The July 1/50 for 150 Raffle

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 8, 2012, 12:28 AM

Well look at the time, another month, another opportunity to shower you illustrious beacons of dashing handsomeness with gifts!  Why?  For being such illustrious beacons of dashing handsomeness, that's why!  Here's how!

Want your chance to win 150 dA points for absolutely nothing!?

Then +Fav this news article to put yourself in the July 1/50 For 150 Raffle!  For every 50 +Faves this article receives, I will add another winner to the running, so you have at minimum a 1/50 chance of winning*!  Ergo, the silly title of the contest.  Redundant?  Perhaps.  Easy?  Absolutely!

*Up to the first 500 who +Fav this article.  Not eligible for mole men, vengeful spirits,
or Justin Bieber (sorry, he's too gosh-darned handsome to qualify).

So go right on ahead and press that dazzling, intriguing 'Fav This Mess' button up to the right there.  Because should you black out the next day in a convulsive fit and soil your favorite knickerbockers in the process, you can rest assured that when you regain consciousness the world won't seem as ruthless with an extra 150 dA points rattling about your username!

"But vest," you ponder contentedly while polishing that well-deserved Sexiest Organism Alive trophy.  "We need not any more affirmation of how beautiful we are, why do you feel so compelled to inflate our ego to the likes of a man on Maury Povich learning he's not the father!?"

To which I daftly parry, "Because my life wouldn't dare jest in calling itself complete without you humbly affirming its very existence!"

Oh, and to shamelessly promote this July Lineart Contest doohickey happenin' here...

The :iconcolor-me-club: Presents:

The July 'Fireflies / Storybook' Lineart Contest:

Last week, a Poll was run to determine the theme of the July Lineart Contest, and we'll be using the top two suggested themes!  You can pick either "Fireflies" or "Storybook," or if you want a challenge, merge the two together!  You are free to pick either theme, or use both simultaneously.  Just as long as it inspires you to draw something, then this contest has succeeded for you.

Of course, metaphorical success is also totally boring.  So let's throw some tangible success into the mix.


: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 50 points or more will also get a three-thumbnail feature in the color-me-club journal.


The contest is simple.  Just draw a black and white lineart of an image that reflects the "Fireflies/Storybook" theme.  Remember, it doesn't have to mesh the themes, you're really just being extended the opportunity to choose one or the other.  You make it more inclusive.

Deadline is on August 1st (when I remember to update the club, so it might go a little later into the afternoon...of August 3rd).

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


Once you have completed your black and white lineart entry, submit it to your DeviantArt gallery.  Then, send the color-me-club a note.  The note should be titled "JULY LINEART CONTEST ENTRY," and the note needs to contain a [link] to your black and white lineart.


A few.

By contributing your lineart 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 July 1st, 2012.

Entries should be received by August 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.

The lineart must be your own.  Ripped or "sampled" lineart will be disqualified.  This includes tracing.  This does not include "referenced" images, you may use any image for reference.  As long as you don't trace an existing image directly, you're free to use any image for reference to help you create your work.

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!  I'm totally hoping for some inspiring truly fluttering, illuminating fantasy creations.

A heart felt thank you is in order

Here's the HEART and the THANK YOU!

A silly contest is a silly contest, but it was cute regardless and I hope it helped promote your July Lineart Contest.

Thanks Mister Vest
