Hey guys, JR here and I'm gonna try something that hasn't been done in a while. For those of you who aren't aware, the Friday Night Fights is a character design contest style tournament that takes place each Friday (hence the name). Jeff and Kaldath have both done a few contests but we haven't had one in 2 years due to a bad turn out with the last one. But for a pessimist I'm pretty optimistic (why do you think I'm posting this on Friday 13th) and I think we can actually get enough people to make the idea work again.
So, what actually happens. Well, I need at least 8 people as a bare minimum to make this work and 16 as a maximum. There will be 4 rounds (provided we get more than the minimum 8 people, otherwise there will only be 3 rounds) each with a different theme. Each entrant needs to design a character based on each theme and submit them all before the FNF starts. The first round will be a qualification round if we don't get 16 entrants, where the creators of the top 8 images will advance to the next round, where they will be randomly placed into pairs and the tournament starts, so one creator facing off against another in a head to head contest and the winner advancing to the next round until we have an overall winner for the whole thing. I'll be bringing back polls for this contest, so each round will be voted for by you guys, so there's no judges deciding who goes through or who wins each round. Everything clear so far? If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.
Now the important stuff. Rules and entry requirements:
- You can only submit one entry for each category, so only four pictures from each contestant.
- Your entries must have been made for this contest.
- Each entry must be names thus: Creator- Character Name- Category
- All entries must be sent by email (all four pictures in one email please, to save confusion) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 1st June. Any entries submitted after that will be ignored.
- No backgrounds. Characters only.
- Please do not post your entries on the internet before you are eliminated or the contest is over.
And with that, the categories:
Week 1- Modern (Normal people)
Week 2- Fantasy (Paladins, Mages, Dwarves, Elves, Trolls, Orcs etc.)
Week 3- Sci-Fi (Aliens, Spacemen, Cosmic Beings etc.)
Week 4- Superheroes/ Supervillains
And with that, JR out.
