Avatar Challenge Battle - signups open


#1

Avatar Challenge Battle - signups CLOSED

OK…so I gather that these have been done here before, but not in a while.

Here’s the plan. Anyone who wants to compete just has to PM me an avatar some time in the next week. Once I’ve collected all the avatars, I’ll post 'em in a poll, and people can vote on whichever one they like best.

The winner will receive a smalll cash prize via paypal (around $5 unless someone else contributes) and will also get to pick his/her favorite av of the ones entered and wear it.

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.

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

3: One avatar per artist, please.

4: The avatar must be within premium-size requirements. That means the maximum size is 160 x 100 and 48.8 kb.

5: No screen names are allowed in the avs. Phrases, slogans, etc. are okay.

6: No pornography or innapropriate material. You guys know this…

If anyone is interested, sign up here, and PM me your entry in the next week. If not enough people sign up, I’ll pocket the $5 and buy a sandwich.

FOR THOSE OF YOU TOO LAZY TO READ THE RULES IN FULL, DO NOT POST AVATARS HERE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE! PM THEM TO ME, AND I WILL POST THEM AT THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK. POSTING AN AVATAR HERE AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIES IT FROM THE COMPETITION!

…seriously.

I predict someone good with animation [OC?] will win this.

Can’t remember the last time we had an avatar battle. I’m in.
EDIT: When’s the exact due date?


#3

I’m thinking of starting it either monday or tuesday of next week. Getting it in to me Sunday by midnight should be a safe bet, but all take all entries up to the time I start the thread.

…seriously.


#4

I’m in.

EDIT: Here’s mine.

Did you even read the rules, DG? If you show it before the battle begins next week, it’s disqualified.

I love ya and all, and that’s a hot av fo sho, but I can’t bend the rules just yet…PM me a different av to use…

…seriously.

Okay. I’ve decided to start the competition on Tuesday morning (bright and early!) as Monday is a holiday (here in the states, anyway).

So for those of you who haven’t PM’ed me your entries yet (and let’s face it, only one person has so far) get them to me BEFORE TUESDAY MORNING!

I’ll be posting the poll at 6:30 am (or so) my time, (GMT - 7:00).

…seriously.


#11

PM sent so I guess I’m in as well :smiley:


#12

Bumpitty.

Due to severe lack of interest (it’s the day before the contest, and only 3 peeps have sent me their entires) I’m postponing the Avatar Battle Challenge (and trying to rustle up some more contestants)

It will now be held 1 week from today, on Monday, 9-12-05.

For those of you who have already submitted avatars, if you decide you’d rather enter a different one, just pm me the new one.

…seriously.


#13

i try to tell you if i gave people ideas for av’s they mite enter :rolleyes:


#14

feel free to pm ideas to whoever you want shatta.

Just know that the artist is gonna get that fat $5 prize if it wins, not you.

…seriously.


#15

if i was doin it for the money i’d be in the street in a thong wearin high heals :rofl:

but it’s well understood ,gqac :tup:

\m/(>.<)\m/

Pics Please.


#17

Fine I’m in. Set a theme at least. That way it’ll be easier to judge and at least more fair.

OC


#18

Hmm…good idea, but I don’t wanna be a dick to the 3 people who’ve already submitted entries. Well, in the interest of fairness, I’ll set a theme that their avs already fit into.

Does anyone have a problem with a theme of 3S? The av has to have something to do with 3s (i.e. a character, move, or location from 3S).

…seriously.


#19

3s is fine.


#20

well if anybody needs some ideas just pm me. other than that i’m eager to see what the avs will look like![/IMM fanboy]
