:la: ...and the contest is closed! Thanks everyone for the entries, judging will commence now. :D



:meganoes: by rastafarianpilgrim Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the communityrelations sponsored deviantART Related Collaborations Contest :happybounce: Where you have six weeks to work together on any work in the dA related category. A quick overview;

  • This contest will be open to all mediums in the deviantART Related main category, as well as dA tutorials and dA avatars.
  • It will run from today (3rd April) to May 15 2012. Your entry must be submitted between (or on) those dates!
  • You can participate in three ways (see the bottom of this article for examples);
    • Work on your own based on an existing dA related deviation (with their permission if needed; e.g. find a visual suggestion and make a browser script to make it work).
    • Collaborate with another artist on a piece in one medium (e.g. make a stamp or devID together.)
    • Work together to create two related deviations (e.g. a gallery skin design, and the coded version).
  • Once you have your entry/entries finished, please send me a note with links/thumbs of your deviation!
  • Not sure whom to work together with? Feel free to leave a comment on this journal (and of course see the existing comments!) to find a collaboration partner. If you can't find someone, there's always the option to work based on an existing piece.
  • You can enter more than once, but only win once.

:winner: The Prizes :winner:


One main pair of winners will be chosen to both receive a 12 month deviantART Premium Membership from Moonbeam13! :la:

We will also choose two runner-up pairs, and both members of both pairs will all receive a 3 month Premium Membership from Moonbeam13

We'll also throw in some extra points:points: if we decide there's enough awesome to have honourable mentions too :eyes: Winners, runner ups and honourable mentions (if any) will also receive journal features by me on these groups, and various other Community Volunteers, other deviants and groups. If you win, Premium Memberships can be given in points or to another deviant if preferred (if so please mention this in your submission note).

:eager: Some tips! :eager:


  • If you're not sure what some of the dA related galleries are, you can check in this article: The dA Related Categories which contains information and examples of all the sub categories.
  • Besides the quality of the artwork, the judges will also look at its relevance to the dA related category and the rate of collaboration (i.e. does it look like you split the roles well etc.)
  • Before sending me the submission note, make sure that both pieces have been finished and submitted, to the deviantART Related category (or if it's a tutorial, in Stock & Resources / Tutorials / deviantART tutorials, and if it's an avatar in Customization > Icons > Avatars > deviantART) and that the deadline hasn't passed yet. Also if you'd like to donate the premium membership to someone else or if you want points instead, make sure you mention this.
  • If you have any questions I'll gladly help you with them :D
  • :dummy: Most importantly, have fun!

:la: I'm excited to see what you'll come up with.

:idea: Some Examples :idea:

Confused about how you can work together? Here's a few examples so you can see what I mean :D

Pretty much all submissions were amazing, so though they sadly cannot all win, I'm definitely considering doing something like that yes :plotting:

No, just kidding (although that would be fantastic)^^
It would be nice to have a list of all participating deviations, though, but don't put too much effort into it^^
Judgment is the main thing about it at the moment.

Definitely. Were there many entries? Will you be showcasing them all? I missed out on particpating because of computer issues. Power supply not supplying power....

There were about 20! Which is an awesome amount, considering the amount of effort and interaction that preceded each entry. :D

Yes! Wow, that means 40 people total, right? I had two people who wanted to work with me. I'm disappointed to not have participated.

Some people participated twice, and some worked on their own based on someone elses deviation so if you don't count the creator of the original deviation (say if they're unaware of it:P) it's probably about 30 ^^

Yes, I had two people I was going to work with. One entered another form. I still want to collab with both of them some time. I admire both of their styles. I also wanted to do a collab with my bf for a deviantID. I wanted to have us take a picture of each other. Then each draw half of the picture. Like I would do half his face, then he the other half as his ID. Then half and half for my ID. To showcase the contrasting styles of our art. His is very angular and sharp precise lines. Mine is very imprecise and soft. My realism style is shaded without drawing lines, instead, only shadows. His is with lines and blended without smudging paper, just using pencil control. I smudge!
