Draw a Japanese Mythological Figure, God/Goddess, or Supernatural Creature!
Pick a god, goddess, legendary creature, or mythological creature from Japanese lore! Do your research, because you want to make sure you do it well! There are plenty of places, especially wikipedia to find good information.
Try to be original! And go all out-- do your absolute BEST. Those pieces will stick out the most in voting.
No bases, traces, and any resources used must be credited properly.
You may submit your entry at any time from opening to the deadline. But I will NOT take anything after the deadline.
Only illustrations will be accepted as this is a visual contest. (Meaning, drawn by you traditonally or digitally.) No literature or photmanips please.
No collaborations. It must be your work only.
Your submission must be NEW and made specifically for the contest. Nothing previously submitted to your gallery or made for something else is admissible. The character must be your original design, and not one from an existing work/anime manga/fandom, either.
One entry per person.
Japanese mythology only! Here is an article of Divinities and Figures: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese…
and a list of Legendary Creatures: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_… .
You are however not limited to these but must be based off actual lore.
Please make sure in the title or description that the name of the mythical figure, god or goddess, or or type of legendary creature is stated so we know what we're looking at.
Be respectful to other artists whom enter the contest.
Voting will be done by public poll for fairness! So please do not make journals, polls asking four your friends to vote for you. If I see this, you will be DISQUALIFIED.
Deadline is January 6th, 2014
Send me by note your submission with the subject title, "Contest Submission". Your submission must not be an existing work and must be new, made for the contest.
$50 for the winner!
