MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 01-02 ~ Art Moderators Avatar & Signature Sets!
Happy New Year! Today we're starting a new Art Contest cycle. And this week's category is Avatars and Signatures with the theme set as Art Moderators. Your first challenge in 2014 is to create a pair of sets (with 2 avatars and 1 or 2 signatures) that myself and nanaDmari will wear during the following two weeks. I'm hoping to see beautiful, daring or even funny works here!
Category: Avatar & Signature Sets
Theme: Art Moderators
- All members may join this competition. There is no minimum post or user status you need to have to join the contest.
- Entries for the contest must be posted in this thread.
- Each participant can only submit ONE entry and that entry should be new (meaning it must not have been used in contests hosted by MangaHelpers previously).
- Use MangaHelpers' Image Gallery to upload your entries. Any problem with uploading, let us know.
- You must credit the artist of the stock.
- Submissions not following the week's theme will automatically result in disqualification. If you have any question about the contest, you can ask it here.
- For signature or avatar contests, forum rules still apply unless stated otherwise (including size). That means your signature must NOT exceed 600 x 200 px and 500 KB. For avatars the maximum size is 150 x 150 px and 50 KB.
- No excessive, suggestive, spoiler, or porn-related pictures in the contest.
- No plagiarizing is allowed.
- You have to create a pair of sets (with 2 avatars and 1 or 2 signatures) to be used by both moderators.

ExampleCode:"Theme Name" - "Work Title" by "Artist Name" (Large size thumbnail - upload image to image gallery.) "Comments" "Credits"
Female - Sayuri by Leen Stock / Credits: from Planetrenders.net

Good luck, everyone!

Art Moderators - "Two in One" by naruto-niichan
Sig for both:
Well the idea is that both work together that they basically work as one person with two souls. So yeah, that's why they get a different ava each, but the sig symbolizing that they are two souls sharing one body~

Art Moderators Avatar & Signature Sets - "Our Promise" by biloon
The initial design actually looks better. At first, I already planned (and sketched) for a banner pose. However, I suddenly encountered some other workload and ended reusing and rush-finishing the artwork. If there's next time, maybe I'll consider drawing the whole body =P.
