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 we've decided to feature 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.
-It should be original! Mash-ups and borrowed Nintendo art (including sprites) probably won't win you any awards. It's possible someone might do something extremely creative by using official art, but for the most part it'd be best to avoid this.
-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--JULY 2010! After the Dedede/Kirby simplicity of the June contest, it's time to flex those creative muscles!
This month's theme:
Make a "movie poster"-style image for one of the BitF story arcs!
The following stories are all game:
-How the King Stole Christmas
-Zombie Apocalypse (technically more of a two-parter, but why not?)
-A Mushroom Kingdom Carol
-Snake in the Grass
Here's a quick example I whipped up, no color or final outlines or anything:
Hopefully that'll get your creative juices flowing! Make something eye-catching and exciting! Again, any of the story arcs are fair game. The deadline will be at the end of July, so get drawing!
