- Anyone on the First page, and on the second one only the top row. For Specified Couples and Friendship Trios/Quadruples?/More?!, first I'd like for you to check out the full on picture for the names of the characters, and then come back to this list to see who you really want to draw.
- Ever + Lexi + Hikari (Best Friend Trio)

Bullet; Green Note me for more questions!
Bullet; Green Give Prizes and Join the Contest!
Bullet; Green You may make more than one entry but only one could win!
Bullet; Green Artwork must be made by you! Only Exceptions is if you do collabs, but idk how you will split it up.
Bullet; Green Yes! You can do R-18, Gorey, Creepy Stuff.
Bullet; Green Yes, you can enter as MANY times as you can! But only one of your arts will win.
Bullet; Green You can change the gender if you want! But make it original, and cool looking.
Bullet; Green You don't necessarily have to draw them in their clothes as is, it can be different, as long as it is has the same color scheme.
Bullet; Green You can draw Icons, if you want too!

Animated Rainbow Star Divider by GasaraYOU MAY NOTAnimated Rainbow Star Divider by Gasara
Bullet; Red DO NOT beg for me to give you anything! I will block you.
Bullet; Red I do not accept Anthro (meaning anything animal), unfortunately! Sorry~
Bullet; Red DO NOT make anything R-18 with "Yumi" on my list.
Bullet; Red Since I said artwork must be made by you, this means no bases.
Bullet; Red Unfortunately, I won't accept literature.
Bullet; Red Idk if I should accept crafts because then I'd want to keep them (unless you're okay with sending them to me lol).
Bullet; Red I won't accept any kind of sketch, and at least let it be a half-body drawing or a full color chibi. Please put some effort into this.

DEADLINE - I will accept NO LATER than July 18, 2014 @ 00:00 (12AM) (CST) . That is my 17th Birthday.
If I don't officially close the contest after the time, and your entry is submitted, I'll accept it.
IF I do close officially, but say DA was being a butt, and you turn it in like in 6hrs (that's the maximum amount of time I will give) after the time, I'll accept it. I realize how much DA does not like people and submissions, so that's why I'm giving this chance.
Judging will then be announced either the same night, or the next morning.
Judging will be done by both me and my best friend,
IF there are any delays, or something happens, either one of us will create a journal which will postpone the contest. This is why I need people to watch me and BlackOut2020 .

Now For the Prizes! XD I'm pretty sure that's what you really want.

I'm now going to have a 100 raffle, for my 100 watcher celebration.
RAFFLE FOR 100 WATCHER CELEBRATION YEAAA (OPEN)I know it says May something for the journal, but I'm updating today.
I'm so happy I have 100 watchers, I never thought I could make it this far. :icongtthplz:
Anyways, there's sort of a catch to this 100:points: raffle. The only way it's really gonna go down is if most of my adoptables are sold, since I already have points set for the contest I have set in. (Link is at the bottom)
 These are my adopts.
-Since this is watcher celebration, and wanna join, you MUST watch me.
- Advertise my adoptables and contest/raffle. Like I said before, my adoptables MUST BE SOLD for the raffle.
- Favorite this Journal.
- Yes you can join both the contest and the raffle, but you cannot win both.
The Contest Link is Below The Text

This will also end on July 30th.
But if my adoptables do not get sold by that time, I will extend the raffle, until they are sold.

Bullet; Blue Whoever can contribute more prizes WILL be featured on my profile for a month! Bullet; Blue 
Good Luck to Everyone! :D
Bullet; Pink If you could commission/donate points, that would be super awesome! Bullet; Pink 
Commission Page (Progress) by illuminatedflower <- If you want to commission! All of these points are contributing towards this contest!
:bulletgreen: Every Contestant will receive a llama from me, my best friend, and :iconlemmykoopa794:! :bulletgreen:

Since time is getting near, I have to say how me and my friend are gonna judge this.

Accuracy - The expression of the character in the drawing, or anything else, like a background or something must meet the characteristics, it'd be a bit odd if they were OOC. (Out of Character) That doesn't mean they can't be doing something together that's not fun! Just long as they still act like themselves, or act a certain way in that kind of situation.
Effort - There are some people who have some amazing drawings, but then when contests arrive, I usually see that it's not as great. Put all of yourself in it, so that it really feels worth it, if say you were to win!
Style - Be it whatever kind of medium, Traditional or Digital, so long as the style fits with the character(s). 
Skill - Don't be too cocky/fret that just cause someone else's art seems better/worse. That's really all I can say. It's something I can't put in to words. We as judges are far more interested in what's in the above.
Interest - Considering how I have many characters in the above to draw, this is sort of based on which character(s)/pairings we (the judges) love the most, in other words, you were able to find what we really wanted. This is sort of a good and bad point. Again, as said, it all boils down to how well the effort was made.

I really, really hate to ask for this, but Josh and I are in serious need of money within the next two days ;w; We're currently struggling to get by until both of us receive paycheques, and we both don't know when we'll be paid (we both started our jobs within the last month, he should get a cheque within two weeks, but mine will be three or four.) We're both also starting school next month, and I'm honestly not sure at all how much my financial aid will cover.. 
Let me explain what it is we owe currently, though. 
At the current moment, our internet bill is on the 28th of the month. It's an $80 bill, and as it stands, we have enough money to pay for only rent for our apartment ($728, due to pet deposits.) Josh literally has 10$ in his bank account, and I have 733$. that leaves us with only 15$, and that definitely will not cover the internet bill. We also need money in case anything emergency comes up, or if we need to get food. 
Our electric bill is a
