Attention all artists! In case you haven't noticed yet, the main Brawl in the Family page now has a Fan Works section for your enjoyment. Right now, it's a little empty, and I'd like for you guys to fill it!
So starting now, we'll be having an art competition once a month, every month. The winner will be immortalized in BitF history by having his or her art forever featured in the Fan Works section! But remember--we'll need a solid number of entries to work with, so if we don't get enough for the month, we might have to judge those entries with the next month's.
Now then, onto DA RULES:
-Any and all media is fine. Draw/scan, paint, do digital images, whatever! You can post big ol' wallpaper-sized images or even straight-up comics! The only limit is your imaaagination.
-Keep it pleasant. For content, a good rule of thumb is don't show or say anything in the art that you'd never find in a Nintendo-published game or a BitF strip. So keep it a light PG at worst, please.
-Post it here! You may email or PM us images if you'd like, but it's easiest if you just post your artwork here in this thread for judging. Deadlines will be 11:59 PM on the last day of the month in question.
Chris and I will be taking a good, long look at all the entries. Or a cursory glance as the case may be. They'll be judged on composition, adherence to the theme, use of color/shading (if applicable), use of humor (if applicable), and just...like, if it's any good.
Also, feel free to submit multiple entries, but you're limited to three per contest!
Now then, let's get onto the current contest--JUNE 2010! We'll kick off the first edition of the BitF Fan Art Contest (we originally wanted to call this the "BitFArt Contest", but decided against it) with something pretty simple and open to interpretation.
This month's theme:
Art must center around Kirby and King Dedede.
That's it! Just make a spiffy-looking work involving these two characters. They can be engaged in a battle of wits, a battle of strength, or a battle of friendship. Or whatever, your call. The deadline will be at the end of June, so get drawing!
