Welcome to...
Iron Avatarist

First, I'd like to introduce you to our judges...

(The final lineup subject to change.)

This week's theme is...

Anime/Manga

That means you will be drawing:
1. * * Anime/Manga characters in the OOTS style
2. * * Characters from the OotS universe cosplaying (dressing up) as Anime/Manga characters.
3. * * Characters from the OotS universe rendered in the anime/manga style.

And of course, there is going to be a First through Third place of the following:

Best Character
Best Group (>1 Person = Group)
Best OotS Character as a Anime/Manga Character
Best OotS Group as a Group of Anime/Manga Characters
Best OotS Character in Anime/Manga style
Best OotS Group in Anime Manga style

There can be only oneÖBest Overall award.

And, of course, the Rolandís Choice Award will go to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to my, admittedly whimsical, sensibilities.

There will probably also be a Super-Secret Guest Judge's Choice Award, which is exactly what it sounds like.

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

Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what your entry is.

To help judges who may be unfamiliar with the characters you present, you should include a link to an image of the character, if possible.

For example:
Best Character

(Gorbash's Avvy Image by LostInBrittany)

Reference Image (http://www.gorbashkazdar.com/BunnyGirlHaruhiReference/haruhi_bunny_guitar_set_up.jpg)

Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
However, you may submit old creations as long as they have never been entered into an Iron Avatar Thread before. *It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

All entries must be completed by Wednesday October 11 at 12 am EST. *That is Wednesday evening, Thursday morning at midnight U.S. Eastern Standard Time.

Naussica being the only real anime I've seen, I thus conclude that Gorby wins, for choosing the most awesome character from that film.

The top one is definitely Kakashi Hatake, the Copy Ninja (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakashi_Hatake), from Naruto.

I feel like I should know the bottom one for sure, but the best guess I have is Yatsuha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Samurai_Champloo_characters#Yatsuha), from Samurai Champloo.

Gah, anime. Something I know nothing about. Do we have to do specific anime characters, or can we just draw random anime people?
You can draw generic anime characters under "Best Character.". Or, you can do the OotS characters in anime style - there's a specific category for that (two actually - individual and group OotS).

Well, it went through a series of revisions before going here, so I guess it's not really my absolute first, if you want to be picky. And I was getting coaching and feedback from Earin at various stages during the creation process, but it is the first I've put up here.

Dispozition
2006-10-07, 03:07 AM
Heh...I though it looked a bit like Earin's stuff...It's good though. It's taken be about half a year to get my style out. I think I've finally hit it on the head though.

But yeah. Great stuff for a beginner (No offence intended).

[Ceika's the other demigoddess. Veera's the godess. I guess Ink is the God. And many more avatar makers. I don't know, maybe we should have some wierd hierarchy.]

Well we did have the A-Team and the B-Team...

I think I was in the A-Team, but I don't really remember.

Anyway, carry on with the crazy-awesome work.

Real life has been keeping me very busy (the joy of being a graduate student), but I found some time this evening to do some easy avatars:

Best Character - Astro the Robot

http://www.geocities.com/oblivion017/GiantITP/Anime/Astro.gif

Reference pic for the youngsters (:P):

http://www.geocities.com/oblivion017/GiantITP/Anime/AstroRobot.gif

Don't know if this qualifies as anime, but when I was younger, Astro, Transformers, the little witch that I don't remember the name (Mini Fťe in French) and other cartoons like that were the only japanese anime we had. That's why I put it up in this category.

Best Character - Neko from Trigun

http://www.geocities.com/oblivion017/GiantITP/Anime/TrigunNeko.gif

Reference pic (gnaaaaahhh):

I'm so sad I didn't had more time... There are so many good animes that I would have love to do... Trigun, Ghost in the Shell, Record of Lodoss War, Patlabor, Cowboy Bebop, etc. :-/

By the way, "woah!" to Ego and CG! You guys have raised the bar for this competition! ;)

And yes, ever single one of those feathers DOES have it's own shadow. The sword, shamefully however, does not. Life has slowed me down, this definately is not my best work...

Hrm, it's been quite a while since I made some OOTS art. I guess they didn't come out bad. I'm a traditional OOTS artist, so details and shading aren't my goal. Also they are avatar-size, since they were made before I saw this topic.

Best Character
Saber, Fate/Stay Night

http://genericlosar.net/avatars/saber.gifhttp://genericlosar.net/avatars/saberarmor.gif

EDIT: Upon closer inspection, it would seem that my entrees were submitted about 14 minutes late. Time zones confuse me sometimes. Also, I obviously fail at reading rules and simple instructions. Forgive me? In any case, at least I posted them.

Also, in case Saber is not a familiar face, here are some comparitive (http://genericlosar.net/images/5201.jpg) images. (http://genericlosar.net/images/5202.jpg)

Give them a few days. LiB seems to have a lot going on in RL so whenever he is able to finish the awards...

Roland St. Jude

Anyone know when the results will come out?

Here's a rule of thumb: you can expect the results of an IA contest before the next one closes. So in this case, sometime prior to the Oct. 31 close date for the Halloween Contest.

To be more specific about the present system, we're:
1. Starting a new contest the same day an old one closes. (So there's always a contest open for drawing!)
2. Allowing about two weeks of drawing time for each contest.
3. Getting awards posted about a week to a week-and-a-half after the contest closes.

So far the feedback I've been getting suggests people are really enjoying this format. Of course, if anyone has any comments or questions about the IA contest, feel free to PM me.

I'm quite a bit busy in real life these last weeks, but I will try to finish the awards this week, ideally before the board update.

I've already done the awards for the first three categories...

Ego Slayer

He certainly does. He makes such great trophies every time - and as you noted he makes lots of them! I may have something up my sleeve :-X but that's all I can say for now.

Uhhh..Yeah...It's been more than two weeks now. I don't mind so much about trophies, but can we at least know who placed where with what?

And I'm sorry if this has been said somewhere else and I've missed it.

Uhhh...Yeah...

As I've noted before, results will be posted before the next contest closes. Which in this case was slated for Oct. 31 (so we're still not there yet!)...


Here's a rule of thumb: you can expect the results of an IA contest before the next one closes. So in this case, sometime prior to the Oct. 31 close date for the Halloween Contest.


That's from this very thread! So you certainly shouldn't expect them before then!

That said, I've extended the time for the Halloween contest an extra two weeks to Nov. 14, so that's the new "deadline" by which you can expect results from this contest.

I know some people are eager for results and others are eager for trophies, and I'll get them all out to you as soon as possible. There is a rough schedule for the IA contests now, which I've outlined above. The board change-over has altered things slightly for this contest and the Halloween Contest, but other than that, you can expect results sometime before the following contest closes. If I have trophies before then, which should usually be the case, I'll post them. If I don't, which may occasionally happen, I'll post the results and the trophies will follow.

If you have any comments or questions, feel free to PM me.

No problem, yo. Sorry if I was a bit harsh there. :o

Having taken over this operation when it was 3-4 contests in the weeds, getting things running on some kind of schedule has been important to me, so the implication that I was being lax kinda irked me. (For the record, it was the "Uhhh...Yeah..." that did it. ;) )

I suppose having played along through those contests, you have good reason to wonder when, if ever, results/awards are coming out. So I can see where you're coming from. I'm glad people care enough to demand results. :)

Bottom line: never fear - results and/or awards will be coming soon.

But at least I got a trophie this time! Well...Two actually, but I don't think that the OotS group really counts, considering I was the only one that entered a group :sad:

I never knew that Roland liked D...I have to redraw him as well, I got the sword completely wrong. I didn't have a decent picture of him when I drew it.

Good work everyone...I'll see you in the Halloween thread!
