HOW TO ENTER

Everyone can enter! There will be five winners, who will each receive TWO prizes. Therefore, your chances are of winning are better in this contest than in others that only have one winner. This contest is also specially designed so that beginners have a good chance of winning. Here are the specifics: 

THE RULES

Post a drawing on my Facebook Fan Page:www.facebook.com/LEARN.TO.DRAW…

Your drawing will be of an original character that you design. It can be in a manga style, a cartoons style, fantasy, animal, or whatever suits you. Now, draw the expression and the body language so that we – as the viewers – can tell what the character is thinking or feeling! Try to be as specific as possible. You can use props and settings, but it's not necessary. Here are a few examples:

-I'm so jealous
-That looks delicious
-I'll protect you!
-Would I lie to you? 
-That's the saddest thing I've ever seen…!
-I think I'm in love! 
-Etc.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

-Yes, it can be in black and white
-Yes, it can be in color
-Yes, it can be a sketch
-No, you cannot enter more than once
-No, I do not take bribes (unless it's for a lot of money)

DEADLINE

The last day to enter and post your stuff is Sunday, August 18th. I'll announce the winners one week later, on Sunday, August 25th. 

HOW WILL IT BE JUDGED?

You don't have to be the best artist in the world in order to win. Even a beginner can win, if they have enough imagination. 

-WINNER: Best Expression 
-WINNER: Best Body Language 
-WINNER: Best Character Design 
-WINNER: Best Overall Concept
-WINNER: Best Style

Plus, there will be three Honorable Mentions.

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES? (TELL ME, TELL ME…!!)

Each winner gets TWO prizes: A signed copy of one of my How-To-Draw books, inscribed to you as a winner in the contest & an original piece of signed art, which was published in one of my books (if the published art is not currently available, I'll create original, signed sketches instead).

HOW WILL I GET MY PRIZES? (ME WANT PRIZES…!!)

The winners will contact me through my website at:www.chrishartbooks.com and tell me where they want me to send the prizes.

Good luck, all you cartooning and manga maniacs! I know you'll do great, and have fun doing it. 

Your Cartooning Sherpa,
Chris Hart

Hey Chris, what you should of done is let people submit their entry on this site in a note then you can favorite the entry and place it inside a folder you create called Drawing contest 2013. This will greatly help when it comes time to judge as you wont have to dig through all the entries on facebook! On top of that other artist are more likely to bump into each other when they see the contest folder

Out of curiosity, is there a ceiling on the rating of the content allowed? I was thinking about adding some blood to my entry (no gore or anything; just blood), and I'm wondering whether it should be kept to the absolute minimum, or if I can be a little liberal with it. I don't think the picture will be quite complete without at least some.

Lol, I hate giving that much away about my entry before it's finished. But it must be done, in case you want everything to be PG since you have younger fans.

Does it have to be a brand new OC, or can we use an existing OC we already have?

Entering from outer space; Decending at a break-neck pace.
The silent horror nobody knows; His thought is great, his talent shows
All opponents he will scend; And never rest until the end.
On the battlefield with right cause; He fights with teeth and tongue and claws.
The earth will shake and sky scorch when: Yuushuu enters once again!

...

But I have no Facebook!
