forgive me if this idea is a little...weird. and long-winded.
i've been itching to try and improve my totally rad drawing skillz (hah), but i always seem to run into this issue where i run out of ideas before i feel like i make any progress.
so this is where you help me.
i'm asking you to give me a reference picture and write a little something about a character of yours. a little paragraph that intoduces me to them and gives me enough information to draw them for you. the picture doesn't have to be anything special, just a rough idea of what you'd like your dear character to look like.
that's right. you introduce me to your oc, i'll draw them for you. for free, no obligation, etc. simple as that.
all pictures i draw for you will be black and white, inked and probably sans background. some might be full body, some might be busts. some might be headshots. some will be action-y, some will not. some will be portrait-y. some might turn out weird. it depends. asking for specifics probably won't work. maybe it will. idk.
everyone who enters WILL get a picture. it might take me longer than the challenge to complete them all, but don't fret. as long as you enter before the end date, i'll get it done. drawings will be done in the order i recieve/see them, and uploaded to theO and dedicated to you once complete.
i ask that you only enter once, with one oc per entry. if you try and enter more than once, i'll ignore/dq entries subsequent to the first. if you try and write/draw more than one oc into your paragraph/picture, i will ignore other characters beyond the first one i read about.
please keep in mind that this is free art, so...just don't be a crappy person? also i know that my rad skillz really aren't that rad, so if you don't like the way i draw or whatever...don't enter? yeah.
since i'll have to pick winners, i guess, i'll give the awardy-wards to whoever has the best structured/most interesting paragraph(s). the picture you give me won't be judged so don't worry if you can't draw. neither can i. :)
bear in mind that i have some limitations/rules:
-i am really, really, really bad at mechanical/mecha type things.
-overly muscular figures and i don't usually get along.
-i don't know how i'll fare with animals/furries/anthros. i'll give them my best shot.
-i'm cool with partial nudity/a fair amount of sexuality/violence/bloodshed/mature themes/angry villagers/etc, but keep your paragraphs within the rules of adam's kingdom. (keep in mind that i'll use a judgement call on whether or not i can post the art here if you start going this route. if i decide not to post your art here due to obscenity, i'll need an email address from you to send you your art)
-the character you describe must be your own, completely and wholly. it can be a character for a fandom, game, book, movie, from your own story/comic/thing, whatever, but it has to be YOUR CHARACTER. not an adjustment of a pre-existing character or an amalgamation of characters, not someone else's creation. your. own.
-if i feel that i will be unable to properly execute your requested character (due to my lack of ability or a paragraph that doesn't give me enough to go off of, etc.), i will reserve the right to ask you to a) change to a different character of yours b) allow me to make omissions to your character or c) provide more information so i can uphold my end of the bargain. don't be offended if this happens (i don't think it will). it'll be mostly my fault if it does. if after i ask for an adjustment and i still don't think it'll happen, i'll try anyway (and it probably won't be pretty, you were warned).
-if, for whatever reason, your submission for the contest is declined or you are unable to submit something that fits the art parameters i've required you have some options: try submitting again (i'm gonna ask that you try at least twice before resorting to the second option) or pm me with details of the situation and we'll work something out between the two of us. i might have to say that requests/entries recieved in this way will be placed on lower priority in the queue since i don't want everyone suddenly just throwing descriptions everywhere. i'll figure something out on a case by case basis. just talk to me. i'm nice, i promise.
if you have any other questions or comments or whaaatever please feel free to ask or say or whaaatever. you've got a month to get your entry in. thanks! :)
