"Um, um. Yikes, I gotta see if this hasn't been done yet, but... the theme I'd like to see for next month would be something like "ULTIMATE POWER!"

When characters reach the zenith, or at least a certain point, of their power. (Ex: Super Sonic, Invincible Mario maybe, Any SSBB character who grabbed a Smash Orb, Esper Terra, Vincent Valentine + his transformations or whatever to name a few.)"



Welcome to the November 2008 edition of OCR's "official" Fan Art Competition (FAC).

The winner of the previous month gets to choose the following month's theme. Last month's winner, Nyuura, decided to go with ULTIMATE POWER for this month!

If your unfamiliar with the FAC, here is an FAQ thing.


What is the Fan Art Competition?

The Fan Art Competition is a monthly event where artists create some form of art based on a certain theme.

What is the theme?

The theme is decided by the winner of the previous months competition and must be video game related.

Who can submit art?


What are my restrictions?

You are allowed to submit one entry, but other than that there are no restrictions. There are no size, quality, image size restrictions.

Who decides the winner?

OCR of course; the whole community votes on it.

How does voting work?

On the day after the deadline I will make a post that displays all of the art submitted. Then users will be allowed to see every entry and decide which three they like the best, in order. After which they will send me a PM with their votes and maybe a few comments about the contest. They must do so in the announced voting period, or at least before I tally the votes. If not then they fail at voting.

When and how do we see the results?

After the voting period is over I will count the results and figure out which piece has the most points. When voting the voter sends in their top three favorite pieces. The one they like the most is worth 3 points, the second 2 points and the third 1 point.

If I enter the contest can I vote?

Yes, and voting for yourself is allowed if you REALLY want to.

Once the points have been counted I will send a happy PM to the winner that tells them that they one and explains how they are to choose the next months theme.

Rules and Regulations!

1) Any art submitted must be based off of the months theme.

2) No nudity.

3) Your entry must be created within the month. It cannot have been something you've created in the past or partially finished prior to the announcement of the theme.

4) All entries must be 100% your work. Simply altering something created by someone else may be cool, but is not allowed as an entry.

The Entries

Number One - Rambo

Number Two - DJ Mighty

Number Three - Linkjing Donuts

Number Four - relyCance

Number Five - Sindra

Number Six - Ninja-San

Number Seven - HideousBeing

Number Eight - bonzai

Number Nine - cobaltstarfire

Number Ten - Nyuura

Number Eleven - Txai


And The Winners Are!

First Place - Nyuura

Second Place - HideousBeing

Third Place - Linkjing Donuts

See you all next month! And by next month I mean in the thread that I'm about to make!

Man, I already did that in a previous competition...

Oh well, maybe I'll find time for this month.

What would you guys think if I made an offshoot of the competition, but for OffTopic? Same theme, same deadline, but for all entries that don't have to do with videogames. Would that be a good idea, or would it just drag away from the original competition?

Maybe every once in a while we could expand the theme outside VG. Say, every other month, just to spice things up. But we wouldn't have to cuz VG is such a huuuuuuuuuuuge pile of art material anyway. Maybe original art based on theme?
