I have been thinking for a while to open an art contest and here I am finally gathered the courage to host it
This will be my first time hosting an art contest!
I look forward to seeing all the beautiful and gorgeous entries!
by the way, don't hesitate to ask me about the characters, show me wips, ask questions, I encourage it actually, just don't expect me to respond asap because I am busy with my life! however I will try to get back to you in a timely manner
How to enter:
1. [single - couple -group art]
[portrait- waist - thighs up - full body - full illustration] all accepted
just focus on the quality of your art more than anything else
please do not draw characters together if their star color is different. for example, do not draw a yellow star character with a pink star character. thanks! however Drawing couples / groups doesn't guarantee that you'll place in the contest. Focus on the quality of your art!
You can see all the selected characters in this toyhou.se folder
keep in mind all characters are male except for Ivory, she's the only female character listed
no genderbending the characters at all, please keep them in their real gender when you draw them, thank you!
Yellow stars can be drawn together / brown stars can be drawn together / red stars can be drawn together/ pink stars can be drawn together, different stars are solo
If it’s mentioned in their profile that they are paired with a character I don’t own, you can still draw them with them if you’re planning to do couple art
