Welcome to my contest! I've accumulated a s*** ton of points lately, and I'm very excited about using them to hold this contest. 
So what exactly must you do to enter the contest? Well, all you have to do is draw my characters!
Soulflower: Book 1 Cover by Tokyo-DAZE 
This is the cover for my original manga, Soulflower. Soulflower takes place in a world where everybody's soul is represented by a flower, and particularly follows the story of a guitar boy named Leonn Daemono and his friends who attends a melee fighting class in a 1960s Chicago suburb. I want to promote the manga and these characters by holding this contest, so I hope you will join and see that you like a character or two! I still need to do lots of planning and finish other things before I immerse myself in keeping devoted to this manga, but please consider watching me for more updates! <3

QUALIFICATIONS

Rules
: Please fav this journal! <3
: I would really appreciate it if you watched me! It's not necessary, but I would prefer it :3
: If you want to enter, comment below and say so! It helps me keep track of participants. Remember that you can drop out at any time if you want; just let me know ^^
: You can draw NSFW or gore of the character(s) if you prefer! No extreme fetish art please, but some kinks (bondage and similar things) are okay~ >:3 I will have pairings listed in the character bios section that you can choose from, and I like candy gore a lot~ ALL CHARACTERS ARE DEPICTED AS ADULTS IN THEIR REFS, with the exclusion of Julusen and Jacques, who are 14.
: Remember to tag me when you post your entry, or link your entry to me!
: You can enter as many pieces as you want!
: If you steal or trace art that does not belong to you without the original artist's written permission, you will be disqualified and not allowed to re-enter! Please be nice!

Tips for entries!
I'm not a picky darling, but I do have preferences! Please look here for things that can get you higher up on the totem pole~ Remember none of these are necessary, but it will help!
: Implementing complex angles, poses, lighting, and backgrounds will make your entry look way more appealing! I am more likely to choose art with complex techniques like these applied.
: I like detailed pixel art, fake dating sim/RPG screenshots, and fake anime/cartoon screenshots! It's lots of fun to draw, and very creative, so I hope you agree~
: I like ship art, gore/candy gore, shitposts/meme art and aesthetic implements! Though keep in mind that quality is the most important~
: Each character has items (weapons, instruments, etc.) that are visible on their reference sheets. It would be great if you could implement these! It's cute and creative~
: I highly suggest looking at the character(s)'s faceclaim and studying it briefly! I take facial differentiation very seriously, even in cartoon art, so make sure the way you draw the character's face somewhat resembles the faceclaim!
: Using bases, maker games, or tracing premade art are not outlawed here, but they seriously limit differentiation and originality and will lower your chances of winning a lot. So please try to make original art! However, using YCHs is okay ^^

Donations
Donators are greatly appreciated! I don't have anything to give in return, but I hope you'll still be okay with me ><
Current donators: kae-on Akukasterberous Cr1t1calHershey KatelynCapybara kerry483 animaloftheelements LacrimareObscura
: Anyone can donate! You can donate art, points, cash, features, badges, or core membership!
: If you want to donate, please comment below or send me a note! Make sure to include examples of what you want to donate and tell me which place(s) you will donate to.
: Donators who give art prizes must be able to draw a variety of species in case the winner asks for it~
: Donators can join the contest as well!
: You can revoke your donation at any time before the end of the contest!



CHARACTER BIOS

You can choose one or more of these characters to draw! I will have compatible characters listed underneath in case you want to do ship art, which I will appreciate a lot~ remember, I am okay with NSFW!
SOULFLOWER CHARACTER BIOS*Please remember to consider each character's faceclaim, especially if you have a semi-realistic or realistic style!
*If a character's faceclaim is subject to change or the character has no faceclaim, it's okay to try something else but do try to keep the basic idea~
*Each drawn ref includes more info about the characters in the description, so please click on them to view it!
*The ages on their ref sheets are purely placeholder ages used to determine each character's age difference. Everyone is depicted in their refs as a full-grown adult, so don't worry about underage or whatever.
*NSFW is okay for ship art if you so desire :3 I've actually been looking for a bit of mature ship art of the characters, so if you'd like to, don't hold back~ fufu~
 Leonn Daemono (pronounced "lee-yon die-moh-noh")

The protagonist of Soulflower, this young boy loves songwriting, singing, and vandalism. He's a mean, tough dude! R

SOULFLOWER SECONDARY CHARACTER BIOSBecause the main character bio was getting too too big ;3;
*Please remember to consider each character's faceclaim, especially if you have a semi-realistic or realistic style!
*If a character's faceclaim is subject to change, it's okay to try something else but do try to keep the basic idea~
*Each drawn ref includes more info about the characters in the description, so please click on them to view it!
*The ages on their ref sheets are purely placeholder ages used to determine each character's age difference. Everyone is depicted in their refs as a fully-grown adult, so don't worry about underage or whatever.
