    Art Competition
    Issue 3
    Please read the new rules for entry submission at the bottom!


    Subject: This time around, you will be designing an NES game cover. Make up a game or work with an existing one, your preference. I built a template (.ai and .psd) you can use in your entry, or you can go it alone and use something completely original. Try to keep with an old school theme, ie, sprite work or off-the-wall 80's art, but this isn't required.
    Rules:
    -All entries must be rectangular in proportion, in any format you wish as long as it is viewable in a web browser, and most preferably embeddable in a post. (JPG, PNG, Gif, SWF, etc)

    -No nudity, pornography, etc. All content must adhere to forum rules!

    -All entries are due by 12:00AM 5/26/07 (26/5/07) Kyoji time, which is Eastern (GMT -5:00). Any entries after this time will not be included for voting!


    Supplemental Material:
    NES Cover template: Illustrator or Photoshop

    Winners from last competiton:
    #1: Tshu with 65 points
    #2: Dirtie with 51 points
    #3: Psyfira with 43 points.

    Well done!

    Contestants:
    -Kyoji
    -iamwhoiam
    -.TakaM
    -Lagman
    -AshuraZero

    Entry submission will be closed; DO NOT post your entry here. You can post saying you will participate, or about the contest, but I request all entries be PM'd to me. I will host all of them on my personal web space.

    The moment I read "NES game cover", I had an image in my head and I think I'll be working on it for an hour or two right now. I'm in!

    The .psd worked fine for me in CS3; I didnt check compatibility with other versions. I created the .psd using Illustrator CS2, so I imagined there shouldn't be many problems..

    Ok, i still have Photoshop CS, but I'll try to enter.

    Here's a dumb question though: You said that we can enter a SWF or BMP into the contest. Are "moving" images allowed or not? Even though box art doesn't move in the real world, this isn't [​IMG]

    And if i plan on making a SWF entry, i'll port the template to a flash 8 .fla file. (if Kyoji lets me)

    You can enter a .swf if you like, but please keep it static.

    To people having trouble with the template: other posters in this thread are right, the text vectors do not load in older versions of Photoshop. The layers seem to work fine though. Other old programs that can open .psd files can't open the file at all (namebly PSP7).

    I have the template (with raster text) saved as a layered .PSP (for Paint Shop Pro 7) and a flat .png if anyone's interested, PM and I'll email it over (don't got one of these fancy upload webspace things).

    @ Kyoji (or anyone with a working template): what font was used for the title text? (figured it'd be quicker to ask than try to work it out [​IMG]). Also, in future would it be possible to provide the templates in a non-layered universal format as well (such as png or jpg) for people who don't have fancy graphics progs? (I'm thinking of the MSPaint crowd here).
