1000 Watcher Contest

Journal Entry: Mon May 21, 2012, 2:29 PM



Okay, deadline's been reached and all entries are there.
I'm sorry for being late (had things on my mind), but I'll be announcing the results soon. <3 Thank you to all that participated!

Check out the Contest Entry folder in my favourites ;D



Now, we're not doing a livestream. No.
I'm officially hosting a CONTEST.


:bulletred:Remember Dream Mist? In part 26, it was said that there was no success in visualising Pokemon's dreams… Now, what if you could see? What if you could look into the dreams of the Pokemon?
Illustrate or write out your version of a Pokemon's dream!
:bulletred:

Basically: Think of a dream of a Pokemon within IBAW-Verse. Any team Pokemon and even dead Pokemon are allowed. Written entries are allowed.
A list of valid Pokemon: Champ, Pichie, Suchi, Nuria, Boffet, Veera, Naub, Divec Meya, Leon, Jo - but any others are also fine. As long as it's a Pokemon that specifically appeared in IBAW.
I actually don't want too much crack. Try and be serious. Creativity is fine, but stay true to the spirit of the comic.

:bulletred:Criteria:
:bulletblack: Creativity. This one's real big.
:bulletblack: The amount of thought put into the piece.
:bulletblack: The amount of effort put into the piece.
:bulletblack: Also, to a certain extent, but not as much as the others, the overall skill.
:bulletblack: Also, knowing the comic and the canon well is a plus. Very bad deviations from the canon will bring you minus points.

:bulletred: How to Submit
That's easy.
Just send me a NOTE with a LINK of your drawing/writing, saying it's for the contest. (Don't just put the writing in the Note. At least make it a journal entry, if not a deviation, because you technically should be proud of it.)
If you're not on DA, but on the Nuzlocke Forums - send me a Personal Message. In this case, I'll make an exception and you'll be able to include your entry right in the Message. C: If you do have an external link, that'd be great in order to properly showcase your work.

ONE entry in both writing and drawing. So you CAN submit BOTH, but not two drawings or two written pieces.

:bulletred:Deadline: 23rd of June.
I'll go by YOUR clock, so if it's still technically the 23rd of June by YOUR country and time zone, it's a valid entry.

:bulletred: Judges
Myself, aided by my ever faithful Corbillat and laquaza. I might take one or two other judges (you may apply for it in the comment section), but the criterium is that I know (or you can prove) that you know a lot about IBAW.

:bulletred:Prizes

Depending on the amount of entries, I might seperate Literature and drawings.

The Winner will get a choice between a A5 traditional artwork of their choice, sent to their house upon completion (by snail mail, of course),
OR a digital artwork of similar dimensions, on a topic of their choice, which unfortunately I cannot really send,
OR a larger collaboration art piece, given they're an artist (simply because I can't really collab-write that well).

If there are enough entries, I'm also giving away small digital commissions in this style for the second and third places:
Be A Good Boy by Wasserbienchen For Amarantha-Thea by Wasserbienchen For KariOhKi by Wasserbienchen

Oh, and… of course I'll feature you if you win. C: That's a given. And I'll give out honourable mentions either way.




… soo… what you waiting for? :'D

I'm lucky that I submitted when I did.

My internet crashed all of yesterday, if I'd waited till the last second, would have missed the deadline... definitely

That awkward moment where you realise your entry is still mainly in the lining phase and you have a wedding on the deadline date.

Well, guess I know what I'm doing tonight...

Wait a second, how do you measure creativity?

I secretly fear producing artwork that someone else already made, and then being called a fraud and a lazy copycat because of it...
Reply
:iconwasserbienchen:
Wasserbienchen Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Student General Artist
No, I don't "measure" creativity, it's more of a... well, general thing. If you have a great concept, then it's a plus, you know? Whereas if it's something more generic (whatever that may be) it won't be as highly valued, but maybe the executionis still brilliant?
It really depends. Just do your best. <:

Uh, there is already an entry that's not drawn on paper, so why the hell not. Do something that's in some way drawn and it counts.

Actually, I have a question that would help.
Are Pokemon generally considered the same species? I know the anime canon is yes, but you don't typically follow that.
Real life is confusing as well-- a species is defined as a group of similar-looking creatures that can interbreed. Pokemon have breeding groups.

I'm interested. I'll have to think about this.

For written pieces, how long are you hoping to see? Does it have a certain minimum length?

:iconwasserbienchen:
Wasserbienchen Featured By Owner May 21, 2012  Student General Artist
Ehh, no, I'm not setting any standards. Obviously, it should ideally be of a certain quality, but as long as it's quality work, three sentences or four paragraphs don't matter. Just send in the best you can do.
