    BitF Community Art Contest - April 2012

    April is here, but this contest is no foolery. After a long dry-spell of contests, it's time to splash back into the water that is art, and draw some awesome pictures!
    Resident artist(and a quite talented one, at that!) Ame-Nami and I will be judging the entries, but I want to make it clear that this is not run or managed by Matthew or Chris, and is a fan-contest in honor of the previous ones.
    ~ As a note to the forum staff and Matthew, this contest is merely in lieu of the official contests, and is in no way an attempt to replace them.


    'Fore we get to the art, though, there are a few little things to go over called:

    THE RULES:
    • Make do with whatever you want! Digital, scanned, painted, pieced, paper mache; all forms of media are acceptable. If it's art, it's can enter.
    • Keep it clean. We all know BitF is a family comic, and like previous contests, keep it at a light-PG rating, at worst.
    • Originality! No art may be stolen or traced from others. Tracing or borrowing official Nintendo art/pictures/sprites isn't recommended, and your entry may be knocked down a few points because of it, but it is allowed.
    • Post or send 'em. The easiest way submissions can be... well, submitted is by posting them to this thread. However, they may also be sent to me via private message. Either way is acceptable.
    • Looming deadlines. All submissions must be posted or sent by April 30th, 11:59 PM, EST.
    • Aim for quality! Any number of submissions may be entered, but only one may win or place in the judging.


    Also, it's good to keep in mind that - as a fan contest - this is supposed to be just a healthy competition for fun. There are no rewards or prizes, besides the contest and judging itself.

    With all that out of the way, though, it's about time we get to the fun part:

    THE THEME:
    Tribute to Brawl in the Family.

    The web-comic we all know and love, and the reason why this board can even exist!
    Whether it be a simple comic in the BitF style, a group picture of key characters, or a homage to one of the story-arcs or musical numbers(Cocoon Academy, Ice World, etc.), it's time to show appreciation for all the great times Matthew's given us through the comic.

    As a few tips and pointers:
    Get creative! Submissions will be judged by adherence to the theme, composition, and general skill, but creativity is the key principle that'll help your piece.
    Get out there! Don't be afraid to share your entry early and get feedback. Having some constructive criticism may be the nudge that pushes your entry from great to fantastic.

    So get out there and start creating!

    This isn't about being "good enough," KirbyHugger8D, it's about having fun, and participating with the BITF community! Just do your best and keep a positive attitude; after all, this IS just for fun~

    I have something which I started working on the other week, as a homage to BitF. I was originally going to send it to Matthew, but I may post it in here as well. As for what it will incluse? Pokemon.

    Is this per participant? I kindof think there should be a limit to how many one can enter, but whatever works!

    I'm in this one for sure! I have been thinking about comic ideas for a while, so I have motivation and inspiration.

    Yep, it is. Might have worded that bit a little oddly, so in plainer terms: every single participant can post as many submissions as they want, but only one of each of theirs(the highest quality one of the bunch, as decided by the judges) will be picked for the judging phase.

    Great to see interest brewing already!

    I'll give it a go. Mind you, this is my first contest. I'm a little nervous, seeing as so many of you are million times better than I am...

    OK here it goes! This is my NON-ENTRY, it is merely a tribute to Brawl in the Family. I know, it isn't near perfect, but I spent a lot of time on it, AND I had fun doing it, and that's good enough for me!

    Here it goes...

    OK, so I didn't have time to digitally...amp this one up, so some of the words are hard to read (curse you scanner!!!)
    But, here's my OFFICIAL entry. It takes place soon after Cocoon Academy finishes. It's pretty cheesey, but I hope you find it funny.

    Spoiler: Page 12 

    It's kinda long, so just open one box at a time

    EDIT: I had an ending in mind for this comic that I debated about putting in, so I went ahead and did it (hopefully to tie up any loose ends!). Here's the "secret ending" Part 13!
