recap of previous contest
Welcome to December's animé fanart/OC contest (and the final one): Please read through all the rules before submitting
*** Subject for this month is: Save the Best for Last
Yep, you didn't read wrong... I'm taking a break from the contests and features. This will be the final contest that will be held. (Will there be more contests in the future you might ask?? No idea ... only time will tell I guess).
Anyhow, I think the subject this month is pretty self explanatory and matches the occasion. So draw a scenario depicting the subject mentioned using animé character(s) or animé styled OC (Original Characters). Note that no matter how you interpret the theme, the clearer the entry shows the how you had incorporated it and can do so with minimum or no description necessary, the better.
Have fun drawing and as always ... creativity is a plus. Keep in mind that interesting and unique ideas are your friends. ^____^
Looking forward to seeing some great entries to end the nearly 10 years of running monthly contests.
*** Contest start and end dates:
Start Date: December 6th, 2011
End Date: December 26th, 2011 (ie. Note that December 26th is the last day to submit for this contest and NOT December 31st, so entries should be submitted before the end of December 26th)
*** Prizes (YAY!!!) :1st Place Prize:$30 paid through paypalOR$30 gift certificate to shop in ebay

OR 2400 DA points OR A copy of the non-profit MUGENO artbook

*** But WAIT!! , I think Mr. PR wants to continue his duties.
So let's let it do what it needs to do (if you don't know what Mr. PR does or is, please read below description) Description of Mr. PR
Just a quick recap of Mr. PseudoRandom (let's call him Mr. PR for short). Mr. PR is going to help me with a very important task that I think will be of interest to everyone reading.
What Mr. PR will do is that at the end of the contest, he will choose 3 numbers randomly and at least 3 participants of the contest (excluding the winners and honorary mentions (if any)) will get a chance to win 400 DA points.
So how does this work you ask? Well, of course since it came from my wacky mind, the whole thing is pretty wacky ... haha, but there is logic to this madness (at least I hope). So here is how this whole system works:
1) When a person submits a piece of artwork to this contest, they would send me a note when they have posted their entry on DA (ie. see submission instructions below). So using this note, I will take the hour and minutes of the time that the note was sent and use that as the person's "lucky" number. So say the person sends me the note at "7:31:57 PM" then his/her lucky number is a combination of the hour and minutes (ie. 7 is the hour and 31 is the minutes, so the lucky number is 731 , and if the time is say "11:43:50 AM" the lucky number will be 1143 .... etc )
2) At the end of the contest, Mr. PR will do his job and start selecting random numbers (3 in total). Now Mr. PR is very persistent and therefore he will continue to choose random numbers until all three numbers chosen matches with some participant's lucky number. These participants that have the lucky numbers that were chosen will each get 400 DA points. (see below for special cases/exceptions)*** Special cases/Exceptions:
- In the case that there is equal to or less than 3 participants left after choosing the winners and honorary mentions (if any), then all 3 (or less) people will automatically get 400 DA points. ^_^ (Poor Mr. PR ... he might lose his job if this happens )
- And the other special case is if two or more people hold the same lucky number. If two or more people hold the same lucky number, then those two or more people will also get 400 DA points. In short, every participant who has a lucky number that matches what Mr. PR picks at the end of the contest will get 400 DA points. ( so the number of random winners selected can be range from a minimum of 3 to a max of ?? <== I guess depends on how lucky you are ^___^ )
*** Full Rules
Below are the rules of the contest (Please read them BEFORE
submitting to the contest) :
- The fanart must be animé (or your OC in animé style if the description of the contest says it's allowed) and should be related to the topic and/or series listed
- The image should NOT be a picture that has been previously posted or shown before.
- No hentai or suggestive images, so please don't submit any of that nature. (If you submit any pictures classified in this category, it will be dis-regarded and will not be entered in the contest.)
- No COPYING. I understand if you maybe use a picture of the subject to be drawn and gather information (ie. clothing, drawing style ... etc) so that the picture that YOU draw will have the necessary recognizable features of that particular subject, BUT directly tracing, or just directly copying of a picture from a magazine or person does not constitute valid fanart for this contest (or any contest for that matter, so don't submit copied art because it will just be dis-regarded!)
- To be fair, only one entry per person please.
- Artwork submitted after the last day is not accepted
- By submitting artwork for this contest, you are giving me permission to display your artwork on this site and on my "Animé Deviation" website.(Don't worry, proper credit will be given to you. I'm not stealing your picture, just putting it on display)
- Winners will be picked by my sisters and I from the eligible entries.
- The winners of the contest will be posted no later than 1 week after the last day of the contest
- Winners will receive a note stating that he/she has won.
By submitting a picture to this contest, it means that you have read the above rules and agree to abide to them.How to Submit
All that needs to be done to submit is to post up your picture, and send me a note with the link to your picture. I will respond saying that the picture has been accepted and will then display a thumbnail of the picture here.Thanks for reading all the rules and getting up to here. Please keep in mind that the objective of this contest is not just to win (ie. although winning is nice if I don't say so myself ), but to have fun drawing interesting and imaginative artwork. So I hope everyone participating will enjoy drawing the artwork and have lots of fun.
