Spring Giving Art Contest [ENDED]

Journal Entry: Mon May 13, 2013, 9:28 PM


Alright, listen up! There are people here who have never received fanart in their life. You heard me right! They have never experienced the joy of receiving a loving gift of art from another artist. So you know what? I have just the solution for this atrocity! Read below for details~

Contest is over! Thanks to all participants! Judging shall now begin. Winners will be announced in about a week.

Contest? What contest?


Here's how it works. To enter, pick someone on DA with less than 400 watchers and preferably enjoys MLP:FiM cause you'll be drawing them a pony, and it'd be awkward if they're not into that. What pony? Their OC of course! If you can't find one, be sure to send them a note and ask! If they don't have one, pick a pony from the show, or from another generation!

So basically: You'll be drawing the OC of a fellow MLP fan with less than 400 watchers. Also, it must be drawn specifically for this contest! And if you're not sure how many watchers someone has, here's a quick little tutorial!

How long do I have?


This contest will be running from today, May 13 until June 13. I am aware that many artists might have finals at this time, so there might be an extension if we don't get enough entries.

What do I get out of this!!?


The warm, fuzzy feeling of knowing you made someone's day~

Also winners get prizes. Yup. Current prizes (will be updated if people want to donate, and please do!):

1st place: 1280 points, journal feature, 1 free commission by me, 1 free commission by IceOfWaterflock
2nd place: 1000 points, journal feature, 1 free commission by me, 1 free commission by PixelsArtShop, 1 free commission by IceOfWaterflock
3rd place: 500 points, journal feature, 1 free commission by yumehari, 1 free commission by IceOfWaterflock, 1 free commission by cheesepuff2


Send me a note if you want to donate something! Can be anything; points, features, membership, commissions, etc.

Who's judging?


As of now: me, ImUnderTheStairs, crasydwarf, StarClanwatches, emmankt, wildberry-poptart, and IceOfWaterflock
If you want to help judge, send me a note!

How do I enter?


Pick your victim (can be a friend as well!) and draw them their OC! Then send me a note with a link to your entry, and I'll stick it in a favorites folder specifically made for this contest. Also, you may submit unlimited entries (draw for as many people who fit the criteria as you like!), but can only win one prize. But the best prize is making someone smile! So in the end, everyone wins~!

Current entries!

Any more questions? Throw them below in the comments! This is my first contest, so I'm bound to have forgotten something. And it'd be a great help if you spread the word!

I do believe it would be so. I've asked the original owner of the OC if I could and he allowed me ^^

Since you drew your entry before the 400 watchers mark, it's fine.

The person I'm drawing the entry for may go over 400 watchers before June 13. Is that a problem? Because I have most of it finished.

I drew my entry, and I'm uploading it right now. I was just curious, is it okay if this person has recieved a gift (not necessarily fan art, because s/he doesn't have a pony OC) before, but if it were from me?

Also, this gift is for two people. Is that okay?

Ah! It's done loading: [link]

i watch someone who mentioned this contest and at first i wasn't gonna do it but something happened that inspired me to try, but i was wondering, should i ask the artist if its ok to draw there character first? i kinda wanted it to be a surprise, but im not sure if that is like ok to do xD

In general, I don't think anyone would mind a little fanart. But if you're concerned, might be best to ask.
Good luck~!

I've only ever received one peice of fanart and that moment when someone, for the first time, sends you a message saying they drew you something, is the best moment of your life I mean omfg. I may enter this if I have time ^^ and can be bothered to get off my lazy ass and do something lol

is it in bad taste to point out the fact that I have only 19 watchers accumulated over a 9 year period... I'm... just sayin... also I'll be hunting down awesome OCs to draw as well..

I'm sure there are many wonderful artists out there who also have too few watchers. The more art you put out, the more attention you'll receive! Good luck!

This is a really nice idea, and I should use it as inspiration to get out of this art block I've been in... Hmm, who do I know that has less than 400 watchers, beside's myself?

You can pick anyone here who also has less than 400, or! I have a list of friends and other artists who fit the criteria! I can send you a note if you wish.

I was considering making fanart of :iconloopend: 's OC, actually. Which is convenient, since she seems to have a definitive character.
