Thank you and my most sincere apologies to everyone for being patient with me. It’s just been really crazy with back to school stuff.




:star:Contest Theme:star:
:bulletgreen:Avengers in Another Era:bulletgreen:

:star:Deadline:star:
:bulletgreen:Monday, October 15st:bulletgreen:

:star:Contest Medium:star:
:bulletgreen:Visual Art (Drawing, painting, ect.)
:bulletgreen:Literature

:star:Acceptable Characters:star:
:bulletblue:Iron Man/Tony Stark
:bulletblue:Captain America/Steve Rogers
:bulletblue:Thor
:bulletblue:Hulk/Bruce Banner
:bulletblue:Black Widow/Natasha Romanov
:bulletblue:Hawk Eye/Clint Barton
:bulletblue:Nick Fury
:bulletblue:Phil Coulson
:bulletblue:Maria Hill
:bulletblue:Miscellaneous S.H.E.I.L.D. Peoples (as in like random agents)
:bulletblue: Pepper Potts
:bulletblue:Loki

This is an Avengers group after all. So that means no Spiderman. Also, just chatacters specific to The Avengers movie. So no Jane or Peggy either.





:star:Rules:star:
:bulletpurple:Mature content is accepted but no nudity or intense sexual themes. Also, make sure it's tagged.
:bulletpurple:You must create something new for this contest. So nothing posted before August 25th.
:bulletpurple:You must pick one medium for your entry. Meaning you cannot submit a drawing & writing.
:bulletpurple:You have to have at least one of the acceptable characters in your entry.

Literature specific rules
:bulletpurple:No word limit, but you can only submit ONE entry. Meaning no multi-chapter stories UNLESS it fits into one literature submission. DeviantArt has a 65,535 character limit on literature submission. So as long as you stay under that, you’ll be fine.
:bulletpurple:You cannot edit a pervious multi-chapter story to make it fit into one submission.

Visual art specific rules
:bulletpurple:No bases, it has to be original.

A few other miscellaneous things
:bulletred:As for judging, it will be a group vote, but the method will depend on the amount of entries we get.
:bulletred:Visual art will be judged with visual art & literature will be judged with literature.

:star:You MUST submit your entries into the contest folder. Your entry will not be judged if it’s not in the folder.:star:

:star:Also, to the prize donators, I’ll be giving you guys your own little prize as a thank you for donating. More on that when I send out a note to you all after voting to remind you of your prizes & of whom to send them to.

Peace and Love!

Hi! I was wondering if it's possible to get a deadline extension for the contest?
If it's not possible I understand, but I at least had to ask. ^^

Does "another era" mean another era in America or another era anywhere in the world (another culture) ??

Any world era. Like ancient Greece or American 40's or Victorian England.

Nope that counts as a base. It has to be 100% original work (references are fine though)

Since this is in a different era, would a Merlin crossover be acceptable?
Reply
:iconpyromaniac042:
pyromaniac042 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hmmm. I'm going to have to say no. 1 because crossover was a contest idea and 2 because it's only characters specific to the avengers movie. Maybe next time, but we're trying to be simple since this is the first contest. This is a learning process for me. Thank you for asking :)

Alright question 2: can I still use knights in my drawing as long as they aren't any of king Arthur's nights? I'm going for around that time period and how people then would react to the Avengers characters.
Reply
:iconpyromaniac042:
pyromaniac042 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah that's fine. They just can't be specific Merlin characters. Random knights are fine.

You can choose as many or as little as you want. As long as there's at least one character from that list in your entry, it's fine :)

This is probably a stupid question but when you say "no base, must be original", you can use reference, right?

I got my entry half done, but used ref for the clothes and such, saw this and got worried. >.>

pyromaniac042 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
References are completely fine! I mean bases like where the body is already done & you just draw clothes & hair over it. :)

Quick question(s): Are art entries allowed to incorporate words into the picture? And are we allowed to put in an explanation of he idea in the artist's comment or is that considered a writing piece?
Reply
:iconpyromaniac042:
pyromaniac042 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sure, just use you're judgement on whether or not you think you should tag it as mature or not. (I probably wouldn't)
That's fine. It more of you can't submit an actual literature submission & a visual art piece. You can write as much as you want in the artist comments.
Hope that answered everything :)

Since there are already a lot of prize donates, I'm going to say no. But, I'm planning on having another contest at the end of October or November. So I can ask you first when the time comes if you're still interested. Thank you for offering though!

"This is an Avengers group after all. So that means no Spiderman"
Could you not just say that you are a group that focuses on the Avengers movie, so no other Marvel characters? After all, the original Avengers founding line-up was the Hulk, Iron Man, Wasp, Giant Man, A-Bomb and Thor. Though the Hulk left very Quickly to be replaced by Rodgers

I don't know a lot of the original character. I'm just going off the movie. This group is mainly focused around the movie. For this contest, it'll just be like that. Maybe a future contest will include all Marvel characters. But I wanted to keep it simple since this is the first contest.

MakeMeButterfly Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I get that it's a movie group, i just think that saying Spiderman is not an acceptable character because it's an Avengers group is a slightly void point, since he was an honorary avenger, which is why i suggested that point be tweaked.

Can we submit a drawing that has dialogue (writing) in the picture itself? Or do you mean we just can't write a fanfic in the artist's comments?
Reply
:iconpyromaniac042:
pyromaniac042 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, dialogue is fine on a drawing. Example, a comic would still be part of the visual art category. Or even just a little speech bubble is fine.

You can also write a little fanfic in the comments if you wanted to. It's not part of the actual entry so that's fine.

Sorry that's not very good explaining. I'm really bad at explaining stuff D:
