Cinquine and Myzery back again to bring you another fabulous contest!
This time we're looking for the best pixel artists in all of Rune-Midgarts.



What's the deal?

This is a contest to showcase your talent for a chance at awesome prizes.
The best and most appealing entries will be revealed by CM Oda on December 02, 2014 during the Tiki Tuesday livestream.
The actual contest deadline is the night of November 30, 2014 at 11:59pm.

  • This contest will have 3 different categories.
  • All entries must be RO related.
  • All entries must be your own, original work.
  • You may enter all 3 categories once each.
  • Each entry must be original and can't used multiple times.
  • All entries should also be made especially for this contest and not be previous works.
  • Animation is allowed.

Note*: If you suspect someone of plagiarism, please PM one of us. Any accusations posted in this thread will be promptly deleted.
 
The first category is for an existing class, monster, npc, whatever you want to do! Maybe you want to showcase your love for your pet poring, Brutus or let your favorite Kafra lady know how special she is. Perhaps you want to do a selfie or maybe let the world know who your bff is.
 
Example:

Spoiler

 
The second category is for scenes. Do you like Payon on a warm Summer evening? How about Comodo on a lazy afternoon? No matter where or what you choose, this had to be a scene that relates to Ragnarok.
 
Examples:
Spoiler

 
The third and final category is for original custom NPC sprites. You can design your own Kafra guy/gal, quest giver, Prontera sushi chef, or anything your heart desires for an NPC. This should NOT be a future or current class idea. Your custom NPC might just make an appearance in a future quest if it's appropriate.
 
Examples:

If I was good at all I'd definitely enter. But literally this is the most I can do.

Not everyone will be able to do every event. Some people can draw, some cannot. Some people can cook, some cannot. Some people are crafty, others not so much. The whole reason I started in the event business was because I was tired of seeing events that only catered to people who could draw traditionally (drawing is great, but I thought it was unfair to not give other types of people the opportunity to get cool hats). I am always looking for ideas for the next one, as is Sapphic, Ralis, Myzery and what looks like tati now too. If you have a special talent and you'd like to see it featured, please please contact one of us, or volunteer for fungineering yourself if you're up for the challenge.

When u say original entry, do u mean pixelled from scratch or we can start off an existing character base (eg. An AB sprite) and edit from there? Cause some look quite similar to actual game sprites and with edits than completely from scratch?

It's greatly appreciated that not all contest are about drawing or art related so more people get a chance to win that sweet sweet sakura crown

 

I'll have to wait for one perfect for me @@

I won't enter this one, but good luck everyone !!

They're not just similar. They're ALL edits. The third category especially, which seems to contain bits of the Trans Valk, one of the Rachel NPCs, LoTD, the swords from an NPC whose name I don't recall, an Amatsu monster, a Ferus, a SinX, an NPC from one of the Trail updates we don't have yet, that flame wheel effect, a recoloured Disguise mant and a couple of pserver things I won't mention because pserver :U

 

The only one I'd say is mostly original is this, but the sword is ripped from an old arcade game, and the shoes are from another sprite 47.gif

I really love spriting and pixels, count me in.

 

 

Heres one for the first category, decided to pay some homage to the Dark Knight class. They seem to be popular and tend to be present class in alot in the Ragnarok spinoff titles. Even have their own limited armor set that I really wish I had ; _ ;

Heres one for the second category which is something that I do enjoy doing in game and in the forum. Speculating and discuss upcoming events and future content with other people :

Took abit of time, heres the last one for the third category, made a dwarf. Semi abit off from Ragnaronk style, this

was a first time doing the style from pure scratch.

I thought about it a good bit and decided that you have the option to do either one.

As long as it's clear that the art is from Ragnarok.

You can use the sprites from the game as long as it's not just a copy and paste fest.

I'm not expecting much of that, but with some of the loading screen contests, people were guilty of doing it.

I would like to think that people will be honest in using their own work.

You can show work since it shows the effort put in, but I'm not going to make it mandatory.

Hmm. This is tricky. Moderating every little detail for originality will be next to impossible, as I'm not familiar with every game out there. Coming from someone who frequently uses effects from other games myself, I would say: if you use bits of a sprite from another game, make sure you cite your source to avoid getting into any trouble. It's not plagiarism if you give credit where it's due and it can be accounted for. Though it would be important to keep in mind if you make something yourself from scratch you will receive a much larger amount of points than if you just borrow a bunch of elements from other games. Does that sound fair?
