*** 1st Semi-Annual Advent: Dawn ***
*** Art Contest ***
The first semi-annual Advent: Dawn Art Contest has begun!
Now, this contest is not just for participants of Advent: Dawn - this contest is for anyone looking for something new to try, as the contest revolves entirely around original characters, created by myself and other participants of Advent: Dawn.
As this is the first contest, I'll start out with something relatively simple (in comparison to other ideas I've had, that is XP ). Anyways, here are the parameters for the first contest:
Artistic Style: Tite Kubo's "Bleach". If you need references, Google images of "Bleach" and its characters (e.g. Ichigo, Rukia, Chad) and go off of those. Anyone not following this artistic style can still submit their entries, but you are more likely to win if you do follow it.
Characters: Any characters that have been created or introduced into the story (see "Advent: Dawn" in the RPs Thread, and/or "Advent: Dawn - A reboot of The Great Event" in the New RPG Ideas Thread). Draw any one(s) you want, posing however you want, wearing whatever you want. The only request I have is this: if you draw Michael Lance, keep his left eye hidden from view in some way. Other than that, feel free to express yourself! If you need more reference material, PM the creator of the character you need references for.
Setting: Again, anything will do. There's really no restrictions for this, so go wild!
Theme: This is a little something I'm adding just for this contest. Pick a song of your choice (something without explicit lyrics, if you please) and submit it along with your picture. Again, this is not mandatory, but you'll have an advantage if you choose to do so. Also, bonus points for including a character whose theme is the same as the one you picked.
And finally, one last rule for you to follow: have fun! The whole point of this contest is to see who can have the most fun putting their own spin on a new idea. So go at it, and have a blast!
Any questions? Comments? Random statements? PM me! I promise I won't bite-- well, not too hard, at least.
Deadline is 3 months from today. The winner will have their picture added to the official Advent: Dawn concept art gallery!
The Mysterious Michael Lance.
