Hello everyone! We will be holding design contests for the 2019 Summer Festival. Please make sure to read the rules carefully!


1. Design an Avatar Outfit for the Summer Festival. Please use the following bases to draw your avatar items on.

Male Avatar Base

Female Avatar Base

The following can be included all in one entry for avatars:

1 Avatar Outfit
1 Avatar Wings
1 Avatar Back Item
1 Avatar Held Item
1 Avatar Head Item

2. You must draw the items on the avatar base. In case your drawing skills aren't great then along with your drawing you can include a description to better help us envision your avatar items. If you are unable to draw something, then I am sorry, there will be no exceptions.

3. Avatar Items submitted must be Summer Themed. So anything to do with the Summer season, this includes any holidays that fall in the Summer season, Summer weather etc.

4. Please do not reserve posts. If you reserve a post I will delete your post.

5. Please do not Ping me with your submission. Please only Ping me if you have a question.

6. Before submitting your entry please make sure to scan the thread to see if someone else has done something similar. Try to make your entry unique and if someone has already done something that you were wanting to do...then I highly suggest you pick something different. If you feel someone has "copied" your design, do not say anything to that person - especially in this thread.

7. You may only submit ONE official entry. If you wish to submit more then you can send me a PM with drawings of your avatar item ideas. However all PMed entries that are sent to me will not count for prizes.

8. The end date is May 29th 2019 at 11:59 PM server, after that there is no guarantee that we will see your entry and the thread will be locked once designs are picked.


I am very aware that it's typical to use google to search for ideas when designing things. However, it is extremely important that if someone happens to be referencing another person's artwork, it should not be possible to google it and find exactly what was used as reference. Please make sure to change it enough and be creative enough that you're making it your own design. This is extremely important not just for ethical reasons but also for legal reasons when we're implementing something onto our site. Thank you! =)


All entries that are picked will have their avatar items created and be given one free copy of the submitted items. Everyone that participates will also receive a participation prize.

Don't comment on someone's entry unless you have something nice to say. If someone copies your entry then have faith in us that we will determine the correct winner. Please do not fight over entries, if I see anyone doing this in the thread then whoever is fighting will be disqualified.

~I dunno what to call it~

The male version is basically the female base, but it has red and white striped shorts, a long blue tank-top with white stars and a red bandanna .

Bro I totally had this design already made xD

Since I'm new to this thing, do the drawing of the winners submissions go into the game if they meet the art standards, or do artists re-draw them?

Wow, these are early! How fortunate that I already designed mine a week or two ago. And I'm glad, because I'm kind of excited about these. They came together really quickly after I had the inspiration.

I'm not actually sure what to call the set. I had the outfits named "Cloud Princess" and "Cloud Prince", so maybe..."Cloud Royal Garb"? "Sky Castle Regalia"? Or maybe just the "Fluffy Cloud" set?

The cloud princess set:
Outfit: A fluffy dress with sun details.
Head: Fluffy hair with a sun crown or headdress
Wings: The wings are the part I'm the least happy with right now; they just need more detail or a different shape.
Held: A staff with a sun in the center, another circle outside, clouds on the top and filling in gaps, lines on the sides representing wind, and chains with raindrop beads hanging from the bottom. (A weather staff, basically.)
Background: A setting above the clouds. A reference from Google:

(I really like the pictures of clouds that look almost like a landscape, with a cloud "sea" with cloud "mountains" in the background.)

The male version, with poofy shorts, a cloud-shaped ruff, and shorter hair.

Another, more dramatic, coloration, based on storm clouds when the sun is low.

I also had an alternate female outfit with just one extra detail; I wasn't sure if it was really necessary:

The only difference is the little cloud extras on the sides of the skirt. Not sure what they're called.

(Note: It probably doesn't need explanation, but it's summer themed because big poofy clouds are associated with summer weather.)

Ideas for other colorations:

A moonlit color would have black, silver, blue, and a bit of golden.

"Sunset Fire"(Sunset is a little predictable, but with a little variation maybe...) A change from the usual sunset, maybe make the color look almost like fire?

A pale sunset, and an overcast day color are other possibilities.

These are just suggestions, obviously.

Lots of images this time....
(Improved version of my 2018 Summer design)

Summer Garden Party Attire /
Tropical Aurleon Flapper Attire

This design is based on the summer garden parties held at stately homes that you often see in period dramas (films like The Great Gatsby, Atonement, Downton Abbey, etc). The stately homes are always surrounded by beautiful gardens with tropical birds such as flamingos, peacocks, parrots wandering free...

I drew three colour versions, I hope that is ok!
Flamingo / Peacock / Parrot

Outfit: Summer Garden Party Attire / Tropical Aurleon Flapper Attire
Wings: Tropical Aurleon Feather Shawl
Back: Summer Garden Party Background
Held: Tropical Aurleon Familiar
Head: Summer Garden Party Headpiece / Tropical Aurleon Flapper Headpiece

Flamingo Attire

Peacock Attire

Parrot Attire

Summer Garden Party Background (Garden) - with/without gazebo

Summer Garden Party Background (Beach) - with/without gazebo

I've decided to continue my "Ice Cream theme", so here are my designs;

So I'll start off with the hair.
Of course, the hair itself is made of Ice Cream, along with a cherry on top.
I was thinking of adding sprinkles, but decided not to, it's and idea tho.





And here are the dudes hair.





Anddd now for the outfits...
Originally, for the girls, I was gonna make the bottom of the skirt/dress transparent, but I forgot when making, and is too lazy to fix.





And then the dudes... again.





We move on to the wings, not sure as to what I was thinking when making this.





On with the held item, I made luffoxes with ice cream on their head, because why not?





Lastly I made a beach themed background, admittedly, it's not the best I could've done, but it's something.

I'd credit any references that I'd used but I didn't use any references.

Just gotta ignore the minor inconsistencies throughout this post...

Some of your pictures don't show up, and it looks like this, but the chocolate hair, strawberry outfit, mint wings and back do show up and they look pretty good, especially loving the wings!

Sixties Summer Swing Party Set!
(working on the title, it's a bit of a mouthful)

Sixties Swing Cane // Summer Spotty Polka Bag

Summer Swing Party Attire (the male suit would've been paired with some shiny boots but I can't draw shoes lol)
Colour variations can just replace the green and gold (Eg, Blue and Silver, Red and

Summer Swing Top Hat (can work ontop of a female hairdo too) // Summer Swing Hairdo (Sorry I can't draw hair for guys)

Inspiration mostly came from the fact I love collecting vintage dresses and the summer is the perfect time to wear them ^^
Classic suit and top hat design for the male, and I combined a few of my favourite vintage dress elements into one!
