Paint a Pony Contest - Point Prizes

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 9:43 PM

Hey all!!

Ok the contest is finally in motion. The theme is painting a pony... my pony, to be more specific.

At the end of July I will be going to the Taylor Horsefest (read more here) I am going to do some body painting on Tiko for the parade. There will be two winners... one for each side of my pony. :)


  • you may submit two entries (one right side, and one left side)
  • absolutely NO violence, gore, or sexual themes
  • you must give me full permission to use your designs on my pony
  • keep it relatively simple (I must be able to recreate your designs in a few hours)
  • Do not draw across the tack
  • You can use any medium as long as it can be displayed on the template
  • Note me with your submissions, they must be submitted using the templates below

Deadline is July 1st, 2014

Note: If there are not enough entries I reserve the right to cancel the contest

These templates show her exact markings, and exactly where her tack sits

  • Use a color scheme, and keep it simple: Again, I need to recreate these designs, and I'm not sure how patient my pony will be if I have tons of different colors.
  • I would prefer no horses in the design since I am already painting ON a horse, but if you think you can impress me... go for it :D
  • DO color the mane and tail, this can be a fun part that I can do ahead of time
  • Be creative with her markings and keep in mind what colors will show up better on the lighter or darker patches (Note: her coat will get a little lighter brown by the end of the summer)
  • check out my speed paintings, this gives you an idea of what I can do in a short amount of time

Before you comment on my page

Occasionally I will donate points/money to someone...

I will NOT donate points just because someone wants a subscription, because you just want points, or anything related... DO NOT ASK. You will be ignored, and your comment will probably be hidden.

Also, please no self promotion. Your comments will also be hidden.

This is something I believe in donating to
