Do you guys like contests? Of course you do!
In order to celebrate reaching over 500 watchers, and just as a general thank you to all you lovely people for the faves and comments, I'm running my first contest! Now, I know the most common contest is a watcher giveaway, but I wanted to do something a little more interesting...So, what do I have to do?
Simple! Draw me your pony OC, upload it to DA and leave a link to it in this journal. Don't have an OC? Now's a good excuse to make one. The rules
- Only submit your own OC
- Only submit your own drawing
- Only submit a PONY OC
- Entries can be digital or traditional
- Please don't use a pony maker/generator. I don't want to see any pony recolours - we can do better than Hasbro, right?
- You don't have to be a watcher or share this journal to enter (though I'd appreciate it if you did
- You also don't have to draw a new picture for this contest - if you already have one, just submit that.Important stuff
First and foremost, this is a design
contest. I will NOT be judging you on drawing skill. This is to make it more fair for everyone. I encourage everyone to have a go, no matter your skill level.
I am highly unlikely to pick a neon/rainbow/sparkledog type OC or one that is overly complex (I don't mean to offend anyone, but since this contest is based on my own taste I just want to give people a heads up). Alicorns won't be chosen at all.
What I'm looking for is all to do with the design - colours that complement each other, a well thought out Cutie Mark and an interesting mane and tail design. I want to see ponies that look like they could step out the show. If you want to add accessories - go for it!The prizes!
There will be six winners total, one main winner, and five runners up. First place will win a custom plush of their OC made by myself, and each of the five runners up will receive a custom Parasprite plush, using the colour scheme of their OC.
I will however, need winners to pay for the shipping of their prizes. Sorry about that Deadline
I'll be accepting entries until the 1st of November, Australian Eastern Standard Time. That should give you all plenty of time to work on your entries.
As you may have noticed, I don't accept OC commissions at the moment, so this will be the only way to get an OC plush from me for a long time. So good luck to everyone who enters, and I can't wait to see your OCs!
