Default Miss TDP-Handdrawn Round Three - 09-01-2009, 11:13 PM

Welcome to the first ever Miss TDP competition! Before continuing to the theme for round three, we ask that all members read the following rules and procedures if they are competing.

Due to a drop out, there was no voting elimination for the last round, but there will be in the next round. The following members are still competing in this competition and are the only ones allowed to post here:
  • antimaie
  • Aussiemum777
  • Elanorea
  • Heva_Banana_Mad
  • Silent_Wolf
  • TheHayleyDoll
THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD NOR THE PLACE TO SUBMIT DOLLMAKER ENTRIES! Before you post here, I suggest you stop. All non-entry posts will be deleted. If you have questions, direct them to Silver_Wolf_Kitty. If you want to discuss the contest, the official Miss TDP clique(found here) is suggested.

Rules
1. Character. When entering Miss TDP, you need to enter with one character and stay with it the entire time. This means that your doll’s hair, eye, and skin colour must remain the same throughout, unless otherwise stated in the round theme.
2. Base. You must use the same base set throughout, so pick one with a variety of poses. This base should also be medium in size for handdrawn dollers (comparable in size to the "Moe" bases here: DHF : Doll on the Hill Factory). Dollmaker users should use the shuni style base.
3. Theft. No stealing the work of another. This applies to both handdrawn and dollmaker participants, so do not submit a doll that someone else made or, for handdrawn dollers, mix and match pieces of completed dolls that are not your own. All work should be original and failure to comply will result in disqualification.
4. Props. Props and backgrounds are encouraged, but should not be massive. We will ask too large of entries to reduce their size, so be reasonable.
5. Transparency. We ask that all dolls have transparent background and is a GIF file. If you don’t know how to do this, see the following thread: How to Make Backgrounds Transparent
6. Forbidden. Sexually explicit, nudity(artistic nudity must be okayed first by Silver_Wolf_Kitty), or overly bloody dolls are forbidden. Entering one could result in disqualification.
7. Theme. Every doll should relate to the theme. While we encourage creativity, failure to keep with the theme can get you eliminated automatically that round.
8. Judges. No one is allowed to use friendship or promises to sway a judge’s decision. Threats, bribery, and attempts to interfere or discover the judge’s decisions in anyway will result in disqualification. Arguing with the judges can result in an automatic elimination.
9. Competing. You can only submit one entry for each cometition, so choose wisely. The rules are being changed to allow crossover, but we ask that handdrawn dollers stick to the dollmakers if they are inclined to compete in that arena.
10. Animation. Animation is forbidden in the competition. We understand that many users like glitter, blinking, etc, but it takes away from the creativity and creates an unequal playing field for those who can’t animate.

Procedures
The audition round procedures are no longer in place, these are the procedures that will be followed in the future.

1. Participants enter a doll every two weeks in the set thread. They may enter it sooner, however further edits are not allowed after the doll is entered. No matter what, the two weeks are a guaranteed time slot(unless all entries are received before it).
2. Any participants who fail to meet this deadline will be eliminated. Deadlines are not being extended for anyone, so do not ask. Special extensions may be asked in the event of a long trip or medical/family emergency, but you must contact Silver_Wolf_Kitty immediately if this occurs.
3. After two weeks, the judges will then provide critique on each entry and select a bottom two for the round.
4. Several days are given for voting on who should stay. Voting will be a public affair, but you shouldn’t worry about hurting feelings. All you have to do is post in the voting thread with the name of the participant who you think should stay in the competition. You may provide an explanation, but that is up to you.
5. Votes are counted and the bottom participant is eliminated, then the next round begins.

Theme
The theme for round three is "Jewel Fairies". This means that competitors need to select a jewel color(such as Ruby Red, Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue, etc) and use it for their entire doll. The fairy should be in entirely that color, with the exception being one piece of black or white clothing or accessory and metal palettes(which should be using sparingly). Competitors are not permitted to change their character's skin, hair, or eye colors in this round.

When your doll is ready, we ask participants to post their handdrawn doll in this thread. Round three will close the evening of September 15th! After that, the judges will submit their critiques and then public voting of the bottom two for the round will begin.

Questions
Q: Does the doll need to be a fairy?
A: Yes, the doll does need to be a fairy.

Q: Are mixed color jewels(Ex: Ametrine) and decorative gemstones(Ex: Lace Agate) allowed?
A: Yes, all jewels and gemstones are allowed, within reason. They shouldn't be more than 2 or 3 different colors, that defeats the purpose of the theme.
