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...

Image

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!

I think that's the first time ever someone made a custom logo for a competition. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The theme sounds pretty good. I'm expecting to see some D.Va-dressed Nintendo girls.
I'd really like to see some Splatoon crossover, myself.

You will take control of four playable characters which rise against a team that seemingly wants to take over the world - but are their motives really that cliché, or are there deeper motives behind their actions?

I don't know jack about Overwatch! I doubt just following the sci-fi themes you suggested or study the characters' design would be enough to make my entry feel like Overwatch.

Life Hack: The characters are all pretty cool, loved, and memorable so probably just take a peek at the characters and find a way to draw them as Mario characters. You won't think it's special but an overwatch fan will ;)

This sounds like a pretty interesting theme. I like that logo you made, Black Boo (assuming that you did make it). I'm looking forward to seeing what members will make for this competition!

The contest is going in the opposite direction, actually, but still good advice!

I'll definitely be entering, despite the fact that my brain has not memorized enough of the first-person shooter to fully understand its plot and story that has made the game so appealing to many organisms who live on the planet currently in the Milky Way known as Earth.

I don't think there's a plot, it's multiplayer-only

there's not an overarching plot per se (afaik), but there's a decent bit of supplementary backstory/side-story stuff for the characters and what they do and other things

I might enter but I just hope something that could reasonably fit in the universe's style qualifies - else I think I might have trouble coming up with something that works

Overwatch just has a general synopsis for the characters to live in and interact with one another. The actual game, however, is entirely non-canon, but even then the characters still have loads of personality with one another.

As for the contest itself, it's pretty loose in terms of what qualifies. Just look at the characters and you'll get a pretty good idea of what you can and can't do. The Overwatch universe is very broad, since you have everything from time-travelling pilots, to talking gorillas, to junkyard maniacs, to power suit knights, to dwarf-like engineers, to borderline technomancers--you all have a lot of room to work in.

Are we going to need an extension on this? It's a bit disheartening to not see any entries thus far.

It is. That's a nice logo and idea you have.

I could throw in a sketch before the deadline.

While I do agree that it's rather sad that we didn't really get any entries yet, I'm not really sure if an extension is really going to help or not. It's just that most of the competitions that I've seen around here on MFGG and use extensions don't seem to really gain more entries, but instead drag out longer. You could grant the competition an extension if you want to, Black Boo, I just want to say that doing so might not likely help the competition get more entries.

Anyway, I decided to draw an entry (from start to finish) today, and here's the result:

Image

It's supposed to be a redesign of King Dedede, who would've been named as General Dedede.

Looks like I have to take back my words. Something happened to throw my life upside down for the next few days.

My entry's a bit late. I hadn't noticed that the finished product wasn't saved, causing me to have to redo the lineart. I do, however, have what was left of it here. I'll edit this post when it's done.

I think I'm going to give everyone a week extension since we only have three entries. That's what we used to do in the old days, anyway.

So the new date that voting begins is January 29th.
