Finally, here we are! Welcome to my event
"SHOW YOUR OCs
(and I'll draw some of them!)"
Those of you who've been following me for some time now, know that I love OCs and that I like seeing news ones and discovering new great character designs and that kind of stuff! *3*
I had been thinking about holding this event for some time now and… here we are! ^w^ The whole thing is quite easy: you show me your OCs and then I choose the ones I like the most and draw them!
But before I explain you the rules and the "how to"s of the event, I'd like to spend a few words about the meaning of all this and why I'm doing this:-IMPORTANT: Please read!-
As I said above, I love Original Characters and character design, and you all know I like drawing, otherwise I wouldn't be here, but this is NOT a way to get your characters drawn for free (or at least, not just that). With this event I'd like to give you all the possibility to show your works to other deviants, to share your creations and your fantasy with people that don't know you and that might like what you do! This is a way to spread appreciation and love for other people's work and dedication, so please don't focus on 'getting free artwork', but check out other people's designs and their stories! Support each other and make new friends, watch artists you didn't know, fav and comment works you like!
That's the spirit of this event: sharing your creations and supporting other artists!
Because art is passion and love, and we all need that, right?
To enter this event and get a chance to have a sketch of your OC done by me, all you have to do is:Being one of my Watchers
(or watch me if you're not)!Choose 1 of your Original Characters. ONLY ONE.
Please do not link more than one. I know choosing is not easy, but please choose only 1 OC. I may not consider comments with more OCs. If the character you want to share is in a picture with other OCs, don't worry, just specify which one you're nominating.Share your OC below with a COMMENT to this journal
(no notes, please). Only OCs linked in the comments below will be eligible for the event.Show me at least one reference
: I won't draw OCs with no references or descriptions only, sorry.PLEASE RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE AND ME
. Don't harass anyone, don't be rude! Please respect others. You can't enter with double accounts! ONLY account that are at least 1 month old can enter.
I'll check, so please be honest.HOW TO MAKE A GOOD REFERENCE
The works with better references will be 'privileged', but... how do you know if you have a good reference? All you need to have is:
At least one half-body drawing of your character. Even line arts or sketches are ok.
If the drawing is not colored, please let me know the general colors of the OC (I'm not planning on coloring them all, but I might...).
The reference should include, or should be accompanied by, a brief (VERY BRIEF, max 3 lines) description of the character's attitude. Personal history is not required.
The drawing reference can be done by someone else (so commissions by others are ok).
You can link me different pictures, or make a collage with different drawings you have, as you prefer.
I'M MORE LIKELY TO DRAW...
-Every kind of human: male, female, kids… no problems with humans!
-Anthros & Furries are ok, especially Kenomimis and such
I'M LESS LIKELY TO DRAW...
-Robots (and I mean robots like Transformers, while "cyber-humans" are ok)
-Animals: not really into drawing animals, but.. if you have only animal OCs give it a try!
When the contest ends, I'll take some days to choose the OCs that I like the most and draw a Headshot Sketch (see EXAMPLES)
The winners will be selected by me, following these criteria:-Originality
-Looks & Overall Concept
-OC's Attitude and Charm*
*(this doesn't mean the OC has to be physically beautiful, but he/she/it has to be interesting to me)Number of winners:
If before the end of the contest, I reach the target of 2000 watchers, I'll select 10 winners
, if I don't there will be 5 winners.DEADLINE: May 15th 2014
I think that's it!!
Should you have any question, please do not hesitate to comment below and ask!!
I'll answer as soon as possible!!
Thank you very much and please fav and share this journal to spread the voice about this event!! <3
(But please notice that journals about this event will not help you to get your OCs drawn ^^')
