I will choose the winner based on accuracy, presentation and originality.
*Accuracy - how accurately you've depicted my OCs
*Presentation - how well presented your creative work is
*Originality - how original/creative your creative work is
Mardelia is my ponysona, so she's roughly based off me. Her cutie mark captures what's most important to me: family and being a good and caring doctor. She's an ambitious and hardworking pony, and has had to overcome quite a few obstacles to get to where she is now - as evidenced by a missing chunk in her right ear. Mardelia is also quite sensitive and shy, so she likes to hide behind her long flowing locks and dark make-up. Her favourite colour is pink!
Mary-Joe is a valentine's pony who is sweet, caring and passionate. However, she can also become very sentimental and emotional at times. She takes a while to warm up to strangers but once you get to know her, you’ll come to realise that she’s a forever friend who’ll stay very true, honest and loyal to you. She’s adventurous and enthusiastic about most things and is not afraid to live her life to the absolute fullest.
Bliss is a happy, bright and optimistic pony full of hope and aspirations. She did not have a happy beginning and was often teased by others for being different due to her heterochromic irises. However, she's also an extremely resilient and strong pony and was able to blossom despite all this. Her cutie mark is a sunflower, which is famous for turning towards the sunlight.
Dusk is a quiet, aloof and "mysterious" pony, who generally enjoys solitude. He is often misunderstood as being hard-hearted, cold and ruthless. This is partly a coping mechanism and his way of protecting himself from all the evil he has seen and experienced in the world. In actuality, once/if you "unlock him", he is an extremely loyal, invaluable and passionate friend who wouldn't think twice about sacrificing his life for you. Little is known about him, as he has no family nor friends, but he is some sort of mercenary, as symbolised by the golden chain he wears around his neck.
With drawings involving Dusk, please design/add in his cutie mark and chest crest. This would contribute to the presentation and originality score.
Dusk cutie mark -
A stylized golden key with a snake wrapped around it (basically, the idea is that there is 'golden goodness' inside, but in order to unlock it, you have to get past this snake (the snake is not necessarily evil, just misunderstood).
Dusk chest crest -
A stylized tattoo/crest on his chest of a golden keyhole.
I will pay for shipping costs, but please be advised that the shipping would be via international Economy which is untracked and could take up to 10-25 working days to arrive its destination.
If you would like a tracked and faster shipping option, then you would have to help pay for a part of the shipping fee (part-payment would be about $20-30USD). This is generally via International Economy Courier which would take about 2-6 working days to arrive its destination.
Please also note that Christmas time is coming up, so there may be shipping delays which are completely out of my control.
If you have any further questions please feel free to comment below/note me!
Thank you all so very much again for all your support and good luck everyone!
