Hi everybody! It's time to do a contest! I had one some time ago and it went well, so I'm going to try again.

So, I am in progress in developing a video game, and I wanted to see what you guys had in mind for a class/outfit.
:star: Writers are allowed in this contest. Artists are allowed. Everyone is allowed! 

:heart: Please read all the rules, submission details, and how I will judge. Please set aside five-ten minutes to read these rules, there's a lot of details. 

Rules:

All of these are important, so please read these.

:heart: YOU DO NOT NEED TO A WATCHER TO ENTER! 

:heart: To begin, and most important, this outfit must be an original design. It cannot be licensed already. Outfits from Final Fantasy, Bravely Default, and etc, are out. I do know those outfits, They are my source of inspiration. and you will be disqualified if I catch you doing that. That doesn't mean you can't base it from that, but if it's copying every stitch, I will talk to you. 
            :star: For example, if you wanted to draw a red mage class, you can, but you can't take any final fantasy design of that and say it's yours. You can base some of the concepts from games. 


:heart: On that note, please don't submit something you are already using, for say, a book or your own characters. I'd recommend starting from scratch. 

:heart: If you have an amazing idea for the contest but aren't an artist, just write out the outfit you have in mind! You must have full details of what you'd see from the class!

:heart: I am not looking for artistic skills, I'm looking for creative people that can make a class and design an outfit. So, if you think you are a mediocre artist, submit what you got anyway. It might win! 

:heart: If you want to submit more than one class, go ahead, but only one can win!

Submission Details.


So, this is what needs to be in your submission. They all must be included to be a valid entry, okay? This section will give you tips on how you can win. This section also has a lot of writing. If you have a question, please just comment/note me. 

For everyone!

This is crucial to everyone who is entering! You can later read the extra rules for the ones who are drawing/the ones who are writing.

Outfits:

:heart: ALL ENTRIES MUST AT LEAST BE A TORSO SHOT IF YOU ARE DRAWING. I WILL NOT ACCEPT HEADSHOTS. YOUR ENTRY CAN DESCRIBE THE BOTTOM IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO A TORSO SHOT, BUT FULL BODY IS IDEAL. FOR WRITERS, YOU MUST DESCRIBE THE ENTIRE OUTFIT.

Weapon: 


:heart: ENTRIES MUST HAVE A WEAPON. This is a design for a class, not an outfit. (Outfit is the number one thing I'm looking at though.) You can go two ways of this: 1) Draw the weapon with the outfit. 2) Describe the weapon in the artist's section. If it is a magic base class, you must give me two types of magic they can use.

Note: Visa is the only one of my three ocs that can use magic. Candy absorbs Magic and Nemesis doesn't see the point of it.

The more creative the weapon, the more likely you will win.

Abilities: 

Abilities are crucial to the class, and this is where you can get really creative. I need three abilities. Three, that's it. Two is acceptable, but three is ideal. One ability must be connected to the weapon. 


:star: :star: :star: star: This is so important, I'm putting four stars near it. Please tell me what class you are thinking about doing before you submit. Why? I don't want to end up with three outfits of the same class! The more creative the class, the more likely you are to win! If you think you have a really great idea and want to keep it a secret, please let me know that too.

For the ones who will be Drawing:


:heart: I work better when I see the outfit/weapon/class.

:star: Please refrain from using bases. It would be better if you just wrote out the class rather than use a base. If you feel like you must absolutely need a base, please talk to me. 

:star: You do not have to draw my OC, you can draw yours in the class outfit if you wish, but if you do that, please tell me which one of my three OCs you'd like to see in the outfit.  (This is acceptable, but you must tell me which oc you'd love to see it in)

                :heart: You have the options to once again draw Nemesis, Candy, and Visa like in the last contest. It is highly suggested you draw Nemesis. To be honest, if you draw my OCs, it will be easier to see what they'd look like in the outfit already and your chances of winning will heavily increase.  If you need details on my OCs, please note me. Otherwise, you'd be reading this all day.

             :heart: If you do not want to draw an OC and just make it a mannequin with the outfit on, you are completely okay to do that, too! (That will also be highly acceptable.)  

                :heart: If you want to just one picture of the outfit and describe the abilities in the artist's comments below, that is acceptable and recommended. Please do not forget to describe or draw the weapon! I just need a visual of the outfit! I do not want necessarily want a back/front reference, I just need to see the front of the outfit

dA ID by TheBirthdayMuffin


Frontal pictures like this would be acceptable. 

For the ones who will be writing!


:star: If you are going to be writing about the class, Worry about detail as you describe the class. Please also state who you'd like to see in the class most. Please also follow the rules for everyone. Note: With writers, let me know in advance if you want to write instead of draw. It may seem easier, but you'd be surprised. 


That is a lot of rules! So, what are some tips that can help me win?


:star: Awesome question. Okay, so this is what I'm looking for: creative classes that could be transferred into a drawing. 

:star: My main focus of judging will be the outfit, but if you put as much of effort into the weapon and abilities as you do the outfit, I will be able to tell. 

:star: Fanservice...try to avoid it. I don't like basing outfits on fanservice, and it's not that creative. IF you feel like you need to show some skin/cleavage/whatever, go for it, but if it's obviously fanservice, I may have a hard time connecting to the design. Putting someone into a bikini and claiming that is a class is just cheap marketing and I probably won't accept it.

:star: Ask about the OC you'd like to see your class in. I can give you tips on the character and things they like. It will make designing easier! Ask about me! If you know more of what I personally like, chances of you winning will be better!

:star: Do a new hairstyle or make minor changes to the oc I'll be doing. Minor changes in the basic oc design can do a lot. 

:star: Everybody has a warrior. Everyone has a ninja. Avoid cliches. Look up random crap to get ideas. You can even base your outfit on hell, an ice cream cone. What you ate for dinner last night, a hobby, and/or whatever. Seriously. Think outside the box. It doesn't need to be a typical RPG class. I'd rather prefer it was random, because that can be cool as hell. Also, if it makes me laugh, you probably won.
         
        If you have a badass costume for a warrior though, go for it. Do something new! Make me feel like I need to have that design in my life! As I said before, I'm looking mainly at the overall design of the class. 


:star: I once again, am not looking for artistic skill. I'm looking for a well developed class! "But I'm not a good artist." I don't care. If you are someone with a bazillion ideas, this contest is right up your alleyway, kiddo.

Judges.


I want another judge. Someone that has great fashion sense, knows a lot of RPGs, and has an open mind. Also, creative. If you think you want to be a judge, you probably can't enter the contest, but I will make it worth your while. 
 

Fill this out. 

Name: (Nickname):
How much fashion experience you have: 
How much of an experience on video games:
What's the most important concept of a class?:

:star: I want one co judge.


Priiiiiizes: 


Okay, so let's start with this. So far, I'm assuming five people are entering for sure. I'm sure there  will be more, but let me explain how this will work.

1-5 deviants: Only first place. 200 :points: to the winner. Free commission from me of a full colour drawing. 
5-10 deviants: You will unlock a second place. First place goes up to 300 :points:. Second place goes to 150 points  and a flat colour. 
10-15 deviants: TBA.
Examples of a full colour include:

:star: Tag a friend! If you win the contest, your buddy friend that you advertised this to will get a free headshot. If you post a JOURNAL, first, you will get my love, and secondly, you will get 5 :points:! (I'm a little broke, I apologize.) You must enter the contest if you will be getting the points, though! 

The reason I don't want to do this in set prizes is so I can a) Get more people to enter. b) I'm a busy person and I don't want to end up drawing tons of art when there's only five entries. 

I am taking donators. If you are a donating type, please donate. I will love you forever and donators can enter! 


:heart: You can enter via tumblr, but you need to have a dA account to get the points. If you want to enter but don't have a dA, you MUST contact me really soon. 




Deadline: November 18th. If you need an extension, let me know! I'm more than happy to extend! 




Remember: Creativity is key! Have fun, and good luck!  If you have questions about anything, comment below/note me. I'd love to help you guys! 




Entries! :heart:


Contest - White MagesWhite Mages
General Summary
White Mages are commonly considered healers in a battle. They are primarily support, with a couple of offensive tactics to hold their own. White Mage lore in "Final Fantasy" is "Heal the body, heal the heart". From this, I can gather it's very likely they also have purification attributes as well. Some Magical Girls utilize healing techniques as well, though they're not considered White Mages due to the franchise they're in.
Statistic wise, White Mages have high magic rate, but it's a bit lower than a Black Mage or a Summoner. A Seer, an upgrade to White Mages, have higher magic rate and are more able spell casters.
Weapons
Initially, White Mages used staves and maces. Eventually, their weaponry changed to magical staffs and rods. The staffs and rods vary depending on how powerful the mage is. Beginners have a pink magical girl-esque rod, while more advanced sages have eloquent
  • Mood: Anxious
  • Listening to: Drumming Song
  • Reading: Nothing
  • Watching: Nothing
  • Playing: Tomadachi Life
  • Eating: Food
  • Drinking: Dr. Pepper.

Ooooh okay, so yes, it depends. 


If you are a popular enough artist, THEY can sell your art. It's in the terms and conditions. It started when someone's adventure time art is stolen. I hope there's a petition out there!
