    I been MIA for what feels like a lifetime and recently came back cause of Lockdown, so to my horror I can’t seem to find the Monthly Fan Art Contest which I really enjoyed back in the day. I entered them religiously back in 2006 and stopped I think in 2008.

    So was just wondering what happened to them? When did it end? Or is it still continuing and I can’t find them?

    Sorry about the randomness of this Thread but wanted to know, as it’s a shame if it’s gone, as it was good fun and really would of been enjoyable now with Lockdowns and other BS happening recently...

    Cheers to whoever reads this and replies!!!

    I don't know. I remember one a year or two ago...? Maybe it was for Halloween? It's been awhile.

    i was running them but there was little to no participation.
    sadly, this section doesn't get the traffic that it used to.

    if the artists ever come back here regularly i would totally be up for doing them again

    That’s a shame, I did really enjoy them back in the day. Let’s hope that artists do come back as with Lockdown be good fun and a way too take our minds off things.

    Yeah, I remember low participation going on. It really seems like this area of the board is widely ignored. I know I've been away recently, but I've been cramming on polishing my book project.

    Hi everyone, I'm new in the forum. I register myself, to learn more about comics, but, I've seen some nice drawings too and they are pretty cool and fun!! Didn't know that back in time existed an art context around here that sounds interesting though.

    I like to draw myself too if it would be one day a fun context like that maybe I would join in :-)

    Well sure, I would like that, but, I don't really draw super heroes, what I do more are caricatures or portraits in sort of GTA comic style though, don't know if there are any rules in the context or we can just post whatever work we do?
    But I would like to post soon as I can I will start with posting some drawings just finishing some details;)
