The contest is closed for entries and I have decided the deadline for all deviation entries to be October 4th, good luck! Thank you to those who are competing!! PLEASE DON'T ABANDON THE CONTEST WITHOUT LETTING ME KNOW YOU DON'T WANT TO TAKE PART ANYMORE... please, I'd really rather you tell me than just leaving unexpectedly... thank you for understanding ;w; :heart:

LOOK AT BOTTOM OF PAGE TO SEE CHARACTERS YOU CAN DRAW :heart:


Hello guys and gals! I've been pondering this for quite some time now and well, since I do not contribute with any art of my own to DA, I'd thought I'd contribute in another type of way to really show my appreciation and love for this wonderful community! I'm thinking a real, big money prize with a core membership alongside it, you'll need a PayPal account for this or I can give it to you in Deviantart points instead! :la: :la: :la:

Okay so I'd like the contest to be based around the best drawings of Nova, Liara and their family! Check out my collection to get a better view of these characters, I have a few uploaded to my gallery as well! We have Nova, Liara... their cubs; Thiago, Maya and Dawn... Nova's parents; Alika and Mwenye... Nova's Brother's; Tian, Akili and Makosa! Just to be clear, you can only submit one deviation. You can draw one character, two of them or even more if you want, its up to you who you want to draw for the deviation!

I figured out what I'd like the prizes to be, as well for the runners up at 2nd, 3rd and 4th place

1st place will get; $50 or £50 plus 12 month core membership

2nd place will get; $25 or £25 plus 3 month core membership

3rd place will get; $15 or £15 and a 3 month membership

4th place will get; $10 or £10 and a 1 month membership


Please feel free to share this journal as I want to make this known to all my friends and possible artists who would like to join!! I will not start this contest until I have a fair number of contestants as it would be far too easy to win those lovely lovely prizes :D :heart:

Just to be clear, I'd appreciate it if you kept your comments in the comment section for this journal IF you're wanting to participate as I will need to know! Thank you so much guys, I'm getting a positive response already, I greatly appreciate it! I will keep you updated on everything :heart:

Of course Tyra, I mean.. I really haven't had alot of attention contest wise so even if I have closed off entries, accepting one person won't hurt... I think the main problem I've had is people saying they would like to join but then completely ignoring everything else said and forgetting about the contest :( :huggle: :heart:

NovaTheLion97 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2017
I don't at the moment, all I have is the collection, "The Nova Collection" but its probably a very good idea to make folders for each character, I'll work on that as soon as possible :aww: :) :heart:

OK so one other question: Is there an age difference between Nova and his brothers or are they all from the same litter?
Reply
:iconnovathelion97:
NovaTheLion97 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2017
Yes, Nova is about 2-3 years older than them, Tian is the youngest, Akili and Makosa are from the same litter :aww: :heart:
