More non artist based contests!

Postby lopez » Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:46 pm

I really appreciate NISA making a contest for those not artistically inclined with the Sakura Wars Comic Contest.

I would love to see more of these types of contests for the average joes out there who would like to enter NISA contests, but have no artistic talent, or aren't interested in drawing or making stuff (i.e. badcraft).

What do you guys think?

I thought this was a really cool idea. I'm racking my brain to come up with something entertaining. This type of thing is something that artistically-challenged individuals like me can participate in!

I can write an essay, but I can't draw worth a whoop! :lol:

I'd love to hear them.... anyway, if you have any other ones, I think you could give them to robbie, as he's always open to suggestions. :D

A gaming contest. Definitely.
Lowering the price of the PS3 to $150 is like mass producing the Big Zam. It's the greatest idea that will never come to pass. OH SHI-!

I write for a living, so I would love a chance to show those skills off, but writing contests are almost non-existent these days.

As a fairness issue, it's better to do non-artist contests, because artistic talent is at least partially an inborn quality.

Those people who can hear something and then duplicate it on a musical instrument blow me away.

My dad does that, it's crazy. He doesn't use tabs or anything.

I can't work without some sense of direction, so give me the music sheets and I'm at home. Improvising isn't my style.
