This goes out to Maxmattsmith. (sorry new to forums, don't know how the quote thing works...lol)

What I did was just take a picture on my phone of the basic pose and e-mailed that picture to myself and pulled it up into paint tool sai. It didn't turn out great and I did what a could. It's just another option. Hope this helps and if it doesn't, I hope you find out a way to enter.

This would be great except for the scan thing. Is it just me or am I the only one on here that does not have a scanner? I don't have a use for a scanner and excluding me from this contest because I don't have one is upsetting. For those who are about to say, "well this is a use for it" or something along those lines. I am not going to go out and buy a expensive piece of equipment to enter contests.


Do you have access to a camera? That would probably work just fine or you could draw it in a program like some of the others have done. I guess I don't understand what more could be done to "include" you?

yeah like I could win by drawing something in windows paint. No I don't have a digital camera I have a camera phone that does not hook up in any way to a computer or internet. The theme here is sword art online the contest is to promote the anime so more people will buy crunchyroll subscriptions. They could make it something like a fanfic contest where you have the option to make a short side story or post a picture like they are doing now. something that doesn't limit the contestants based on what they do or do not own. They are not putting any thought into the contest because all they care about is getting more people to watch it. Most likely the person who wins the subscription is going to be a non subscriber because they want to get the winner hooked on not watching the episodes with ads. I never am able to enter these contest because they either make it so you have to have knowledge of a anime I don't watch and I can't gain by just watching one episode or you have to have some type of equipment like this scanner thing or be a member of a third party site like facebook. Before anyone says anything about that I used to have a facebook but I deleted it for personal reasons and it's not that rumor about the security issue either of course I wouldn't doubt it. I am not explaining the personal reasons because it is too complicated to explain without experiencing it and no it isn't a feature it evolves people hence personal.No I couldn't adjust the settings to fix the issue without defeating the point of using a social networking site.

You sorta make it sound like everyone is out to get you.

Though, yes, I agree these contest may have other agendas, its mostly just for fun. Art contests are a really common thing and I can see why they would prefer art contests over say fanfic contests. Fanfic contests even limited to say 1 page of text would take forever to read every submission, unless CR has a contest department that spends all day sitting around debating about the creativity and structure of selected fanfics.
And lets be honest not everyone is skilled at everything(or have equal resources) so no matter what contest they throw out some people are going to be left out. And I would say a majority of submission for this contest were from people who just wanted to have some fun, they wanted to create a character or maybe show the public a character they had in mind.
Though maybe a few people in this contest are pouring blood and sweat to win, hey they have a chance even against the highly skilled artists. Its a design contest, you just have to design something interesting, which is totally possible on MS Paint.

o-o Well, if you have so many complaints, instead of griping about it, just don't enter. Some people are here to win, others are here for fun. We all know it's a promotional thing, and that's not bad. A few people were introduced to a great anime and light novel series through this. It looks like you want the subscription too. Why else would you have clicked on a thread for an series you're not a fan of? And they do make contests with other guidelines, like the haiku one. And a fanfic contest wouldn't be practical more because of the length and number of entries, not ownership.
And yes you could win with ms paint. It's just a tool, like any other. The skill level of the user determines what the picture looks like. Absolutely nothing is prohibiting you from entering. Every computer comes with some sort of drawing/image program. There are several online for free as well, like GIMP. SAI, a widely used illustrating program, likely the same one the girl who drew the image that's been filling the last two pages used, is also online, with a free month long trial if I remember correctly.
And one last question - if you had a scanner, would you even enter?

Hey, can you provide a work in progress image for this? a sketch, and base color image should be fine. If you have a psd/sai file, it should be easy to do so. And is Tori short for Victoria?


yep, sure. I'll post in a few ^^
