CONTEST: Create Your Own To-Do List! by luckylace222


CONTEST: Create Your Own To-Do List (CLOSED)

Deadline: August 15, 2011

Theme: You've got a lot of things to do, so why not write them on an interesting to-do list? Design a creative To-Do List for your family and friends![/b]

The design can be cute, funny, strange, unnerving, and even grotesque. All I know is I am sick of all the lame To-Do List designs out there, aren't you? Lets do something about it!

1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When August 15, 2011 12:00 AM passes, submissions are closed for the contest. I do not take late work, no matter how good you are. :)
3. Picture topics/styles are free reign. That means "no rules" for the picture itself. Yes, that means yaoi, yuri, gruesome violence, drugs, etc. is allowed

Scoring Guidelines:
Creativity: 40 points
- A to-do list design with a white background and a simple "Things I need to do" is just a to-do list. Make something that makes others think, laugh, and smile at the wittiness/originality.

Skill: 30 points
- Working with the art-style and mediums you are comfortable with will bring out your "skill" or compatibility with your topic in your lines. You can craft a to-do list, sculpt one, or paint one, as long as you show your skill.

Organization: 20 points
- I want clear space to write my notes. That is what a to-do list is for. To write on. Creativity with still a sense of organization and not random dark bubbles dead where I want to write is requested for a nerd's sanity.

Colors: 10 points
- I am a bias color freak, so I want a variation of colors to not only appease me, but make your to-do list more eyecatching. These points are easy to earn. Just do not stay with black and white(on exception to certain depressing to-do list topics that require such eerie colors).

1rst Place:
- Full colored professional picture (this picture is top priority/will be done immediately)
- Fav Artist
- I will follow & comment all of the person's newly submitted art after winning

2nd Prize:
- Simple colored picture
- Fav Artist

3rd Prize:
- Colored chibi
- Fav Artist


Help? If you do not have any idea what type of template you will use, I have created a simple one for you to build off of (tablet will make it easier).

- Send contest information (whether you will enter, questions, links to entries) to either this picture or my profile.
-You can choose whether to write on your own to-do list or not!

Post any questions! If not, be lost in a void of confusion, laughter, and pointing fingers. Good Luck!

1st Place:
Name: _ren_tao_fan_
Creativity: 36/40
Skill: 28/30
Organization: 14/20
Colors: 10/10
Total: 88
-Excellent mastery with MSPaint in making different color gradients that span from all the way to the blue sky to the dark blue ocean. Creativity points were given most for this feat, and despite the lack of organization with too spanned out to-do list lines and minuscule space to write, it compensated with its artistic excellence.

2nd Place:
Name: K_Pepper
Creativity: 34/40
Skill: 27.5/30
Organization: 19/20
Colors: 5/10
Total: 85.5
-Perhaps the lax rules of this unofficial to-do contest was the disadvantage of this picture, because I can almost guarantee in an official to-do list contest, it would have won at least 1st place or some significant place. Its sense of calm organization mixed with a soft monochromatic blue makes this to-do list a key choice for mature goal-setters.

3nd Place:
Name: Aesthetic
Creativity: 35/40
Skill: 26/30
Organization: 16/20
Colors: 7.8/10
Total: 84.8
-Who cares about the norm; this to-do list is too fun for that! Despite the rocky lines, this dark/punk-like list screams the artist's personality and makes one want to party instead of making goals for the future!
Let me just say this now. It has been an honor to comment, encourage, and judge your pieces. Everyone did amazing, and you blew my mind more than once. The scores were close, and I mean close. Also, just for fun, you know how I said I would Fav Artist the 3 winners? Well, I just went and faved all the contestants, lol. So, there, everyone gets something! Thanks for the fun guys! ;)

If you all want to see the scores of every individual contestant:

If you do not have access to the forums, ask an administrator (ex: Stratadrake, Battou) for access or ask me through this page for your score, and I will PM it to you!

luckylace222Strange, they were working before when I double checked it. ]; It may be because I sized the links up.

Dang it, the forum links may have become messed up too.

Thanks for telling me!

Yoshi4EverAfterHow I wish I made one. ;_; Especially now, when I've got two ideas. ._.

luckylace222Awwww, it is alright. People are making more contests here and there! I am sure your ideas would have amazing- what with your adorable art!

I do not know if you can access the forums yet (if you cannot, ask Stratadrake/Battou for access), but if you can, here is a "Dance the Night Away" Contest by CrystalSabre that is due on September 18, 2011! Just ask him about it if you are interested.

Thanks a lot for considering my contest though! It always makes me feel good when people have ideas ready to be let out. You do not need my contest to submit those to-do ideas though. Go ahead and submit them for just your gallery, and I will be sure to comment if you link it to me. I am curious of your cute ideas!

luckylace222You are working against high tide, but I am sure you will secrete the salty bitterness of competition out of your Mangrove leaves and come out victorious over nature's waves!

*cheesy analogy is cheesy*

Lets see how you fair! You have the talent! :P If you are interested that is!
