Submission requirements

Submission requirements:

• We do not accept photography, photo manipulations or 3D rendering, like G-mods for a example.
• 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?!

Hello artists who love Badasses! :iconbadassplz:
We've got a new contest for you!

The important thing is that it's about badasses consuming food or drink in a suitably awesome way.
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.

There's a lot of ways to do this. Possible ingredients include...

-Food or drink that is badass in nature. Fearsome beasts that tried to eat you first, or alcoholic drinks powerful enough to melt your bones.
-A badass character consuming the food or drink. Boozing it up while standing on top of defeated foes, drinking a flaming drink. shoving an entire roast boar down his mouth.
-A badass forcing a non-badass to eat something he doesn't want to. You WILL like green eggs and ham!

Any combination of the above or something different, those where what came to our minds.

Extra info:
-In case it's not obvious, MAKE IT BADASS!
-It has to be a new drawing, created for this contest.
-No limit on 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)
