Contest 008 - Design Gin-sensei!  
Our last character is Gin-sensei! :D The -sensei suffix is used with teachers, doctors, professors, and other professionals or figures of authority. It can also be used to show respect to someone who has mastered some sort of art form or skill. Accomplished novelists, musicians, artists, etc, can also be addressed as sensei~. I look forward to seeing what kind of sensei you might design. "Gin", by the way, means silver. I apologize if the appearance requirements below force you to settle on certain types of sensei... that is not my intention. :')

After submissions close, voting will be open for 1 week. I will have entries up in one post where people can place their vote. The submission with the most votes will become our official "Gin-sensei." You must allow your art to be used in the TCG in graphics such as banners, icons, and cards. Be prepared to have your art featured as the model for future pics of Gin-sensei!

Gin-sensei's appearance
♥ Gin-sensei's hair must be silver and Gin-sensei must wear predominantly silver.
♥ Gin-sensei must wear glasses, a necktie, and dress shoes.
♥ Gin-sensei must wear a lab coat.
♥ Gin-sensei must wear or have chains.

(For the first requirement, white to black is OK for clothes, but please have some gray/silver too!)

Other guidelines
♥ Your art must feature Gin-sensei from head to toe.
♥ Your art must be original and drawn by you!
♥ Drawings must be at least 600px wide and saved as a gif/png/jpg file. I will resize your image for voting, but I will also link your original and any extras you wish to include.
♥ Only one submission is allowed per member. Please do not send me variations. I will only take one submission. You are free to include other views of the character, but I will only display one view in the voting post. I will link the rest.
♥ Send your submissions in by email to rykatu[at]yahoo[dot]com as an attachment. Make sure to label the subject of the email with "Colors TCG Gin-sensei submission - your name". Please include the name you use in the TCG since not all emails match up with names.
♥ Please do not post your art elsewhere until voting ends.
♥ The deadline is March 15 at Noon, 12 PM PST time (GMT -8).

Some new clarifications since I get these kind of questions a lot~
- Gin-sensei must be human or at least appear human (no mascots please).
- Gin-sensei can be any gender.
- If you've won one contest before, you may still enter. If you've won twice like Karu, you'll have to sit this one out. :') Karu, you are just too awesome. =P

After this one, we will have one more contest for a mascot type character who will be Gin-sensei's pet. :) (So please do not include any animals with Gin-sensei at the moment!)

I hope to see lots of submissions for our last human character!

If it's still the same email, I can tell that one's from you. XD
orechibisamaorechibisama on February 16th, 2011 03:31 am (UTC)
XDD Stilll. I'm not doing things properly e_e!!

I'll have to restart my computer to draw Gin-sensei. I think i might do that tomorrow;;;; XD idk I wanna draw now;;
lucathia: fishbones: redlucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 03:37 am (UTC)
This emoticon is so amusing... e_e What kind of expression is it? A lidded one? :3 Or an eye roll?

I should've restarted my computer after I installed a program. Hours later, I still haven't restarted my computer. XDD;;

I look forward to your Gin-sensei!
orechibisamaorechibisama on February 16th, 2011 03:42 am (UTC)
Actually! I don't honestly know e_e!! I ...thi-nope don't know. but I do like using it! eue!

Oh. I just hate restarting it, because my computer sometimes throws bitch fit and gets stuck on the logging off page. so i have to force it to restart then it goes through that whole, the computer didn't shut down properly how would you like to restart. and then throws a we have to have to check the consistency of your disc drive BRB this will take 40 minutes! TROLOLOL... >8( I do not like waiting.

o7 Roger! eue I want to win....butidkifieverwill
lucathialucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 03:54 am (UTC)
It looks very funny. And expressive. :3 I like it.

Ah, mine I have to watch while it turns on, or else it does something weird. Thankfully it still shuts down properly.

I always like your designs, especially Mikan-tan and Kou-kun! If you still remember what they look like. XD;
orechibisamaorechibisama on February 16th, 2011 05:54 am (UTC)
e ue I love it;;; XD

Computers are just like... sfdgsd sometimes D8<

Thanks! I remember. I really loved my Midorin personally ;v;` I might just have to change her appearance a bit to fit my story;;

eye color is up for grabs right? XD;
lucathialucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)
Your Midorin could be a dancer. Her pose was awesome. XD;

Yup, eye color can be anything~
orechibisamaorechibisama on February 16th, 2011 06:00 am (UTC)
:) yeah!

Okay good! XD;
the awesome oneoresame on February 16th, 2011 03:27 am (UTC)
Twice is too much already lol, so definitely sitting this out. have to go back to drawing the characters that already exist, anyways XD

Gin-sensei sounds very classy~ Glasses, necktie, and lab coat? Hrrrrnn. Looking forward to see the turnout for this one
lucathia: fishbones: ringlucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 03:34 am (UTC)
I look forward to more drawings of the current characters! I started on an Akai-san deck. We're almost there!! Almost have enough. I hope Kou-kun has enough art soon too. :3

Very classy... until the chains! XD;

orechibisamaorechibisama on February 16th, 2011 05:50 am (UTC)
oh oh. just the glasses. XD Sorry. I just found it amusing XD;;
lucathialucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)
Oh, the glasses. XD; of course glasses had to be a requirement for someone!! I was more thinking about the labcoat. XD Because that kind of narrows things down!
orechibisama: 【Quilava】orechibisama on February 16th, 2011 06:01 am (UTC)
Scientist, doctors. weird people /rubs chin...Science teachers.

lucathia: fishbones: pinklucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 06:16 am (UTC)
Ooo, science teachers. I didn't even think of that. XD
orechibisamaorechibisama on February 16th, 2011 06:20 am (UTC)
i don't what my gin-sensei wll be....maybe...a..clumsy....doctor? XD

This guy is bound to be interesting. I wonder how everyone will decided to use the chains requirement... ^^
lucathia: fishbones: ringlucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 04:30 am (UTC)
I wonder about the chains! :3
⌈Mnemosyne Quintess⌋: TotA ★ siiiighkidalana on February 16th, 2011 04:33 am (UTC)
So many different possibilities. I wonder which will be the most popular...

Gosh. Now I've got myself anxious for the deadline. xD
moon_wolfmoon_wolfwriter on February 16th, 2011 05:12 am (UTC)
I'm kinda amused. I started a sketch of a head for a possible Gin this morning just for fun and I think he'll fit the requirements perfectly. I knew that glasses would be a requirement before we finished off the human characters. Now I just need to work on a body ^-^

I'm going to miss these contests.
lucathia: fishbones: pinklucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 05:21 am (UTC)
How amusing!! XD I had plans to include glasses somewhere, but by the time I thought to have it as one of the requirements, there weren't too many characters left, and it didn't seem to fit Tobi-han! So Gin-sensei it was for our megane character. Kind of cliché, I suppose, to have the "sensei" character wear glasses. XD; I look forward to yours~ :D

I'll miss them too! I'll start other contests to keep our contests going, but they probably won't be designing contests. :')

I am going to draw something gorgeous for this hopefully
lucathialucathia_rykatu on February 16th, 2011 06:17 am (UTC)
Oo, gorgeousness. :DDDD
Allmia: Hana Yori Dangojessiss on March 4th, 2011 03:18 am (UTC)
Do you mind chibis? Really the only thing I can draw but I can put enough detail on it for a basic idea of his appearance. Also, can he be part animal? Cat/fox ears, tails, etc. I have a good idea of his appearance if I can do that. I know it's a rather late time to ask. haha. Thanks~
lucathialucathia_rykatu on March 4th, 2011 08:10 am (UTC)
Chibis are fine! Gin-sensei can be part animal, yes.
Allmia: Jessicajessiss on March 4th, 2011 08:12 am (UTC)
Ok, cool! :D
