ABC #15 - Mai


#1

As promised, we’re going to be doing these a lot more regularly! I’m helping out quiche on these so he can fulfill his lifelong dream of judging. Due to the success of the recent Urien ABC #14, we’ve decided to continue with a series of character-based ABC’s. After putting it to a vote, the winner was Mai of SNK Fame.

Please PM entries to me.

Anyone who wants to compete just has to PM an avatar to me by Midnight EST on Thursday, 05/24/2007. The voting will begin on the following morning. This timeframe gives you just about two and a half weeks to come up with your av(s). Once I get all of the entries, I will post them and the judges will post their choices for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each category (still and animated). As always, scores will be tallied, and the winners will receive prizes.

**PRIZES:

ANIMATED**

1st Place:

1 figurine – Chun Li (from glgaz)
1 Digital sketch (from woof)

2nd Place:

1 month of premium (from givequicheachance)
1 Digital sketch (from rook)

3rd Place:

1 Ken cell phone cleaner (Yes, it really does clean your screen, from glgaz)

STILL

1st Place:

1 figurine – Mai (from glgaz)
1 Digital sketch (from woof)

2nd Place:

1 month of premium (from givequicheachance)

3rd Place:

1 Ryu cell phone cleaner (Yes, it really does clean your screen, from glgaz)

I will be happy to add prizes in if anyone wants to contribute. If you would like to sponsor ABC #15 PM ME.

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 avatar 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!

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 avatar public until I unveil them.

3: No one is allowed to wear an avatar that has been submitted in the competition until AFTER the voting is completed.

4: One avatar per category per artist, please. This means you can each enter one still avatar, and one 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 avatar 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.

#9

Can we have judges who have actually made an avatar judge this time?

IE: Not repeat the Free incident.

>_<


#10

…or maybe have them review any of the previous ABCs to see if they can judge fairly. Also, they have to comment on every entry and say what they liked and didn’t like.


#11

We’ve been doing exactly that. Each of the judges posted have reviewed a past ABC and then quiche and I approved them based on their reviews. We’re screening each of them. If they don’t mind, I can post their reviews for you to look over and you can voice any concerns you might have.


#12

i’m a judge! woooooot. Now accepting bribes (seriously…or am i?).


#13

Are nude mugen Mai edits allowed? Doesn’t seem wrong with her at all.


#14

True.

Wait that’s what I suggested in the previous ABC.

My old age is getting to me, I need to gets meself a rocking chair.

:sad:


#15

perfect!
…nah, no need to post their reviews if you guys cleared them already.

This ABC is going to be awesome!

PS.
boobs!


#16

bewbs.


#17

i’m assuming porno includes hentai.


#18

I just said nudity. it is Mai afteralls.


#19

no you freakin moron

damn


#20

Depending on how many entries we get, I might just critique my top three in each category first and then critique the rest of them. You see, my avatar reviews are about a paragraph long, each, at least. It would take me forever to get them all done at once.

I assure you though, my decisions will be fair and just.
