<img align="right" src="http://thedragoneer.com/arrowtibbs_hana_fender.jpg">In celebration of Halloween, All Hallow's Eve, we're offering a chance to get your pencils and styli wet! We're observing one of the most popular holidays worldwide with an art jam, and we're calling all artists to join in and take part! Get your creativity warmed up and ready to roll, get sketchin' and join in the fun! And maybe win a prize. Candy corn optional.

The Rules:
Draw your character dressed up and costumed as your favorite character, demon or ghoul! Post your entry on both Fur Affinity and this forum thread for all to see. Entries will be judged on creativity first, quality second. The more original the idea, the better your chances.

There is no limit to the amount of entries you may submit. All entries must be PG-13!

Note: If you happen, by sheer chance, to get a paper cut drawing your entry, and develop artistic battle scars that you can show your friends, bonus points. If you get a paper cut drawing your entry and drew it digitally... bonus epic fail points. If you happen to sever a finger drawing... for the love of God please do not eat it.

The Deadline:
Entries must be submit NO LATER THAN midnight Greenwich Mean Time, October 28th! Winners will be announced October 31st.

1st Place:
A copy of Open Canvas 4.5 ($75 value)

2nd and 3rd Place:

A copy of Art Rage 2.5 ($25 value)

Who did that great Vampire Fender art?
That would be Hanazawa on the lead with Arrowtibbs assisting.

Who did the banner art for the ad?
Why, that would be Alchera!

Prizes donated to the contest via the Dragoneer.:smile:

Awesome. Now I have to race through all the work I promised people to get this done.

Just curious: How clean do these have to be? PG13, or just clean enough to be remediable by censor bars when posted here?

Excellent point. :) PG-13 is the standard, though creative usage of censor bars CAN be acceptable provided they are properly integrated into the image. But generally, I wouldn't recommend them.

So is blood PG13? :p

And I don't mean sloshing gallons worth of it, just a bit of a splatter here or there.
 
urgh... with all the different kind of rating ppl been labeling their submissions on FA, I'm a bit puzzled about the EXACT DEFINITION of PG-13 rating on FA... half-naked? full-nude? genitilias? blood? what?

Think movie ratings. What would you not see in the average PG-13 film?

I'd say try to avoid overly graphic gore, throbbing digits, and the likes, and you should be in the green. I don't have an exact definition, but once you start crossing that line, you may have to lay out censor bars, heh.

I keep feeling like my question regarding the ratings makes me out to be someone planning a penis costume or something... so, I just want to clarify that I was thinking more so along the lines of "if I decide there is to be blood"...

I'll probably just make something cute though.

ok seeing as im on the stupid side and i find the PG-13 rule a lil uh... vague myself so i found what is in the guidelines for a PG-13 movie

"A PG-13 motion picture may go beyond the PG rating in theme, violence, nudity, sensuality, language, adult activities or other elements, but does not reach the restricted R category. The theme of the motion picture by itself will not result in a rating greater than PG-13, although depictions of activities related to a mature theme may result in a restricted rating for the motion picture. Any drug use will initially require at least a PG-13 rating. More than brief nudity will require at least a PG-13 rating, but such nudity in a PG-13 rated motion picture generally will not be sexually oriented. There may be depictions of violence in a PG-13 movie, but generally not both realistic and extreme or persistent violence. "

If your submission is tastefully nude it could be accepted, but it'd have to be tasteful and artistic.

thats the whole problem...here in canada, PG-13 is considered Rated R by some american standards...cause we allow the showing of the naked boobies up here in movies...as it is legal to bear bare boobs here in ontario...
