|Update| :iconassassinsdance-oct: is off the shortlist. Thank you for supporting this OCT! |End|

Hello OCT followers! Today, I bring you news of a shortlisted OCT. :iconassassinsdance-oct: THE ASSASSIN'S DANCE needs only :bulletred: 4 :bulletred: to get it going. There is no audition required, only a character reference sheet. The tournament accepts comics, flash, & literature.  For more information on this tournament, please see our Upcoming OCTs (A-M) listing or the Shortlist.

Hey everyone. :wave:

We are working through a backlog of messages, including a few Classifieds, New OCTs, and Updates. If you don't see your OCT here, please don't think we've forgotten you. We're just trying to space our updates out a bit so that your event gets the attention it should. :)


Hello OCTFollowers!

Are you looking to improve your OCs? Do you need a push to get you down the path of drawing on a deadline?  Look no further than :iconoc-training:.

OC-training is a 13 week program that focuses on exercising drawing skills and developing OC personality and background. It also contains a lot of positive interaction between participants - fun, encouragement and in-depth feedback. Any reliable deviant is welcome. Second round starts this coming Monday 24th November 2014, but you can join in at any time. If you're interested in practicing with your character before you formally enter an OCT, check it out!

Hi, I'm the founder of the great :iconDreamyard-CarnivalOTC: (pardon for the misspelling) and I need one more judge!

Been in at least one OCT

Have Knowledge of Mythology

What is Dreamyard Circus? :

A place of magic and wonder, where all the memories and dreams of the human world collects. But something is wring, the human's memories are withering away by the minuet. If nothing is done soon, the amusement park will die. Will you solve the tragedy?

Are there any OCTs where superhero characters would be eligible for entry? I'm also interested in upcoming Pokémon or Digimon groups as well.

Hello, fellow OCT lovers!  I'd like to show you Dog-Eat-Dog-World, a gritty superhero OCT that is currently accepting auditions!  If you like tense, original OCTs at all, please check us out!  We currently have over three weeks left in our audition time; just enough time for an entry!  Thank you so much, and happy sketching! [Only posted this because I didn't see us on the 'Latest Updates' journal.  Don't mean to spam!]

Quick question: are animated entries ALWAYS supposed to be in a flash format? If not, is it generally discouraged? Because in order for me to use voices and sounds, I can only make avi files and share them via YouTube... unless it's possible to upload avi files.

I dunno. I'm a newbie.
