7 (who?)

COMPETITION for those interested and Artistic

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 10, 2012, 11:06 PM

So some of you may have read that I have started a new story and its going swimmingly. The ideas just keep flowing.

HOWEVER! I am having a little trouble with the characters because I can't get a clear image in my head of what I think they should look like.
Because of this I haven't a clear idea of how to describe them, as well as start getting into the personality of them.

Sooo... for all you artists out there that would like to give this a try (and I'll try to give you as much free reign because I don't want to stifle your artistic juices) I need you to design what you think the following would look like, AND if you can manage it, the scenery you believe they would occur in.

So think Nymphs

My story surrounds them as spirits/beings/magical entities tied to the earth and its health, and the transition of the four seasons.

Before you do any research just try to get an idea in your head of what you think this 'mother earth' guardian would look like
-typically Nymphs are female only but I've decided to have both sexes within the species-
Then have a look at these.… Female… Male

My Favourite depiction of a Nymph -Disney is awesome-…

^These are only a guide though, I want to see whatever comes into your own mind when picturing these elemental beings.

For the best 3 chosen their will be rewards:
1ST-1 Year subscription to D.A
2ND-6 Months subscription to D.A
3RD-3 Months subscription to D.A

Although if you already have a subscription something else can be arranged. A print you have in your wishlist may also be a prize etc.

For anyone who decides to enter just publish the entry on your profile and send me the link when you're ready. And anyone wanting more information just send me a note and I'll email right back. Also don't forget to pass this on to anyone you think would suit this competition that I haven't got as a watcher or in my watch list.

*And if anyone needs me to be more specific rather then let your own mind wander just let me know :)

The Winner will be announced on the 30th of November.

Okay so I've extended the competition because I had a few people messaging me asking for more time and I'm OK with that. Also I've advertised it in more areas so we should have some more submissions. Good luck for any and all entrants :)

I want to enter but I just remembered about it today. I'm not sure if I can get something done in 2 days time but I'll see what I can come up with. Have you ever thought about advertising this contest in different groups? That ought to get more attention :>
