FAC Christmas Contest (2011) by luckylace222


CONTEST: Who's under that mistletoe?

Deadline: December 31, 2011 (CLOSED)

Theme: Sipping eggnog and eating cookies by the fire is nice and all, but being traditionally obliged to kiss that special (or even hated) person under the mistletoe is something to send a holiday postcard about![/b]

Draw those persons, or even group of people, finding themselves under the mistletoe. It could be romantic, humorous, or just plain awful. These people could be based off your real life or completely made up. Just know that anything concerning a mistletoe is not boring!

1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When December 31, 2011 12:00 AM passes, submissions are closed for the contest. I do not take late work, no matter how good you are. :)
3. No explicit sexual themes/violence. No one sane kills someone under the mistletoe, no matter how icky they are!

Scoring Guidelines:
Skill: 40 points
- 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
- Kissing under the mistletoe is an expected reaction, but what makes it really interesting is if they hate, feel awkward, or have an angry cheese crab in their way. Mistletoe situations are a perfect sources of original moments!

Christmas Theme: 20 points
- Including the mistletoe, there should be other Christmas elements such as a Christmas tree, presents, ornaments, cookies and milk (etc), something to show that they did not randomly put a mistletoe up in the middle of April!

Colors: 10 points
- Christmas is never black and white. Green, blue, red, and yellow (etc) are only a few colors affiliated with Christmas lights, trees, and presents. The holidays is no time to be narrow-color-minded.

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 2011 Christmas Contest Winner badge that you can put on your profile/winning picture description

Iamphotoshop :

- Send contest information (whether you will enter, questions, links to entries) to either this picture, the forum post, or my profile
- You can draw multiple characters in this entry. A mistletoe can fit more than just 2 people!

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

1st Place:
Name: tofuproductionz
Skill: 32/40
Creativity: 26/30
Christmas Theme: 17/20
Colors: 7.98/10
Total: 82.98
- Her colorful and fun fan art for the new Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword gives us a good Christmas/New years feel! Both the birds and the Christmas lights are making sure Link feels the festivities before he goes back to his adventure!
The Christmas entries had higher points than the previous contest. It is like you guys are getting better by the contest! I am proud of every single one of you! See you next contest, if you are courageous enough (it will be Valentines Day-themed). If you are saddened about your score, just know that it is a new year, and you have started it off getting more artistic experience with this contest! (Also, it turns out a lot of you guys, including me, have been mixing mistletoe and holly up. :C

luckylace222Do not worry about the late comment! I have to leave again for school, so I am all about late comments everywhere. :I *grabs your shoulders* Did you get addicted to WOW again?!

Thank-you so much for the critique! It has been forever since I have gotten a good one. You are correct with those Xx and stars! After cramming that Christmas Contest picture and concentrating so much on special dot details, one of those "last" things I added was the stars and Xs, and I was like, "Forget this!" -has spasm with tablet- I will make sure to make such hasty work more organized. I should also instill some patience at the end. P; Bahh art! -Or I could always practice speed-drawing so much that my fast sketches look professional! That could solve a lot. I also see what is wrong with her chin! I was worrying about her face. Something about it seemed different than my original style, and I could not pin point, but I guess it is because her chin looks almost like a straight line!

"I love all your detail, but I don't usually see that detail in bright, shiny color!"
^What do you mean by you do not see the detail in the bright shiny color? Were the shines too strong to see the shading detail? ;(

aeris7dragonHere's my entry! <3 (

I killed two partridges with one drawing; well, technically three partridges. I drew it watching Scott Pilgrim, and for a friend's Christmas challenge, as well. OwO

(does it count if two out of the three are Homestuck characters? >.>)

luckylace222 on December 31, 2011, 12:09:35 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Thanks for the entry! HOMESTUCK. I have to do Fanart for that someday....drawing fat no-armed people in your own art-style is fun!

I JUST NEED TO GET INTO THE COMIC- AUUGHH!! *messes hair out in frustration* BAH!

aeris7dragon on December 31, 2011, 2:50:31 PM

aeris7dragon on
aeris7dragonHow's about, start where you feel comfortable starting, and when you get into it a bit and has questions, ask me? (I'm a little bit obsessive so I try to memorize every little detail, heehee XD)

(Also, I'm a little bit - okay, a LOT-a-bit - upset by Iamphotoshop's comment concerning yaoi/yuri. ._.)

luckylace222 on January 1, 2012, 3:09:33 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Haha, it is alright! His opinion is understandable. Not everyone is okay with those type of couples, and we must do our best to be considerate of that.

On a pertaining note, I am going to be submitting another yaoi comic so incredibly soon. (I am not doing very good in being considerate to him in that sense xD) I will die being a yaoi lover!

aeris7dragon on January 1, 2012, 9:26:41 AM

aeris7dragon on
aeris7dragonDude, yaoi is. The best. Thing ever. Especially when you're writing fluff. >w< I never knew how much I loved writing yaoi fluff until I wrote that one fanfiction. >w<

*is derpily grinning like a schoolgirl who just had her first kiss heehee*


luckylace222 on January 1, 2012, 12:56:17 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222*u* OH YOU WILL ENJOY IT. I should link it immediately to your profile when I submit it (if I can remember) just to surprise you.

ZeroMidnight on
ZeroMidnightYeah, I thought about entering, but that last contest had me pushing all my art motivation out the window trying to get it done in time and before all the stuff I really wanted to draw.
But maybe I'll enter another contest later.

Those are some lovely and sweet entries btw~ <3

Happy New Years to you too! *hugs*

kylaVegetaOh man I shall have to do this!!! but the thing is choosing who I want to be under there. haha maybe a humorous moment with Louie and Xan??? Oh and I love the pic you drew for this they're so cute!!!

luckylace222 on December 18, 2011, 8:34:22 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222A Louie and Xan mistletoe picture?! *-* YEAHH! Of ourse, Louie will look like much of a boy, and you will be forced ot put on a yaoi rating! LOL not really

I cannot wait! It is great when you have TOO many ideas! Better to have too much than to have too little!

Iamphotoshop on December 18, 2011, 11:36:01 PM

IamphotoshopLord, can we please not mess this Christmas contest with YAOI porn please. -_-;

luckylace222 on December 19, 2011, 12:19:58 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222No, Louie is actually a girl. She just looks like a boy. So I was actually kidding about the yaoi! ;o

<u< -But if she or anyone wants to do yaoi, she is allowed, since I did not put any rules against it.

Iamphotoshop on December 19, 2011, 6:00:49 PM

Iamphotoshop on

Well you should put the rules about NO YAOI/YURI in this contest. I mean Christmas is around the coner and none wants to see that ya'know.

aeris7dragon on December 31, 2011, 2:45:47 PM

aeris7dragon on
aeris7dragonExcuse me, Mr./Ms. "no one wants to see it in this contest," but I'd say that, considering gender specifications don't matter when it comes to who you love, I'd say that a mistletoe contest would include everyone, no matter what gender someone is.

Or are you saying that my entry shouldn't be considered, because it is two guys sharing a loving moment? I won't even give you a link, because you seem to not want to look at yaoi either way. But it isn't porn, and not all yaoi is porn; my most recent fan fiction does NOT contain anything worse than kissing and/or profanity, but it's obvious the main characters are gay for each other. Yaoi, however, does not always equal porn.

Or how's about, you let the JUDGES, a.k.a. Lucky, decide who wins this contest, instead of you, who are just an entrant (as far as I know).

And if you really can't stand same-sex relationships, I suggest you stop "following" me on this website, as that is pretty much all I draw these days.

Thank you, and happy New Years.

luckylace222 on December 20, 2011, 12:14:44 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Wait, It is not like I am letting porn in silly child! I should put that in the rules as "no explicit sexual themes" to make sure you do not have to see that stuff.

In the general theme of yaoi/yuri, it is a mistletoe event, and it would not be fair if it was limited to only heterosexual couples. There is nothing wrong with same-sex couples, even around Christmas!
