:new:  Extending the contest until June 1st from many requests! Hope to see all your enteries soon :3 <3

:damphyr:It's contest time!  This contest is simple, and has many backers for awesome prizes! Just listen to the song that I've linked below, and create an art piece featuring one of your OC's.  Digitally or traditionally! Write a one shot! 3-d model it. Use anything you want to interpreate your own meaning.  

Song name: Love the House You're In
Artist: Moonface
Youtube Link:…

I picked a song that I think was open to interpretation.

The point of the contest is to try to think about an illustration that would fit well with the song. Interprete the music with your character however you see fits. Feel free to get creative, or keep it simple if that's your style and go with the power of your muse.

If you cannot listen, feel free to base an illustration off of the lyrics, as that works too.

Question about OC acceptance.  I know the policy is no characters for already existing media, but what if a character is created and placed in a multiverse, alternate universe, crossover, etc?  Something other than the original, canon material?  Or is that still considered pre-existing despite changes and alterations made?
dragdramane Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2015  Student General Artist
Yes, OC's in AU's are allowed :D
UltiAlex Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  New member Hobbyist
whats an AU?
dragdramane Featured By Owner May 12, 2015  Student General Artist
"Alternate Universe", an existing character put in a different universe that's not their original canon

Curious question, I see rules that adoptables and such aren't allowed, but what about species reference sheets?
dragdramane Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015  Student General Artist
Species ref sheets would go in the "Misc." folder
Ventus-Fall Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for answering :)
Though I can't see or submit to a Misc. folder ^^;
