Design me a character - OVER

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 24, 2013, 6:11 PM


Thank you to everyone who have entered and plan to enter! I'm very happy and surprised about the amount of people entering the contest!

Since the amount of entries is much higher than what I expected, I decided to add a few more smaller prices to mention other good designs, even if I won't be keeping the characters. There will be 5 other winners of 100 :points: each!

I'm very picky when it comes to designs, and I know it won't be easy to choose, there are already many good designs. And the contest is not over yet, I'm still expecting to see other great entries! :D


End of Edit


What I wish is to have one (or more) animal character(s) I will like enough to use/draw/etc. But I can't seem to be able to create an animal OC I like enough by myself. I have plenty of human OC that I never post but whatever but no recent animal OCs I really like. So this is why I'm holding this contest :D



Rules

Green Square Bullet Anyone can win! Entries will not be judged on your skill, but on the character design itself.
Green Square Bullet Character design must be an animal.
Green Square Bullet You can submit more than one entry.
Green Square Bullet Entries must be made for this contest, no previously created characters.
Green Square Bullet To enter, just upload your entry and link it to me by commenting on this journal, on my page or in a note.
Green Square Bullet Entries must be posted in your gallery so I can add it to my favorites in the Contest Entries folder.
Green Square Bullet No tracing/copying of someone else art or character.
Green Square Bullet No use of base or lineart done by someone else than you. Again, it's not judged on skill, so it doesn't matter if you are not that good at drawing.
Green Square Bullet If you win, I will keep the design and may edit a few details about it.
Green Square Bullet If you don't win, you can keep the design.
Green Square Bullet All entries will be judged by myself. The winners will simply be the designs I like the best. (since it's the point of the contest)
Green Square Bullet The contest end on the 7th of August.

Let me know if you have any questions.



Here is a description of what I'm looking for, you can follow it to increase your chances of winning, or you can choose to not follow it too, if you feel confident enough that I will likes the design.

Green Square Bullet Some keywords of themes/starting ideas/things I like that could be used:

leaf, bug/insect, gem, nature, plant, magic, flower, cute, feather, shiny, fruit, angel, tropical, native pattern, spicy, sushi, pastel, peace, space, green, flame, zen, ribbon, cloud, bubble, soul, sweet, confetti, etc, I may add more later.

Green Square Bullet Any kind of animal is fine, but I would rather like a canine or an original species, or even a pokemon like creature. Felines are ok too.
Green Square Bullet No ponies.
Green Square Bullet Main color could be white, black, brown, pastel or dark color, or any not too flashy color.
Green Square Bullet Secondary color(s) could be anything, flashy or not.
Green Square Bullet Keep it simple, not too many different colors/patterns/accessories. I'm not looking for an extreme sparkledog or something that will be difficult to redraw.
Green Square Bullet My favorite color is green, so any green accessory/marking would be nice.

Entries can be viewed in the Contest Entries Folder

when I held a contest like this, only 3 people put in entries and I gave them 6 months to do the contest.

How did you do it?

I kinda rushed so I'm sorry for the terribleness in my entry ;;A;;
But I even named her for you!!
Her name is Mervellie~ (french for jewel)
I don't quite know how to do shining things on animals... but all the spots on her are supposed to be jewels uwu
You can change the colors if you'd like!! I saw you liked green and I now think shades of green on her would look really pretty uwu
Oh and she likes shiny things~
Hope you like her!!
