Artists, heed my words! This time, I'm not asking you to send your stuff in to me for Fanart Friday (although you totally should anyways), but instead, I'm directing you to a chance for fame and some really good reading?
Archie Comics, publishers of the surprisingly excellent Mega Man comic, are hosting a fanart contest titled "Rock of Ages" in celebration of Mega Man's 25th anniversary. The rules are simple--put together a piece that "showcases Mega Man and/or his universe."
So no crossover stuff, it seems
First place gets your art a full-page display in the upcoming Mega Man #23, along with the first four collected volumes of the series, issues 20-23, the Mega Man Tribute artbook from UDON, and a Mega Man prize pack from Capcom-Unity. Three runners-up will have their art displayed in Mega Man #23, and win Mega Man issues 20-23 along with a copy of the Mega Man Tribute artbook. Check out the full details for the contest here, and good luck!
For those of you interested in following the Mega Man/Sonic: Worlds Collide crossover, Archie is also offering a deal where you can get a one-year subscription to Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sonic Universe for $59.99--that's not that bad!
Will you be putting pencil to paper, and getting a piece together for the "Rock of Ages" fanart contest?
