Contest: Draw my OCs [CANCELED]

Sun Sep 15, 2013, 4:59 PM
EDIT2: So since I have no entries whatsoever so far, I am going to close the contest. I would like your feedback though, when would it be most convenient time for you to join a contest? What month? I am going to have another one, but I want it to go so much more better than this one, clearly. Please, let me know if you would enter my next contest (The theme  is going to be my OCs, maybe just not these two again) and what time of the year is most convenient for it? Thanks :heart:

EDIT: I know the deadline is 16th of December, but if on 10th of November I get no entries, I will have to cancel the contest. Not to worry, there will be a new one, replacing this one, as I believe this one has too much info and details. I already worked out the other contest idea and character storyline, so expect it to be published on 16th of November.

Hello and welcome to my first personal contest! :wave: :la:

Your task for this contest is to draw my two OCs, Chuck and Charlie, together!

References from me:

Their clothes: (I made these on a site called Polyvore, it's really fun ^^)

More references coming soon (I have commissioned a few drawings of them).

Chuck and Charlie by sarumanka .:PC for marianne-pet:. by kuro-shini Commission - Chuck by Kechanppu

- What you need to know about them:

-Age: 20
-Height: 190cm
-Body status: Not fat, but a bit more "wider" than normal.
-Hobbies: Games/sports/movies/music
-Poison of choice: Whiskey
-Favorite science: Philosophy and politics
-Favorite sport: Football (Soccer)- he plays the goalkeeper. Used to play Handball, too.
-Favorite dish: Pees and meat
-Fun fact: He once had a nosebleed when Charlie was massaging him.

Personality: Chuck is very intelligent and smart young man. He often participates in national quiz games. Unfortunately, he is also lazy and sometimes lacks ambition. He enjoys living his life to the fullest, very outgoing person. He loves spending time with friends at clubs. He is a womanizer and sometimes he can even be selfish and a bit of a show-off. The only girl he actually cares about and loves (in a romantic way) is Charlie. With her he tries to be a better man. He is even romantic sometimes. Charlie is the only one that has ever made his heart skip a beat. Also one of the few people he can't tell a lie to.


-Age: 20
-Height: 158cm
-Body status: Normal
-Hobbies: Art/literature/music/movies
-Poison of choice: Beer
-Favorite science: Physics
-Favorite sport: Volleyball - used to play the position of a libero.
-Favorite dish: Spinach and fried chicken + yogurt
-Fun fact: She is older than Chuck (a bit over one month).

Personality: Charlie is also intelligent, but unlike Chuck, she is very hardworking. She likes spending time with friends and going to rock gigs. She is also a bit tomboyish and she very rarely falls in love. Her friends often tease her about having a heart of a cold rock. Even though she can sometimes be mean and a bitch, she is tender and kind to the people she cares about. She is strong and fierce. Fluent in sarcasm, too. She loves Chuck.

:bulletred: Chuck and Charlie met in college (civil engineering) and they started hanging out when they studied for physics test together with another two colleagues. Thus their friendship begins. The two of them and their small group of college friends hanged out together every weekend. Chuck taught her how to play on the dart board and she became even better than him at it. He always speaks highly of her. He is the only one who can influence her to do something she maybe at first wouldn't. They just have that kind of connection. Chuck was known to be the only one who could cheer her up when she is upset. And his face lights up when she walks into the room. They also go riding bikes sometimes. She once went to see his football (soccer) game and cheered for him. They go to the movies, gaming clubs, parties (with all of their other friends ofc). After half of year of being friends, Chuck finally confessed that he is in love with her. He waited to be sure that what he actually feels is real. He couldn't just say anything to be with her like he would with other girls, because she is his best friend. She at first hesitated, because she knew he is a womanizer, but the thing is that she was also in love with him and she had to give it a go. It took her one week to make up her mind. At first they were a "secret" and only two of their friends knew. But then at a college party, Charlie (who was the one who didn't want to go public in the first place), kissed him when they were dancing, in front of everyone and that caused Chuck to give her the biggest smile ever. So they became official couple and started doing more couple-ish things. Like sleepovers, watching movies alone without friends, laying in bed all day listening to music. She also makes him cookies he loves. And of course, she influenced him to work a bit harder when it comes to college and he influenced her to be more into parties. They are not that kind of couple that spends all their time together. They go out with friends, too. Chuck was the first one to say "I love you" Charlie said it a week later. And she cried (well not really cried, but her eyes filled up with tears) when she said it. He chuckled to that and hugged her.
They are both very down to Earth, and are well aware of their own and as well as each others flaws, and they accept it and love each other all the same. As time passed, they started having doubts about their relationship. Chuck was afraid of feelings he had for her, as he had never felt that way before about anyone. It was just too much for him to handle. Out of his comfort zone. Charlie was also very afraid of her love for him, knowing that she could forgive him anything because she was afraid of loosing him and so she became cold again, not wanting to get hurt. So Chuck broke up, because he feared he loved her too much that he couldn't handle it and would eventually hurt her. Charlie knew that, but was still devastated. They both were. In the moment they were breaking up, Chuck came as close as he ever will to actually crying (eyes filled up with tears) and Charlie yelled at him for being a "pussy". They decided to stay friends, but will also take some time to heal. In spite all of that happening, they did still love each other, and they both do hope that there will come a point in their lives where they will find the strength to try again without fearing that their love will destroy them.

Fudge... and i just out out about it and wanted to enter Q_Q.
ok, so it's not about good time and bad time, there are so may contest recently that if you don't advertise yourself well enough you won't get people, i had the same problem with my contest, a lot of people joining crap contest and the nes that actually matter and are on a bigger scale they get left out.

I have found out recently that if you advertise a bit before you announce the contest with a "secret theme" people are more likely to get curious and watch for updates to when the contest is actually announced, therefore you get more entries.
