Thank you once again to everyone that entered and to all of you for following me! If you didn’t win this time, don’t worry, I’ll have another contest like this in the future. I’m also thinking that I’ll open up paid commissions at some point, too. :) To those of you that won, keep your ask boxes open, I’m going to send you a message!

Contest is Closed

All right guys, the contest is closed! Thank you so much to everyone who participated! I’ll announce the winners at 12 PM EST today!

HOW IT WORKS:

-The contest will be open for 48 hours.  You have until 10:30 AM EST on Sunday August 17th to participate. 

-Reblog this post for a chance to enter. Only reblogs will be counted, this is to keep track of who’s actually interested in receiving art and who’s just being supportive.

-Each person’s name is entered once.  Only people who are following me will be entered.

-If you follow me between now and when the contest is finished, I will not include your name. Sorry guys, this is to thank past people for supporting me. I do appreciate your new support though! And I’ll have contests again in the future. :) I also want to try to cut down on people just following me to win something, or people making duplicate accounts to try to rig the contest. Those are unlikely events, but just to try to be fair, this is to thank past followers.

-keep your ask boxes open, I’ll post here and message the winners around 12 PM EST August 17th.  You’ll have 24 hours to reply. If you don’t, I’ll pick another winner, no hard feelings.

WHAT YOU’LL WIN:

Five people will receive a free full-color commission like the drawing above of up to two characters. The characters can be human or animal, whatever, but I draw people better than I do anything else so keep that in mind. The characters can either be existing characters (fan art) or your own OCs, but if the characters are yours (or if I haven’t heard of the existing characters), I’ll want you to send me a description of them including things like personality. It’s always easiest if you have visual reference for them! If you don’t have visual reference, you’ll have to accept my personal interpretation of what you told me.  Nothing NSFW, period.  This time around I won’t be giving out physical copies of anything, I’ll just be posting the finished paintings here on tumblr.  

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

I’ve never done a contest before, so please be patient with me as I figure this out. I might do things things dumbly this time, but it’s a learning curve. :) Also, I’m a slow painter so it may take me a week or two to complete these. But as I said before, you ARE getting them for free. ;)

Thank you once again for all of your support! I hope you guys enjoy your paintings! 

GOOD LUCK!

Finished! I hope you like it, skyneverthelimit!

Another WIP for skyneverthelimit. It may be taking forever, but here’s some proof I AM working on it, lol!

A work in progress for skyneverthelimit. I’ll be painting it this weekend or Monday! :D

I passed 2000 followers yesterday, so here’s a little note to thank all of you guys!

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION - YAY!

Firstly, THIS IS NOT THE DRAWING TO REBLOG, this is just the info! It won’t happen until next week because I’m going to be swamped this weekend with work and I have an ear infection (fun!), but next friday, August 15th, I’ll post an illustration. For the next 48 hours afterwards, I’ll tally all the reblogs (reblogs only, not likes) and I’ll put the names into a hat (or if there are a lot, which I’m not expecting, I’ll put the numbers into a website random number generator and I’ll count from the first person to reblog up, ignoring people who aren’t following me).

WHAT YOU’LL WIN:

Five people will receive a free full-color commission of up to two characters without backgrounds from me. The characters can be human or animal, whatever, but I draw people better than I do anything else so keep that in mind. ;) The characters can either be existing characters (fan art) or your own OCs, but if the characters are yours I’ll want you to send me a description of them that’s pretty detailed including some personality info, and it’s always easiest if you have visual reference for them! If you don’t have visual reference, you’ll have to accept my personal interpretation of what you told me. :) Also, I live under a bit of a rock, so if I haven’t heard of the existing characters you choose you might have to tell me about them, too, lol. You can be fairly specific about what you want the characters doing (Hagrid on a broom! My characters kissing!) but nothing NSFW, period. This time around I won’t be giving out physical copies of the drawings, just posting the images here to tumblr. Maybe in the future I’ll send original paintings, but I don’t have the time/organization right now to do that. :)

SOME RULES AND INFO:

-You must be following me to be counted (if you’re not and you feel like reblogging it, cool! but you won’t be entered into the contest, this is to thank my followers)

-reblogs only, not likes (this is so I can see who’s actually interested in receiving art, versus just being supportive). :)

-keep your ask boxes open, I’ll post here and message the winners sunday, August 17th. You’ll have 24 hours to reply, if you don’t, I’ll pick another winner, no hard feelings.

-Please keep in mind I’m a slow painter, it may take me a week or two to complete these.  But hey, you ARE getting them for free. ;)

A cute couple I saw the other night.
