:: Mikoto - Mythology Contest ::

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 23, 2012, 1:13 PM

Greetings, everybody!

Edit: The contest is officially over. Submission to Contest folder will be closed from now. 
Thank you for your participation :meow: The judging will now proceed until 20 May. 

Considering we've been getting multiple requests for the deadline extension, it's been decided that the Mikoto Mythology Contest will last for an extra 7 days, i.e. until

27th April.

We hope this extension will help those who've been struggling to finish their entry because of unexpected complications = ) 
Thanks for your patience and participation :meow: :heart:



The time has come when I proudly commence this long awaited annual Mikoto Contest! Every Mikoto fan [including potential ones] are more than welcome to join!

:: THEME ::
:star: This year's theme for the Mikoto Contest is Mythology :star:
Siren by luciole+ Deity + by akirakiraiGreen Dragon by Elfessaflora by JDarnell

The idea was inspired by wonderful illustrations of mythical characters. Your task will be simple: Create a drawing of Mikoto Uchiha in a mythical theme. Let imagination be your guide. You may draw her as goddess Amaterasu from Japanese mythology, siren/ mermaid of the sea, Persephone or Flora [goddess of Spring] from Greek mythology, as a Chinese deity with the dragon and phoenix mates, but also as a chibi in a Easter bunny costume :la: :heart: Anything! You can even make her your own deity of an imaginary universe!


:: RULES ::

• The themes of the contest [Mikoto, Mythology] shall be respected.
• Entries are submitted to :iconmikotouchihafc:’s gallery, into the respective Category [General/ Beginner] of Mythology Contest folder 
[See the prizes section to find out about which Category you belong to]
 • No offensive message/ hate art/ art violating dA policy
• Maximal number of entries per person is 2, obviously only one will be considered for winning. 
• The work must be entirely done by you. 
• And most of all, have fun! :dummy: :heart:

TIPs:

• Be creative. The impact and originality is just as important [if not more] than drawing skill in this contest.
• Having an interesting concept for your drawing can make it stand out from the rest. 
• Since I’m a nitty-picky person, I will most probably sneak to your gallery as well to see how much effort has been put into the drawing. Entries that are exceptionally good compared to contestant’s gallery standard will receive extra credit.



 :: DEADLINE ::

 The deadline for the contest is 20th April.



:: PRIZES ::
A cookie to all generous, kindly people who donated to this prize pool! :iconarigatouplz:
