[!CONTEST!] Draw our ponies together! (Over!)DUE DATE: AUGUST 7th, 2014!
Hello, guys! Welcome to my contest journal! This is my first ever personal contest, I hope you guys are as excited as I am!
Okay! The contest is officially over! Thanks so much to all of you who participated! I'll be judging the entries and you will hear back from me by Sunday or Monday!
Everyone who entered the contest will receive a free sketch! It doesn't have to be a pony, either! ♥
I'll be noting the winners after I make my final decision, and then noting the entrants for details on the sketches.
It's been a long 2 months for me, but I'm so glad to have had this contest!
Alright guys! At 11 pm EST tonight I will be closing up my contest! If you don't have your entries in, you still have until then to put them up! After this there will be no extensions.
8/5/14: Time's almost up, folks! Get your entries in if you haven't already!
8/2/14: 5 more days! There will not be any more extensions after this,
Okay! First off, I'd like to thank everyone
that joined my contest. Let me tell you, this was not easy. AT ALL.
I had a lot of trouble figuring out the places for everyone's entries! I absolutely loved all the entires that I got for my contest. Every one! It was soo hard, I'm serious LOL
I'll be sending notes to everyone who won. and all the entrants to the contest for their sketches!
Nooooow, without further ado... The winners!
First PlaceTea Party Ponies by SkywardMeganium!
I absolutely love this piece. I talked with Emi over it, and she thinks this image deserves first place as well.
The colors are amazing, and I'm a shoe-in for traditional works in colored pencil. The story under the image is adorable as well! I'm just smitten with the piece overall. Skyward captured Bloom's personality perfectly!
Second PlaceTHIEF by YouGotJinxed!
I loved both of Jinx's entries, but this one is definitely deserving of a top spot. The lighting, the action, and just the overall concept of the piece are fantastic! I never even thought of someone using Rare Elegance in a thief's attire!
Third PlaceHonorables-Caballeros by kyle23emma!
I was really stuck with third place, because so many entries we so awesome, but I had to pick this one. The composition is awesome, and it's a very different style! The colors pop to me, and the poses are great!
What's a good contest without Honorary Mentions?
These are all entries I had trouble deciding on! Because I loved them so much, I ultimately decided on giving them at least an honorable mention! The concepts were all awesome, my OCs were done perfectly. uvu
If your entry didn't end up here, it's not because I didn't like it! I seriously had a reaally hard time choosing!
Conclusions and Closing Statements
Thank you so much to everyone who entered my contest. I seriously loved every entry I got, and I'm going to finally
comment on all of them! It'll take me some time, but it's a promise. But seriously, thank you thank you thank youuuuu!!
This was my first contest, so while I had fun this was definitely a learning experience. My next contest probably won't be pony-related, but I'm not sure, yet!
Also, I do need to say this as a caution (though I doubt I'll have any issues!);
If you didn't win, please don't cry or get mad! Contests are always a competition, and competition has winners and not-winners. Just because you didn't win anything, doesn't mean I didn't love your entry.
I'm sorry to all those who didn't get their images in on time! I'd still love to see them if you want to submit them. ♥ I'm always a sucker for fanart (and I may still give you a sketch!)
Thanks so much everyone! I'll be sending all those notes now LOL ♥
