Noo Year

Happy New Year, Zhao club!! We're at 60,000+ pageviews, nearly 140 members, and 400+ watchers :wow: CRAZY!!! Well not *so* crazy considering the subject matter but you know XD

Anyways! With the new year comes some awesome contests! Inspired by Pretty-Angel's suggestion from the last journal: :flame:Seasonal Zhao Contest!:flame:

The object of the contest is to create the best image depicting a seasonal Zhao XD I think winter (in this hemisphere at least) is Dec-Feb? Right? so lets start with a winter Zhao theme! I don't imagine firebenders love winter as much (except for possibly log burning?)... anyways, not sure how many people will be interested in these but maybe if we have enough entries we can choose a few good ones from each round and make a calendar of it for 2009? Who knows?!?!

Entries can be drawn or painted or written or whatever you'd like, as usual! There are no restrictions, go ahead and be as ridiculous as you like, I think we sort of broke the original 'no slash' rule a while ago XD Winner will be decided based on originality/ effort/ concept, even if you don't consider yourself the greatest artist, you'll still have a great chance as long as we can see how much work you put in :3 The winner of the popular vote will get their deviation put up as the featured piece, and will have more consideration in the final decision. On the off chance that we do make a calendar or something, and you want to conform to the calendar image submitting standards, please check this out FAQ #698: How should I design and submit a calendar? for image size requirements.

Due date will be... Feb 20th! So you have plenty of time!

Prize will be some sort of sub or itunes credit or somesuch like that, to be amended as it is decided :B If you'd like to donate a prize please note to let us know! Also the contests are only open to members, if you'd like to participate but are not a member feel free to join at any time.

Any other questions can be noted or commented here!

Have fun and good luck!

:flame: THE CLUB :flame:

If you are a fan of Admiral Zhao from the Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar the Last Airbender, then this is the club for you! If you hate him and want him to fall into a wagon of poo like in Back to the Future, then this is also the place for you! Even if you're just a fan of the show and like joining stuff so you can put your icon all over the place, come on in! If you are a fan of differential equations, get the hell out.

:flame:JOINING :flame:

Not so hard, all you have to do is note me and you will be in the club. You don't have to slap the club on your page or anything, but feel free if you wish. Members can submit their art to the site and win fabulous prizes (no purchase necessary)!

:flame: SUBMITTING WORK :flame:

The best part is you get to pimp your art all over Deviantart. Anything related to our favorite asshole, including hate art, is allowed. Once you're a member, just note the club and it will get posted.


You just shut your damn mouth.

wooh! I really wanna enter, but have no wintery themed ideas yet :<

Thankyou for featuring my pic! :D

I started my entry today, and while no one else may think it's funny, I'm laughing just working on it. I don't care if I win (has everyone seen the amazing artists in this club?), I just want to finish it up and share it with you guys!
Here's hoping I'll have it done after the weekend.

lolol winter Zhao.

I might kick my buttocks and do this ):< Though is it mandatory I submit it to my own gallery, or could I just note you guys with the picture?
NoSelfControl Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2008
You can totally note it in, I'll just post whatever you link to. If you don't do this I'll have to go over there and smack you up, btw.

Threat taken and shall be adhered to, sir!
rufftoon Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2008
I guess you could make it a club exclusive by just having it posted here, but you'll have to check with the grandmaster for that.

As much as I would want a calendar, isn't that not so legal?
shingworks Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
hmm, thats a good point... i'll have to think on that. I know people do sell prints of like fanart and stuff but again thats sort of iffy right? I'll look into it!
