I entered an event on deviantART called the 1-hour contest, where you only have an hour to draw a particular character specified by the host. And this last week, I WON! That’s exciting!

What’s also exciting is because I won the contest, I get to host the next round!

So here’s the dealio.

If you are interested in participating in this contest, here are the rules:

  1. You have 1 hour to draw a character of my choosing.
  2. Submit your entry to the 1-hr-contest group on deviantART here:  http://1-hr-contest.deviantart.com/
  3. You must submit this by AUGUST 13. That’s this upcoming Monday!
  4. Any material, etc that you want.

And without any further ado, here is the character to be drawn:

This is Thomas Doran, soldier-in-training at the military school for the Touloy Armed Forces. He considers himself a ladies man, and is in fact quite chivalrous and polite. He is well-known in the school for being an expert boxer and strategist. His two best friends are Daniel (not pictured) and Jamie (pictured as the blonde in the center image). In fact, Thomas and Daniel are keeping Jamie’s identity a secret, since she is a woman disguising herself as a man to be in the school. Thomas tends to take things too seriously unless he’s around Jamie and Daniel, in which case he likes to pull pranks on the both of them when he can get away with it.
If you win and you are a member of deviantART, then you get to host the next round of the 1 hour contest!
For sake of simplicity, only deviantART members should enter. I can’t accept outside entries. Sorry!
Good luck to all of you, and Don’t Forget to Be Awesome!
