Design Contest! CLOSED

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 27, 2012, 3:22 PM

Hello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/

The contest is design-based, and the theme is Nature's Twins
:star:What is 'Nature's Twins'?
    It is a small series that I draw. It consists of a human and animal counterpart bearing similarity in designs/physical traits.
Here are some examples:
Nature's Twins: Forest Spirit by glaciesClOvEr Nature's Twins: SeaHorse by glaciesClOvErNature's Twins: Le Roi Lion by glaciesClOvEr Nature's Twins: Paradise Birds by glaciesClOvEr
(These are merely examples, as mentioned below, you will be expected to design your own human/animal counterparts ^^ )

The goal is to design either a human or animal (or both, if you would like) as part of the Nature's Twins series.
For example, you can draw a person with a unique design and describe what kind of animal you had in mind in the artist's description, or vice versa. If you would like to do both the person and animal, that is more than welcomed!
Please take note that these designs are expected to be fullbody!
The deadline will be set at January 31st!

This part seems to need a bit of clarification. There are generally three choices/types of entries that you can create and submit.
    :bulletblue: You can design a humanized counter-part of said animal/creature, and describe the creature in the artist's description.
    :bulletgreen: You can design an animal counter-part, and describe some characteristics of the humanizied counterpart in the artist's description.
    :bulletpurple: You can draw both the humanized and animal counterparts in the same piece.
It's up to you how you would like to format and portray your entries; These are just some simple guidelines in case you are unsure of how you would like to do so. ^^

Please read all of the guidelines carefully before asking!

Guidelines for participants~
:star: It can be any drawing media (traditional, digital)
:star: You can enter a maximum of three designs/pieces
Please remember that the entry should be neat, so please consider carefully!
:star: Send me a note or comment with the url of your entry, and I'll add it to the entries folder~
:star: You can submit your entry to any group you want :>
:star: Drawing more than one character is welcomed, but it must be part of the design (such as twins, etc.) or the characters are to be considered separate entries.
:star: Please put the theme/design you made in the artist's comment/description when you submit your entry c:
:star: Notes regarding textures, colors, etc. are recommended
:star: The design must be made specifically for the contest! (You cannot use previous designs/characters/species for the entry)

:star: Please take note that drawing an already-existing animal by itself is not enough. Changes/edits/add-ons/interpretations/unique features MUST BE ADDED, otherwise I cannot consider it a proper entry. I apologize for not emphasizing this enough ;A;

:star:Commonly Asked Questions :star:
Q. Does the animal have to exist? Also, can it be from a movie, etc.?
    A. First of all, it is greatly encouraged that if you design your own animal/creature that it is not an existing animal. Also, your animal design can be inspired by other designs from a movie/series/etc., however it must ultimately be designed by you.
