[khr] salute

Lurkers :D

I notice a lot of people friended/joined this community who I've never seen around before. Come out and say hi! Really. I don't bite. orochiko told me some people are shy or feel weird/intimidated about talking to me, but I like meeting new people. She, for instance, popped out and said hello to me, and we chat all the time now.

As to the community itself, it may be a bit dead-ish for a while, but I think Kate is going to make a contest soon to stir up livelihood. She has promised some very nice prizes (LJ gift certificates/Amazon gift certificates) for the winners; this is honour of my birthday, which is coming up next month. I want to do my part to encourage the spread of Envy-themed or Ed/Envy-themed fanfiction/fanart, as both are sorely lacking around LiveJournal.

EDIT: But I'm keeping my involvement with this comm peripheral, as I have a lot of fic projects to be tackling right now. So if you want to pester someone about getting contests in gear, pester perivates. :D

First Community Contest!

Since this community is new, what better way is there to liven it up than to start off with a contest? :P

FMA_WL FanArt Contest #1

Theme - "strange new world"

Choose a scene from Waste Land and draw it. (The medium can be whatever you wish: pencil, ink, digital, etc.) There should be a distinct focus on scenery, so the better you incorporate that into your drawing, the better your chances of winning are! Try to choose a scene that you think the contest theme can be best expressed through visual representation.


First Place: $30 gift certificate
Second Place: $25 LiveJournal gift certificate

Submission Guidelines:

(A) In order to qualify, the fanart must be your own, newly-created work. Fanart created and posted prior to the contest cannot be submitted.

(B) If you are doing a collaboration (ie. one person doing linework, another person coloring), both artists must submit the work, with note as to who did which part.

(C) Submit the artwork in GIF, JPG, or PNG format as an email attachment to my email address, kate.douglass[at], no later than 11:59 PM EST on October 7, 2006. The content of the email must contain the following:

1. Your username
2. Your email address
3. The title of the artwork
4. The medium used
5. The rating, and any warnings

All submissions will be hosted on my LJ photo album so that the identities of the artists will be kept anonymous until after the contest has ended.

Members of the community will be encouraged to vote and comment on the submitted pieces, but the final vote will be decided by a selected panel of judges, since this is still a small community and this is the only way to ensure an unbiased vote.

Note: Psst, since the final day of this contest is hieronymousb's birthday, submissions containing pr0n will make her happy!

EDIT @ 3AM, 10/6:

There have only been two submissions so far. Come on everyone, submit something! It's no fun without more competition. :P I'm extending the deadline to 11:59 PM EST, OCTOBER 28th. Good luck, and don't forget about the new deadline!
