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 host a "Lion King" themed contest! Read below for the contest 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 contest 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" CONTEST 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 contest description). The tiniest
size creature may not necessarily win (as other factors can influence the choice for winner (i.e. picture quality, picture concept, etc.)), but
this is the general theme of this sub-challenge and the primary focus in deciding the winner. This sub-challenge is NOT a requirement for
contest entries, and any and all submissions that follow the posted rules are welcome and greatly desired.

 

 Rules:

- The contest 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
canon TLK character in it, although more of
either is fine. It is definitely OK however,
if either the tiny creature or canon 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 perpsective
doesn't have to be used in the entry.

- The TLK characters in the pictures MUST
be canon characters. I am expecting to see
mainly the canon lion characters, but entries
with canon characters who aren't lions (i.e.
Zazu, Timon, Pumbaa, etc.) are allowed. They
can be from any movie, comic, story book, or
the 6 New Adventures books (i.e. they can be
from ANY Lion King work that isn't
fanfiction). The two exceptions to this that I
am allowing are Tanabi and Sora Lion (from
Kingdom Hearts II), both of which can be used.

- 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 contest entries into my "The Lion King - Tiniest Creatures Contest" 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.

+ 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! :)

 


 ****GOOD LUCK**** 

 ****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.
