...I actually kinda forgot about this in all the NovArt stuff, but here we go!
Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot to say.
The only entry, and therefore, the winner of the fan art contest, is CapedLuigisYoshi, with this entry right here:
It's unfortunate that this was the only entry, although I am glad it was something good at least. xD
So this means that what's happening in this drawing will happen in a future page! And I think I've worked out where already too, so there's that.
CLY, sorry you won on what's kind of a technicality. That's just the way it is though. Probably my fault for doing a contest this early into the comic's run. I'll wait a bit longer before another one happens.
I've decided to finally do a fan art contest! I never did one for Re:Booted, so I'm glad to finally be doing this.
-Obviously, you're going to be drawing, so no sprite stuff or bases or something. Pixel art is fine, but as long as it's 100% made by you.
-No stealing art from others. You will be disqualified if you're caught doing this.
-No bases. Your art's gotta be 100% made by you.
-You can do traditional or digital, I do not have a preference and will not favor one over the other. I'll be judging (partially) based on the quality of the art itself, not the medium in which it was drawn.
-No NSFW content. I don't even want to think about NSFW stuff for this comic, and I certainly don't want to see it.
-Keep your art on-topic. I'll be specifying what theme you should be drawing for, so don't stray from that.
-And of course, be creative!
Now, as for what I want to see from y'all's art, I've decided on the following theme:
Draw something you would like to see happen in the future of the comic.
Now, to explain this theme, I'll need to explain the prize.
The winning entry will receive a scene in the comic based off their art (full credit for the idea given, of course).
Now, for one additional rule because of this information:
-Nothing too crazy.
Obviously, if I'm making what you draw actually happen in the comic, it can't be like, "Mario comes back" or something. Keep it something reasonable that you think could totally happen in the universe I've set up thus far.
As for judging, I'll be judging each piece of art individually based on two things:
1. Quality of art.
2. Creativity in idea
So, if you're not the greatest artist ever, but you have an awesome idea, you still totally have a chance of winning! The idea really is going to be the main focus here, so while the art will be important, the idea is the really important part.
Also, it's worth mentioning that speech bubbles and even multiple panels are accepted if you can't convey your idea in just one piece of art with no talking.
As for how to enter, you can do so in two ways.
1. Send me, Luigi_96, a PM on Smack Jeeves. You should do this if you're a member here.
2. Send me an email at nashewninesix(at)gmail(dot)com, with the subject line being "RE:KIRBY FAN ART CONTEST". You should do this if you're not a member here.
I'll have a comment below this post showing who's entered so far, so if you entered, but don't see your name, let me know in the comments and I'll double-check both of my inboxes.
The deadline for this contest is October 1st, 2015, so I'm giving you all plenty of time here.
The results will be posted sometime around a week later. I'll give more specific details when the contest is over.
EDIT SEPTEMBER 30th 2015: The deadline has been extended until November 1st as there were zero entries.
And with that, I think we're done! Have any questions? Let me know in the comments below, and I will happily answer them!
Upates for Re:Kirby will be returning on Friday, June 26th! Get hype!!
