Annnd here's the plush contest~
Edit8: If you have not already started drawing Thimble please do not draw her--her design is under construction (yet again). I'm sorry sorry about this--I'm the worst when it comes to keeping designs consistent.
Updated Thimble's (ponysona) reference image so that it is now her "up-to-date" design. If there is no way to change your entry and you chose to draw her, don't worry about it, it won't count against you if you used the old design.
Also added a better reference image for Ramen Cup (pony oc)
Edit7: Added another pony character--she's at the bottom of the list.
Edit6: Sorry about all the edits but. I added two more lovely characters for y'all to pick from for your entries~ (my puzzaricats) Scroll to the bottom for their info! I have also decided that you may enter up to 5 times if you like
(since there's so many characters lol)
Edit5: Please read all of the rules. I know it's lengthy but people keep repeating the same mistakes, especially with the raffle. At least search the journal to answer some questions, or check out the F.A.Q. I will tell you if your entry is missing something but let's try to avoid making mistakes in the first place k?
Win a Plushie Contest F.A.Q.I can't draw at all!
It's alright--I've decided to accept other art forms as entries as well. You can sculpt, make paper dolls to stage photos, etc.
Unfortunately I will not be accepting literature/music entries.
But I just can't do art...
Cheer up! There is a raffle in this contest as well, you could still win a plushie! It's discussed at the bottom of the contest journal.
Edit4: THIMBLE'S DESIGN HAS CHANGED.
Please scroll down for the change. It's minor, I promise.
Edit3: Changed the raffle rules--you do not need to comment on this journal with your share link UNLESS it is not on DeviantArt (since if you mention me/my journals in a DeviantArt journal I'll see it as a mention anyway) Let's not flood my inbox hahaha.Edit2: there is a raffle in the contest for everyone. it gives those who do not draw/paint/do other forms of physical art a chance to win something, but anyone can enter. It is discussed at the bottom of this journal.
Edit: Someone asked if other forms of art can also be entered. I've decided that yes--you may create sculptures, paperdolls, photos etc for the contest if you really want, as long as the work is soley yours. I will not accept literature or music entries though. I will be judging everything on the same basis anyway though, so making a physical item does not
automatically give you a boost! Show Me Your Artistic Talents Contest! (or try your luck! RAFFLE at BOTTOM)

Please no whining, thank you
Post your entries in the comments under this journal, please do not send them to me via notes or on my page.Here are all of the characters valid for this contest:Qing
(my personal OC, or I guess "fursona" if you want to call her that?)
She's about the size of a Shiba Inu (16 inches tall groud to top of head)
She wears a variety of accessories (she doesn't have a "set" number of accessories, do whatever you like), but they're always red, and she really really REALLY likes poppy flowers (it's her favorite flower hehe).
The little yellow sailor birdie in the 2nd image is sorta her pet--feel free to include Meepie if you like.
Her description is all in the first deviation linked here Thimble
*EDIT* This reference is correct--please follow this as your guide, not the other images you see in my favorites/gallery!
The "sewing pony"
She's very curious, and often acts like a little filly.
Has a major weakness for sweets/colorful things.
Absolutely loves all things cute.
Wishes she could fly.
She likes to wear ribbons/lace around her neck sometimes, so feel free to try things~
On a general day, you'd probs find her with her window open, and sewing away and listening to happy music while she's at it.
Dislikes rudeness/harshness, scary movies, and deadlines/stress.
If you want to draw her with my other characters--for reference, I'd imagine her to be around 2 times taller than the others--they'd come up to her belly if they stood up straight, and the puzzaricats would be even shorter!Aimee
This particular feathertail is a little special, and you'll find out why if you read the description in the artist comments for the second image
She really just wears any sort of accessory that goes with her color scheme, so feel free to decorate away!
(she's very girly/princess-y)
Also about 16 inches tall (ground to top of head)
**NOTE: Only her LEFT HIND PAW is white! The other is gray! It's a small thing. If you already finished your artwork and there's no way to change it, don't worry about it.Taelii
Taelii is not a very developed character yet...but she does have a description which includes her personality
It's all in the deviation linked above.
She also has an orange swirl on her side, as shown in the original (linked in the artist comment of the above thumbnail), but she is missing the muzzle marking from the original.
Also about 16 inches tall (ground to top of head)Cici
Cici's description is in the artist comment of the above thumbnail, so do go check that out
She's full of energy and very sweet, and she's good friends with my other feathertail Aimee~
Also abour 16 inches tall (ground to top of head)Ramenfox
(seriously--I still have no name for this girlie...she might end up stuck being called Ramenfox forever @_@;
She looooooves ramen, but she really prefers healthy ramen (like, REAL ramen) over the cheap stuff you buy for 75 cents at the grocery store.
She's super bouncy, like...really energetic! Pretty much always wants to play.
After a big bowl of ramen though...she really just wants to curl up on a comfy cushion and take a nice comfy nap.
Always wears that red cloak, though sometimes she does take the hood off. Under the hood, she's the same color as the rest of her body (that latte brown color), but the insides of her ears are the same light peach color used to color the clouds...she has big fluffy fox ears.
Her tail is not made of ramen, just loooong wisps of fur that look like ramen.
Same as the others--16 inches tall from ground to top of head (not including ears)Umbreon
(Umbri for short--my personal Umbreon haha)
She looks like any other umbreon except that her nose is yellow
She wears a ribbon scarf around her neck made with silk--one side of the scarf is red, the other side is yellow, and it's always tied in a bow.
She's slightly smaller than your standard umbreon.
She's shy at first, but once she warms up to you she's quite friendly.
Quite harmless--she doesn't like to fight too much, but she's very loyal and will protect those she loves!
She...really likes any sort of pokemon treat.Pumpkin & Flei
(the two puzzaricats)
These two are not
related! But they are best buddies
Flei is the green one, Pumpkin is the orange one.
Flei is a bit more artsy-she's a seamstress afterall. She's also in general more calm, shy, and quiet. Flei is the really sensitive one.
Pumpkin is a rambunctions silly girlie who loves playing tricks on Flei (and anyone else around), and is in general a little obnoxious (but in a cute way). She does know when to stop and be serious though!
Flei really likes anything floral/pastel/Spring-themed, and Pumpkin really likes anything..well..pumpkin.
You don't need to draw them together of course--they just end up in photos together a lot!
They are smaller than my other characters (9.5inches tall).Ramen Cup
(the ramen pony)
All of her information is in the description of the above deviation~

and link your share to me in a comment on this journal (IF IT IS NOT ON DEVIANTART). If you shared via DeviantArt and mentioned my stuff, I'll see it in my inbox and you'll be entered.
Everyone's name will be added to a grand list and I will use a random number generator at the end to choose 2 lucky winners.
If you entered the art contest as well, you may not win at both the art contest and the raffle (If you win the art contest, and I draw your name in the raffle, I will simply redraw for the raffle)
Winners will receive 1 custom tiny plush made with one of my prexisting patterns (so any of the tiny plushies that I've made before, or a bear--you can choose new colors of course)I will only cover half of the shipping cost--you must be able to pay the other half.

Tracking will be included for US addresses but is a lot more for international addresses and you'd have to pay that part on your own.
Good luck everyone, and have fun!
