This legitimately was the hardest thing I had to watch... before Ren Seeks Help, but we'll get to that one soon enough. I was nauseous watching it. I was nauseous editing it, and I can't even watch the video for fear of getting nauseous again. Oh, and that scene with the old man, what did you think about that?

Monthly Contest #01 - Seasons

Fri Aug 1, 2014, 12:54 PM
Oh, guys. Do you remember those little contests I used to host back when I had money for prizes? Me too. And I miss them. So I've decided to ignore my oft-dire financial situation and bring them back.

Yes indeed! So let's get started.

Information



The primary purpose of these contests is to have art-based fun. While there is obviously that element of competition there, the idea is to enjoy the process of creating your art rather than worrying about winning. It's not about perfection, it's not about skill, it's about doing. You have an entire month to enter, during which you can spend as much or as little time on your piece as you like. I only ask that you put effort into you work as this will be partly how I judge the entries.

How to Enter



All you have to do is create a piece of art based on the theme of seasons. Your art can contain references to one, some or all of the four seasons.

You can create any kind of art you like - drawings, pixels, literature, skins, anything at all.

Your art has to be created and must be uploaded during the duration of the contest. Art submitted before the first day or after the last day of the month will not be counted.

Your art must be submitted by no later than midnight Sunday 31st August.

Leave a link to your entry in the comments here and I'll add it to the contest gallery.

And, as ever, if you have any questions just get in touch. Good luck, m'dears!

Prize



The lucky winner will receive one month premium membership. And there might be one or two points given away too.

Entries



Coming soon...





Thank you everyone for participating in my 4th of July Big Event Raffle!
Every month I am giving away a Thigh Up Drawing to a lucky winner!
Just Favorites Icon 3D this journal and you are entered to WIN!
Good Luck!

The Recruit :CONTEST 2:

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 1, 2014, 9:42 PM
Ahh yus.
Another contest.

This contest will be another "Recreate" contest. This time, instead of remaking the cover, I would like to see a remake of an actual page. ^v^
Basically, choose your favorite page from 'The Recruit' and redraw it in your own style! :D

:bulletred: The new remade page must contain the same content as the original. (Meaning it should tell the same scene and have the text.)
:bulletpurple: The style must be your own! (No tracing the original page and no using lineart)
:bulletblue: Must link back to the original page in your description.

Deadline has yet to be decided, it will be sometime in late september / Early october. :D

All comic pages can be found here~ arualmeow.deviantart.com/galle…
Some references can be found here~ arualx50.deviantart.com/galler…
Rainpaw's reference~ www.deviantart.com/art/Ref-she…


----

P R I Z E S

~First place~
:bulletgreen: A forever-feature of the new page you created. It will replace the current page meaning every new reader an re-reader will see it! :D
:bulletgreen: A whooping 800:points: Hell yeah!
:bulletgreen: An art piece! c: (Large art /or/ Journal doll /or/ Icon(s)) Up to three characters.

~Second place~
:bulletyellow: 200:points:
:bulletyellow: An art piece! c: (Large art /or/ journal doll) Up to three characters.

~Third place~
:bulletred: 50:points:
:bulletred: An art piece! c: (Large art /or/ journal doll) One character


(Point prizes may increase if I get some more commissions done! c: )


What will I be judging for?
:bulletblue: Accurate designs! (It kills me when people mess up designs. I will be more than happy to make new references if needed! :D)
:bulletpink: Effort! (Basically whether you cared enough for details or naw)
:bulletblue: Quality! (Goes along with Effort)
:bulletpink: Some other stuff I cannot think of! :D (Awww yeah)


~This contest will be co-judged with CattickElf~
