OK, this is...

IRON AVATARIST
The best place for bored avatar artists to look.

Rules: People may post their avatar requests here, whether they actually want to use them as avatars or not. *All avatar makers that wish to will try to make the request as well as they possibly can, within a day of the request. *After the deadline is up or there are no more avatars within the works, anyone (even the avatarists) can vote on which they think is the best.

Anyone want to start us up with a request?

EDIT: Since we're getting so many requests, I'll turn this into a suggestion thread. A different thread can be for voting and actually posting the avatars.

I think having a separate showcase thread is a cool idea.

I have an idea for the showcase threads though. Make a separate thread for each project and title it like this:

Iron Avatarist Showcase -- Gordon Freeman Avatar

That makes sense to me if people are competing on one drawing at a time.

2006-03-25, 02:49 PM
ok heres a suggetion for an iron avatarist contest

in oots style
using flash

to young stage dragon

unnammed as of now
as im working out the details for a new type of character classes and this is one of them

I think people should make their requests in the Avatar Request Thread and suggestions of something a bit more general in this thread.

A la Yoda.

Sneak
2006-03-25, 03:15 PM
Yeah, that's kind of thing works much better for this. We don't want to be overflooding with random requests, post those in the normal thread.

Jibar
2006-03-25, 03:22 PM
I shall say this now;
This thread and the idea that created this thread is the work of a lot of a few people who had too much time and were very bored.

Wukei
2006-03-25, 04:03 PM
Would you like to make this a private vote or open vote policy?

I could take the votes (being a neutral party, since I don't make avatars myself) in and count them and list people 1st to whatever place. If that's the way you'd like to do it.

Just a suggestion.

PhoeKun
2006-03-25, 04:22 PM
So it's true what they say: the best things in life are inspired by Iron Chef.

I still want to see Testament (http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v254/guiltygear/ggi_testament-1280.jpg) in avatar-ish form, and this seems like the perfect venue for such a request.

So if/when you guys get to this, have at it!

That's a good idea—this means we can have more than one contest at a time. So, we're doing Gordon Freeman and Testament.

Just a suggestion.

I guess I need to explain why:

If someone is outvoted by several votes (should this thing get popular enough to have up to 50 or more votes) they might get upset. *This way you would not know whether you were outvoted by one or one hundred.

Sneak
2006-03-25, 04:49 PM
Hmmm, yeah, that's probably a good idea.

But if you had all of them PMed to you...that wouldn't be fun for you now, would it?

Wukei
2006-03-25, 04:51 PM
No, it's fine, I'd mark it down on a sheet on my computer and delete the post, that way I could get into my inbox.

Don't worry, I've got a system. I do the same thing with character sheets PMed to me now so I don't by accident hit "clear inbox"

2006-03-25, 05:46 PM
Since you did Testament, do Bridget, too.

Wukei
2006-03-25, 05:56 PM
Might I make a suggestion?

(If I'm not allowed suggestions if I become the poll officer, I'd understand...)

My favourite show ever is Gensomaden Saiyuki. Kougaji is my favourite villain ever, too. (And I know the guy who played him, Vic Mignogna. He also played Brolli in DBGT), but I couldn't find a good picture of Kougaji in full.

So, Hakkai. (http://www.advfilms.com/favorites/saiyuki/images/downloads/characters/hakkai01.jpg)


On another related note: suggestions should have a picture offered so that the avatar artists who don't know your character you ask for may know what they look like.

2006-03-25, 06:27 PM
So do you want all avatar suggestions to be accompanied by a non-avatar picture, or do simple text descriptions work as well?

Wukei
2006-03-25, 06:30 PM
I'd think pictures would be better.

I mean, if it's a general character from a show or game, it should be easy to find a picture.

Sneak
2006-03-25, 06:52 PM
Well, my picture for Testament is up...

2006-03-25, 07:40 PM

The only other thing is I hope this thread stays here in the Comics and not moved to Silly Message Board Games or Friendly Banter. Although it may fit better there, I hang out in this thread much more often.

The only thing is that on weekends, a lot of people aren't around. Give it til Monday. More people will show interest.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve the rules, btw, feel free to post them here as well, too.Voting. If someone wants to change his vote, will you track that? Will you keep track of preventing multiple voting by one user (either by changing his vote or by disregarding it)?

Each contest thread should have dates for when submissions and votes are valid.

[hr]I know this isn't taking off very quickly, but I really think that it will. It's really a clever idea. I had proposed earlier to gather some of the OoTS Arts and Crafts avatars into one place, and I think this will kind of do that.

[hr]Okay, so Kore is my favorite character ever. I propose a challenge for reproducing him in OoTS style. I don't know if I'll ever finish my drawing of him. I started in a fit of creativity but... I'm pretty good at starting things and not finishing them.

See the following link to get the full effect of Kore:

2006-03-26, 05:58 AM
one rules question, is the artists allowed to vote (and can they vote for themselves)?

edit: when do they current avatar entries have to be in by?

Wukei
2006-03-26, 11:34 AM
Since it was given to you on Saturday, it's to be in by Tuesday

When is this board most active btw?

Raven

TheLastOfTheFallen
2006-03-28, 12:39 PM
Ok, question - are we only using allready existing characters for this contest? So far, unless I'm reading this wrong, every character that is in the contest and backlog that is being considered is from a video game/webcomic, counting Kore.

Second: For submission, perhaps people should pm their actual submissions to someone (I'd do it if no one else wants to, though I plan on competing, so that might not be the best idea), who puts them up without names of who made it, so that there is no way that people could let a name influence their vote, and give more obscure artist a chance.

Hawkeye
2006-03-28, 12:39 PM
hmm... I think the term "fallen flat on it's face" is the best summary of how things have gone at the moment. Oh well, good idea at the start tho.

Tomb_Raven
2006-03-28, 12:56 PM
Yeah deffinately a sticky pancacke this one... :( well hopefully will work better soon. Well the suggestion should be something with an existing non ootsy pic of it,... so that there is an ideal on which to judge the others.
Sigh please do compete :P the more the better maybe if people see more competeung they will join in too

I second that, also because when everyone PMs their entry the artists cant cheat by looking at eachothers entry's.

Zann
2006-03-29, 06:26 AM
Yeah,PMing. Maybe people should PM their requests to you,and you could modify your post to put themin. Then the avatarists could PM the avatars to you, and you could edit them in too.

So as to avoid confusion and blockage up of threads.

Wukei
2006-03-29, 04:24 PM
If an avatarist copies another avatarist, I'd assume it'd be obvious. Considering there's a date and time on it.

Now, Sneak. It's your turn. I've set the votes, you set the contests.

Roland St. Jude
2006-04-01, 08:41 PM
I would love to see an Iron Avatar contest of: The Man With No Name.

He's the quintessential Clint Eastwood spaghetti western character.

Rules Suggestion: Instead of voting, why not have three judges, all of whom give tongue-in-cheek commentry on different entries and the 'flavours' they provide?

Maybe have a fixed number of entry slots per show? A requirement for artists to post their work AS they work on it?

I'd like to get into this game, but it is a little messy in its current format.

The last call for entries I found was Grodon Freeman- about the top of page 3, yeah?

But there is no deadline mentioned, so it is hard to see if it is still current.

Or is there another thread that I should be looking at? (I know there were a few earlier.

Sneak
2006-04-06, 06:51 PM
Well, it was kind of gone for a while, but now it's back...with DRAGONS!

Queue:
Bridget (Guilty Gear, I believe? By PhoeKun)
Hakkai (Gensomaden Saiyuki, by Wukei)
Tonberry King (pretty explanatory. by...dun dun dun...TONBERRYKING!
Kore (Goblins, by TinSoldier)
The Man With No Name (by Roland St. Jude, just google his name [heh], you'll find pictures)

I think we agreed to have 2 contests running at once, but since the dragon contest is a lot more broad and different from most, we'll let that run alone. Of course, this queue is not set in stone, they are just what has been suggested. If people don't want to do them, we don't have to.

I have absolutely no artistic talent, so I won't be competing. (no, really, trust me). But I just want to give a shout out to the Iron Avatar competition. I really like seeing everyone's artwork. Even if there aren't a huge amount of competitors.

Here are my suggestions for future competitions:

Martial arts competion
Bad james bond villians
Extreme V makeover (tee hee!)

Thanks for your contributions to the arts, people :)

Extreme V makeover (tee hee!)



Seconded.

ElfLad
2006-04-07, 04:27 PM
Out of curiousity, would a Balrog be acceptable for Dragons: other? Because I've been working on one of those and I believe it's definitely a dragon-like creature.

Wukei
2006-04-07, 04:29 PM
Personally, I think it'll fit into demons and devils (which we might do should enough people feel inclined to do it...though it will be down the line.)

Chris the Pontifex
2006-04-07, 04:30 PM
hmm yesss, I'll do the Erinyes (done too many succubi already)

also V makeover sounds like fun

Lothorus
2006-04-09, 04:50 PM
Hum... suggestions, eh?

Well, forgive me if this has been put forward before in some other competition, but I would like to see a few people competing to make an OotS-style avatar of the manliest of all Final Fantasy bad guys.

I speak of Kefka, of course.

Here's some visual aid: Amano style, and... (http://www.ffcompendium.com/chara/6kefka-a.jpg)
Original Pixel flavor. (http://www.biwa.ne.jp/~tak-n/dot_ff6/kefka.gif)

I hope there's enough room on the que for this. If not, or if there is some other reason to bar this suggestion, I understand.

Archonic Energy
2006-04-11, 04:05 AM
how about the other characters from "the lord of the mings"

we have frudu and ... (what was gandalf's new name?) the wizard dude.

just a thought.

TheLastOfTheFallen
2006-04-12, 01:22 AM
Just a thought: what about a contest that allows the artists more room to be creative? Right now we have: "Here is a character/monster, draw it." While fun, it doesn't give much room for creativity.

Why not, instead, having something that has to be incorporated into all of the artists drawings, much like the single ingredient allowed in the Iron Chef competition.

For example, the 'ingredient' could be "a glowing longsword." Every entry would have to include a glowing longsword. Or maybe it would be "fire." every entry would have to have fire. Perhaps it could be a race: "Goblin", and ever avatar must include a goblin in some fashion.

Also, for some of these, it would be best not to limit it to avatar sized images, giving the greatest flexability.

Just my 2cp.

Wukei
2006-04-16, 02:07 PM
I dunno...what do you guys think:

One that's actually a character and one that incorporates an ingredient?

Anyway...I'll be starting the next 2 contests sometime today. Yay! Hakkai's up! (I'll scan a nice picture of him for you guys...I have all of the books.)

And some chick called Bridget...wait, isn't Bridget the guy?

PhoeKun
2006-04-16, 02:13 PM
Its worth mentioning that Bridget (http://www.guiltygear.ru/images/charsets/ggxxr_cs_br.jpg) is a guy. A very... creepy guy with horrible parents.

Wukei
2006-04-16, 02:14 PM

Wukei
2006-04-20, 11:34 PM
Very well...we'll see how that one goes.

(Yes, I'm doing it out of order again.)

Seeing as this is a large one again, I'll be having just the one IAS again.

Tomb_Raven
2006-04-28, 08:44 AM
How about this:

You have the oots gang or linear guild or xykon and co as some group of superheroes (like ones that already exist ie. fantastic 4, spiderman, x-men etc..)

that has potential for being really cool :D

Raven

Wukei
2006-04-28, 11:20 AM

I'd love to see an OOTSitized Senor Cardgage ;D

LostInBrittany
2006-05-03, 08:22 AM
This last days I've thinking of a Western themed OOTS... I guess that Wild West OOTS could be a nice Iron Avatarist contest.

Cowboys, sheriffs, bandidos, desperados, calvary, indians... there is a potential for stick people creativity, isn't it ?

Tomb_Raven
2006-05-03, 11:20 AM
I second the above... :D i was going to suggest them as jedi but i prefer cowboy, less nerdy ;) :P

Hawkeye
2006-05-03, 02:39 PM
I think that an overall OoTS group thing is the way to go, I enjoyed making the OoTS band thing, and I'm enjoying making the superheros at the moment. More of the same please!

Wukei
2006-05-03, 02:44 PM
Like I said, I'm going to do one group thing that lasts the week, and then a 1 character thing (IE Tonberry King) that lasts until Wed and voting lasts until Saturday (when the new game starts all over again.)

At least until we run out of small requests like that.

Tomb_Raven
2006-05-03, 02:56 PM
could you please put up the list of IA things please Wukei

Raven

Wukei
2006-05-03, 03:07 PM
I'm not understanding the question...but I'll do what I think you mean.

Singles in queue:
Kore (Goblins, by TinSoldier)
The Man With No Name (by Roland St. Jude)
Extreme V makeover (by saraswatsi)
Kefka (by Lothorus)


Group queue:
Lord of the Mings (archonic energy)
Simpsons (danielf)
Lord of the Rings (kedrot hemhold)
Homestarrunner (it's dot com...I mean, Vorpal Tribble)
Western-themed (Lost in Brittany)

I say we should vote on the next two in queue, just so we can get more people involved in creation...whaddya think?

TinSoldier
2006-05-03, 03:12 PM
I vote for Kore ;D and Western.

Tomb_Raven
2006-05-03, 03:15 PM

Don't go away mad, danielf.

Post your avatars/pictures in the OotS Arts & Crafts thread. If no one comments, that's okay. While art thrives on feedback your art won't starve without.

Whether or not I agree with the M*A*S*H contest, a general action series is too wide a scope as it would contain too much variety to judge adequetly (for example MASH, a serious/comedy sitcom compared to Nightrider, a scifi sort of program).

V you've never heard of MASH? Blasphemy! Just type MASH into an image finder.

2006-05-16, 02:50 PM
whats M*A*S*H* ??M*A*S*H (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%2AA%2AS%2AH_%28TV_series%29) was an American sitcom that was aired on television from 1972 to 1983 and still airs in syndication.

It was the story of a US Army hospital unit in the Korean war and was based on the novel and the movie of the same name.

The series was a character-driven comedy/drama. Many of the issues it dealt with had more applicability to the US war in Viet Nam than with the Korean war. But it dealt with a lot of other social issues as well.

It was a great series and if you've never seen it, you should seek it out because it was probably one of the best shows ever on television.

Or maybe we can continue without votes and without prizes. ok, there is no the same thing, but...

Wukei
2006-06-30, 11:26 AM
I think since it was named after Iron Chef that we should do this:

3 judges (probably those avatarists that don't wish to participate in the thread) plus me as the announcer still giving a Wukei's Choice Award.

Contestants are an unlimited number.

Prizes may or may not be still around. I haven't spoken with Dark Stalion and I don't know anyone else willing to do that much work.

I got onto these boards in time to participate in one Iron Avatar contest and I loved it. *I would be more than happy to do what I can to keep it alive. *I have all the vector programs on my laptop, and the time to make trophies inbetween posting on my PbP games at work. *I would enjoy judging too, even making up score-cards or something like they have on Iron Chef, so that the artists could see what was particularly good about thier entries. *We could have categories like:

How well it fits the theme of the contest
How well it fits OotS style
Color and shading
Originality
Funny
Taste


and then the judges would PM thier scorecards for each atrist to Wukei (if she is willing to take on the task still) and she could post the totals and the winners. Then the judges wont individually be flammed if they vote against one, and they wont be swayed by other's votes. *Although others in the playground could post thier opinions all over the thread, and a good judge would listen and consider them all too. With scorecards the judges would not have to pick one "best" entry. If two entries are equally funny, they can have equal scores in that part of the scorecard.

Plus I think it would be a good idea to have fewer IA contests at one time going. *I seem to remember seeing two active threads in the past. *Also, we could put the date the thread closes in the title, so that people are less likely to miss it.

I might see if Sneak is willing to be a judge.

That is for the OotS Arts & Crafts thread.

(The requests start again...)

This is for something more basic like an actual character or a theme that several people will attempt to make at once.

perhaps we could do an Iron avatarist according to a theme rather than something deffinate... like for example set the theme as sci-fi spacey things however they have to be the old school style,... ala flash gordon and e.e. doc Smith

Instead of something as specific as one SF RPG, we could try a general Sci Fi OotS theme. Could be dressed up as a character from a sci fi movie, could have a laser gun, could be anything, just the general theme.

I'd like to suggest OotSitized album covers. I'd love to see an OotSy Abbey Road or Sgt. Pepper's.

Problem is, not all albums can be effectively fit into the OotS style if it doesn't have humans or animals.

Lets see Xykon as Dr Doom, or Elan is the Human Torch. Perhaps Roy should like like Hellboy.

Hmm, an IA contest without avatarists? I suppose that doesn't work very well. *:) *Considering this IA thing is just getting going again, I'd hate to see it derailed by a contest no one's interested in drawing for.

As an aside, I suspect the lack of entries is because M*A*S*H is a pretty old movie/show. Even with the prevalence of olive drab, it seems like it would be fun given the humorous nature of the show. But I guess it probably isn't that interesting to an artist who isn't a fan.

LoopyZebra
2006-08-29, 08:19 PM
First things first. Shouldn't Wukei make the thread? No offense intended, but she has ran this thing since it's birth (aside from Sneak's initial reign).

Secondly, the Town: The Gathering is a bad idea. Anything fantasy related doesn't excite anyone's creative juices; fantasy art is the norm here, and IA in general pulls us away from our usual topics. Plus, I think it's a bit too specific; not all of us play Magic.

A good theme for a contest has too draw away from the commonplace styles; in addition, it cannot be too specific (ex. the MASH IA). This rules out any single item, but limits us to more general topics. The particularly successful IA's have been the general ones, such as Sci-Fi, Western, Superheroes, 80's, and Stickified Webcomics. These expanded categories allowed for anyone to find something they liked in there; like I said, not all of us play or like Magic.

Personally, I think that something along the lines of Sports (any sport, but could be narrowed down) or Modern Military (again, could easily be made more specific) would be good themes.
