April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 7, 2012, 11:49 PM
BULLETIN:

As a way to kick off April's coloring contest, we are once again hosting the 1/50 for 150 Raffle!  All you have to do is +Fav this journal, which puts you in a random drawing to win an easy 150 dA points!  Pretty easy, huh?  So easy and effortless, you'll probably wake up in a few days having completely forgotten, and wondering just who this color-me-club fellow is that's throwing random dA points at you.

There will be a winner added for each extra 50 +Fav's this journal receives.  So you have, at minimum, a one in fifty shot at winning!  However, the winner cap will be at 500 +Fav's, so get yourself in quickly to be in the first 500 before the cap is reached!

Of course, this whole raffle thing is just a big ol' ruse to stir up attention to an even bigger event.  Yep, already mentioned it earlier, but colorists unite(!) we're also kicking off our next coloring contest!



The :iconcolor-me-club: Presents:

April 'Sanctuary/Reach For The Stars' Color Contest:




Now that the voting period is over, we will now spend the remainder of April holding the color portion of the "Sanctuary/Reach For The Stars" color contest.

This month, you can select any one of the entries from the March Lineart Contest: vest.deviantart.com/favourites…

But if you'd like to select one of the winners from the March Lineart Contest, here are direct links and big images of them for you to browse!

PRIZES.

:bulletyellow: 1000 dA Points from vest
:bulletyellow: 2,000 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 100 points or more will also get a three-thumbnail feature in the color-me-club journal.


HOW IT WORKS.

The contest is simple.  Take any of the lines above or from this collection: vest.deviantart.com/favourites…, download the full resolution, print it off or open it in your favorite drawing program, and give it some color.  Entries will be accepted until May 1st.

Then, a four-day long voting period will be held between May 1st through the 4th.

All medium is accepted.  You can color these images with Photoshop, Painter, Gimp, OC, crayons, color pencils, markers, pastels, ZBrush, you name it.  If it colors, it's acceptable.


I'M DONE WITH COLOR.  NOW WHAT?

Once you have completed your colored version of the lines above, submit it to your DeviantArt gallery.  Then, send the color-me-club a note.  The note should be titled "APRIL COLOR CONTEST ENTRY," and the note needs to contain a [link] to your colored piece.


ANY SPECIAL RULES?

There are a few rules that need some going over.  First of all, you can only submit one entry.

You do NOT need to be a member of the color-me-club to participate.  This is open to everybody.  :thumbsup:

The same rules regarding coloring lineart in the color-me-club gallery still apply.  You can add to the image (environment, other effects, etc), but you cannot dramatically affect the lines in a way that completely changes them.  Also, do not remove or modify the signature or watermark on the image; that must stay.

Paintovers are acceptable.  You are free to even add details or completely redo other details, just as long as the general look and feel of the image still maintains that of the original lines.  Also remember that by doing a paintover, you are subject to the original line artist's demands; even if the lines aren't visible, their intended image and layout most certainly is.

You may resize the image however you need to as long as the contact information on the lineart is still legible.

Lastly, any users found to be pandering for votes will be disqualified.  You ARE allowed to state "I hope I win, wish me luck" on the image description.  However, you CANNOT say "everybody go to this [link] and send them a note voting for me" in any medium.  And by any medium, we mean ANY medium.  This includes:

-On the image description.
-On the image itself.
-On comments in that image, or other images.
-Journals.
-Your signature.
-Forum posts.
-Notes.
-Singing in the Back of Cop Cars.

Let the image speak for itself, and the best way to say "vote for me" is to put a laborious amount of love and tender work into your art.


All my blessings and best wishes to participants, and all my sincerest regards for best luck!  Here's hoping you too feel inspired to augment your coloring abilities and bolster them to reach for the stars, too!

Do you have any of the linearts that will format to print off as a full sheet of printer paper? I've tried by downloading it then printing and formatting and nothing has worked. I would really love to participate in this contest, but I need the picture to be printable.

When you print, is there a box you can check to "fit image to frame"?

If not, you can try saving the image then opening it in MS Paint. Go to "Page Setup," select "Portrait" (under "Orientation") and "Fit to: 1 by 1 page(s)" (under "Scaling") and that should do it. Hope that helps!

Just saying, I've seen people (in other contests) do the whole, "Vote for me!" thing through thier polls. Just thought that I would throw that out there.

Does that mean I can use this line art [link] ? And can I paint over the lines but, still have the drawing visibly remain the same? (I understand it is mentioned in the rules but, I need to double check to be assured ^^;)

I've been coloring Manga pages of Fairy Tail for a while haha XD
btw... are there any official colors in the following linearts??
or.. are the colors going to be up to the participant? :)
and one last question...
is it okay to change the line colors or just let it stay black?? :)

May I ask, how do you judge? I mean, there are a wide range of linearts to choose from, so do you judge per lineart? Like, 'who best colors this line art wins'?
