Contest Rules
*update* the deadline is Sunday night 11:59:59 PM (PST) on 1/8/12 and NOT 1/7/12. sorry for the typo! -darkreaver


Worst Christmas Gift

We all love getting a present we've always wanted, but most of the time that doesn't happen...either accidentally, or intentionally. Your task: depict a scene where someone gets the worst gift, and their reaction to that gift. What's the result? hilarious? ironic? TERRIFYING?

•You will be working alone for this contest; no teams.

•You may submit more than one entry, but submissions will be judged separately and you may only have one in the top three.

•Entries must be suitable for a PG-13 audience meaning no porn or extreme violence.

•Previously posted or old artwork will not be allowed.

•Entries may be in any artistic media: pencil, ink, computer graphics, paint, etc.

•The file size must not exceed 400kb size limit.

•Moderators reserve the right to disqualify any entry if it does not meet the theme requirements and/or if it violates any of the rules.


Post links to your submission in this thread:

All comments in the submission thread will be deleted so please no comments in that thread.


Entries for the contest must be posted by 11:59:59 PM (PST) Sunday night, January 7th, 2012.


Entries will be judged on skill and creativity, as well as relevance to the theme.


Winners will receive an awards badge under their avatar.

To use the term "throw your hat over the wall", there goes my birthday present cap I have to wear to avoid sunstroke most of the year.

Extension please! Mine is like halfway done, but have been busy being social for a change. It's 9pm here and no entries, so...

darkreaver 01-06-2012 10:48 PM

well, you've still got 24 hours, so unless you're going to be social tomorrow also...just wondering, who's still planning on submitting?..

also, I actually did intend the deadline to be Sunday the 8th, and not the 7th...that was a typo. so i guess you get 48 hours.

Lamb 01-07-2012 05:24 AM

I'm not. I was planning to, but not really in the mood right now.

Christmas was so last year... -____-

Meatloaf 01-07-2012 11:58 AM

I'm planning to be social tomorrow too, lol. If the deadline is Sunday night, then I can totally submit (unless I forget).

Lamb 01-07-2012 12:20 PM

The problem may have been that (regardles of what you said DR) the emphasis with this theme is heavily put onto the idea itself. That means that it's discouraging right from the beginning.

darkreaver 01-07-2012 04:24 PM

r.lamb: hm, not exactly sure what you mean...how could it have been worded to be more encouraging then? in any case, if anyone had mentioned this earlier, perhaps this problem could have been rectified.

I've been working so hard core on my paintings that I've lost resolve to work on the contest. But I'll try to get something going tomorrow. Because I do have an idea for a pic. I just need to motivate myself.

gold_tangerine 01-07-2012 07:56 PM

I'm in the game, Darkreaver. I'll post my **** up tomorrow.

I was 95% done with a pic that was mostly cartoony when I went to close a reference picture and accidentally closed the christmas pic without saving it and lost all the work and frankly don't want to do it all over again so I guess I'm out of this running. I probably wasn't going to win anyways. Mother !&*%
