This past tuesday, we at the Metroid Database unveiled our latest annual contest, the Stylized Metroid Series Contest!Click here for the official page
1.) Create a piece of artwork depicting the Metroid series in a new and interesting way, specifically different from depictions offered in official media of the series.
2.) Take a photograph if physical or submit a high-quality digital version into the email address below by 12/31/2012.
3.) File should be in a standard PC image format: .jpg, .png, .bmp, .tif, etc. Please do not send files over 10MB.
4.) No manipulation of pre-existing artwork. You can use it for reference/inspiration, but not directly used in your entry.
5.) Please, no food-based entries.
The contest will be scored based on the following categories:
Originality – How distant is your style from what we've seen already in dozens of fan art before this?
Authenticity – If using a historical style, how well does your piece embrace the spirit of that art style?
Craftsmanship – How well was the work produced?
Funfactor – How funny, cool, or creepy is your style?
Metroidness – How much does it feel like the spirit of Metroid?
Check out the official page
for a list of all the prizes we are offering.
