Edit 2: (Date extension until June 15th.)
So I did this contest last year and it was so successful that I just had to do it again. Though I have bumped the winning prize up a bit to $40 this time or 3,200 . and I understand that people usually have time frame issues, so that is why this contest will not end until June 15th.
What you have to do
Just like last year all you simply need to draw one or more of my OCs and submit it here on DA, unless breaks DA rules, then you must submit it somewhere else and send me the link or just send me the file via note. I will be making a little list below here with a reference image and a description of each of the characters below.

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!

CONTEST IS OPEN"IN THE EMBRACE OF WINTER"CONTEST IS OPEN3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each season brings a different experiences and emotions, different atmosphere, a different colour pallette.
Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a cycle of life-death-rebirth,
the inward journey, embracing darkness and silence.
Winter days are short, with long nights. The cold weather can make us sad and lethargic.
The season offers a sense of calmness and makes us feel peaceful.
The most romantic time of the year?
A snowy, frosty, cold world or rain and endless grey skies can be beautiful
but some people find that they become seasonally depressed as they receive less light in winter.
People feel tired and sluggish during winter. Too cold, gloomy, depressing?
Do you feel the winter blues or you enjoy the season?
Go back to your memories and keep your focus on your experience and emotions.
Show us your feelings about winter.
Show us your winter mood...now, in your past or childhood.

Demode Couture (There are so many links I could post that are already compiled and organized beautifully on Kendra VanCleave's site. Absolutely worth your time.) http://demodecouture.com/links/
The Costumer's Manifesto (cluttered but deep, lots of good links hidden away in the fray) http://www.costumes.org/
Wikipedia (surprisingly useful! Great for when you're trying to initially pin down a period.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Western_fashion

Alright pretty crazy chapter right there....

Hello, and welcome to my first contest! One of my characters has a birthday coming up and I decides I want to get more art for him, and what better way than by holding a contest? This contest will now be ending at the end of January, or when there have been at least 15-20 entries (this is a fairly big chunk of money after all).
To kick us off, I’d like to get by a few little rules before we begin.
I will be keeping all art submitted to me. You may not use a base for this contest. Any art theft will result in your removal

Looks like I have let my notes accumulate into a mountain ...
The notes I get generally fall into several common questions, which I'll answer here, as I don't have the time to personally answer every one. I am sorry about this; if I had the time, I would.
1) Commissions : I'm sorry, but I'm still tied up with on-going projects and I can't take on any more.
2) Using my art for blog, sigs, tags, etc : As long as it's personal use, go ahead. It would be nice if you could credit me.
3) Software and hardware use : Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Wacom Intuos 4.
Anything else and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.
