Contest - 41 Entries - Winners AnnouncedCONTEST CLOSED!Contest - 41 Entries - Winners Announced2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh gosh it was so hard to decide the winners but me and Obsiddy could only choose 1 each ;o;
I'm sorry for those who did not make it, the entries were so amazing and beautiful ;o;
Could the winners please note me asap to discuss payment options <3
First Place - $50 or 4000 (Paid)
Chosen by ValentineBites Why? because the moment I saw this piece the thing that caught my attention was the ice.
This is the perfect example of what she can do with her Ice powers. The whole thing is simply beautiful. The pose, the shading and the Bg is simple
and yet effective. Cryo's cold glare brings this piece together perfectly.
Second Place - $25 or 2000 (Paid)

So I had a really, really hard time picking the winners. There were so many
amazing entries ;u;
Thank you to everyone who entered, and congrats to the ones who placed!!
I fell in love with this piece when I first saw it. It's so emotional and beautiful.
The use of colors and the concept is just amazing.
The style and everything about this work is beautiful. I love the sketchy,
almost unfinished style of the piece. You captured her perfectly.
The watercolor technique in this entry is just beautiful, and I really do love
the character interaction, it represents the relationship well.
Because I just fell in love with so many of the entries, it was so
difficult for me to choose!
Here are a few entries that almost made the

Official Contest Information______
Contest Theme: Seisui Naito
This contest is dedicated to the first OC that I ever created, Seisui Naito. The Captain of my 11th Division alternate-universe of Bleach, he was one of the things that brought me to this website so many years ago. Without him, I would never have started my project. I owe him so much. He brought me here, helped me kick of a universe of writing that would see my skills improve over years, and introduced me to friends from around the world. I figure it's time to pay him back.

To kick us off, I’d like to get by a few little rules before we begin.

Good afternoon everyone! I hope everyone is doing groovy today How has your New Year been thus far?
Anyways, what is this journal sporting a lovely CSS by miontre about? Well, another contest! This contest will be different than the other contests because it won't just be focusing on a character(s) so much as it is to bring them to life
Now that the random introduction is out of the way, onto the good stuff
Draw characters from the R.I.N.G.S. universe engaged in action or combat!
My story has a lot of action and combat in it (even if I am not that good at depicting it ) so for this contest you are to draw them doing something action-y or combat related.
For example, you could have Hiromi jumping out of a
