Hi there everybody! With the end of the year coming up I thought it would be good to have a winter themed loading screen event to replace the excellent Halloween ones we have in right now. 

 

Deadline: December 18th, 11:59pm Pacific time

 

Theme:

 

Gift Giving in Rune Midgard OR Monster New Year's

 

Rules:

 

1. Must be a new art, previous artworks cannot be accepted. Must be wholly created by the submitting artist.

2. Only artist produced works can be submitted, no commissions please. 

3. Prize will be secret until the deadline has passed.

4. The best 17 selections will be turned into loading screens on the maintenance following the event deadline.

5. Resolutions: 1280x960 4:3 aspect ratio png file. It will be downscaled when we put it in the game but for the sanity of the High Rez loading screen fella better to submit with a higher resolution

6. Like with Iron Chef, the entries that reflect lots of effort and best use of the theme will be more likely to be selected.

 

 

An example from last year:

Thank you so much for your time and talent, good luck!

Question! (and this goes for the regular loading screen submission thread as well.)

 

Is 1280x960 a solid maximum or is any multiple of 640x480 allowed?

 

 

here we go... my first all digital loading screen entry....

 

Congratulations, Facekiller! :heh:

That is the set resolution for quality reasons.

Larger than 1280x960 is fine, just make sure to take into account that a superfine details may get compressed pretty radically when we scale it for the game but otherwise 4:3 aspect ratio stuff works just fine.

color is almost always preferred as it pops better... it can be done on paper and scanned in (i used to do all my pics that way)... this loading screen event is sorta like a contest where the best of the bunch get chosen so just put forth your best work!

It doesn't have to be colored, but it's recommended in my opinion. Effort is way more important than skill

Almost everything was created on Paint Tool SAI (computer art program) + a regular pen tablet. The caption/title was made on Photoshop CS4.

 

To upload the picture from my laptop, I used Photobucket.com and then copied/pasted the Direct URL onto this specific forum (example: [ img] DIRECT URL HERE [/ img] (no spaces though) so it would show up on here)

 

You don't have to be online all the time, but you would have to be active enough to see whether or not your submission was chosen so you can give your IGN to Oda so he can put the prize onto your character. (Correct me if I'm wrong Oda)

 

Thank you, and good luck!
