Contest 006 - Design Murasaki-dono!

Right off the heels of Design Aoi-sama comes Design Murasaki-dono! The dono/tono suffix is a bit archaic, but it was used to show respect, especially to lords or masters. Since it's not used much in the present, using the suffix can be a joke or exaggeration. (Think... Hitachiin twins calling Tamaki "Tono". Are they respecting him? I guess in some ways they are. XD;. Let's see, respect... Kenshin is famous for calling Kaoru "Kaoru-dono", but then, RK is set in the past). Whether you want it to be actual respect or joking respect, it's up to your interpretation~

After submissions close, voting will be open for 1 week. I will have entries up in one post where people can place their vote. The submission with the most votes will become our official "Murasaki-dono." You must allow your art to be used in the TCG in graphics such as banners, icons, and cards. Be prepared to have your art featured as the model for future pics of Murasaki-dono!

Murasaki-dono's appearance
♥ Murasaki-dono's hair must be purple and Murasaki-dono must wear predominantly purple.
♥ Murasaki-dono must wear traditional Japanese garb (Hakama, haori, kimono, yukata, etc) and traditional Japanese footwear. (Geta, tabi, waraji, zouri, etc)
♥ Murasaki-dono must have butterflies somewhere.
♥ Murasaki-dono must wear hair ornaments.

Other guidelines
♥ Your art must feature Murasaki-dono from head to toe.
♥ Your art must be original and drawn by you!
♥ Drawings must be at least 600px wide and saved as a gif/png/jpg file. I will resize your image for voting, but I will also link your original and any extras you wish to include.
♥ Only one submission is allowed per member. Please do not send me variations. I will only take one submission. You are free to include other views of the character, but I will only display one view in the voting post. I will link the rest.
♥ Send your submissions in by email to rykatu[at]yahoo[dot]com as an attachment. Make sure to label the subject of the email with "Colors TCG Murasaki-dono submission - your name". Please include the name you use in the TCG since not all emails match up with names.
♥ Please do not post your art elsewhere until voting ends.
♥ The deadline is December 30 at Noon, 12 PM PST time (GMT -8).

Happy designing! <3 Since this month is a busy month with holidays for many, I will post a one week reminder when the deadline gets closer. I'm unsure if having the deadline so close to New Years is a smart idea. |D
