The Official Art Competition Submission Thread

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Project Pokémon needs some new branding art, specifically a banner and a square logo, so we're holding an art competition. Here's how it works:

  • Participants will submit art in this thread from now until October 13.
  • Members will have 2 weeks to vote for the best submission. Members must have at least approved 50 posts in order to vote, as of the close of the voting period.
  • The winner will be awarded a colored username here and on Discord, as well as a forum badge. Additionally, credit will be provided wherever the image is used.

Submission Criteria:

  • Images should be PNG files. Additionally submitting project files (Photoshop, Gimp, etc.) is requested, but not required.
  • Images should prominately display the text "Project Pokémon"
  • Banners should include the text "Pokémon Through Innovation"
  • Banners should be approximately 1000 pixels wide and 200 pixels high. Larger images are acceptable (and preferable) as long as the aspect ratio is the same (5 wide:1 high), and text is readable when resized to 1000x200.
  • Logos should be approximately 250x250 pixels. Larger images are acceptable (and preferable) as long as the aspect ratio is 1:1.
  • Content features original drawings and background; plagiarism not accepted
  • You may place your name/username in the corner of each image so long as it does not draw undue attention to itself

@Got_Eevees then again it's not like the images I post are drawn by me; those are just layers pasted together.

(I also like the images you drawn from the earlier chapters of Pokemon Adventures; I loved the earlier volumes of it)

 

@evandixon as for art competition criteria, should the Pokemon design be original?

what I meant is, it's pose is at least not fully based on official or unofficial art?

That would be preferable, since we don't want any blatant plaigarism.

Yeah, that was the issue I had in mind, but it wasn't stated so I figured I double-check with ya.

Has a Pokemon to be in the banner/logo? I'm more a fan of neutral designs so I made a banner without one. I hope that's ok too.

Yes, that Ball was inspired by the forum's current background xD

Maybe the design is to simple. But criticism is welcome!

Project files can be shared if needed.

No need for Pokémon to be present.

Good work!

I made a logo as well, but I don't really like it xD
I can share project files if needed.

I know there's still time until October, but I might be too busy over the next weeks. So I thought it's better to submit early.

I decided to give it a try, just a rough sketch and feedback is welcomed :Dpporg.thumb.png.ddf7655728de05ee15593c921e9cc0c1.png

Have you tried to experiment with different colours, I think I would go blind if I saw a white/yellow colour scheme

Looks amazing

*Sigh*

Early bird gets the worm.

I was thinking of doing a design similar to the one we have but more ...artsy,you know? Vibrant.

But it includes Ho-oh and Lugia. I was going to base my design off of the top of every page(the PP logo w/the legends).

@evandixon

I hate copying and want to make it clear I had this idea a while ago. Is it still acceptable if I turn this in w/Lugia and Ho-oh? I'm asking because @wrathsoffire76 made a design w/these legends and wouldn't want to make it if he or you would be uncomfortable with it.

@wrathsoffire76

:) Great job. BTW, You guys will probably crush me. >.< I'll try my best,though..

Hard work triumphs through. Hopefully. xD

I wasn't aware animated PNGs were a thing. This could change everything.


It's a thing!
Just that it seems like only updated browsers support it. ><

I think I can settle down with this one (banner, logo v1, logo v2)

This isn't an entry, but the low quality of the PP favicon always mildly annoyed me, so I retouched it. Feel free to use it (or not).
