UPDATE: Contest is over.
I plan to animate the song, Video Killed the Radio Star [link]
featuring three new characters, one being my persona, Video, Radio, and Pictures.
Video, my persona was designed by me.
Radio, was designed by the amazing *Wyethcat
Ah-ha! But here's where Pictures comes in! I want one of you
to design her.
Pictures is probably older then both Video and Radio, and is also probably a jerk, I mean really, "Pictures came and broke your heart," defines Pictures in the song, and then they go dare blame it on Video, "put the blame on VTR." (Video Tape Recorder---I guess one of Video's full names?
) Your entry can be either male or female.
Annnnyyywaaaayyy~♥ There will be prizes!The winner will receive:
A simple photoshop pic like:
A full MS Paint and Photoshop picture like:
A journal feature!
Thanks to Wyeth!
And two runner-ups will both get a MS Paint picture like
I'm really hoping for entries, I think the prizes are good. ;w;Rules:
It must be a cat, like Video and Radio.
Use natural colors, something you'd see off of a cat off the street or one in your home. Maybe look up some breeds on Wikipedia. No neon colors.
Make it a nice reference sheet, and give a pallet sheet in it so I can get easy access to the colors when I animate Pictures. Look at Video and Radio's reference sheet if you'd like to get an idea.
Save it as a good quality file, like PNG, if you save it as something like a JPEG, I will hate you and sulk-*cough* It will be distorted and hard for me to get the correct color and it will have a much less chance of winning.
Don't give Pictures accessories, Video and Radio don't have them, why should Pictures?Guidelines:
Make it detailed, I don't want a plain brown cat or a silver cat with only three stripes on the entire body. If you are confident you can make it look really nice and still simple, go for it anyway, this is a guideline, not a rule.
Don't add bangs/fringe, Pictures will not have bangs whether you add them or not, I don't use bangs in my style. If you only draw cats with bangs, that's fine, and you can draw Pictures with them in your reference sheet, but Pictures won't have bangs in the video.
Have fun! This is just a contest for the lulz, I don't want you to be lazy, but enjoy making Pictures' design.
Fantastic! I will make a folder in my favorites for the entries!
I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Please enter!
Me and Wyeth will judge the contest together. The contest will end once I finish my Warrior Cats AMV. I'll post a journal when I'm almost finished with it so everyone will know the contest will end soon.
