Tree of Savior

Fan Art Exhibition vol.1


#1

Greetings Forum-Saviors, Staff Letitia here!

As we near the end of our 7th Fan Art Festival, Monster Mash, I thought it would be fun to showcase the winning work from our 1st Fan Art Festival and to also share with everyone a little peek “behind the scenes” of what was going on in the minds of the Staff while preparing for the 1st Fan Art Festival.

So here’s a little bit of Fan Art history.

Way back when, on July 19th, 2016 to be exact, we officially announced our very first Tree of Savior Fan Art Fest! This Fest was in response to the fan art that was being uploaded onto the forum at the time and was an attempt to acknowledge and applaud the creative souls of the ToS fandom. Although the Staff was unsure how many submissions they would actually receive, they gave it a shot, regardless.

And to their surprise nearly 200 submissions were uploaded to the forum. The theme was a simple one – submit a work that reflected the adventurous world of Tree of Savior – but the battle for the chance to win the in-game title “Creative Soul” was fierce.

From these submissions received 10 were selected by the Staff.

Who were these lucky winners? Scroll down to find out and to read some of the Staff’s thoughts as they reflect on the work that was chosen.

Once again, congratulations to our 1st Fan Art Festival winners!

The Staff were delighted to see all the wonderful submissions of the 1st Fan Art Festival. They were surprised not only by how many players participated but also by the quality and level of talent put on display.

Looking back on it now, the Staff felt lucky and #blessed to have so many talented and dedicated fans enjoying and supporting our game.

We can’t wait to see what art is chosen next! :heart_eyes:

When i started playing ToS, submissions from the 1st Fanart festival was the one thing that drew my attention XD


#8

The first few contests winners were selected randomly out of a pool of approved artworks.

This was discussed to be changed with the GMs and turned into the voting system we are using now, which still can use some improvement.
