THE 589th CLUB COMMITTEE PROUDLY PRESENTS:


So this is it! The official thread of the NONOVEMBER 2009!
Even if you don't have any skills in drawing ... please read this :)

THE NONOVEMBER RULES said:

WHAT IS THE NONOVEMBER?

The Nonovember is the month, where we all hail our goddess by offering her our dearest and the most love-filled drawings!

DRAWINGS? WHAT KIND OF DRAWINGS?

Of course, drawings of Nono which are conform to the MAL rules.
It should be something fit to be our new main page club picture!
Be sure to use traditional mediums like colored pencils and paper, if you don't have the necessary skill, tools or ambition to create "really neat" digital work.

As a main club picture, we have to resize the drawing to 500px width afterwards - The length of the picture doesn't matter. The recommendation is to draw an upright picture - like ZoiQ's current profile picture - bigger, of course, but not too big. We all want to make out every detail on the resized version of your picture too, right?

You can submit more than one drawing! E.g. four pictures! One for each season! That way, I can match the club picture to the current season! .. That's an impossible request, right? *sigh*

BUT WHYYYYYY SHOULD I START DRAWING?

First of all: For the love of Nono!
Second reason: For the sake of the club! At the end of the month, we're all going to vote which of the submitted drawings is the best and the one which deserved the most to be the new picture on the club's main page!
Third reason: We are going to hand out prices for the winners of this contest!

[...]

ADDITIONAL:
MY DRAWING SKILLS SUCK.. WHAT NOW???


THAT DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL - There is this saying: "The thought is all that counts!"
Be sure that you give your best and all your love into the drawing and it will succeed!
To take care, in any activity, is a form of expressing love.



YOU GOT IT? It's fairly easy, isn't it?

But here's a summary of all the important parts:

  1. You grab a piece of paper and all materials needed!
  2. You begin to draw.
  3. What you draw is up to you. But Nono has to be on it and there should be no nudity.
  4. Take all the time you need and don't rush! Deadline is the 30th of November!
  5. Complete your drawing and submit it by loading it up to your ftp or imageshack.us or abload.de - whatever is available - and by posting it in the NONOVEMBER DRAWING SUBMISSION THREAD!
  6. You can submit more than one drawing!
  7. At the end of the month, a vote will decide which the best drawing is!
    It's going to be our new main club picture and it has to be resized to 500px width. Be sure to draw an upright picture!
  8. And yeah, there will be also PRICES for the ones who draw the best pictures!


or:
Just do it like Nono does on the current main picture and submit like hell!



USEFUL ADVICE:

  • Address the process rather than the outcome.
    Then, the outcome becomes more likely.

  • Nothing worthwhile is achieved suddenly.

  • Be very careful about the beginning.
    Then, be very careful about the end.
    Then, be very careful about the middle.

  • Begin with the possible and move gradually towards the impossible.

  • May we have the courage to fail.


AND THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE:

  • We may not have an equality of talent;
    we may not have an equality of experience.
    But we may be equal in aspiration;
    we can be equal in commit­ment.



NEW DEADLINE: DECEMBER 7, 2009
Please participate with goodwill and with courtesy.
