FAC New Year Contest (2012) by luckylace222


 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!

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.  

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


- Send contest information (whether you will enter, questions, links to entries) to either this picture, the forum post, or my profile
- There will be 2 judges (luckylace222 & ShadowFalcon) for the contest, and your final score will be the average of our two scores
- I will accept near- isses (the lips do not have to touch, but at least have a kissing atmosphere)
- You can have as many characters in the picture as you want, just as long as there is a New Year kiss

1st Place:
Name: SofeSmity
Skill (40): 31.5
Creativity (25): 19.5
New Year Element (20): 12.5
Colors (15): 11.5
Total (100): 75
A beautiful and soft watercolor piece with not just the custum of fireworks interesting looking ones at that), but also the custum of the lucky rabbit's foot! It is true; if you want good luck for the new year, start off with a lucky charm to keep you going! 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!"

luckylace222*destroys all of your angel188's obligations and chores* NO YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO ATTEMPT TP WIN ANOTHER CONTEST

My biggest dream is to see all the previous contest winners to duke it out on one contest. You may be close to it- IF YOU JOIN THIS ONE -ahem. -Or you could be beat by an less-known artist. AND THEN YOU COULD HAVE A RIVAL YEAH

luckylace222Thanks! Not making a festive picture for a holiday picture is treachery. I JUST LOOKED AT YOUR GALLERY Dude, you better join the contest. People need to know more about you!

MadamePenguinMy god this has to be one of your most colorful pictures to date...I can definitely believe that it took you 8.5 hours!

luckylace222You know....those times I give are pure estimates. What if I draw must faster or slower than I think? I should really time a piece next time to see. ;__; IT IS SO COLORFUL NO ONE NOTICES THE blue "ugh." NO ONE NOT EVEN MY BEST MUTT FRIEND. *sob* Anyways, the more colorful, just know: the more back-painstakingly long and tedious and horrible it was for me. I sense things will get lazier from here. It is artistic fluctuation. 

GO MAKE SOMETHING COLORFUL- I miss your colorful art work. I saw some of my colorful work on your walls. GO TAKE IT OFF THE WALLS AND GO GET A LIFE

luckylace222I apologize for my late replies. I was on vacation, and I was not able to finish finalizing the contest information or answer your questions because I refused to pay for hotel Internet. I am here now. Everyone can dance and party now.

papiocutieI guess I'll enter, Can it be nose kiss too?

ShadowFalcon on December 24, 2012, 2:13:03 AM

ShadowFalcon on
ShadowFalconA nose kiss should be fine. The parameters do state that you don't actually have to have the lips touching (near kisses)!

As long as you paint a good picture that illustrates the atmosphere of something like a new year kiss. ;D

papiocutieOh, Thank you! :D
