And now let's see the most boring and annoying part: the RULES Megaphone Megaphone


Bullet; Red Everyone can enter! Just leave a comment below (or fave this journal) and you're in. Of course you don't have to 'watch' Added to my devWatch! me; be a watcher only if you like my art!
Bullet; Yellow You can enter as many times as you like, but you can win only once. (Except if it's a bonus prize)
Bullet; White Entries must be in Colour, though if you can't colour then I still accept Black/White or Gray-scale, but no  linearts or simple sketches.
Bullet; Black It can be digital or traditional.
Bullet; Blue
Any form of art is allowed. It can be anything and you can
use any style you like (full body/bust up/headshot/chibi/realistic/anime style, your own personal style/animation/pixel art/icon, etc.)
Bullet; Green When you finish you entry (your entry must be new, you cannot enter my contest with an old picture you probably drew for me in the past), submit it at the DA deviantART community, adding the link of my contest and mention me at the description.
Bullet; Orange Inform me by commenting on this journal with the link of your entry. All the entries will be favoured and put up in a specific folder. (Just in case I'm clumsy, be sure that your entry ended up at the right folder).
Bullet; Purple You are allowed to use references but no bases or linearts.
Bullet; Pink Have fun!! That's not just a rule or suggestion, that's an order!! =P (Razz) kidding.

Do you have questions? :? (Confused) Check below before you ask -you may find your answer:

F.A.Q.



#1 Please read!

Something I faced before and it was a very bad experience. For my contest I'll become a cold, fair, distant judge Judge rip (i'll now be hitting the POLICY VIOLATION REPORT BUTTON!) ! Every artist and entry will treat all the same. No one -I repeat- NO ONE will get any special treatment or more privileges just because they happen to be my friends, my inspiration, my motivations, my idols etc...
No way! I'll be fair and everyone will be treated equally!

There, I made myself clear.



Μinimum entries: 21!

If there’s gonna be less than 21 entries, my contest will be cancelled! In this case the artists which already submitted at least one entry to my contest will receive 5 Points as honourable prize.


Phew! I think I wrote everything... and I feel dead tired already I'll be your huckleberry!

St. Patricks Day! Good luck to you all St. Patricks Day!

Special thanks to everyone who volunteered to offer a prize. You guys and gals rock!:happybounce:

Liquisoft All entries at the folder:  here Thanks for everything!


Melan Anime, at your service!I salute you!



P.S. I'm so excited to see how many of you guys and gals will enter my contest and I can't wait :eager: by darkmoon3636 to take a look at your wonderful art!:hooray:

depends on what time zone you live in... in Greece is GMT+2. Since a lot of people was asking me, i made it Dec 31, BUT as i already informed at my message i'll be off net for some days, i have no idea how many, therefore i'll accept all entries that it's delay 'til i'll be online again.
