FotW: No Crying Until the End


Let's begin the weekend with another round of Fanart of the Week!

Today's Fanart of the Week winner is SkyMaro with his fantastic drawing of the Mother cast!

For some time now, SkyMaro has been redrawing the cover to his comic book adaptation of the original Mother game, about once every to years or so since 2008. Every year, it's improved quite drastically and I am impressed. I especially love how the characters wear a somber, but determined expression.
Congratulations, SkyMaro! Enjoy your deserved badge and I do hope your consider posting your future work on the forums, especially the revised cover 2 years from now!

Remember to submit your Mother-related fanart/music for the chance to see your work featured!

Project Ultimate Chimera: We're Still Chompin' Away

Hello people of Starmen.Net!
I wanted to post an update and let you all know about Project Ultimate Chimera (PUC).

In case you didn't know, PUC is devoted to filling the empty pages of the game sections on the main site. This includes not only the Mother series, but the Smash games as well. We want to offer all as much and as detailed info as possible and that's exactly what this project is for.

It's been a long process and we're certainly not done yet, but we've made quite a bit progress. The finished tasks have been cut down, a few more available tasks have been added, and if we're able to check off a bit more on the Mother games, I'll be opening the project all all Smash games.

Not only will participating help the site, but you can earn a badge, rank, and even an avatar! Full details on rewards and jobs can be found on the PUC board.

Also, I want to take this time to acknowledge Ostricho for all his efforts as he has went above and beyond and earned the Fenomeno badge! Congratulations and thank you so much for your work!

Remember, for any and all concerns or questions about this project, please PM me, CerealQueen!

Thank you all for your efforts! We really do appreciate it!

Check out the Project Ultimate Chimera board if you want to sign-up!

Artist Spotlight - Somewhere Over the Raenbow


How is your weekend going? Let's have ourselves another Artist Spotlight!

This month's winner is RaeOvertheRainbow

This artist's work has a great display of different stylistic approaches. With rough lines and soft splays of color he can capture an innocent and endearing side of his subjects and with defined lines he can make them pop out to capture the audience's attention to detail. Excellent work!

I am proud to award RaeOvertheRainbow this badge. Please keep submitting! I do love seeing your work!

Artist's spotlight updates the 1st Saturday of every month! Hope you're looking forward to it!

Fanworks Friday: The Final Frontier


What's a better way to start off the weekend than with a fabulous round of Fanworks Friday?

Today's Fanart of the Week winner is Lopuii with her amazing drawing of Mother 2's girl psychic Paula!

Such a beautiful piece! This piece is overflowing with depth and the details are impeccable. This piece made great use of negative space and movement. Slanting the focal point in the center allowed for light to shine through the top portion near Paula's face and a rich shrouded darkness to also be present at the bottom. Her dress separated both elements beautifully and made it simply whimsical and full of movement. Very well done!
Congratulations, Lopuii! Enjoy your deserved badge and I do hope your consider posting your future work on the forums!

Remember to submit your Mother-related fanart/music for the chance to see your work featured!
