And the winner of the third contest is Dreubug! Trixie's smiling face is my favorite part of this picture. She looks so happy with her cracker! A wonderful traditional work, most definitely. Second place goes to iJab with a great rendering of humanized Trixie. Excellent job on this as well!
The forth contest shall now get underway!
The Trixie Supremacy Drawfest 2013 #4: Theme
Trixie in a spooky outfit
A little late for Halloween, yeah? Yeah, but no matter! It is never out of season to put Trixie in some fun alternative outfits, so that's just what we will do for her. These outfits however will have a certain dark intensity to them, to fit with the superstitious late months. "Intimidating" and "gorgeous" should be your thoughts as requirements for this Trixie piece. She's pulled it off once in her Alicorn amulet garb, so Trixie is no stranger to a style of that nature.
Illustrate Trixie in an outfit that balances her beauty and grace with a hint of fear. Bold and beautiful!
An overly complex background, or a background at all, is not required. It is up to the illustrator.
If you would like to include a Halloween treat bag for Trixie in your picture, by all means do so! As it is now past Halloween though, it isn't a requirement.
This is a solo picture of Trixie, so no other characters may be present from the show. Unrelated things like a bat or a black cat to decorate the scene with however is fine.
The Trixie Supremacy Drawfest 2013: How it works
Each month a new drawing theme centered around Trixie will be presented. Artists will have one month to illustrate it. When time is up, all of the particpating entries will be put on display in the Journal. From here, all Members, Watchers, and passerbys are encouraged to vote on which entries they like the most. The voting will last for one week. The votes will greatly help me on deciding a winner, so please vote!

The Trixie Supremacy Drawfest 2013: Rules1.
The illustration must be shown to me via deviantART note
before it is completely finished and uploaded to deviantART, ideally when it is half-way done and not yet rendered with color or ink, so it may be approved for the contest. Your picture will stay completely confidential between you and me. Easy to use image upload sites include Imgur and Photobucket. Imgur: imgur.com Photobucket: photobucket.com
When the picture is complete, you may submit it to the entries folder with the title: "The Trixie Supremacy Drawfest 2013" followed by the number of the theme and your name. Example: "The Trixie Supremacy Drawfest 2013 #1 TheMegaX". Some questionable submissions were created unintentionally last year and I mean to avoid that happening again by whatever means necessary. If a contestant does not comply with this processing, they may be disqualified from that theme.
I do not want to turn away any illustrations due to misunderstandings, so this is the only way it can be avoided.2.
Submissions may not contain any material that conflicts with the group's rules.3.
Late submissions will not be accepted into the contest, but will still be housed into the entry folder for display. Please be on time!4.

"What are points and what can I do with them?"
When I first joined deviantART and for a long time after, I didn't know the value of points. Basically they are a currency usable on deviantART only, bought with real life money. I'll list a few things you can do with points.
You may buy a premium membership with them. Premium services allow you to customize your deviantART page further. Backgrounds, animated gifs, increased amounts of search engine results, more widgets, more everything! It's a really nice luxury if you browse or are active on deviantART.
You can buy items in the deviantART store. It has a variety of things, ranging from backpacks, collectables, t-shirts, and so-on. The biggest highlight no doubt are prints that can be bought of your favorite pictures on deviantART. Like for example, an artist you really love has a picture of Trixie for sale as a print. You can order a poster sized print or whatever dimension you want, of high quality material, with lamination. deviantART prints are professional grade, tip-top products.
Points can be used as payment for commissions of all kinds. A lot of artists on deviantART use points as payment for art they will draw for you or other merchandise, like plushies. Commission a picture you'd enjoy from an artist who accepts point commissions!
Buy somebody a cake badge!
Badges are a popular thing on deviantART. The cake badge is highly sought out because of the somewhat hefty 80 point requirement to give one. They serve as tokens of endearment. Many people have been on deviantART for years and never obtained a cake badge from anybody. The more pieces of cake an individual obtains, the larger the cake becomes. Give somebody on deviantART that you like a cake badge!
If for whatever reason you cannot think up something to do with the points, give them away! You can give other people points as a gift. Endulge your generous side and give the points to somebody who could use them. You can also gift people premium membership and your name will appear as the giver on their deviantART page. Giving a premium membership to an artist you love will no doubt be appreciated by them!
This should be entertaining to see what types of intimidating outfits Trixie can wrap herself up in to put the shakes in all the ponies! I hope everybody has fun!
If you are interested in helping the contests via contributing pot prizes, commissions, and what-not for the contending artists, please leave a little something in the Journal or note me. Thanks!
