So I WAS going to wait until I got input from the other moderators, but apparently they're busy with life, so... WITHOUT FURTHER ADO...

NiGHTS TURNS 20 THIS YEAR!!!! :iconkermityayplz: SO, let's have a Design an Anni T-shirt Contest! =D

Design a NiGHTS themed 20th logo with the intention of having it eventually be available as a limited edition shirt. The winner gets a free shirt. (And everyone else is welcome to order one if they want...) I'm debating having two runner ups get their design on a pillow case, but we'll see how the responses go.

The winner gets their design front and center, nice and big on the shirt, and everyone else's entries will either be slightly smaller and posted elsewhere on the shirt, or posted all over the back. If it looks like a group compilation of the other logos will work, we may make that available as well.



Rules


-We need at least 10 entries (and at least 15 votes for a winner) in order for this contest to go through.

-Deadline for turning in art will be NiGHTS' birthday, July 5th. That gives you a little over a month to get an entry done! Start planning your schedule around how much time you think you'll need!

-Logo should include the number 20, the NiGHTS name (logo font is win) and NiGHTS him/herself.

-Anniversary catch phrase optional.

-Either costume is fine, but please be tasteful and don't include nekkid NiGHTS, or NiGHTS slapping his/her butt or something silly like that.

-If you want to include other canon characters, that's fine too, but rules of tastefulness still apply, so don't have NiGHTS and Reala making out on the number 20 or anything. Not everyone is going to want that on a shirt.

-Images that do NOT come in first place MAY be edited in order to fit on the shirt. (For instance, if a person who does NOT win has designed a very elaborate 20th logo with 60 characters, it may be edited down to just include the basics for an entry, in order to conserve space on the shirt. Also, non winning art might be shrunk to fit.)

-For this contest only, NO fan characters - this is a celebration of NiGHTS birthday, not your characters' birthdays. If you want to do a duplicate version of your entry and include your own characters, we'd love to see it, but we won't be putting OCs on the birthday shirt design.

-No blood and guts, obviously. That goes with the whole being tasteful thing.

-Cake is good. Confetti is better. (But a pain to draw.)

-Voting will continue until the last day of July. Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

-Try to work on an 8.5" x 11" canvas with 300 dpi, so that when it's put on a shirt the quality of the image doesn't suffer. If you're working on traditional media, try to keep your design on white paper so that it can be clipped to put on a shirt properly.

-WHERE POSSIBLE, please don't use a background. A clear background is preferred, but I understand not everyone can do that. If you must use a background, please make it white so it can be clipped out of the final shirt design.

-Submit your entry to the Contest folder in the group. A new blog entry with all of the participants will be posted after the cut-off date.

Edit: additional rule: Seems obvious, but, no official art please! By fans for fans, so just fan art.



REMEMBER, WE WILL NEED 10 ENTRIES AND 15 VOTES IN ORDER FOR THIS CONTEST TO BE A GO! SO GO ADVERTISE TO YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR NiGHTS FAN GROUPS, YOUR BEST FRIEND GAMER, YOUR TWITTER, WHATEVER!!!! BUT GET THE WORD OUT!!!

I don't really understand how this works: will the winning design be printed on its own, or with the others entries too?
I'm asking since I don't think putting all the designs on the same shirt is a good idea, since all the different styles and such will surely clash...  ^^'

The winning one will be front and center alone on the front. The others will be smaller on the back, unless otherwise specifically requested. (Kinda like how sometimes you get a whole bunch of band logos on the back of a shirt for a fancy concert event.)

Question: The color of the shirt itself can factor into the design: Are there any particular shirt colors that would be preferable to work against (such as black or white), or will shirts be made to order depending on what color (such as purple) is preferred by the artist of the winning design?

At the moment, since I'm the one pressing the shirt, colors are limited to just white. (Like ye olde promotional shirts ya used to get many moon ago. I had an old Sonic 3D blast shirt, and a half a dozen cheap, white, character t-shirts from ebay's warehouse from when they ordered too many.) If I happen to get dark heat press paper before then, I will update the contest to reflect that. But they cost roughly the same as an air conditioner and I am dying of heat stroke in this summer heat. Priorities. I will try to get dark transfers, but best to prepare for a white one.

Um... I don't think so? I don't know if you can submit to the contest folder if you're not a member, though. If it doesn't let you submit it to the club, shoot me a message and I'll request the piece be included from our end. =)

*pops over from NiDCom* Cool, maybe I'll come up with something.. I think maybe in the rules it should be clear to not use any official art, just in case to sidestep any possible copyright infringement or whatnot..

And just to note for anyone who may not know, the way to save a file with no background is generally as a PNG.

I wish someone had told me about the png thing way back when I was learning html. Cause I jumped backwards through SO many hoops to try and figure out how it was done.

And good call on the official art thing.

What pixels size would the picture need to be? I may be able to resize one to a bigger size if I know the full size you are looking for in pixels

Gah, uh... I dunno. I can print up to 11"x17" for our shirt heat press, so... Anything that wouldn't look blurry and pixilated if put on that size of transfer paper.

Sadly I wouldn't know that size ;v; best I can do is change my canvas in MS Paint to the inches provided which are 857 x 1106 pixels

*checks* 8.5 x 11 in 300 dpi is 2550 by 3300 pixels. 11 x 17 is 3300 by 5100. BUT WE'LL TAKE WHATEVER YOU CAN DO, because entries are good.

I only have MS Paint -shrugs- If I wanted it to be the size you wanted that would be around 6700 x 8400 something in size! and at that size it would crash 70% of the time or take forever to do an action. 

I do have an image prepared for NiGHTS 20th though :3

Pffttt never! Toma such a creep, Ukyo forever

XD Well, if ya can't hit the canvas size, I understand. I'd still love to see whatever you can do for an entry! (We'll work around the size thing as best as we can in editing.)

And yes, Toma was a bit overzealous with the cage. But at least he didn't try to kill her! lol =D My next vote would be poor, sheltered Kent.

I try something, if possible I will rough sketch and try to see if it can be easily resized without looking pixelated, not sure if drawing in FLASH would be better

Kent is just, adorables. Ikki was ok though I hated how blind he was to his fans and how really your character was dumbed down just for plot

Agreed. The fan thing really irked me with his story. And for some reason I just couldn't get into Shin's story at all. He annoyed me too bad. (I didn't know you could pick Orion until waaaaay after I'd been reading the translations of the games.)

Yeah! There needs to be an Amnesia Other where Heroine actually has some backbone.
