Lirael, maybe you could keep us up to date on who's submitted their entries so far. I'm anxious to see who's going to die to Inhert in the opening round.

can you change the "Nature" theme of the second round to something else? I remember the SOTW with that same theme being really unpopular :?

I agree with xylev, the second round theme needs to be something completely different. It should be something where we can at least make a small connection to video games or Final Fantasy, being on an FF website and all. Maybe something like "yellow & green color theme" or "vectorized"--nothing too subject specific, but rather a focus on technique. There's too few of those going around. That way, we can really see who deserves to move on by stretching their skills to their artistic limits, avoiding the filter spamming that usually rules graphics competitions.

Submitted entries, in order.

1. Xiitharn (you're safest! tongue.gif)
2. Jayhawk
3. Inhert
4. andtzej
5. -josh-
6.
7.

's all so far.

And as for changing it from nature, I guess I'll think of something. I just remember seeing entries for nature on another Final Fantasy forum and them being really nice. I don't think it needs to be game-specific...Will change round 2 within the course of the next few days. And if no one else enters, I may have to make one battle a three-person battle. >.< Best two will go forward.

maybe the second round could to be game related?

so fans of SOTC, say, could do a splash of that.

SOTC? tongue.gif

I was thinking war. I mean, there are a few games, such as Shadow Hearts, and animes, such as She: The Ultimate Weapon, which could be used there. How does that sound?

I'm just thinking gaming is too broad, and the rounds are meant to get more difficult. tongue.gif

SOTC = Shadow of The Colossus

I'm not really bothered about the theme, anything game-wise sounds fine. Maybe "Conflict" instead of war? Idk.

...and you could be specific on the graphical style, like Jayhawk suggested, adding to the difficulty.

A war or conflict theme sounds good, since its very much possible to link it to a video game. I just think that games should always be incorporated into the themes somehow, being that it's likely the one subject we all share interest in. Of course, the piece doesn't have to be related to games (you can do a WWII piece or something if you so wish), but at least the option is still open.

Being the second round, there should also be some kind of technique-related criteria in place (as I've mentioned before). Maybe you can ponder it while the first round is in play and reveal it when the second round is ready, to prevent excess tutorial usage until then wink.gif.

And we really need to find one more person to fill in the final spot, otherwise someone's going to have an easy route to the second round.

So the voting starts tomorrow, am I correct?

The time is ticking for the last two to get their entries in! Who will be against Inhert? tongue.gif Only time will tell. Remember to get them to me quick, or you might be the one!! tongue.gif

Voting was meant to start today. There will be a three way battle where two people go through, unless we can get someone else in. I'd submit a sig were it not unfair.

And conflict sounds good. All else will be revealed later. wink.gif

So are the rest of the match-ups ready?

Speaking of which, I think Inhert and the two last people to submit should be in the 3-way match. Inhert is generally regarded as the "#1 seed" in this tournament, so ideally he should get the easiest path to the second round. And whoever also moves on in that 3-way would have to face him again in the second round, so they're not getting an easy ride either. That way, the rest of the matches can already be set, regardless of who submits last, and we can get voting underway.

Sounds good?

Vossler simply hasn't contacted me regarding his sig. If he doesn't, I'll just have to let you two battle, but with you both going through. :/

well, the deadline was wednesday, and it is now saturday, so i think it would be safe to assume that he is disqualified.

activeness is needed if you want to be part of a competition.
