 CONTEST: New Year Kiss 

Deadline: January 6, 2013 (CLOSED)

Theme: Is there anything better than kissing someone special on January 1, 2012 from 12:00 AM to 12:01 AM for the new year? 2013 is a clean slate for all of us, especially with academics, friends, family, and careers. A small kiss with someone you trust is a good jumping stone to fulfill your deeper resolutions! Draw yourself, your OC, or something that represents you kissing someone/something for the New Year!

Rules:
1. Only 1 submission per user
2. When January 6, 2012 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

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: 25 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- Not every New Year kiss works exactly like you planned. Heck, many New Year kisses are surprises from friends or a secret admirer. Would you not want an exciting and not-as-plain kiss? That feeling will hold true for next year too! 

 New Year Element: 20 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- If you draw a kiss between two people, sure, it is a nice kiss. However, a New Year kiss is mixed with a celebrative air with friends/family watching or fireworks and bright colors coming from the back. Show some form of New Year element in your kiss, and you will get these points. 

 Colors: 15 points
Example: [CLICK HERE]
- Fortunately, New Year is not subjected to specific colors. It can be mixed with the passing Christmas (red & green), red and white festive colors, or even the color of your wine. Whatever colors you choose, it still stands that New Year is a festive and COLORFUL time.  

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 New Year Contest Winner badge that you can put on your profile

The angelic and warm feeling of the art piece juxaposes from the generic crazy/wild New Year tradition. It gives a sense of purity and a "clean slate!"

Aw shoot,  Too late. D:
luckylace222 on January 6, 2013 10:22:44 PM
luckylace222
Yup, sorry, maybe next contest!

Do you think I should extend contest drawing periods from 2 weeks to 3 weeks? That might help in the future. 
papiocutie on January 6, 2013 10:26:28 PM

I guess, Whatever you want is fine.

Oh god
I was about to comment about the two D*cks at the bottom of the picture but I noticed someone already did. ghhh ;n; you drew the kiss so beautifully! phantom has so much envy right now 
also Koji is the third number >:D

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT WHY WOULD A CAT BE A NUMBER YOU ARE SO SILLY WHAT DERANGED ARTIST WOULD HIDE CATS IN DIGITS JEEZ YOU ARE SO STRANGE PHANTOM BUT IT IS OKAY I FORGIVE YOU

I do not even notice the penises (this picture has taught me how to spell the plural version of "penis") immediately until I read the comments. EVERYONE WHO FINDS THE PENISES IMMEDITELY ARE ALWAYS THINKING IN THE GUTTER,P HANTOM ALWAYS ALWAYS always always *echo* 

ALSO YOU SHOULD DRAW SOMETHING FOR THE CONTEST- I know your characters want to make out on New Years. They make out everywhere!
phantom223 on January 3, 2013 8:50:27 PM
phantom223
THEN PHANTOM MUST BE HIGH AS FRACK THEN! 

actually I just finished my entry. quick question before I submit it are small animation's allowed? 
luckylace222 on January 5, 2013 5:17:48 PM
luckylace222
HECK YEAH, ANIMATIONS ARE ALLOWED! Any artistic format (which is practically everything,, you could draw the entry on your back or make a poem, or sing a song for it for all I care) is fine! 

Now what was the point of asking an important question in point 5 font?

hm..............................................................should I enter? it's just that I can't draw people kissing to save my life -_- but I might try!
luckylace222 on January 2, 2013 8:45:01 PM
luckylace222
GURL, THAT IS THE SPIRIT! I did not have to motivate you there. ;__; It took me a bit to even understand the anatomy of kissing. I had to look up a whole bunch of references when I was learning, and it was a little awkward when people were watching me. I am looking forward to your possible entry! IT is always nice to have something from you each time! It feels good to see you improve right in front of my eyes.
