So I guess this is gonna be a thing :D You can enter one contest or the other or both if you think you can handle

NOTE: These are two completely different contests!!!

Contest #1 Overcoming Weaknesses (for the artists):



ENTRIES:

Can be found here

__________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION:

    This contest will be very much like the last Character Interaction Contest that I held in November. However, instead of being judged on the interaction, you will be judged on the way you are able to capture the pivotal moment in one of the character's lives where they overcome a weakness or character flaw or learn a lesson that might impact their character in a positive way.
For example:
  • What event might have caused Prism or Hot Head to become more humble?
  • What may have caused Cotton Candy to become better at working under pressure and not needing everything to be PERFECT
  • What may cause Dove to overcome her fear of unicorn magic?
  • When might Cloudy Skies become more confident in herself?
  • How might Amber cope with infertility?
  • When would T learn to become a leader rather than just a follower?
  • When might Fletcher learn to accept the fact that he's not perfect at everything?
  • When may Apollo learn to accept Nidra as a new member in the family
__________________________________________________________

These are just a few things. All of these characters have flaws and fears and obstacles and there are many different ways that they can overcome them. 
So when doing this, take on the approach of an MLP episode where a character overcomes a meaningful challenge like in "Pinkie Pride" when Pinkie realizes that she's not necessarily the best of the best and that there are others who are just as talented as she is or in "Green Isn't Your Color" when Rarity comes to terms with her jealousy or in "Putting Your Hoof Down" when Fluttershy learns to..... well..... put her hoof down.

SO DIG DEEP! Really think about all the small weaknesses that I've hinted at in all my drawings with dialogues. Almost every single one of those highlights a weakness or two in the character.

__________________________________________________________

In this contest you will be drawing at least ONE my next gen or NEXTnext characters/characters canon in the "kilalaverse" which includes:
And you can draw them interacting with one or more of the characters mentioned above, any of their family members (aka most of the characters in the show).These characters include:
  • Twilight Sparkle, Flash Sentry, Rarity, Spike, Pinkie Pie, Pokey Pierce/Royal Pin, Applejack, Caramel, Rainbow Dash, Soarin, Fluttershy, Cheerilee, Big Mac, Sweetie Belle, Button Mash, Apple Bloom, Pipsqueak, Scootaloo, Rumble, Fleur de lis, Fancy Pants, Thunderlane, Cloudchaser, Celestia, Discord, Luna, Supernova, Trixie, Cheese Sandwich, Azalea or Berry Vine
ANYWAYS, basically, you are drawing at the very least one character from the first list, interacting with another character or characters in the first or second lists. In your drawing, there must be at least two characters.  You can draw as many as you'd like as long as it's more than two. If this is confusing, don't hesitate to ask :) (Smile)

__________________________________________________________


RULES:
  1. You must have at least two characters interacting (one of them being from the first list) NOTE: Please limit yourself to the list. You have plenty choices. 
  2. Refrain from using OC's. And if you must add an OC, they cannot be a major part of the scene. As long as the focus on the characters in the lists above, you should be fine 
  3. You must have a dialogue in the description
  4. Traditional and digital art is allowed
  5. Bases are also allowed (but are not highly encouraged). And if you use them, credit them properly! (mention the base maker and link back to the base). Same goes for any sort of reference
  6. No NSFW
  7. You are allowed to submit a maximum of 3 entries but only one will win 
  8. Please title your entry as "Kilala97Contest#: (your own title)" The # is the entry number.  So, if you're submitting your first entry, you would title it "Kilala97Contest1: (your own title)".  If it is your second entry, then "Kilala97Contest2: (your own title)".  This is just to make things easier for me, and will help me organize the entries. Even if you are only entering once, make sure to put the number in anyways.
  9. Link all entries in the comment section and mention me in your description if possible
  10. Absolutely NO stealing art! No tracing, no recolors, none of that.  Try your very best to be as original with the drawing as possible
  11. All submissions must be submitted to deviantART. Do not just put it in Stash.
