Countdown to November Lineart Contest

Sunday, November 30th @ 10:59pm

Throughout the month of November, the Color-Me-Club will be hosting the "Victorian" Lineart Contest. See the club blog for details and information on entering your contest submission!

November Linerart Contes - Victorian

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 13, 2014, 3:15 PM

The :iconcolor-me-club: Presents:

---==:star: THE  NOVEMBER LINEART CONTEST :star: ==---

According to a recent poll the color-me-club members seem to be quite interested in hosting a month around Victorian.

So have at it, folks!  But to make this really interesting, let's throw a prize into the mix, too!


:bulletyellow:700 points by the color-me-club (see donation poll on CMC-Donations's user page to contribute)


Submit your finished lines to your dA gallery, then send a note to the color-me-club.

Entitle the note "November Lineart Submission."  Inside of the note, include a [link] to your lineart.  That's it.  That's all you need to do to submit your entry to the lineart contest.


A few.

By contributing your lineart to this contest, you automatically agree to the rules listed herein, and give permission to the color-me-club to showcase your artwork in the color-me-club journal.

Only one entry per deviant.

Entries must be dated no earlier than November 1st, 2014.

Entries should be received by December 1st.  While we still accept entries through voting, you understand that late entries will be uploaded when the club is updated, and the artist will lose potential votes with a late entry.

The lineart must be your own.  Ripped or "sampled" lineart will be disqualified.  This includes tracing.  This does not include "referenced" images, you may use any image for reference.  As long as you don't trace an existing image directly, you're free to use any image for reference to help you create your work.

Winners of previous contests ARE allowed to participate.  There are no restraints for how often members can contribute.  The game here isn't about winning.  It's about creating.

You do not have to be a color-me-club member to participate.  This is open to the whole dA community!

Lastly, have only one artist submit the image.  Collaborative efforts are encouraged.  However, ensure the other collaborator knows the image will be submitted to the contest, and determine who will be representing the image.

Best of luck, everybody!
