Favorite Fiction Blog Sprite Contest Submission Thread
« on: July 02, 2009, 02:00:56 PM »
Now announcing Favorite Fiction Blog's first ever sprite contest. This will be posted throughout the different Mugen communities, so each will have their own self contained contest with results posted on Favorite Fiction Blog, and then a sort of battle of the champions poll there.

The theme for the contest, characters discussed in the "What if?...MUGENized" series.

The following is a breakdown of the characters discussed in each article and the theme of each particular entry. You can use these as reference material, or other sources like wiki, comicvine, whatever.

Part 1: Instant Mugen Favorites
-Raven
-Black Canary
-Marvel Girl (Rachel Summers)
-Black Panther
-Spider-Carnage
-Yellowjacket

Part 2: Expanding Batman/Superman Universes
-Batman within the Batbot Mech-suit
-Livewire
-Knightquest Batman
-Metallo
-Penguin
-General Zod
-Vampire Batman

Part 5: Where do they get those wonderful toys

-Aztek
-Kraven the Hunter
-Adam Strange
-Orion
http://mmcelhaney-fiction.blogspot.com/2009/06/what-ifcharacters-thatd-be-cool-if_23.html

Here are a couple examples that had been done just for fun in other community threads for the series to give you an idea:
by navsmed41
by Gate
by Spooky77
by spidey

Rules
-Can either submit directly into the thread or with a pm to me
-Can use whatever sources, but if using non-open source sprite edits, please be sure to get permission first
-You can submit previous work that you have made in the past
-You can submit as many entries as you'd like
-Each communities mods/admins can adjust these rules that fit their forum better

The last week of the month, each submission will be voted on by the community and winners will then be posted on Favorite Fiction Blog as part of a best of the best sort of thing. And yes, you can submit the same sprite edits for the contest at multiple communities (in fact, this is encouraged)

Thank you

when are these due??
For those who are curious, yes I am gone and I don't intend to be back soon. I never formally said goodbye to you all, because that always becomes a forum stink. However, to my friends here, I wish you the best. Perhaps I'll be back one day but for now this is goodbye.

then voting will be here for the CVG entries, and then some will be voted on against other entries at other communities...or that is the plan anyway.

Just to clear up a couple questions that have been asked that other may have had.

- You can use any outfit you want, all that matters is the character in general
- No section contest, as in, all entries will be judged against one another regardless if its from the Batman/Superman entry, or the Outside Marvel and DC one.
- Does not matter if someone else is doing the same character
- You can submit whatever to FF_Blog@yahoo.com if you'd prefer


And remember:
- You can submit previous work you did, no need to sprite something new that fits the list from before
- Can submit to as many forums as you'd like
- Entries due 11:59pm July 31st and will be voted on the week preceding it.
- Selections from each forum (winners and other notables) will then be voted on here afterwards


Finally, here at CVG, the winner in this community will receive $15.00 paid to their PayPal account.

For more info about all this go to:

In an effort to help create more participation, the winner here at CVG will be able to choose a future WIP Focus article that was done similarly to this article on Scorpion: http://mmcelhaney-fiction.blogspot.com/2009/07/wip-focus-scorpion-by-hobgoblin.html

...but obviously you choose a different WIP to be featured.

This is in addition to the $15.00 you would win here.

just FYI my understanding from V is there is no longer a $15.00 prize because of not enough participation. You'd have too ask him to be sure but thats what I gathered. The WIP focus article is still up there I think though.
