Hello and welcome to the SuperSonic-Art Spring / Summer Contest of 2018


Due to a goof in the copypasta the journal is now fix! APOLOGIES FOR THE CONFUSION!

Spring time is finally here, the weather is getting warmer and some of us are still suffering from cold and even snow. What the heck nature?
But Spring time brings together people with it's nice weather, blooming flowers and the return of the the BUGS but even better than spring is that Summer is right around the corner as well so that means even better weather and being able to enjoy your freedom from school, if you have to wait till June for that. Go and fight the ones to get Summer in May.

Anyways, these seasons are about having fun and spending time with others and relaxing. Going through that final push to get through school and once done, you're finally free. So what's a better way to celebrate these seasons than with a contest?

The last contest this group had was back in 2016 and 2017 was absent of one but this year we're bringing it back to encourage and inspire newcomers and long standing members alike.
Even more so, this contest will also include the summer season as this contest will be lasting through most of summer as well. Two seasons for the price of one.

Contest Theme

Showcase your character displaying their skills /powers and interacting with their world and how they contribute to to either spring or summer time. Your entry must include the essence of either spring or summer.
Official characters are allowed to be used for this contest as well.

What we're looking for in your entries are creativity and originality.
It's not about your art style, it's about how well you can capture the theme of the contest.
That doesn't mean you should be too lax about it either. All entrants should give it everything they've got regardless of their artistic skills.

Contest Rules

  • Must be an image entry. Sorry literature people. We'll make a contest just for creative writing in the near future I promise.
  • Must be completed artwork. No WIPs.
  • No recolors, traced, dollmaker or base art.
  • No fetish / extremely nsfw images. Keep things PG-13.
  • No hate art.
  • No journals

Prizes

I'm sure this is the part most people are most excited for.

1st Place Prize:
$50 / 5000 Points
1 Full Body, Full Color Drawing from XenoStateOfMind 
1 Full body, Base Color Drawing from XenoStateOfMind 

2nd Place Prize:
$25 / 2500 Points
1 Full Body,  Base Color Drawing from XenoStateOfMind
1 Thigh-up, Base Color Drawing from XenoStateOfMind

3rd Place Prize:
$15 / 1500 Points
2 Thigh-up, Colored Sketches from XenoStateOfMind

Other admins are welcomed to contribute prizes, just edit in your prizes whenever you have the chance to.


Deadline

July 15th, 2018 will be the deadline
That give all participants about 4 months to work on their entries and should give enough leeway for anyone still in school

Final Notes

We're hoping that we can gather enough people to enter this contest as well believe it should be a fun experience for all to have the opportunity to have. To encourage growth throughout all our members and to inspire others who may look up to them as well so that maybe next year they can enter and repeat the cycle. So by all means, spread word and encourage people to join in our group and contest.
We share a common goal in wanting to share our crafts with others and grow our skills to maybe one day work in a field where we can apply our artistic skills in. We here in the group can acknowledge and respect those goals so let this be the stepping stone to something greater.

We look forward to your entries and we wish you all the best of luck!


Edit: :iconumbral-calamity: here! I’ve created a folder for all the entries to be submitted to! >v< Please be sure to submit to the “spring summer contest 2018” folder in this group in order for your entry to ensure it is entered! It helps everything stay organized <3

We are also only allowing 1 entry per person so do your best!

The judges of this contest will be XenoStateOfMind and myself!

Questions: can i draw raining and blooming flowers because spring time is when it rains most? It kinda switches bewteen wet and dry so flowers often bloom according to my sources. Thunderstorms in summers lol. My character doesnt have any special powers, is that okay?

sorry, i just love learning about the nature of things before I draw what I have learned.

Does it have to include past/present Sonic characters (comic books/Sat AM/games) but your created Sonic fan characters are optional?

You can do either official characters or your own characters or you can do both! So long as it shows off the essence of spring/summer

Thanks a ton!! ^^I do have a few questions though:
How do we enter? Do we just send it in the comments, or just tag you in them?
Are we all limited to just one entry? BC I'm already have one sketched out and I'm starting on a second one. ;v;

You can entry by just saying you want to join! :3 And you can either tag me or submit your entry to the “spring summer contest 2018” folder to ensure that your entry is included! 

As far as the number of entries, I’ll have to get back to you on that because I have to ask about it ;o;
