I would appreciate ANY & ALL attempts to either contact these Deviators and/or to request they approve their Deviations' submission(s)to our galleries! Tha list is as follows:

- May contain less keys than you'd think!
--May contain very few keys than previously thought!!
*Didn't do alot of research beforehand!!!

I should have more as time goes on!
Nothing major; I just have this(sort of)tradition!

That Is All...but don't forget
FOREWARNING: This contest is not being hosted by this group; I am only featuring it here at the request of my esteemed colleague! You may continue:
Lights, Camera, Action!

Depict a scene with Merreth in conflict with another character from her world.  This can be a physical or verbal confrontation or even a battle of wits.

Choose one of the following scenes (yes, some reading is required :)):
Lady Merreth confronts Scribe Duggel

Upon her arrival to see High Mistress Rhekhell of the Western Watch, Lady Merreth meets her chief scribe, Duggel, who insists upon following procedure with regard to Rhekhell’s appointments. Merreth’s temper, already frayed after a long ride, snaps.

Ladies Tiandraa and Lyadkell of the Red Hand bait Merreth

After meeting with Mistress Rhekhell, Lady Merreth and Scribe Sarrit meet Ladies Tiandraa and Lyadkell of the Red Hand in the main room of the Watch Administration building.  Lady Tiandraa steps into the room from the outside, opening the door suddenly and catching Merreth full in the face.  Things go rapidly downhill from there.
Link to Chapter with full scene

Honour Bout between Lady Merreth and Lady Tiandraa

Lady Merreth refuses to apologize to Lady Tiandraa for publically striking her in front a crowd of commoners.  Lady Tiandraa demands satisfaction in an Honour Bout.  Merreth accepts and the bout is staged in front of a crowd of Watch nobles and commoners. Things do not go well for Lady Tiandraa.
Link to Chapter with full scene

Lady Merreth rescues a commoner from a group of tavern thugs

Merreth returns to the eastern Matriarchy after her adventures in the Western Watch province.  It’s winter – cold and wet; she takes refuge in commoner tavern.   There she witnesses a commoner shopkeeper bullied by several local toughs.  Merreth doesn’t care for bullies and when none of the other patrons intervene, she decides to do so.
Link to Chapter with full scene

Lady Merreth confronts Lady Simma of the Red Hand

An impulsive decision on Merreth’s part forces her to work closely with Lady Simma – a Red Hand noble.  Without realizing how dangerous it is to push Merreth, Lady Simma baits her once too often.  Merreth loses her temper and acts like one of the things she loathes – a bully.
Link to Chapter with full scene

Pick Your Own Scene from the posted Lady Merreth Literature

Don't like any of the foregoing scenes?  You can pick a conflict scene from any of the posted literature within the Stories and Chapters folder.

However, before you depict the scene, note me first for approval.

   Contest Winners will be featured on the LadyMerrethsAuthor DA page for two weeks after prize payout.
   Winning entries will also be displayed on the Tales of Lady Merreth FaceBook Page and Lady Merreth’s Author Blog.
   All contest entries will be displayed within the DA Lady Merreth Group.
   All Contest Entries will be placed into a Contest Gallery on the LadyMerrethsAuthor page at the contest’s conclusion with links back to the artists.

Eligible Art Types

Contest entries can be:

   Line art – as long as it is clean and “finished looking”
   Photo manips

I prefer entries to be of realistic proportions.

Backgrounds are preferred, but not mandatory.   Many of contest scenes provide some information to provide a background (e.g. room or immediate vicinity of the confrontation).
How Contest Entries are Judged

Entries are judged on:

   Adherence to Merreth’s appearance and the appearance of other characters in the scene
   Originality – although you may choose to illustrate a conflict that has already been depicted (for example, ‘Bitch Slap’), greater weight will be given to such illustrations that incorporate originality (for example if they done from a different vantage point and, of course, in your own style).
   Adherence to the description of the scene chosen

Entering Your Submission

To enter your art in the contest, post a comment under this Journal Entry. Place the following pieces of information in the comment:

   The words “Contest Entry”
   The scene chosen
   The medium used
   A link to your gallery where you have placed the image; be sure to provide a link back to this contest page
   If you are entering a photo manipulation, a link back the stock provider's terms of use

As submissions are entered the will be placed into the Lady Merreth Contest II folder under LadyMerrethsAuthor favourites.

You may enter on behalf of a friend if you like.

If you have any questions about anything (contest rules, characters, etc.), please note me or ask them in a comment.

Please do not:

• Make changes to characters’ appearances/costumes
Character References

   There are character depictions for Lady Merreth, Lady Simma, and Lady Tiandraa in the references folder.  Each of these has been done by :iconsyoshiko:.
   In addition there are photo references for Lady Merreth, though please note that Lady Merreth has brown eyes, NOT blue as depicted in the photos
   *** Very Important *** Lady Merreth has an 'iconic' look. This look includes her outfit: hat, vest, gloves, breeches, boots and whip. Please be true to that look.  That look is illustrated in this amazing character reference by :iconsyoshiko::

Social Media

   Like the Tales of Lady Merreth FaceBook page if you are on FaceBook
