PAINT MY OC contest

Fri Jul 13, 2012, 11:57 AM

And the contest is finally open. This is the second contest hosted by us and this time the theme of the contest is about our original characters. This contest is for digital and traditional art only. At the end 6 WINNERS will be selected who'll get a lot of great prizes. For more info read the rest of the article. And please add this journal to your favorites, so more people will be informed about this contest. Thank you.

P.S. At the end we'll randomly select 10 people who faved this journal and they'll get a huge feature in our journal. And one lucky person will even get points (400 :points:). Good luck to all participants.


Prizes


Here's a list of the prizes the winners will get at the end of the contest. There will be 6 WINNERS, that means that there will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each category. We listed the prizes only once, because winners of the first category will get exactly the same prizes as winners of the second category (if it says that winner of 1st place will get 1000 points, then 1st winner of the second category will get 1000 points also). Prizes for each place are listed below. And the prize list may change during the contest if we get more donors. If you want to donate something then scroll down a little and read "Special donors & donating" section. :new: UPDATE (16 August 2012): Read in comments

First place




Third place


Second place




First category


In this category you can draw or paint any of our characters in any way you want and with any style you want. For example, I drew the image on the left with anime style, but that doesn't mean that you have to draw characters only with that style… you can draw even realistic if you prefer to. Really any style you want.

You can find more info about the characters under the drawings, so you can better imagine what to draw. On a few drawings I drew more characters (like this drawing on the left), but you can draw only one if you want. But if you want to draw more characters than just one is fine as well. You can be creative as much as you want… you can even mix more characters together and put them in one piece (drawing/painting) from other drawings which you can find in the folder below.

So, use your imagination as much as you can and create pieces with our original characters. Rules are pretty simple. As you know, this contest is for digital and traditional art, so paint or draw using these mediums. It's also allowed to mix both mediums.

The rest of the rules you can read below under "Rules" section. You can find all the characters in the folder below (click the button). Good luck.


characters

Second category


(you're only allowed to do that with the first lineart because it doesn't have a background), they must be the same as here. You can choose just one lineart to color...which you more prefer.

If you don't want the lineart to look so black you may paint over it or change its color, so it will be less visible. The rest of the rules you can read under "Rules" section.

If you decided to participate in the second category you can download images and PSD files by clicking the button below. Good luck.

These three linearts above belongs to the second category of this contest. Under first category you choose character and you draw it all by yourself, but under second category you'll need to color one of these linearts. First image (left one) as you can see has only a character on it… without background. Well, at this lineart you can use more imagination and paint the background as you want. If you like you can change formats too (from portrait to landscape or square)… but remember, you MUSTN'T crop the character. It must stay whole as you can see it here.

Other two linearts (middle and right) you can just paint any way you want (but linearts must be the same). And you can paint any of these 3 linearts with any color palette you want. These two linearts you MUSTN'T crop or change formats


Judges


Here is the list of judges who will select 10 semi-finalists from each category after the end of the contest. Finally, from those semi-finalists we'll select 6 winning pieces. At the end the winners will be notified and they'll get their prizes. We will update this journal when semi-finalists and finalists are selected. It may take some time for the judges to come to a decision.

Rules


    • If you donate you can participate in the contest also.

    • You may submit more than one entry.

    • You may participate in both categories (note: you may win only in one category).

    • Anyone can participate.

    • Only individuals may enter this contest – no collaborations – to avoid problems with splitting up the prizes.

    Entries will be judged on creativity, overall impact, concept, execution… Images posted after the deadline won't compete in the contest. Under these buttons below you can see contest entries for each category. Good luck to all.


  • Entries must be received by 11:59:59 PM (UTC/GMT) on 21 October, 2012.
  • Entries for this contest must be painted or drawn with digital and/or traditional medium.
  • If you want to paint linearts traditionally, then you can print out the lineart/drawing and then you can finish it with traditional mediums.
  • When you finish the drawing send us a note with a thumb or link to your entry.
  • In artist's comments write that you created your entry for this contest, you can even write which character you drew on the drawing (you even have my permission to add the character's description if you want). If you painted lineart, then add link to the lineart also.
  • On linearts DO NOT remove my signature, because it's still my art and my characters. But you can add your signature on the image if you want.
  • We won't accept art with mature content, nudity, gore…



Special donors & donating


Here below are the icons of special donors who donated 100 or more points for this contest (anyone who donated or will donate 100 or more points, will be mentioned in this section with other special donors. Read below for other things that donors can get.). And if you donate prizes you CAN participate in the contest also.

If you want to donate points (you can donate to the donation poll on our profile page and in our journal on the right side), memberships, commissions, llamas, features… anything, just write a comment in this journal or send us a note and we will add you to the prize list. ALL donors will get journal feature (button bellow), llamas… and if you donate 100 or more points you will even get a watch. All donations are appreciated, even if it's only a few points or a llama. Thank you.  

P.S. When you donate prizes please write for which places you would like to donate. We will have 6 winners, so there will be TWICE 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. So if you would like to donate 50 points, for 1st places, for example, then I will split them in half for both first place winners. So they will get 25 points each (from 50 points) because prizes which I listed above are already split in half, so winners of both categories will get exactly the same prizes that I've written above.

I want to try to paint this watercolors! But water and printed papers don't go together, the ink just gets blurry... I was wondering if it's okay to copy the lines over to a watercolor paper by using the window as a lightboard? Uhm, I'll try to be as accurate as I can... >o>
