With kind allowance from :iconadreos: , I will be submitting info on the contest I am holding currently, since I haven't gotten any entries for it. There are some cool prizes to be won (subs and art requests, etc), and fun to be possibly had, so if your interested, read on!

Q: What’s the Contests theme?

A: For this contest, your goal is to draw at least 2 of the 4 characters I’m going to reveal in a moment. What they can be doing can be totally up to you! Simple poses, having an adventure, picking their noses…whatever you like! You can even use different mediums. It can be a drawing, a comic, or even an animation!

So who are the 4 characters you get to pick from? Why any of these 4 of course!

Yay for reused pictures! Haha. *coughs* Anyway, you get to pick at least 2 of those four in the picture =) But you can also draw 3 of them, or even all 4 if you want =D

Q: How long is this contest going to run for?

A: The contest begins IMMEDIATELY, and will run until October 15th 2010. However, I might extend the deadline if enough people ask for it.

Q: Are there any rules to follow?

A: I do have some rules/guidelines that must be followed, or else your submission might be declined. And they are:

-Only 1 submission per person.
-If you decide to pick only 2 characters, it MUST be one male and one female.
-No yaoi/yuri pictures.
-No blatant sex pictures or anything that’s not allowed on DeviantArt. Suggestive pictures or partial nudity though is allowed. Just nothing TOO extreme okay? ;)
-They MUST be in character! The only exception to this is if your picture is more on the humor side, in which case, it is okay to make them somewhat out of character.
-You must be a member of Deviantart to join.
-You may include as many of your own fan characters as you want. However, the main focus of the picture must be around any of the 4 you picked.
-You must submit your piece to your own DA gallery, so you can link it to me. I will be displaying the entries as I get them.

Q: What are the Prizes?

A: I’m glad you asked!

1st PLACE = A 3-month Premium DA Subscription, an Art Request from me, AND a fan character of their choosing gets to cameo in the upcoming comic/animated series, ‘The Project’!

2nd PLACE = A 1-month Premium DA Subscription, and an Art Request from me.

3rd PLACE = 200 :points: and an Art Request from me.

I've decided also that there will be a consolation prize as well. So even if you submit an entry, but don't ultimately win, you'll still get something! But what? It's a mystery...:evillaugh: But I will say that the more submissions that are entered, the better this prize will be. So spread the word!

Q: How is this contest going to be judged?

A: Myself and GlideAirheart15 will be judging the entries. The good thing about this contest is that we won’t necessarily be looking for the most well-drawn piece. Rather, we will be looking at the content, and how creative the artist was in making their submission =)

Q: What can I do to better my chances of winning?

A: Remember, we’re judging the entries based on creativity, but also on how in-character you can portray the characters (unless it’s humor-based. See above rules). For example, if we see a picture of Glide and Misty making out, that won’t score a lot of points in our eyes, because Glide and Misty aren’t a couple (if by some chance you can get this pairing to work though, props to you :XD: ).

I know what you might be thinking though. “But I don’t know those characters that well!” That’s quite alright =) If you feel that you don’t know the character enough to do a good drawing of them, search through my and GlideAirheart15’s gallery! I have quite a few pictures of Starlight and Misty in my gallery that has information on them (plus a few of Glide and Zex), and for the boys, GlideAirheart15 ‘s gallery is where you need to search. Between the two galleries, you should find plenty of information on any of the 4 to make a cool drawing =D

But for those who are lazy...

Starlight -
Misty -
Glide -
Zex -

And that’s it! Hopefully it’s not too difficult to understand, and with any luck, I’ll draw up some quick ref sheets for the four ^^; If you still have questions, feel free to ask via note or comment in here! And if you do decide to join, good luck! But most of all, HAVE FUN!

Thanks for all who read this, and thank you more if you enter. Hope you all have a good day. =)

I think I might do this if I get a chance. I don't know if I will be able to finish it by the 15th though, but I'll try. I have a few ideas in my head.

Awesome. Make sure to read the rules carefully then, and if need be, glance through my gallery. Got a few pictures of the 4 interacting and maybe an idea will spawn from seeing such.

Just let em know if you need more time when were closer o the deadline. I might extend it.
VocalDawn Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Like I said, I already have some ideas. I'll probably just use Starlight was it? And Zex. To me it's just like Chip and the Wearhog, easy to do, and at the same time, funny.

I'll make sure to let you know.

Normally I don't like drawing characters who take Shadow's story and copies it, but... I have a thing for timid like characters.
Ulta Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sweet. I can't wait to see it then should you get around to doing it =)

And Starlight's not a complete Shadow rip in my opinion. She may have the same powers, but she's more unstable, and Shadow could whoop her butt in a fight easily cause he knows what he's doing. Plus in my opinion, Shadow isn't exactly a living chaos emerald, where Star is.

But ah enough of my ranting. Good like on the pic. Will be interesting to see a pic of Star and Zex only. *giggles like a school girl*

I never met to say she was a complete one if I did, I just mean the basic storyline of Shadow, being designed to the ultimate life form and all that is way too commonly used, if you know what I mean, so I just mean it in that sense.

I always like to tease and cause reason to tease a timidish character, so I'm forsure going to play on that, expecially with Halloween around the corner, so expect that sort of thing for sure. I just need to study Zex a little more to see what sort of thing he'd do excatly, plus, since I am trying to get better at doing backgrouds, I do plan to do a very detailed kind of background for it, that's why I'm thinking I might go over. Drawing it will take me a bit of time, I'm a slow drawer, but once I finish drawing I normally can color something pretty quickly.

I love Halloween. *hugs Zex*

I see I see. This is true, I know a bunch of people who's characters are UL's. Eh well, so long as they ain't complete Shadow rips, I don't see anything wrong with them provided they are interesting.

Hur hur, already it sounds amusing =) If you want, you can try and ask :iconglideairheart15: any questions you have about Zex. He's his character afterall.

Thank you very much. I'll make sure to ask him if I do. ^ ^
