I think this is our most frequent suggestion, and I've planned this out for sometime but have honestly been to lazy to write out a whole journal xD
But here it is! ;D


Below this wall of text you will find an application to be a guest designer for a Pondpony or Fawnpond adopt! But please read the wall of text before filling one out so you know everything this entails!

What is a "guest designer"?
A guest designer is a member of the Pondpony group who, who is not an admin, that designs a Pondpony/Fawnpond for the community.

Rules
You must fill out the application and read all of this journal.
By filling out an application, you are put into consideration for being a guest designer for the group.
You are not guaranteed a guest designer spot when filling out an application.
You are not a "right holder" by being accepted for a guest design spot.
This could be a one time thing, or we could ask you back multiple times. That is 100% up to the admins and the group needs at the time.
You may be chosen to design a Pond for a raffle, advent, or anything else the admins might be planning.
Guest designing is on a case by case basis, so the rules given to you depends on the reason you are being asked to guest design.
You must follow the design parameters given to you by Cherri-Crimzon and Airi-draws-stuff 
Airi-draws-stuff and I can add and change rules as needed

Application

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - Designing is a lot of fun and doing designs for ponds are no exception. Being able to see somebody give love to something I create is amazing. Being more involved with the Pond community would be awesome, as just being a member sadly don't always gets you into the core of a group so getting to be more involved in the regards to designs would be awesome!
Have you read the whole journal? - Of course. Not doing so would end with missing plenty of details.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - I have been in love with this species since the first time I saw it, I have drawn some ponds before for commissions and actually it's really fun doing them. I keep coming back to this group with the hopes that someday i'll get the opportunity to either adopt one  or design one. To be honest this is such a rare species and it would be an incredible honor to be able to design one ;w; The amount of possibilities and the numerous combinations of things that one can do with this species inspire me a lot

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - I really love the designs that the admins create, and I think it would be interesting to have a taste at what they do and be able to put my love into a design that someone will be able to enjoy. Also, working with Scented-Ponies has given me an understanding of how much work it takes with a big group, and how much effort needs to be put in to create new things. To me overall, doing designs is rewarding, especially when you see the person harbor appreciation into the character, and that's why I think guest designing for pond-ponies would be a unique experience.

Honestly I love designing characters.  While I haven't been a part of the pond pony community all that much due to not really having the funds necessary to actually get one myself I find I'm still watching just from what the people running it have done and how the community is growing.  I'd love nothing more than to have a chance to take a shot at designing a pond pony myself, even if it's not something for myself to keep.  I want to be a guest designer for the challenge and the chance to show what I can do.

While pondponies hold a bit of a sour spot for me personally given certain circumstances in the past, I can't help but find myself coming back to them every now and again to admire the amazing designs that the artists put out for everyone and the amazing community that has rallied around both them and the fawnponds. I've come to find that I wanna partake in the community more, even if I can't afford a pondpony like other people can. Being able to design one would be just the way I could get my foot in the door maybe and finally get one for myself. That, and if not, at least I'd be able to contribute in the way of my adding a design for someone else to love in my stead.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? -
As a result of seeing everyone else's wonderful and varied designs in the Pondpony community, I've also been really inspired and I have quite a few Pondpony/Fawnpond designs floating around in my head that I'd love a chance to bring to life. Unfortunately although I love the creative process of designing, I've found that I can't keep more than ~10 OCs at a time, otherwise I don't put the love and care into maintaining them that I think they deserve. That's why I usually prefer to design characters and give other people who can enjoy them more a chance to adopt them.

As for why I want to design a Pondpony or Fawnpond specifically instead of other CS, I
a) Really, really like water, and find drawing all the water features in ponds to be super fun.
b) Like how the different types of Pondponies and Fawnponds give some inspiration and structure for picking themes, etc. for the design. I find working in an environment that offers design freedom but some guidelines at the same time to be really enjoyable.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - To be honest I love this group and would love to be a guest designer. Its been a dream of mine and in a sense it feels like I'd be giving back to the community in a way. I've made lots of friends because of this group and would love to help it thrive and grow even more. I have lots of ideas for designs that I've been dying to do. :3 I love designing them.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - I'm pretty sure Pondponies was the first closed species I was really truly invested in and I still adore the concept today! There's something really pleasing about designing Pondponies, be it my own or for others, and I'd love the opportunity to do so again!

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - I love the pondpony concept and I want to see my ideas for designs come alive... in a sense. I've been wanting a pondpony since about 2/3rds through the year they were founded and were the first closed species I knew about. I love to see when a new design comes out, not to buy but just to see the design.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - Ponds were my first closed species I was ever interested in. It was what motivated me to learn how to draw ponies. Honestly, it really jump started a whole different type of art for me. I started polishing things more, putting more work into what I did, I started adding backgrounds to what I did. Basically, this community has been a really big part of my growth even though I've always been a silent member. I want to give back to it by creating some great designs for people that I know will enjoy them.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - I LOVE the Pondpony species as a whole, and I'm grateful for the kindness shown to me. And what better way to give back then to create some designs? I've always wanted to be a guest designer for any species in general.

Why i wanna be a guest designer- I want to help fill up a hole that is pretty empty. People here who want one can get one cheaply from me as i can only accept points, and i don't crave a huge amount of them. if i was to design a raffle pondpony, i would take the time and see which traits people would want in a pond pony ( to the limit im allowed ) to fill what people would like to see in pondpony designs. I may not have a pondpony design, but i would really love to try and design one, for others to enjoy.

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - It's one of those dreams to design a species you find beautiful. I always found pondponies and fawnponies very stunning and the chance to design one would be thrilling! It's not everyday you get to make a design for a group like this. That and I love to design! ^-^

Why do you want to be a guest designer? - Creating characters is one of the funnest things for me, especially when I find a good theme and get a nice art groove going. And though I haven't been in the Pondponies group for long, they have grown on me. The ideas for them are limitless and I don't know how many designs I have thought of. ( All the ideas and themes I'm thinking of now are building back up again XD ) And if I was chosen as a guest designer, I would make sure to bring out the chosen theme to it's fullest while still making sure it's something many could enjoy.
