Now that things are coming to a close, thank you so, so very much to everyone who has submitted an entry. I am really overwhelmed and so incredibly blessed! I'm amazed at how much time, how much hard work, and how creative everyone's entries are. I really think I may have to pay this debt with my s


Also, if anybody is wondering, this character is a Galatier, a closed species also by Yukibuns. Species information: yukibuns.deviantart.com/journa…



When I think about OCs, I want to crawl under a rock.
Explanation: I don't draw mine enough. Also, some people are scary good at designing, it's amazing *^*

Sooo I finished this a few days ago, but for the sake of posting I decided to clean it up a bit, since I rushed some parts during the process to meet the deadline (o v o)b
In all honestly I based this drawing on about.... two quotes from this character's profile:
        a.) "generally calm, wise, thoughtful, jaded"
        b.) "co-pilot aka star dad"

Some part of my brain decided that these qualities made him the type to sit among the stars and think about water and flowers, but hey, the heck do I know. It's a bit of a stretch, but so are half the things I think, so I hope it's still... Enough of a fit, I suppose.

I will admit, ALL of Yuki's characters are gorgeous, and it was hard to pick. But from the very beginning, I resolved to draw a male character, despite EVERY female character in that gallery being right up my alley (except maybe one). Why? For the sake of proving to the world that I can draw guys decently. A lot of people have told me they want to commission me for female characters in the future -- and don't get me wrong, I love drawing pretty girls -- but nobody has even mentioned a male character to me, which I decided to take as a challenge. Granted, I still have a much better understanding of girls, and they do tend to fit my design tastes better, but... I don't want to limit myself that way.

When it comes to the contest, I'm literally a speck of dust among giants -- I feel like half of the powerhouses who I actively keep an eye on entered it LOL. Even so, it was fun to participate in. Thank you so much for hosting, Yuki, and I hope you (and everyone else who sees this) enjoys this piece!

yah yah * ^ * you can go sooo much further with a good composition compared to just good artwork alone!! 
#truth!!! 
cuz it's more appealing and interesting to stare at and thus drawing the viewers in * ^ *
which is usually the whole point of an artwork :0 at least to some extent
Ahh Glad to make your day ^ -^)/)

LOL YES IT WAS IN ALL HONESTY! PERFECT! IT was just too brilliant! I applaud to you! you make my day xD<3

Mmhm, if the composition is off it can really throw everything else off too @.@ so you got it!
Drawing viewers in is pretty hard though, I hope my tactics worked //smacked

LOL THANK YOU THANK YOU XD I AM GLAD YOU THINK SO
Pff you too <33

I'm also glad to hear you managed to catch the deadline!
It came out beautiful, Berry! I die every time I look at those colors and water- He ended up really nice looking, and I wish you luck on your journey to improve males! I should probably keep working on that as well...
You suffered so much for this piece.. ;v;

AAA yeah I came in super late, think I was the very last entry to make it LOL 
Thank you so much!! I'm super glad you think so ;;w;; but please dun die I need you around to remind me to save //tries to prop you up
YESSS I WANNA SEE YOU DRAW GUYS -- it's not too bad, should be fun hohohoho~
pls I suffer loads for every piece, makes me wonder why I still draw sometimes, but meh -- it always ends up with me accidentally seeming maso af 8D

You live your life on the edge, Berry.
Also, maybe... I already have been attempting a couple times, but the boys I draw are always slightly (really-) feminine pretty boys. Oh well, we can try together- ;v;
"accidentally seeming maso af" Are you sure you aren't maso?
"
I resolved to draw a male character, despite EVERY female character in that gallery being right up my alley" Berry is the true maso here. You did well, though~
That's right, my job of being a save reminder is more important than dying-

Ahh yes, I'm pretty sure you know how I function with deadlines -- 
And pfffffffff pretty boys are fine, after some practice, one day you might even be able to draw bara men //slapped to the moon

AND HEY IT WAS AN ACCIDENT I THINK since these male characters fit me well stylistically too -- rare that I find male designs this... drawable
There was actually another one ( toyhou.se/361001.sol ) I wanted to draw, but I decided on this guy because the other one isn't wearing a shirt and I haven't seen enough of muscular, shirtless guys to know how that would work :3c
As for dying YOU HAVE PLENTY OF THINGS TO LIVE FOR -- being a save reminder for the lot of us just happens to be one of them :>

I get my kick from making projects and promises with others, personal projects don't really have enough drive for me. Though I do still attempt to do one every couple of months. Bara men... dream goal made.

The fancy designs are always nice, either that very simple designs.
Hoho, that one has a nice design too, but what are abs...
I'm also happy to hear that, Berry, especially since that saying save has become muscle memory, and I've been instinctively been saying it in conversation. ;v;

Huffs that's why you keep drawing for us, isn't it =w= Putting yourself through suffering smhhhh
If one of your future projects is bara men... This should be even more fun than I thought LOL

Mm I love more unique designs, which, more often than not, involves fanciness LOL but simple, cute ones are great stress relief~
Yessss his design is super nice also but I was like... Abs???? Chest???? HAHAHAHA oop //hand slips and closes the page
LMAO IT BECAME A HABIT //patpats -- ohmg Cream what would we do without you

Shhhh, Berry, don't blow my cover! Though I honestly do enjoy drawing for others and dying afterwards~ No bara men for now, just pretty boys, haha. --oneday--
  The piling on of detail usually does result in fanciness. as it's a bit harder to be unique with simple designs nowadays, but it's still very possible.
I HAVE A NEW MISSION FOR YOU, BERRY. Doodle abs and muscles and refine your skill, make others around you judge you- I BELIEVE IN YOU.
Mhm, it did become a habit, I would be in the room with my sister and there would be an awkward silence. It would just come out automatically. "Remember to save." "...what?" "..."
You would all be crying at the crashes and lost data- Or you know, learn how to save consistently. =v=

HNN so you really are the most maso of us all :3c and ahaha alright, no bara men for now~

Well, there are really simple and cute characters out there >w< so those are still fun
OHMG well ok it's not like I don't wanna learn but a.) THAT TAKES TIME and b.) I LIVE WITH JUDGEMENTAL HUMANS //rUNS

jfc Cream... that's next level LOL your poor sister --
And yes, yes we would. You didn't show up once while Mizu was drawing, and she lost her file ;;w;;
knowing us it might... take...... like a while........ to learn anything............
