Team Acorn Christmas Contest! Apply now!

Okay guys and gals! It's time for the second official Team Acorn art contest! We hope this time around it'll be even bigger and better! Here are the rules:

What: The second Team Acorn hosted art contest. Again it's to draw Sally, naughty or not, whatever you prefer!

Theme and Bonus: The theme is obviously Christmas. Draw some snow, a Santa outfit, whatever you can come up with to make it feel like Christmas! You don't have to have the Christmas theme if you don't want to, but it will help a LOT to include the theme. The bonus this time is a lot more flexible than simply tentacles from the Halloween contest. To earn bonus points to your overall score, you have to include toys. Find interesting and unique ways... to implement toys(sexual pun intended, but isn't limited to adult toys :P You can use kids toys too...). The more creative, the more you earn. :)

When: Again, this time around it'll be a little different. Instead of simply submitting your artwork when you're ready, you're going to wait till the due date to do so. Applying for the contest begins now, the 15th/16th of November, and ends December 16th. Then, the submissions will be accepted from December 20-25.

Applying: To apply, say you're applying in the comments below, and you will be entered into the contest with your name placed in this journal below. After that it's up to you to get your art done in time! If you wish to be an anonymous entrant, send me a note that you're entering but don't want your name public.

Submitting your entry: On December 20th, I will make a new Journal for your contest submissions. You will post a link to your submissions there, that's it!

Rules: Just like last time, there aren't many rules. Nothing too vulgar, no gore or shemale Sally. Yucky. You can draw other characters, even fan characters. The more effort you put into it, the more score you get, so go nuts! Just remember the main focus is SALLY ACORN. :) Also I would like to address a couple of issues we ran into the last contest. As of this contest and onward, you are not allowed to simply post Sally art that was never intended to be an entry to the contest. We had a couple of people the last time, make some Sally art and decide to enter it into the contest for the heck of it. Sorry but that isn't going to cut it this time. If your submission isn't for the contest, do NOT submit it. Also, you CAN work as a team for a submission, but it counts as one entry only.

Judging: The way it works is a points system I developed, which gives score to several categories ranging from effort, to backgrounds, etc. So give it your best, and you'll do fine.

Winners and Prize: What's a contest without prizes! Like the last time, there will be 3 winners. The 3 will have their submission posted on the Team Acorn website. The number 1 winner will get to cherry pick their prize between money, free art from the Team, or free art from yours truly. :P

Any questions? Note me and I'll get back to you soon! Good luck! And have fun!

Hm. I find myself at a crossroads. On one hand, I'd love to do something for this. On the other hand, not to sound arrogant, but I would really hate to lower the chances of someone less experienced getting the prize. Hmn...

but isn't that the point of a contest?
wow... i sounded horrible rite there...
but you get what i mean X3

Thing is, I don't really subscribe to a Darwinist doctrine. There've been many prizes I could have won in the past, but instead chose to, say, do an art trade with that artist instead- because that was more accessible to me than it might've been to them. That's always seemed more fair.

Not to butt in Norithics but are you by chance referring to me? my skills are low to the point where i still don't know how to fully use PaintTool SAI but regardless win or lose ill try any ways. the prizes do sound good and all but ill accept what happens and hold my head up high.

And if your not referring to me then im just hear for a conversation. ^^_

Nope, I'm referring to any and everybody. Fact is, contests tend to be a thing for up-and-coming artists to brandish their skills and really work hard for a concrete goal! I don't like muddying the waters.

Lol true. but im not gonna let myself get a swelled head only to be brought down by it should i lose and having some one of higher skill will force me to try even harder. true im still low on the artist list and or a long way from actually calling myself one but all and all i just see this as a good way to test my skill and drive myself to 1up as well. but really right now im just excited. quick heads up to ya that my skills tend to 1up if i feel like im backed into a corner and ill go down swinging with my entry pic in one hand and mouse in the other. good luck to ya. ^^_

Less experienced or more experienced, the point is to draw Sally and have fun with it! It's not all about how good it looks. Don't feel like you're holding anyone back. The entries are very fair when being judged. Trust me.

... Well, if you're sure! Then alright, I'd be glad to make an entry. It'll knock your fuzzy socks off!
