This year's theme truly does feel like going in on an art war. You pick a side and then fight the battle! I've already chosen to join the side of heroes (in the 2D battlefield) with my beloved heroine - she has great power, but a power achieved through great hardship, loss and tragedy - a past that she aims to give closure to, by facing head-on the dark powers that ravaged her life in the past.
Unfortunately, I live and work in the Philippines - a country that has recently gained attention for up-and-coming in the concept design & illustration industry (shoutouts to Gunship Revolution!), but is not eligible for this contest. Fortunately, my best friend lives and works in Singapore, and my step father lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. Both individuals whom I have great trust & faith in, and both people happen to live in eligible countries (yay!)
Having read the terms and conditions many times over, it seems that I CAN technically enter the war, but I'm confuzzled and have no idea as to how I'd approach this. Hopefully a friendly moderator could enlighten me regarding this matter, that'd be great!
I'm not really gunning for the prizes, all I wanted was to hone my character design skills and have fun in this competition
