Contest Now Closed!!!!

Sun Aug 11, 2013, 1:36 AM
Journal




Theme : Facts of my OCs Lives

Contest now closed!!!!
Please give time for the judging process which should take no longer than a week!! 
No more entries shall be accepted!!
Thank you to all those who entered and those who have donated prizes!!
Please keep updated  as a new journal entry shall be made to announce the winners!<3

Contest Description:
The contest involves drawing one of my OCs mentioned below according to the theme. This theme involves drawing an OC according to one of the facts written about them below. For example, if the fact you chose was "they loves scones" then you could draw them eating a scone. Or If your really creative you can tie to facts together, for example, "they loves scones" and "they are bad at cooking" then you could draw them baking scones but burning them! You can include as many facts as you like in the one drawing! The reason I choose this theme instead of the "photo album" theme I had originally planed to do was because I though this theme would give you more creative freedom to draw without loads of rules. I hope this contest doesn't sound really complicated! TvT

Beniko Wakahisa is a half American and half Japanese girl who grew up in a small area in Georgia, USA called Valdosta. She was abandoned at the age of three by her birth mother and then adopted by her parents, Bella and Yuuta Wakahisa. 2 Weeks before her 18th birthday, her mother died of heart failure. She was in distraught. With a thin relationship with her father she acted out and changed her entire appearance.

She is the last of her kind who has been alone in her world for over a 1000 years. She cannot be seen by the humans, even when she descends into their world. She created a similar human world in which Beniko and Daisuke could be born. She now watches and observes them to see what kind of people they will become with the traits she gave them. She has nobody by her side except from a strange man...or woman she seen wandering her world. Now this person takes the role of her assistant and they both watch over her children.
