Draw My Oc Contest
Welcome, this is an anything goes contest with a purpose to draw my main Naruto character, Kurei
. There are additional characters included which you may draw interacting with her!
There is no set theme, while this is titled Kurei's Birthday Bash
, any theme that strikes you is okay.
Feel free to ask any questions should they arise~
Alright, I'm interested! How do I join?
Goood question, it's fairly simple!
--- +Watch the group.
This will help you keep up with updates of this blog as well as any information put into the group. Joining the group is welcome too, and encouraged.
--- Advertise this contest via a journal
(you may use a poll but it must be in conjuncture with a journal). Then post a link here or along with your entry.
--- Get an idea and make an entry
, then, when finished, post below with a thumb or link to your entry and wait for the deadline.
You may enter all categories as many times as you would like. You have the change to win all categories entered.
Sweet, that's simple enough. Are there any rules I should be aware of?
Of course! Every good contest needs a set of rules.
Firstly, this is a contest to draw my OC Kurei, so, you'll have to include her in any entry if you want a chance to win. Also, please keep her in character, if you have any questions at any time, my inbox is always open~
All work should be your own, be it art or literature. No tracing, bases, working over screenshots, doll makers, or using another persons art in anyway, will be accepted. Same goes for literate, no plagiarism will be tolerated. All work should be your own and should be made for this contest!
No anti or hate art please. Do not put Kurei in a situation that could be interpreted as self-harm or bashing. If doing an 18+ piece, make it tasteful. Also, Kurei would only be in a sexual setting with Gaara.
Anything is allowed to be used, Traditional to Digital, Chibi, Anime, Realism, Semi-Realism, and comics are all accepted. Literature (Poetry and Short Stories, ect), are also welcome. Also, just in case, plushies and handmade items are accepted (though I doubt I'll get that lucky, haha). Just make sure, once again, it features Kurei.
All entries must be uploaded to deviantart, as they will be included in the group, so no st.ashing please.
Kurei has multiple outfits to choose from, so you don't have to stick with her primary Shippuden outfit. And, if you are so inclined, you may make up an outfit or switch her outfit with another OC/canon. Just make sure she is identifiable as my character at all times. Same goes for any other character you may choose to use. New outfits are good, just remember they are Sunagakure shinobi and Kurei is a modest little thing~ All colors should be rather muted.
When submitting, please add Contest Entry for NlKNAK
in your artist description -also that's an L not an I- just so I can get it in my mentions. Post a link/thumb to this journal in the artist comments too, if you feel so inclined, so others may find it if they are curious. ART - Digital or Traditional
For art pieces that are not chibis, please have a least a halfbody or up to 4 bust/shoulders (fully colored if possible) shots. While you don't have to enter an award winning master piece, and I love digital sketches with simple shading, make sure you put some effort into it if you really plan on winning~!
I'm not basing my judging on art skill alone, rather, how well you depict Kurei in whatever scene she is in, as well as how creative you are in your work. Interesting poses and stories within a piece will resonate much more with me. LITERATURE - Poetry and Prose
No length requirements on Poetry of course, but keep short stories at a decent length.
The areas judged will be: How well you portray Kurei and any other character used, the type of story you develop, as well as how inventive you can be with word choice and descriptions.
If you wish to enter a piece with both artwork and literature, go right a head, this isn't an either or contest and you'll get extra brownie points for a combo~!
Wonderful, I think I'm ready. Got any References?
Hehe, thought you would never ask!

Though I'd like you to try and focus on Kurei, some times adding another character can really help tell a story. Feel free to also grab things from her history to illustrate~
Hm, I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas/themes. Anything you might want to see?
