1st Annual Down with Digital Art Contest

So I've noticed that most of the art related to HEE is digital (i.e. photo manips, etc.) and that made me want to host an art contest centered around good old fashioned pen(cil) and paper. There's three classes to choose from, please pick the one closest to your current level of skill. There is no theme, only that there should be some connection to horses or other equines. The deadline will be a ways away because art can be time consuming and there's the holidays coming up like Halloween and Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Years and any other holidays that people celebrate, so yeah the deadline isn't until the very beginning of 2017.

Aside from the theme there are no other restrictions.
All non digital art is acceptable, this includes: paints of all types,ceramics and sculptures, raw photography, colored pencils, markers, pens, crayons, etc...
Please have your stable name and/or number somewhere on or next to the piece(s) you are submitting.
You can enter a collection of pieces, no more than 4 total pieces though, and they must have a unifying factor to be a collection (all being equine related doesn't count).
When posting your art please include a short description about the idea behind it and the materials you used. Please and Thank You!

Deadline: January 2nd, 2017 because I know the traditional methods take a while to do and the holidays are rolling around pretty fast...

Classes:
Amateur:
Beginner hobbyist level
Prizes; 1st place: 20k and an EEP mare, 2nd Place: 10k and a PEP mare
Experienced; Advanced hobbyist level
Prizes; 1st place: 50k and an EEP mare, 2nd place: 30k and 2 PEP mares
Professional: Expert hobbyist or career level
Prizes; 1st place: 100k, EEE straws and 2 EEP mares, 2nd place: 65k and an EEP mare
*Prizes may change, but will not decrease in value* *I may actually increase the value...*

Hmm... Might enter this. I can't remember the last time I finished a traditional piece :)

Although, I would suggest listing up what makes a beginner, experenced or professional artist. I gotta agree with the others here; I just don't know where I would fit xD

My entry: HEE Art contest! https://imgur.com/a/JzZY8

There are three for four pictures. Don't ask why. They are all of Sfen from Frozen he was/if my favorite character. The one left was my si st ers print off, so I used a blank shet of paper, traced it, but also made it my own. And then with the sharpie bleeding though I filled it out on the back. Hence why one is faceing left, and th other right. I used different color (middle of pictures) to color in my copy (right). And I made/changed alot of the Lind longer or shorter, well mostly longer. I added lines, and made his tail smaller. I tryed to fade his coat together, but that did not work. Hope you like! Good luck to eveyone!

I did this mid 2014 and have been hunting to find this for lots of people just to show off and JUST found it a couple days ago. I plan on making it into a digital piece so it has been cut out from blank sheet of paper.. I took a basic art class back in 2010 as a freshman but have just doodled for fun my entire life off and on.. dont know where to put myself.. I feel like I'm somewhere between ameture and Experienced :P But for the sake I know there are younger players with even less experience than me I'll go with the middle level :P
