♪ Rules

We expect you will abide by these following rules if you decide to enter a hand-drawn contest. Failure to do so may result in an automatic disqualification and the entry[s] found violating along with any others you have entered will not be eligible for voting and you will not have any chance to place until the next contest.

1: No frankendolling! That means taking part[s] of a doll or more, and putting them on your own "doll", much like the movie and book Frankenstein. Please don't do this even with your own work.

2: No recoloring anything that was not made by you and entering it. This basically categorizes as "theft art." even if you have the original creator's okay, just don't do it.

3: No doll-makers are allowed to be used in your entry. Not in part or whole, this means you cannot "make" a doll in a doll-maker and place it up here for voting. It is not considered a "hand-drawn" by you and should not be found anywhere in the "Hand-drawn Dolls" area, much less this contest thread.

4: Unless you get an okay by a current contest running, we ask you make a new doll for each theme. Contests are to give ideas to dollers and allow them to compete with others to see who's idea was stronger and who brought it across in the best way. So please don't use old dolls, even if they have a similar theme used as the one currently running in the contest.

5: Please do NOT steal any bit of work, whether from a doll here or somewhere else. This goes along with no frankendolling. That means, if a contest holds a certain theme and you see a doll somewhere else that looks similar to what you would expect from the theme, please don't take that idea even if you tweak it a little. If you are inspired by it, that's agreeable. But please note that you were and don't base your entry heavily off of it. Remember, we want to be original.

6: Please include base credit and any other credit necessary for each entry.

7: You are allowed to enter a maximum of two dolls per contest, unless otherwise stated by the current contest holder.

8: Please make sure your entry has the current theme! If the theme is based off of flowers, please do not submit an underwater entry!

9: Please follow other rules the current contest holder may provide.

10: Be original and have fun!

11: If you host a contest and someone wins it, you can enter their contest although you may not place first in it.

12: No animation is allowed in the contsts, unless the contest is specifically entitled "Animated Dolls" or the contest host requests it. Any Any animated entries will be automatically disqualified.

We expect you to abide by these rules. If you cannot do so, please don't enter in the first place. We want this to be a fun thing and don't need any contestants to disobey the rules. It matters not who you are, whether you are the friend or sibling of an important person around here, we all have to follow these simple rules.

In the contests, the contest holder will set the theme and deadline. Those who wish to enter must create a "doll" with such theme before the deadline and post it in this thread. The contest holder will make awards and judge each doll based on effort, how well it portrays the theme, and quality. This means no judge will choose place just because it is their friend. They must decide these with each entry. If it looks sloppy and rushed compared to another entry, then it may loose points. Although, that sloppy entry may show what the contest holder had in mind for the contest better than the others. And the one with the most effort may not always have the best quality. Keeping these in mind, the judge must place what he or she thinks deserves. It has nothing to do with relations, and you cannot ask where to be placed or suggest. That decision is entirely up to the contest judge. Whoever places first gets to run the next contest, and the others get an award with their name and place on it.

Awards we recommend:
Closest to Theme
Best [hair, shading, etc...]
Most original
Thanks for entering!

You must use first and second, and most likely third. You can pick and choose which other places you want, or not use any of them. But it is an extremely good idea to have a thanks for entering award. Please remember that a user can earn more than one award, although cannot double in the mains. For example, Jane Doe cannot place first and second or first and third. As John Doe cannot place second and third, and so on.

♪ We look forward to seeing what you guys come up with! ♪

The First Contest on this Thread is...


By "opposites attract" I mean you doll two dolls back to back that have either completely opposite colours, opposite personalities, etc. I do not necessarily mean a couple - however, that would be nice too.

Good ideas for opposites would be Black/White (Ying and Yang), Night/Day, Happy/Sad, Prep/Goth, Anger/Love, Sunset/Sunrise, Peace/War, etc.

The contest end date is going to be anywhere between the 20th - 31st of this month depending on how many people enter. I'm hoping for at least five entries before I close it.

Anything I missed? ^_^

Hayley, do you have any doll bases sites that link to the base that has a back to back doll............?

TheHayleyDoll 12-02-2008 10:08 PM

You can simply use the same base and flip it. Or use two different poses within a base set. I don't physically mean back to back, I just mean two that are beside each other. xD

antimaie 12-02-2008 10:09 PM

Ooh! this sounds fun ^^

btw: Congrats on winning Hayley : D

TheHayleyDoll 12-02-2008 10:10 PM

Thank you, antimaie.

And everyone (that can enter) must enter! I want lots of entries!

antimaie 12-02-2008 10:18 PM

Does it have to be two seperate dolls, or can it be like,
two different sides of one doll? [as in like cutting the doll in half and one side dressed in black, the other white]

TheHayleyDoll 12-02-2008 10:20 PM

That's okay too. ^_^ And thanks again for everyone who congratulated me. That's very nice of you considering my doll was hacked to pieces after I won because somebody didn't agree and decided that my doll was one of the worst in the bunch. ANYWAY. I really need to let go of grudges.

Moving on...

I was actually going to add that, antimaie, I just forgot. xD Yes, you can split one doll in half.

antimaie 12-02-2008 10:28 PM

okay awesome!
haha i just started a doll like that so a w00t w00t!
your welcome, i really liked it, and it had nothing to do with the fact i like pokemon. pshh xD

WHiTELOvEx 12-02-2008 11:13 PM

I work for an Half-an-hour and i get THIS.....???!!!

*Groan* I'm thinking about doing another one (Using pockey sticks YAY!!) This one turned out H-ORRIBLE. There clothes.... Don't ask O.o Uh... i guess comments are accepted.

I didn't enter any of the previous concerts but I'm thinking about entering this one. How do you rotate a base, though? I know that a long time ago (or it might have been recently, I just remember seeing it) you did one Hayley that was two dolls back to back and I loved the bases. Anyways....if I do enter and someone does the same opposites as me (I'm thinking about anger and love or sunset and sunrise, although the second would be hard without photoshop...) am I still qualified to place? Thanks.
