Avat Discussion Jul. 5th, 2011 @ 07:09 PM Reply

Hello Newgrounds.

This is where all discussion for the AVAT art tournament will be placed. Because of the previous title of the discussion 'AVAT Art Signups', I have decided to create a new thread to avoid confusion.

To start it off, we will start talking about the sub-round.

You may also post wips of your art in here too.

Thanks

-SketchyEntertainment

He already said it in the sub-round thread, but to repeat it here:

'A NEW ARRIVAL' is the theme for this sub-round.
It can range from a birth of a human to an alien. It can be an object entering the earth's atmosphere or Chuck Norris visiting a criminal. It can be anything that is a 'surprise'.

I'm confused about how this works, is this only for people who did not advance to the second round or does everyone need to?
That said has the 2nd round roster been released yet?

I feel like we are being judged by who we are rather than what we make, or atleast for a couple people.

Yes, I am a bit skeptical on a couple of the judges voting ways, but I guess it is their opinion. Most would vote 9 or so, the others would vote 1 or 2, but as I said, it is there opinion.

I wish you all the best for the sub-round.

So far i have judged the artwork based on the artwork... not the person doing it...

if i was to have voted on who did it... my votes would be completely different to what they where...

a lot of new faces got higher votes then some of the regulars that come here...

i would rather see the best art going in then the art made by people i talk to, that is why i chose to be a judge.

Now... for all off you who DIDNT make in first time... you have a 2ND chance to sneak your way in!...

GOOD LUCK all... and may the best artist(s) WIN!

A bit of advice to all the people in the sub-round.

1) Make sure that your piece is fully cleaned up. You want consistent lines and colouring, nothing splotchy or unfinished looking.

2) Give it detail. Even something as simple as shading and highlights can improve a piece drastically.

3) Make sure it fits the theme. You don't want it to come across like the concept of the theme was just slapped in last minute. Use the theme as your main focal point and work around it.

4) Be original. Fan art can be done well, but it's still fan art. It's much more impressive when you bring something fresh and new to the stand.

Sorry, I have been away for the past couple of days as I have been enjoying my holidays. Also, I think it is better if round 2 is delayed a little more. Many people are in the Robot Day spirit, so we will leave it for July 12th.

Thank you and sorry.

I will pm everyone who has made it in the second round when the competition starts.

Whoever is in the sub-round better get their acts in gear. The deadline is Saturday, so you have 5 more days left to work on your entry. I'm figuring if their aren't enough entries, whoever enters will get an automatic buy.

I am yet to do that, I am so sorry. I cannot believe I did not think of that. However, a few people who have been on the forums often have been notified by fellow artists, so I have been told. I will get straight onto all pm's.

Here is the information for the thread.

I am quite sure I have missed something out here, so please tell me if I have.

======== ======== ======== ========

AVAT - Round 2 - Medieval

Most of these questions are from the original thread itself.

This is the second round of the AVAT tournament. The following questions should help you out if you are having trouble.

If I have missed something within this thread, please reassure me and I will answer your question.

What is the theme for round 2?

Medieval. It can be anything medieval, such as a building, or clothing. If you are not the greatest at this theme, use your imagination and expand the theme. Just make sure something medieval takes up most of the screen.

How will this round be arranged?

The top 12 people will continue to the third and final round from this round. Best of luck to everyone.

Will there be a break after this round?

Yes, there will be a 1 week break after this round if all goes to plan.

Who are the judges?

TurkeyOnAStick
Jomillex
LegolaSS
Big-Jonny-13
S0LK
SketchyEntertainment
Ornery
Luis
Hyptosis

These 9 judges will take their time into reviewing a few of the art pieces as well, if they desire.

When are all art submissions due?

12:00am (Midnight) Saturday the 6th of September, Newgrounds time. You are given 26 days to submit your art, so best of luck to all.

If you have a late submission, a few points will be deducted from your score, depending on what all judges agree on. If you are way over the deadline, a disqualification may be set.

Please finish and submit it early so you will not be stress about point deductions.

======== ======== ========= ========
Also, please tag 'AVAT' in your submission to make the art searches even easier, in case you forget to post it in the forum.
======== ======== ======== =========

Best of luck with it all, I hope you all do well. If you are unsure about an art piece, please feel free into asking a judge for their opinion. This will help your score with the judges...possibly.

Thank you and once again, good luck.

-SketchyEntertainment

Prizes are still the same as the previous post

AVAT discussion:http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs /topic/1258158

======== ======== ======== ========

Thanks. Please read through and give me advice. Once it is perfect, I will submit it.

Just gotta hate when you've proofread it all over again and again and then miss some tiny detail, eh?
I assume 6th of August is the real deadline?

Sounds like you meant the 6th of August, rather than September.
