      Event Ideas and Thoughts

      @Marjorie Haukea Williams
      @theblackmist

      What I want t do is something small, but fun that can incorporate art and writing in case someone wants to do one or both. Don't wanna start big until we can get our feet wet and the section back up and running. Anyone got any ideas for something small outside the example of a bigger one.




      This would probably be somewhere around the 20th of April since its a little bigger.

      Re: Event Ideas and Thoughts

      I wanted to start a networking thread and such, that includes networking meetups where the events are hosted live online for those who cannot attend (so people can have a chance to work together on projects so they afford to go to the meetups/ get a job). I was hoping to talk to Mike about this and live viewing events online in general because of the meetups that already happen.

      How about a competition where you have to do the best Solo a star wars story crossover fan art.

      For example somebody could draw the Han Solo poster but have all the characters from another show/movie. Like adventure time characters but dressed as Han Solo and chewie etc.

      Not sure if that sounds stupid haha.

      So kinda like a star wars story parody poster competition.

      Re: Event Ideas and Thoughts

      @Sdbillustrations @woostersauce

      Welcome woostersauce

      Alright so got some more idea since we already do something with art let's start doing something with writing. There's a bunch of awards so we need to come up with some type of plan and how


      Poetry of the Month
      Short Story of the Month

      Also in advanced we should do one huge event sometime in July and I am open to options so don't be scared to post anything I'm pretty open. THe more new fresh ideas the better I'm we could do something with photography, anything basically.

      Re: Event Ideas and Thoughts

      @PharaohAtem - I'll have a think but maybe we could something for those that have a passion for writing fan fiction. Would a fan fiction of the month be a good idea?

      I'll update with any more ideas i have.

      Re: Event Ideas and Thoughts

      Poem of the Month/ SS of the month used to work I recall. Perhaps Poem or Prose of the Month. Prose gives the option of several written styles if people wanted?

      Alternating I guess is a given, but alternate between primarily art based and word based. Generally speaking the non-focused option can still take part, since a lot of the stuff is themed which allows both art and writing to use same prompts.

      The challenge with writing options is specifics can alienate people who don't normally/ haven't written in the genre before. I.e I've dabbled in poetry and prose (short story/ novella) but never tried script writing, which makes that daunting. But then again specifics may draw in people who otherwise wouldn't make an attempt if it's compared to different styles?



      July event: perhaps instead of a specific prompt, make a more open thing. Say, for writing, entrants find an image and write a poem/Short Story/ Song lyrics/etc based on the image. For Art/Gfx, entrants find a short story/poem and need to submit a drawing/do something with gfx to sum up/ relate to the piece they chose for it? So basically instead of the normal select prompt(s), entrants pick their prompt, and post/link to their 'prompt'?

      Re: Event Ideas and Thoughts

      This is going to sound like mental idea for the july challenge but hear me out

      Upside down art challenge
      Although drawing upside might sound really daft its actually a great exercise for tapping into your creative side and focus on the shapes and curves since images upside look very different.

      Here is an example of an image i drew upside down:

      Attachment 51622

      Then right side up.

      Attachment 51623

      Other ideas:
      -character creation challenge - drawing up, dressing up then taking a photo or writing for a character you have created
      -anime league 3 panel comic strip challenge - draw a newpaper comic strip inspired comic strip
