Hi Everyone! As some of you may know, I am a HUGE fan of Disney's "The Lion King". To celebrate this, I've decided to create a "Lion King" themed challenge! Read below for the theme, rules, and how to submit your entries. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE ALL YOUR FANTASTIC PIECES!!! :D

 

Theme: "Tiniest Creatures of the TLK World"

This challenge is dedicated to the tiniest members of the TLK world. It focuses on the lives of the ants, gnats, fleas, mites, and all of the other VERY tiny creatures (even micro-organisms) and their everyday interaction with (as well as the struggles and dangers they must face in) an enormously large world. Can you imagine the day-to-day dangers a flea or mite must experience living in a world of "giant" lions. Not getting stepped on, squashed, or eaten, are the everyday challenges they must face. Dive down into the world of these tiny and microscopic creatures in this contest.

"TINIEST OF THE TINY" SUB-CHALLENGE:

CHALLENGE - Create an entry that gives the greatest illustration of the contrast between the big and tiny worlds. In other words, to the person that can
draw the TINIEST of the tiny creatures (including micro-organisms) and what the world is like to them (with respect to the challenge description).

 

 Rules:

- The challenge is open to everyone.

- Entries can be in the form of pictures, comics, written stories, and any combination of these as well!

- Participants can enter AS MANY ENTRIES AS THEY LIKE! There is NO LIMIT, and the more the merrier!!!


- Entries can be in any type of style (i.e. they
can be a single picture, a series of sequential
pictures to tell a story, a "comic book" style
picture (several picture frames in one
main picture), etc.).

- All entries must include at least one tiny
creature (ant, flea, gnat, mite, etc.) and one TLK character in it, although more of
either is fine. It is definitely OK however,
if either the tiny creature or TLK
character can't actually be seen in the picture
because of the use of a first-person
perspective (seeing through one of the
character's eyes), although this perspective
doesn't have to be used in the entry.

- The canon TLK characters in the entry can
be drawn at ANY age, even if they have never
been featured at that age in any official
movies, books, or other works (i.e. Cub
Mufasa, Adult Tojo, etc.).

 

How To Enter:

Submit all your entries into my "The Lion King - Tiniest Creatures Challenge" folder, or provide a link to your entry (or entries) in a comment on this journal post and I will place them in the folder.

 

Here are just a couple of the fantastic entries we've received so far:

Thanks SO much to all the AMAZING artists who have submitted entries so far, and keep those submissions coming everyone! :D


 

+ If you have any questions or concerns regarding the challenge, please don't hesitate to post a comment or send me a message! :)

 


****TIPS FOR WINNING ENTRIES****
Remember, this should largely be an exercise in drawing perspective due to the dramatic difference in size between the tiny creatures and the canon TLK characters. Think "EXTREMELY tiny" and try to imagine and capture how the world and huge animals in it look from the perspective of a very tiny creature. Can you imagine how enormous a lion would look from the perspective of a flea or mite (or conversely, how tiny a flea or mite would look from the perspective of a lion)? The art should get down into this perspective, but DOESN'T necessarily have to be in first-person view (i.e. You get down to the tiny creature's level but could still be looking through a third-person's view). Be creative with the perspective and viewpoint of the art.

So, when the deadline is?
I'm pretty sure everybody wants to know that. Could you focus on "deciding the winners" more than commenting those pretty lame- ugh... I mean nice comments in the pictures? 
And about that 
"+ If you have any questions or concerns regarding the contest, please don't hesitate to post a comment or send me a message any time! :) (Smile)"

well as you can see, many of us have commented here. So...... why aren't you answering? And where are the prizes? where is EVERYTHING THAT IS NEEDED IN A REAL CONTEST? :O

Sorry about capslock. But I really hope you do answer. 
Because many of us can't wait for explanation. We deserve it. Especially those who have joined and made an entry. 

Thank you if you answered.

Or at least change the journal to reflect that the contest ended and is now a art challenge, not a contest (and you still haven't told us who won or handed out prizes)

Who's the winner and what are the prizes? This used to have an end date for a year ago and there were prizes. Everyone would appreciate it if you closed this contest, handed out the prizes and if you still want to run a contest then open a new one with prizes and a proper end date. Not this never ending non-contest that was meant to be a contest but is no longer one.

They would probably have the strongest case, but others can report for fraud. Those who entered the contest before this person decided to lie and remove the prizes scammed them, and he still promotes this as a contest when it's not. A contest has a realistic deadline and prizes for those who earned them. This guy is a shady piece of work

I think you just scammed people into making free lion king art. There's no prizes, and there's been no news for 2 years...what the heck. Glad I didn't enter this contest. Then again I don't do contests anymore

when running a contest prizes and a end date are needed other wise it's just a scam for free art.

most likely just a scam for free art.

You'd think the user who posted this would step up and say something but i have some feeling's they are just running away from the problem.

I have a few questions!
1.) When is the end date of this?
2.) Have you chosen the winning entries?
3.)Why have you removed the prizes that you could win in the contest?

When you started this, you made it a contest, with prizes and an End date. You've made alot of people work hard thinking they could win something and now you've ripped them off. Stop advertising this everywhere as a 'contest' it has no end date! It's not a contest!

Its also just bloody irritating to have people constently false-advertising. If you look back in the comments he has said in the past that there were winners and prizes but that was over a year ago and nothing has been announced or given away as prizes

I remember that he posted prizes, but now it's gone oddly.
Every Lion King fanart has him advertising, so I agree there.

Do you think this Should be reported as a scam?

Yea I agree. I guess things will take it's course.
I asked him about the prizes, and he didn't fully explain why he got rid of them. :-/

That's a major red flag, and I'm glad I didn't join this when it originally started.

Honesty, from what I'm seeing, I think he's doing this to get art made for him from the TLK community.
I'm not sure it's true, but that's what I'm seeing from him...

Hi K-9-Dog. Sorry to hear that you feel that way. That's not the intent, and a lot of people have still shown interest and are participating even though the contest has no deadline or prizes now. It's simply a theme concept and nobody has to participate that doesn't want to.
