It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? Yeah, I haven’t been around that much here on dA lately. I was off working on a one-shot manga that I used as my entry for a contest. After that, I’ve been gaming a lot and then got to printing and bookbinding my work for some friends and relatives. I haven’t done much art (which is sad) but ei, I’m here now.
So… in the past months while I was ninja-style gone, (I may be gone and not posting anything but I still check back on my dA profile and friends sometimes) I noticed I hit a milestone I set for myself years back. I hit 7XX watchers. And I haven’t done anything yet to celebrate it.
I’ve been thinking of a contest and give out prizes. I even did a poll on it (zarashi99.deviantart.com/journ…) and you guys wanted me to award winner/s with Core Membership if I ever hosted a contest. I just checked my points balance and heck, there’s so much just sitting there, I feel bad because I’m not using them. By the way, I would like to thank everyone who donated to me, you guys are too kind!
Going back to the topic, okay then! I’m your genie.
You want Core Membership? GRANTED! Let’s go!
Contest Prizes: Each winner will be awarded either 3-month Core Membership or 1,200 (in case, he/she doesn’t want Core). I will also feature their top 3 best artworks in a separate journal for the contest results.
Moreover, honorable mentions will be awarded 30 each and have 3 of their artworks featured.
Not enough prizes? Don’t worry. I might update this journal with more contest prizes so stay tuned.
THE CONTEST:*In this contest, you don't have to draw an artwork or write a story/poem. Just read a short one-shot comic and answer the questions below as best as you can. Whoever nails the right answer to a question at the earliest time will be one of the winners. Those who come close to the right answer/s (or those who nail it but answered at a later date) will be the honorable mentions.
Here are the questions you gotta answer: To Be Announced
So where this comic that we have to read? TBA
Where do I have to post my answer/s?TBA
THE DEADLINE of SUBMISSION of ANSWERS:TBA
But wait! There’s more!
Answers should be sent to me in public. Heck, yeah. Public. That means you give it to me as a comment. (Where? I will announce it later.) This is so that we can be transparent with the timestamp and everything. Also, this is so that you can get creative with your input. Copy-pasted answers or ones that are similar in a suspicious way (like, in a oh-I-just-wanna-join-this-contest-for-the-prize-without-reading-sh*t-lemme-rephrase-someone-elses-answer way)… well, I will ignore those answers.
Another thing. Answers, should NOT be edited after posting. Edit them and I will ignore them, even if they happen to be the correct answer.
Two more things!
>> Only one answer per question per entrant. Entrants with multiple answers to the same question posted in separate comments will be ignored.
>> Answers should be clear and (I’m strict about this next part) be posted in this format:
[A-#] <Your answer in sentence form.>
[A-1] He will be serving as her llama.
[A-2] She doesn't trust the shaman.
*Answers not posted in the said format will be ignored. “Hey! Why do we have to have some format, anyway?” Glad you asked. It’s so that:
- I know you read the rules, and
- you can say other stuff you wanna say apart from posting your answers. If you have a comment about this contest, you can do so and be able to separate it from your input.
Apart from the contest (which shall be started soon), I will be hosting a RUFF-RUFF-RAFFLE. You don’t need to enter the contest to qualify. This is a separate thingy. You don’t need to favourite this journal too nor watch me or stuff like that.
- Just tag 3 of your friends in a comment down below and I will give you 1 raffle number.
- Share this in a journal and place a comment down below with the link to your journal entry and I will give you 2 raffle numbers.
Three winners will be chosen by our best friend, Random Number Generator, and these prizes shall be given to each of them:
>> 5 Featured artworks in a separate journal
Are you game? Drawing of raffle winners will be done on the same day the winners of the contest are announced.
Wow, this is one heck of a read. Sorry this journal has gotten quite long. [pause]
Anyway, if you have reached this part, I thank you for reading. Have a nice day/evening!
See ya in the contest! I will update this journal with the story’s link and the questions soon!
