This may date me and a bunch of others around TheO (mostly the MyO survivors I'd wager) But with seeing a few under-appreciated challenges out there, I reminisced about some wonderful series that were somewhat appreciated in their day, but not nearly enough. The old Toonami program that use to run on Cartoon Network was a big part of getting me into anime. So I present a challenge to commemorate said program.
I wasn't sure if Fan Art, Wallpaper, etc would be the best place for this challenge, but if there is a demand for it, I'll later redo this challenge in those categories (as I personally favor making a wallpaper over drawing a fan art XD)
Since this is a fan art challenge, the challenge is to draw *nearly* anything from Toonami and in the description share a fond memory you have from Toonami.
It can be fan art from a series you watched on Toonami to your favorite Toonami host.
Non-anime like Thundercats or Teen Titans totally count!
You don't have to be 100% canon, if it's something Toonami inspired, like you wrote a fanfiction back then and decided to draw a scene from it for this challenge, that would count too!
Remember that Y7-FV/PG was the highest rating they went; let's keep it that way in the challenge.
A warning: Since animes like Naruto, Sailor Moon, and Pokemon are still popular (as in you're sure to find cosplayers and merchandise at even the smallest anime convention) and they have plenty of fan art on their own, any submissions for them will not be considered for prizes. You may still enter them however if they are a fond part of your memory of Toonami.
Up to Three Gold Medals will be awarded to the top submissions
Qualifying Fan Arts + Fond Memory in the description will get a Gift (you may specify if you'd like a specific one in your description, otherwise, I'll probably send the pencil, easel or brush)
Normally, I believe any effort is worth it and everyone who tries should get an A for effort, but that's not always possible. So this time around, I think I'll be a bit more biased than usual. But please don't let that discourage you from entering!
First and foremost, I'll be looking for shared memories. Older Toonami programs that I'm familiar with will be more likely for the top three. (I use to watch YuYu Hakusho, Kenshin, DragonBalls, Tenchi Muyo!, (original)Yu-Gi-Oh!, Teen Titans, Justice League, ThunderCats, Voltron, etc.)
Content that makes me go 'awwww' or 'oooh!' or laugh in a good way will be more likely for the top three as well.
Quality will come after content...so this challenge will give a chance those like me who aren't as good at drawing XD
