[official] Avatar Contest 28-10-2008

Post by Jalokim on October 28th 2008, 3:36 pm

Forumotion's Gallery Avatar Contest
28-10-2008


resource pack.rar||resource pack.zip


Its time for you ... yes you the members of forumotion, to help us. Our avatar gallery is seriously in need of a make over, with so many helping hands on the forum why not ask the members to do something??

The theory is simple... we need 30 new avatars for the avatar gallery. The graphics staff and moderation staff of forumotion's forum of the forums will be responsible for half of the avatars and the other 15 are member made.

Its time to take out your Photo.net and your GimpShop applications out of the closet and onto your monitor. We are looking for avatars with a forumotion feel... so we want greens and blues and oranges.
Everybody participating is entitled to download a resource pack which I have specially prepared for you guys. The resource pack consists of 4 images... two of them are the green monster, all redesigned by me. The other 2 images are a surprise... they didn't make the cut for the forumotion shop... so maybe they'll come to use here.

Every avatar has to be 150x200 pixels ... if you don't match these specifications your art won't qualify for voting. Your avatar has to contain at least one image from the resource pack... twist it and turn it how you wish as long as the forumotion accent is in the avatar.

the vitals in a pill:
Avatar size: 150x200 ONLY
at least 1 resource image must be used
We need it to use forumotion colors and style
Due date ... 2 weeks from now the 11-11-2008
max 3 avatars per member
No animated avatars


Contest ends 11-11-2008 ... all entries will be judged by the stunning staff of forumotion's help site.
The top 15 avatars will make it along with professionally made avatars of the gfx staff to the avatar gallery.
So in general your reward is having your avatar featured on the avatar gallery, so everyone can use it at any time.

Start posting your works now.
this thread will be a comment and entry thread. 11-11 remember...

Due to lack of sleep, I'll redo my first avatar, and post the whole set. Ignore the one below.

My first avatar:



http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/12/65/22/89/forumo10.png

OR



http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/12/65/22/89/forumo11.png

This is all one- Just can't decide which.

Nice entries guys... maybe try to cut down on text.
The main idea is to have the forumotion symbol on it, and the avatars have to appeal to many people... not just a group.

my current favorites are christos' orange one ... the others one are a bit bleak.
I loves solitudes ... thats what we need... something simple, that looks nice on this forum, although i'd edit the text...a more readable font ... same goes for christos, the stroke around the letters ruined it.


beno I like your concepts but there's too much going on... too much text, too much shadow.
yoyonaja also nice, and mex like the second one....

keep working guys... I'll try to post some of my concepts, so you can get a feel for what we need, I bet hellboy will leave somethign aswell.

try to use the shopmotion designs to help you...

Christos bear in mind i did it on gimp and have no idea how to use gimp lol.

@ jalokim if we cant add text then its just those images and a background so how can we make them unique? and i don't think the 2 images that are not the monsters are up to scratch I think they look very lazy and unfinished. so that only gives me a monster to work with

Cherry I said cut down on text ... not remove it.
Look at solitudes avatars... those are pretty much going to go to the avatar gallery.
They are simple, they have the right amount of text and the new green ones are easy to read.
She used all the correct resources and the avatars look grand.

Unfinished or finished... good quality or bad... a graphics artist hasn't got barriers like that. If you can't make anything out of those 2 renders then don't, theres no use in critisizing when others are using the renders just fine

I wanted to post a set... bbut since you are insisting cherry.

I really shouldn't react this way, I know how you feel ...I too was in a situation as you are now. As a young GFX designer, you don't see the possibilities of an image... no matter how bad.
As a experianced designer... as I am now...I now know, i can use any image to create what I want ... its a mark of a good designer... making nice projects out of junk

Cherry, the gimp is a good logiciel, it's more hard to use than photoshop but it's a verry good logiciel.

The bulk it's to participate, and to do that with enjoy, not for win (traduction car je crois que c'est nul : l'essentiel c'est de participer et de le faire avec plaisir)
