Player Gallery and New Jagex Wallpapers!
This month has been a great month for artists all around. The Jagex Team has released the Players Gallery, which hosts a variety of player-made photographs that Jagex have taken a liking to. Players from the ends of the Earth have put together simple cartoon drawings to beautiful photoshop-edited masterpieces, and have submitted them to the Jagex Team over the last month and a half, when they declared that they were going to start something new that players can, with luck, become famous for.
This gallery can be found here, and it hosts a number of inspiring, hilarious, and â€¦ weird pictures. Ever see a lady hugging a shark that would probably heal a bit more then 20 health? How about a mother dragon teaching a baby dragon the proper ethics of â€œmealtimeâ€? What would Dharok have looked like were he alive? Check out real-life sculptures of dagonnoth, castle wars, a giant frog, and even a glass-etched title that any photoshoping fan-site host would love to use. See wizards, warriors, penguins, flamethrowers, and even Postie Pete in the â€¦ erm â€¦ bone.
If you have any spectacular pieces of art that you wish to show off to the world, then send your pictures (preferably pngs or jpegs) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Jagex take their time to examine each picture, and if itâ€™s not hosted, then Jagex perhaps missed it and you could try re-sending it. Either way, donâ€™t give up! I’ve had a submission accepted before (Saradomin’s letters number 21), so it’s possible!
The playersâ€™ gallery has also inspired a number of Jagex artists to pick up their pencils and create six new wall-papers, some new sprite art for bats, bears, and elementals, and a few other minor changes to make Runescape a more beautiful place.
The wallpapers are found in the downloads section of the site. They include sprite art for some creatures, a picture dedicated to the Trouble Brewing mini-game (maybe theyâ€™re desperate), a seat at the gnome restaurant, and even a sneak peak at a new and seemingly dangerous creature in an upcoming 2007 quest!
Hereâ€™s a preview of the updated bears, bats, and rats:
Finally, Jagex have increased the brim-size of the wizardsâ€™ hat, making it look unbearably ugly. *Sarcastically* Thanks a LOT, Jagex!
