OC Design Contest, Title Contest, and Giveaway

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 11, 2012, 6:04 PM
EDIT: I've recieved 6 entries so far.  Just need 4 more entries or else the contest gets cancelled. Remeber the deadline is December 31st, 2012. Fav the journal even if you don't join to spread the word and be qualified for the giveaway.

A friendly reminder.  Only about another month left until all these closed, but no entries in my first contest.  If there aren't 10 entries, it'll be cancelled.  Even if you're not planning to join, faving this journal entry so others can see it will be a great help.  In fact, to enter my giveaway you just fave my journal so why not do it anyway. ;)

Hey guys.  So I have a couple things I want to get done so I'm holding two contests and a giveaway. :eyes: Hopefully you could tell from the title. :stare: If not, now you know.

OC Design Contest:

For those who have been following my stories, particularly my long ones, there's a certain character I would love help designing.  It's David, my dear A.I., from my unfortunately named novel in progress A.I. (That'll be fix soon enough. >: ))  Since he's an A.I., he's gotta have a robotic body which I have no clue what it should look like so this is where you creative people come in.

The story can be found here: metarex12.deviantart.com/galle…

What I want to see in David's design:
:bulletorange: I don't want a human form! >.< And what I mean is like in Terminator where the robots appear to be human with using fake skin or in Chobits.  Has to look like a machine.
:bulletorange: Has to have two legs with feet, two arms with hands, a body, and a head. This is to make sure the designs have a floating robot or whatever people come up with that doesn't have these.
:bulletorange: Eyes perferably either one, two, or three.  Anymore and I think he'll look weird. O.O
:bulletorange: Color.  Please keep it to a minimum.  I don't want he to be this multicolored robot that can be spotted a mile away.  Try to keep to gray or silver like the typically robots usually have.
:bulletorange: The rest is up to you decide.  Pretty much open after all that.

Rules:
:bulletorange: Entries must include a link to this contest article in the artist's comment.
:bulletorange: Entries must be drawn specifically for this contest, submitted to dA on or after October 27, 2012. (Giving you time to think about it or read up on my story if you need to.)
:bulletorange: Entries must adhere to dA's Submissions and Etiquette policies.
:bulletorange: 2 entries per deviant; collaborations are allowed.
:bulletorange: NO TRACE NO COPY, 100% your artwork.
:bulletorange: Winners will be decided on how creative the design is.
:bulletorange: Deadline: December 31st, 2012

Note: There has to be at least 10 entries or this contest gets cancelled.

Title Contest:

This is a way to solve my novel title problem. (I mentioned in earlier in my other contest. >: D) Hopefully.  As you know my poor novel has a bland general name: A.I.  Nothing midly eye grabbing or interesting enough to make people want to read it.  I've been trying to think up a good title, but unfortunately I couldn't come up with any.  Some people were nice enough to provide suggestions which I will list below, but I would still like a couple more before choosing one that I think works best with my piece.

Summary (This is to help you get a good idea of what the story is about if you don't want to read it):
Many years after the supposed apocalypse of 2012, the surviving humans are trying to adapt to survive and managed to revert to the way they were before the apocalypse; however, a group of naturalists are attacking governments because they believe the current state of things will get worse as many animals and plants have been steadily disappearing. Save Our World (SOW) is the organization set off to break down the government and create a new one so the U.S. government creates an A.I. to stop them, but it seems to have its own ideas about what should be done.

The story can be found here: metarex12.deviantart.com/galle…

Rules:
:bulletorange: No entry limit per deviant, but please be creative.  I don't want common names like the one I currently have. >.<
:bulletorange: Please have it make sense.  I don't want it to be completely random so if you have a good reason, please tell me.
:bulletorange: No cheating.  You can't use any names used in the story like Save Our World or acronyms like SOW.  I want it something you thought up, not something you found in my story unless you have a good arguement to convince me otherwise.
:bulletorange: Also, no cheating.  Don't copy other people's ideas or reword them unless you have a good arguement to convince me otherwise.
:bulletorange: Winners will be decided by poll and me, Metarex12. Don't have your friends vote for your title so you can win.  I want an honest opinion on what title appeals to people the most.
:bulletorange: Deadline: December 31st, 2012

Suggested Titles:
Save Our World
Crack in the Plastic Sky
The Lonely Heart
