Well, it’s the 1st of the month, I’ve reached 91 watchers, it’s nearly the end of the semester, I’ve got a story and a species just begging to be shared, and I’ve got a cool bunch of friends I can plead with to participate, so why not hold a three-part event??
You can win a kiriban, design a new OC to keep, or draw your OCs with mine for points, art, and short stories!update 6/6:

; contest #1 over, contest #3 canceled; contest #2 extended until the 31st of July
update 30/7: remember to ask to an extension if you want one!
update 31/7: briefly extended for a day or two as per request.
update 3/8: CONTEST CLOSED!! If anyone is already working on an entry I might accept it within a day, but ultimately yaaaay its over! Thank you everyone for entering. I'll do my best to get the winners up shortly. Because there were...10 participants, I think, the short story raffle will go ahead as well. My internet is a bit dodgy right now, but I hope I'll be able to sort everything out soon.
Contest 1: Kiriban @ 10k pageviews!
Contest 2: Design your own Storyteller OC!
Storytellers are my closed species, originating from my novel. A relatively simple description of them can be found here. Feel free to ask me questions!
Aim: design a Storyteller OC, and invent a detailed personality/background for them. As Storytellers can be human, semi-human, or inhuman (including animals and non-organic species), the important part is their personality, and how you convey it through their design. Once you design your character, they're all yours to interact with other Storytellers, or do what you will!
- characters will primarily be judged on character creation/development, and not artistic skill
- treat your new OC as an adoptable character, and please remember to credit me for the species ideas. You may not sell the character, although gifting and trading is fine provided I am notified.
- personally, one of my favourite things about Storytellers is their ability to play on character tropes and stereotypes. Be creative!
- I love diverse characters, including in body type, race, and particularly facial features
- here's a sample profile for the sort of things you might include
To participate: comment below,
watch meyou don't have to do that anymore, and make a journal/poll promoting this event!
Prizes: every character submitted gets a bust sketch like this and a feature in my journal. My favourite three characters will win the following:
- 300 points from me
- 1 hip-up drawing of their new character like this
- 1 bust sketch of their new character like this
- 2 fullbodies of any characters like this, OR 1 complex scene like this including 1 character
- 1 chibi like this of any character, OR any 2 of my open adoptables in here
- 1 waist-up drawing and 1 bust sketch from RealityMisfit
- a llama and a watch from me
- I may also draw some of your Storytellers interacting with my Storytellers sometime, if their owners give the OK
***If there are 9 entrants or more, one random entrant will win a 750 word short story from me featuring their new character in whatever situation they choose a bit like this
Entries here - 8 so far!
One more entry and the short story raffle will go ahead!
Contest 3: Crossover mayhem hell yeah!
- contest #2 will end on the 31st of July 2015, which gives you...like, two months
- contest #1 will go until the kiriban is reached
- if contest #2 or #3 receive less than 5 entrants by the deadline, the smaller event will be canceled and everyone who participated will win two bust sketches
- if anyone wants to donate prizes I will love you forever. You can enter and donate prizes as well
- by the same token, I don't mind negotiating with prizes if there you see something in my gallery of what you believe is equivalent value
- you may enter contest #2 up to three times, but you can only win once
- the same person may win all three contests, theoretically
if you're unbelievably awesome
- please make sure I see your entry(ies) by linking me in these comments
- written and drawn (traditional and digital) profiles, or a combination of the two, are all accepted!
- bases are allowed, but please do put effort into your submission(s)
- ASK QUESTIONS!
- have fun~~
I haven't designed this as a simple "draw my OC" competition because I believe that this way you get something out of it just by participating - whether it's a new OC, or an awesome drawing of your current OCs in a new situation. I hope you enjoy yourselves!
