:star: For this contest you'll be illustrating any fantasy/mythical creature under 2 ft (0.60m) in height!

Read on for more details!



- You can make up a creature or use an actual myth as your inspiration. If you use an actual myth/legend, you'll get 7 extra points toward your voting score.
Classic literature *does NOT* count as a myth or legend. Things like Hans Christian Anderson tales, Tolkien, etc. are not myths. If it has an original author who wrote it then it's most likely not a myth. Myths and legends are stories that develop over time by word of mouth to explain the supernatural.

- If you want those extra points, your story must be based in a specific myth or legend. It can't be something generic like "fairy". It would have to be "the fairy from the  ____ myth".

- The picture must include a creature under 2 ft (0.60m) in height (of course!) in your picture/literature.

- No fanart for movies/TV/video games this time.

- your picture can include other creatures over two feet in height, but the small one must be the focus.

- Do not submit an old work of art. It must be new and created after this contest was put up [May 17th, 2014]

- Do not copy/trace the work of somebody else. Your art must be completely your own.

- You can be as serious or comical as you want.

- Any medium is acceptable. Ex: Sculpture, Digital, traditional, costume... anything!

- Yes, that means writing/literature is allowed.

- When you submit your entry to deviantART, PLEASE mention that it's for the contest in this group somewhere in your description. Not because we need more promotion, but because there are a ton of people who submit to the wrong folder and don't even mean to try to enter the contest.
If you don't mention that your illustration is for this contest in the description, it will be removed from the folder.

- You may have up to two entries this time. But that's the limit.

- Keep it clean. Artistic nudity is allowed, but of course, no porn or really gross stuff. Keep it tasteful. If you have any questions about taste level, send us a note or leave a comment.

- You may enter the contest even if you're not a member. Just be sure to give us a link so we can add it.

- When you're done, post a comment with a link to your entry here, and I'll add it to the list.

- Also! I've created a folder for our new contest in the gallery called, "Contest 14 - Smaller Worlds". Be sure to submit there.

-When the contest is over, we'll put up a blog with all the entries on it, and the members will vote on which one they think is best.

- If you have any additional questions, either comment here, note the club, or note the owner, (Zimeta)





Three winners will be chosen by popular vote. If we exceed 20 entries, an additional 3 winners will be chosen by a panel of judges.
If you're interested in doing a prize request for one or more of the winners, just note or comment here!
If you're willing to donate a subscription to one of the winners, just let us know! ^0^
