А что означает ошибка при попытке добавления в конкурс?

"An error occurred during submission of Star Wars Winter Olympics. - Submission would exceed the per-folder limit of 2 deviations every 7 days"

При первой попытке добавления ничего не выдавало, но и девиация не добавилась...

Или прием на работ на конкурс закончен?

Картинку на конкурс нужно добавлять в папку в разделе фавы. 
Sangrde Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Oh where does it say the character should be full body or half body?? I don't see that on the description on the journal...

I've been working on this work since the beginning of summer as a gift for my mother and it matches your contest description!
I was wanting to submit the finish work but I do not know if the creature is fantastical enough.

I submitted the creature by itself last week as a teaser to my upcoming work. Here is a link:

Is the creature fantastical enough for your wonderful contest?

If not I'll probably start another piece- but if it is I'll submit the whole work (which  is accompanied by a human) later this week!
Thank you for your precious time and awesome contest! I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Mirianes Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well... the creature wished to be more fantastical. ;) But let it be the following way - finish the picture and show the result and we'll decide. 
HeatherSchoff Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2013  Hobbyist
Thank you for your response! I decided since you would like it to be more fantastical that I'll go with my other idea for the contest!
I placed this finished piece into your favorites instead, in hopes that it'll be chosen to be in your beautiful gallery!
Here is the finished piece to show the results:
Thank you for your precious time and I look forward to having a piece soon if all goes to plan!
Mirianes Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nice picture! But it is mostly head to shoulders portrait, the creature is too little, first of all you study the woman's face only after that pay some attention to the creature. It is a contest dedicated to fantasy creatures so the creature must take at least 25-30% of the picture. And the humanoid must be half length or full body portrait. I'm sure, you can do another piece of art right for this contest. 
HeatherSchoff Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Hobbyist
Yea, I thought about it after I had asked and realized I had a few other ideas that were more fitting!
Thanks again! :)

Wait, so you need a picture with 2 characters and one of them has to be a fantasy being. Do they have to be "creatures", or can they simply be a fantasy race?
Mirianes Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It is said in the rules "Create a picture including any fantasy , fantastic or mythological creature that must be necessarily  accompanied by human or humanoid . Creature must be 80 %  animal. Mermaids , centaurs , werewolves, nagas and all others like that considered to be humanoids".
