GW2 Armor compo

And now for something completely.... EPIC! ArenaNet and Sketch Club present our first Guild Wars 2 compo!!

For this compo you get a chance to show off your skills designing your very own Guild Wars 2 armor set! To help you get started just hit the Select image button in the Layers UI and you'll see male and female templates for this armor compo. Select either one then have a blast painting whatever sweet armor design you can come up with on top!

If you're looking for some inspiration be sure to browse through some of the amazing Guild Wars 2 concept art or read some of the lore behind the game!


In addition to the fabulous glops you receive with all compos, the winning design will earn its creator a copy of The Art of Guild Wars 2! And not just any copy mind you, expect signatures from some of your favorite ArenaNet artists on Sketch Club!


Update: Wow we passed 100 entries!! To celebrate 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place will each get $10 iTunes gift cards!
