If you know me, I mean really know me, then you will know Safetysuit is one of my favourite bands in the whole wide world... many a time have they inspired my artwork; many a time have their lyric emotions featured in my pieces... Keep reading... all the way to the bottom for details about the contest...

I'm running a mini contest of sorts, something to chase away our Winter blues (or at least here in the UK, our Flooding blues!)

:bulletyellow: This is a digital art contest (manipulators, painters, airbrushers, etc etc.)

:bulletyellow: It will have ONE winner and TWO runner's up. - Winner will receive their winning image as a full sized print (approx. A3 sized dependant on original image size etc.) to display as they see fit & a 3-month premi from me. - Runner's Up will receive an A4 sized print to display as they wish & a 1-month premi from me.

:bulletyellow: It's a theme style contest with the only must's being based on the below lyrics:

"And with this love song for you,
It's not a momentary phase...
You are my life I don't deserve you,
But you love me just the same.
And as the mirror says we're older,
I will not look the other way.
You're my life, my love, my only,
And that's one thing that won't change"


Snippet from "Never Stop" by Safetysuit << (click to listen to the song!)

:bulletyellow: And the following two characters: (Both characters MUST be present in the image for it to qualify)


Orealis


Orealis


Filine


Filine


:bulletyellow: Please make your original pieces large (at least 3500 pixels across) and at 300dpi for print quality, you can make them smaller when you submit it to deviantART this is just to make it easier when it comes to print if you win! :)

:bulletyellow: You can only enter once, so please take care to put the effort in to make it all worth while :)

:bulletyellow: DEADLINE is Monday 18th February 2013 at approx. 19:00 GMT (you have 6 weeks from this journal! ;))

:bulletyellow: When entries are complete please send them to me in a note with the subject "Contest Entry" with a thumb to your artwork. Please please please remember to save a separate piece as your original or it won't be of print quality and will look bad in the final print run.

:bulletyellow: Lastly, if you have any questions please note me. & Goodluck! ^^

I'm sorry, I won't be able to finish my piece :saddummy: I really wanted to, but I haven't had the chance to sit there and work on it. It's been started, but not even close to the endline. I'll eventually finish it and post it, I promise, and I'll let you know about it. Thanks for holding this contest! :hug:

What is the relationship between these two characters? Is it as the song suggests? Lovers?

I'm in! The combination of those two charackters is very intresting I think.
And it's great that you ask us to work around those specific lyrics, I'm very curious for the entries, how it's interpret by everybody.

sooo you mean that both charcters have to be in one image?
and not two separate images for each char?

:icondevils-horizon:
devils-horizon Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yep, as stated above it must include both characters in one image.

Sounds like a cool concept. May I ask a silly question though, would it be possible to do a humanized version of the 2 characters? It's ok if the answer is no, I just wanted to be sure though.

It's not a silly question at all, thank you for asking it :) I'm afraid, though, that this time it is only Equine ~ maybe sometime in the future I can open up a contest for all kinds :)
