Contest Announcement~

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 8, 2014, 2:02 PM


I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce it :D :D :D


The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how. 


here are images of them for inspiration Fall at Your Feet by Yuuza  You Are Mine by Yuuza  Don't leave me by Yuuza  Fly Away by Yuuza  Dark by Yuuza  Crow by Yuuza  The Magic of the Crow by Yuuza  Crow and Fox by Yuuza  me want by Yuuza  crow by faQy  SS 2013 Yuuza by erebun  ::Secret Santa:: Yuuza by Jotaku

A few notes about how the characters look like, Fox may or may not have ears, she may have anything from 1 tail to how many you want! I am not strict about their design and i encourage originality and creativity. Crow may or may not have wings, the wings can be normal wings or wings made of crows and black smoke, whichever you prefer. Fox's hair color is white or blonde or the color seen in the images (i am currently changing her design to not have a gradient hair but simple white but again, you can be creative). The only thing to keep in mind is that Crow wears dark colors and Fox very ligh colors.




RULES, HOW TO ENTER:

-make a drawing of Crow, Fox or both. Submit it to deviantart (not stash, i cannot +fav it if it's in stash or on another site) and SEND ME A NOTE with the link with your submission and i will add it to this specially made collection yuuza.deviantart.com/favourite… You can also view what everyone else submitted there as well
Please don't simply comment with your submission because i get tons of comments and it might get buried or worse, i might loose it. So please send a note instead!

-multiple sumbissions are allowed
-you must be prepared to give me your home address in case you win. I have to be able to send the prizes somewhere :D If you're shy about giving it then don't enter ^^

The deadline for the contest is 9th of may :D so i ma giving one month for the cobtestants to make their draiwngs.

And what everyone's been probably waiting to find out, THE PRIZES!!!! :D:D

There will be 3 winners


1st prize bundle

-an A4 sketchbook just like mine with a drawing on the first page made by me! The drawing is already made and waiting! I will not post the drawing on dAbefore it reaches you. Once you received the sketchbook in the mail, send me a note and i will submit it to my gallery as well
-a bookmark
-A print from my gallery of your choosing (A4 or A3 whichever you prefer)
-100 points
-a special written note from me sent along with the sketchbook




2nd prize bundle

-a A5 sketchbook just like mine with a drawing made by me on the first page
-a bookmark
-a print from my gallery of your choosing (A4 or A3, whichever you prefer)
-100 points
-a special written note from me  sent along with the sketchbook



3rd prize

-200 points

All 3 winners will get a feature from me :iconyuuza: and :iconmarcoemma:

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::

the drawings in the sketchbooks are made especially for this contest, i also bought tose sketchbooks especially for this contest. So you won't find the drawings in my gallery. I will submit them though but only after the winners receive their pruize. I want them to see new artwork they haven't seen yet in my gallery :D

The sketchbooks are exactly the ones i am using but keep in mind that the images i submit to dA are edited in photoshop to have color and white. These sketchbooks have white paper, not dark grey as it appears in my deviations. I will make a tutorial on how i edit my drawings soon!

Here is a sneak peak of the prizes!



note: when you will receive your sketchbook in the mail, it will smell like parfume. But that is not because i'm a creeper who parfumes her drawings and then sends it to you :lol: but because after i finish a pencil drawing, i spray hairspray on it so the pencil will not smudge. I highly recommend this technique also! The hairspray will glue your pencil to the paper and it will not smudge or erase, it's very good to keeping your drawings clean after you made them, you can use this technique while drawing, if you have a zone that is finished adn you don't want to smudge it, spray some hairspray on it :D but be carefull, if you spray some zones you want to erase you won't be able to erase them anymore. Another technique for keeping your pencil drawings clean is to always have a piece of paper (i use an A4 copy paper) and keep it between your hand and the page, the paper will prevent our hand from smudging your drawing because the paper will protect it. It will be annoying at first but once you get used to it it's very handy :D and your drawings will be clean~

The judges are me :iconyuuza: :iconadorael: :iconanonymyth: :iconidjpanda: :iconyubbi45:

you can add some yellow, orange, and even red sure :D foxes are known to be red/orange so that wouldn't break character
