Oh my gosh! A thousand! That's like. Ten hundreds. Or a hundred tens. Or one thousand ones. And I passed thirty thousand pageviews ._. I'm just a little in shock. Two'n a half years I've been plushing, and I finally hit this super huge milestone X3 Had it not been for all you who've watched me, I wouldn't be plushing today.
And so now, I give back to you, the watchers. In this, the Double Backstitch Arts 1k watcher plush contest!
What's the prize before I start spouting rules? Why it's a pony of your choosing. Anypony (within plushable reason) besides the princesses (Twi is still fine though, wings or wingless). And not just any anypony, but my first ever 1/4 scale pony (if it's a mare that'll be 11 inches tall). I'll plush mane six, background characters, OCs, stallions or mares- will I plush them? Feel free to ask! There will be only one plush winner... but three runner-up prizes.
The runner up prizes will be drawings draw'd by me. Yes, I can draw. After the grand prize winner is picked, I'll pick three runner-ups who I'll draw whatever they want (within reason).
How do you enter?
Well first you have to be watching me. This is a watcher contest, after all.
After you've made sure you've pushed the watch button, post a journal on your own page explaining briefly that I'm having a contest and provide a link back to this journal.
Now you can create your submission! And your submission can be anything. Art, craft, music, video, a game, sketches, baking (pics of baked goods only; I'll take your word on the taste
), interpretive dance, papercrafts, anything. Just so long as you've put your best into it. It has to have heart, and it has to fit the theme. What theme?
Your submission has to have something to do with one of my ponies. You've got two to pick from, either Double Backstitch:
Or Latent Promise:
You can do whatever you want with them, but I should hope it stays roughly "in character". If you've got a submission idea and want to run it by me, feel free to. One condition, no nsfw of Backstitch. But you can do something with your pony or ponies and mine, or just something involving one of mine, or really anything. Use your beautiful imaginations! If you're really short for ideas, Promise has a special somepony named Trick Shot
(belonging to wilshirewolf
) ~ ,^
With your submissions, it'd be wonderful if you would give a rationale on why you did what you did. Conveying the reasoning behind what you made will really help my understanding the soul of it. If you don't want to explain yourself, and prefer to have your submission stand on its own, that's fine too.
So! That's that. The start for the contest is now, and the deadline for submissions is my birthday, August 6th, so I won't be taking submissions from the 7th onward. Submissions can be sent in by note, link me to whatever it might be you've done and I'll save it in my newly made submissions folder! (for physical craft things, you don't have
to mail it to me XD) I'll take a few days to a week to judge the submissions (depending on how many I get) and then I'll decide who gets the plush and who gets the pics.
If you've any questions that this doesn't answer, ask in the comments or by note. Questions on my ponies can be asked too, and about the prizes if I wasn't clear enough on them.
Thank you all for all these watches, and views, and everything! Good luck, and I can hardly wait to see what you wonderful folks can come up with ^ ,^
