Re: Art Contest Theme Suggestion Thread

Pirate theme xD
I don't think we had a pirate theme in a while or if at all, which category do you suggest for it?

Re: Art Contest Theme Suggestion Thread

Great idea, Charles! Thanks for making the thread.


I believe this is a good way to encourage those that aren't really interested in some of the more recent themes chosen for certain contests to let us know what would interest them. Moreover, this gives us the chance to understand what kind of themes members like a lot so we can work with it.

Everyone is most welcome to suggest ideas/themes for the art contests. If a theme you really liked in the past has been used and/or you missed out on participating that time, don't worry you can always ask in here about that said theme and we'll see if it's possible to re-use them at the appropiate times. If not we can always work around an old theme (if it becomes really popular and in demand) that's been used and recycle it so that we can cover more ground.

I've created a list in the opening post so we can keep record of the ideas/themes suggested over time! So keep them coming folks~!

Maybe a meme themed art contest? There are ones where you draw the same topic with different styles/expression/etc. We can find some in Deviantart or even make one ourselves.
The medium used can depend on the contestant.

ZOMG
This place is so lively again!

Ty for the suggestions, Infinite! Some of them are awesome o.o I love the Meme and OCs ones xD
Tomorrow we'll use a holiday theme, but after that, we can pick one of the suggestions here to use^^ Those two I mentioned above are very creative, and I believe that people would have a good time with it, as long as we don't make it too complicated. I'll ask others to come here and discuss them a bit with us, so we can decide the best one for everybody^^

Btw, Jin, great job with the list thing! xD

Oyos

What about a yon-koma? Also, a crafting one - something artsy but not 2d like clay, knitting, cosplay, etc.

Re: Art Contest Theme Suggestion Thread

Yon-koma is a great theme for a literature category, imo. Thanks for the awesome suggestion!

But the second part seems like really... challenging xD
We could bring that to the discussion thread and see what the others feel about it, though^^ If people agree it's not that hard and would take part, I'd support it!

Sound interesting.If it is something like making a card or scrapbooking,it shouldn't be too hard.(It is something I'm at least capable of.XD)

Re: Art Contest Theme Suggestion Thread

A yonkoma is basically a 4 panel comic strip typically used in gag manga.

Re: Art Contest Theme Suggestion Thread

It's probably been said before, but how about a handmade contest?

Haha maybe hold a separate contest for meme making and use the winner's meme for another contest. It may be hard to find meme suitable for everyone so might as well get the majority votes.
