We haven't done a raffle in a while, so let's get one rolling! We will be holding a 1/50 for 150 raffle right now (yes, now, as in while you're reading this you are wasting precious seconds at winning right this very minute RIGHT NOW
). All you have to do is +Fav this journal entry to get your name in the running.
For every 50 people who +Fav this article, I will give a randomly selected deviant 150 dA points (maximum is 500 faves, so I don't bankrupt myself again). The raffle's names will be drawn on April 9, 2013.
"But Vest, you cantankerous purveyor of sporadic generosity," you muse whilst nursing a hearty stein of frothy cider, "what noble deed have we done to warrant such insanity!?"
Because I think you handsome cads deserve some much-overdue recognition for being the dapper rapscallions you are.
Oh. And to shamelessly promote the April "Twisted Fairy Tales" coloring contest.
The April Color Contest has started! You can select from any image entered into the March Lineart Contest. Details below!
We have the top three from the March Contest narrowed down, but we don't have a definitive winner yet. Go to [this poll]
and get that vote into help pick a winner!
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!
Thanks to everyone who throws in a little extra to the club's prize pot!
'Twisted Fairy Tales / Mirrors' Coloring Contest
Throughout March, we held a lineart contest based around the themes of 'Twisted Fairy Tales' and 'Mirrors' to draw on. We got a fair number of entries, and after a voting period, determined our winners:
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 March Entry can be used!
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, Lite Brite, 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.
