Was tossing around ideas regarding contests and art. A lot of contests get skewed with prizes and such. Sometimes people just like doing things for fun..a few sites have been made for such things, but they tend to get messed up over time.
Well, regardless, I decided to set something simple up for FUN for those who want to do something for FUN and see what people come up with.
Here is the deal: I will give a character and a theme, and whomever wants to participate will have a one month period to create and submit artwork for entry. Upon the one month mark, Myself and selected judges will peruse the entries to come up with a first, second, and third place winner. These winners will have their entries featured here as well as their home galleries. This is not a Deviantart only contest.
I would encourage people to participate for FUN and perhaps as a chance to do something to try and improve your own artwork in some way, perhaps by trying something you have not before.
The character is Leigh, and references can be found for her as follows: [link][link][link][link][link][link][link][link][link][link]
The THEME is 'transportation'. This means the theme of the illustration and background must be an interpretation of 'transportation' of some sort, but that interpretation of it is up to you, so long as it works. No pornography for this
More than one entry can be submitted, so long as they are in by the deadline. That deadline is February 18th, 2007. Judgement will be made within a week afterwards, allowing time for us to gather entries and make proper judgement.
I encourage you to make an entry and have fun with it. It is a chance to jsut have fun with a competition that can remain friendly.
If this goes well and garners suitable entries, it may evolve into something else.
Completed entries can be linked in a note to me here, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you email an entry, please do NOT send files over 500k as ttachments. If they are of that size or larger please load them to a server and send me the link to the image(s).
This begins now, so again I encourage you to give it a go and have some fun ^^
