FAC Mother's Day Contest (2012) by luckylace222


CONTEST: I am a hypothetical "mother" (even if I am male) to my OCs. If they were real, how would I treat them?

Deadline: May 20, 2012 (CLOSED)

Theme:[/b] I love my mom, you love your mom, but hey! Are we forgetting about someone important? I am a mother, working day and night to take care of my OCs, making sure they grow and mature artistically! Why do I not get some credit here? Draw you as a "mother" and your OCs as your "children" in whatever familial, action-packed, and hilarious situation you want. If those OCs were real, think about all the trouble they would/would not give you!

1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When May 20, 2012 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 sexuality/violence

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
- Drawing yourself in an apron with your OCs standing next to you is boring! Put yourself in a motherly/ironically not-motherly moment and play around with how your OCs would react!

Motherliness: 20 points
- Add an element of maternity and matron-ness to your picture whether it be cooking, worrying, cleanliness, nagginess, etc. How well you creatively portray this motherliness will determine your points!

Colors: 10 points
- Since there are all kinds of mothers, and the flowery, warm, obedient mother stereotype is fading, colors are completely free reign as long as they are used professionally/decently!

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 Mother'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
- You can draw as many or little OCs as you want (as long as there are not so many OCs that it makes the picture hard to understand)
- You do not have to draw yourself as the "mother," but it would be more fun that way!

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

1st Place:
Name: VictorAndLizzy
Skill: 32/40
Creativity: 23.9/30
Motherliness: 14.8/20
Colors: 8.9/10
Total: 79.6
Her typical Mother's Day is packed with fast-riding snow sleds and loud screams down a snowy mountain-side! Who cares about making her cake and cookies; she can entertain herself! In addition to drawing her two anthro OCs well, she has shown her talent for simple but beautiful snow backgrounds. It is obvious their Mother's Day could not get any better!

luckylace222Your optimism has gotten me excited! P: How would you guys feel about an Independence Day contest? If not, the next possible one would be....National Watermelon Day in August. Lol, just kidding. No really, that would be awesome.

orianajonesWhat about "Random Contest of the month" :D

luckylace222 on May 26, 2012, 2:54:11 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222I would honestly love to do something like that. HMMMMMMMMM. It have to be truly random. If I tell you now, it would not be random.

shadow-angel84uhm not to sound mean or anything but isn't this entry technically too late?

luckylace222 on May 21, 2012, 8:12:18 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Do not worry. Her and I talked about it. She technically finished the entry before the deadline, but she used up her submission limit (5), so I said I would let her submit it late I already had evidence she drew it.

Thanks for your stickling to the rules!

MadamePenguinAre you done yet?

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 1:20:14 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222If you mean done with the submission scores, I usually reveal those and the winner about 2 days from the deadline. Right now, the contest is still up until midnight today comes. At this point, I am just spending time on FAC nonstop to help last-minute entries get in through the approval panel and...laugh at my old art.

You should submit here enough that you can look at it like an art album! DRAW MORE OF YOUR OCs. No, draw some YAOI. Show FAC your true colors!

MadamePenguin on May 20, 2012, 1:31:58 PM

MadamePenguin on
MadamePenguin...are you done now? :3
I would draw some more but I need a better program that you should send me an email about where to find it :D

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 2:29:56 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222-Or you could perfect your MSPaint skills! Have you SEEN Gerardway2008's work? That girl has TOO MUCH MSPAINT SKILL.

Did you ever attempt OpenCanvas 1.1 again?

MadamePenguin on May 21, 2012, 7:08:27 AM

MadamePenguin on
MadamePenguinAlready follow that artist :3
And obviously if I ask for you to send me the link again, that obviously means that I probably haven't tried it

luckylace222 on May 21, 2012, 8:14:44 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Hey, I was pretty sure I made you try it with me watching once! Your memory is so prejudice!

MadamePenguin on May 21, 2012, 9:31:40 AM

MadamePenguin on
MadamePenguinI remember doing this, I don't remember where it was though

kylaVegeta on May 11, 2012, 6:01:22 PM

kylaVegetaOH man I really hope I will be able to enter. I have an idea in my head. I just hope I will be able to do it in time.

luckylace222 on May 12, 2012, 10:15:03 AM

luckylace222 on

kylaVegeta on May 19, 2012, 2:38:31 PM

kylaVegeta on
kylaVegetaQAQ Sorry I didn't enter lace... I did draw a pic and everything but I didn't have time to color it... *looks at clock.* its already 12:37... I'm sorry. TO make up for it I shall get lots of comic pages done. and enter the next contest.

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 1:21:54 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222OH your silly kylavegeta! You do realize the true deadline is 12:00 AM (midnight) today right? It says it in the guidelines! Darn it, why did I not see this reply earlier! You could just submit the uncolored version! Surely, that will get you some decent points up there!

kylaVegeta on May 20, 2012, 4:35:44 PM

kylaVegeta on
kylaVegetaAre you for cereal that this whole time I was reading that wrong!? Man I really have been losing my mind... I read that thing fifty million times and read it wrong each time... I can't believe it... oh well I look forward to seeing the winner... I shall color the picture and post it anyway so you can see it.

SamElmis91 on May 20, 2012, 5:31:32 AM

SamElmis91 on
SamElmis91sorry Lucky v___v I couldn't draw anything cuz I was busy and b4 I knew it it is the final day =( I wish I knew about the contest a while longer, I really wanted to participate >.<

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 7:25:28 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222No worries homedawgh! With where you live, the amount of pressures from real life, and you rather personal obligations, it is understandable that not everyone can do this contest in time! It is great that you even considered it! -Perhaps the next contest (most likely I do not know probably I do not know!: Independence Day)!

Now, if you REALLY WANT TO BE A DARE-DEVIL, you could use this time before midnight today to do that contest picture, submit it in, and win the contest anyways! *eyebrow waggle*

SamElmis91 on May 20, 2012, 7:29:05 AM

SamElmis91u got may bolld to burn with desire *coughs* how much time time is left exactly (what is the time at ur watch cuz I'm on GMT +2 zone) so how much time is still left at judging by watch?

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 7:39:01 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Right now, it is 4:37 PM as I speak. I am on Central Time Zone.

You have precisely 6 hours and 23 minutes.

I could successfully rob a bank in that time.

SamElmis91 on May 20, 2012, 7:44:53 AM

SamElmis91 on
SamElmis91nice ^^ this could possibly work ^^ I'll try my best as I sacrifice my night of sleep for the sake of mother's day contest !!!! u should take this under consideration * blinks* I'll have to think of something really fast!
