Contest? I think yes (Closed, judging in process)

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 23, 2013, 3:52 PM



:new:Update 02/August: I hit 7000 watchers! As a mini-celebration, I've upgraded the prizes for 2nd and 3rd prize a bit. :) Thanks for being awesome, guys! <3


HEY DO YOU LIKE CONTESTS AND WINNING PRIZES? SO DO I. LET'S DO A CONTEST.

The Prompt

As you might have inferred from the first line in this journal, I'm actually not very good at writing introductions to these things, so I guess I'll just jump right into it or something, idk. :shrug: 

The prompt for this contest is draw any of my characters at a different age than what they normally appear as. 

So what does this entail? Well, you can draw an adult the way you think they'd look as a child, or you could draw a kid as a grown-ass adult-- hell, you can even draw what you think my characters would look like if they belonged in a retirement center! Bonus points if you come up with a new outfit for them, as well! It's really all up to you.




Rules

A contest without rules isn't much of a contest, now is it? Here are some things you should keep in mind:

:bulletred: This goes without saying, but your entry should follow the prompt. Even if you submit the nicest drawing of Bill Clinton you've ever drawn in your life, I won't accept it as an entry because Bill Clinton is an actual person and doesn't fit within the parameters of my prompt.

:bulletred: There should be a noticeable difference in age between the character's stock design and the design in your entry. If you draw a 22-year-old character as a 23-year-old, it will be difficult to tell if anything has changed.

:bulletred: Please no NSFW entries! dA has really strict rules about nudity/sexual themes and children, even if they have been aged up. I don't want you guys to get into trouble.

:bulletred: Please submit your entry as a deviation in a note or in the comments of this journal. 

:bulletred: Your entry must be new and submitted AFTER this journal is submitted. Time-traveling is cheating and will be disqualified. Also, please don't reuse an old deviation.

:bulletred: You may enter up to two times if you wish, but only one of those entries will be able to win.

:bulletred: Literature submissions will not be admitted. I realize that literature is a valid art form and that it takes a lot of skill to be able to write a decent piece of literature, but I feel that it would be very difficult to judge a literature submission against a more visual submission. 

:bulletred: Please don't bribe the judges!

:bulletred: You may include as many characters as you'd like in your entry.

:bulletred: If you want to include your OCs in your entry, you're more than welcome to do so! :)

:bulletred: If I've already drawn a character as a different age somewhere in my gallery, you can draw that character as well, but try to come up with a different design.

Deadline

Entries are due by Friday, August 23, 11:59 Pacific Time.

Judging

Normally when I do judging, I just let anyone who wants to vote for their favorite entries, but that allows for a lot that can go wrong. (Miscounted votes, people rallying their watchers to vote for them, etc) To avoid that, I'll be looking for a couple of people who are willing to be judges for this contest. 

I won't be able to offer requests due to time constraints, but I'm willing to pay 200 :points: for anyone who is able and willing to judge. This will be done after the judging process has ended. :)

If you would like to judge, please be sure that you will be able and willing to vote in a non-biased manner anywhere between the times of August 24th to August 27th. 

Judges will not be able to submit entries to the contest.

Judging will be comprised of selecting a handful of favorite entries and rating them on a scale of 1-10.

I will take up to TWO judges, listed below.


Misc.

I think that about covers it! If you've got any questions, please feel free to shoot them my way. ;) (Wink)

Quick question: are you going to be judging the entries along with the other judges or is it going to just be the two judges judging?
