September is Self-Improvement month. I thought this would be a great time to launch my project that I am calling "Improvement for the Better."

As artists, we are really self critical of our work.
I thought it would be interesting to see how much you have improved.

So, to participate in this project, you will take an old work of yours, be it on the site or not, and redo it. To submit it, you will place the two side by side, and label them Before and After. You may also say in your artist's description something like "the one on the right is before, and the one on the left is after" or something like that. Your title will be "Improvement for the Better: (how much time between the two) You will submit to a folder named Improvement for the Better in my group Proud-ToBe-Divergent You don't have to be a member there to submit. (Thank you to Cheburaskah for beta-ing that). Everyone gets one entry per person. This project will end at the end of September.

There will be prizes, which I will mention more of later on.

Here is an example I did.
Improvement for the Better: 2 years by naladraws

My title would be "Improvement for the Better: 2 years"

So to recap, or for quick reference;

What is the theme?
There is no theme. You can redo anything! The things that are likely reasonable to redo are: Traditional art, digital art, and things like statues, artisan crafts and such. Photos...not so much, but if you can come up with something, do it! ^.^

What do I submit?
You submit the two side by side, with before and after on it or in the description somewhere. The title is "Improvement for the Better: (how much time in between the two)

Where do I submit?
Submit to a folder called Improvement for the Better in my group Proud-ToBe-Divergent. I know, the group is totally unrelated, but it is my group.

How many entries do we get?
One each. :D

What is the deadline?
End of September :)

What are the prizes?
There will be three winners chosen. All will win the same prizes.

Those three (3) winners will get:
:bulletred: 800 :points: from Moonbeam13
:bulletred: a feature in my journal

Can I donate prizes?
Yes! You can donate anything, including but not limited too:
Points
Money
Features in journals or groups
Free commissions: icons, drawings, free adoptables, ect.
Memberships
Craft requests: jewery, clothing ect.


If you would like to donate something, comment away!
Just be sure that you know you will be giving out three of what you offer.

Is there any requirements for entering?
Just that you follow the rules that are mentioned above.
I would also suggest (it's not required) that you watch me to see who wins. You can just unwatch me afterwards if you like.

If you have any questions that is not answered above, feel free to ask. If I do not respond, please reread the journal.

Happy drawing,
Alex Rashid

I have another question: there is a similar contest going on on DA currently, an official one: can my entry be used in both contests?
