    ~The Official BitF Fan Art Contest 2-- July 2010 Edition~

    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.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    JUDGING CRITERIA

    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
    -Gooey Bomb
    -Turnabout Kirby
    -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!

    Does the poster have to reflect how the comic is?
    For example, if the comic is cheery, could we make it dark and scary?

    The early bird catches the Wumple.



    Rather fond of this one. Full screen please, just so you can see the little names at the bottom which I had fun with.

    And I hope I got your name right and you don't mind the nigh-on egotystical repetition. :P

    It's good, but I would of added some more colour rather than just colouring in Meta Knight and Dedede.
    I haven't started on mine yet, because Im waiting for TB to answer my question :P

    Nice poster, ThatFellowWithTheHat! Clever use of the theme and a good example of the sort of ideas I'd like to see for this month.

    Sure, that could be interesting and fun.

    but but being in Washington with family and with this annoying not belonging to me MacBook and no way to nab my tablet without flying back home without exhausting my arms is a predicament I can't seem to get over ; -;

    but I can guarantee whatever I turn out will be horrific and frightening just like last time

    *self centered post*
    this month's theme makes me wonder about next month's theme

    I can't wait for a theme that includes Tingle
    because we all know Tingle is handsome and desirable to all women and men alike

    For size, keep in mind that bigger is better in general (it's a lot easier to make something smaller than bigger). The size of the image I made in the first post (you can click it to get it full size) is a good guideline. Your image is a good size too.

    Kirby now has hair, there are more credits and a start day, and Waluigi managed to add his own grafiti.

    Would it be better to add more text, or is it just as good with just the image?

    Shouldn't the link in the Fanworks section direct to this rather than the June contest now?

    You could add more text, but what I would do is ad more colour, and choose a WAY less boring font :/

    Might as well post what I have so far.

    Obviously I still need to outline, color, and add text, but it's coming along.
    If I ever have some words of infinite wisdom, I'll be sure to tell you.
