Aero Art Contest!
« 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 reached 10,000 subscribers!



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:
  • You must submit your art no later than November 12th, 2011 to supershigi@gmail.com with the title "Aero Art Conest."
  • You must be subscribed to both the supershigi and shigiteatime youtube channels.
  • Make sure to keep it clean: no profanity, graphic violence, pornographic content, etc.
  • Yes, staff can enter (barring the obvious).

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:
  • A special limited edition "Game of the Year" boxed version of Plants vs. Zombies (complete with a zombie figurine) signed by members of the Plants vs. Zombies team
  • Free codes to download both the Plants vs. Zombies and Melolune soundtracks, as well as a free code to download Melolune when it's released.
  • A fun mystery assortment of fun Plants vs. Zombies schwag!

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, 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!

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.

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

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 ^_^

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:

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.

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.....
Do I not look dapper in my leeble hat?
