Monthly Art and Writing prompt #26 - Decemeber 2021 to January 2022

____________________________________

Hello everyone and welcome to the Monthly Art and Writing Prompt, or MAWP for short! Every month, a prompt is made available. These prompts will be broad, with additional sub-prompts to help guide you creatively. Be sure to submit your work in the folder titled "MAWP Submissions," submissions outside of that folder will be moved to the correct one. Your prompt must have at least one impim in it.


Feature Event


  • Admins and mods of Planet Imia will go through all prompts and select 5 pieces of art and 5 creative writing journals to feature at the end of the month. More rewards are likely to be added as the group develops.


MYO Raffle Event - General and FTO


  • Participants earn a raffle ticket (Max 1 per user) for completing a MAWP prompt. At the end of the month, general slots and slots for first-time owners (FTO) will be raffled off. Please reply to the correct featured comment in this journal with a link to your submission to receive a number.

  •  You may choose whether your slot will be an Oni slot, a regular Impim MYO slot, or a Pet MYO slot!

  •  MYO slots scale with the number of entries that are submitted to the comment chains. For every five entries submitted, one new myo slot will be given to that particular chain. For example, if ten entries are submitted to the general raffle chain, two MYO slots will be raffled off for the general slots.

Snowflake Prompt 1: Decemeber 2021 MAWPSnowflake

Freezing Cold Nap

"After many days of planning and excitement, you have to admit that when the great Dreameater didn't appear on time, you were a little annoyed.

After making all those Nimin and lanterns, too... But the elders said not to worry. "They are merely taking a nap. Do not fret!" the older Imps explained. After all, every few years Dreameater will sleep for a few extra days, but that's no matter; All you have to do is wake them up. Impims from all over Imia begin to suit up for the long trek ahead, dressing up in winter clothes and carrying torches to light the way.

Soon, they would make it to the Dreameaters cave where they would find the god covered in ice and snow, slumbering away.

Now.. how will they wake Dreameater up on time?"

The Cold Warms My Heart by King-Lulu-Deer




Reminder: Only one submission is needed to be considered for a feature and only one raffle ticket is given to each individual participant. Completing multiple entries is optional.

New Year, New Me

‘When the end of the year draws near, a new beginning to life awaits. During this time, all of Imia gather around the ‘Tree of Beginnings’ to watch the bioluminescent butterflies hatch from their chrysalis once the sun sets. The year begins the moment they spread their colorful wings and fly into the night sky! Their large numbers and glowing wings illuminate the tree, almost turning night into day.‘

"The Tree of Beginnings is a huge, colorful tree that lights up the skies of Imia! It is said that if you tell the tree your hopes and wishes for the new year, it will whisper them to the butterflies who will emerge from their glowing chrysalis' to carry your wishes across Imia!"
Butterfly by Lady-Pixel



Reminder: Only one submission is needed to be considered for a feature and only one raffle ticket is given to each individual participant. Completing multiple entries is optional.

- Figuring out their hopes for the new year

Other Information


Your entries will not be graded on the quality of the art or written piece. We understand that everyone starts somewhere and your skill level will never disqualify you from a feature. The pieces will be judged on the amount of effort and creativity out into them. Be as imaginative and wild as you can be!

You may always go back through the MAWP's and complete previous prompts to your liking, however only the current month's submissions will be considered for the feature. You may use all old prompts to help you develop your characters and skills.

NSFW pieces, both drawings and writings, are strictly prohibited from group. You may create those pieces in private, but please do not submit them to the group. If this rule is broken you will immediately be disqualified from the event and future events if necessary. 

We ask that all MAWPS include one impim starting July 1st, 2021. This is to make it easier to verify that the art/writing was made specifically for the MAWP in question! We apologize for any complications this may have caused!

Hi I did the Pride Month MAWP last month but i was unaware that I had to submit it to somewhere else. Can I still get an MYO slot if I posted it there? The pic should have the date on when I submitted it to DA

MeatCatt's avatar

I've just finished my MAWP piece, which comment do I reply it under?

MeatCatt's avatar

Are you at FTO or an AO owner :0?

zer0drawn's avatar

I don't know what FTO or AO means? Could you explain?

MeatCatt's avatar

Ah! sorry for the delay! FTO: means first time owner! If you have never owned an impim you would count as a FTO! AO is already owner, if you have already owned an impim whether that be currently owning one or owning one a long time ago and trading it away!

zer0drawn's avatar

Oh ok. Thanks for the explanation. I'll go enter my entry to the AO one then.
