Pixelator: Round 3 RESULTS

on: February 28, 2007, 06:40:07 am
CULTURED FEMALES

current standings:


Challenge 3: Cultured Females
Description:
Create an idle animation of a strange cultured female.
Restrictions / Rules / Guidelines:
-Canvas size = 128 x 128
-There is NO frame count. However many you want
-Must be of a strange cultured female, ex: Dragon princess, dinosaur queen, android, mermaid (in other words, no regular cultures like japanese, french, german, etc. A new different culture, but has to still resemble a female human. With things like a mermaid, true the legs are replaced by a tail, but it is still recognizeable as a female human.)
-32 colour max. Pick your own pallete
-Must be of an idle animation
-No detailed backgrounds, and No transparency. Use 1 of your 32 colours as a solid background colour.
-Do not post in any other forums, keep your image to yourself until i post the duels
-Once you submit there is no changes / alterations allowed to be made after you submit.
Time:
2 weeks.
With these past 2 challenges, everyone has still complained about being pressed for time, so we will keep it at 2 weeks again.
Submitting:
-Do not post your image in this thread. PM me your entry.
-Again, I want 2 separate images. The first image is of your animated female. The second image, I want all your frames as stills. So however many frames all on 1 sheet, not animated.
Judging:
-Character design / originality
-Difficulty of character, ex: cartoony VS real, or simple shapes VS folds in clothes and muscle movement
-How fluid the animation is
-Personality of character, ex: is it a plain breathing motion, or does your character have something special in the idle animation that gives it its own personality
Deadline:
Wednesday, March14 - 7am GMT
(Find out the time conversion for your timezone)

If there are any questions feel free to ask, and ill answer them.
Best of luck to everyone
hopefully everyone will finish this round and understand the rules better.

   Rules easy to understand for me. I just hope everyone here has some type of means to animate something. I have a good idea of what I'm going to do already. However, I'm still afraid Mirre might have the slight advantage here. She's already posted a kick-ass mermaid, and is a woman herself. She has all the references she needs.
   No need to fear though, I thoroughly enjoy animations, and this will surely stimulate my chili pepper...
Step 1: references, references...Ah, yes! Mans best friend:...porn.

GOOD LUCK ONE AND ALL!! LET'S SHOW THESE FOLKS THAT WE DESERVE TO BE IN THE SPOTS WE EARNED PREVIOUSLY...

im looking forward to Bob vs Mirre.

Mirre on the one hand has the womaness and experience with drawing females, whilst BOB has amazing animation skills and a whole lot of fighter sprites in his portfolio.

So to sum the rules up, we need to make an idle animation for a fighter sprite featuring an anthromorphic (...cultured?) female character in a 128x128 canvas utilizing up to 32 colours and having no frame limit.
No backgrounds or transparent colours are allowed.
Is that correct?
Does scaling an image blur it?

I dont see anywhere saying it has to be a fighter sprite idle... you can be idle outside figthing games. apparently.
I really enjoy yellow.

Maybe there more than one people who don't know what cultured is so here's the definition :
"Well educated and with many cultural interests".

I learned a new word ; I'm becoming cultured ^^

Well if that's the definition of cultured, the examples and the criteria 'strange cultured' makes no sense.
Can somebody please give a definition of the word 'cultured' as it is used in the context with the theme?
Somebody like flaber?
