The Mark of Death

The Mark of Death by DeusAetheros

If a character has been chosen a lot by other contestants, then it would be best to choose another. The last contest had 5 characters, but only 2 were ever drawn, which I was rather disappointed about.
_____________________

Not many rules and requirements. These are listed as so:

To Help The contest grow (Not required)

It will be helpful if you can spread the word about this contest as much as you can. It is to help you lot by having prizes increase as we gain more submissions.

It will be very helpful to be watching me, so you are aware of any changes or submission updates are made. Also tells you when the deadline is closing in.

rules

:new: You do not need to ask me to join the contest. Simply say in the comments that you want to join.

Like before, no submissions with porn, yaoi, yuri or fetish themes. I would rather avoid having my characters in such situations.

You are free to to change whatever you want with the character, aside from what is mentioned above.  The only thing is to try keep them recognizable.

For those who like fan work, or claim they cannot draw humans, then this is for you. You can do so. If they have to become non-humanoid. make their design along the lines of their references to help keep them recognisable.

The submission has to at least be coloured in with an outline. If you do lineless art, then as long as it isn't too much of a mess, it should be accepted. Shading and a background is a bonus.

You can make your submission either by digital or traditional means. Depending on how many entries I get, I will make these into separate categories.

Once you have finished, then upload the submission and send me a link to the deviation. The description simply has to link back to this journal. If you want to replace an existing submission of yours, let me know and I will replace it for you.
_____________________

what I will be looking for and other stuff to help you win

Dont rush the submission. You will have around 4 months to make it. If you get it finished and uploaded in one day, you went wrong somewhere. Take all the time you need during these months.

Try to keep them in-character. If you can keep them in-character as much as you can, then that will be a good sign you considered their bio. If you would like more information, ask me. For Eleanor and Mark of Death, note I do not have a set bio for them as of now, so I can only point you in the general direction regarding their personalities.

This isn't purely based on drawing talent, so the prettiest submission isn't going to be an instant win, but it does help. You have a good chance of winning if you use a very good theme or idea behind the submission. To help explain this, here is the winner of my previous contest, who used the entire of Vidal's backstory to make an epicly themed deviation: fav.me/d62zov3

The more, the better. If you draw more of my characters, or add character you own/know about, then that is a major plus. Have them interact with each other, how would they do so? Surprise me.
_____________________

Here are all of the submissions for the contest so far. There are currently 15 contestants and 6 submissions at the moment. The prizes will increase per 15 submissions uploaded.

1st place: 500 :points: (+250: points: per 15)

2nd place: 250 :points: (+100 :points: per 15)

3rd place: 100 :points: (+50 :points: per 15)

If I get at least 30 submissions, a 4th place runner up will be added and all winning places will be featured on my page for a month (or until the end of June, considering when my contest ends)

If you do not enter, but want to offer a prize, please note me. I will then consider on adding it to the list.

The contest's final deadline will be the 26th of May. I will not be making any extensions for anyone. Sorry.

You have a month left, so it should be enough time for you. I can understand you have other work to focus on, and how they have priority. Don't worry about it. c:

'Once you have finished, then upload the submission and send me a link to the deviation. The description simply has to link back to this journal. If you want to replace an existing submission of yours, let me know and I will replace it for you.'

That said, only one entry is allowed.

I have a contest entry prepared here with me!

Not long till' I submit it!

I'm planning to remake it into something different... I want to incorporate his backstory too- aside from his fear of the dark.

In Vidal's bio, may I ask on how the skeleton necromancer looks like? I may draw something about his backstory...
