Hi,

      Welcome to March's fanart contest:

Please read through all the rules before submitting



*** Subject for this month is:


          The greener green



*** Description:

Saint Patty's day is just around the corner and soon you'll see all them Leprechauns running around ... hehe.   Anyhow, on that day, the color green represents good luck.  

So while we're on the topic of green, I thought it would be an interesting topic for this month's contest.  So this month's fanart contest focuses on the color green.  You can draw a fanart of an animé series (or your OC) as long as it involves the color green and/or anything that is green.  :)  

Anyhow, I think that's it.  Have fun drawing and as always ... creativity is a plus (and of course, think "Green" :D ).  :)  





*** Contest start and end dates:

    Start Date: March 2nd, 2009

    End Date:  March 31st, 2009  (ie. March 31st is the last day to submit, so any entry that is submitted before April 1st is accepted)




*** Prizes (YAY!!!) :

1st Place Prize (one (1) of the below choices):

$30 paid through paypal


OR


$30 gift certificate to shop in ebay
(Note that since ebay doesn't have a $30 gift certificate option, you will receive one $25 and one $5 gift certificate totaling $30) If you are thinking of selecting this option, please read the ebay terms outlining the use as ebay gift certificates can only be used if you have a valid paypal account.



OR


A one year subscription to DeviantArt.


OR


some other gift certificate service (ie. like amazon ...etc) in which the gift certificate can be emailed and can handle $30 increments. (very flexible in this matter.  If you're unsure if it works or not, drop me a quick note and I'll be glad to look into it and let you know)




2nd Place Prize (one (1) of the below choices):

$10 paid through paypal


OR


$10 gift certificate to shop in ebay
If you are thinking of selecting this option, please read the ebay terms outlining the use as ebay gift certificates can only be used if you have a valid paypal account.



OR


3 month DeviantArt subscription


OR


some other gift certificate service (ie. like amazon ...etc) in which the gift certificate can be emailed and can handle $10 increments. (very flexible in this matter.  If you're unsure if it works or not, drop me a quick note and I'll be glad to look into it and let you know)


Also note that ebay gift certificates are only redeemable in ebay. If you have any questions about ebay gift certificates, please visit the ebay site




*** 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) :D  


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 first and second place winners) will get a chance to win a 1 month DA subscription.

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 a 1 month DA sub. (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 1st and 2nd place winners, then all 3 people will automatically get 1 month DA subs.  ^_^  (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 1 month DA subs.  In short, every participant who has a lucky number that matches what Mr. PR picks at the end of the contest will get a 1 month DA sub.  :w00t: ( so the number of 1 month subs given out 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) :


  1. The fanart must be animé and should be related to the topic/series listed
  2. The image should NOT be a picture that has been previously posted or shown before.
  3. 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.)
  4. 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!)
  5. To be fair, only one entry per person please.
  6. Artwork submitted after the last day is not accepted
  7. 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)
  8. Winners will be picked by my sisters and I from the eligible entries.
  9. The winners of the contest will be posted no later than 1 week after the last day of the contest
  10. 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 in my journal: keiichi93.deviantart.com/journ…

Thanks for reading all the rules and getting up to here.  :D  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 ;p ), but to have fun drawing interesting and imaginative artwork.  So I hope everyone participating will enjoy drawing the artwork and have lots of fun.

Is it okay to just draw my own OC from my head?? Or does it have to be an OC from a specific anime??

Does our OC have to be anime-based, too? I'm not too great at anime art...
Reply
:iconkeiichi93:
keiichi93 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2009
Well, it doesn't have to be specifically animé based, but should have at least a warm cozy animé type feeling to it? ;p

(Yeah, I know ... that didn't really answer the question :O_o:.. but as long as it's not way off course, it should be accepted) :)

oh btw does the limit of how many character counts?
it can be ANY genre of fanart right?? @v@
Reply
:iconkeiichi93:
keiichi93 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2009
Thanks. There's no limit on how many characters you can draw other than the amount of space you have to fit all of those characters in. ;p

.. but if your question was asking if drawing more characters increases your chances of winning ... then it all depends on how well the characters are integrated with each other to form a common theme (ie. throwing characters together randomly probably won't help that much in terms of winning)
