Here's the Deal!

:iconhulaplz:THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. I will no longer be accepting any entries!:iconhulaplz:
Results will be announced tomorrow C:

An official TAG-Manga contest!
Enter for your chance to get your fanart printed in TAG Day 1, receive a free copy of the comic and more!

Contest Basics

- Get that party mojo flowing: The theme for this contest is Lu'au! Be creative - make it fun!
---> What is "Lu'au"?
Lu'au is a term used to describe a Hawaiian themed party! I'm using it pretty liberally here, so just something Hawaiinish/tropical/desert island/tiki/etc. with a festive mood, or an actual party if you want! Some imagery/stuff to get you going: tropical beach, umbrella drinks, grass skirts, leis (those flower necklaces), swimwear, beach games, music, ukuleles, drums, spitroasts, limbo, hula, surfing, fire, flowers, the list goes on! If you need any help with this just ask.

---> How much do we have to stick to the theme?
It's not strict, but something with a happy, fun atmosphere and a good dash of Hawaiian/tiki imagery is all I'm asking for!


- Your piece must involve ONLY characters from TAG Day 1! That's the first chapter!
---> Which characters does this mean?
TAG - Micki Bio by hostage-fiver TAG - SK Bio by hostage-fiver TAG - Cam Bros Bio by hostage-fiver

But you can also include the Captain ( hostage-fiver.deviantart.com/a… hostage-fiver.deviantart.com/a… (bottom left)) and the Mint-tastical Saviour Man ( hostage-fiver.deviantart.com/a… ) although I can't tell you much about him!

If you have any questions about any of the characters feel free to ask :3


Rules and Guidelines

- No Whickes or Pozzo, I'm afraid! If your piece includes characters not appropriate to Day 1 I will have to decline your submission.
- You may draw as many of the characters as you like in the piece - please consider their behaviour towards each other carefully!
- Keep it in the spirit of the story please, so nothing explicit!

- The book will be in full colour, use this to your advantage!
- Be sure to keep a copy of your entry that is suitable for printing:
..........* At least 300dpi
..........* Use 2480x3507 as a guideline size for your canvas, either portrait or landscape. This is the original size of the comic pages and will be the proportion of the book. You don't have to fill the whole thing, just keep these proportions in mind!
..........* High quality JPEG, GIF or PNG
..........* You may sign the artwork, but please no hindering watermarks on the print version!

- I will only accept artwork made after the starting date of January 1st 2011; you may not submit existing fanart!
- Each contestant may submit up to two entries (make as many as you like, but choose your two favourites for judging)
- To submit your entry, add it to the "Contest Entries" folder in TAG-Manga. If you have any problem with that note your entry to me instead and I will add it myself. Only entries in this folder will count!
(If you are joining from DrunkDuck and do not have a deviantART account I can post it to the group for you.)


deadline

Deadline is currently March 1st. Deadline has been moved to March 8th, a week later!
I can't offer much of an extension so don't leave your entry too late!


Judging

Normally I have a panel of judges, but as it is my production, I feel it should be my decision (usually we're all in agreement anyway).
Judging will be based on characterisation, creativity and effort, not necessarily technical skill. Try to keep the characters in character and pay attention to their physical details e.g. you can change her clothes, but Micki's eyes will always be gold~
Plenty of evidence of the Hawaiian party theme will help too!
A hint to tickle my fancies, remember kids: Fiver likes bright colours!

prizes

I may add to this yet, so fear not! Any donations are welcome too, of course.
