Countdown to October Color Contest

Friday, October 31st @ 11:59pm

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

October Color Contest has commenced!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 13, 2014, 6:15 PM

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


We are accepting donations for the October 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!


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

The :iconcolor-me-club: Presents:


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

Masquerade (for the color me contest) by Centi - :bulletblue: - Masquerade lineart by rachaelm5 - :bulletblue: - Masquerade by Mallagueta-Pepper - :bulletblue:

Yet for the October 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 September Lineart Contest!  Any September Entry can be used!

You can find all the lineart entries here:…

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 November 1st, and a voting period will be held afterward.


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

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.


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 "OCTOBER CONTEST ENTRY," and the note needs to contain a [link] to your colored image.


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 October 1st, 2014.

Entries should be received by November 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!
