The galleries will close automatically when August 31st turns into September 1st. I think the timezone is PDT (Los Angeles time).

I'm afraid not :slow: but you can just add a description of their original story in your contest entry (deviation description) so that we can read about her there and how/why she changed, that way you don't need to edit all your past submissions :)

 Can it be an OC made by two people? Someone else and me?

Yes :) Just make sure that your friend is ok with it, cause if you win, prizes won't be split (on our part, at least).

Is it alright if we create a backstory for an OC that we've drawn before July 12th, and then turn the tables? 
Reply
:iconrydi1689:
rydi1689 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No. The character's bio also needs to exist before the contest. If you create it now and then turn the tables, it makes no sense ^^;

You can include it in the original deviation featuring your character (the one submitted prior to July 12th).

Yes, you need to have a submission featuring your character dated prior to July 12th :)

What if your OC is 100%, but their name is based off of a book's logic?
Reply
:iconrydi1689:
rydi1689 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think that's ok, as long as nothing else is based off the book or its logic, or has any connection to it whatsoever.

They can have very little traits like the typical cat ears or tails, maybe wings, but don't go too far xD

..I thougth the character has to belong to the artist because I see a lot of entries of other people OC's which also don't even follow the theme of the "opposite role"
Reply
:iconrydi1689:
rydi1689 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah it must be the entrant's own character, if we find out the OC belongs to someone else, the entry will be disqualified. Don't worry we'll filter the entries :)

questions;;
Is it still alright if the original character is based on the pokemon world?
and if it is, can the drawing have pokemon in it? is the whole entry, with the original character and his pokemon, considered fanart and is ineligible as an entry?
thank you~

:iconrydi1689:
rydi1689 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm afraid your fan character isn't elligible for this contest. Entries can't have any fan art elements (like pokemons) and the characters have to be original and not related to any copyrighted universe :)

I just wanted to ask if my submission made it into the viewing page. For some reason, I entered the contest, but my submisson doesn't come up in the 'browse entries' thingy. Can other people see it, but I can't?

Yup, I checked and it's there :) Make sure to view the entries in "Most Popular of all time" mode, and your submission should appear in there. I saw it :3
