Christmas Contest

  Hi, my name is Cecily most people know me as LadySeshiiria on here. I wanted to hold a small Christmas Contest for fun! I want you guys to DIY your own ornament for your tree this year. The skies the limit on this one. As long as its Christmas themed it can be anything you want. You can make it out of any materials you want as long as it's not one of those premade package fun boxes. Those are the only rules. Anybody who participates must have their entries in by December 25th! To make things fun, I will choose three winners and host them in a journal on my personal page and in my group :iconnetwork-with-us: ! You will be able to pick 5 pieces of artwork you would like me to feature in these journals, I will also post your ornament! First place winner will also be featured in the featured folder on Network-With-Us! It will be a great way to gain exposure! If you are curious as to how to enter your project just shoot me a pm with a link subject description Ornament!

  Good Luck and Have Fun!

  
  ETA: November 24th Need more exposure? Try this!

  My Favorite of this week for sure! I'm so sorry Skyrim is a guilty pleasure and seeing such wonderful and detailed works of the dragons from the game just gave me the nerdgasms!

  Another amazing artist this week! I love their landscape concept arts. Being a hardcore fantasy fan, I can totally appreciate the time and effort spent into making buildings and landscapes. They also have an amazing talent for portraits! Makes me kind of jelly!

  A friend of mine that I just met recently! I actually started talking to her after I found the first image. I had questions as to how she did the work and she was eager to respond to me. Its hard to find such talented artists online that take the time to speak with their watchers and who are willing to share a bit of their success. Please check her out! She is multi-talented in subject matter and has a lot to offer!

  A friend I met a while back on a game I play. She is a talented artist as well she is good at blending multiple different mediums as well. Since I've started doing features I wanted to incorporate a few of her pieces! I really enjoy talking to her when I get the chance. I know I'm terrible at returning favors in game but I can do something here!

lol I know. I'm probably going to bag it but I'll hand out rewards for those who join anyway.
I guess I didn't give something people wanted. I thought exposure and features would have been cool but. Even with this other contest, I made I had to throw in points just to even get it attention. :/ I'll throw you up in my widget and we will do a feature anyway kk!

Yes, I know... I never hosted a contest myself, but I can imagine that lots of people "go for points" with contests. I mean - often I am the same. I either like the contest really a lot, or I look out for points. Though - I do not join many contests, there's just no time for it ^^

I see. Makes sense. Yes I joined a ton of raffles this month. Well, the first time ever this year. I decided to give it a whirl. I thought the more I joined the higher likelihood of me getting something. It's also good PR for the artists :)

We don't celebrate it in the Netherlands, but my day did go by pretty well.
Did you have nice celebrations?

:iconladyseshiiria:
LadySeshiiria Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, Thank you! I have so much to learn about other cultures :D That's cool what kind of things do you celebrate?
Reply
:iconvirtuxa:
Virtuxa Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Well, we do share some celebrations with you guys, like Christmas, but without the presents; Saint Nicholas is a celebration here that does include the presents and it's kind of similar to what Christmas is in America; Dutch Christmas, on the other hand, is more about just decorating the fuck out of your house and eating great food :')
We also have all sorts of local things; the South celebrates Carnival, here in the North we have the Dutch TT, motorraces that have all sorts of festivities surrounding them and in Zandvoort they have the Black Cross which, you guessed it, is a motorcross festival (we like our bikes up here).
There's also Sint Maarten, which is similar to how you guys celebrate halloween; kids go past the houses and collect candy. Halloween is actually also becoming a thing here, slowly, but it's more something us college students celebrate with weird costumes and copious amounts of alcohol :')

Sign me up for new holidays! I want a Christmas without presents as a focus. Good Luck with that here in America! I try really hard to just focus on family and food in my house too. Material things aren't worth bankrupting yourself over. I bet its way pretty over there. And the motocross! I could have fun with that, we go see sbk over here once in a while. I live a mile away from the Miller Motor Sports Track in Utah. Though sonny boy ran the company into the ground and now it's all local stuff. I miss seeing people from all over the world come here to race. Maybe one day it will happen again. I wish I could drink alcohol or soda but I got diagnosed with a bowel disorder so its like really ugly trying to eat certain foods. Painful :/ I miss being able to eat whatever I want. lol

Yeah, I agree.
Well, some of the decorations are very pretty, but over here people sometimes go a bit crazy in spending money on those decorations and it can look really tacky, but honestly; it's more amusing to witness than anything else. Some neighborhoods won't admit it, but they're definitely competing in who can go the craziest.

Shit like this actually happens :') People go nuts over here in their own way, I guess

Ah, that's a shame about the racetrack. It's indeed a lot of fun if you have people from all sorts of nationalities. 

And that sucks! I can totally understand missing all that stuff.

lmao XD OMG lol I tend to go for a different theme every year (Have like three different theme ornaments in my box, I trade off.) but I don't like things overboard lol XD I can see it now it's like the Christmas 1up Show! lol How do they sleep when it's that bright? lol

I guess my husband says they American Le Mans and Rolex cup series out here. They were talking about bringing Moto GP out here, but Miller Jr. screwed the pooch on it.

lol I'm okay though.

Hi, LadySeshiiria, and thanks for the feature :D 

I've watched bjbon14 for a long time, and was really happy to see his art here, too.  Looking forward to checking out everyone else's galleries as well -- you picked some great pieces to feature!
