    Yes...I've finally gotten off my lazy butt and decided to start this up again. It has nothing to do with the fact that I'm at work and I have nothing else to do...Nope...Not at all...Sorry that we kind of entirely skipped May. :laugh

    Anyway. This month's theme is going to be...

    Bleach in History

    I figured I'd get this theme out of the way since people seem really for it. Thank you for the suggestion, Zaru. ^_^

    ----

    Here's Zaru's original idea:
    ----

    Rules

    Not too many for this one, but there are a few stipulations.

    1) Please be historically accurate. Do some research about the time period you want to use, the kind of clothing people wore, etc. It's no good if you just dump, say, 19th century fashion from Japan into 18th century France.

    2) Please write a description of your drawing. It doesn't have to be a lengthy one, just enough so that we know where and when your chosen setting is. ^_^

    You can use one or more characters for this competition, and it's fine with me if you choose to do something like replace an actual historical figure with a Bleach person (like putting Ichigo and Orihime in place of Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette or something like that). You don't have to have a background setting, but you can if you like. It might be more fun if you do, but it's up to you. :)

    ** Update ** Closing Date: June 30, 2007

    Other than that, just remember that you need to draw the art, no copying or tracing. You can, of course, use reference, and in the cases of making a character into a historical figure of course you can copy an outfit.

    Yell at me if I missed anything.

    Good luck to everybody! I'm hoping to see some interesting things from this. ^_^

    ----

    Oh, my idea is used? Nice.

    I'll be off looking for a suitable scene, then

    Yup. It's a good idea. Plus I was tired of people saying that it was a good idea in the idea thread. ^_^

    I think I have a plan for mine. XD

    I'm glad (and hardly surprised) you picked this one :amuse

    Only problem is I now have far too many ideas I want to use.. should be fun testing things out and picking one to use anyway.

    One question, what counts as "history"? Does it need to be far back or does something from last century count?

    Hmm...Good point.

    Let's say that the latest era you can choose from is the 1920's. So 1929 is the latest year you can swipe your fashion from. : p

    Pah! I had some ideas brewing involving a Schutzstaffel uniformed Grimmy and another with a Vietnam Zaraki.

    You're the boss though (I'm going to regret saying that, right?) so it's up to you. I've got other ideas so I don't mind too much.

    It doesn't look like it was ever posted. NF's been playing stupid games with everybody, so it's entirely possible that that's what happened. Sorry 'bout that. :/

    Yes...Tom and I decided to set that as the cut-off to avoid any Hitler sort of things. That's a little predictable anyway.

    Just try harder, dear. :p

    That's right. I am the the boss. Well. Me and Tom.

    But yes. I think you are going to regret saying that, sweetheart. It's okay though. Because I won't use it to my advantage.

    At least not too much.

    *tries to grin innocently*

    Heh, well I have to admit that that's a direction I didn't expect this to take.

    It's a cool entry though. XD

    And perhaps, now with the ice broken we'll get a few more entries trickling in.

    Buh? Where's it say that?

    You just can't trace over something else. You can use reference to draw with vectors...But tracing kind defeats the point of a fanart contest.

    I'll never get it done to June 23! Can't you postphone it another week?
    To... June 30 or July 1st? I'm going to draw Yoruichi and Soifon in ancient Egypt and I've just started to ink it and it has lots of details, so I need more time to color it :cry Please?

    I spent too much time with finding the right dress to Yoruichi, fastforwarding "The Mummy 2" and copying the bodypaint (damn, Egyptians use ALOT of bodypaint) X.X And it's just 3 days to the competition closes and there's only one who've submitted, right?

    More time, more time :cry Then maybe more submissions will come!

    This needs to be stickied, that's the kind of awesome it is.

    If I ever finished my current Naruto piece, I'll try and do one for this.

    Everyone seems to have forgotten that this thread exists and that the competition closes tomorrow night (I've decided on midnight EST...unless I'm not home, and then it'll be a couple hours longer, lol).
