    Q&A

    Q. Where do submissions go?
    A. Design A Transformer Contest Forum

    Q. Can we submit multiple pieces of art for the same character to show transformation and/or alternate mode?
    A. Yes, please do.

    Q. Can Character be a "Drone" (aka troop builder)?
    A. Yes.

    Q. Can character have multiple modes (Earth, Cybertron, Robot, etc.)?
    A. Yes.

    Q. What is meant by plagiarism?
    A. Please do not use someone elses artwork or character creation as your own. Any character who has appeared in the Transformers mythos is acceptable. Or feel free to create your own.

    Q. Can I post a work in progress (WIP) thread?
    A. Only finished submissions should be posted in this forum. Please post all WIP thread in the Radicons Fan Art Forum.

    Q. Do submissions need to be in color?
    A. No. Submissions can be in black and white, grayscale or color.

    Q. Can I use artwork I have already done.
    A. No, all submissions must be created for thsi contest.

    Q. Can I recolor a photograph in Photoshop for submission?
    A. Submissions can not be created from existing images. If you are going to do heavy photoshop work, then it must look like your own image and not simply like a barely retouched photo.

    Q. Can I use photography for my entry?
    A. If you would like to post a photo of the alt mode ONLY, then that will be fine. It must be accompanied by your own created robot mode.

    Q. Do Autobots need to be GM vehicles?
    A. No. You are free to use your imagination for alternate modes.

    Q. Can I do a combiner?
    A. Yes, however, you must submit the combined form.

    Q. Will these entries be used in Transformers 3?
    A. Sorry, but it's not likely. This is a contest for the prizes mentioned above only.

    Q. Can I do Duocon styled designs (2 figures combine into one robot)?
    A. Yes, you are free to do so. Be as creative as possible.

    Q. Can I enter if I am not located in North America?
    A. Yes, this contest is open to all of our members.

    Q. Can a do a heavily photoshopped image?
    A. Yes, so long as it looks like your own creation.

    Q. Can I recolor official artwork?
    A. Sorry, no. It must be your own creation.

    Q. Can I use my sketches for my entry?
    A. Yes.

    Q. I've been working on something for months, can I use that?
    A. Rules state that the submission must be created solely for this contest. It is unfair to allow someone who has had months to use that when we ask everyone else to use new artwork.

    Q. Can I submit a character that may have already been submitted?
    A. Yes. So long as it's your own design, that is fine and something that's to be expected.

    Q. Can we collaborate with another member for an entry?
    A. For this specific contest, we cannot accept collaborations.

    "Decepticon Tater Tot"
    "Tater Tot is the twin brother of Ding Dong. Tater Tot has come to Earth to avenge the death of his brother Ding Dong who was mercilessly skinned alive and devoured by a flight attendant on Air Force One. Like his brother, Tater Tot can also transform into a sweet sugary chocolate treat with a cream filling. Tater Tot will avenge his brother's death. Tater Tot hates all filthy humans."

    I can't draw.

    Definitely going to enter. I'll probably create three different designs before deciding on which one to submit. I'm already getting some ideas. Just need to find an alt-mode that'll work for the idea I currently have in my mind. I probably won't win, but it'll at least be fun to try.
