Hello members, group staff, all of us. This's my first blog entry as a New Founder of :iconshippuuden-club:
I think that I've never introduced myself. Well, my ID is :icondebbieblack: and I was selected for the last founder, to be the New Founder of this group. I don't know anything about being founder, I believe... But I'll try to put all in order and I'll help everyone to do the impossible for being good with each other. :) Groups must be for share art, great moments and to meet people, so I'll do the best to make it possible n__n

And now, time to announce a Contest ! :D

The group :iconhidashikagroup: is holding a new contest to celebrate both Shikamaru's birthday and the first year of that group's existence. They're placing the two events into one, with two competitions, which both are available to enter to each participant.

Competition One: Participants are asked to draw or write an entry featuring Shikamaru's birthday.

Competition Two: Design a new icon for the group to use for one year to celebrate the group's 1 year birthday.

Prizes: Memberships, points, and fanfictions. (More prizes are sure to come)

Deadline: September 22nd at 11:59pm

Shikamaru's Birthday Contest


This theme is very easy and I'm leaving the interpretation up to all the participants. Simply draw or write an entry involving Shikamaru having his birthday celebrated. There is one condition to the theme, it must also have Hidan in it as well, but does not have to be limited to Shikamaru and Hidan, but I will not accept any other pairing than HidaShika. It can involve a surprise party, a planned party, gift giving, cake, or anything that involves the theme of birthdays.

1. You must be a member of this group to enter.
2. Must be 100% your art, and made specifically for this contest. That means, no manga or anime edits, no use of bases, and DEFINITELY no stealing of art that isn't yours! Entries can be digital, traditional, fanfics, or doujinshi/comics.
3. You may submit one entry per category...categories being fanart, fanfics, and doujinshi/comics. Submitting more entries increases your chances of winning, however, only one of your pieces may win a place.
4. All entries must be at least rated T, nothing mature. Meaning while there can be full on sex scenes here. I think you get the picture.
5. Please write in the artist's comments of your entry that your deviation is for this contest.
6. Submit your entries to the "Current Contests/Events" folder.
7. You have until the very end of September 22nd, meaning you have until 11:59pm Central Time to turn in your entry. I will not be extending the deadline, unless absolutely necessary.
8. Voting will take place by poll this time. The rule of no recruiting votes still stands (meaning you cannot ask ANYONE for votes), also entrants may vote, but to be fair, not for themselves.


First Place:

~ 3 month premium membership to dA, and a sculpty chibi head keychain charm of Shikamaru (like this one:) from :icongingersnap87:
~ Fanfic from :iconanimewiccan725:
~ One Shot Fanfic from :iconnomnomkakashi:
Second Place:

~ 1 month premium membership to dA from :icongingersnap87:
~ Fanfic from :iconbluryoutlines:
~ 1 chibi sketch of up to 3 characters from :iconsazukaxdeidara4ever:
~ One Shot Fanfic from :iconnomnomkakashi:
Third Place:

~ 300:points: from :icongingersnap87:
~ One Shot Fanfic from :iconnomnomkakashi:

(More prizes might be added, so if you want to donate a prize to this competition, please comment here with each prize you're willing to donate, and to which place winner.)

New Group Icon Contest:


To celebrate #HidaShikaGroup's first birthday, which is on August 26th, I wanted to have a brand new group icon made that will be in use until the group's next birthday. I could have created an icon myself, but I wanted to let the members have a chance to participate and have their icon be the group's new icon.

1. You must be a member of the group to enter.
2. The size of the icon must adhere to dA's group icon allowances. Meaning the icon may only be 50 pixels in height, and 100 pixels in length. Also very important is that the icon be 30 kb or smaller. Any bigger in file size and dA will reject it.
3. Most important is that the icon have the words "HidaShikaGroup" on the icon, but having that alone will probably not win you this competition. You need to made it neat and interesting, so as to draw in more members. So I'd suggest also including Hidan and Shikamaru on the icon.
4. Unlike the last contest, you may use anime or manga images of Hidan and Shikamaru, or you can be really creative and make an icon from your own artwork (existing or new).
5. The icon can be stationary or animated. It can be images, art, or pixel art, but must adhere to the conditions above.
6. State in your artists comments that your icon is for our New Group Icon Contest, and give the group permission to use the icon should your entry win.
7. Again no use of other's artwork, it can only be yours or image from the anime or manga.
8. Submit your icon entry to the "Current Contests/Events" folder.
9. You have until the very end of September 22nd, meaning you have until 11:59pm Central Time to turn in your entry. I will not be extending the deadline.
10. For this contest, I will be the one picking which entry will be the group's new icon. I will be choosing based upon which one looks the most the neat and cleanest, but also makes an impact. I will not consider entries that do not follow the instructions above.
11. You may both enter the Shikamaru Birthday Contest as well as this one.


(there will only be one winner here)
~ Winning icon will be the group's new icon for one year.
~ 100 :points: from :icongingersnap87:
~ 50 :points: from :iconanimewiccan725:

Hope to enjoy it ! n__n

If you want to put all in order,you could begin with accepting the submissions on the gallery.
My pic expired and it's not the 1st time when it happens.Why that?

Sorry for that. But I'm not the only one who accept submissions .-. I'm in charge for a number of it and the others co-founders are in charge for the other part ~ So, you can upload it again, and if it's on my way I'll accept it xD That is all ~ I hope it won't expire again.

I know that not all the member staff make their duty...
But in this case I think that would be more fair to propose you my pic;)
