 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

Skill (40): 31.5

New Year Element (20): 12.5
Colors (15): 11.5

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 on
luckylace222Yup, 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

papiocutie on

luckylace222 on
luckylace222IT IS NOT TOO LATE! According to my clock, you have around 5 more hours to get a picture in! At 12:00 AM Midnight, however, the contest will have closed. 

phantom223 on December 23, 2012, 11:46:13 PM

phantom223 on
phantom223Oh 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 

luckylace222 on January 3, 2013, 1:52:45 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222WHAT 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 on
phantom223THEN 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 on
luckylace222HECK 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? 

ShadowPrincess on January 5, 2013, 1:01:41 AM

pixiewolf05 on
pixiewolf05hm..............................................................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 on
luckylace222GURL, 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. 

pixiewolf05 on January 3, 2013, 6:59:09 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Sorry, but where is that gif from. Since it is Will Smith, it is probably from an epic alien-monster fighting movie, but it is like he is a holding an expensive flashing dildo. 

ShadowPrincess on January 3, 2013, 4:55:38 PM

luckylace222 on January 3, 2013, 2:43:22 PM

luckylace222 on

luckylace222 on
luckylace222SHADOW IS RIGHT DO NOT FOLLOW MY AND SHAOW'S EXAMPLE AND BE LAZY; IT WILL BE THE DEATH OF YOU

ShadowFalcon on December 24, 2012, 2:11:15 AM

ShadowFalcon on
ShadowFalconThen work to not be lazy! xD

I guess I shouldn't be one to talk though, I've been pretty lazy myself.

angel88i want to enter but i have to much to do!!

luckylace222 on January 3, 2013, 1:57:52 PM

luckylace222 on
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

Rodimus84 on January 1, 2013, 7:27:53 PM

Rodimus84 on
Rodimus84Nice use of color. Festive :)

luckylace222 on January 3, 2013, 1:55:47 PM

luckylace222 on
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! 

MadamePenguin on December 23, 2012, 11:06:17 PM

MadamePenguin on
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!

luckylace222 on January 3, 2013, 1:47:38 PM

luckylace222 on
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.

papiocutie on December 23, 2012, 7:49:21 PM

papiocutie on
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

papiocutie on December 24, 2012, 10:49:14 AM

papiocutie on
papiocutieOh, Thank you! :D

Liezy on December 24, 2012, 1:16:48 AM

LiezyId be glad to enter if it could just be OCs in the pic, Im not a fan of drawing my persona too much thats why

ShadowFalcon on December 24, 2012, 2:16:57 AM

ShadowFalcon on
ShadowFalconOC are perfectly fine. If that's what you're most comfortable with, then go right for it!
