The list is on the first page i only quoted it so its not my doing.

Quote:
A uniform
A weapon that a soldier would use (tank, airplane, cannon, that kind of thing)
A Mech
A battlefield (fighting, combat, warzone)
Characters with military parts (Think Strike Witches or other cybernetic styled characters)
Special Forces characters (commandos, swat, sniper)
The bit in bold is pretty self explanatory.

Ooh, I like it. It's a bit over the size limit though, it has to be under 50,000 bytes (you're at 50,952).

Alright I see where this is going.

For those still confused, we're gonna tweak the theme a bit. From now on, center your entries around the idea that military = war.

I know themes like this aren't popular, because they aren't cute or romantic or easy to put popular characters in. But that's the point of contests like these, to try your hand at something that's outside of the comfort zone. Be it in theme, design, personal skill, you name it, the contest is meant to give you something different, to take a shot at something you normally just don't do.

You don't see me crafting an entry yet. Truth is, I'm just as stumped as many of you are. I'm having problems finding good stock, I have no idea how I'll arrange it, heck I really have no concept at all. But I will turn an entry in, no matter how crappy it turns out. I'll do it because I've never really done it before, and I'll learn something from it.

Plus, I get to see how others interpret the theme. That's pretty fun too. ^^

So, long story short, I'll be a little more clear.

When I created that list, I was trying to present the idea of military using concepts, a "when you think military think of these things" approach. I didn't want this to be a "chick with guns" theme or something similar. Try to look at the theme in more real world terms, so when people look at the entry it's apparent right off the bat that it's war.

Unless people know who KOS-MOS is, they will not see war or army or military, they'll see a good looking girl with a gun. There's a million images like this, from Gunslinger Girl to Black Lagoon.

Think about your own country, what is your military like? How would you recognize the difference between your police and your army? What would that army look like if it was in a different time, or with different technology? How would you illustrate that to people while still showing that it's an army?

The same goes with technology. Part of the reasons that Mecha work for this theme is because there are no uses for something like a Gundam outside of an army. Maybe construction equipment, but to most people, giant robots fight. It's as easily recognizable as a jet fighter or a tank.

I guess I'm starting to ramble a bit here but I hope I'm getting some points across.

Certainly it's going to be full of mecha this month. As already stated, it's a real pain to find some decent material to work with (concerning the military theme).

Final Entry

Third and quite possibly final revision since I'm just running into a brick wall with regards to inspiration...





As always, C&C is helpful...

Hmm, well the lasers/attacky thingys don't look that good. Hmm, its like they are too big and fuzzy looking? I'm not really sure how to explain it. Maybe tone the contrast down.

Like markesellus mentioned, the projectiles look odd. Make it less fuzzy and more glowy.

Random image I googled:

How does this fit with the theme?



I was thinking of maybe adding some sort of symbol on his back/sleeve, since it doesn't look like a uniform anymore. C&C?

Wow, cool as always Kai. The symbol would be a nice touch though it is quite military already.

Do you mean the black thing on the top? Because that's part of the original picture. >_<

Will work more on smoke. Figures that I can't do much without ruining my flashes. Back to frame one

Thank you. I will try to add another render in it. And maybe to do a different background.

For now, here an AS safe version
