New year, new loading screen submission thread!

 

Hi and welcome back, everybody! This is where you wanna be if you're interested in submitting your art for loading screens this year  :p_hi:

 

 

RULES

(Please review before submitting!)

 

1. Entries must be 4:3 aspect ratio to be considered for loading screens. If that means that you have to add a "letterbox" to get it to that aspect ratio (640x480, 1600x1200) please do so. 

 

2. Entries must be 640x480 jpg at around 150kb or slightly less. You can also include a larger scale version of your image in your submission post. Sites like this will scale down your pictures and let you set a maximum file size. 

3. You must note if you are submitting as an artist or with a commissioned work and post the name of the artist.

3a. Side note about commissions. If you're submitting art that isn't drawn by you and claiming you commissioned it, it cannot be work that has been previously submitted to this or any other loading screen contests. It also cannot be very, very old, like done over 1 year ago. Let's keep it recent, people ;)

 

4. You may include your deviantart, tumblr, or personal artist website in the artwork.

 

5. Using specific elements taken from another artists work (while subject to interpretation) without attribution or acknowledgement of the inspiration can be too close to plagiarism, and may cause the artwork to be rejected.

 

6. Only one submission per poster per month. If you post up multiple artworks during the month, please indicate which one you would rather be included first, otherwise it will be chosen for you.

 

7. Guild emblems in loading screen art is acceptable, but please do not turn it into propaganda or advertisement (ie: "X guild is better than Y guild!" or "Join X guild!"

 

8. When submitting your artwork, please include the following information in this format:

 

Character Name: 

Server: 

Prize Desired:

 

 

PRIZES

  • Prizes will change once every quarter. 
    That means there will be one prize each for the periods of January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December, a total of 4 different prizes. Each prize will be introduced at the beginning of its quarter. This is the "Core 4" :)
  • Prize distribution will remain on a monthly basis, based on the month the art was submitted.
    For example, if you submit in March but aren't displayed until April, you will get the prize for March.
  • Only one prize will be awarded to each artist per month.
    Yes, this means you can potentially get the same prize 3 times. However...
  • We will keep the Creative Convention Hats as alternative prizes.
    If you still like the Creative Convention Hats from last year, it will be offered as an optional prize for you instead of the Core 4. Just let me know :)

Core Prize for January - March

 

Costume Yoyo Hat!
This lovely little hat features a cute Yoyo sitting on your head. It even has a cute red butt from the back view!

 

Q1_loadscreenprize.png

 

 

If you submit during January, February, or March, this is your prize!

You also have the option of choosing from a Blue, Red, Green, or Orange Creative Convention Hat (pictured below), just like last year, if you don't want the Costume Yoyo Hat.

 

creativeconventionhats.png

 

Classic players have the option of getting a Yoyo Hat (non costume version), a Green Creative Convention Hat, or a Red Creative Convention Hat.

 

If there are any additional rules that you feel should be considered or listed, please let me know!

 

 

NOTE:

A reminder that entries posted in 2016 Loading thread will only count for that time as their participation prize is undergoing preparation or has been handed in. Also see this post. If for some odd reason you were skipped in that thread please send a PM to CM Astra with your 2016 participation entry.

Thank you for understanding!

Two questions: will the old submissions be implemented? How often will the load screens be updated? It used to be monthly years ago, but the timeliness of the updates became more and more sparse to where even the Holiday ones would extend past each other. Thank you.

Submissions from the end of the 2016 thread and the Holiday loading screen contest will be added today. There was an error when Oda attempted to add them prior to the holidays, and then, well, the holidays happened. They'll be up for most of January, and we're looking to update the loading screens monthly, as you mentioned.

 

 

In my opinion, having a different item each month is a bad idea. You are going to have people commissioning just to get a prize and you will also have art theft.
This is why Oda started offering the creative hats in the first place. You will eventually also run into people complaining that your prize is underwhelming or that you are giving out something that was from a promotion or event.

If you have some sort of rotating prize pool, it shouldn't be too bad.

Edit: Another issue was that some people would just spam for headgears and their friends and significant others would too, so it ended up being the same characters over and over and over.

 

Thanks for the input! One of the big reasons for the move away from the single year prize is to prevent it from getting stale, and to provide the opportunity to win different prizes for different months' submissions. Regarding the rotating prize pool, we're aiming to have a larger pool so long-time participants still have a shot at something new. We're still working out the prize system for this year's events and contests (not just this one). Do you think monthly changes are too frequent for prizes? We can always consider doing a more "seasonal" or "quarterly" prize update.

The way we are setting up the requests for these hats, they are unique item IDs that share looks with other hats. These hats would exist solely for purpose of this contest and not be the same as the hats that are awarded through other contests/events.

 

In an ideal world the rewards would be account bound, but also given exclusively to the poster's own characters. It would incentivize people to post art on their own, even if it's commisioned, it would add variety. Rotating prize pool sounds good!

 

Yup, rewards will be account bound and given to the posting user's character

I submitted in December (so please consider this my January submission and I won't submit again until February), so I'm not sure if I'll get a prize for this and I don't really care if I do or not, I just like to draw my character, but if I do,

 

Character: Faolain

Hat color: Green

 

My work. My last submission wasn't my best work but more of a brain worm I had at 3AM, so I decided to do something better.

Anything is fine; Red preferred.

 

Submitting as my own work(s)

 

Edit:

 

Did parody styles of poses/meme of my guild; hope that doesn't count as plagiarism. Please let me know if anything needs to be changed or if something different needs to be uploaded; these were all done in good fun.

 

If both are acceptable, I prefer the Tom Cruise Meme (1st picture) to be selected as I genuinely have a good laugh every time I see it and couldn't stop snickering when drawing it. It was a fast Sunday afternoon drawing; the 2nd one took longer and had more effort put in it but it's not as fun to look at and that's what I'm aiming for.

 

Edit 2: Changed to picture to a cleaner version with less guild emblem spam.
