Well, I've been laying low for a while with the whole flying around the world twice and having a baby thing, but things are settling down and in about a week or so I'll be back to Tokyo and sitting around for 12 hours every night doing nothing but wasting tax payers money. This coensides with the tournament winding down and your two champions battling it out on the psychic battlefield.
The tournament sub-forum has fallen quiet of late, mainly since there's only a few open threads and there's only two people left. This means people have been sitting on the sidelines licking their wounds and planning their revenge. So I pose the question to all...PAACBT: The Second Coming. Who's down?
If we can garner the interest and withholding mod and admin approval, I am down for running the whole shin-dig again. This was my first time at the helm and I learned quite a bit. I've also been plotting and scheming for Team Celestial's return, and have come up with a few new ways to torture the contestants as well.
I can't say how long it will last, because that is based on how many folks enter. The current contest has been running for about seven months or so now, but we had several reboots due to server issues along the way. I realize school is coming around for a good bunch of you, and I can tell you it will probably run until sometime next year, with a break for the holidays.
Things have been slow on the AC side too, so now may not be the time. But, I figured at put the invitation out and see what happens. If this is on page two in a week, I'll get the point. The question of art skill:
This is a comic
battle on a art
forum, so some degree of artistic merit is highly suggested before you even think of signing up. Take a look at the current tournament and look at your art from an objective point of view. Is it worse then all the entries? Fall somewhere in the middle? Quality writing and humor are a must as well. In some, very rare, cases, the writing can carry you if the art isn't that stellar, but to be signed up you'll have to submit some sort of art, not writing. Just something to keep in mind.
Post here if you are genuinely interested or if you have any questions for me.
Alrighty, I'm still waiting on the official word from admin to have the Tournament Forum open another year so we can throw down again, but that won't stop us from doing character submissions.
As of now, there is no deadline
. But that will change as the start date looms closer.
Just submitting a character does not reserve you a spot in the tournament. You still have to have some semblance of
of artistic merit with your drawing. With that said, don't let this frighten you away from submitting a character, I was pretty easy-going last year with entries and that will continue. Hell, I let myself in, that's pretty bad.CHARACTER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Characters must be submitted before (insert a date here).
All characters must be sensible. Busting out Gojira or Unicron may be a hands-down way to â€œbeatâ€ your opponent, but it just ainâ€™t creative. Most of the greatest fights to go down in AC history were between mere mortals with some slight â€œabilitiesâ€ whether they be 733T ninja skillz or having a genie rammed up their arse. Along with that, try to keep your character within, oh letâ€™s say, 15 ft and half a ton dry weight.
All submissions must include the followingâ€¦
-a 360width x 750height character shot.
-a 200 x 200 â€œmug shotâ€
-a small synopsis of your characters abilities. If you want to do a whole bloody story, more power to you, but we just want to know what we can expect to see from your character.
-a proper way to host your images whether it be ImageShack, Photobucket, or whatever you kids are using now-a-days
-a gorram guarantee that you intend to, to the best of your ability, see this ship through to the end
The first box means you're in.
The second box means you've submitted a character.
If there is a "PM ME" after your name that means I don't know who you are or haven't seen your work. Please PM me with a link to some of your art whether it be on this forum, a photobucket account, DA account, or however else you can show me your sthuff.
