THAT'S RIGHT... Voting closes tonight sooooo VOTE if you have not already. :)

Head on over to my page and vote away :D

Voting will last until midnight this coming Friday (8th/11/13) UK time.
Where upon the top three voted pieces will be used for the winners.. PLEASE note however the most popular piece does not automatically win, I have final say in the placing of the top three.

In an effort to keep everything fair I will NOT tolerate deviants who have entered doing "vote for me" journals.. I will remove you from the contest if you do so, it's just bad sportmanship.

There you have it :D, get voting.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PORTAL COMPETITION

I will animate the winning piece + Prizes

(PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Theme: is Portal - Ratman!.

The piece must at least contain Ratman and be set in the Portal universe.

You can have as much in addition to that requirement (other characters etc), but it must at least contain Ratman.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Medium: Almost all visual mediums will be accepted, Traditional/Digital/Mixed/Photography/3D etc.

Sadly this does Exclude Film and Animation, and all non Visual mediums.

All work must be your own or stock and resources from DA with credit and links given (if I cannot be 100% sure then your piece will not be accepted).

The submission must be a new piece for the competition.

The piece must be of a reasonable standard, I don't want to discourage anyone but please be sure to put your best work forward as I am funding the prizes myself and want to do one hell of an animation at the end!.
I'm not asking the world just take your time, and unless you are a god in MSPaint.. there are free alternatives like Blender/Gimp out there :).
All quite clearly rushed entries will be denied on these grounds, sorry.

Additionally no use of official art work (other than the game title/text/script, You can RECREATE the official art work but all work must be your own.) is accepted, with the exception of XNALara models as reference (that means they have to be modified/painted over enough to be unrecognizable, so no pure XNALara pieces will be accepted.

An example for XNALara being modified enough is this.

The Running Time and Main Rules:

The competition starts now and ends on the tolling of 12:00 Midnight October 31st 2013 UK time (GMT).

All entries should be submitted via note or message on this journal to me by this time.

ANYONE on DA can enter, you do NOT need to be in any specific group.

You can submit as many entries as you like but only one/1 can make it to the final 3.

No sexually explicit or offensive content. (Gore levels can be discussed/queried).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And one LAST very important request.

The layout, if possible and for the purpose of animating keep the individual layers of the image to hand (this applies to digital entries more than traditional of course).
But is it MUCH easier to animate something if I don't have to cut it up and fill in the blanks behind layers/characters etc

This is what I mean.

Example Layers by Null-Entity

or

My Wonderlands Shattered Breakdown/Semi Tutorial by Null-Entity

Or...

www.designcontest.com/blog/wp-…

Otherwise go nuts, have fun and take your time there are no bonuses for submitting first.

I have some ideas that I'm working on, unfortunately, I don't think they will be done in time for the deadline (because of school).
