For the sake of clarification, I'd like to add that Code Geass will not be allowed. The last time we did a CLAMP theme, we allowed it because technically CLAMP did the character designs, but then almost everyone made a Code Geass entry. It practically wasn't even a true CLAMP theme anymore. And since Code Geass isn't really a CLAMP series, we're not going to make the same mistake again. Other collaborative projects such as Blood-C aren't allowed either. To keep things simple, the theme will be limited to the "real" CLAMP works listed here.

It doesn't look like this theme is going to be very popular. I'd try and enter but my skills are crap, anything more complicated than MS Paint is out of my league.

Due to the absolute lack of signatures here, I have decided to put my exceptional skills at Paint to good use. If it helps, I also coloured in the background with my eyes closed and used the undo key whenever my render turned yellow. Additionally, I played darts and the combination of the three dart totals decided exactly how slanted the render would end up.

I've never entered in a graphics contest before but I'm willing to try it out. Just to have another entry if you'd like. Not to mention it'd let me play around with Photoshop for something fun rather than school work all the time. Just had a quick question. I know it says not to use other people's artwork in the rules so I just want to get some clarification before I start anything. If I get a render from another website, say for this competition a render of one of the Chobits characters, I can use that right? Also, should I edit this post with my submission or make a new post?

You can use renders, even if you didn't make them. The provision about not using other people's stuff is like... I can't submit one of Poe's signatures as my own.


 


And you can make a new post or edit that one, it doesn't make much of a difference, haha.


 


Anyway.


 


Here's the original. I lost track of what I was doing halfway through, haha.

I kind of figured that's what it meant but just wanted to check. Thanks.

Theme: Maybe something dark? Dark themed anime or a dark color theme?
