Animal Crossing: New Leaf Miiverse Drawing Event Launches!

Over the past year, we’ve seen some fun events from Nintendo surrounding Miiverse and Art Academy: SketchPad—notably, the art contest for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and various events for the Year of Luigi. The most recent event to open up is an Animal Crossing: New Leaf drawing contest, despite the fact that this particular game was released last summer. But who cares? The game is still going strong, so perhaps this event is more timely than it seems at first thought.

In this drawing event, fans are encourage to show off their love for the game by drawing an Animal Crossing picture based on their favourite month of the year.

Here are the rules, from New Leaf director Aya Kyogoku:

The theme is “The Four Seasons of Animal Crossing.” I want you to draw an Animal Crossing picture based on your favourite month of the year!


  • Pictures must be drawn using Art Academy: SketchPad which is available for purchase in the Nintendo eShop.
  • Pictures must feature at least one character from the Animal Crossing series.
  • Entries are limited to one original work per person.
  • Comment on this post to submit your entry.
  • Please specify which month you have drawn in the comment field.
  • Drawings will be chosen by Nintendo based on the skill, artistic expression, originality and creativity of the author.
  • We will choose our favourites from the entries. We may share your drawings outside Miiverse.

The event will end on Mar. 16 or after there are over 1,000 comments, whichever comes first. We will choose our favourite works representing each month, and after reviewing, we will announce them in this community.


You’ve got a few weeks to get your entries together on this, so if you’re interested, get working on those masterpieces!
