Are you sure? Ornery said it CAN be shown, but they'd PREFER if it stayed hidden.

Agreed though, it would be a trillion times more fun if everyone would keep it secret until the end.

That's WIPs for the final pieces, though. Not WIPs for the sketches.

Yeah, this is one of those instances where if you pull a tl:dr, you'll be screwing yourself over.
Take the time to read the whole thing thoroughly folks.

Yeah I guess i could have been clearer there, the sketches are supposed to remain out of sight until the final piece is submited (obviously your partner will see them sooner though) the WIP comment was intended towards the final pieces.
Frankly im suprised that some of you are starting the sketches now before partners are even picked. While technically you dont need to know who your partner is to do the sketch, it might sway your direction if you know your partner tends to work well with certain styles and subject matters (or you can be a dick and give them something they arent used to.)

Also sketches are sketches, they dont have to be elaborate masterpieces with color, backgrounds and polished lines. You should only spend about 15-30 minutes on them (more time spent on the idea though obviously).

Do I post it here or just in the art portal?

Because they were EXAMPLES and if you READ THE RULES and INFORMATION PROVIDED you'd know that much.
yeah well I know that now GENIUS we get it you're SASSY I can use CAPS too. get over yourself
y'know, it took this GENIUS to direct you to the rules, not my fault you weren't smart enough nor had common sense/ a little bit of time to read 3 paragraphs to inform yourself (otherwise you wouldn't have had this problem) , NOPE! that's too much brainpower for you it seems!

That's odd, I thought were doing this for fun, not to get all bitchy at each other for not understanding something.

As said, the original first sketches are not really supposed to be seen until your partner finished the final piece, so I suggest waiting for you to get a partner appointed to you, then uploading the sketch in your dumping grounds and providing your partner with a link to your specific sketch so he/she can download it.

If someone doesn't understand how this all works, they shouldn't be afraid to ask questions here. Users giving others a hard time for not 'getting it' will be (and have been) banned. Let's try to keep this fun and ditch the pissy attitudes, mmkay.

Gotta say... it's really exciting to see so many people signing up for this!! Hopefully everyone sees it through and we end up with a ton of awesome finished pics!!

Partners will be announced soon so I think this is a good time to go over a few things before stuff really gets rolling.

===HOW PIECES WILL BE JUDGED===
Creativity will have the most sway in this contest. You will be judged mostly on the originality and creativity of your final piece. You sketch will also be taken into account, but more as bonus points. Of course technical skill will help, but its not crucial in this contest.
The best piece will most likely be knock your socks off creative with what it did with the sketch provided, have decent technical skill, and really use the appropriate style needed to get the point and purpose of the source sketch across. The artist will also have provided his partner with a super creative sketch to work with.
The best pair will be the guys who both had really original ideas for their sketches, got everything in on time, had nice final pieces and just really flowed together and didn't seem like they were fighting each other or trying to coddle or beat up each other. Gave each other a nice solid challenge without out being douche-waffles.

You don't need to necessarily do a straight up copy of your partners sketch. You can choose to make a final piece that looks pretty much like a cleaned up pretty version of the sketch, or something that just uses key elements and ideas of the sketch while changing the composition completely.

===THINGS YOU SHOULD DO===
1. Finish your sketch in time, dont shaft your partner, its a dick thing to do.
2. Final pieces should have the reference sketch (your partner's) visible somewhere in the piece (see the two starter pics in the finals thread for examples.)
3. Be creative, we cant stress this enough.

===THINGS THAT YOU SHOULDNT DO===
1.Any fan art of any sort will pretty much guarantee a loss, and possible disqualification.
"But what if my partner gives me a sketch with fan art?"
if your partner is pathetic enough to give you mlp or madness or something in the sketch, then just use the figure as just that, a figure. MLP can just symbolize "horse" and hank from madness can be turned around to be "some sort of human figure" DONT fall into the stupid trap of fan art just because your partner was a twat.
2. Again failing to check in in time will result in disqualification.
3. Dont post your sketch where the public can see it, wait for it to get seen in the final piece that your partner submits.
4. Leaving out major crucial elements of your partners sketch in the final piece. The final should be recognizable as being somewhat based on the sketch provided.

Lintire and Aigis will be cool too. But I'm looking forward to Carrion and Zane most. Lots of interesting pairings. This will be great!
