Just like it sounds. Design your own mothbat!

I'm going to run this until I stop getting many entries, probably. Tentative deadline April 15th. If I get a substantial amount of entries I will increase the amount of prizes available!

First place prizes
:
-Keep your bat!
-Icon of your bat!
-1000 pts
-Either a large simple pixel or an icon of your choosing. See here.

Second place prizes (I will pick 2 "second place" prize winners! Possibly more, if I have a hard time choosing.):
-Keep your bat!
-Icon of your bat!

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

(Apologies for the general horrible quality of the references. I'm using a mouse. :C)

Mothbat guide:


Two kinds of bats: Standard and Fox type.


General bat info:
  • Body colors, markings are unlimited. Any color or color combo is fine.
  • Wings are covered in soft fine fur, and can be a variety of shapes. Feel free to play around with wing shape to make something unique.
  • Tassels (The long ribbon-like "secondary wings") can also vary in shape and length.
  • Wing markings are unlimited. Any color or shape marking is fine. Most bats commonly have a circular or oval spot somewhere on their wings, but this is not required.
  • Ear shape varies greatly. Can be just about anything.
  • Feet are clawed.
Universal rare traits: Antennae, clawed wings (I am allowing rare traits in this contest.)


Standard type:

Body shape reference HERE.
  • Tails can be a variety of shapes, but are always short.
  • Ears can be long or short.
  • Manes are not required, and can vary in fur length.
  • Plantigrade.
  • They can't walk. They hop instead!
  Rare traits: Small, folded-over ears and bob tails. (I am allowing rare traits in this contest.)


Fox type:

 photo MOTHBATfox1_zps6fea9530.png
Body shape reference HERE.
  • Tails can be either long or short.
  • Ears are always long.
  • Manes are required.
  • Digitigrade.
  Rare traits: "Sabertooth" fangs and multiple tails. (I am allowing rare traits in this contest.)

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

Please let me know if you have any questions! I will probably charge a small fee for contestants to keep their bats if the don't win, but I don't know how much yet. If I don't get many entries I will let everyone keep.

edit: ok so no more entered will be accepted at this time, if you posted a design and i asked you to change it you have 24 hours to get it up to passing terms with the rules before judging starts, good luck!!

EDIT: ok, so were don't to the last hour left to enter, I just wanna make it clear that entries must be submitted here, in comment for for the entry to be counted at all. if it is nt submitted here in comment form then there is no way for me to find or let you know that stuff on it needs to be changed. ALSO if you post your entry before midnight and i tell you that stuff needs to be changed, you can change and update your entry after midnight, this is totally fine and understandable, just don't wait like... several days to update it since I'm gonna start judging this weekend and be announcing winners soon after, please keep this in mind (lets say please make edits and submit updated entered within 24 hours from the time i ask for it to be changed, i thin that is reasonable)

EDIT NOV 7TH: please make sure to get your enteries in by tonight midnight southern CA time!! that is when entries close and judging starts!!

edit2: decided from the poll votes to extend the contest 1 week, making the new deadline november 7th at midnight.

edit: added a little fade examples guide for how finkx body fades work, with what is ok/not ok. Let me know if you still have any questions!! I am happy to answer them c:
--
I have decided to do a make your own finkx contest!!!

RULES

-you must draw and upload an image of your finkx entry to DA so I can add it to the contest folder
-Please follow the rules for the species (finkxes that don't follow the rules will not be counted in the contest and will not be allowed to be made official or to win)
-3 entries max, though only 1 of your finkx entries will be able to win.
-common, and uncommon traits are fair game, but finkxes can only have up to 2 rare traits and 1 mutation or super rare trait.
-Please no halloween themed finkxes, I already have a list of halloween finkxes I'm going to be making that have their own special stuff going on, having one that is fall theemed is ok though (or pretty much any other theme out there, finkxes can have any colors and theme so don't limit yourself to just fall because its october lol)
-Please post a link to your entry here on this journal so I can find it easily and don't miss it for the contest. I will ignore any links sent via note or other method.
-feel free to post questions here! especially so that if someone else has the same question they can see the answer in the comments (I'll feature comments with questions and their answers to make them easier to find)
-finkxes that are made official wether by winning or paying the fee at the end of the contest can only be traded or sold for the same amount that the fee to make then official was.
-Absolutely no tracing or copying of anyone else's art or characters, If i catch anyone copying stuff from others they will be blacklisted from the contest and possibly from further myo/custom/auction events if it is really bad.
-please follow my TOS

SOME FINKXES AND THIER LORE
(please no glitched contract finkxes for this contest)

MORE FINKXES FOR EXAMPLES

common, uncommon and rare trait sheet, also body types: (remember, traits can be mixed together!! you don't have to stick to just one traits appearance as long as it doesn't exceed the rare/mutation/super rare trait limit!)
+SPECIAL WING/EAR NOTE: the markings and colors of the inner wings and the inner ears pretty much always match, they also usually have the same edge type as the ears. I also wanted to make a quick note that inner ears usually have some sort of lacy or interesting design on the inside of them (see finkx examples for examples) and they don't have soft fades on the inside of their ears, but segmented gradients are fine.
Finkx Traits by Hauket Finkx Body Types by Hauket Finkx Fade Examples Dos And Donts by Hauket <<FADE EXAMPLES PLEASE LOOK
Super rare and mutation trait sheet:
 Finkx Super Rare Traits and Mutations by Hauket

MYO finkx contest ends OCTOBER 31st NOVEMBER 7th at midnight southern CA time! so please get your entries uploaded by then.

depending on how many enteries there are will depend on how many winners there will be, but probably around 1-3 winners per 10 entries~

WINNERS WILL GET THEIR FINKX OFFICIAL FOR FREE and also have the option of adding one more rare/super rare/mutation trait to their finkx! they can also have a little doodle headshot if they like of their new finkx (same style as this)

Any designs that don't win will be able to be made official for a fee, probably around 20$-30$ (will be solidified later) (the fee will only be accepted through PAYPAL)

ENTRIES

have fun and good luck!!

Hey, y'all! So, it's about time I host another contest. :) I've always had really nice outcomes, so I'm hoping I'll have just as good of a response. Well, I'll get to it.

Prompts (can be used in any media, taken in any interpretation):

:bulletgreen: 100 pounds of shredded paper* 
:bulletgreen: Weeds
:bulletgreen: we can only hurt ourselves
:bulletgreen: poetry is a dirty word 

PICK ONE. You are allowed to use more than one prompt if you wish, but you do not have to incorporate any more than just one. 

I have only 95 points, so this isn't exactly riddled with high prizes. ^^' Actually, if someone could direct me to a contest where I could gain some more points, that'd be awesome!

:bulletblue: First place: 50 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me, 2 well-thought-out comments

:bulletred: Second place: 30 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me, 1 well-thought-out comment

:bulletyellow: Third place: 20 points, 1 llama badge, 10 favs from me 

:bulletpurple: The amazing SilverInkblot has donated some of her beautiful bookmarks as prizes. :) (Smile) Check out her lovely bookmarks and art!

When you finish an entry, just comment on my profile or this journal that you did it. A link to the deviation would be nice, although it's not required. :) You can also note me if that's more comfortable for you.

Contest begins: 3/15/14
Contest ends: 4/15/14

Dirty WordDirty Word
24-03-14
Don't tell me you're a poet;
that you fill pages with lies and metaphors
jutting out from every-which angle.
I don't care for lies
no matter what wrapping they come in.
I don't care for sonnets declaring love;
love is a word heard often
and meaning little.
Don't give me copious words in rhyme
where three words, in plain, will do.
Don't tell me you're a poet;
that you twist emotions and thoughts
like a master spinner at a spindle.
I care not to be told what to feel.
No matter how close our feelings are
they will never match exactly.
I don't care for Haiku depicting nature
when nature can be self-experienced.
Your frothy depiction of snow
is of less importance than what I feel standing in it.
Your thoughts on Autumn worth less
than what it feels like to collapse
into a pile of orange, gold and red.
Don't tell me you're a poet.
I care only for my own experience.


Logically DirtyA carpet
Is not dirty,
Not until mud
Is tracked
Onto the carpet:
Now the dirt of the mud
Has been transferred to the carpet -
By this logic,
A poem can be made dirty
By a single word placed within;
A stretch of
Pavement is clean,
But if a single slab
Is dirtied, then the
Whole of the pavement
has been dirtied -
Just like the pavement,
A single poem can turn
Poetry to a dirt-ridden state;
The meaning of various words,
Are dirty -
This in turn has made the
Words... dirty -
An abstract string of logic
Can form a single point:
Poetry is a dirty word.


i can only hurt myselfbecause it is me who reads
too much into your gestures
and words; it is a lie
when they say that a heart
can be taken or stolen
or held by a lover
my heart only sits quiet
in my chest and thumps
uneasily,
waiting not for you
to come claim it
but for me
to look down at scared
fingers and feel
inadequate, ashamed
uncertain
of things i know are true
and i hate that
you have the power
to make me hurt myself
when i already do such a good
job on my own


Paper Cage of Fear100 pounds of shredded paper
And I was their maker
100 days gone by
Every one was a lie
100 dreams torn
All I can do is mourn
As each page was torn apart
The cage fell from my heart
All that was left of me
From that time, all I can see
Is 100 pounds of shredded paper
And I alone am their maker
Each word inked upon the page
Strengthened a bar on the cage
Each paper added the weight
That sealed shut my fate
I didn't realise what I had done
Until it seemed too late
I could barely see the sun
In this place filled with hate
You came to me with the brightest light
And taught me just how to fight
I could shred all this fear
With your helping hand near
Now I look all around me
And everywhere I see
Is 100 pounds of shredded paper
And I was their maker
But now I can finally be
Just what I wanted, free


<da:thumb id="441349562"/>

Weed KingWalking through the gray and silver garden
With cold trees rising above each cloud
And the uncountable little blades of grass
Or the occasional flower, striking and loud
But for every petal of hope, eternal and strong
There is an invader borne of the same shade
Borne of the same mask, wrought of greed
Sitting on a throne of death with bloodsoaked blade
O parasite king
O lord of the garden gray
O weed almighty
Why so many must you slay?
Walking through the gray and silver garden
With cold trees, withered and gone
And the uncountable little graves
Or the occasional flower, never to see dawn
But for every petal of hope, however small
There is a cell holding a dangling rope
Borne of a different mask, wrought of courage
Sitting on a stone floor with dull blade of hope
O hero king
O lord of the rebels we
O hope almighty
Why are we not yet free?
Walking through the gray and silver garden
With cold trees, afraid for false joy
And the uncountable betrayed
Or the occasional flower they could not


Sting.I tried to pull
the weeds from my heart
today, but the thistles only
cut my hands; I lost myself
in the sting.  Perhaps to bleed
is all we can hope for;
perhaps we may only hurt
ourselves.
