Cyprezz wants U!


Just a little picture I whipped up for you guys. ;)



Hey guys! Happybandaid here, bringing you the latest poll so you guys can vote on what theme you want to skin or see the most! The poll will end on the 7th.

Feel free to ask any questions about the themes, contests, etc here.

Have fun! :]

- Hband

Mythical Figures and Beasts must be a creature or person from ancient historical myth or legend. No book/movie characters.


Made-up Superheroes and Original Supervillains means they have to be 100% designed by you, no pre-existing superheroes/supervillains like Superman/The Joker. Create your own!


Cyberpunk is a science fiction genre focused on "high tech and low life," advanced science such as cybernetics, hackers, artificial intelligences, megacorporations, technology used in unexpected ways and tends to be set in a near-future Earth, which has gone through a breakdown of cultural and social decay. Much of the genre's atmosphere echoes film noir and detective fiction.

"Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body." – Lawrence Person

"Cyber" was derived from cybernetics, a control theory that studies, for example, human/machine interaction and is often used in connection with information technology. "Punk" was taken from from punk rock music, suggesting an urban anti-establishment sensibility.

Cyberpunk is a form of speculative fiction that deals with a high-technology future. Cyberpunk is almost never happy, and usually leaves the reader in a 'life sucks' mood. . Cyberpunk is a warning as to what might happen in the future.

Films that deal with cyberpunk theme: (please help me with more examples this is all i could think of xD)

-Blade Runner
-Johnny Mnemonic
-The Matrix

Cyberpunk is about expressing (often dark) ideas about human nature, technology and their respective combination in the near future


In summary, think about what technology would be like in the near future, but the future is also bleak and terrible with social disorder.

This contest is really lacking originality...
I've reported around 10 stolen skins.
And there is an overload of cyclops that are being submitted. Very dissappointing.

Just to clarify, guys, Mythical Figures and Beasts must be a creature or person from ancient historical myth or legend.

No book/movie characters...although that might be a good idea for a future contest.

fishpopMythical Figures and Beasts will win I bet all my pmc exp

Of course they will, that's obvious

Sneeze7yeah ive been researching quite a bit myself, i started last contest when it almost was winning, so i had gathered some ideas and im going to try to execute them :3 77

But i think concept is really simple if you just look around on teh interwebz a bit.

Well I have mine so I'm happy when it wins

Btw... Will I be allowed to submit a character that isn't really mythical, but rather from a book? I think the character has appeared (not more than one or two times...) in other lore, but I can't find it... :/

PM me and I'll tell you if it will be allowed. =)

Now, I already did some "research" on the topic of mythical beings and while I was going down the (endless...) list of said creatures, I took notice to the fact that almost every beast that would be interesting as a skin has either already been made, closely resembles some other one or is practically impossible to effectively show the specific details in a skin.
Yes, there are exceptions, but if you take into account that there will be at least 1500 submissions, you can't possibly expect loads of originality, can you?

That is just my opinion, please state your own.

Mythical creatures would definitely bring alot of competition and creativity to this contest, but I would rather see the made up super heroes and villains due to the 100% chance of practically no one having the same idea except maybe on the rare coincidental occasion where maybe around 5 skins may have similar features... but I'm ok with any of these categories and would gladly participate in any of them.

Grats on your goal, but you didn't really make a point. I'm just encouraging people to vote for mythical creatures to improve the quality of the contest and the great skins that will come out of it.


It just sounded like you denied (and still deny) the mere possibility that some other users may be right and Made-up Superheroes (and/or Cyberpunk) would be more creative and interesting than the other themes available for voting.

I posted with exactly that in mind, so it was fitting that I quoted that specific rule.

Cool website! Remember, it's also recommended to add your creativity make your own version of something. And even getting into a Wikipedia loop of mythical creatures and figures, you'll learn about a lot of new and unexpected things! =) It's super fun.

There's so much out there! Just pick a cool one which inspires you or which you just like and go with it.

Good luck, y'all.

As we've said before, it's up to you to be original in the genre if you want to get a good score. :3

If you think dwarves, unicorns, mermaids, dragons, etc. are common skins...break the norm, and find something more interesting to base your skin off of. =)

A little research goes a long way.

Contests??? :O You're not really implying there are going to be several, are you?!

BTW. Why is everyone picking mythical creatures and beasts? Aren't skin contests supposed to be about bringing new ideas to skin makers, making them create skins nobody has done before? There are lots of dwarves, unicorns and mermaids already!
Cyberpunk and made-up superheroes are the new and creative themes here, the themes we're supposed to be picking!
Imagine how much more interesting the skin section would look if one of those themes were picked and everybody started making such of skins...

Neekingtimevoting on this is great. this will assure that all of the little derps may have there way. and make way for a whole new system of scoring on the contests: impress all the immature children of this site.

i refuse to take part.


Seriously, stop complaining, everyone is having fun, and why did you all of the sudden get so rebellish? you've already taken part in all contests, so something must have been good about them.

I think it's because s/he didn't get into the top 100 on the video game chars contest.

Yes he did, he just deleted his entry, he was 18th or something. :3


I was 50th , doesn't bother me

I like it as it gives me a chance to a) get some more publicity (it was my most diamond-ed skin ever and i got a few more subs) and b) I get to break away from what i normally do (anime) and try something a little different. Though in hindsight picking a JRPG character , maybe not so much different xD
