|When you use my stuff:|
Please link back to the original, or provide the web address if you are posting to a site that does not allow linking.
Please respect my characters, stories, research, and anything else you find here, and do not claim them as your own.
When you make art for me:
If I use it publicly, you will be credited and probably linked to. If I use it privately--as a reference for someone else to draw from, for example--you may not be credited... but the next artist I'm commissioning could probably care less about who drew the refs, and if they do care, they'll ask me.
If I want to post it somewhere where it might be misunderstood as my own work, I will talk to you about it first and get explicit permission.
If I want to proportionally re-size it or turn it into a thumbnail (that links back to the full-sized image), I will not ask you. If I want to crop it or add text, I will ask you first, because I can never remember who has what rules about their art.
I consider it a crime to stretch an image out of proportion, and I will never do that.
If you have any questions, feel free to Note/IM/PM/MM/email me.
It must be menswear (model can be cis or trans, but the design must emphasize a flat chest and narrow hips).
The main color must be green.
Age of the wearer (from infant to old man) is up to you!
Accent colors, accessories, era, and style is up to you!
All entries must be posted on dA before 11:59pm EST March 9 2016.
All entries must be linked in a Note to me or a comment in this journal before 11:59pm EST March 10, 2016.
By entering this contest, you give me all usage rights to your outfit design (except to show as a sample of your own work). In other words, if you are one of the winners and I use your outfit design for one or more of my own original characters, you cannot then demand royalties for the use of the design. As I only intend to use the winning designs, all non-winners will get those rights returned to them at the end of the contest.
You can enter as many designs as you like, but you can only win one prize.
Each design must be uploaded separately.
You must use a visual medium (no music, no literature; we must be able to see the design). B+w is acceptable, if you label the colors. Unusual mediums, such as sculpture and mixed media, are welcome!
All entries must be your OWN original work. Any accusations of fraud will be investigated. Likewise, if you use stock photos or brushes, or if you design but someone else presents it (by creating a CG image from your crayon sketch or doll clothing from your design), give full credit.
Tips For Winning:
Submit your design as soon as you have it! The more time I have to think about it, the more likely it will win.
Submit multiple designs! You can only win one prize, but if I like more than one design, I will buy the others from you.
Be different! If your first design is a business suit, try casual clothes or pajamas for your second. If everyone is designing for a young man, try an old man or a child. Try darker or paler colors, fashion from history or from the future, from your brother's closet or from a foreign culture. Take inspiration from animals, weather, technology, and objects around you! Unique ideas are more interesting to me.
No, really, be different! If two (or more) designs are very similar, I will only look at the oldest. This is to prevent idea theft.
Claim your prize! Seriously... every time I host a contest, someone wins but then does not respond when I ask them which prize they want (money or dA points).
