A drawing idea: make a classic movie-style poster promoting an anime or manga (something like this)

An idea from mois:

Take 7 unique pictures (within the given time period) of location/things that represent the city/area you live in.
It's a nice little quarantine activity, it'll give people a reason to go out and take pictures without putting themselves at risk.

Here's an idea from me:

The theme is a certain time period in history. Whether it's Victorian England, Edo Japan, or the classical Wild West. From there pick a world monument past or present and transform it to look like it was made during the said time period.

So an example would be taking something like the pyramids or Taj Mahal and transforming them to fit the theme of Edo Japan or Western USA.

What about designing a set of cards?

Every since I was watching the One piece anime a couple weeks ago the Dressrosa commanders gave me the idea. So you would do the head pieces Jack, Queen, King and Ace in each of the four colours and the back of the card deck obviously to tie it all together.

- writing freestyle (poem/short story/tongue twister/letter)
- "best friend" freestyle (can be used for valentine or any seasonal contest). create any artwork (be it visual arts or writing or any other form) dedicated to your most beloved MH one. prove it that they are not alone and you are always there for them

my suggestion for the upcoming spring contest :3



the 3 leaderboard artists of last year should brainstorm their idea in their own private chat for the category/theme, as unique, fresh as possible, then it will be revealed when the art mods create the thread. surpriseee~

basically a challenge..

but those 3 can still join the contest tho~

Not sure if it has been done already, but for drawing contest the pixel art. Or it could just be a "category" and have a theme like Pixel Art - Rebirth for example.

Also if animation category ever makes on come-back, Sprite Animation or Pixel Art would be a fun theme. Though I'm not sure if any regular other than me has ever done anything like that.

Mmh, what about an anime villains theme? We could use this for most categories, such as set making and drawing/colouring

Since the Olympic is approaching soon, why don’t we make that a theme?

Maybe to extend that idea, why don’t we form team like previous contest (one for drawing, writing, etc)? Then people can vote for their favorite drawing, writing, etc individually? First place would get gold; second, silver; third, bronze except it will be points (gold will get 3 pts, silver gets 2 while bronze get 1). After the voting is over, we can total the scores to get the overall winner.

For example, Team #1 got gold for drawing and bronze for writing, but got 0 points for banner set (or whatever); therefore they got 4 points.

I hope that makes sense. :sweatbunny
