A New Year, A New Avatar Competition: ABC X


#1

Welcome to Avatar Battle Challenge X!

Yes, in a bold campaign to appeal to the youngsters, the contest has dropped its traditional arabic numerals in favor of the more “with it” letter “X”. It’s X-treme!!!

The rules have changed! This is a new year, and a new contest. Please read things over, as they may be different from what you’ve seen before

For starters, deadlines are different. These contests are now monthly, so you have lots of time. Since these take place once a month now, I expect more participation. Of course, since the contests are now less frequent, the prizes will be better.

Anyone who wants to compete just has to PM an avatar (or two) to me by THE END OF THE MONTH. Here’s how it works: The last day of any given month is the deadline. The unveiling/voting will then take place on the first WEEKDAY of the next month. For example, the 31st of this month is a Tuesday, so the voting will begin Wednesday morning. If the last day of the month falls on a Friday or Saturday, the voting will begin the following Monday.

Judging will be the same, but I’ve found it works better with more judges, so I’m going to be asking for a bunch of judges. **If you would like to judge,


PM ME

Themes will be another story. Since theme seems to be the deciding factor in whether or not some people enter the competition, there will be three themes. You may pick any 1 theme, or any combination of themes you like.

Here are the rules:

1: It must be a new avatar. Do not PM me an avatar that people have already seen, or you will be disqualified. This means that you are not allowed to show the av around before the battle starts in a week. They should all be unveiled simultaneously at the start of the comp. (Because there was a problem with kensavenge at one time, I guess I have to clarify: Only submit your own work. That means an avatar that YOU MADE, dummy!)

2: No artists are allowed to reveal to anyone which avatar is theirs. Any artists caught leaking such information will be disqualified. Of course, some styles are recognizable, so some judge recognition is inevitable. You may bounce ideas off of someone, but please do not make the av public until I unveil them.

3: No one is allowed to wear an av in the competition until AFTER the voting is completed.

4: One avatar per category per artist, please. This means you can each enter 1 still avatar, and 1 animated avatar. Minor animation may be accepted in a still avatar, but it’s completely at my discretion.

5: The avatar must be within premium-size requirements. That means the maximum size is 160 x 100 and under 50 kb. Feel free to make anything smaller than the max if you like.

6: No pornography or innapropriate material. You guys know this…(Swearing is A-Ok!)

7: You can submit as many times as you like. That means if you submit an av on Saturday, and then change your mind and decide to submit a different one on Monday, go right ahead. You can make revisions, changes, or just enter a completely different avatar. I’ll use whatever one you send me last. Just make sure you have your final submission in to me before the deadline.

:cybot: - O Rly?


#4

Quite.

There are 3 themes this time, and you can choose any 1 theme, or any combination of the 3.

Is there a problem with the themes themselves?

…seriously.


#5

NEGATIVE.

Choice of selection is FINE.


#6

ya rly.

hell naw. i was meaning “O Rly” in a good way. im just hoping that people can wear the av’s by then…:rolleyes:

negro edit:
IMO, i think 1 more rule should be added…anyone who uses sprites or pics of Robo Ky and/ or Napolean from GG Isuka is automaticly disqualified

why? they both fit under the themes way too easy.


#7

hmmmmmmmm


#8

XTREMEEEEEEEEEEEE


#9

chunkness of funkness.

OC


#10

nice!


#11

I don’t think so.

I don’t disqualify avatars for fitting within the theme, they get disqualified for NOT fitting within the theme.

…and by the way, it’s Leopaldon, not Napolean.

…seriously.


#12

it’s po-ta-towned!:lol:

i wasnt serious.


#13

Man, I haven’t opened PS since the last ABC I entered.
Haven’t honed up my skills :sad: but count me in anyways.


#14

Chinese Narrrator:

And so, the Fireworks Sword of Bear Ryoma was drawn out and held it high and cried:

Hona!..Ikimase…
(Come on…let’s get started)

and with that, Bear walked out of the garden. More destructive than ever…then he went over to get a Snickers.


#15

i’ll be thereeeeeeeeeeeee
i got invitedddddddd
so i’ll be thereeeeeeeee

i’ll be thereeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


#16

So fuckachunkz basically means we can do whatever the hell we want for this, right?

Maybe I’ll finally get around to entering one of these ><;


#17

Umm…no.

Fuckachunkz might be the most strict theme we’ve had yet.

For more info…ask OC.


#18

I’ll get in on this. Now that finals and holidays are over, I’ve got a bit more free time.


#19

Watch there be only ONE particapate. I might get in on this one just for the experience/ridicule. Especially since my favorite game is one of the themes.


And Quiche just when I was getting over the horrible bed wettin’ nightmares of the QUICHE LADY you bring her back!? You Cruel Jew.
