Monthly Illustration Contest: Lullaby

Fanart
Hi and hello! Welcome to another round of the Monthly Illustration Contest!


Every month, I’ll post a piece of writing relating to the Mother-series written by someone on the Starmen.Net community. Your job is to take something from it and illustrate it! Then, post it in this topic! Remember, your drawing doesn't have to cover the entirety of the story!

The winner will receive a copy of the illustration badge, which looks like this: and will have their illustrations posted to the front page and our social media!

There's a few rules:

  • You can draw more than one image, but it's not required.
  • Keep it family-friendly. Don’t draw anything you wouldn’t want to show to your grandmother.
  • You can participate if your fanfic is used
  • Keep it relevant to the story. Your illustration needs to relate to the fanfiction that you’re illustrating, so if the fanfiction is about Mother 3, you can't simply just draw Lucas. It has to be unique to the piece itself.
  • Authors picked can submit a picture regardless whether it is your fanfiction or not


  • The last chosen fanfiction was LadyTe’'s Once Upon a Time.




    And the winner is: Dershka!



    Congratulations! This really was a fabulous piece!

    February's fanfiction in question is StarstorMew's Plenty of Water.
    Your contest entry should be submitted to this thread by 11:59 PM PST on February 14th.

    If you have a fanfiction to nominate, please send me a PM!

    Ask here or through PM if you have questions or concerns!
    Let me see those beautiful drawings!

    Artist Feature - Manga is Literature Too!

    Fanfiction

    How is your week going? Well, I sure hope I can brighten it up a bit with another...



    Artist Feature!

    In case you missed it before, here's the idea. Starmen.net has many incredible artists frequenting the site, of all mediums! Writing, drawing, music, there are just so many things our members are good at! I have seen people improve so vastly over the years and a number of members who were once here have grown to be successful in their fields. Really, it's an amazing sight to see.

    So I wanted to find a way to showcase many of the talented individuals that you may know and TragicManner's Fangame Highlight gave me an idea. While it is a bit similar to Artist's Spotlight, I want to take it one more step and actually get to know the artists who make up the forum.

    Every month, I'll feature one of the many talented individuals you may have seen around the site; this is not just limited to compart or handart, rather, we could feature an author, musician, etc. I'll also feature some of their work as well as an interview with the artist.

    If you'd like to nominate someone, send me, CerealQueen, a PM!


    This month's feature is: Tsuri!


    To see the interview with Tsuri, check after the jump!

    Greetings and happy Saturday! I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and I hope to make it even better with another edition of Artist's Spotlight!

    This month's winner is PSIduck7!

Whether it be scenic, monsters, people, PSIduck7 manages not only to make a beautiful picture, but also is able to make a story. This little award has been a long time coming and I am glad to award it today.





    I am so very proud to award PSIduck7 this badge. Please keep submitting! It is always such a treat to see what you'll post next!
