It's contest time!

I'm really happy to be hosting my second contest!The theme this time will be...


Basically, you just need to draw a picture that has some sort of contrast in it. It can be pretty much ANYTHING. It could be a colour contrast, such as light/dark or warm/cold, it could be a concept contrast such as a punk Alice in wonderland or even a Biker crying with a teddy bear! If you want to go deeper, it can even be just a contrast of what you usually draw, such as a change in style, or drawing something girly if you never do normally.

In this picture I used a colour contrast between the character (warm) and the background (cold), and a style contrast!

Your goal:

-To come up with the most original or wacky contrast you can think of!
-To try to portray it best you can!
-Be creative!

I really like contest themes that give alot to work with, and I think you guys do too, so here you go! xD

-Creativity of course! The wackier or more contrasted the better!
-Aesthetics! They don't count that much for the contest, but no blank backgrounds please D:
-Effort! At least try and put more than 10 minutes into your entry D:


1st: colored picture of your choice
2nd: lineart (to colour if you want :3) of your choice
3rd: Sketch of your choice

All entries must be submitted before the 22nd of January! (Thanks to Faeriemagic for reminding me smiley )

If you have any questions, just comment!

Thanks for reading, and good luck to all!

If any of you guys were wondering, Cupoftea gave me permission to start my contest, I'm not bumping >.<

It's the 27th! Time for contest results!

All of the few entries that were submitted were awesome, and I had a pretty hard time choosing which version of the character I liked the most.

So anyway, here's the winners!

1st place: Origamy Lily
Your character was VERY believable, and the way you drew her really made me think she could be a real person. The art itself was also fantastic, and you obviously put alot of effort into the drawing as well as the background!
You win a fullbody picture with a decent background with SAI (kind of like photoshop) or on oekaki!

Second place: Tie!

Faeriemagic:Your entry was great! It had a pretty good background, and the nosebleed guy made me laugh xD You gave a very good description of the character, and I found it really expressed a person with the traits I gave you but with a different twist. I really liked the art of course, it was very clean and pretty!
You won a waist-up picture with a decent background on oekaki!

Cory get out of my house: Do I even have to say why I freaking loved this character? Not really. Because my head exploded when I saw him. He's adorable and quirky, and I love the way you drew his expression. He looks just perfect for the personality! Gah I can't get over it >3< The only thing that wasn't perfect with it was that there wasn't really a background, but the rest made up for it. Love you and your fantabulous art <3
You won a waist-up picture with a decent background on oekaki

Third place: Deadresident
I loved your character! He was really unique, and I love the idea of him bing a ghost. The colours you chose went very well together, and his expression really brough out the personality. I really liked his past, and I though it really fit well with his appearance. All in all, I think he was super cool and unique :3
You won a bust-up picture on oekaki!

Honorable mentions: EVERYONE xD

Congratz to all the winners! This was my first contest, and it was really fun, and I hope you guys liked it too! Thankyou to all of those who entered!

The winners can message me with what they want smiley

Origami Lily @ Wednesday, July 27th 2011, 1:52 PM
Wow ^^
I think everyone did a wonderful job on their character creation, good job everybody!
sour_cherry @ Wednesday, July 27th 2011, 2:01 PM
Congrats to everybody~~~!!!
Sorry I couldn't enter ;u; I really wanted to, but I was too busy.

So next up is mjollnir, right?

Crivannia @ Wednesday, July 13th 2011, 7:58 PM
Hey everyone! It's my turn for the contest 8D

This contest's theme is one that I only came up with a few days ago: I'm giving out a "personality" or a type of person, and your job is to use your creativity to create a character based on the traits I gave you! Simple enough... I think o.o

Basically I wanted to let you guys use your character design skills (cause you all have some smiley) and your ability to create within a few rules.

Entries will be judged on overall aesthetics, how well you represent the personality given out and composition/how complete the picture looks. (No blanc backrounds please! They obviously don't have to be amazing, but blank spaces are a no-no)

Please if you can, write a short description of your character to go along with your picture, so we know a bit about them smiley

The contest ends at 12:01 the 27th (07/27/2011) and the winners will be posted later that day. (So basically post you entries by the 26th)

1st place: One fullbody colored picture of anyone you choose with a decent backround smiley (can be ether oekaki or SAI)
2nd place: One waist-up colored picture of anyone you choose with a decent backround.(Oekaki)
3rd place: One bust-up/portrait of anyone you choose with a simple backround. (Oekaki)

The personality you guys will be using is a male, female, chimera, or whatever you like that has these traits:

-Pompous (huge ego, loves boasting)
-Loves to try to "hit" on other people

I hope that's clear enough, if you have any questions, well... ask them xD

Good Luck to everyone!
faerimagic @ Wednesday, July 13th 2011, 11:07 PM
lol, those traits somehow remind me of Tamaki from Ouran High School Contest Club. (Gotta steer away from that, then...orz)

But very neat contest idea. I hope I have enough time to do it. smiley

EDIT: One of those traits, or all of them?

EDIT: Wait, wut, I wrote contest instead of club...

(Edited on July 13, 2011, 11:09 pm)
Crivannia @ Wednesday, July 13th 2011, 11:26 PM
Haha, I guess so, but that wasn't my intention xD

Yes, your character needs to embody all of them! Or at least the most you can smiley I hope you can enter!
deadresident @ Thursday, July 14th 2011, 1:44 AM

i'll start on saturday!

Yeah, bigger canvas will be in order, at least for what I'm plannig to do!

I hope I don't forget or end up making a mediocre pic instead xD

EDIT: Ugh... Today was terrible.God I feel like I became 10 times worse after one drawing x.x

Basically, I started a really awesome drawing, then the power went out and I had to restart. Then when I was going to restart, there was a storm/tornado warning and I was pretty much racing against the clock because today was the last day for it.

So I'm stuck with this fail, lol...xD

Here's the link to the final pic, since Chibi paint decided to backfire when I tried to upload:

sketch for the contest :3 obviously a WIP xD take about half an hour off the timer already, I was doing other things and finding a ref for the castle xD

edit1: Still a WIP lineart is done Oh, and yeah that's some really bad foreshortening on the axe :3 xD
edit2: Finished the backround :3
edit3: Started to colour xD (I'm sorry for all the safety saves, I do NOT want to love any of it, especially the mail xD)
edit4: OMG....The layers MERGED. FML. I found a way to work around it though, butit takes like 3 times longer than if I still had the layers xD oh well, I am determined to finish this, since it's one of the only pictures with a decent backround I've ever done >:I

FINALSEXYEDIT: OMG finally done smiley Timer lies by lik half, since I basically had to go over almost the entire coloring twice, cause of the merging ._. It really ticks me off when in games the female characters all end up in metal I drew a girl in epicly-non-revealing armor smiley
Chomikness @ Monday, June 6th 2011, 10:04 PM
whoa those clouds and the water are so realistic omigod :O
Crivannia @ Monday, June 6th 2011, 10:10 PM
Thankyou <3 I love drawing water in chibi paint :3
mjollnir @ Monday, June 6th 2011, 11:08 PM
Crivannia, you are making this difficult for me, aren't you?
Crivannia @ Tuesday, June 7th 2011, 8:11 AM
Haha, no I just like drawing random armours and stuff :3 I've been doing so since I was like 9 xD

IMO this one has way too many gems on the breastplate though ._.
PheonixChild @ Tuesday, June 7th 2011, 12:05 PM

okay it's official.....we need like buttons for each picture....and if we had them I would hit it a hundred times for this picture!!!!!!! woot! smiley smiley smiley smiley smiley smiley smiley

while realistically a person might not have a lot of gems on their armor, fictionally it's possible smiley and very very very very very very very (did i say very yet?) awesome! smiley and that's not to even mention your bg skills and coloring skills and design skills and all around awesomness skills! good luck with the contest!

edit: about your final edit: I absolutly agree with you on the bikini thing smiley it's like they're saying that girls aren't good for anything but looking pretty so they'd better stay out of the line of fire.... YEAH RIGHT have they not ever seen a ticked off female hammering the stuff out of the bad guy? all his fancy armor is worth ziltch when he makes a girl mad lol

(Edited on June 9, 2011, 11:30 am)
edit edit: and no I'm not a feminist.......guys are stronger than girls .......but still girls are really ferocious......right...right????

Zoe @ Tuesday, June 7th 2011, 3:58 PM
sdalkjfhsd This is so awesome so far!
This came out TOTALLY AWESOMEEEE! I love her armor!

As someone who's characters' armor are, well, ineffective in terms of protection (for the most part), I don't see it as a "LOL GIRLS JUST HAVE TO STAY BY THE SIDELINE AND LOOK GUD". My characters in my mind are totally BA, they don't need tons of armor to prevent themselves from getting injured. (While at the same time lookin' sexiiii.) And I'm not a feminist, but I'd say that while women do not have the PHYSICAL strength to match a man, women are JUST as strong as people. And that saying that women are weak is kinda sexist. I know some pretty bad ass women that can kick some serious butt. (Sorry for invading your picture. <,<;)
Crivannia @ Tuesday, June 7th 2011, 5:24 PM
Thanks so much both of you <3
Rhapsii @ Sunday, June 12th 2011, 8:26 AM
unf this is so cool. <333 you do such amazing chainmail.

on the topic of half naked soldier chicks: obviously i am guilty. xDDD but i dont draw girls half naked to degrade them..simply because i love to draw the human figure especially a bit of a feminist (i wont lie) long as the chick is fcking badass as all hell then it seems acceptable lol.
Crivannia @ Sunday, June 12th 2011, 10:06 AM
@Rhaps thanks hun <3

And yeah, I do have characters that arent' really wearing...effective protection xD but I don't really have a problem with that, I just have a problem with ALL of the female armours in games being metal bikinis when the same version on males is a huge-looking epicly bulky armor. It's just unfair for wierd girls like me who love bulky armours for some reason xD
Rhapsii @ Sunday, June 12th 2011, 10:07 AM
im a sucker for really fcking bulky female bikini armour. like. wicked bulky.

I was going to draw him as purely human, but then I thought... Big-a** wings would look pretty good right about now xD (one problem, I can't draw wings ._.)

I hope he looks enough like the pokémon smiley

The sun is hot
The air was dry
Kites and planes flying through the sky
But no one felt like I did that day
Today was the day we would move away

Laughter can be heard aloud
While I stay hidden in a shroud
Painful and dark despite the day
For today was the day we would move away...

I come from a military family, so moving often is a reality and we do move often, this year I just arrived to where I live now, which is 30 hours by car away from my previous home. It does happen often, but it never does get any easier...

I hope this counts for the contest, CnC and fullview

P-S: Yes, I did write that poem just now.
pajamajam @ Friday, February 4th 2011, 11:32 PM
I live in an Army town, so I kind of see the other side of it. I've made some really great friends only to have them PCS somewhere else. You say you'll keep in touch and you actually do so for a while, but life intervenes and you grow further and further apart and eventually all you know of them is what you read on Facebook.

You did a really great job on the picture. I love the little details, like the hair and the wood grain.

I'm not in a military family/army town, but I can relate about moving. I've moved about 8 times in my life. It's kinda sad to leave behind all your friends. :'(
