Q & A

Q: Can I join?
A: You don't have to ask, just get drawing!

Q: May I draw canon ponies/other OC's with Pack Rat?
A: Yes, you may.

Q: I don't draw, can I write something in stead?
A: I would like to give all forms of art an equal chance, but I personally don't like reading... so, that's not really working in your favour. (In short: don't waste your time.)
Maybe if music is your thing, you could try that. (Not sure what that would end up like, though...).


Q: How many times can I enter?
A: You can enter as many times as you want (or physically can).

Q: Can you give me some pose ideas?
A: Nope, work that brain of yours yourself! There's plenty of reference material to sketch Pack Rat's personality. ^^

Q: NSFW?
A: I'm not easily offended by... pretty much anything. But don't involve my precious Packers in it. (means "No!")

Q: Anthro?
A: Go right ahead.

Q: How will the winners be decided?
A: Personal preference. Me and a select group of close friends will decide which entry we like best.

Q: What if I win, but I don't want the premium, can I have the points in stead?
A: Sure.

Q: What if I win, but my OC isn't a pony, but another species.
A: All MLP related species are fine. (Though keep in mind, if it's not in my gallery, I haven't drawn it yet, so the result might be a bit dissapointing.)

Q: What if I win, but I don't have an OC.
A: Make one of your friends happy by requesting one of theirs. Or have your fav canon ponies drawn in any way you want (SFW).

Q: I have another question.
A: Comment and I'll answer



Other information:

Pony creator images, usage of bases and recolors of existing images (even with permission) are not acceptable as valid entries.
All entries must be made specifically for this contest (put it somewhere in the description).
Previously made drawings or drawings I commissioned will not count.
All rules are subject to change.
Prizes may increase, if/when I have the funds.

I hope that covered everything.
