Submission requirements

Submission requirements:

• We do not accept photography, photo manipulations or most forms of computer rendering, like G-mods.
• Pictures need to be of quality. We try to be generous when judging these things, but what we look for is effort. If it looks like the person put real effort into the work, that’s usually enough.
• A key thing to remember that the group is Badass CHARACTERS! In this case, a character is an intelligent, tool user capable of manifesting some personality. Overwhelmingly, we prefer that some sort of humanoid be in the picture.
• Something has to be badass about the picture itself. If it’s not self-evident then it’s not badass enough.
What is Badass?
The state of being badass can be a little hard to define. If you’re wondering whether or not a given picture is badass, first look through our gallery. Failing that, here are some hints…
• Does it make you want to say “THAT’S TOTALLY BADASS?”
• Is it METAL? Does it look like it came striding out of a heavy metal ballad?
• Does it look like it’ll kick YOUR ass? Normally this means through physical force, but definitely isn’t limited to it?
• Is it of a picture of someone who had proven their badassery, in real life or fiction? Teddy Roosevelt and Conan the Barbarian both would be suitable.
• Does it feel epic? Does it feel gritty?
Badass is a state of mind ultimately. It’s a refusal to take shit. It’s the force of will to make opposition fall aside.

Which image should be promoted to BADASS of the BADASS folder?!

"UPDATE" We now allow game characters.

Sup BADASS! :iconbadassplz:
This contest is all about redesign a futuristic character back to the stone age!

1. Must be from an established movie, game or television franchise. That franchise can be based on a another medium, such as books or comics.

2. The franchise must be futuristic and high tech (space opera, cyber punk, etc) or the character be known for using futuristic and high tech devices (Iron Man, Batman, etc).

3. The goal is take a character from that franchise and place them into a prehistoric setting. It's an alternate character design to emphasize the primitive, savage and barbaric. The tech level should be very low, though some metal weapons might be allowed.

What we are looking for is these factors.
1. The character must be recognizable.
2. We are looking for creativity. James T. Kirk wearing a Tarzan-loincloth and holding a knife fits the criteria but it's not terrible original or interesting.
3. For the most part, think Stone Age or so tech. Because we know barbarians are popular, we can over look some metal weapons, but that's about it.

-Has to be badass!
-Has to follow the theme of the contest.
-Sketches or low quality are not allowed.
-It has to be a new drawing, not an old one from your gallery.
-Max three submissions per participant (You are able to win more then one prize).

Third Place:
3 months of premium-Ship! :happybounce:
Second Place!:
6 months of Premium-Ship! :hooray:
First Place:
ONE YEAR PREMIUM-SHIP on DeviantArt! :faint:
Winner will also have it's image visible on our home page for like... forever! (at least a year and probably longer)

DEADLINE: 02-06/2014 "day-month/year"
SUBMIT HERE: "badass-characters.deviantart.c…"

PS: You need to be a member of :iconbadass-characters: to be able to submit! So don't forget to apply!
