Howdy all, SaL here announcing a contest Sallyhot and myself have decided to start up, in honor of our new site and our favorite squirrel. :)
What: The contest is to draw something involving Sally Acorn, it doesn't have to be mature or adult, it can be cute or clean, whatever you want it to be!
Theme: The theme is Halloween, since it's that time of the year. :P However it's entirely optional, you don't have to draw Halloween if you don't want to, the point is to draw something about Sally. Halloween will give you a higher grade though, so keep that in mind. Also tentacle monsters get bonus points. :P
When: It'll run from 10/7/12 to 10/25/12 (ending at 11:59pm).
Applying: Simply post a comment that you are entering the contest, and I'll update this journal to include your name in the entrees. If you wish to remain anonymous, note me instead of commenting and I'll just place you as "Anon entrant". You will officially be in the contest and we'll be waiting for your submission.
Submitting your entry: Just submit the art to your IB, and send a link in this Journal. Make sure you mention that it's a entry, and if you want to include some details, go right ahead in the comment.
Winners and prize: There will be 3 winners, all of whom will get their submission posted on the official Team Acorn site, and the #1 winner will receive a $30 cash prize as a bonus, along with bragging rights and a special "#1 Team Acorn contest winner" stamp on the art. :D All winners will also be posted on our Journal, along with the links to their submission. And if they wish their submissions will also receive our Team Acorn stamp on them. The prize money will be paid by paypal, if you happen to win and don't have a paypal, we'll find another way to send the money.
Rules: The submissions don't have many rules, no gore or anything vulgar please. You're allowed to draw other characters, as long as the main focus or equal focus is Sally. Since this is about her. Also you may draw your own characters in if you wish, though the score will favor Sonic characters over anything unrelated, keep that in mind please. And above all have fun!
Judging: Everything will be taken under consideration when Sallyhot and myself decide who the winners will be, but again the aforementioned bonus requirements will be a big factor. It will be fair, and based on quality as well as effort and other things. Don't worry, we'll be as fair as possible.
Questions? Note me if you have anything you want to ask that isn't clear.
P.S. Is it possible to be the winner even if you don't follow the themes or bonus point stuff, but it would give you better chances to follow them. Depending on feedback from this contest we may host more contests in the future, with even better prizes, including claiming a spot in the official Team Acorn. :)
Other news: Working with Sallyhot on Pages 3, 4, and 5 of Dominance while working on his Elias and Sally series. Also have one commission from Wakka that has been paid for in the works, and one from Red Panda that is still coming soon if he wishes. Poor guy has waited for months. After all that, I'll be working by myself on another comission, this time an even larger project than Dominance. It'll be a comic, my first, of course starring Sally and it's going to be 8 pages with lots of panels. All I can say for now is it's a revision of an older comic the artist wishes me to do for him.
On my youtube I made some more new videos, check them out if you have some time to kill! ^_^ This link is my Battlefield 3 Promo video I created. :P I'm no good at editing but it was fun to do. It's cool to see me play video games too, isn't it? x) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_mo2Buj0t8&feature...

Better hurry up and claim your spot before we start judging! Check out the entries submitted so far, they're all really amazing, and all brand new art of Sally. :)
