April Color Contest has Commenced!

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 8, 2014, 10:56 PM
BULLETIN:

The April Color Contest has started!  You can select from any image entered into the March Lineart Contest.  Details below!

Also.

We are accepting donations for the April Color Contest prize pool!  Let's get it nice and bolstered to really support all the artists who are contributing and pulling this monthly tradition together!



:iconcmc-donations:

Thanks to everyone who throws in a little extra to the club's prize pot!


The :iconcolor-me-club: Presents:

'Faeries/Winter vs Spring'




Throughout March, we held a lineart contest based around the themes of 'Faeries,' and 'Winter vs Spring' to draw on.  We got a fair number of entries, and after a voting period, determined our winners:


Equinox by QuestingRaven - :bulletblue: - The Breath of Spring by Sovalenka - :bulletblue: - I'll fight by EroTako - :bulletblue:

Yet for the April Color Contest, you don't have to select from just those winning entries.  Say you saw an entry last month you really loved, but it didn't win top three.  Not a problem!  You can use any entry from the March Lineart Contest!  Any January Entry can be used!

You can find all the lineart entries here: cmc-donations.deviantart.com/f…


Take any of those images, and give it some color.  All medium is accepted.  You can color these images with Photoshop, Painter, Gimp, OC, crayons, color pencils, markers, pastels, long exposure light painting photography, you name it.  If it colors, it's acceptable.

Then upload the finished colored image to your dA gallery.  Images will be accepted until May 1st, and a voting period will be held afterward.



PRIZES.

:bulletyellow: 800 dA Points from the color-me-club (Go to CMC-Donations to donate to the prize pool)
:bulletyellow: A drawing from FatalBlackRose69

If you'd like to donate a prize, use the donation widget on :iconcmc-donations:.  Donors to that prize pool will be featured in the color-me-club journal.  Donors of 50 points or more will also get a three-thumbnail feature in the color-me-club journal.



I'M DONE WITH THE COLOR.  NOW WHAT?

Once you have completed your coloring contest entry, submit it to your DeviantArt gallery.  Then, send the color-me-club a note.  The note should be titled "APRIL CONTEST ENTRY," and the note needs to contain a [link] to your colored image.


ANY SPECIAL RULES?

A few.

By contributing your artwork 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 April 1st, 2013.

Entries should be received by May 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.

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!

We promise to work with our members to ensure they all get their illustrated work placed in the color-me-club gallery.

We promise to keep focus on our members, and never exploit our membership or the club's expansive reach for our own gain.

We solemnly promise that this club isn't about us, the staff; it's about you the artists.

It's really hard to keep track of the lineart in the group without a search (within group) implemented...

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for a colourist for a superhero project that I have a publishing deal for with Lucha Comics. The deal would be $100 an issue for 5 issues and a 5% cut of the profits of the book. This would be a great opportunity to gain some experience and have your work published. Email me on tmcdougall80@gmail.com

I'm confused. Why was my work declined? I just double checked all the rules, including the line artist's, and don't see one area where I went wrong. Please explain. :/

Hey. Newb here. I've been digitally coloring for a few days, have only done a handful of sketches in my life- though I'm eager to learn so much more! I also love reading and writing. Art inspires me to write! (I colored the base that is my profile pic.)
