Deviants

So this months theme is fantasy as suggested by :iconmittenn:

Feel free to use your own interpretation on the theme! When I think of fantasy I think of elves, magic and strange creatures but maybe you fantasize about something else? Let your imagination run wild! As always if you do not wish to draw the character in the theme you are not obligated too. The theme is just merely a jumping off point as well as something to get those creative juices flowing!

So there are a few of you who have no submitted yet for July and I realize that the theme for last month was late so you get a leeway on that but just keep in mind that you may not join August's theme if you have not submitted you entry for July.

I was also wondering if it would be helpful to you guys if we kept track of your postings here in the journal so you can know who is posting the most and who still needs to post for whatever month? Please comment below on what you think about this! Thanks!

Now if you'd like to sign up for this month, please do like last time: Comment with the following information:

:star:Name: Your OC's name.
:star:Ref:  Any relevant links - pictures drawn by you or others, reference sheets, any helpful written information.
:star:Short Description of Personality:  Anything that gives the other person a good idea of who your OC is.
:star:Theme suggestions:  Your suggestions of what you might like to see the other person draw for you!
:star: Next Months Theme: What you would like to see for next months theme

Changed a little minor detail for when you sign up. I think for me it is always helpful when the person suggests what you might do with their character in this theme, so I have added it!

You can submit the same OC again if you'd like, or a different one. You are welcome to submit two OCs if you would like to give your match options - ie if you have a cat OC but want to give people the option of drawing a human in case they're terrible at drawing cats, or perhaps if they're terrible at drawing humans but good at drawing cats.

Sign up deadline is August 10th (so the matches go out on August 11th). The tentative ending date for this month is September 2nd, 11:59 pm PDT. That is 21 days to get your drawing finished! If all the entries get submitted before then, the next round will start earlier than that. And I know hurricane season is upon us in North America, so a reminder that deadline extensions are perfectly acceptable in cases of hurricanes and other natural disasters that may prevent you from drawing and submitting your artwork online.

Submissions go in the August 2014 - Fantasy folder.


And remember, don't start drawing until you get your assignment. If you're confused, see here: monthlyoc.deviantart.com/journ…

In addition to what angelliv said, we also just take regular art submissions of original characters, stories about them, and even memes that are relevant to original characters. This post monthlyoc.deviantart.com/blog/… has an explanation for just the regular side of submitting things.

This post monthlyoc.deviantart.com/journ… has stuff about the MonthlyOC events that angelliv explained.

Hello

Well basically its like a secret art trade. Every month a journal will be posted with a new theme and if you would like to participate in that theme you comment on the journal with an OC of your choice (please make sure you have drawn ref for the OC). Then you are given your assignments in a couple days to draw for one of the other people who also commented. You have a due date posted in the journal so just make sure you get it posted on the due date. Then you also have someone else drawing your oc in that theme. Its kind of like a secret art trade.

We are also giving away prizes at the end of the year. The person who joins the monthly trade the most will get an art book of the admins choosing and runners up get drawings from the admins.

Let me know if you have questions about anything else.

Oh cool ^^

So what about the people who don't enter the art trade? What if, for example, I was busy that time. Would that be ok?
Can pictures of my ocs (drawn by me) be uploaded also?

Can I enter using Kisekae? It takes a little less time than by hand , then scanning into computer.(and it looks better, clearer)

I've joined any way, cause I like the idea of OC art trades XD

you can still upload to the group if you do not join the trade but it does not count towards the prize at the end of the year!

we ask that it please be your own drawing

Hey! I was wondering, how can I have a featured OC, or as you call it, 'posting', I think? I'd really like to have one of my OC's drawn :)
Sorry, I just got kind of cunfuzzled.

well you have to read the latest journal and draw the OC featured for the month. Draw the OC to the best of your ability. Then at the end of the month the owner of the OC drawn picks the winner and they pick one of their OCs to be drawn.

Do you understand?
