As of donations I'm always open to them.
It would be greatly appreciated if you contributed to the groups contest~

Thank you all for helping this contest become better and better XD You're all fantastic~

Last year I was planning to host a a contest for the fall/winter, but what happened is that life issues got the better of me and it was too late to host such a contest because spring was around the corner.

In the end, I waited until the right opportunity to open it again, so don't worry, I didn't forget at all~

From counting all of the posts, the most voted was a fall/winter theme contest, so here it is~


:star:Fan-Art Fall/Winter Theme Contest::star:

:bulletblue: Theme Explanation:  Basically you will draw your favorite anime/manga in your own custom made outfit for the Fall and/or Winter season.

:bulletorange: Original characters are allowed, but you will have to include them with a Manga/Anime character, so no OC's alone , sorry... ;v;
:bulletorange: You will have to be a member of this group to be able to join.
:bulletorange: 1 entry per deviant only.
:bulletorange: The entry cannot be any older than October 2014.:bulletorange: Mature content is allowed.
:bulletorange: No bases or traced art accepted. ;v; I'd love to see originality please~
:bulletorange: Also, it cannot be a copy of another piece.
:bulletorange: It can be in any media you want~ Sorry, no literature entries this time...
:bulletorange: I will be accepting donations and judges for this contest. (I'll only be accepting 5 judges.)
You cannot be a judge and a contestant at the same time, but you are allowed to be a contestant and a donator.
:bulletorange: Have fun and enjoy yourselves~ XD Also if you guys have the time ;v; please try to spread the word about this contest, thank you~
:bulletorange: I'm not knowledgeable of all of the manga/anime out there, but if you do enter the contest, please put the name of the anime/manga you drew in your comments so I know it's not only/all OC(s), thank you.
:bulletorange: Also, when you submit the entry, please make sure that you mention that your entry is drawn for Drawing-Anime-Freak's contest with maybe a link to it. Thank you again~ ;v;

NOTICE!!! For those that said they will donate for this contest in the past, I'd like to know if you guys are still willing to donate for this contest because I know it's been a long time and I do apologize for that... ^^; If not, I'll immediately remove you from the list

:bulletblue: If you would like to be a judge, please send me a note and explain why because in the past, (Not in this group particularly), I've had people become a judge only to vote for their friends, and I do not accept that what-so-ever.

Rules for prize offers from some Deviants:
:bulletred: Hijirina
~ She won't do furries. (Kemonomimi is okay though).
~ She'll do drawings of characters with a more complex character design (like e.g. mechas/ cyborgs) but it will take more time for her to finish as shes not used to draw things like that.
~ Please don't rush her when it comes to the artwork prizes. She'll try her best to provide the offered drawings as fast as she can, but please consider that it might take a while to finish as there could come some unforeseeable real life issues to her.
~ Every drawing comes only with a simple background.
~ It doesn't matter if the illustrated characters are OCs or Manga/ Anime characters. The winners can choose by themselves.
:bulletred: Anislayer
~ She won't do furries and complex weapons. Everything else is ok, including S&M theme, nudity, kemonomimi.


:bulletblue: For those that want to donate, feel free to note the group and I'll place you on the list~ ;v; It would be greatly appreciated if we had some contributors...

:star:Contest ends on the 4th of January!!! Judging will take place the week prior! Results will be announced on 11th or 12th of January!:star:

Check It Out :iconfatlaplz:


:bulletblue: Read the rules!
:bulletblue: You may only submit 2 deviations per week. (We don't want to clutter your inbox TOO much, would we?).
:bulletblue: If you couldn't tell, this group is about ANIME/MANGA. If you don't like, don't join.
:bulletblue: Make sure that your entries are relevant to the group. We don't want to see a photo of Lindsey Lohan all passed out in her car,etc. There's probably a group for that kind of thing elsewhere.
:bulletblue: Please respect the rules and the admins. We make the rules, not you, so follow them. If you don't like that, make your own group.
:bulletblue: In addition to the admins, be respectful to other members. A peaceful group is a happy group.
:bulletblue: Have fun! :]

Hello! I, uh, just wanted to say thank you for wanting my artwork in your gallery, even though it has nothing to do whatsoever with anime/manga. ^^' 
It's a picture of a squirrel... 
I'll just decline it so that you don't have any non-anime related things in your gallery. 
Thanks anyway! :)
