Contest Time! (1 Entry!)

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 1, 2014, 8:26 PM


It's been a long, long time since I held a contest.  And what better time to do it than as we're heading in to Winter!

The Theme:

Sun Celebrating Summer Sun 



Deadline: January 1, 2015 12:00AM US-EST (-5 GMT)
(That's 5:00AM GMT!)

Bunting Divider by Kezzi-Rose

So, for many of us in the northern hemisphere, it's cold.  I say forget you, autumn and winter!  It's time to start thinking of beaches, sunny days, and other things which aren't winter.  ...Right?  Who cares if it's the wrong time of year!


The task at hand:

Draw one (or more) of the following characters in the summer.  This could be at the beach, or stargazing, or camping, or whatever!
You can include other characters from their world, of course.


If you really want, you can also include your own original characters -- but please, be sure to feature at least one of the characters below!

Even though the characters come from a fantasy world, please feel free to change up the setting!


If you need some ideas to get started, here's some information you might find useful:


:bulletred: Keiji doesn't really care about what season it is.  He's the type of guy who'll go out on hikes and enjoy the wilderness if he can.  You can find him out on clear nights stargazing.  He's the most likely to play with small children.
Keiji by kabocha

:bulletorange: Yuki loves summer.  For her, it means being outside in the sun, warm days, and just plain ol' fun.  She's been to the beach a few times, and finds it more fun to play pranks on people with her illusion magic.  She's the most likely to play in a fountain!
Yuki by kabocha

:bulletyellow: Fox hates the heat, and would rather be inside with his books, in the shade.  Spoilsport.  He's prone to sunburn easily, though he's up for a good swim if he can get away with it.  He's the most likely to fall asleep outside with a book.
Fox by kabocha

:bulletgreen: Aster greatly prefers cold weather.  Even so, she enjoys going out and doing things like watching the lightning bugs with her sister, Kei.  She cannot swim, and is afraid of deep water!  She's the most likely to cook all the food for a picnic.
Aster by kabocha

:bulletblue:  Doran finds summertime to be pretty much the same as any other time of year.  He'd love to spend his time with Aster (and maybe some other ladies), if they'd just stick around...  He would find getting into a splash fight to be quite ungentlemanly.  He's the most likely to get dunked at the beach.
Doran by kabocha

:bulletpurple: Mara enjoys relaxing during the summer.  She doesn't like bugs, being in the grass, or humidity, but other than that, summer's great!  She enjoys bonfires on summer nights, when she can share scary stories with people.  She's the most likely to have a first-aid kit on hand.
Mara by kabocha

I'm glad you like them!  :D  They're small, but they don't photograph all that well...   But I'm really happy you like them!  Hopefully they didn't get wet in the rain or anything. X_X

Also, thank you!  :D  It almost makes me want to go through and prune my gallery a bit...  Haha...

Ooh, that would be awesome!  :D  I usually just put them in hard trading card holders, but framing them would be pretty neat, too!
