Last year when JP server had their festa art contest event, I was alway hoped that it would come to US server too. However, it was turned out to be winter event without the outstanding part of that festa event which is the fan-art contest. This year, during the same period that JP is running 2nd year anniversary festa contest. It is the time for our community to shine!! Now, this is not JP only, nor US only, but Global!!

How to get Festa point?
you can get Festa point which will contribute to the same server pool for everybody by following action:
-give 1 festa point
for anybody who PM me a draft of his/her work to resistor that he/she is participating. Draft can be anything that can show me the idea of what are you doing. The purpose is to let me know whether you understand the theme/rule or not, and also opportunity for you to ask specific question.)
From 8 August, you can only send the second draft after you finished your first entry.
-give 1 festa point
for anybody who post their finished work in this thread.
-give 2 festa point
for anybody who post their finished work within the first week
of the event.
(1 work can gain 4 mark if all conditions clear) I will still give 1 festa point if you finish after week one.
notice : individual score(you get this point from quality/effort/idea of your work) =/= festa point (public score, contribute as whole)
Event theme explanation.
we don't want you to send us the whole book of your RP story. we want you to cut only 1 outstanding part/scene of that story into 1 picture. You might have many important part in your story, but we only need you to select one. and don't worry if 1 pic might not enough for us to understand your story, because story is not contribute to the score.
In case of Art-work, you have your power and imagination to draw so many things, I don't see any hard problem here, but I will give some example for photoshop user who can't draw.
I will show some easy example here:
case of my RP, "creating Ultimate newman"
you might putting your character inside the experiment capsule and Dr. Tomrain with many other. are working on genetic engineering on you. (just find laboratory from other game(eg. FFVIIDC, Residental Evil, etc), and replace the person inside the tube with yourself, cut off Dr. tomrain screen to replace some scientist)
Case of people who RP as top idol :
she may use screen shot of the start of FF-X-II, which is the stage show, with many people screaming/waving, and has her character walking on the stage.
Case of people who RP as Sephiroth:
might as well putting a fight with Cloud, kill Arist or/and destroying Shinra co.
Case of Gf-Bf RP:
put both of char into cafe/restaurant with romantic feeling. Since this might be so easy as much as just replacing char, posing or inserting more detail on pic might implement.
Those above are just an easy examples only, I bet each of you should have your different idea in this point. Please also consider "overall look" if they look good or not. If you don't want to draw your character, then you can just use NPCs or other player characters instead. (draw me would me nice xD)
please don't hesitate to post your work here early. Not only that will contribute more to Festa point which also benefit you to unlock prizes, posting early will also reserve your original creativity idea. This mean, if anybody copy part of your work or steal your idea, they will get no score from this section. So, post it first to make sure that nobody can use the same idea as you before you do.
