My personal creation, Kobold Bladepaw. He's adorable, he's fuzzy, he's dangerous. What more could you ask for?

And I might have to make some more. Maybe another wolf?

That'd be nice, but what do you think about drawing a bear?

Any updates on when/if any more will be added? I don't want to do a bear if it won't be added.

Bears are so cool... Why didn't I think of that?

I've tried to do some New Year's Eve entries. No masterpieces (lol) this time... I did what I could.

It's party time! I don't know why, after scanning the drawing, the background colour is orange because the original one is yellow o.O

I'm not sure if this one breaks any rule. I've drawn the building, but not the fireworks (I tried, but the result wasn't quite good). I've added the fireworks using Photobucket's edit options. So is this allowed or not?

I don't know what you do that night, but where I live, we eat the twelve grapes (a grape with each of the twelve chimes). I was bored and I decided to draw... grapes!

Sometimes simpler is better. Is this one of those times?

Keep in mind that the armatars are currently on a slightly grey background, so it would look more like this:

I am not quite sure what you mean.

If they are stamps or brushes or part of a stock package, I would say that is not your own work. I would even avoid special brushes that come with Photoshop.

If the fireworks are an actual filter in Photoshop (ie there is a menu option named 'add fireworks;), that is probably more of a grey area, but I would ask for an admin to clarify on this one.

But if they are some sort of manipulation (ex: you drew some brightly coloured dots and used a filter to spread the dots in a way that looks like fireworks), then the fireworks were still created out of your own effort.
