Hey, guys! Some of you might be aware of this from a previous poll I did. Since there was a decent number of interest in it, I thought of going ahead and hosting my first ever contest ^u^ Please bear with me as I go through some base rules on how to enter.


The theme for this drawing contest will be "Crystals". How you'll interpret it will be up to you, you can go ahead and make it literally about crystals or have a more abstract sense of the word, like a lake that is clear as a crystal or something. I will however, not accept if the word "Crystal" is just slapped on a totally unrelated piece of art. That's just lazy now.You MUST include at least one of my own OCs listed in the following link. It is not necessary to

Sapphire Breeze's talent is crystal sculpting, especially sculptures of birds.
So I imagined in my mind how her cutie mark might have came to be and came up with this!

One day, Sapphire Breeze and her loyal avian pal Chirpy Chi stumbled upon twinkles of light coming from a nearby cave near their home. Together, they explored the cave and found walls lined with crystals and gems. Feeling excited, they got tools from the house and started to mine and displayed what they have mined in their rooms.

Soon, Sapphy wondered if she could give the crystals she mined a little more "kick" and spent a while experimenting. Eventually, she got all the tools she needed and tried sculpting them. She looked at Chirpy and thought maybe she could try sculpting her friend. What came out was something Sapphire was utterly amazed. She might actually be good at this.

Soon, her flank glowed and there it was.

This was made in Adobe Illustrator and After Effects. Transformed into gif using Photoshop.
