So, I've decided to go ahead and hold my first contest on deviantArt! If you would like to participate read the details below and then post a comment on this journal.Theme: Separation
I would like for you to draw my original character Aelindas and incorporate the theme of separation into the drawing. It can be a physical or emotional distancing between her and one of your OC's, or an object or place. (I would love if you included a short backstory for your image, as it will make it easier for me to understand what's happening in your entry) Just to twist things up a bit, the theme doesn't have to be interpreted in a sorrowful manner, but that is for you to decide.
Here's an image of Aelindas for you to use as a reference:
(You can read the description to get a better idea of her character)
It's important to keep in mind that she is a goddess. So, if you have a god/goddess OC that you would like draw, do so by all means. The same goes for mortal characters, too. Whether your character is fantasy, modern, or sci-fi oriented, you may choose to draw them in any manner you wish. (For example, if you have a sci-fi character you would like to draw, you can draw them as you usually do, or you can place them in a fantasy style setting with appropriate garb)
If you don't have an original character, then you can choose an object or place to incorporate into your picture.Medium
The medium is whatever you're comfortable working with. Whether you're a traditional or digital artist, all art styles are welcome. The image can be colored or black and white. If you want to color your entry then here is a list of Aelindas' color scheme.
Light Blue Eyes
Black Dress (with white pearls)Rules
The only rule is to make sure your artwork is tasteful and decent. I don't want any blatant nudity, sexual content, or profanity. If you wish to incorporate blood or violence into your entry, keep it at a limit (no decapitations or severed limbs). If I find any of these in your image, it will result in immediate disqualification from the contest.
Apart from that, have fun and be creative!
There will be rewards offered out to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners!
I will judge according to originality and creativity, not skill level or technique. The deadline for this contest will be June 1st.
If you have any questions or comments concerning the contest, don't hesitate to ask. Now, go forth and create your masterpiece!Contestants Entries So Far
