Upcoming Playlists

The featured playlist . . . Big Team KO!
Here are the full Season 6 Week 9 Playlist Schedules:

Community Hub

Here at this ESTEEMED University, you’ll find just as much enrichment from the social groups as the classes! Think of the KO City Community as your after-school club: jam-packed with brawlers getting to know one another, swapping brawlin’ strategies, and even fashioning fabulous art!

Speaking of art – let’s see what some of these School of Brawl students have been working on . . .

Fanart

First up, a project that definitely counts as extra credit in my gradebook: a comic titled “Yuki Reflects” by LuckieMoon!

“After playing KOC for so long, I started to think about who the brawlers in KOC were exactly, and what life was like there. The comic was my thought experiment to go deeper into KOC's world and find out what life is like there from my brawler's perspective (it's also one of the first pieces I've made). Doing this kind of thing helps me become more immersed in the game and kinda fueled me creatively, so I hope to keep learning and improve as I make more stuff.” – LuckieMoon

This next piece, in my HUMBLE opinion, is an illustration full of mystery and magic! Doesn’t this look like the first page of a phenomenal fantasy novel?? The artist – SadCactus7 – says about their work: “I created this as an entry for an art contest originally. I wanted to draw Chonky with my favourite ball, the moon ball!”

You’ve done Chonky proud, Cactus!

“Boba Cola Bubblegum” gets FIVE gold stars from me! Created by the artist Sweet, this 1950’s-style collection of expressions from a brawler (one determined, one all-knowing, one inquisitive) is an aqua-and-pink dream. I’d pay a pretty penny to pick up a comic book dedicated to this determined brawler. What’s their story??

About their piece, Sweet says: “I've put a heavy emphasis on portrait art in my work lately--confident, stylized portraits. KO City's brawlers are energetic expressive, and funky, so naturally...fanart!”

Bravo, Sweet!
