It's a new year, my fellow fans of the Megaist of Men. And while last year is probably a year most MegaMan fans want to forget, this year is hopefully one we'd like to remember. Now as many of you know, the Rockman X iOS game had a possible 25th Anniversary Logo attached to it. You know, this one...
Now there is no word on whether or not this is official, but needless to say it isn't doing much for a lot of fans out there. Personally, I think it's a bit lazy. I don't mind the design so much, but I think the color choices are pretty horrendous. However, it's not official and being that I don't have much artistic ability I probably could not design a better one. Or maybe I could.
Or maybe you could!
Thus brings me to the point of this announcement. In my humble & actually kinda arrogant opinion, we have a vast amount of talented artists here on RPM and across the other MegaMan fansites out there. The other mods and I have discussed this and we want to see what you can come up with for a 25th Anniversary Logo for our beloved franchise hero. Now for some rules!
- Members are allowed only one entry. However, during the course of the year they are allowed to change their entry if they think of a better design
- Entries can be submitted via posting on the official 25th Anniversary Logo Contest post that will be set up in the near future, via the RPM Oekaki Board, or via the RockmanPM group on deviantArt
- Hand drawn art and/or sprites are welcome. Be as imaginative as possible and try your best not to copy other people's work
- Entries that are pornographic or inappropriate will be admired, probably laughed at quite a bit, but then ultimately deleted and not allowed in due to being pornographic & inappropriate
- All entries are due in by October 31st, 2012
- Voting will commence on November 1st, 2012 and will last until December 10th, 2012
- The winning logo will be announced on December 17th, 2012. The winning logo will be displayed on the RPM front page on December 17th, 2012 for the entire year of the 25th Anniversary
- All contest entries will be saved in the Contests folder on the front page, as well as in the RockmanPM deviantArt group
Over the course of the year, the mods and I will discuss other options for prizes, as obviously we're not sure we can fully deliver due to us being a fan site and all. The main idea here is for some fun, some awesome art, and just something to do to celebrate our beloved hero's 25th Anniversary as best we can. There will be more to come on this as we have some time, but what I want is to hear from you. This is just a Protoman Blues idea right now, but I would like to try to involve everyone to the best of my ability, so please please please please PLEASE offer your input, your opinions, your ideas and anything you might like to see come from this.
Draw, MegaMan fans! For Everlasting Peace!
