Visions of Kaikala – A Rite from the Stars Fan Art Contest

Nov 17th, 2014

The other day, a friend of ours and fellow artist told us that he loved A Rite from the Stars’ art style. He also asked us if he could make a piece of artwork based on it. And we said OF COURSE! We really love to see new visions inspired by the world of Kaikala. And then… BAM! Another idea struck our goatish minds.

Organizing a fan art contest to admire all kinds of ‘A Rite from the Stars’ visions around the world! And we have chosen a cool name for it: ‘Visions of Kaikala – Fan Art Contest’.

Our friend will be the first participant. We encourage you to challenge him! FOR ART, FOR GLORY, FOR PRIZES (see the submission rules below)!!!
