Contest is now closed! Results later on in the week!
For those new to S-FC, Species of the Week
, abbreviated as SotW, is a mini contest held roughly every week. We assign a species, and you get to design a Sonic fan character that is that species. For example, if the SotW was a bat, you'd design a bat fan character and submit it. If you already have a fan character that so happens to be the SotW, you can submit them as well, so long as the picture you submit is specifically made for the contest.
Pictures are judged on the design of the character, as well as the quality of the artwork.Everyone
is allowed to join in and participate. However, all entries must be at least flat colored
. Entries must also follow the basic S-FC guidelines (minus our quality policy), as well as dA's guidelines.
Also a new part for this year is where you will submit your entries. We've opened up a brand new gallery folder
, where you can submit!
All entries will receive 20 points
, given at the end of the contest.
Top 5 entries receive an extra 10 points!
The best submission will receive an extra 50 points!
Judging is done in private by the S-FC team, first by picking out the Top 5, and then picking out our favorites out of the Top 5, via voting.
Sketch prizes can be traded for points to the top 5 submissions: a full body sketch for the best entry with headshot busts for runner-ups either by *Yastach

A pre-existing character as the species of the week (ex. Cecille [[our mascot]] as a bat would be a no no. Your character must be the species of the week from the start)
An official Sonic character that is the species of the week (it's unlikely that we will choose a species that SEGA has used, but regardless)
