EquinePalette's Back to School Plushie Giveaway!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 5, 2014, 1:30 PM

UPDATE: The 1,000 watcher prizes have been released! The winner will now get to choose between 4 prizes!

Also, a bit of a date change--I'm a genius. I intended the contest to end on September 1st, but realized I derped up and made the date OCTOBER. So, instead of being a jerk and making it still end in 24 hours, or have another month for the giveaway, I'm going to compromise and make the giveaway end on the 14th! So 2 more weeks!

Good luck!


I promised a summer giveaway, so here it is!

Prancing Pinkie Pie Plush by equinepalette

The winner may choose ONE (1) of the following options:

:bulletpink: The 19" Pinkie Pie Above :bulletpink:
:bulletblue: A custom 12" Plushie of ANYPONY Including OCs*! :bulletblue:
:bulletyellow: 1 (or 2) Beanies of ANYPONY Including OCs**! :bulletyellow:
:bulletpurple: 10 Sarubobos of ANYPONY Including OCs! :bulletpurple:
*Anypony within reason. I can do Rainbow Dash because I have her exact colors and hair pattern, but someone super complex like Zecora or a crystal rainbow-zebra-alicorn hybrid OC with 10 colors is out of the question.
**I can do 2 simple beanies or 1 complex beanie. I will not do both a Celestia and Luna Beanie, for example.


1. You must be a watcher!

I don't normally do watcher requirements, but if you're wanting the more awesome prizes, you want more people to watch me!

I only ask that if you watch me only for the giveaway, unwatch me after it ends unless you genuinely like my art. I really want to think that every one of my watchers wants to watch me because they like my art, not because I bought their watch.

However, you can't just watch me and then unwatch me the minute I confirm your entry. I'll double check to make sure you're still watching before I declare you the winner!

2. You must make a journal/poll promoting the giveaway!

And it has to be a new journal/poll! I don't mind being put on a journal with a list of other giveaways, but the point here is promotion! I want your watchers and friends to see it! If you put it on an old journal (unless I can tell it's an "updated" journal which gets sent to your watchers inboxes), it will not count!

Post a link to the journal in a comment below! If you'd like confirmation, go ahead and post a comment and I'll let you know when I've added you to the list.

3. You must do the above by September 14th, 2014 at 12:01 EST!

This is when the giveaway will end! All entries after this time will NOT be considered for drawing!

I will draw the name by random number generator within 24 hours of this date and announce the winner within 48 hours!

Extra Entries

You can get up to 6 extra entries for a total of 7 entries!

First, liking my facebook page will get you 1 extra entry! Let me know at least your initials in a comment below so I can confirm your like!

Otherwise, per the usual you can do art to get extra entries! Up to 5 extra entries may be done for pictures of my OCs:

Questions Regarding Art:

Q: What counts as an entry, exactly?

A: Each pony drawn will count as 1 entry. So, if you draw two ponies in one picture, that's two entries. You cannot get more than 5 entries, though, so a group picture with all  of my OCs does not count as tons of entries. Just 5.

Q: Do I have to do digital art for it to count?

A: No! You can do traditional art, sculptures, a plush, macaroni art, or whatever you feel like! If you'd like, if it's not digital art, I'd be happy to pay to have it shipped to me, even if you don't win the giveaway! (Depending how many entries I get of this type, of course. I can't pay buckets of cash for shipping.)

Q: Can I use a base to draw them?

A: NO. I don't care if you can't draw worth a lick. I want you to try to draw ponies and improve your skills! An entry is an entry no matter how poor you think your art is.

Q. What KIND of art can I draw of them?

A: I'm open to almost anything of anypony, but here are a few general "rules" to follow:
1. I love seeing couples art of my and my love's ponysonas!
2. Shelly is almost never seen without Alice, and Alice is almost never seen without a bow.
3. Glitterwing is the only pony I'll allow NSFW of.
4. Cherry Cordial is designed as a filly, but I'd love to see "grown-up" art and possible cutie marks for her!
5. Rip Tide and Shelly are actually brother and sister--part of a family unit of OCs, actually, so feel free to draw family scenes!

Q: You have more than 5 OCs; can I get more entries by drawing each one of them?

A: No. 5 is all. You can draw group portraits, 5 pictures of your favorite pony, or just choose 5, but 5 extra entries is enough! I want everyone to get a fair chance!

Q: Can I do a collaboration with someone for an entry?

A: Yes! As long as both of you put in at least 50% of the work, I'll give you both 1 extra entry each per picture. 

Q: Do multiple "versions" count for multiple entries?

A: No. Two pictures with small edits do not count as separate entries. Like, a picture "With Background" and one "Without Background" do not count as two entries. Just one. For further clarification:
Equine Palette (Ponysona) by equinepaletteSilver Player by equinepalette
These count as 1 entry each.
Blush by equinepalette
This does NOT count as a 3rd entry.


I think that covers everything, but feel free to ask any questions you have!

Good luck everybody!
