:star: For this contest you'll be drawing/writing about Legends of the Sea!




- The contest is as simple as it sounds! Draw or write a myth or legend that has to do with the sea/ocean.

***Mermaids are NOT allowed in this contest because we recently had a contest for mermaids. So, you can't do anything that's half-human, half-fish. That being said, if you wanted to do something like half-human, half-octopus, you're good. Just... pretty much don't do something that looks like Ariel from The Little Mermaid. XD

- You may draw/write about something completely original or something based on an actual myth or legend.

- This being a fantasy group, you must include fantasy elements to your piece. In other words, you can't just draw a Great White Shark and enter it in the contest. What those fantasy elements might be are up to you- we won't be strict about it- you can even chose to make your fantasy element radical coloring. Just go for it!

- Preferably, if you're drawing something original, it'd be a good idea to have a story to go with it to go in your description.

:star: Extra Points :star:
These are ways to get extra points in the contest. Each are worth 5 extra points in your popular vote score.
:bulletpurple: Draw/write about or include a deep sea creature in your art/literature as a focal point. Deep sea creatures live below 1000 fathoms and are easily googled. Please leave a link to a picture of your chosen creature in your description.
:bulletpurple: Include a specific sea plant in your image with a link to a picture of the real thing.

- No vulgarity. Artistic nudity is fine.

- No fanart. All designs must be your own. Incorporating classical features of legendary characters into your art is fine, though.

- No literary characters. So nothing from Shakespeare or JM Barrie and the like.

- Do not submit an old work of art. It must be new and created after this contest was put up [November 29th, 2016]

- 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.

- For literature participants: don't make your story too long; the judges and voters can't spend too long going through your work. Aim for 15 pages or less.

- ***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. No porn, no fetishes. Keep it tasteful - Keep it PG13. 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 we'll add it to the list.

- Also, we've created a folder for our new contest in the gallery called, "Contest 20 - Legends of the Sea". 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)



:bulletred: Creativity! The best artwork won't necessarily win. The artist who thinks out of the box and puts in a ton of work will win.

:bulletred: Make a scene! Interaction, impact!

:bulletred:  Effort. The judges can really tell how much effort was put into an image.

:bulletred: Think outside the box!

:bulletred: Your panel of judges are:


:iconmistytang: :iconratscout: :iconzimeta: :iconpaavolongshanks: :iconkitsunechibi-chan:


Judges may enter too, if they want. But, you won't be up for the winning in the judge's section.





Three winners will be chosen by a panel of judges, and three will be chosen by popular vote. If we don't get up to 21 entries, we will take the popular vote section away.
If you're interested in doing a prize request for one or more of the winners, just note or comment here!
:star: If you're willing to donate a subscription to one of the winners, just let us know! :star:

How much longer until the decision is made on what we will be competing in, and is literature allowed? Is there a prize?

Soon!
Literature is always allowed. Prizes are always minimal (usually just a few art requests from volunteers)- contests here are for fun more than anything else.
