LOL
CONTEST: Draw you and your friends (real or fictional) enjoying a fireworks show!

Deadline: July 13, 2012 (CLOSED)

Theme: Exploding hundreds of combustibles at rhythmatic times is what Independence Day is all about! However, the best time to set those fireworks up to see the glimmering and colorful lights is not alone, but with family and friends (fictional or not)! Draw your buddies, peeps, homedawghs, and Uncle May enjoying the fireworks with you on Independence Day!

Rules:
1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When July 13, 2012 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 sexuality/violence

Scoring Guidelines:
Skill: 40 points
Example: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/285/3/0/fireworks_show_by_kaceym-d30mit2.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://fc04.deviantart.net/fs41/f/2009/010/d/4/Fireworks_Field_by_vaniamarita.jpg
- No one wants to see a loner in the shadows on Independence Day. We want to see everyone lively, intrigued, and interacting with each other in a fun/mischievous/creative way! The more characters, the better!

Lighting: 20 points
Example: http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/184/8/6/Fireworks_by_dackQ.jpg
- When there are fireworks, there is lights, and lots of it. Being able to shade characters with firework lighting in mind is a difficult task, but when succeeded or even decently attempted, it can pool into your Skill points!

Colors: 10 points
Example: http://bengalized.com/art/pictures/TandU/fireworks%20finale%20blog.jpg
- You know what I am talking about. This category is crucial to bringing the fireworks out. Have you seen black and white fireworks? They are a little hard to see.

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 2012 Independence Day Contest Winner badge that you can put on your profile

As the wise crow says, "Sitting on a fence is for the pigeons. Flying towards the prey is for raptures."

(I made that up just now, but it still sounds cool!)

Everyone who is confused about joining better not post here, or I am going to bombard you with more almost irrelevant quotes!

Yes, any OCs, family members, friends, fictional or not, etc are welcome in this contest! Although I list friends and family as being the main people, obviously, OCs are always welcome! They are the product of your artistic mind!

Since color is a category, you would be deducted some points, but on the exception that the art-piece is exceptional enough skill-wise, the color category can definitively be compromised.

For now, you can give me what you have, and then you can slowly edit it if you do have time!

Thanks for the interest! I totally want to see your entry level for the contest!
