CONTEST: Who's under that mistletoe?

Deadline: December 31, 2011 (CLOSED)

Theme: Sipping eggnog and eating cookies by the fire is nice and all, but being traditionally obliged to kiss that special (or even hated) person under the mistletoe is something to send a holiday postcard about!

Draw those persons, or even group of people, finding themselves under the mistletoe. It could be romantic, humorous, or just plain awful. These people could be based off your real life or completely made up. Just know that anything concerning a mistletoe is not boring!

Rules:
1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When December 31, 2011 12:00 AM passes, submissions are closed for the contest. I do not take late work, no matter how good you are. Smile
3. No explicit sexual themes/violence. No one sane kills someone under the mistletoe, no matter how icky they are!

Scoring Guidelines:
Skill: 40 points
Example: http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2011/345/2/2/faberry___this_is_december___mistletoe_by_patronustrip-d4iu7ee.jpg
- You can use crafts, digital mediums, traditional mediums(etc.) to express this theme, but you need skill to make it look good! Whatever style you work with, whether anime or realism, make it synchronize with your idea, and your skill will inevitably show.

Creativity: 30 points
Example: http://fast1.onesite.com/capcom-unity.com/user/ideaman/9ce74ce411a37767d0e1d82e0ae8186a.jpg?v=193950
- Kissing under the mistletoe is an expected reaction, but what makes it really interesting is if they hate, feel awkward, or have an angry cheese crab in their way. Mistletoe situations are a perfect sources of original moments!

Christmas Theme: 20 points
Example: http://th04.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2010/350/f/9/mistletoe_by_harpyqueen-d350wim.jpg
- Including the mistletoe, there should be other Christmas elements such as a Christmas tree, presents, ornaments, cookies and milk (etc), something to show that they did not randomly put a mistletoe up in the middle of April!

Colors: 10 points
Example: http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/359/4/3/christmas_plant_spirit_by_alectorfencer-d35mrny.gif
- Christmas is never black and white. Green, blue, red, yellow (etc) are all the few colors affiliated with Christmas lights, trees, and presents. The holidays is no time to be narrow-color-minded.

Prize:
1rst Place:
-Putting your winning picture on the site news/main-page (this will be an alternative to those who still do not completely qualify for featured pictures or are too new to be popular)
- Specialized 2011 Christmas Contest Winner badge that you can put on your profile/winning picture description

That entry is acceptable, since it includes the misteltoe element, but having more than one character would give you more points, so uploading the couple picture would not hurt! Surprised

I have put your entry up! Did you accidently disable comments? I usually comment on the contest pictures because I am OCD like that!

AH! Since I haven't been online in so long, I'm so behind!

Not only is the Christmas Contest up, but I'm SOOOO BEHIND in my work! Sad
I'll see what I can do for the contest, but I'm not too confident I'll get something finished by then...

What kind of limitations are there? Would we be allowed to do a yuri thing (I have so much trouble drawing guys)? >_>

Work as in artistic work or outside work/problems? If it is the lather, do not worry about the contest and just concentrate on the outside "work!"

Very Happy You still have 11 days to draw a contest picture, and if you still cannot make the deadline, at least you pondered ideas about it (revived some of your creative juices)!

Yuri/yaoi is allowed since it is a mistletoe theme, and it is okay to accept the entire sexual spectrum! Just make sure it is not too sexually explicit and violent (although it would be strange to want to show that much blood and gore for a Christmas tradition in the first place ;__;).
