WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 20, 2013, 12:59 AM


AND THE WINNERS ARE!

Third Place;

Freikorps by CapturedJoe by :iconcapturedjoe:
Quote: "You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain"
I liked this entry, as well as all of their entries for being based in history, this one in particular struck me 

Second Place;

How war starts? by 2-Fili by :icon2-fili:
Quote: "War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other"
This one was very simple in execution but hit the nail on the head

First Place;

Nightmare Fuel by forgottenpantaloons By :iconforgottenpantaloons:
Quote: "We stopped checking for monsters when we realized they were inside us"
this was probably the most used quote, and there were plenty of amazing entries for it, but this one was my absolute favorite


CONGRATULATIONS! I will make a Journal tomorrow featuring all entrants, as well as the honorable mentions!!

Winners, please get a hold of me so I can send you your prizes! :3

Well done everyone! Thanks for making this contest awesome ^_^





WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED THIS SUNDAY AND ALL PRIZES WILL (HOPEFULLY) BE DISTRIBUTED WITHIN A WEEK, pseudo-explanation here xite91.deviantart.com/journal/…


In case you haven't heard, due to an unfortunate mistake, I have to wait to get paid to hand out the prizes, which is about two weeks from now. Even though the contest is TECHNICALLY over, I don't feel it's fair to you guys that I get an extension to pay you, but you don't get an extension to do your entries, SO, until I announce the winners, you have the chance to finish your entries. I will not announce the winners till I can dish out prizes, and I will give you at least a day's notice before I announce the winners. Sorry for the inconvenience guys, thanks for all the help making this such a great contest! <3<3<3


A lot of people have asked for an extension, so here we are, you now have 2 more weeks to enter! Making the contest end on June 23, 2013!

Darn! we almost got that 100 favorites, but we have plenty of reasons to celebrate! For instance, we've hit 21 entries! So on to the 3rd tier of prizes!

So I have a question, are you guys all enjoying this contest as much as I am? because if you are and if you'd like, i can give an extension, just let me know if you want and for how long!

Now onto the good stuff!
THE WINNERS OF THE RANDOM RAFFLE ARE *drumroll*
FROM MY WATCHERS:  :iconbleunique:
FROM THE FAVORITES: :iconaoihide:
AND FROM THE COMMENTS: :iconanalillithbar:
As a prize winner, each of you have a choice between a 1 month premium membership, an equal number of points, or a character design digital painting from me (full body character, no background)

Once the winners are announced I will note you and you will have 1 week to claim your prize, if you do not by this time I will assume you are inactive and give the prize to someone else.



The idea is simple, i give you a list of quotes, you choose one that inspires you, and draw from that inspiration. 


~I've decided to add some prizes for GROUPS that feature my contest!~
Any group that creates a journal entry dedicated to my contest WITH A LINK (and, of course, notes me to let me know about it) will recieve 100 points, I've also added a random group premium membership prize for groups!


the people have spoken! (i'm finally getting around to this, sorry... :iconsweatplz:)

Deadline!
I want to give you guys a lot of time to make this a awesome as possible, so you'll have until June 23th to finish it

Rules;

I accidentally left out a few important rules, so i'll put them here;
 - NO TRACING other artworks, must be your original work
 - Bases CAN be used, but make sure the artist that created it knows and allows it (i will ask them) and make sure to credit them
 - Collab's are allowed, but make sure you know beforehand how you plan to split the prize
 - If it's visual artwork (non craft of course) i prefer it be "complete", as in full background and so on (color does not count as "complete" as i see complete black and white pieces all the time), but again, not a requirement, just a preference

 - Adhere to the rules of DA
 - It can be gory, graphic, all of that fun stuff, but remember to put a filter on it if it is!
 - Payment through paypal, if you don't have paypal we'll work something out (probably an equal amount of points)
 - I will not post where the quotes came from (i know some will be a bit obvious). I want you to use your imagination, please don't look it up, and try not to use where it came from if you can help it (i'm not so much looking for fanart)
 - Can be any medium of art, any at all! 
 - Contest open to DA members only, pretty much for my convenience... :D
 - I feel i'm giving plenty of quotes, so please don't take the liberty of using your own, if you'd like to use one not on the list, note me and if i think it should be added, i'll add it
 - The artist's comments for the deviation must have the quote used, as well as a link to this journal 
 - Watches and Favorites aren't ever required, but remember, this contest pays more with more entries, so getting it out there could mean you getting paid more
 - Anyone that creates a journal entry linking to this one will get 10 pts and a llama (if i haven't given you a llama already)
  - If you create a journal note me with a link to it
 - Note me with your contest entry, if you simply leave it here or on my wall i may miss it
 - Do NOT disrespect me or any entrants to this contest, anyone who insults another artist's work does not deserve to win the prize and will be disqualified (insulting and constructive criticism are two different things)
 - Anyone who does not adhere to the rules will be disqualified
 - HAVE FUN!

Prizes!!
 
Prizes will increase based on number of entries based on this chart (all prizes are in USD only)

it looks really cool! but i think it goes in the photomanipulation area instead of conceptual :3
Reply
:iconlashellevalentine:
LashelleValentine Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013  Student Photographer
Thanks!! I always have a problem with that because when I think of a photo-manipulation I usually picture art that has used stock photos. Since I didn't use any stock photos and combined multiple exposures I put it in the conceptual photography category :)

I know, I've been really swamped lately so i haven't been updating a lot. I'm also trying to decide what the increase in prizes will be, as I would love to give more than 3 prizes :3

Maybe some points/commissions/features to honorable mentions?

:iconxite91:
Xite91 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
that's what I'm considering, I want to do premium memberships for some honorable mentions and a few random pm's as well. But before I decide what I give, I have to get paid so I can figure out exactly how much I have to give :3

It's somehow my fault cuz I had got enough time but I didn't really use that opportunity and only started drawing when there was not much time left. But still I'll be looking forward for more contests. Even though I missed to be part of this one it still was fun to follow and look at those awesome entries.

i understand that, sometimes i lack motivation because the piece just doesn't appeal to me >.<

:iconkleinsinus:
kleinsinus Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
And sometimes people lack motivation cuz in their minds they have an epic picture ... and even if the drawing they did is good, it's still not as good as the picture in their minds. That's somehow disappointing ... and this disappointment steals motivation.

That's my case in this case! :D I'll learn my lesson from it! ^^
