Night of the Hunters Event - Ended
Entries journal:
"The flight of the arrow is as true as the skill and the nerve of the man with the bow."
You're alone with your horse, riding in the purest and finest nature. With your bow and arrow on your back, you quietly move forward, while watching every corner of the environment you're riding in. Then, at 150 feet right in front of you, you see the shiny light from a big animal. Maybe a big deer, you know that they can be quite hard, which is a positive thing for your score. You let your horse move the other way, out of the small breeze and once you get close enough, you grab your bow tighly, pull your arrow backwards, breathe in and aim carefully...
Welcome to the Night of the Hunters Event!
It is all about arching while riding your horse, in the night, in a large nature area. You're hunting for magical animals, they don't live, they are made out of bright light. Now you may
 results:  Night of the Hunters Event - RESULTSIt's truly AMAZING what you all drew!! A total of 22 very strong entries! I'm so happy with that and I'm really proud on you all. It was a hell to judge this, really, you all deserve a great place but that's not possible ;___; So I'm really sorry if you're dissapointed, but I simply can't put everyone at the first place D: I was quite strict with judging to get the best and fairest results, and I really took my time to judge everyone against their gallery, so I'm sorry for the long wait :/ You all did so great, so I decided that it would be fair to write a comment/critique/tips/somethinglikethat from about 100-250 words for every entry. If you don't want that, then just don't read it xD

I totally love the way you  colored the wolf! He/she looks very mystical because he looks slightly transparent!

This is such a gorgeous painting I really loved seeing it in my inbox today (:
I love the cute and fluffy red/orange fox.
Larinne is such a pretty girl and I love how you did her hair! :D  It's like it's blowing in the wind as she rides forwards on her horse.
Ellesaraya is a gorgeous horse too and I love the anatomy of her!
In fact, all characters have great anatomy! xD
I hope you will win with this!  It's really awesome and you keep getting better with each new piece I see! xD
