Make sure that you read all the rules before considering to enter.
So one year back just before my leaving for America, I decided to buy a bootyful 3DS XL system in France. What a surprise it was once I arrived in Canada to discover that the 3DS is actually region locked, which led me to buy a new one there. Here I am all silly with two 3DS in my pockets now.
I decided to host an Art contest so one lucky butt among you may win the former 3DS I got, omg!Even Neigey is blown away
It is Brand New. I've never really used it, just happened to open the package and to turn it on once or twice and that's it. Not a single mark of use or scratch or whatever. It is completely new.IMPORTANT:
One thing that I must precise though. As said the 3DS is region locked. Everyone is free to enter, but the system might not be able to run the games you would buy locally if you happen to win. Remember that you can buy digital copies of games online with that nonetheless. Here's a map that shows the Region Lock of the 3DS that you may win; the proper regions are the green ones that symbolize the EUR Locking.
Here comes the exciting part! TEH CONTEST RULES AND THEME 8D
The main subject of the Contest will be... ~ The Indian Summer of Neige ~ Indian summer is a "season" that mainly occurs in North America. It refers to unusual heatwaves that happens during Fall and when temperatures happen to go above-to-normal ones, which may make you think of some kind of second Summer or late Summer.
Think about red, orange and all these Autumn-related colors. Think about heat and warmth too, it's called Summer after all. But also don't forget that Neige is a Winter-based character. Ah-ha! It's up to you to be creative and to find something to come up with that! Rules
Your entry must consist in 2 parts. One picture and one text.
- Lots of mediums are accepted for the picture. Can be traditional art, digital art, a still-image, an animation, a sculpture or whatever floats your butt as long as it's visual art.
- One text. Can be a story, a simple poem, something that gets along with the picture. It doesn't need to be very long, but it has to be a minimum of 300 characters. The text may be visible in the picture or simply in the description.
Your entry must include or refer to my character Neige. You can draw her in any style you want, anthro, cartoon, Sonic, realistic, your own personal style, it's very flexible. Human Neige is accepted too.Neige is a peaceful feline character. A bit shy but, mainly quiet; she doesn't talk more than necessary. She usually doesn't show a lot of emotions either so it might be hard to get how she's feeling or what she's thinking. But she may happen to be a little more expressive than usual at times too.
Optionaly, you may include one or several of the following characters that belong to my friends.
- (If you guys have more reliable references somewhere please let me know)
Finally, you can include your own character / OC / FC in your entry if you feel like it too!When you're done with your entry, simply post it on deviantART and send me a note so I can valid it.
The Contest starts NOW and ends on November the 2nd, 2014, 11:59:59 PM. You have a little bit over 6 weeks from now but remember that time flies fast. It might sound pretty short for some but I don't plan to stay in Europe for too long, so that's why. :') I have yet to think about the system I'm gonna use to define the winner, but I will announce who is this after a few days.
If some people want to help me out in order to add prizes for the 2nd and 3rd places, I wouldn't mind at all. Might be points or Arts, even a small thing. Feel free to send me a note if you're up for that. This Journal will be regularly updated as I get entries or more ideas about prizes or if I realize that some things need to be cleared up or whatever.
If you have any question, feel free to comment below.
I think that's all for now. Good Luck everyone!
