OPEN | Nemanoub's Journey Contest (2K Watchers) !Hi there everyone !!As promised, here's a contest for the 2000+ watchers ! :>(well, actually you're already 2400+ now; thank you all so much for your support ♥ and sorry for being a bit late hhhh, things have been busy latelyyy)I was mainly intending to make this a design contest, but in order to make everyone happy there will be a "draw my OC" category as well; I'd like this contest to be a fun event for all of you c: anyway, details are listed below !And without further waiting, here's what I propose you...,• NEMANOUB'S JOURNEY •"Nemanoub is a young lady from a masari tribe. As a druid and a shapeshifter, she's expected to embark on a quest to learn more and to communiate with nature and its fauna. She is now going on a long and perillous travel in order to do so... Who knows what intriguing creatures she will encounter on her journey ?"Nemanoub will have to travel through 3 different locations; your mission is to imagine an encounter in one of these places !The Palmito Forest...,...the "Savanna's Watchers"...,...and the Faeries Healing pond !,To do so, pick one of these two subjects :Subject 1 : Imagine a creature who could live in one of the three environments, and draw its encounter with Nemanoub.Subject 2.a : Nemanoub could also encounter one of your already-created OCs...Subject 2.b : ... or she could as well meet Eldrann the wandering traveler, or Tshepiso the jalimusoo; if one of them (or both) inspires you, you could draw an encounter with any of them ! (refs below)More about Nemanoub...,22 years old | 1,82m | Thin and tall, and a bit clumsy for her sizeNemanoub is a bit of a coward, shy and fearful young lady, but she aspires to be as brave and valiant as the bravest leaders of her tribe !As a druid, Nemanoub is able to grow plants and to shapeshift; she still has a lot to learn however, and can only transform into a big feline for now.,- A bit more refs here if needed -...more about Eldrann....Eldrann is an itinerant pet trader... but also easily finds himself wandering in places he didn't intend to visit - well, let's say it : he's pretty much lost all the time !- @Escapado-draw 's character ! -,...and more about Tshepiso !Tshepiso is a jalimusoo; she travels from place to place to tell her stories to anyone who's disposed to listen !- @Ampraeh 's character ! -,,,Rules- To enter, you just have to be a watcher (new watchers are welcome !)- Tag me and the judges ( @Ampraeh and @Escapado-draw) on your finished entry, then comment here with a link !- DEADLINE : 14th March, 23:59 UTC+1 General Rules- Make a coloured drawing- No sketches or B&W pieces- Backgrounds are appreciated- Comics and animations are welcome - Any style accepted ! Realism, cartoon, painting, flat, pixel art, traditional or digital... an artwork is an artwork !- Make your own drawing from scratch; don't draw on my backgrounds and don't use bases !- You can draw multiple entries, but only your best one will be counted (you can't win twice)- No NSFW or fetish stuff, please,Subject 1 - Imagine a creature !- Your drawing must depict an encounter between Nemanoub and your designed creature.- It can be huge or tiny, gentle or agressive, humanoid, animal or a mystical being... do what you want, as long as you have fun !- Be original, be creative ! Avoid making creatures we always see on fantasy illustrations (random dragons and such) !- You can draw as many individuals of your species as you want, but it has to be only one species : one entry = one design- You're free to keep your design after this ! I don't want to receive free new characters, I just want to have fun looking at your creations and to spend a good time creating something together :> Subject 2 - Draw an encounter !- Your drawing must depict an encounter between Nemanoub and your OC, or with one of the judges' OCs.- You can pick any of your characters, no matter who or what they are, and in which context they live ! Be creative :D, Judges Team and How we'll pick the winners !In order to pick the winners, I'll be helped by two judges, @Ampraeh and @Escapado-draw ! (they're amazing friends and artists, have a look at their works <3 )We want to be as fair as possible and to value your ideas, intentions, efforts and involvement as well as originality rather than your skills.Everyone can enter and anyone can win, no matter your level ! Just make a drawing that you enjoy, be creative, have fun, try to tell us a story through your art and do your best !And since skill doesn't matter, don't hesitate to try things and to take risks ! A full drawing with a great composition ? An audacious perspective, lighting or color work on your art ? A comic, an animation, anything that could look like a great piece of art ? Even if you are not used to work on these and no matter how it turns out, any attempt at making such a well-thought artwork will be highly appreciated ! :>,• Rewards •9 winners in total : 3 for the Design subject, 3 for the OCs subject, and 3 entries subjectively picked by each judge !For each "Judge's Favorite" (3 in total) :Quick Sketch Painting from meB&W Portrait by @AmpraehSketch Page from @Escapado-draw,Subject 1 - Imagine a creature1st place30$ (or 2400 DA points)Detailed Fullbody Illustration with a background from meMini Scenery with 1 or 2 characters from meBlock Scenery from @Escapado-draw B&W Fullbody by @AmpraehOne adopt of your choice in this folder *or* a Custom Design *or* a Simple Fullbody from me2nd place15$ (or 1200 DA points)Detailed Halfbody Illustration with a background from meMini Scenery with 1 character from meB&W Halfbody by @Ampraeh Quick Sketch Painting from meBoxed Character from @Escapado-draw 3rd place5$ (or 400 DA points)Mini Scenery with 1 character from meQuick Sketch Painting from meB&W Bust by @AmpraehSketch Page from @Escapado-draw,Subject 2 - Draw an encounter between Nemanoub and your OC / judge's OCs1st place30$ (or 2400 DA points)Detailed Fullbody Illustration with a background from meMini Scenery with 1 or 2 characters from meSketch Page by @Escapado-drawB&W Fullbody by @AmpraehOne adopt of your choice in this folder *or* a Custom Design *or* a Simple Fullbody from me2nd place15$ (or 1200 DA points)Detailed Halfbody Illustration with a background from meMini Scenery with 1 character from meB&W Halfbody by @Ampraeh Quick Sketch Painting from mePNG Character by @Escapado-draw 3rd place5$ (or 400 DA points)Mini Scenery with 1 character from meQuick Sketch Painting from meB&W Bust by @Ampraeh2 Geometrique PNGs by @Escapado-draw,Well well well, I said everything I think :> I hope you'll like this little event, good luck and most of all : have fun ! :DDEADLINE : 14th March, 23:59 UTC+1I will not change the deadline, by respect for those who managed to make it in time !,
