🌹 🌹 🌹 Judging-guidelines
I try to explain everything as detailed as possible beforehand, to make it as fair as possible! 🙂
These are only guidelines, don´t take them too seriously! Enjoy making your art, that will show in all of those categories and gives you a great advantage! These guidelines are there to help understand the judging system 😀
General guidelines (Don´t take them too seriously, just have FUN making your art!)
Total possible points in this category: 1-100 points
Every entry will be judged by these general points + the points for their art category

Can we just do a background? I'm not much of a horse Artist but I have a talent for backgrounds?
Oh yes! I hadn't thought of that yet, but you could make a background and put one of our WHV horses in there 😍😊💕
I've just joined this game yesterday so I don't know exactly how things work just yet, but are there certain dimensions for the art?
This contest will be great! 😍 🤩
@Luminous I am not sure what you mean with "dimensions", but if you ask about the size of the drawing/painting, it's completely up to you 😄💕 This contest is very open and all art forms are allowed, so also tiny drawings or really big ones 😊🌷
I am very excited to see all of your entries 😍
Yeah the size is what I meant by dimensions but sounds good 😀 I'll see what I can do
Definitely not getting bonus points for being fast. Greatness is not rushed
So, am I allowed to draw it on paper and send a Picture of it?
@Gacha Yes you can draw on paper and make a photo of it! That falls under the category "traditional art" 😊 🍒
@Pastels Awesome! That means you already get some bonues points! 😀
Hey do you know a site where you can make it? 😊🐎
A site to make art or upload your art?
For uploading art:
I would recommend Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Deviantart 😊💕
There are also some websites where you can upload art, but I don't know them very well. Like "Imgur" for example 😄
