Title: Rules and Guidelines

flamekitty84 - July 4, 2007 09:22 PM (GMT)
Ok. The art contests are pretty self-explanatory. We give you the subject for the week, and you draw anything that has to do with the subject. Of course, being an art contest and since the boundries of art are limitless, we WILL have rules and regulations.

.:Not Permitted:.
-Hentai or offensive material. NO Complete nudity or extremely gorey pictures are allowed.
-Racism and discrimination are not permitted in any of your pieces...or anywhere else on this forum for that matter.
-We will NOT tolerate people making fun of other people's art and/or artistic skills. Everyone has their own style and way of doing things so do not make rude remarks about someone's art.
-No stealing from other artists. It is very rude to take someone else's work and claim it as your own. Make sure it is entirely your own work. Exceptions are if you drew the picture, but you asked someone else to color it. You still have to give them credit for the coloring part of the piece.
-No doodles or thrown-together-at-the-last-minute pictures. Of course we accept all pictures, but we have to draw the line somewhere. If we see that you really have tried and you put effort into it, you shouldn't have a problem.
-Make sure the quality of your art is decent and we can at least make out what was attempted. Large pictures should be hosted on an image hosting site and linked to. Small pictures are more than likely going to be hard to see, but if we can see it perfectly, then go ahead and post it directly on the forum. Linking is preffered so we don't stretch out the forum.

Thats pretty much it. Anyone who fails to abide by the rules above will be punished accordingly, whether it be a banning or simply a warning. I also want to mention how this is going to work.

We will post each week within a seperate topic and all artwork is to be posted within the current week. If you would like to post a piece of artwork featuring one of the previous subjects, please post it in the Fanart section as we will not take any more art after the deadline and the winners are announced.

Be sure to have all entries posted by Saturday night or early Sunday morning...I will usually look at the entries and judge them at around 10:00 Sunday Morning so be sure to have them all in by that time...I will also post the results withing the next half hour and I will begin the next contests by 1:00...hopefully...

I will go over each piece of art and "grade" it. Keep in mind the following points:
-Quality - Did you try and is it easy to see details and what it's a pcture of.
-Followed Rules - If you didn't follow the rules, I will not accept your art.
-Stayed on Subject - Yes I will be telling you what to draw but if you don't like it, you don't have to participate. Simple as that.
-Coloring - Color isn't required but it will help if you're planning on winning.
-Originality- I will be looking for creativity and original artworks. If i see you have just copied someones work, I will not accept it.

Also, the top three winners will be awarded according to the following:

1st place - 500 bits
2nd place - 300 bits
3rd place - 100 bitz

The bits are just a fun little way to keep score of your earnings, like collecting points. The Bits you have collected will be displayed under your avatar in all of your posts and in your profile next to "Member Title". I will manually add these bits to your "Bank" so please don't expect them to be displayed immediatly. If you have never participated in any of our bit-awarding contests, then your member title (Member, Moderator, etc) will be displayed instead of your Bank.
Being the nice person I am, I will award everyone who participates with 50 bits each. But just because I'm doing that doesn't mean you can go and throw together something just for the bits. At least try, and most importantly, Have Fun!!
