Welcome to the annual MYO contest!
This is the second MYO, let's hope this year goes even better! A new feature this year is the ability to design Rosebuds along with Rosales!
Your judges this year will be , , and , with prizes from all three of us!
Before you do anything, check out the Rosales weebly!
All the information you need on the species itself can be found here.
-You'll be designing the Forest Variant only for this contest
-You must draw one fullbody, coloured image for your entry. It can be digital or traditional. An outfit is required for Rosales, and at least one accessory for Rosebuds.
-You can draw multiple images and outfits for one Rosales/Rosebud
-Entries are unlimited! Only one will be eligible to win though
-The art must be by you, no bases. Friends may help you with the design though!
-You may not change or add variants to your Rosales/Rosebud once it's been made official (outside of special occasions)
-You may trade or gift your Rosales/Rosebud, but please don't resell for more than you paid (commissions etc)
UPDATE: The contest ends July 15!
Entries will be judged on originality, effort, and creativity. Detailed backgrounds and personalities are encouraged and will greatly increase your chances of winning. Art will not be judged on skill alone, but the effort put into it.
There's an unlimited amount of winners in each category, with Rosales and Rosebuds being judged separately. The more entries = The more winners! New prizes may be added.
The overall winner is the best judged entry between both Rosebuds and Rosales. Only one person may win this. They will get both a Rosebud and Rosales form of their entry, an incredibly rare opportunity! They'll also win:
+Their entry drawn on both the Rosales and Rosebud bases
+Their entry drawn on the chibi bases
+Chibis from all three judges! Examples:
Roccoco-Co (x), lynstrommr (x), spottedfawns (coming soon!)
Winners of both categories will have their entries drawn on the official bases!
Runners up will receive their entries drawn on the chibi bases!
Anyone in the honourable mention category will be able to keep their Rosales/Rosebud for free!
Those who don't win will be able to make their entry official for a small fee, more details once the contest ends!
Traits-Please go here for a simple overview of Rosales/Rosebud Traits!
-A more indepth guide can be found at the weebly
About Traits:You begin the contest with only common traits available, and earn uncommon, rare, and very rare traits by performing various tasks. You can put all your earned traits on one entry, or spread them out across multiple entries.
PLEASE COMMENT HERE WITH LINKS/PROOF WHEN EARNING TRAITS!
This way I can let you know the exact amount of traits available to you, and avoid confusion. If you've been referred please also comment there!
-Advertising anywhere on dA earns you one uncommon trait (journals, polls). You may advertise as many times as you want but can only earn one trait per week using this method.
-Referring others to the group will also earn you an uncommon trait. They must actually join the group and provide proof! You'll receive one trait per person.
-Advertising on three additional websites outside of dA will earn you one rare trait, and you may earn one a week.
-If you can convince one person to join the contest, you may earn a rare trait. They must actually submit an entry along with providing proof! You earn one trait per person.
Very Rare Traits:
-If you manage to earn 2 uncommon traits + 1 rare trait, you may trade them in for a very rare trait. This can be done as many times as you want, providing you can earn the points! Please comment in the sta.sh above to confirm!
Alright, I've read over everything, now what?When you're done with your entry/entries, submit them to deviantART and add them to the group folder 'MYO Contest 2015'
In your description, include any background/personality information, along with a list of traits you've given your Rosales/Rosebud! You should also include a link to this journal.
I also recommend checking out last year's entries for inspiration!
And that's it, good luck! If you have any questions please comment!
Rosales Guest Artist Applications
Hi! Welcome to the official guest artist applications. I'm going to be creating a Discord for guest artists where everyone will be pinged when openings come up for new guest batches, as creating a new journal each month will be a bit excessive. Once your application has been approved I'll add you to this Discord! What I'm looking for: Artists with experience designing humans or monster people, please include at least one example of this type of art in your app!Someone who can meet deadlines - I'd like to put out guest batches once a month so being able to complete your design within that time frame is required! Note that you don't have
Rosales Mod Applications
Hello! This is something I've been mulling over for a very long time, I was a bit reluctant to ask for mods when I first made this group simply because I thought... Rosales simply weren't popular enough to need them aha. I'm realising now however that I do need some help, as there's still so much I need to implement into this group and when I think about it I get incredibly overwhelmed and put off even trying to scratch the surface x__x. I think having a circle of people to help and encourage me will do wonders for the progression of this group.... so this is where you step in! So! As the title suggests I'm looking for mods. I'm very eager a
The Future of Rosales
Hello! I apologize for my absence and lack of activity regarding the Rosales community. If you follow me over at Roccoco-Co (https://www.deviantart.com/roccoco-co) you've probably seen that I started university in October and it's eaten up a lot of my spare time meaning I haven't been able to focus on adoptables or anything else involving Rosales. I've also been thinking a lot about my plans regarding the species and world, and what direction I'd like to take them in. I've found my focus shifting from things such as creating adopts, being limited by traits and rarities, and the stresses of auctions - and instead I've become much more invested in the lore and world of Rosales.
Rosales Master List!
Hello! As you guys know I'm hoping to completely revamp the group soon, but for now I need to focus on college. In the meantime however I've made a new account for the master list! rosales-masterlist (https://www.deviantart.com/rosales-masterlist) Please check it out if you'd like to participate in future group activities. I'll be revamping the application sheet soon too, it won't be mandatory to take part in the group but simply act as a little ref for more in depth information. As an extra incentive I'm hosting a raffle to get art of your Rosales if you submit! Check it out here: :thumb679332096:
I'll be posting an official journal sometime tomorrow morning most likely (it'll work out best for everyone due to timezones haha), so you have about 12-15 hours to get your submission in (:
thank you! please link the journal over at
