2007 RK Fanart Contest is now over! ^_^x
This year's theme was a bit different:
Memories & What Could Have Been
As always, how closely you stick to the theme is up to you. You don't have to follow the theme if you don't want to, but it will factor a bit into judging. This year's challenge is to do one of the following:
1.) Depict a missing scene. In other words, a scene that is mentioned or hinted at in RK, but never actually shown in the manga, series, or OAV's. Examples of this would be characters' pasts, events that happen between chapters or episodes, or things that happen in the future after the last volume of the manga.
2.) Depict an Alternate Universe scene or a scene from a fan fic. This includes alternate pairings, alternate endings or events, etc. Your imagination's the limit. If you choose to base a pic off a fanfic, you must HAVE PERMISSION FROM THE FANFIC AUTHOR before submitting artwork. You don't need proof (I'll take your word of honor for it, but you should ask.) Of course, if it's your own fanfic, this should be easy....
Thanks muchly to Snowsnuff and ISJ for helping with the idea for this year's theme. And thanks to everyone else who mentioned other fantastic suggestions.
