Cool My THIEF-iest Things CONTEST Round 4 - LIGHTING - Prize HITMAN ABSOLUTION

Quote:


ROUND: FOUR
THEME: "ILLUMINATION / LIGHTING"


Submit THREE images (side-by-side as in the example below ) of any light source that reminds you of "Thief".


Remember - we're looking for a combination that distinctly says 'Thief' but the theme can be as broad as you choose.
For example, a flickering candle in a medieval window, an old lantern, a crackling fireplace, sunrise over an old city.
You get the idea!

Personal photographs, any form of creative art/drawings and/or images sourced from the internet are all acceptable

OPTIONAL: Add a caption/explanation below... if you think it will enhance your combination.


The winner's prize for this round is: "HITMAN: ABSOLUTION"
Runner-up prize: Purity Fist / Team Fortress 2 Heavy items


CLOSING DATE: 10 MARCH, 2013 / 23:30 GMT



Come out of the shadows, taffers!
Welcome to our regular monthly forum contest - with great prizes up for grabs!

THE CONTEST:
Select and submit THREE images of your "Thief-iest" things on the pre-determined theme.

Let's look at an example of a submission.

Present your images side by side. Use small images/thumbails or create a collage.
If the topic was "Gems", you might consider one of the following ideas:

- a jewelled crown (a photograph, drawing, a crown-shaped cake)
- some crazy insect-infested amber quartz (a nature photograph, a necklace or brooch)
- a box of flashy rings from your local market stall
- a picture of, say, your mother, best friend, bf/gf or pet (a sketch, collage or photograph)... and so on.
Followed by an explanation/caption/quote below (optional) that fits in again with "Thief".

and choose to submit these 3 images as a combination:

Quote:

Garrett: "More gems from the Bafford job - this should help pay the rent!
Stole away one of Cook's delicious cakes for his Lordship - in the shape of a crown though, how more pretentious could he get?!
Her Ladyship's pretty amber pendant, at least that is one spider I don't have to deal with, and something flashy from the Stone Market Plaza merchant... he owed me anyway!"

___


So, there is no time like the present, taffers, let us begin!
Submit your entries in this thread.
Good luck!

Sunlight illuminates a Hammerite cathedral through a stained glass window.

The dark arts practiced by candle light.

An eerie glow emanates from The Haunted Cathedral.

Default Story of a theft

I just can feel that pesky guard looking for a shadow... but the shadow's just seen running down that alley... and now it's hidden somewhere in the night

Gorgeous collections so far, I'm loving this round.


Don't forget you can use a site like picmonkey to create a collage. Very user-friendly. No registration required.
Just select the correct template of three images in a row and choose photos from your computer and drag onto template. You can also adjust the borders as required.

Sure you do.
You have some brilliantly back-lit artwork. Definitely put a package together. I'd love to see it, anyways.

Thanks and I get what you're saying, but I literally do not want Hitman Absolution. I finished it once and I haven't played it since. I even uninstalled it on Steam because it was just taking too much space.

Fine I'll try to dig up some of my thiefy stuff.

Well, taffers, you may as well all have a go while you can because this will probably be the last of our "Thief-iest Things" contests.... but don't worry, we have other things planned.

All right here they are. I can't make one of those compilations because one is animated.

I hope you didn't use the picture there? There's a higher resolution version in the Fan Art thread.

This is the very last round of this particular forum contest, so it would be nice to see as many submissions as possible.
So keep them coming.

Can the image contain content from other games?

reason I ask is because I'm a World of Warcraft player as well, and some areas really lend them to this kind of imagery.

You can use any image you like if you believe it fits in with the theme.
Good luck!

I'm hoping to make a better one with selfmade photo's through the evening. The third picture isn't really something that comes in THIEF, but it kinda reminded me of that .
