Hey guys! I don't know if anyone remembers, but last year I made a drawing contest, and it went really well, so I was thinking of doing it again.  

VERY IMPORTANT!: You do not have to be *good* at drawing, or have to use a particular style. Everything is welcome, including doodles and stetches. One of the coolest things about this is getting to see all different art peices.

So, how it works:

I'll PM* everyone a DIFFERENT emotion (sadness, joy, surprise, etc.) then you have to draw what makes you think of that emotion. 

 

If anyone is interested/curious here is the link to last years contest: 

http://www.nmgmembers.com/messageboards/emotion-a-drawing-contest

 

 

Deadline: July 30th 2019

 

Rules:

All entries just be tagged "Emotion; A drawing Contest (year two)" 

ONE entry per person

Please include what your emotion was in the title of your entry when you post it

Leave a link in the comments to you entry

Obviously keep everything NMG appropriate

All entrys must be submitted by July 30th August 4th

Up to 15 people can enter 

Don't tell anyone what your emotion is (people will find out when you post your entry with a title of your emotion) 

 

I will be judging based on: 

How much emotion shows

Creativety and uniqueness

 

I will chose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

    You’re drawing is so sweet. Your dog's expression is adorable, and the way you’re both cuddling shows how much you love her. The gentle background and words above really add a perfect touch.

Speaking Before Thinking

I tend to snap at people a lot even when I'm not feeling angry and I don't know why and I want some advice on how to stop snapping so often. -Anonymous      I’m sorry that you’re struggling with this; it’s really difficult when emotions start bubbling over and a line is accidentally crossed, especially when it’s toward a loved one. I can certainly relate to this; when I get overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious, I do have a tendency to be a little cold and, sometimes, rude to the people I love.…

I’ve always been quite shy, and especially when I was younger, I worried that I’d never be able to make good friends. Now I’m seventeen, I have a small group…

What should I do? -Anonymous Your not alone anon, that’s a fear everyone has when they have crush- and it makes sense!
