About minishizzle

minishizzle is a brand new group dedicated to running on-schedule contests in creative themes. Mostly, our focus is going to be on Digital Dolling, though we may eventually deviate into other areas, such as pixel art, icons, or emoticons.

The intent is to run two contests a month, to keep them neatly updated, and to release results/awards in a timely manner. There may eventually be prizes for winners as well. We'll see!

We currently have several contests running; click their names below for more information or to enter, and click 'entries' to see the entries thus far.


Dryads Contest - Ends June 30th

If you want more, check out our One Round Contest Listing


General Contest Rules

  1. Submit only your own work. Other than the base, everything on the doll should be created by yourself. This means we ask for no premade props, accessories or clothing, and naturally will not tolerate any kind of frankendolling.
  2. Always provide a base credit. Give credit where credit is due, and link back to the basemaker if you can. If you use your own base, please state as much. This is to your own benefit.
  3. All entries must be made new for the contest in question. Please don't dig up an old doll that kind of fits with the theme provided and wedge it in as an entry. Make something fresh; our goal is to inspire!
  4. Be kind to your fellow entrants. Do not put down anyone else's work, or belittle their choice of base, style, or shading method.
  5. Always read all the rules for an individual contest, to make sure you undertand what's expected of you!

Ahhhh I miss the contests here, are there going to be any in the future by any chance? ;u;
beblue Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, I don't think so. ): if someone else wanted to take over the group, I'd be willing to hand it over, though?
PhoebeRose Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
why so dead minishizzle ;-;
beblue Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you want to take it over, let me know! It's unlikely I'll ever really get back into it and IDEK what's going on with Pyro.
PhoebeRose Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

Will there be any contests this summer?
FionaCreates Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
I hope to run a dA official contest (with prizes and everything) as CV on my page once I've sorted out this one :D
Crazy-Lola Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013
Heeeeyyyyy :) Any word on when a new contest will start?
beblue Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Probably the first of May; the low participation recently combined with our own busy-ness seems to make it obvious that this is a bad time for people. Maybe May-June will be better!
