Doubles Showdown 9: Superhero Duo Oct. 22nd, 2009 @ 02:25 PM Reply

With voting over for Doubles Showdown 8, a new challenge arises! These are the same rules from last time, so for the newbies looking to jump in the pool MAKE SURE YOU READ THEM!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Number 1 ultimate rule: PLEASE BE SERIOUS ABOUT JOINING!
- This is because you are not alone in your participation, but you must think that without you, your partner is sure to fail. This is unfair to them if you end up crapping out. The set 2 week time limit is generous enough that you can complete a piece, even if you live in separate time zones.

2 - All entrants will be screened. Thats right! Not to be a stalker, but I will be looking through everyones profile/posts to find some of your artwork to gauge your ability/dedication to actual effort. This is not to be cruel, and I am not looking for the next Da Vinci, but to assure that the #1 ultimate rule stays intact. If you have not been selected to join, you will be notified via PM. If there is enough people who have been "ousted" I may use these people in another random team drawing among themselves, as long as there are no objections. Take note that your partner may be unreliable/a stick figure spammer, but if you are included in this category, we will go over it in PM's.

3 - This is to promote cooperation, create a great collaboration piece, and make new friends! Have fun with the project; be competitive, but don't get carried away/bitch at your partner. It is necessary to use an instant messenger client, e-mail, or at the very least the Newgrounds PM system (which you can provide links to your .psd/.fla/.etc file on megaupload or some other hosting site) You need to be able to communicate, and if you are not cool with that, then why would you want to participate in a collaboration project anyway?

4 - IMPORTANT! - If you do not respond to your partner within 3 days after teams are sorted, YOU ARE SUBJECT TO LOSE YOUR PARTNER! Let me know if you have extenuating circumstances, but make contact ASAP. If you are left partnerless, you will be put into a re-draw. This is a double check against the #1 ultimate rule!
- - - - - - - - - - - -
Here are some familiar rules that also apply:

Photoshop, Flash, Painter, Gimp, and other art programs are a must, unless you are an exquisite MSpaint artist, or have a scanner/digital camera.
- It is recommended that you provide a link to a higher quality image
- Once you know who your partner is, PM them with your contact info (Instant Messanger, e-mail, etc.)
you another partner, but I really am hoping this doesn't happen.
- Abide by all NG art forum and site rules
- BOTH artists must contribute!
- Give a description of what it is, and who did what in your piece!
- - - - - -
Okay, so now that all that good stuff is outta the way. Here's how it works!

Until Sunday October 25th, at 11:59 PM US Eastern time, you are to post in this thread letting me know that you are "in." On Monday the 26th, I will write down the entrants onto tiny little pieces of paper, crumple the hell out of them, and throw them into a hat. I will then be picking the teams at total random! Don't bitch about your partner please.

From that October the 26th, you have until Sunday, November 8th, 11:59 PM US eastern time. to complete your team's piece.

Now to the Theme of this Showdown!
SUPERHERO DUO!

- Excellent, creativity flows with this one! Think Batman and Robin, but much more creative than that. Make them funny or badass, their theme is up to you. Feel free to do Villains instead. Make sure the viewer can easily identify your character by their attributes and garments. Have fun with it and play around with ideas for a bit til you find something you like!

If you think I forgot something, or have a quarrel with some of the rules, feel free to shoot me a PM and I will try and straighten it out.

- - - - - - - - - - - -
Alrighty, hope everyone has fun this time around, so let's get this shindig started!

Damn, I would love to be in for this one, but I've got my remaining midterm exams left, so it's crunch time and I won't have much time for the artwork. But I will still be following this thread and casting a vote at the end.

Im in!
also; should we make a seperate pool for poeple who cant do anything next week? If you are away next week how do you expect to contact your partner? As far as im concerned, Its all fine if you want to do the actual drawing in the 2nd week, but you do have to be able to communicate in that first week. If you can only work in the 2nd week, chances are your partner can only work in the first week...
Also also: awesaurus are you going to copypaste this mistake every week from now one?

- Once you know who your partner is, PM them with your contact info (Instant Messanger, e-mail, etc.)

you another partner, but I really am hoping this doesn't happen.

that is quite a weird sentence isnt it?

It's a old danish vacum cleaner brand. Funny story: the Nilfisk company tried to sell their vacum cleaners to the english buyes in the early 50's. But the english education in Denmark at the time must have been pretty poor. They introduced the brand under the slogan: Nilfisk sucks. They never sold very well :D

Hmm, I don't think we will have a problem too much, as long as people know that their partner is going to be away. I'll make note of who won't be around and when I post the teams I'll leave a little message for their partner.

Also also: awesaurus are you going to copypaste this mistake every week from now one?
you another partner, but I really am hoping this doesn't happen.

Haha, definitely going to keep that around now for nostalgia! Nah, but my bad, I must have typed a bunch before that then deleted it a few showdowns ago and missed it, thanks for finding it cubey!

You guys think it should be allowed to do one Superhero and one Supervillain, counting as a duo? I think that might be pretty cool seeing the protagonist and their arch nemesis!

I totally dare ToucanTheJoe to join this. Double fruit-loopy dare!
also, yay for TOAS and Nae being in the mix! Not-yay for Lundsfryd's school work :(

Well, I'm gonna be away this weekend, but it would be totally cool if someone responsible wanted to take over my duties of screening entrants and the such and picking the names out of a hat! I can go over it in PM's with how I usually do things if you are interested!

I'm leaving tomorrow around 2 board time, so hit me up before then!

I had work during the last doubles but it didn't stop me so it shouldn't be a problem this time either, i'll still have evenings and weekends so it shouldn't be a problem.
