Hey everyone! Due to recent activities, i gained a few more watchers and so i decided to open my first contest here on dA!

But, first things first. If you are the lucky 3333rd profile viewer, you get a special gift! In case you do, be sure to send me a Note or write a comment anywhere on my profile with an attached screenshot and what you'd like me to draw for you! 
The prize size will be an upper body shot, something like this: I am a dummy!

Aaaand...  

CONTEST TIME!! 

:iconleleleplz:

Being my first contest, i'll set up basic prizes for the 3 higher rankings, increasing the consistency of these prizes in case we reach a good amount of participants! But let's talk about the theme first.

BLONDE CHARACTERS

Everyone likes dem blondies, right? Well, i actually really don't. i'm obviously kidding, don't get mad :>
That's why i want YOU to change my mind on this!
To make the contest friendly to any user, and also considering the large amount of younger people here on dA, i chose a few blonde characters that i like within the "mainstream" pop-culture universe. They'd be:
- Roxas, from Kingdom Hearts
- Ezreal, from League of Legends
- Sanji, from One Piece
- Rikku, from Final Fantasy X
- Eikichi, from GTO

You can find tons of reference images for these characters on Google

Now, i want you to reimagine these characters in the most original way you can come up with. You don't have to respect their nature, i don't want you to think that the character you draw is drawn "correctly", you can do anything you want, just impress me! Use a comic situation to make a boring character into a funny one, imagine them in a different historical time, use colour to send a certain feeling to the viewer, whatever your mind comes up with: i want you to be CREATIVE while being "restricted" by drawing a character that already exists.

I will "judge" the drawings not on technical skill, but on the idea behind them so don't be afraid of joining the contest if you're a beginner! (because even i am one)

Prizes AND winners will be eventually increased once we get more entries! Derp Face 
Feel free to share this with your friends, the more, the merrier!

Prizes at 10 confirmed entries:
+full background for 1st place!
+basic background for 2nd place!


Prizes at 20 entries:
Previous prizes PLUS
1 Month Premium MembershipPoints  for 1st place!
Full background for 2nd place!
Basic background for 3nd place!
Also, 4 winners and a black&white drawing for the 4th prize!

Actual Prizes:

 1st place: 1 Full Body, no Background drawing

2nd place: 1 Half body, no Background drawing

3rd place: 1 Portrait, no Background drawing

Now the boring part... the RULEEEEEEEES

They're actually quite simple. AND not boring, trust me.
Make sure you're Watching+fav me (who wouldn't?) and leave a comment below! That will get you in the contest!
Also, please do not copy other drawings. I will be checking this, so... behave!
(referencing is obviously ok, just don't copy the whole idea and present it as yours. In case of using reference, make sure to credit them if they've been taken here on dA!)

Deadline is the 11st of November

Which also happens to be my birthday.

SO, GIVE ME A NICE PRESENT. GOT IT?

this journal will be eventually updated when necessary
  • Mood: Joy
  • Watching: Nothing because i'm lazy.
  • Playing: FFXIV

What is this i don't even- (slightly updated)
Just a speedpaint/tribute to both Harlock and Dario (an italian youtuber) i made yesterday.

Friend Portrait by lldimall
Friend Portrait
i haven't submitted something here in... ages. yep. with no particular reason, tbh.

anyway, this is a "portrait" of a friend of mine, made to try using a palette from Kuler.


You can find me on other websites, too! :D

Ok... le notifiche in alto a destra mi destabilizzano e le scritte tutte maiuscole mi inquietano D:
Poi c'è quel widget nuovo che ho levato subito...
 
Voto finale per il nuovo aggiornamento: Meh 


Su faccialibro ho letto che vuoi fare un contest!!  :ohstarelegasp: 
Sono curiosissima!

quale widget? D: a me la nuova grafica in generale piace, mi sembra più intuitiva. (alla fine con quella vecchia era abitudine!)

comunque si, m'avevi fatto venir la voglia di fare un contest quando avevo letto che stava per finire il tuo! :v
sto finendo un po' di decidere cosa mettere come premio, e soprattutto il tema del contest
probabilmente all'inizio metterò un disegno da parte mia a scelta, dei punti o 1 mese di premium (o anche disegno+premium etc, vedrò in base alla partecipazione)

Il widget che ti mette l'elenco di tutte le cose che fai nella tua pagina D:
Io l'ho levato subito.
Boh... a me non sembra che abbiano fatto grossi cambiamenti, però devo ancora abituarmi alle notifiche a destra XD


I contest sono bellissimi!! 
Io ho già l'idea per il prossimo, ma non lo farò prima di novembre.
La cosa importante per fare un contest è spammarlo nei gruppi apposta. Esiste anche un database dei contest da qualche parte...
Io ho aggiunto premi in base alla partecipazione (alla fine avevo 20 entries, quindi ho scelto 5 vincitori + la menzione speciale). E ho dato 5 punti ad ogni partecipante (questa cosa è stata particolarmente apprezzata. Se non hai troppe entry puoi farla anche tu, sennò poi diventa costoso :D )
Comunque se ti serve una mano, chiedimi pure :la:
