The time is nigh, let a contest begin!
We all love Edward and Alphonse, it's a given. They're the primary focus of our series and we just can't get enough of the two brothers. But it takes a lot to have a well rounded set of main characters; like a great supporting cast! So in honor of the characters that helped to shape Ed n' Al into the guys we love, let's celebrate them!
The contest begins now and the ends the 18th of December, with a five entry minimum required by the 12th. This journal entry will be updated whenever anyone enters a new piece. To enter, upload your piece and either leave a link to it in the comments below or send me or the group a note with the link.
So to state it simply, feel free to create artwork of the Mustang Team, Father and the Seven Sins, Papa Hoho and Trisha, or even Winry and the Rush Valley team. Those are just some ideas you can roll with, whatever you create is up to you. Just ensure that Edward and Alphonse are NOT the primary focus of the piece. They can be in it, just not as the centerpiece.
The rules for this competition are simple:
1. No stolen artwork.
2. No yaoi. No yuri.
3. No genderbending.
4. No crossovers.
5. No copying of original artwork. (This includes screenshots.)
6. All entries must follow the rules listed on the group homepage.
7. All entries must be made for the contest and must be submitted after the contest announcement date.
8. Side characters must be the main focus of the piece, even if Edward or Alphonse are present.
Rules are subject to change.
We have three great artists who have volunteered to help out with prizes. Please support them by checking out their galleries!
The first place winner will have their choice of one of the three, as well as a year-long feature on the group homepage.
The second place winner will have their choice of the remaining two artists.
The third place winner will receive a prize from the remaining artist.
Good luck to everyone entering and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
