Design a Halloween Character Contest!!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 14, 2013, 7:01 AM


Hello everyone!pikachu Rup cheeks plz 
Hallowe'en is creeping closer! Do you have any plans for the spookiest night of the year? We have the perfect deal for you!!

Design a Hallowe'en Character Contest!!

For this contest your task is to design a character based on one of the following Hallowe'en Creatures or Elements!

#Team Witches! witch by burari


What's a hallowe'en night without a witch brewing potions to absorb the life of innocent children? Conjuring up evil spells to steal your soul! Flying across the moon in their brooms?
If you decide to support #Team Witches you have to design a Witch enjoying the hallowe'en night!

#Team Ghosts

ghost girl by chuwenjie

During Hallowe'en night the ghosts of the departed return to this world to scare the living and spread the fear amongst the little ones! If you support #Team Ghosts your entry must contain a character design of a Ghost!

#Team Pumpkins

The Pumpkin King by RadoJavor

Without doubt, my favourite part of Hallowe'en are the Pumpkin patches and the Pumpkin headed scarecrows spookily smiling in the corn fields... If you decide to hail the Pumpkin King from the #Team Pumpkins, your task is to showcase your designing skills by creating a character based on Pumpkins!

WHY THE FUCK DOES IT HAVE TO BE A MANGA ANIME STYLE? I KNOW MOST PEOPLE ON HERE LIKE DRAWING GINOURMOUS SPARKLY EYES BUT IT'S NOT EVERYONE'S STYLE.

Please, calm down. There is no need to get so angry and be so rude to us. We don't deserve this treatment.

I see where you're coming from and I understand that you're concerned about the style limitation of this contest (which is closed by the way) but this contest was hosted by the Manga and Anime Volunteer Team, so it's perfectly understandable and even logical that it's restringed to only said style, for we are volunteers for this gallery and our efforts, contests and features are focused on that side of the art community: those who draw in manga and anime style.

There are many volunteers taking care of other fields of expertise including but not limited to photography, literature, cartoons & comics, artisan crafts, digital and traditional painting... etc. And everyone is hosting contests focused on those, so if you feel the Manga and Anime field isn't your thing, you can check what the other volunteers are up to and join their contests and events :)

We're an incredibly diverse team, you're sure to find something that fancies your taste! You can see the list of volunteers and the galleries that they take care of here fav.me/d3tbtyy

Nah, the contest galleries get filled with random artworks that have little to nothing to do with the contest. When the judging time comes, we'll filter the entries so that we only judge the elligible ones :3

Of course, it's open to everyone ^^ Remember that only characters based on one of the three teams will be elligible. #Witches #Ghosts and  #Pumpkins.

If your entry isn't based on one of the three elements, it won't be valid :3 Just a reminder.

Your entries are great but I wonder if they really qualify for this contest? The rules specify the characters have to be fullbody and neither of your entries feature a fullbody character, furthermore, you can only design characters based on one of the three teams specified in the journal #Witches #Ghosts or #Pumpkins and I don't really know to which team your entries belong...

You still have time until November 11th if you want to make changes.
