SOTM 2009 - April (Triple Treat!) - Entry Thread


!!!Welcome to the SOTM!!!




~Congratulations to Riker, Marina, and Solace for winning the March Contest!~

The theme chosen for April is - Triple Treat!.
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 Wednesday, April 1st, 2009 and lasts until Friday, April 24th, 2009. Entries will be gathered and put up for voting on Sunday, April 26th, 2009. 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!!!

Not always (I would call the Gallic War of Ceasar as a cute text or than the use of 3th person make it cuter).

woot 1st entry... I mean, it's not an entry yet... just to check if it fits the theme and what should be changed...

It's for the tough girl theme... although I think this is more bloody/ scary than actually tough but yeah...



edit: I have a question: does milk count as food?

I do believe it does, as long it's edible, more then once

EDIT.



My first vocaloid signature. The text is a pun of ekho's text from SOTM (Space). Going to change it if he has any objections

~ C&C is extremely appreciated

hmm, I'm sorry but which of the themes are these on? because I don't see food or plushies and the girl is too cute to be tough they're cute though... but I don't see how they fit the theme

edit: oh, wait, is she eating books? O_o

@Urei - ohhh love the dark vibes from hatsune <3 hmm, but something's off on that sig I can't quite put my finger on it... oh wait I think I know - it looks 'dirty'... - no idea how to say this xD did you understand at least?

Just a test to see what to do with the picture...


Yeah, it sucks, but I won't use it as a final entry anyway.

@Urei: The text seems too simple for the font you're using, dunno if you get me, but maybe another simpler font would look better IMO.

Ganbaru, it looks like you are going with a "food for thought" type thing? The theme is a little more literal than that.

And yes, milk is food.

Well the lights source doesn't helps a lot, makes the render looks to bright

The render is a bit hard to doferenciate from the bg

Looks really cute, and the text is nice

@ganbaru: As an advice, using more than 2 renders makes the sig unfocused

Tea, soda, coffee, milkshakes, sports drinks, water....if it's not poison, it passes as food.

We're only lumping eating and drinking together as "food" because it's easier than trying to specify specific types of eat or drink that are ok. As long as it's demonstrated as something you typically associate with the act of enjoying a meal (cooking, ingesting, serving, etc.), it's fine.

As always of course, everyone feel free to ask if unsure about what is ok.

oh god your sig made me laugh so hard

it's brilliant - the idea that is... as for the sig itself, I think the render sticks out too much from the background...


decided to do a 2nd siggy - food this time
