Art Contest #4 - Mistress Arianna (and Customer)

Alright….time for the Fourth Art Contest…scaling things back a bit to see if this works better as far as entries.

This contest only requires a single pic – although more are always appreciated.  The theme is my original character Mistress Arianna la Tartana and her boutique “La De Baucherie Magique”. 

You’ve seen her in several different looks and in different settings so far (with more on the way) – so the idea is this.  Simply Mistress Arianna interacting with a customer – with a process theme – is the merchandise acting not as expected, better than expected, something totally out of the blue…etc.  Additionally, while we’ve seen her in two different settings so far, it stands to reason that La De Baucherie Magique has opened a few other branches in different times and places over the years – so let’s see a little variety in shop design and location as well.  I’ll admit I don’t have a real “set-in-stone” look for Mistress Arianna yet (I’ve been exploring flexible looks changing with the setting/scenario), but maybe with some of these contest entries we can come to a better consensus ;p

Any kind of process is accepted here – tg, tf, in-animate, AR, AP, expansions, etc.

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 15 Mar.  On 16 Mar, I’ll announce three winners – First prize $75, second prize $50, third prize $25 – cash prize from me to you via paypal.  As with the first contest, it’ll be followed by open voting for a week on all the submitted sequences and the audience favorite – regardless of whether it already won a prize – will win an additional cash prize of $25.  

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. 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.  But some form of process must be shown.  Ordinary pictures with captions will not be accepted.

4. All submissions include the following information (which will also be posted with the picture): artist name, medium(s), scenario (if applicable), pic title (optional, but appreciated) – 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 entries 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.

Have at it!
