NEW PRIZES!!! - please see prizes post for more information on the newly added prizes.
Contest Deadline February 1st, 2013 (Date may change if there are not enough contestants) Everyone wins something!!!! Every participant that did not win a prize will be given 10k for simply entering the contest!!!
Welcome to our little contest! Well… I say little. It’s more of a major art contest. This is a contest hosted by myself and Xelgaav (or as he was formally known, Zel or Zelgaav). The reason we are holding this contest is because we have outgrown gaia and feel the need that it is time to move on. We are in college and ready to make a living and no longer have time for Gaia. We have spent many happy and fun years here, but we have our real world lives to live. So we are holding this contest to get some art and get rid of our gold and items! Please make sure that you read through this thread carefully before entering. Thank you very much, and “may the odds be ever in your favor.”

Ponified! - draw characters in the pony section ONLY. Do not turn avis or other characters into ponies. You may humanize the ponies if you want!
IMPORTANT: All 3 male characters in the MALE section of this post belong to Xelgaav. All other characters; couples, females, and ponies, belong to me (Keyoshi Storm).
Name: Keyoshi and Tristan Height: 5’5” & 6’4” Age: 20 & 23 Personality: Keyoshi is very sweet and shy. She is somewhat of a “princess character.”
Tristan is very charming but a tad cocky at times. He enjoys picking on Keyoshi when she gets in her sweet/clingy moods. But most of all, he’s romantic, and his biggest dream is Keyoshi herself. Bio: Keyoshi was a simple girl who was known as the Queens daughter. She hated being a princess and did all she could to be normal. And because of that she was kidnapped.
Tristan was a man that lived in the lower part of town, but his dream was to become to be knighted by his Queen. His dream soon came true when he saved Keyoshi and in return was knighted by her mother. Art: XOXO
Name: LeAnne & Leon Height: 5’6” & 6’2” Age: 21 & 25 Personality: Leon is your typical “bad boy.” He’s not afraid to hold his girl against the wall and have his fun with her.
LeAnne is the odd goth girl. She’s quite, but has a bit of an attitude. Bio: Leon was a transfer student who came to LeAnne’s school. He was the instant popularity guy. He soon met LeAnne who was strange, similar to him, almost as if she was the female version of him. Besides this, he was drawn to her because she was the only girl in school that was not drooling over him. Art: XO
Name: Damon & Scarlet Height: 5’4” & 6’1” Age: 19 & 22 Personality: Damon is dark, mysterious and charming. Scarlet is strong, kind, competitive and regal. Bio: Damon doesn't have much to him. He was always the quite guy in school that everyone was afraid off. Scarlet was, on the other hand, home schooled all her life until high school, where she finally started into a public school. With her arrival, she was the first person that Damon tried to befriend but Scarlet was not interested. They liked each other, and without saying it or even asking the question, they started to date. He of course was the dominate one, loving to take control and make her angry. He loves her though. There's not doubt about that. Art: X
Name: James Height:5'8 Age:21 Personality: James is generally a kind person who goes more then out of his way to help those he cares for. That being said, he’s a bit of a smart a** at times, and isn’t afraid to use his wit. Still, he does know when to hold that back, and will always put his friends before himself, even if it means putting his life in danger. Bio:
James was born into a royal English family during a time of war. During the war, his parents were assassinated by a hired hand of the rivaling family. James was taken in by his godfather, who was his fathers best friend. Under his godfather’s care, James was taught how to fight using the sword. During this training, there was an accident where his godfather’s sword made contact with James’s left eye, which after treated, left a scar. James never blamed his godfather for this, and took it as a hard earned lesson. James had mastered his godfather’s teachings by the age of 16, and after thanking his godfather, and saying goodbye, he went out to Japan, where he met with an absolutely beautiful sorceress named Nihime, who would teach him weapon summoning. How ever, James and Nihime’s relationship quickly became more then just that of master and student. The two fell madly in love with each other, and began a secret relationship outside that of Nihime’s teachings. Unfortunately, the royal family that had sent an assassin after James parents caught wind of his training, and sent the same assassin after James. The assassin saw James and Nihime together, and attempted to kill James, but Nihime intervened, and thus was mortally wounded. James, seeing his first love nearly killed right before his eyes, went into a rage and attacked the assassin. It didn’t take James long to overwhelm the assassin with the multitude of weapons he was able to summon, and just before James would have killed the assassin, Nihime cried out to him, begging him to stop. James snapped from his rage, then ran to Nihime, who explained how she did not wish for him to become a murderer, even if it meant not avenging her. James reluctantly did as she wished, and carried Nihime back to her home. Nihime died in his arms as he carried her home, where laid her to rest forever. James, now 21, set out to bring the rivaling family to justice, and make them pay for what they had done to his family, and his love.
Name: Aoi Magician Height: 5'6 Age: Unknown Personality: Mysterious, quiet, kind, protective Bio: Not much is known about the Aoi Magician. One day when a village was being attacked by evil spirits, he showed up and stopped them. He helped the village recover and repair the damages, but as soon the recovery efforts were done, he vanished. He’s shows up again from time to time in order protect the village. Art: N/A
Name: The Gunblade Bandit Height: 5'9 Age: 24 Personality: Mysterious, quiet, protective, generous Bio: In a land run by a greedy and corrupted ruler, a sort of Robben Hood like hero has appeared. The Gunblade Bandit runs around with a gunblade, stealing money from the royal’s, and giving it to the lower class. It is believed he himself came from a royal family, and was so disgusted by the goings on that he broke away. He has not once brought any physical harm to any of his “victims”. Art: N/A
Name: Satine Height: 5'1" Age: Unknown Personality: Curious and kind. She loves everything and wants to find who she really is and what she really means in the world she lives in. Bio: She is the daughter of the zodiac monkey and the moon Goddess. Because of the issues between the goods and the zodiac creatures, she lives on Earth, unable to live with either side of the family because she is have zodiac and have goddess. Art: X
All of Scarlet Sky's information is on the link in her name. As for Sir Night:
He is a very gentle pony. All his life he dreamed of being knighted by Queen Celestia. When he finally was, he was united with Scarlet Sky. She finally became Princess Luna's apprentice, learning about the moon, but mostly about the bloody moon that she so love.
Comments: They ARE a couple and you may draw them as a couple or you may draw them as individual characters.
Silent Prince: He's the right hand man to the villain in my fanfic. He's secretly in love with Scarlet Sky, which makes him have trouble with fulfilling his duties as the "bad guy."
Please note: These are the only characters that should be drawn as ponies. We do not want avis drawn as ponies!!!
