Okay guys, it's time to announce the winners! I was really hard to pick, Really really really really really hard. . .
, but I hope you respect my choices!
1st place goes to
I feel she did a good job of showing each characters personalities individually and still being able to show the pairings, albeit subtly, and that's what I like! So congratz on your win!
2nd place goes to
I love the scene she drew for her entry and the way she put a lot of detail into the background. Not to mention she went an extra mile and made it lineless! My favorite part shows the hinting of the triangle pairing of ChiefxDarlingxAwesome and that's what sold me on the picture ^^
3rd place goes to
Her entry was really beautiful and I almost gave it second place but the prior one beat it by just a but. Still, her entry was also lineless and was quite beautifully done, especially the background and shading. I'm also glad she picked General as her entry since he color scheme is blue and blue is my favorite color~
CONGRATULATIONS ON THE WINNERS AND TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED. REMEMBER, EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T WIN, YOU STILL GET A PRIZE FOR PARTICIPATING BUT ONLY TO THOSE WHO ACTUALLY DID AN ENTRY. PLEASE SEND ME YOUR AJ USER AND STATUS SO I CAN GIFT YOU -- OR TRADE -- YOUR PRIZE. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED, THIS WAS REALLY FUN TO DO AND I HOPE WE CAN DO IT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE!
So, I see lots of people doing contests with prizes for spikes, and I figure that I would like to do one as well~ I have three extra spikes (one short collar, one short wrist, one long wrist) that I hardly ever use. I figure it would be best to give them to people who would make better use of them and what better way to do that than hold a contest? I have a few AJ characters you can pick to draw so I will post pictures here for you.
Usually, for my characters, I like to make back stories and give them personalities to make them more, you know, realistic. The characters that you will -- can -- draw are: Awesome FancyWolf, Chief StrongClaws, Count ScaryClaws, Darling IcyLily (SHE RETURNS!), Flora PrettyLily, General SnowyMoon, and Scooter SportyMaster. I will post character references, personalities, and relationships separately. I am adding personalities so you can draw them in a way that would seem more like them (i.e expressions, poses, etc.).

Relationships:Awesome FancyWolf -
Chief StrongClaws: He hates Chief with a strong passion because he knows Darling has a thing for him. Basically, he sees him as a love rival. If it weren't for Darling, they might be friends, but it's doubtful.
Darling IcyLily: He has a major crush on Darling and has had it since they were pups. The locket he wears now was a gift from her from when they were little. He never takes it off and he tries at every opportunity to impress her.
Count ScaryClaws; He doesn't really care much for him but they hang out sometimes. Very rarely. They are impassive with one another.
Flora PrettyLily: Doesn't really care either way. She's just, sort of there. She's basically invisible to him.
General SnowyMoon: She's another friend of his from childhood and they get along well enough. He sees her as more of a sister figure but if Darling wasn't there, like with Chief, he might see her as more.
Scooter SportyMaster: Awesome's best friend through and through. They've been buddies as long as they can remember.Chief Strong Claws
Awesome FancyWolf: Chief hates Awesome simply because the guy always seem to be up in his business. He is confused as to why he always is but the questions are always pertaining to Darling.
Darling IcyLily: A close friend, albeit a bit on the annoying side. Darling is at his side constantly, pestering him, and cracking jokes with him - or more at him. Despite her annoyance, he's fond of her, if only for her company.
Count ScaryClaws: He can appreciate the kindness of the big cat, even though he's highly scary looking. He can see Count has a crush on General, even though he tries to hide it.
Flora PrettyLily: Flora and Chief as close enough as friends. They tell each other small secrets from time to time and it seems whenever Flora is around, Darling gets upset. Chief is confused when this happens because he doesn't understand why she gets angry.
General SnowyMoon: Chief and General aren't very close, nor do they want to be friends. General sees Chief as being rude, since he always ignores people and seems to be glaring at nothing. She just doesn't understand that he is being himself.
Scooter SportyMaster: Despite Awesome's hate for Chief, Scooter doesn't have a problem with Chief, so they get along all right.Darling IcyLily
- (Hers are in first person just because.)
Awesome FancyWolf: "Yeah, he's okay, but he's always trying to impress me with something. It's friggin' annoying and I wish he'd cut it out. He should know I'm the more fabulous of the two of us."
Chief StrongClaws: "He's a jerk, but at least he's hot. I'm always flirting with him but he never, never
, notices and I don't know what the heck to do about it. How else are you suppose to get on the good side of the wolf equivalent of a frozen ice cube?"
Count ScaryClaws: ". . . The dude is scary lookin', yeah, but he's a total softie."
Flora Pretty: "I have but three words; I. Hate. Her."
General SnowyMoon: "Eh, I don't care about her all that much. She needs to realize Count likes her though, seriously."
Scooter SportyMaster: "This is mah bro, here! He holds the best parties ever!"Count ScaryClaws
Awesome FancyWolf: Count finds him rather rude and brash, but they hang out together sometimes. Sometimes
Chief StrongClaws: They get along all right. Or, at least, Count likes to think so.
Darling IcyLily: Count finds her mean, as with Awesome, but he knows that's just her personality and he can accept that.
Flora PrettyLily: Not much is ever said between them, so they have no relationship.
General SnowyMoon: It's a known fact by everyone, except for General herself, that Count has a major crush on the fox. General once saved him from bullies because of his frightening looks and he's admired her ever since.
Scooter SportyMaster: Scooter is pretty much nice to everyone so they get along well enough.Flora PrettyLily
Awesome FancyWolf: She doesn't like him. End of story.
Chief StrongClaws: They talk with one another, give each other advice, share secrets. Darling doesn't like, Flora can tell.
Darling IcyLily: Flora is aware of Darling's liking of Chief, but she thinks the wolf should turn down her jealousy.
General SnowyMoon: They are good friends with one another and like to shop together.
Count ScaryClaws: He scares her a bit, but she can see his good side.
Scooter SportyMaster: Everyone gets along with him, as does Flora. Still, he seems to get embarrassed around her quite easily. It confuses her.General SnowyMoon
-Awesome FancyWolf: They are close and General sees him as a younger brother figure, even though he hates being the 'younger' of the two.Chief StrongClaws: General finds Chief rude and arrogant but she doesn't understand that is his personality.Darling IcyLily: They don't get along too well, but there is no hate between them.Flora PrettyLily: They are basically best friends.
Count ScaryClaws: General, in secret, likes Count, but she's afraid of what others may say if she were to say anything, so she keeps quiet.Scooter SportyMaster: As said before, everyone likes Scooter.
-Awesome FancyWolf: Best friends! Awesome is always entertaining Scooter's guests at his parties. They love to hang out.Chief StrongClaws: Scooter doesn't have a problem with Chief so they can stand each other.Darling IcyLily: Scooter sees Darling as a party animal that loves to dance. She can be a bit on the flirty side but Awesome is basically her male counterpart, so he has no problems with it.Flora PrettyLily: Flora is Scooter's crush. He's planning to confess but he doesn't seem to know how, so he stays quiet.
Count ScaryClaws: Scooter actually likes Count and has no problems with his appearance. It's not Count's fault he was born scary looking; all that matters is his personality.
General SnowyMoon: They get along well.
