Design Aquatic OCs Winners announced!

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 12, 2012, 4:31 AM
Design me two aquatic OCs, win twice!
:iconsundayanarchy: 's First Contest



WINNERS of Design Aquatic OCs Contest
Only a handful joined the contest so I chose to judge the sets of category together as one instead of separately. I was hoping to get at least 20 entries when I started the contest last August, but since only eight (8) entries were submitted I got a lot more points to spare. So... I decided to give everyone who joined at least a token of those points. I am buying everyone's creations, nobody loses and it's a "win=win" situation!
My only request is that none of the eight (8) entries will be deleted by their creators, so that I can properly credit the original designs when I start using the characters.

TIME LINE

Starts:
August 11, 2012
Deadline: November 15, 2012 midnight (no extension) wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time…

Reason for the "no extension" policy?
The end date was originally Oct. 15, 2012, so I think a month of extension is enough!

:new: For second place to be included there must be at least 20 entries. For third place to be included there must be at least 40 entries. And so on... etc., etc.!

So, if you want to raise your chances of winning, be sure to encourage your friends to participate!


Theme

Aquatic Creatures drawn in two sets of category:

:bulletblack: hero
:bulletblack: villain


This a drawing / painting contest, so no writngs or photography or photomanipulations.

The contestant may choose to draw for just one category if he/she wishes to!

the pirates by sundayAnarchy
I'm currently constructing a story/comic/manga involving my pirate OCs fav.me/d5jahcl and, of course, sea creatures. Basically, I need eight sea creatures/tribe leaders to become part of my story/comic/manga. Their design must be original and extremely unique (please please please!) As of the moment, my mind is blank as to how to design such OCs. I need the community's help for this so I decided to make it a contest to also celebrate my 1 year in dA!

You are free to decide and design for your own. Be creative! Keep in mind that not all beautiful creatures are heroes and not all ugly ones are villains. Your imagination is your limitation!


BONUS!! By just submitting a valid entry, a contestant will automatically get 5 :points: at the end of the contest! If he/she submits 2 valid entries, 10 :points: will be given!

How to determine if your entry is valid? Read and follow all the Rules please!

Frequently Asked Questions

Both heroes? No.

Both villains? No.

One hero, one villain? Yes.

How can you know it's a hero or a villain? Say clearly in description.

Together in one drawing? No.

One character per entry? Yes.. So that they can be judged individually.

"2 entries" mean? Instead of just one deviation, you will submit TWO deviations.

If I submit a hero and a villain, that would count a "2" to the total, riight? Yes.

Are we required to submit two entries? No. It is only optional.

You may submit only one entry if you want to, BUT you have to choose the category: hero OR villain. Rule # 15 applies only when you want to submit to both category.

Background image? Not required, but you can paint if you want to.

Personality or history in description?
Not required, but you can write if you want to.

Minions? You decide.

Can the characters be related like relatives or friends or mortal enemies?
You decide. Again, character history is not required.

Can they have feet or paws instead of tail or tentacles?
Yes, but they must also have other body parts showing
that they belong to the water and they are not ordinary land dwellers.

Can they have animal ears like, for example, an usagimimi with a fishtail or like a werewolf with fins and scales?
What!? I've never heard or seen anything like that before! How can you see a werewolf's scales if he has fur all over his body? LOL! LOL! LOL!
Well i guess it's okay, as long as they have other body parts showing
that they belong to the water and they are not ordinary land dwellers.

With weapon BUT without armor? No. "Rule #12: Weapon and armor REQUIRED."

With armor BUT without weapon? No. "Rule #12: Weapon and armor REQUIRED."

Without armor and weapon? No. "Rule #12: Weapon and armor REQUIRED."

Should the character have some kind of an action?
You decide. The character can be doing something or simply posing.
What's important is to see the character design itself, like body parts, armor, weapons, etc.
It can even be a simple character sheet if you like!

Can we submit a collaboration? No, because this is an individual's contest.

Do i have to be a member of hellion-delta to submit my entry?
No. You do not have to be a member to submit your entry.
Note me with the thumb and/or link of your entry or comment the link here and i will invite your entry to the contest folder.

HI! Could you please, please, extend the deadline? Only a few days! I have a lot of work from school and I haven't had enough time to finish my entry... :( I know you said that there weren't to be any extensions but I discovered this contest a few days ago and my time has ran out... 1 or 3 days, I don't ask for more!
Thanks in advance

hmm.. I would love to extend it myself, too, just like you, but..

I would also want the winners to get a chance at the "buy 1, take 1" promo deviantART is having, which is, to double the months of premium membership to 1-year instead of just the 6-months included in my prize list.

Sadly, the promo ends Nov.17 so if I extend this, I won't be able to get the prizes out in time for the promo..

Hi, I totally forgot about the contest XD. Anyways, good thing there's an extended deadline then..speaking of the deadline, which time zone?

And also, is it alright if the weapon is already incorporated in the anatomy of the OC, or does it have to be a separate weapon?

Time zone? Hmm.. East Asia Pacific time, I guess? [link]

Deadline's Nov.15th but I'm gonna be receiving entries until Nov.16th so I can hand out premium memberships or :points: (whichever is chosen) before Nov.17th ends, so the winner can double his/her months of subscription (dA has the "double-sub" promo only until Nov.17th).

And yes! It is totally alright if the weapon is already in the anatomy of the OC, or the armor, so long as it can clearly be seen as a weapon (like Hellboy's arm, for example) and not just an ordinary limb.
