Description

...Because there aren't enough Dreamkeepers Harvest Festival pictures out there. This is my entry for the 2013 DK Halloween Contest. I'm entering it into the category for "Most Tedious." 

I want to first say a huge THANK YOU!!!! to everyone who graciously allowed me to use their OC's in this piece (credits down below). This piece wouldn't have been half as fun had I been forced to make up every character on my own. And to the creators Dave and Liz, should you happen to see this... I can only really apologize for what happened here. My only excuse for this is to point out this is what happens when you create awesome stuff and then let slightly unhinged individuals such as myself get their hands on it. :hmm: 

ALSO: As an added bonus to encourage you to stare at my artwork for long periods of time, I have hidden 18 harvest festival bead images in this drawing! All 18 are based off the symbols for the different contest categories (please visit www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/gall… for the 6 different symbols). The images can be found on anything; Dreamkeepers, buildings, actual beads, you name it! They do not all necessarily follow the color scheme on that link, but I made a bit of an attempt to keep them color-coordinated. You will need to download the image to see them all. I don't have a prize for those who find all 18 (I am poor), but I will note you a link to the answer key if you correctly identify all 18 in the comments section! =D

And now, without further ado, the fantastic folks who let me use their OC's. OC's were drawn in no particular order, and I did my best to show them doing something I thought the OC might do based on whatever images I could find online. Also please note that some costumes were changed or altered to fit the image, such as no armor, etc. I did my best to put as many OC's up front as a could. From left to right: "Maero" from :iconthe-fishman:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Ivy" from :iconivykirax:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Isura" from :iconisura--lizardoflust:, reference link: dreamhttp#/art/Refined-Sketch-… . "Isaac" from :icongraystripe77:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Lee" from :iconsupersorrel007:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Mandor Saval" from :iconsw1tchbl4de:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Skye" from :iconsilverdragon87:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Hiroku" from :iconezioauditore97:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Vyse" from :icondragonjuno:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Kyle" from :iconlord-kiyo:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Cohen" from :iconsketchysituation:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Tango and Erna" from :icontahutango:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Pyro" from :iconleokingdom10:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Ran" from :iconvanilla-creme:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Argadious" from :iconniloc1:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Lora" from :iconchocosarusrex:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Leviticus 'Stretch' Vyn" from :icondrayor:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… . "Caier" belongs to me. And last but not least, "Halcyon Adhil" from :iconkafelnikov:, reference link: dreamkeepers-fans.deviantart.c… .

Finally, Bast, Evzen, Grunn, Tinsel, Whip, the Indigo Twins, Bobby, Igrath, Vi, Damon, Woods, Bill, Mr. and Mrs. Lillie, Mace and Lilith belong to :icondreamkeepers: . Everyone else in the image I made up.

This image was drawn on 3 sheets of 11 x 17" 300-weight bristol, lined with Derwent pencils (a nod to the fact the DK books are done using pencils), colored in Adobe Photoshop CS5. The final image is comprised of 44 layers and a few too many hours of work. And now I must sleep.

EDIT: Eep! This... won?!?!?! Wow. Thank you soooo much yet again to everyone who graciously let me feature their OCs! Being allowed to feature everyone added volumes to this piece! Time to break out the root beer!
