Rules for the Contest
You must use at least 1 male stock found on deviantArt, and make him into your favorite character. You may also request stock from the male stock providers. We have no control over whether or not they will accept your request, but know that may be an option if you can't find exactly what you want.
The characters must be from a book/game/movie/tv show/comic/cartoon/etc. that's copyrighted, and NOT someone's OC. The character doesn't necessarily have to be male or human. The contest is open to all visual media. This is a change from the original rules so that more people will want to participate and can do so in their strongest medium.
Maximum of 3 entries per person.
The contest starts NOW and ends on the 30th of June (that's more than 2 months). This will give you time to wait for requested stock, and really put some good work into your entry(s).
All entries must be a new deviation created after the 18th of April.
You must state on the deviation that is in an entry for this contest, and you must give a link to somewhere that explains your character. This is to verify that it's a real character from a book/movie/game/show/whatever. You must also, of course, credit the stocker(s) whose work you used.
There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, and possibly honorable mentions depending on number of entries.
