The Ultimate Gallant Girl Icon Contest!

Contest Description:

Believe it or not, before I found this clipart that is currently the profile photo here on Gallant Girls Facebook page, this is the general idea I had come up with as a brainchild and envisioned. I did not picture a cartoon, per se, but I dreamt up a young girl in full body armor/warrier gear carrying a sword and shield. Hair color, eye color, and regalia were not specific, however. Yet, I *did* see her on a unicorn — not a horse, but a unicorn. All that I saw was a brave, courageous, daring, and strong young woman ready to conquer anything in her path!

Even so, upon further thought, I realize that a brave, courageous, daring and strong young woman could mean a LOT of different things to a lot of different people. I am wholly interested in YOUR interpretation, and THAT is what is going to make this illustration/graphic design contest all the more delightful, inspiring, and informative! So, providing the information of *my* vision that I just stated, I urge you to follow your instincts of what is true to you and go willy-nilly! Surprise me or stun me with your creation of my vision; whichever best suits YOUR imagination! As I have said, this is a joint effort, and you may have a vision that I never even fathomed.

Contest Fun Stuff:

Even if your submission is not elected to be the Ultimate Gallant Girl Icon, you *will* have your artwork showcased by way of being the GG Cover Photo for one week. Included in being featured as the GG Cover Photo will be all the information you’d like associated with your artwork/submission — name, background information, medium, links to your personal pages (www, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google +, etc.). We’re interested in celebrating anyone who is interested in the arts and what it means to be “Gallant”!
