With autumn starting soon, and winter soon after I decided that that was an appropriate theme for the contest. It can either be represented through the background, or through the horse. If you are going to go with no background you must tie in fall or winter in the equine subject.
-Must be uploaded to dA
-Must follow theme
-Max 3 entries per account (no multi-accounting please)
-Can be an old submission, as long as it goes with theme and wasn't a collab, trade, kiriban, request, or commission
-Link must be posted in journal comments
-Must be 75x75-200x200 pixels
Judging: Overall, Effort, and Detail

Hollow Grove Livery Stables - White DecemberHARPG - Hollow Grove Livery StablesHollow Grove Livery Stables - White December1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hollow Grove Livery Stables, located in the small countryside town of Toradh, Ireland, is founded mainly on rescues and will continue to be a haven to nearly any desperate horse case that comes around. Starting with eleven horses, all of which had their own story (some more interesting than others), Hollow Grove hopes to achieve great things in both breeding and in Western competitions, showing that even forgotten horses have some potential.
Hollow Grove also offers riding lessons and trail rides for those who love horses but aren't into the competitive scene. Trail riding will always be at the heart of the organization, for that was how Hollow Grove initially started as a business.
I've been meaning to make an announcement about this, but *CSStables reminded me! Hollow Grove is going to be represented at #The-White-December event and would love to roleplay/feature you and your horse in some of the artworks tha
Adopting, Breeding, Registering & Owning a NWBAdopting a Norwegian WarmbloodAdopting, Breeding, Registering & Owning a NWB11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The only way to get your hands on one of these horses is to officially adopt one from adoptable sales, which are only going to be designed by myself. The purpose of this is not to make the breed "exclusive," but rather to ensure that colors and markings are to be kept natural-looking.
Adoptables can be any age, color, type, etc. So there will be a lot of variety in the Norwegian Warmblood stock, and you will be ensured a unique horse either way.
Also! You must have an active stable (not necessarily one registered with HARPG) in order to bid.
Tips for those bidding with art:
Your art bid will be viewed as a representation of how you will portray the horse while it is in your ownership. It will also be seen as a representation of how seriously you're taking the bid, i.e. how bad you want the horse to become yours.
The winner is not picked on who drew the prettiest picture, but rather picked based on how much effort and thought you pu

OC design contest - win points!I want an OC that can also be my icon character, and so I thought I would hold a design contest. ^^OC design contest - win points!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's very simple - draw and design me an OC! And why don't I just make it myself? Well, I've tried many times, but never found a truly "me" design, so I'm hoping your guys' imagination might help me out.
Deadline is June 15th 2013 at 8pm GMT+1/Copenhagen summer time.
Prize for winning design is 5,000 dA points.
I keep the right to extend the contest if there are too few entries. I also want you to be aware, that I might make some changes to final winner design, if I find it might suit be better that way, since I want it to be my OC for a very long time.
Some guides and rules:
1. Original art is much preferred, but lineart allowed.
2. Tracing will likely make me not choose your art ... I want to see more personality than the skill to copy ^^
3. I prefer something unnatural, so a bay pony won't make it.
4. I like horses, wolves, dragons, winged and horned animals, fantasy and all unnatural
