One of my favorite traditions here at iRO is our fan submitted artwork that graces the screen when you load into the game or move from map to map. From serious to silly, these loading screens are an expression of the creative power of Ragnarok's fans! Every few months, we change these loading screens out, highlighting new and returning artists, special events like St. Patrick's and Valentines day.
Our last thread got pretty darn long, so I've broken out a new thread with some important rules to keep everything Kosher in regards to our artists and posters.
-Post the loading screens in this thread
-Size: 1024x768 (RO's native resolution)
-Artists are encouraged to put their name and deviantart/art website link on the loading screen if they wish to do so
-Putting your own/friend/guildmate/guild name on a loading screen is allowed as long as it is not used for poking fun or putting down.
-Art must be more or less safe for work, no profanity or explicit imagery.
-Must be finished artworks
-Ragnarok Online Intellectual property only please, though it'd be rad if Mickey mouse was in Midgard, I don't think that Disney would much cotton to that concept.
-Must be posted by the artist or with acknowledgement that the work was commissioned and posted with clear permission to use as a loading screen from the artist. We have had cases of artwork being modified or used without the permission of the artists which is very not cool. If your name on the artwork is not the same as your posting account, please note that the screen is your work.
-Unique Headgears are given away as a "thank you" to the artist. Even with a commissioned work, the headgear will go to the artist and they decide what to do with it.
-Not all screens may be choosen, but all submissions from that batch will be archived (see below)
-Loading screens will be archived on the website like so: http://www.playragna...aspx?id=249&p=1 after they are out of rotation.
