Sometimes it does not matter how naggy she is, or how often she is never there, or how much many times she keeps buying you the same unfashionable cloths line. She is still your mother, and you owe her at least the gift of birth.

Celebrate Mother's Day by making her hand-made art (statistically, people prefer gifts that come from the heart to expensively bought gifts)!

You have until April 14, 2012 to give me some Mothers Day Contest themes. I will take 10 slots. You do not have to love your mother to give great ideas for this contest!

Ideas:
1. My mom is a grumpy bat on Mother's Day. How do I make her feel better?
2. Mom is never home! What is my gift and how do I get it to her?
3. Imagine you had no mother. What would you lose?
4. I am a hypothetical mother (even if I am male!) to my OCs. If they were real, how would I treat them?
5. Forget the stereotypical flowers and cakes! I am going to do something crazy for mom this year!
6. I have a stay-at-home dad. Never thought of that, did you?
7. Spy Mission to get my mom back from the enemy!
8. Make your mom an award card for being the best mom at _______.
9. Comprise at least 3 attributes your mom is best at (ex: worrying, listening, cooking) and draw panels representing them
10. How dad met mom~ *cough*

I am thinking about adding a "poet" idea for mother's day, and I like attempting poetry even if I am not the greatest. Would other artists like making poetry and accompanying it with art for their mothers? ....I do not think it is that weird/cliche to make poetry for your mothers... Embarassed

I know this is kind of stupid but
"your oc is at the front door with something...for you?!"

I treat my oc's like their my babies for starters they take time to create, draw, concept and make

they become bonded to you and a major part of you so in a way they are like your children >w<

It's a kind of stupid idea though >3> Embarassed

Hmmm I got a few

"How do you see your mother?"

"What did your mother bring out the best in you?"

Something along those lines. Well all I know is that if a gift one is chosen, im drawing mom either Louis from IWTV or Tidus from FFX along with Squall from FF8 (She's nuts for all of them. xD)

That is an interesting concept that I have not thought about! However, since this is a Mother's Day, and not all FAC artists here are female...If I can word it right...

I put it down as "I am a hypothetical mother (even if I am male!) to my OCs. If they were real, how would I treat them?"

Quote:
"How do you see your mother?"

That can imply both bad and good opinions, and I want these Mother's Day gifts to have positive atmospheres. Is there a way you can word it less vaguely?

Quote:
"What did your mother bring out the best in you?"

Since the "Imagine you had no mother. What would you lose?" theme implies drawing out a good quality you would lose without your mother, that theme is somewhat taken!

I also put in a "Forget the stereotypical flowers and cakes! I am going to do something crazy for mom this year!" It adds a "glam/crazy" topic to choose from! Surprised

I said the poll would close on April 21, 2012, but I was too busy this week to make the contest picture and set up the contest rules, so I am going to extend the poll closing until April the 28, 2012 (next week). There are actually 2 options that are close in votes to each other, so I also want to see if this extra week counts.

Sorry for the busyness (college does that to you ;oWink! I will return to you guys next week with the beginning of the contest and the announced theme!

FREAKING BALLS

I cannot believe I keep doing that. My mind is working months and months too slow. Thank-you so much for telling me that- someone caught it 1.5 weeks after it had been posted! I need to quadrupedal-reread everything I post.

Also, I will start the Mothers Day Contest picture this weekend! Sorry for the wait! I will avoid making you guys wait an extra week. I realize you guys get crazy when I extend poll dates!
