Ending on March 31st, we are doing another screenshot/drawing loading screen contest! The theme for this month is movies/movie posters of the 1980s and 1990s. I want to see your take on movie posters from that era, with RO characters/monsters/npcs/locations playing the parts! These can be funny or serious RO parodies of classic films like Star Wars, Die Hard, Police Academy but creativity and how well it captures the theme will be major parts of the judging process.

1. There will be a maximum of 17 entries that we can take
2. Must be submitted by 6pm on March 31st and will be added to the game on April 1st. 
3. Must be own art, no commissioned works.  
4. Needs to be new art, no previously submitted work.

5. Collaborative works can be eligible as long as the post mentions who did what. Must be a significant contribution by the posting user to the artwork. 

 

The aspect ratio for the entire image is 4:3, so please submit 800x600 minimum sized images. Larger is better, since we can still scale it down. For the movie poster itself some kind of background would be wonderful. Perhaps a brick wall or velvet curtain, something to convey the movie theater where the poster would be shown!
 
There will be prizes for the 17 best entries, along with three special prizes for the top 3.

I think the hardest part is which classic movie to choose. There's too much good ones out there.  :p_swt:

does the "poster" have to be vertical (like virtually all movie posters)?

using the whole 4:3 screen as the poster itself (no brick/curtain/etc background) is not allowed? (though of course there will be background on the poster itself)

I'd recommend people stick with the vertical aspect ratio, though if you can make a case for it (post the original you are using for inspiration or how you plan to do it) that would be possible.

if you image search on google: horizontal movie poster, it will be like that format i guess;

the thing is, i had a background (wide-aspect) planned that would fit this spring season; thought it would be nice if could apply that to this movie poster event;

You can enter multiple entries if you have the time.

 

 

Are we allowed to use sprite/ingame art for this contest?

 

Yes, but I will be putting more weight in judging on entries that are wholly drawn by the artist.

I'm sure I have no idea of what you're talking about~

Oh, this is a drawing contest then? The way you describe it and use the word "screenshot" makes it sound like you wanted us to manipulate screenshots and turn them into movie posters.

Ah well, i don't have drawing skills so I might sit this one out.

I know I sent you a pm already Oda but just in case you won't read it there, are anime movies allowed?

 

If so, I'm still trying to decide on My Neighbor Totoro or Grave of the Fireflies... Both had awesome movie posters.

The movies should be internationally well known and from the 80s or 90s and can be anime or movies that are not just from hollywood.

You know what, I'll have best drawing and a best photoshop prize for the contest, so enter away!

I won't lie, I was thinking of doing Totoro before you two even mentioned it, but oh well

I'll do this instead: (I have no skill with photoshop either, but it's fun to mess with so Ima make a bunch and not win anything for my effort 8D)

This is cool. Is this limited to self-drawn images/arts or we could use stock images which are royalty-free or even use images inside the game?

Thanks.

I knew exactly which movie I wanted to do as soon as I saw this!

The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite movies and I love the little Aqua spirit! ♥

Something quick and fun. So many movies to choose from~ Might do another for fun~  Not exactly a movie poster, but I always liked the previews. if i need to revise, just let me know. edit - apparently doing this in the middle of the night early morning means typos. but it's fixed... *ta.... da?*

Its kind of similar to the poster for the usual suspects, so I dunno, maybe Oda will give it a passing grade.

I love the 1 -2 inch height markers! It's pretty darn close to the original source poster so that's fine.
