Character Design and Art Contest -12 month premium

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 17, 2014, 9:27 AM

So. After the hellish week I just had, I need some retail therapy. Except, I don't really like shopping for clothes or other things "normal" people go shopping for. I would love to have a new character design. I have a few I have purchased from some amazing people that are in the works, but I would love something new. After being inspired by a few other people's contests, I have decided to do my own! 


- Must include some sort of usable reference sheet 
- I retain the right to negotiate the purchase of any non-winning designs! (Which means before you sell it elsewhere, I would love the chance to buy it from you. After this though, you are more than welcome to sell them elsewhere)
- Must be on lines that can be used outside of deviant art or custom lines (I prefer custom lines!)
- Must be submitted via comment on this journal by DECEMBER 17th (This is my birthday!)
- (If nothing comes in that I like, I will split prizes between entrants, but I doubt that will be an issue!)
NEW! - You can enter as many designs or as many versions of a design as you like! 

- Must be a horned equine (I don't care what kind of horns! Ram, deer, a variety...)
- Must be somewhat normal colored or patterned
- I love bays, dappled grays, duns, dun patterns, bird catcher spots, bridling, lacing, roans
- I love space, science, ballet, lovecraft, heavy metal, classical and LOTR 
- Unique markings (like a natural skull face or a marking that appears to be some sort of symbol)
- Favorite colors: orange, black, red, ballet pink, earth-tones or rare hues( Colour Theory in a Nutshell )
- Ornate jewelry or headpieces 
- Some feathers in jewelry (not on the body)
- dark body/light hair light body/dark hair contrast
- flowers
- lion tails
- Warmblood, larger builds 
- black and gray chimerism or minimalist paint markings (like up one hip)
- Here are some examples of designs that I love
BP | Golden Cloud by EnharmoniaAssassin's Guild by Fargonon SOLD - adoptable: a fury by perfectperfection Thanatos Earns His Laurels by ReQuay Character Design / Contest by Feathers-Of-Fallen Unicorn adoptables (open) by weremoon

- Non-natural, repeating patterns (so I don't like checkered horses, horses with fishnet stockings, diamond patterns, etc)
- All unnatural colors (so I don't want a purple horse with orange hair)
- Ocean themes ( :| me no likie the sea)
- Wings, because manipping them makes me want to cry
- Overly "themed" - like a horse whose design is clearly based on some pop culture reference
- Any modern related markings (ie words, music notes, medical symbols, gears, clocks, etc you get the idea)
- Appaloosa or strong paint markings 
- Swirls or curly markings 
- chunky armor 
- Arabian, pony, gaited or draft builds
- Palominos, chestnuts, pain black horses
- bird patterns or lots of bird colorations
- I am not going to put examples of designs I am not fond of because I find it rude :) 



- A 12 month premium membership (or $30.00 USD if that is preferred)
- A big ass journal feature from me
- A simple manip from me (if desired) 
(remember that if you win, the character will be mine from then on!)

(or designs that I like still and really want in my arsenal of badass characters)
