Contest
Reflections of the Soul


~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~v*v~

One of the most admirable qualities that we, as living beings, possess is that each and every one of us has a different interpretation of everything around us. From objects, to everyday events, as well as other creatures. No matter how similar some may be, there is always some sort of difference that sets one persons view from that of another. Even we might not all agree with all of them, it is still important to listen to what someone has to say.

The topic of this contest is to depict the wolf as you see it as an overall creature. Do you see the wolf as a wise healer? A bloodthirsty monster? Or, is it something else? It is completely your decision! You may depict your wolf in any style; anthropomorphic, realistic, surreal, fantasy, symbolic, or any combination of styles.

If youre having trouble with how to show how you see wolves, try looking at various mythology from other cultures such as Native American tribes, biblical descriptions, and such.

If you need some clarifications or have a question or two, drop a line on this here or send me a private message.

There arent any restrictions on the artistic mediums you use to create your entry. You can use traditional or digital media or even writing. Let your imagination run wild and free!

The entries are due on July 30th, 2006. This should be plenty of time for the contestants to get their entries in. If necessary, I will give an extension if the deadline is nearing and someone needs it.

I will allow:
~ Blood and gore, but please be sure to restrict it to a PG-13 rating.
~ Anthros, werewolves, normal wolves, winged or any kind of fantasy wolf.
~ Each contestant may enter as many entries as he or she chooses.
~ If you decide to draw an anthro/werewolf, please keep it clean. Only tasteful nudity is allowed.
~ You may have an original character in your entry just as long as it remains pertinent to the main topic.
~ Things such as prose and poetry are completely acceptable!

I will NOT allow:
~ Any sexual or drug-related themes
~ Nudity
~ Entries that have been traced/copied/stolen from another artist/writer.
~ Entries that have been drawn on lined (binder) paper.
~ Flaming or religion bashing.

I'd also like to note that this contest is being held between my deviantART, SheezyArt, and FAC accounts. If you'd like to see the list of contestants on those particular sites, please clich here.

I will be judging the entries along with the help of some friends and my relatives. The entries will be judged on the following basics:

~ Creativity (This will be really hard to judge!)
~ Effort - Does the entry look as if some time was taken to create it?
~ Neatness - Does the entry look neat and clean by means of the initial drawing or spelling/grammar?
~ Uniqueness - Does the entry stand out in any way? How? Is it the subject matter, colors, style. . .?
~ Et Cetera. . .

(More judging criteria may be added later if I forgot to put something up there or if someone makes a suggestion.)

Prizes:
Once the winners have been selected, they will receive the following prizes:

1st Place: One free commission with a full, detailed background with a limit of two characters.
2nd Place: One free commission with a full, detailed background with up to one character
3rd Place: One free commission with a full, simple background with up to one character.
4th Place: One free commission with no background with one, detailed/colored character.
5th Place: One free commission done neatly in pencil or ink. No color will be added.

The prozes will be sent to the winners via snail mail.

If the number of entries exceeds 10, there will also be a prize for a random entry. More details will be added if there are 10 entries.

Well, as far as rules and prize details go, Im pretty sure thats about it! So how about it? Good luck and be sure to have fun! :D

Oh yes, if you wish to join the contest, just leave a comment here or PM me. Once your entry has been completed, be sure to send me a PM so it doesnt slip from under my nose. :)

Remember, if you have any questions, dont hesitate to ask.

Is it alright if I enter my picture? It's called 'Ephemeral', but unfortunately, I'm on a public computer and cannot get the exact link to the picture. However, the link to my profile is www.fanart-central.net/profile-Escariot.php

Thank you!

This sounds cool I can probably get it in by the 30th! Can it be close ups or does it have to be full body?

ATTENTION TO ALL WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY POSTED IN THIS TOPIC:

Seeing as the due date has long since expired, and this topic unattended to, I will allow everyone here to enter pictures if they are still interested. In addition, I will draw a simple (colored) sketch request to everyone as an apology. I do not have a new deadline for the entries based here at FAC, so the contest will end until the last [participating] person has entered.

I will be sending everyone a PM informing them of this, thank you.

I feel absolutely ashamed and disgusted with myself.

Thanks!

meh, it's ok. Things happen ^_^ I was wondering if I can enter this pic? I wasn't sure if we were able to enter wolves from games.
