MangaRaiders Second Annual Mascot Contest!
« on: October 14, 2014, 10:36:39 PM »
MangaRaiders proudly presents…
The Second Annual Mascot Contest!

That's right, it's been a year since the first annual Mascot Contest, and it’s time to choose a new mascot for the forum!

Please make sure to read all the rules before submitting your entries!


Contest rules:

When you submit your designs, you must agree to give permission for your design, if it wins, to be used by all members in both online and printed work.

We will accept both group and solo entries, and the maximum amount of members in a group will be 3.

There is a maximum of 2 designs per solo contestant or group.

There can only be 1 character in each design. In other words, you can have 2 characters, but they have to be on separate designs.

The designs cannot contain anything gory or graphic. The image will be shown all across the site for members of all ages to see, so please keep it appropriate. :noyoudon't:

The mascot can be anything you wish, as long as it follows the rules. Human, animal, whatever you think fits the forum. Let your creativity flow!

Every design must be the same size and format. The size will be A6 paper. (Pixel size varies by program)

Examples can be downloaded here:
JPG: http://www.mediafire.com/view/2i2a8migr95fd36/MR-JPG-A6.jpg#
PSD: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ky05j9n0xinpziv/MR-PSD-A6.psd

The required format will be PNG. Please make your image’s resolution 300dpi (dots per inch). If you don’t know how to set dpi, most art/image editing programs have the option in the same section you set the image size in. If you can’t find it, you can just search it online. ^-^

If you can, please make your image's background transparent. The file must be saved as PNG to support transparency.

Please keep in mind:
The winning design will be featured all across the site, including in the site banner. Please keep that in mind while designing, that while it doesn’t have to match, the design’s colors and such should look good against the website.

Also, please try your best to make your design adaptable, so colors or clothes can be changed if the forum skin changes before the next mascot contest.

The contest deadline is March 1st. Voting will start March 2nd and end March 16th.

Our first contest received many wonderful entries, but this year we hope to receive many more! It doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur or an expert, this contest is open to everyone of all skill levels. All that matters is having fun!

Good luck and have fun, everybody!

This is our current mascot until the second mascot is announced:

The prize is, basically, that your created mascot becomes the representation of MR for a year.

It's the one you see on top header banner. Also you can see it in Home page. We didn't give any prizes for first one but this time we might give a small gift to the winner. Just a small thing. :) That's apart from your art will appear on every banner and graphic notice we make about MR.

Well technically the first mascot was intended for that but delays occured that led it to not be so well known..
Stop playing victim....you know what you did.

Pretty slapped together, but it's really all that came to mind.

Idk, I really like the idea of an ink creature (and of course I like cat's and fox like creatures).
And a manga sensei. I wanted her to be some what connected to the previous mascot so I made her purple.

I don't really have any other designs in mind.

I actually have an idea of what to draw for the next mascot. However, it seems the contest is over. Will an extension be placed until mid/end of January, or will their be a repeat mascot?

 :hmm:

The dates are technically correct, but if enough people show interest, I'd be happy to extend the contest. What do you say, guys? ;D
