The time is finally here my dear friends, watchers, and fellow artists, the time for the final contest for 2014 is here! I proudly present to you December's contest; "Mastery, Movement, Design"! At this current time this is the final contest of them all because it is a strong possibility that I will be unable to post contests for 2015. So then, let's go over the details for this amazing contest shall we?
Your challenge this month is to create a Gijinka based upon the Legendary Pokemon themselves. Any and all official legendary Pokemon are eligible for this contest and I challenge all of you to create your finest work to show DeviantART just how amazing each and everyone of you truly are. This contest begins the moment you read this journal and ends December 31st at midnight, New Year's day. Not only will you be creating an entry for this contest in hopes of winning but you'll also be creating something to celebrate the coming of the New Year, let's send 2014 on it's way with a bang shall we?
So let's go over the amazing prizes that you great people will be earning! We'll start with first place, Those who take first place in either category of this contest will receive an Arceus, and if you want, an additional legendary Pokemon of your choice excluding Genesect and Keldeo. The points prize will be 500 points as always.
December's contest is a bit different, you are allowed to enter two entries this time but only if it's one entry in each category! (ex. one entry in MMD and one entry in drawn art)
For all other participants who enter an entry into this contest, you will receive a consolation prize of 50 points and a choice between Mew, Jirachi, or Celebi for one of the following games; Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Pokemon Omega Ruby, or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.
All participants of this contest are required to exchange friend codes with me and tell me their trainer's name if you have not done that yet. If you do not give me those two things you can not receive your prize. Also! You must accept your Pokemon prize no later than 09JAN15, once you accept your Pokemon prize you will be given your points, this applies to everyone.
If you do not have a Pokemon game then the Pokemon prize does not apply to you. However! If you win first place and you don't have a Pokemon game your Pokemon prize will be passed off to the runner up for first place unless you will be getting any of the four games before the conclusion of January 9th, 2015.
Now as previously stated, this contest begins starting today, 06DEC14 after you read this and will end on December 31st at midnight Arizona time.
