    In the spirit of Christmas and in anticipation for Ultima Forever, Ultima Gallery is running a Christmas Art Contest. I thought it would be fun to get everyone’s artist vibes going and see what we can get from what I know is a lot of talented Ultima Fans out there!

    The Brief
    Draw a Christmas scene with one major character from the Ultima series and their family on Christmas day. This could be the meal, opening presents or something you think the British family would do on Christmas day.
    The scene should include your main character of choice, at least one other member of their family and at least 1 of the 8 Ultima virtues in the form of a symbol, word or played out in the scene you draw.
    Some examples of characters you could base your scene on are:
    Lord British
    Lady British
    King Blackthorn
    The Gypsy

    The Rules
    The piece of art can be hand drawn or done digitally
    It cannot be rude, vulgar or include something that is considered not suitable for PG13
    One entry per person

    How to Submit
    Submissions will be accepted from November 16th until Midnight UK time December 3rd.
    They will be displayed on Ultima Gallery within a few days of submission ending with no names attached.

    After much thought I have come to realise that there is no need to end submissions so early in December and so submissions will now be accepted until the 17th of December an extra 2 weeks!
    So lets see that artistic side of the community!!
