Character Art Contest! WINNERS POSTED!
«: February 02, 2009, 04:01:25 PM»
The entries were judged very heavily on accuracy to the character rather than style or skill. Why? Because I'd rather have a modest and accurate representation of my character than a flashy, fancy one that looked only kind of like her!

And the winners aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare...

First Place:
Lyle Grimoire - Entry
This entry was very accurate in -most- areas. The only compromise is that she's wearing shoes, which Asayl is not fond of (as stated on the site). Great work and Thank you, Lyle!
Life Foxen, 1 year Silver Sponsorship (or 50 GD, your choice) & 2 port spaces!

Second Place:
Okepi - Entry
I love the glittery red dress! And adding in the special flower definitely scored some points here.
3 months Silver Sponsorship (or 15 GD, your choice), Catten (expires 2009-12-18) & 1 port space!

Third Place:
Mint - Entry
The chibi diagram made me d'aaaw!
10 GD & 1 port space!

Honorable Mentions:
Crymzon - Entry & Classycat - Entry
5GD each

Big thank you to those who participated (or tried to)! All these pictures will be posted up on her site. I'll be contacting all of you in-game or through PM to set up a trade and get you your prizes.

Alrighty, kiddies, it's time for me to hold my first contest! And what an important contest it is!

You see, my character, Asayl, has long been in a need for a good ref sheet. I would make one myself but what fun is that? Besides, I do all her ports! Some recent IC events have changed the way she looks just a little, so I think it's high time to get a ref sheet. She is the only character I RP with regularly and she has years of history to her, so judging is going to be tough!

But first- What are the prizes?
First Place:
Life Foxen, 1 year Silver Sponsorship (or 50 GD, your choice) & 2 port spaces!
Second Place:
3 months Silver Sponsorship (or 15 GD, your choice), Catten (expires 2009-12-18) & 1 port space!
Third Place:
10 GD & 1 port space!
Honorable Mention:
5GD
Sounds good? I hope so!

So, who is Asayl and what do I need to know?
You can find most of info on her site, which is here: http://www.freewebs.com/asayl/index.htm There's a lot of info there to process, so read carefully! You can also find links to a few pictures there to give you a bit of an idea of what she looks like. A few other pictures in my gallery here.
Of course, there are some things to note.
- Unlike in most of the pictures she's in, her real fur is gray now.
- Her hair was cut not too long ago, so now it's only about rear-length now.
- She has the same general shape as a human, rather than an anthro shape.
- Her tail is like that of a long-haired cat, rather than a short haired or lion-like one.
- She now wears a small, heart-shaped ruby pendant on a thin silver necklace (I don't think I've added that on the site yet).
- If you're ever in doubt about something, feel free to send me a whisper on either Asayl or Runetta Reborn.

How are you going to judge the entries?
Accuracy - How close to Asayl your work is (taking into consideration your artist style, naturally).
Personality - How much life and personality your work conveys.
Care & Effort - How much effort you put into the picture and how well it's done.
Details - How closely you paid attention to her description and added that to your work.
Creativity - How unique your work is.

There are some things I will really be looking for that'll score you some major bonus points. Those are: full body shot (frontal or 3/4 view preferred), diagram or nude shot outlining where her doll parts are, facial expression shots, outfit ideas.

Sounds good! What about contest dates and such?
- The deadline for this contest is March 28th! Winners will be announced March 31st.
- Finished entries can be sent to [email protected] in either png or high quality jpg format. Please refrain from posting your entries on popular art sites like DA or here before the deadline. I want all the entries to a surprise to the contestants! If you need to display somewhere for some reason, use tinypic or photobucket.
- You may enter multiple times if you wish to do so.
- Because you're drawing a character I created, you may not use or sell for any other purpose other than this contest. After your finished work is in my hands, I reserve the right to upload it for linking on my character's site for display purposes. I may or may not make minor changes.

Contestants!

There's been a few questions about a few things that were previously missing off the old character sheet, so it's been replaced with a new, better one here:-*
