Steam Punk Sailor Moon Contest

Journal Entry: Tue May 1, 2012, 9:18 AM


It is time for our summer contest to begin!  We let out a little teaser in mentioning earlier that this was going to be a fan art contest, but no other details were given.  As you can tell by the title of this post, it's a Sailor Moon fan art contest with a twist!  Many of our group staff are avid fans of Sailor Moon, so we couldn't resist hosting a contest for this wonderful magical girl anime.

RULES
  1. Only members of ARTISTICANIMANGA may participate. No watchers, affiliates, or non-members may participate.
  2. All contest entries must be made specifically for this contest. This means you cannot submit a deviation that was made before this contest was announced. Your entry must be dated on or after the start date of the contest (May 1st, 2012).
  3. You can submit a maximum of two (2) entries, but you can only win once.
  4. All entries must have a simple background.
  5. All contest entries must have the group icon in the artist's comment area.
  6. Please only use minimal watermarks. Please do not splatter text all over your entry, it takes away from the quality of the work. Minimal watermarks means something very small that does not affect the work.
  7. Your entry cannot break our group rules. This includes our list of what our group finds not acceptable.
  8. For your contest entry to be acceptable as an entry, it must follow the contest theme.
  9. All contest entries must be submitted into the Favorites folder labeled "Steampunk Sailor Moon Contest". This is to give everyone a chance at submitting their entry as well as keeping the group galleries rules of standards in place.  (Note: You will not get a correspondence message when you submit your entry.  To see if it was accepted, please wait two days for it to be reviewed and then check the favorites folder.)
  10. You can submit your contest entry to the group galleries. However, they will be subject to our standards of quality control.
  11. The winners will be submitted into the contest gallery when voting is complete. So if your entry is selected as a winner, please accept the group's request.
  12. Please remember that our staff are huge fans of this anime, so please refrain from copying/tracing poses directly.  We know there are trademark poses, but we will obviously know which ones are a copy/trace.

CONTEST THEME
  • Contest entries must be a character from the Sailor Moon anime/manga.  They can be the main characters, villains, and even some smaller characters (such as Queen Serenity, ChibiChibi, etc).
  • The character(s) you choose must display steampunk styles/characteristics in their designs.

does the picture need to be colored? Do you accept lineart submissions?
Reply
:iconfoogie:
foogie Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Entries should be colored- after all, there is also a simple background requirement, and plain lineart does not fulfill that... nor will it stand out amongst other entries. :) The aim for entries is to be fully finished and refined pieces of art!

I you are unfamiliar with Steampunk style, take a look at the "NEED INSPIRATION?" section of this blog, or do a google image search to see some more examples. :)

I know this is early to ask, but can the deadline be extended by a week? you guys posted this at a time that I have commissions to finish during this month and just got done with finals. Its pretty tight and I really want this to look awesome!

This may or may not occur, it will depend around the time that the contest will be closer to ending if we decide to extend the deadline.
