Character Design Contest!CHARACTER DESIGN CONTESTMore Like This
We are finally launching our Character Design Contest!
I have been wanting to do this for a while now, something that’s a lot of fun where it gives you a chance to use your creativity and art skills to win awesome prizes!
In this contest, you get to design a character based off ANY key or piece of jewelry we have made. It can be based off one in our DA gallery, one in our etsy shop, or one that has already sold from our shop. It does not have to be a key, it can be anything we’ve made.
Anyone can enter, worldwide. Digital and traditional art accepted. It can be a fully painted picture or line art. Other media, such as clay/ sculpting or costume making, are acceptable as well.
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING

pouring out gold and poetry,
ancient cave paintings splashed across my vertebrae,
or the secret to immunity brewing
in the cauldron of my hips.
maybe you wouldn't find anything.
i cannot grow rings, after all,
and i am no queen.

i will head down to the river with a saw
slung over my shoulder and
