    Oh interesting... Just found out on twitter LOL well since I don't have time to draw anything coz of work.
    Should this do? My last year's work when I was so excited about 5th Job, Zero's 5th skill Chrono Break was a beaut! SO I drew my character with the skill being used
    Also...the background was actually screenshot of the skill itself so I won't take credit for that, except for the clock platform

    Update:
    since the contest has been extended, I'd like to use this one as newer version since I got myself a type 9 weapon, just colored this the whole morning and afternoon. and I did lineart 1st yesterday the whole night. It was really hard since I used a mouse to the whole thing except the background, its the same screenshot as above. Goodluck guys :)

    Ah darn, I recently started to work on something but I doubt I'll finish it before the date... ah well.

    We're working on seeing if we can extend the date due to the busy timing of this contest.
    However, we also want to keep it fair at the same time to those who entered already within the specified time so it may not be by much.

    Hey no problem, I completely understand :)

    Update: We were able to negotiate a one week extension for this contest. As specified in the original post, if any participant would like to make changes or add onto their submission, they're more than welcomed to do so. Loving many of the entries so far and cannot wait to feature them all with hopefully more to come!

    Sorry, I'm experiencing some minor issues with work this week in RL and sadly enough don't have enough time to finish the drawing I was working on, on time. Therefore I'll upload something I drew last year. When my other drawing is finished I'll make sure to share it with you guys on Twitter. QhJfrQR.png

    Good day everyone!

    Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry for this contest, but a few things to note for the winner selection and some exciting news for artists. For this contest, we kept winners to those who created a piece for the purpose of this contest. I do know some of you were short on time and submitted an entry of existing artwork, but we do want to reward those who put in the time to make something from scratch!

    However, this got us thinking... What if we allowed MapleStory artists to submit a wallpaper at any time and we could swap out the landing page background image every month? We would love to see new and existing artwork submitted for the sole purpose of us featuring them through our Discord server!

    Anywho, without further adieu, please give a round of applause to our winners:
    Grand Prize Winner

    Please inform me if prizes haven't been delivered by: 12/01! Again, thank you guys for joining and we'll be sure to open up an official page where you guys can submit your artwork to be featured on our Discord invite page.

    Until next time~

    Congratulations to the winners!

    Arwoo, you need to clean up your post a bit - you left some commentary from the Look of the Month in there.
    Also, it's "without further ado", not "without further adieu".

    As for more submissions - you did say you were going to change the background every month, so it seems there will always be room for more submissions.

    Ack! I missed this contest!
    Count my dismay at my tardiness as a vote in favor of the discord accepting new art submissions!

    Also, Gratz winners! These are lovely <3

    I appreciate simplicity sometimes, but if you're referring to your entry, your design is not my aesthetic. That's just my opinion, though. After all, art is subjective. Maybe you'll have better luck next time. Also, I recommend being more respectful to others.

    Though I kinda wish we got to see more entries, there were some nice designs. Congrats to the Hierophantom, and to the other runner-ups! :)

    I was trying to go for a Square Enix type feel. If you look at all the FF games and their covers, it is where you'll see I got my inspiration from -> 1190212760-00.jpg
