Yatta!
Finally we are getting powerful with 200+ members XD So, this is a celebration contest as well as a long awaited one :nya:

Here are the details (read them and then join lol)

TITLE: Two bodies - One love
The title refers to the fact that no matter how much people would mess with our favourite characters we still love them. If you think it's lame, oh well, the others didn't have any idea so... this one stays.

DESCRIPTION:
Okay here we go:
1.First off I would prefer the entries to be vectors, but if you decide to go with wallpaper - please do not use ANY BRUSHES OR TEXTURES, also NO BLUR/SMUDGE. Patterns are okay as well as gradients (I'm gonna regret this later -_-). We want this to be as close to the theme of the group (~Vectory~ is called that for a reason XD)
2.Secondly since this is a contest of your creativity - the vector must be made out of AT LEAST TWO SCANS and you'll just see why:
3.The contest has two categories: you can either choose one or both but you are limited to three submission (although you don't have to submit so many works)
I. Category: Cross-dress
LoL, the title should give you a pretty nice idea on what you're supposed to do: the idea is to put a person into clothing of the opposite gender (but still keeping their original figure - meaning a cross-dressing guy DOES NOT HAVE BOOBS while a cross-dressing girl DOES)
You do not have to limit yourself to one anime series - cross-overs are more than welcome.

II. Category: Chimaera
Basically it's the same as cross-dress but the characters are of the same gender... but if you are willing to make the merging between a character and a mecha or dragon or whatever else it will also go to this category - the only thing is NO CROSS-DRESSING. Other than that the same rules apply to this as to the cross-dress category.
4. The deadline is *drumroll* June 8th - this should give you enough time to think this through, decide on the scans and make your entries as good as possible. If there would be some problems just near the deadline and many people will want to move it we'll discuss it. Hopefully I give you enough time to end the contest exactly as planned.

Once again I will emphasize on the most important things: No raster techniques allowed: no textures, no brushes, no blur, no smudge. The only rasters allowed are: gradient and patterns. The vector must incorporate AT THE VERY LEAST two scans.

EXAMPLE/PROMO:
I admit the promo is for the cross-dress category, 'cause I'm in a mood that makes me want to make things just for the lolz right now so here you go:
>>Promo<<

Edit by MapleRose: Because it may seem confusing, I've found a few examples of chimaera-ing:
>>Example male<<
>>Example female<<

Edit: (thanks for noticing MapleRose)
We'll be choosing three winners:
1. Best cross-dresser
2. Best chimaera
3. People's award

The first two are chosen by a jury of admins not participating in the contest and one member that cannot participate but wants to help judging (if you're interested send your application to me XD). The People's award is given via your votes.

I have a question too.
Is it a must to have two images? What if I find what I need in just one image without having to combine them?

Sorry, Sakura - it's a must. Otherwise the image wouldn't be a chimaera. (unless you combine two characters from a group scan - I think I'd agree to that, but let's hear from the other mods XD)

You can use official fanarts or fanarts from people that gave you permission to use their image ^^

Hmmm...
It's a cute image of crossdressing...
All I have to do is enlarge it and vector it.
Sounds kinda unfair/easy to me, but I was wondering.

Let's just say - combine at least 2 characters and make it one. So, it can either be from one Couple/Group scan, or simply from at least two different scans.

wow due on my birthday..So many contests, I will give this one a chance if I can.
I think I will due the crossdressing one, b/c I don't understand the Chimaera one.

The Chimaera one is basically sticking one character's body part onto another character's body part (though those two characters are the same gender). Or you can stick say Ichigo's head onto a Hallow's, just as an example.

btw, I edited kashi's first post with some examples of chimaera-ing.

btw, you don't have to just use 2 scans; you can use more than 2 (in fact, it's encouraged :D), you can use an arm from one scan, a leg from another, the head from another, and the body of another XD

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I CANNOT wait to work on this one!

Can there be multiple characters in one piece? For instance, Lulu in CC's outfit posing with Suzu in Euphie's dress?

Ripping walls? You're headed to Banned-ville.

Yay! great to see such enthusiasm :)

Um, for the sake of ease of judging etc, I'd say I'd rather you submitted them as 2 separate vectors (remember you can submit a max of 3 entries) :)

Awwww, this sounds so fun! Hopefully I'll be able to enter. I'll try!

Judging by my ridiculously slow speed at vectoring... I won't be doing this.
But question: Since fanart is okay, then can it be our own fanart? :p

Sure, but you need to combine them as well and show us the fanart(s) you've used in your entry. The rules are basically similar for the scan one. You can, for example, draw at least two characters (perhaps with the same pose, it doesn't have to be a complete full-body drawing anyway) and then combine both of them in a single piece.

In that case, I think I'll just find scans. o_o lulz.

It's way easier than using two scans!

mmmm.. it's kinda hard to understand about my bad english.. but.. let me tell you what i understan...
You are saying that to enter in the contest we must make a vector of a person who dress the oposite sex dress? for example, Sakura-chan wearing Syaoran-kun'd outfit?
i'm right?

The pieces of hope will became wings...

Looks interesting! And FUN! I will try!
