    Read on for rules, tips, and more!

    In order to create more interesting content, we're going to ask that you give us a little background info on each piece, so we can write about it when you win!!! Please copy-paste the following into your entry and fill it out!

    • 1. What's your name?
    • 2. Where do you live?

    • 5. How long did it take?

    PROTIPS for the best shot at winning:

    • Maximize your votes. While getting the most votes does not guarantee victory, you must be in the top 5 to be selected!
    • Enter early (the earliest entries have more time to get votes)!
    • Join and follow the BIGBITE group to get a notification when we launch each new contest!
    • If people liked it, but it didn't win, enter it again!
    • Make sure the post shows up correctly--direct links tended to do far worse than embedded images.
    • Get on your social media accounts and tell your friends to vote for you! Don't forget to give them the direct link to your post. (That's the hyperlink on your post number, kids!)

    So, here's the rules (updates in bold):

    • The fan art is to be of RT and Let's Play family topics.
    • Previous entries may be re-entered, provided they have never won.
    • You may win multiple times, and previously being featured in BIGBITE.Media does not preclude you from winning.
    • Entries must be received by 11:59PM CST on Wednesday, 09.06.2017
    • The top 5 modded posts will be selected as finalists (read: TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO VOTE!)

    • 1. What's your name? Ade
    • 2. Where do you live? Tennessee
    • 3. What do you do? Freelance art
    • 4. How did you create this piece? The lines were done with acrylic ink on heavyweight paper, and the coloring/effects was done in Photoshop CS6.
    • 5. How long did it take? It took about four hours to complete the lines, and a day's work for coloring and effects. These were done separately.
    • 6. What was your inspiration? I wanted to create a piece featuring Salem that was both beautiful and frightening, as she is. I tried to make her pose almost motherly, beckoning to the Grimm at her heels, with a queenly posture and a look of mischief on her face.

    • 1. What's your name? Sophia aka Ita-dere Cosplay aka Admin Trash Mom of Rwbyworld
    • 2. Where do you live? In a little town in Idaho.
    • 3. What do you do? I'm a Waitress at a Mom and Pop' BBQ Shop and cosplay.
    • 4. How did you create this piece? So the way I made my Raven I took a top pattern and modified the sleeves on the pattern myself. I also made the skirt using a normal pleated skirt pattern. For the Obi (red band around the waist) I went and patterned that myself but just making the thickness I wanted and layered it. I also added a zipper and darts in the back to make it more form fitting. For the Obi design I took black ink, like you would use with calligraphy, and painted it on the fabric. Doing it this way will prevent any change in the fabric because fabric paint will make it stiff. For the armor I used just normal foam that is thicker than craft foam but thinner than the EVA floor mats. The mask I patterned out myself and used EVA foam and added some LED lights I found on amazon. And used a red plastic folder for eye slits above where you see out the mask. The hair also has a feather headdress that I made from rooster tail feather trim. You could use feather boas if you're on a budget because real feathers are spendy... cost me about $80-$100 on feathers for my headdress and the side feathers on her hip. For the white parts on the stuff that hangs of her hips I used a white iron on vinyl. Also for the headdess I sewed it into the wig as well.... As for the weapon... I got that 3D printed.  That is just the basics of what I did.
    • 5. How long did it take? About 1 1/2 months. I kept having to order feathers because there wasn't enough!!
    • 6. What was your inspiration? The biggest reason I decided to cosplay Raven was because I normally cosplayed Yang with my friend as Ruby. We had the brilliant idea to cosplay their moms next. Which of course is what we did.

    1. What's your name? 

    Christian S.

    2. Where do you live?

    New Orleans

    3. What do you do?

    Working on an indie game project, vertical slice to be released sometime in the coming two weeks, also looking into freelance and employment in greater games industry.

    4. How did you create this piece?

    I used a program called Marmoset Hexels and free hand drew it.  Hexel's uses six sided or three sided polygons called Hexels and Trixels, respectively, instead of the traditional four sided pixel.  This creates stylized low poly style art fairly easily.  I referenced a fighting pose of Bruce lee for this piece.

    5. How long did it take?

    Made over the course of a day, with intermittent breaks of ten to twenty minutes every hour or so. 

    6. What was your inspiration?

    Ein Lee released the Vol. 5 Yang artwork and I just loved it, so I went through my reference library untill I found a pose I liked, in this case a still of Bruce Lee, and I based it on that photo.
