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 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!
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
Anyone can win! Entries will not be judged on your skill, but on the character design itself.
Character design must be an animal.
You can submit more than one entry.
Entries must be made for this contest, no previously created characters.
To enter, just upload your entry and link it to me by commenting on this journal, on my page or in a note.
Entries must be posted in your gallery so I can add it to my favorites in the Contest Entries folder.
No tracing/copying of someone else art or character.
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.
If you win, I will keep the design and may edit a few details about it.
If you don't win, you can keep the design.
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)
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.
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.
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.
Main color could be white, black, brown, pastel or dark color, or any not too flashy color.
Secondary color(s) could be anything, flashy or not.
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.
My favorite color is green, so any green accessory/marking would be nice.
Entries can be viewed in the Contest Entries Folder
1st Place: 2000 + a pixel icon of the character of your choice.
2nd Place: 1000 + a pixel icon of the character of your choice.
3rd Place: 1000
4th Place: 500
5 other people will also get 100 for their designs
Good luck to everyone!
