So! As most of you may know I am making a fantasy RPG PC game!! Oh you didn't know? Read all about it here! chi-u.deviantart.com/journal/M…\
But, its time for all of you to really get involved!! I am holding a contest for designing Armor, Weapons or a shield! Or everything!!
The best designs will be chosen to win, those winning designs will be available IN THE GAME!!
I strongly suggest that you read about Mana Cycle here before entering: www.facebook.com/manacycle
If you want, you can use this template/base to draw on:
Also, if you want, you can read about all the different type of items here so it can help you decide what type of weapon/armor/shield to design! justpaste.it/manacycle
Rules & Guidelines:
Things you can design are:
> A weapon (all kinds accepted. e.g staffs, swords, bow & arrows, tridents, maces etc, anything you can think of!)
> A shield
> A full armor set (I will need a front and back view of the armor design)
> A matching shield and weapon
> A matching shield, weapon and armor set (I will need a front and back view of the armor design)
What style should I draw in?
The style will be a mix between games such as Darksiders II & Torchlight 2. Closer to Darksiders II however.
Please try to adhere your best to a cartoon-anime style. Here are a few examples:
It would be great to see some really interesting awesome armor designs. Perhaps glowing due to a mana source or something. Here are some examples:
Tips for detail:
Try adding some cool hilts on the swords, something perhaps involves the shape of a wing like these: fc08.deviantart.net/fs5/i/2004…
Elemental weapon/armor/shield's are more than welcome!! The world revolves around the elements and the weapons/armor/shields can be powered by a Mana Orb like this: chi-u.deviantart.com/art/Ignus…
How many times can I enter?
You can enter as many times as you like!!
But what if I'm not very good at art? Does this effect my chances of winning?
Nope!! Art quality will not matter at all - as long as I can see enough detail to make out the general shape and patterns etc. this will be fine! It isn't a quality winning contest, it is an originality contest!
Do I need to colour my entry?
Yes please! The winning design needs to be 100% before submitting, sketches only will not be accepted. I say this so the winning design is purely 100% yours alone! Even basic flat colours will be fine, so major detail doesn't needs to be added unless you want to!
Do I need to name my designs?
Yes, otherwise this leaves more work for us, thereofre not making your design 100% your own, which is an important factor needed to win
What specifics are needed?
You need to let me know if it is an item that needs to be crafted in the game or if it can be found as a treasure already pre-made. If the design wins, I will chat further with you about it to decide on materials needed to be collected to craft it etc. Depending on how this goes, slight changes may need to be made, but I will take care of that alongside you.
Where do I submit my entries?
Simply send me a link in a comment or a note!
IT MUST BE ORIGINAL!!
If something is copied, I will know and you will be banned from the contest. Unfortunately I cannot take risks like this. This game will hopefully some day be a commercial product and we cannot risk the "unknown fact of something being stolen",
What is the deadline?
31st of December 2013, 12pm AEST*
