[Contest] $60 / 6000points to be won! (CLOSED)

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 13, 2014, 9:26 PM

Since many entries are breaking the rules, I'm making an edit with some new tips and reminders about the contest,

Ok first important thing...


This means no creatures that look heavily based from canines and felines. Humans/Anthros are ok, as long as they look mostly "reptilish"

New tips have also been added to the "avoid" section bellow.

The contest is extended until March 7!

Contest theme:
design me a character

I'm looking for a new creature character(s) I will like. No mammals
I would prefer something like a reptile/snake/wyvern/monster/insect

I will make of the winning designs my characters (OCs), I will draw them and probably commission other artists to draw them too. Winning designs will be mine to keep but you will still get credits for creating them, plus a prize in points or in money (USD, PayPal required) to your choice! If you don't win, you can keep your design, resell it, etc once the contest is over.

 Anyone can win! Entries will not be judged on your skill, but on the character design itself.
