Hey guys, how are you doing on this fine day? Hopefully you’re doing spectacular! If not, something will come along to cheer you up, I just know it! Anyways, I need to get down to business with you on a few things. First and foremost, sorry about not posting up anything, I’ve been busy assisting my friend run a Forum on Fanfiction. I’ve also had an argument with someone, and now I’m under the belief that we’re no longer friends.
Secondly, I want to take this time to announce a contest that I’m doing! Now, most of you are probably wondering what it would be about, so let me go ahead and say that it is an illustration contest! At the moment, I’m working on a story (after god knows how long it’s taken me to get back into writing), and wish for your help! I want this story to be a part of the artist community, so I’d like to take this time to say that I want you, the artists of deviantART, to be my illustrators! Each time I post up a new chapter of my story, I will rely on each of you to read through it, and create an illustration based upon the text. Now, it’s a fan fiction that I’ve taken plenty of time to plan (especially to play back through all the games in the series), and now I’m ready to take the next big step into creating this wonderful story! The story will be a part of a big project called Project: Evolution. I will contribute some art of my own, as well as each and every chapter of the story, and at the end of it, it will be a giant Portfolio consisting of all of your artwork! This Portfolio will be shared with the world, and you! However, I will have to say that not all of you will be winners in this. I will lay down the rules that you will have to follow, as well as the prizes you can win:
- You have to read through each chapter, and pick out a moment from that said chapter that catches your eye. YOU MUST read through the ENTIRE chapter, no excuses. Whatever scene and/or moment catches your eye in the text, illustrate it with the main characters. You may catch my eye a little more if you add color, shading, and detail to the illustration.
- You can only win the First Prize once. I want to make it fair for the rest of the community.
- Send me a Note linking the illustration to your Sta.sh, as I don’t want it in your Gallery. After the judging ends, you can post your art on your Gallery, and keep it there.
- I will only take in a limited amount of art for judging, and that will vary on how long, or short, the chapter is (Priority, or Filler)
- With Priority Chapters, I can take in nearly 30-40 Illustrations for judging, depending on whether or not I get that amount, now I know I’m not too popular on DA, but I know that I want to try my hardest to get you guys to participate.
- With Filler Chapters, I will only take in 15 Illustrations for judging.
Not only will I be judging them alone, but my top three will be judged by the community as a whole.
Now, there’s a prize for the top three illustrators in each chapter.
First Prize: 1000 DeviantART Points, and a Free Gift AND Game from Steam, courtesy of yours truly. The game will be of your choosing, and the Gift/Add-on will be of your free choosing.
Second Prize: 500 DeviantART Points, and a Free Gift/Game from Steam, courtesy of yours truly. The game will be beneath $20, no exceptions.
Third Prize: 250 DeviantART Points, and a Free Gift from Steam, courtesy of yours truly. I will pay for an add-on for one of your games.
Now, if you don’t have a Steam Account, I can make an exception, and give you additional points, depending on what Prize you obtain.
First: Additional 2000 Points.
Second: Additional 750 Points.
Third: Additional 500 Points.
Good luck to you artists, and I will post a journal when the first chapter is up!
