Let the new Flying Koi contest begin~!!

:star:READ ALL RULES BEFORE ENTERING!:star:


:star:Subject::star:

Flying Koi Chinese New Year Valentine's!

This year, the Chinese New Year falls on Valentine's Day!
It's the Year of the Tiger! (In other words, MY year!)
It's been so long since I hosted a contest... I think this is the best time :D
Only characters from the manga Flying Koi are allowed.



:star:Prizes::star:

Winners may choose ONE of the following:

:bulletblue:1st Place:
12 month DA subscription OR $25
OR
Manga Studio Debut 4


:bulletblue:2nd Place:
3 month DA subscription
OR
commission from me worth $25

:bulletblue:Viewer's Choice:
3 month DA subscription
OR
commission from me worth $25





:star:Deadline::star:

April 10th
No more extentions~! :D




:star:Rules::star:

:bulletblue:1. Do anything involving Chinese New Year, (or Chinese stuff in general), combined with Valentine's Day and the characters from Flying Koi.
:bulletblue:2. GirlxGirl and BoyxBoy IS ALLOWED.
:bulletblue:3. Any pairing IS ALLOWED.
:bulletblue:4. You may submit up to 3 entries.
:bulletblue:5. Can be serious or comedic :D
:bulletblue:6. Must be done in your own art style!
:bulletblue:7. Doesn't have to be romantic.
:bulletblue:8. Doesn't have to involve a couple.

:star:Judging::star:

:bulletblue:1. 1st place will be the over-all best because that's who deserves to win.
:bulletblue:2. 2nd place will be the entry that stands out most to me. You don't have to be a professional artist to win 2nd place. It goes to the most creative.
:bulletblue:3. Viewer's choice is based on viewer's votes. Only the votes from my watchers count so nobody can cheat.
:bulletblue:4. You will be graded on creativity, outfits, effort, and character accuracy.
This means the characters must be in character... Tsuru can't be a tomboy for example.
You should remember key design points, like the mole on Maiko's face....




:star:How to Enter:star:

Draw the picture following the guidelines, then upload it to your DA account. When it's been uploaded, send me a note so I know to add it to the entries! :3

(Flying Koi Club members ARE allowed to upload contest entries to the club account.)

Hey I actually have my lineart done and I'm still working on the coloring... but I don't think i'll have the coloring done in time for your first deadline date Dx

I have a calculus take-home test I'm doing as I type, and since i will finish it tonight, I will definetly have time tomorrow to finish up the picture and post it for you.

Is the deadline actually extended? And if so, to when?
If not, my picture doesn't have to actually be apart of the contest (though I would like it to be) and i will just post it as fanart for you (:

Please respond ASAP!
