View Full Version : Manga Tutorials 2011 Skinning Contest 1

01-24-2011, 01:22 PM
Get your pencils ready for the very first Manga Tutorials Skinning Contest! This is your chance to have your drawing become a background choice for the site. That's right - your drawing as the site's background!

Instead of that Death Note background, imagine your drawing at the site's background above!

Now, astute readers may notice that there is a 1 at the title above and that means we'll be holding this contest every several months so that all members have a better chance of getting their drawing up as a background here at the site. With that said, let's get to the nitty-gritty and lay out the rules:

1) Entries must be sent to Rio at rio[at]mangatutorials[dot]com, posted here in this thread, or if you posted it in the Gallery just let me know either in a PM, in his thread, or via email.

2) Images must be at least 1440x900 pixels or higher.

3) Entries must be drawn by you. I do not accept images that have been modded, filtered, merged, etc if the drawing was not yours.

4) Please keep the images clean of any hentai, violent images, hatred, and so on. If you are unsure about something, drop by the forum and ask.

5) One entry per person. Send us your best work!

6) The following formats are accepted: jpg, bmp, png, tif, and gif.

7) Deadline: March 19, 2011, 11:59 pm EST.

The Voting Process
Among all the entries, I will pick the top 10. The 10 best entries will then be opened up for voting among members in the forum for about a week. Voting will end near the end of March and winners will be announced thereafter. If there are not enough entries, I will decide who wins.

The Prize
The top 3 winners will have their drawings available as backgrounds for this site for one month each beginning in April and ending in June. Winners will also have bragging rights.

Good luck to all participants!

I have some questions:
1. You say higher, but should I keep the ratio (1440x900)? Or I can change it (like 2880x1600)?
2. Can I use draw that I already made in the past or it must be a brand new pics?
3. Is there any theme? And must the picture original (original character and such)?

1. It doesn't matter. Keep the ratio if you want to but it's not mandatory. On a side note, most of the current backgrounds right now are 1920x1080 or 1920x1200.
2. You can use what you drew before just as long as you drew it.
3. No theme. Draw whatever you want. As for original character - you can draw whoever you want; original or fan.

The first Skinning Contest has ended! Since there was very few entries, there will no public voting. The backgrounds will begin their features at the site starting next month.

I will be announcing the next Skinning Contest sometime next month. I hope more people will participate in the next one. : )

Maybe we should make a general discussion/chatterbox thread just because some people might not've seen this one?

Hrmmmm.... but that kind of defeats the purpose of the Contest Section. I'll think about it a bit.
