Hey ladies and gents; I am pleased to announce that ATS' very first Drawing Contest is a go!

The Drawing Contest works in the same fashion as our Writing Contests.

The theme for the contest is one which generated the most interest - dragon. So, for this contest, you will be required to create a dragon artwork. This should prove a great occasion for many members to display their talent in visual art.

The medium you use to create the artwork is up to you. In other words you can make a pen drawing, or an ink drawing, a watercolour artwork, a painting, or even a virtual drawing - anything you're comfortable with.


Rules Of Entry

The contest starts now, on this 11th of August 2016, and will end on the 16th of September 2016 at 12:01AM EDT. Any submissions after that date will be disqualified. Voting will take place until the 23rd of September 2016 at 12:01AM EDT.
All T&C's apply.

All entries must include [DC12016] (it means 2016's Drawing Contest #1) in the title.
Please use the Members Art to post your artwork thread.

All entries must be linked in this thread. In other words you gotta post a link, in this thread, to your entry. Otherwise we won't know you've made a thread.
You may enter more than once, using one thread per entry. But you can only win one prize.

There will be 4 winners, based on star and flags.
The flags you'll receive will be worth 2 points each, whereas stars in your OP will be worth 1 point each. Subsequent posts are not counted.


Prizes
1st prize - 5 applause, and selection of the next contest theme
2nd - 4 applause
3rd - 3 applause
4th - 2 applause

All Terms and Condition apply to all artwork.


As a suggestion, in your OP, after you've posted your work, please write a bit about what tool you used (was your masterpiece done with a simple pen? Is it colour crayons? Maybe you've used a revolutionary combination of paint & metallic pellets? ) - it's not required but it sure would be fun to know.

If ever you're not too sure how to post pictures on ATS, here's a thread swanne made to help you out.

Good luck to all!!!!!!!

With thanks to swanne for suggesting this contest...and providing most of the content for this OP!!!!

Sounds fun.

Let me know when the theme is Sacred Geometry or Twin Peaks fan art.

Then I'll have a go at it
.

As for now, I don't have much interest in drawing dragons. But I look forward to seeing other member's art.

Two birds one stone. I just hope my daughters wall painting come through.


By the by, do hippocampuses qualify? A water dragon if you will. My daughter wants one something fierce.

I might participate, seeing as I currently have a third of a dragon already drawn haha. Only problem is that it's a work in progress; if I feel like working on it, then I do.

This is fantastic DTOM, there are some very talented artists among the membership here and the theme of Dragon is perfect. I'd love to see some Japanese styled Dragon tattoo art.

Looking forward to all the contributions.

NB: I never graduated past crayons, even then I still have to use tracing paper and lie to everyone that I did draw it freehand, it's unbearably embarrassing for me and anyone unfortunate enough to gaze upon it's pathetic-ness.

Did somebody say "big lizards??" I think they DID! I'm in.......... unless I think my watercolor really sucks, in which case you'll never hear from me again.

Yes, can I please get an answer to this. Also, does the canvas have to be in 2D format? How much leeway do we actually have?
