The day of the Event has been changed.  It won't be on May 12,  it will be on the 2nd Saturday of May from now on (this year on May 10).  :dummy:

Events:
•Puzzle+Quiz.  I draw something and pieces of the drawing will be hidden on my account and in my Groups (maybe also side-accounts, I will mention on which accounts you will find something.)  These Puzzle pieces will link to sta.sh pages that contain an Emoticon Oc and you will have to guess who the owner of the OC is.

The puzzle itself is the main challenge, the oc guessing game is a bonus challenge.



•Emoticon Outline Challenge
I provide a few emoticon linearts, where you can only see the outline (:P). You have to take the outline and create a scene out of it, but you are not allowed to change the position of the lineart.
suggested by MafiaVamp




•Emoticon Challenges
I also thought about hosting small challenges on the day, where you have 1-2 hours to create your Emote. The Journals will be scheduled (they will posted every 1-2 hours) and to enter the challenge you have to post it within 2 hours on the journal. 




There will be special badges for each Challenge.
There won't be Point Prizes, I want that deviants participate because they want to have some fun and not just to win a few points. :shrug:






The Emoticon Appreciation day is in a few weeks  and I wanted to know what kind of Events you would like to see. Are there any Events from last year that you want to see again. Is there something you don't want to see?  Do you have any new ideas? :dummy:

1. I had the idea of an Emoticon/deviantArt related pictionary via livestream.  I would be drawing and the viewers have to guess what I am drawing.  The Chat would be on deviantArt.  I still have to test if it works at all.

It could work but I am way to nervous to do that :(   If you want to host the livestream event, go ahead! :hug:

Congrats! :boogie:

The Challenges will be on a small break, I want to focus on contest Entries and the Emoticon Appreciation Day. :hug:






Every 2 weeks there will be a new theme and different rules.
Even though this isn't a Contest there will be 3 winners and badges for all participants. The main goal is to challenge yourself. The winners will be chosen by the participants (by sending a note to me with their favourite entry, you can't vote for yourself. If nobody votes then there won't be a winner). The winner will chose the next theme and the new set of rules.
But I will be the host for the first 5 Challenges. (which means I will pick the rules/themes for the Challenges)

Theme:
"Book scenes"

You could pick any kind of book (comic book, instruction manual, novel, e-book etc.), pick a scene from the book and create an Emoticon for it.
In the description you would have to include which book you used and on which page you can find the scene.

Category: - Visual Purpose
Canvas size at least 70x40px / 40x70px
Post it in the Visual Purpose category.



Animation: - Optional.
You can decide if you want to create an animated or static Emoticon.



Deadline: - March 27 April 10- 10pm PDT
timeanddate.com/s/2kbb






BONUS CHALLENGES

Colours: - max 30:
To win the bonus Challenge you have to use less than 30 colours. Transparency not included.



Transparency: - No
To win the bonus Challenge you have to add a background to the Emoticon.



Frames - min 10 -  max. 40
To win the bonus Challenge you have to use more than 10 Frames and less than 40 Frames.




Send me a note with your Entry, include in the description that it is for this challenge.
If it fits to theme of other contests then you can enter them with your Emote as well.

You can enter as often as you want. :dummy:

Your piece needs at least 1 Emoticon. :slow:

It has to be a new Emoticon. (Created after the theme has been announced.)

For the first 5 Challenges, winners of the previous challenged can enter with their Emote as competing entry. As soon as the winner of the previous challenge will be the "host" of the new challenge they can enter as non-competing entry. They may decline to be the "host" of the Challenge, then I would be the "host".
In this case "host" means that they can pick the new theme and Rules but I would post the Journal.


Do you have any questions? :dummy:
