Is there any reason why the contest rules are in "fine print"? It's not like there's printed page space restrictions on a website...

I love Flamie, but I don't want her plastered on my shirt. The Rokka tatoo design would be a much better shirt. I hope they come out with one.

All the best to our artistically inclined folk who will be participating in this contest.

Name: Diablo

Race: Fiend

Background: Originally a high ranking figure in the kingdom of fiends, but was banished after being framed for the murder of a fellow fiend. Lived in secret in the human realm for the past 10 years with hatred towards fiend. Highly intelligent and able to communicate with humans.

Would bet my ass that something like this is going to come up in the contest. And it would be a complete badass.

I can't enter because it's not open to my country, but it's not like I have any artistic skills anyway. That's just sad T.T

I guess it's to send the subtle message: "You can start skipping now."
Well, not that you should, but you'll only lose your soul at worst. =^-^=

That's a nice idea; I hope folks will notice/respect Rule #2.

We've always done it that way. It's slightly tongue in cheek.

It's pretty rare for people to lift artwork for our contests, although it has happened occasionally. On the rare cases that it does happen, people are quick to discover and report it (because we post the entries before announcing the winner).

With reverse image search, it's easier than ever to spot a copycat.

Would be nice if artwork wasn't really a requirement. I'd love to create a character, but I am absolutely terrible at creating that kind of art. Too bad, I'd love to submit a character.

What if the artwork was a commission, but it belongs to you?

EDIT: A friend of mine drew a picture for me and gave it to me. Can I use a watermarked version because I do not want other people to use it for their OCs. (It has happened) Can I use that picture is what I'm asking.

I haven't read every single word of the terms, but from what I've gathered, you only need to be the owner of this original* artwork.

I think it's possible, but not what would normally be called a "commission".

First, how I think commissions are usually "done":
1. client pitches idea to artist
2. artist accepts idea in exchange for payment
3. client has licensed rights over the artwork

The extent of the license depends on the commission. It's mostly about whether the clients wants it for commercial use or if the artist wants to use/sell the artwork himself/herself.

TL:DR: I don't think the term "commission" is used when the intellectual property belongs/is transferred to the client usually.
Granted, if you're a company and hire a freelance artist for something, you might want the "full right" to the artwork he/she creates. I think it's rather uncommon for contests like this, though.

Note: All the rights of the contest entries being "surrendered" to the one/s holding the contest is common practice, though.

* It can't be available anywhere else and can't have watermarks and the like. Basically, the artist isn't going to get any credit. I don't think that's how commissions usually work.
