Ya'll remember a few years back I did a video contest for Audience, here's a reminder of that year's winner (cuz I still adore it lol) [link] !! Still heccin' awesome! But yeah I'm doing another video contest and this time it's about Home Grown Dogs my new animated series that is in the works right now. 


The videos will be judged based on quality and creativity! 


VIDEO prompt: create a video focusing on several of the main characters in my show, it can be silly, serious, anything really! If you have any questions about my characters or their relation to each other please ask. But please first read and check this link out with all the characters:  Home Canned Dogs characters by lUPISVUIPES

also their toyhouses in case you need any extra refs: 
toyhou.se/1919026.idle
toyhou.se/3176262.cover
toyhou.se/3176208.tupperware-t…
toyhou.se/1692419.socket
toyhou.se/3176237.uncle-left
toyhou.se/2864518.limit
toyhou.se/3565443.nat/gallery
(if you animate Total, she only has three legs! two in front and one in the back!! she didn't loose a leg it's just how she was made/born) toyhou.se/3002549.total/galler… (also total is a cyborg, also also pay's ref is on the sheet, there aren't many pics of him yet) 



Main plot of the show: Basically Idle, Cover, and Tupperware go on heists to destroy and steal things from Socket's factory-- their plans usually fail due to idle messing things up. Idle hates socket for personal reasons while Cover is along for the ride because she is trying to get back to her home planet and bring back enough cash/valuables to clear her name and come back as a hero to her dying and sick planet. All the while Cover's uncle is tracking the three of them down with his two 'henchmen' Nat and Limit. (seriously tho, read the info in the ref sheet above, it goes into more detail) 


=========================================
So for this contest here is what you can do:
AMV (animated music video)
PMV
Animated video (scene, vines whatever you want) 
Animated meme
original meme 
etc. Ask if you want to do something and have a question about it! 
================================================
What you can't do:
A single gif ( this is a video contest, so it has to be a video!) 
Animash or Edited video with my own animations (I allowed that the first year, but I don't have enough animations of the cast uploaded yet for anyone to even edit a video of them, so i'm gonna keep it off limits for now) 

Rules: 
1) keep it appropriate (nothing sexual)
2) Minor violence is fine (like punches, small cuts etc) please don't put any blood or gore tho! There's none of that in my show because it's a comedy and will be pretty lighthearted so please keep it that way ^^ 
3) no fighting w/ others 
3.5) please don't use any songs that cuss excessively! 
4) the video must be at least 15 seconds long
5) feel free to ask me questions if you have any questions!!

Hey guys! WOW I had an amazing turn out for the video and it was pretty much first come first serve so it filled up QUICK! So sorry to the people I didn't get to include this time, but I would love to add more later on if I can!! And possibly do something like this again in the future! Thanks so much! :D I look forward to working on this!! 
I'm making a 200k appreciation video, and what better to do that with than a weird song with a bunch of cameo characters! And I do mean a BUNCH, there are 56 slots ONLY so you better hurry if you want to get a part that you like! Basically how this will go is, you choose a part of the song that fits your character, I'll animate your character singing that line! If you have any questions please ask. 

To enter you must read these rules/directions carefully:

I'm so excited you guys!! This is going to be SO fun! >8'3c 
Draw to Adopt! CLOSED RESULTS SOON! by lUPISVUIPESHoly cow this was the hardest DTA i've done to judge, I asked a few friends their opinions and I think i've come to a conclusion. Everyone did SO fantastic that it just drove me crazy even trying to narrow it down especially with all the different amazing mediums!?!
Anyway here's the results! 

Winner and owner of the character: :iconjamsbunnies: with their video entry here! 

I just adore how they interpreted the character and gave them so much personality! The animation is smooth and fun to watch, song choice PERfect of course! And I could really see them using this character a good bit too! ^U^ I keep rewatching the video over and OVER. I really liked seeing the character interacting with their other ocs too! I'm a sucker for animations and AMV's x'D <3 lovely job, I can tell you put so much time and effort into it! 
----------------------------------------------------
And here are the honorable mentions, I adore each of these and had so much trouble choosing--- it was very VERY close! 
Minty by Ninpisn Candy! DTA by CinderDuck Time For Dessert [entry 1/?] by m0thdog<da:thumb id="776578489"/> yYyYayaiii hOJ by sof-a [Animated][Contest Entry] Bongo Candy by SPVCESHIP<da:thumb id="777152352"/> [animated][Contest Entry] sweet child by SPVCESHIP(some of the previews keep crashing so I'll post just the links ) 
Hey guys for the candy draw to adopt, i'm having a very hard time choosing between a few individuals submissions! Everyone did a fantastic job which is why i'm so SO stuck! Would it be ok if I made a poll and put each entry that im stuck on and let everyone judge it this time on which they like best? Lemme know what you guys think of this idea? 
EDIT: Don't worry if you didn't get in, I only accepted about 8-ish members. If you did not get a reply, that does not mean you failed! I got a lot of entries and stopped looking at them once I filled the quota. But do not worry, I will add more later as I see fit! Thank you guys for auditioning, you all have done amazing and I look forward to adding more of you in later!! 


So if you haven't read my last journal here it is:  Color Artists for Home Grown Dogs!!!!So there was a group of people who were interested in being color artists for my show (at least the first episode!) from a past journal, and I've realized more than ever HOW much I need help with the coloring especially! It's going to be a lot of work on both of our parts, i'll be cranking out lineart/frames as fast as I can. I don't know how many color artists I'll need, but they will need to be trustworthy and able to finish coloring (Especially since i'll be paying them with money or art (they will have the choice between the two) It'll be super fun to collaborate with more people and help me get this project out faster! I'm so honored that people already have asked to help me in this way! 
Benefits/what you get: 
-Your character will be included + animated meme once I finish the episode, I will make a group video and animate everyone's characters who helped on the episode! 
-I can pay in individual art/paintings and/or money. It'll be a certain amount per gif basical
 

I'm not making the video after all, but this is just a little test to see who will be color artists. I'm going to take 8 color artist positions open right now, but I may open more later! The rules are basically:
-be kind (in the discord group, I don't want to have drama in it)
-I'm looking for color artists who will get it done pretty quickly , so over a week will be too slow I think and I don't want to be wondering if it'll get done or not. I'll be working practically none-stop on frames, I really wanna get this episode out there! 
-I use photopshop elements 11 for coloring and animating, but you do not have to use the same program to be one of the color artists.
I'm looking for clean color (nothing on the outside, no white lines around or inside of the lineart) and it must be given to me as a .psd file so that I can open it in my program. If there is a problem please tell me! 

The character for this 'test' will be Socket for a scene for my show!  use this as a ref! 

(SHORT) Here is the example of less frames: 

PSD

No Preview


(LONG) Here is the example for more frames: 

PSD

No Preview
  


So this test is simple, just download whichever you want to do and then send it to me over notes, it must come back as a psd and must be clean and what i'm looking for in order to get to be part of the color artist group for Home Grown Dogs. Don't really shade it, i'll probably be doing that~ Don't change the order of the frames. If you have any questions please feel free to ask! I'm super excited to have you guys on the team!! 
Have fun! 
And thank you for all the interest in being part of the Home Grown Dog coloring team!!

-I can pay in individual art/paintings and/or money. It'll be a certain amount per gif basically? I'll get into more detail later, so the more set of frames you color the more money you can earn. (if that makes sense? what'd ya'll think? Like gifs/files of 10 frames or lower will be a certain amount, but if it had 20 frames or more it'll be more money depending on how big it is etc?) 
-You will be invited to a private group on discord where you'll get to see sneak previews of Home Grown Dogs (what I have so far) AND also wip stuff of course! 
- Credit at the end/beginning and description of the episode once I post it! And my love and appreciation for your help ;w; ! 

------------------
This is just me spewing out ideas, but I will make a video soon with a set of  frames for people to color as a test? If that makes sense! and then those who do a good job will be invited to the discord and I'll have more info in the discord as well as the video. 
What do you all think? Any suggestions or thoughts on this plan? I want to make it fair to the people coloring and as well for myself so we can finish making Home Grown Dogs together! 
The DTA ends tomorrow! finish last minute entries!!!!!!!! 
I want to thank all these amazing people for the art they made me, (I am trying to get better at this, but for some reason I get super nervous replying individually and especially if I'm late replying it makes me reply less and less... so I wanted to still show my appreciation for all these amazing pieces of art for me!) I REALLY love all of these and its hard for me to express it, but I absolutely adore all the art and support and I just am so thankful and I want to feature these pieces so they can be seen more! Thank you again guys!!

Hey guys, I just wanted to update that I am working on official prices for my commissions and such cuz I get a lot of notes about it, and i've been meaning to make a price sheet for ages now!? So know that, that is coming soon. 

I always want to say that my commissions are currently closed, but will be opened again so don't worry about that!

As for trades I get a lot of people asking about trades/commissions, and all I can say about that is-- I've got a lot on my plate and after the commissions/trades I currently have my main priority needs to be my show. and I wanna work on my show, but I also sometimes have a hard time saying no to people cuz I don't want to upset anyone. But at the same time I'm learning it's healthy to say no. SOoooo, no they aren't open right now. Unless I open small batches if an emergency happened or something, but for right now it's all closed for a bit. But I will finish stuff I owe now.

Anyway, i'm just so honored by all the kind words and seeing how caring you guys are, I appreciate that people are interested in my designs and such, so thank you for being interested and my commissions will open again and it probably wont be too long. 

Thanks guys, have a great night! 
Thank you guys for being so patient with me, and for the kind words lately and I wanted to update that i'm doing fine and there's nothing to worry about. Sometimes it's good to take time to take care and spend time with family in hard times, so I appreciate your patience a lot! <3 And my family is also doing fine now so thank you guys for the kind wishes and prayers. 
---------
Ok back to the title at hand- so it seems like entries have slowed down significantly-- so I think it's time I close it now. But since I didn't actually close it on the date I said I would, i'd like to give you guys the rest of today to finish and upload any last entries you might have! 
There are so many interested entries, i'm just so eager to pick already, and i've already seen some that I like a lot so QwQ''' !! 

Anyway that's all I have for now, but hurry now to finish what you've got left cuz i'll choose tomorrow...or late tonight... Let's say it'll end tonight at 8:00 pm mountain time. 

Thanks guys! :D have a great day! 
Hey, i'm back from south carolina and such! If you're curious what I was doing there, it was for a church conference in greenville and itttttttt was crraazy. Anyway, glad to be home so I can get back into the swing of things, I hope ya'll are doing alright and had a good halloween! 

In the comments say what you dressed up for halloween, and/or if you didn't dress up or had other plans that day i'd love to hear what you guys did during that time! Happy late spook fest! Jack-o-lantern - floating GIF | PIXEL 
The tail entries seem to be slowing down a lot, and I realize for a small contest ya'll don't really need a month long. I'm thinking about ending it soon, but I wanted to give you guys a chance to give your opinion on this. So comment below if you need more time, or have an opinion on this!
