This comes to us from Rupert Avery

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
