This contest is literally paid for by our wonderful members here that made it all possible for us to even HAVE a little bit of extra :points: to do this! Seriously. These guys are awesome.
:iconimaginekami::iconcrimson-nemesis: :iconr-legend: :iconesaarts:

Thank you to all of these guys for their donations!


Alright guys, as I said before, when we'd hit 200k pageviews we'd do a small Hobbyist-only contest with a base reward of 400 :points:. ONLY HOBBYISTS MAY ENTER! Students and professionals are barred from entering this contest. We'll try to get to you guys, but we're gonna help some of you in other ways beyond mere :points:, yeah? And I am trying to help you. So...

Let's see some stuff, yeah?

~Rules~
:bulletblack: Only hobbyist artists may enter

:bulletblack: There may only be one entry per competitor

:bulletblack: It must be fanart of a game

:bulletblack: OCs are barred (this is simply to keep things simple)



:bulletblack: The winnings will go to the 1st place winner; all 400 :points:

:bulletblack: The entry must conform to the group rules

:bulletblack: Submit via link in the comment and a favorite to the journal

:bulletblack: This isn't a rule, but I'd like to ask that it stay to a mainstream/known game simply because... I will have to research every single obscure game. Save this poor shoddy mess from hours of extra work of going through tons of game descriptions.

Anyhow. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the contest! I will end it on the fifteenth of May. I hope to see all of you in here! (If anyone would like to offer a little prize or two for lesser winners, like maybe a free request or something, feel free to comment and I'll add that into the contest. Cheers!~)

:star: Prizes! :star:

:bulletyellow: First Place: 400 :points:

Ohh, I'm terribly sorry that I wasn't too mindful of the deadline then. Is there a newer contest within the horizon, then by all means let this piece enter that one instead.

Again, thank you for your reply and possible contest suggestion.

Students can't enter? I've... had art classes before, does this disqualify me? I'm not currently taking any class pertaining to digital art, which is my medium of choice for drawing. So any digital art I make right now is in my free time for fun, aka, a hobby. If the issue is being more "educated" than others, believe me, I've taught myself far more than any class has.

XeruFury Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Um... hm. Well. I suppose the qualifier for being a student is that you are learning from another how to become a professional artist. Transition stage and whatnot. So... is that you? If so, then yes, it would bar you. If not, then feel free to join.

:iconnotanamewaster:
NotaNameWaster Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2016
Well, my intended degree pertains to graphic arts, but the art classes I've had so far are all base level stuff that many people with non-art majors take as electives. I haven't taken any advanced classes in any kind of art yet, so I don't think I've really begun a transition to pro levels.
If you think I'm already in that stage though, I guess I'll wait for the student/pro contest later ^^'

:iconxerufury:
XeruFury Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
We might not be having a pro contest simply because we can't afford that kind of prize money nor can we expect to reward correctly; students might get something if I can really gather up some money.

Hmm. Alright, I'm going to let it fly but... cutting it close, yeah?

I am part-hobbyist I suppose, considering I do want to base my career in digital art eventually (Guessing that makes me a student?). So I'll stay clear of this contest. :)
Good luck to everyone! ^-^
