Chinese Horoscope Contest- Last Call!

Tue Jul 31, 2012, 2:03 PM
One final week to get your submission in before the full moon of August 31st; deadline is midnight August 30th for 

deviantART's Chinese Horoscope Contest!


Find your Chinese Animal Sign, and you've found the Gallery which needs your contribution (if you don't know your Chinese Animal Sign, please check here; you'll find three animal signs in there, primary of which is your DAY sign, but if you'd prefer, work on either your MONTH sign, or YEAR sign, or ALL THREE! You can enter this contest as many times as you'd like, but try to limit yourself to the BEST work you can do, and not the MOST work you can do :giggle: ):

Nope, still doesn't. I am not a very happy person naturally and I have no social skills. Nor do I possess any confidence. *Le sigh* It's fine though.
