This contest is now in voting. please vote in <poll:16878>

DEALINE! the deadline for this art contest is March 20th. i have no particular reason for chosing that IF you don't win this one, you will have other chances. i've decided that i will make this contest into series. so, this being my first, it's just no theme and whatever, but have fun, k?

RULES! if you don't follow them i'll hunt you down and make sure you pay! hehe...jk.
1. it absolutely, positively HAS to be your own art. if i find out you stole it from anybody, not only will you be disqualified, i shall report you to the guards coz im a big snitch!
2. (damn i hate this html coding crap) it MUST be watercolor. hence, the title. no computer rendering, no photo changing and that crap. it has to be by your hand and with your paint brusha nd your paint!...specifically watercolor. if it is not, i will warn you...if you still dont listen...i'll put it down myself.
3. hmmm....o yeah, you can submit as much as 5....i repeat, FIVE pieces. i'm only one person, you know! no more than five!!!
4. you try anything as much as porn and i'll kil you. i'll accept artistic nudity but guys, please, hold back, will ya?

other than that, have fun, and let your imagination fly! paint anything, so long as it's watercolor!!
