There will also be some mini prizes awarded for the following: Best Sketch, Best CG, Best Port. The prizes themselves will be determined at the time of judging, but will most likely include a one-month subscription digo from the Spring Sale EVERYTHING package.

Due Dates
  • Accepting Participants: March 05, 2008 - March 10, 2008 CLOSED.
  • Artwork Due By: April 11th, 2008 - May extend if necessary.
(PM Entries to me here, or email them to [email protected] - Please send FINAL ENTRIES ONLY. For questions, PM me here, catch me in game, or email me at [email protected])

Rules
  • All artwork submitted will be kept by me. By joining the contest you agree to this. When signing up, you agree to this. Please phrase a sentence agreeing to this term, when signing up, or you will not be added to the entry list. If you do not want to give the work, then do not enter.

    Why? All of the characters in this contest are my original characters, some of whom I have had for several years. I will not be getting rid of them, ever. I put a lot of thought, as many of us do, into my character designs, and I do not want to see work that was originally meant to be of them being used as someone else. Even with edits, some of them have weirdly specific remaps for ports.
  • You may submit as many entries as you like, but you are only be allowed to place one time. If you win one of the three top pizes, you will not receive an Honorable Mention prize.  If you do not win one of the three top prizes, you will be awarded one of the prizes reserved for Honorable Mentions.
  • All work submitted under your name alone must be your own work.
  • Collaboration entries will be accepted, but all who work on the piece must consent to the entry of the work. And, it will be their job to decide where the prize will go, if they were to win. Collab at your own risk.
  • If you sign up, and have to drop out for any reason, please let me know. I will be keeping in touch with entrants via PM - this should not be a problem.
  • All entries will be judged by me. If I am stuck in a decision (this is likely, I am very indecisive) I will more than likely be asking Kiwi or Narnia for their opinions.
  • The list of entrants and their entry work will be kept private, so as not to discourage others from trying out. I will post the number of participants, without names.
  • After the contest has been ended, the winning entries will be posted for display. Please do not upload entries into a gallery prior to the end of the contest. I would like for all people to feel they have an equal chance.
  • The character you choose to draw will not influence your placing in the prizes. There is a wide variety of characters, so that everyone has their selection based on their own styles and preferences. Choose whichever one you like best.
  • These rules are able to be changed and updated at any time, and notification will be posted if so.

Categories
  • Portrait Art: Remappable and non-Remappable portrait art will be accepted. Some characters may have a specific requirement for this, and it will be indicated if this is the case.
  • Character Art: Character art of all types will be accepted. Sketches, CG, Real Media, whatever is your fortè.

Characters and Refs
Please ask if you need more reference or information. F=Female - N=Neutral - M=Male. Not all chars are expected to receive entries, and are mainly here to provide options. All are dearly loved. More chars and refs can be added upon request.

  • FZodiac - Canine (Hyena/Fennec Fox) - Reference - Remap Reference - Collar (Bone Tag Remaps to Badge)
    Color Code: t-(9<:;8<;2#&#
    Personality: Zodiac is me, essentially. If you know me, it should be obvious to you. x3 Buuuut I guess I could describe her as.. Weird? Friendly and hostile at the same time. In fact, polar opposites of any character trait at the same time. Does this mean crazy? Also, smokin the reefer , mang. I have more images that portray personality upon request.

  • FRadium - Feline - Reference - Reference 2
    Color Code: t#1?=?*3(3;#%# (I love her color code to death. >_>)
    Personality: Very calm and cool. She runs an underground clothing shop, and is from a future world. She comes from tha same time as Pandemonium, if that helps any of you. ;) Shes often quiet, and a bit cynical.

  • FLollipop Rodent (Sugar Glider) - Reference
    Color Code: t84C6C:;;42###
    Personality: Cutesy tiny girly. She is soft spoken and just all around a cute little sugar glider who is easily scares and would never hurt anyone. (Polar opposite of myself)

  • FAstral Unknown Species (Somewhat feline-looking) - Remap Reference - Reference - Wears flowy robe-like clothing and sashes.
    Color Code: t%5J060>3;;#%#
    Personality: Shes some type of fae fairy mystical thingy. So, she is very playful and mischievous. She can also be very calm and serene, at times. Elegance and grace are always a part of her actions.

  • FVagabond - Peryton (Deer Mythical Creature) - Remap Reference - Reference
    Color Code: t8$K(8<=<@<#$#
    Personality: As a Peryton, she can have many kinds of personalities. Perytons may only kill one human, and (in my story for this, continuing beyond mythology) will often take on personality trais from the human they ate, but may then after carry out a peaceful life. Vagabond happened to have killed and taken on the traits of a gypsie. Vaga is a gypsie, witty and quick on her feet.

  • FComa - Feline (Siamese Cat) - Reference
    Color Code: t8:L5H<;==<#%#
    Personality: Coma is blind in both eyes. She is very introverted, and quiet. Shes gentle, and often meditates. When she meditates, she sometimes goes into a state of astral projection, in which normal eye sight is not needed, and she is able to cross between planes via sight of her third eye. I would suggest googling this interesting concept. Anyways, shes very peaceful and serene.

  • FPixel - Rodent (Rat) - Reference
    Color Code: t82M=?;3<<3%##
    Personality: Silly, playful, but sometimes quiet. She likes being outside, or in a tea house. She likes puzzles, and things that keep her busy for extended amounts of time.

  • FGlow - Feline - Reference - Reference 2
    Color Code: t#3?'?**2;;%%#
    Personality: Glow is a drug dealer and a bar tender. Shes sociable, and knows how to work with other people's personalities. Shes not too quick to trust many people, but is willing to give anyone their chance to become part of her inner circle of friends. She used to live in an urban area, but now resides in the Bar/Club she tends at, which is very huge and like a world of its own. She likes to rave, dance, drink, and smoke.

  • NHysteria - Creature of Wonderland - Remap Ref - Sketch Reference
    Color Code: t#8K9J;<<<;#%#
    Personality: As a creature from wonderland.. She is very quirky and weird. Insaaaaane. Unpredictable. She is not even really a she. She is genderless, but feminine i appearance in most ways os I just say she. If you want to draw boobs I am okay with this, its just something stylistic for people. Normally, she is pretty flat chested though. Shes kooky. >_>

  • FStereo - Feline (Bengal Cat) - Reference
    Color Code: t:6>*I>7/;;#%#
    Personality: The tough but girly chick. Very urban lifestyle. Hangin out on the streets listening to music with her friends, maybe even an interest in breakdancing.

  • FHaunt - Feline (Lynx/Caracal) - Twin to Gloom - Reference - Remap Reference
    Color Code: t%9H*J;/7;;#%#
    Personality: Haunt is very confidant and outgoing. Her brother and her both travel between the world of the dead and the world of the living. She is usually happy, and very defensive of her brother. She can be very modest.

  • MGloom Feline (Lynx/Caracal) - Twin to Haunt - Reference - More Reference (By Porno)
    Color Code: t%9H*J=/7=;$%#
    Personality: Gloom and Haunt share a lot of similar personality traits. He is also confidant and outgoing, and defensive of his sister. On top of that, he is somewhat egotistical and sometimes has the "Gods Gift To Earth" thing going on.

  • FNox - Unknown Species (Canine-ish) - Wings optional, always black - Reference Sheet - Helpful Markings Ref - More Ref - Helpful Eyes Ref - Remap Ref Coming Soon
    Color Code: t8%K9$;;:;##&#
    Personality: Nox's personality can be kind of hard to describe. She can be very moody and her moods change without notice. She can be happy, but she is more often quiet and cynical. She is a loner, having lost her entire family (and twin bother.. I don't have a thing or making twin chars. >:O) in a fire when she was a child. I have a lot of stories written for her, somewhere. Umm.. She goes through phases when you would think she is completely insane, but they don't last for too long. They are always unexpected.

  • FRandom - Canine - Reference - Remap Ref
    Color Code: t88$96+;;;?#&#
    Personality: Random is an extreme introvert. She is a heroin addict who works in a thrift store. She doesn't trust anyone (except maybe Zodiac) and she is shy as all freaking hell. She has a lot of her own inner demons she deals with, but if you looked at her from the outside you would never really know it. She is usually expressionless, and there is not much pizazz in anything she does. She may seem boring, but can be very interesting if you really know her.
