Hey everyone!

Now that we have a winner for November (grats Ares), it's time for the next of our Shitty Art Contests! The theme this month is "shit that pugs do". Again, you can draw something for any game you play, and the prize is $20 in any game of your choice! I'll also gift things on steam or some other platform of your choice.

In the event of a tie, this month's winner will be chosen by ArcticRosie, who came up with the theme!

We're going to do 3 weeks of entries this time, with the last week for votes. Get em in before the 24th!
Hey all,

Whelp I couldn't figure out a clever way to let people vote on the same thread as the actual shitty art contest, so here's a new thread just for that.

The winner will get $20 in their game of choice, I'll have to figure out how to get it to em. I'd also be happy with any suggestions for next month's theme.

Here are our entries!

Not a real entry by Destiny!
