Hey, Ok I am aware that I can submit multiple entries but I do have a question about that. I'm wondering if there's any kind limit to how many I can submit. You see, I've been in kind of a monster drawing mood as of late and I may end up submiting a whole crap load by the deadline. So if there is some kind of limit could you please let me know? Thank you. :)

:icon768dragon:
768dragon Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Well theres no official limit, although if you're going to be doing a lot I would suggest to keep it to about 5 or 6 of your best ones :) I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Count me in! :)

I do have two questions -

Is it supposed to be just an original creature/species we come up with, or does it have to have a backstory, name, etc. (or can it be either)?

And do we still own the creature when we submit it? As in, could we still use it in a story or something?

Thanks so much! This sounds like fun!

awesome :D good luck!

It is supposed to be an original creature, preferably with a name, but you can put as much information about it as you want :)

yes you do still own the creature, although it will be used and redrawn by other artists it will be used for the group and credit will always be given to the original designer :)
