Hi folks,

It's here. It's time. Max 330 Mega, Pro-Gear Spec, it's the . . .

:bulletblue: NEWS!

What bigger news could there be than--

:bulletred:THE SIXTH ANNUAL GMB/7SL CONTEST!--The contest where everyone who enters wins! :D :bulletred:

:bulletblue: PHASE ONE: The sign-up!

For my returning regulars, this will seem old hat. For the newcomers, here's how we do things:

Phase 1 is the sign-up. What you do is you respond to this journal with the link to the pic of who you want to draw. As people sign up, I post their names and character choices in the "contestants" section.

The characters can be found here:

  . . .and, naturally, my DA gallery as well. :)


:bulletblue: THE CONTESTANTS (so far):bulletblue:

Sorted by Contestant/Character Chosen/Their pic (when available)

:iconsimplemanat: /SimplemanAT -- Darken vs. Yrouel [7SL] --

:iconwanderingkotka: /Kabukikatze --Russalka --

:iconcelamowari: /Celamowari--

:iconenglisheddie: /Englisheddie--


:iconsyntheticplatypus: /SyntheticPlatypus --Sea Queen--



THE RULES:

1. For pics of one character, one character to an artist. This is so we don't have five pics of the same character as the entire contest.

2. Team-ups and crossover pics are allowed. Also, if someone is doing a single-character pic and you want to use the same character in a couples/crossover/whatever pic, I'll let you use that character, because it's not the same as a solo pic of the same guy.

3. DEADLINE FOR SIGN-UP: MARCH 11, 2010! (That's just the latest you can sign up--you don't have to have the pics done by then)

I have a five-entry sign-up minimum but more than five entries are allowed. :D The more the merrier!

THE PRIZES:

EVERYONE--One copy of the GUNMETAL BLACK, book, autographed if you want me to. You get this just for entering the contest, hence the whole "you enter, you win" hook. NOTE: Since a lot of my international entrants in years past, I will say it here--wherever you happen to live, I will send a book out to you if you ask for it. :)

FAN PRIZE: This is voted on by people who cruise by my journal (added last year because I had an amazing amount of quality entries and wanted to reward everyone) The winner of the fan prize gets a lineart pic done by me, :icongunmetalblack:.

GRAND PRIZE: A full-colour pic done by me, :icongunmetalblack: (NOTE: In case of female pics, breasts may not be of plausible size)

Oh and you get your artwork up on the respective sites in a special section with a link back to you and I talk you up to everyone I know. :)

The guy on the right is just a generic Jade Tiger robot--they're kind of the footsoldiers of that group. :)

Hmmm, well, I have zero ideas at the moment, but you can put me down for something. If worst comes to worst, I can always bow out gracefully.

I shall try to have a go at figuring out something this week. I've been juggling a lot of figurative balls, and my art hasn't exactly been something I've been focusing on.

I know what you mean, man . . .'ve been doing some tentaive art stuff, but it's not been as high a priority as it probably should have been.
