Right, so here we are. Close to the end of May with one month and just a few days to go till the volume two premiere of RWBY at RTX. I know the fan-base has been getting a lot of hype currently thanks to the teasing that Rooster Teeth has been putting out. Volume two’s opening theme (Which is absolutely gorgeous once again. Jeff and Casey have outdone themselves like always <3 ) A new figurine in the store of Weiss in all her battle glory, and much more art and character turnarounds from Monty.
Though I propose the RWBY Fan-base continue the hype. And as such I, Nickel, challenge the fan-base with a 30 day Artistic Challenge. For the month of June, right until RTX, I ask the fan-base to come up with doodles, poems, one shot stories, or anything artistic. Guidelines? Simple really. Delve into the RWBY Universe with an artistic mind. Take us to Beacon and help us learn new things. Tell us a small story of your OC character or perhaps on of the Canons. Make us cry, laugh, and yearn for more with words and art.
Now, each member of the fan-base has a choice of two ways to do this. They can follow the Theme challenge or the Music Shuffle challenge. Reasons for being able to choose is sometimes people find the theme hard to write to while music seems much easier. So each day the fan-base will be given a theme. Or they’ll be able to get a song and dedicate their art to that song from their shuffled library. The choice is yours. All I ask though is that you choose one or the other for continuity reasons. It’ll become hard to follow with the changes if you switch between one and the other.
The guidelines are easy to follow really.
1: Each entry must be kept in the RWBY universe as stated earlier. Oc’s are allowed but make sure that either the canon characters or the areas are pure RWBY.
2: Each entry has to be a different post. Please don’t correlate on theme onto another. Make your entries separate from each other to fulfill the challenge.
3: If you accidentally skip a day or two, no worries. I know some of the fan-base will be probably traveling to Austin the last week of June to get ready for RTX. In that case feel free to post them earlier or later. I do not wish to take to much time out of your life for the challenge.
4: This is for fun. Remember that. Please do not get stressed over anything. If you feel stressed remember you can just take a break or stop doing this. Your relaxation and happiness comes first and foremost.
5: I would say keep it clean though I wish to not force certain styles down other’s throats. Do what you wish with your entry. Though if you find it a little more… well mature.. for some audiences. Tag it appropriatly. Or put a warning before hand.
6: Length. Few paragraphs are perfectly fine. A small sketch is fine. All I ask is for more than two sentances even. You could go on for a full chapter if you wish. I’m putting the metaphorical scepter in your hand.
7: Last but not least. I’d like to see your entries. Very badly would like to see them. Please tag them with #Nickelsrwbychallenge and the theme as well as #June2014 . Or, send me the link to your work via twitter @RWBYChallenge. Put the them in the title. If you use a song as your theme, please put the song title and artist somewhere that we can see and take a look at as well. xD
See not too many rules, just have fun.
Themes for the RAC: (Remember these theme’s are are meant to be vague so that you can interpret them how you wish. Do you wish to write about Ruby for the Red theme? Or about something else? By Grim do you think the feeling.. or the Grimm Creatures? Take from it how you wish <3 Your imagination is your tool. Feel free to follow this order.. or do them out of order. Though try to do them all.)
Be original. Get Hyped for our favorite show. The RWBY Artistic Challenge officially begins on the 1st so send out messages and let people know who are dedicated to the fan-base <3
These days are meshed together because not much happened in those days. Lots of leveling up on route 3, 4 and 22. Everyone is level 12 besides Slyveon who’s level 13 as well as have a move to compliment their types finally. Oh and yes Eevee did evolve into Sylvie after we beat the gym. :3
