  5. LIKE us on Facebook or sign up for our Newsletter to be notified when the winners are announced!

5 WINNERS!

In order to encourage participation, there will be 5 total winners for this contest! This way more artists can have a chance at winning the prizes. Of course we will have a category for the best overall artwork, however there will be other categories that one can not simply win by having the “best” art skills.

Winner Categories

1. Best Overall Artwork

Several members from the TinyWars artwork team will judge the submissions and select the one that contains the best overall display of artistic ability and skill. There will only be one (1) winner in this category.

2. Best Fit for the “Tiny” Theme

TinyWars isn’t just about cute girls, but cute girls who are tiny! Artwork which integrates with the theme of “tiny” and successfully shows an understanding of the core themes of TinyWars will be eligible for this category. There will only be two (2) winners from this category.

3. Most Unique Style

A submission which demonstrates a clear use of unique style, from hand drawn artwork to a stylistic approach, not all fan arts need to be “anime style.” A submission that clearly demonstrates stylistic mastery will be eligible for this category. ¬†There will only be one (1) winner from this category.

4. Creators Pick

The creator of TinyWars will personally view and select a submission that has not been chosen in the previous categories as the fifth and final winner. There will only be one (1) winner from this category.

Mary References

 

Mary White BGMary sketch side view

Mary Bow Poster V2 (Marked)

Character Description: Mary is the main character of TinyWars, she is the most important character in the game! Her story is a bit mysterious, however what we do know is that she is the leader of the group and she is very bossy. Sometimes she gets angry easily and can throw tempter tantrums, however for the most part she is very confident that she can take on the world, both tiny and the big world! Her age is estimated to be 16 years old.

Old Sister References

Character Description: Old Sister lives in the Candy Castle with her little sister, Amy. ¬†She is often seen sleeping and lazing around while her little sister does all the work. She even gets the ants to bring things to her because she’s so lazy! Her age is estimated to be between 19 – 21 years old. She is in charge of defenses at the Candy Castle and operates a gumball canon. Why does this character not have a name? Because naming characters is really hard and she is not exactly a “main” character in this story.

Suzu References

Melee Girl Scythe CC

Character Description: Suzu is the oldest girl in the group. She is Mary’s guardian and sometimes acts as a motherly figure for all the girls. She is the most mature one in the group. Her melee attacks are very powerful! Her age is estimated to be between 23 – 26.

All Our Main Character Have Fan Art!

All Our Main Character Have Fan Art! 1920 712 andrew

Whooo this is really awesome, all of our main characters finally have at least 1 fan art! That is really, really cool. Honestly, this is something we would have never expected since the game, the demo, isn’t even released yet! It is so cool that we have managed to build an awesome fan base that interacts with us and I really hope we deliver an awesome product for you guys!

Here are the main girls:

In a previous posting, we mentioned that Eve and Kumo were the only two characters who haven’t received any fan art yet. By some miracle both Eve and Kumo received fan arts the very next week! Really awesome!

There are more than these characters in TinyWars, but these are the main girls! There will be some side characters, villains, and monsters. You know we have succeeded when even the monsters from the game get fan art!

TinyWars Fan Art Competition

candy wall scroll tinywars wallscroll

Pictured above is a sample wallscroll mockup. We have ordered an actual wallscroll and once it arrives we’ll see the quality and everything. I really want to host some kind of art competition and giveaway. I want to give out a couple of wallscrolls and other prizes to people who make fan art for us.

This competition should be timed at some point before the demo will release, so we can build some traction before the demo launches! We have received a ton of positive feedback on our social media pages from fans who said they would totally enter a fan art competition!

There is no official competition dates or deadlines yet, will post an update when the wallscroll arrives.

wallscroll helppp

I was having some trouble deciding which wallscroll would be best, after asking the fans, a lot of them said #2 was fine, and #1 was good also. I think I will end up ordering both of them to see in person, but for now, the sample that we ordered was from #1.

Thanks for following the development of TinyWars. Unfortunately I have no significant updates to report on the demo progress, but it is getting closer and closer to completion everyday. Want to make sure we release the demo this year but we also want to make sure it is polished up a bit and presentable, optimized, etc!

 

Fan Art Update #3 TinyWars

We got some awesome fan art to share with you all today. To everyone who took their time to draw our characters, we thank you very much!

Candy Girl (Amy)

Amy, one of our two candy sisters, has quickly become one of the most popular TinyWars characters on many gaming and anime forums. Receiving fan arts of this character confirms it!

There must be something about the Candy Sisters that makes people so attracted to them. Perhaps it’s her innocent, smiling face or the bright colors that remind them of candy.

This fan art in particular looks like a more mature version of her! It’s certainly enjoyable to see our characters in a different perspective and I love it!

This is the official artwork of how the two Candy Sisters will appear in the game! If you thought the name Amy sounds suspiciously close to the Japanese word for candy (ame), then you might be on to something.

Melee Character

Easoka Melee Girl

Artist: Easoka
Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/easoka/ 
DeviantArt: http://easoka.deviantart.com/

This is our melee character, she doesn’t have a name yet! If you have any suggestions for names we’d love to hear them!

This character wields a scythe made with a stick and scissor blade. This is a very spooky rendition of her, and the eyes darting off into the pitch black distance makes it all the more suspenseful! This type of scene might be present later on in the game… you’ll see!

Melee Girl - Anonymous

Artist: Anonymous Contributor

This is another render of the same Melee Character. A beautiful, hand drawn face shot! This one really brings out her design as being one of the oldest characters in the group. I can really appreciate traditional artwork.

Fire Witch (Kim)

Haru Tchi Fire Witch

Artist: Haru Tchi

Twitter: http://twitter.com/Harutchi

A very cute chibi rendition of our fire witch character, also another one of our more popular characters! What I like about this chibi is the proportions very much make her look like a “tiny” person! Her size relative to the ladybug is pretty revealing, I love it!

You probably already know what the official design for Kim looks like, no need to post her!

Girly Version of Mary

Loliroripyon Mary

Artist: Loliroripyon
Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Loliroripyon-1001650486525345/

This is the main character from TinyWars, her name is Mary… and she can be described as anything, BUT girly!

It’s so nice to see our characters in a new light, and I think perhaps this could be a peek into her secret side. We’ll see!

Mary Bow Poster V2 (Marked)

Here’s an official render of our character, Mary, from TinyWars! She’s about as ruthless as a little girl can get! ¬†She’s holding her tiny bow, in which she uses sewing needles as “arrows.”

Thank You Very Much!

To everyone who has taken time out of their lives to draw our characters and create something beautiful for us, we sincerely thank you! I have a lot of respect for the people who create fan art for us, and we love to see it! Please do not hesitate to draw fan art of our characters, we’d love to feature it on this blog!

TinyWars Fan Art Update #2

TinyWars Fan Art Update #2 1920 1080 andrew

It’s really incredible that people are loving our project enough to actually re-create some of our characters. It’s really motivating and honoring to see so much TinyWars Fan Art! I really have a lot of respect for these people¬†who took their time to create fan art for us, it means a lot!

3D Candy Sister HD Render

tinywars candy sister

This one comes from a 3D artist named Vertex a.k.a. Imagination XD . The lighting and colors on this render look very realistic, almost like this could be some kind of clay or play-dough sculpture.

12804616_10204356043136169_9196924814848574665_n 12764504_10204356043096168_5846613676103908657_o

The Candy Sisters will appear in the second chapter of TinyWars. So unfortunately we won’t see them in the first demo release of TinyWars, but this girl and her little sister, Amy, have already gotten a lot of praise for their design and use of bright colors! ¬†We’ll share a lot more details about their stories and personalities later as the project progresses.

Hand drawn Mary Artwork

xYoung-KGNAx

This is a sketch of our main character, Mary. The artists totally admits that this was a very quick sketch, but it’s 100 times better than anything I could ever do. No matter what the artist thinks about their own work, me and the TinyWars team really think it’s awesome. Any kind of fan art is more than we could have ever asked for! ¬†Seriously, I mean it!

Now there isn’t much I want to reveal about Mary right now. She is our game’s main character, and you will learn a ton about her character, personality, and backstory from the first chapter of the game… And hopefully it’s interesting to you and makes you want to keep playing more!

Kim A.K.A. “The Fire Witch” Ink Pen

firewitch TinyWars fan art

This is a lovely pose for our fire witch, Kim. This pose¬†makes her look lovely and sweet; good reflection of her personality! The ink pens allow for those white details to stand out a lot more, i’d say this is pretty accurate in terms of her personality and design! ūüėÄ

Thank you! – From me and the rest of the TinyWars team! <3

Candy Sister Ink Pen

Bunniikitty Candy Sister White Balance

Here’s another fan art of the Candy Older Sister. (She doesn’t have a name yet) Done by the same artist as the fire witch ink pen drawing! This one is really nice, very impressive that the colors from her original design can be replicated with ink and paper. This is beautiful! Thanks Bunniikitty!!!

Here are the WIP images of both the fan arts from above:

Thank You!

It’s so much fun to receive fan art from people who really like our character designs! The whole team gets motivated every time we receive a new fan art. We’ve never had fan art for any of our projects before, so this is a really interesting and awesome experience! Thanks everyone!

2016 Fan Art Update #1

2016 Fan Art Update #1 1280 720 andrew

Seeing fan art and other people drawing characters from my game is a really strange and special feeling. I want to share¬†some of the very first fan artwork we’ve ever received! It makes me so happy to see this kind of artwork and I hope we will receive¬†more in the future.

The following artworks are arranged in the order in which they were received.

1. Hand Drawn Fire Witch

Fire Witch Fan Art (small)

Artist: LaDollBlanche

This one is so unique, hand drawn with a different take on the Fire Witch character. Hand drawn work is quite special, so this Christmas present we received was really nice! Below is an image of the original character.

Wallpaper V1 1080p

2. Candy Girl’s Older Sister

As you can tell by now, we are really creative with our naming! ¬†Though this older sister character isn’t necessarily a main character in the game, so maybe her name isn’t so important, but I promise we will have names for most of our characters by time we release!

happy_new_year_by_hyanna_natsu-d9mcou9

Artist: Hyanna Natsu

This was a really cute New Years gift. Sort of a chibi-ized version of our Candy Girl’s Older Sister. And she’s holding what I presume to be a glass of alcohol. Really nailed the charactization of this girl since she’s supposed to be much older than the rest of the cast from TinyWars!

Original below:
Candy Sister Poster

3. New Character Design???

Now this one is very, um, simple. Someone visited our studio to check out our work, and after they left, I stumbled upon this wonderful piece of¬†original character design. I don’t know if we will end up using this one. I think the person who left this design¬†is asking for a lot of money.

TinyWars New Character (tiny)

Fire Witch Freaked Out!

So we had posted a sexy preview sketch of our fire witch. We have lots of different emotions for our characters throughout cut scenes in the game and talking parts. I figured we should use an “embarrassed” emotion and stick it in the corner.

Sexy Witch (small)

A couple days later someone (who I will keep anonymous)¬†sent me the following image, apparently they had photoshopped our “freaked out” fire witch onto another picture. Warning immature¬†content ahead:

Mating ladybugs

Does this count as a meme? I don’t know. But I figure if someone thought this was funny enough to take their time to photoshop in, why not? Below I have attached a PNG just in case anyone else has any creative ideas with this one. (Though I will not share or re-post anything inappropriate!)

Sexy Witch Reaction

 

 

Thanks for the fan art everyone, I love seeing artwork of our character! It energized the entire team to see that people love our characters enough to take their time to draw them for us. It truly is awesome and I can’t thank you enough! If anyone makes fan arts of our characters please feel free to email or tweet them our way!

Thank you for keeping up to date with the development of TinyWars, we have accomplished a lot of really great things last year and I can’t wait to share the soundtrack, gameplay, more character designs, and of course releasing our first playable demo!
