THE CONTEST IS OVER! There was a total of 30 entries so I will be adding 50 points to each prize! Additionally, someone donated 43 points so those will be divided among the contest placements as well. In further addition, no written entries were submitted, so there will be a recalculation of points (for those who donated prizes to the written winner you no longer need to give them!). The new prizes will be listed beneath each placement so check below!
As for the advertisement prize, no one said that they had been recommended to enter this contest by anyone else so regrettably there will be no prize given out!
I want to thank everyone who entered, donated, or advertised. You truly made my day with your support and/or drawing of my character(s)!!! I hope that as I judge you will all wait patiently and perhaps go check out my friend and I's other contest (It would really mean a lot if you entered it, her characters barely ever get drawn!!!). I will post the results as soon as possible, note the winners (and the donators) with what they get/have to give! Every entry was absolutely fantastic and I will comment on each one trying to convey how much love I feel for all of you who entered! Thank you again for making this 2013 contest absolutely fantastic!!!
Much love to everyone!!!
P.S. If you linked me your entry and it somehow is not in the entry folder LET ME KNOW!!!
Fun Little Notes
-7 entries included Iris
-4 entries included Shayd
-4 entries included Fiero
-3 entries included BOTH Fiero and Shayd
-6 entries included Theo
-Of those 6 entries 4 were wolf!Theo and 2 were gijinka!Theo
-3 entries included Thad (only one was gijinka!)
-2 entries contained BOTH Thad and Theo
-9 entries included Arc (of them one was gijinka/human)
-7 entries included Silent (of them one was gijinka/human)
-6 entries included BOTH Arc and Silent (of them one was gijinka/human)
-4 entries included Aarin
-2 entries included Airyk
-1 entry included BOTH Aarin and Airyk
So overall, the most popular character to draw was ARC, with Silent and Iris as close seconds. The most popular couple to draw was ARC/SILENT. The least popular character to draw was AIRYK, and the least popular couple was AARIN/AIRYK.
Most Songified Idea goes to who not only found one of my new fave songs but found one that PERFECTLY fits Thad and Theo! Then there's the great art to match! I will be sending 10 points your way, my song-a-licious friend!!!
Cutest Flight goes to for having such lovely swirling feathers and such tenderness between the cutest little chibis of Arc and Silent!!! I'll be sending 10 points your way for giving me cavities!!!
Everything Bagel goes to for drawing EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IN ONE ENTRY!!! Great work! They all are super adorable! I'll be sending 10 points your way for your expertise at mixing the 'ingredients'!!!
Closest To Home goes to for unconsciously creating an entry that reflects what's going on in my life right now! I'll be graduating high school next Tuesday!!! So for bringing up memories, I'll be sending you 10 points!!!
Third Place goes to for having just such an original idea, then putting it forth in a comic! You portrayed them perfectly in character in your own little AU and every time that I look at it my heart wrenches and then tingles and I just love going back over every inch of this piece!
Second Place goes to for utilizing the color purple in such a way that I do not find it distasteful! Seriously, a gorgeous piece, the semi-monochromatic background allows for a serene quality and focuses one's eyes on Shayd and Fiero in the foreground. Their little nose touch is absolutely perfect for their relationship at the moment! The backlighting is amazing and your fur texture is awesome!
First Place goes to which is one of the most stunning pieces I've had entered in any of my contests!!! I adore the use of light, foreshortening, and expression! I could go on for hours about this piece I really could! The dynamic pose, the portrayal of the characters, the brilliance of the use of white, it's all absolutely gorgeous and deserving of first place! Thank you to everyone who entered!!!

-----What You Are To Do-----
Draw my characters. There are no restrictions, no themes, nothing. I want this to be all about how you interpret them, while still staying true to them. I want to see what glorious things you all can create of them, what ones you are drawn to, what ones you challenge yourself to draw. All you have to do is DRAW. Written entries are also allowed but will be judged separate from the art as it is difficult for me to compare them! Any form of media is allowed-digital, traditional, 2D, 3D, music, etc.
Currently it is May 31st but this is subject to change.
Countdown: 6 days left
-you may not submit art that was made prior to this contest, all submissions must be SOLELY for this contest
-any form of media is allowed, if you do traditional media I may ask whether you are comfortable mailing it to me
-if you have questions please comment below so others can see your question and my response
-sketches, linearts, etc. are all welcome entries!
-in terms of maturity please do not do anything that the character would not do, if you have specific questions then please ask but I mostly leave this to your own discretion
-you may submit as many entries as you want but you may only place once
Judging will be based not just on technical skills but also on creativity and the adherence to the actual character's personalities and descriptions. Someone who thinks outside the box and puts a lot of effort into their piece is probably more likely to win than someone who sketches two headshots and calls it done. While you may enter multiple times, quality is being judged over quantity.
