Hello artists, welcome back to your loading screen thread!

In the interests of separating prizes and certain rules from the submissions from January-March (affectionately titled [Q1]), I've decided to create a new thread for the quarter of April-June (affectionately titled [Q2]). Similar format, with some different rules and prizes. Read on!

 

* Please pay special attention to rule number 7, as it is newly added and in effect as of April 2017.

 

 

RULES

(Please review before submitting!)

 

1. Size. Entries must be 4:3 aspect ratio to fit loading screens. The proper size for our loading screens is 640x480px and 100KB or less. If you submit anything outside of that size, it will be readjusted to fit. If you'd like to size it yourself (this is preferred), sites like this will scale down your pictures and let you set a maximum file size. 


2. Credit. You must note if you are submitting as an artist or with a commissioned work and post the name of the artist. If you're submitting commissioned art, 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 and decent   ;)

 

3. Self-promotion. You may include your deviantart, tumblr, or personal artist website in the artwork or the submission post.

 

4. Plagiarism. 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. Likewise, entries with heavy use of stock imagery, clipart, and photographs will be rejected.

 

5. Frequency. 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.

 

6Propaganda. 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!")

 

7. Quality. While the general loading screen thread is for showcasing all fanarts and is not a contest, we expect there to be some level of quality and effort put into it. The loading screen thread is open to all honest artists and we want everybody to do their best, however, if a submission is deemed as lacking effort, it will not be included in either the loading screens or the prize pool for the month. These decisions are left to the discretion of the CMs and VMods alone. If your art is not included and you would like to contest the matter, you may PM either CM Astra or VMod Cinnamon.

 

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

 

Character Name: 

Server: 

Prize Desired:

 

 

PRIZES

  • Prizes are awarded to participants whose entries have been chosen for loading screen display.
    If yours is not chosen, you are free to submit again, unless you disqualify for plagiarism or other such bad activities
  • 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.
    All prizes for the month's submissions will be distributed at the end of the month.
  • 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 April - June

 

Costume Sombrero!
Party on with this gigantic traditional Mexican hat!

If you submit during April, May, or June, this is your default prize!

You also have the option of choosing from a Blue, Red, Green, or Orange Creative Convention Hat (pictured below).

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

Preferred Headgear : Costume Green Convention Hat

 

Media : For once, something that I didn't make. Digital artwork from my awesome friend Gazso. He gifted it as a late birthday present and I feel like his sketches are worth the 3 seconds people take to load their game. I have his permission to show his work, of course.

Note: If you have submitted for the end of March in the previous thread and have not been featured yet, don't worry! If your piece qualifies, you will still be receiving your March prize soon and will be featured during the next round of load screen uploads, which I am planning for this Thursday (April 6).

March submitters, you should have already received your hat. April submitters, your hats will all be distributed at the end of April.

Thanks everybody!
