I also added a point about adding your PS username to your submission. If you haven't already, please edit your post to include your PS username. (If you submitted it ON PS this doesn't apply of course)
Well here’s my third submission and most likely my final so give a big welcome to Squints the Flygon. I’ve always thought that flygon would be the one dragon type mon thought would just sit down mid battle and crack open a book and start reading. It’s just those red goggle things that cover its eyes. Anyways Squints enjoys reading (Much like the other submissions) What more can I possibly say? It’s a dank heckin dragon that reads. Oh and lookie here it gots a cup of coffee.
We've got just a little under two weeks left before entries are closed, and the amount of talent you guys have shown so far is amazing! From this point on, entrants can feel free to DM Anubis here on Smogon or on PS! under the same username for your Rowlet! Quills and other prizes will be awarded once voting has closed, so don't worry about that just yet.
However, some of the entries that have been posted don't meet the requirements for a valid submission, and as such the following users will be unable to claim any prizes until their entries have been edited to be legal:
itsjustdrew - this probably isn't a final entry but I'm just letting you know as a formality that sketches aren't accepted. ExTopaz7 - this is an original artwork contest, we cannot accept edits of images or traced artwork. Maverick Axl - that Weedle is on Google Images. We cannot accept edits of others' work. RiotJr - that background needs to be removed, we don't have the tools to remove it while preserving the quality of the entry. Shiero16 - you said it's unfinished, so again, this is a formality to say we don't accept sketches. Professor Mesquite - please resubmit your entry as a .PNG with a transparent background, we can't accept work placed on our logo. dragonite4650 - we aren't accepting sketches. TheTankPlays - we don't have the tools to remove this background while preserving the quality of the artwork. Stevie_G_Plays - we aren't accepting work laid over our logo, and this isn't your original artwork. KazimierzWielki - we can't accept artwork laid over our logo. Please resubmit with a transparent background. Moxie Dexter - we don't accept edits of others' artwork, or entries with background artifacts that interfere with the main image. Jackelope12 - we aren't accepting sketches as entries.
Hello, I am tagging you all to point you to Tys's post above mine. We're nearing the end of the contest, but if you want to pick up your Rowlet (Archimedes) now, you can contact me on here or on PS! under the same name to arrange the trade. If you don't want it, that's fine!
I thought Swadloon looked awfully comfy with it's "blanket" and pictured it having a nice, relaxing cup of tea while reading books. Also, doesn't the leaf undercoat look so silky?
Meet Kayla the Swadloon!
Kayla is always at the library when she has free time. Although she is not officially a librarian, Kayla loves helping other visitors with things such as finding the location of a book. She takes pride in her ability to use string shot to pull down books from the tallest shelves. Her favorite activity is to read to her best friend, Sally the blind Joltik (also depicted above ) who shares her interest in romantic stories. Although a little cold at first, Kayla quickly warms up to anybody she finds a common interest with especially fanfiction. Just don't disturb the library's peace. She wont hesitate to remove you.
Being a good helper in the library
Impressing people with string shot trick shots
Being compared to a cabbage
PS Name: Anke (feel free to PM if you want any of the other images in .png format)
Scry the Noctowl here. Don't worry, he doesn't talk much, but he's a real character. He'll just be making sure you behave and to return all of your check outs on time. On time. Promptly. And don't worry. He'll make sure you do so.
This is Cato The Glameow (Though if he gets picked, his name can be changed to anything)
His name means "Wise and All Knowing", And it sounds a slight bit like cat.
Cato is very responsible when it comes to maintaining the library, and is a great helper and even likes to hold books with his tail. Though he has a habit of being clumsy at the same time, dropping his books quite often, he always picks it up after though.
I picked a glameow for the design to be based off of due to the assumption that cats are intelligent animals, and I feel like glameow looks very smart for some reason.
This is the best girl ever, Chimey, the librarian of The Library. She has read every book in the library and her knowledge and charm is known throughout the library, helping out new users and old with a silent ring of her bell, guiding them throughout the library to wherever their hearts desire, and even helping others with writing essays and books (Shes written over 120 books, a new one for each new user she's seen). She even loves to play games! Making others happy and helping others is what makes her happy, and with so many kind people around her, being a librarian is the best job in the world!
