:star: THE CHARACTERS :star:

Ever: Padro Stallion
339 Everything That Sparkles by casinuba
Not to play favorites, but this guy is getting a lot of my attention lately. :XD: I love seeing artwork of him! Optionally, he can be drawn together with Whisper...

Whisper: Padro Mare
#7054 Whisper in the Willows by casinuba
...because this girl is too cute.

Viggo Jerico Callaway: GSD
Jerico [ref] by casinuba
I...have a lot of dog characters (or human turned dog characters, in this case) and this fellow isn't the one I expected to include here, but I managed to settle on his design, so I figured, why not. :shrug:
He's probably the most versatile in how he can be drawn. He's a sly, charismatic little jerk, with a fondness for getting into sticky situations and daydreaming about flying.

Tigerm: Plushie Kitty
Tigerm [ref] by casinuba
I tried to include some variety in the characters I chose (I have a lot of equine characters) and Tig is my only kitty character, so...she is kinda included by default. :XD:

Other characters you can draw:

I may add better references for these babies later:

:bulletblack: Blas and Lemondrop (relationship: undecided)

Yeah, I understand. I still need to do my full drawing prizes...I've got lines done but again, I've been getting so many first priority commissions lately that they keep getting pushed back ><

I might try. No guarantees, though. I'm not the best at drawing horses, but Ever is so pretty. <3 If I have time, I'll totally draw him.

Give it a try (if you do have time, of course)! Practice brings improvement! And I'm judging more on effort and creativity than ability. Besides, I like your art. :D

Do we actually draw them or can we do recolors of lines?

No lines recolors, sorry. :( I want to see your work! :D I'm not judging so much on ability as effort and creativity. :)

That being said...tracing stock photos is okay for this contest, as long as the stock used allows tracing and, most importantly, credit is given!

I'll be entering too, but it may take me a while to choose between your characters as I'm not used to characterizing such realistic styled animal characters XD I may do the cat and draw it as a furry with one of my furries that i'm currently working on ;P
