March Challenge: Video Games!
(example art by reapersun)
~Ends March 31~
PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE BEGINNING!
The theme this month is to crossover any version of Sherlock with a video game! Our definition of video game is not strict, so it can also include PC games, MMO’s and mobile apps, as well as the traditional console games. Any game that is played digitally on a screen~
Our preference is to focus on Sherlock characters being placed in the environment of the game, being designed to fit into that universe, either as a version of themselves or in the place of other characters, but if you have a good idea that involves including one of the original characters of the game, that’ll be fine too. Just don’t draw something like, realistic Sherlock dressed like normal, standing in normal looking realistic 221b with short cartoon Mario; try to use the game universe! You can still have Mario coming to Sherlock to solve a mystery, if you want to change genres, but just make sure Sherlock and 221b fit the same style as Mario lol~
Also we will NOT accept art that is simply of Sherlock characters PLAYING video games.
The examples above are BBC Sherlock and John, but please feel free to use any version of Sherlock, and any other characters you would like.
Before starting on your piece, please read the full guidelines under the read more.
-Entries using the same game as someone else are fine! If you’re not the first person, just make some effort to make your piece different.
-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 photo). 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 challenge 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.
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!
