The rules for this contest are ASACB (as simple as can be): entries you submit for this contest must portray a character, being or person -- either real or fictional -- as an orchestral or symphonic musical conductor. Said characters can be inspired by anything music-based or whatever else you see best fit, and should wear a concert-themed, white-tie inspired attire along the lines of several pictures, which I'll provide as examples below for further explanation. There are no limits to how many entries you can submit for this contest (which ends on November 4th, 2018), so submit as many as you desire and link me to each of your entries once you publish them into your DeviantArt gallery and I'll be sure to give some feedback on it and include it in my 2018 contests favorites folder. Also, as a side note, I encourage all of you to share this journal to as many of your DeviantArt friends and fellow members as possible by posting your own journal entries which link to this one in particular, and the deadline to participate in this contest as a contestant or judge ends on November 1st, three days before the end of this contest. Good luck to you all, and have a very blessed July! Skull, over and out.

As for all the entrants who had priorities to take care of, I completely understand your constant business and will not allow myself to leave you people with empty hands and pockets, so I'm going out of m
