    Theme Does the artist take advantage of the theme, or is the vision unfitting? /10%
    Execution Does the artist display the design in an effective manner, or is it hard to tell what is what? Are artistic techniques used effectively to make the character interesting, or does the style deteriorate the concept? Is the appearance of the design objectively pleasing, or is it of low quality? /25%
    Concept Does the design offer a new creative approach, or is it generic and cliché? Does it have character, or is it just another boring design? Does the design make sense and fit the description, or is it necessary to read the title to understand? /40%
    Realism Does the design balance, or are the proportions impractical? Is the anatomy or construction correct, does it allow the character to move as it should, or is functionality disregarded entirely? /25%
    • 75 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 25 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.

    I'm not sure "on and about" actually means anything in that context. Change the description and I can approve it.

    so is the theme restricted to like, the mainstream giants?(the one on the contest preview for example) or are we allowed to make something like a water or airborne creature as long as its a humongous being?

    Not at all. The preview is just for the 'show', an example if you can think of. Creativity is greatly encouraged.

    Haha, this should be good. Can't think of a Troll "giant", though, so I'm already checked out. xD

    //EDIT// Wait, what about a humongous Troll walking mojo-statue, patterned after the Loa and animated by nefarious hexes? Alright, clocking back in. :p

    EDIT: Oh, so we don't have to use backgrounds? Awesome. I think i should go with the character only.

    A gigantic moose?

    A GIGANTIC MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    But seriously, can I draw like a God, a Colossus, a Demonic Ovelord, how broad is it exactly? Is it restricted to gigantic humanoids? It says being. Isn't it too broad then? I can basically draw anything and I just have to multiply the size by X. Not complaining, just asking before I get into it.

    I think as long as it's a living humongous(6-7 stories tall or more maybe) being, it should be fine.
