05-18-2012, 07:53 PM
GOOD! Another chance!!!
Weren't we limited to 2 OC's in every contest?
Is it? I thought no one can complete 3 OC that's why no ever did it before.
05-18-2012, 08:47 PM
Actually the limit is 3 oc's :D.
@ ram: When you say "I'll make 2 or 3 girls in 1 picture scene or something". Do you mean that all the girls in that scene will be competing or are you just gonna have 1 focus and then leave the rest as BG's?
05-18-2012, 08:57 PM
Maybe just one character I guess.. and leave everything to the background..
Edit: Can't I make 2 characters competing? like goku and vegeta fusion? thought not really fusion.
like one team or something.
05-18-2012, 11:25 PM
Nope. Each of you're girls must have their own piece. That way it won't complicate things.

05-21-2012, 10:58 AM
Are you going to put a sphinx in a swimsuit.
05-21-2012, 11:04 AM
Yeah...but she's hot so...
05-21-2012, 11:05 AM
Is it a furry
05-21-2012, 11:17 AM
No (eww!) She's more of a cat girl. Think Thundercats but with wings. I'm not sure if I wanna do this OC in a swimsuit or another one though.
05-21-2012, 11:18 AM
Me me! I'm in!
OC: At most 2. One will be moe and the other will be boobilicious. ...Unless I can somehow combine the two. ;p

We're really really really going to lose, guys
05-23-2012, 09:35 AM
I'm only doing this for more EXP. I mean...I hope to win but don't expect to. I don't do much girlie (moe, saimoe, shoho) stuff so this is to challenge myself.
BUt Rio's gonna crush us all anyway so...
05-24-2012, 11:58 AM
Oh my the crowd is building up! keep it coming folks XD. I'm half way doing Nyu's swim suit ;P. Ever wonder what the hostess will be wearing for this years swim suit? xD
05-24-2012, 12:40 PM
Questions. Where do we post these when we're done? What's the deadline too? I'm almost done w/ my entry.
Questions. Where do we post these when we're done? What's the deadline too? This. Though I think we send submissions to Mikuru. Long weekend this week so I'm going to do mine before I procrastinate and never submit anything. ;P
05-25-2012, 11:40 AM
Well I'm done with my entry. I don't do saimoe...in fact according to the distinctive traits of the style...my OC may be a little too old.
Okay I was done...but there's more time now make this better now!
05-25-2012, 03:38 PM
Swimsuit = sexy
05-26-2012, 03:19 PM
This should be fun practice!
05-27-2012, 01:26 PM
OC: may be 1 only
05-27-2012, 08:22 PM
05-30-2012, 01:31 PM
Can anyone explain to me the meaning of OC in the saimoe tournemant registration form? I understand OC stands for original character, but is writing 2 meaning I'm gonna submit 2 different characters or just have 2 characters in the same pic?
Two different characters. Two different pictures.
05-30-2012, 02:42 PM
Ok then :כ
DA: http://shnorkel.deviantart.com (I'm inactive there though)
05-31-2012, 10:22 PM
Challenge accepted. *^*
DA: My tumblr (http://aggressivejelly.tumblr.com/) is better.
OC: Probably just the one.
06-01-2012, 02:53 PM
Man...saimoe's a harder style to do than shonen...so many line for the eyes! (sigh!) Its all right Shagg! You can do it!
06-04-2012, 01:32 AM
You can check out the official thread. Its in the contest area. All you need to know about moe is there :>.
06-04-2012, 09:38 AM
Its still kinda tough drawing super cutesie girls when the only women you draw are are usually as hard boiled as your guys though. My problem is trying to capture the age in both the body & the face...the OC that I'm drawing is actually like 18-21. Having problems making her 14-16...but requirements are requirements. Wouldn't be a tourney without rules.
06-04-2012, 11:21 AM
Well, honestly man, I find it helps to include as little detail as possible in the face, and choose what you do put down very carefully instead. Super-moe style is just plain different from depicting things 'properly'. I draw mostly robots, monsters and cyborgs myself. :p
Anyhow. My name isn't in the registration list yet, so I'm not actually sure if my entry was excepted or not...
I started drawing by referencing a moe-style artist on this very site about four years ago; even though I've started drawing in a more semirealistic style than I used to, it's not too difficult to switch to a style I know how to do already. I suppose you'll be good at what you start with; moe is probably a good exercise for anyone who doesn't draw moe, just as semirealism and total realism are (definitely) good for a moe-style artist.
06-04-2012, 04:33 PM
@ Regenator:"Less is more" I get that. Trying to simplify my normal stuff.
@ Matt: I've referenced stuff here, stuff on deviant...some sight dedicated exclusively to moe...Sailor Moon (ugh!) & even Lum. It's all very simple. That's true. But therein lies the difficulty:making alluring art with this simplified style. Can I do Saimoe? Sure its not that tough. Can I make a Saimoe swimsuit pin up girl without making her told old looking? I dunno...but I'm trying.
06-04-2012, 04:45 PM
ok I think I want to join this! It'll be my first entry on a tournament like this so doubt I even get pass the qualification xD But hell, I give it a try :P
Name: eltoroguaco (My nickname is Guaco so you can write that if you'd like)
Number of Oc's: 2 (I'll try 2, but I might only get time for 1 since it's only a week and a half left of this contest.)
@Black Shaggie - The hardest part for me is balancing the cute factor with sex appeal. Though it's not conventionally moe, Ty Lee from Avatar is a good example of this balance that's giving me so much trouble. If you're having trouble balancing age and visual appeal, how about looking at some (http://static.minitokyo.net/downloads/44/07/207894.jpg) art (http://i.neoseeker.com/mgv/264018-SandStone/18/51/20100118235770_tony_taka_display.jpg) by (http://www.moggling.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/mizushima_asa-seifuku-sora_no_iro_mizu_no_iro-sorayama_natsume-thighhighs-tony_taka.jpg) Tony (http://www.moggling.com/wp-content/gallery/tony-taka/t2-girl%20on%20beach.jpg) Taka (http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/338/b/c/tony_taka_render_by_lllumination-d346r8j.png)? He does a great job of making late-teen characters look nice. He's got some lolis too, so if you wanna drop the age even more, there's those. Just be aware that you shouldn't search him at work or school. What I linked to is some of his more innocent stuff, though some of them are still ecchi.
While the essence of moe is simplicity and innocence (to me), I've seen some adorable characters in more complex styles. Baccano's Sylvie (http://s3.sidereel.com/episodes/225959/featured/377537.jpg) (only found one picture of young Sylvie; no hotlinking allowed), for example. In that same series, I've even found some late teen/early twenties characters to be quite cute. Like Ennis (http://pics.livejournal.com/nin_tendo/pic/00008z7z) and Miria (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_1sHleFmwN54/TRSuWgGYxPI/AAAAAAAABWo/0nBrc7y6iCM/s1600/Baccano_Isaac_Miria.jpg).
06-04-2012, 09:49 PM
List updated. Yes Reg you are in no worries xD.
06-05-2012, 10:09 PM
MiKuRu: I think your message board is full XD that may be a problem when submitting :P Just wanted you to know in case you did not get a message yourself XD I noticed when trying to send you a pm.
Wow! there's a lot of contestants this season.
06-06-2012, 03:20 AM
Okay guys! Cleaned out my inbox. Now start sending em in xD.
So far a few of you already sent in your characters:D:
-JJorgie 1[left expression chart and bio]
Did I miss anyone else? Anyway I'll be waiting for the rest of you guys to kick in your stuff xD. 1 week to go!
06-06-2012, 10:13 AM
Mikuru is it possible that I'll submit another entry even though I registered with only 1 OC?
06-06-2012, 10:47 AM
I have the opposite problem of Shnorkel. I registered 3, but i'll only be sending 2. The last one keeps coming out wrong :/
06-06-2012, 11:12 AM
Hahaha then I'll draw one for you :)
06-06-2012, 12:08 PM
for Sutari's problem, I think that's just fine :P I got the same cause I registered 2, but might only get time for 1. Doubt he'll charge us for that.
06-06-2012, 03:45 PM
I just finished the expression profiles (did the bio like when I was 12 HA!!) & the line art is done. Gonna spend a few days on color & BG art though. Once I thought about it...it wasn't that difficult to do.
06-06-2012, 04:06 PM
@Shnorkel: Yeah sure you can. Actually who ever wants to add in more OC's can do so. Just be sure to inform me :D.
06-06-2012, 04:15 PM
I still got a lot left on this one... Only sketched the girl and still have to mod it a little before I can go on background, outline, colour, shading, info and sheet. Man... this takes a long time xD
06-11-2012, 05:51 PM
So I'm done with everything but the BG. It's June 11th, 3:50pm Nashville time. I'm going to finish up everything when I get home & PM MiKuRu tonight. Probally around midinte or later...
06-11-2012, 06:30 PM
I only got the emotion chart left :P so soon done with mine. but there's no way I can get time for 2 now xD
06-12-2012, 02:08 AM
I just finished & PMed MiKiRu. Now to play the waiting game...
06-14-2012, 03:20 PM
Now I've finished mine and PMed MiKiRu! =D Hope he see and include it in time since it's that late sent XP
06-15-2012, 09:45 PM
