Halloween Colouring Contest 2021

:blackcat: :blackcat: :blackcat:

Welcome back to our annual Halloween colouring and drawing contest! Grab your pencils and your paints, or your pads and phones and tablets! Time to show off your creative skills! :art: 

We have two divisions to choose from:

Division 1: Draw your own
This is where you get to show off all your creative skills! Design and draw your own Halloween pony from scratch. You may add a background but it is not required. Traditional/digital/mixed media, the choice is yours. No copied/traced lineart allowed, all work must be original.* Original designs only (no Hasbro characters) and no anthro/humanoid ponies, please.

*Textures, brushes and similar resources are allowed but these may only be used in a minor role, and no readymade backgrounds may be used. Please make sure that you have the permission to use any resources which are not made by you.

Division 2: Colour our lineart
Just what it says, you colour our lineart. Traditional/digital/mixed media, the choice is yours. The only rules: no Hasbro ponies, and no altering the lineart please –  our talented Art Mod Shaiyeh has once again worked hard to offer you an amazing picture to colour!

Deadline

Contest starts NOW! So get busy!

All entries are due by November 1st, 8 am EST (sorry, meant EDT obviously!).

Judging

Once again, the winners of the competition will be chosen by YOU the members! Keep an eye out for a voting thread after the deadline. The entries will be posted anonymously and all Arena members are eligible to vote.
:accomplished: We also have something new for you this year! In each Division, we will grant a Mods’ Choice award after the voting is over. The Mods’ Choice winner cannot be the same as the winner of the popular vote. 

Prizes!

The winners of the competition and of the Mods’ Choice will get to choose from the following pool of prizes donated by our Mod Team:

- G5 merch pack donated by tailrustedtealeaf – ships from the US
- Hidden Dissectibles figures donated by tailrustedtealeaf – ships from the US
- G4 surprise toy donated by Loa [to be confirmed] – ships from NZ
- simple digital pony art piece donated by tailrustedtealeaf (FiM style custom screenshot)
- simple digital or traditional pony art piece donated by Griffin (your choice, e.g. a set of ATCs, ref sheet, etc...) – ships from Finland/EU, if applicable
- simple MLP custom donated by Griffin (a variety of gens available; includes repaint + rehair in 1-2 colours, Hasbro style or other simple symbol/s) – ships from Finland/EU

Due to the increasing complexities with international shipping, we offer a selection of both digital and physical prizes. Winners will get further instructions about prizes and shipping, but if you have any questions or concerns before entering, please PM ColoringContest!

Ooo, I hope I will have time to enter, this looks fun!

I do have a question, for the first division can we do it in the style of Hasbro's ponies?  What I mean is: can I create my own unique character, but draw the character in, say, G3 animated style or G1 comic style or the like?

Yes absolutely! You can draw in any style, as long as it's not traced or a direct copy. :)

Spooky will be fine! The usual rules for mature content apply, and all entries should be family friendly. If unsure you can always PM the contest account! :)

Glad you were able to answer your own question :D Yes that's perfectly fine.

In case anyone else needs clarification, the rule is in place to ensure that no one uses copyrighted resources without permission / appropriate license, or grabs an image from Google to use as a background, etc.

I would imagine most downloadable brush packs and similar allow non-commercial use and would be okay, but anyone who wishes to use such resources is responsible for checking the terms before submitting their work. Default brushes that come with the programmes are of course perfectly fine to use.

So, I made a silly boo-boo... I sent in my entry for one of the divisions, before I realized you are only allowed to enter one division! :lmao: I was going to do both! Well, I'm happy with my entry, so I will stick with that one I guess! ;) But here's a casual reminder for everyone else, LOL!!

I sent a PM to the Coloringcontest account two days ago.  I don't want to appear impatient, I just didn't want to miss the 11-1 deadline.  Thank you for any help.
