NEAT'S IDEA CONTEST~*~*~ [WINNERS ANNOUNCED YAYYYYY]
«: March 04, 2011, 05:07:49 PM»












WINNERS!

I LOVED all of the entries to this contest. I really did!
There were so many neat ideas. I really love to see creativity in others and
seeing these entries really made my day.

However there can only be THREE winners, and they're all chosen!!


FIRST PRIZE:

The winner will receive a reference and a portrait of their character!

This prize goes to....
Teaf: A young, fun-loving girl with way too much time on her hands!
She is an anthropomorphic LILAC FLOWER, which is just TOOOO cool!
She fits ALL the criteria of cute, unique and different, so I feel she was perfect for the title of first prize.
Here's her description, as submitted by Tamar. :3
Quote
Teaf: A young, fun-loving girl with way too much time on her hands!

Name: Teaf
Age: 18
Sex: Female
Markings: Vine like features coiled around arms, legs, and neck. White Skin
Species: Anthro Lilac Flower
Clothing: Long dress made to match the attributes of a lilac flower, light purple and very fragile.

Bio: Throughout her life, even as a child, Teaf has been very spontaneous. She's acted as if she were six or seven throughout most of her life, although she is highly intelligent and much more mature than one would originally think. She grew up an orphan, not knowing anything about her parents, but that didn't bring her down! The lilac girl grew up creating clothes for herself, clinging rather tightly onto her favorite dress made to look like a lilac flower. She enjoyed being around her friends, considering them her own family. She's normally very happy, and never easily put down.


SECOND PRIZE:

The winner will receive a portrait of their character!

The prize goes to...
Ganesa: The shy elephant that works at a pancake house. Shes bland at
 first look, but very interesting and artistic once you get to know her.
She is an anthropomorphic ELEPHANT and she works in a pancake house. Goddammit that's cute!

Here is the description as written by Burche.

Ganesa: The shy elephant that works at a pancake house. Shes bland at
 first look, but very interesting and artistic once you get to know her.

 Name: Ganesa (means goddess of wisdom.)

 Age: 23

 Sex: Female

 Colors: Gray skin.
 
 Markings: Interesting lighter grey eye markings, On the inside of her
 ears are pink.

 Species: Elephant (Anthro bro)

 Clothing: Ganesa usually wears cute sundresses, and other retro/hipster
 clothing. She likes to wear comfortable shoes. (Flats and boat shoes)
 She doesn't like flashy clothing.. she is more of a conservative person.

 Hair style: Blonde. Something a little sceneish but.. a little more
 classy? Not like she cut her hair with her eyes closed.

 Piercings: Hip piercings. small Ear Gages.

 Tattoos : A Japanese Cherry Blossom branch on the right side of her
 waist, going up ending right before her breast.

 Appendages: Ears like an elephant, not as big, and a small elephant
 nose.

 Backstory : She was that girl that no one really noticed. Pretty, but
 shy. She always kept a book nearby and her sketch book, always wanting
 to read as much as possible and make beauty. She moved out the day she
 turned 18, never looking back. She was her own person, and thats the way
 she liked it. She worked at a pancake house, wanting to escape it and
 become the artist she always wanted to be.



THIRD PRIZE:

The winner will receive a bunch of doodles on a doodle sheet of their character!

This prize goes to....
Arcana: a nomadic, bubbly, sweet little mouse who loves to do ‘gymnastics’ (Though she couldn’t tell you the name of a single move.) and belly-dancing, while also enjoying the constant company of somebody-or-other and probably nibbling on a sweet or piece of fruit.

While gymnasts and bellydancers are usually considered 'sexy,' the naivety and innocence brought forth by the way this character is described just made me wanna pinch her cheeks. Definitely fun!

Here is the description as written by Primal:

Congratulations to everyone who won!
And thank you very much for those of you who entered.
I was very happy to have this contest. It was honestly a lot of fun, and I hope you had fun too!

















HI GUYS.

This is a really different idea for a contest, but it seems like a great idea.

I have been wanting to design a character that I KNOW will be used,
but I only ever use Neat! So that won't work!

What I want you guys to do
is to shoot me an idea of a character
you've been wanting to create.
That's it!
If I like your idea enough, we'll flesh it out together and you'll be all set!

NOTE: I do NOT need ANY visual reference of your character idea!




There will be THREE PLACES.

1st place will get a flat colored reference of their character, with some other little doodles, and a portrait from me.
2nd place will get a portrait from me.
3rd place will get a couple quick doodles of their idea. Like a concept sheet!




There are only a couple requirements for your idea.

I'm looking for CUTE characters. Fluffy, bubbly, cute!
AND
I'm looking for UNIQUE characters. Nothing too common! Possums, sea cucumbers, cacti, anything goes!
AND
I'm looking for ALL KINDS of ideas. Male, female, feral, anthro, human!

I AM LOOKING FOR A COMBINATION OF ALL THREE OF THESE THINGS
I like badass characters and all, but I'm hoping for something a bit cuter this time around!

It's basically fair game! You can also submit multiple entries, but no more than THREE entries!

(Also my art is located AT THIS FANTASTIC LINK RIGHT HERE in case you need an example)




Make sure to include THESE things, if applicable!
Name, age, colors, markings, species, clothing, hair style, piercings, tattoos, appendages, biography... etc!

Here's a quick guideline:
Make sure to have a quick summary of your character at the top. Like a tagline.
For example:
Neat: Your friendly, homeless, psychic fainting goat, in the alley-way van!
Then, describe your character in depth!

Make sure to give me a backstory.


SOMETHING YOU DO NOT DO:
Quote
"So-and-so has no parents because they died in a car crash
and is a loner and nobody likes them and blahblah
and they do not remember their past."

I see way too much of this, and I grow VERY tired of it, VERY fast.


SOMETHING YOU CAN DO:
Quote
"So-and-so's mom works at a starbucks and dad works construction.
They had a brother but their brother eloped with their fiance to china
and hasn't seen them since. So-and-so....."
that would be okay.




All entries are due by the 15th of April!




Otherwise... ANYTHING GOES! Be creative!

Whisper Neat saying you'll enter, and send entries here over FAZ!
