View Full Version : OC Challenge Arena.

01-14-2011, 02:40 PM
Ok so as I was saying in the old MT, I want to revive the OC Challenges, for that I need people interested.

As little people got interested in the idea of the challenge I took the bold desition of making no mater what this thread and to propose a first Challenge.

Old Challenge's:

The Challenge is to create a OC wester/cowboy.

The Rules:
-The draw can be in free style but staying as a OC (this mean, anime, western, lolita, etc)
-It has to be a wester character (no knights or wizards plz).
-Bio needed (synthetic and complete).
-No need of a horse (if you like you can put your cowboy with a horse, but is not necesarelly).
-The Bio need to be in the OC draw.
-The Draw can't stretch pages (but it can be longer so people can have more space for the bio).

Voting: Public.

New Challenge's:

OC Challenge: Twisted Magical Creatures.

The challenge is to create a magical creature/drawing a known creature but with a twist. The twist can be anything that makes a substantial change in the creature, without losing the concept of the creature. With this said, people need to draw the creature in a new, different way but must be recognizable.

-The changes over the creature shouldn't be minimals. Example: Don't make a Phoenix with two heads or without legs.
-You can gave human features or make the creature more human.
-You can mix it with: scifi, horror, cartoon, oniric, etc.
-You shouldn't change a concept of the creature. Example: Don't make a Fire Angel, and claim that the change you did is that is that come from Fire or you changed everything features that define a Angel.
-You can make different versions of the features of the creature. Example: Angel Wings = White Fabrics that look like floating.

The OC has to have a Bio that explain the creature, where or how did it born, it's power or how does work in humans lifes (example: angels protect people. Or Phoenix's reborn), and it's folkloric story. All this shall be synthetic.

The OC's shall be sended before Wednesday 9 at the 00:00.

System of Votation:


01-14-2011, 03:21 PM
I might be interested. When is the completion date?

01-14-2011, 05:51 PM
Tomorrow in the afternoon I'm going to see the thread and the amount of people who want to participate. Then I'm going to propose (declare) the date.

01-14-2011, 06:04 PM
I think I'll participate.

01-14-2011, 09:34 PM
me too probably. just give the details.

01-15-2011, 12:15 AM
I do it

01-15-2011, 01:28 AM
Ok I think with this many people is enought (I was happy with just 2).

The Date to uploade the works is the January 30 of 2011. You have to send your stuffs to me until the 00:00 of that day (this mean at the 31 I don't get anything).

If anyone else want to participate are free to do. But remember the simple rules I put and the date.

Also people who want to make their own challenges are free to do. This thread is for that, to people challenge each other in meanless public votations.

01-16-2011, 08:33 PM
I'm going to fix some rules to let it more clear for everyone.

Also I already finish mine :cool:

01-17-2011, 01:49 PM
Western is kind of too broad for a character...

01-17-2011, 02:12 PM
I wrote "Wester/Cowboy", this is because I mean about every kind of character from the wild west.

01-17-2011, 02:25 PM
Herp a Derp. My bad, I apologize.

01-17-2011, 11:17 PM
I'm want to participate too ^_^ 30th January... there's still enough time.

Just to clarify, I can make loli moe cowboy with anime style, right?

01-17-2011, 11:36 PM

This is to encourage everyone to feel free to be bold and take any style they want.

Also to let clear the BIO (because I just wrote: synthetic and complet).

The Bio need to answer these questions: Who he is? Who he was? Who he is now? How did become like that? What is his goal?

This questions solve: personality, story, motivation, goals. And also is supposed to be synthetic.

01-19-2011, 05:34 PM
I'd like to join this one as well. Would that be all right?

Oh, and what exactly is a synthetic bio? I know what I bio is, but I'm not sure about a synthetic bio. Tried Googling with no success.

01-19-2011, 09:36 PM
Question... is it have to be the real wild west, or it could be alternate or fantasy wild west (Wild Arms' Filgaia would be a perfect example).

01-20-2011, 02:13 AM
Matt@ Yes you can (please read the other posts, everyone is allowed to participate). Synthetic means shorts but complet in a general way (summary), this mean, is being the most clear but short at the same time to make a proposal.

LVUER@ Yes you can but as I said: no knight, ninjas and that kinda of stuffs.

01-20-2011, 11:43 PM
this OC contest counds fun! too bad I'm too late to join... am I?

01-21-2011, 10:34 AM
You are not late, no one is late. The only way to be late is sending me the OC out of time (after the 30 of january).

01-24-2011, 05:10 AM
I didn't see if you mentioned whether or not there's going to be a different contest each month or not. I won't be able to do it this time, since I've been training 4 days a week and have commissions to do first. :/ Sorry if you said it, I looked, but I may have missed it.

01-24-2011, 10:53 PM
The thread was made to people, so they can make their own challenges between thems. So yeah, there are high chances that in the future there are going to be more contests (if I'm not lazy or if people want to made contest's by themselfs).

01-24-2011, 11:52 PM
I'm interested. If I managed to finish something, how do I 'send' it to you? I'm rather new to this forum format, so pls forgive my noobie questions.

01-25-2011, 02:16 PM
Good question. I don't know how the pms works here =/.

01-26-2011, 11:11 AM
How about we just pm you the IMG links and you can post them up for voting?

01-27-2011, 03:26 PM
Rio: Go to Dashboard > My Messages. Click on Compose and everything else is pretty much self-explanatory from there.

Yeah I don't know how to quote.

The options are these:
1.- you can send my the link or image (pm)
2.- you can post it in the gallery of the website (you need to tell me by pm or in this thread).

01-27-2011, 03:35 PM
To quote, just hit the button that says "Reply with Quote" at the bottom of the person's post that you want to quote. If you want to quote multiple people, hit the "+ button on all the posts you want to quote and then hit Reply to Thread.

01-29-2011, 03:07 AM
Ok, cool, thanks.

Also kids, I want to remaind everyone that there is little time to reach the limite date. So, people who have already done his OC be pleased to send it to me. And the people who haven't finished, you still have time to do it and to send.

If someone want to ask something, now is the time.

01-29-2011, 06:46 AM
I'm in, let's see what I can come up with in 2 days :)

01-29-2011, 10:36 AM
...IM IN!!!! I'll see what I can do with 24 hours D:!!!!

01-29-2011, 11:19 AM
I did mine in a day, so I trust that you guys can do it in a day (specially because in here most people is way better than me in photoshop, the part that takes most time).

01-29-2011, 01:49 PM
I did mine in a day, so I trust that you guys can do it in a day (specially because in here most people is way better than me in photoshop, the part that takes most time).

I am probably not one of those people.
I still think I'll finish my OC in time though.

01-29-2011, 01:54 PM
ClockHand: I've sent my entry. Please check your messages and let me know if there is any problem with the link or IMG code that I send you.

I not satisfied with the entry and think I can do better if given more time but with CNY and a ka billion of million things to do before that, I really can just afford to spend a couple of hours on a piece per day. Even now I'm typing this at 3 in the morning!

01-29-2011, 01:58 PM
I check'd my messages and there is ntohing =/.

01-29-2011, 02:04 PM
I check'd my messages and there is ntohing =/.

I got this message when I tried to send it to you. "Unable to send a private message to "ClockHand" as they have disabled this option for the moment."

Check your settings.

01-29-2011, 04:55 PM
Ok I finally think I fix this.

Try now.

01-29-2011, 05:55 PM
Ok I finally think I fix this.

Try now.

Alright, done. It said 'sent'. Please check your inbox. ^_^

01-29-2011, 06:04 PM
Yeah it's done. You can live in peace now and tell to your grandchilds this epic story.

01-29-2011, 07:05 PM
I suddenly got busy this week, I completely forgot about it. I don't think I'm going to finish it on time...

01-29-2011, 07:25 PM
You can, there is a lot of time.

There are 27 hours left.

01-30-2011, 02:53 PM
I fear I might not be able to finish my Oc in time, as I have a written task to write for school tomorrow which might take some time. If I finish that in time, I might be able to finish my OC in time for the deadline.

E: Actually, I might just make it. I only have to finish my rationale.

01-30-2011, 03:26 PM
I don't think I can make it in time, can I like, submit it a few hours late? Please....?

01-30-2011, 03:47 PM
Ok, I'm giving a few hours more, having 12 hours (I'm going to be a little flexible about this and after this time you are going to still have a few hours more that are going to end when I create the thread for the poll).

01-30-2011, 03:52 PM
Oh thank you thank you thank you thank you!!! I'll send it in soon!

01-30-2011, 06:14 PM
I won't be able to make it after all, even though all my school related work is finished, I don't want to start the week off being absolutely knackered, sorry.

01-30-2011, 07:19 PM
o I didnt see that the bio is supposed to be part of the drawing

01-30-2011, 07:44 PM
There are time.

01-30-2011, 11:20 PM
GAK! I totally forgot about the bio. (it was 3am by the time I finish the pic after all.) I'm gonna do it now and submit to you soon by pvt msg.

01-30-2011, 11:47 PM
Guys, you can feel relaxed, there is still time. (4 hours aprox.)

01-31-2011, 12:01 PM
Poll opened: http://www.mangatutorials.com/forum/showthread.php?316-OC-Challenge-Western-OC.

01-31-2011, 12:05 PM
i wasn't able to make it after all. OTL

01-31-2011, 01:40 PM
Yeah I notice that.

I think I might do a next one but this time I need that the people who is going to participate become more responsible.

02-01-2011, 02:18 PM
any idea of what the next one would be?

02-01-2011, 02:42 PM
I have some ideas, but I don't know if I should make it more challengy or simple (with the big amount of people who didn't made their OC's is hard to make expected of how many are going to be willing for a more challenging competition).

02-02-2011, 04:28 PM
New Challenge (read first post).

02-02-2011, 05:17 PM
So, if I had a bear as my base, could I make a bear chicken hybrid?

02-02-2011, 05:25 PM
Are bears magical creatures?

02-02-2011, 05:59 PM
You said to create one with a twist. If I make a bear chicken hybrid, it's a magical creature.

02-02-2011, 06:15 PM
No, is just a mutant or a hybrid.

Magical creature is a creature with a magical attachment (example: elfs). If you chose to create one, take that in consideration.

Also a Magical Creature is considered as a folkloric individual, so it also has a story.

02-02-2011, 07:50 PM
Uuuugh. The new challenge is very hard. I still can't imagine what to draw...

02-03-2011, 11:27 AM
Well, the idea is to be a "challenge" and to make people work in the deconstruction of an idea to build it back in a different way.

02-03-2011, 09:40 PM
Ok, so people is having problems about what is a magical creature (to make one).

To make it simple a magical creature is any kind of creature with animal or human features that is attached to a mystic, legendary, folckloric, faeric or esoteric background.

02-13-2011, 03:52 PM
Maybe there should be a new contest due to lack of interest?

02-13-2011, 06:13 PM
as I'm supporting this other contest: http://www.mangatutorials.com/forum/showthread.php?416-Art-Wars (War Art) and by the lack of participation by the MT users. I'm not going to make any challenge at the moment. If you want, you can participate in to the War Art.
