The Art Forum was an irregular feature of the Puzzle Pirates forum run by Nemo. His original rules and introduction are quoted below:

"Welcome to the Puzzle Pirates Art Forum. In the effort to foster an even tighter artistic community I propose this Art Forum. Here I hope to have players of varying skills meeting, sharing, learning and producing artwork."

The Process:

  1. Nemo will propose a topic. The topic will be open-ended and serve as a guideline for your piece.
  2. Anyone who wants to play along can then make a picture that fits the topic and post it to thread along with any comments.
  3. Anyone participating can then post comments (praise, suggestions, etc.) about any pieces so far that week.
  4. After about a week we all do another, and so on.

General guidelines:

  • Keep it brief.
  • Have fun.

Guidelines for submission:

  • Work must be original, of course
  • If you used references or preliminary drawings please post them too so everyone can see the process.
  • If your image is bigger than, say, 200x200 pixels, provide a link instead of posting directly in the forum. However, a smaller version within your post would be good too.
  • The topic is a suggestion. Use it to generate ideas or ignore it completely.
  • Everything else is open. Whatever medium you like, whatever style, scheme or composition.

Guidelines for critique:

  • You must give more than just "I like it." Say why so that the artist (and all the rest of us) can know what worked well and what didn't.
  • Don't bring in issues from the game. This community has been very good about leaving in-game conflicts in-game, but I just want to reiterate.
  • Enjoy yourselves. We're all going to be talking about each others' work and we are all works-in-progress. Relax and learn with us and promote the same feeling.


  • Winners may win an ingame item such as a trinket or a furniture, and commonly Star points.
