Contest:DESIGN YOUR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL COMPANION!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 26, 2013, 12:20 PM


CONTEST:

:star: DESIGN YOUR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL COMPANION! :star:

WIN A HANDMADE POSEABLE DOLL OF YOUR DESIGN!


EDIT

Since some extremly kind deviants noticed me about DA's policy, where I cannot charge a submission fee I'll have to make some changes.. I will not close the contest! You'll still be able to win a poseable doll of your design! But there will be no fee and I have to remove some of the prizes.. but if you want to donate a prize~ please send me a message~


First words:


Hi everyone! I know this HUGE contest may have come as a surprise, but I really hope you like the idea and choose to enter! Since my doll-making now have become a little obsession and a great hobby I've decided to try and make my dolls a little more known around the internet. I've had a lot of extremely flattering compliments about my dolls though I've never actually gotten any commissions for them. I figure thats because of the high price of ordering one and that I am little known around. So I decided to make a contest where you can actually design and have your doll made for free! Yes, I'm not joking.. you don't have to pay anything, just design and you'll have a chance of winning your own poseable doll! The doll will be worth around $254, which is a lot! you don't even have to pay the shipping. I will loose a lot of money making this contest, though it will be totally worth it! ~ (-v-)~


I really hope your read through the contest information, agree with the terms and start designing your companion immediately~ 


:star: If you don't know what a possible doll is, check out this page: lavnic.com/page0/page3/handmad… :star:

RULES (MUST READ)


The design must have been drawn/made after the 26th of July 2013. You can not enter with an existing OC. This is because this is not only supposed to be a contest, but also a chance and challenge for yourself personally. I want you to design a spiritual companion that fits you, as you are and no one else.


The entry fee is taken away because of DA's policies! but if you want to donate, i'll open a point donation thingie : ) 

I would highly appreciate donations! : )


The design cannot have more that one pair of wings, 4 legs, 2 pairs of horns or 3 different accessory. This is because I have to limit the cost to make the doll to the minimum of a medium doll that is $254. Remember to check this before you enter, I cannot accept a design that ignores this rule : )


One contestant can enter as many times as they want! Many entries will not conclude in a larger chance of winning. I would recommend the contestant to focus primarily on one design and work on it so that it will look the best. And not make many half-thought-through designs that may not be as good as they could have been. If you have two great ideas, then sure, submit! Though I do not recommend submitting more.


If the contestant want to change the design already entered, they must edit the deviation (deviantart) and upload a new document, or if outside deviantart: Send me an email with both the old and the new design. I think this is quite clear, no explanation needed? : ) epost: dina@norlund.no


Have fun and put your heart into it! Design a spiritual companion that you actually want to exist and walk beside you! If you do not have fun it'll only end in a lazy and bad design. The more heart and explanation you give me of your companion: the greater chance of winning!


---

And now to the exciting stuff~

:star: PRIZES: :dance:


:star: 1 place: Your own design of your personal spiritual companion made into a poseable doll! The doll will be worth around $254 and I'll pay for the shipping. This is the grand prize and can only be won by one contestant~


:star: 2 place: A bust painting of your spiritual companion! Worth around $40 and painted digitally be me. Only one winner~


---


What I will be looking for: ~(-v-)~


A design that clearly have been made with a lot of effort and heart! It don't have to be well drawn or extremely complicated to win. You can even draw a stick animalI only need to see the effort that you've put into it. That is the only thing I'm looking for~ (-v-)~


---


The deadline for this contest is: 

September the 30th 00:00AM (GMT + 2:00)


I'll give you a lot of time to finish this design! I'll also keep updating and remind you of it so you won't forget! This is a extremely good offer, and I hope the lot of you will take it ~(-v-)~ 


Please spread the word and this journal! It would mean the world to me if you did~ <3 + if you do share this journal I'll try to make a feature journal for all who have supported this contest by sharing :)


If you have any questions or anything that you're not certain of, please either note me (Lavnic) or send me a e-post: dina@norlund.no

- this contest will also be posted on facebook, furaffinity and lavnic.com -

Aah, thank you for answering! :la: Sorry for being a bother but Ive got one more question. I know the creature cant have more than 4 legs in total, but it can have wings added to that, and Im wondering - can it have some small fingert/a little hand part attached to the wings even if it has 4 legs already? Kinda like a bat has small fingers on the wing if you know what I mean. I totally understand if that not okay though. Just have to ask. ^^

Here is my Entry! I explained everything  about him in the description: fav.me/d6l14q4

Honestly I wanted to put more into him but with being sick and having so much work to do I wont be able to do much more atm ;_;
I am seriously in love with his design though.

Also ignore the baby version in the bottom right corner, that was just for fun and I thought it was cute

Yeah well, I've been meaning to design a personal spiritual companion for a while now, although my inuit dog with shells is already like a muse, we can't have already made designs, but I need the challenge ;P
