Hello all! Since the weather is warming up here (and I'm finished with exams), it's time for another contest! I decided to go for a more straightforward theme this time around: draw one of my ocs with one of yours. I'm keeping the rules pretty loose, so there's a lot of room for creativity.
These are probably going to be updated at least once before the end of the contest, since it's such a long one, so expect to see these getting better. (Just a note, though, I do have a few commission restraints. Ask if you think it'll be a problem. )
- Single character fullbody, full color, with background or transparency, natural shaded or lineless:
- A hand-knitted scarf in your choice of colors (either striped or solid, 3 or fewer solid colors or variegated + Choice of patch, if wanted) (Photo quality isn't the best, but this is the idea.)
-2 separate chibis (colored):

***Prize Update (?) : I was thinking of adding an experimental plush to the prizes if there are enough entries. It wouldn't be very large, and might not be terribly high quality, but I have a ton of fabric to use, and I've been considering playing around with making plushes again. There are a few really old examples floating around in my gallery. If I'm feeling really motivated and get some good samples out, I might even do a crocheted plush instead. It would be small, but probably very cute. If you have opinions on this, please, let me know!
- Your entry has to have at least one of your characters and at least one of mine, preferably interacting in an interesting way.
- So long as the character is still recognizable, change whatever you want about the design, including changing it to fit a different genre.
- You do NOT have to be a watcher to enter.
- Any medium is allowed, literature included. Fair warning, though, I'm a stickler for grammar and spelling.
- You *can* use bases and dolls (properly attributed, of course) but they won't get as much consideration as something you drew independently.
- Collaborations are also allowed, but dividing the prize if you win will be up to you.
- Gore is okay. Only non-fetish NSFW.
- Ships are okay, but not for characters that are already in relationships. Stick to their orientations if you do a pairing, though.
- Maximum of three entries per person, and you can only win with one.
Either send me a note or comment on this journal with a link to your entry and any promotion you've done for this contest (a journal entry, poll, forum post, etc.) Your entry will be added to the 'entries' section of this journal, with a next to it if you spread the word about this contest. People who do this (or otherwise promote the contest) will be entered into a raffle for a free fullbody lineart.
- Any characters from my gallery or my writing are fair game. I recommend the Rogues Gallery folder of my gallery if you're not familiar with my ocs, but here my faves of the moment:
