Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Welcome to the thirdGraphic Violence Presents: Create a Super Hero/Villain contest!
The Theme for the third contest is: INSPIRED BY MYTHS AND LEGENDS!. Myths and legends is a very broad category spanning pretty much all of human civilization. So you've got options! You can make heroes or villains.
Here are THE RULES:
Follow basic rules of the forums. That means no porn, no use of things like the N-bomb, etc. Check the rules thread for basic ideas.
All entries must be able to fit in the character limit of a single post. That's more than enough space.
Link to images over 200k. Make thumbnails if you have to.
You can make two entries. If you do, one must be a hero, and one must be a villain. We'll have separate polls for each.
And here are some GUIDELINES:
Your entry should contain the following:
The name of your hero or villain.
A drawing and/or description of the appearance of your hero or villain.
An origin story and/or biography of your character.
Powers and abilities, etc.
You aren't required to include all of these categories, and you may add more, but these should work as basic guidelines.
The deadline for entries is tentatively scheduled for Monday, September 21st before 11:59 PM Central time.
BONUS FOR THOSE WHO SUCK AT ART
Here's a link to HeroMachine, where you can do simplified hero designs. It ain't perfect, but it'll do!
