    Welcome to the Dragon Ball Drawing Contest!
    GENERAL RULES
    • There is no specific theme, but your drawing must be Dragon Ball related officialy. What does this mean? It means that OC's or meme-ish characters aren't allowed, however game-only Dragon Ball characters from official game releases are fine. Forms that a character still doesn't have are also allowed (for example: SSJ4 Trunks is fine while SSJ4 Piccolo is a no-no);
    • Your drawing can be done traditional or digital. Black & white or coloured*;
    • They can be of any size;
    • No tracing allowed! But the participants can use references;
    • Participants can sig their drawings, but during the voting phase the signature will be hidden digitally in the best way possible. After the contest is over and its winners are revealed, the drawings will be posted with their signature unhidden;
    • Send your drawing to me via PM. Participants can change their mind and submit another drawing, Just respect the deadline;
    • Don't tell anyone what you pretend to draw or which one is yours;
    • The deadline for drawing submissions is October, 15 at 5PM UTC.


    VOTING AND POINTS

    Five staff members and all section members will vote during a one week period. Their votes will give the following points:

    • Each staff member (PM voting only):

    First place: 5 points
    Second place: 3 points
    Third place: 1 point

    • DB Section Members (Poll voting only):
    First place in the poll: 10 points
    Second place in the poll: 6 points
    Third place in the poll: 2 points

    • Important: Coloured drawings* get +1 extra point while inked black & white drawings may receive that +1 point. A participant can't vote for his/her drawing in the poll. If he/she votes for a different one than theirs he/she will get +2 extra points for his/her entry.

    After the voting phase is over, all points will be calculated. The one with the higher amount of points is the winner. The maximum amount of points per drawing is 38 points (25 points from the Staff + 10 points from DB Section Members + 1 point if coloured + 2 points if the artist voted in the poll).


    PRIZES

    The winners will receive the following prizes for one month:

    1st: 175x350 Avatar: 12 points
    2nd: Sparkles: 5 points
    3rd: HTML Usertitle: 3 points

    • If multiple users tie for the same place then they will all receive the respective prize.

    Good luck!

    I think it is a great idea to have a voting done in such a way that the staff and regular members choose their winners.

    One WILL come in last place. That's the nature of every competition

    If being in last place puts them down, fuck em

    It is SUPPOSED to put you down

    So you either go "Fuck it, drawing is not worth it" or "I will become better till i am higher up"



    Your reasoning is part of the reason why kids today are spoiled
    Not everyone is special, and no one will always succeed, let alone on the first try.

    What you are doing is making people okay with doing whatever, hell, they still get something!

    You wanna encourage competition, and you do that by making the reward/prize scarce (read: more valuable), not splitting or sharing the prize to everyone

    You know how kids learn empathy? They say or do mean things to other kids, see their reactions, and go "oh that doesn't feel too good". With them losing a competition, even if they cry since they never lost anything, you teach them that he can't be the best or special by doing anything he wants - he has to work and strive towards whatever his goal is to be consistently good at it.

    :hestonpls:hestonpls:hestonpls . I get what you're saying man. I'm .not saying that "last winner mentality" is the right way to look at it or healthy for competetion . I'm just saying for the moment if you're feeling a little down after losing one could look at it that way to feel better. I'm not saying this is my way of thinking , rather it's an alternative way to look at it. This is probably what I should've said in that first response.

    If people wanna look at themselves as being actually in the first place while being in the last, they are free to do so

    I was just explaining why that might not be a good or healthy mentality

    Nobody should feel discouraged to enter the contest.
    If you have the desire to draw something awesome, if you want to put effort to it, and if you feel inspired, you shouldn't worry about what place you will take. Participate, do your best, and you will feel good and confident about trying and improving your skills.

    Draw your favourite character. Anyway, don't tell anyone who you are going to draw.
