Update #2: That's it! It's over! It'll take us some time to judge so feel free to submit an entry before we do so, we'll accept late entries! Thank you for entering for all who have!

Update: So... we kind of forgot about the due date (I swear I thought it was going to go for another week) and since we didn't give anybody a proper warning, we're going to give you one more week to work on your entries if you've yet to submit them.

It’s time once again! Contest time (sooner than I thought, but still, I love doing these)! This time, things are a bit different, I’m teaming up with :iconvchart920: to give you more prizes, more options, and points! This contest is like the last, but tweaked to be better and more efficient! All you have to do is create something that fits into one of the following categories we’ll list below and must include our OCs. Anything goes like last time, written pieces (which I personally love), comics, drawings (of course), even music, animation (even quick animatics count), and voice acting! Before we delve into that, let’s go over the rules!



    1.  All entries must include at least one OC from one of us. Example: Azure (mine) and Mernah (hers) in a piece or Gloomy (mine) and Harmony and Dissonance (hers) in a piece

    2.  We’re ok with bases being used, but no pony generator please

    3.  No NSFW pieces, some gore is fine, but nothing too explicit

    4.  You can include your OC(s), but our OCs must be the dominate part or, at least, have an important and meaningful part

    5.  You will be judged on several things
              Technique/ Style: /10
              Concept: /10
              Originality: /10
              Quality: /10
              Personal Bias: /10
    6.  You are allowed three (3) entries to submit

    7.  All your submissions will be accounted for, but only one can win

    8.  All entries are due: October 9nd, which is a Saturday which is nice


With that out of the way, let’s take a look at prizes!


Grand Prize for Best Over All Piece

From :iconpretty-pegasus-wings::

Something like this:

A fully body with background (can be my regular style, fancy style, or somewhat realistic fancy style, that last one still needs a name)

Your OC gets an official meeting with my OC, Azure, and will be integrated into The Traveling Storyteller

From :iconpretty-pegasus-wings::

A fully body in my fancy/somewhat fancy realistic style

A fully body piece (2 slots)

A head shot (2 slots)

Your OC meets Azure, but will most likely not be integrated into The Traveling Storyteller (2 slots)

A written piece

An icon

A Sketch of your OC (2 slots, or you can have a bunch of random sketches, but they'll all be in a sketchy style of sorts)


From :iconvchart920::

A full body detailed no background 

A head shot, normal or vinyl style

Your Oc meets one of mine, written or drawn

A very simple animated icon

A sketch of your Oc

A written piece

And any point prizes:





That’s it for prizes, and it may change as we gain points and the like. Now, for the categories.


A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words: This category is for the best overall draw piece! We’ll be judging by the style, the overall quality, concept, uniqueness, accuracy to the characters, and personal love for it. (Pick three prizes)

The Pen’s Mightier than the Sword: This category is for the best written piece! We’ll be judging by accuracy to the characters (how well you’ve captured them, accuracy to their background and the like, even the way they speak and act), the story (it’s plot and all that), concepts introduced, the overall writing quality, and grammar. (Pick three prizes)

IT’S ALIVE!: This category is for all the animators, voice actors and the like! We want you to bring our characters to life be it through a full out animation, animatic, two frame gif, or even through things like voice acting (giving them a voice, you can read quotes from them and the like. We’ll be judging on how well you’ve captured them, overall quality of the piece, concept, and the smoothness of the transitions if it is a couple frame gif or just how well it’s all laid out. (Pick four prizes)

Ships Ahoy!: We love ships, we have lots of ships, we’d love to see more pictures of these ships! This goes to the best ship picture! We’ll be judging based on how well you’ve capture our characters, how well you’ve captured their dynamic, concept, and overall quality of the piece. (Pick three prizes)

Comic Sans: This goes to the best comic! We’ll be judging on how well you’ve captured our characters, concept, the flow from panel to panel, the scenario you’ve set up, and overall quality of the piece. (Pick three prizes)

It’s Liquid Pride!: This goes to that one amazing piece that really inspired us! It can be a piece that made us cry, it could be something that was so well made, we had to give you something even if it’s not the best, it could be something that really got us thinking (like some AU or story we want to expand on or something that inspired us to draw or create something). As for judging this, it’ll just be a personal thing we pick, but good ideas, stories, character based things, that really gets us thinking. (Pick two prizes)

The Special Snowflake: This goes to the most unique piece, the one that is unlike any other! The most standout piece will get this one. It’s unlike the Liquid Pride one as that one inspires us while this one puts us to shame for how unoriginal we are. Think outside of the box, create something nobody else has or something we’ve never seen, go wild! (Pick three prizes)

Cracking the Funny Bone: This one goes to the funniest piece! If yours manages to make us cry just from how funny it is, then you’ve got a good chance of winning. Humor is subjective, keep that in mind. (Pick two prizes)


And then there’s the best overall entry! This one doesn’t really need a title or anything, it’s the one we’ve both deemed to be the best. There isn’t much to this really, it’s just the best, it in-cooperates everything we look for/love into one piece. That winner gets the grand prize!


That’s it for the categories. Linked/listed below are some things that can help you such as links to our characters and a resources page (bios, character relations, that sort of thing) to help you with your entry or entries! Have fun and good luck!

OC Resources:


pretty-pegasus-wings has started a donation pool!
1,488 / 2,500
I would like to gather some points for a contest I'd like to hold, it'd be nice if you could donate some points. You can also pay for commissions here.

For those who donate:

You get a llama badge (if I have yet to give you one) and a big thank you for any points donated!

If you donate 100 points or more, you get a special shout out when I post the journal for the contest.

If you donate 250 points or more, you can have a simple request, like a drawing of your OC or a short story/bio of some sort.

If you donate 500 points or more, you can have one of your OCs meet Azure or her gender bend, Welkin.

Not like this will ever happen, but, if you donate 1000 points or more, you're nuts, and you get to have any kind of request you want (animated or otherwise).

Any amount would be wonderful, even just one point!

MYO Entry: Madam Morpho Ref Sheet by pretty-pegasus-wings
MYO Entry: Madam Morpho Ref Sheet
Finally got this done after months and months of thought! I'm really happy with how this came out and I'm excited to see how she does! She was, of course, based off the butterfly of the same name. Originally, she was to be based off the Monarch butteryfly and was called Madam Monach, but I felt this looked nicer and so, some things in her story had to be changed; just a fun fact!

This is an myo entry for :iconsneakyskybison:'s Masquerade species which she created and owns, they are a closed species.

Check out the contest here: pretty-pegasus-wings.deviantar…

Bio to come soon!
Hi! I'm so, so, so sorry for being silent to many for so, so long. I really did want to answer many of you, but unfortunately, school decided to drop a load on me this month. This is the first weekend in a while where I'm actually relaxing which is nice. So, some updates. Yes, the contest has ended. Since I've been busy with school as well as other things, we haven't found time to do any judging. Your entries are super amazing and it's going to be difficult to decide which one, this may be closer than the last one was which is exciting! You can still submit your entry if you still want to, it may be a while, it may be Sunday when we decide depending on how I feel, I've just been so tired. Fortunately, things will be clearing up soon. Also, I'm so sorry to the entrants for not being responsive! I swear I'm not ignoring you, I've just been too tired to give a proper response that's not "it's over" or something so unthoughtful! If I don't respond to you within a reasonable time, it's probably because I want to give a very thoughtful response, or I haven't seen it, or some other reason!

I've got some much to do for this page, you have no idea. First thing's first, I've got two contests I'm entering by the end of the month as well as Azure in her costume this year! Look forward to it, I'm going to do something where she wears something she wouldn't realistically wear considering and it'll be adorable I promise if I get around to it. One of my entries is done and will be posted soon (hurray, pretty-pegasus-wings is finally doing something)!

The Empire. I'm so sorry to :iconhywther: for not updating it sooner. I read your awesome story and I love it so much! There's so much character being expressed and I love Taranis! I want to get to know him more! I always wondered how Strife would view him as a fellow general and I think I've got an idea. I think he'd, at first, give him a hard time being young and all, but seeing how he trains the more unruly ones would slowly give him respect toward him, but he'd still give him a hard time in a friendly way. Just a fun little thought just because. I love Strife as well as my other cartazonon and I can't wait to introduce them all to you, I've been developing them with VChart and it's been interesting. Anyways, wonderful story and since you were the only entrant that wasn't a contributor (even then, you'd still win), you win, congrats! I also want to give him a shout out since he's been super supportive of the group, the concept, and I just can't be more thankfully to him with all he's provided from his character to being the only member participant in the prompt, thank you so, so much, it means a lot to see somebody be so devoted to this tiny little group. So, I'm going to feature his stuff here. Go look! He's a talented artist and writer:

Stormlord - Autumn Blues by HywtherThe Slumber of Gaia  -1- by HywtherThorax by Hywther

Speaking of species, I'm promoting this species Secret Santa because the cartazonons may be involved if they're chosen and I know a lot of you own some fantastic species yourselves. You can submit your species for it to, I recommend it. It's pretty interesting and I feel its best you read it rather than me sitting here to explain it all.

Multi-Species Secret SantaHello! I've been thinking about it for a while, and most MLP species are probably not big enough to do their own secret santa. Luminaes-Lanterns Only has around 50-60 members and a good portion of them do not own their own Luminae, but do own another species OC. 
I've decided I want to host a Secret Santa across multiple species! 
What do you need to do to be involved?
Species such as Pond Ponies are fairly large, and have enough of a following to host their own Secret Santa. However, most species are not large enough to manage on their own. If you sign up before November 1st, you will have a chance for your species to be part of an artswap with other species, to spread both cheer and awareness!
If you are an owner: Just sign the form according to your choices, and it will be accepted first based on group members and popularity. Lesser known species will be chosen over more popular species.
If you are a co-owner: Same as the owners,

While we're on the topic of amazing species, this MYO is amazing, it needs more entries because if it doesn't, there will be only one winner, that's not fun since only one can win and the other have to pay for their entries. Please join, spread the word, they're amazing, simple, yet fun to design, they're interesting as well, go check it out:

To celebrate my newly earned 300 watchers, I am holding a Make Your Own (MYO) Masquerade contest!!! :D It has been so requested, and I'm trying to get my species more recognized, so please check it out, there are a TON of great prizes to be won!!!
- Maximum of 2 entries
- Follow the rules of Masquerade traits, listed as links at the bottom of this journal. NOTE THAT MASQUERADES CANNOT HAVE HAIR MANES, ONLY MASKS
- be creative - don't copy someone else's design
- Masquerade's mask and tail MUST match in colour and design (see examples below) for it to be a Masquerade!!!
- comment below with your entry (you may also enter it into the official Masquerade group contest folder:
- You may only make "Lower class" entries UNLESS you: favourite this journal, make a journal about this contest on your page (actu

I'm not done yet with all my update thingies, believe it or not! I've got a WIP and a sketch I want to share:

Azure in Tim Burton Style Sketch by pretty-pegasus-wings 
An attempt at drawing something in a Tim Burton style, I think it came out well!
PatchyBrewRefSheetWIP13 by pretty-pegasus-wings

This was a contest entry, but she canceled it so I need to add the horn since she's a short cartazonon and get ride of that purple and the splotches since they were only added because she liked that sort of look, the different back color from the front, also, some more pieces are meant to be drawn in. I've got plans for her.

Also, a collab I did with :iconsunbeampaintings:, I will post it here soon, but go to her page, check her out, she did a fantastic job!

Collab With Prettypegasuswings by SunbeamPaintings

Also, some ship art of one of my favorite ships! Love these two! This was drawn by the ever amazing :iconmisspinka:

Fancy by MissPinka

Oh, and I'M ALMOST AT 1000 WATCHERS?! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?! Thank you so, so much for your support, it means so much to me, and I'm planning something special for the occasion, it'll be a good one and it'll be some time before its done because, well, it'll be my biggest piece yet :D!

And finally, I've made more friends as of recent and I kind of want to talk to you more in some way. That stream was so much for for the two who attended and I do enjoy talking to you all. So, if you want to become better friends with me, chat more, share our WIP, exchange ideas for stories, RP, what have you, I'm opening up my skype to those who want to talk. Note me if you want to to talk more, I'll send you my skype info, we can even just talk through notes, or gmail, I can accommodate. If gmail, please note me when you're on and avalbile to talk because I'm not always on. For notes if you feel more comfortable, send me a note and we can exchange messages here and there. I'm may be a bit nervous about speaking with you at first, so, if you really want to get to know me better, you may need to start the conversations for a bit, I'm not good at it socializing at times, so give me some time to warm up.

Well, that's it, it's done, I'm done, I want to stop typing, my hands are getting tired. I'll try to get to all your comments as soon as I can, probably tomorrow. Have a wonderful day, afternoon, evening, depending on your time zone or when you read this!
Well, that was tons of fun! Sorry if anybody missed it if they wanted to hang out, but I'm sure there will be others. You should go check it out anyways, lots of fun to be had!
Hey everybody! Stick around til the end for an interesting thing!

Sorry I haven't been too active and keeping up with everything. Work kind of just piled up from school so, technically, the contest is closed, we just need time to sit down and figure out the winners, but you can still submit entries if you want! The cartazonon prompt needs to be updated for the winner, and I say winner because as far as I'm aware, only one person entered that wasn't a contributor.

Anyways, onto the fun thing! My friend's doing a stream, her art is super cute, so if you want to chat with me and watch her work, come and join! I'll only be one for an hour or so, so yeah. Hope to see you there :)!



pretty-pegasus-wings's Profile Picture
United States
Hello! I'm pretty-pegasus-wings, some call me just pretty for short of Azure as that's my main OC as seen above; I'm fine with whatever you decide to refer to me as. I'm an artist working to become an animator and writer/author who enjoys drawing pastel cartoon horses because why not? I, obviously, enjoy mlp, just about anything that has to do with animation from shorts, televisions, movie, history etc., video games (I'm a big hidden gem hunter), and lover of a good story. I've been drawing for three years, but only really getting into drawing in the last year.

You'll see a lot of mlp content here despite the fact I do have other interests but that's because I really enjoy drawing mlp characters and because I can't draw too much else, I can, technically, but not as well as these cartoon horses. Despite this, I focus mostly on original content prefer to make my own stuff up aside taking place in the mlp verse in some way. Azure, herself, despite being an mlp OC is completely her own and I do intend to put her into her own world with its own lore and so on. I focus mostly on OCs, very rarely drawing cannon character or anything else really, but I will some times. I draw mostly Azure as well, most of my content tends to focus on her in some way; she's a cartazonon and does have wings, she's just very fluffy. I also do write, so there is that.

I'm quiet a friendly person who does enjoy talking with others and making friends so if you'd like to talk and get to know me, maybe become friends, feel free to leave a comment or send a note. Just know if you do leave a comment, it may take me time to get to it. If you ask for a request, know that I most likely won't have time for it now. This also goes for art trades, unless you're willing to wait a long, long time, don't ask, otherwise, I always say yes to all art trades and collabs. I do enjoy RP as well if you enjoy doing that and are looking for somebody to RP with, I will accept, most likely (no NSFW please); I have tons of OCs if you're interested, just send me a note or leave a comment.

Well, if you managed to get this far, thank you, it's nice to know somebody took the time to read this. Thank you for checking out my page, if you gave a favorite, thank you, a watch, big thank you to you as well. To those commenting a thank you for something, you're very welcome and are awesome. Have a wonderful day!
