Thedastober Challenge and Raffle

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 30, 2016, 11:23 PM
Good day, fellow Thedosians! =D

As many of you may know, there is an informal, annual challenge in the art community around this time of the year called “Inktober.” The goal of this challenge is draw a fully-inked picture every day of October.

After some discussion, the admin have decided to put our own take on this challenge, which we are calling Thedastober. For each day in the month of October, we have provided a prompt to guide your work. However, we don’t want to exclude any medium, so we will be accepting artwork and literature alike.

In addition, we are going to add a little extra incentive to participate by creating a small raffle out of this challenge! For every prompt that you participate in, your name will be added to a pool of names. Therefore, your name could be entered anywhere from 1 to 31 times into the raffle. At the end of the month, we will randomly select three winners, with each winner being assigned to each of the admin for a prize.

*** Note: Be sure to mark your deviations clearly to let us know they're for Thedastober and/or provide a link below. :)

***Reminder: We are accepting literature-based entries for our Thedastober event, as well! We don't want any of our fanfiction writers to feel left out!

:new:For anyone that will need extra time to get their entries in, we will be waiting until November 8 to announce our raffle winners. Good luck to all in this final stretch!

For #25, could I have an example. I'm having some difficulty figuring out that one xD

A crossover is typically any instance of two fandoms colliding, so to speak.

In regards to our challenge, it could mean exploring how the DA characters would react to existing in the Harry Potter universe, being Pokemon trainers, having Thedas be one of the Kingdom Hearts worlds, etc. The opposite could also be true, where you bring characters from another fandom into the DA world.

This looks awesome to do. I was doing three other challenges for the month but I dropped them quite a while back. Hopefully, this can get my art going again AND I get to draw Dragon Age fanart!

But I'll have to see. Classes are eating up my time so I'll probably work on the ones on the weekend.

So doing this. Might be some days I'll be too busy, but I'm so trying this. I was planning on doing inktober anyway, so prompts are always good. Cheers!

Sounds fun, but there's no chance in hell I'll have 48 hours a day.

This sounds fun! :D Just so I am clear, do we need to do each prompt on its given day? I know that would be the ideal goal, but if life gets in the way and something takes an extra day to finish, can it not be entered (as in, no more Warden entries will be accepted after today)? Thank you! :)

It is the ideal goal, but we'll be accepting entries for each prompt throughout the month. :)

oooooh I really want to do this! I have so much already to do this month but it sounds like such fun.

Will any art (i.e. sketches) be accepted or only fully inked pieces? :)

All mediums are accepted; sketches will be accepted if they're clean/neat/no smudges, etc.
