Now, it's the fifteenth and I'll be accepting entries until noon tomorrow - thent he fifteenth should be over everywhere int he world.

Such a MASS of entries has come in over the last few days; please, please forgive me that I haven't commented on the last bunch! Especially since there were so many spectacular entries there.

As soon as the entries are complete, I'll get to the judging, and when I post the results, I'll give a detailed comment on the piece and how well it did in the judging categories. (These include use of medium, anatomy, originality, character portrayal, background/setting, and composition). So it will probably take me at lleast a week or two until the results come up.


The Contest Rules

The Topic:
The Rhyddion Chronicles gold-seven.deviantart.com/gall…
Draw a picture of any character(s) of my Rhyddion story. Descriptions of all of them can be found here: gold-seven.deviantart.com/art/… , and other pictures of them, as well as story excerpts can be found in the top link.
Actual scenes are preferred, but you can do just character pinups as well. Feel free to change costumes, as soon as you keep it mostly medieval (not Renaissance, please ;)) If you have any further questions on the characters or scenes you want to do, feel free to ask!


Prizes:
1st prize: A full colour picture of a character of your choice, original lineart and signed print of the coloured version shipped to you, plus a signed A4-sized print of your choice (of any of my pictures).
2nd prize: A lineart picture of a character of your choice, original shipped to you, plus a signed A4-sized print of your choice (of any of my pictures).
3rd prize: A sketch of a character of your choice, plus a postcard-sized print of any of my pictures, both shipped to you.
(No photo portraits please - just noticed again that I'm really no great shakes at those)



The Rules:
Maximum of two entries per person. All entries will be featured in my journal, of course. Collaborations are fine, but if you choose to do a collab with someone, make sure you agree on a common character I can draw for you if you win. In case a collab wins, both winners will get a print of the finished picture, and you’ll have to work out who gets the lineart.
Romance pics and even nudity (with the appropriate warnings) are fine, as long as they're canon. More generic scenes are also fine if they generally fit in with the characters. If you plan to do something in that direction and feel unsure, drop me a note or ask a question in here. :)


Styles and Techniques:
Everything you like. Digital, copics or pencil, manga, US comic style or cubism - do whatever goes best for you.
(Maybe not the cubism.) :D


Deadline:
Extended!!
March 15.
Finished entries can be sent via note. I'm sure you'll understand that I can't say that much about them yet while the contest is running!


So, I hope you’ll join! You’d make me a very happy bunny. :community:

I'm trying to get one done, but the background is proving difficult! :( What is the latest time you'll accept an entry from the US? I'm not ususally able to get to the internet until later at night around 9-10 Eastern time (I have no idea if that's what the time zone is known as everywhere ^^;) I'm not sure I'll make the deadline (I'm painfully slow) but I'll send you link to the finished product either way! :D

I said that I was going to wait until Saturday was over everywhere in the world, which probably makes it early Sunday morning. If you submit it Sunday at 10 am, I won't turn you down either. ;)

Well, I'm working on my entry! I've got the pencil part scanned and on the computer, and I'm just working on spicing it up. Not quite sure how it'll go, but the rules do say you're allowed two entries, so maybe I'll just enter both versions...?
Ah, decisions decisions!

Btw.: Do you write your story directly in English or first in German and translate it later?
Reply
:icongold-seven:

I write it in English form the start - I don't like writing in German for some reason; I much prefer my English writing.

:iconpretty-angel:
Pretty-Angel Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Fair enough - since you're an English teacher (If I'm not mistaken) writing in English shouldn't be a problem for you anyway. :aww:

(I just asked in case the story was available somewhere in German, too. English still slows my reading rate down. *sigh*)

Tut mir Leid - gibt's leider nur auf Englisch :)

Wenn es irgendwann veröffentlicht würde, dann würde ich es übrigens auch niemals übersetzen. Es würde sich für mich blöd anhören. Vielleicht sogar blöder, als wenn das jemand vom Fach macht.

Pretty-Angel Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Hehe - keine Problem. ^^
Stehst du einfach nur mit der deutschen Sprache auf Kriegsfuß oder ist es wegen dem walisischen Story-Hintergrund?
(Sorry, ich bin neugierig...*schäm*)
Reply
:icongold-seven:
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Es ist für mich wohl die Tatsache, dass die englische Sprache mit Fantasy untrennbar verbunden ist. Ich habe mit 18 angefangen, Englisch zu lesen (Tolkien), und seither habe ich fast kein deutsches Buch mehr gelesen, und das erste gute Fantasy-Buch, das ich auf Deutsch gelesen habe, war Tintenherz vor 3 Jahren - bis dahin hatte ich gedacht, Deutsch und gute Fantasy schließen sich aus.

Das erste, was ich je geschrieben habe, war eine sehr lange Star Wars-Fanfiction (Roman-Dimensionen), und da ich grade die SW-Bücher auf Englisch las, war auch da Englisch die logische Variante.

Der walisische Hintergrund ist natürlich auch ein Punkt. ;)

OH EM GEE...

High quality stuff your "fans" are sending in. That's better than just putting one's own face in one of your drawings. :doh:

Don't think I really got a chance, given all these incredibly well done drawings. And, ah, the time... still, I know a girl who'd DIE to have a picture of yours at her wall. Maybe that contest could be made an annual tradition?

You've got a very cool style, I'd love to see what you'd do!

I'm not sure about the annual tradition - we'll see how it works out. In addition, by this time next year, I'll be teaching again. (But then, by this time next year, my baby will HOPEFULLY sleep through the night. Or at least most of it. *yawn* :D)
