Hello fellow Kuroko no Basuke fans!
I know you have stacks of other journals and messages so I'll keep this short.
WE'RE RUNNING AN ART CONTEST!
YOU CAN WIN A COPY OF THE OFFICIAL CHARACTERS BIBLE (can ship anywhere in the world straight from Japan!)
What's the characters bible book?
It's a delicious 250 page book full of illustrations / characters info/ profiles / interviews / rankings / etc etc. Yeah yeah I know you can probably find scanned pages of it online. But WHO in their right mind refuses a freebie which you can touch and feel with your own hands and not destroy your eye sight trying to read stuff in your computer for hours! And also, there's a pull out poster -drool- which you can worship and ogle at your own time. Up to you. ^_~ kufufu--! You know you want it!!
So here's what you have to do...
Draw a character/s of your choice from Kuroko no Basuke. He/ she has to be either doing something related to his "HOBBY" or "SPECIAL SKILL" according to the characters book. (Reference of that below*)
Your entry has to be COLORED. (Digitally or Traditionally)
Lastly, let's make this a little Kuroko no Basuke-ESQUE. ....... TEAMWORK!!!
YOU CAN TO DO THIS WITH A PARTNER OR TEAM. Maximum of 5 people working on one entry. <- cuz basketball is a 5 man team y/y?
Anyone of your team mates can submit the final art piece, but make sure to include all the member's names and DA IDs in the artist comments.
I've also thought about this, at first I didn't want to allow SOLO artists, but considering there is only ONE book... Realistically, it would be very difficult to ask people to ONLY work in teams specially if you want to collab with some one who wants the book as badly as you. So YES, SOLO ARTISTS can join too.
But with all my heart, props to people who can work in pairs and more so teams. That's what sports and teamwork is all about after all! I can never stress this enough, DO YOUR BEST TO WORK IN TEAMS! In the spirit of all that is good, Friendship, Effort and Dreams!
This has to be a whole new submission specially made for this specific contest. We ask that you link back to this journal so people can know what contest it's for.
When I say team, you can either decide each person's task like Person.A did the sketch, Person.B did the line art, Person.C colored it etc. Or you can draw 3 characters each and put them in one setting. There's no limit to how many people you want to put in the picture, what's important is that you STICK TO THE THEME!
Take note that there is only ONE book to be won. Please decide with in your team who I should be sending it to when you guys have won.
MAKE NEW FRIENDS IN DA AND DON'T BE SHY TO PROPOSE A COLLAB! Get to know your fellow fans <3
