Entries Closed, Winners Announced!
«: May 06, 2010, 05:30:22 PM»
Over

And it was tough as fuck but it has been judged. It was ridiculously tough, took days of discussion and opinions, taking this and that into consideration but... It's done! First, all the entries:



1. Zanadria http://zanadria.deviantart.com/
2. Aselaine
3. Jeeves
4. Alp
5. Pocket Spots
6. Akarui http://akarui-kurai.deviantart.com/
7. Aqua Dark  http://hotahmai.deviantart.com/
8. Twisted Emotions
9. Twigg http://other.deviantart.com/gallery/
10. Kyla
11. Rx http://abbyxo.deviantart.com/
12. Aries http://darktoki.deviantart.com/
13. MT
14. Shaunery http://shaunery.deviantart.com/
15. Ukai http://ukai.deviantart.com/

Please everyone let me know your gallery URLs so I can link you!

You can't imagine how hard it was to judge this. I know I said the life Tusker was the top prize for 20+ entries but these were just so amazing there was no way that I couldn't give it away. I've adjusted the prize pool to 6 prizes, 3 placings and 3 runners up as follows.

First Prize - Tusker for Life: Aries

Second Prize - Option Toytle or Classics/Butters for Life: MT

Third Prize - Catten or Rabben for Life: Ukai

First Runner-up - 3 Portrait Spaces: Akarui

Second Runner-up - 2 Portrait Spaces: Zanadria

Third Runner-up - 1 Portrait Space: Alp

6 Places really didn't feel like enough, everyone that submitted a portrait gets a red, yellow or purple rose of their choice. I loved all these portraits so much and have every intention of using every one of them. This portrait contest was so much fun, and totally worth all the time and effort. I hope all the artists involved enjoyed participating.

Obviously the prizes are ordered in terms of resell value, so really this is the order that they are available to choose. I'll try and contact everyone over the next few days.

Again, thank you so much everyone involved.

fucking badass. i'm going to make the list entering/interested so there is no pressure or whatever and people can get an idea of how many people might be doing this. a few people have said they'll go for it when they're sure the tusker is up for grabs.

k. well i'm super stoked at the attention already for this contest, it's only been a couple of days and i'm like a 3rd of the way to the max prize pool which is really what i'm going for here.

someone asked me if vanae's ears are floppy like in the picture, and like most of it here i'm saying i don't care. that was just HV's interpretation was and i really have no preference either way, whatever makes you happy and works best for you with your style of whatever you want.

i've almost made entry due date 1st of july, because it's easy to remember, so it's ages away. i'll do the judging for a few days and then let you guys know who is win.

entering !

I would love to enter! Your character is so orignial which is amazing. Though I have a few questions though.

1. What rating would you like the portrait to be? Since we all hang out in different areas I'd like to make sure the portraits would be up to the most usage!

and

2. Does your character have any quirks or anything that might be seen in the portraits? Such as drinking, smoking, making faces, or is she simply just looking all out sexy no matter what? hehe.

I really don't mind what rating you want to do, obviously I'm going to be recieving a variety of portraits. I plan to upload most/all of them, I can't imagine that there will be one that I won't like. I guess what you're really asking is if mature/nipples is okay, and the answer is yes totally ok. I'd love it!

Jane's a total dame, so drinking and smoking is definitely a good idea for props/actions as long as it's kept within the themes. Brandy balloons, martinis, cigarettes on long holders or maybe even a chinese fan?

Thanks for the compliments, and thanks to everyone thats entering/interested so far. This looks like it will get to 20 or more easily.

Holy sowe! Count me in :D

Offline Moors

Never entered a contest before and i'm not all to experienced with ports but to hell with it. Love the character design, love 50's things and fancy a challenge.

Count me in!

Offline jane

Offline Zanadria

Count me in. Already started on it and what not >>

Offline Novadog

I'm all for it :D MAN I WANT THOSE LIFE BUTTERS xD count me in

Offline Jeeves

I'll enter, too! Curious, though, on how you feel about an animated port, or would you prefer not to see them?

Offline jane

~holy shit~ this is going off! you guys are all amazing, and the list has been updated.

Jeeves, I am not remotely opposed to animated portraits. I just didn't mention it because it strikes me as being a colossal amount of effort, but if you think you can pull it off you should definitely go for it.
