Title: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on October 02, 2011, 12:54:42 AM
The Aero Art Contest

I just wanted to say a great big "thank-you," because this week, the supershigi youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/supershigi) reached 10,000 subscribers!

(http://leebleforest.wordpress.com/files/2008/03/aero.png)(http://leebleforest.wordpress.com/files/2009/05/aero-angry.png)(http://leebleforest.wordpress.com/files/2009/05/aero-nervous.png)

As I mentioned earlier, I wanted to hold a special event here and over at my youtube channel to say thank-you... And as you probably know, that event is an art contest starring the one and only, Aero the Leeble.  I will post a video later this week (which I'll make sure to put in this thread), but if you're part of this forum, you get to know all the details about the topic, rules, and prizes before anyone else^^

Topic: Put Aero in another video game.
Feel free to do what you will with that... You could have Aero holding a Portal gun, battling Dr. Wily, riding around on Yoshi, dressing up as an Orc, planting Pea Shooters... whatever you'd like!  You can use whatever art style you like: hand drawn sketches, pixel art, a clay figurine, a cake with icing art on top... anything really, as long as you can send me a picture of it!

The Rules:

Prizes and Winners:
There will be two winners: One will be chosen, and one will be selected at random... so everyone has a chance to win!  Additionally, everyone who submits their artwork has the option of having it displayed on a special contest page here at the website.  The prizes will include:

I'm sure most of you know what Aero looks like by now, since she's all over the forum layout... but just in case you need some more references, below (under the spoiler tag) are a bunch of Aero pictures (from concept sketches to fan art)... And if you need anymore, you can go back and play the Melolune demo (http://www.freshpulp.com/shigi/Melolune.exe), or just look around the forum B)  I hope you have fun... Good luck, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  • You must be subscribed to both the supershigi ([url]http://www.youtube.com/user/supershigi[/url]) and shigiteatime ([url]http://www.youtube.com/user/shigiteatime[/url]) youtube channels.


Do you need your own YouTube channel to subscribe to other people's channels? Just asking because I don't have one. Thanks :)

Looking forward to everyone's entries too ^_^

I think nowadays you only need a gmail account, but I'm not 100% sure.

I don't have one of those either, will have to get one :) Thanks for the heads up, and congrats again Laura on getting 10,000 subscribers ^_^

that's correct, if you have any google account at all then you already have a youtube account :)

Ooh, congrats on 10K subscribers! I'll dust off my creativity.

I'm really looking forward to everyone's submissions! 

@small: I loved the thread you made with the food, perler bead, and stitchwork video game art!  I'm super curious what you'll come up with ^_^
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: small on October 05, 2011, 02:13:35 PM
Shigi - y'know, I completely forgot about the food and the perler beads! *slaps forehead* Hahahaha! Oh man, I've forgotten what I can do! Haha!

I can't seem to subscribe to shigiteatime for some reason...or can I join even when subscribed to only one of the two channels?

@Substance20: Hm, youtube might have been undergoing maintenance at the time... is it still not working? But regardless, no worries -- you're part of the community so you can totally join the contest!

Okay everyone, the video is finally up! Note: the contest deadline has been extended to November 12th because I was a tad late getting this video online:

Post by: Elvick on October 13, 2011, 12:11:57 PM
I have some interesting ideas, but I don't think I can pull them off well. So will probably end up doing either something not very interesting, or frustrate myself while trying to draw and not finish.

I'm still going to try though, since there's a random shot.

AERO ART CONTEST!  :thumbup:

I'm excited to see all of the entries afterward. Will you be showcasing them?
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Devohkan on October 15, 2011, 03:33:52 PM
I think I'll give it a shot. However my skills with Photoshop are, well, less than stellar.
I do have a pretty good idea. But it would probably look better in my head........ Oh well.....

I would love to! People can let me know whether or not they want me to showcase their art when they submit their entries... and if they say "yes" then I'll probably put them in a video or on a special section of the website.

Post by: DeanDip on October 16, 2011, 12:29:21 AM
What I planned to do is turning out a lot harder than I thought it would be.  I chose a very geometric scene in a 3D game, and I feel like I don't quite have the tools to pull off drawing the scenery (accurately) in the angle that it's in, but I'll give it my best shot.  I'll be very happy if I can pull it off.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Devohkan on October 17, 2011, 02:38:05 AM
The problem I'm going to have with mine is that I have to take the first screenshot (which is done) and then Photoshop Aero in. And my Photoshop skills are..... well....... less than stellar, shall we say.I do have a brilliant (well, to me, anyway) idea in my head, but I'm slightly worried I wont be able to put it into practice. I would be interested to see what else people have come up with, I reckon that would be really interesting.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on October 17, 2011, 10:33:35 AM
Because a couple folks have sent me questions about this: Keep in mind that "put Aero in another video game" doesn't only mean literally putting her into a screenshot from another game... (although you're totally free to do this if you want).  I was actually thinking more along the lines of a piece of art with Aero + something from another game (whether that's the setting, a character, a prop, etc.).  For example, Aero could be doing random farming tasks (Harvest Moon), or having a cup of coffee with Brewster (Animal Crossing), or wearing a Marine Suit (Starcraft)... lots of different combinations are okay :)
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Pat on October 17, 2011, 10:47:21 AM
That would be tempting. I think Kirby and Aero could get along nicely...

Post by: Strawfairy on October 19, 2011, 09:02:56 AM
If I can get motivated, I'll try to enter.

I'm mainly after the Melolune code, because it'd feel weird having PVZ stuff since I've never played the game. I really, really need to, as well. D=

I would buy Melolune, but all I've got like 3 bucks in change. Lols.

Post by: castlefan1 on October 19, 2011, 03:52:23 PM
I have a great idea for mine, but I'm not sure if I can draw Aero. Mine is going to be with Plants, vs Zombies. But Laura can we have some words with our art? Mine will have more words than art.

Okay, seriously, how many entries can we get?  Cause I've already doodled like 18 different things, and of those eighteen I just wanna send half of them and be all ":3" about it.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on October 27, 2011, 02:55:17 PM
@sixty: Haha... how about this: You can submit as many as you want for the main part of the contest, but for the random selection part I'll just enter one of them :)

Waaaaah so glad I looked here! Totally starting mine in class tonight.

Post by: Unnamed on October 29, 2011, 07:14:32 PM
I'm just playing with the though - what if I do take the "Put Aero in another video game!" literally, after all, and I actually put her in another video game? I'm thinking of an open-source trash game, for example, just for fun.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on November 01, 2011, 01:18:57 AM
@Wolfiee: Glad to hear that!  I'm really looking forward to seeing your entry^^

@Unnamed: That's a great idea!  You're totally welcome to do something like that^^

I think my brother would like a picture but he is young and doesn't have an e-mail or YouTube account. So can i take a picture of his and mine, and make mine for the actual contest. If I win I will tell him it was his that won
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!

16 hours later, I have finished my contest piece! I'm excited to see all the entires!

D'awww thanks! :3

Laura - Are you going to announce the winner on the 12th? Or will you just stop accepting entries? I've been counting down the days till the 12th so I was just curious haha.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on November 07, 2011, 01:51:15 AM
I think I'll just stop accepting entries on the 12th... I'll need some time to choose one, and then make a video about it.  Oh, your entry was adorable!! 
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Wolfiee on November 07, 2011, 09:31:15 AM
Rats!!! :P Okay then, I'll be stalking your Youtube for when you announce it :D

And thank you! I was really happy with the idea and I was glad I was able to execute it the way I wanted. Hopefully I got Aero right! I can't wait to share it :3

Thank you

Haha, yes that is fine :)  You can send up until the last minute (any time zone).  So even if you send it to me midnight Hawaii time I will accept it.

Hey Laura I have a question, how will people receive the prizes. I am curious. The signed box and  the pvz plushies.

p.s. Have you seen my art!  :)
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on November 11, 2011, 06:05:09 PM
Once I announce the winners, I'll need an address to send the prizes to.  Then I'll ship them out!
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Astragoth on November 12, 2011, 03:38:34 AM
Any chance I could please get a timer on how many hours there are till it's the end of the 12th over there? :)
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Wolfiee on November 12, 2011, 10:30:51 AM
I think she said she'll accept entries until midnight for each timezone. So whenever it's midnight where you live, that's when it ends.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!

Cool thanks, that means I've put it in under the deadline YAY! ^_^
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: supershigi on November 12, 2011, 01:54:14 PM
Oh, I'll accept entries up until midnight in the latest possible time zone.  So if you're in Australia, you can still submit up until midnight in Samoa, haha :P  Basically, it's not super rigid.

Let me just take a moment to say...

YOU ARE ALL SO AWESOME!!

Hehe... I'm probably gonna head to bed soon, but I'll do another check in the morning to see if anyone got theirs in at the last minute.  I'm blown away by these entries, and honored that folks took the time to participate.  It's been super fun seeing Aero in all these different ways.  I'll keep you guys updated (I'm probably gonna need some time to decide, but I'll let you all know as soon as the winners have been finalized)!

Oh, and I'll probably email each of you, but if you haven't already... please let me know if it's okay to share your artwork on the website or in a video^^

I'm sorry, I know I said I would enter something for the contest, but laziness and partly lack of drawing skill got the better of me.

Hehe, no worries... I'll probably hold more contests in the future! 

I'm seriously having the toughest time choosing... why are you guys so good??
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!

Laura, is it okay if I put mine up on my DA even before you decide the winner?
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!

Ah, thank-you for checking :)  I've done that before, too (where I send something multiple times just in case)... I had an incident in college when I had thought I'd emailed a paper, but for some reason it didn't send and was just in "draft" form.

Don't worry, they'll be posted here (and probably a few other places too).  The reason I haven't announced anything yet is because I'm actually trying to secure some more prizes so that I can have a couple more winners :)

So you will gather more prizes and every winner will get the same prizes right? Or will the rest have less prizes?

So you will gather more prizes and every winner will get the same prizes right? Or will the rest have less prizes?

The 1st place and random winner will still receive the same prize as mentioned in this thread... as for any additional winners, it depends on what I can find :)

If I win I want your signature Laura.

Yeah lol, I sent like 5 or 6 or something.
But the quality is shotty so you'd have to add them all together to get one quality entry anyway haha

Signature from Laura would be awesome ^.^ I would especially love the PvZ's artist's signature. His style is very similar to mine, which is one of the reasons I love the game so much.

Just in case anyone was curious: People were allowed to send in more than one entry, but for the random drawing portion of the competition, only one entry per person is used.  So if someone submitted 3 entries, all 3 would be considered for the "chosen" part of the competition... but only one of their entries would be submitted for the random drawing so that they don't have an unfair advantage. 

Also, I've chosen the winners and I will be posting them this week!

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry, I know I said I'd post the winners this week, but I'm not quite finished with the announcement video.  I'm almost done though, just gotta record one more part and edit it.  Hopefully I'll be able to post it tomorrow ^_^

I'm uploading the video announcement to youtube right now... it's at 97% and will probably take a few more minutes to process.  But I'll link it as soon as it's done!  Also, as soon as Reives sends me the webpage link with the other entries, I'll make sure to add that here and to the video info bar^^

OMG I can't believe I won honorable mention ;n; I am sooooooo happy right now I'm shaking!!! Thank you! ;n;

I feel exactly the same! Still shaking with happiness as I type this :D Thanks heaps for the kind words Laura, and also can't wait to see the page with the other entries as well ^_^

That Paper Craft art is SO awesome ^_^ Wonder how long it took to do all that, its such a great job! ...........Looks like someone loves the ZomBotany levels as well (Wall-nut on Zombie's head) hehe.

Wolfiee - I LOVE your Aero-Cattail pic! Love the 'anime expressions' too :D The 4th and 5th - especially the 5th emotion, is the most hilarious hahaha! Btw, did you put the PVZ background in behind the Aero-cattails, or did you make that as well? Looks so good, the whole pic looks like its straight out of the game! Not kidding either.

Congrats Small on being the random winner! (especially getting your name pulled out of a hat with other people's names in there too!) Your art looks awesome, though I honestly don't know what 'o-kami food' is :S Is it just food put together to make a piece of artwork or something else? I'm not sure :P

To the 2nd place winning entry, I love the pose that Aero is doing, especially with the cute little helm (can I say helm?) Hmmm, makes me wonder if someone did a WoW entry with Aero riding a cute little mount or something :D

And to the 1st place winning entry, that's just cute :D Especially the mo ^_^ Great job on the crocheting too! Especially love the hat and wings haha :P

Congrats to Professor Yoshi for winning the other community award, he definitely deserves it! Love all his artwork, and had no idea that the "Laura-Melolune" character avatar pic was from him :D

The papercraft one is so cute! All the drawings are so gorgeous, and the plushie takes mad skill. Wolfiee, I love all your characters' expressions! I can't wait to see the other submissions!

Huzzah to Astragoth for being a friendly fellow! =)
*bounce bounce*

And to Professor Yoshi too - I see his art everywhere!

Oh! Forgot to respond to this -- there is a high res version on the above website (it's not super full size, but hopefully it's big enough... if not, perhaps I can ask the artist if they have a larger size)^^

Amazing work everyone!!

I am so impressed with all of the art entries! The papercraft one was so cool and Small's FOOD art!! So unique! (did you get to eat it after?) haha. So cool to hear Wolfiee, Astra and all our forum people mentioned in the video too! I think this was a huge success as far as contests go and it's so cool to see what a creative little community we all share in.  <3

I'm just about to go take a look at the full gallery! It was a great idea for a contest, very creative and open-ended. I think the paperart was really something unique. I was actually expecting to see someone do Aero sushi for some reason!
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: Pat on December 07, 2011, 12:42:32 PM
Wow! That is some amazing work!

I can hardly imagine how tough it was for you to choose...

Congratulations to everyone! Particularly Astragoth for getting a shout-out! (Jeaaaalooous! Makes me wish I entered and did more...but I'm a bit backgroundy, and bad with pressure and dealing with certain things...GLaDOS was right. )

It's a shame I'm not great with art. I was going to do something with Kirby, no doubt. That said, my profile pic is a bit Aero-like anyway! Too bad I didn't draw it.
Or Meat Boy; I don't know why, though. Something like Aero being saved by Meat Boy...

Anyway, well done again! I rambled a bit too much. My bad. I doubt anybody read half of this, anyway.  :P

I wonder what other contests there will be...hopefully something I could enter.
Title: Re: Aero Art Contest!
Post by: small on December 07, 2011, 12:49:41 PM
Good job on putting up the gallery Reives! =)

Oh man, after seeing all of the other art, they're so good! I am truly lucky T_T It's like a test in video game knowledge. I love the Silent Hill 2, Metroid, and the Phoenix Wright one. Professor Yoshi's looks like it can be a professional CD cover. Astragoth did cell shading on the Heavy BY MOUSE which is really impressive! The other doll looks so cute but I have trouble pin-pointing the game....I want to say Castlevania?

Astragoth - I did choose a somewhat obscure video game - the game is called Okami, and it's on the PS2 and Wii. Hahaha XD One time I called my plate creations "bento" and someone blasted me about "how it's not in a box so it's not bento" so I just call it "food art" now. =D

Spellbunny - yeah I did end up eating it, hahaha! I wanted to give it to the boyfriend when it was fresh but he was busy helping his cousin with stuff, so hours later I ate it because I didn't want to risk gifting him with unfresh food. The cheese was tough and dry like jerky!

Pat - you should definitely enter next time. =) I am quite good at "paralysis by analysis" myself, so sometimes you just gotta jump in!

Red - red bell pepper, orange - carrot, yellow - takuan, green - cucumbers, purple - white cheese dyed with red cabbage juice, white - havarti cheese, pink - ham, black - seaweed, red quinoa as base, happiness coins - colored soy paper. I was pretty crazy because I started cutting the seaweed using a pair of huge scissors before realizing that wasn't going to... cut it *rim shot*. =B

Obscure, or one of the best video games ever? I choose the latter.

And thanks, Reives! I'm actually glad I didn't have the free time to enter. There's no way I could've beaten those! o: Though my idea was to make Aero a Pikmin! XD Mayeb I still will one day, just for fun.

"paralysis by analysis"

Hm, I suppose that's something to call it. I suppose that's a goal for us both; then again, you got a lucky random pick; hehe. That said, Okami is indeed awesome...I remember watching my sister play it, and I remember getting lent it; though I never got a chance to play it. Aside from that, I'll try to enter next time.  :)

Also, I forgot to mention, I would like to thank you as well, P. Yoshi. I agree; your artwork is great. I love seeing it everywhere on the forums.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the contest prizes (as well as the community awards and TRUEfoe's belated care package) have FINALLY been sent out!  So you can expect your goodies in 7-10 days depending on where you are in the world (I'm guessing small will get hers sooner) ^_^ 

I'm really sorry about the delay... a lot of things kept coming up (had to wait for certain items to get sent, wanted to make sure the signed copies for the 3 main winners had signatures from everyone on the team so I waited until Rich came down, problems with my P.O. Box for return address purposes, got really sick last month, etc.)... So I included some fun snacks to apologize, I hope you enjoy!

I had a really crazy time getting the packages actually sent for some reason, too.  First I took them to the mailing center where I normally send things.  I had to find a cart to bring them all in because even though they aren't heavy, the boxes were really tall when stacked up and quite awkward to carry.  After standing in line for a while, the lady told me that I couldn't mail the international packages from there since they weren't an official post office (just the mailing center).  So I mailed the domestic ones, carted the rest of the packages back to the car, and drove to a post office.  When I got to the front of the line there, the lady told me I was using the wrong boxes.  She pointed me towards the right ones, and gave me scissors and packing tape.  I then proceeded to open up all the boxes I'd neatly packaged the night before, fit them into the new boxes, taped them up, rewrote all the addresses on both the boxes and the customs forms, and got back in line.  Thankfully the lady remembered me and eventually pulled me to the front of the line so I could send them.  I felt such relief after I got them sent off!

Thanks again to everyone who submitted art or has been helping out with things around here.  This community has grown into something really cool in the last year, and I'm really happy to have been able to get to know all of you more.  I will try to have more contests (with shorter turnaround times on the prizes) in the near future!

You don't have to apologize, sometimes things happen that are out of our control, or being sick (which sucks) :S It's really generous and kind of you to start up a contest where you're sending out prizes in the first place, but even more so when you have had to go through all the post office drama you've just said ^_^ So no need to say sorry, and thanks heaps for taking the time to send all the parcels out as well, hope it wasn't too hectic for you!

I agree with this - was showing my aunty the first winner who made the crocheted (?) Aero SMB bear, she couldn't believe someone spent the time making it :D And gonna be looking forward to the next contest too... thanks again Laura - and all the other people who came up with ideas for this one - it was heaps of fun ^_^

Oh goodness! Yaaaaay!! *jump jump* Awww, thanks for going through all the trouble to send out the prizes. Thanks for your story. I've never sent a package overseas before, so I had no idea about custom forms (although that makes sense) and all the possible issues that would arise. The snacks are a great idea! I love to eat, so that's great!

Yeah! More contests would be great! And of course, keep working on Melolune. Thank you Laura  :)
