For the sake of general clarity as a whole.

Do the rules include Equestria Girls?

Pretty sure you can, Evil Pink One did a Equestria Girl for the previous contest :twi:

@SCS Is it ok if I dedicate my submission to someone and put them in it? A friend of mine recently had to leave the forums because their mom said "this site probably has internet dangers" and while their account is still active, I'm not sure we'll ever see @Octavia Scratch again. (At least not for two years because by then she'll be an adult.)

My time with her was short, but I would like to dedicate my submission to her in memory, and make an OC of her name (Essentially a fusion of Octavia and Vinyl). If that is ok with you of course. I still miss her a lot :(

That really sucks, so bad she can't convince her mother how this place is not only secure but also extremely friendly, it's good to see that you want to make a drawing in honor :kindness:

Sad story. It's definitely harsh level of control from the parents side.

If I were you I would paint both Vinyl and Octavia. Their duo could be a tribute to your friend without contest rules violation.

I mean, I do see her Mom's point. The majority of Bronies on this site are adults, and adults can be predators, because you can lie on the internet. So, while I understand the concern, but I still think it's bullsh*t.

Yeah, I'd be down with either option, and if I do what Crypty Scribbles said, I'm probably gonna have me with the two of them.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I can relate to how you feel because I have lost many friends who I still think about all the time. I also can understand where their parents are coming from as a result of how many years I've spent dealing with the darker sides of humanity.

I agree with Silky -- I definitely have no problem with you dedicating your entry to your friend, and drawing it anyway you see fit.
