Chatter of the Month - August

Holiday Hero Contest

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 26, 2018, 4:07 PM


Welcome to the next contest at ThumbHub!


The holiday season is upon us... Mass hordes of shoppers, quite literally knocking each other unconscious to get the best deal at your local Walmart. Children screaming in outrage over toys they see on television but cannot be granted instantly... Having to face the unwelcome realization that in only a few short weeks you will be forced to spend hours with family arguing politics, religious beliefs, and why both of your aunts brought the same dessert.


Of course there is plenty of good around the holidays as well. If you are headed toward winter, the delicious aromas of hot chocolate, cinnamon, and freshly baked apple pie will soon envelope your senses. If you are in the midst of summer, you can kick back and relax with Santa in swim trunks. You may get a couple things you asked for, you might get nothing, but you will hopefully experience the warmth of the season from people or the horrible yet addictive Hallmark Christmas movies.

This holiday season at ThumbHub, we are going to challenge you to create a two-part entry. There will be creativity required for both pieces but in different forms.

The Holiday Hero (or Anti Hero) Contest


The Basics
Your entry must have two parts:
  • Character design of your holiday hero or anti-hero.
  • A summary of who your hero/anti-hero is. Be creative and tell us a bit about the character you've created! What is their mission? What is their super power if they have one? Who is their nemesis and what are they trying to save the world from? Do they really hate snowmen? TELL US ALL ABOUT THEM! Remember this can be the goody two-shoes hero or it can be someone who uses more unconventional means to win the day.


Feeling confident? Let's get to the rules.

Some Rules n' Stuff

  • The entry must be submitted to the contest folder no later than Saturday, December 15th at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.
  • This is a holiday hero and should be designed/described as such! By holiday we mean a December holiday. Winter themed is ok too (sorry southern hermisphere... but Santa lives in the North Pole :giggle:). Basically... please don't make a Valentine's Day hero or the next Easter Bunny.
  • The character design should be YOUR idea (No, you cannot use The Grinch as your design ;P)
  • The character description must be less than 250 words and should be included in the deviation description.


It's the sound of victory... Or a squirrel in your Christmas tree...

You'll Be Judged On...

Overall, your entry will be judged on creativity. Is your character designed with the holidays in mind? Is your design well thought out and fun to view? Does your description bring the character to life?

Prize List!

Each Winner will Receive:

Really though, who wouldn't want a cat in a box for Christmas?

I made a mistake! I wanted to suggest a fave but the fave I shared, Gothic Beauty, got posted in the Holiday Hero Contest section. I don't know how to delete it, I'm so sorry!
