Hey all you NintyFans~!

Sorry for keeping you all waiting, but now here is the long awaited contest!

I've been reading the contest ideas you've all been giving out, and it seems
like everyone wanted a Super Smash bros related contest, so we decided
to have this theme, and is also the best we could think up!

Aim: Draw a character you would want for the next Smash bros game! Make sure
it's a character from Nintendo, and do not try characters from previous Smash bros games!
Give them a great moveset!

I apologize if this question is obvious but I just want to make sure. We are supposed to submit our entry to the "Competitions Folder" right? 
Thanks!

I'll enter, but I'm curious. Since Mega man is in the new smash bros, can we use a character that's from Capcom but has a game on a Nintendo console or not?

 

I just need to know before I start in case my entry isn't allowed because of that.

These must be canon characters, right? Do the contest entries need to explicitly be drawn/named for this contest (can slightly old/already-in-Ninty pics be entered), and/or do the characters we choose need to be fighting/interacting with SSB characters?

Any Nintendo character is absolutely fine, as long as they've not featured in the series before. And we always prefer our entries to be completely brand new please. :)
Our rules state that you can draw them with their moveset, but this is entirely up to you (same goes for fighting other characters).

I hope I have time enough to do it.
LittleOcean's avatar
Too bad that I can't try this one ><
I was thinking to try but I think I don't have time for this when I decided to take break and practice (not good enough skills to do this) ^^;

I really like your stuff, you seem pretty good to me.
LittleOcean's avatar
Hm, well I might try this one after all, now that I didn't take break after all.
But if I try I'm not sure about character stuff. I mean I have kind only 2 or 3 (most one character what I really wanted to have in new ssb) in my mind but what if do same character what others has done...does it breaking the rules or not? : o
I'm kinda very very careful with rules (maybe too careful ^^; )

Well it is not my contest but I think it is safe to say that as long as you do a character that no smash bros game has ever had yet you're fine. Even if someone else has it too. Personally I am going wit a certain NES character and I KNOW no one will do that one as well. XD

I've changed the deadline for the giveaway. It now ends on the 20th August instead of the 1st. As the 1st is only next week, it gives us more time to collect prizes, and more time for you guys to work on your entries!
