UPDATE TWO: I have stuff going on this weekend and wont have time to judge so I'm extending it by juuuust a couple days ; w ; I think that's better than leaving it silently closed for those few days. New deadline is September 23rd 2018 at 11:59PM CST! The winners will be announced on Monday, Tuesday at the latest.
UPDATED: Slight increase in the points prizes thanks to LauraPentella! Thanks a ton!
It's been a little more than four years since my last contest, and I wanna do another one! So who are y'all drawing this time, should you decide to enter...?
...My OC, Tessa She's a contract killer who spared a target's life in exchange for immortality, and the folks who hired her to kill said target were not too happy about it... A couple decades after the incident, she's the best assassin money can buy in a shady city that hasn't seen daylight in years, living with her own personal medbot named Val who just barely escaped the scrapyard after his whole line was replaced by some newer models. He's not built for combat and boy he doesn't like being part of it either, but on occasion he gets dragged along either by guilt or a fear of something happening to his partner. But hey, we're not here to talk about Val, we're here to talk about Tessa and a contest based around drawing her Also, you can see more of her in her tag on my tumblr art blog, if you need to!
Anyone of any skill level can enter! I don't care if you've been drawing for one month or ten years, as long as you put effort into your submission it's good enough for me
Despite the title saying "draw", I'll accept many art mediums! Digital art, traditional art, modeling, crafts, literature... if you have a medium you'd like to enter but you're unsure about, feel free to ask~ c:
All art styles welcomed! Realistic, cartoony, anime, chibi, I'm not picky.
Unlimited submissions! You can submit as many times as you want, but remember: Quality over Quantity. Only submit multiple pieces if you're confident in their quality. You're better off with one or two submissions you worked really hard on and thought about than ten random sketches that took you like ten minutes each, y'know?
PLEASE POST YOUR SUBMISSIONS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!! The mentions system doesn't always work, so if you don't post it there I might not see it. Also, please submit it to deviantART and not sta.sh if you can. It makes judging easier
You can enter if you don't have a deviantART! HOWEVER, you wont get any of the deviantart prizes (llamas and points). Just art, if you win. Please send your submissions to me on tumblr (cozylittleartblog) or twitter (MizGalaxxi) instead.
While I don't have any strict or direct guidelines, I would like to see some action and personality. She's snarky, she's aggressive, she's a chaotic-neutral so play around n have fun with it. A drawing with some flaws but lots of personality and story could win over something that's very well-done but otherwise bland and emotionless.
NO MAJOR NSFW THEMES! She's an assassin, your submission might contain blood, fighting, violence, the usual stuff you'd expect in her line of work. That's fine. Folks shouldn't have their organs strewn about the place though, and please no sexual themes at all.
A few people have asked about submitting animal interpretations of her, and while I've allowed those few people to do so if they'd like I'm going to ask that any future submissions are human. Didn't think so many people would ask so soon and I still definitely want to see her actual design, so unless you're among the few that have been granted permission otherwise: Your submission has to be of her actual design, and not a derivative.
If you're curious about something I haven't mentioned feel free to ask, better safe than sorry~ c:
And now the fun part, what are the prizes? Well all participants will receive a llama badge (either from this account, or a side account if i've already given you one from here), and there's three big prizes which are listed below:
A transparent cell OR soft (your choice) shaded full body illustration of a character of your choice by me! ($40 ~ $45 Value)
Three months worth of feature in my donation pool
...and as many llama badges I can possibly give you between all of my side accounts! xD
A transparent cell OR soft (your choice) shaded waist-up illustration of a character of your choice by me! ($20 ~ $25 Value)
One months worth of feature in my donation pool
A flat-color bust of a character of your choice with a simple background by me! ($12 value)
A weeks worth of feature in my donation pool
The art prizes are the main prizes, and your request must fall within my usual commission guidelines. If I get enough submissions, there might be some small "honorable mentions" type prizes as well. Once again a big thanks to LauraPentella for contributing an additional 90 points that I've distributed in the prize pool
Like I've said at a few different points through this journal, feel free to ask questions if you have any. Aside from that, the deadline is SEPTEMBER
21ST 23rd 2018 at 11:59PM CST. The deadline may be extended depending on circumstance, but don't count on it. (Edit, it totally was, busy weekend xD) Can't wait to see what y'all come up with~ Also, linking this journal in your own journal or a status post is very much appreciated!! <3 Link me to your journal/status post and I'll check out your gallery, maybe leave some comments and fave some stuff.
