:iconinception-plz:Clapping Pony Icon - Thunderlane by TariToons :iconrarityclapplz:
So, I got some DA points, and since I got PM for a long, long time, I have no use for them. However, I know that people like points and Premium Memberships you can buy for points.

I decided to organize an MLP-related art contest about Tom the (giant) crab fighting ponies (or doing pretty much anything else you want)!
SzafaLesiaka is a co-organizer, and this contest is actually his idea.
PS: there is info at the bottom how to earn extra points for sharing this journal!

Rules:
:bulletred: Draw a picture/comic, or make an animation, or craft something (e.g. plushie, badge, jewelry, sculpture) that features my OC, Tom the Giant Crab as a main character.
Tom the Fiddler Crab - Reference sheet by labba94he has a reference sheet (notice he is an uca crab, i.e. his claws are of very different size), and He appeared in some pictures you can find on DA!
:bulletyellow: Yes, you are allowed to re-design him to suit your style, adjust the colors to your style etc. Just keep his claw size difference, and the number of his legs right.
:bulletgreen: I prefer a scene when he fights ponies (e.g. Rarity), possibly getting his butt kicked, or getting killed. However, you can draw any theme. You might be original, or choose the easy way (i.e. Rarity fighting Tom). It has to be at least slightly MLP-related, though.
:bulletblack: Yes, you can ship him.
:bulletblack: Yes, you can use your OC in the picture in any way you want.
:bulletblue: Cartoon violence and cartoon injuries are totally fine. Cartoon death is fine too.
:bulletblack: As for suggestive stuff, be aware, I'm not a fan of such things. However, if you want to draw something like that... :icontwilightconfusedplz: Better not...
:bulletred: You can use any medium to make your entry, but you are not allowed to use screenshots taken from the show or official comics, or stolen art, obviously.
:bulletyellow: The winners will be chosen by jury consisting of fan-artists, well-known DA commenters, me and my friends too. However, it will be announced later (I hope some of the potential judges will enter the contest!)
:bulletorange: Sorry, no fan-fic entries. I, and the jury won't have time to read all the fanfics. However, feel free to write fanfics with Tom.
:bulletyellow: You don't have to be my watcher to enter the contest (you are welcome to watch me, though :P)
:bulletblack: How to enter: After you've drawn your entry, put a link to it in a comment under this journal, or simply write me a note. And put info about this contest (at least a link to this journal) in the picture description)
:bulletblue: I think it's obvious that the entry must have been created after this contest was announced, it is after 14/04/2014, 23:37 Poland time :P
:bulletred: Deadline: May 12 - my birthday!


Prizes!
:bulletred: 800 points for the winner.
:bulletblue: 400 points total for artists who will receive a honorable mention. The number of prizes will be influenced by the number of entries (the winner's prize might also be slightly changed in case of an enormous amount of high-quality entries, or in case of a low number of entries). A creativity prize will be awarded for an entry with lower art quality, but with a cool idea.

:bulletblack: If anyone wants to donate to make the prize pool bigger, feel free to do so. Also, if anyone wants to offer picture requests or commission discounts as additional prizes, send me a note

Sharing is caring!
:bulletblack: up to 100 points total for 2 randomly chosen people who will share the info about this contest.
:bulletblue: Entrants of the art contest can also enter the "sharing is caring"
:bulletorange: In order to be eligible for this prize, you are supposed to write a DA journal on your account, and paste the link in the comments here. You must include the following in your journal: link to this journal, a copy of all the rules, prizes, and sharing is caring. Obviously, you are supposed to highlight the fact it's my, not your contest, haha.
:bulletred: In order to be eligible for the "Sharing is caring" prize, you must be my watcher.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.

112 deviants said :iconponygrouphugplz: The whole town of Ponyville was involved in helping RD learn the history of the Wonderbolts. I'd like people in my town to be so concerned about my exam results.
16%
103 deviants said :iconderpydashplz: RD can learn things only subconsciously, and never when she actually wants to learn. So, she is an idiot after all. And how come she didn't question all that weird stuff happening beneath her!?
16%
102 deviants said :iconsarcastictwilightplz: All the other ponies except Rainbow Dash knew the history of the Wonderbolts. Even Fluttershy and Rarity!
11%
72 deviants said :icondashlolplz: The pony conducting the exam didn't read the whole RD's essay, and gave her 100% anyway.
10%
67 deviants said :icontwilightshrugplz: It took quite a short flight to learn all the history of the Wonderbolts... So what was in that big book Twi gave to RD? Maybe it consisted mostly of credits and bibliography?
9%
62 deviants said :icongrannysmithplz: So, the granny smith apple was named after Granny Smith, when she discovered that kind of apples as a filly. It means that Granny Smith was a granny when she was a filly. Seems legit.
7%
47 deviants said :iconflutterpipesplz: I really envy ponies' ability to immediately come up and perform any musical and/or theatrical play for any occasion whenever it's convenient.
5%
33 deviants said :icondoublefacehoofplz: And why didn't they just dress up Twilight, or Fluttershy as RD, so one of them would pass the test for RD, and no one would notice. In case of failure, it wouldn't really get much worse for RD, right? No pony even suggested that!
5%
31 deviants said :iconmlpgummyplz: I'm more and more concerned about Gummy. He seems to be brain-damaged, and apparently no one cares about it.

28 deviants said :iconrainbowdashfearplz: RD wet her bed, um, cloud.
