:iconexplodelaplz:That’s right, it’s finally time for our inaugural contest! :iconexplodelaplz:

This contest runs from the 16th of March until midnight on the 17th of May.



What do you have to do?

:bulletred: Design us a mascot pony! Yes, it’s really that simple!
:bulletblack: For the record, it was HaterzGonnaHatez who came up with the idea- head over to her page and give her some love. :meow:

What are the guidelines?

:bulletred: She MUST be a girl! This isn’t Equestria-Boys, after all :giggle:
:bulletblack: She can be any kind of pony, whether unicorn, pegasus or even alicorn!
:bulletred: You can only enter ONCE, so do do your best!
:bulletblack: You must provide a clear idea of what she looks like- after all, it’s hard to judge if she can be a good mascot if I can’t see her cutie mark or any other distinctive features!
:bulletred: You don’t have to provide a backstory or character bio, just a picture; of course, you can still provide a bio if you reeeaally want, but it won’t count for anything extra.
:bulletblack: Keep in mind that adding excess shit on top of excess shit is no substitute for an original design- sometimes less is more!

What about the prizes?

At the moment, the prizes are as follows:
:star: First Place :star:
:bulletred: 3 month premium subscription from Borbonne-le-Bonne
:bulletred: One free lineart from Borbonne-le-Bonne
:bulletred: 200 :points: A full digital with up to two characters and a full background from onyx-bison
:bulletred: A fully coloured digital piece from RandomRobskii
:star: Second Place :star:
:bulletblack: One month premium membership from Borbonne-le-Bonne
:bulletblack: One free lineart from Borbonne-le-Bonne
:bulletblack: 100 :points: A full digital with up to two characters and no background from onyx-bison
:bulletblack: A lineart from RandomRobskii
:star: Third Place :star:
:bulletred: 200 points from Borbonne-le-Bonne
:bulletred: One free lineart from Borbonne-le-Bonne
:bulletred: 50 :points: A full traditional with no background from onyx-bison
:bulletred: A sketch from RandomRobskii

Those are all the prizes available at the moment, but if you want to add to the prize pool, feel free! And if you do, drop a line to Borbonne-le-Bonne- she might be able to hook you up with something cool! :iconparadummyplz:

Extra Credit

If you’re feeling a bit worried that your skills aren’t good enough to win you anything (God, do I know that feeling :stare:), you can, along with your main entry, make a trotter icon of your mascot design, and that’ll net you ten points from Borbonne-le-Bonne right away, regardless of the quality/design of your mascot! :) Also, each and every entrant will get 10 points form onyx-bison- so go give her some love! :la:

So get going, people! :iconshaplz: And good luck, everyone!

Lol, yeah, there are getting to be quite a few!

I also see you have pushed the date back from the 16th to the 17th. Is there any reason in particular for that?

Well, I just realized that my first appointment with my psychiatrist is on the 16th, and I tend to forget all about other stuff when important things happen, so I thought I'd give myself a day's grace. ^^;

Well, it says it can be any sort of pony, so I picked a filly, rather then grown, why not? She can grow with the group ;)

I submitted three pieces: A Pony, a trotter icon, as well as a group icon based on my entrant's cutie mark. I hope you like them, even if you don't end up using them. :)

I've finished the image, and I'm also making a trotter icon. The icon is nearly finished, I just need to make some adjustments and I'll submit it! :)

I don't have a name for her, partly because I feel the mods should have the right to name her. ... and I wasn't sure how to Ponify the name She-Ra. XD

It's kind of a bit of both. ^^; I mean, the idea does count for a lot, but at the same time, people would object if something that looks like a pile of shit won... you know?

Nah, don't worry, it'll have about 4 legs and a mane, so people should be able to tell it's a pony with just a little help from the description.


BTW: You're icon is really freaking me out. :iconyao-mingplz:
