Hello everyone! Yes, its that time of the year! Another contest XD Arent you all excited? I can just see you jumping up and down for joy. haha. Anyways. So we've decided to have a slightly different kind of contest this time with lots of rules (we all know you love rules!)

thanks so much to sailorchiron for her help in the contest creating and theme making!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/starrliteangel/contest2copy.jpg

{edit} - dang. MT doenst show the bootiful project banner i made. well copy and paste the link and you can see it XD

if you all could plug the contest for us or invite others we would really appreciate it! I'll put the userpage version and guestbook version (if you want to invite someone. but you cant use this as your sig img because its too big i think) of the code up.

The contest is a project and a contest combined. Thus called a "purokon" (shortened the japanese way)! In japanese project is pronounced "purojekuto" and contest is "contesuto" so purojekuto + contestuto is purokon! got it? okay, moving on here.

Youre allowed to either participate in just the project, OR the project and the contest. You cannot be in only the contest because your wallpaper must fit the project guidelines. easy enough so far right? Heres where it gets a bit complicated.

The Rules (dadadaduuum)
1. Your wallpaper must be at least 1024x768. We dont care whether its widescreen or normal.
2. Only 1 entry per participant and it MUST be a wallpaper. No doujinshis. Vectored, painted..whatever, we dont care.
3. Must be within the MT policy (obviously.) means no hentai, porn, etc. Artistic nudity is allowed but just crazy panties showing and stuff will not be allowed.
4. No collabs!
5. Your wallpaper may NOT show your entire character. (This only applies if you use a character whether its an animal or human...if you do scenery dont worry about it). Only 1 eye allowed to be showing! Its better if we cant recognize the character on first glance.
edit on this rule...its okay if you show their entire body as long as theyre in shadow or something and you dont have distinctive facial features and whatnot just to make it slightly easier
Examples of a wallpaper that would NOT be accepted -
Nocturne by starrliteangel

okay, i understand this rule gets a little tricky so make sure you send me a draft of your wallpaper of how its going to look before you start working on it if youre not sure whether its acceptable or not.
6. Must follow project themes
PROJECT THEMES = YOUR COLORS ARE LIMITED. CHOOSE YOUR COLOR WHEEL WEAPON. YOU MAY ONLY CHOOSE ONE. I REPEAT. ONLY ONE. dont be greedy now XD
- primary: red, yellow and blue only
- secondary: green, orange and purple only
- fall: orange, gold and brown only
- ocean: green, aqua and blue only
- night: black, blue and purple only
- sam/pinkprincesslacus: dark pink, light pink, hot pink...just PINK!
your wallpaper must ONLY have those colors. I dont care what kind of blue or aqua or orange you use but it must be identifiable as that color! you may have multiple types or blues, or aquas, or oranges. There isnt a limit on how many hues of one color you have, you just have a limit on what basic color you can use. Skin is allowed to stay skin-color. Now...as for you vectorers and painters and re-cg-ers...*points* you guys know better than to leave skin color in there because you all know what you're doing. I'll give you an exception if you want to, but challenge yourselves.

HAR HAR HAR and for the most EVIL part of this purokon! - YOU CANNOT WALL ANYTHING THAT IS DIRECTLY RELATABLE TO YOUR COLOR WEAPON! you want examples?
primary color cannot do - a painter's wheel! haha
secondary color cannot do - a purple dinasour?
fall color cannot do - FALL!
ocean color cannot do - oceans. water. sadness. purity. calmness.
night color cannot do - nighttime scenes, evil scenes
sam/PPL color cannot do - lacus. love. valentines. cuteness.

people who extract their scans for their wallpaper- like i said earlier, you can leave skin color in, but make sure you change the clothing color if you need to! if you dont know how search the internet or contact me. (trust me, there are TONS of tutorials on color changing in photoshop!)

wallpaper can be realistic or abstract. Winners will be chosen by 50% popular vote and 50% judges' choice

ok, i think thats all. have fun! deadline is sometime around September 20th. (College will have started by then for me, so the deadline for now is Sept. 20th but it is liable to change)

PLEASE dont hesitate to contact me if you have a question because this is a tricky contest since there are so many rules! I'll try to reply to you asap.

Mods/Admins. please let me know whether youre joining the contest or voting.

-----------------------

ALSO! we have some new admins/mods!

hmmm.. ok.. so suppose we have three colors.. do they have to wall those three colors only flat as is? =.=

uhh.. ok.. for example, waller wants to choose fall colors - orange gold and brown. are they allowed still to use shades lighter or a little darker than orange as long as it's orange? O.o same goes to all other colors of d color wheel.

yes, you can use different shades of gold and same for the other colors of the color wheel. I just wouldnt stray too far out on the gold thing though, because gold itself is hard to identify.

what about black and white? are we allowed to use those in addition to the colour schemes?

i'd like to say no, just because it would make it more challenging (because people like to make all their outlines black and all their clouds white) but I guess I'll take it if people do want to use black/white. keep it to a minimum though and use it artistically rather than just for outlines or clouds.

one more question, do we have to use all of our colours in the scheme? like say, I choose Primary, would I have to use all of red, yellow and blue, or can I just use red and yellow?
