Well, it's been a few years, let's see if I remember how to kick one of these things off. The theme for the first competition of 2017 is...
Alright soldiers, listen up! Welcome to Watchpoint MFGG. We're short on troops in this area, so it's your job to draw us up some new recruits!
The goal of this competition is going to be similar to the last. Take any Nintendo character you like, and redesign them to fit in with the Overwatch universe. Thematically, Overwatch is primarily science-fiction, but there can also be elements of fantasy or steam-punk eras as well, such as with characters like McCree, Hanzo, Reinhardt, Torbjorn, Junkrat, and Roadhog. Your entry could be as simple as a concept sheet, to being as elaborate as an entire dynamic scene.
Now, the rules.
You will have three weeks to come up with your entry. Take your time, you'll have until January 22nd.
-Due to a lack of entries, there will be a week long extension, making the new voting date January 29th
-You may not use any artwork that has been made prior to the competition
-As stated above, your entry may be as simple as a design sheet, or as complex as an entire scene.
-You may include existing Overwatch characters, but your design must
be the focus of the image.
-Top 5 voting begins January 23rd
. Final voting will either begin the same day if there are five or fewer entries, or after three days on January 26th
, and will last for 24 hours, just like the old days.
Good luck, have fun, and remember--the world could always use more heroes!
