  • czaszukaczaszuka Member Posts: 2

  • PatBrutalPatBrutal Member Posts: 566

    @Patricia If an Artwork has a front and backside, is it allowed to put the pics to one together?

  • Sus_aenSus_aen Member Posts: 47

    I can join the cosplay and the artwork? :)

  • GonzolaxGonzolax Member Posts: 41

    I tried something SFM related, is it good for the contest?

  • ShakiiShakii Member Posts: 15

    Would a 5 second .gif or .mp4 loop be appropriate here? I don't think that what would amount to adding a little bit of animation to a still image would count as a proper video for the video contest...

    Since I have nearly no experience with digital art, nor do I have the recommended tools, could I instead take a picture of my charcoal artwork and post it here for the entry?

    What's wrong with the forum? When I try to edit my own thread for artwork contest, sometimes it applies immediately otherwise prompts await for moderation approval then removed from the thread list? I repost it and the same thing happened.

    hey yesterday i posted my art in the section but today it was deleted, what is wrong? what i did wrong? can i post again?

  • ElkElk Member Posts: 2,267

    So i'm confused. Can you join more than one contest? Like the Art, In-game cosmetic, Cosplay and Video. Or do you have to do only one? Sorry if this is really obvious.

  • PatBrutalPatBrutal Member Posts: 566

    You can join more than one contest, yes :)

  • PatBrutalPatBrutal Member Posts: 566

    @myers_obsession yes that's okay !

  • TheLegendarySkittleTheLegendarySkittle Member Posts: 2

    It says that I must prove that I drew the cosmetic. How should I do that? Should I add my email address or username? What should I do?

  • PatBrutalPatBrutal Member Posts: 566

    @TheLegendarySkittle Do you have in photos the process of your cosmetic that you created ?

  • TerrorTrooperTerrorTrooper Member Posts: 94

    how is art (physically made) judged with digital art (layers, possible copy/paste and re-edit to make it your own, etc) when making decisions for placements for prizes? Guessing uniqueness could have a factor if it don't look as polished up as digital?

    Sorry to bug you dev-community manager. Had these questions in mine when I viewed peoples art, and going over the rules. Some don't own good devices that can handle the digital art software.

    What countries are eligible to participate? Not all all countries are eligible for Cosmetics contest, so...

    There is no restriction about which countries can participate. These contests are open for everyone.

    Is that ok to edit your image after posting it? I'd like to post what I have so far so people can help me to improve my artwork with suggestions.

  • PatBrutalPatBrutal Member Posts: 566

    Editing you mean removed the one you have at the moment? If yes, I would let this one and add a comment on the other to mention which one we will need to verify for the contest.

  • CarrotpotataoCarrotpotatao Member Posts: 1

    What are the exact restrictions on the art? Are 2 relating drawings within 1 drawing, forming a "comic", allowed? Or must it be 1 whole drawing?

    I hope I'm making sense.

    I'm lucky that I read this, because I was just inspirated in a boring chemistry lecture today :D

  • MduckMduck Member Posts: 7

    Can the title has anything else written on it beside the user name?

  • PoweasPoweas Member Posts: 5,873

    @Sus_aen that's actually amazing. WOW.

  • PatBrutalPatBrutal Member Posts: 566

    @Sus_aen Did you send your artwork in the right section? If yes i'm going to remove this one here because it's the contest rules only.

  • Sus_aenSus_aen Member Posts: 47

    @Patricia yeah you can delete this :) please ~

    @Patricia Hi, just wanted to confirm the exact cut off time? I'm in a different time zone so the 21st is tomorrow (less than 12h away). Would it be possible to get a confirmed due date time as I think I'll be a little down to the wire.

    Is it just 12:00am 20th June or 2pm 21st etc and is this EST? Would just be nice to have a concrete time so I don't accidentally miss it. Otherwise I'll push to submit tonight to be super safe.
