Winners have been announced!
Draw my Character - Contest Winners!!It is with a heavy but joyful heart that I bring the contest to a close. For months I've been recieving wonderful art pieces from you guys every day, and each time my heart has been filled with warmth and joy. I'd like to thank every one of you for your entries, you're all so incredibly talented and picking winners have not been an easy task, not for me or my judges. I never thought my contest would blow up this much and I'm grateful for the over 250 entries I've recieved <3
I wanted to showcase all of the entries with you, so that everyone that has entered gets a notification about this journal. I've spent several hours copy pasting all entries into the journal, but Deviantart can't handle it for some reason, so when I click publish they disappear, and only half of them remains. I'm sorry, I'm gonna have to give up on that, then. ;_; I'm so frustrated, there's just too many entries

This is a "draw my character" contest, which means that to participate, you'll pick one of the characters (will be humans, anthro and canines (feral) to choose from!!) listed below and draw them, and after some time has passed we'll pick some winners! I will be judging alongside two of my IRL friends so that the contest is not gonna be biased. Everyone, no matter your "skill" or whatever, is invited to join and all have a chance of winning some sweet prizes.

You are allowed to draw as many of my characters as you'd like, and join as many times as you'd like. Each drawing counts as an individual entry and will all be judged seperately, which means that a person technically can win more than one prize.


The prizes will be a mix of USD/points (winner can choose) and art by a few people I really adore and have handpicked myself!
If you want to donate a prize, note me! I'd really appreciate it <3
I will provide screenshot proof that I have paid the prizes to the winners. 
Will be judged by me and two friends of mine to make things fair. They will not enter the contest themselves

End date: 14.03.2018 // March 14. Extended to April 20th 6 PM CEST  
I really felt like giving everyone who wants to join enough time to do so, because a lot of people put a lot of time and effort into their work and has, on top of this, commissions, school/jobs or other stuff going on as well! Please be understanding when I give this contest so much time. I want to include everyone, and I might add on to the prizes if a lot of people join.
Please keep in mind that you're allowed to have as many entries as you wish, and therefore some extra time is good!

Edit: The contest was extended by popular demand, and will not be extended further. 


You can find all the entries here!

Characters you may draw
