Just a reminder folks, the Original Character portion of the contest is still running!

Just to be clear, here's the breakdown of the contest:

The goal is to make a Gala Outfit Design for an original character pony. Best design gets 1,200 :points:!!!

-The only rule is that it must be someone else's OC! A lot of people were disqualified for doing their own characters for this! So, it NEEDS to be someone else's!



-You can put in as many designs for as many characters as you want, so long as they aren't yours.

REMEMBER! You CANNOT put in YOUR OWN OC OR PERSONA It MUST be SOMEONE ELSE'S!

-I' going to offer you some of the administrator's ponies up for you guys to choose from. Don't know anyone with an OC to draw? These characters are available for free range; you don't have to ask. If you're going to use anyone else's characters, you MUST ask. But these ones, you do not. So, here they are:

Zillah the Zebracorn by Wooden-Flashlight Siren Ref by Fluffomaru Arctic Fluff ref .2 by Fluffomaru CFP by Wooden-Flashlight Riarkraa by Mereneth Ohgod Pony Buttercream by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL :thumb310959630: Belle Rose ID by xenacee

Please do not go advertising your own OC or offering or asking it to be put here. That accomplishes nothing. Anyone who advertises their character in the comments will be banned from entering the contest as will their character. The characters put here belong to the staff and are here for people to choose from if they can't think of or are too afraid to ask anyone to use their characters.



The OC portion of the Gala contest is re-opened, and will go until January 1st and after that we will not be opening it again!

If you have any questions, please note myself, :iconwooden-flashlight: with your inquiries. That goes for the group as a whole, too, not just the contest!

Um...What do I do?
I uploaded my original today and submitted it, but the preview wasn't working, so I deleted it and reuploaded it...The limitations isn't allowing me to resubmitt it into the folder. -sigh- I guess it's my fault for getting it in so late.

What about just saying you'd like to do someone's OC, is that okay?
I don't know anyone with a pony OC that would be okay with me using them. :bored:

Hi!

Do you support doing sculpture/custom toy work as well? I'd love to do my friend's OC and I do my work in customs.
I could knock out his christmas gift with the same stone, too, haha! :XD:

I'm not sure. You tell me.

No reason to be rude. :/ it's better that they ask NOW instead of breaking the rules due to a misunderstanding.

This person was being rude by asking the already busy mods for the group to answer a question they already answered (three times, once in all caps). It's presumptuous and entitled on their part.

Rudeness is repaid with rudeness.

olipes Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Student General Artist
Dont ever fault a person for asking a question when something is misunderstood. Granted, the answer was already provided, but it was hardly RUDE of them to ask.

This is the internet, so calm down. As a mod for another page, I would much rather answer a question in the beginning than explain why someone is disqualified AFTER they spent so much effort in creating something for ME in a contest.

No. You cannot use a pony of your own design. You must design an outfit for someone else's pony.

yes yes.. i've read it. but this is a Gala dress contest, so it should be a dress for Mare... but should we make the pony also, or just the dress...?
Reply
:iconwooden-flashlight:
Wooden-Flashlight Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
No. It's not a Gala dress contest. It's for all gendered ponies. And you can just draw the dress if you want but it would look better if you drew it on the pony.

It would probably be best to draw the pony of choice wearing the dress for more easier identification.

It's an outfit contest mostly, you only create the clothing. It can be a dress for a mare or a tux for a stallion, whatever, but it must be drawn on someone else's original character. Is that clear enough yet?
