Details of the Tournament

The theme of the Tournament is Spring; interpretation will be the artist's discretion.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/spring Use any definition freely.

- Any regular user or power user may join.

- Use of reference material should be acknowledged. Please be reminded, however, that originality and creativity will likely get more points than faithfulness to a copied material. Be sure to use your own interpretation of the piece if you plan to base it on a reference.

-An artist may join different classes but submit a piece once for every class. For example, if you submit an entry under pen/solo, you may not submit under the class pen/solo again but you can join pen/collab or any other class of your choice.

- Pen Tool/Solo, Pen Tool/Tandem, and Pen Tool/Collab have to be made in simple boards (one layer, no circles, no blurs). Make sure you follow this instruction, since the server will automatically move the published entry to the proper drawing class. If you're not sure about what a simple board type is, please ask around.


We will have a total of 12 possible winners: 6 People's Choice Awards and up to 6 Judges' Choice Awards.

PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD: Regular users will nominate the best drawing under each of the 6 drawing classes:
1. pentool/solo
2. pentool/tandem
3. pentool/collab
4. advancedtools/solo
5. advancedtools/tandem
6. advancedtools/collab)
The drawing which gets the most number of votes will win the People's Choice Award. There will be 6 winners; one for every drawing class.

JUDGES' CHOICE AWARD: The 6 judges are composed of regular users, power users and an admin. They will pick the best drawing in each of the categories :
1. manga
2. people
3. animals and nature
4. sci-fi
5. fantasy
6. abstract
from among the submitted tournament entries. There will also be 6 winners; one for every drawing category.

We will accept drawings until (but not including) 27th at 0:00 US pacific time.
The system will automatically hide the names of the participants to allow for anonymity and unbiased judging. The t08 code is for the system to identify your drawing as an entry for the tournament, perform the function of hiding your names and assign them to the proper drawing class.
Do not reveal which entry is yours to other people.

Oh cool!
A tournament! I really must enter.
Are you allowed to mix stuff? For example, mix fantasy and animals? D;
Commented by shoe: of course, you're allowed to do that. the judges will take care of the labeling as to whether it is going to be best in fantasy or best in animal and nature.
Great! :D

The theme is spring? The season? Won't that mostly fall under animals and nature? Man this'll be tough for me.. lol
Commented by shoe: Spring can mean the season. Other possible meanings: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/spring . Use any definition freely. For example, you can draw spring onions sleeping together on a mattress with springs during spring season in fantasy land! Up to you guys.

Awesome idea shoe! So you really have to draw something that has to do with spring and not just a person, or maybe a person with flowers in the hair or something.. does that count :D?

I don't get that about the tally board (top5). Why we need it, why we use it, and what is on it to see or do?

For the theme, yo, that's really hard. ~Interpretation will be the artist's discretion. So be creative.
If I'd get a cool idea, I'd would participate too. ;)

Mon, Apr 7 2008, 03:32 pm
so can we just do a bust of a naruto pic or something to get into the manga-anime...or is it only spring pictures?
Commented by Kamano: important: SPRING is the big umbrella term. Your pic can be an interpretation, but has to be themed this way or is not going to qualify.

When you say Do not show your entries to other people, when you publish your picture for the competition does it not show up in the gallery for everyone to see? Also this is such a cool idea, thanks for organising it :D

So, all I gotta do is a bunch of pics themed around "spring", and any definiton of the word spring will pass? All righty then. Time to plan out my stuff. This should be fun.

Also, I can't believe someone wants to spam the tourney with Naruto junk. Shame on you, Kiortio!

As for the description are you allowed to put only "t08" or may you write more things such as a description of the picture or what type of spring you were drawing etc.?
Commented by tyb: You may include your own description. I've added an example above.

To involve the public more in the process of judging, we have modified the judging system. Regular users now have the choice to pick their winner instead of being partly involved in the decision-making. Please refer back to the details of the tournament to get acquainted with the changes. Should there be any questions regarding any part of the tournament details, please do not hesitate to ask. :)

Also to facilitate better organization of the event, we strongly encourage you to participate in our survey

Which drawing classes are you most likely to join?

SPRING. etceteras.

the possibilities are almost endless. i searched in a site and it gave 3,126,372 items. :P
the idea of spring can cover: 1. season 2. twisted metal/coil 3. groundwater/fountain 4. leap/jump/bounce 5. origin/source. etcetera.
for example you can draw motorbikes parked outside a shop or mountain bikes they all have suspension springs, just maybe show details of the bike parts or any machine that has coils, etc. you can draw any event happening in spring, like a concert or a fashion show or camping outdoors during springbreak, etc. you can draw anybody leaping, a monster, a spring fairy, a basketball player, a criminal, a rabbit, a flea etc. something that "sprang" in the 60s 70s, etc.
be creative in incorporating the theme and making it stand out a bit in the picture.
re: graffiti (no section)
this shouldnt be a problem there are ways to pull it off. for example a wall to do a spring tag on and draw some kids spraying on it or the tag can say anything just throw in a bunch of kids eating chinese spring rolls, etc. this would go under the category people (which covers not only portraits of people but any activity or scene that has people in it lol )
sorry if i preempted ideas of some people by accident. i didnt want to explain the theme because i wanted people to come up with interesting ideas but some have been asking about it so i posted for fairness' sake instead of answering one by one. try to play with the theme and have fun!

What will happen to the drawings after the contest is over? Will they show who drew them and will they be assimilated into the gallery or have their own special tourny gallery? also will they be able to have a 2-6 rating ratio?
Commented by tyb: We will show participation and we will activate 2-6 rating after the tournament (after judging). Whether they will go into a separate category is not yet decided.

yeah smart effect after voting... what hard decisions though, took me ages.. a great contest, great entries a credit to the site. I'd like to see all participants after the awards and how many votes each got etc.. winners in each catagory should have a special gallery and all entries should be visible in the normal galleries.. in my opinion. Well done organizers and artists. :DI

I thought the tournament was very well done, but maybe next time have it at a time when people aren't revising for exams? lol I know that's not anyone's fault, but you might get more entries. Is the tournament going to be an annual thing then?

I agree with MuffinTree. I'm currently doing my Fine Art and Graphics exam, with my English coming around May/June.

Kinda too bad that entries didn't remain anonymous. Several of the comments have given them away. Next tourney perhaps it would make it more fair if there were no comments, because it brings it back to the popularity contest, much like the gallery rating system.
