Contests F.A.Q.

How does this work?
Every month you will be given a theme of what you'll have to create a Manga styled entry.

Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
I'm afraid. We do not accept Fan Art or Fan Characters in our entries. We look for original art that contrain original characters and their universes.
That means, for example, your Naruto based OC isn't eligible to enter or win.

Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Your entry must be new and created for this contest. That means old artwords won't be accepted.

I've been looking through your gallery and seen the winning deviations, and I have to say I really like how everything's judged based on concpet originality and creativity instead of the artstyle itself. Looking around it seems everyone has a chance of winning as long as he/she uses his/her imagination well. I've also seen many fun themes. I'll look forward to see what everyone thinks of this month :)

NP ^^

I'm actually planning on participating this month since I love drawing hair, in fact, I've already finished my entry, though I'm going to wait a bit before contributing, might add changes xD. I'm also not really sure if my style is right for this group, I really hope it is, otherwise I have to change a lot..

You can submit it whenever you want and make all the changes you want before the deadline :heart: we won't disqualify it if you make changes or improvements in the time between submitting it and the deadline :3 I think your style fits nicely!
