Edit: Two weeks left, new prizes and the first entry!

Hello everyone!

I’ve decided to host a contest. Basically because I feel kinda sad lately and I would love to receive some art of my characters. I’m pretty sure that will cheer me up a lot ;P

The characters

Tala and Cheveyo: temporary contest ref by LabradoriteWolf
So far I’ve only got rough flat colored refs of them, but those should do for now. These two are Tala, a female wolf and Cheveyo, a male cheetah. They are the Wyrns of Azura and Brandon, my main characters from my novel. A Wyrn is something like a totemspirit, being the spirit part of someone’s soul. The bond between a person and his or her Wyrn is very special, in such a way, they can’t be seen as individual characters. This makes Tala and Cheveyo react to each other in the same way Azura and Brandon do. Azura and Brandon have been best friends for seven years.


To give you a general idea of their characters:  

Azura (15 years old): Azura is a little bit instable as she suffers the consequences of a reactive attachment disorder since her parents disappeared when she was only 5 years old. Therefore, her emotions are often all over the place and she can switch from happy to enraged within seconds. She usually gets along with everyone and trusts others easily. However, she has difficulties bonding to other persons in a deep emotional way. She only allowed a few persons in her life, including Brandon. It’s easier for her to befriend animals than people. She's brave and knows what she wants. She loves insects, especially dragonflies.

Brandon (17 years old): Brandon is madly in love with Azura. He kissed her once, but she backed away really quickly and since then he doesn’t dare to make a move anymore XD He does everything to protect her and is very cautious and distrusting when confronted with others. He’s also easily jealous when it comes to the attention of Azura. Brandon worries a lot and is a man of emotion. He has a fear of heights, loves to cuddle and is generally very headstrong. He loves painting, especially landscapes. Animals tend to hate him. 

Tala and Cheveyo basically copy the characteristics from Azura and Brandon, so you might get some inspiration from these short non-spoilery character descriptions :) 
 
 
The theme

The theme is friendship. It’s a very broad theme and I would like you all to explore it thoroughly. You have every freedom to choose a location, situation and emotion. They could be even snarling at each other for putting their own lives at stake, that’s friendship as well, being worried about each other. Make them interact, make it interesting and if you want, you can put a little story to clarify their behavior in your description.

    Hi there, I'm Michelle, also known as Labra here on DA,

    I guess this is the place to tell something about myself. I just started my Master's in Biology at the Radboud University of Nijmegen. I hope to become a great scientist one day and that I'll be able to make the world a better place with what I do. I'm specifically interested in large predators and their role in different ecosystems.
    Aside from that, I love creating art, both with traditional and digital media. I like experimenting with other forms of art as well, like animations and sculptures. At the same time, I'm very fond of working on my fantasy book series. Many artworks are influenced by the things I write.
    In general I'm a very happy person with big dreams. I'm aiming for a life in which I can travel the world and explore all of its' fascinating places. My journey will start soon (february 2015), when I'm going to Austria for nine months to be an intern at the Wolf Science Center. My job will be to research aggression in wolf pups. I'm really looking forward to that ^^

    Anyway, I hope you will enjoy your stay on my page :heart:
