The contest is now (for real this time) closed!



Sorry for the confusion, but yes the contest is STILL OPEN for another (almost) 12 hours! Again, sorry for the confusion!

If you have already submitted your entry but it has yet to be accepted, please do not ask us when it will be accepted! We have a big backlog and your entry is fine as long as you have submitted before this journal update.




Hello Members and visitors of :iconinspiretheuninspired:, and welcome to our newest contest!

Our last contest prompted you to think about the prospects of your past and future, and this time we'll be asking you to consider the relationship between your past and present! With the help of our admins and affiliates, we're in the process of compiling a prize list, so you can look forward to watching it grow! We look forward to seeing who participates!:D


Theme: The theme of this contest is "Past and Present." Consider your past and the events and decisions you've experienced and made: which ones have made you the person you are today? Now, keeping those in mind, here is your challenge: show us how you would be different if some pivotal, key event in your past changed drastically or never happened. In other words, if some very important event or decision in your life never actually happened at all or turned out differently than it actually did, what about you and your personality would be different compared to who you are today? What you'll essentially be doing is creating an alternate universe in your story or poem where you "took the other fork in the road" during a major event or decision in your life.

Feel free to interpret the prompt however you like! Entries can be fictional, but we're at least looking for fiction that was inspired by true events.:D Have any questions? Leave a comment and I'll help you out!:dance:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi wonderful members/watchers/visitors!!!!!!!! I hope everyone is doing well =D. It's been a while since our last contest sooo its's time for a contest!!!!!


Theme: Use your imagination!!!



Now about the contest.

Below is a list of numbers to choose from. Each number contains a word. If you decide to sign-up (which I hope you do), just comment saying: "I am in!" and pick a number. You should have back-up numbers just in cause the number you want is taken.

Your comment should look something like this: "I am in! 13".

Once your word is revealed use your imagination to create what you want.

Ex. Say your word is arrow, you can make a drawing of an arrow, take a picture of it, draw a cupid with an arrow, anything!!! Just create anything that relates to the word.

The sign-up procedures start today, February 22, 2013. It's a "first come, first served" basis, and that means, that the first that gets a number, keeps the number. The numbers-word combination will be announced on February 25, 2013 in a updated journal. The unrequested numbers will remain encrypted until somebody claims them.

Lost in Another World (RESULTS)

Mon Mar 11, 2013, 10:06 AM



:iconmh1plz::iconmh2plz::iconmh3plz::iconmh4plz::iconmh5plz:

First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen ;). I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest ;).


:iconmh1plz::iconmh2plz::iconmh3plz::iconmh4plz::iconmh5plz:



1st :iconcarolinsajur:

:iconkawaiistarloveplz: Starlight :iconkawaiistarloveplz:

Certainly the most creative work I've seen for this contest. Two "humanized" stars discovering a luminous town in the night. Excellent idea of contrast, really ! Congratulations for winning the first place Carolin :clap:





2nd :iconannewipf:

:iconkawaiistarloveplz: The Cage :iconkawaiistarloveplz:

I fell in love with this creation ! The idea to put a mermaid in a cage is really excellent, and the atmosphere we can feel is just so refreshing. Thank you so much Anne for this photomanipulation, and congratulations for the second place :clap:





3rd :icon00maria00:

:iconkawaiistarloveplz: Lost in Another World :iconkawaiistarloveplz:

I just adore the GREAT contrast here, between the warm colors of an enchanting forest with beautiful butterflies, and the dark and red demone crying in the middle of this little paradise. Congratulations for the third place dear Maria ! :clap:





* If you want offer llamas, :points:, features, or something else, thank you to tell me ! :) *


~ :frail: ~

Hi there :wave:,

That  was a long time I didn't start a contest … So here is a new one, I hope you'll appreciate the theme ! :dance:

You can see the results for my last contest here: Bloody Melancholy Contest (CLOSED):iconmh1plz::iconmh2plz::iconmh3plz::iconmh4plz::iconmh5plz:
First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of the melancholy side, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen ;).
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest ;).

:iconmh1plz::iconmh2plz::iconmh3plz::iconmh4plz::iconmh5plz:
1st :iconKatherine-Black:
:iconkawaiistarloveplz: Poor Snow White...! :iconkawaiistarloveplz:

This work is just so incredible ... The first time I've seen it, I could easily feel as if I was in this scene, with Snow White. I was speechless, and really impressed that this work could be such expressive by a minimal way of colorization (

:star: THE RULES :star:


~ Deadline: April 11th, 2013 ~

:pointr: Countdown  




:bulletpurple: You must use a stock of me or Laetitia (at least one), the one you want in our gallery eledhwen-stock.deviantart.com/… ... And then, change us into a creature of your choice (fairy, elf, angel, demon, ... All what you want !) represented in a world which is not his own. (for example : an angel in Hell, an elf in a human city, a mermaid on Earth, ... Well, these are simple examples, I hope you'll work more on your creativity on this idea !! :) As always, I want to see original works ;)). You're not obliged to write a little story explaining the scene, but if yes, it will be really appreciated.

Remember: we must absolutly see a CONTRAST between the character and his environment.

:bulletgreen: We must recognize our faces (a minimum at least).

:bulletgreen: You can create a traditional drawing, a digital one, or a photomanipulation.

:bulletgreen: 1 entry per member.

:bulletgreen: NO dA watermark ... This really spoils the pleasure to see the artwork. If you want sign your art, no problem, but something as discrete as possible, not in the middle of the image ... :) (and if you REALLY want to put a dA watermark, I'll ask you to send me the version without it by mail).

:bulletgreen: Copy/Past this in the description of your entry (without the 8 *):

This is my entry for the <*b>Lost in Another World Contest<*/b> h*ttp://eledhwen-stock.deviantart.com/art/Lost-in-Another-World-Contest-358929196 (or remplace the link by this thumb is you have a premium membership: :*thumb358929196: ).

:bulletgreen: Read carefully my stock rules before starting your work: eledhwen-stock.deviantart.com/…

:bulletgreen: Don't forget to give proper credit to my stock but also to stock from other members if you use some of them too.

:bulletgreen: Put this journal entry in your :+fav: to I know how many people intend to participate (even if you don't know if you'll have the time).

:bulletgreen: When you have finished your artwork, please give a link to it in this journal that I can feature it in "Entries" ;).

:bulletgreen: I'll put back the deadline if there are less than 10 entries, so talk about this to your friends ;).

:bulletgreen: I'll personally choose the 3 winners.

WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 20, 2013, 12:59 AM


AND THE WINNERS ARE!

Third Place;

Freikorps by CapturedJoe by :iconcapturedjoe:
Quote: "You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain"
I liked this entry, as well as all of their entries for being based in history, this one in particular struck me 

Second Place;

How war starts? by 2-Fili by :icon2-fili:
Quote: "War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other"
This one was very simple in execution but hit the nail on the head

First Place;

Nightmare Fuel by forgottenpantaloons By :iconforgottenpantaloons:
Quote: "We stopped checking for monsters when we realized they were inside us"
this was probably the most used quote, and there were plenty of amazing entries for it, but this one was my absolute favorite


CONGRATULATIONS! I will make a Journal tomorrow featuring all entrants, as well as the honorable mentions!!

Winners, please get a hold of me so I can send you your prizes! :3

Well done everyone! Thanks for making this contest awesome ^_^





WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED THIS SUNDAY AND ALL PRIZES WILL (HOPEFULLY) BE DISTRIBUTED WITHIN A WEEK, pseudo-explanation here xite91.deviantart.com/journal/…


In case you haven't heard, due to an unfortunate mistake, I have to wait to get paid to hand out the prizes, which is about two weeks from now. Even though the contest is TECHNICALLY over, I don't feel it's fair to you guys that I get an extension to pay you, but you don't get an extension to do your entries, SO, until I announce the winners, you have the chance to finish your entries. I will not announce the winners till I can dish out prizes, and I will give you at least a day's notice before I announce the winners. Sorry for the inconvenience guys, thanks for all the help making this such a great contest! <3<3<3


A lot of people have asked for an extension, so here we are, you now have 2 more weeks to enter! Making the contest end on June 23, 2013!

Darn! we almost got that 100 favorites, but we have plenty of reasons to celebrate! For instance, we've hit 21 entries! So on to the 3rd tier of prizes!

So I have a question, are you guys all enjoying this contest as much as I am? because if you are and if you'd like, i can give an extension, just let me know if you want and for how long!

Now onto the good stuff!

As a prize winner, each of you have a choice between a 1 month premium membership, an equal number of points, or a character design digital painting from me (full body character, no background)

Once the winners are announced I will note you and you will have 1 week to claim your prize, if you do not by this time I will assume you are inactive and give the prize to someone else.



The idea is simple, i give you a list of quotes, you choose one that inspires you, and draw from that inspiration. 


~I've decided to add some prizes for GROUPS that feature my contest!~
Any group that creates a journal entry dedicated to my contest WITH A LINK (and, of course, notes me to let me know about it) will recieve 100 points, I've also added a random group premium membership prize for groups!

Deadline!
I want to give you guys a lot of time to make this a awesome as possible, so you'll have until June 23th to finish it

Rules;

I accidentally left out a few important rules, so i'll put them here;
 - NO TRACING other artworks, must be your original work
 - Bases CAN be used, but make sure the artist that created it knows and allows it (i will ask them) and make sure to credit them
 - Collab's are allowed, but make sure you know beforehand how you plan to split the prize
 - If it's visual artwork (non craft of course) i prefer it be "complete", as in full background and so on (color does not count as "complete" as i see complete black and white pieces all the time), but again, not a requirement, just a preference

 - Adhere to the rules of DA
 - It can be gory, graphic, all of that fun stuff, but remember to put a filter on it if it is!
 - Payment through paypal, if you don't have paypal we'll work something out (probably an equal amount of points)
 - I will not post where the quotes came from (i know some will be a bit obvious). I want you to use your imagination, please don't look it up, and try not to use where it came from if you can help it (i'm not so much looking for fanart)
 - Can be any medium of art, any at all! 
 - Contest open to DA members only, pretty much for my convenience... :D
 - I feel i'm giving plenty of quotes, so please don't take the liberty of using your own, if you'd like to use one not on the list, note me and if i think it should be added, i'll add it
 - The artist's comments for the deviation must have the quote used, as well as a link to this journal 
 - Watches and Favorites aren't ever required, but remember, this contest pays more with more entries, so getting it out there could mean you getting paid more
 - Anyone that creates a journal entry linking to this one will get 10 pts and a llama (if i haven't given you a llama already)
  - If you create a journal note me with a link to it
 - Note me with your contest entry, if you simply leave it here or on my wall i may miss it
 - Do NOT disrespect me or any entrants to this contest, anyone who insults another artist's work does not deserve to win the prize and will be disqualified (insulting and constructive criticism are two different things)
 - Anyone who does not adhere to the rules will be disqualified
 - HAVE FUN!

Prizes!!
 
Prizes will increase based on number of entries based on this chart (all prizes are in USD only)

Current Entries: 69 :iconwowplz: :iconwowplz: :iconwowplz: :iconwowplz:

50 - 75 entries

UPDATE/EDIT - A few people requested I extend the contest deadline, and due to a few extra things that came up last minute, I'll be extending the contest until Friday, May 10th 2013. Consequently, the livestream announcement of winners will be moved back until 6PM EST on Saturday, May 11th 2013. I will not extend it farther than this, as it wouldn't be fair to the people who have already entered. But if you're still on the fence about entering, now's a good chance to finalize some things and get it in ^_^

CONTEST ENTRIES: 28
GIVEAWAY ENTRIES: 2 (the odds are really good here, and some kickass prizes to boot!)

B) you are a DeviantART user
C) you are watching my gallery :D



.~* CONTEST - Your CHARACTER will qualify if... *~.
A) they are your own creation. This means fan characters from an established series are allowed. Adoptables that you have purchased from another person are NOT allowed, however. If you have questions on what constitutes "your own creation", feel free to ask!
B) there is at least one reference image of them.

and that's it! As long as you created them and I have a visual reference, you're golden!



.~* CONTEST - How to enter your CHARACTER *~.
Send me a note with the subject "Character contest" and the following information~

A) Fill out the objective stuff.
:bulletred: Name:
:bulletorange: Age:
:bulletyellow: Gender:
:bulletgreen: Species:
:bulletblue: Height/weight:
:bulletpurple: Hair/skin/eye color:
:bulletred: Scars/unusual features:
:bulletorange: Tattoos/piercings:
:bulletyellow: Fashion sense:
:bulletgreen: Jewelry:
:bulletblue: Makeup (if applicable):
:bulletpurple: Important equipment (max. 3 objects):

B) Tell me about their personality. (300 words maximum)

C) Tell me about their history. (500 words maximum)

D) Tell me about their relationships. (300 words maximum)

E) Show me a reference picture. (1-5 pictures maximum)



.~* CONTEST - What criteria will you be using to decide who wins? *~.
A character is made up of two parts - one part objective, and one part subjective. I'll be judging each character on both objective and subjective criteria.

OBJECTIVELY, I will be looking at surface characteristics.
A) How much thought it looks like you put into their appearance
B) How well their appearance matches up to their personality
C) How well coordinated their colors are
D) How their appearance fits in with the world they're a part of
E) The balancing act between "unique" and "uniform"
F) How their reference pictures match up to their written description

SUBJECTIVELY, I will be looking deeper into the character based on what you write about their personality, history, and relationships.
A) Can other people relate to your character?
B) Do they have clear motivations for the things they did in the past?
C) Do they have goals for the future?
D) Do they exhibit many Mary Sue characteristics? If so, does it seem like they are thought-out and established with clear intent?
E) Does their personality invite me to learn more about them?

Basically, the goal of this contest is to challenge you to think beyond just the surface of your character, to their deeper wants and needs, and compose a description for them that invites other people to want to learn more about them. It's as if somebody says they think your brain-child is interesting! It gives you a sense of pride that few mediums can recreate.

Alternately, I do feel the need to state up front that if you do not win, it is not an attack on you personally. It's barely been twelve hours and I've already gotten five entries! It's going to be difficult to choose three winners, but at the end of the day, you come out of this contest with a character that you've put probably hours, if not days or weeks of thought into - and nobody can take that away from you. Which really makes you a winner, no matter what. :)



.~* A NOTE ABOUT MARY SUE CHARACTERISTICS *~.
You would be hard pressed to find a character that does not have Mary Sue tendencies. Being ungodly beautiful, friendly to everyone, best friends/love interest to the main character in a series, noteworthy and unusual variations within their race... these are qualities that often make up main characters. If they weren't unusual or interesting, we would have no reason to pay attention to their story!

HOWEVER. The characters I choose as the winner will have balanced typical "Mary Sue" traits with other non-Sue things to achieve a well-rounded character. And remember, one person's Sue is another person's Average Joe. It's up to you to craft your character description in such a way that it highlights their positives and gives enough attention to their flaws.

.~* EXAMPLE CONTEST ENTRY *~.

:bulletred: Name: Charlotte Aranda
:bulletorange: Age: 20
:bulletyellow: Gender: Female
:bulletgreen: Species: Human (for all intents and purposes)
:bulletblue: Height/weight: 5' 7", 140lbs.
:bulletpurple: Hair/skin/eye color: Brown hair with highlights - tanned skin - hazelish green eyes
:bulletred: Scars/unusual features: None visible
:bulletorange: Tattoos/piercings: Ears pierced
:bulletyellow: Fashion sense: Trendy with a flair for the dramatic.
:bulletgreen: Jewelry: Yes, and lots of it. Prefers gold over silver.
:bulletblue: Makeup (if applicable): Yes - eyeliner and bright lipstick are a must.
:bulletpurple: Important equipment (max. 3 objects): Black Coach purse, white iPhone.

Personality - Highly fashionable, obsessed with high heels and handbags. Former prom queen, lead dancer in the show choir, social butterfly/party hopper and all that - she was the alpha female of her high school. Think Regina George from "Mean Girls". On the outside, she's a sweet, friendly person. On the inside, she's a selfish, manipulative hussy using her looks and sexuality to get the things she wants. Even deeper than that is an insecure little girl who understands the vastness of the world, and finds herself intimidated by everything outside of her self-absorbed bubble. And when she finds herself unwillingly interning with the most brilliant minds in the world, it takes all of her resolve to mature and flourish on a life path she knows it's her duty to fill. (130 words)

History - Charlotte grew up in an upper-middle class family in Wheaton, IL to parents who never really understood her affinity for broadway and musical theater. Assuming it was simply a phase, they continued to urge her to pursue a more "meaningful" degree. What they really meant is that they wanted to raise her to be the world-changer they knew she was destined to be - something they could never explain to a girl who refused her calling every time it came her way.

Charlotte never answered that call until it threw her into a laboratory hell-bent on murdering its test subjects; she barely clawed out with her life intact. Every day that goes by, she learns more about the circumstances surrounding her destiny to lead an organization of geniuses, just how deep her family are involved, and how reluctant everyone is to share this information with her and her companions, for fear of "altering the course of time".

She would later learn that phrase would mean exactly that - "Back To The Future" style, minus the DeLorean of course. (178 words)

Relationships - On the surface, Charlotte likes her friendships and relationships with a touch of drama - it keeps things interesting and the gossip delicious and fresh. You could say she never takes it too seriously, as she's aware nothing lasts forever, and it keeps her from being burned by unfortunate love affairs.

She maintains a tolerable relationship with her parents, because they provide a reliable financial crutch (as she would otherwise have zero dollars to her name). However, their uncaring attitude toward her hobbies has left a bad taste in her mouth. As a result, she gets along best with them when they're kept at a distance, where they don't scrutinize her every move, and she doesn't put up with their criticism over her life decisions.

There are very few people that manage to worm their way into her deepest core to see that insecure little girl intimidated by the big scary world. The most influential of which is Dr. Reynold Sinclair, the second-in-command of the organization of geniuses. Obligated by fate to oversee her development, he makes every effort to groom her into a public figure worthy of running that organization. As time goes on, it's becoming less of an obligation and he's taken more personal interest, even going so far as to say he cares about her as a confidant and a friend. In return, Charlotte sees Reynold as a very reliable mentor, and the only person to give her straight answers about the way things are progressing in the world/story, where she's expected to save the world and given no tools to do so by the powers-that-be.

ACG's TALES OF TIME CONTEST WINNERS
Congratulations!!

:trophy: 1st Place goes to :iconkanamm: with Valkyrie, well done Kanamm :trophy:
Valkyrie by Kanamm
"In Norse mythology, a valkyrie is a female figure who decides which soldiers die in battle and which live. Selecting among those who die in battle, the valkyries bring their chosen ones to the afterlife, Walhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. Valkyries also appear as lovers of heroes and other mortals, where they are sometimes described as the daughters of royalty, and sometimes connected to swans or horses."


:trophy: 2nd Place goes to :iconbushaqua: with Gaia, well done Bushaqua :trophy:
Tales of Time: Gaia by Bushaqua
"Gaia was the goddess or personification of Earth in ancient Greek religion, one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia was the great mother of all: the heavenly gods, the Titans and the Giants were born from her union with Uranus (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea). Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra."


:trophy: 3rd Place goes to :icon1kit1: with Red Riding Hood, well done 1Kit1 :trophy:
:bigthumb389341277:
"I was inspired by the story of Red Riding Hood. Red Riding hood has always been one of my favorite fairy tales, and I wondered what it would be like if it was more romantic... (I love wolves, so it made me sad when the wolf was killed. In this version, no wolves will be killed! :D)"


Congratulations to our 3 winners.  But as stated in the prize list below everyone who enters will get some prizes.  So here's everyone else :meow:
