Sucks you can't draw anyone you want.

Glad more countries are allowed in this time.

One more year and I'll legally be old enough to submit. My art skills aren't enough to win but I sure as hell would submit artwork. I'm excited to see the winners, though knowing digimon fans, I'm feel like I know a Sukamon card won't be the winner. Either not enough people will draw them or those who draw more popular digimon like literally every single other one in the list.

Like come on. Give that poor digimon a chance.

I was thinking Duskmon or Raidenmon. But since it's provided I'm thinking WarGreymon or LadyDevimon. Oh what's that? I suck at drawing? Hmmm.
