CONTEST: Draw you and your friends (real or fictional) enjoying a fireworks show!

Deadline: July 13, 2012 (CLOSED)

Theme:[/b] Exploding hundreds of combustibles at rhythmatic times is what Independence Day is all about! However, the best time to set those fireworks up to see the glimmering and colorful lights is not alone, but with family and friends (fictional or not)! Draw your buddies, peeps, homedawghs, and Uncle May enjoying the fireworks with you on Independence Day!

Rules:
1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When July 13, 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
Example: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/285/3/0/fireworks_show_by_kaceym-d30mit2.jpg
- 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: http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs41/f/2009/010/d/4/Fireworks_Field_by_vaniamarita.jpg
- No one wants to see a loner in the shadows on Independence Day. We want to see everyone lively, intrigued, and interacting with each other in a fun/mischievous/creative way! The more characters, the better!

Lighting: 20 points
Example: http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/184/8/6/Fireworks_by_dackQ.jpg
- When there are fireworks, there is lights, and lots of it. Being able to shade characters with firework lighting in mind is a difficult task, but when succeeded or even decently attempted, it can pool into your Skill points!

Colors: 10 points
Example: http://bengalized.com/art/pictures/TandU/fireworks%20finale%20blog.jpg
- You know what I am talking about. This category is crucial to bringing the fireworks out. Have you seen black and white fireworks? They are a little hard to see.

Prize:
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 Independence Day Contest Winner badge that you can put on your profile

i <3 the gorillaz

luckylace222 on July 12, 2012, 4:04:59 AM

luckylace222I adore the Gorillaz's Feel Good Inc. song to death. I know they are just cartoon characters, but they draw them and make them interact shows a good message! It is like they are real with their own feelings and pain and quests to find more!

SO PHILOSOPHICAL ~

I have put your entry up! Thank-you!

HoodieErrr... Tempted to enter. Tempted. But there are only 3 days left... err...

On a different note, love the way Iron Man and The Hulk look here! lol

luckylace222 on July 10, 2012, 12:46:21 PM

luckylace2223 days of awesome is all Hoodie needs to PUT THIS CONTEST INA BAG AND SHIP IT TO THE BAHAMAS FOR A SURPRISE VACATION TO HIMSELF, SIPPING COCKTAIL WITH THE TROPICAL KANGAROOS AND DOODLING A WINNING PIECE.

Why thank-you! The Hulk's pants especially too my 90% of the picture's time. It had to be perfect.

HoodieThe Hulk's pants are glorious. And trust me, I'm insanely stingy about Iron Man and the Hulk. They're my favorites. Do them justice, people! Haha

I don't know, I'm tempted to enter this one just because I like the subject matter... But I don't like competitions... I don't like losing, and I don't like beating other people. :P Why can't everyone win? -inner conflict-

Oh, well. I'll doodle around, and if I come up with something passable I'll consider sticking it in.

luckylace222 on July 11, 2012, 11:21:48 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Even if you make a doodle, enter it. I would LOVE to have your work for a contest! It makes me feel hopeful that I will see a finished contest product some day!

If everyone won, everyone would suffer great fertilization mutations because all the sperm could swim to the egg.

HoodieAw, hell, I'm just gonna do it. Everyone can shoot me for it later lol
