UPDATE - RESULTS
I'm fighting with my computer and slow internet right now, so I apologise for posting results on the original contest entry. _._;;
Anyways, in the end I ended up having a tie between second place winners so both artist/entries will get $15USD!
Thank you to all those who entered, I loved seeing what everyone ended up coming up with, and I really wish I could of awarded more prizes.
Maybe another time, when I have the means/time to hold a bigger contest...
Honourable mentions will get 400
Everyone else who participated but didn't place will get 150
To first, second and third place winners, please note me your PayPal info so I can send over your prizes.
(And if you prefer points for any reason, let me know)
Please be patient with receiving everything - I have it all set aside, but as mentioned before, slow internet makes everything more difficult/longer to do.
THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!
UPDATE - OCT 3
Thank you to EVERYONE who has submited an entry!
The contest WILL BE JUDGED, and winners should be announced by Monday (Oct 9); Tuesday at the latest!!
For those who might still wish to enter, you have until Saturday 11:59pm CST to finish and submit your entry to be considered eligible for judging!
WHAT IS THIS?
An art contest.
WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
Contest begins June 27, 2017 and ends September 30, 2017.
WHAT DO I DRAW?
My OC, whom I consider a representation of the Keeper of the Gates that lead to the various world/verses I create.
(aka my 'mascot')
She is a Scheep - a sheep/scottie (scottish terrier) hybrid species I created.
Fur: very dark, almost black grey.
Hoove/paws: light grey (hooves on front legs, paws on back ones)
Eyes: ice blue.
Wings: same colour as fur, with silver tipping and markings upon the feathers.
Other: white-gold unicorn horn that glows with a gold-silver light when used. also, leg feathering on upper portion of legs.
When she's using her horn, both her eyes and markings on her wings glow.
Her feet leave trails of magical stardust.
by me: One
by others: One Two
Solakei can be drawn by herself, or alongside any of the other OCs I own (heh).
I also love seeing her drawn with a plushie version of my OC, Arii's, sheep form...
tbh as long as the character design stays true, artistic license can be taken to give your own spin/flair.
I'm excited to see what all you can come up with! Have fun.
01. Entries submitted must be one hundred percent your own creation (no using bases). Using references in regards to matters such as poses is fine, but source must be stated and credited. Photo manipulation is a no-go, as is (obviously) tracing.
02. If I have commissioned or requested art from you in the past, you are still free to enter. However, you can not use the art done for said commission/requests. Submitted artwork must be unique in creation for this contest.
03. All manners and genres of visual art is allowed, whether it be done using digital and-or traditional means. Submissions can be of any rating, as long as it's considered appropriate to dA standards and contain proper filters.
04. There is no limit to the number of entries each artist wishes to submit, though an artist is limited to winning just one major prize (so no to the same artist winning both first and second or variation thereof).
WHAT CAN I WIN?
Minimum of five (5) entries needed to award prizes:First Place

Since cash is the prize being offered, it is required that all participants have access to PayPal.
If for some reason you are unable to provide such and win, then I might
be able to instead provide prize through equivalent DA Points.
