The official "Pirate Challenge" Sign-Up

on: September 11, 2005, 03:46:27 am
Pirate Challenge Sign-up post

This post serves as an introduction for the official Pirate Challenge, and as a space for you to sign up for the challenge. Signups will be kept open even after the challenge, so all you stragglers out there, feel free to sign up, someone will always need a partner!

1.0 - Description
1.1 - Date: Sept 19th – 9/19/05
1.2 - Time: As long as needed
1.3 - Size Restrictions: 180x145 : Template Provided to you ( right click, save-as to download )
1.4 - Color Restrictions: 18 or 32
1.5 - Style Restrictions
1.6 - Props
1.7 - Background
1.8 - Partners

1.0   – Description
This is the official Pixelopolis Pirate Challenge. The challenge will test users strengths in line-art, coloring, shading and scene creation. It will also force users to interact together to possibly create new friendships, or strengthen old ones.

1.1   – Date
We’ve chosen September 19th because it is annual pirate day.

1.2   – Time
The Event should hopefully run as long as needed for everyone to complete their work on their partner. Posting WIP’s is definitely encouraged in the WIP post of this activity, which is outlined in 1.8 of this document.

1.3   – Size Requirements
I’ve created a template which is 180x145, it has a border around it and a space at the bottom that MUST be used to come up with a creative name for your “pirate friend” and also so that you may place your signature if you’d like. The border color can be changed, but keep it dark in nature.



1.4   – Color Constraints
18 Colors no transparency if you are doing just a pirate, 32 colors if you want to fill the entire area, this is for your scene only, the template with bottom area has a 8 color restriction, and it would be preferred for you to use colors from your image in these areas to try and learn to conserve colors. You must use at least 6 colors in your picture.

1.5   – Style Restrictions
Once you have a partner, you must try and get to know them, feel for their style, look up some of their artwork, talk to them, see what they like, etc.. When creating your pirate you want to incorporate your partners traits into the picture. For example, Dogmeat is fond of dogs, so maybe your pirate for him would look like a dog! Other then that, use your imagination.

1.6   – Props
Your pirate has to have at least 1 prop, and an optional animal. Props consist of peg legs, eye patches, hook hands, scimitars, etc.. Animals would be like parrots, dogs, etc..

1.7   – Background
Background can be whatever you want, but you have to keep it in the theme of pirates and what not. Ships, beaches, digging up treasure, etc..

1.8 - Partners
Partners will be partnered together at random and a list will be compiled of all the people and their partners before the actual event starts.

The other rules are as follows:

HAVE FUN!!!!

Please keep this thread clean, only post if you are signing up, if you have a question, try looking at this post once more before asking. Thanks!

Ah hell. I'll give it a go. Sign me up.

Or not. I've got a friend flying in from Phoenix and staying with me; I believe that Monday is his last day... but if he is leaving early in the morning, then I'll stay on-board.

Update: Yeah, I'm out. My friend leaves Monday night. Perhaps I'll be part of the next challengs.

Correct, next monday bright and early I will throw up the post for the challenge with a compiled list of all the participants and their partners. I would suggest in the meantime to look up pirate stuff, references, etc.. whatever you want. Share them in this post if you'd like, just keep the chatter down to a minimum, cause I'm going to be pulling names off this topic.
