Night Rainbow by blix-it Night Rainbow by blix-it
I'm not sure if previously created illustrations are eligible, but to be fair ... I did have to take each element [snow, sky, stars, dog, shadow] and place them on the newly shaped canvas and scale and rotate and sometimes redraw to try and create a new and good horizontal composition. ^^ I have read the rules, and I believe the original illustration is eligible. (But I'd like to note that that depends on "commercial use" - I have sold prints and tees of it at trade shows, but as far as I know I alone have printing rights to this image.)

EDIT: I'd like also to know who retains printing rights to this image. If I do, then there should be no issue with my own commercial use of it. Obviously they have sole rights to a lap top skin of this design. But what about everything else?

^^;

So assuming this piece is eligible ....

>3< I've always wanted to see this illustration as a personal device skin. The aurora was inspired by the abstract vector art that's so often used. <3 And this contest is for back to school! dkadskfjhalkjsdfh This illustration was done with happiness in mind. :3 (er ... I was always happy to go back to school ...)

Thank you for looking!

Whislt the night sky itself is a little simple, the concept of creating an aurora and jsut palcing it around is incredibly effective - it just screams of innocence, and for that I appluad you. Great vector drawing all around, and you've certainly done brilliantly at it.

First, I have to say this is beautiful entry! Great colors, fun design, it's practically guaranteed to win. :)

Now, I hate to be the one to crash the party, but I figure its best to mention this before its to late:

From the official rules: "The Work (i) may not have been made commercially available..."

That is a universal statement. It sounds like of the image was available for any commercial activity previously, it will be disqualified, regardless of who had what rights at the time, etc. Just a suggestion but, it might be wise to ask and find out for sure if this is ok or not. It would be a shame to see such an amazing entry be disqualified just because of a small clause in the rules.

Good luck! :)

I don't know WHO on deviantart to ask though. ;_; [On other occasions regarding other questions, I have asked the help desk and they've turned me away and told me to use the forum, for whatever good that does.]

So I am just going to let them disqualify it if it is not eligible. o.o; I don't mean any harm and I hope they read this comment. They only way I felt I could get an answer was to submit it and have it refused.

At least I'm being honest that I've personally sold prints of it.
