[EDIT 4] CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED ! Thank you all ! Winners will be choosed soon ! :) Be ready ! :D

[EDIT 3] You can sure make more than 1 Zanshi, and you can sure win the 2 or 3 Zanshi you made ! The more you draw your Zanshi, the more you have a chance to win it, even if I don't really like the color of design ! ^^ I also judge on your determination to have a zanshi ^^

[EDIT 2] I made a quick anatomy guide for people who wanna enter, go check it here ! 

Zanshi anatomy guide ! by SMASH-ii

[EDIT] Soooo, I thought about power ability of the Zanshis and I realized that nobody know ho does they works so I will describe you the different powers :)

Fire/Water/Earth/Air/Thunder/Ice : Those are elementary powers, Zanshi are able to control it, and create it (for exemple, a fire Zanshi is able to start a bonefire and to play with the flames, transform his arm into a big fire tornado etc)
Metal : It's an arm linked power, Zanshi are able to transform their body into weapons (arms like blades etc) and have their skin as hard as metal
Fight : Zanshi who have Fight power are experts in martial arts, they also can transform their self into animals
Life : Zanshi who have Life power are specialists in healing and can summon celestial creatures
Death : Zanshi who have Death power are the opposite of Life Zanshi : they are specialist in curses and can summon hell's creatures 
Acid : An Acid Zanshi is a specialist in poison and potions
Shadow : And finaly, A Shadow Zanshi can control darkness and shadow, he's like a ninja

Hey guyyys ! :D
Some day ago, I thought about my Zanshis and my watchers, and then I realized that not a lot of people can afford one ! So, since I'm in a good mood, IT'S CONTEST TIIIME ! :D
Here we go ^^


I know that my Zanshi are a bit expensive, and sometimes it's hard to get one ! 
So I'm gonna give you a chance to own your Zanshi ! ^^

-Advertise this contest in a journal, spread it around the worl ! :P I would like a lot of people ! PLEASE guys, it's really important
-Leave me a link of your entry(ies) and journal in a COMMENT only
-All entries will be added to my fav's forlder "Design a Zanshi contest 2014"

Hey Smash-ii I see your contest has ended. Can't wait :D
I never got this entry to you cause I typed in the wrong smashii username in the comments.
It was uploaded on the 23rd of March (before the deadline) so Ihope that it can still be included in judging.… Vlads feral form. (:
