OC WINTER CONTEST - Entries Closed!

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 25, 2012, 3:17 AM



this contest is now closed for entries! I would personally like to thank everyone for their patience over the last few months! and everyone who participated for their brilliant entries and those who donated for their prize contributions! I am much appreciative! NOW IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS I WILL TAKE THE TIME To judge all the entries. please stay tuned! P.s a special prize will be given... More details later!





Hello everyone! It's that time of year when the air becomes colder and snowflakes begin to fall from the heavens, the landscape becomes covered by a blanket of white.. (depending on where you are in the world that is. :'D ) So, do you know what that calls for?! That's right an OC Winter/Yule/Christmas Contest! (I decided to launch the contest eight days ahead of schedule since the positive results on my recent polls asked for them.)


FINAL NEWS UPDATE:


We're in the final days now!  All entries must be in on the 10th of March by 12pm  PST, Los Angeles time! To know what this time converts to for you click the following: www.timeanddate.com/worldclock… :)

Having said that, I want to thank everyone for their patience.  Not long to go now! :iconmeowlaplz:


NEWS UPDATE #4:


14 Days to Go Until the Deadline! As said before this is the final deadline, no more extensions so you better get your entries finished and submitted before midnight on the 10th of March! ;)

If anyone is interested I have set up a sister chatroom for LoreithianChronicles, everyone is welcome to join and join in on the conversation. You don't have to talk about my stories! :la:  I may have a chat event there in the near future. So click the button below and join in and have fun!






NEWS UPDATE #3:
As I usually do with contests, I always ask close to the deadline if anyone needs an extension. Since I have posted polls both on my account and at LoreithianChronicles I noticed there were a quite a few of you still needing the time to submit your entry! So the deadline has been extended once again to March 10th! This is the Final Extension!

NEWS UPDATE #2:
If you are interested Loreithian Chronicles was featured and I was interviewed by mirz-alt in her Literary Compass, check it out! mirz-alt.deviantart.com/journa…

NEWS UPDATE #1:
Knowing that the holiday season is upon us all and we are usually busy at this time of year, I have extended the deadline from January 1st to February 28th! :hooray:



themes and objectives



Like my previous Unlikey Friends OC Contest the theme is very simple once again. As a lover of world crossovers, this contest again will be about that. Your characters and mine. But as the contest suggests with a winter or Christmas/Yule theme.

For example:

Northern Xmas by Morgainelefee

:snowflake: Christmas: traditionally Christmas Trees, holly, mistletoe, ivy, red amaryllis, candy canes, candles, stockings, wreaths, angels. Traditional colors like: green, white, red, blue, gold and silver and of course the giving of Gifts!

:snowflake: Winter: LOTS OF SNOW! Snowflakes, Snowmen, Icicles, Penguins, Polar Bears, the Northern Lights.

Again, the objective is simple. Choose one (or more) of my characters and pair them up with yours. Imagine a scene or situation where they would come together during the winter and/or Christmas time and illustrate that.

The purpose of this contest is to have an original, fun, witty, imaginative, magical or charming outcome. So unleash your imagination! But I also hope that it can be fun for you as well and unleash all your creativity upon. :)





My Characters




You can choose from any of my characters below, read all the information in the character sheets and inside the artist comments. Remember if you need to know any more information, feel free to ask. :aww:


OCProfile: Luciana by Endorell-Taelos OCProfile: Kaliya by Endorell-Taelos OCProfile: Lykaios by Endorell-Taelos OCProfile: Dasarine Corioth by Endorell-Taelos
OCProfile: Miya Denali by Endorell-Taelos OCProfile: Sienna Denali by Endorell-Taelos OCProfile: Jadyn Denali by Endorell-Taelos OCProfile: Raine Denali by Endorell-Taelos

Please note: Luciana has curly black hair and blue eyes, unlike what the profile shows. Please read the fine print. AND, if you do not wish to draw any of the characters here but someone else you can check out my other OC's (Such as Emmanuel, Inaiyah or Lilith) at my story group: LoreithianChronicles!


FAQ :faq: remake by arrioch (Some questions that you've made about characters and the world itself, I've answered them here as much as I could...

  • The Palace in which the Dragon Mage Royals (Luciana and her mother for example) live in is in a city, it's one of the main cities in the Loreithia continent. Surrounding the city is fields and forests and a river to one side.. It is rich in color, creams, golds, white and marble textures. The architecture is similar to that in this picture. You wouldn't find any slums or many poor people in this city. Since it is owned primarily by Dragon Mages, you can expect there is many dragons around of varying sizes as many Dragon Mages have dragon familiars like how witches have cat familiars and many dragon emblems throughout the city. The forest nearby the city isn't particularly thick or dense, you can see the light of the sun through the canopy. More Information on this question can be found in this comment thread: comments.deviantart.com/1/3303…
  • Lykaios is about five years older than Luciana.

:snowflake: LITERATURE ENTRIES :snowflake:
Walking in a winter wonderland The sound of feet crunching the snow could be heard clearly in the still night air. The moon was nearly full, and it made the ground seem to glow as it was reflected back. The figure walking alone in her dark green cloak would have been easy to spot if anyone was looking for her.
 Elreth was on the prowl for a meal, but having fed the day previous, Aylsa had decided to take a walk rather then join him. She enjoyed being close to nature, and having the freedom to do as she chose, rather then waht her maker wanted all the time.
 She had been walking for about half an hour when she stopped suddenly. Pushing her hood back, she blinked incredulously. There, not twenty feet from her, stood an evergreen, covered from top to bottom with small, shiny, multicolored balls. Wrapped around the tree was some sort of flimsy rope, in gold and silver.
 Slowly, she approached the tree, and carefully reached out to one of the balls. Upon touching it, it moved and jingled, and the jum
Ice Cold Heart - Part 1“C’mon, Lykaios, hurry!”
The young man looked at his sister and rolled his eyes. “It’s not like they’re going to leave without us, you know.”
Luciana giggled and pulled on her brother’s arm. She couldn’t help it, she was excited. When she had first come to Gale City years earlier, she had seen airplanes up in the sky and had read about them in storybooks. They fascinated her and she had always wanted to ride in one, but never had the chance. That was about to change.
Lykaios stared through the window at the small jet sitting out on the air field and frowned. “I don’t know about that thing. It doesn’t look safe. I’d far rather travel on a dragon or griffin.”
A slender hand fell on the prince’s shoulder. “I’ve ridden on a griffin before. Trust me, this is much more comfortable.” Sara moved away from the man, dropping her duffel bag onto a nearby chair.

A quick note. For some reason, the "a" got left off of the name "Luciana" in the last half of part 1. Must have been a wonky spell-check. I fixed all of those.

How does any of your OCs know each other? like for instance, if they grew up together or just eventually met each other etc.
Reply
:iconendorell-taelos:
Endorell-Taelos Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013   General Artist
For example... Emmanuel, Kaliya, Lykaios and Luciana all know each other as they are in the same family. Raine, Jadyn, Sienna and Miya also know each other as they are in the same family. But not all of them are directly involved with each other.

Ok.

Is Luciana and Lykaios are still sticking around with each other, or are they separated and on their own journey?

Depends on which part of the story. xD If anything they would stick together as much as possible.
