• Ponies Playing with Pony Toys: Drawing Contest!

    We haven't run a big event here on EQD in a while!  It's time to get one going before Bronycon, and we have some awesome rewards for the top five.  Our friends over at Toywiz have offered to donate a box of blindbags and a box of playing cards to split amongst the winners.   It's pretty awesome when actual toy companies start noticing this crazy brony thing isn't it?  Usually they're the ones that enforce that pink aisle rule!

    So what exactly do you need to do this time around?   I figured, if we are going to be giving out toys and cards, we might as well have ponies playing with said toys and cards!

    What do I need to do?

    Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to take a character from the show and draw them using some form of Friendship is Magic merch.  How you choose to interpret that is up to you!   Maybe Rainbow Dash got hold of a Daring Do plushie? Or Fluttershy decked herself out in a full suit of My Little Pony gear, sweater and socks included?  You decide! Creativity will be one of our top priorities.

    How to Enter/Specific Rules:
    • All submissions should be sent to [email protected] with CONTEST as the email subject. Include the image + a source link or name you want to go by If it does not follow this format it will probably get lost or sent to the moon! 
    • No Gore
    • No Clop
    What do I win?

    Toywiz has generously donated a whole bunch of blindbags and card packs.  Four lucky first place winners will receive 6 blind bags and 6 booster packs each.  And since it's always near impossible to choose just four, we are giving a 5th place runner-up slot the remaining 6 boosters.

    The top 30 will also be compiled into a drawfriend style post.  

    What is the deadline?

    With Bronycon right around the corner, we wanted to end this one on Thursday at 1:00 AM PST. Due to time constraints, we will probably not be able to extend it further than this, so get those drawings in before it's over!

    And for those lacking in the art area, Toywiz still has pre-orders available on all of the up and coming pony stuff.  Check them out!
