Oh wow screenshot season already. Here's a rough sketch of a manface

It took a lot of effort to not make the caption "FIRST!!!11!!1!" or something similarly immature :)

Woah, blender. Are those 3d characters? they look awesomely 2d

Yeah, I'm trying to use this year's NATA as an opportunity to learn 3d by actually committing to it for a longer time than a week. Although, for this first round, I'm trying to make the 3d look as 2d as possible so that I can have hand-drawn/painted backgrounds and stuff without it looking out of place. Because I'm terrible at modeling. And animating, too, at this point. It's a step towards getting better, hopefully.

Like what Brad Bird does with his works on The Incredibles and Ratatouille. That's a pretty bold move. Can't wait to see the results.

I'm guessing because the event is sponsored and NATA makes money off of this. Same reason they dont allow trademarked names

Note the word "excess" and "profane" - nudity is fine, just milking it for score is bad. Art-like nudity should be totally fine imho as long as it doesn't feel forced in in my humble opinion.

Ryry67dude, the copyright rule has nothing to do with the profanity rule. The purpose of the profanity rule is to keep the contest in good taste and to expand your audience.

It's not a joke. The creator of this contest created it due to someone pulling April Fool's in the past.

No quotation marks are needed in the tag.
Also, I don't see a problem with including Pico in your entry, so long as it still fits the theme and was made with this contest in mind.

Am I allowed to modify an unfinished, work-in-progress and tailor it to this contest? It's work-in-progress and has never been submitted anywhere and hasn't gotten much of its story done yet.

Yes - if it's tailored under the topic, I don't see a single reason why not.

Yes - if it's tailored under the topic, I don't see a single reason why not.

From my understanding, the reason the topic is in place is to prevent people from using work they'd worked on prior to the competition.

By that logic, I'm gonna say that's probably not allowed, but if you start from scratch, you can probably use the same idea. If you ask me, though, you shouldn't sacrifice a project you've already worked on just to squeeze it into the competition theme.

I should clarify. I mainly want to use the assets from that project, and only a slight piece of the "finished" parts and modify them to the competition. I won't be sacrificing anything because the reason it's unfinished is because it has been abandoned already. There's nothing for me to do with it and no motivation to even finish it as it is :).
