Xero of the Month
Similar to our Galactic Gift, draw or write about the Xero of the Month and earn some fabulous prizes! Click 'Show Details' for the rules.
He may look a little scary, but Sinker is a real sweetie when you get to know him! Having cataracts makes it a little tricky for him to see, resulting him in having a blank stare most the time (he’s just trying to focus his vision!) He’s a little stupid, but those who befriend him know he’ll try his best to make your day a little better. He enjoys marine life and bright lights/decorations, spending most of his free time staring off at a lava lamp or anything that interests him. (Note: the cloudy blue in his eyes are not optional!)
What is XOTM? Each month, a new Xero will be picked at random to receive a plethora of gifts from the community! Draw, write, or create some mixed media crafts for the featured Xero and win a Mysterious ORB and a chance for your Xero to be featured next month! See the above section to learn all about this month's featured Xero!
When submitting your entry for this prompt, please upload your piece to our XOTM Gallery here! Art & writing uploaded to the Project Xero gallery also earn 1 Prestige.
★ Don't have your own Xero? That's OK! You can still do the prompt. Before the raffle is rolled at the end of the month, any non-owners will be removed from the raffle and will receive a bonus of 10 Prestige instead!
★ NOTICE: If you have won Xero of the Month in the last 6 months, you may not win again until that time period is up. However, you will still receive extra rewards for participating in the prompt! Xeros that have won within that time as well may not be chosen, even if they have changed owners.
