Melantha Meets Ash Ratigan by AaronBrawnstone

I have wanted very much to hold a contest this year, as 2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of the creation of my story, 'Flowers of Enchantment'.  :la:
October is such an important month to the story, and it's my favorite of the whole year, plus there's this gap between OC-Training rounds.... the time is right! :XD:
So... here it is~

New Worlds
OC Crossover Contest

Draw one of my characters dressed in the fashion of your world, interacting with one of your characters. 

:bulletyellow: Must be a watcher to enter. (new watchers welcome!)
:bulletyellow: Picture must depict at least one of my OCs, and at least one of yours.
:bulletyellow: If fitting them into your world means changing their species, that's cool!
:bulletyellow:  If your story is also set in the 80s.... you still have to design a new outfit for my OC (it's only fair XD)

:iconzakuro-kona: and my dear :icongerardmanslave: will be the judges.  :nod:
We'll be judging based on a number of things: effort, creativity, how well the outfits suits my OC, our amusement, etc. :XD: (we'll explain why we chose the winners)

Hello there DA, Zakuro here! Call me that or Raye. ^^ I'm a mostly traditional artist: a watercolor painter and illustrator of cartoons. I have way too many characters and stories in my head; I would really like to write and draw them all... if only I had enough time, motivation, and inspiration.
