The contest has now closed. Voting via poll will last until the close of Sunday 6th June. Please vote for your favourate picture - it only takes a minute (obviously those who have entered shouldn't vote for their own picture ^^)

Good luck to all the contestants! We have nine wonderful entries and to run the risk of sounding sappy I think they all win ^^ Unfortunatly my finances don't run to giving everybody a subscription :p

Glamorous Aura Starfire by NetRaptor Aura Starfire - Contest Entry by BlushBunnyC3 :thumb163680895: :thumb163820133: Unexpected Encounter - C Entry by HyperSonicFire15 :thumb164865614: .:CE:. Electricity on Fire by KatrinaTheBat To the top by kaourika



This year my character, Aura Starfire, will be 10 years old, so I've decided to run a contest. To enter just draw Aura at any age and in any situation.

I've uploaded a profile if anyone is interested - aurora-cs.deviantart.com/journ… - which gives information on her past, present, future and family. Entries don't need to be restricted to taking place on Mobius, as Aura has travelled in many dimensions, so there is the potential for a crossover with any other fandom.

I would also be very grateful if people would help spread the word via their journals. :D

The closing date has now been extended for another month.

:bulletblue: Closing date - 30th May 2010 - NOW CLOSED.
:bulletblue: Voting period by poll - 1st to 8th June - OPEN.

Suggestions (in case anyone is interested, but lacking inspiration)

:bulletpink: A new clothing design.
:bulletpink: Special event (birthday, wedding, graduation)
:bulletpink: Running into trouble during her travelling years.
:bulletpink: Family.
:bulletpink: Relaxing/writing in journal.
:bulletpink: Sick or injured.
:bulletpink: Alternate Aura - i.e. human, animal, different origin.
:bulletpink: Meeting a famous figure from another fictional universe. Examples I know already are Doctor Who (eighth and tenth, but a brief encounter also with the fifth), J'onn J'onzz (Justice League), Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, Pokemon (none in particular, but the vague plot involves Aura, at age ten discovering her electrical ability when there and is manipulated by Team Rocket as she is trained in it).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
:bulletpurple: Prizes :bulletpurple:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


:bulletred: First prize - 1 year subscription to Deviantart, two full-colour pictures drawn by yours truly and a short fanfiction story.*

:bulletyellow: Second prize - 3 month subscription to Deviantart and one full-colour picture.

:bulletgreen: Third prize - 1 month subscription to Deviantart and one sketch.

All participants will be featured on my journal along with thumbnails of their art for a month following the results. Also, all entrants who don't win the above prizes will get a sketch of their character - some added incentive *grins*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


* I have written for several fandoms - Sonic the Hedgehog and Doctor Who predominantly - but am willing to try my hand at those I've not written for. However, if I am completely unfamiliar with the fandom you want me to write in, I will probably ask for an alternative. Fan-characters are fine, so long as I have a rough profile for them so I don't mess their character up.

:thumb165789383: I think this thumbnail code will work |D (not in this comment, obviously, but once you post it in the journal I mean)

If it doesn't work, then try going to THIS url [link] and copying the thumbnail code from there.

For some freaking stupid reason, DA apparently now has two URLs to each image -- ie, both [link] and [link] lead to the same image -- and it seems like the new style of URL is making thumbs break? I dunno, but if you look at your journal, you can see the two images where the thumbs aren't working are the two images where you used the new style URL. :shrug:

D: I was just now able to start work on your entry... and I might have it done by tomorrow, but I might not. Would it be okay if I submitted it after the "official" closing date, as long as it's before the voting period begins? Basically giving me one extra day @w@

If that's not okay, then I can just give the entry to you as a non-contest gift pic. xD

It's also worth looking at my favourites and the sub-folder 'Aura' and 'My other characters' for pictures of Aura and her family. My own gallery also has pictures of Aura's family, just look for the purple hair and black-tipped ears :D

AAaaaaaaaaah I SOOO want to enter this :icongwahplz:

But I just now heard of it and I don't think I'll be able to finish by that date (I've been away from DA and recovering from a wrist surgery :C)

Since there's only 2 entries thus far, do you have an extension in mind? Because I will TOTALLY do an entry for this if I get enough time.
