Who here remembers when I used to do those monthly contests? No one? OKAY THEN.
 
I feel like holding one again, so HERE. WE. GOOOOOOO.

To enter, you must PM the mug to me saying you want to enter.

If you don't want to be a part of the prize money thing, you are still free to enter.


1st Place prize is $30.
2nd Place prize is $15.
3rd Place prize is $5. You need a paypal account in order to receive your prize. Yes. Paypal is free. And if you register for a paypal debit card, you can make offline purchases with your paypal account. Lol
 
The THEEEEEEME of the contest is cute and adorable.
 
Sprite a mug that is cute and adorable. Can be male or female.
 
Yes. The sprite has to fit into the hackbox. (For those of you who do not know of the hackbox, refer to here. https://dl.dropboxus...307/hackbox.png
 
hat big blue polygon thing is the hackbox. ...Why is it called a hackbox, anyway? That's not a box.)
No, it does not have to follow the 16 color limit.
 
If you make any updates to your mug and the registration deadline has not passed, you may send the updated version to me. Keep in mind that your previous entry will be overwritten. So don't try sending in 10 sprites. Because you won't have 10 chances to win, you'll still have only one.

Mugs will scored across 4 categories on a 1 to 5 scale. There are 5 judges, so the max a mug can get is 100 points.

The categories are:

Theme
Quality
How closely it resembles the original
Outside the box thinking

I reserve the right to disqualify you at any time. So don't be a jerk, k? You may ask as many questions as you want though. 
 
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. JUDGING IN PROGRESS
 
3rd
Elwood's Submission Total Score: 58 & 2/6
"Here's mine. I'm sorry if you're scarred by it. "
Spoiler

 
2nd
Whitewolf8's Submission Total Score: 63.5
"Definitely not an ice cream!"
Spoiler

 
1st
Mercurious's Submission Total Score: 75.5
"**** YOU MANDATORY COMPUTER RESTART.
Uuuuuuuugh, okay, I'm pretty tired, so I'll leave out all the unnecessary stuff I was gonna say."

LITTLE DID YOU KNOW THAT I WANTED AN EXCUSE TO SPRITE MOAR CUTE.

Almost in the same boat as zac, although for me it's just that I DUN NEED YER CHARITY. (Not really, but whatever)

 

 

So... Hypothetically if we got the top 2 spots, and someone, say Merc got third spot... Would Merc get all the prize money? Lulz.

Last time it was sending over a PM since others being able to look at yours before they finish theirs is an unfair advantage.

 

So... Hypothetically if we got the top 2 spots, and someone, say Merc got third spot... Would Merc get all the prize money? Lulz.

I got the third and first prize combined before if that means anything.

I've updated the first post to address most of your questions. If you get in the top three and don't want your prize, I'll donate your prize. Most likely to FES.

I'm almost done with mine, just have to do the hair. I had to revise my design choices so many times I'm far beyond the point where I've become tired of it...my Photoshop has been constantly open all week. (Not that I've been spending too much time on it, it's just never closed so I'm always reminded it's there and not going away until it's over with. This post is mainly being made so that I gain a little more incentive to finish fast too.) Don't know if I can deal with going for next month's contest...

I object.

 

the only (potentially) valid objection is that which comes with evi-I mean, a sprite of your own XP

 

also I'd have liked to entered but not enough time so I won't be, QQ I'm bad at deadlines, too much stuff going on and I can only prioritize so much, + I kinda forgot about this (though I probably wouldn't have finished an entry on time even if I had remembered >_>')

SO. Scoring is gonna have a little bit of extra input from now on.

 

Forum members can vote on the mugs and score them, but they will not be worth as many points as the actual judges' input.

The categories are:

Theme
Quality
How closely it resembles the original (Example. If it's a splice of Eliwood and it obviously still looks like Eliwood, then low marks. Basically, the more the mug looks like an original creation, the higher it should score. If the mug is full customed, that should be an automatic full mark)
Outside the box thinking

 

On a scale of 1 to 3, rate each mug in each category if you wish to vote.

 

 

Elwood's Submission Total Score: 58 & 2/6

"Here's mine. I'm sorry if you're scarred by it. "

Whitewolf8's Submission Total Score: 63.5
