:Can I submit pictures I've finished already for the contest?A
:Yes, you may, though the picture must have something to do with one of the songs that are selected
. Please don't submit something that you drew before that has nothing to do with any of the songs here. Q
: Okay, but how do I let people know that I drew it inspired by that song?A
: Just put it in your artist's comments or let me know through the note. It's simple. If you need any help doing so, just let me know by commenting.Q
: Can I submit pieces with a Mature Content label?A
: Of course! However, no 18+ pieces
, please. We want to preserve the open nature for all the contestants, and while we do support artistic integrity, we don't want anything overly explicit. Blood and mild gore are allowed, as well as mild to moderate sexual themes. Profanity is also okay, as long as you keep it under 18, along with nudity. And if anyone is curious, fan-slash (for instance, SamxOC, SamxMax,) is allowed, as long as the content is not overly explicit.Q
: What forms of art are allowed?A
: Any kinds, as long as it is drawn and colored by you. Collaborations are allowed, as long as the artists were both involved in the project.
What won't be allowed are photo-manipulations like this:[link]
