Kura's Color Contest


Let's see if we can start this contest up again. Not much has changed, but I think the hiatus has lasted long enough, don't you? Anyway, for those who are new, the whole idea of this contest is to create something according to a specific color that I will choose. Could be anything. Yellow, violet, aquamarine, lilac, crimson, black, etc. Anyway, it'll be some sort of color. Now for your part of the bargain. You have to draw or take a picture of something that is all or mostly that color. But remember, that color must be the focus of your art, whatever it may be. Oh, and make sure to read through all the rules and stuff carefully. Wouldn't want something lovely to be disqualified for a stupid reason, now would we?

So have fun! Get creative! And for goodness' sakes, follow these rules!:

1.) Do NOT steal artwork and then claim it as your own, putting it on this contest. You will be kicked out.
2.) Follow the Uploading Art Rules. It's just as simple as that.
3.) Follow the THEME of the contest. Anything that doesn't pertain to the contest will be disqualified.
4.) I will post the color of the month (or whatever time it takes to get enough entries) below this in big bold letters. If you can't see it, then I suggest an optometrist. :P
5.) There's a limit of three entries per person on any particular color.
6.) Please don't put "Vote for me!" in your mood. That irritates me a great deal, and you really do not want to irritate me. Read the next rule to find out why.
7.) There will be two winners: A People's Choice Winner and an Owner's Choice Winner. The People's Choice Winner is the entry that won the poll. An Owner's Choice Winner is the entry that I like best. Each person will receive a badge, which I have shown below the rules.
8.) Post your username and any other comment you'd like to make above your picture.
9.) Have fun! I don't want to make this too serious, because that would completely defeat my purpose ^_^;
10.) Click on the images to make them bigger and see them in all their amazingness!
11.) It is all right to have photographs, but make sure that they are not just colored over with the color of the contest. Any photo that's been colored in Photoshop or another art program so that it's the right color will be deleted.
12.) Questions? Ask me! I'm [Kuramasgirl] <3

Colors that have been used: blue, red, green, black, purple, orange, pink, yellow and grey, russet, white, teal, purple and green, gold, pearl, ROYGB(I)V, lavender, and turquoise.

2011-11-13 [pegasus1000]: I've been having trouble with the color. Silver is hard to draw and not be gray.

2011-11-13 [Kuramasgirl]: Well, the basic difference is that silver has highlights, because of its metallic qualities. If you're unsure of whether what you've done is acceptable, feel free to ask me first. :)

2011-11-13 [Zab]: And silver will reflect some colour from the surroundings :) Like.. a small line/spot next to the whitest highihts.. and making some bits saturated can help too.. maybe I'm just confusing it now? >_>

2011-11-13 [Triola]: Beginner tips for silver:
1. Take a photo of something silver, easy and quick :P
2. If you're using photoshop, use the dodge tool. That will give you more "shiny" highlights than making them yourself, unless you know what you're doing.
3. If you're painting or drawing, use actual silver paint or a silver pen


2011-11-13 [pegasus1000]: Thanks for the tips. Perhaps I'll do something...

2011-11-13 [Triola]: Go for it!

2011-11-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Thank you for the advertisement and the entry, [Nioniel]! :D

2013-04-04 [pegasus1000]: Hey [Kuramasgirl] Have you thought of revamping your color contest. The best colors being done has made this contest a bit drab... Let's play again. ;)

2013-04-04 [Mortified Penguin]: I want another rainbow contest! For Lady Rainicorn.

2013-04-04 [XxTsomexX]: I would love to enter from the beginning

2013-04-09 [Anvikit]: Kura hasn't logged in in over 200 days :( *sad panda*

2013-04-09 [pegasus1000]: Sense I have been helping out Kura for a while I was thinking of stealing the page but I guess I will start up my own contest. It will essentially be the same as this one, I still need to create the page so, More details to follow.

2013-04-09 [pegasus1000]: Peggy's Color Contest
-starting with RED. ;)

2013-07-29 [Kuramasgirl]: Well I've reappeared after I don't even know how long, but I don't really have the time or interest to start this up again (at least not in the near future). So I have no problem with you stealing the idea, Peggy. :) Good luck.
