Author Topic: Aeva's Art Contest - $75/75GD First prize! (OVER! Winners announced!)  (Read 11713 times)

Offline Minders

Okay, I've made my decision.

First off, though, I want to give a huge, huge THANK YOU to everyone who entered. I was amazed by the turn-out of this contest, and all of the entries I received are absolutely beautiful. I cannot even begin to tell you guys how hard it was to choose x.x But I finally did. Here are the winners, in reverse order.

Fifth place: Trex

I love this @[email protected] It just screams sexy.
Prize: Two port spaces

Fourth place: Gamer

Fluffy! I love the detailing on the dress, and the background is nifty, too! I'm lame, though, it took me a little while to figure out what it was xD
Prize: Four port spaces

Third place: Sesruc

Sparkly dress is sparkly. LOVE that tail ;; And the hair! <3 Awesome job with the jewelry, too.
Prize: $25 or 25GD

Second place: Tooth

This took my breath away when I first saw it. The pose, those eyes... This is just amazing.
Prize: $50 or 50GD

First place: Hathor

Hathor is absolutely insane. XD I nearly keeled over when I saw this. When I started this whole thing, it never occurred to me that someone might try and do ALL the outfits, but she did, and the result is one fantastic picture @[email protected] Congrats!
Prize: $75 or 75GD

Winners need to send me an email/PM as soon as possible telling me where they want their prizes sent (and for the top three, whether they want GD or PayPal). The port spaces will be bought directly from the Digo Market and distributed as requested :3

As per the rules that you agreed to, remember that even if you didn't win, the artwork is mine to keep and cannot be modified and resold.

What I need from everyone now, winners included, is a detailed description and/or reference of one character so I can do some pictures for y'all for entering :> Emailing them to me would be best, but you can also send me a PM, too. I probably won't do them in any particular order, but I do hope to have all of them done within a month (there's a lot of you!).

Thank you again everyone for entering my contest, I hope it was as enjoyable for you all as it was for me. I'll see about hosting another one in the future :3

-----------

Been thinking about doing this for a while, but I needed to make sure I actually had the funds for prizes before going through with anything xD Onto the good stuff!

ABOUT
When I commission people for art of Aeva, most of the time I go with this outfit, or her usual outfit. However, she has a variety of outfits, and I'd like to have some portraits or other art that I can use with those other outfits, too.

CATEGORIES
Portraits: These can be remappable or nonremappable. See specifics for remap stuff below.
Character Art: Sketches, traditional media, digital media, go crazy. Whatever works for you :3

PRIZES (more may be added depending on participation)
First Place: $75 or 75GD
Second Place: $50 or 50GD
Third Place: $25 or 25GD
Fourth Place: Four port spaces.
Fifth Place: Two port spaces.
For everyone who enters: a detailed-color headshot/bust CG picture of one of your characters.

DUE DATE
All entries need to be received by 10pm PST on August 15, 2008. I have no intentions of extending the deadline, though if you really need an extra day or so, I'll consider it. There will be no closing date for entrants.

RULES
1. All artwork will be kept by me. You cannot modify and resell any submissions. If you have a problem with this, don't enter. When you enter, please say something along the line of "I agree to the terms," to make sure this is clear.
2. You may enter as many times as you wish, but you can only place once.
3. Collabs are okay, but you must decide how the prize is to be split between you and your partner.
4. Terms are subject to change and you will be notified of any and all changes.
5. I plan on posting entries here as I receive them, but if you prefer for it not to be shown, let me know that you do not want your entry posted here prior to the end of the contest.
6. Breaking this one down: Artwork must be your own, original work. If your entry is found to be traced or whatnot, you will be disqualified.

BASIC REFERENCES
Ref sheet (Nudity warning!) - http://www.whiskey-kitty.com/artwork/aeva-ref.png
Others:
By Blaze Husky
By me
By X
By Nocturia
By Turq
By Sekhmet
By Halothane
By Nox
By Adeana
The ones by Blaze Husky and Sekhmet are the most accurate. Aeva's a Maine Coon, so she's fluffy. There's a bit more fur to her tail than either of those pictures show, though; see Turq's piece for a better size estimate.
Ports do NOT need to display all that fluff. Even I don't usually include it in my own ports of her XD
Another note: Aeva is older, she'll be 30 in December. Maybe something to keep in mind :>

THE OUTFITS
Aeva's new website layout features a frame, so the descriptions to the text links don't quite work anymore xD So go to her website, click on the outfits page, and click the appropriate title to get to the description. Sorry for any inconvenience!

I'll put you down as a maybe, then :> And, I wasn't originally planning on posting the entries, though now I'm not so sure, since I'm sure there's at least a few people who feel that way, and totally understandable. I'll have a set decision on that and post it within the next day or so.

Thanks to everyone who's entered so far! After some consideration, I've dropped the whole "DO NOT POST" thing, so no need to worry about that. All final entries, including FOX files, will still need to be emailed to me, though :>
