Thank you to everyone who entered our very first contest! Your task was to draw Prince Frederic’s loyal valet, REGINALD! Poor Reginald has been Frederic closest confidant and most loyal servant since the prince was born—and yet, he’s never had his own portrait… Until now! Here is the winning entry by Amy Park!

Contest #1: What the Heck Does That Character Look Like, Anyway: Reginald Edition has had its deadline extended. Entries will now be accepted until midnight on Sunday, October 18th. So what are you waiting for? Draw me some pictures! Creativity counts for more than artistic talent, so don’t worry if your best work is in the “lopsided stick figure” genre, just make your lopsided stick figure look totally butler-like. I have the most awesome fans in the world: I know you can do it!

Hey, look at you, scrolling all the way down to the bottom! Good for you! Congratulations on being so thorough!
