Good luck, people!
Descriptions about the themes and the rules have been edited, since many have asked questions about one certain aspect of this contest.
Please read them carefully.
Hopefully, it makes more sense now.
This contest's Main Theme
is the Four Elements
(Earth, Air, Fire, Water)!
Your entry must have at least one element in it to qualify.
Themes to choose from
Yes, there will be themes within the theme! (Complex, no?) This is to give you some inspiration and to make the contest more interesting.The themes are: K-PopK-Pop is "Korean Pop". Your entry can get inspiration from a K-Pop song and/or a K-Pop artist/group. GeishaGeisha is a female Japanese entertainer. For those that do not know what they look like, here are some references: [link] [link] [link] The twelve signs of the Modern ZodiacThis theme allows you to get inspiration from the Zodiac Signs. The Zodiac I'm referring to is the Zodiac from the West (Aries, Taurus, Gemini e.t.c.) You don't have to draw/paint all 12 signs, though. ButterfliesI like butterflies. They are awesome. Important:
It is required to have at least two of these themes in your entry, you are allowed to have three and if you find the opportunity, try to have all four.
Comment or send me a note that you want to join, and I'll add you to the list of participants.
Any form of art is allowed. (Digital, traditional, 3D. etc.)
"Four elements" is the main theme, your entry HAS
to contain this. Other than that, there are four other themes you can choose from to make your entry more interesting (K-Pop, Geisha, Zodiac Signs and Butterflies). It is required to have at least two of these in your entry, you are allowed to have three and if you find the opportunity, try to have all four.Example:
you choose to only have one element, fire. You also choose to have the theme "Zodiac Signs", but only two of them (Aries and Leo, which are both connected to the fire element) and butterflies.
No sketches. Examples of what I do not want:
This, however, is okay:
No tracing, no copying, no stealing. You know the drill. (And guys: I will check if you have!)
If you use references, you must
provide links! If you don't, you will be disqualified.
You can only submit one entry. You are however allowed to change your entry.
You will be judged on how much effort, thought and detail you put into your piece, so don't submit rushed work. Originality is a plus, try to make it as unique as possible.
You have to note me your entry, or comment on this journal with a link to the artwork.
If less than five have entered and submitted their entries before the deadline is up, this contest will self-destruct.

There will not be any voting for this contest, since I've gotten tired of friends only voting for their friends and not necessarily a deviant deserving of winning. Therefore, I will be using judges for declaring the winners.The judges are:
my fiancée Tim (who doesn't have a deviantART-account)
If you're interested in being a judge, note me.
You cannot be a judge if you're a participant and vice versa.
Prize contributors have the opportunity to be a judge. (Note me, if that's the case.)
