Hey peoples of Planet Minecraft! From all the skin shops popping up every day, I know we have many wonderfully talented skinners in our community just desperate for a challenge.

I thought I'd provide a fun way for skinners to get to know each other, put their work out there, and put themselves to the test for a prize! So I present to thee:


HAPPYBANDAID'S
PLANET MINECRAFT SKIN CONTEST!


*Contest is OVER!! Congratulations to the winners!!!*


First of all, I want to say THANKS SO MUCH to EVERYONE who submitted, you guys (and girls) are AMAZING!! The response was overwhelming, far more than I ever expected, and we had so many incredible skins and skinners submit to the contest! If I could have it my way, you guys would all win, but I guess that would make winning worth that much less then, wouldn't it? =) Plus my hand would be REALLY tired from all those drawings...

SO, without further ado, I present to you THE WINNERS!!!:

IN FIRST PLACE:

Halucid's Sorcerer of Baelfire

View Sorceror of Baelfire

IN SECOND PLACE:

SuperSodaPop's Hooded Ranger

View The Hooded Ranger

AND, TIED FOR THIRD ARE:

Studnicky's Bear Hunter

View The Bear Hunter (Contest Skin)

and Webball's Fire Paladin

View Fire Paladin Skeleton by Webball

PRIZES!!:

1ST: TBA

2ND:



3RD (TIE):



3RD (TIE):



CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS!!!! You deserve it!! A big thank you to the judges as well, especially Griff Morivan who helped out a lot at the last minute!!

Your skins will be drawn within the week, and the drawings will be signed specifically to you =) (hopefully, haha, since it turns out I have to draw 4 now).

Fourth place:
The Diamond Guardian by Hoodedone11

Fifth Place:
Sorcerer of Despair by TwebDude

Sixth place:
Dragon Hiding as Human by HakkeKoshu

Seventh Place:
Urk the Goblin by sgt_hatred

*Notice: Contest entries MUST be uploaded to your profile!!
Make sure that when you submit your skin by posting it in this thread that you give me a picture or at least a link of it from your profile!! Also,skins must be made specifically for this contest, not older ones you've made. Thanks.*



THEME: Medieval/Fantasy characters
This could be anything from peasants and knights and kings to rogues and wizards. Be creative, but stick to the theme and make up an original character to do a skin of! Think swords & sorcery, Dungeons and Dragons, or Robin Hood type characters.

REQUIREMENTS: Make a new and original skin for the contest.
It must be a character made up by you that fits with the theme!

The skin that is deemed to involve the most skill, artistic talent, imagination and just overall looks good will be the winner.


PRIZE: I will draw a full body black and white detailed sketch of the first place character skin. Second place will get a drawing from the waist up and third place will get a bust (upper chest, shoulders, head).
I'll put the winner's name on it to make it specifically theirs. If you love skins but aren't into making them, PM me and I'll make you a judge as well. the job of judges is to help determine the winner by voting for their top 5 and also to just help around the thread, answering questions and such.

JUDGES WILL ALSO BE CHECKING UP ON SUSPICIOUS SKINS TO MAKE SURE UNORIGINAL CONTENT IS NOT SUBMITTED!

*Judges:*

JustApples

Burleyman24
Griff Morivan


There will now be prizes for first and second place! If we get a few more submissions there will be a third place prize as well. The second and third place prizes will also be drawings of the corresponding winner's submitted skin, but I'l spend the most time and effort on the first place winner's drawing. =)

You can see a few examples of my artwork here: http://akarishinsei.deviantart.com/



The contest rules are these:

1) Only ORIGINAL submissions made by YOU.
If you submit a skin that is not made by you I will hunt you down and bite you.

2) Make a NEW skin JUST for this contest of an original character made up by you!

3) Write a SHORT DESCRIPTION of your original character.

4) Your submission MUST be MEDIEVAL/ FANTASY THEMED!
Submissions outside of the theme, however good, WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!
No spacemen or aliens or secret agents in suits, etc. But maybe I'll have more differently themed contests in the future if this one goes well.

5) Number of submissions per person: One!

6) All submissions must, of course, comply with the Planet Minecraft rules.

The contest will END in TEN DAYS FROM NOW, on SEPTEMBER 5TH by MIDNIGHT, Pacific time.

On the 6th I will choose a winner and begin drawing their submitted character. I will notify the winner within a week and send them the completed drawing.

HAPPY SKINNING, PEOPLES!

Thanks man!!

And a signature contest would be a great idea! I used to make signatures a loong time ago but realized that there were so many much more talented people than me, haha! So I stick to hand drawing instead. =)

But yes, I do wanna put up a poll voting for the next contest theme soon. My friend might also join in on helping with the contest and drawing some prizes and she's even better than me!

Oh, well I know it took my like 3 weeks to post those haha but the actual drawing itself probably takes about an hour or so, two at most, and preparing beforehand can take anywhere from no time at all to several hours, sketching and deciding how I want the drawing to look and doing research if I have to (like I did for the archer and flaming skull dude). For all these drawings I used a Wacom Bamboo drawing tablet. This costs about 60 bucks, it's on the cheaper end and is basic but it's well-made, quality, and does its job well. I'd highly recommend this drawing tablet for budding digital artists. To draw in, I used the open source drawing program My Paint.

I just need to find a good time (this could be anywhere from mid-afternoon to 3:00 in the morning) where I am inspired as well as mentally and physically prepared to concentrate on the drawing at hand (this generally requires a good night's rest the night before). Generally I do some warm-up sketches first, listen to some music that fits the mood I want in the drawing or inspires me, and look at amazing art (such as work by professional concept artists) to inspire me as well.

That's all bogus though. When it comes down to it, really, I just sit down and draw. =)

Okay, yeah I pretty much was just worried because I didn't want to leave you out when I posted them all, Halucid. Thanks for the OK, I'm sure everyone will be super happy. I just want to put in extra effort on yours since I thought your skin was the best and you very rightfully earned that first place. =)

So, without further ado, here we go (click on the pics and then click again to see them bigger!):

Just an update - Yes I'm alive, Sorry for taking so long with the drawings.

I have two of them completed and am finishing up the last two. I'll post them all on here at the same time and also PM the winners their personal drawings.

All drawings are personalized with the respective winner's names.

They'll be done soon! A combination of friends, 1.8, and a lack of inspiration caused them to take a littler longer to get to. But, they are coming out great and I hope you guys will like them! =D

By the way, current status on the drawings:

I started out trying to sketch the hooded ranger cause I wanted him in a cool pose like shooting a bow down from a tree but I kinda utterly failed so I was bummed for the next day but that night I started looking at some good concept art and listening to red hot chili peppers and did complete preliminary sketches for the Sorcerer of Baelfire, the Bear Hunter, AND the Flame Paladin!! Still trying to work on that frustrating ranger, I just can't get him right...

Also, for the prizes I'm gonna say about two weeks maximum, since I wanna give everyone their prizes at once, do a good job on them, and I have an additional drawing to do. Hopefully they will take more like one week or even less to complete, it just depends on my inspiration and real life schedule.

But I promise that you will receive your prizes, winners!

Now, now. There's no reason to assume that. In fact, I suggest we drop it before this turns into a full-blown flame war. Please.

We should be discussing more contests, while eagerly awaiting Happy's artwork.
