[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...

PLEASE, READ THE RULES


NO OBVIOUS MAMMALS
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.

Yellow Square Bullet Tips Yellow Square Bullet

Blue Square Bullet It can be a cute or a ferocious creature, cartoon or realistic design.
Blue Square Bullet I prefer simple designs with a unique touch of paterns/colors.
Blue Square Bullet I like designs of more neutral colors with a mix of colorful patterns.

Yellow Square Bullet To avoid Yellow Square Bullet 

Blue Square Bullet I find designs with only neutral/natural colors kinda boring.
Blue Square Bullet I am not a fan of "girly" designs. Pink and Purple are fine to use, as long as they are not the only colors used.

Hi Kawiku!

 I understood that I placed onto this contest with this design entry, -unnamed-
 I was wondering if you're going to use the design anytime soon? The 1st place winner,
 the stripe gecko, was absolutely gorgeous and i understand you liked to draw the top winner,
 but i was mostly asking if you're going to use the design at all? 'v' I'm sorry if this comes off
 as pushing, sorry! I'd was just curious if you're still considering it as your character, therefore
 i could cross it off my art folder and leave it's ownership completely to you?

 -omena
