I finally hit 3000 watchers! Thank you all so much. So then, I guess it's time to give back a little. Therefore, I will be holding the contest that I alluded to so long ago, in order to give away some ponies! Without further ado, here are the rules:

The deadline for submissions is 9pm PST Saturday September 14th, 2013. Late submissions will NOT be accepted. Please submit by COMMENTING on this journal with a link to your submission. Submissions so far are in this favorites collection for your browsing and perusing pleasure: fireflytwinkletoes.deviantart.…

Your entry must fit the following criteria:

The Prizes!
  • I will provide the prizes, but the winners must provide shipping! Please don't whine about this – I have my reasons, and you'll still be getting an awesome pony plush for the price of a few bucks' shipping. Even if you are 8 years old and don't get an allowance, you could make that much by picking up bottles on the side of the road, or watering your elderly neighbours' plants.
  • The number of prizes will vary depending on how many entries I get. However, as a starting point:
    • First Place: Winner's choice of a filly with a couple of accessories, or a sitting pony. Cutie marks included. (Shipping $15 in the US, $20 overseas)
    • Second Place Alpha: Minipony! (Cutie marks included if they are not too complicated and can plausibly be appliqued really tiny). Plus an accessory! (Shipping $5 in the US, $7 overseas)
    • Second Place Beta: Minipony! (Cutie marks if they are not too complicated and can plausibly be appliqued really tiny). Plus an accessory! (Shipping $5 in the US, $7 overseas)
    • Third Place: Winner's choice of a simple MLP related cutie mark themed accessory such as a bandanna, coin purse, good luck charm, or iPhone case. (Shipping $5 in the US, $7 overseas)
    • Fourth Place: A handwritten poem extolling your awesomeness, and a doodle of your choice.

General rules for prizes:
- You get to choose the character your prize is based around. This may be a canon character or OC.
- If you choose an original character that someone else has created, you must get their permission to use that character.
- The character must be relatively simple. For example:
  • I will NOT do complicated minis like Rainbow Dash or princesses. A good rule of thumb is that the character should have one body color and no more than three hair colors (preferably less).
  • If you are the first place winner and ask for Vinyl Scratch or Rainbow Dash (or a similarly complicated pony), then you are basically trading in your accessories for a more complicated filly.
  • I will consider "pay to upgrade" propositions on a case-by-case basis. You may NOT upgrade to a full-size pony, but you may be allowed to purchase extra accessories or get a more complicated character.
  • Do NOT ask me about these things until you win a prize! I don't want to answer a whole bunch of individual "What If" questions.
Let me know if you have further questions or need clarification about anything, and I'll add to this journal!

This was a really long time ago - I honestly don't remember, but there's a record of it somewhere in my journals if you want to look.

Coming in at the last moment!!!

Alright since I could only submit one entry and I couldn't decide on a custom or digital/which of your characters to draw I decided to do both in a kind of mashup. (I will be sending you both the print and and the custom after the contest is over) I hope you like! (and yes the picture does not do either justice, I recommend looking at them individually to get the full effect)

It's one of those art forms that gets proportionally better the more time you put into it, and I didn't exactly procrastinate Wink/Razz 
Well worth the challenge to hear you liked it Nod
