CONTEST: Draw your Favorite Game/Anime/Original Character as other characters or ZOMBIES!

Deadline: October 31, 2011 (CLOSED)

Theme: What makes cosplaying as gruesome Amnesia monsters or putting on legit Batman underwear and mask and going out into public fun? The fact you can instill both fear and disturbing comments like, "Dude, you need to get a life" of course!

Draw anyone! -Your favorite anime characters, game characters, your aunt Maria, or original characters, and put them in Pokemon, superhero, fat suits, zombie costumes- you name it! Just make sure to get a real laugh/scare while drawing it.

Rules:
1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When October 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 overly explicit material allowed. Come on, we do not want to put porn on the main site!

Scoring Guidelines:
Originality: 40 points
Example: http://www.kakamanna.com/pictures/halloween-cat.jpg
- Do not just put a costume on a person and make him/her stand there. There has to be something scary/hilarious/special about the costume/person that makes people say, "I would have never thought of that!" Make it really express the true spirit of Halloween!

Skill: 30 points
Example: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs21/f/2007/302/4/6/Halloween_2007_by_muhoho_seijin.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.

Background: 20 points
Example: http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs50/f/2009/282/0/3/Halloween_Tree_by_jerry8448.jpg
- That is right. For those of you want decent points for this category and stink at making acceptable backgrounds- you better start practicing. What type of Halloween is without the eerie Halloween atmosphere (ex: cemeteries, pumpkins, slime...etc)? The character may be the center, but the background is what really sets up the Halloween atmosphere!

Colors: 10 points
Example: http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs19/f/2007/301/3/c/Halloween_by_DensenManiya.jpg
- Color can bring out fire in the eyes of angry zombies, faces of moonlit werewolves, and teeth of hungry vampires. This is not only to help make your picture more appealing, but also to help stray from simple flat colors. However, this category is incredibly wavered because extremely black and white schemes can definitively go with the current theme.

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)

Note:
- Send contest information (whether you will enter, questions, links to entries) to either this picture, the forum post, or my profile
-You can draw multiple characters on this entry (There is much leeway to draw practically any Halloween idea in this theme!)

Post any questions! If not, be lost in a void of confusion, laughter, and pointing fingers. Good Luck!

Winner:
1st Place: http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-813949.html
Name: _ren_tao_fan_
Originality: 32/40
Skill: 28/30
Background: 17/20
Colors: 8.7/10
Total: 85.7
- With gruesome, bloody cut limbs, evident ribs and intestines, an obvious mastery of MSPaint, and a knack for drawing different art styles, this Halloween picture makes you look at your favorite childhood cartoon characters a little differently afterwards...

By golly, judging this contest was a jerk! Everyone had different views of Halloween; some were fun, cute, hilarious, and bloody/gruesome! Thus, the points were too close for comfort. Literally, the winner won by .3 points. If you look at the median of points, people were beating each other by .4, .6, and sometimes .2. Thus, you are all equally fabulous artists! I hope everyone had a fearful/toothached Halloween! See you next contest!

Yes it does (since it does include the dressing up aspect)! However, are you sure you do not want to try whipping up a new picture just for this contest? You may find yourself making something even better!

Quote:

Nope! Being straight to the point is good! The only thing I wanted to add to it was the actual main-site picture link: http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-813243.html
-I am not sure if you can edit your previous main site comment.

-I cannot wait for that pheral to change for Halloween. It has stayed the same glassy-eyed pheral for TOO LONG! Too long I say! Cool

Also, I have officially started the contest on the 12th. This gives FAC members 19 days to make a decent contest entry. I will do my absolute best to grade/judge the entries as soon as possible because getting a score for a Halloween contest wayyy after Halloween has ended would be a little anti-climatic.

Also Starta, how exactly is the winning picture going to be posted on the mainsite? Are we going to just post a link of it through the FAC news or configure an actual "Recent Contest Winner" space into the main site? I feel the lather idea would be AMAZING. -Since Denis said an estimation of when the new update will come is around Christmas. Having a contest part on the mainsite would really create the mood for more participants in the alter contests. We could put the space under the Featured Artist or something.

We can edit mainsite news postings just like any other posting, however image linking is a different matter.

Oh! If you are bad at backgrounds, this is a CHALLENGE. A perfect change to show off your long-lost talent for backgrounds! You could always use Halloween scenery references- as long as you do not have a lame flat color or only random spots of white in the background, you will get reasonable points!

We can link to picture pages just like anything else, just not the thumbnails / picture itself.

I wanted a link to the picture page. Sorry for the lack of clarification! ;u

FAC tends to stray from the use of photography as much as possible. You can use it, but only minimally so that most of your picture was made by you (and make sure to link to where you found it!). Then again, you could always skip the haphazard of making sure you can make the picture mostly original by just using the stock photo as just reference.

Would this be accepted? A demon is a character... kind of. If it isn't, I'll still leave it up here and at da. Linky: http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-813389.html Otherwise, I'll do him as someone else.

Dylan the demon will do perfectly fine! (He is technically dressed as something that is different than himself) I love your coloring! I will put your entry in! Thanks for the contribution. I am glad you submitted it to FAC because I did not want lamely to be all, "But I don't wanna go all the way to Deviant Artttttttt." Wink

Thanks so much. I was worried that it wouldn't be accepted, but you did and I'm relieved.
