#16

Introduction

Weekly Art Challenge is a recurring event for the Art, Literature and Music forum wherein there is a new challenge for artists every week. The goal of the event is to encourage art and going outside the box by imposing interesting challenges and limitations. After a week, a poll will be up for everyone to vote to select the best entry. The winner with the most votes will receive a pretty little badge for bragging rights.

Also, please be sure to check out the previous challenge's thread.



Rules

  • A new challenge/theme will be posted up in a new thread every week.
  • Participants are to follow the rules imposed by the challenge/theme. Any questions may be asked. However, I reserve the right to disqualify any entries that I feel do not meet the criterion.
  • A challenge lasts for approximately a week. Deadline for all Weekly Challenges is strictly at 12:00AM, GMT +0, on Monday.
  • On the week after, a poll will be up in the same thread. Only one entry will win. In the case where there are more than one winning entry with equal votes, all winning entries will be rewarded.
  • Poll for voting will be available from the submission deadline to Saturday, when the winner will be announced.
  • The winner gets to call the theme/challenge for the following week. If the winner does not wish to do so, then I will come up with one.
  • All forms of art are welcome.
  • No need to register. Just start working on your entry right away if you've decided to participate.
  • Post your entries in this thread. WIPs are encouraged, but please explicitly specify your final submission.
  • There is absolutely no measurements coming from us on the completion of a piece. Whether a piece is complete for final submission or not, is entirely your own call. So don't be discouraged if you think you can only afford to doodle a couple lines. Anything is fine.
  • Entries must be done completely from scratch by their respective participants. This means no pre-existing stock materials are allowed, regardless of the degree to which they have been altered. Whoever is caught intentionally violating this rule will be subject to the punishment stated in our Forum Rules regarding Credit Theft.
  • Entries must be done within the week after the challenge has been issued. No previously done work is allowed. Entries violating this rule may be automatically disqualified without prior notice.


This week's Challenge

Remake something either of yours or from the XP/VX/VXA RTP in a sci-fi inspired/futuristic setting.

  • Deadline: 12:00AM (GMT +0) on Monday, April 28th, 2014.
  • Poll for voting will be available from the submission deadline to Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.
  • Any questions may be asked here.
  • All forms of art are welcome.
  • Post your entries in this thread. WIPs are encouraged, but please explicitly specify your final submission.


And that is it. Have fun!

This one would definitely be more challenging for me. Hmm. Full body suits and visors anyone? I'll see what I can doodle up.

Couldn't the music people take a theme from one of the RTPs and tweak it to be scifi? It's not exactly the same but I think it should count.

That's essentially what I did last week though it was a theme for one of my characters instead of RTP. Took it from orchestral to pop. I could do the same thing again but from whatever to techno/ambient. Haha, I might but probably for a different character of mine, this time.

But I may try on next challenge, good luck everyone!

When I think of future, I think of robots



EDIT: Made with MS PAINT, no stock, no pallets, no nothing, blank white.  Took me 2 hours to do the sprite sheet, this is 1 of 12 sprites on it.

Why are all the themes, Draw something,... we have writers and musicians here too.  Can we make them more vague, like, Future theme, Sci Fi theme, zombie theme etc...

That's because the Weekly Art Challenge is aimed to provide interesting challenges and themes for people (mostly art people, unfortunately). And the themes wouldn't be as fun and challenging if they were universal. Sometimes they just have to be specific and exclusive to be interesting, and I think this is one of those. That said though, we do have universal themes every now and then.

And are you sure that's something from the RTP or from your own stuff?

It's a character that is now in a RPG VX ACE game that I am making.  So it falls into my own stuff category.

Might I suggest that the wording has a large effect on the perception of the challenge? The topic could be, "Using a character, your own or RTP, place them in a sci fi/futuristic setting." It more or less means the same thing as, "Draw a character, either yours or RTP, in a sci fi/futuristic outfit"  but removing the word 'draw' instantly opens up the topic to writers without losing much specification in the title. In fact calling for a setting I feel even gives more range and opportunity than an outfit. Remember that being too specific works against creativity. Not saying that will be a problem this week but I digress.

I don't disagree with specific subjects but I don't think any other medium should be alienated because of majority rule. True, the title said 'draw' last week and I was still able to come up with music (I'm ornery), but plenty of people will feel turned away or think their medium is not a valid entry. 

TL; DR  You can get specific but the wording of the subject is problematic

Turns out 4 layers is A LOT.
I noticed random Japanese dialogue in the FF7 remake while playing in English. More than once. Just now I saved a vid where Tifa spoke Japanese after a battle. We all make mistakes lol, this is kinda funny though
I wonder if the new RPG Maker will have a built-in ABS for maps or a light effect system plugin out of the box.
Not having false expectations, but if it has both, then wow. I am gonna party all night. Nah I lie. I will party all night anyway, just searching for a good excuse. :stickytongue:
And BAM!, the moment you do understand Python setters by studying JS prototypes. That's called SERENDIPITY, coming with something when you was searching for something else. From "The three Princes of Serendib", a persian novel.
The sinking feeling when you realize your grandmother probably isn't long for this world, and the frustration when you know that this pandemic will take her away...not because she has Covid, but because no doctor is willing to see a patient to even run simple diagnostics anymore if one of her symptoms happens to be a recurring fever, even if her primary care physician gives her the test and it comes back negative.
