MTM: Falling Into Fall

Mai-chan asked and YOU voted! She is proud to being you our next site-wide contest-- Falling Into Fall!

Your Mission

Create a Wallpaper or Indy Art using one of the following color palettes:

Palette #1:
http://oi44.tinypic.com/2hwij4m.jpg
#eecd86, #e08942, #b95835, #7a3e48, #3c3242, #74884a

Palette #2:
http://oi41.tinypic.com/2agkm80.jpg
#701a38, #db7c1f, #f0aa0c, #612e0b, #638513, #943e22


How this works

Indy Art and Wallpapers are separate categories, just like the gallery.

Each category will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Since we're breaking it up that way, there won't be separate categories for each palette, there will be winners within all the wallpapers we receive, and the same applies to Indy Art :)

From both categories, Mai-chan will select ONE commended entry.

If there are less than 5 entries for each category (5 wallpapers, 5 Indy Art), Indy Art and wallpapers will be merged together so there will only be ONE 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and commendation.

RULES: WHO CAN ENTER?

Absolutely EVERYONE can enter. All members of Minitokyo are allowed to enter -- moderators and elite members are not excluded from this project.

RULES: WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO ENTER

Simply upload your entry into the Minitokyo Gallery.

Write in your gallery description MTM FALLING INTO FALL 2013. (If you include a link to the competition thread Mai-chan will be super happy!)

Also PM Mai-Chan (Subject: FALL) with your gallery entry url.

So easy!

RULES: WHAT YOU CAN AND CAN'T DO

- You can use ANY media. That is, you can draw with pencil, pen, charcoal, crayon - anything! Watercolors, paint- absolutely anything can be used for this competition. (Traditional artists, we know it might be difficult to get the exact colors, but try to get as close as possible!)

For the digital artists, you have the HEX codes! Any media-- vector, paint - you get the idea.

-That means you can use anything for a subject. Use scans, draw your own characters, use existing characters: we don't mind. Let your creative juices flow: there are virtually no limits. The only limits we have are the color palettes you may use and the Minitokyo Policy :)

- You can submit ANY number of entries!
Unfortunately though, if you have too many entries and there are too few people to give the prizes around we might have to skip you >w< So everyone, enter!

- All entries must be YOUR work and they must comply with the quality requirements specified in the Policy, of course ;)

- Double the fun? Collaborations are also allowed!

DEADLINE: 31 OCTOBER 2013 MIDNIGHT GMT

Trust me, Mai-chan doesn't really know when that is either LOL. But yeah, try to get them in around midnight, 31 October ;)

MAI-CHAN WILL LOVE YOU FOR THIS

The 1st place winner(s) will be featured on the MT Facebook fanpage, as well as our Tumblr site.

All 1st, 2nd, 3rd and commendation places will receive a gallery comment and fav from Mai-chan!

Winners will also earn a special Achievement and get a banner to place on their userpages.

All participants will receive an Achievement for their participation.

So what are you waiting for?!

HOW YOU WILL WIN?
Don't worry, when we have received all the entries, we will put them together so you can vote on your absolute favorite. That's right! The winners will largely be determined by you, as members. The MT Staff will also vote for Mai-chan to balance things out. Keep posted for details on how to vote ;)

(PS: one rule of voting is that it will be public, and that you cannot vote for yourself. Pretty simple, ne?)

If you intend to participate, please leave a reply telling us if you are going to do a wallpaper or Indy art.

And please ask questions if you're not sure of anything :D

I'd love to participate with a wall, especially since the palettes are right up my alley <3

One question: does the wall/indy art have to be fall-themed (like having falling leaves, nature in fall, pumpkins and so on) or is using one of the color palettes enough?

Want to help out with tagging? (Of course you do!) See these: Tag admin thread | Guidelines | Tag-licious

How does one use color palettes? .___.'
Do we strictly have to use a maximum of only those 5-6 colors or are their shades allowed? What about black outlines? Or is it so that other colors are allowed but they must be a very minor part of the work..? I really don't know, sorry. Please explain -.-'

I'd like to try but can't decide right now if I would be able to make anything... I hope it won't be a problem if I leave a participation message some later ^-^'

A few questions though

1. Using black, white, optionally gray is allowed though, yo?
2. If I collab and make the vector and my bro/sis does the BG, can I enter the vector as indy art as well, or just the wall?
3. As a ecchi artist I use huge ammounts of light & shadows,vector cell shading, gradients. Can I or should I keep the simplicity? (I will select the source according that)

The constant bashing of my ecchi art and my haters formed me to what I am now - a full fledged hentai artist.

@Compi:

Shades are allowed, but only as far as the base color isn't changed too much. the idea is yes, try to use only the colors given in the palette (though black and white may be used....but sparingly)

@aki:

1. Yes, but try to keep it minimal.
2. Yes, that's fine.
3. Patterns/textures and shading may be used so long as the base color isn't changed too much.
