The Unofficial OCReMix Album Art Competition
Well what's the deal?
Glad you asked! The question has come up time and time again: Does anyone have any OCReMix album art they use for their MP3 player? Often people post alittle something they made themselves in paint, or by cropping the logo, and sometimes people slap something in there on the spot. Now I know there's a metric ton of really talent artists here on the site, and it's time we all sat down and actually made some nice stuff.
The idea is to make an album art image for OCR. Something between 1000x1000 - 300x300, in PNG format.
Who is eligible?!
Everyone is free to enter* and can submit as many entries as they like, as long as they are recieved before the deadline.
You can use any which what tools to make your album art. Corel Paint, Photoshop, MS Paint, Paintshop Pro, Maya, I really don't care, as long as it falls under resolution guidelines.
Two things that'll help you out a lot:
- Photoshop users: You can download a PSD with a high-resolution vector of the logo, along with a few other controller options (such as Dual Shock, Genesis, & Zapper) [Filesize = approx 15MBs] (if anyone can/wants to convert this file for use in PSP too, that'd be great.)
- The font used in the OverClocked ReMix logo is call 'Iomonoid" and can be downloaded for FREE @ dafont.com
What should my album art have?
Anything. It can really have anything you want on it (that's not blaintantly offense). I just include the logo and the font for anyone who wants to use them. You are in no way bound to including either, but remember you ARE be judged by your peers and that including or excluding such things could effect your chance of winning.
Your album art can be hand drawn, painted, digitally recreated, photo-manipulated, photography, abstract, pixelart, minimalistic, aqua, aero, I reallyyy don't care. As long as it's an original piece of work and has "OverClocked ReMix", or something similiar, somewhere on it.
Submissions, Deadline, Voting, ETC
I'm setting the deadline for this competition to VALENTINE'S DAY. That means I want submissions in by Febuary 14, 2007 00:00 EST.
Submissions will be sent via email to sgtrama [at] thasauce.net, with your albumart ATTACHED TO THE EMAIl, and any information I'll need to know to actually be able to identify you.
The voting period will last exactly 2 weeks after the deadline, and will be decided by popular vote via PMing me here.
Guidelines for this thread
There a few things I'd like to ask people do consider when posting in this thread out of common courtesy:
- You are free, and encouraged, to post your WIPs here, but I'd appreciate it that if your image is more than 500x500 pixels, if you would use a thumbnail image.
- When quoting someone else's post that contains an image, PLEASE change the IMG tag to a URL tag. It takes a whole 3 seconds
You are encouraged to share your source images (PSDs, etc) so that other can use your version of the logos, etc, for other things in the future like wallpapers, winamp skins, forum skins, blah dee blah. At some point I would like an organize a sort of OverClocked ReMix Artist's Guild where we can compair and share images and references so we can all make all kinds of cool OCR stuff with easy.
