How Judging Is Going Down

Seiorai, stuck-in-suburbia, Synfull, and Phlum and I are judging each round separately.

Each round and its winners will be judged based on 3 components:
:bulletblue: Quality of the Emote
:bulletblue: Relation to the Topic
:bulletblue: Creativity

Animation is allowed, but is not required. If it looks better as a static, we'll judge it better as a static; if it looks better animated, we'll judge it better as an animation. The choice is yours in how you present it to us. This all goes toward the quality of the emote. You won't necessarily be judged better with animation unless it makes the emote look better. If you half-ass an animation, it'd be judged worse for it.
Any questions on judging or the contest in general can be left on this journal. c:

You entry must be 100% made by you, start to finish. If it isn't, you will be disqualified unless you get permission from the emoticonist first and show it to me.
You can use tutorials, but do not use sprites, bases, and other people's emotes without specific permission from the artist first. Thanks. <3

Round 1 Theme

The theme of this round is: Monster(s).
Your entry must include a minimum of 1 emote and must be related somehow to the theme. (Your emote can be a monster or be chased by a monster or loves monsters, whatever you can think of, so long as it's related to the topic. Any sort of monster works--mummies, zombies, godzilla, original monsters. Doesn't matter.) It may include anything else you'd like. Be creative!

Remember, the deadline for this contest is Wednesday, July 6 at 11:59:59PM GMT+1
Extensions will not be given, as the judging has to be done within two days of receiving the entries and I don't want to push other deadlines back unless absolutely necessary. :nod:

There are 27 of you; 10 will make it to the second round. Each of the 10 making it to the second round will at least get 135 points.

Note me or comment on my page/journal with your entries once you're finished with them.
Love you all! Good luck. (:

Part 2 Start

Hey y'all! <3
Sorry I'm a bit late in starting the second part of the contest, but I gave an extension for the third round of the first part, so it took a bit longer to get the results in.

For part 2 of this contest, you guys needs to any emote from the contest. (You can find them here, here, and here.)

The rules are simple:
:bulletred: You need to write a critique, either using the critique widget from dA or by commenting on the emote.
:bulletorange: Write a well-thought out critique. Give constructive criticism.
:bulletred: Send the link to the critique to me via note or comment, I don't care so long as you send it to me. If you don't send it to me, it will not be judged.
:bulletorange: Critique must be written between the dates of July 25 (yesterday, because I was late announcing this) and August 10 (I gave a slight extension because I was late :paranoid:).
:bulletred: You may enter up to ten times (though try to send them to me all at once, if at all possible), but you may only win once.

The writers of the top 5 critiques will each receive: 300 points from me
25 Points donated from stuck-in-suburbia
25 Points donated from Seiorai
20 Points donated from SanguineEpitaph
Journal feature from: me, Mirz123, Banjelerp, Indae, Krissi001, PatrickRuegheimer, Seiorai, Katuend, SanguineEpitaph, SparklyDest

Get to critiquin'! <3
I'll update this journal with winners after this contest closes.
