Art contest - Toys

Postby bloodjelly » Tue Nov 21, 2006 12:28 am

Theme: Toys
Medium: Any
Deadline: January 9, 2007
Prize: 1st: $50 Dick Blick gift certificate & a free Resident membership for 3 months.
2nd & 3rd: A free Resident membership for 3 months.

Alright folks, time for another contest! Holiday contests on Foundmyself are usually a little different than the others we have throughout the year, and this year's no exception.

The rules are fairly easy - submit a piece of art having to do with toys. The differences in this contest are that:

A) The winner will be chosen by a public vote held after the close of the contest, from January 3rd - January 5th; and

B) All art submitted with a story of how you used your entry to help someone or something will get a 20% vote increase based on total votes.

So, if your piece ends up getting 5 votes out of 20 total, you will effectively have 9 votes (your 5 votes plus 20% of the total (4)). Plus, a good story along with your art might help get your more votes, regardless.

What constitutes a good deed? Use your imagination. Whatever you truly think in your heart of hearts is a good deed will work. Maybe you could give your painting to a senior center in need of some artwork for their walls; maybe you could sell your art and give the money to charity; maybe you could make your art out of seeds and plant the thing! A good deed isn't required but it will help your chances at winning.


Also, everyone who enters will get 500 Art Dollars once the contest ends. OK, get to it! :)

Same as the other contests - just post your art to this thread, along with your story if you have it. After the contest ends we'll start a new, clean thread for voting. :)

i got rave reactions at work. the ladies kept on saying how much they loved it.
makes an author's effort worth it.
seems i am on a roll with the muse.
anyway, thanks a bunch for the pat on the back.
i created another one this weekend named
DIAMUND-OO'S WISH. OR JUST DIAMUND-OO.

having a friend with a girl's struggle of growing up was something for a teen to know. then she got them all when she became the woman they all dreamed of being. i still laugh at the revenge she got in becoming the babe every single guy in school wanted to date.

Cinderella would have been jealous!

Nice stories you guys, but if you read the rules of the contest, the "story" is basically an explanation of how you used your art in the contest to help someone. It's not just a story you made up. You can still complete the second part of the contest with your art so far, and the story and the graphics you've posted will be seen as one complete piece of art.
