2. Contest Rules ~Read!~


a. Must depict a 2 OR MORE characters.  Thats two, not one! TWO (2) +.
b. Characters must be in a "daily life" scene- (I will NOT disqualify any entries for not adhering to the theme, but those that follow it will score higher- see below!)

FAQ!

f. How many entries can I submit?
-----Just one! Work hard on your best idea!
g. Can I use the cats?
----- As long as it includes at least 2 female, human characters. Artemis can be in the picture if he is a cat, but he doesn't count as one of the two characers.

Anyways, maybe i'll show you after it's finished anyway. ^_^

Yea, it kinda sucks but I started way later then everyone else as well. I do have the lineart finished but that's about it.

I'll feel better soon hopefully. Morning sickness doesn't last forever...<.< >.> In most cases. XD

^_^ I'll finish it eventually. I thought it was funny as hell, so I do want to finish it. ^_^

OH OH OH!
I NEED TO ENTER THIS.
I REALLY DO!
Oh I love Sailor Moon _so_ much :'> never tried to draw them, though DX

QUESTIONS!!
1: It doesn't have to be in manga/anime style, does it? <.<
2: Is it okay if I do a sort of...crossover? It's not _really_ a crossover but I was thinking of making an adaptation or use a certain image as inspiration DX and it's kind of a promotional picture for a TV show? It won't look excactly like the image! But yeah just thought I should ask x]
3: AND what does "ACEO" mean? 8(

THANK YOU

KoriMichele Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
1. It can be in ANY style!
2. It can certainly be inspired by another style/show/image, HOWEVER, you may only use female sailor moon characters and copying poses or posters directly is not encouraged and may dock you originality points. If you want to describe more clearly what you want to do to make sure it is okay, you can note me.
3. ACEO stands fro "Artist collectible editions and originals" essentially, it means 2.5 x 3.5 artist trading cards. =) Search for it on google or Deviant art and you'll see some examples!

Good luck, I look forward to your entry!

ONLY female characters? D: As in... no Mamoru? Augh! My entry has 2 female characters though, so is the inclusion of Mamoru going to deduct points? I'm a little confused on that. (When you said "female canon characters ONLY" I assumed you were just saying no fan-made characters, not that the picture can only feature girls... now I feel dumb ._. )
Reply
:iconkorimichele:
KoriMichele Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh, noooo I'm so sorry! Mamoru is not allowed to be in the picture. T_T I'm sorry, I tried to make it really clear. I did that so that artists would not be tempted to fall back on traditional lovey romantic situations.

I regret sounding harsh, but having him in the picture would disqualify it, because it is a rule, not a judging criteria.

I'm sorry, I hope you can still find a way to enter. *many frantic bows*

T_T I AM SO SORRY. I have no excuse, but I have reasons. I've moved this week and was doing updates in an internet cafe, and posted it without realizing it was Mamo. T_T I'm so stupid.

You will be eligible for peoples choice and I will send you a comic and some stickers to make up for my mistake. Can you note me your mailing address and I will send you some goodies?

I am so sorry, I should not have run a contest while moving. *so many bows* ARGH I am such a bad person!

It's ok it's ok. ^^; Please don't think I'm all that mad or anything! I was a little upset and confused this morning after having gotten your reply (since you added it to the list and also commented on it - so getting that response was like "Baroo? O_o"), but in the grand scheme of things it's not that big a deal. =P It's partially my fault for interperting the rules wrong. When you said "female CANON characters only!" I thought you meant no fan characters (aka "otaku senshi"). Now, if you'd said "FEMALE canon characters only!" I probably would have understood better, but again, things happen.

I appreciate your offer, but I don't want to seem like some big angry ogre that needs gifts to appease her. ^^; I'll just draw something new. There's still time. Just... eh... promise you'll look over peoples entries more carefully next time, ok? ^^;

Anyway, let's not worry about it. :) I'd rather win based on my talents anyway!~

Oh, oh yes, I will definitely pay attention from now on. Even if you aren't mad, you would have a right to be upset with me. I commented on it because I thought it was awesome. ^_^ I don't actually comment on all the entries, but I thought it was a really sweet and well rendered picture.

I don't think you are an angry ogre! I promise! But my offer still stands to send you some nice things for being so understanding about my error.

Good luck, then, and best wishes!

KoriMichele Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Right! A canon character is a character that exists in the series. It means NO made-up characters or fan-senshi. Don't worry, its not a stupid question and you're not even the first one to ask! Let me know if you need further clarification. I look forward to your entry!
