Have you ever wanted to be able to draw but were afraid to post your pics because they weren't good enough? In that case, welcome to the second edition of the Fanart-that-looks-drawn-by-a-five-year-o
Draw whatever scene you have always wanted to draw and forget about the quality because we don't want it here!
Here's a very brief summary of bases and stuff:
Entries: Every rating, genre, fandom, technic or whatever is allowed and encouraged as long as it looks crappy enough (although I'd rather avoid pics of real people or portraying kids in adult situations, please).
Submitting: Post your pic in the comments with a title, the fandom and a caption explaining what we're supposed to be seeing. You can send it to me so that I post it in your name.
Deadline for submission: October 20th.
Please, be aware that there's NC-17 content past the cut! This is not a contest for kids, it's a contest for people who can't draw to save their lives!
More details under the cut:
How does this work?
From September 25th to October 20th, you can post as many crappy pics as you want (only one per comment, please) here in the comments or send it to me via PM or email or whatever you want so that I can post it for you. Include a title, the fandom and a brief explanation or silly caption.
Everyone is allowed and encouraged to comment on people's masterworks.
There will be a handful of categories. Every fandom which gets five of more different participants will be granted a category. That means that categories this year aren't fixed, but they will depend on the participation. Every category will have a winner and a prize. Fandoms which aren't popular enough to get a category of their own will be gathered so that they still take part in the contest. Those categories will be "fandoms I love" "fandoms I like" "fandoms I hate" "fandoms I don't fucking know", or only "fandoms I know" and "fandoms I don't know" if there aren't enough entries.
As well as the fandom categories there will be some more: best NC-17, best Xover, best AU and the Special Award.
Unless someone disagrees (let me know), I'll be the only judge. Mostly because it's the easiest solution for me. My decisions will be influenced by the amount and enthusiasm showed in the comments each pic will receive. The exception to this is the Special Award who is granted by the audience's vote.
On October 21th, I'll make a post with all the pics ordered by fandom. From October 21th to November 1st, people will vote for their three favourite pics (exactly like last year). The winner will be... well, the winner (of the Special Award).
On November 2nd, a post with the winners will be published.
Prizes and stuff
The winner of every category will receive a prize. The prize will be something that cost me no money except for the shipping rates, so don't expect wonders. I'll give options to the winners via PM. The exception to this will be the Special Award (see below).
I'm a lazy ass, so it might take me up to a year to send you the prize. In fact, as I'm writing this I'm still finishing the ones I promised enigel and radio_phabada last year. But I'll end up sending them, I swear. Also, wispykitty, deathcomes4you and exponible never claimed their prizes! You're still in time. If you didn't receive my PM, please, let me know.
There's a sponsor this year (ha, ha, I marvel at the concept!), oracle_dreams has offered a gooooooooorgeous prize! : A felt "flat-doll" of the character the winner wants!! This is an example of what she can do: http://draelynnthered.livejournal.com/9363.html This will be the prize for the Special Award of the Audience because, as the name states, it's a Special Award!
Any doubt you have, please, ask me in a comment! Here I include some brief guidelines, you can help getting the list bigger by asking your own questions about it:
Text in the pics
Kinky stuff and NC-17 pics
Submissions in other people's name
Please, help me pimp this?
