So much talent! We had to take it to a company-wide vote to select the winners for this contest, and everyone at DE agreed there were too many incredible submissions to put just one in-game. That is why both the first place and second place masks will be added to Nakak's shop! I can't thank you enough for sharing your beautiful designs with us. We admire your creativity.

Here are the Venetian Carnival contest winners:

Is digital art ok? I’m not.. good at sculpting haha. 

Also, does the mask have to be based after factions/characters in warframe or can it be based after things outside of the game?

it says original illustration i think that means the base art for it

are you able to like draw them on paper than post it?


Yes, of course! Digital art, physical art, or even pictures of an actual 3D mask would all be welcome. What's important is that our artists clearly understand the concept so they can recreate it in-game. 😄

Tribal/organic/Sentient theme, no futuristic nor mechanical one then. Maybe I'll go for a bit of fleshy horror :3

is there any specific theme?

We want you to feel free to get creative, but make sure your design will suit the style of the other masks in Nakak's shop! A design that is smooth and modern won't work, for example.

Can the masks be full faced? Or can it only be like the one in the picture? 

Covering the full face is fine!

So, I'll start this by saying that I make no claim to this picture. That's Mirage Prime, our resident Harlequin and the Warframe we should all be celebrating in this world during such event. As such, I'd personally love a Mirage mask for my operator, and I'm pretty sure Nakak could just cut this design from cardboard and use some colored pencils.
