The judging process is now over. Before I say who the winners are, I just wanted to thank everyone for participating. This contest received much more attention than I imagined. I will hold contests like this again, so please make sure to drop by my page from time to time ^^

The runner up is

His comic was amazing, however- the judges thought that the quality didn't look any different from his previous works. Great job! ^^

The winner is... :iconhymnlee: !!!
RainbowWave by HymnLee His work was not only beautiful, it was also the best price he submitted to dA. We loved the coloring on this. Good job Hymn!

You both may claim your prizes by contacting the donors. Have a great day everyone ^^

Judges - Founder of Infiniti Entertainment, Head Artist of Infiniti Entertainment, and a former Naver webtoon artist have agreed to help the judging process.

Proudly supported by 3 community volunteers! Big thank you to sTiViA ,rydi1689KasumiCR the volunteers who helped advertise this contest and donated prizes ^^


*Now that we are nearing the August, the final month of this contest- I will announce what we are looking for in the contest piece. If you do not read this, it means you didn't follow the rule and didn't watch me XD

What we value in the pieces are quality to become a professional. Quality, story, the flow of the piece, etc.
Even an illustration can have story and flow in it. 
HOWEVER, we value something even more. And that is hard work. The judges WILL compare the piece to the rest of your gallery. Not only to make sure you didn't steal art but to see how much work you put into this piece. If your art is amazing but is same as rest of your gallery... the judges won't be impressed. This is not just about quality, people! This is about hard works and willpower! XDD

-Check out the doujinshi made by the group hosting this contest!…
Any donations to me will be used for the doujinshi and the contest XD

*Update: The official deadline will be August 30th. You have the entire summer vacation ^^

Hi, I just wanted to announce that I will be hosting a large scale manga/manhwa art contest .
This contest's purpose is to encourage manga/manhwa artists outside of Japan and Korea.
Currently, this contest is hosted by me and is supported by few of my friends on dA, and that won't be enough to support this contest.
If anyone or any group wants to donate something to be used as prizes, we will gladly accept it. Just send me a note ^^

I really hope we get more contributors and entries. Most manga contests are held in Japan and most of the artists in NA or Europe can't even think of joining. This contest wouldn't be able to fully replace that, but I hope people find this contest enjoyable.

-You can submit an illustration OR a manga style comic. If you submit comic, it needs to be at least 5 pages and at most 30 pages. Illustrations and comics will be judged in a different way. Either way, ones that sho more effort will be looked on more favorably.

-All form of art is accepted except 18+ artworks or anything offensive to some people(Racism, Sexism, etc)
These are some of the art forms you can use: Chibi, Sketch, Traditional, Digital, Fan art, Original Characters, etc.
They must be manga or manhwa style, though.

-You can enter as many drawings as you want, but you can only win once.

-It must be totally your work. That means no tracing, no base, no entering someone else's work as your own, etc.

-Judges cannot submit art for the contest. That won't be fair for others.

-To catch all the news about this contest, it would be best for everyone if you watch me. All the news related to this contest will be posted by me.

-Entries MUST have been made after this post. That means no entering art you already have.

We don't have much to give out now, but more prizes will be added as we find contributors ^^

Grand Prize Winner:
600 points from :iconstivia:
300 points from :iconpayaso:
a free chibi commission from :iconpayaso:
Will have the winning artwork made into a 3d model.
A free half body commission from :iconyunisu-chan:

a free commission from :iconndh707:, a half body with BG from :iconhachi-fusami: a free commission from :iconkangajii007:
Watches and Favs from the members.

Runner Ups(People I feel like they should be recognized):

 50 points from :iconndh707: depending on how many runner ups there are.

Congrats to the winners!! :D

Excellent! I hope to see more contests like this in the future! I'd say the next one should have more of a specific theme, what do you think?
ndh707 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Hmm, I have gotten a lot of requests say that my contest should have a theme...
I really don't want to limit what people can draw, which is like limiting their creativity. Maybe if I can think of something really nice and doesn't limit people much, I will use it ^^
Thanks for the suggestion.

That's understandable, I know that giving everyone free reign is what got as many participants as there was. For me personally I think its fun to have a specific theme and to see what everyone can come up with since some will create something dark and mysterious, and others may create something light and hilarious.
However, instead of looking at it as limiting someone's creativity, you can see it as challenging their creativity, which can strengthen their imaginations.
Either way, those are just ideas. I am excited to participate in the next contest! 
Hope it will be soon! ^^

Challenging their creativity... Hmm...
Interesting. I will keep that in mind XD

And I hope I can gather enough donors soon enough for the contest :D

Is it possible to hand it in a bit later if i submit a wip tomorrow? I had to thrash my first idea since it's take until december to ink so I'm making a shorter Hetalia fanfic, but I'm still needing  a bit more time(since I need to sleep and I'm drowning in homework) for inking and cleaning. So is it possible or is the ending date very strict?
ndh707 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Unfortunately, the judging will take place right after the due date. We cannot accept anything after that point.

aww ok. good luck further in your contest.

Thank you ^^

I have minimal drawing skill but feel like I have a decent idea. Could I submit it to at least get some feedback on it? It's a thought out idea but I don't know what to do with it T-T
