how_to_vote VOTE FOR THE 1st MOB SKIN CONTEST/EVENT THEME!
Winning theme will run for the month of March 2020!

The community pitched many mob skin contest theme ideas and we've selected several of the communities favorites for the poll below. If your idea isn't an option this time, it doesn't mean it won't be cycled into a poll in the future. Feel free to pitch new mob theme ideas at any time!

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

Note: The final titles & descriptions may change in the official contest or event but the concept will stay true to the themes presented below.



What lurks beneath [ Contest | Any model ] idea pitched by Fyram
Re-imagine and design a mob that you'd find underground or in the depths of the sea. You can choose any model, it does not need to be a mob that currently spawns underground or in the sea.

Mythical Monsters [ Contest | Any model excluding objects ] idea pitched by Makaneek
Ancient Mythology had many terrifying and fascinating imaginary creatures, and now it's time to portray them in Minecraft. Create a mob skin that depicts a Monster or creature of ancient legends and lore. Please use only creatures that real human cultures believed in at some point in history. There are tons to choose from.

Beasts of the Colosseum [ Event (Max 5 Entries) | Any model ] idea pitched by Romecraft Community
In the heyday of ancient Rome, amphitheaters across the empire were alive with the sound of gladiators, who would spend day after day facing off against not only other gladiators, but a host of ferocious beasts from all over the ancient world. These beasts were quite a spectacle for an ancient Roman back in the day!

There was a large assortment of beasts in the arena including elephants, lions, tigers, bears, deer, wild goats, leopards, boars, crocodiles, hippopotamuses, rabbits, wild boar, giraffes, and many others. For the sake of not limiting the potential so much, you could also include other animals of antiquity. Some other ideas would be a any ancient dog breeds like the Greek Molossus or Roman Cane Corso dog, any cat breeds originating in ancient Egypt, the wild Aurochs, camels, or anything else that just feels right for the time period.

Age of Dragons [ Contest | Ender Dragon model only ] idea pitched by DinowCookie
Participants take on the epic challenge of re-texturing the Ender Dragon!

Pre-Historic Minecraft Mobs [ Contest | Any model excluding objects ] idea pitched by Shady_Warlock
Let's turn back the clock millions of years and see the primitive version of the mobs, whether it's a caveman villager or a dino ravager or something befitting the periods pre-dating recorded history.

Mobs of Minecraft Re-imagined [ Event (Max 5 Entries) | Any mode excluding objects ] idea pitched by DinowCookie
Forget every original Minecraft mob texture you've seen before. Each mob-model is a blank canvas and it's up to you to come up with a brand new, original design for the critters that are roaming around everyone's Minecraft worlds. In this event, you get to re-imagine what mobs could look like within the lore and surroundings of vanilla/original Minecraft.

Laboratory Experiments II (Mob Edition) [ Contest | All models ] idea pitched by Auri
Was it born, built or bred in a lab? Made from steel, flesh, or something else altogether?
Are you a necromancer, occultist, mad scientist, a wizard... or maybe simply a keen biomed major?
Whoever, or whatever you are, the laboratory lies open to you.
What creations will you unleash?

Sci-fi High Fantasy Monsters [ Event (Max 2 entries) | Hostile Mobs Only ] idea pitched by Nozo
In the golden age of CRPGs the three most popular CRPG games (80s/early 90s) where the Might and Magic series, Ultima series and Wizardry series. These three games had some things in common which many modern CRPGs lack- science fiction in a high fantasy setting (though Ultima lacks the most out of the three). Those three games invented the CPRG genre effectively.

How will you mash these two genres together creating a unique monster! Perhaps you would create a creature powered by technology masked as magic on a world. Or perhaps the hostile monster is aided by both magic and technology? The choice is yours! Do whatever as long as it is retained within the two genres!

Mobs in Space [ Contest | Any model ] idea pitched by the almighty birb
Time to channel your inner space nerd! The goal is to create the best space-themed animal or mob skin you can imagine. To infinity, and beyond!

Household Items [ Contest | Any model ] idea pitched by LemilasTheElf
Re-texture a mob into something you would find in a house, such as furniture, decorations, dishes, appliances... Anything, as long as it's a common household item.

Skin contests get more people to enter. In the last year not many people have entered build contests. They just aren’t as popular.

I like build contests more too - building is more central to Minecraft than skinning, after all, but each to his own.

I agree. But with all that goes on in life I find it hard to get enough time to enter a contest. Especially when I try to build something really good.

I have an idea though - build and skin contests - where the theme is the same, and we'd have to make builds and/or skins that go well with the builds

dreamCritting-
Age of dragons sounds like it would just be 90% nicely shaded dragons and maby 10% creative original ideas, which is ok I mean nicely shaded dragons are cool but I think lab experements or what lurks beneath would leave far more room for creativity and cool original ideas rather than just everyone trying to make a dragon.
