Blue-Fronted Amazon by KristynJanelleGalah by KristynJanelleCitron by KristynJanelle

I love my watchers, but it is becoming harder to thank each individual person for helping me out. So, I've decided to hold a contest, as a way of saying thanks. It's not much, but I figure it's a small way of giving back to the people who have supported me and helped me get to where I am today. :aww:

:bulletblue::bulletblue:THE CONTEST:bulletblue::bulletblue:

The theme is very simple. Create a piece of artwork involving any of my birds. It can be one of them, two of them, all of them, one of them and one of yours together, anything. It can also be any medium. Drawing, photo-manipulation, poetry, crafts, anything! If you create something that absolutely blows me away or that I can't help but love, I may be tempted to buy it. ;P If you're not sure whether or not your idea qualifies, you can note me.

Here are some reference pictures of my birds, and a bit of info that may be helpful about each. The more inventive you are with this, the better! If you'd like a certain angle on picture, let me know and I can try and get one for you.

Huntington : i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i…
Species : Blue-Fronted Amazon
Sex : Male
Age : 2
Loves : Hanging upside-down, papaya, calling himself a "good boy", saying hello to Noah, stealing people's glasses

Noah : i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i…
Species : Budgie
Sex : Male
Age : 3
Loves : Putting all his toy rings through his giant toy ring, mumbling to himself, balancing on his tennis ball, broccoli

Carlitos : i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i…
Species : Citron-Crested Cockatoo
Sex : Male
Age : 10
Loves : Drinking his water from a cup, doing flips, cuddles, saying hi to Chickie, unsweetened cheerios

Chickie : i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i… i1257.photobucket.com/albums/i…
Species : Galah/Rose-Breasted Cockatoo
Sex : Female
Age : 10
Loves : Getting head scratches, throwing my art supplies everywhere, sitting on my lap while I'm on the computer, being inside Carlitos's cage instead of her own

:bulletblue::bulletblue:THE RULES:bulletblue::bulletblue:

1. All entries must be submitted before February 20th, 2013
2. You must watch me. As I said, this is a contest to thank my watchers! New watchers are, of course, welcome.
3. Entries may be submitted in journal comments or through a note.
4. You can enter as many times as you want, but only one will be chosen.

:bulletblue::bulletblue:THE PRIIIIZZEE:bulletblue::bulletblue:

First off, all entrants will be featured in a journal at thumbnail size. However, entries that place will be featured much more prominently, with large thumbnails and some info about the artist, why it was chosen, etc.

If you would like to contribute any sort of additional prizes, please let me know and I will add yours to the list :aww:

First Place
- One 9 x 12" Commission from me

Additional Prizes

Best Background - 100 Points
Cutest - 100 Points

:bulletblue::bulletblue:ENTRIES:bulletblue::bulletblue:

Entries can be viewed here : kristynjanelle.deviantart.com/…

:bulletblue::bulletblue:ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:bulletblue::bulletblue:

The contest will be judged a little weirdly. Because I am not a fan of popular vote contests (I feel they can be swayed too easily towards someone with more watchers), and also I don't want any bias of my own coming into play, I will be asking for the help of some close friends and family members in deciding who wins. That way, I can keep it completely neutral. They won't know who you are or anything about you, and you will be judged solely on what you created!

Also, I am sorry for the ME2 reference in the Prize section. I shouldn't have... but the priiizzee.

:heart:Kristy

Kristy, I am SO SO sorry that I have to ask you this, but are you able to extend the deadline? I've been rather busy, preparing for an audition and concert tour. I just got back from out of town.

Again, I'm sorry to ask. ^^; I have the unfinished entries lying on my desk...waiting to be finished..

It's alright...I'm a bit sad, because :iconsaphire666: and I obviously had the same idea. I'm a bit disappointed about that...but I couldn't change my entry or make a new one because I had already uploaded my entry when she submitted hers. Oh well, we'll see!

Okay, getting started!
Hmh, are all the three birds of similar size? (I'm saying three 'cause obviously the budgie is tiny). Or I guess Carlitos would be the biggest, then Chickie, then Huntington?
Reply
:iconkristynjanelle:
KristynJanelle Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I know you already completed the entry, BUT I'll still answer. You got their proportions correct in the drawing. Carlitos is the largest, followed by Huntington, followed by Chickie. The size difference is pretty subtle between the three. Their beaks are the most noticeable! :XD: Carlitos's beak is huge.

Do you mind explaining how Carlitos does his flips? Does he roll on his back?
Reply
:iconkristynjanelle:
KristynJanelle Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
He hangs from the top of his cage by his feet, upside down, and then swings backwards and grabs the side of the cage with his beak, legs go of the top and lets his feet fall to grab the side of the cage as well. If that makes sense.

I'm working on Huntington right now, and I wonder what the insides of his wings look like. Would you be able to take a picture from the insides of his wings? If not, I can still easily change the pose, he's just a sketch right now.

:iconkristynjanelle:
KristynJanelle Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Can't get a picture like that since he doesn't really like spreading his wings much. Here's someone else's BFA though that looks pretty much the same : [link]
