Contest:  Tsuuchi BFF Raffle/Contest (OPEN)Hi there!
My best friend's birthday will be coming soon and I want to plan a birthday surprise for her. Unlike all the dumb little cards I made for her during previous years, I'm trying to make things a little more tech-y. My plan is to gather a whole bunch of digital art wishing her a happy birthday!
It can be almost anything, from just a little doodle to a comic strip, as long as it's digital. (because that's the theme ^^') But there are a few rules to follow:
-You DON'T need to be my watcher!!! I'm okay with anyone contributing to this little project!
- Do NOT post it anywhere when you're done. I want this to be a surprise and she might not like her gifts to be be shared to the public... (I'll let you know if she's okay with it; after her birthday) Please just note it to me.
- No NSFW/gore please. ^^'
-It should have a picture of her on it, just so it's a little more personalized ovo . (Just a simple reference: )

Contest:  Ms. Makeshift Then and Now contestHello everyone!!
As promised, it is time for another contest! If you have been participating in my recent polls then you would know who the most popular character is. Everyone loves Ms. Makeshift!!
I am very certain that my writer J-Arledge will do her justice when its time to get busy with JOG 2.0! But unfortunately that time is still quite a bit away so in the mean time you can catch up to all of the other comics @ !!
Now on to the details....
I am doing this contest as a collaboration with kennydalman 
For those who weren't aware of Ms. Makeshift's history, Kenny was actually going to be the original artist to helm the panels for Ms. Makeshift's now canceled comic Eltrosis Prodigy. All of this happened a little over 2 years ago so I figure I may as well do a contest to celebrate the character's growth since then :) 


The rules are simple:
Simply take this image and color it.
