Congratulations to :iconnazfx: Nazegoreng and :icontechnicalogical: Technicalogical! You both tied for first place in the community poll to be the third (and fourth) ponies that I will be vectoring with 25 votes each for your respective ponies, Glimmer Dust and Invert Sugar! Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

And with this final update, this contest has come to an end. One last congratulations to :iconfoxtaile: FluffyFeah, :iconjoieart: JoieArt, :iconnazfx: Nazegoreng and :icontechnicalogical: Technicalogical - you all have some interesting and varied characters and I look forward to making some vectors of them. :) Thanks again to everybody that participated in the contest, you all have some great ponies and I hope to do something like this again in the future. I don't have set dates for when these vectors will be completed as I'm doing them as time permits, but I'll post them to my gallery and notify the OC owners as their vectors are completed.

Have a great day!

Good afternoon! I am in the mood to do a bit of vector work and have some time to do so for once, but I want to make some custom characters created by fans rather than show ponies, so I'm holding a contest of sorts to make it interesting! All it requires from you is a submission of your OC, so if you want a show-quality vector of your character, read the details below! :)


STAGE 1
In the journal comments below, post an image of (or a link to an image of) your own original character. Please do NOT submit other peoples' characters, only your own. This art is simply a reference for me when creating your character, so be sure to choose one of good color and design quality to increase your chances of being selected and for better and more accurate end results.

Good evening!

Whew! So yeah, that was a pretty tough time trying to select the winners. I spent a lot of time going through them all over and over, to the point where I'm a day late announcing the winners. :P I wanted to sleep on it before making my final decision, but now it's time to announce the two winners, as well as the ten finalists for the community poll to select the third winner!

Congratulations to :iconfoxtaile: FluffyFeah and :iconjoieart: JoieArt! Their respective ponies Mint Breeze and Confetti Cake are the winners!

Now I want to stress that this doesn't mean that I consider all of the other contestant ponies inferior by any means - I had a very hard time narrowing it down to only two ponies. Heck, I had a hard time picking out the remaining ten to put in the poll. I wish I had the time to make even more vectors for them all. Perhaps I'll do another contest or something in the future. I commend and thank you all for entering this contest! I really enjoyed reviewing all of your wonderful characters and I hope that I'll be able to do some art of them some day if possible. :D

Anyhow - here, in order of submission, are the ten finalists for the community poll to select the third winner.

  1. :iconyoshiringo: YoshiRingo - Ringo
  2. :icontechnicalogical: Technicalogical - Invert Sugar
  3. :iconspaceisthelimit: Spaceisthelimit - Nightlock
  4. :iconlunem0on: greyamoon - Shadow Moon
  5. :iconnazfx: Nazegoreng - Glimmer Dust
  6. :iconkylestudios: KyleStudios - Kyle
  7. :iconcybiline: Cybiline -  Merlin
  8. :iconrhythm-is-best-pony: Rhythm-Is-Best-Pony - Cintia
  9. :iconxxukarixx: XxUkarixX - Lightning Lyric
  10. :iconsqueebun: ChibiKonata - Squeetania Fira

Please review each contestant pony and vote for your favorite pony at the poll here - POLL


The poll will run for three days, after which the third and final winner will be official declared. In the event of a tie, I'll vector those that tied, UNLESS like half the entries tie, then I'll probably run a followup poll or select it myself. We'll cross that bridge if and when we should come to it. Good luck everypony!

Note: I respectfully ask that nobody enlist their hordes of followers, should they have them, to go vote for them in the poll. This is unfair because not everyone has huge numbers of watchers that they can request to go vote for them and more importantly, it skews the poll when people blindly vote for their friends and not for the pony they personally like the most out of all the entries. If I find that somebody does this, I'll have no choice but to disqualify their pony.
