Cute vs. Creepy Monsters skin contest

The Madness skin contest has come to an end and the winners have been announced. So it's time to launch a new skin contest. This time themed Cute vs. Creepy Monsters! :D


Theme


It kind of speaks for itself, but this contest consists of two categories. Cute monsters and Creepy monsters. We're looking for monsters like the ones in children's stories (Monsters, Inc. and similar). So; creatures from your imagination. Beasts with scary scales or fluffy fur, sharp teeth or adorable big eyes.


Rules

Other than keeping to the specified theme, the following rules are in place:
  • Each participant is allowed to make one cute monster and one creepy monster. You could make a skin for both categories or for just one!
  • No making half/half cute AND creepy monsters. They must be either cute OR creepy.
  • No humans or real animals! Also no monster onesies or hoodies etc. (Human-like or animal-like monsters are allowed.)
  • Monsters must be of your own design, so no making existing monsters from movies etc. (Taking inspiration is allowed.)
  • The skin(s) must be newly made by you for this contest.
  • Judges cannot enter and cannot give feedback on entries before the deadline.
  • To enter a skin in this contest, post a link to your entry in the comments to this forum post.
  • You can edit and update your contest skin(s) as much as you like before the deadline.

Deadline

The deadline for this contest is August 5, 2018


Judging


This time around, PMC and Palettes will be joining me as judges. We'll be judging the cute monsters based on how sweet and huggable they are, and the creepy monsters based on how scary they are! This means that the design of your skin(s) is the most important aspect which the entries will be judged by.

There will be a top-3 cute monsters and a top-3 creepy monsters. So the same participant could place twice!


Prizes

The main goal of this contest is for everyone to have fun, so the most important prize is the honor of winning.

A dedicated forum post will be made to announce the winners. The winning skins will be featured in an official PMC twitter post, a PMC support wall post and in a custom widget on my (DinowCookie) profile.

New! The first place winners will receive a render of their skin made by PixelFrosty!
Render example

I'll make sure to make some nice unofficial participation badges and trophies as well. :D

Yaaaasss! I’m totally joining! This is my time time improve my shading! :3

EDIT: uuumm... I just realized I entered another contest! I have to do this contest, then a reshade contest, and then the Madman skin, then a request?! And even worse, I can only make skins like 3 days a week! I can’t have promises but I’ll try. :)

Actually, I feel really bad about quitting the madman one, but could you do it? :’( I’m honestly really sorry about quitting it, but I hope more people will join and replace. Also, sorry. I couldn’t answer right away because I had reading homework. But any way, thank you for giving me an option. :)
