:iconizzyhal::iconsaysplz:Hey all!

I wanted to give a birthday gift to my girlfriend *x-Hikarii:iconx-hikarii: and advertise her page at the same time, so I decided to promote a contest without her knowledge!
EDIT - She's seen it on my page, it was a good 3 days before she had any idea.

The objective is to redraw her* OC named Katsumi in your own style.
*OC drawn by =trixychuu as a custom adoptable -

Please favorite this:… Journal as proof you're interested in entering, and you can give me your submission via wallpost, notes or comments here!
When you upload your submission to your page, make sure you reference *x-Hikarii 's page.

x-Hikarii's OC link -…
Examples of previous commissions of Katsumi -…… and trinity-in-rainbows.deviantart…

This contest includes submissions of Digital, Pixel, Traditional, Cosplay, full body, half body or any other form you wish to do! The only requirement is that it's featuring Katsumi, so feel free to get creative with cosplay, paint, sai, photoshop or anything else!

What we're looking for will be

- Uniqueness, we want to see YOUR style of the same character.
- Accuracy of drawing, after all we still want to recognize it as her OC.
- Attention to detail, we want you to have to work for it, no roughs/quick sketches please!
- Stance/poses, please feel free to be creative about how you want Katsumi to stand.
- Artistic Talent, obviously it goes without saying we want to see skill and talent from everyone, in your own styles show us why you're a good artist!

Optionally you can go ahead and add items, backgrounds, animations or whatever you like to make the picture really stand out!!
