Well, it looks like there's enough interest to warrant going ahead with this, so here are the details of my art contest!

*   *   *

PRIZES:

1st Prize: A single-character, full-color (Photoshop) pic drawn by me, of whoever / whatever you like. Minimal background.

2nd Prize: A cleaned-up (inked) drawing of your character.

3rd Prize: A sketch of your character.

Winners will be chosen by me, with the input of blitterbug and my SO, Robbie, who has no artistic biases whatsoever, which makes him an -excellent- judge. ;)

*   *   *

DETAILS:

Entries should depict my anthro duck character, Zakiya. Beyond that, pose, details, style, theme, and any extra characters are entirely up to you. Please scroll down for character info.

The competition officially opens on APRIL 1ST and closes on APRIL 30TH (my birthday is April 8th, so I figured April would be a fun month to hold this comp), although if you come up with something before then, you're more than welcome to submit it, and it will be counted. You can enter however many times you like.

Winners will be judged within one week of the competition's close.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO NOTE ME IF YOU SUBMIT AN ENTRY! :) I wouldn't want to accidentally miss anyone's!

*   *   *

CHARACTER INFO:

Follow the links, guys - they've got everything you need to know, and reference pics galore.

Zakiya: furtales.com/1stavenue/charact…

I LOVE seeing pics of her with her 'signifigant other' (for want of a better word), Darrell, who belongs to my flatmate and best bud, blitterbug. His info is also available on a tidy lil' page. Ain't we girls organised? ^_^

Darrell: furtales.com/silvermoth/charac…

Good luck to all! Gentlemen (and ladies), start your pencils. :) :)

two Questions

1) What kind of duck is she?

2) You didn't list any favorite activities/hobbies she has. Does she have any?

She's not really based on an existing duck species. Think of her more as a member of a species that -evolved- from ducks. There's a variety of colors and patterns, rather like humanity's races, but they can all interbreed. Her beak is uncommonly straight because of her father's race, actually. Essentially, just think 'generic anthro duck' with silvery feathers that have a faint touch of warmth / tan.

*grins* At one point, her favourite hobby was maneating. *grin* She plays the violin, but very privately; it's a very personal thing to her. She also likes reading. Eventually she becomes a schoolteacher, which is downright ironic considering what a wild youth she had. If you want really indepth character info on her, try this link: [link]

The main profile I provided was an artist's profile, essentially for people who just want to draw her. The link I just gave you, however, is more like a writer's profile. VERY in-depth. I hope it helps!

It's really awesome to see someone taking an interest in the personality of the character they're drawing. ^____^
