INTRODUCTION


Missing Halloween, an animation about two kids trick or treating, was previewed last year on Youtube:

However, the deadline was missed and was decided to remain its production on hold.
But not anymore, of course! Halloween is coming soon after all!


WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?


Are you looking forward to watching Missing Halloween?
Do you design your own characters?
Would you like to help with Missing Halloween's production?
Then this is your chance!!!

You can get your design featured in the animation Missing Halloween!


HOW???


In the animation, there's a part of the story where it features locals in costume giving candies to the two main kids.
This is where you come in!
I decided that instead of randomly designing these people, I can give my fans the opportunity to have their designs featured in the animation!
And if there are too many designs contributed, I can use the others as kids who Trick or Treat in the background!


SUBMISSION


Submit your own original designed character to the director himself: Mikeinel via note here in DeviantArt. (Possibly with a subject title: "Missing Halloween Submission")
And get a chance to have your design, re-rendered into the animation's cute-and-cartoony art style, appear in Missing Halloween!



REQUIREMENTS


-It could be an existing design you created before, even long ago, or a new one you made specifically for this contest!
-Only one design can be submitted per artist.
-The character must be a regular human. (Added) He/she can have additional parts such as animal ears, tail, wings, etc.
-Of course, you should be the owner of the character design.
-The character should not directly be based on any other existing designs.
-No nudity, gore, or anything that can be found offensive to most people.


SCHEDULE


August 23 to August 31:
Accepting of designs.

September 1:
Announcement of the submitted character designs.

September 1 to September 14:
Judging, sorting, and possibly re-rendered into Missing Halloween's art style.

September 15:
Announcement of the designs to get in the animation!


CLICK HERE FOR THE RESULTS


JUDGING


The submissions will be judged and sorted by the director himself!

The top 5 best designs will have the following:
Their character will be featured as one of the young adults giving candies to the kids, fully animated!
Their name put in the credits as "Additional Character Design"

The next 10 (or more) best designs will have the following:
Their character will be featured as one of the many kids in the background, Trick or Treating!
Their name put in the credits under "Character Design Contribution"


ALTERATION


In order for the character design to fit in the animation, your submission will have to be altered to accommodate the art-style and content, (Added) making the fantasy-like parts into costume. We're talking about kids in costumes, after all!
Example: Extended body parts such as animal ears, tail, wings, etc. will be redesigned into costume accessories.

Altering/redesigning will be done by the director himself.

Here are some visual examples:



AGREEMENT


By submitting your design to the project, you'll have to agree to the following:
-If your submission gets accepted to be featured in the animation, you will automatically give permission to let your design be used in the animation.
-(Added) The design you submitted still belongs to you, of course. You may use it to however you like for other purposes, it's your creation after all.
-The re-imagined design will be final and may not be edited when the animation is done.
-No additional rewards, payments, or requests can be made at any time, unless stated otherwise by the director.

-The schedule may possibly be changed at anytime by the director, depending on various situations. (I do hope it doesn't)


FINAL NOTE


If ever you wish to submit a design, then let me just say this in advance: THANK YOU!!! Thank you for helping out on this project!
Missing Halloween may not be a masterpiece, but rest assured, it'll be longer than Draw with Me.
It will be released for free only on Youtube, in hopes that this will be my next animation that isn't an April Fools or job commission~
I hope people around the world will enjoy watching it when it's done!


ON A SIDE NOTE:
To the people who have been reserved in my commission page, don't worry, you are not forgotten. But sadly, I have to give priority to other things at the moment. (And this could take months) Thank you for understanding.

Darn I thought this was going to be a journal about previous people that were added before, but I didn't know you were actually adding people. Should've actually opened the journal rather than skip it. DX Hope you do another though and can't wait to see!

So just out of curiousity, say we have a design, do we have draw another thing to make it look like they're wearing a costume or make them look as close to your style as possible?

Also do we have the entire day of the 31st to submit?

The character design will be judged by the overall design, not really the character. Though it doesn't have to be drawn in any specific art style, simply draw it to whichever art is more comfortable to you.

And yes, as long as it's not yet September to any countries, the contest is still open.

I submitted my character, I just hope that it's okay that it's a design I did some time ago. From what I can tell, it seems to be okay that we submit an unaltered design. :)

Hehe I guess I'm lucky I'm still within the deadline. :D

So my question is, are you going to make that again?

My friend just read this, and got a concept art made in 10 minutes in his sketchbook. He's freaking out in the middle of our computer art class trying to get something done.

I am very tempted to do something and submit a character to you, but I'm terribly swamped with work and college. T3T
Maybe next time you do something like this. If you ever do, that is. TAT

Question!

What if a friend of mine and I both have characters for a long term collaborative project, but I'm the one that draws and she can't?  I would talk to her first before submitting any design, mine or hers, but if she were interested would it be alright if I drew it for her and let her submit it under her name? (as well as submit my own character under my name)

Mikeinel Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I suppose that's technically two artists, so it's alright. But as long as your friend is interested, of course.

Ah I talked to her and we decided that we wanted to wait until we could find a way to animated our characters ourselves before we let anyone else do it~ but thank you anyway :) I can't wait to see the animation when it's done~

Uhhhhhhh as I can see in your profile you're a Filipino. Same here actually xD Is it fine if others drew it? Because my scanner is broken and my parents won't buy another one. Or is it okay if it's like what my avatar shows. I'll just describe the lower body. Is that fine?
