Art Contest #5 - Best in Show 2012

Art Contest #5: 

A new art contest for the (upcoming) new year.  Been a while since the last one, but I think this sort of thing supports my posting schedule a little better than some other ideas.

The theme here is “Best in Show”.  That is to say, I’d like to see before and after pics of dog-women (at least 2 pics).  I know I’ve enjoyed (and will continue to enjoy) commissioning poodle-girls, but let’s see some other breeds of dog-girl (not saying poodle-girls won’t be accepted).  Try and work some thematic elements either similarities between the woman’s outfit/hairstyle and the breed she becomes or swapping with her pet, or something similar.  Also looking at options for boss switching “positions” with secretary, etc.  Sequences longer than 2 pics are definitely accepted.  The woman should wind up at least 25% dog by the end (ie. ears, paws, tail, fur, etc) – but anything beyond that is acceptable as long as at least the face is mostly human.

You don’t necessarily need 2 characters in the pics if it works thematically, but you don’t normally allow pets outside (out of the yard) by themselves, so let’s keep it “realistic”.

The best design/look will win the blue ribbon for “Best in Show 2012”.

I fully encourage you to share this challenge with other friends and artists you may know who don’t regularly read this site.  Any artist I have previously commissioned from – even the same subject matter – is welcome to compete, but the submission must be a new piece.

All entries must be submitted by midnight 14 February (or thereabouts – subject to change – depending on internet access – I will hopefully have dates tighter before then).  As soon as possible after the deadline, I’ll announce three winners – First prize $100, second prize $75, third prize $50 – cash prize from me to you via paypal.  We’ll have an audience vote after this contest too, but no monetary prize this time. 
Now the hard and fast rules (no real changes here):

1. All work must be the original work of the person submitting it.  No exceptions.

2. Sequences must be at least 2 pictures long.  There is no upper limit to the number of pictures and additional consideration will extended for additional effort.

3. Any medium is accepted – pencils, ink, paint, digital art, CGI renders, photomorphs, etc – or any combination of mediums.

4. All submissions include the following information (which will also be posted with the picture): artist name, medium(s), scenario (if applicable), sequence title (optional) – and any other additional information you think is relevant.

5. Subjects must be adults – at least 18 – NO exceptions!

6. Any artist may submit as many sequences as they wish.

7. Unlimited revisions are allowed during the submission period.

8. No copyrighted characters are permitted (unless they're your own characters). This means no anime, videogame, movie, comic/manga characters, etc. 

9.  By entering a submission, you are automatically giving permission for me to post it on the site clearly labeled and identified as an art contest entry – and although I would prefer to avoid it, if the artist wishes to remain anonymous, I am amenable to posting their entries in that fashion.

10.  Submissions should be addressed to me: thrandrall[at] – subject line should contain the artist’s name and that it is intended as a submission for the Art Contest.  Also, if you have another gallery or site you would like me to link to, please include it as it significantly improves my artist tracking ;p

Additional Guidance:
a. Upper body nudity is permitted but should not be excessive. Lower body nudity should be conservative (no fluids and most definitely NO FUTA).  Sexual activity is right out. (This is a great opportunity to try out some new poses or stances).

b. Constructive criticism by others is encouraged in the comments section, but *should* be accompanied by suggestions on how issues might be addressed, improved, etc.

c.  As always, references to other Transformation Repository characters, locations, etc – are welcome ;p

Have at it!
