    ~The Official BitF Fan Art Contest 5 -- October 2010 Edition!~

    Salutations, artists! Since June, the Fan Works section of the site has gradually been updated with quality art from you BitFers, and that's swell as heck. But it's still a little low on art, so I'm relying on you guys to help fill it!

    Once a month, every month, we hold a Brawl in the Family Fan Art Contest. 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. (this hasn't happened yet, thankfully, but it's always good to cover our tracks)

    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

    As always, Chris and I (Matthew, resident doodler of BitF) will be taking a look at the entries and racking our brains trying to narrow them down to just a handful. 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.

    Update on judging criterion: we've noticed while judging these that we have a tendency to prefer works that feel more specifically BitF than rather Nintendo as a whole. In other words, the better you can represent the strip and characters itself, the better your chances of winning!

    Also, feel free to submit multiple entries, but you're limited to three per contest! If you want to submit more than that, you'll have to pick which three you'd like us to judge. There's no limit to how many contests you can win or be nominated for, so keep the great stuff coming!

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

    Now then, let's get onto the current contest--OCTOBER 2010! Last month's theme gave us a look at what happens when Kirby and crew mix with the friendly worlds of Disney, so this time, I'm afraid we're gonna have to delve into a darker place...

    This month's theme:
    Halloween & Horror


    Yes, dear readers, that day of fright and mayhem is fast approaching, and there's nothing we can do to stop it. So we might as well get BitF in on the action. The Halloween & Horror theme is pretty broad and we'll allow anything that's got ties to the spooky and eerie. Here are some examples:

    -Trick or treating/costumes
    -Horror monsters (zombies, vampires, witches, demons, etc)
    -Horror films
    -Nightmares
    -Supernatural events/ghosts

    With this in mind though, I do feel that I should set a bit of a guideline here. Since the comic doesn't really go past PG stuff, let's keep the entries free of really ghastly material like a lot of gore and whatnot. I think most of you should know what might be crossing a line or not, but feel free to PM me if you have specific questions about your entry. Anything similar to what you'd see in the comic is fine, though, like the Zombie strips.


    So get to it, you little ghouls! Whip up something eerie and keep an eye on this thread--it's sure to be a scream come October 31st...

    Called it.

    Anyways, I've no ideas as of yet (which is normal), but I have a feeling that Waluigi will be in everyone's. I mean, it's HORROR after all!

    yes, yes you did. Although the entry i'm thinking of actually doesn't include waluigi (although it's not my original idea). I'll give you a hint: not quite , but it sort of is, in a way.
    Just expect it to be absolutely hilarious.

    Note to Spazboy225: No matter how you squeeze in Snake's butt, it will STILL be horrifying. Can't wait to see it!

    Waluigi is so overused anyway

    expected/10 theme, but I sure hope that for the next few months we don't end up with the whole "holiday" sort of theme thing going... I might just have something to enter into this contest, since drawing things in horrifically creepy ways is my forte after all

    Ok, I'll try to get this one done.

    Also, dibs on Thriller themed entry.

    EDIT: By the way, would crotch grabbing too inappropriate?

    Shaker Silver: I wouldn't say that crotch grabbing is too innapropriate since it was MJ's signature dance move, but its actually not a dance move in thriller as far as i know. Thriller is more famous for the stiff armed sideways walk thing.

    I'm with you on this one. Yeah, I know, I used Waluigi in my entry last month too but by the end of September it just seemed like he was showing up everywhere.

    Don't know if I'll be entering the next few contests. It depends on if I can get a portable scanner. It's time for me to go back to work and my contracts take me out of town for six months. It's been fun hanging with you guys, though, and even if I don't get a chance to submit I'll be checking in to see everyone's awesome entries!
    "Why do we call him 'Waluigi' anyway? Wario is 'Wario' because a 'W' is an upside-down 'M' and it's a pun on Mario. There is no upside-down 'L', so there is no pun. It should be something like 'Luigi--Schmoo-igi.' I vote we call him 'Schmoo-igi' from here on out."

    You want Horror? Well, here's a Sneak Peek of MY idea for THIS month.




    I got the chills while making this.
    Hey, It's Halloween and Horror, you gotta get blood in there somehow!

    When I saw this contest, I just had to rejoin the forums. The following image is NOT an entry, in case I later decide to have multiple entries, but it is related to the theme in that it captures Halloween in Ghost Kirby, and horror in what is felt by Kirby. I really hope someone gets this...




    My real entry has been started, and it features ghost Kirby as well as the (second) most horrific creature to emerge from BitF!!!

    see, you can draw Darkrai all by yourself, you don't need to request it from me.

    I love the Waluigi strips, but I hope we don't see too much of him with this theme. :P Anyway, I hope I can get something in for this entry. I don't have too much in my "gallery" in the ways of spookiness/halloweeny sorta stuff. Good luck guys. :D
