Contest Brief

Bogusta Valentine's Day Contest
I'd like an illustration of my husband and my original characters in a romantic situation together. Kissing, holding hands, whispering to each other, sitting close at the park, or playing a fun game together... if it sounds cute then I'd love to see it! <3

RULES:
1. Final Illustration Dimensions MUST BE 11 inches x 16 Inches OR 16 x 11 inches. ( Portrait or landscape orientation both okay. ) The reason for this is I will be ordering the final image on a custom mousepad later ( [url removed, login to view] )
2. DPI/Resolution must be at least 150 dpi or more
3. Sexy is fine, but no R-18/Explicit/NSFW
4. Don't make Augusta skinny! Augusta is chubby/plus size/overweight.
5. Don't include the weapons/keyblades ( Copyright Issues ), just the characters.


YOU CAN:
- Draw them in different outfits or original outfits
- Draw them in different settings and time periods
- Draw them cartoony, anime, comic book, gothic, whatever style you'd like
- Have a simple single color background or a complex environmental background
- Include magic. Augusta is an ice and air mage/witch. Bo can cast any kind of magic.
- Draw Bo with an open shirt or semi-unbuttoned shirt.
- Draw them older
- Draw them younger
- Use bases IF you legally own the right to use them
-Enter as many times as you'd like

I look forward to your entries! With your help I hope to make an unforgettable one of kind gift he'll treasure for years! Thank you so much for considering my contest!

    Oh, I have another question!

    I loved the RPG fantasy references (the witches and rogues illustrations)

    tho, I'm wondering how much do you want to preserve the original illustration style of your OC's

    I know I know, I read the rules and I see that in the 3rd item of the "you can do this" section its stated that different styles and approaches can be followed..

    dunno, maybe I just want some reatfirmation x)

    It's just that I'm dying to make an illustration in that style x)

    sealing the contest is an option that allows designs to be uploaded but only you can see them, so other designers do not copy one's idea ... #sealed #sealed

      It costs $30 to seal the contest, which is a third of the entire budget. Additionally, since this contest is based off of figure drawing ability, it's going to be impossible for contests to actually copy each other like they might in a logo contest. I don't see any reason to seal it. ( Also, your profile says your do dubbing, not art, so it's probably not a contest you'll participate in anyways? )

    Hello! do you have preferences on the typology of figure? For example, you prefer the whole figure, half figure or only portrait? or is it to our choice? :) thanks!

      Any type of figure is fine. Your choice.
