Please take a moment to :+fav: this news article.  Just press the 'Love It!' button on the left there.  The more this article circulates, the more suggestions we'll get, meaning a better quality pool of possible themes!  Though the best suggestion will win 650 dA points, I will bump it up to 1,000 dA points if this article gets 100 :+fav:'s in the first 24 hours that it's posted.

Also!  RAFFLE!

For every 50 :+fav:'s this article receives, I will draw a random name from the pool of those who :+fav: it (up to 300 :+fav:'s max).  Each drawn name will win 100 dA points, so just by pushing that button, you have your chance at winning something!

Okay, fine.  Fine.  And a free llama to everyone else.  There.  Everybody's a winner just by looking at this.  Now on to the REAL contest at hand!


We're five paragraphs in, and I finally get to announce...

The :iconcolor-me-club: presents:
A CONTEST SIMPLER THAN COOKING EASY MAC!


(AKA the "Pick A Theme For the November Lineart Contest" Mini-Contest.)


The color-me-club is just finishing up the end of its October Coloring Contest, and will soon be moving back to the lineart portion of the contest cycle.  But we need to know...lineart of what?

How to Participate:



Simply comment in this poll: --==:star: color-me-club.deviantart.com/j… :star:==--

In the comment, state the theme. If you want, feel free to include a short (short!) description of why you think it's a great theme, and why it would generate lots and lots of contest entries.

After collecting user-submitted theme suggestions, the best three (or four or five) themes will be chosen and posted in a poll on the color-me-club to narrow down which one the users would like the most. The winning theme will be used for the November lineart contest.

In the highly likely event a winning theme is suggested by multiple people, the first person who suggested it will get chosen.

The prize for the best theme is 650 dA points (1,000 if this article gets 100 's in the first 24 hours of posting).


So What Is a Good Theme?:



A good theme suggestion is one that a lot of people can utilize. In the past, we have used themes like love, wild, hair, fuzzy, heroic, medieval, masculine, and music. These are all themes that can be interpreted a number of ways, and can be done by artists of all sorts of disciplines and styles.

Bad suggestions would be restrictive, very specific ideas. 'Surrealsim' is a bad theme idea, as many artists would feel prohibited as they do not draw surrealist style. Fanart of your favorite TV show is a bad theme idea as most artists would not feel the motivation to draw fanart based on something they're not a fan of.

Remember to suggest themes you think many people would like to do; not just yourself.

Anyway, enough prattling about, let's get some suggestions down for the November lineart contest! What do you want to see made?

i think we should all do a scene with indians on horses or playing with horses. or we could have pilgrims riding horses or interacting with the indians. it sounds good to me.

November should be a time where we think about others...we need to bring attention to people in need.. lately we have seen so many disasters all over the world.. this would be a great way to think about the well-being of people around us rather than ourselves :)

Just a thought

Have a great day

Also, if you would like to :+fav: this article, but do not wish to receive a llama, please say so in the comments here.

That way I can make a note to cackle malevolently when I give you a llama anyway.

For the last couple months, I allowed comments in both this news article and the poll. However, I would rather the comments remain in the poll so it's in a more unified spot, and so we can get a more accurate time-stamp of which is the first of multiple suggestions.

Suggestions posted in the comments of this news article are not valid. You must comment here: [link]

Thanks guys!

Ding!

150 :+fav:'s achieved! Four winners in the raffle. And why the hell not, I'm going to bump it up to 150 points, just because.

Now if I could also give 150 llamas...

200 :+fav:'s achieved (or close enough, 197, whatev's). Five raffle winners will be chosen!

And the llamas will also be lemon scented, so those of you with augmented environment gaming rigs will be in for a zesty treat when you pop open that message center! Yep, all six of you who paid two thousand bucks for one of those gimmicky things in 2007...

Llamas can also be exchanged for ice cream badges...when deviantArt introduces them in v27.

Changing/Shifting
or natural colors

Basically, since the scenery and setting of everything around us changes and shifts colors in fall, I thought it would fit. November is when autmn really kicks in.
everything is also very colorful.
it could be something blossoming or maybe something split.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Please post it here instead: [link]

That way, I can keep everything in a more orderly spot, and know who was the first to suggest something in the event a winning theme was suggested by many others. Thanks.
