Five days left until the end of the January ‘Chinese Zodiac: Rat’ Lineart Contest. Remember to send your entry as a note to the club. Entries Thus Far and Details Below!


We are still accepting donations to the contest prize pool. Remember, all donors get a special recognition in an upcoming dA journal, and all donors of 50 points or more will receive a 3-thumbnail art feature right smack dab on the front page of this club!

The :iconcolor-me-club: Presents:

---==:star: THE JANUARY LINEART CONTEST :star: ==---

According to a recent poll the color-me-club members seem to be quite interested in hosting a month around the Chinese zodiac: year of the rat..

So have at it, folks! But to make this really interesting, let's throw a prize into the mix, too!


:bulletyellow:1200 points for first place by the color-me-club (see donation poll on CMC-Donations's user page to contribute)
:bulletyellow: 800 dA Points for second place
:bulletyellow: 400 dA Points for third place


Submit your finished lines to your dA gallery, then send a note to the color-me-club.

Entitle the note "January Contest Entry."  Inside of the note, include a [link] to your lineart.  That's it.  That's all you need to do to submit your entry to the lineart contest.


A few.

By contributing your lineart to this contest, you automatically agree to the rules listed herein, and give permission to the color-me-club to showcase your artwork in the color-me-club journal.

Only one entry per deviant.

Entries must be dated no earlier than January 1st, 2019.

Entries should be received by February 1st.  While we still accept entries through voting, you understand that late entries will be uploaded when the club is updated, and the artist will lose potential votes with a late entry.

The lineart must be your own.  Ripped or "sampled" lineart will be disqualified.  This includes tracing.  This does not include "referenced" images, you may use any image for reference.  As long as you don't trace an existing image directly, you're free to use any image for reference to help you create your work.

The lineart must be free. We do not accept images that require money or points to download the high resolution file.

Winners of previous contests ARE allowed to participate.  There are no restraints for how often members can contribute.  The game here isn't about winning.  It's about creating.

You do not have to be a color-me-club member to participate.  This is open to the whole dA community!

Lastly, have only one artist submit the image.  Collaborative efforts are encouraged.  However, ensure the other collaborator knows the image will be submitted to the contest, and determine who will be representing the image.

Best of luck, everybody!
