So I had originally written a long rant about my post-partum depression that ended up being deleted because I pressed the wrong button.
So rather than annoying you guys with my deep-seeded issues on my lack of self-worth/self-confidence and my inability to let things so and not take everything to heart...
I'll just leave you guys with the contest part...Geezus I feel even more depressed that I deleted my rant... No, no. Time to perk up now.
Ok... le contest...
Make Burning Artist smile
It's pretty simple. I need stuff to make me happy. I feel really down so I need stuff to gave me a reason to get up in the morning.
I'd like for whoever is interested, to make me an illustration of one of my OCs
in exchange for a Three month Premium Membership.
The contest starts now and ends March 31st 12am EST. Simply leave the link to the illustration in this journal so I can take a looksee.
It can be done in any medium, black and white or color, whatever you feel more comfortable with. I only have enough points for 1 winner so there will be no places. However, know that in participating, you will be helping me out emotionally and mentally. You can submit as many entries as you want and use more than 1 character in the image. The winner will simply be the one that makes me smile the most.
Pro tips: Know that skill/experience isn't necessarily the thing that will trump others in this contest. The one that will win, will probably be the person who understands my characters the best and portray them in such a way that I will think: "Oh yeah, they've nailed him/her!" I'm also a sucker for a good mood/original concept and go nuts with your own styles! Often, the stuff I like the most are things that are full of emotions, and totally different than what I'm used to. I hope that helps. Also, feel free to note me for details on my characters. I don't consider this cheating. The only thing that I can't do is critique pieces/submissions before the deadline. That's too much input since we're doing a contest.
