love to you
A: sure. i'l get the peanut butter you bring mr ed
Q: It's possible to change side?
A: yes, pm me and i'l change your team, but please dont change teams all the time.
Q: will there be a seperate thread for all headhunting duels? Or will each duel have its own seperate thread
A:make a thread, call it "yourname" vs "their name" - post your art into that thread.
Q: Is the art to be fantasy based or are the topics open to all genres?
A:fantacy , dark fantacy, gothic , ancient, other worldly, druidic, not sci fi realy but just old school swords etc melee magic etc
Q: can we do futuristic theme ?
A: currently i am putting together a second crusade that takes place in a dark futuristic universe, there is masses of loot and armour and mech, it will be abit more complex than art crusade , the project is called The Obisdian War.

If I sign up, is it like signing up for a Thunderdome where I need to be prepared to go X rounds completing X pieces? Or is it where a battle starts and whoever is available participates?
Just trying to gauge how much of a commitment is needed from participants.
