Hey there guys! I've been promising to reboot the monthly art contests for a while now and since we're still within the first week of Jan, let's get one underway! I will choose a theme for each month depending on relevancy of the time or seasonal events of that month.

So what's this month's theme?

CHINESE NEW YEAR - YEAR OF THE ROOSTER

Ideas to help you:
Colourful Chinese themed settings, ponies in Traditional Chinese clothing, chinese dragons, ponies dressed as chickens and roosters, ponies turned into chickens, ponies celebrating with fireworks and lanterns.

CLOSING DATE TO ENTER - WEDNESDAY 25TH JAN!​

Voting will go on for a week once the entries are closed.

Rules;

- Only forum members and DA Group Members will be able to submit art.
- Please submit any entries to the 'Contest Submissions' folder in our deviantART Group gallery. Artwork submitted anywhere else, including this thread, will not count, so this is very important!
- All entries must be themed to MLP, so please no pokemon, anime, furry or other art without anything from the MLP universe. You can draw MLP characters as other creatures, but please make sure its obvious its MLP based.
- One entry a month per person.

Prizes

This time there will be a prize for the winner. The winning entry gets to be in the featured gallery on the DA group page and will also get a headshot drawing of OC or character of their choice - This is to be drawn by me.

Start drawiiiiiiiiiiing........ NOW!

Good luck everypony!

Have a Happy Hearth's Warming everypony!


See you in 2017, hope to have some new features and updates soooon!

Hey guys, Stormy here.

Just to note a few new things for the New Year.

We now have a "Commissions and Offers" Folder.
This is to advertise our resident artists that are open for Commissions, be it general price sheets, seasonal/themed offers etc etc.  
Continue to post into STABLES and I'll move them over. Please do not spam it too often though.

2017 will also bring the return of the monthly art contest. I'm afraid that the community here is too small for FimFic, music and video contests, best to save those for UKofE forums, FimFic, Youtube and other hosting sites you normally use.

Havent decided on a theme yet, once we do and have the voting system set up as well, we will post the art contest details here and on UKofE forums. So keep an eye out.

It's possible we may open for inquiries about a new mod for this group (since I think I'm the only active one right now), but I want to see how we go with the contests reboot. Also looking at overhauling the info and front page of the group too. Just a few little changes here and there.

Any other suggestions, please let me know.

I know that this group's mods are not very active, but I'm going to repeat what I said last year;

Could you please keep all artwork submissions to this group with general rating. I have seen a few mature/NSFW pieces get through whilst I was away and this is a group for all ages, so they have been deleted. Also please filter your artwork.
If this keeps happening then we will have to add an approval mode for group submissions.

Please keep it clean everypony. We try and follow the same rules on here as we do on the Forum.

I'll be seeing about restarting the art contests in the new year so we can get this group moving a bit more.

I have also noticed a few journals sneaking in about commissions. Instead of cluttering this group with them, what I may do is have a "open for commissions" folder where I can put your price sheets and seasonal offers posts.

I realised that the blogs/journals have been a little inactive, but I just want to point out a little thing when submitting art.
