            Welcome!


      This contest is OVER. Thank you all!

      Three years without visiting this forum, but we are still on! Don't you remember us? Don't worry, we were the hosts of this contest, and we are back for celebrating our sixth anniversary with an increased family and all your awesome talent~

      In addition, this will be a special effort, since we both (my boyfriend and I) decided to leave Gaia for a while! We will not be closing the accounts, but we will sell all our items for feeding the prizes of the contest, so, in case of coming back, we will start from scratch.

      I, Naja Kaouthia, will be in charge of the thread management this time, since my boyfriend Corvus Enca did such an awesome job three years ago ^^.


Start date: May 9th, 2013
End date: Midnight September 9th, 2013. PST.
Award ceremony: September 11th, 2013. 19:00 PST.

Well, these designs are the cool version of ourselves.... XD joking: These are the characters we developed from ourselvers in a roleplay we have had for some years now, which has changed a lot through time. The information you are going to find below is a mix between our real lives and the roleplay set up, so you can choose the aspects you like the most. We are trying to put it as simple and coherent as possible, but it's possible we fail, so please, ask whatever you don't understand XD. For do so, go to the last post of this page and check our FAQs. If you doubt isn't there, quote that post and we will gladly answer it for you.

Basic set up of the roleplay

Among all the great kingdoms of fantasy, there's a little land called Ofiusa (from the word ophidian) because of the long and sinuous rivers, similar to snake bodies, full of little gold pieces that shine as scales. Swimming in the rivers and playing with the pieces of gold, Ofiusa's god, called Goldbach, lived happily until he noticed some criatures, as humans and elves, started to invade his land. Who were they, and what they wanted? Goldbach noticed they were just tired and hurt, lonely people, that escaped from their lands and wanted to rest. Deciding to take them in, Goldbach just prevent them for taking all the gold, and still mistrusting the newcomers, he hid.

Blood and hate came from the foreign lands soon, and some people who had came from a land called Androgenia decided to take Ofiusa from Goldbach, went after him and caused him a lot of pain. Consumed for the thirst of revenge, Goldbach recovered and decided to appear again, with some company, so he could take control of the situation. He had several sons, and gave them the wings he did not have, so they could go across the sky through the land as spirits of things. Those wild children started to punish by instinct the bad actions people did, and began to be known as Tormentors, causing nightmares and disturbing minds, souls, bodies and hearts.

Gold in the rivers began to dissapear, conflicts with other lands came, but there were still good people too, and they held the land and the god's tolerance. Ofiusa remained as a refuge land for them and the new hopeless. Anyway, Goldbach's wish for revenge never got satisfied and he was known as Rachsucht, the god of vengeance. He only truly loved his children, and wishing to have with them the calm he had before, he built a country villa around the richest river of all, accepting in Ofiusa people non related to the androgenian criminals. Since then, human passions, animal instincts and the fight against Androgenia's evil weave the life around the golden rivers.

        Kiss art minicontest

    This minicontest is OVER. Winners on next post.

    Since Yabanned and Johannes are having their sixth anniversary this July 28th, let's make this celebration bigger with a minicontest!

    What do you need to do for this one? Simple, just draw a headshot of bust-up of they both kissing. Headshot or bust-up, not waist-up of bigger, if you draw something that is not a headshot or a bust-up, or a scene where there's no kiss, the entry will go to the main contest!

    Prize is 400k gold
    User Image

    There must be at least three entries to award this minicontest. Deadline is on July 28th at midnight PST!

    Now, some important facts:

      - Kiss can be in whatever part of the face (mouth and lips, cheeks, nose, forehead, head and hair, etc.) except eyes: They both find disgusting eye licking and eye kissing, so please, don't draw that (you could still consider kiss on eyelids, but we encourage you to choose another option).
      - Skimo kisses are allowed and welcomed.
      - They both like french kisses a lot. However, if you choose to draw a french kiss, avoid the classic "saliva detail" because it's quite creepy.
      - Johannes is 26cm (9,8 inches) taller than Yabanned.

    Johannes tends to smile while kissing, and Yabanned tends to bite while kissing (and sometimes open her eyes too). After six years of relationship, it would be rare they still blush when kissing, and they don't, unless things are getting hot XD.

    Please use this form for submitting your entry or entries (you can submit as much as you want):

Award ceremony will take place on Wednesday, September 11th, 19:00 PST



      SELECTION CRITERIA

        Characterization (50%): Characters must be physically recognizable, and their attitude, expression, outfit and the pose/situation/action in which they are portrayed must match the provided descriptions for them.
        Creativity (20%): Illustrations would rather show the artist's interest on making a specific piece for the contest in the circumstances it is suggested, avoiding common places such as default poses and expressions.
        Technical skill (20%): Artist must demonstrate his/her ability regarding anatomy, lines, color and textures, in his/her style/technique of choice.
        Presentation (10%): Art must look clean and not rushed. Composition, use of space, mass and color balance are a plus.
        Bonus: Each piece has something particular that makes it special. It is hard to describe exactly what is it, and it is even harder to assign a percentage to it, because, finally, is in "that something" where lays art. So this factor will be kept in mind freely, following the appreciation of the contest's judges.

[color=#81b6e3]☸[/color] [b]Question:[/b]


      Asked questions and their answers:

      Q: Would it be possible to get some back story on the characters and on the name of the contest? It's possible that it's there somewhere, but I was unable to find anything... Thanks <3 [by du coeur]

      R: Well, about the name of the contest, it's because we wanted to give some continuity regarding another contest we made three years ago, called Petit Promenade, that means "Little Walk" in french. On that time, my boyfriend Corvus Enca and I were having our third anniversary and wanted to set up a "little walk" of the artists with us so they could see our relationship and share some of the happiness that time. Now, celebrating our sixth anniversary, we feel like we are reaching paradise (no matter if that sounds really cheesy, haha) so we decided to name the contest according to the path to the sky (heaven?) we found through the little walk. Dunno if it actually makes sense, but it's the idea ^^U. We decided to put something related to sky because this time we want to focus on flying scenes of the characters, too.

      About the characters, I will write a proper background for each one and will quote you as soon as I submit them to the character's section ^^U I finally updated their information with a proper background for each one and a general context, feel free to check it on the second post of the front page : )


      Q: I have a very important question!....What color are Christopher's socks?!.....? O_O ...seriously though XD [by Mindless Vandalism]

      R: Oh well, Christopher socks... they usually match his pants, but never are the same color of his pants, I mean, if he has brown pants, he can have dark green socks, or gray socks.


      Q:: Hey, do Ban and Johannes have a favorite flower? Kinda weird question, I know ... or rather, if you had to choose a flower for them, what would you choose? ^_^ [by hudster]

      R: It's not a weird question, they indeed have one! It's a kind of lily that grows here in South America, called "alstroemeria" or "lily of the incas". Here you have the article in wikipedia about them. It's their flower basically because they both like it a lot. Story goes more or less like this: Despite alstroemerias aren't unusual here, Johannes didn't know them until he met Ban. Ban's mother worked at flowers crops where there were species as roses, carnations, arum lilies, gerberas and, of course, alstroemerias, so, when Johannes met Ban, and went to her home for the first time, he found a lot of vases full of flowers, but the one with alstroemerias called his attention and made Ban very happy because those were (and are) her favorite flowers. He liked them a lot and they talked that day about it. Later, and in spite of the fact Johannes knew Ban hadn't a lack of alstroemerias, he decided to give her those flowers in one of their first dates and well, it's like their official flower since then. Ban favorite alstroemerias are like these ones, while Johannes favorite are more like these. And sorry for the big rant, I loved the question XD


      Q: So can the characters be drawn without wings? I'm working on an entry ;o [by LuckyMonster]

      R: Yes, they can be drawn without wings


      Q: Do your characters have set outfits or preferred outfits or do they pretty much wear anything? [by Hamster]

      R: They can wear pretty much anything that fall in their style.

      - Fänrir does not use clothes at all. He must NOT be drawn wearing collars or another pet accessories.
      - Yabanned likes high heels (sometimes really high), and crazy dresses. She likes the look of classic actresses like Marlene Dietrich or Greta Garbo, with hats, gloves and belts. She likes Coco Chanel image too, and she loves Alexander McQueen designs
      - Johannes dress like a metalhead, with black clothes, leather and metal accessories. Camouflage patters, heavy boots, black jean jackets, etc.
      - Nicolai dress punk style, with heavy boots, handmade clothes, leather jackets, etc. But, he likes striped suits too. He uses them usually gray and with red ties that match his hair and eyes. Sometimes, saying he needs them for working in the computer (that is not true) he uses heart glasses for kidding everybody.
      - Christopher: He like clothes made of wool a real lot. Vests, sweaters, scarfs, etc. He likes sleeveless t-shirts with printed text like this or this, he loves hats, and can wear female clothes, but he likes to mix them with the male clothes and make a very androgynous look, or sometimes he dress only with female clothes but let his chest uncovered so people can see he's a man, and stuff like that. Kinda wicked, "le male fatale", you know.


      Q: Can there be multiple submissions in different categories? [by RandomFandoms]

      R. Yes, you can submit as many entries as you want, in the categories you want. You can even put two entries in the same category
