Countdown to August Color Contest

Sunday, August 31st @ 11:59pm

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

August Color Contest has commenced!

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 11, 2014, 3:35 AM
BULLETIN:

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

Also.

We are accepting donations for the August 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:

'Legends'




Throughout July, we held a lineart contest based around the theme of 'Lost in the Forest' to draw on.  We got a fair number of entries, and after a voting period, determined our winners:


Faery Queen by TokiSeraph - :bulletblue: - Lost in the foreset lineart by FeliciaSilvermoon - :bulletblue: - Lost in forest by Scarletmcd - :bulletblue:

Yet for the August 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 July Lineart Contest!  Any July 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 September 1st, and a voting period will be held afterward.



PRIZES.

:bulletyellow: 700 dA Points from the color-me-club (Go to CMC-Donations to donate to the prize pool)
:bulletyellow: A drawing from Pocketstash

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 "AUGUST 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 August 1st, 2014.

Entries should be received by September 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!

A question: If you send a note with your submission for the contest, will you get some sort of answer to know that it has been delivered properly?
