Fall of Xephos Contest (Update 1)

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 25, 2012, 3:49 PM


Just a reminder, it's now December and Chapter 2 of the FoX comic series is underway (even when I said I would take a break from it, dear Notch!) : ) just letting you all have a reminder, first of many, to get to starting on those entries XD


:bulletred::bulletred: Fall of Xephos Contest :bulletred::bulletred:

Since the poll tells me that alot of you want a FoX contest I'm going to go for it and give yah all a contest...
Now judging from the poll the people whom want a contest is over 70 people, if I don't get at least a 4th of that (which is just 17 to 18 people) I'm pulling the contest and not going to have a second contest once the series is over.

The contest is simple -

There will be two catagories. Best Picture and Best Short Story and there must be at least 17 people entered for both to continue that particular catagory for contest or I will drop the catagory.

:bulletblue: Theme

FoX related. There will be no cross overs, no OCs, just those who are of the SoI universe, FoX universe, and Yogscast. However you like, drawn or story told however you like, just make the entry as pleasing and as attention catching as possible.

All Entries must be sent to me by note with the title "FOX Contest Entery" or the entry will not be accepted. Each person is allowed only 2 entries and ONLY 2 entries. Make them count.

:bulletblue: Picture Entry Rules

Please, no line art or scratch drawings. Can be either digital or traditional. No slashings please, you all should know by now how I feel about slashings. Pairings are fine "IF" they are cannon to the SoI universe.

:bulletblue: Short Story Entry Rules

Please, don't make your story longer than 2000 words. Do not present too many spelling or gramatical errors (makes it rather hard to read). Stay in the FoX or SoI universe please. No Slashings or explicitive writing. Be as expressive as you can. Make the short story easy to understand and fun to read. Capture your audiance with your writting.

:bulletwhite: Prizes :bulletwhite:

There will be a first prize for each catagory, if a catagory is dropped I will add prizes to the other catagory to give more people a change to win.

Grand Prize

-- A stand alone Digital/Traditional picture of any minecraft charactor or your pickings, drawn and fully colored by me. (Complete with written out traits and skills as like a profile picture, but if you want this off let me know).

-- A Digital/Traditional picture of what ever you want (up to two people in picture).

-- A charactor designed by you (whether it is your Minecraft charactor or not) to be seen in the up coming chapters of Shadow of Israphel - Fall of Xephos comic series as either a Yognought or an Israphel Cultist.


**Note - I will be adding more prizes later if one of the catagories is dropped**

:bulletblue: DEAD LINE

You have to the point where I get to Chapter 2, page 10 of FoX. Seeing how long I take to update pages people you got about...3 months or longer to get entries in.
REMEMBER - the contest will not go to judging if I do not get at least 17 people in one of the two catagories. If I get at least 17 people in both catagories then this will be a very fun contest : )

Good Luck everyone, happy drawing and writing!

I wish I could participate but if i try to enter it, we have to turn our scanner on and my dad only knows how to do it and he would start sticking his nose in my business to see where I thought of my drawing and it would end up to me being grounded.

Does the work itself have to be titled "FOX Contest Entery" or just the note?

Are we allowed to enter either two stories or two pieces of art? Or does it have to be one piece of art and one story?

Hey, is it OK if there's an OC that has a minor part (being told something) like being Honeydew's future son or something? I have a really good idea that'll only work if there's someone cute and innocent to talk to.

anything that isn't cannon to the story of SoI or FoX isn't allowed. If I see it there will be a disqualification :I sorry, that's just how it goes

*Rubs hands together* This is gonna be a good one! I've done a contest like this before, and didn't win. XD But that was when I was starting fresh on my writing skills. I never really had a firm grip on writing. And now, months later from that contest, I have a chaptered story done, many short stories in different genres, AND two stories going on right now (One on hold till the other is finished.) I think I have a better chance winning this. XD

Coming up with an idea for a Yogscast story is somehow very hard for me. XD But I think I can manage...somehow.

i have a question about the picture entry rules
why cant there be liner-art?
Reply
:icondordtchild:
DordtChild Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
because line art shows only one skill of an artist. I would love to see if one can use any medium to their advantage, displaying the best of your abilities. And Line Art is just like pencil work. If you ink and use hatching or shadowing in ink then that's not line art, that's ink work and I accept that
