Draw your Friends! XII

Videogames

(3/4 perspective wholly optional.)

Welcome to a new iteration of the Draw your Friends game/competition, the game/competition were you draw for a friend.

I'm one of your hosts, araveugnitsuga, you may call me Pink-Haired August.
Our other host, and founder of this game/competition is none other than The Grandmaster of Friendly Administration, Fin.

Info
The Guidelines

The game starts when we reach the 12 volunteers.
You may join by posting your desire to do so in the current thread.
If you participated in the last iteration you must repost in the running thread, posting on a thread that has undergone will not count.
You will be assigned a fellow volunteer to draw for through a PM by your respective host.
You have 7 days (168 hours from the moment a host posts that all PM's have been sent) to draw it.
You may draw in any style you wish.
The idea is to draw something related to your assigned playgrounder.
Any format is welcomed, from avatar to a giant watercolor image.
When you are finished you PM it to your assigned host.
Don't post the image here.

Extensions are permissible if you PM a host asking for it and a reasonable extended time-frame.
We'd much rather have an extension than late turn ins.


Themes
They are announced in the thread after the start of the competition.
They are sent again through a PM along with your assignment.
They are selected by both of your hosts, but suggestions are accepted.
They are entirely optional

The Workings

There are two phases.
On the "First Phase" you are assigned a fellow volunteer to draw.
The second phase is entirely optional.
On the "Second Phase" a host reveals all the images.
You may guess on who draw it and by whom it was drawn.
After two days such information will be revealed.


The Wishlist

You can only enter The Wishlist if you didn't participate in the previous round and the contest already has started.
If you enter the Wishlist you are automatically included on the next round.

PMs have been sent.

The Theme this round is:


Videogames
(3/4 perspective wholly optional.)

From JRPGS to platformers, going through generic FPS to generic TPS, strategy games and old school arcade fighting games. From the age old classics of Mario and Zelda, through the insanity of ATLUS games and onto the genericness of the last decade's Halo and Call of Duty 10n, anything is valid. Plays with perspective are predicted and faceless protagonists and heroic mimes are as well considered. Video games themselves, being a valid form of art are even accepted (and always have been and will be), not that anyone ever does one for this game.

The due date is:

August 14th 2011

Good Luck!

Mr_Saturn
2011-08-06, 09:13 AM

Each day that passes while DYF runs, before checking PMs I kill a puppy, it's just a good ol' luck ritual, before that it was foxes but they are now in danger of extinction. So the earlier they are in, the more puppies I have for the next round.

Also, done encouragement to the other participants to finish up while it is still the weekend.

Mr_Saturn
2011-08-06, 10:54 PM

THE SPEECH

Good geesh! Each round someone decides to completely mock my expectations, drag them through the ground and totally go over the bar. But this round... despite saying it in the theme description it completely out of the blue.

AN ACTUAL VIDEOGAME FOR VIDEOGAME ROUND!

Congratulations to Eleanor_Rigby for the "What the heck! It's awesome!" of this round. This is the award that is not normally mentioned (since it would imply personal bias) but this round it was the clear cut epic, mainly due to it being perfect for the theme.

As for the work in general, I found it rather entertaining, specially finding the references and seeing the different representations, most of them filled with colour, and actually with limited actual OoTS Style this round. I believe this round was more about creativity than complex drawings, which is good since a lot of very creative concepts have popped up and I can say it has a certain vibrancy to it.

I want to thank Teutonic Knight for the extravagant and INSANE! Snowman avatar which will forever remind me the torture through which ATLUS subjected me through several of their RPGS (just kidding, I love it!)

The next round is as always coming soon if it isn't delayed (and even then DNF eventually came out)



ORIGIN



Number|Game
1|Doom?
2|Street Fighter
3|?
4|Original (though it looks like THE SIMS)
5|ATLUS Mascot (Jack Frost)
6|Zelda
7|Mario
8|Age of Empires II?
9|Professor Layton?
10|Game&Watch
Bonus|Xbox Achievements
11|Pokemon
12|Rice Wind?

There are some made on guesses and some I know from the PMs.
Feel free to correct me please.

The "ATLUS Snowman" as you call him is called Jack Frost. He has a wiki page (http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Jack_Frost).

Also, thanks, and thank you Zefir.

Also also, Eleanor Rigby, Norton told me your file was a virus, and removed it. :smallfrown: Can you check if there's anything wrong with the file? I really want to try it now after what August said.

I do not know exactly how they called the adventure, but it was well known by the Discworld, as someone said here:)

I've not checked it myself yet, but I'll say I didn't attach a virus to it personally anyhow. :smallbiggrin: I can post a screenshot of the "game" later if it still seems dodgy, this is the first .exe I've posted online (or made, for that matter) so I don't know how it works well enough to know what happened there.

My initial hope was to recreate this in game form:


this is not comics part, only little fan for mi beloved flash game :)
who know this?

http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/076/3/f/memento_vs__sushi_cat_by_depresiveneko-d3bu46w.png

and this comics not death, i am only lazy and not have a right mood...

Obviously, I had to play a level or two of Sushi Cat to familiarise myself with the concept. For research, you understand.
...but I was pretty sure that figuring out how to do that would take me more than a week to achieve. In the end, the scripting including the layout and double jump all came down to the tutorial (http://www.emanueleferonato.com/2011/05/30/creation-of-a-platform-game-using-flashpunk-step-2/) I used: I mean, I typed it in myself and tested as I went along, but I can only really take credit for the graphic elements. (Teutonic Knight: my version is the same as the one at the end of the page except the walls are made of cake and the player is a sprite of Akrim.elf's character, Memento)
I would have liked to have changed it up a bit more than that: put some cakes in there she had to collect before a timer ran out or something, but alack, time and inexpertise got the better of me!

As for my gift... there's something nicely ironic about a (hob)goblin being the princess in the tower. For some reason Lilla Rigby looks really "80s" with those earrings, which is odd because Princess Peach doesn't give off that vibe so much to me. :smallbiggrin: I like the fact that her tower is so colourschemed with her hair and complexion too! Thanks, Obivion.

As for the trophy and achievement... I feel rather fraud-like given that all the "work" was done for me in the tutorial. :smallredface: The majority of the actual x-box achievements I've won, by the way, are of the sort you get for dying a specific amount of times in a particular way or for goofing around for prolonged periods...

Elder Tsofu
2011-08-20, 06:46 AM
I hadn't noticed it up till now - but people seem to enjoy drawing Lilla Rigby looking down at things. :smallbiggrin:

Eleanor_Rigby
2011-08-20, 07:00 AM
Maybe it's 'cause she looks a bit more innocent without the fangs?
Or perhaps, much like dogs, Lilla Rigbys can't look up?
It works out quite well for if I put the images in my sig and manage to align it so she's reading the credits though! Kasanip's portrait of her is an exception to the phenomenon. The only reason hers isn't in my sig is because reducing it doesn't do it justice, I have a print out of it on my wall though. I should probably experiment with making a cropped version for an avatar...

2011-08-24, 09:12 AM
Sorry, I didn't have time to do any guessing, and it looks like no one else had it either! I don't have access to internet 24/7 anymore and just started college classes this week. <__<

Thanks Ajadea for the picture! I think I was a little less inspired to make mine look videogame-like in a videogame setting. It just totally did not cross my mind.
