--------------------------------

THIS CONTEST IS NOW OVER! I'LL BE CONTACTING EVERYONE WHO ENTERED.

Prize = $50 or another currency of your choosing

fb4667_e5a33c7a62dd6fce60ec8852778c102d.

This is a new character that I recently acquired. I thought about making her a reference myself, but in the end, I'd rather hold a contest and give someone else money XD So here I am asking all of you lovely people for help!

Female / Border Collie/LabMix / Calm & Detached Personality
India is a border collie who doesn't like to run around and be active. She would much rather sit idly by and watch the world pass her by. She's fun and carefree yet it's hard to convince her to do anything. She would much rather hear fun stories then tell them about herself. India has a photographic memory which causes a lot of people to think she's a genius. She dresses for comfort, not style. She likes to be cozy but often gets too comfortable and falls asleep almost anywhere.

**Notes About India**
-Border Collie/Lab Mix (thick lab body with fluffy border collie parts).
-The ref doesn't show white scleras, but they are white.
-Likes to wear comfy clothing.
-Has short face fur but long body fur.

**Reference Sheet Information**
-One quad image. One anthro image. One facial image.
-One smaller "fun" image.
-Color swatches
-Name/Breed/Gender
-Small blurbs about personality

**Notes from Me**
-You are allowed to revamp the design a bit:
>>>No face markings.
>>>Either get rid of the foot markings or make them leg markings.
>>>No tail tip marking.
>>>Anthro version has no unnatural hair (just the fur on her head)

-This contest ends on 2/15/13. If needed, an extension will be given.
-I don't mind collabing.
-I can send the money in different forms.
-Please save the .psd file!
-If your entry doesn't get chosen, your entry is yours again. I ask that you please remove India's design from the lines.

Prize = $50 or another currency of your choosing

Here's my entry, if it's not too late.
I might edit it a little, I'm not sure if I'm completely satisfied.

I am soooo entering in this, haha :'D
Prepare yourself!
I got some questions through:
*dem circles on her snouts, should they also be drawn as circles or spots?
*should the anthro version of her wearing cloths or not?
*what do you mean by scleras? I'm so dumb hahaha 8D
Reply
:icontoucat:
Toucat Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Hobbyist
Awesome!
*The circles are the artists representation of doggie whiskers, essentially. You don't have to include them =D
* I'd probably prefer her to wear clothes since her design is easy enough to see in the quad version.
*The white parts of eyes. I had to look up the name for it XD

ooooooh i want to enter this only because of the toucat animals that are all over this journal and your icon. like dude those are the most amazing things i've ever seen, oh god. eue
also, fifty dollars would be cool to have but whatevs

I just have some questions.
Mostly only in the 'notes' that you gave.
1. The 'get rid of foot markings' note, does that only apply if we revamp the design? Or do you want either no foot markings or leg markings?
2. No tail tip marking, this is kind of the same question. Do you want her to not have the white tail tip in the ref, or are you saying that IF we change the design, we're not allowed to add tail tip markings?
3. No unnatural hair. Do you mean unnatural like, no unnatural colors or No hair at all period?

Sorry, just making sure I'm reading this right ^^;

Toucat Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Hobbyist
Sorry for my delay in response.
1. Do matter what you decide to do, I'd like the markings to go above the toes/foot.
2. No tail tip, even if you decide to revamp her.
3. This is tricky. You can give her fluffy hair on top of her head that is basically an extension of the fur already there. I was more saying that I don't want to see human hair on the dog. Also, yes, no unnatural colors unless you think it's extremely necessary to the design XD

Glad you asked!

Hey, I'm working on my entry, but I'd just like to know, does it end on February 1st, as in all entries must be turned in before 11:59 on Feb 1, or is it that all entries must be turned in before Feb 1, as in you won't accept entries after 11:59pm tonight?

when you say "one quad image" do you mean we show India from four angles? front, left side, right side, and back? and when you say "anthro" do you mean a dog-like face with a human body? I just want to be clear, in case I have enough time to work on this
