ENTRIES END AUGUST 31, 2012
.Character template: Okay, so it's my fault that I posted this shortly before I left on a business trip - which later turned into a family vacation that extended several weeks. So, allow me the chance to clarify certain questions I've been asked about this contest. ROUND QUESTIONSQ: I don't understand the rounds. Can you explain it to me?A: A visual example ( [link] ). Each round, the participants will be placed in a poll in which the audience can choose who they think will win against Aqua's OC (for that round). The winner will be decided by the highest amount of votes. That round's winner will proceed to the next round, while the second place winner will get a picture depicting the fight scene between their enrolled OC and Aqua's OC (for that round). Third place or lower will not receive anything. But the way it's looking right now, everyone will get a picture from Aqua. ; ) Q: Are the participants against the same opponent?A: No. The participants/Winners will always be against a different OC made by Aqua in each round. Q: Does Aqua's OC always win in each round? : / A: No. As a matter of fact, her OC will always lose and never proceed to the next round.Q: Can I choose who goes against who? Some of the opponents seem easier than others. A: No. This is because it opens the possibility of someone placing their badass OC against a puny kid. The judges will place them in as much fairness as we can. PRIZES QUESTIONSQ: Does the second place winners get a picture of their enrolled OC being defeated by Aqua's OC? :/ A: No. The pictures will be neutral - you can't tell who is winning or losing. The pictures will be dynamic in pose involving one ability from each OC, but one OC shall never be hammering down on another. Q: If you win the finals, what do you get?A: Two fully coloured pictures of your choice, and it doesn't even have to involve the enrolled OC - it can be whatever you want. Second place winner of the finals only gets one fully coloured picture of your choice. PARTICIPATION QUESTIONSQ: What are my chances of getting accepted?A: Right now: 99.99%. Guaranteed at least two pictures involving your enrolled OC, even if you lose - A redrawn full-body picture of the enrolled OC, and a dynamic action scene of enrolled OC vs. that round's opponent. Q: Can I use a pre-existing character? Or do I have to make a new one up for this contest?A: If you have an OC that's already made, you're more than welcome to use it! Ensure that the picture is full-body and that you use the character template with the necessary information on it though. : ) You can also make a new one just for this contest too.Q: Does it have to be fantasy or modern OCs?A: Whatever you want. Be as creative as you want. You can even have animals participate, or your personified self with some neat abilities. ; ) Q: I'm afraid to enroll because it's confusing and strict...A: We're all understanding. : ) If you have a question, it will be answered with care. Rules are not as strict as you might think, as a matter of fact, we're pretty lenient. If you have something wrong, we will tell you what the problem is to give you a second chance to change it so that you can enter. : ) Mistakes only make one person grow! (Like my mistake at making this way more complicated than I had initially suspected). Q: This is way too complicated. Why couldn't you have done the simple art contest? A: Because Aqua wants to draw. It's nice for her ego to receive pictures of her OCs during an art contest, but the purpose of this contest is for her to practice dynamic action poses and forces her to further develop her OCs.
