Recently-created contest post hyper-combo finish!
After a one year hiatus, I'm back to spend more of my hard earned cash on you peoples. Miyabi's Legendary Rockman Valentineís Day Fanart Contest Never Dies!! (Donít think Iím gonna get 10 dozen strong on that oneÖ ;D )
As in the past, there will be two categories, one that focuses on humor, and one that focuses on talent. This gives you two chances to submit something and win. And once again, these categories were voted on by my deviantART watchers.
I'll still give you guys the option of picking your prize, so the grand prize winners of each category will be able to choose the prize of their choice, at $40 USD or less. Still haven't gotten a standard Bandai D-Arts X or Kotobukiya Zero? I should be able to foot the bill for it. UDON Megaman Tribute? Sure thing. Got something else in mind you've wanted to get from eBay, but haven't had the cash? I'll do what I can. Want a year subscription to dA? It's yours. As long as it's under $40, it's game. A cash prize through Paypal is also an option.
To go along with that, I have a few Rockman.EXE Xebec production artwork sketches available to distribute. They are from the first season. The choices include one of Blues, Netto, Enzan, Yaito, Devil Roll, and a small army of Metool/Biree viruses. The first place winners have the first choice at one sketch, to have their own piece of the animated series:
The second place winners of each category will be next in line to choose one sketch. They also will receive their choice of a 3-month dA subscription or an Archie Comics Megaman Graphic Novel.
The third place winners will be the last to choose one sketch. And Iíll probably throw in some random Link Battlechips for good measure.
Two categories; you are allowed to enter in both if you would like. If you place in one category, you will be automatically disqualified from the other, for reasons of fairness (and to give other people a chance to win a prize).
<b><u>CATEGORY 1: MEGAMAN DATING FORCE (Humor)</u></b>
Itís been a rough year for Megaman when it comes to new games. Letís face it, we all are hoping Capcom will do something different with the character, rather than repeating the same old formula over and over again. So, letís pretend that the next Megaman game they plan to create ventures into new territory: a dating sim. Your goal for this category is to show us what this dating sim would look like. What do you have to say to get a Robot Master to go out with your character? What gift would you get a NetOp who has fallen for you? Will a marriage between you and your Navigator co-worker keep your bonds strong, or cause disruption when you are just trying to do your job? How do you woo a hot, single mother whose astronaut husband mysteriously vanished in space years ago and has yet to come back home?
Draw a screenshot, a game cover, make a flash, whatever youíd like, as long as it fits with the dating sim theme. Your humor can push the limit a bit, but try not to get too dirty. While there are more mature aspects to relationships, this is not a contest for a porn sim. This theme will work as the humor category, so the judging will focus on the wacky, zany content you come up with.
<b><u>CATEGORY 2: RIBBONS AND LACE (Talent)</u></b>
Ribbons, lace, and frilly things have always been synonymous with romance. They can also be really tough to draw! According to history buffs, the relation goes back to the days of the Middle Ages, when knight(man)s battled in tournaments, ladies would tie their scarves or ribbons around the arm or lance of the knight that they favored. So put in every ounce of your strength to draw some Megaman characters decorating for the holiday with their love or dressing up in some exquisite ribbons and lace for their significant other.
The only prerequisite is there must be at least one ribbon or something lacy in the image. Again, nothing dirty. You can be a little risquť, but no blatant nudity is allowed. This theme will work as the talent category, so the judging will focus on the work and effort you put into your piece.
<u>SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: </u>
- Only submit your own work, as usual. Any character, major or minor, from any series is allowed. Having characters from multiple series are totally allowed. Again, to be fair to all, same-gender groupings are allowed. Humans and robots and reploids and servbots and computer programs and viruses and alien AM/FM beings, etc. all deserve their chance for some lovin', without prejudice!!
- Participants are allowed to submit from all over the world. Itís easier for me to get prizes to US entrants, because international shipping is complicated and pricey, but Iíll do what I can for you guys who arenít in the States. In some cases, Paypal might be the best option for your winnings.
- Entries do not need to be colored, but it is preferred.
- Please keep all your entries appropriate for most ages. No nudity or extremely suggestive sexual content. No, this is still not a Valentine's hentai contest. Lingerie or skimpy man briefs: I'll allow it. Nekked ladies showing the world what they got: I'll definitely look at them, but they will be disqualified until they get covered up.
- Entries can either be e-mailed to me at <b>rock2125[at]hotmail[dot]com</b>, or you can just PM/note me a link to your pic.
- DO NOT post your pics in this thread, in your fanart threads or dA galleries until the contest is over. This is the fairest way for competitive reasons. I prefer to keep them all secret until the deadline has passed.
- I'll edit a confirmed entry list in this thread when I receive them. So you won't be in the dark about whether or not I've received your entry.
The deadline for this contest will be <b>Tuesday, February 14th, by midnight CST. </b> This gives you about a month to get something drawn.
<u>MISCELLANEOUS INFO: </u>
- As usual, If you don't plan to enter, but would like to help me judge, please let me know through note/PM or mention so in this journal. Thanks to all my usual judges, and Iíll gladly let you help with it again if youíre willing.
So, if you have any questions, feel free to let me know. Join in if you'd like and good luck to everyone who enters! The full results and all entries here: http://rockmiyabi.webs.com/VDay12.html Judges:
