Edit: We have updated the rules on August 22nd, 2015. Please read them all again to make sure you are up to date! Good luck and have fun~!

Hey all~! Its Goth-Kath here to announce what you've all been waiting for or didn't know you've been waiting for.
Rising-Artists Next BIG contest~!
Feeling pretty excited? We sure do! Now this contest is all based around the keyword improvement. And therefore we decided to host a "Draw this Again" contest based on the well known and most beloved "Draw this Again" meme by Bampire
----> Meme: Before and After by Bampire  <-----


How to Enter



The aim is pretty simple. For this contest we want you to take a piece that you used to love, or a piece that you just want to redraw, and draw it again. Stick as close to the original as you can~! (Same character, same pose, same expression, etc.) And show us how much you've improved!
Here is an example I made, but there are many more if you browse the "Draw this Again" tag.




Just give the rules below a quick read and you're ready to go~!

Rules




You must keep to all these rules to be eligible to win. Any and all admins can give participants a penalty as they see fit.

- Your "new" entry must be made specifically for this contest and this must be stated in the artist's description with a link to the group and contest
(Example: "Hi guys! This is my entry for Rising-Artists' "Draw It Again" contest! ([link to contest]) what an improvement eh?" )
- "New" pieces made/submitted before the release of this journal are NOT accepted. Memes made/submitted before the release of this journal are also NOT accepted
- Upload your "new" piece to your gallery separately (from the meme) and add a LINK to that piece in the description of your entry
- Your "Old" Piece (that you will redraw) must have been submitted to dA BEFORE the release of this journal
- In case you want to use another piece or have a piece in your Sta.sh that you want to redraw you can note the group or LokiDalton / Goth-Kath
- No copying, tracing, or stealing art
- No bases, the art must be your own
- All media is allowed (This includes Traditional, Digital, Crafts, Photography, Literature, etc.)
(Note: With Literature and Photography we will be looking at more then just improved grammar/better photo equipment. Think about things like improved lighting/composition for Photography and better flow of the story/poem with more use of adjectives etc. for Literature)
- Your "before" and "after" pieces must be combined in the "Draw this Again" meme (You may tweak it around to fit your pieces)
(Note: Literature people, just make ONE document with both your OLD and NEW writings (Make it clear which is which) and upload that with possibly the meme as top picture (Not necessary, however))
- You must add the year/date in/on which the pictures are made to the meme
- You must link back to the original meme in your artist's comment
(Note: Literature people, if you do not use the meme as top picture you do not have to link back to it of course)
- You can enter multiple times but can only win ONCE
- To be eligible your entry must be submitted to the group (and therefore intended folder --->rising-artists.deviantart.com/… ) before the deadline

Deadline



This contest runs from Saturday, August 15th, 2015 till Saturday, October 17th, 2015 at 23:59 (11:59 P.M.) EST

Judges



We will, for the biggest part, judge on individual improvement and not overall quality. This means that if you improved a lot and another artist submits pieces with stunning quality but less improvement you are more likely to win. We also keep things like dates of creation and the piece you chose to recreate in mind while judging.

Judging is done by all rising-artist' admins.

I'm slightly confused, and just looking for clarification on a few issues:

First, If I enter, I understand that my "new" piece would be a separate "deviation" from both Bampire's original blank meme and from my original "old" piece (meaning, there would be 3 separate, individual "deviations" here). So, which should be my official entry into the contest? (A) my new improved piece all by itself, or (B) the filled-in meme including both my old original piece and my new improved revision?

Second, regarding the date of the old original piece, what if the old piece I'm considering using was drawn literally years before the day I finally uploaded it onto DeviantArt? Should I list the date I uploaded it, or should I list the date I originally drew it in my sketchbook?

:iconlokidalton:
LokiDalton Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
You can, but we are only judging one "before" piece, so, if you have two "before" pieces (Say, for example, one from 2006, and another from 2009), we will judge your 2009 "before" piece with your "after" piece, and completely disregard the 2006 "before" piece, because not everyone is able to show two "before" pieces, and it would be unfair if we judged them both with the "after" piece~

"In case you want to use another piece or have a piece in your Sta.sh that you want to redraw you can note the group or Loki-Dalton / Goth-Kath "

Since we can clearly see that you are a new Deviant, we can accept your "old" piece, and you can redraw it (which you already have)~

Just put it into the meme, follow the rules, add the links, and submit it for the contest!~

Oh thank you for taking that into consideration,
I can post one in the meme and re link you,

Alternatively I could redraw something from my old account, Ashyannah. Everything on there is old and I think I could do better but it's a different account so I figured that might be more of an issue.

As stated in the rules, you're allowed multiple entries', but you can only win once. So if more then one is selected, the better of the them would be the declared winner of which ever place it came in.

As for the work on the other account, as long as your entry shows side by side comparison's of just the character being redrawn, with a link back to the meme you had it on, that's fine if that's the only copy remaining of the piece. So you can just download the meme and crop out the character(s) you wish to redraw and place them on Bampire's Meme side by side with the new art, but still linking back to your old meme. The point of links is just more so we can verify authenticity of its date of creation and an approximate time span of improvement progression.

I hope this kinda clears things up for, but if you happen to have any more questions don't hesitate to give us a holler. :)

Sorry, I do have another question.. I never did a thing like this and I really wanna participate but mainly see how/if I improved. I know you said I should stick to my old drawing as close as possible, but is it okay to change a hairstyle for example?

I don't know if I am correct in thinking "how would I draw it now" instead of just following my old self?

Thank you :)

:iconmtn-man:
Mtn-Man Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2015   General Artist
Stylistic approach to the redraw is something the artist will have to take into consideration as far as it comes to "redrawing" the original piece. Altering too much of the piece could result in making the redraw look more like a new unique piece, instead of improving off an original concept. With that in mind, I'd just say, if you decide to tweak the picture around, minimal concept altering should be the goal, while stylistic changes are something we view as an artist improving and developing their own unique way in creating art. 

I hope this kinda clears things up for, but if you happen to have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. :lol:

Yes, to a degree. We still need to maintain the fact that its a recreation of a past drawing, so in a sense yes.
