is holding this contest
Since so many people were willing to enter to the contest, I decided to hold one!
Thanks for the support guys!
This is the first time I do something like this, so I'm not very experienced on the matter; I'll try to do my best and if this one goes well I might hold another one ayntime
The theme of this contest will be Culture and History .
It's simple; you have to choose a certain theme and represent it with all the creativity you want.
The most important rule of this contest is that your art must feature at least ONE of the following characters:
Islas Malvinas/Falkland Islands [link]
What kind of media do I have to use to enter to the contest?
You can do Digital art, Traditional art, or if you don't want to draw, you can write fanfiction too! Things like one-shots or poetry are perfectly fine to enter the contest; this is not just for people who have art skills.
You can draw short or long comics, chibi pictures, fullbody pictures, whatever you feel like doing!
BUT your art must be colored. I will not accept messy sketches or linearts, putting effort in your entry helps a lot when it comes to deciding the winner. I value efffort more than skills.
What kind of themes can I choose to represent?
Since the subject of this contest is Culture and History , you can choose:
-A cultural trait from any of the countries previously mentioned, such as clothing, music, poetry, food, drinks, cool places, literature, traditions, etc!
For example, you can draw/write about Peru's incredible gastronomy, or Brazil's traditional carnival (or draw him only wearing a zunga//shot)
This does not mean you have to draw something that belongs to just ONE country! You can represent multiple things at once, you can include other nations if necessary (let's say you want to draw about Brazil's coffee and for some reason you want to add Colombia too, you can do it!)
You can include other hetalia oc's (of course, giving the credit to their author) and canon hetalia characters, but you work will have to be focused on at least one of my characters.
-A certain moment in History :a certain decade, a certain war, the relationship between two or more characters, political affairs, moments in history that you find interesting, etc!
You can choose any moment from any historical period; for example, you can draw/write about chibi Argentina when she was a viceroyalty and portray her relationship with Spain or other colonies; or maybe you can talk about the first World Cup held in Uruguay in 1930; etc.
There are plenty of history facts that you can search about on internet, try looking for curiosities from those countries and represent one that you find interesting; feel free to choose any theme! Be creative! And make sure you have fun while doing it
Are there any restrictions when it comes to portraying my idea?
Not really! You can draw/write about pairings (ANY pairing you like! It can be boyxboy, girlxgirl or boyxgirl; it's not necessary for me to ship them
) , fluffy/romantic things, funny or crack things, angsty stuff, you can include as many characters as you want, don't be afraid to include your own oc if you have one and you feel like drawing them too! Canonxoc or ocxoc is also allowed.
Just make sure you respect deviantART's rules: don't steal art, don't trace, don't post sexually explicit stuff and respect everyone else who is participating in the contest. Bases are allowed but I really don't like bases so I don't recommend using them
How many entries can I make?
As much as you want! But I'll only choose one of them when I choose the winners
When is the deadline?
There is no deadline yet!
There will not be a deadline until I have AL LEAST eight entries, if I happen to have eight entries on this contest I will announce the deadline, depending when that happens, it might be in July; since I'll have more time to draw the prizes because I have a winter break on that month.
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
And now the part everyone cares about
-One full body+background drawing of any character you want (oc or canon, it doesn't have to be from Hetalia, I can draw other fandoms too)
-One half body+background picture of your otp or any pairing you really like (it can be hetero or homosexual) (it can be ocxoc, ocxcanon, canonxcanon, not necesarilly hetalia) unless it's usuk, I will never draw usuk in any of its forms, sorry..
-A Chibi picture of your otp OR two separate chibis if you want.
! ( ;u; I hate giving my points away but I suck at doing prizes)
-One half body+background drawing of any character you want (oc or canon, not only from hetalia)
-A chibi picture of your hetalia otp OR two separate chibis (ocxoc, ocxcanon, canonxcanon, hetero or homo except usuk)
-A Chibi picture of your favourite hetalia pairing.
-A Chibi picture of any character you want.
EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATES WILL HAVE A LITTLE SPECIAL REWARD (it's a surprise, I won't tell you until the contest finishes
I hope you participate
and it would be awesome if you could advertise my contest in your journals or something! I'm kinda shy to do it myself shdksfsdfsd
