Slimeballs are a species I made a few years back, and up til now, they were a closed species. For this contest, you can design your own Halloween-themed Slimeballs, and keep them! They are still by approval only, so please be sure to read all about them HERE
(click "see more" under description), and then note me with your progress. I want to be able to make sure the rarity rules/guidelines are taken into consideration rather than abused. It doesn't count for much if everyone's making a rare Slimeball! And while I know it restricts their design and sounds rather complicated, the stats are important for a few projects I have in mind for them in the future, including but not limited to a board game! It will be simple(ish) and similar to Pokemon Master Trainer (one of my fave board games as a kid)
So yes, please do not create a Slimeball without consulting with me first, as I have a limited amount of rarity allowances. However, the more people who make common Slimeballs, the more likely I am to allow more rare ones! So make sure to tell your friends if you think they'd be into them!!
After reading their info (I know it's long, but all quite necessary), you can view below for the available rarity slots. IF this goes well, it may happen again in the future! GO LIKE THE FB PAGE
for updates and art! - www.facebook.com/TSFOSRULES:
- After reading about the Slimeballs and their rarity index, please note me or comment here with what rarity you'd like held for you.
- No more than 3 unique Slimeballs per artist for this contest. You MAY submit a virtually unlimited amount of entries of art involving the same Slimeball(s).
- Must be a NEW Slimeball that is created for the contest.
- Must be somehow creepy/Halloween-themed (beyond just the fact that they're slime-bodied, eyeball-headed creatures lol)
- Please include at least a few details or even a short story about them, something that tells us about your Slimeball and how it came to be, what it eats, things it likes, etc!
- Please try to aim for a low rarity. It will be more impressive to the judges, and will encourage you to make super creative, unique design without needing to add on a bunch of rare traits! More of a challenge/more fun that way :>
- Entries must be completed & sent to me by October 25th.
- DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRIES ANYWHERE PUBLICLY before they've been judged & posted on the fb page, or you may be disqualified. Send them to me via note, email or message to the fb group! (Winners will be alerted at the same time as the images are posted. I'll post an FA journal showing the winners on Halloween day, at which point you're welcome to post to your own pages!)
- You get to keep your Slimeball(s) whether or not you win, of course!WHAT DO I GET?
The prize will be art by me - The winners get their winning Slimeballs drawn! A colored sketch for 3rd prize, an inked & colored piece for 2nd prize, and a fully lineless painted image w/background for 1st prize PLUS $30 (PayPal only)!Rarity Slots Taken:

SLOTS TAKEN THUS FAR: 34! Be sure to get your entries in in time, especially if you wanted a rarity of 6-8!
The contest will be judged by myself & some other Halloween-y fans that are not associated with the entrants, this way it's as fair as possible, as no one will have a bias. It will be judged based on creativity, artistic ability/effort put in, and accuracy to the species. Extra points for including a background/scene that tells a story/illustrates a part of their world or lifestyle! Entries will be shown on the facebook fan page's wall once they've been judged before they're posted anywhere else, so be sure to follow it
Contest ends on Oct 25!
