Boys of Summer Art Challenge (2021)

The post below is from samuraireflections.

Hi everyone!

June is around the corner and we’re doing the Boys of Summer Challenge again.

Originally, the challenge was to draw one piece of fanart every day for the month of June. And you can still do that, if that’s the challenge you want, but it has now evolved in hopes that more fans feel included and will participate.

The goal of the challenge is just to generate more YST/RW fanworks in June for all of us to enjoy, be it 1 or 30. Here are the guidelines:

1. ANY type of fan work is welcome: art, fics, drabbles, memes, screen cap edits, whatever you want.

2. You choose your challenge. If you want to try for one a day, go for it. If you don’t think you can do more than two a week, then make that your goal. We are all busy, so you set a goal that is something you can accomplish with your schedule.

3. Have fun! And please join us in the Samurai Reflections discord to see what everyone else has cooked up: https://discord.gg/PqQfdqV

You can also post on Tumblr with the #BOS hashtag.

Looking forward to seeing everyone participating!

Okay, SO…..this has been an ongoing project ever since I got Animal Crossing: New Horizons last year. I started out making Yoroiden Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors custom designs for my character to wear, then later got inspired to build shrines around my island using those same custom designs. Each shrine is based on characters throughout the series and from the OVAs. More will probably be added if inspiration strikes again!

The dream address for my island is DA-9249-2490-9836 for those who have the game and would like to visit.

For those who don’t have ACNH (or don’t mind seeing spoilers), there are photos below the cut that show everything I’ve made on the island so far! :3

Boys of Summer 2020

Hey Ronin Warriors/Samurai Trooper fandom. Do we want to do the Boys of Summer art challenge in June this year?

This is happening if you want to participate. You can post on here under the #BOS tag. There is also a dedicated channel on the Discord.

Normally, the challenge is to do one piece of fan work (art, fic, edits, memes ect) a day for the month of June. But since I think it’s safe to say the large majority of our fan community are adults with a lot of stuff going on, we’re going to alter this challenge a bit.

YOU decide what your goal is. If you think all your schedule allows is one piece of fanart a week, then that is what you should strive for. The whole point of the challenge is to create more fan works. I don’t want people to not try at all because the challenge of one a day for a month is too daunting.

So you challenge yourself with what you think you can handle and if you meet that goal by the end of the month, then you have won the challenge.

I hope many out there accept the challenge and I look forward to seeing your entries.

Just a reminder that June is almost here.

Set your goals, plan your projects. They’ve been posting prompts over at discord where the BOS has its own channel.

Naaza/Sekhmet bootleg figure updates

New photos have surfaced of the bootleg “armor plus” Naaza.

I’m not sure why his face was blurred out in the first photo, and no one is quite sure what’s going on with his red hands. This is the same company that released the Anubis/Cale “armor plus” bootleg, and is the same company that is working on the Shuten/Anubis “armor plus” bootleg.

No shipment date has been confirmed, but the figure has appeared on eBay as a presale with an estimated ship date between January 23rd and March 5th.

Let’s hope the quality is improved…

Caught red-handed? Entered witness protection program?

Yeah, I got nothing. 😛
