Here is everything you need to know to enter!


Contest rules:


1) Pick and draw a scene using one or multiple characters:

    Felix, Ikita, Bayou, Sigmund, Natalie, Liz.

    (From my webcomic Catnip, you don't need to read the comics)

here are the links to their references, please let me know if you require extra reference:

Felix: fav.me/d60b236 fav.me/d4r9zql  fav.me/d5s10lq  fav.me/d4dll3y  fav.me/d62v9n8

Ikita: fav.me/d65gqqd  fav.me/d3bx5jg  fav.me/d67skqn  fav.me/d4nkud5

Bayou: fav.me/d602nmc fav.me/d6c3wgp fav.me/d5qsiex  fav.me/d6553pe

Sigmund: fav.me/d67a5i3  fav.me/d5kdog2  fav.me/d5j03pf

Natalie: real-dandy.tumblr.com/post/494… fav.me/d3ndwl1 (Natalie and Ikita) real-dandy.tumblr.com/post/456…

Liz: fav.me/d33sv85

2) There must be some kind of interaction with either an object or another character (out of the list). A simple action is ok, such as drinking tea or swinging a sword.Keep it cool and creative.( Scene does not have to have a background, but you certainly can add it )

3) You have to design an outfit for any characters you include, and they must be wearing it, of course. (The story originally based in 19th century, so you can make your outfit designs in a same time period but you don't have to, it's up to you.)


Prizes:


All entries will be judged by myself and a few others behind closed doors. No open voting on this one! I will be weighting this most heavily on concept and design. You don't necessarily have to be the most skilled artist, just show dedication and effort in your work.


There will be 3 main winners, but every entrant will get mentions, features and lamas.


*1st place: 3 Month Premium Membership, a colored digital commission from me, a copy of Volume 1 of Catnip with a book mark, a print and button set shipped to you. Also your outfit design will be drawn by me as well, and you will be credited :)


**2nd Place: 1 Month Premium Membership, a black and white commission from me, and a print and button set shipped to you.


***3rd Place: 1 Month Premium Membership, a sketch from me, and a print and button set shipped to you.


Each person can submit 2 entries total. Deadline is November 15.2013

To submit your entry just post in on DA and note it to me with title "Contest Entry"


Who is going to MetroCon? If you are please don't be shy and stop by my table to say hello! Show me your costumes as well. I'll be cosplaying all 3 days and I will have lots of new prints, buttons and the first Volume of Catnip available for purchase. Alright see you there ^__^

Hi guys, hope you all been well!
Thanx for stopping by, sorry I haven't posted any new journals in a while, school is keeping me busy OTZ, but its almost April, and I LOVE April ( birthday is soon ;)) so I am in a awesome mood lately! Anyways, as of recently, I've received lots of new  watchers and friends ! Yay! I am so exited to see you guys enjoy my art, so I've decided to thank you all for your awesome support by having a couple of kiribans!
I am setting 2(two) mini kiribans since my big one is still a bit away!
But remember, these kiribans not going to be anyhting big, it will be just a bust sketch of one(1)  character of your choice and maybe some colors! Its also first come first served, so no double kiribans!
So the kiribans are: 48,888 and 49,333

Ok one down, congrats to :iconsnowbanshee: for getting 48,888, here is her kiriban picture

The next one is almost here wow So fast! Glad you guys like the idea! I am highly considering making more of these mini kiribans after this round!! Also If anyone considering drawing some Catnip art for me, i would gladly return the favor with similar bust sketches! <3 I am on a kick of collecting Catnip art from readers and other artists ^__^ so help me out here!


AND don't forget the big Kiriban  50K is right around the corner! <3 Woot!

Good luck everyone

Hello my dear friends!
Ah it feels good to update, Finally I am ok to say the project that I've been waiting to show you is ready for viewing,not fully completed , but ready to look at,  anyways behold www.catnipmanga.com!!
LOL Ah I know, Catnip finally growing up into a toddler and making its tiny steps into the world on its own site! Thanx to all my readers/friends for encouragement! The site will be full soon, there are Bios coming up, also merch. and of course new, revamped , retouched, and fixed manga pages! Please feel free to check it out!
Also, my friend gave me a good idea to create a DA fan group for Catnip manga so, I am strongly considering that idea, I know I don't have many readers yet, but that way I can spread the word, meet new people, gain readers and affiliate with other talented artists and their manga..hum? If anybody is interested in helping me to run the group, let me know. The idea is still fresh, but I am strongly considering making one eventually!
Also  last week i received a very awesome surprise , I logged in, and found this!
