    BitF Fan Art WINNER and RUNNERS-UP! **December 2010**

    Our December art contest has brought us a great haul of quality entries. To everyone who participated: thanks for your hard work! December's theme was A Very Brawl in the Family Christmas, so let's see what our favorite characters were up to during the holidays! (Entries are listed in alphabetical order.)

    Ame-Nami's entry



    Tim-ber! This is one crew you don't want decorating your Christmas tree. High jinks are sure to ensue when these characters get into any situation together, much less one involving a giant, teetering tree. The details in this piece make each character a treat to examine, and we love the feeling of movement that the art so deftly portrays.

    Clandy's entry



    The cuteness and simplicity of Clandy's piece quickly won the hearts of this contest's crusty old judges. Here, Dedede begrudgingly raises Kirby to the top of the tree in a delightful illustration of the complex relationship between the two. Even though Dedede looks displeased with the situation, he's resigned to his duty as he's captured in a photograph to remember the event. This allows the reader to imagine the cozy gathering of friends that is surely taking place here, full of awkward moments as Dedede tries to decide whether he wants to be there or not. Just darling!

    GigaNerd17's entry



    Daisy rather enjoys being wooed by Waluigi, who looks much more handsome here than usual. This is probably because through the eyes of love, everyone looks beautiful! The budding romance would surely create some friction with Luigi, but he's not here now, is he? A very endearing entry.

    ice cream soup's entry




    Have you ever been putting the finishing touches on an angry-looking snowman when suddenly a pink blob knocks off the snowman's head and eats his nose? If so, you can probably imagine Dedede's irritation at this moment. He's probably kicking himself for using such a yummy ingredient for his snowman's nose. We really liked Meta Knight's winter outfit and the sheer, oblivious joy on Kirby's face.

    miss_anthy's entry



    Kirby gets caught red-handed by the big man himself. The innocence of Kirby is adorable, and the watercolor-looking visuals create a warm atmosphere. This entry is another great example of how a charmingly simple composition can be very effective.

    Platypus18's entry



    Oh, no! The look on Kirby's face is heartbreaking, and Dedede doesn't look like he regrets a thing. What a lout! The peculiar textures in this piece give it a unique feel that brings together the slightly warped look of the objects here. We liked the photos on Kirby's mantle and the giant bag of Kirby's Toys that Dedede apparently stole from Kirby's house.

    ShakerSilver's entry



    This gathering of brawlers is just packed with unfolding conflict! Dededoo and Dedede both get new tools to use in their respective pursuits, Mario seems to have received a "blast" of a present from his good friend Bowser, Snake's Samus-wooing is about to get him another Falcon Punch in the face, and a giant, hat-wearing moon is about to smash into the planet, among other things. The charming art and cavalcade of funny situations make this a very special entry.

    spacepig22's entry



    Being possibly the most terrifying mall-Santa ever, Waluigi would probably make good money from any photographer who wants to take pictures of screaming children. Poor Kirby wants this moment to be over as soon as possible. This image would make a great Christmas card, though anyone you sent it to would probably think you were kind of nutty.

    Spazboy225's entries



    We didn't think we could just choose one of Spazboy225's entries to nominate, so here they both are! In the first, we've got a heartwarming gathering unfolding, with everyone getting along for a change (more or less). The warm shading and attention to detail are expertly done, with a lot of great little character interactions going on and some solid compositional work. Matthew even appears in this one, which he found quite amusing. Also appearing are Snake's chiseled buns, which have become something like Spazboy225's signature touch. The well-crafted art shows everyone at their best, and the love in the room is palpable.



    Spazboy225 apparently didn't think that Snake's muscular gleuts were featured prominently enough in his other entry, so he fills his derriere quota with this depiction of Snake sneaking butt-first down a chimney. I wonder if this is how Santa does it?

    T-3000's entry



    This peculiar entry features several brawlers performing a nativity play together. We really enjoyed the casting decisions the director made: Kirby as baby Jesus, Samus as Mary, Captain Falcon as Joseph, and... Waluigi as an angel? It looks as though Waluigi barely knows where he is at the moment, which is supported by his apparent lack of undergarments. Great expressions make this a fun entry.

    As usual, it was tough to come up with a winner, but the following entry really stuffed our stockings!

    The winner is...

    Ame-Nami's entry!



    The feeling of movement in this piece made it really special to us - you can almost feel the tree falling towards you, with Dedede and friends tumbling down into a heap. Each character is drawn with loving care and lots of charm, and the coloring provides great texture to the piece. Ame-Nami just nailed it!

    We greatly appreciate every submission you guys give us, so please keep up the amazing work! Our January 2011 contest is already underway, and we can't wait to see your ideas. See ya there!

    You deserved the victory, Ame-Nami! That was (sorry to other contestants, no offense meant) the best of the artwork I saw!

    Way to go, Ame-Nami!
    and everyone else too! ^-^

    Your drawing is incredible, I would have been surprised if you didn't win.
    I beat KH2 with 11 different Handicaps! Kingdom Hearts RULES! <3

    I beat the 1000 Heartless Battle without Reaction Commands, in Proud Mode, at lvl. 36-38, Kingdom Keyblade only, no Armor, only 3 potions and 2 eithers, and a bunch of other handicaps. It means a lot to me that I did that. :3

    I knew who'd win as soon as I saw it.

    Santa Snake would be good at the level of stealth needed for the job.

    Too bad nobody thought to have Lucario sensing the inside of a gift box.

    Darn! I don't know what to say!
    I'm quite frankly overwhelmed by the praise all of you are giving me! Although from the look of things, it seems I've also gained a few rivals....

    JK! I honestly have to thank everyone for your kind comments and I wish anyone participating good luck in the next contest
