OC contest Open

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 1, 2017, 8:30 AM


UPDATE 03/25/17: 6 days left. If anyone needs an extension, let me know but I can only extend it to April 3rd. So far there are six entries.

 If you would like to see the entries submitted so far, you can find them here:
missriku.deviantart.com/favour…

So about once a year I host a contest and it's been about a year since my last one.

Theme

So by the time this contest ends Valentines Day will be over but only by a few weeks. So I thought that would be fitting for a theme. :3 Valentine's Day, in my opinion, is for love in general. Whether that be between lovers or between friends. Of course some people also see it as a painful day for anyone who is single too.

So that is your theme, to draw one or more of my OCs with the theme of love. Be that the love between friends, lovers or a lack of.


Start and end dates:

This contest begins as soon as I submit this journal and ends on March 1st. That should give about 2 months to draw. Although I may extend it.

The exact time for the deadline is 7 pm US central time.

Mediums allowed

Digital art (pixels animations etc), and Traditional art. I don't have time to read literature and I can't properly judge it either. ^^;


Judging:

Will be done by me. Interpretation of the theme (creativity), keeping to characters' personalities and skill will all be taken into account.


Rules:

  • No sketches or unfinished work
  • must be new art
  • Please don't trace or use a base/lineart
  • You may submit tasteful mature content work for characters that are 18 years or older. No porn or fetishes please. Also if it needs  mature tag, make sure it has one.
  • Your entry must be submitted to your DA account. To send it to me you can use the mention feature, comment here or on my profile or you can send it via note.
  • Please give credit that the characters are mine and link back to the journal in your artist comments of your entry.
  • You may enter twice but can only win once.
  • Backgrounds are not necessary but will help your chances of winning.
  • If you are drawing traditionally please don't use lined or grid paper
  • You can change their outfits a bit. Meaning they still need to be kimono-ish but you can change the design a bit to fit scene/time of year or just because you want to. :3 Also if their hair is normally down, you can draw their hair up, for example. Or vice versa.


If you are unsure of something, feel free to ask via note! :3


Characters you can use. Character bios are in the artist description of the character's ref sheet.

Well, if you look at my gallery I am unsure if my works can be classified as incomplete and not eligible. Does that mean it must include colors and all?

It can be black and white if it fits your theme. However there has to be some sort of shading.

Well the process will be too long and will be delayed many times due to life so I guess I must decline from participating.

You would think I would be better at remembering names since my job pretty much relies on me remembering all the names of the residents. ^^;

I will edit the prizes when I get the chance :3
