FAC Autumn Equinox Contest (2012) by ShadowFalcon


CONTEST: Draw your personification of what Mother Nature looks like in Autumn!

Deadline: September 23, 2012 September 30, 2012 (CLOSED)

Theme: The autumn Equinox is revered across the world as we shift from one season to the next. In ages past, Mother Nature was worshiped for her ability to bring about the cool season of Autumn out of sunny Summer. She is a goddess clothed in the colors of the seasons and with an image as limitless as your imaginations.

1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When September 23, 2012 September 30, 2012 12:00 AM passes, submissions are closed for the contest. We do not take late work, no matter how good you are. :)
3. No explicit sexuality/violence

Scoring Guidelines:
Skill: 40 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- You can use crafts, digital mediums, traditional mediums(etc.) to express this theme, but you need skill to make it look good! Whatever style you work with, whether anime or realism, make it synchronize with your idea, and your skill will inevitably show.

Creativity: 25 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- There is no such picture, drawing, or image that dictates exactly what Mother Nature looks like. She can have wings, or she won't. She may look young or old, long hair, short hair, etc. Take as much liberty as you like in designing Mother Nature, she'll be proud either way you depict her.

Lighting: 20 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- Although it is Autumn, and the days are slowly getting shorter, it's not quite Winter yet and the sun still plays a key role. Lighting can really bring out a character, and put them to life and though it's a difficult skill, it's one worth practicing for sure.

Colors: 15 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- Warm colors represent Autumn, but don't restrict yourself to those colors only. Even though I highly encourage you to use reds, yellows, and oranges to the best of your ability, feel free to use others. (Who ever said Mother Nature wouldn't look good in a blue dress?)

1rst Place:
-Putting your winning picture on the site news/main-page (this will be an alternative to those who still do not completely qualify for featured pictures or are too new to be popular)
- Specialized 2012 Autumn Equinox Contest Winner badge that you can put on your profile


- Send contest information (whether you will enter, questions, links to entries) to either this picture, the forum post, or my profile
- luckylace222 will help judge this contest with me (2 judges)
- This contest will accept all entries dealing with your personifications of Mother Nature!
- There is no limit on OC/family/friend amounts in the picture. However, be sure to make Mother Nature the centerpiece, the contest is about her after all!

luckylace222Buuuuhhhhhhhhhh. I am not sure if we have time for a Halloween contest since it is so close...we will have to cut straight to the poll immediately after this weekend, and it would be the closest contest after the last contest we have ever had. The public may not have time to give their Halloween ideas. The staff may have to make it for you guys.

Would you still want a Halloween contest though?

ShadowFalconHow about Thanksgiving?

luckylace222 on October 20, 2012, 3:22:42 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222I was thinking of that, but I wondered how exciting we could make Thanksgiving, which includes themes of food, turkey, and...turkey. A Thanksgiving dinner also includes a good Fall harvest, and we already gave users a chance to try their skills at Fall-related art. I was thinking of another November holiday. Hows about Sandwich Day, lol?

We could ask around our profiles on what type of November holiday the FAC artists want to celebrate and draw for. I could also set up a forum post requesting sole contest ideas. That would be a good idea.

What type of other November holiday would you be interested in hosting a contest for?
