SenshiStock’s 5 year Stockaversy is coming up so... It’s time for a new contest! This contest will have two parts to it and you are welcome to participate in either or both.  

PART ONE: In Pose Reference Perspective - DONE!!


CLOSED! Congrats to Tasastock for randomly being selected as the winner!

ENTRIES: senshistock.deviantart.com/fav…

Rules:
  1. Put on something tight and pretty form fitting. Underwear or a swimsuit is best, but shorts and a tank top will work, too. Whatever is comfortable!
  2. Take a photo of yourself from some kind of extreme perspective that shows some cool foreshortening.  Feel free to get creative with a props or settings!
  3. The photo should meet DA’s stock guidelines: more than 600px on each side, not too grainy, nothing overtly sexual
  4. Post the stock photo to the correct Stock & Resources category on DA.
  5. Send me a note with your entry.

Judging Methods & Criteria:
  • The winner was selected at random from all eligible participants, though entering more than once did not give you more chances.

Prizes:
All of the following prizes are awarded to the winner:
:bulletblue: 1 year subscription to DeviantART
:bulletblue:  $25 Amazon gift card
:bulletblue: A chibi drawing of any character or couple in this style from Strawberry-Dino
:bulletblue: A full color drawing from pristinepanda</a>
:bulletblue: Artwork from tenchibaka
:bulletblue: A signed, Sailormon related print by JessicaMariana
:bulletblue: Digital book from SereneAutumn
:bulletblue: More prizes to be determined! (Do you have a prize to contribute? Please let me know!)

PART TWO: In Your Art Perspective - DONE!!


Deadline was December 17th

ENTRIES: senshistock.deviantart.com/fav…
SEMIFINALISTS: senshistock.deviantart.com/jou…

Rules:
  1. YES! You CAN participate in part two if you didn't do part one! :D
  2. Take one of the images created in the first part of the contest (you can find them all here: senshistock.deviantart.com/fav…) and create artwork using the stock as reference or in a manipulation.
  3. The artwork can be in any medium but it should be a finished work (no sketches or doodles, doesn’t have to be colored but should look refined)
  4. The theme of the work should be related to your perspective of yourself. Think about what drives you, what makes you who you are, and use the artwork to express something about how you see yourself or the world.
  5. Be sure to submit your artwork to the correct category on DA.
  6.   Send me a note with a link to your entry.

Judging Methods & Criteria:
  • I am going to select 10 semi-finalists from all qualifying entries.
  • Semi-finalists will be selected based on how well they represent the pose (with allowance for style and composition) or, in the case of manipulation, how well they modify or use the pose in context.
  • Additional consideration will be given to adhering to the theme of 'self-perspective' so artists are encouraged to write a little bit about their work and how it relates.
  • The ten finalists will be narrowed down to three Finalists by popular poll.
  • I will be selecting the winner from the Finalists.

Prizes:
Everyone who enters this portion of the contest with a qualified image will be eligible to win the following prizes:
:bulletblue: 1 year subscription to DeviantART
:bulletblue:  $25 Amazon gift card
:bulletblue: Be the director for 5 images in the next SenshiStock shoot (most likely it will be just one model, but I will try to get a second if needed)
:bulletblue: Exclusive stock from PirateLotus-Stock
:bulletblue: Artwork from tenchibaka
:bulletblue: A signed, Sailormon related print by JessicaMariana
:bulletblue: Art from Dame-Hailey
:bulletblue:  More prizes to be determined! (Do you have a prize to contribute? Please let me know!)

All entries must be newly created for both parts of this contest.
*YOU MUST NOTE ME YOUR ENTRY.*  This is so I can keep them all organized.  DO NOT send your entries in a comment or they will not be qualified.  

If you have any questions, just ask! ^__^

JessicaMariana is holding a SenshiStockaversary contest, too! Check it out here ---> jessicamariana.deviantart.com/…
Something fun to celebrate my 5 year stockaversary! :w00t!:

Don't think I am going to make the deadline, oh well. :) Love the entries you have so far. At the very least, I'll have a great piece to work on and inspire me when I do get the time.

Can't wait to see what else is submitted!

Unless, by some miracle, my 15-month can give me the day to do art, I doubt I'll make it even under the deadline. :) I'll post it whenever it is done for kicks. Good luck everyone!

Can we create fan art for the stock (like say a Batman character) or does it have to be all original for this competition?

Did I understood right for part two huni:

I'd have to take a stock from part one for a ref and creating an artwork which expresses myself? :3

My english isn't that good, that's why I ask to make sure :3

Following by the other comments, you can enter part two if you weren't in part one, correct?

Also, can we only enter once?
Reply

Yes you can enter two without having entered one. :D

I'm okay with multiple entries, too.
