-- Emailing me (or commenting below) works better than notes, and far better than comments. I always loose track of notes and comments sometimes never get seen: historyofhyrule.contests@gmail.com

-- Here's an image of just the prizes~ you can post either this, or that in your journal if you want: [link]

* Traditional art styles~ this means (CG or traditional Media) Drawings, Paintings, or Printmaking techniques. If you mock up printmaking styles on the computer- just make sure they're good. This contest isn't for what people would generally consider photo-manipulations, 3D crafts, or 3D renderings (Like MAYA or MAX.)

I have something really cool I'm working on for this, but there's no WAY it will be done before even midnight. I will continue to work on it, but is it possible to have a slight extension (by perhaps a few hours?) Either way, I'll submit it. Late or not....

Hey, Melora :) Better late than never - my third entry is here! I ended up tweaking my original concept - the first one had people, but I'm just not that good at drawing people digitally, heh. So now it's exclusively a fairy festival!

Haven't heard from you yet. Need to know that you received my emails and if there is anything else I need to do? I worked really hard on this drawing.

I have sent you a note and 2 emails. 2nd email I provided a resized version.

Here is my deviant link to my artwork for this contest:

I appreciate you checking and I understand where you're coming from, but I believe this is the 4th message in 17 hours? There is not that much to worry about and keep in mind, each one like this, takes a little time. I've received at least another 20 emails in the past 20 hours, over 120 for the contest in the past week, not to mention comments and notes on DA. (The last time I was on was late afternoon, yesterday, when I cleared the email queue) I try to go through the emails order. I very literally just got to yours, (I also received your new one,) so give me 20 minutes, for I have to go move a sprinkler that's watering my plants, and you'll have a response

a question which I think is a bit silly: it is only valid for U.S. or other countries can participate?
Reply
:iconwoodland-mel:
Woodland-Mel Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011
Well, it's a little late for this year's but- anyone can participate. I'm happy to ship to other countries. Only the sword and shield might not be able to go to some places. All the other items should be perfectly fine though.


The reasons: The sword because it IS actually sharp, so it ...has to be shipped as a weapon (which is ridiculous but) I don't want to get in trouble with customs or get anyone else in trouble. Some countries simply will not let you send a sword in. And the shield because it weighs something like a billion pounds and I just can't afford to spend $100 on shipping for a $40 item. I'll have to find out how much it costs from the post office if someone from outside the US wants it. I didn't realize how heavy it was before I got it, after I had announced it as a prize: so next year I'm going to wait until I get the items before offering them up.

I have an entry, and I'll email it in as soon as I can type! But It's a bit iffy, since I do have words in it. ^^; but without them I don't know how I'd pull it off. I'll title mine " The Tri-Festival" so you'll know it's me. ^^

Crap! You're not the first one who has had this problem! I'm wondering- did you maybe copy an email from a specific place? I might have typed it wrong somewhere (but, eek, I typed it in so many places /fail lol)

Somewhere in this post? XD;; I don't recall where, correctly. I was just going to reply to it, but I saw that you had asked for it to be emailed, so I just copied it off one of the comments.

finally started working on my entry. spent most of the day working on it actually.

ended up going with a spirit tracks theme over a kokiri one. it's not so much a festival as it it is a celebration of friendship, but there is an emphasis on music.

i should finish early tomorrow. just need to finish the background and add some magic effects =)
