CONGRATS TO
:iconhanatsuki-ai:
Valentine 2016 CE-ShizuTom-ILuvU by Hanatsuki-Ai

Judge comments: Nice incorporation of composition elements to create a sense of 3D environment.
Though still exists couple of perspective issues, and general fuzziness problems, overall it is a nice cute piece.

Ideas, suggestions, thoughts, questions, etc are welcome, just comment below.
JUST A REMINDER THAT WE HAVE AN ONGOING CONTEST :p

CONTEST IS OFFICIALLY OPEN, PRIZE DONATIONS WILL CONTINUE AS WELL~

Hi people it is time for a new contest! This time it is all about GIJINKA!

So what is gijinka? It is the japanese term for humanization, most commonly known as fan redesign of animal characters or sometimes inanimate objects  or even places.

So for the contest you are to choose ONE of the below options to GIJINKA and make it into a piece that is somewhat yaoi or yuri related

1. two animals of your choosing (e.g. cat and mouse, redesigns of existing animal character pairings as humanoids)
2. two objects of your choosing (e.g. pencil and sharpener)
3. two countries or locations of your choosing (e.g. hetalia fanart of yaoi or yuri pairings is acceptable)
4. two plants of your choosing (e.g. manjusaka flower and leaf)

*NOTE: The drawing should be somewhat humanoid and have characteristics of the thing you are humanizing

I WILL ASK MY ADMINS TO PICK OUT ONE WINNER WITH ME! (ADMIN can participate as well)
