Journal Entry: Sat Jan 26, 2013, 10:31 AM


:bulletyellow: Contest now closed!: Sorry for being late, but thank you everyone for entering <3 I've still got a few entries to comment on, but that should be done by the end of today. I told people that I'd allow a two day fluctuation with the deadline for anyone that couldn't submit their entries under circumstances. So you have an extra two days-- until March 30 to ultimately submit your entry. Thank you so much for entering everyone, this contest has been a major success only because of your amazing hard work! I'm looking forward to judging all of the entries, even though it'll be really hard! Thanks for all your hard work, guys!

---------------------

:bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple: INTRODUCTION :bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple:
:flowerpot: Well guys, after years of having "Tajii Drawing" contests and hosting other random themed contests, I thought it was about time to do a "Design a Dress" themed contest! I'm considering this a mini contest simply because later on in the year, I'll host one with an assortment of characters. The main focus of this contest is the designing-- I'd like to see what you can come up with!
--------------------
ENTRIES:
Can be found down below as they're uploaded. First two are now up! :heart:
tajii-chan.deviantart.com/favo…
--------------------

:bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple: OBJECTIVE :bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple:

:flowerpot: The goal is simple. Draw my character Maria in a dress (Or outfit) that you have designed for her. She's my Goddess of Love, and also a party planner so anything that you think would suit those titles! Additional rules and requirements are listed below <3

:bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple:  RULES/REQUIREMENTS :bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple:

:bulletpurple:  Draw Maria!
:bulletpink: There doesn't need to be background BUT
:bulletpurple: It needs to be fully colored
:bulletpink: DRAW HER IN AN OUTFIT OF YOUR DESIGN :heart: (Doesn't necessarily have to be a dress, but make sure it's  something fitting of a Goddess of Love and/or Party Planner) It can be elegant, flashy, flamboyant, simple..
:bulletpurple: See her multi-colored hair? You CAN change her hair color to fit the colors of her dress. But keep in mind her position as a Goddess of Love/Party Planner. Multi-colored hair is probably preferred. DON'T change her eye color, though!
:bulletpink: When you're done with your entry, send it to me via note! In the description of your artwork, link back to this journal!
:bulletpurple: You can enter as MANY TIMES as you want ;)
:bulletpink: Any medium is allowed <3

:bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple: JUDGING :bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple:
Design is the main aspect of this but if you go all out and add a background and other details, it's expected that I take that into consideration <3

~+~ MARIA ~+~
:flowerpot: Maria is my Goddess of Love, eldest god in a story I'm writing called "A Hero's Tale". Over the course of many years she has used illusions to change her appearance often, to keep people from getting wary of her youth. Now, she currently resides in a small town where she has opened a smaller "Celebrations" Shop. Now, she works as a party planner, often dressing herself up in cheerful and colorful outfits. Personality wise, she's extremely cheerful and oftentimes very flirty. Her background story is rather depressing, given the fact that she's immortal.. but you don't need to touch on that //if you're interested, you can let me know though, haha ;w;

:bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple: PRIZES :bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletpurple:
As always, prizes are undecided >u<; If you would like to donate something, it's always seriously appreciated <3 Since this is meant to be a relatively small contest..
Edit: fjdslkfjsaklfd Thank you so much for the prize donations, guys!! ;___; <33

Probably within the following week :)

As for judging, the design is the biggest part but I also want to look at the overall execution of it as well >u< So like, the coloring job, the details and if there's a background the application of the background and if it works with the dress. But no, having a background won't necessarily give you a bunch of extra points, so I guess it's just really how effective and well drawn the design is ;) //I also keep in mind concept if there is one ouo

I almost finished it. but in the end there will be just one dress. maybe I will do other color variations, but not all outfits because then I wouldn´t make it in time.

If I choose to create more than one outfit for Maria, can I put them all in one complete deviation, or would you rather them be in different deviations?

Pleased to hear you're still pretty good :D :heart:.
I'm okay thanks. I've just worked it was fun.
and yesterday after work I danced with my dance school at a sponsor dance to collect money for the real show at the 29th of June. It was so much fun to do.
We also danced to dance, dance, dance. here is a video on youtube of how the dance goes: [link] . I'm not sure if it will be put up somewhere though because it has been filmed as well.

That's true it's been a while since we've talked. we're both so busy in our lifes.
