Here are some free programs that you guys might find useful

-For painting, and Photo manipulation which can also be used for drawing, I suggest Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter.

Fl Studio is free for only the demo which isn't a trial but you can't open a file to edit or work on it so you'll have to leave your computer on and make music without saving and export as mp3. [link]
CONTEST DEADLINE IS AT THE END OF APRIL!!! You have less than 2 weeks until the contest is over.
I've decided to do the contest since there is a decent amount of people wanting to enter.
So almost two months ago I saw that
had a contest of Xeno's birthday of being a FC for a year. I realized my FC Crome is almost over a year old, however I missed the actual time the FC was created by months. I made the character last October 2010. So he's a few months past the year old mark, but I still want to do a contest for my FC anyway. Xon I'm sure is also almost a year old when the month hits April.
It's been a while since I've done a contest. Last time I checked it was last summer. (Might do one for Xon but after this contest)
Theme would be of course my FC Crome, doing whatever.
Could be with your fc/oc, could be him screaming like a girl, could be him doing his major derp ups, his nerdy scientific stuff, drunk and could be the crazy psychopath side of him. I don't care, as long as he's in character.
Nothing sexual, racist, romance (Crome isn't attracted to anything, or anyone) and anything offensive.
Reference/bio is here
Prizes would be like last time
1st: 400 points, and a full colored drawing of my best
2nd: Llama, and a traditional shaded inked drawing
If you do enter the contest make sure that you actually want to do it, and have the time. The contest is like last time, a 2 month deadline. Please comment below if you want to enter.
It doesn't have to be a amazing drawing or comic. All you have to do is draw his looks/personality right. Contest ends May 4th
