We're nearing the one year anniversary of the day that the F3 tornado hit our town. It's definitely been a really crazy year for many people – some of it has been bad, and some of it has been good. I definitely get a little freaked out when thunderstorms come in over the lake, and I think everyone does, now. Only recently did some people even get to start re-building their houses because of insurance reasons. It's sad. But it's good to see progress. About 95% of the businesses that were destroyed due to the tornado are back, too. Unfortunately the place I was working at wasn't one of them.

I just wanted to give a quick shout-out to those that helped us out, last year. Monster Kookies managed to raise $819 for Goderich, and many of you donated money. So thank-you. It's meant a lot to all these families and businesses that have been trying to get back on their feet.

Now, putting these matters aside…

I thought that it was time for a DA contest! I haven't had one in awhile, and I know that there are so many very talented folks here – it's the perfect kind of crowd. I'm already doing a "Share & Win" contest on Facebook, so if you're on FB and haven't liked the Monster Kookies Facebook page, get over there and take part in it. Look for the "Share & Win" MechOwlie photo on my page, and read the description so you know what to do. There is also a special coupon there for my Etsy Shop, as well. The contest is over at the end of August – just ten more days!

The "Inspired by MK" DA contest starts on August 21st and ends on October 21st. So what is it exactly? Well, can be all sorts of things, really – you aren't limited to any medium. It can be traditional, digital, whatever you want. But create something inspired by Monster Kookies.

Do you have some Monster Kookies goodies of your own? Take some fun photos of them, use props, do something strange and unusual.

Are you good with photo manipulations and digital drawing? Use some of the photos from my gallery and make something awesome with them.

Like a particular piece in my gallery? Make a tribute to it. Sculpt it. Draw it. Come up with your own twist on it.

Here are some great examples that have been inspired by Monster Kookies!

Gears of Nature by kittleson013006 The last AVP challenge by IllyDragonfly 'Production Overload' by Tony-Luna-Studios Monster Cirkus by TreeTopFoxx

Men In Mask_a lot of cupcakes by IllyDragonfly Inked on the Beach Cupcake by d3sc3nd3d-on3 Can I Keep It? by Skryntarr Dinosaur NES Wallpaper by SansNoir
:thumb332716353:

There really aren't too many rules, so go crazy! All I ask is that you don't outright copy any of my work. Don't just pick one of my sculptures and try to re-sculpt it – come up with your own twist on it, or create it in an entirely new style. Be creative! Also - NEW WORKS, only! Contest entry must be made for this contest, and it cannot be a past deviation.

Most importantly – have fun!

THE CONTEST HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 21st!!! All you need to do is upload your contest entry to DeviantArt, put a link to my DeviantArt page or this journal entry in the description, and then send me a Note with a link to your contest entry. Simple as that! After October 21st, I will make a journal entry with ALL of your contest entries, and we will have a public vote on your "Top 5" favourites. YES – There will be prizes! :D

Questions? Comment below! :)

Well, I would have got it done in time, but I got distracted making Steampunk clockwork surveillance devices. Bug bugs, in fact. [link]

I was really impressed by the range of pieces inspired by your work.

Oh, very cool! I like that vial type thingy on his bum. XD

Me too! It was great to see such a variety...

Shee..don't tell anyone? The vial on his bum is a Christmas tree light bulb turned upside down (usually the point in the glass bulb gives it away) and the two wires that protrude removed. But it's our little secret, ok?

Ohhh I have an amazing idea! :D
Ofcourse I will sketch it first, but then I want to craft it myself.
But I don't know if I'll finish it in time, could I enter the contest with the shetch as well?
Reply
:iconmonsterkookies:
monsterkookies Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Yup, even just a sketch will do. :) I may end up extending the contest, actually.

I thought I could craft some today, but after school I've been busy baking cakes and delivering them to customers, so I arrived back home at 9pm :o
