Dragon Art Contest2 - original art only - Vector, painted, raster

Contest Brief

This is a repost of a previous contest where most of the entries were clip art and unchanged stock vectors. Freelancer suggested that I post a new contest.

Please be aware that this is for a T-shirt that will be sold and all the "free" and "premium" stock providers have in their agreements that the design may NOT be used for products to be sold or distributed. Nor do they allow the transfer or assignment of the design.

Simply put. Do NOT enter something that is in whole, or in part, any kind of stock vector or image. This includes tracing an existing design and making a vector from it. Do NOT enter any art or design unless you personally created it. No exceptions. There are many tools to check if images are copied and I used these tools.

This is a contest for a design that will be used on a t-shirt and possibly other products for the purpose of selling them. The theme is "Dragon"

Have fun with this and be creative and original. I am looking for art that is suitable to be printed on T-shirts. You can include words or a slogan if you feel it enhances the design or no words and just the art. I prefer a transparent background but will consider art with a background. It can be funny, serious, cartoonish, or realistic, I prefer "western" dragons that you would expect to see in a high-fantasy game or movie. It should be visually appealing. Think: What "Dragon" art would look cool on a T-shirt?

Besides the contest winner, I may choose to contact runners up about purchasing their art in a separate Freelancer project if the art is compelling.

I am looking for multiple designs for multiple themes and will be on the lookout for providers of art in future projects.

Upon winning the contest, you will supply the design files. Your design, illustration, or vector should be your original work and not something procured from a stock image company or someone else own the rights to all, or part, of the artwork. Repeat - NO STOCK VECTORS OR IMAGES will be considered. On providing me the design files, I will have the full rights of using the art for marketing, merchandise, or any other purpose.

If vector please make it fit inside a 4:5 aspect ratio (4 wide to 5 high). If you win you will supply the design in a .ai (with layers) format and a .eps format.

If Raster or digital illustration you please make it fit inside a 2400px (wide) by 3000px (high) file in a .PSD format including the individual layers.

No Flat images. I will check the layers.

Forgive me if I seem very picky about no stock but in the last contest, many entries were made pretending it to be their own work. For liability reasons I can not and will not use copied work.

Good luck! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

      Deeksha use your watermark all over your design no shame in that! Also if you think it's not working out for the host you can withdraw the submission later... Plus it will be obvious if someone copies other user's work and posts it they probably won't be awarded.

    Do Not Seal. save your money...a serious artist can seal their own entry for a few bucks. Sealing will only encourage thieves...ooops....artist (as they call themselves) googling and copying other's work. :P

      I am in shock, humbly it take me at least 5 or 6 hours in a simple illustration and seeing that some upload up to 5 complex designs that would take several days, makes you think badly of anyone.

      if you have any sense of observation then Bangladesh and Pakistanis top that category or whatever bs you're talking about. Only they are adamant enough to fool people by the use of stock content until they do.
