Hey everyone!

Before you go...

"What the... what happened to the previous journal layout?!?"

...let me explain myself x) I will use this kind of journal layout in several colours for anything that is related to my contest about Couples & Duos.

"What Contest?!?

Just relax! It's a contest I posted a couple of days ago. More info can be found through this link. It will explain you the rules & guidelines, show you what it is all about, tell you who the judges are and -most importantly- what kind of prizes you can win! :eager:

Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find the contest rules?
I've added links to the contest and its rules everywhere in this journal. Be sure to check them out!


Where can I find the contest entries?
You can find them by clicking on one of the links right after the FAQ. ;)


I want to make a contest entry with a duo, but they'll be surrounded by other people/elements. Does this qualify?
Sure does! As long as the entry is focussed on a duo, you can add as many elements as you want.


Are collaborations allowed too?
Since I can't split several of the prize donations, I'm afraid I have to say it won't qualify!


Are you going to join too?
Yes. And I'm going to let myself win the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places! :XD:


Can I donate something and still participate?
Of course you can! And if you would like to donate a prize, feel free to note me about it. :heart:


Is literature / photomanips / fan art / fractals / etcetera allowed too?
Any type of media is allowed as long as you stick to the rules.


Will the entries be judged both on originality and skill?
They sure will. I think the most important thing is that A.) everything was done by the rules, and B.) You really took the time to work on your idea and entry. That's all that matters.


If I draw one of your interests (Supernatural, Final Fantasy, Ewan McGregor) do I get extra bonus points?
As much as I love to see entries which really show my interests (and I've seen plenty of them!) I'm looking at the overall image and judge them on originality. Mostly


Oh no! I don't think I can make it on time. Hey... could you extend the deadline just for a bit?
I'm afraid I can't do that because it won't be fair to those who worked really hard to finish something in time! But I have been thinking about it though...

yay! another oppertunity to get another of my lotr fanart series finally drawn :D

Hopefully my idea won't be seen as more than two 'things' and be disqualified... ah well, will be good to draw something over the summer, and will give me something to do while I'm away in croatia, whatever the outcome of the contest :XD:

Ouups, the poem entitled " Unmatched Duo :Art and Artist " lOl , hehe, wish me a good luck :D
dr7key's avatar
I submitted a poem entitled which I really love very much. The important for me is to have created and felt my work. Guys, I love the way you support each other to continue the way to creativity. I'm not pessimistic if I tell you that sometimes I felt very bad about myself when only 2 or 3 people take some time to see and value my Artworks. Even though, I never stopped, but I took break to re-arrange my thoughts to come back with a high spirit.
I promise all of you of a very Original Poem next time when I'll see the first deviation submitted as a Contest Entry.

Every Deviant Has Devious thoughts... The more Original your work is the more Devious you get ... Let's shine and feel the deviousness.

Hi figured I have to ask this question okay I wanted to do a collage pic with seven (ideally if I get time) different pics (same couple) and while I'd have to draw six of them one is already done and up and hence not done specically for the contest but I wanted to know if that one could be allowed into the collage seeing I'd still be making most of the pics just for this (I was also gonna ask whether one of the pics could have other characters aka the children of said characters but I figure that would be a no but I figured since I was asking a question I'd ask anyway) If this is a stupid question I apologize and in advance thanks for humoring me I just didn't want to do a lot of work and then find out the pic wouldn't be eligible ^_^ thanks
