Creators Club Entries Closed (Again)

Hopefully for good this time.

Anyway, I'm no longer accepting entries for the Creators Club Poster for this year. If you haven't got your entry to me, that's too bad. Due to the circumstances, if/ when Stulte does get back to me I'll send over any entries I have to him so we can have a proper poster for this year with everyone in it. Otherwise, I'll try to have the poster up some time next week.

Thanks for your patience and co-operation with this, the situation wasn't ideal, but oh well.

JR out.

Character Design Challenge ♯160- Here Comes The Money

This week, your challenge is to create your own fictional currency using heromachine. You can do coins or notes, or, if you want to go down a different route, gems and similar valuable items that are often used a currency in games, so long as you show the value of the unit of currency you are entering (you don't have to compare it to dollars or anything like that, but putting a number on a coin or note would be a good idea).

As per usual, no limits on the number of entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

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. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Kaldath’s Corner: Teaching Myself Japanese!

japanese-hiragana-chart

Hello my name is Kaldath and I am here to let everyone know that I am an Otaku! Now like every good Otaku out there I have been interested in learning Japanese for a long time now and I have made some very small headway in that direction however my efforts have all been half hearted at best to be honest.  Japanese is a very hard language for a native English speaker to learn especially without the aid of an instructor or a native Japanese speaking individual to help you out!

Character Design Challenge ♯159 (Redesign) Winner

Ok guys, this week I'm actually struggling to pick a top 3. I've managed to get it down to a top 5, which was hard enough, so I'll do this Jeff style and run down my top 5 from this week and then announce the winner at the end.

The pictures will be in order of Original then Redesign for each person.

JReviews/ Anime Talk: Digimon

Hi guys, JR here again and once again I'm hijacking the Anime Talk title from Kaldath (you guys get 2 Anime Talks in one week, what a novelty). This is because next week is the release of the second part of Digimon Adventure Tri. Now, I'm sure people might remember that I did an Anime Talk on the first part of A3 last year and I, for want of a better phrase, lost my absolute mind over it. Of course I will be reviewing (read fanspazzing all over) the second part next week, but first I thought I'd do something I've wanted to do for a while and go over the previous Digimon series. All of them.

Anime Talk: Anime That Need a Remake!

Anime Remake

I recently saw an anime review on Youtube tackle this topic and thought that it would make a great discussion for our community. On this edition of Anime Talk we will discuss Anime Series or Movies that we believe need to be remade.

This is how this is gonna work. After the jump I am going to give you a list of anime that I personally think need to be remade and my reasons for it, and in the comments below I invite you to tell us what Anime you believe need to be remade and why.

Creators Club: Update

Hi guys, JR here.

Ok, so, quick run down on what's going on here. After the entries for the poster closed, Stulte (who was putting the poster together this year) and myself agreed on a timeframe for when the poster was to be finished and posted, which was to be the following week. Later that week Stulte emailed me and asked for an extension, as he wasn't able to work on the poster due to his not feeling well. I've since emailed him asking for an update and haven't yet received a reply. Now, as much as I don't want to have to do this, I feel it's unfair on you guys who entered stuff for this years poster if you don't get to see a poster, even if it's not the one originally intended, so at this point I'm going to take over putting the poster together.

Now, first problem with this is I don't have any of the entries, as they were all sent to Stulte. There are a few that have been posted on the forums and deviantart that I can get to easily but I think what would be best is for everyone to re-submit their entries (still within the original submission rules which I will post below). As I'm not asking for you to actually create a character this time I'm only going to give you guys a week to resubmit your entries, so next Tuesday (7th) is it.

The rules for submission are as follows:

1. Your entry must be in .png format. You must title it in standard contest entry style i.e. Username- Creators Club Poster (for example I would title mine JR19759- Creators Club Poster). Don’t screenshot the picture and send that in, export it as a .png please. If possible export it with a transparent background, because this makes putting the poster together easier.

2. You MUST include the text for your entry. Mandatory. This is incase Stulte needs to re-export any of the files in a bigger or smaller format. You can include it as an attachment in the email or just paste it into the email, but you have to have the text accessible.

3. Your email has to be titled something applicable to the Creators Club, so its easy to recognise as not-spam.

And if you could send it to me at jr19759@hotmail.co.uk

Sorry about this guys. At this point I want to get this done rather than have it sitting around not getting done. Thanks for the co-operation.

JR out.

Character Design Challenge ♯159- Redesign

Ok guys, for this weeks contest I want you to redesign or redo one of your old characters. Everyone has characters that they've done in the past and everyone should have improved since they did those characters, so let's see how much you have improved. Please bear in mind though, that to qualify you must include the original picture of the character you are redesigning. Oh, and obviously, only redesign your own character. It should be blatantly obvious, but just so there's absolutely no confusion.

As per usual, no limits on the number of entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
