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 wonder if this can be considered an entry [link]
I do believe it would be so. I've asked the original owner of the OC if I could and he allowed me ^^
