{CONTEST CLOSED}

Winners!!!!!

1ST: Kyarlinn with 98.5 points!

2ND: K_Pepper with 90 points!

3RD: Raindrops with 85 points!



Hello everyone! My name is Madame Penguin, and I wish to hold a Chinese New Year contest since I am Chinese and no one else is doing a similar contest. There are very important elements to the Chinese New Year such as red and firecrackers (the color and sound wards away the Nian) as well as other traditions such as Moon cakes and red envelops filled with some cash. There are many other elements you can add or omit, but just have fun learning the culture!



Theme: MUST have a snake motif somewhere, have the color red, and have an oriental feel
Now the snake doesn't have to be obvious, just there. Red has to appear somewhere, but doesn't have to be the main color. If you include any of the elements I mentioned in my beginning summary, then you get 1 extra bonus point.

Entries: Only one entry will be judged

Deadline: CLOSED

Prizes: 1st - Fully colored personal request sent electronically or by mail if you want the original, 2nd - Black and White with background request, 3rd - Black and White character of your choosing (no background)
All get bragging rights!

Medium: Any (including but not limited to pencils, inks, photography, clay, photoshop, etc.)

Extra Requirements: Contest pictures can be entered into other contests so long as you have permission from the other host. NO PRE-EXISTING ART ALREADY POSTED ON HERE BEFORE THE DATE I POST THIS CONTEST CAN BE USED. I really would like to see some new art from all you amazing people out there! No rating limit, so anything goes.
If I don't get enough entries, those that do enter will get whatever wasn't given to the 3rd or 2nd place winners or however that turns out.

How to "correctly" enter the picture: Post you picture on fanart central, then post your link to the picture on this thread (and my profile if you want).

How I will judge:
Based on a 100 point system
Use of Theme (50 points)
Correct Representation of this Culture (25 points)
Originality (15 points)
Use of Other Characters/Zodiacs (10 points)
Extra Bonus Tiebreaker (4 points)

Current entries:

I'm interested in this too. :3 If I have some time, I might draw something. If you're having trouble getting entries, maybe you should try what Luckylace does and post a piece of artwork advertising it?

I want to try too! I agree with K_Pepper. Posting a contest picture will get a lot more attention.

Yeah I did a little sketch earlier, and I'm going to probably do a full blown art one probably by Friday. I'll probably post the sketch later today :3 Thanks for the suggestions! Also thank you for participating~

Falconlobo: A motif is just a common theme that appears a lot. As for your entries, I'll take your touch up one since you prefer it Smile

Everyone else: I might extend the deadline by a week!

Well my picture can be found here:
http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/MadamePenguin/829671/Happy-Year-of-Snake

It obviously didn't get much attention, but otherwise I think it turned out fine Smile
In regards to the requirements, it has a snake, it is red, it is interacting with a dragon which is one of the other years, and has a watercolor background to help emphasize the paintbrush look that is symbolic of the way they write sometimes (also shown in the first post when painting the snake). Make sure to watch the talons on the dragon's feet though. Unfortunately I couldn't remember if it was 3 or 5 talons in China, so I stuck with 3 but then I realized it was 5 so that means I would get a deduction in the cultural aspect. Then again talons can also symbolize status in the Chinese hierarchy...
