Now, I’m very excited about this one.
For those of you who haven’t quite figured it out yet, this week marks the 200th Character Design Contest on the Heromachine blog, counting all of the contests hosted by Jeff, Hammerknight and myself. And, since the 100th CDC was a best-of contest, lets make this one the same.
The rules are simple. Each person gets ONE entry and one entry only. The original submission rules apply, so that’s the rules on file naming that were in place when Jeff ran the contests (which will be listed below). You cannot enter a piece that has won a contest before, or made it onto a poll, however, previous contest entries are otherwise allowed. Any entries that do not conform to these rules will be disqualified, and I’m going to be being very very picky about this. ALL the entries will be put into the poll for the week, I have absolutely no say in who goes on the poll, if you enter you’re guaranteed a shot at the win and the prize.
Now what is the prize I don’t hear you ask because I’m typing this in advance of it being posted. Well, in addition to the usual dblade patented Whiz Bang Item, your winning entry will be immortalised in the Heromachine Hall Of Fame alongside the best artworks produced by the greatest heromachiners of all time.
Oh, and just for the record, as I’m not judging for the poll this week, I’m gonna be entering. No prizes for guessing why I’m excited now.
Anyway, as I’ve already said, only one entry per person, and as usual the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please make sure you read the contest rules before entering, because it would suck to get disqualified from this contest. Have fun and good luck to everyone.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Please make sure your entries are named properly, because I’m not going to go and rename them all myself. If they’re not named properly, they just get ignored, I’m not even going to ask you to rename them, they just get skipped. I’ve made it plain enough, you don’t do it right, it’s your look out not mine. Them’s the breaks I’m afraid.
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine forums,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);
- Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
- Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
- Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.
