Big Contest(Win 1 Year PM)CLOSED

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 26, 2012, 3:59 PM

CLOSED



What honestly humbles me the most when it comes to dA, is that even when I am doing absolutely nothing, and seldom comment on your stuff lately (It's not due to me being uninterested, I just have become super busy lately, and I need to adjust my classwork/dA work) I still average at least 50 pageviews a day. I think that is lovely. While I don't look at pageviews when it comes to popularity, it's nice that my inactivity has made it so I am not forgotten.

So to show my appreciation, I would really like to kick my first year off on dA with a BANG. And that is with what? Making my own contest, with what as a grand prize? A One-Year Premium Membership


To Participate

o1. Favorite this journal
o2. Advertise this contest in your groups, journal, etc.
o3. When you have your entry ready (you can make a new one or use an old one), please leave it in the comments so I can favorite it into the judging folder.


Rules

ALL ART IS ACCEPTED



- No word limit if you do literature
- No WIPs (if you need more time, PLEASE notify me in a note at least 48 hours in advance to the deadline)
- As many submissions can be allowed, but I will choose my favorite of those to judge against the others
- You can submit this entry into other contests, as long as you do the above requirements to participate
- Mature content is allowed, if properly labeled
- Photomanipulations need to have proper credit
- If you donate prizes, you can still participate!


Okay, here is the theme!


Celestial Memories


No, no, no! It does not have to be about me (unless you want it to be, but that won't give you an advantage =P)! I mean I want you to incorporate those two words as themes in your piece, the universe, fond memories of your childhood, stars, space, galaxies, dreams, hopes, past, present. Everything! Anything! Let your creativity go wild!


All mediums of art is accepted. And please, if you wouldn't mind, please state it was for this contest.

Trees in the City Contest! Winners!!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 2, 2014, 11:06 AM






I've made a huge error in this contest. The Artist who would have won first place, I unfortunately have to disqualify from the contest. Even With all our voting steps myself and the other admins didn't catch that the entry isn't a tree but in fact a vine. I'm terribly sorry for this mishap, but the other top 9 entries will still have their places.

Sorry everyone, this contest has ended!  You can see the results here; feraligatr66.deviantart.com/jo…
Hello Deviants! Hello 

So, since Halloween is just around the corner, I have decided to throw my 3rd Contest! Pumpkin La  Halloween is probably my favorite holiday, just because of the creepy goodness of it!  Speaking of creepy, this is kind of what this new contest is about. :pumpkin 

Have you ever seen something that is just so cute that it's almost scary?  For example, have you ever heard of these toys called LaLaLoopsy Girls?  Well, if you haven't, here's their website; www.lalaloopsy.com/
Now, I'm not saying that you shouldn't like LaLaLoopsy Girls.  It's just, their little button eyes really freak me out (and it probably doesn't help that I love the movie Coraline XD ).  But anyway  that's what I'm kinda thinking about when it comes to this contest.  If I were to participate, I would draw a picture of some demented LaLaLoopsy Girl, because they are so cute it creeps me out!

In conclusion, draw something cute, harmless, something that couldn't possibly be freaky in any way, and make it the scariest thing known to man.  Sound like fun? :eyebrows: I hope so!


Rules
-Anyone can join!  You do not have to be watcher or anything like that! (And there isn't a limit of how many people can join this time.  I did not like that method I used last time :giantfrown: )
-Must be drawn by you and you only!  No bases or templets or anything like that allowed! :no: 
-The thing you pick may be copyrighted, but please leave credit to who originally made it in the description of your entry.
-Please try not to do fandoms.  I realize that their are some cutely creepy things in fandoms (I mean, in that one Astro Boy episode with Micro Bear...Lets just say that bear gave me nightmares XD), but I would try to stay away from that.  Especially if it's a fandom that is already based around horror, like 'Five Nights at Freddy's' and 'Slenderman'. Slenderman Emote If you do want to do a fandom, please run your idea by me first!
-Blood is allowed, but not gore.  I mean, if there is a little bit of blood dripping from something's eye or mouth (that always seems to do that trick when you want to make something creepy), but a teddy bear stabbing a guy through the chest or something like that Tardkin you may want to note me with that to make sure it is okay for this contest before you submit it to deviantArt.
-Nothing inappropriate.  Keep this a PG rated contest.  Hint hint, if it needs a mature content label, you're doing something wrong.
-Get your picture done on time!  No entries will be allowed after the due date, even if I love you.
-Do not do a doll.  For one thing, dolls are totally cliché.  Second thing, one of my judges has a horrible fear of dolls, and even if this is suppose to be a scary contest, I could not show her that picture because I don't want to give her a heart attack.  And by doll, I mean something like Chucky or that new Annabelle movie that is coming out.  If you do something like LaLaLoopsy, that would be okay.  So no realistic, human looking dolls!
-When you are done with your entry, please either note me or leave a link to it in the comments.
-Be nice and courteous towards other contestants.  If I find out you are bullying/harassing, you are banned from all of my contests :ono:   Just don't do it!
-Only one picture per Deviant.
-Have fun! (Most important rule ever XD)

As for judges, I will not be one of them.  You may find that weird, but hey, I like all you guys.  You guys all have different styles, all of which are AMAZING, so I could never even DREAM of picking you guys apart!  But, I will not be having any friends on deviantArt help either (sorry, I just don't want anyone picking favorites :().  So, you may be asking who the judges are.  For judging, I will be asking a few people I know in real life.  I've got three concrete judges that always seem to pull through when I do a contest.  I will tell you right now, you will be judged on the creativity of your choice!  So, don't do something that has already been done, make something that I couldn't even think of making creepy into something out of a horror film!

  
Here are the prizes;
1st Place; 3 Month Premium Membership  + 100 points + Free Picture drawn by me + Watch (if I haven't already) + Llama (if I haven't already) 
2nd Place; 1 month Premium Memebership + 50 points + Free Picture drawn by me + Watch (if I haven't already) + Llama (if I haven't already)
3rd Place; 30 points + Free Picture Drawn by me + Watch (if I haven't already) + Llama (if I haven't already)
All other contestants will get a free Llama (if I haven't already), a Watch (if I haven't already), and 5 point.

This contests ends October 31st (Halloween, of course) at midnight Pacific Time!  That gives you plenty of time to finish your entry! (And chances are I will not prolong this time.  I was going to post this on October 1st, but then I thought about how posting it now would give you guys more time ^^)

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me!  I will happily answer anything that isn't clear! :cutenod:

Updates: Prize Option available.

Announcement(s):
After all the prep and hopefully a more thought out management process, DHC 2 finally arrives. This contest will be a mix of a "Draw My Character" + "Design an Outfit" kind of event.

If you help set up the contest and or want to contribute, I'll feature you in a journal if you do. You may ask me to feature stuff like Commission or Adopt information as well. See Prizes, Point Fund, and Judging for signups and how to contribute.

Background Info:
Ever notice how in comics, movies, TV shows, etc. the characters usually never change their clothes? That or they must have multiple copies of the same set of clothes they wear every time. In real life this is highly improbable unless we're dealing with someone who rarely showers. Thus I'd think it makes sense if my characters changed their clothes every so often. While I can come up with things of my own, it'd be more fun if I can bring a few more ideas into this project. Or just more art in general.

Rules:
 - Characters to select from come from my story Demon Hunters (DHC = Demon Hunters Contest, get it? bad joke...).
 - What I have in mind is for contestants to draw a character(s) of your choice any way you want like one would in a simple "Draw my OC" style contest, but dress them up in something that's not how they appeared in chapters 1 and 2.
 - Already existing examples include:
Cyril:
Original:
Demon Hunters Chapter 2 Page 0 by dhmanga186 (girl on left)
Done by others:
Kiriban Prize for ~dhmanga186 by RiniBunnie CE: Don't mess with us by AmaranthicalRose dhmanga186 contest by MansdefenderOakgrove

Jin + Jade:
Original:
Demon Hunters Chapter 1 Page 6 by dhmanga186 (Top panel)
Done by others:
[4/12] Jin by blackentz Jin Li dhmanga186 contest entry by 4yukimarukuchiki4  Experiment: Jade with Colored Pencils by dhmanga186 #1 Jade by blackentz Contest Entry - Mischief by LunardreamerEmy CE: Don't mess with us by AmaranthicalRose dhmanga186 contest by MansdefenderOakgrove

 - Of course you can draw anyone, I just have the most examples for these characters above
 - You may draw as many characters in one submission as you want.
 - You may submit as many entries as you want.
 - The entry should focus on one of my characters, not someone else's. Just as to not confuse the judges.

Aside: You see artistic quality and styles of all sorts here. Regardless of those factors and whether you win this contest, I might use your design in the story (with your permission of course) if I like it.For example I might use one of these (maybe with some edits):
Jade by SerenityAme [4/12] Jin by blackentz Experiment: Jade with Colored Pencils by dhmanga186 CE: Don't mess with us by AmaranthicalRose (OK, one of them was drawn by me...)

Deadline: Since school is probably in session for most of us, I'll give you all a longer period of time and suggest Midnight of Jan 3, 2015 (Saturday, before the Sunday). Pacific Standard Time as the deadline. I assume that'll be a break for most of us. This is subject to change

Divisions: You may enter one or both of them. You don't have to enter both.
Commoner's:
I notice one can tell a main character apart from the rest of the bystanders (or who may be important) based on how they are dressed. Look at the first season of RWBY for example. So why not break this trend a bit? By now you probably know who the main characters in my story are, but seeing main characters so dressed so flashy in other cartoons gives them away, and probably gives us a headache at the same time. But that might just be me.

In this division you'd draw them in a more average or normal looking outfit, nothing too overly decorated. You can think of it as if you were to walk outside wearing that outfit you just designed, no one can predict you're cosplaying / dressing up as a fictional character.

(Almost) Unrestricted
This is where I'll let people draw my characters in anything. You can make it look like you'd be cosplaying if you wore that outfit you designed. You can make them look like an anime protagonist, someone's outfit from another series, you can troll (plz indicate this is a troll submission) and dress them in something completely absurd or out of character, etc. Why I made this "Almost" Unrestricted and not "Completely" Unrestricted is because my characters are all under 18. So be careful drawing them in suits if that suit happens to be his/her birthday suit.
Examples include:
Fan Art: Amethys Miyata by KrystalAura Jade (Demon Hunters) by G4B2TER CE - Demon Hunters Jin and Jade Li by AlienAlfredo

Judging: Judging criteria will be based on the artistic quality of the work overall and how well each contestant made the outfit go with the character. Things to consider include; coloring them looks more favorable, multiple characters look better, and the troll submissions probably won't do you too good let's say if you dressed someone in a clown costume or a tutu.

Judging signups are still open until the last day of the contest. If you become a judge, you may not contribute prizes nor participate in the contest. You will be featured if you are a judge. My panel of judges so far are:

CONTEST! (30 USD/1yr PM price!)

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 20, 2014, 11:41 AM
Contest contest contest!

I decided to hold the contest! And it will be a ‘design me a character’ contest!

Now, there are a few rules:
:bulletpurple:Please, NO use of bases! I really want to see your OWN work! Bases may be used for reference if credit is give though.
:bulletpurple:Absolutely no tracing or thief! This includes stealing a design!
:bulletpurple:The contest is for every skill level! I judge after the design not the skill.
:bulletpurple:Please keep it flat-colour, no shading! This is just a personal preference from me.
:bulletpurple:Anthro or feral, up to you! Both are okay with me! Please no humans this time. Sorry human artists!
:bulletpurple:Keep it SFW, no nudity. If drawing anthro, please don’t draw clothes over the private parts, but fluff! (like this: fav.me/d6nnb4s )
:bulletpurple:If you don’t win, feel free to sell/keep the character! However, if you do win, I will keep the character, and I might twerk the design a little. If I do, I’ll tell you so you are aware.
:bulletpurple:The contest ends 12. October.
:bulletpurple:-It is held on DeviantART and FurAffinity.

A few tips, making your chances of winning bigger!
:bulletgreen:I am looking for a female character at the moment!
:bulletgreen:Natural colours with a splash of unnatural is my favourite kinds!
:bulletgreen:Not really looking so much for animals like wolves, foxes, cats, etc. except for huskies! I’d love a husky character!
:bulletgreen:Natural markings can be lovely, but unnatural is too!
:bulletgreen:Thumps up for hair!
:bulletgreen:Collars <3

I’m not a fan of the following:
:bulletred:Sparkle-bright colours.
:bulletred:Fish or insect characters! I’d prefer mammals.

And now, for prizes! Since it’s a design contest, there will only be one winner.
30 USD (Requires you have a Paypal) or 1 Year Premium Membership!
1 Fullbody digital painting!
2 Speedpaint headshots!
Feature on my DeviantART page!

What to do to enter: Simply comment below! If you want to, tag a friend who might bee interested in the contest! (and if you can, do spread the word! It would make me super duper happy and you will get an internet hug!)

Questions? Do ask! I’ll answer!

I hope for you to enter!
