☀Child of Light Fanart Contest!☀

Break out those art supplies, readers!

The end of Child of Light is approaching quickly, with a little more than 2 volumes remaining. Thus, in celebration, I will be holding a fanart contest here on Wuxia World! Artists are free to draw anything related to Child of Light! Be it a scene in the novel, or something you thought up yourself; you can draw it! The contest will be held from July 18 to August 31st with monetary prizes totaling $350 and fantastic (perhaps even server breaking) milestone rewards!

Read the rules below and post your submissions in the forums!
Update: Reference art has been added!

Content: It’s a free for all! You can draw anything (within reason) you want as long as it’s related to Child of Light!
However, here are a few recommended scenes to draw in case you can’t think of anything:

  1. Zhang Gong leaning his head against Xiao Jin
  2. Zhang Gong surrounded by the dragons, who are asking him to name them
  3. Zhang Gong and Mu Zi
  4. [To be revealed in Volume 11!]
  5. Characters in action!

1st place: $2001

2nd place: $100

3rd place: $50
In addition to the prize money, the winners will be given the opportunity to introduce themselves, add a link to their website, deviantart page, portfolio, or anything else to promote themselves(within reason).

    1. I made one on paint, just to join in. Even though it sucks it is a bit of a laugh, you should see someone who put the child of light baby picture hahaha

  1. Hey there Ruze!

    In regards to competition, I took a look at the discussion forums available and saw nothing related to the thing I wanted to draw. So I wanted to ask if the competition is strictly towards the characters within Child of Light or can we draw Zhang Gong’s Staff of Sukrad and magic circles, etc? (Mainly because my huam drawing skills suck, but items are alright.)

    Thanks for reading this! 😀

  2. That moment when you decide to power-read through Child of Light while simultaneously going on YouTube to try leveling up your drawing skills for this contest xD


  3. uhmmm…. I would like to ask …. I’m going to ‘join’ this competition but I don’t want the money because I only draw for fun (and for sharing my imagination) if you want to help me only give me lama in deviantart.com …. is it okay…? hihihi!!!!
