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


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.

Deep Space
- While we all go about our day to day activities, there's something bigger happening all around us of which none know the true plot line, beginning, middle or end, if there even is one. It's playing out on an unimaginably grand scale of space & time to cover just a few dimensions of our proposed reality. Hmm. Now that you're attempting to think about the bigger picture, focus on "Deep Space", not easy but travel for a while and when you imagine something that inspires a Minecraft skin, create and share what you discovered.

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.

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!

Fashion Show
- Fashion comes in all styles but they all try to make a statement. Dress up your skin for a fashion show! It doesn't have to be for a glamorous event red carpet event. It might be your own fashion for that matter. Use the description to explain the statement your fashionable skin is trying to make!

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.





This poll will run for about 5 days. Get your votes in!

PMC, am I allowed to make a skin designed to look like a Villager, but not copied from the JAR? I am trying to be nice about the Villagers not winning because barely anyone read the description for Deep Space. Villagers are also my favorite mob (as if it wasn't obvious by my profile pic). I don't know if that would count as a "paint-over".

Yeahhhh...

Sorry to break it to you, but the Deep Space competition isn't going to be an outer space themed competition.

While we all go about our day to day activities, there's something bigger happening all around us of which none know the true plot line, beginning, middle or end, if there even is one. It's playing out on an unimaginably grand scale of space & time to cover just a few dimensions of our proposed reality. Hmm. Now that you're attempting to think about the bigger picture, focus on "Deep Space", not easy but travel for a while and when you imagine something that inspires a Minecraft skin, create and share what you discovered.

Have fun staring at stuff and making skins about it...

Actually, Villagers got 2nd place (50 votes). If it weren't for that pesky "reality of reality" contest idea we would have won.

I personally think most people voted for Deep Space because they misunderstood what the competition was about.

It's playing out on an unimaginably grand scale of space & time to cover just a few dimensions of our proposed reality. Hmm.

You have to make something about, like, the "reality of reality"... Something that, for lack of a better term, can be described as "deep".

I don't know how I could make a Villager that is... err... "deep".

from the looks of the description, if anything it appears to both include general outerspace type stuff as well as surreal interdimensional themes - think Interstellar which delved into both

i think those that voted for deep space will be satisfied, and im excited for it too

The idea of the competition is, as you say it, "surreal inter-dimensional themes"

It's playing out on an unimaginably grand scale of space & time to cover just a few dimensions of our proposed reality. Hmm.

Is it not obvious?

If I'm still allowed to make a Villager then I guess it's okay...

I wasn't allowed to make "paint-overs" or use any Vanilla-esque (for lack of a better term) stuff for the Scrapyard contest and that's the main reason why I didn't submit my skin.

Also, the "Deep Space" isn't what most people thought it was.

It isn't an outer space-themed competition (if it was, then I could have just made a Lord Vader and submitted that).

No, it is this:

While we all go about our day to day activities, there's something bigger happening all around us of which none know the true plot line, beginning, middle or end, if there even is one. It's playing out on an unimaginably grand scale of space & time to cover just a few dimensions of our proposed reality. Hmm. Now that you're attempting to think about the bigger picture, focus on "Deep Space", not easy but travel for a while and when you imagine something that inspires a Minecraft skin, create and share what you discovered.

People are not gonna be happy when they realize they voted for the wrong competition.

(P.S. I also could have made Vader for the Disguises, but an Illager spy would be a lot better)

Wait, it does mean outer space. "...focus on "Deep Space", not easy but travel for a while and when you imagine something that inspires a Minecraft skin, create and share what you discovered..." That means spend time focusing on outer space and when you come up with something cool, make a skin out of it and post it.

In case you want to know, Book 2 is titled "From Seeds to Swords", book 3 is "Crafting Alliances", book 4 is "The Path of the Diamond", 5 is "Quest Mode", and the last book (#6) is "Forging Destiny".

The series is about a young Villager named Runt who wants to become a warrior and defend his village, VillageTown, from Herobrine's mob attacks. His training ends in book 4, and I'm not going to spoil books 5/6 :) (I haven't even read book 6 yet so I can't spoil it if I want to)

It is a really amazing series.
