CHARACTERS YOU WILL BE DRAWING



HALLIE - FIRST TASTE'S MASCOT




CALE AND DUB + YOUR OWN OC!!!









1. Rules (May be updated; keep an eye out!) Police

 

    ·         To qualify for this contest, you must make a link to this contest in a journal, or watch :iconfirst-taste-chief: ; also, you can fav this journal or “Like” our Facebook, or our new Twitter page. Choose one or all! ;) (Wink)




    ·         All entries must be original, and cannot be traced, copied, or stolen; if you are found to have done any of these offenses, you will be immediately disqualified and banned from future events

  ·      We will allow references. However, you must link and credit the original source(s). If you do not, it breaks the above rule. Please also keep in mind that your entry will be judged based on its creativity

    ·         Your work of art must include any of the above characters (Hallie, or Cale and Dub)

    ·         ANIME AND SEMI-REALISM ARE THE PREFERABLE STYLES (if semi-realism, anime qualities must be easily identifiable)


  ·         Types of art you CAN DO: Digital, traditional, semi-realism, animation, pixel, plushie, and cosplay


  ·         CHIBIS are acceptable. However, you must include a background. They will be judged based on their originality, detail, and cuteness. Just note that you are more likely to win doing normal-sized characters.


   ·         NO adult content or any offending material in your art 


    ·         You can enter both of the themes. You have the chance to win in either one. However, if for some reason you win a top prize in both of them, one of the prizes will actually go to the recipient who was next in place for "1st" in that category. That way, we will still have 4 separate winners. (So, if you win the $120 in "Master and Apprentice" and $100 for "Ice Cream Variety", the $100 would go to whoever placed 2nd behind you in that theme, and the 2nd place prizes would go to those below him or her.)


·         You can do multiple entries for both themes

    ·         Judges will determine the winners based on effort, creativity, and skill. Your art will be judged by a scoring sheet accessible only to the judges.


   ·    Payment is the winner's choice (Points or PayPal)

 ·         For the "Ice Cream Variety" theme, you MUST list the number of flavors you showcase in your artwork








2. Romano (Mustache Laughs) [V1]  Themes (YOU CAN DO BOTH) Romano (Mustache Laughs) [V1] 

 


Commission poster contest by miacis83


    ·         “Ice Cream Variety” – The rule here is to create our mascot Hallie in the image of any of your favorite Ice Cream flavors, with different appearances (like changing her clothes, hair style, different flowers, and color)! However, she MUST keep her glasses and flowers, so she can be identified. Let’s use Hatsune Miku as an example. She can take on different forms such as “Fire Miku”, “Water Miku”, “Ice Miku”, etc. With Hallie, you would make her into different flavors like “Mint”, “Chocolate”, “Strawberry”, etc.

 


OR

 


Master and Apprentice Theme Poster - First Taste by First-Taste-Chief




    ·         “Master and Apprentice” – As an experienced Drifter, it is decided that Cale is ready to take on an apprentice. Choose your own OC, pick a “Mechon” or “Konpanion” if you wish, and head off with Cale and Dub to travel an industrial steampunk world and protect it from the Second Dark Age! You may have these characters travel and do anything they want. For example, are they visiting a city or village? Are they fighting a tough rival? Are they doing something funny? It's an open world for you to decide! (Read below in the Questions and Answers section for more on “Mechon” and “Konpanion”)


You may change Cale's attire, depending on the parts you choose to have them travel. Or, feel free to keep it as it is. They are world travelers after all - sometimes they will have to fit in with the people in that region!


As it is summer, yes, they can go to a beach. If you put Cale in a bikini though, remember: kid friendly, and no offending material (meaning nudity is not shown, and she cannot be busty; Cale is a respectable character. And make sure she has her revolver pistol and katana sword present somewhere; also it is a STEAMPUNK environment)
 

The basis of Cale and Dub's story: "Cale is an experienced gunslinger and young traveler, and though tainted with a past of terrible wrong-doings [ she is a mercenary / assassin ], is the best hope the world has. It is the duty of the Drifters, an ancient order of which Cale is a member of that defends the world from a second Dark Age, to remember the remnants that humans forget over time. Armed with a revolver pistol and katana sword, the greatest traveling technology of the age [a motorcycle], and a journal used to collect historical data for the Records [vast library of information the Drifters store data in], Cale begins a journey like no other: traveling the world to make unknown people and cultures known..."

The Second Dark Age entails as it says in the description - the Drifters have the duty of saving the world's history (or memories), before all human remnants are lost. Think of it like the Dark Ages after the Roman Empire fell.

Cale and Dub's journey is a travel to see life, and death. To experience things that most people experience, or things that they normally wouldn't. They are to fulfill the duty of the Drifters, and record humanity's activities for the next generations, to pass down stories and history of people.

what are the chances of a new contest during December ?   Also, for contests do u accept entries that are  in a artistically loose style or that style where u use only texture brushes to capture the essence/expressiveness of subject?
