It's here. It's time. Max 330 Mega, Pro-Gear Spec, it's the . . .
What bigger news could there be than--
THE SIXTH ANNUAL GMB/7SL CONTEST!--The contest where everyone who enters wins!
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:
SEVEN SPHERES LEGEND
. . .and, naturally, my DA gallery as well.
THE CONTESTANTS (so far)
Sorted by Contestant/Character Chosen/Their pic (when available)
/SimplemanAT -- Darken vs. Yrouel [7SL] --
/Kabukikatze --Russalka --
/SyntheticPlatypus --Sea Queen--
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. The more the merrier!
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, .
GRAND PRIZE: A full-colour pic done by me, (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.

Thanks everyone for the comments and the faves, I really appreciate them and take great care to answer each and every one.
I would like to do your Sea Queen, this year.
Well I am always up to this challenge!
Im pretty busy this year but I can always make time for this contest I havn't decided what to do yet, but i'll be sure to message back when I have thought of something
Sure! I'll update the standings and leave a slot for when you make your choice.
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.
Oh snap! I like it when people go obscure on me and it's awesome. I'll update the standings!
long time no speak I know, but how bout a versus pic....Yrouel and Darken?
