Drawing manga/comic contest:
Many people say: “I love comics!”
Many say: “I love comics, I draw comics.”
And many others say nothing, but they love and draw comics in silence.
BFM is a 100% free online comic magazine, so of course, comics posted in this magazine don’t receive royalties. However, if you draw without any motivation or goal, it probably isn’t fun or easy. The staff of the magazine themselves aslo draw comics and know this fact very well. On the other hand, BFM, as mentioned in volume 1, want to be not only a playground for people who love comics, but also a drawing arena, where amateurs can seek motivation and goals to gain so as to draw better and better works.
Therefore, Race up contest is born. A comic drawing contest through the Internet with interesting prizes! WHY NOT TRY???!
