A+ for effort?
You got my vote, niichan! Your dedication was well worth it.
niichan has made some MH enemies it seems~
YES! I'm so glad to see one submission (LOL) finally completed for the Breaker Fan Art contest! Amazing job by suarhnir! Thank you for taking the time and working on it! Super duper start! I hope we get at least one more submission in before the deadline! :S
Just one day left folks until this competition closes! Even if you don't have enough time to finish your piece, you might as well still submit it in! I hope Coffee decides to submit his piece in otherwise I'll be a very sad panda. D;
On another note..why are you guys making me look like the bad guy!? Bullies.
I was just messing around with niichan! Nothing serious~ He can take it!
I sorta made a custom made/coloring hybrid piece... considering with the deadline and the other coloring contest I woudln't have had anywhere close to enough time for me to learn and do good lines for the hair and face...(though I started the hair lines at the beginning)
What I did exactly? =
- Basic Color to head
- Large and small shadows to hair and face
- Lighting to hair
- Light accents to hair and face
- Rebuilt middle of eyes
- Colored eyes
- Rebuilt background - (sky, clouds, building)
- Rebuilt steam/smoke
- Added light source
- Added light accents to clouds
- Added a few gradient maps
- Added some ambient particles for extra feel
- Added some blood splatter - (You couldn't really see any in the original panel, but in the scenes before and afterwards he was splattering people all over the place was he not? So I feel like there should have been blood in that panel as well.)
Now I am just trying to decide if I want to turn it in now, or try to improve it more before turning it in

yay~ i'm glad you managed to get your entry submitted coffee! color is simply much better~
(you're from oregon? what part of oregon?)
LOL, you must have gotten that from my DA, I guess?
Over in the west coast~
mwahahahahaha~ hey, go to kumoricon next year! i live in the beaverton area~
and on your piece, the blood splatters made me realize I should have drawn that on my piece and its too late to make that fix now
ZOMG, also a great job, Coffee *-* (blue fan LOL)
Some ~Coffee~ Advice TIME!!!!~~~
1 - Don't schedule coloring contests along side other contests, (TWO COLORING CONTESTS AND A BANNER CONTEST????)
2 - Whoever picked that 'The Breaker' Panel for the contest, Change!!!!! (That panel wasn't very fun or easy or pleasing to the eye... you had the entire series to work with and there were plenty of awesome panels to use, even in that Volume alone.~)
/~Coffee~ Advice Time
Awesome entry, Coffee~ I'm so happy you submitted it!
Obviously, it's close to the end of the year and there's been a lot of changes to the art contests so making sure that the schedule (for the future) is more organized and sensible is our main priority. The last thing I want is throwing more pressure and random contests at the participants to give a go. The Christmas Banner contest was something that we had planned for a while and we couldn't delay it any longer tbh.
Choosing the right panel is very important and one that did come to my mind after we opened the Breaker contest. Thornz came up with the original idea of series-based contests and he tested the Breaker contest in the manwha section but for obvious reasons we agreed it would be best suited in the arts contest section. Like I said before it was an experiment and one that I'm happy we tried out. We'll definitely take a lot more into consideration before we introduce another series-based contest again. Thanks for your great feedback Coffee.
Spread the word people about MH's Art Contests! We need to get more smexy artists to showcase their talents around here and for more regulars to enjoy giving the creative side of MH a go!
If you are successful in luring some fine talent to this section then you'll definitely receive some love from the Bug. I deserve an early xmas gift.
