Welcome to a new era of...
Iron Avatarist

The judges in this Iron Avatarist contest...

(Final lineup subject to change - If any of you want to draw instead just let me know!)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Our theme this month is...
Art of WAR

War? HUH! What is it good for? Drawings!
Conflict and struggle, for sport or dominance, survival or blood lust, lets see it in stick form. All war is up for grabs, any era, any combatant, or a mix of both. Everybody was kung fu fighting!

Remember: All artwork must be your own. Do not take, alter, or use any of the The Giant's art. Thanks.

Categories
There will be a First through Third place award for each of the following:

Best Warrior (any avatar-sized character)
Best OotS Warrior (any avatar sized, Order of the Stick/D&D based submission)
Best Opponents (any two beings locked in combat)
Best Battle Scene (anything larger than the above)
Best Rookie Entry (if this is your first contest all your entries automatically fall under this category, along with the main category)
And, as always, the Best Overall award.

I'll also voice my opinion on which entry is the most kick-awesome in the form of a VT's Choice Award, which may be anything that tickles my fancy or was shamelessly tailored to my tastes (I approve of shamelessessness).

Rules
1. Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.

2. Every entry must include an itallic introduction as to what your entry is.

For example:
Best Opponents
Yoda versus Hitler
<image>

3. Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.

4. All entries must be posted by June 30th at Noon Eastern Standard Time.

Good luck!



Edit: Notice

Ok, been messaging a few, but for those of you who are planning to submit, a Warrior is not just an adventurer that just happens to be wielding a weapon, a monster, or someone making a face.

I didn't want to draw that line, but unless I do any drawing is being submitted as 'a warrior'. The glow of enlightenment becomes an aura of holy smiting. A kiss becomes blood sucking. A hand raised in greeting a fist raised in victory. A bratty kid scowling can kill with his gaze.

No.

If it wasn't intended originally as a warrior or engaged in combat, it doesn't become so by entering it here. Now, if you like, feel free to alter it slightly to make it so. I have absolutely no problem with that.

Hope I'm not taking too much fun out of this, but we needed parameters.

Does it have to be a war in armies? Or can it be like two super-powered like people fighting and whatever?

Phase
2010-05-21, 02:07 AM
The rules state it can be any battle between more than one person.

Although I assume a clone war is allowed as well.

Any kind of battle you like.

That's why we have 3 basic categories.

Single Warrior.
Duelists.
Battle (more than 2).

Please put the categories and titles on every entry.
And a reminder: avoid spoilers. Some screen stretching is preferable to spoilers. If it's so big that the stretching is extreme, consider reshaping or shrinking it.
While I'm at it: don't quote images.

Ya know, for me it isn't about winning. It is about entering and getting people to notice something interesting I have done. If you turn back you clock to the Fine Art competition, that is the first Iron Avatarist I really got into. During that one, I unleashed what I thought was the masterpiece to end all master pieces (a small bit is used in my signature). There was a huge number of positive comments - Judges had things like: that is amazing!. Did it win? Nope, didn't even make the top 3 in its event - some very talented people unleashed some really amazing stuff. Did I mind. Nope. That competition is still the highlight of my Iron Avatarist career, not because of any categories I won, but because of how people fed off of each other's progress and realy cranked up the competition. When I submitted my piece, I am pretty sure I had the thing won, no problem... but that just pushed other people to try a bit harder and it REALLY allowed people to create some great stuff. Everytime I submit, I am hoping that it will trigger a similar effect; because winning is ok, but seeing someone pull something way cool out of their hat is awsome. So, Don't give up. Just submit what you got. Tweek the style a little if you need to. Look and polish doesn't always trump content. Now, I do have one more thing in mind for this one that I am surprised noone has submitted yet, we will see if I can get it produced in time.


And to be honest, I don't think I have necessarily submitted the best avatar in this competition. Sure I have a couple of mine I am partial to, but there is a lot of good work going on.

HHmmmm, looking at this, I think I might actually have an artist's personality (I am a programmer by trade).

Was going to make mention of that, yeah.

If they are races/creatures/classes etc from D&D they go in there. If it's just medieval I leave it up to you. You decide which you prefer it to be in.

Personally I prefer "Best Oots" to be limited to things involving characters and/or creatures specifically from the comic. Eh, up to you *shrug*

The people complaining about how "there's no point entering now" or somesuch: We have been very worried about rates of entries lately. Back in the day, contests could reach 6 pages or more. More recently, we're lucky to get to 3. So when people start saying "well why should I enter? It's not like I'm gonna win..." I just about want to cry.
This contest is meant to be about fun, creativity, and both exercising and displaying one's skills. The prizes are nothing but a motivator. So qwitcherbitchin and start illustratin!

Felix is from the Golden Sun games, and Toph is from the Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon. Toph's hair was insanely more easy than I thought, although my curse of always missing something seems to have struck again (the yellow/beige part of Toph's headband, this time).

I also made an icon for myself out of this, since I worked more-or-less left to right and without Toph it really did look like a crit fail.

My general response, in this contest at least, to having someone post something awesome is to go. "Well, now I need to think of something more awesome! Wheee!"

It actually helps me improve, too. I just see it as a great big drawing exercise with lots of other people and the vague possibility of prizes at the end. :smallbiggrin:

Anyway, I have two questions to ask.

Vorpal Tribble, supposing that you were a supervillain, what sort of minions would you employ?

Serpentine, if you got in a fight (and you were your avatar), what sort of weapons would you use?

No pandering to the judges here! No way! That would never happen!

@Serp: If he is really a rookie, than it is the most badass rookie entrie I've ever seen.

@MReav: Maybe if BE could finish his attack, we would see that. But unfortunately, that is beyond my power to reproduce. Or more precisely, I could do it, but it could be easily jossed by Thunt. But it adds to the cliffhanger of the scene. Other arguments on the Goblins thread, please.

@Hyoumu Yau: That was the Bakka Chikka IA, and I think you are talking about this post (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7809380&postcount=27). Which is really awesome, and deserved to be the winner.

The single reason this took so long. I started a background, hated it, scrapped it, sat on my hands for a week trying to decide what to do, decided 'screw it', made a crappy background.

I'd like to see you try the effect in Endless Repetition... I see what you're going for, but it looks... underwhelming, as is.
Best Warrior, Best Opponents and Best Rookie Entry. (Im optimizing my spread here. Not sure if even half of that is correctly applied. >_> )Only one category per entry, plus Rookie. I'd go with Best Opponents, or possibly Best Battle Scene. Probably the latter, as it has more than two figures.
Anyways, welcome! Good stuff! :smallbiggrin:

I must say the only complaint I have about it is the headpiece.
I dunno why, but instead of looking like the eagle headpiece, it looks to me like a cap with feathers.

Still, nice work.

Ignore the critic (whose work is better than mine) I love it! Even though that was what I was working on... one more idea that hopefully noone will grab.

That's where the Friendly Mathematician thing comes in. Shattered Glass is crazy backwards lands, see? Math Megs leads a guerilla band of research students, hippies, pacifist martial artists, and computer programmers against Purple Prime and his army of off-colour Autobots.

Optimus Primal, on the other hand, actively turns into a gorilla.

I have also removed a particular peice to re-build it to proper working specs. I have a plan, now, my mind came ablaze as I hauled water back and forth this afternoon at work, and the only obstactle is procrastination and Monster Hunter Tri.

Stepan: Please avoid using spoilers. Even when there's a bit of screen-stretch, we prefer that to spoilers. Also, you're still a Rookie, right? Make sure you note that on every entry. Make sure you delete the old version of that scene, too. Lookin' good, anyways! :smallbiggrin:

Domochevski: Please put the categories on every entry, not just the top of the post. Also cool.

People explaining about Shattered Glass Megatron: I know, I read it. But he looks extra friendly - even Good Optimus doesn't look that friendly.

Can I make a small request of the judges? When you announce the winners, will you pretty please show the winning entries in the announcement posts next to the trophies? With so many pages of entries, and so many entries per post, it will be awfully hard to remember otherwise.

*just realizes how hard it must be as a judge to go through all the entries* :smalleek:

Serpentine
2010-06-18, 03:35 AM
That's pretty much what my Hall of Fame is for. I just haven't updated it for a contest or two...

Elder Tsofu
2010-06-18, 03:40 AM
Maybe you could make the trophies as links to the image - so when you click on a trophy you see it?
Just for the lazy ones, and it wouldn't clutter up the post either.

Serpentine
2010-06-18, 03:48 AM
For purely selfish reasons, I'm agin' that. The formatting for the Hall of Fame is already fiddly and time-consuming. Having to get rid of the URLs would make it that much harder. Although on the other hand, it could also save on having to scroll through the contest to find the right image... Hmmm...
If the entries are put with the prizes at the end of the contest, I would start nagging to have the formatting just so, for the same reasons.

2010-06-19, 12:17 AM
Choose one. I think either would be fine, see which one is lacking in entries perhaps.
If an entry has multiple categories, we each pick which one we think is best. We don't communicate with each other during voting. If we all choose a different one, your vote will be split, and you're less likely to win.
I like your style, by the way.

Thank you.
To add a bit more: Spoilers are annoying to judges trying to judge. It is annoying to the Hall of Fame compiler trying to sort through a whole thread looking for the award-winning entry.
I am both. I get a double-whammy of annoyance. Please avoid using spoilers.

Well, my 1680x1024 screen rarely stretches. It was annoying though when a whole page stretched on my 1024x768 because of one post. Not when it stretched a bit, but when I had to scroll to read a whole line of text. (i.e. someone posted an image more than ~1000 pixels).

Serpentine
2010-06-19, 10:07 PM
Normally, yeah, of course it's really annoying. But here, having to check every spoiler for an entry is much more annoying than a bit of stretch. As we're the ones deciding who gets prizes, you might wanna avoid annoying us.
