Speaking to Snakes Contest

Journal Entry: Tue May 15, 2007, 10:02 AM
  • Listening to: Jenny Owen Youngs
  • Reading: Don't You Forget About Me -Cecily vonZiegesar

  • Eating: Cereal
  • Drinking: Water



Results/winners will be announced sometime in the next week.
Judges, check your inboxes, I'll be sending you scoring guides so we can get this baby judged.

I am so excited about this contest, I can't believe how successful it's been. 61 entries! Wow! :aww:

*Also, I've added a new judge. I didn't think three were enough with the amount of entries I now have to look over.


So PersephoneStock and I did a contest not too long ago, and we were so pleasantly surprised; it was a big success! After it ended, we put our heads together and tried to come up with something new and exciting, but finally we both just decided that we wanted to do our own contests first. But I'm sure we'll team up again soon.

Anyway, this is a little contest that I want to try out on my own. The theme is..... snakes!

Here is the scoop: I am in a band called "The Parselmouths", which for those non-Harry Potter fans out there means someone who can talk to snakes.  So the premise of the band (which yes, is also Harry Potter themed) is that we're not only slightly naughty Slytherin students, but we can also speak the language of the snake. If you're at all interested, you can check it out here:… :aww:

This inspired me to see what that would actually look like. This is where you come in.

The contest is simple. Make a deviation (using my stock at least once) that includes me talking to a snake. Or at least has a snake in it in some way.

Even though snakes are generally kind of dark and scary, I hope that many of you will be creative with this, and do something really interesting with it. Snakes can be cute, scary, creepy, funny, silly... this contest will be judged mainly on creativity, so keep that in mind!

The Rules:
1. The deviation must have a snake in it.
2. The deviation must use my stock.
3. Contest is open to any medium; I encourage all types. Not just manipulations. The winner of my last contest was a digital painting. :D
4. You may submit up to three entries.

To submit your deviation, send a note to intergalacticstock with "Contest Submission" as the subject and a link to your deviation.

Contest begins: Sunday, February 25th.
Contest Ends: Sunday, April 15th.

hehe... i made another one. :blush:
Hah wow you're on a role.
I think my problem with these avs is that you're using stock of mine that I don't like very much... so it's my own fault they're not sticking for me.
Hahhaa I hate to ask you to try something ELSE, but maybe something that showcases a few more of my stock series' ? Like, an avvie that has 3-5 different stock images in it?
Gosh I'm horrible.
;P i definitely could! in fact, i was actually going to make another one. :XD: i like making avatars... if you didn't already notice.
which pics are your favorites? i'd love to use those ones. :)
Here are the stock images of mine that I like a lot:
1. [link]
2. [link]
3. [link]
4. [link]
5. [link]


I like this avatar that you made: [link]
The speed is good and everything.
But on the part where you have the text, could you make the bg a hot pink instead of black? And I know my username is too long, so I was thinking maybe it could scroll across? That way we wouldn't have to split it up. Let me know if that doesn't make sense.

If you do this I will LOVE you forever. :glomp:

hope you like it!
don't worry about asking for any changes to it; i have the .psd saved, so it'll be easy to make adjustments to. :)
:glomp: Good to see you posting stocks again! Your latest set is lovely. :heart:
Thank you so much!
It was good to shoot it again.. :D
watcha lookin for
Just something with a few of my stock pictures and my name on it at some point... I don't really know what I am looking for, I hope someone will surprise me and make me go "YES, that's it exactly!"

K... I'm not good at flash, but I can recomend you to blackmago, he's a fellow peruvian and he's great with nice flash avatars. Why don't you ask him? Tell him I sent you. He's got some really neat avatars and I know he makes them for people, althoug I dunno the conditions. Just a suggestion, hope it's useful.
