This might be a little buried among everything else, but I have been thinking about how cool it'd be if ~Colors Universe~ were to spread as a fandom. Although I believe traffic in archive sites will still mostly be from TCG members, it'd be nice to see art and fic posted in archive sites! If any of you are willing, I would love to see you submit your art and fic over at Deviantart. You can also consider submitting your fic to Archive of Our Own. If anyone is willing to consider submitting to Archive of Our Own, I will create a collection there!
(I am pretty clueless about Deviantart and haven't even written up an intro post, haha. If anyone would like to volunteer to monitor the DA group in my stead, let me know! <3 )
May/June Open Fic and Art Submission!!
We now have a complete cast of characters!
For each character's designs, please visit the website.
We now have all 8 characters, plus the pets, eeee! Keep the art coming! The characters almost have enough art for decks!
Guidelines for submitting art:
♥ Your artwork must be of Akai-san, Mikan-tan, Kou-kun, Midorin, Aoi-sama, Murasaki-dono, Tobi-han, Gin-sensei, Shirocchi, Kurocchi, or any combination of them!
♥ Your art must be in color.
♥ Your art must be at least 400 px wide (and will actually be resized to 400 px wide for the site, but larger images are always awesome since I might use them in other graphics such as site banners!).
♥ You must save your art as either a gif, png, or jpg.
♥ You may submit up to three pieces of artwork (you can submit more but will receive no rewards for them).
♥ Rewards are as follows:
-full body shot = 4 random cards, 1 random crayon
-upper body = 2 random cards, 1 random crayon
-two or more characters in the same shot = 4 random cards, 1 random crayon (regardless of whether or not we see all of them)
-4koma = 4 random cards, 1 random crayon (The whole thing doesn't need to be in color, but please at least have the characters in color!)
When submitting your art, please comment below, label the subject of your comment with ART, and then use the form below.
Looks like we didn't have as much fic last time. I hope your creativity hasn't dried out yet! How will Shirocchi and Kurocchi change things up? :D

Here are some themes and situations you can consider to jog your creativity. ;) They're optional for Art but required for Fic. You are also free to use themes from previous open fic and art submission posts!
This round, we have a series of 8 themes that start with M~.
...I have only just noticed that all the girls have names that start with M! XD;
This will close on June 25th! Kind of a strange date, haha... was going to make it the end of June, but I won't be around then, so. :') If the closing date changes, I will post a notice to the community!
