:star: For this contest you'll be illustrating a myth in winter!
This contest also has bonus points you can gain for the popular vote and judge's sections!

Read on for more details!



- The myths in you include must be an actual myth - not a made up one!

- No movie fanart.

- The myth/legend you draw must include something pertaining to winter. Cold weather or holidays is perfect!

- The myth you decide to illustrate doesn't have to really take place in winter in the original story. Just make it take place in winter!

- Of course, there are also plenty of myths about winter. Just google it, baby. It's good stuff!

- Do not submit an old work of art. It must be new and created after this contest was put up [November 5th, 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.

:star: Bonus points! You will get bonus points (say 5 points) for each of these things you include:

:bulletblue: Snow
:bulletblue: Something that glows (fire, lights, anything luminous - even snow if you illustrate it that way!)
:bulletblue: Includes the colors red, white, and green
:bulletblue: Takes place at night
:bulletblue: Has something transparent (ice, a window, etc.)
:bulletblue: Contains a romantic couple
:bulletyellow: Please write which of these you've included in your deviation description so I don't miss any!

- 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 15 - Myths in Winter". 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^
