*** Contest ended! View results! :D ***



Welcome to a new skin contest. For this contest your entry will be a skin for redstone engineers to use.

Redstone can be seen as a Minecraft equivalent to electricity. Redstone engineers are Minecraft players who like to use redstone to create a broad variety of contraptions and devices. Creations can be as simple as a piston door or melon farm, or as complex as a real-time clock or a tape-drive, the possibilities are endless! :D


Theme


The challenge of this contest will be for you to create a skin which is inspired by redstone engineering, for redstone engineers to use. This means you can make an average looking engineer, a redstone golem or a person dressed in a redstone-themed outfit, anything goes! As long as it relates to the redstone engineering theme.


Rules


Aside from the basic PMC rules, there are a few rules in place for this contest:
  • You can enter any number of skins, but each must be significantly different. Only one of your entries can place in the top-3!
  • Any entry must be newly made by only you, specifically for this contest.
  • You may update your entries as much as you like before the deadline.
  • Upload your skin to PMC and comment on this thread to submit your entry. (A new comment please, not a reply to a previous comment.)
  • You don't need to sign up for this contest, just make a skin and submit it! :D
  • Add "redstone" as a tag to your entry.


Deadline


This contest ends on September 2, 2018


Judging

The entries in this contest will be judged by two points. The first point is usability; is this a skin which a redstone engineer would be happy to use? The second point is technique; how good is the shading,coloring and overall look of your skin?

Darth Theoden will be joining me as a judge for this contest. We will be picking a top-3 of winners in a discussion between us two.

Even if you don't think you have a chance of winning, any entry in this contest is highly appreciated. Redstone engineers are generally known to be very creative with logic and less creative with pixel painting. There aren't many redstone engineers skins available, so it would be a nice thing to give to the community! :D


Prizes
*

Trophies:
The most important prize is, of course, the honor of winning! ;) Other than that I will have a participation badge for each participant, and a trophy for each winner, for display on your PMC profile.

Features: The winners will be announced on a dedicated forum post, and featured on my (DinowCookie) PMC profile.They will also be featured on the RedSignal website, which is the website to _Phrozenbit_'s redstone free-build server.

Collab: If interested, the #1 winner can request a skin template (for you to shade!) or a custom color palette for a skin from me (DinowCookie), which you can use to create your own skin with to post to your PMC profile. Much like a collaboration.

Render: Last but certainly not least, you can win a render of any skin of your choice by PixelFrosty! Keep in mind that he will be away the entire month of September, so you will have to wait about a month to receive this prize. We wanted to have this prize available for this contest regardless. ^_^

Example of renders for previous contest winners.

* Prizes may be added to and/or slightly adjusted before the deadline.


Entries

Your entries will be listed in this forum topic. Good luck and have fun creating your redstone-engineer-themed skin(s)!

Thank you! It is a very creative way of using the theme but it still fits.

Also, if you want, this contest allows you to make more than one entry. :)

No, it should be something a redstone user/(engineers) would use. It does not need to be a red outfit or skin.

Now, you can take engineer literally and do something like I did with the technician and recreate an engineer, but for redstone, so I recreated somebody like this:

, but themed it to redstone. You could do the same (but make it different than mine obviously) or take another job like architect, scientist, programmer, composer for note blocks, pyrotechnician, mob trapper, miner of redstone, or somebody who would test redstone devices, like some test pilot for an elytra launcher for example

Pretty much anybody who would use redstone, or make your own redstone creature (Golem) or redstone powered robot

Thank you for trying to answer their question. ^_^ Sahu's problem is (I believe) the language barrier. It's not because the theme is complex, so to explain in simple English is what would help in this case.

Appreciate it, though! :D

Hi, I might enter, but might not be able to if I can't create a powerful idea. If I can, my entry might come in a bit late but I will try my best. Sorry if someone already asked this, but are transparencies aloud?

Skins will be judged on usability in Java Minecraft so if your transparency works in-game, it's fine on your skin ^_^

Hope you'll be able to make a skin in time! :D

You got to test those contraption like an Elytra launcher or TNT elevator with some manner of safety, so a test subject like a robot might come in handy, like this Redstone Test-Robot
as a new entry

Oops! Probably do to repeatedly resizing in Photoshop. Not going to bother change it but next time I'll do any pixel resizing in Paint.net instead, seems to go better. :P
