THEME
An artwork of your animal friend

By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.


Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.


Introduce us to your animal friend
It would be nice if you wrote something about your animal friend in your description, but it's not obligatory. Anything you want: their name, age, what kind of animal is it (if it's some unusual, rare one), breed, how you two met, share a story with us. Really, anything you want.


Important!
Since it's very possible to happen, please do not cheat! Have a respect for your fellow entrants and play fair. No artwork of an animal that is not your friend, like your neighbor's gorgeous German Shepard, your friend's hamster, your sister's goldfish you let starve when she's away,  random cute animal you found on the web...You get the point.


CONTEST START / END
Contest Start:  January 29th
Contest End:  April 29th (23:59 pm, GMT+1:00)


RULES


:bulletred:  2 entries maximum per deviant

:bulletred:  This is a traditional art contest only  (drawings, paintings, scratchboard, mixed media, etc. )

:bulletred:  Your entry needs to be specially made for this contest, no entries submitted before January 29th will be accepted nor the entries sent after the contest is closed on March 29th (23:59 pm, GMT+1:00)

:bulletred:  Send a Note with a link or a thumbnail to your entry

How do you mean future animal? Also, there are rules for this contest that need to be followed in order for entries to be accepted and you didn't follow at least 2 of them already. Please read all the rules again carefully and then come back

I was just joking, I knew it can't be :) I drow my tomcat (he is not alive already), but the drawing is too bad to publish. So at least this joke :)

Hhehe you never know on dA :lol: That goat was very suspicions :D But who knows, even if it's very unlikely, if there's even slightest possibility, I don't want to offend someone if a goat is really their true animal friend, so had to write this :D

Heh I understand, I just didn't realize that someone can take it seriously. But good approach, I like it ;)
No I was really joking, I read the rules. What a pity that that Tomcat didn't work for me. Sometimes it happens, I an just a baginner so it can happen, right? Never mind, next time it will be better :)

Since there are three people donating 3-month premium memberships for first place, would the winner be able to request that one membership be given to a deviant of their choice and that the two other 3-month memberships given to the winner themself?
