    Default EoFF's Spooky Art Contest 2016!



    Halloween Draws Near!

    There's only so many ways I can introduce a Halloween competition having already introduced a competition earlier in the week. I'll give it a crack anyway.

    So this spooky holiday is coming up! And calendar events are creative mountains in the year. Halloween is no exception, with plenty of artists in various mediums crafting, drawing or painting Halloween themed works of beauty.

    Competition Details!

    So, here's the deal with this competition:


    • Use whatever artistic form to produce up to three pieces of art. Ink, pencil sketch, digital art, crafts and even sculpting, anything goes here.
    • Unlike the writing contest, there is a set theme. Halloween is a given, obviously, but beyond that? Final Fantasy! Yes, your piece of art must include Halloween elements with a connection to Final Fantasy. Make Rinoa a witch. Wrap Red XIII in bandages and call him a mummy. Draw zombie sailor Barret.
    • Up to three entries are permitted within the timescale. It is up to you whether to make one or three, but be aware of time, naturally.
    • There's a prize attached to this one as well. Go for the double!


    The most important thing to note are the deadlines. So, here they are:

    Submissions: October 6th - October 27th

    Please submit all your entries by the 27th, please! To do so, Mognet Message me your entries. With your art, you decide how best to upload, be it scanning, taking a photo, etc. If you are taking a photo, do it in good light.

    Furthermore, if you wish to write a short paragraph about your inspiration for your piece of artwork, do include that in the Mognet. That'll be posted beside your work and gives the viewing audience to know a little bit about the thought process behind your piece. Yes, it can really be "I wanted to see Barret in a spooky sailor costume, I had to make that dream a reality".

    This give you fully three weeks to complete your entries. Good luck!

    Voting: October 28th - November 4th

    Yes, we determine the winner by voting for them anonymously! Voting will be done via a separate thread, with a blind poll attached with all the entries. You will notice that voting will exceed beyond the 31st. The contest has been staggered slightly behind the writing contest so you have a few days where there's no overlap. If you're interested in both, be assured that you have some time dedicated to both competitions!

    This will mean that the winner will be announced November 5th. Which in England at least is Guy Fawkes night which, with those creepy masks, is as close to Halloween as you're gonna get.

    So, To Recap...


    • Make a spooky piece of art (or three!), and then Mognet Message me them.
    • You have until October 27th for submitting entries.
    • Voting will then commence until November 4th.
    • The winner will be announced on Guy Fawkes, November 5th.


    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me for clarification. This thread can be used to indicate interest, salivate over Sailor Barret, share ideas, salivate over Sailor Barret... where was I?

    Have fun, EoFFers!


    Don't Forget!
    The Deadline for Submissions is October 27th!

    I kinda figured that maybe he just didn't get enough entries to post them B) *dusts cobwebs out of a corner of the studio*

    You would be correct. Unfortunately, I only received one entry, which - strong that it was - just isn't enough to sustain a contest. Very sorry! Despite this, you did enter the competition and put some effort in, so you're in line for a small winner's present! Which I'll be arranging. Anyway, for anyone who is wondering, this is what Starlet produced:
