If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
- Visual entries only.
- All entries must comply with deviantART's policies and terms of service.
- All entries must be submitted to #CR-FanArt-Contests in the appropriate folder. If you don't want to join the group, note ^Lyricanna or ^KasumiCR and we'll request your entry to be part of the contest folder.
- We wont accept any entries that weren't uploaded to deviantART's Fan Art gallery.
- You can enter as many times as you want, but you can only win with one entry.
- There are no fandom restrictions. You can redesign any character(s) from any fandom(s) you want.
- The description has to include a link to official art of the character you're redesigning.
- Fan characters (OCs) are welcome, as long as you credit the creator, fandom of origin and link to an official image of them.
- The contest starts on February 25 and finishes on April 26 at 11:59 PM PST
- 1 year Premium Membership
- 3000 deviantART Points
- Fella and Llama Plushie Set*
