★。・゜゜・。☆What is Bentō (弁当 or べんとう?)☆゜・。。・゜★゜
‘O-bento’ basically means ‘boxed-meal.’ It is a portioned meal of either takeout or homemade food often found as a lunch type meal in Japanese cuisine! The bento box itself ranges in variety of size and color from having several stacks with internal dividers made of plastic, a single tray made of disposable materials, or in the more customary lacquer ware decorated with beautiful traditional motifs. They can come with a small bag or you can wrap it in a cloth with chopsticks! The whole idea of bento is to look attractive and artful… from the arrangement, presentation and garnishing to the coordinating color choice of the box, wrappers and utensils! The grand scheme is to look aesthetically pleasing to the viewer as well as provide a tasty meal!

I cant submit bentos with characters of famous franchise such pokemon or others?
Im not sure about this
"5. Please do not submit works that are drawn or contain any original characters"

what this means is you can only submit Bento box, Bento accessories, or homemade bento(food). People have been submitting clay art in the shape of bento box, hand drawn picture of bento, plushes of bento, etc. This is a Bento box, accessories and homemade bento only. It has to be made by you, the artist and it cannot be a picture of bento you found in a book, game, movie, internet, etc. it has to be personally owned, handmade, and photographed by you.

You may submit characters of famous franchise as it would fit into the 'chara-ben'/'kyara-ben' category. Pokémon, DBZ, Disney, etc is fine. What is meant by 'original characters' is personally created characters or fan-based characters made by you or another person. this would be too personalized and person who are not up to date on your story/character might not understand what that specific original character is. You are okay to submit a homemade bento with characters from famous movie, cartoon, series, etc... infact it is encouraged! Did this help???

Hello :D I want to say thank you very much for accepting me.
I have a question what if i don't exactly know in which folder my bento suits?
Reply
:iconcorselia:
Your welcome! You don't have to worry about which folder to submit into because you can only submit your work into the "feature" folder. Your deviation will be featured there for a while until i go in and place it into the appropriate folders. It may be in one or more folders after it is moved but it will always show in the "all submissions" folder. When you submit your works please make sure to read the submition rules as there are some works that are not allowed in the gallery. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask!

Hi ^.^ I would like to know what I should do for my first time making a bento. Ive always wanted to make one but I never got the chance, but now I do! So now im not sure what to start with haha

for first timers i would suggest just starting with basic stuff like arrangement. Getting a feel for organizing and arranging your bento, using nutritious foods with the 5 colors (black, white, green, red, and yellow), making sure to separate certain foods to prevent spoilage. You want to have fun and just play around with making your first bento so it gives you an idea on how to start, what is easy/hard, what takes the most time and what doesn't, etc. a great one you can start off with is from "cookingwithdog" on youtube [link] ofcourse you can alter the ingredients to what you have but its a step by step tutorial on how to cook for bento! Just play around see what works! XD course if you want to start off making a kara-ben i would suggest looking up examples and trying to immitate it. you can browse the group's tutorials or any tutorial on DA if you are looking to make something specific! making bento for the first time will take a bit... for me it took a few hours because i was figuring out what worked but just have fun with it! see what you come up with! if you have any questions one how to do someting in particulare just drop a note and i'll see what i can do for you!
