FAC St. Patty's Day Contest (2013) by ShadowFalcon


CONTEST: Design a St. Patrick's Day outfit for your favorite characters, OCs, or yourself!

Deadline: March 31st, 2013

Theme: St. Patrick's Day marks one of the strangest but most fun holidays of the year. It represents one of the very few instances in which we can pinch our friends over something so trivial as their clothing, and thus this contest was born! Deck yourself (or whoever you feel would look awesome in green) in a St. Patty's Day outfit of your design!

1. Only submission per user
2. When March 31, 2013 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. Some nudity is ok, but don't make it too explicit -- Any questions can be directed to me or Luckylace as to what can and cannot be accepted.

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: 30 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- St. Patrick's Day greatly limits the colors we can use in our art, what will get you the most points for this contest is how creative you can use your limited color pallete!

 Lighting: 20 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- Lighting can be used crucially in terms of greens and can really bring out the verdant flash that a green can bring.

 Colors: 10 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- St. Patrick's Day is all about the green. While it is the most commonly associated color with the holiday, it does not mean you are simply limited to it. Get creative!

1st 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 2013 St. Patrick's Day 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 St. Patrick's Day outfit designs!!
- There is no limit on OC/family/friend amounts in the picture. However, be sure to utilize as much of St. Patty's Day as you can!

St. Pat's - Infinity Complex
Name: Firiel
Skill: 29/40
Creativity: 28/30
Lighting: 10/20
Colors: 8/10
Total: 75
In this case, it's not all about the art. Firiel not only puts her own artistic splash on the idea of St. Patrick's Day, but builds a story around it that paints an amazing mental picture.

luckylace222Dang, the outfit idea won?! I thought the pot of gold idea was going to win! People are more fashionably- inclined here than I thought!

I am going to do some chibi coloring on this to make it blend more with the other featured artworks, if that is okay with you! You do not have to take it, but I gotta do something for this contest! 

The tank is a creative idea! I should submit my own ungraded entry for fun.

ShadowFalconOh, no, I don't mind at all, go ahead!

I'm just glad I got it finished in time, haha. Just FYI, I am in the process of getting accepted into my Navy program and that's been keeping me busy for a couple of weeks! But I'm back on the drawing wagon again, especially since the last two episodes of Girls und Panzer is coming out!
