I know this group has been in decline a little bit sort of community-wise; no matter how much good feeling and willing volunteers we pull in, eventually interest will wane or time with other activities will swallow us up every now and then.
We've been based on seven Eons plus Eevee for all this time, and now suddenly Sylveon has made an appearance! Right when our icon features the eight of them, our ID features the eight of them... but they're set pieces of art! We can't change those easily. (Not to mention there's no file room to add Sylveon to the icon)
However! The one big thing we can change is to include a new mascot to the team.
This contest will be short and sweet: Design a Sylveon mascot to go with the rest of our gang!
You come up with a name, gender**, age, relation. Sylveon is most likely a FLYING type.
(In regard to relation, we'd prefer that you kept the mascot as a core family member; uncle, aunt, another grandparent, or a new sibling, etc. Not as a partner or friend to the other mascots, please!)**On gender**
for the heads-up)
Sylveon is stated to be female only! I'm guessing most of you would go for female designs since it's pretty feminine as-is, though if you want to make it male or anything else, you're welcome to. Just remember that there will most likely be a male eon counterpart somewhere along the line and we will have a contest for that as a mascot too!
Deadline: March 31
ONE entry per person;
Submit to the March Contest folder! You will be told this if you send in a note or comment. We don't submit entries ourselves unless there is a gallery problem.
Design an original character of only Sylveon to be used as a new group mascot.
It must have some differences from a normal Sylveon, in color, pattern or both. The difference can be small.
Accepted mediums: Drawings (Traditional, digital and mixed media) only, thank you~
Also for the sake of simplicity, no gijinkas for this one, sorry!
The work MUST be submitted to dA after March 11. Otherwise, it won't have been specifically for this contest! You must draw your OWN entry! No game sprites allowed!
Try and make this your best work! This is a contest, after all. Colour would be wonderful, but isn't strictly necessary. There is no limit to artistic talent, but we do not want to be seeing sketches on lined paper. Have some pride for the club!
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask! But be sure to check if the question you're asking hasn't already been said and answered by someone else.
Voting will begin and continue through April.
Currently there are no prizes! Winner will have their entry used as the group's official new mascot.
Sorry about the default skin, we've run out of super status and currently cannot afford another.
Looking forward to your entries!
