As co-founder of :iconmagicalwoods: I can proudly present you our very fist contest. It starts today and ends in one month, on 11th January. You have a lot of time to make something natural and magical related so you can entry contest and earn a chance to get one of plenty of prizes in points :points: and free art commissions.

For the contest you should create a creature that you think stands for nature. A spirit that's either a guardian of nature or maybe represents nature itself. You can be quite free in the design. It can be a dragon, an elf, a pegasus or unicorn, well in fact any creature you think fits best as a spirit of nature.

Be sure to check it out and be creative, but more importantly have fun  :)

Read more here   Magical Woods CONTEST BEGINS!!! (Important Update)Hello everyone of Magicalwoods!
Finally our contest will start! Both MILICRAFT and me collected some prizes and we're happy to announce the theme.
But first I want to thank my now co-founder for all the help in managing the group! Thank you so much! :love:
:bulletblack: Now for the contest theme: MAGICAL WOODS - The spirit of nature.
Since it's our first contest we thought it should be something about our groups' name. So create a creature that you think stands for nature. A spirit that's either a guardian of nature or maybe represents nature itself. You can be quite free in the design. It can be a dragon, an elf, a pegasus or unicorn, well in fact any creature you think fits best as a spirit of nature.
:bulletblack: Here some basic rules for the contest:
- You have to be a member of MagicalWoods.
- Your entry must have a background, not just some splashes of color.
- Please no mature content or too much violence.
- You can submit up to two entries, though you cannot win two prizes. S
Hey guys,

I made my first speed drawing and put it on youtube. Please, let me know what you think.
Should I make more of them? And what would you want me to draw? What do you want to see?
Thanks a lot for the effort!…

xx Ilse
