Alright guys, the contest is over! Thanks for all the awesome entries! I'll judge them and decide a winner soon.

So, I was running barefoot through the wilderness admiring hot dudes watering flowers and thinking about anime characters when suddenly... BAM! I was struck forcefully in the head by an idea for a contest with a rhyming name!

Welcome to the SAME NAME GAME!

CONCEPT
Using my mystical otaku/gamer powers, I discovered that many anime characters share names. And are often quite different from each other. Which is funny when you end up with a good-looking serious vampire guy sharing his name with a cute pink magical little girl.

YOUR MISSION
Draw two or more characters together that share their name!

RULES
:bulletblack:No OCs! This is a fanart contest! The characters can be from anime, video games, manga, movies, or random things like Vocaloid.
:bulletblack:Two or more characters per entry. It kind of defeats the purpose if you only draw one.
:bulletblack:Any kind of art is fine. But no literature. Digital, traditional, if you really wanted to go far then cosplay, anything is fine as long it's visual art.
:bulletblack:No bases. No stealing. (duh) All art must be made by you.
:bulletblack:You may make as many entries as you like, but only one can win.
:bulletblack: The characters must share the name, no matter how, even if it is the last name of one and the first name of the other.
:bulletblack:You don't need to draw them doing something, just put them in the same picture. But you'll certainly do a lot better if you put them in a situation/place/anything.
:bulletblack:I will alert anyone who breaks a rule so they may fix it, but art thieves will be immediately disqualified and reported.

HOW ON EARTH THIS WORKS
Judging
The main part of this is simply judging the entries based on technique, creativity, how much I spill my tea, etc.
Bonus Round!
Yeah, you heard right. I will be awarding bonus points, and whoever gets the most will get THE BONUS PRIZES. :new: In the event of a tie, the person who reached that amount first gets the prizes. People who don't even make an entry can still win the Bonus Round. You can get bonus points for:
:bulletblack:donating prizes (one point per prize)
:bulletblack:donating points (separate from prizes-one point per place offered to)
:bulletblack:advertising the contest (one point per type of ad, you may advertise on other sites as well but make sure to include that only entries submitted to dA are accepted)
:bulletblack:making an entry with more than two characters (one point only)
:bulletblack:alerting me to stolen entries >:T (one point per thief ratted out, I don't expect to give much of these)

Who has how many points: fav.me/d53yc8y
