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

Ugh, so glorious stressers popped up and about and the deadline for this is coming--
And now I'm just making sure so I don't rush finishing it and fuck up or waste my time, what /timezone/ are you in? Because it might hit May 14th for you before it does for me, or after (which would be lovely~ -shot-) And like, what time exactly would you be closing it? May 14th 11:59 or May 13th 11:59 (Midnight, basically but just being clearer on days and--) Yeah ewe timezones are tricky.

Hi! Umm...I don't think I saw this in the questions section of the journal, but if so...sorry. ^^;

Still, I'm entering three times. For one of my entries, I was wondering if I could draw him with his older self...? Have you designed a cutie mark in that case...? Or do you think he still wouldn't have one...? If you're not sure and I'm allowed, I'll just try not to draw his cutie mark—like covering it with his bag or tail.

...Is that okay...?
Sorry to bother you. ^^;

Oh and would you like to be friends? :dummy:
Reply
:iconsecret-pony:
secret-pony Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yes, you may draw him with his older self.
No, I don't have a cutie mark for him.
No, I don't know if he'll just won't have one. so a blank flank is fine.

Asking to be friends seems a bit weird, doesn't it? ^^;

:iconkuku88:
kuku88 Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome! Thanks for answering my questions. :dummy:
Sorry if I'm being an annoyance, but I'm just wondering if you can draw him as a human...? Just a thought. ^^;

Sorry that you think so! I just like making friends. ^^;
I suppose it is, but I like asking to see if people are open to the idea. If they say yes, then we can get to know each other. If they say no, I'd wonder if they're okay with getting to know each other and maybe becoming friends, or they'd rather flat-out refuse. Thing is, I don't want to annoy people if they flat-out don't want to be my friend. ^^;
Would you like to get to know each other, at least? :)

:iconsecret-pony:
secret-pony Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Student Digital Artist
You can draw him however you like. :3
But I don't have a human design for him either.

I'm open to get to know anyone
but if they ask it first, it feels kinda forced already... imo. friendship should be spontaneous. If people don't want that spontaneous contact with you, they'll show and then that's the equivalent of a no to your question... without risking a fraction of people who would be put off simply by the question alone :nod:

kuku88 Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks again! I'll try coming up with something and hoping you like it. xD ^^;

I know, I feel that way too. I'm honestly shy as a person, but I know I CAN get clingy or annoying. I don't want to bother anyone like that on here, so I like asking people first just in case. Bothering people on their page might make them think I'm annoying, and then they'd probably wouldn't want to get to know me as a person. ^^;
I just like knowing whether or not they're open to the idea. If they say no but are willing to get to know me, all's good. If they say yes, we get to know each other and all's good. If they say no 'cause they think I'm a creep or they just don't like me, I suppose I could move on and not annoy them, and all's good. ^^; :meow:

So is me getting to know you okay, or do you find that kind of thing to get annoying after awhile? ^^;

:iconsecret-pony:
secret-pony Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Well... I think it's feeling really forced now.
You're welcome to just socialize anytime,
but to seek contact with the goal of becoming friends, and repeatedly pointing it out, it's so forced... I would advice you to stop doing that ^^;
Reply
:iconkuku88:
kuku88 Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh no no no, I'm not trying to come across as forced. It's just sometimes hard to be clear. I try not to, but I get confused easily if answers are unclear. ^^;
Really sorry; I'm still pretty young—but if you get to know me, I won't be such a bother. ^^;
