CALLING ALL ARTISTS!
OniNovaa here, and I've got a contest for you all!

In order to raise awareness for :iconarchaic-scrolls:, I'm issuing a contest to see who can create the most unique yokai or kami! Yes!



About the group:

Archaic-scrolls is a role-play group about yokai ( demons or spirits ) and kami ( gods and goddesses ) of whom reappeared in the human world in the edo-era of Japan. It takes place in about 14th century Japan, so everything is very traditional. To learn more about the setting and background to Archaic-Scrolls, click here.




Details on the contest:

+ To enter, share a link to :iconarchaic-scrolls: in a journal
+ Your entry does not have to be on one of the apps, for you do not even have to apply to Archaic-Scrolls to enter this contest.
+ It may be anywhere AS LONG AS IT'S IN JAPAN.
+ Character MUST be in traditional attire! ( No t-shirts and jeans - Ninja-like attire is acceptable as well )
+ May either be a Yokai or Kami ( Your choice entirely )
+ Submissions will NOT be judged based on the skill level of the artist or how "professional" the piece looks.  It will be judged based on the quality and originality of ideas and how well they fit into Archaic-Scrolls
+ If you choose a yokai, it may be any kind of yokai
+ If you choose a Kami, it may only be a minor Kami ( No major gods like Amaterasu, Tsukiyomi, or Inari )
