I'm looking for some really good art of 3 of my Original Characters!
The big prize for art the best art is 8k nuggets, and any that I like I will buy for 100 nuggets each! There are 3 options for characters to draw, each having varying difficulty and taking different skills!

Drawing Style: Whatever you can do! But it must be your own work!
Where do I submit it?: Please upload it onto an image hosting site (such as imgur or a site like it) and share the link.
Background?: If you'd like to draw one, you can! Each character has a notes section for additional inspiration or information you may need for specific angles, and I'll add more if needed so feel free to ask questions.
What if my art doesn't end up looking like the character?: I'll let you know, and if you want to change it then you can!

I'm looking to buy A LOT of art, so I won't discourage anyone from drawing art of multiple characters or multiple pieces of art for one! This contest ends on the last day of February so that artists have plenty of time to make whatever art they want to!

Character 1: Crimson, he's a D&D god from a campaign I played in 2018-early 2020.
Description: Crimson is a D&D (Western) dragon the size of a mountain who has 6 legs, and 5 heads. Each of his heads are a different color of D&D chromatic dragon (black, blue, green, red, and white), and crimson colored red feather beards. His horns don't curve or anything like that, just sit back and then at the ends go up a bit, and his body scales are all crimson and platinum colored. He has a skeletal body, and his wings have tufts of feathers at the ends. On his front right foot is a platinum gauntlet, and his tail is that of a D&D wyvern's.
Note: If you want to do a close-up of one of his heads, then a black-colored maybe blackbird needs to be sitting on his head, as his close friend and minor god of death he created (Bolt) lives on his horns!

Character 2: Teller, Crimson's creation and a lonely questioner of the world. Teller has many friends but will never be able to see them again once it randomly teleports to a new world.
Description: Teller is 6 inches tall. Its coloration is purple, but 8 white eyes with black lines going through it. The "main" eyes are a bit more angular, with 3 circular eyes on either side of them which get smaller down the side of the face. It has two nostrils which are teardrop shaped, akin to a lizard's in some ways, and it has bug incisors in its mouth. It has a long snake-like and forked tongue in said mouth, as well. It has fox/cat-like ears which are extremely fuzzy, but the rest of its head is scaley rather than furry. From the ears and neck down to the tail, Teller is coated in fur. It has feathered wings the same color as the rest of its body, and 6 legs which poke out from the side and appear to be sideways at first glance, but once you see it move the legs scuttle very swiftly from side to side. Each leg ends in a paw which has retractable claws (which Teller hardly ever uses as its a gentle-abomination). It has a short and stumpy tail like a dog with a docked tail.
Note: Teller wouldn't ever wear clothes, and as it doesn't eat, drink, or use the bathroom, wouldn't ever be eating, drinking, or seen in a bathroom (those are far too unhygienic for it)

Character 3: Bolt (No art and thus no Toyhouse page yet), a very simple bird who does his job and wishes he could have a family, but he's cursed/magically held to his best friend and major god who gave him sentience. He's seen some stuff as an effect. No one knows what kind of bird he is. Not even the DM.
Description: Just a blackbird/black bird with VERY knowing eyes. As if the things he's seen as a regular bird still haunt him as a god, and in a way they do.
Note: Bolt must be drawn on or near some part of Crimson's body as he cannot get farther than 60 feet away from the major god. He is essentially a speck on the bigger god's body, though, so very little detail needs to go into that part of the picture if you do any background at all!

Title: Winner and Buying Art

It's time for the winner to be announced!

But first, let me let you know how much I appreciate anyone participating in this contest! And BOY did the art turn out amazing! Alas, there can be only one winner, but I would like to buy each of your pieces of art!

I will send a gift of 100 nuggets for the payment of them, and by accepting you're giving me permission to use your art (with credit to you) made of my OC! If you'd like me to credit you some specific place (a toyhouse account, or anywhere else) then please let me know where once you've accepted the payment! I plan to create Bolt's page on toyhouse now that I've got art for him and the others will have their art on display on their own character's respective pages.

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for...

The winner is NekoScrub with their art of Teller!

This might seem unprofessional, but as art is subjective, I wanted to give my reasoning for why I chose this outcome
While I'm actually partial to pictures of Crimson, the only entry didn't have his iconic gauntlet (I don't mind though, no picture is ever perfect), and there were some ADORABLE pictures of Bolt which I absolutely love (especially the depiction of Bolt flapping his wings as fast as he can to presumably try to keep up with Crimson's absolutely speedy flying speeds because being magically teleported isn't pleasant for the birb) making the direction that Teller's legs come out from its body at obvious without making it stand on all 6 is something that I just can't get down in any of my art of him, and I assume it's rather hard as most animals with paws just look WRONG with them being drawn that way and it's probably natural instinct to make it ambiguous rather than super obvious that they stick the wrong way compared to all other furbabies. But something about the way those legs are drawn on NekoScrub's version of Teller is AMAZING!

Now, those are just some highlights I came away with, and like I said, I love ALL of the art for all 3 characters. I'm sending out the prize and nuggets to buy the art asap, so check your GTS and keep posted in the gift section for all nuggets being sent out!
