Title: (ENDED) Fate's Whiskers - a tarot-themed art contest!
Post by: rowan on September 03, 2015, 04:32:43 PM
Fate's Whiskers
a tarot-themed art contest

Overview

This is an art contest. The goal of this contest is to design a tarot card featuring a canon cat (or a few of them). Keep in mind the symbolism in each card - for meanings, I suggest Aeclectic's guide here (http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/learn/meanings/), if you're not quite sure what each card represents.

There are no set dimensions - you could do a pixel one if you wanted, or a larger one - as long as it's portrait-oriented (i.e. the width is less than the height of the image).

Rules/Guidelines

  • Art submitted must follow forum guidelines (http://forum2.warriorswish.net/index.php?topic=6.0).
  • You may only submit one piece for this contest.
  • You may not trace, copy, or use another's work.
  • Multiple people can draw for the same card - if two people want to do the 6 of Swords, they can.
  • A description of your card would be appreciated - the cat featured, and why you chose that cat.
  • You don't have to use the characters in the CotC TAROT set for the Major Arcana - if you think another cat fits the card you want to draw better, feel free to use them.
  • The card can be formatted however, as long as the name of the card is somewhere (or is clearly shown - i.e. if your card was the 5 of pents, you would just need to draw five pentacles somewhere, and maybe put the number on the card on the top/bottom).
  • You can draw either a Minor or Major Arcana card! You don't need to do the Major ones if you don't want to.
  • Artwork can be digital or traditional.

I'd like to reserve a spot, mainly because if I don't post something, chances are I'm going to forget to finish. I'm about halfway through, but I still have half a character and a background to finish- but I'm really proud of what I have so far!!

I mean, I should be done by... Sunday, I'm hoping. It all depends on whether or not things play out how they're supposed to this week when it comes to my days off. If not, then it'll be complete by next Thursday (not the 10th; I mean the 17th), for sure. =)

I wasn't sure if I could reserve a spot if I didn't have my entry finished but could I do the same as Lightning and reserve a spot too? I'm working on my entry and I know it's gonna be awhile until I'm done

Yeah, that's fine! If, by the deadline, anyone's got a reservation but hasn't finished, I'll extend it a week or two before calling it done.

@altias

After looking at my schedule for the next week or two, I'm sorry, but I'm going to need to bow out of this one. I only have off two days this week (which essentially is Monday night and Friday night), and after a bit of an episode I had last night, I'm not feeling emotionally up to finishing my art right now. I'm sorry! =(

It's alright!! Sorry to see ya go!

Quick announcement: I will be extending the contest to this Saturday (Oct. 17). There were only 2 entries as of yesterday, so I'm extending in the hopes that other people will enter so that 3rd place can happen.

Alright gang! Now that it's the deadline, I'm putting up a poll with each entrant's name as an option. Vote for whoever you think did the best, or whose was your favorite for any reason at all. Entrants can vote, but preferably for other entrants, not themselves. The voting period will end on Saturday, October 24th.

Votes will be hidden until the end of the contest.
