I'm hosting a contest for my original characters that's going until July 15th. Anyone who wants to enter needs to


1) favorite this journal

2) share this journal using a journal on your profile and tag up to three people who may be interested in competing.

3) leave a comment with the link to your journal and typing the word "Muzvil" to prove that you complied. I know that sounds like a silly word to use, but screw it. It's my contest.


1) Any form of art is welcome.

2) It must be new work. I know not many people have made pictures of my OCs, but I'm putting this rule in just in case since it's a common rule for contests.

3) Absolutely NO NSFW or lewd content. Please keep things rated G/PG

4) Keep true to the characters' outfits and general appearance, though there are some exceptions.


1st Place - $100

Character Redesign Contest 2,000 POINTS PRIZEHello everyone! I am hosting a character redesign contest for one of my characters I made very very very long ago. I found this old drawing I did of her on Paint and I was like wow she had a lot of potential but she lacked something. For main dragon OCs I drew often back then I had Harmony, WhiteWind, and this dragon here was named Violet (yeah how creative) She was meant as a villain to my other dragons but I never worked on her design or character development further. I lost all art of her except this piece I dug up from my stash, and I must say I'm not a huuuge fan of her like this, I'm also very unmotivated to redo her completely so here is where you come in! I'm hosting this contest to redo her and then use her as my own.I probably made this like 7 years ago so the art and anatomy/structure/colour scheme is cringey to me. ,My art is more improved so obviously I want a good quality character to draw. (example of my newer work below(not my character)),HOW TO ENTER!-Make a journal about this contest and link back to BOTH my profile and this journal in it and tag me in it so I may see, wouldn't hurt to rave about me to your friends uwu-Watch me if you haven't already-Favourite 5 pieces of my art in my gallery-Submit your art piece of the new character design and in the description tag me and link back to both my profile and the journal I made-Art must be submitted before the deadline!That's it!Now. ****PRIZE IS 2,000 deviantArt points!****(Or equivalent in actual $$ if winner prefers via paypal) ****THE CONTEST WILL END FEBUARY 5TH 2021****WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR -You may change her design in any way, but please keep the original in mind as a sculpt-I rather her have a similar colour scheme to what I made her with just not as ugly LOL (don't make her red or something else silly)-I want you to come up with a new name for her! I rather not basic names like ... u_u Violet, or Sarah, be creative! I'm open to ancient sounding names! BONUS if the names originate from somewhere or mean something! Please add that if so!-I really love her long horns and tail blades... you can change them but I really like it, maybe make them similar or at least anatomically correct! haha -I like the fur hair but I welcome traditional crests (neck/back spikies) as well. Both are OK!-You can change and/or add accessories! -You can change her overall structure, meaning her entire shape, want to take away her front legs or change her face structure or somethin' ? Go ahead! -In your art or the description I want you to give her POWERS! she is a evil dragon! so think evil dragon thoughts! Does she do necromancy? Does she have dark aether fire that melts skin off of bones? who knows! be creative! The more powers the funner she becomes!-A short backstory! I never made one for her. -_- Be creative on her origin its completely open minded!-Interesting things about who she is! Have fun with this-Can change eyes and eye colour too if you wish!-Be creative! My goal is a non mary-sue dragonRULES -Art style does not matter-Art talent level does not matter so beginners welcome!-Don't worry I am looking for full heart and creativity!-NO bases allowed, meaning you must DRAW the character and use no pre drawn lines to colour in from someone else.-Please no begging or guilting for me to let you win-If you act immature (whining or complaining) during the contest or after the results then I may block you-New watchers are welcome-The art/reference you make of her can be as detailed or as simple as you like, if simple then add more details about her to the description!-No headshots please! Must be full body.-Prize is not negotiable-If you don't win please don't be upset :C You did your best-If you don't win you can keep or use the design however you like!-I may even want to buy the design off you if you didn't win but I liked it!-If you win you may not keep or use the design-Be as creative as you would like to be with both her design AND biography-I will be adding all design entries to the final result journal and put a link in this journal to that one! -All entries artist will be tagged under their entry art in that journal-Have fun and goodluck to all entires!-I will be actively participating in the contestnebu-ta
