OK, so before I get into the details of the contest, I just want to thank everyone who has joined Steven-Universe-FC, I can't believe we have 8000 members in the group!! Thank you to everyone for making our group welcoming and lively, with journal theories and requests/commissions, roleplaying, and drawing streams, and for everyone who has submitted their terrific art and literature!! I can't wait to see how this group grows. :D

This contest is a way of saying thank you to everyone, for all 8035 of you. I can't wait to see the entries!

CONTEST SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 8th


CONTEST DESCRIPTION



Contestants will make a literature piece, artwork, craft, or collage of a CANON character (no OC's) or idea growing through an event in Steven Universe. The event that influences the character/idea MUST be canon (Gem Drill, Malachite, Rose's death, etc.).  The artist/creator will also provide a description below (at least 3 lines) explaining how their piece demonstrates the theme given using evidence from their piece, and how the title fits the piece. The pieces will be judged on concept, execution, title, and explanation.

THE PIECE MAY HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER BUT NOT MORE THAN ONE GENERAL IDEA. For example you can do the theme of love growing throughout the piece and then have Pearl's love, and Ruby's and Sapphire's, but that same artwork cannot also have the idea of  growth from Steven in age.

*Example: I draw the idea of love through Ruby and Sapphire growing throughout the show and submit it. Below I write my explanation. "My artwork reflects the theme of "growth through experiences of the idea of love" by using Ruby and Sapphire's relationship. As the show progressed we got to see how more intertwined their love was for each other and how complicated love can be. My piece demonstrates this by having Ruby and Sapphire dancing in the middle and then showing them being even closer on the sides.
I use the title "Eternal Love" to show this eternal bond that will only grow.*


WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED THE PIECE SUBMIT IT TO THE "CONTEST" FOLDER IT WILL ALSO NEED 1 VOTE TO SUBMIT PEOPLE CANNOT JUST SUBMIT RANDOM STUFF TO THIS FOLDER IT'S NOT GOING TO GO THROUGH. PLEASE TRY TO MAKE IT EASY FOR THE JUDGES TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE PIECE IS A CONTEST SUBMISSION.

Also you have to make sure that comments are enabled on the piece or else the judges will not be able to post your score and you will not be judged.

Um, I have a quick question. I can't figure out how to add a description to a journal, and I wanted to submit a fanfic. How do you add a description to a journal?

I think I'm a bit new to internet slang and fandom lingo (I only recently found out what OTP stands for), so I don't know what "canon" means when referring to a character or idea. ^^; I really like Steven Universe though and would love to join the contest if I had a better understanding of what the theme is. I'd really like a challenge to get me into drawing again. ^^

Peachie5000 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Ok, so first, canon means official. It means that if something is canon, it is proved to be true, by the author's source or by the material. For example, we know that Ruby and Sapphire loving each other is canon, since Rebecca has said this but also because in the show they've been in love.

And to explain the contest theme, the theme is asking to add onto the idea of "growing through experiences". The artwork/literature must have that, but then you want to add something to "growing through experiences" like how it grows or what grows, i.e. Love,Age,
A character. When u explain ur literature/artwork u then explain what u added onto the the theme of "growing through experiences" and how ur piece represents that.

"My piece represents the growing idea of love through the experiences that ruby and sapphire went through, by showing them dancing in the center after jail break."
"My piece represents the growth of pearl through her trials as she learns to overcome herself, thats why there is her in the center."

Oh boy the theme seems to be quite abstract and seems to require a symbolic type art piece. I've never been good at that. I'm a straight forward type thinker who is horrible at reading past black and white and therefore horrible at creating deep meaning pictures. If you say "Draw a picture of Garnet fighting Jasper", I can do that because that's straight forward. If you say "Draw a picture of Garnet growing through experiences", my mind goes ".................................." because I seriously can't think of anything. The thing is, I want to think of something original. And that can be quite challenging for me. Maybe I can think of something because I'd love to join the contest. But if I can't, I'm sorry. ^^; I think I have an idea already but I'm not sure if it fits the requirement of canon completely even if I think it fits the theme of growing. I'm so unsure of myself when it comes to abstract things. :/

Canon is like, stuff that is confirmed by the show, eg Pearl and Garnet make Sardonyx...as opposed to someone wanting Pearl and Garnet to make, lets say Onyx.

Basically nothing that is fan created or speculated ;^) 

good luck though!

It means that people can't use the contest folder as a unsorted folder, it works like all other folders where it must be approved before it gets in. Don't worry, if your piece belongs there we (the judges) will know.
