Hello everybody, and welcome to the

DRAW MY OCs CONTEST!


This is my first official contest and I hope many of you will take part! *O*
The contest is for digital and traditional art only (no literature, no photomanipulation, etc..) and there will be several prizes.
Depending on how many entries I will receive, I will add 3 more prize categories (read below for more info).
Read the whole journal for all the info about the contest!
Please add this journal to your favorites (even if you're not sure wether you'll enter or not) to let more people know about it!
And feel free to ask your questions in the comments and I'll be glad to answer your doubts! <3
Thank you very much and... good luck!

THEME

Draw my OCs!
Nice and easy as it sounds: you just have to draw my Original Characters! You can choose the setting, the poses, which characters to draw.. everything! BUT they all must be MY Original Characters. You can find the descriptions and references of all my characters, in this journal:
Introducing my Original Characters!Hi everybody! :wave: revamp

My "Draw my OCs" Contest  is open, so the time has come to tell you more about my OCs and their stories! :)
Below you'll see the list of the comics/projects/stories to which my OCs belong and you'll be able to know more about their pasts, their behaviors, their love stories and much more! 
The order in which the OCs are listed doesn't mean anything: there's no project I like more than the others, or no OC that you'll have to draw to have more chances to win. Everything depends on your ability to portray them and their stories, independently from your drawing skills. If the drawing is technically perfect, but the characters are completely different from the ones described here (physically and temperamentally) it won't win, because it doesn't represent my OCs in the right way.
So, do your best and don't forget to read the descriptions carefully! ^^
Before every story I'

BROWSE ENTRIES


JUDGES


:iconeeren: :iconpiccolaria: :iconladydeddelit:
I will judge the entries, with the help of PiccolaRia and LadyDeddelit.
The works will be judged based on:
•Characters' Accuracy (looks and personality)•
•Technical Skills•
•Visual Impact•
•Originality•


This is how things will work:
• 3 days after the closing of the contest, we will announce 10 Semifinalists and publish them on my journal page.
                              • The judges will give each of the Semifinalists a vote (based on: Characters' Accuracy//Technical Skills//Visual Impact//Originality) and the ones with the highest total rating will in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The other prizes (Best Couple and Best Group) will also be assigned in the same way.
• The "Eren's Favorite" award will be given based ONLY on my personal judgment.
• All the prizes will be announced by me as soon as we reach a decision (3 days for the semifinalists + 7 for the definitive ones, so around 10 days after the deadline).

IF THE AMOUNT OF 25 ENTRIES IS REACHED:
*(Please notice that if the amount is not reached, we will distribute the prizes for these extra categories among the other ones)*
          • I will open a poll with all the 10 semifinalists which will remain on for a week (from the day of the announcement of the semifinalists). At the end of the poll, the one with more votes will win the Most Popular Extra Prize** (see below). 
 • Each one of the judges will purpose the best three works for the categories "Best Hot" and "Best Cute" and the we will choose the one with higher rating as the winner of its category.
**the Most Popular prize has been changed from a "regular" prize, to a bonus! This means that this will be the only prize you can win TOGETHER WITH ANOTHER PRIZE!
As I wrote above you'll get this by getting the most votes in the Semifinal votes, so you can ask your friends and watchers to support you!
THIS WILL BE THE ONLY PRIZE ASSIGNED BY THE AUDIENCE. 

PRIZES


As I mentioned before there will be several prizes, and if we reach a total of more than 25 entries, the EXTRA PRIZES will be added too. If the contest won't reach that amount of entries the prized from the EXTRA categories will be shared among the other prize categories.

All the winning entries will be included in the "Winner Features" folder of the :icondaocc:
They will also be featured by me, CuzzaCurry, LauraDex, Broken-Friendship and sneha07!
And receive llamas by: CuzzaCurry, LauraDex, sneha07 and lpso18 !

I guess I won't be able to submit my art before work piled up. Oh well, it was great to know about this contest! If I'm able to, I'll try to submit my art.
