on: January 22, 2007, 04:34:50 am
Hello hello everyone
The time has come you have all been waiting for.
The announcement of the duels and the first challenge.
Here is the duel chart:

Bottom half is only the list of challengers and their battle icons, not the duel matchups. For rankings and duels, refer to the top part of the chart
(for those who do not have a custom battle icon, feel free to post one for me to change.)

First Place: $25
Second Place: $15

Challenge 1: MONSTERS

Description:
Create an image of a monster or creature.
Size:
No bigger than 100x100
Colours:
No more than 32
Restrictions / Rules:
- Dont create a monster that already exists. You are allowed the general idea, such as werewolf, dragon, etc but dont make one that already exists in a movie, game, comic, etc. (Remember, creativity counts)
Quote from: EXAMPLE
Here's an example: you can draw a pheonix, and that would be fine, because a pheonix is not a trademark monster of any specific company or anything like that. the monster is based on mythology and has many takes. you CAN'T, however, draw something like a chocobo, that would be ripping off Final Fantasy.
-No posting in any of the forums for help. This will mean an automatic disqualification
Time:
2weeks
Submitting:
Do not post your image in this thread. PM me the link to your image
Judging:
Colour choice - if your colours are interesting, if you make good use of your colours
Quality - any stray pixels, clean lines, if it looks finished opposed to a rough sketch
originality - how creative it is, how much it breaks away from the standard monsters most are used to
technique - if there are different techniques used effectively, how well the techs are used in blending and texturing, more than just flat or pillow shading
overall composition - how well the image looks as a whole.

This challenge is left fairly open to interpretation and creativity so that you are able to use whatever techniques you are most comfortable with. This challenge is set simple for you to create an entry without much restrictions or rules to give you the best chance to move on. Each challenge will progressively get harder.

please do not update the chart anymore. The only images i will allow to be posted here, are updated battle icons. This way it keeps things simpler and cleaner, by just referring to this first post.

Challenge has ended

How almost-coincidental, MoD. My original icon was going to be a banana until I realized it looked like a curved penis.

Damnation....

Watch your back, The. You're going down...

Damn, damn, damn...

Hah hah! Actually I'm quite nervous...But I must call upon my boiling, barbaric Aztec/dirty, Texican blood to thrash you about, and feast on your lifeless body like the carne' on my burrito!! Only then, will I earn the status of the honored Jaguar Warrior!!!

Seriously, though, this is going to be frickin' hard...

Good luck to you, and everybody else. Now shake hands and fight fair.
my back hurts...

Hey, question:
If we submit our entry early will we be able to send in an update or even a completely different piece to replace the originally submitted? Or will the first submission have to be the completely final version.

Good luck to you, too, B.O.B.

May the best pixelist win.
