Banner and OC Contest
« on: January 25, 2017, 10:51:00 PM »
Hello, dear members of Fiver's Honeycomb. We're holding a 2-part contest. Check it out!

1) OC Contest
As mentioned in a previous thread, several members were interested in creating an OC mascot for Fiver's Honeycomb. While we've decided that our forum doesn't need a mascot, it'd still be fun to hold a contest. Deadline is February 28. Deadline extended to March 31st.

02/03/17 edit: There are now two categories in the OC Contest: Drawing and Writing. Please follow these guidelines.

Drawing:
- The entry can be any form of visual artwork (ex. sketch, painting).

Writing:
- The entry can be a description, biography, story, or poem of a WSD OC. If you want to do something not listed, post in this thread.
- Keep the entry approximately 200-300 words. This website can help you with word count.

~~

2) Banner Contest
Fiver's Honeycomb will have its 6-year anniversary! It's time for a new banner, and we're going to have a contest. The winner will have his/her banner at the top of the forum, replacing the one we have now. Since the anniversary is in April, deadline is March 31.

Some Guidelines:
1) The banner must be a JPEG, 800 pixels wide and 255 pixels tall.
2) It must contain the text "Fiver's Honeycomb: the books - the movie - the series".
3) If you want credit for your work, you should put somewhere, "By So-and-So" ;)
Otherwise, you're free to do whatever you want that's within Forum Rules.

~~

As usual with these contests, don't be shy to join because you think you don't have the skill. We value and appreciate all entries, from the beginner to the expert.

Questions or comments? Post below, and have fun!

Yay, this is one interesting Competition we have here.

If only I could draw an Oc though. How about writing, is that allowed my dear Brighty?

Hello, everyone :)

Due to several comments, we've decided to also include a Writing Category in the OC Contest. Please follow these guidelines:

- The entry can be a description, biography, story, or poem of a WSD OC. If you want to do something not listed, post in this thread.
- Keep the entry approximately 200-300 words. This website can help you with word count.

~~

The deadline for both Drawing and Writing is still February 28. We think a month is enough time, but if there are any objections, feel free to post :)

Happy creating!

Due to the lack of entries (c'mon, pick up the pace, everyone :D ), we're extending the OC Contest deadline. Now both the OC and Banner contest entries are due by March 31st.

It seems like we're always extending deadlines xD

[CALL]CockatielPony[/CALL] I really like your entry :)

Here is my first entry, a short story for the OC contest.  I resused a character from a (now abandonned :( ) RP I participated in.  I hope you will like it :)

Quote from: Nettleon
The rabbit was calmly hopping between the trees.  She briefly stopped to clean her ears, and sniff the air.

Nettle had been born a few seasons before, at a nearby warren.  As she grew up, she seemed to become dissatisfied with warren life: nothing interesting ever happened.  The endless cycle of sleep and silflay, with the occasional story and game of bob-stones, was rapidly getting boring, and she wanted to change that.

Nettle spent a while trying to think of a solution to this problem, until the idea came to her one late summer morning at silflay.  Nettle stared into the distance; the entire world lied beyond.  Why should she limit herself to just one small piece of land, around the warren?  Why couldn't she explore, see what lied beyond that row of trees over there?

She quietly hopped away from the warren, without telling anyone.  Nobody tried to stop her, and the odds were that nobody ever noticed her absence afterwards.

Nettle was reflecting on this decision, when suddenly she noticed an unusual scent.  She looked around her, and soon spotted a homba, hiding in a nearby bush.  She waited a few more moments; as soon as the homba pounced, she gave a powerful kick of her hind legs, sending dirt flying in its eyes.  As it stopped to clean its face, Nettle ran away as fast as she could.

Some distance later, Nettle stopped, the homba too far away to pose a threat.  This was not the first time she had been through a situation like this since she left the warren.  It was dangerous, but she reasoned that the excitement it brought was much better than life at the old warren.  She lied down and started to nibble the grass in front of her.

I'm also working on a drawing for the OC contest, and a banner, but they are not ready yet.

Have you considered making each day count - doing something meaningful each day - instead of letting the days and weeks and months and years fly into oblivion? --Bright Side

Great drawing CockatielPony.   :blackberry-buck
