Wow guys. Wow. I was not expecting so many people to like the my contest idea! Well if this is going to be a contest, it's going to need a bit more structure, wouldn't you say?

What are we even doing?

Good question! The point of this is to compete with each other while also showing off our own styles, and to give prompts to give practice on various styles.

Ok, Sure. That's fun and all, but what do I have to do?

You make an outfit for a character on this forum. Each round there is ONE character given from a list of characters that their roleplayers have offered to play mannequin. There is also a theme that your design must somehow tie into. The character and theme will change each round. This is to give equal footing to everyone when voting.

What? Voting?

Yes, voting. At the end of each round, which is two weeks long (possibly will be shortened to one week later on) the submitted designs will be put to voting. It is a contest after all, isn't it? Now before you ask, you're wondering what you'll win. Am I right?

.....Yes?

Your prize if you win the round is that you get to pick the theme of the next round. I know it doesn't seem like much, but you'll also know that your design was picked by your peers as the best. I can't really afford to send prizes to people every two weeks, you know? The theme that the winner picks can be as specific or broad as they want. From dapper to retrostuck, it's up to you. That said, you can't pick one that'll be easy for you to win the next time around because you can't win twice in a row.

What? There are rules?!

You betcha! And here they are, in nice numerical list form:

1) You cannot win twice in a row
2) In the voting sessions you cannot vote for your own piece
3) Genderbends will not be allowed. This is meant to push your artisticn-ness.
4) If you are volunteering your character for a redesign, you can resubmit their name only after there is a minimum of five names following it.
5) When voting keep in mind how well the theme is portrayed and not just the style of the art,
6) Please have taste when picking themes/redesigning. I know this goes without saying, but in case.
7) Rules are subject to change and updates as seen fit.

Fine. I read all those. Can we start yet?

Almost. You need to know the theme and character first don't you?

All future themes shall be decided by the winners of the previous round.

No, you don't have the colour it. You can if you want to, but you don't have to.


And I'm very disappointed in the lack of anything being put up! Since I know people have things to do in life, I will be EXTENDING the deadline. It shall be moved from the 27th, until the 31st at MIDNIGHT. I really do NOT want to have this go without any winner, or to go with just a default because only one person submitted. PLEASE submit your art pieces.



To SUBMIT your design you simply post it HERE in the thread. Under a SPOILER tag preferably.

dfjkgdjk why is it not working

Okay, I give up. Here's the URL thing instead.

I have no concept of anatomy. It kinda fades out at the bottom because I have a shitty scanner.

Wow I love the outfit you drew, White Queen!! Now I'm kind of nervous to submit mine! xD


I'm sorry for the bad quality, my scanner is shitty so I had to take a picture of my drawing and then sort of edit it?? I don't even know! So yeah, that's why it looks lame. xD'

I kind of have a concept for my drawing!! Since the theme was Medieval Fantasy, I looked into RPG classes and found the Necromancer one... It kind of struck me like the perfect class for Aradia since she likes dead things so much! xD

So I went with that and that's why she has a sort of magic staff and dark magic in her hand because she's summoning zombies!

I tried to use the canon as inspiration so her pants the bandages on her legs come from her God Tier outfit! (Also if you look closely, you can spot the TIME symbol hanging from her staff and on the pin she wears on her cloak!) The torn cloak and .... "dress" refer to her default outfit (when she's dead! xD). I also like to think Aradia's clothes were always tattered because of how she was exploring/playing in the dirt for archeology!

(Do I get bonus points for the awesome justification of my concept? No? Aaw! xD)

I honestly can't say I had much of a concept with this one! I just cannot resist an opportunity to draw Aradia

Heehee I have no idea how to design clothing and patterns and what I just don't know

I'm sorry, but it's late Jade. The cut off time was midnight EST, not 2.30.
....Considering it's the first round, I'll accept it. This it the only time however, I hope you understand.

ANYONE that submits past the cut off time will have their submission ignored after this one time.



ROUND 1 SUBMISSIONS CLOSED


Round 2 Begins!

Character: Rose Lalonde
Theme: DISCO

End date: Friday, September 14th

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry, Rose! I have my timezone set differently over on my computer, so that is totally my fault. You even mentioned it being EST and I still made that mistake. Again, I'm terribly sorry about the inconvenience.

Thank you so much for being so understanding and patient about this. I will most definitely be more on top of this in the future!

Right, so. I've had a talk with a couple people and I've decided that for now, to extend the length of the rounds. Each round of submission and voting will be a MONTH rather than two weeks. Hopefully this place will actually pick up, and I will be able to shorten the rounds.
For now, you have two more weeks.

Use em wisely, and please submit stuff.

So since there were no other submissions, Mara wins this round.
And I quit. If people are to busy, then no point in working to keep this going.

Contest is closed.
