Miyabi's 2012 Rockman Valentine's Day Fanart Contest
« on: January 17, 2012, 03:55:16 AM »


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.

<u>PRIZES: </u>

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.

<u>RULES: </u>

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.

<u>DEADLINE: </u>

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!

A shout out to Miyabi, asking to judge for a third time.  I may even draw up a sample picture, just for the heck of it.

I wasn't even aware of this topic until today! @_@

I doubt I can get something done today with my busy schedule and errands I have to run. I'll see the winners are instead! I like to see what other people have come up with!

Contest is officially closed, and I should have gotten all the last minute entries saved. Of course if you don't see your name on the confirmed list and sent something, let me know.

Currently preparing everything for judging, hopefully will get that out to the judges by tonight. PB and Yllisos, I'll PM you when it's set. Thanks to all 17 people who participated, listed above. That nearly doubled participation from my other 3 contests, which never topped 10. So THANK YOU, regardless of where you eventually place.

One of these days, I really need to get around to working on this stupid little website of mine. Heck, I'm surprised my freewebs site is still active, seeing how they went through a rebranding in the 4 years it's been since I last logged in.  XD In any case, it gives me a place to post this year's results (although don't go looking for 2009 or 2010's on there yet).

The full results and all entries can be found in handy wannabe Classic Stage Select screen format here: http://rockmiyabi.webs.com/VDay12.html     

Overall, congrats to the following people for placing in the top three in their respective categories:

<u>Talent - </u>
1.) Tabby
2.) Silversteeldragunn (aka Sheep)
3.) Aquacapsak

<u>Humor -</u>
1.) General-RADIX (aka The Great Gonzo)
2.) Jecht-Striker + The Red Priest
3.) Bluddocean

All winners have been contacted, so check your dA notes for details!

Thank you to all who participated! Once again, without you, I wouldn't have had such a great, record turnout. It was a very close battle, and not a single person was voted into the same spot across the board by our judges. In fact, many ties were broken by the final judge. You all really made our decisions a tough one, and no matter where you placed, you should be proud of the work you put into impressing us. Sorry I can't give away something to everyone...if I was magically rich, I would try.     

Thanks again to my judges, linkfreak131, PB, Yllisos and Saito-kun for helping out this year! Hopefully we can have even better turnout next time!

Good game everyone. I totally feel you on the whole "everybody wants to hold a contest at the same time" feeling. That's part of the reason why the Auto project only got so far, next to starting so late in the game.

Maybe I should try finishing the Auto project for next time. =p

Oh, I just noticed, contests from the previous years, do not have menu options to go to the later years. In fact, 2010 and 2009 links go to 2008.

Which is why I said

and

...(although don't go looking for 2009 or 2010's on there yet).
:P

The last two days were the first I've even attempted new html for that site in 4 years, which is why the older ones haven't been updated. Both of those contests mentioned were posted here, and you can find them in the fanart section if you haven't perused them before. Although Imageshack just recently changed their rules, so that free users no longer have unlimited uploads, and just a mere 500. So my 5000+ images, including the contest uploads from previous years, will disappear from the web in another week or so. So that's another reason why I want to actually get them transferred and update my lil' site soon. It's nothing special by any means, and I'm no pro web designer, but hopefully at least some people enjoy seeing everything in one place.

Prepare to be bullied for necroposting. They won't say it nicely, but the date of a thread and its posts is really important. Welcome. :D

1) pretty sure that's a bot
2) if it is a bot, then you're the one guilty of necroposting, again. really, it's less bullying and more common sense.
