PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE BEGINNING! (or at least skim the bolded bits!!)
Hey all! For the second half of September, Let’s draw Sherlockis running a special short two week challenge: 221b gets a pet!
Ends: September 30th!
YOUR CHALLENGE: The various incarnations of Sherlock and John don’t often have pets; there was the movie version’s beloved Gladstone the bulldog and Elementary’s Clyde the tortoise (and Sherlock’s beekeeping hobby, which sort of counts as pets??). Our challenge to you is to come up with a new pet for 221b! How they get it, why they get it, whether they even want it there or not, it’s all up to you! Our only requirements are to include the pet and both Sherlock and John’s reactions to the pet in the piece. (For bonus kudos you can name the pet too!)
What constitutes a pet? Well, generally it’s an animal companion, but, if you feel like getting a little creative with it, we’re open to interpretations! Message us if you want to know for sure if your idea qualifies.
-You can include any pairing, any rating, any version of Sherlock. If your artwork is explicit it’d be appreciated if you could put it under a preview or read more. We’re very flexible on content.
-You can submit art (drawn/painted/etc), graphics/photo manips, cosplay, photography, or crafts. Photo manips should alter at least 50% of the original image to qualify (meaning you can’t just paste a face onto a screencap of your screen). If your image happens to have fic attached to it, that’s great, but we will not be accepting purely fic submissions this time around.
-We aren’t critical of quality! Whether you choose to push yourself and make something elaborate, or only have an hour or so and just want to participate, we love everything we get! Also, don’t put your work down in your comments!
-Please create new art! We feel it’s missing the point of the challenges to accept old works.
-Limit of submissions: max 1.
-How to submit: post it to your blog. Tag it “letsdrawsherlock” within the first five tags (you must do this when you post; if you edit in the tag later it generally doesn’t appear under the tag listing). You can also send us your post ID via askbox.
A reminder about our buddy group: Let’s Write Sherlock!!! This group is run by a different set of people, so the challenges will not be the same, but they update much more often than we do! Feel free to enter both!
