UPDATE - RESULTS


I'm fighting with my computer and slow internet right now, so I apologise for posting results on the original contest entry. _._;;
Anyways, in the end I ended up having a tie between second place winners so both artist/entries will get $15USD! :)
Thank you to all those who entered, I loved seeing what everyone ended up coming up with, and I really wish I could of awarded more prizes.
Maybe another time, when I have the means/time to hold a bigger contest...

ANYWAYS!!

UPDATE - OCT 3


Thank you to EVERYONE who has submited an entry!
The contest WILL BE JUDGED, and winners should be announced by Monday (Oct 9); Tuesday at the latest!!
For those who might still wish to enter, you have until Saturday 11:59pm CST to finish and submit your entry to be considered eligible for judging!

WHAT IS THIS?


An art contest.


WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?


Contest begins June 27, 2017 and ends September 30, 2017.




WHAT DO I DRAW?


My OC, whom I consider a representation of the Keeper of the Gates that lead to the various world/verses I create.
(aka my 'mascot')

She is a Scheep - a sheep/scottie (scottish terrier) hybrid species I created.

Solakeiref Bb by baark


Fur: very dark, almost black grey.
Hoove/paws: light grey (hooves on front legs, paws on back ones)
Eyes: ice blue.
Wool: gold
Wings: same colour as fur, with silver tipping and markings upon the feathers.
Other: white-gold unicorn horn that glows with a gold-silver light when used. also, leg feathering on upper portion of legs.
When she's using her horn, both her eyes and markings on her wings glow.
Her feet leave trails of magical stardust.

Other References:
by me: One
by others: One Two

Miscellanous:
Solakei can be drawn by herself, or alongside any of the other OCs I own (heh).
I also love seeing her drawn with a plushie version of my OC, Arii's, sheep form...
tbh as long as the character design stays true, artistic license can be taken to give your own spin/flair.
I'm excited to see what all you can come up with! :) Have fun.


THE RULES

01. Entries submitted must be one hundred percent your own creation (no using bases).  Using references in regards to matters such as poses is fine, but source must be stated and credited.  Photo manipulation is a no-go, as is (obviously) tracing.
02. If I have commissioned or requested art from you in the past, you are still free to enter.  However, you can not use the art done for said commission/requests.  Submitted artwork must be unique in creation for this contest.
03. All manners and genres of visual art is allowed, whether it be done using digital and-or traditional means.  Submissions can be of any rating, as long as it's considered appropriate to dA standards and contain proper filters.
04. There is no limit to the number of entries each artist wishes to submit, though an artist is limited to winning just one major prize (so no to the same artist winning both first and second or variation thereof).


WHAT CAN I WIN?

Minimum of five (5) entries needed to award prizes:
First Place: $25USD
Second Place: $15USD
Third Place: $5USD

In the event that twenty-five (25) or more entries are obtained, prizes will be the following instead:
First Place: $50USD
Second Place: $25USD
Third Place: $15USD

Since cash is the prize being offered, it is required that all participants have access to PayPal. 
If for some reason you are unable to provide such and win, then I might be able to instead provide prize through equivalent DA Points.


I WANT TO ENTER!


If interested, just post a comment to this entry with a link to the artwork you're submitting.
I will provide email to send artwork to if you're uncomfortable posting it on DA for whatever reason.
(You can also tag the entry with #baark and/or #solakei)

For all submissions, please mention somewhere that it is for this contest, as well as provide a link to this journal.

I would appreciate if all entries included a download to the full-sized version of the original image.
(Or upload elsewhere and note me, or ask for email to send)

If you wish to include a watermark to the image posted to DA, please be willing to upload a non-marked version somewhere for me.
(Again, providing link via note or sending via email is fine)


DISCLAIMER

All artwork received from this contest will be kept for personal use.
All rights to the actual artwork belongs to the artist/creator.
All I ask is that no reproduction is made, due to the character(s) drawn belonging to myself.


IN CLOSING...

If you have questions or need clariification on anything, please comment or note me - I don't bite!

Thank you! I was really anxious (and I did 3 hours before I finished the deadline ~ I thought I was going to faint!). Sorry for anything. 

I gave my best. Glad you enjoyed it somehow!
I really found the result of the participants beautiful and first place. Congratulations!

Nice character!

Question, what happens if there are not the required 5 entries by 30th of september? Does the deadline extend? *As in you mentioned the prizes will not be given if there are less than 5 entries. Just curious to know + I'm interested in entering :)

This is a bit late but I had originally planned to still see if I can do something had the minimum nit been met. But as of this comment, it is no longer an issue!

I realize it's been a bit since your original question (so sorry!) but if you were still interested, you have until Saturday since judging commences on Sunday and winners announced by Tuesday at latest. :)

Hey Baark! No problem, I was interested enough by your character to enter anyway! I already finished it and gave you the link (Solakei). Good to hear that he limit is met, I'm glad you have entries (I totally understand your rules of 'minimum 5 entries'. It would be sad to have so few). 

Thank you for still taking the time to reply to my comment! Enjoy your day ;)
