Hi, Dragonvarsity here. I decided it might be nice to finally make a little contest here at LBPC and today I got an idea. Lots and lots of people are making some great sounding projects but maybe not all of them get much recognition or maybe they do but anyway, for this competition, if you have any projects going on, your job is to make a little poster for the project and then post it here on this thread. Here are the prizes.

1st place: 6,500.00 XP and a drawing of your sackperson by myself (I know I'm not nearly as good as a lot of artists here but I think I'll try my very best to get a lot of details and the right pose :p)
2nd place: 5,000.00 XP
3rd place: 3,000.00 XP

Photoshop is allowed or you can draw it, any art program is accepted

The deadline for entries is Midnight EST April 30th, 2011. Good luck and if you have any questions about this project, feel free to send me a VM or PM :)

EDIT: A great friend of mine by the name of Darkcloudrepeat will be helping me judge the entries

Gee.. I guess I'll give it a shot. Say, does it have to be about a Particular level or can it foreshadow something amazing? I'd like it to express my creation slumps and whatnot if that's okay.

I just hope I don't draw too much energy from this contest! Farfle farfle...

@psyntens: Love the poster dude, managed to see it before the link broke, hope you can fix that though :p

@fireblitz95: What Dark said xD (Thanks by the way Dark for answering his question for me :p)

@-LuckyMix-: What you're saying sounds pretty cool and might be acceptable but if you could go a bit more into detail about what you mean by "express my creation slumps and whatnot". Also, farfle, farfle? xD -insert Ricky Bobby scene, "What is, the shake and bake?"-

http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff393/valmassoilbpc/The%20Circle%20Series/TheCircleBanner.png

Let me explain again, the Circle is a series that has a story which never ends. Every level leads to the next one, and that is why it the banner is like that.
There will be 4 levels:

The Flower
The Wheel
The Star
The Darkness

Those put together and it makes the circle :D


Some cool entries so far! :)

"Some" lol

Hmm, you do make a good point. How about I do extend the deadline to the 30th to give some people more time and if at any time you need to change your entry, you can do so as long as it's before the deadline, a.k.a April 30th Midnight EST

Thanks, and the blending I didn't do in Paint, I simply got a blank level, made it pitch black and added a neon light hovering slightly over my sack's head. :)

Also Dark, I think that might be good but if anything happens that might delay judging, I'll make sure to tell you gaiz here. By the way THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE VERY KIND DONATION. Gotta get off now but next time I'm on, I'll add your donation to the prizes.

@ warlord evil

you know you still have like 8 hours right ? lol
Not anymore! :p

I'm still gonna make a poster though, the submitted entries created here have inspired me to do so, of course the poster I make won't be for the contest now. :D
