I am holing a contest to help get name idea for [this fellow]
. I've been wanting to do a character sheet for 'em for a while now but am still stumped for a name, so please led me a hand with a name suggestion and you could win free art! The contest will be held on both FA and dA via journal.INFO
FOR THE CONTEST
So I need male or non gender specific names, does not have to be mlp style cutie-mark names since he does not have one. These can be people names, random jibber-jaber, or word combos like "sky-seeker". Please read the rules below for how to enter.
The contest will last from May 12th - June 14th at 11:59 pm est
There will be only 1 prize, for whoever suggests the name I love enough to use for the character. IF I cannot decide on 1 name I may ask my mate to help. If no name properly suits my 'lil mutant perfectly we will chose a close suggestion to be the winner and get the prize.
I will contact the winner via note and ask them who they want drawn for their prize.
SOME INFO ON THE CHARACTER [Old art of character]
~ [More old character art]This is my 'lil mutant, a strange hiccup of my brain gave him an extra set of back legs when sketching and from their just went a bit more... monster-esk than a normal pony. He has no hair just skin and 'soft' scale underside and back/inner legs, webbed spines for ears, spikes running down from head to tail tip, fangs, glowing eyes, and a snake/dragon like tail.
What I do have for a back story is that its an offspring of a dragon(m) and a horse(f), where it should have had wings, it ended up with an 3rd pair of limbs. Its technically genderless/cannot reproduce but I call it a "he"/"him" because it acts more male than female. Its omnivorous which means it eats just about anything. He is actually pretty intelligent but no one sticks around him long enough to find out he's more than just a monster. He's a cold aggressive mutant that tends to lash out at everyone.. or try to eat them. Never knew his father and mother died when he was young, he hates more than envies his father and his kind, wanting the ability to fly, but not to be "one of them". The mutant will eventually run into my other pony OC, [GalaxyWave], and after trying to catch her to eat, he sees through her illusions and realizes she's more valuable alive than in his stomach.RULES
