Journal Entry: Sat Feb 2, 2013, 1:25 PM
Monthly Repeating Manga & Anime contest!

Edit: Last call for entries! Judging will be done in 18hours from now! Get your entries in asap! Winners and New theme for the Contest will be announced tomorrow! Hurry up! :D

Hello there again my darling snowflakes!
I'm very excited to announce that from now on, every month we will be hosting our Monthly Repeating Manga and Anime contest! I hope you'll have lots of fun with them! And if you have any idea for a contest theme, feel free to leave a comment here! :la:
A little F.A.Q before we get started :iconjumpingla-plz:

  • How does this work?
    Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it :la:
  • Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
    I'm afraid not :( Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
  • Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
    Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.

Alright! :la: Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness! :giggle:

February's Contest: Character Designs!:iconbummy3:

This month your task is to design a character based on the following plants or its names!

  • MidWinter Fire - Cornus sanguinea
  • Bleeding heart -  Lamprocapnos spectabilis
  • Jeweled Shooting Star - Dodecatheon amethystinum
  • Devil's Paintbrush - Hieracum aurantiacum
  • Chinese Lantern - Physalis alkekengi
  • Yellow Archangel - Lamiastrum sp.

You can choose one or more from the list, combine them in one piece or draw them separately, that's up to you! You can design the character based on the name or on the aspect of the plant :la: or both! You have free reign on that aspect! The character needs to resemble the plant or its name, if it doesn't then your entry might not qualify.

Rules :iconweekenddanceplz:

  • Entries must abide by deviantART's Terms of Service and Policies.
  • Entries must be made specifically for this contest. Pre-existing works won't be accepted.
  • Entries must be submitted to your deviantART Gallery.
  • Entries must be drawn in Manga & Anime style, with any media {Digital, traditional, mixed media, 3D...}
  • Entries must be original. Fan Art entries will be ineligible.
  • No collaborations allowed. Merely because we can't split the prizes in this contest.
  • Tracing, eye-balling or heavy-referencing from other artist works won't be allowed.

Don't be so hard on yourself :hug: it's a lovely drawing! You only need to specify in which plant you based your character in order for your entry to qualify :C Let me know <3

This contest's theme is to create a character based on the name or the appearance of one of the plants mentioned in the journal. If your character is not based on any of those plants, then it's not a valid entry. So tell me which plant you based your entry in :)

rydi1689 Feb 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

may I ask if semi realism is accepted? ^w^'
rydi1689 Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
can you show me a sample of what you consider to be semi-realism? Just to be sure if it'd be elligible :)
