That's right ladies and gentlemen :la: Game Development Art and Manga/Anime categories on Deviant Art are joining forces for a Feb to March long Contest! Hosted by :iconpolymune: :iconrydi1689: and :iconnyiana-sama: :love:

It is so appropriately labelled The G.A.M.E (The Gaming Anime Manga Experience) :eager: :eager:

The G.A.M.E Contest Information



Do you have what it takes to finally tell your friends you won "The Game?" :B

Your challenge if you choose to accept it, is to create a Game Screenshot experience! Can be traditional, digital, 3D: as long as it's Original!

that's right! Only original characters, and original settings of your own creation may be entered.

Game Development Art Category, and the Manga and Anime category on Deviant Art are not Fan-art Categories. They are not for your pictures of Zelda, or your pictures of Naruto: they are for your own original characters, your own original settings and any games/manga you collaborated on where you own the rights too. For example: You made lara croft 3D model for the new Tomb Raider game at Square Enix and they've allowed you to post your model up in your portfolio, yes you can post this into Game Development. You created a 3D model for lara croft because you love her, no this goes into Fan-art.

Anime and Manga is the same: they are for your original characters, and original mangas, not your Naruto oc's (Fan-art gets those lovely creations :la: ).

With this contest we are helping to promote that GDA and A/M are original art only categories, and the main rule of this concert is  No Fan-art

The G.A.M.E theme



What does science fiction mean to you? What does fantasy mean to you? Take one of these two, or both genres of art and create for us a Game Screenshot. A Cut Scene, if you will. Show us that sad death scene, show us that epic boss fight scene that comes before actually fighting it, show us that epic ending scene...anything your heart desires as long as it remotely looks like a game screenshot.

There's a catch: The only main restriction besides original art only, is it needs to be done in the Anime/Manga style. Remember though! Anime/Manga features all sorts of different styles and techniques..there is realism anime, semi realism, cell shaded, detailed, you name it! If you are unsure if your style matches anime or not, ask us or browse the anime manga gallery folder for ideas :love:

For example: (These are only examples, do not copy these, use as a reference) - The god of through time by wands96 Fiend + Boy by softmode Lostlegends Warmonger by the-John-Doe Don't Forget Me by yuumei Pewdiecry series: Ep 3 Screenshot by keary Parashi - Ginsenkei Video by nuriko-kun Romantic scene XP by lince Romantic mood by KaranaK I'M GONNA DIE! by meago

The G.A.M.E. genre



Try to give us some details in your artists comments if you can :la: What kind of game is it? An RPG, shooter, racing game etc? Who are these characters we are viewing? etc. No need to give us any plot spoilers if you don't want too ;) But a little bit of background information would be great! :la:

The G.A.M.E RULES



:bulletblue: Must be original work only No fan-art, fan characters set in copyrighted universes, only work you own the rights to. ie: your original characters, your original world, etc. If it's on earth, medieval, space, etc is fine as long as it's a work of fiction. (no using certain existing people, for example.).

:bulletred: Must simulate a game screenshot or a game cut scene of some kind. It doesn't have to "copy" how some games do it, but if you look up game screenshots/cut scenes you can see what I mean. (they have backgrounds, etc. sometimes even gameplay elements like attack, and stuff). Don't submit a full body character on a white background ...this is not a game screenshot or a cut scene.. Unless it's something like  

Keeping in mind that it'd have to be your characters not Square Enix's Cloud and Aeris, but just an idea where a white background might work for a game cut scene!

An example of a game screenshot:  
An example of a game cut scene:

:bulletgreen: Must use either science fiction or fantasy or both elements in some way.

:bulletpink: Must be in the Anime/Manga style. There are different variations of this style and a lot to choose from, the best definition I could find was "The stereotype of the anime style are characters with proportionally large eyes and hair styles and colors that are very colorful and exotic. The plots range from very immature (kiddy stuff), through teenage level, to mature (violence, content, thick plot)."

:bulletblack: Contest starts today Feb 14th, and goes until March 21st EST time at 11:59 pm. All entries must be submitted to the correct category by then!

:bulletorange: You must submit the art piece to the contest folder labelled "thegame" in order to qualify! Artwork cannot be submitted to the GDA category, or M/A category or any other category. To submit too it directly, you can follow this link:  www.deviantart.com/submit/?cat… or browse other contest entries here! browse.deviantart.com/contests…

The category is under Contests->2013-The G.A.M.E if you prefer to search for it yourself, or are having trouble submitting too it.

:bulletred: Artwork only created for this contest will quality! You may use existing characters, stories, games, etc you have created prior to the contest but MUST create a new art piece for this contest and follow the other rules.

:bulletblue: Have fun, be creative, and if you have any questions at all feel free to ask in the comments below or by note to either :iconpolymune: :iconrydi1689: or :iconnyiana-sama: the hosts of the contest! If you do not get a response from one after a few days, try noting another, :)

I don't see yours on DA at all, so unfortunately we can't accept it as it's way over due now. If it was uploaded when you sent this message we possibly could've included it for you but as there's no link provided or not entry in your folder that i can see (even submitted to a different category) i am sorry but it's closed. Thanks for showing an interest! :)
