Welcome to the Black Horse Contest!

This is an art contest to see who can draw the best black equine. There will be first, second and third place winners based on poll results (when I figure out how to put the thing onto a wiki page!). The prizes will be badges that I've made. Participants may either use the participant badge I've made or display the wiki banner in their house to advertise this contest (I would greatly appreciate the advertising!).


The rules:

1. No stealing art! If I find out you've stolen an image and put it here not only will the image be removed, but you will also be banned from the contest and will be reported for theft. They don't take kindly to stealing here.

2. The theme is black horses. White markings on the horses are acceptable, but the horse should be mostly black.

3. All mediums are accepted: digital, pencil, ink, oil, watercolour, PrismaColor, whatever you like!

4. No photos, no photo manipulations.

5. Fantasy horses will be accepted with limitation. Unicorns, winged horses, or winged unicorns are fine, but nothing else.

6. Please make sure your images are clear in quality and not too fuzzy.

7. Each participant may submit two (2) entries.

8. Please seperate your entries with the <hr> tag and follow this format:

Name: [Dark Side of the Moon]
Title of work (if applicable): Name Of Drawing

9. No nudity of any kind.

10. Have fun!

Contest deadline is March 30th 2007! Good luck!
