Contest Time - Draw Nyx

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 29, 2012, 12:16 AM

Final Update:  I apologize that this has taken so long.  I have had a lot of problems at home and with my computer.  There were only two entries in my contest so both entrants kind of won.  However :iconcoffeebuns: won first place.  The judging was close and she won by only a few points.  I am currently contacting the artists who volunteered prizes so that they know the winners and are reminded of  the contest.  I will also contact the winners personally with more information.  I will also have the contest entries posted in my gallery.  

Update:  Ok so apparently the link below is not working for some reason.  I tried updating the link and fixing it.  It works in the preview, but not when I publish it.  So here is the same link to Nyx's info.…

Hey folks!  Welcome to my contest journal.  The contest is to draw my character Nyx Lunae.  Everything about  her can be found in this journal entry… is a written description of her, and several references.

This contest is fairly simple with straight forward rules.

1)     Use the description from the journal, and references to draw my OC.
2)     The theme, style, background, clothing, etc. is all up to you. As long as her physical features match
           her description.
3)     The only limitation is no bondage and no vore.
4)     Be creative.  I'm hoping to see some great work.
5)     I would prefer color works, but I will accept all entries.
6)     Please contact me, by note, with any entries or interest in entering the contest.

That's all for the rules.  If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

The contest starts immediately and will continue until May 31st.  I may extend the deadline at my discretion.

Judging will be based on a point scale as follows
Each work will be able to receive a total of 40 points
10 points for fidelity, accuracy to the original concept, and to the character's appearance and personality.
10 points for artistic composition (is the composition interesting? are the elements well placed to produce
a nice result on the viewers? are the colors harmonic?)
10 points for creativity and originality.  How well did you stand out with your theme?  Did your personal
style show through?
10 points for finishing ("attention to details").  for example...A badly finished piece would be one in
which you can see that "it could be better if the artist gave more attention to some points of
the drawing"

When the contest is over all entries will be judged and graded by three judges :icondakartasoladon:, :iconsoniamatas:, and :iconmarkuro:.  There may be another judge but I am waiting to hear back from them.  All scores will be averaged and the winners will be declared

Places and prizes:
First 1 year premium membership + colored digital art from :iconcargirl64:
Second 6 month premium membership + lineart from :iconcargirl64:
Third 3 month premium membership

Honorable mentions, depending on number of entries, will receive a Journal Feature.

I could always use some donations to sweeten the prize pool.  If anyone would like to participate please let me know.

For those who participate in the contest ....Good luck!  For those who wish to help out ....thanks in advance!

hi again! i was wondering if you had decided the winner for the contest? if there's two entries it may be easier for you to pick 1st and 2nd yourself. Hope to hear back from you! :3

No unfortunately I have had issues with my computer and this is the first time I have been on in a while. I am going through my notes and if I don't have anything I will send them a reminder. I really apologize for the delay.
