Everyone can enter! There will be five winners, who will each receive TWO prizes. Therefore, your chances are of winning are better in this contest than in others that only have one winner. This contest is also specially designed so that beginners have a good chance of winning. Here are the specifics:
Post a drawing on my Facebook Fan Page: www.facebook.com/LEARN.TO.DRAW…
Your drawing will be of an original character that you design. It can be in a manga style, a cartoons style, fantasy, animal, or whatever suits you. Now, draw the expression and the body language so that we – as the viewers – can tell what the character is thinking or feeling! Try to be as specific as possible. You can use props and settings, but it’s not necessary. Here are a few examples:
-I’m so jealous
-That looks delicious
-I’ll protect you!
-Would I lie to you?
-That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen…!
-I think I’m in love!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
-Yes, it can be in black and white
-Yes, it can be in color
-Yes, it can be a sketch
-No, you cannot enter more than once
-No, I do not take bribes (unless it’s for a lot of money)
The last day to enter and post your stuff is Sunday, August 18th. I’ll announce the winners one week later, on Sunday, August 25th.

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES? (TELL ME, TELL ME…!!)
Each winner gets TWO prizes: A signed copy of one of my How-To-Draw books, inscribed to you as a winner in the contest & an original piece of signed art, which was published in one of my books (if the published art is not currently available, I’ll create original, signed sketches instead).
HOW WILL I GET MY PRIZES? (ME WANT PRIZES…!!)
The winners will contact me through my website at: www.chrishartbooks.com and tell me where they want me to send the prizes.
Good luck, all you cartooning and manga maniacs! I know you’ll do great, and have fun doing it.
