:rudolph: SILVARTA Winter 2006~2007 Contest:…
:cheese: Contest over as of 3/17/07.
:rudolph: Please submit pieces through dA notes, email (on contest page), or PM on SmackJeeves. Please do NOT post entries on the contest page, as there is a chance I may overlook them.

Extensions may be granted ONLY if you note me before the date and time above, and ONLY if you show me a mostly-finished piece.

Otherwise, it's over. C: I still can't believe so many people participated in my first contest. Thank you all so very much! :worship::party::love:

About Judging.

I will be using a rubric for each entry to ensure fairness. I will also choose several non-participant friends to choose their favorites to add extra points. C: If I note you, please respond! Dx That goes for most of you trusty RL people and a few online buddies. Just choose your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd favorites among the entries. ^^

Silvarta Winter Contest 06-07
Judging Criteria / weight of categories.

1. Effort [5] – Trying is important.
2. Character portrayal [5] – Although the characters have slightly ambiguous personalities at the moment, OOCness isn't exactly a good thing. ^^;
3. Emotion/Mood [7] – I value this most in a piece of art. Personal philosophy-type thing. C:
4. Originality [3] – If you think about it, it's really hard to be entirely original. But credits to those who can! ^-^
5. Awesomeness/liking the pic [7] – Well, of course. xD
6. Quality/technique [3] – For the sake of fairness. It's not a contest about who-can-draw-better, although it doesn't mean that the winner won't be talented. :)

Score [30]


Favorites of judges (friends).(+5, +4, +3)
Personal favorites (+3)

= Score [total possible: 30 + points earned from judges].
Highest scorer wins. :P


About Prizes.
I figured it wouldn't be fair if twenty-something people entered and only two won. Soooo.... Honorable Mentions! xD

:heart:1st Place: Full CG, 3 characters max, with background.

:heart:2nd Place: Full CG, 2 characters max, simple background.

:heart:Honorable Mentions (1~3 entries): CG, 1 character, no background.

Dx You so did not~! I love the characterization in your entry! :heart:

C: 'tis a labor of love.
crateshya Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007
Argh. *bashes head on desk* I shouldn't have procrastinated on this. D:
Blizz-Mii Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
^^; Ahaha. Sorry I can't extend the deadline further...
crateshya Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007
Nope, I pay the price. Ah, maybe next time...

Say, you still up for them comissions though? :D I won a contest and my friend said she'd be willing to pay for comissions up to 20$.
Blizz-Mii Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
^^; Yeah, I still do commissions here: [link]
Jiisuri Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007
Aww, if only I knew about this contest earlier...
Nevermind, I'll be looking forward to more of your stuff. ^^
Blizz-Mii Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
xD Heh, maybe I needed to get my contest more publicity. But thanks! C:
Shadilyn Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2007
:D Good luck to all the entrants. I really was planning on entering your contest, and I still have two Silvarta fanart sketches sitting in my folder D: Oh well, maybe I'll submit them later sometime as regular fanart. Meanwhile, I'm gonna go curse at my malfunctioning tablet nib.
Blizz-Mii Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, thank you! Maybe next time I won't have a seasonal contest. Winter's over, so it's kind of strange to have extensions into spring. ^^;
pseudopsych Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2007
I should've entered tthe contest, if only to receive the free headshot (thaaaaanos <3). Welp, anyhow, good luck with the judging @_@ looks like it's gonna be pretty difficult with all these entries
Blizz-Mii Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, I got so many Silv chara requests. It's kind of odd.

D: You're going to help, missy! Please? :>
Sirth-Osiris Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007  Student Writer
We that asked for our own characters was a nice break?
Blizz-Mii Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
^^; Yes, actually.
Sirth-Osiris Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2007  Student Writer
I still swear you captured Suzu perfectly.
