Alright, It's time to announce the rules and regulations for our Halloween contest!

:star:THEME:star:
Obviously, the theme is Halloween.

But, there will be certain things that we will be looking for:
1. Great Color Palette- We want it bright and colorful!
2. If you go horror, go all the way- guts, brains, we will love to see it :D
3. We would love to see your dark side- want to be a bit twisted? Go for it, within reason of course (I mean, I don't want to see decapitated babies, omg, I'd cry)
4. We want to see something original. Yeah, cannon characters and stories are great, but we want to see YOU!
5. We want to see that you had fun with it!

Now, I know that there are those of you out there that are better with a pen than a brush (or whatever it is you do art with XD), so, we have a little something for you as well :D
Write your scariest short story, something that will have someone rolling in bed at night
Minimum word count is 666 words (see what I did there XD) and maximum is 1100 (again, get it? CX)

The plot is up to you, just be sure to have us shaking in our seats :D

:star:Rules:star:
Alright, quite simple
1: Must be a NEW piece of work. Meaning that it has to of been uploaded to DeviantART after October 2nd, 2013. Anything before that will not be eligible for submission to this contest.
2. Nothing too mature. What I mean by this is nothing with smut or lemon scenes. Some skin is fine, but nudity is not.
3. For Cosplay, NOTHING OVER PG13!
4. Have a scene, not just a character just standing in a witch costume. We want to be wowed!
5. Bases will not be allowed to be used. We want to see something completely original. If we discover that you did use a base, your piece will be disqualified and you may be suspended from the club for a short time.
6. All submissions must be submitted by MIDNIGHT on Halloween!
7. Have fun!

What Will Be Accepted:
Traditional Drawings, Digital Drawings, Literature, Cosplay

Now, to get you guys revved for this, here are our prizes!

I have one question... should the entry be exclusively for this contest or can it be used also as an entry to similarly themed, simultaneously on going contests?
Reply
:iconserene-simplicit:
Serene-SimpliciT Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2013  Student General Artist
Well, we'd rather it be just for this contest, though if you submit a piece that does fit the theme quite well for someone else, we'll look at it and decide whether or not to submit it ^^

"1. Great Color Palette- We want it bright and colorful!"

Bright and colorful for something that's supposed to be dark and creepy? Seems a little odd.

:iconserene-simplicit:
Serene-SimpliciT Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2013  Student General Artist
Well, we don't want it to just be black and white, like a lineart for instance
we want the piece to be as colorful as the topic of the piece
For instance, say that you're drawing a horror scene. It doesn't necessarily have to be bright orange and all, but maybe have the blood bright red and the guts all bright, whereas the background could be an eerie graveyard at night, so you could use darker colors
Does that make sense?
