:star: For this contest you'll be drawing/writing about Mermaids!



- The contest is as simple as it sounds! Draw a mermaid or merman.

- The mermaid or merman must be part sea critter and part human. Any sea critter is good. It can be a specific fish, a whale, or even something like a crab. Let the imagination go free!

- The ratio of human to sea critter doesn't matter. You can have it be 90% fish with two human arms for all we care. Just go for it!

:star: Additional Points :star:
:bulletpurple: Draw 3 or more merpeople in your picture for +5 points
:bulletpurple: Uncommon character type: Include a merperson that's either old or overweight for +5 points
:bulletpurple: Include a pet for your merperson for +5 points
:star: You MUST include which points you included in your description so I don't have to do guesswork!

- 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.

- Don't copy Disney's Ariel, The Little Mermaid for Pete's sake. I'm tempted to make a no red-hair rule. XD

- Do not submit an old work of art. It must be new and created after this contest was put up [January 8th, 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.

- ***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 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 18 - Mermaids". 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:


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!
If you're willing to donate a subscription to one of the winners, just let us know! ^0^

My submission to the contest shows up both as number 11 and 12. 12 also have been credited with extra points, which my submission should not have.

Maybe you have the wrong picture for number 12 ?
