Watchers' Contest Time!

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 14, 2015, 4:27 PM


Alright guys!  Votes are in.. the contest theme will be.. *drumroll*.. Mythical Creatures! :dummy:

Deadline for this contest will be March 15th.  This will give you about 2 months to submit your entry!  I am flexible to moving this deadline if enough people would like it changed!

Rules:
  1. You must be a watcher!  This contest is my "thank you" to all the people who have shown support during my time here :)
  2. You must have an address I can send your prize to, should you win!
  3. Any art medium will be accepted.
  4. You can be as creative as you want with this theme.  It is up to your interpretation!  Mentioning where your inspiration comes from, the story behind your work, etc. will up your chances!
  5. Fan-art or art inspired by a fandom will be accepted if it is related to the theme.
  6. If you use a pattern, stock, etc. please give proper credit!
  7. Entries must be made for this contest (anything made before this journal posting will not be accepted).
  8. Multiple winners may be chosen depending on the number of entries!
  9. Submit by commenting with a link to your deviation in this journal.  Be sure to indicate in your deviation description that you are entering in this contest!
  10. Only one entry per person will be accepted, so be sure to submit your best work!
  11. Entries will be judged based on creativity, quality of work, and presentation!
Prize:

I may choose multiple winners or there may be second, third, etc. places chosen if there are enough entries!  First prize will be a crocheted chibi/baby/derpy mythical creature.  I will allow the winner to give me some input on what kind of creature, special details to include, pose, etc.  Other places (second, third, etc.) will get surprise prizes from me!

Also, it will take me some time to design and create prizes after winners are chosen, but fear not, because your patience will pay off! :la:

All submissions will be featured in a journal at the end of the contest!


Good luck everyone!  I'll update this journal periodically with submissions and any details I may have forgotten!

I've always wanted to learn how to crochet and about three years ago (er.. Spring of 2011), I finally had the time to crack open some books and start learning (In hindsight, Youtube might have been much easier). After a lot of practice making scarves, I began making plushes and have stuck mostly with that ever since (it's just so satisfying getting a toy after all that work :D). I focus on making animated/fan art characters because I enjoy working on them. The majority of these are my own original patterns besides a couple with link references to the patterns.

Regarding patterns, I have a few posted up. Because I learned so much from patterns that many people generously shared online, I'm hoping to give back a little by sharing some too :) I don't write all of them down though because I sometimes don't know how to describe what I'm doing when they get too complicated and I start winging things. I'm working on it though!

As for commissions, unfortunately, I don't do those. I don't really know how to set a price that would be fair for both parties and I just don't have the time! I will probably be much less productive for some time since I'm currently in dental school, but I'll be needing my study breaks :)

Thanks for the page visit :D

P.S. Please excuse my lack of photography skills!


If you would like to make a donation to fuel my yarn addiction and for the free patterns, I would be ever-so grateful! :dummy:

All of your patterns and plushies are ace! I want to try them all, but I can't decide who to do first. You're an awesomely talented person, and I thank you for sharing.
