December Challenge: Gift giving!
(example art by katzensprotte)
~Ends December 31st~
In the spirit of the holidays, the challenge theme this month is gift giving! Choose a character in Sherlock (any version, BBC, RDJ, etc) and give them a gift! The gift could be from another character(s), or from you, or whatever you can imagine. You can draw them unwrapping it, discovering it, deducing it, rejecting it. It could be given for any holiday you choose, or any reason, not just Christmas. The gift could even be given out of spite rather than love @-@ Let’s just see some giving spirit!
BONUS CHALLENGE: Make your piece a gift for someone! Draw something that you know someone else likes and dedicate it to them~ This isn’t required; we just thought it might be fun :))
BONUS BONUS if you want to make one of those anime girlfriend style posts where you bring up a screencap of the character on your laptop and present their gift to the screen like they are a real person then we will accept that as a 3rd entry. Sorry followers but those are hilarious and I hope we get a lot of them ಠ_ಠ
Before starting on your piece, please read the full guidelines under the read more.
-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 make an attempt to construct a new image from several sources and make creative modifications (meaning you can’t just paste a face onto a screencap). Here is a collection of manips that are on a level of modification we would accept. (Unfortunately, we’ve had to be more strict on manips and graphics lately since we’ve gotten a lot of them. ) 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, even if we can’t include it for some reason! 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 2
-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.
How posting works: all of our mods track the tag “letsdrawsherlock” and we queue entries periodically from there. We don’t doublecheck any entry once it’s queued, so if you make a change to an older entry, be sure to send us a note about it to make sure we get the correct one.
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!
