Contest 009 - Design Shirocchi and Kurocchi!  
Welcome to our last "Design" contest! Wow, I didn't think we'd get this far! We already have our 8 Colors characters. Now, we just need to welcome their pets! That's right, this is a contest to design Colors's mascots!

After Gin-sensei returned from his most recent expedition, he brought along two strange creatures, one that was pure white and one that was pure black. He named them Shirocchi and Kurocchi respectively for their colors, though they also had strange markings, so I guess we can't say they're pure white or black? Anyway...

Your task is to design both Shirocchi and Kurocchi together in one image! 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 Shirocchi and Kurocchi. 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 Shirocchi and Kurocchi!

Shirocchi's appearance
♪ Shirocchi must be predominantly white.
♪ Shirocchi must have long ears, whiskers, and a fluffy tail.
♪ Shirocchi must wear anklets.
♪ Shirocchi must have markings on its face and chest.

Kurocchi's appearance
♪ Kurocchi must be predominantly black.
♪ Kurocchi must have pointy ears, horns, and a pair of wings.
♪ Kurocchi must have a bell somewhere (an actual, physical, bell!).
♪ Kurocchi must have markings on its back and/or lower body.

It is up to you if you wish to dress them up in clothes or not. *g* They should be non-human though! Mascots please!

Other guidelines
♪ Your art must feature Shirocchi and Kurocchi in the same pic, and they must both be completely visible! (meaning, no part of them should be cut off in the pic, but it's fine if either of them partly covers the other)
♪ Shirocchi and Kurocchi must be mascot-type characters. Not humans!
♪ 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 with other designs. I will only take one submission. You are free to include other views of the characters, 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 Shirocchi and Kurocchi 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 April 22 at Noon, 12 PM PST time (GMT -8).
♪ TCG players who've won more than one contest may not enter again~, but everyone else is free to enter! <3

.....h..horns?!! ;v; kurochhi sounds cute in my head....

/gets to drawing...
lucathialucathia_rykatu on March 23rd, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
Shirocchi seems to be a lot softer in feeling while Kurocchi is all... angles? XD; Though maybe Kurocchi's wings won't turn out so harsh~. They could be cute wings. XD; I look forward to what you come up with for these guidelines. :3

cute and fluffy goats! /shot! /facepalm

ide? I just like cute little demon goats;;; I think One Piece does this to me...all those weird animals o___o`

I'm just mainly worried I can't draw animals well at all :/ I get so frustrated;;;;
lucathia: fishbones: pinklucathia_rykatu on March 23rd, 2011 01:34 am (UTC)
I did not even think of goats, lol. shhh, don't give yourself away

I cannot draw animals. I hope all of you are much better at it than me. |D
orechibisamaorechibisama on March 23rd, 2011 01:56 am (UTC)
I prolly won't draw goats! maybe sheep? hurrdurr;;;

Neither can I.... ;n; I hope so too!

whiskers can be interpreted right? ....mustache, beard are still...whiskers? or... lol;;
lucathialucathia_rykatu on March 23rd, 2011 03:32 am (UTC)
Sheep? Same difference. =P

I suppose...
orechibisamaorechibisama on March 23rd, 2011 03:38 am (UTC)
haha. Yeah XD ♥

:/a I didn't like how my ideas turned out...so i'll just go with something else...

Goats were the first thing I thought of when I was thinking of horns and a bell, but then I remembered the wings requirement... D:
lucathia: fishbones: ringlucathia_rykatu on March 23rd, 2011 11:58 pm (UTC)
Oh, I didn't even put the horns and the bell together. I see how a goat might be the first thing people think of because of those requirements. :O
Allmia: Salamencejessiss on March 23rd, 2011 01:36 am (UTC)
I'm better at animals than people. Not much but... XD
Time to start thinking of designs! *rolls*
lucathia: fishbones: redlucathia_rykatu on March 23rd, 2011 01:38 am (UTC)

*imagines Allmia rolling down the street* er, wrong image?
Allmia: Zekromjessiss on March 23rd, 2011 01:43 am (UTC)
XD With my luck I'd end up hitting a truck at some point!

Time to bust out the tablet!! :3

Rachel ♥kikinioth on March 23rd, 2011 09:52 am (UTC)
So excited for this one *__*!!

Can Kurocchi only have two wings, or like could it have multiple pairs? Does Shirocchi need to have anklets on all of its legs? And their markings are allowed to be actual colors, right? :D?
lucathialucathia_rykatu on March 23rd, 2011 11:58 pm (UTC)
Any number of wings is fine. XD; Any number of anklets too! And the markings can be different colors. :3

Ooh, I'm happy about these requirements! I sketched out some ideas a while back, but I didn't make them too detailed to avoid having to change too much later. I should be able to work with this, though!

Mmm I love designing cute animals, haha XD I wonder what all the other submissions are going to look like!
lucathia: fishbones: green backgroundlucathia_rykatu on March 24th, 2011 12:00 am (UTC)
Oh yay~. :D It was a bit harder for me to come up with requirements for these two. XD; I'm sure we'll get very unique designs. :3
eri☆tan; the magical glameow ♪: mspa☆ -EXCITED!!vriska on March 24th, 2011 01:32 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm hoping to see a lot of different types of characters! I like how they're both going to look very unique, with the different ear styles and everything.

I'm pretty psyched about this contest, though I'm also sad that it's going to be the last one. D: Do you have any ideas for contests after this?
lucathia: fishbones: pinklucathia_rykatu on March 24th, 2011 02:19 am (UTC)
I'm very tempted to doodle something myself, though I have no handle on animals at all. XD

Hm~, I have received suggestions about minor characters or "relatives". But I don't know if we should branch out that much. XD; Spicy Pink!!! Perhaps we could have a dress up contest with one of the characters, or other themed contests with them.
nepeta leijon! :33: ★ in my dream i am the god-tierrawrplay on March 24th, 2011 03:56 am (UTC)
(Don't mind me, this is still Eri XD)

I don't really either, so I'm worried that my designs are going to look too much like typical anime mascots... then again, I think that would be better than them looking too much like real animals!

Spicy Pink XD Haha! I kind of agree with you, though, we don't want to have too many characters... there's already a lot! Dressup contests sound fun, though! I kind of want to draw some fanart of Skie's fanfics, anyway...

Oh, I do have one question for you! Does Kurocchi's bell have to be designed specifically, or can it be any type of bell? Like, say, jingle bells?
lucathialucathia_rykatu on March 24th, 2011 04:26 am (UTC)
Hi Eri! :D

Typical anime mascots would be cute. :D

Ooo, fanart of Skie's fanfics would be so awesome.

Any type of bell is fine! :3
