♪ 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:
First
Second
Third
Closest to Theme
Best [hair, shading, etc...]
Cutest
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! ♪


Since the last contest pretty much fizzled out, I'm going to make a last ditch attempt to revitalise the Handdrawn Contest. I think the main problem is that people who win are trying to see who can post the most complex theme ever; in my experience, people tend to doll better on more simple themes. So this is what I'm going to do with this contest; I hope everyone, from the most experienced to the newest dollers, will enter.

The theme is... Best doll on a set base!

All entrants have to do is make a doll from this base here: blood-cocoa's Gallery It can be any of the forward facing poses, and any of the faces; just remember, the doll MUST be made on the base.

You can also let your imagination run wild; any theme is allowed, however, your doll must have at least three of the following:

1. Stripy long socks
2. Unusually coloured hair (ie, a colour not found in nature)
3. Scarf
4. Pet
5. Off the shoulder or strapless top
6. Arm warmers (if you don't know what they are, click here
7. Hair in bunches or plaits
8. High heels
9. Patterns
10. Gloves

You can choose more than three if you like; dolls will be judged on how well you've made use of the base. ^^ No animation or glitter, please; any animated or glittered entries will be disqualified. Please crop and transparentise all entries; if you are unsure about how to do this, PM me.

End date is 3rd July; extensions are possible, if there's a good reason like being on holiday for example.
