how_to_vote VOTE FOR THE SKIN CONTEST THEME!
Winning theme will run for the month of AUGUST


Review the ideas below and remember to vote for the one you like the best, not the one you think is going to win!




Power of Light
- When an artist is aware of it's power, lighting can be the largest contributor to defining the tone & mood of a work of art. From film to photography to Minecraft skins, an artists choice of lighting is one of the first things a viewer picks up on before the mind moves on to interpreting the finer details. In addition to the first impression, selective lighting can draw a viewers attention to one or more aspects the artist intends to highlight. For this skin contest theme, your challenge is to think about how you can use lightning as a artistic tool from establishing a first impression to guiding our eye through the use of selective highlighting & shading.

Medieval Times
- Let's go back to a time when life was simple but staying alive was difficult. MEDIEVAL TIIIMES!! It's a period of time when politics, classes and roles were well defined to keep the order in attempt to thrive as an empire or die by the sword or to famine, disease or dragons! Dragons? Yes, for this medieval contest skin theme, we would allow fantasy.

Aztecs & Egyptians
- Two of the most fascinating civilizations of this world have inspired and perplexed modern minds in countless ways. Let their cultures inspire your mind to create a relevant Minecraft skin!

Villagers
- In the spirit of the latest 1.14 Minecraft update, let's make skins to populate classic villager professions. It would be limited to a list of specific professions: blacksmith, armorer, baker, butcher, farmer, merchant, fisherman, innkeeper, librarian, carpenter, tailer, alchemist, herbalist, calligrapher, bar tender & scribe. Pending finalization but this is a decent list.

Fright Night
- What goes bump in the night?! Let's make skins that make your skin craaawl! Nightmares, goose bumps, tales from the crypt, animatronic teddy bears, demons, ghouls, goblins... MOOONSTERS from your imagination. Let's bring them all into Minecraft! MuhahahahHAHAHA HAHA *cough* *hak* *ahem* hAHHAHaha ha.

DawnBringer's 32 Color Palette (DB32)
- Palette restriction with the intention to inspire creativity. You'll be restricted to colors in the famous DB32 color palette. What you do with the palette will be up to you. If you've never used a color palette before, this is a great one to start with! Original creator & more information here.


Dance Off
- Musical tastes are as diverse as the sources of inspiration during it's creation. Make a skin that relates to music whether it's by genre, lifestyle, celebrity or culture. Let the music flow through your Minecraft Skin or into your ears at least. Either way, dance party and/or head banging is encouraged. Show us what you got!

City Life
- The city's alive with the hustle and bustle of hundreds of thousands of people! From the frequenters of a trendy coffee-shop on the corner, to the diligent crew of construction workers keeping the metropolis in shape, and everything between, create someone (or something!) that calls the city its home!

Disguises
- If it weren't for those meddling kids, I would have gotten away with it! It's time to pull off those masks and show who was really behind the deed. Make a skin that makes use of the hat layer to disguise what's underneath.

We are all saddened by the loss.

We just need to gain more supporters next time.

People think Villagers are "ugly big-nosed mutants".

We need to prove otherwise, if we are to win next time.

Any thoughts?

Yes! Villagers need more recognition. They are a key entity in Vanilla Minecraft, and should be celebrated more.

Yesssss

Should we make a bunch of Villager skins for the Medieval contest (Villager King, Villager Knight, Villager Jester, etc)

Or should there be a mod where you have to live as a Villager, which we post on CurseForge, here (PMC), MCF, etc?

What are your ideas?

I'm glad villagers didn't win, honestly (I wouldn't be able to do it because I wouldn't know what to do really), but for some reason the name Edward makes me think of Squidward.

Just make a 3-pixel tall 2-pixel long nose as overlay on the bottom part of the front of the face, emerald green eyes, 6-pixel long unibrow, then dress him up however you want.

Also, no-one ever said anything about Edward.

You said Edward reminds you of Squidward, not the reverse.

Yes, ik, but it was on the topic of Squidwards. When he said Squidward, it made me think of my weird association between Edward and Squidward.

The Villagers are nice enough not to send a couple billion Iron Golems hunt you down because you said that ;-)









(I put a winky face on purpose, to indicate that I was making a joke. The Villagers keep getting second place in the skin contests, and it's about time they won. That's why people are so, as you say it, "flamed" around the Villagers. We barely lost and we want to win for once)

Man, disguises would've been a lot of fun. Medieval is so boring and generic compared to the rest. Unfortunate, to say the least.

If you dont vote for palette at least vote for power of light. Whenever we get one historic or culturish based, we get way less entries because barely anybody likes them, the power of light and color palette are the only actual unique challenges, and not just a theme. Villagers just sounds like a skin collection event

Dance off 100%. It would give the opportunity for people to show off their taste in music from rock to pop to rap and would prompt many unique skins. If not, probably color pallet or power of light because they sound challenging!

Same! It really does sound like a fun concept for this month since Fright Night is more suitable for Halloween than it.

But then again, maybe I should change my vote to villagers considering it's the avatar that I drew for myself??
