Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! UPDATES Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U!

- Okay,  so I have a huge deadline for work next week and won't be able to do much on DA. To make things easier for me (and probably for you too) I extended the deadline to the 5th of June. Sorry guys, I swear I won't extend the deadline again.

- The very kind WonderlandTrades donated prizes as well: a 1 minute animated movie to fit your favourite song! Like this: [link]

- Some people ran out of time, so I changed the deadline! It is now June 1st!

- The awesome 
ArielaNewt has offered a headshot for ALL participants who made an entry! How kind is that? 

- I have five entries, meaning there will be two winners. More entries = more prizes, so keep them coming!

- I dropped the minimum size of 500 words rule for written entries. Your entry can have any length now (I do favour longer ones though).



Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! SEVEN SEVEN SEVEN Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U!
 
I've hit 777 watchers recently! 7 is my favourite number, and three of them in a row looks neat. A bit of a ridiculous reason, but ridiculousness must be celebrated. I promised to organise a contest when this happened, so here we go!


Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! SEVEN WINNERS Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! 

Instead of one winner who will get all the goodies, a group of people will end up with prizes! The number of winners goes up with the number of entries.

≤ 4 entries = 1 winner
5 to 8 entries = 2 winners
9 to 12 entries = 3 winners
13 to 16 entries = 4 winners
17 to 20 entries = 5 winners
21 to 24 entries = 6 winners
≥ 25 entries = 7 winners

So that's one winner for every four entries, unless I get more than 25 of them. Oh, and with entry I mean an actual entry, not someone who promises to make one. I might end up with more winners than participants otherwise.



Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! THE THEME Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! 

It's a 'draw my OC' contest, but it has a twist... In case you don't know: I'm writing an epic fantasy story, a State of Equilibrium, and I'll share seven very vague snippets from my manuscript. Your job is to pick a snippet and show what is going on. Do whatever you want, as long as I can see which snippet you picked. The medium doesn't matter: you can draw, craft, write, whatever you can think of. Also, I removed the names and genders in the snippets so that you have more room to fool around. 

Your entry should include at least one character of mine, but feel free to let him or her interact with some of your own creations! I'd love to see that, actually.

    Characters:
Here is a my character list. Pick one (or more) of these guys and have fun with them. It includes some secondary characters too, so the list is quite long. The more the better, right?


    Story snippets:
Pick one and have fun!

1.
The fire grew. Its flaming tongues spread, formed tentacles, then solidified into legs. The ground hissed and blackened when the burning beast touched it. A big, snarling mouth emerged, filled with smoke and teeth of heat. 

Xe recognised it. The element might be different, but the creature was the same. Xe pushed xer back against the wall. 

Not again, please. Let it go away... 


2. 
'No, I just need their colour.'


3. 
The forest was neither big nor dense. The trees disappeared much sooner than xe hoped, and xe ran into a fallow field. 

Xe came to a slipping stop; the field was occupied. 


4.
'Next time I will leave you at home, grandpa.'


5. 
'What kind of magic is that?'

'Alcohol.'


6.
Character A opened the door a bit further, and peeked into the living room. Character B hadn't walked into the apartment yet. Actually, B didn't seem to want to get inside at all: B was looking at the building's walls, instead of prying open the lock of the balcony doors. If B truly was a burglar, xe was an odd one.


7. no, you don't get bonus points for picking my favourite number
'And that's why you should wear trousers.'


So for example: if you like that last sentence a lot, your entry should contain one or more of my characters and something involving much-needed, but missing trousers... I am going to regret this.

When the contest is over, I'll share the bits of my story where these sentences come from. Let's see how your imagination differs from mine ;)



Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! THE GOODIES Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! 

Each participant will get his/her entry featured in a journal and I'll throw +fav at you! Also, I would like to share your artwork on my website. I'll add a link to your DA page, of course. However, this only applies to artwork entries, since I haven't figured out how to feature written works on my site.
 
The winners get:
Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! 777 points!
Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! 7 artworks of yours to end up in a feature journal.
Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! 7 critiques - or just comments, if you don't want them or if I'm simply not capable of writing a critique. I suck at giving feedback to poetic stuff, for example.
Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! Everlasting fame and hugs (at least from me, hehe)!

That's 5439 points in total, if I receive enough entries for seven winners! Seven winners: the odds have never been so much in your favour! Enter, I dare you...

And I want to offer artwork too! Instead of 777 points, you can get:

Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! a free digital commission, portrait, simple background (which is worth a lot more than 777 points).
Gift - birthday dragon by queenofeagles I only wanted to draw that earcuff... by queenofeagles Terra by queenofeagles Sir Smirks-a-lot by queenofeagles Dynaisajia by queenofeagles

Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! two pencil drawings, portraits, no/simple background (also worth more than the points, I guess).
  Gift - tree deer by queenofeagles  There is stuff growing in my hair... by queenofeagles  Orion's horns by queenofeagles Woolf by queenofeagles  Just a horse... by queenofeagles 

Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! one pencil sketch (also a portrait) and 389 points.

However, since I'm a bit of a busy person, I do not have the time to draw art for everyone. Therefore, I will only draw 1 digital commission and 3 pencil sketches. First person who wants to trade his or her points has first choice.

Dot Bullet (Black) - F2U! DEADLINE

 SOME RULES  

 This is for fun, so please keep it fun. Be kind, don't steal things that do not belong to you.

 You can submit an unlimited amount of entries, but only one can win.

 All media is allowed! Writing, gardening, duct-taping, fingerpainting - whatever you want to do!

 Submit your entry as a DA submission, not a stash file. I want to make a folder with the entries and I can't do that with stash files.

 You must link back to this contest in the description of your entry.

 Also mention which snippet you picked in the description.

 Leave a comment here with a link to your entry when you are done. It would be a shame if I would miss it somehow.

 Literature does not have to contain the exact story snippet. However, the contents of the snippet must be easy to recognise. 

 NSFW entries are allowed, as long as it fits with DA's submission rules. And please don't forget to put the mature filter on your entry if you do. I need a censored version for my own site though (if you want me to show it there).



  TIPS  

 I've made a Guide to aSoE. You can find information there about races, creatures, languages, geography and history. So if you want to go for accuracy, please take a look at it. 

 This sounds like advertising, but... I've got chapters here that feature some of the characters. Go read those if you want to get to know them better. You can also take a look at my artwork. An overview of everything aSoE-related can be found here: My art and literature folders.

 Be creative! I will not judge you on drawing/writing skills, I just want to see something interesting. That said, please try to stay somewhat true to my characters. Thanks!



 CAN I, THE POTENTIAL PARTICIPANT OR JUST SOMEONE WHO LIKES THIS, HELP?  

Sure! you can donate prizes! I've started a donation pool for points. Go to my profile page to find it.

Other prizes are welcome too! Think of free artwork, artwork features, favs, llamas, watches, or feedback/critiques. It would be best if it can be given to 7 people. If that's not possible though I can turn it into a special prize ;) 

Also, can you please share this? Via journals, polls, or tagging people who might be interested. More entries means more winners!



 CAN YOU, QUEENIE, HELP?  

Sure, you can always ask me for more details about my story or characters, or tips if you are struggling with something.

Thanks so much for hosting this contest!
