SOTM 2010 - June (Neon Genesis Evangelion) - Entry Thread


!!!Welcome to the SOTM!!!




~Congratulations to Drake for winning the May Contest!~

The theme chosen for is - Neon Genesis Evangelion.
What is that? See here for details.





About the SOTM:
The Signature Of The Month contest is open to all members of the Animesuki Forums. The goal of the contest is to provide a fun and competitive way of showing off and improving the signatures and personal skills of contestants. The winner of each months contest is given the privilege of choosing the theme for the next month.

The contest begins on the first of each month and consists of roughly two weeks of entry creation/submission, one week of voting, and one week off. The entry and voting periods may be extended or shortened slightly as needed.



About the SOTM Theme:
Each month prospective contestants are given a theme to base their entries on. This theme is decided by the winner of the previous contest. The theme can be anything, as long as it does not break forum rules regarding inappropriate material. At the end of the month, voters choose which entries they liked best out of all submitted entries and a new winner is decided. Themes cannot be used twice in a row.



The Rules of the SOTM:

1. Contestants are allowed to create, work on, and submit their entry from the start of the contest until two weeks from the start date. This period of time is specified by the organizer every month. Once the entry period expires, all submitted entries are gathered up and sent to the Voting Thread.

2. Contestants must submit original works. This means you cannot simply cut a picture out, slap your name on it, and call it your own. Claiming someone else's work as your own is also not allowed. Anyone caught doing this will have their entries removed from the contest.

To further expand on this rule:
2A. Unless proven otherwise, all entries made by contestants are derivatives of works made by someone else. Thus, no claim of "ownership" shall be made in reference to the image(s) used in the signature entry.

2B. Misrepresenting someone else's signature work for your own is prohibited and will result in an immediate expulsion of the entry and disqualify the contestant from the current month's contest.

2C. In the spirit of originality, "crop" sigs are frowned upon, but not discouraged; however, the contest organizer can call upon all contestants to show the source of their entry(ies) at any time.

2D. Also in the spirit of originality, new signatures are encouraged. However, if you feel one of your older signatures is perfect for the theme and wish to enter it, you may. Just remember that the signature still has to follow the rules stated above.
3. Contestants are allowed to create as many entries as they wish, but are only allowed to enter one. To submit an entry officially, the contestant must mark the post in the Offical Entry Thread containing that entry with the words "Final Entry", or they can submit the signature to the contest organizer using the private message function.

4. Contestants who wish to keep their entries private until after the submission period can private message the contest organizer with their entry. The entry will not be displayed until submissions are closed, unless the contestant displays that entry publicly.

5. Entries must comply with Animesuki rules regarding signature size. This means each entry can be no larger than 500 x 160, and must be less than 50,000 bytes. They must also comply with forum decency rules. If you think your entry will be offensive or reported to the moderators, don't post it, even as a joke.



About the SOTM Entry Process:

Every month, a new entry thread is created. Each month's entry thread is a central spot meant to give contestants a chance to create and improve their entries as well as their skills, in addition to providing them a place to post their official submissions.
The thread is solely about helping contestants with entries, and as such these things will not be tolerated:
1. Nonconstructive and negative criticism (if you truly dislike something about an entry, be polite and helpful)

2. Comments, questions, or complaints about General SOTM affairs

3. Flaming, trolling, and other uncivil behavior that breaks Forum Rules
Anyone disrupting the thread will be asked to take it privately, to the SOTM Generic Discussion Thread, or if the offense is severe enough - reported to the moderators.




This Month's Entry Period::

This months entry period officially starts Friday, June 4th, 2010 and lasts until Friday, June 25th, 2010. Entries will be gathered and put up for voting on Sunday, June 27th, 2010. Voting will end on the following Sunday.

The due date ends at 11:59 (midnight basically) UTC/GMT. The polling will be up one day later after 11:59 (again, midnight). I will try to be as lenient as I can with last minute submissions but only slightly.

It is up to you as a contestant to know what your time zone is in relation to UTC/GMT. I cannot do this for you.

Here is a site that can help you figure that out: http://www.worldtimeserver.com/convert_time_in_UTC.aspx




Good luck to all contestants, and most importantly, have fun!!!

Nope, was a copy pasta to fix after Drake announced the theme so the Entry thread would be ready right away.

Thanks Elvenpath for updating the opening post/thread title. ^^

The lower part, just below Rei's cute butt (lol) the erase efect doesn't look very well, since tere's a light going behind Rei, one wonder "Were's that light?" Ate the lower part.

Final Entry
Just an observation, Rei's render looks to pale with colors almost killed with visualy, doesn't look very good.

It's a nice style of sig, I sense that the textn is a bit, just a bit hard to read mostly for the white areas at the bg.

The overall style's great but I'm finding it a bit too chaotic.

My first attempt:



C&C anyone?

Looks like I'm the only one not doing Rei right now

It's funny and colorfull, but perhaps there are too much colors on the lower part, I would dispose of the greens. :/

I dunno, the splatters don't look so bad, but the lens flare doesn't helps. :/

Thanks for the critique, Rick

I took out the lighting and reworked the border... Does it look any better?

Why do you have to be so good? The sparkle on her glasses is a little much though.

Mine (DBZ stlye for the lulz ):


I've gotten into a bad habit of working with my sigs at 2-3 times the size they'll be when finished. They tend not to scale too well.

lol thanks

The sparkle on her glasses is actually from the original render I had a go at editing it out but it looked odd so I tidied it up a bit and left it as is.

I really like yours and backround colours fit quite well, If I was to suggest anything it would be a boarder =]
