I've had this in stash for a while now & finally I decided to finish it !

    alright so the theme, i decided will be
    music & song lyrics. all you gotta do is pick a song and draw something that goes along with it.
    there is no limit in your imagination so go wild !! 
    the character you will be drawing is Damon
    REF | Damon 2015 by dogesaurImage by dogesaur
    if you want to you can draw his demon / devil form too !
    ( the ref is super old and needs some updates heh )
    so if you plan on drawing him PLEASE DONT DRAW THE LONG CLAWS
    or just don't draw claws at all aha + his front legs are canine !!!

    YES, yes you might draw him as an anthro as well. I don't mind at all
    though he doesn't have a ref of his anthro form, meaning EVEN MORE
    FREEDOM if you want.. otherwise you can just throw in some Assassin's Creed clothing.

    - -
    there's just a few and they're really simple so please stick so them!
    - max number of entries: 3
    - make sure to link the song in the description 
    - (optional) put lyrics on the picture
    - any kind of art is allowed !
    - make sure to tag me in the description. all you gotta do is put @ in front of my username
    - keep in mind that i will NOT leave comments on entries. this way you can't assume who'll win !

    - -
    in case i'll have more money when this ends, i'll raise them.

    1st place:
    - 20$ / 2000pts
    - shaded fullbody
    - pixel
    - custom design (not 100% yet)

    2nd place:
    - 10$ / 1000pts

I'd appreciated it if you shared the journal !! it's not needed but it would help a lot.

If you need any additional info, or have any kind of a question, let me know !


Journal Entry: Sat Nov 28, 2015, 1:03 PM

I thought I would start this soon so when the holidays are over the contest could end :nod:
before I start about the contest there is something I have to say : I am not in the mood for ponies , I haven't been for a very long while
and therefore i have decided to not include them in the character options for the contest
im very sorry if that was what you were hoping for x(

on to the contest !

I asked what people wanted , and like the title says , it will be a holiday contest  (christmas contest) ! a lot of people suggested it , so I cant really give credit , but y'all are coolio B)

make something with at least one of my OCs (list down below) with a christmas theme
This something can be either a drawing or a written story (or maybe crafty ? I dont have a lot of money to pay for sendingpayment , so I dont think thats the best idea , since I would of course love love to have it hehe)

You can , of course, include other characters (like your own ! I would love that :D)

you can enter as many times as you want , no limit . I would appriciate it if you could advertise the contest ^^
and like always (because i think its stupid when its a rule) ; you don't need to watch me for this , do whatever ya feel like bro

please upload the entry on deviantart so i can add it to the collection of contest entries

I always get these questions so I thought I would answer them right away
i judge on creativity ! It doesnt need to be big and wowzers and stuff , if its fun and when the characters stay true to themselfs then I would already love it man (I would love everything anyway , but shh)
More I cant come up with atm , sorry :0

three prizes , there will be more if the entries are increasing

first prize
- 1000 points
- 2 commissions
- a groovy dance move

THE CONTEST ENDS AT 03 - 01 - 16
the third of january


character list
Characters personalitiesupdated with new character (the cat girl) huzzah
I got more questions then i would thought for my human characters , so i thought i would write down their personalities so people can look it up right away instead of waiting for me to responde : )

from left to right >>
known as Captain
real name Christopher Clint
age 28
specie half human half merman (mother was a human , father was a merman, he has webbed feet because of this. according to himself he can also hold his breath for a very long time)
used to be Assistance of the captain , when he died he got the ship , all of the crew members left making him in search for more
personality Was born as a leader, commanding others around, but he means well. He is kinda loud and a happy guy, but can get annoyed easily, and having an argument is something he does often. He is always right , just remember that.
likes family is very important to

Good luck to everyone, and again, thank you for supporting me c:
Alright so i'm not going to talk around this or mumble or make a whole paragraph about this, it's as easy as just putting it out there so that's what i'm doing. I really just don't feel like typing out a whole paragraph for this.

I'm transgender to Male.

I don't want to be Agender anymore and i don't want to be a Female in real life anymore (I never fully got people to understand the term Agender..) 

I want to be a male, i feel like a male, i've got nothing else to say.

Transitioning to a boy will be a looong road and as of currently the trip is going very slow, but i've got people around me to help and support me! And i'm sure all of you support me in this, right? I'm sure everything will be good in the end and i'll get all of the results i ever wanted :'''') 

I'm still Eccel. I'm still that one nerdking you all like, just.. Male :")
The only thing that will be sliiightly changing is the design for my Persona, but that is all really ahah.

So that means i would love if you all from now on used He/Him/His on me ♥ I get if you have to get used to it and get out of the They/Their/Them habit, but please do try ;u;

Yeah.. Uhm that's it? c'':

Thank you all for just, reading this tiny journal and hopefully understanding and supporting me c': ♥

The Twelve Days of Christmas [OPEN]

Sat Nov 28, 2015, 6:52 PM by Fayren:iconfayren:
image by Loki-Ryuu

December was fast approaching, and Mayor Miya was hard at work preparing for the holiday season. She wanted to do something special for the townsfolk of Ivywood- something to give them the happiness that they gave her.

After much thought and planning, she'd decided to contact the Voyager Salem for a little help... And he was happy to oblige.

"I know it's not something you'd normally wear..." Miya said, a hint of hesitation. "But I think the townsfolk will like it!"

Salem stood in the freshly ironed Santa costume, sleepy but accepting his fate. "So... I just get the wishlists, read them, and go out and see if I can go find what they want, right?"

Miya nodded cheerfully. "Yes! I know some Pokemon are a little tough to find, but just do your best!"

The Voyager nodded in response, giving a sleepy wave before heading out to collect the lists.

Welcome to the Twelve Days of Christmas, trainers of Ivywood! Mayor Miya and Voyager Salem are in cahoots... Planning to try and fulfill your wishlist!

For each of the days of December 1st to December 12th, Salem will complete one lucky trainers wish! But even though Mayor Miya and Salem are trying their hardest, some things are just too hard to find! Because of this, wishlists containing the following will not be eligible:

- Legendary Pokemon
- Shiny Pokemon
- Special Pokemon
- Vulpix
- Eevee
- Growlithe
- Shinx
- Ralts
- Riolu
- Zorua
- Furfrou
- Shiny Potions
- Pinkan Berries
- Salon Vouchers
- Second Character Vouchers
- Evolved Pokemon
- ... Secret Bases, Salem can't bring you a base
- Eggs
- Mega Stones

Mayor Miya and Salem express their most sincere apologies!

Now I know what you're thinking- "how exactly will Salem know what we want, Fayren?!"

Luckily, Mayor Miya has prepared a step-by-step guide!

Mayor Miya's Guide to Wishlist Success

1. Write your wishlist! Small letters are easy to lose, so your trainer must write 5 sentences in their wishlist expressing their favouite part of the holiday season! If your trainer doesn't celebrate the holidays, they can also talk about their favourite thing that happened this year! This wishlist should be written not to Mayor Miya or Salem, but to Santa!

2. At the bottom of your wishlist, CLEARLY state one thing your trainer put on their wishlist! This can be any Pokemon or item not listed above.

3. Paste and submit your wishlist in a reply to the featured comment! This comment is the Mail Box, so if you do not post your wishlist there, it won't be mailed to Mayor Miya! And if that happens, she can't tell Salem what to find!

4. Wait! Each day from the first to the twelfth, a wishlist will be randomly selected to be fulfilled! Santa's busy preparing for Christmas, so Salem will deliver your gift in his stead!

5. You can only submit one list per user, not per trainer! And only win once!

6. Lists are drawn beginning on December 1st at an unspecified time- so get your lists in now!


Day 1: A Pidgey in a Pear Tree

Day 2: Two Tirtouga Pidoves

Day 3: Three French Starlys

Day 4: Four Calling Chatots

Day 5: Five Golden Klefki

Day 6: Six Altarias Laying

Day 7: Seven Swannas Swimming

Day 8: Eight Miltanks Milking

Day 9: Nine Bellossoms Dancing

Day 10: Ten Ponytas Leaping

Day 11: Eleven Kricketots Piping

Day 12: Twelve Poliwhirls (Belly) Drumming
