superhero weekly feature themeContest ended.

Have you ever been inspired, and I mean truly?
I know a lot of times we forget that deep feeling that comes up when we watch see or hear something truly wonderful, the thing that touches our hearts in the most tender way.

For me it's whenever I hear the song, "Brothers" which I know a lot of people might have said before, but for me there's just no taking that magic away from it, no matter how many times you hear it or have heard people talk about it.

I think in that way a lot of the Anime we watch is not just because it's fun and inviting, or that it's unique and interesting. A lot of why we love Anime is for those subtle emotions that come along with it, that's a lot of what makes Fullmetal Alchemist stand out, all those tender moments that really strike a cord with us and inspire us to create.
It's not just that Series but in a lot of other ones in the genera, Dragon Ball Z is intimidating but will surprise you. The joy of fiction and imagination is it flows so well with creative works.

superhero weekly feature themeThere are lots of things that really give us as human beings wings and help us in the way only those feelings can, whether it be in writing or drawing, or creating Costumes. It's inspiration that allows us to express ourselves and find a way to make use of that feeling.

So we thought it'd be an awesome idea to have a Contest for the Anime that inspire you. In addition, try to include in the comments or in the comments of your deviation/entry what it is that inspired you to draw it and why you love what it is you love. =)

(Sorry for being so sappy. lol)

Note: This is an Art Contest.
(Don't worry I know you AMV Creators Cosplayers and Writers have been waiting patiently for a new Contest aimed your way. We intend to do so in not too long. ^^)

Hey there! :wave:

I was wondering if you guys would be okay with extending the contest to March 31st. I have something that I want to enter really badly, and its halfway done, but I don't have a lot of time this week finish it because I'm working. Is that okay? ^^;

I have a few questions about this...
1) If I do draw a specific character/scene from an anime that really inspired me, does the character/scene have to include the character that Vic voiced?

2) Can the drawing have spoilers in it? For example: plot twists, series endings, major characters dying,etc.

Sorry about the questions but I wasn't to sure

Can I draw something from a manga? (not copying but...) When I read the thing I immediately thought of a manga series that totally changed my life. I don`t think it was ever made into an anime....

I feel the same way. :) There's a line in FMA the original series that just really hit home because of things I was dealing with at the time, but how the heck to I do justice to the feeling in a drawing? *scratches head* Here's to both of us in expressing our feelings through art!
