(Note from the mod: Apologies again for the long delay since the last post! After Bronycon and school started, I got hit with a depression that sapped any motivation I had left. I’m going to do my best to make sure that I can keep making updates more regularly now to make up for it. Thank you to all of my followers who stuck it out. Let’s get back on the proverbial horse!)

5k Contest 3rd place winners!

Alright guys, it’s time to decide the last round of winners!

As promised, there will be three winners for this one and each will receive one sketch of any single character.

The winners of this prize were chosen at random using a Python script I wrote myself. You can see the source code here. The list of entries was captured immediately after the contest ended, so any entries submitted after midnight on the 17th were not recorded. I will contact the winners of this prize, if I do not get a response within 7 days, I will re-roll that winner’s position and contact a new winner.

Here are the results:

Seed: 1408700215
Total entries: 238
194 reblogs and 44 fanart submissions with 20 people doing both


There are three winners for third place.
They are…

  1. voidguardiannat
  2. moonpony
  3. drawingpatchmod

I will contact the winners to let them know that they won and to get their request for me to draw.

Two of these winners submitted fanart, displayed below:

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who submitted! It means a lot really! There were some really awesome submissions, and I’m going to be posting a few of my other favorites that didn’t win any prizes as Honorable Mentions.

Thank you followers for sticking through all my posts about the contest. I promise, more updates are coming soon! The mod’s life has gotten a little bit crazy these last couple of weeks, and there’s been little time to work on updates. But they are still coming, and soon hopefully!

Here is the 2nd place winner!

Hi DarkFlame,
I just finished my entree for you contest! Last minute, I know, but I didn’t get any good ideas until yesterday. I enjoy Student of the Night, it has some of my favorite things, bat ponies, mysteries, adventure, and Luna! Thanks for holding this contest. It encouraged me to finally finish something epic. I wish you the best in your pony comic endeavors!

This won the poll with 20 votes (The next highest was tied for 12 votes)! It’s really awesome and adorable, I’m in love with it! Thank you! I’m very pleased that it won second place.
The second place winner will get one colored drawing of any single character with no background. I’ll contact the winner to ask what they want me to draw for them.
Keep posted shortly for the 3rd place winners, and then the posts about the contest will be over, I swear.

Congratulations to frankensteed! Their submission wins the first place prize in the Student of the Night 5,000 followers fanart contest!
I absolutely love this picture! It was definitely a hard choice to pick a first place winner, but this one stuck out to me the most in the end. I love it, thank you!
As per the contest rules, they win one illustrated commission from me with any single colored and shaded character and a simple background. I’ll contact them privately to arrange what this request will entail.
Again, this was not an easy decision and I had to turn down some really awesome submissions! But don’t worry, there are still two prizes up for grabs that I’ll talk more about later…
