Default Miss TDP Dollmaker-Round Four - 09-23-2009, 11:03 PM

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

The public has decided and the member who was eliminated was iluvdolphin6! Congrats to her for working so hard! The following members are still competing in this competition and are the only ones allowed to post here:
  • Aussiemum777
  • Catlover642
  • Heva_Banana_Mad
  • jordanashley
  • prin367cess
  • XxXCookies_R_MineXxX
THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD NOR IS IT THE PLACE TO SUBMIT HANDDRAWN DOLLS! 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(or when all dolls are entered), 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 vote in the voting thread poll for the doll you think should go.
5. Votes are counted and the bottom participant is eliminated, then the next round begins.

Theme
The theme for round four is "Anime". This means that competitors need to select an anime or manga character and doll them. We are allowing anything to be chosen rather than limiting competitors, however, it is highly encouraged NOT to do extremely popular animes such as Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, etc. Think of it this way: if it is extremely popular and has tons of fangirls, you shouldn't do it. We want creativity, not regurgitated themes. Competitors are permitted to change their character's hair and eye colors this round, but not their skin unless they PM Silver_Wolf_Kitty to ask. Please include reference pictures and the manga and character's names so it can be looked up by the judges. If you are doing an original in-character outfit, explanation is also required as to how it is in-character.

When your doll is ready, we ask participants to post their dollmaker doll in this thread. Round four will close the evening of October 7th! After that, the judges will submit their critiques and then public voting of the bottom two for the round will begin.

Questions
Q. Are we supposed to copy from a picture and provide a link to the picture we have copied from or can we do our own version of our chosen character?
A. I'd suggest using a reference picture and doing the actual character, but it'd be alright to do your own version, as long as the outfit is in character and explained.
