Birthday Bash Contest Details!
I said in our big birthday post that i’d provide more details about the birthday event in another post, so here it is!
-Fanart Contest: The objective here is to draw a piece of art depicting your favorite Kinzart avatar, moment, mod, ect, as long as it features something Kinzart related!
Da Rulez: Images must be created by you, and can contain stock imagery as long as it follows the guidelines set by the stock artists and does not conflict with our legal disclaimer(see below).
Entries must be PG-15. Please no visible naughty bits such as lady parts, guy parts.
Entries do not have to be new, so you are welcome to submit artwork you’ve drawn before!
Prizes: First place will walk away with 10,000L in hard cash and their choice of 3 Free avatars!*
Runner up will go home with 5,000L and a free avatar of their choice!*
Honorable Mentions/Judges choice will get a free avatar of their choice!*
* - Limited to avatars sold permanently. Retired and Limited Edition avatars not applicable.
Submit your art entries to us via this handy Google doc: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1jDNrO_AHGFjbVLgyS3XNYQP45y4_WvmcKD60V9f8mwU/viewform
-Creature Design Contest: Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to design a fantastic creature that we will meticulously turn into a fully featured anthropomorphic avatar!
Da Rulez: Designs must be entirely of your own creation. Entries clearly using someone else’ designs will be disqualified. Drawn reference sheets including a 3/4 front view, a 3/4 back view, and focus shots of critical/small details is recommended, but not required. If submitting a textual description, please be thorough.
Entries must be bipedal in design, No quadrupedal designs please. Partial mesh is preferred, so that we can continue to use the default Second Life system body but rigged/full mesh is Okay.
The creator of the winning design will receive 10%** of all sales of the resulting avatar based on their design from the date of release til the end of time. Additionally they will receive a special one of a kind version of the final avatar(and friends if they desire.) The creator will also be given access to Arcaniss so that they can contribute their feedback during the design process as well as given regular updates on progress.
**This percentage was derived from market research pertaining to royalties for licensed character and creature designs. We feel this is a fair value for your artistic input and contributions.

And now for some very important legal stuff:
Fanart contest: Entering the fanart contest means you grant Kinzart permission to repost, resize, crop, scale, or otherwise edit the artwork for promotional purposes. We will not use your art to gain any sort of financial gain and you will retain ownership of the image and character(s) depicted within. This is just so that we can safely repost your image without stepping on toes.
Creature design contest: Entering the creature design contest means you grant Kinzart permission to repost, resize, crop, scale, or otherwise edit the artwork for promotional purposes. The winner grants Kinzart permission to produce, reproduce, distribute, and profit from their concepts designed for the purposes of this competition. We may also make minor tweaks to the design for the sake of making it mesh better with Kinzart’s style and aesthetic without deviating from the original concept too far.This basically just means that if you draw us something and its selected as the winning design, it means you agree to us making it and making money off it. Additionally, you also retain the rights to your species, to do with as you please. After all you designed it. We’re just making it into an avatar.
If you are not Okay with these terms, we ask that you please refrain from entering these contests. Entry otherwise means implied acceptance.
Judging/Selecting the winners:
You will have until July 31st at 11:59 PM SLT to submit your entries for both the Fanart Contest and the Creature design contest. That means a full month of time for you to create and develop your art and designs. After that, we’ll stop accepting entries and go through the phase of selecting the winners.
The winners of the fanart contest will be selected based on a few criteria including the ‘people’s choice’, but rather than be tied down by ‘requirements’, we’d rather you just have fun with it and draw whatever you’d like as long as it follows the rules! additionally we’ll select a few ‘Judges favorites’ for Honorable Mentions.
A winner of the creature contest will be selected based on the strength of their design and their attention to anatomy and lore, as well as how readily it can be converted into a 3D model for the use within the Second Life engine.
With all that out of the way, we look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!
I’m entering the creature design contest. And I already have one sketched up. It’s gonna be fun and I hope I win!
I was bored so I did a bunch of random sketches… then it ended up being giftart to everyone that seemed to be having a bad day…. or just needed attention. Also, Erika, I just drew Sin because I was curious how she looked in my style. Since you don’t have much of a ref up, I had to guess things. Rofl. Thanks guys for being awesome. <3
Also, that first one is what happened to my noodle dragon… »
my second tarantula is most likely going to die tonight
i raised him from a baby and he’s been MM for 7 months.
i just found him in a semi death curl and he lost a leg for no reason.
i’m glad i was able to raise a tarantula through their full life cycle but it sucks
This is a photo of the man in Moncton, NB, Canada who is currently at large. His name is Justin Bourque and he is extremely dangerous. This is what he was photographed in today. If you live in the Moncton area or know of someone who lives there, tell them to lock their doors and to leave their porch light on (the RCMP is requesting people do this). He has killed 3 RCMP and injured 2 already. Please be safe.
