The rules here are pretty similar to the last one, that worked out so well. New rules will be in bold for those of you that remember the rules from last time.
Anyone who wants to compete just has to PM an avatar to me by Sunday night (10/02/05). The voting will begin on Monday morning. That give you a little less than a week to come up with an entry. Once I’ve collected all the avatars, I’ll post them, and the 6 judges will choose their 3 favorites each, and rank them 1, 2, 3. Scores will be tallied, and the winners will receive prizes.
Best in Show: 2 months of SRK Premium membership
Best Animated Avatar: 1 month of SRK Premium membership
Best Still Avatar: 1 month of SRK Premium membership
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 last 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.
3: Shatterstar may NOT suggest ideas to you, as he is a judge, and it would help him figure out which avatar belongs to which artist.
4: No one is allowed to wear an av in the competition until AFTER the voting is completed.
5: One avatar per category per artist, please. This means you can each enter 1 still avatar, and 1 animated avatar. Minor animation is accepted in a still avatar (like a bit of glowing, as in the example below)
(Any moving characters or sprites, however, will make it fall into the “animated” category.)
6: The avatar must be within premium-size requirements. That means the maximum size is 160 x 100 and 48.8 kb. Or actually slightly larger than that, as long as SRK allows you to upload it as an avatar
7: No pornography or innapropriate material. You guys know this…
All avatars entered MUST contain a product of some sort that is being advertised. It can be a made up product, or a real one.**
Once again, all avatars must contain sprites. These sprites can be from any game, or be fanmade or edited sprites, as long as they’re sprit-ey.
Have fun with it! Here are a couple examples of animated ones:
…I don’t have any stills to show you, but you guys are pretty fucking creative, so get to it!
That is all. Good luck!
