Black Rayquaza
11-02-2008, 01:54 AM
Well, it is that time for me to announce the start of the PC3 Season! The staff and I are very exciting to unveil what we've been preparing for for quite some time =] Without further ado, lets get this show on the road.

Tournament #1-PC3 Custom Banner Challenge (PE2K Site)
Challenge #1:Create a Pokemon Region themed custom banner. No made up regions will be allowed. So using Kanto, Jhoto, Hoenn or Sinnoh as your theme, create your custom banner. Try to use only the pokemon from your region to make the piece show your theme more. Be creative, and we hope to see great things from you =]
Due Date: Saturday November 8th 2008 10 PM EST.

Tournament #2-PC3 Custom Avatar Challenge (PE2K Site)
Challenge #1: Create a custom avatar with a gym leader theme =] You must pick one of the real Pokemon Gym Leaders and theme your avatar after that gym and it's leader. Avatars must be no larger than 125x125 but smaller sizes are allowed as well. Try to set your avatar apart from the rest!
Due Date: Saturday November 8th 2008 10 PM EST.

As updated on the main post, here are some basic rules to know for PC3.
1. All pieces submitted in PC3 will be pokemon related. If it isn't, you will get a 0 on the challenge, no matter how good it is.
2. Be Respectful to all competing artists and staff.
3. Any questions with rules or anything of that sort please PM me.
4. There is a strict rule regarding Deviant Art usage in Project Custom Tournaments. We need permission from the artist IN WRITING, PMd to us before you turn in your piece. Without it we will automatically give you a 0 for that challenge.
5. Enjoy the competition! More information on the rules and regulations will be given as the first challenges play out.

The Challenge Starts now....please get started. Remember incentives will be given if you get it in early =]

Thanks,

Words cannot express how truly sorry I am for how late these scorings are...it's been a rough, lazy, tired, busy, amazing week, but here I am with the scoring (finally!)

Remember Each Entry will be graded on a 100 Point Rubric. The rubric(s) are as follows:

Graphic Art Rubric (Banners, Avatars, Trainer Cards)
Style: x/20
Originality and use of color: x/20
Relation to the Challenge: x/20
General Effects: x/20
Effort: x/10
Overall: x/10
Total: x/100

If your entry does not fit the requirements of the challenge, that will be taken out of your overall score.

With that out of the way, lets get to the judging.

B-Ray's Scores-Custom Banner Challenge (Challenge #1)

Pikachou's Entry
http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i133/Waveslayer007/jhoto.png
Style: 18/20 Very well done retro theme here....great work.
Originality and use of color: 19/20 Very original and a wide range of colors as well.
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20 Represents the theme well.
General Effects: 16/20 You had major issues on the text.....for one hardly any of it is easy to read....and you spelled Jhoto wrong on the bottom xD Also, I would have put the Lugia image in the water and made the Totadile more Opaque....you can see his foot in the water and it annoys the heck out of me.
Effort: 8.5/10 Looks like you put some serious effort into this...good work.
Overall: 9/10
Total: 90.5/100

Ahlat's Entry
http://i35.tinypic.com/15rjyc1.png
Style: 17/20 A nice, clean banner showing the delights of Sinnoh...a little plain, but not too bad.
Originality and use of color: 17/20 Not very original, but you used a wide range of colors.
Relation to the Challenge: 19/20 I wish you would have done more with it, but it looks alright and does what it said to do.
General Effects: 16/20 The area around Infernape isn't clean......I dont know if that was purposely done, but it hurt the visual. Also, try to avoid putting the text RIGHT in front of the main part of the banner....you can make it smaller and stick it in a corner, that usually works well.
Effort: 7/10 Not too much went into this, but not a bad banner.
Overall: 7/10
Total: 83/100

eeveedude's Entry
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa229/1eeveedude3/Banners%20and%20Userbars/kanto-1.png
Style: 18.5/20 The banner just LOOKS good.....very awesome style put on this.
Originality and use of color: 20/20 What can I say, it looks great and I'm a sucker for two-tone =]
Relation to the Challenge: 19/20 Relates pretty well, I just wish it wasn't SO literal.
General Effects: 17/20 Simple idea, but executed well and it same out nice and clean. However, I must wonder why Venusaur isn't with Red when the background is Green......I would have done that and put Blastoise in the middle with some kind of blue circular portion of the banner....
Effort: 9/10 I can see some major improvements from the first draft....nice job.
Overall: 8.5/10
Total: 92/100

eeveedude's Entry
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa229/1eeveedude3/Avatars/Volkner.png
Style: 19/20 Good work using the background and the render and the sprites to bring it all into a general themed avatar.
Originality and use of color: 17.5/20 Stuck with the general scheme and it looks well....some more originality would have been nice.
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20 This avatar relates very well to the gym theme.
General Effects: 17.5/20 Looks good, but sprites on an avatar is quite weird.
Effort: 9/10 Good effort and good work with this =]
Overall: 8.5/10
Total: 93.5/100 +2 Added

Pikachou's Entry
http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i133/Waveslayer007/frameses.gif
Style: 13/20 This worries me.....I dont get how the background makes ANY sense to the point of this challenge.
Originality and use of color: 16/20 You used color, but not in the way I was hoping for.
Relation to the Challenge: 15/20 It relates but not very well.
General Effects: 16/20 Why is the Random Animating Starmie there and what is up with that background? The effect was very wrong here :(
Effort: 5/10 This looks like there wasn't any effort put into this.
Overall: 5/10
Total: 70/100

Ahlat's Entry
http://i33.tinypic.com/33m0ww8.png
Style: 18/20 Good use of images to bring everything together.....although I would have put the overworlds at lower opacity.
Originality and use of color: 17/20 Not a ton of color, but a good idea that was done nicely.
Relation to the Challenge: 19/20 It relates well enough =]
General Effects: 18/20 The idea of adding sprites to a Sugimori is unusual but it works alright in this. Not bad =]
Effort: 8.5/10 I can see some effort here....good work.
Overall: 8/10
Total: 88.5/100

11-13-2008, 04:09 AM
Sorry for the wait everyone.

Here are my scores:
--------------------------

BANNER CHALLENGE:

Pikachou

Style: 19/20. The backround is very well done, and very detailed. Great job.
Originality and use of color: 20/20. Copletely original, I have never seen anything like it.
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20.
General Effects: 17/20. Like B-Ray stated, the text is almost impossible to read.
Effort: 9/10. This must have taken awhile.
Overall: 9/10. I love it! It is so unique. You really pulled off the retro theme well.
Total: 94/100


Ahlat

Style: 16/20. I like it...the text is a little plaine though.
Originality and use of color: 15.5/20. The colors are great, but the Pokemon images you used or so over-used.
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20.
General Effects: 17/20. Nice job. I really don't like the thick black border though. =/
Effort: 6.5/10. Looks to basic. =/
Overall: 6.5/10. Ehh...nothing really stands out to me.
Total: 81.5/100


eeveedude

Style: 19/20. The whole banner has a very cool style about it. Nice job.
Originality and use of color: 18/20. The color choices are great, especially around the text.
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20.
General Effects: 17.5/20. The trainer images are to fuzzy...
Effort: 9.5/10. I see alot of effort in this.
Overall: 9/10. The whole thing blends so well, I love it. Very well done.
Total: 93/100

==================================================

AVATAR CHALLENGE:

eeveedude

Style: 18/20. The backround is a great fit with the trainer, however, I really don't like to see sprites mixed in without a sprited backround.
Originality and use of color: 16/20. Nothing to original.....
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20.
General Effects: 17/20. The backround has a good effect, but the sprites kinda kill it. =/
Effort: 8.5/10.
Overall: 8/10. I do like it, but I wish you had added some text, instead of sprites.
Total: 87.5/100


Pikachou's

Style: 10/20. This looks very random... and the backround is just the render effect on P.net...
Originality and use of color: 13/20. To many random colors flying around.
Relation to the Challenge: 15/20. You got the general idea, but did not exacute it well.
General Effects: 15.5/20. Like B-Ray pointed out, the dancing Starmie does not fit at all.
Effort: 5.5/10. It looks like it was a last minute entry...
Overall: 5/10. It looked like a bunch of ideas thrown together...and it did not work out well.
Total: 64/100


Ahlat's Entry

Style: 17/20. Very cool, but the sprites overpower the main image....
Originality and use of color: 17/20. With the exception of the sprites, everything blends very well.
Relation to the Challenge: 20/20.
General Effects: 16/20. The sprites kill it.
Effort: 8.5/10.
Overall: 7.5/10. I really like it...but I just hate seeing sprites on avatars.
Total: 86/100

Please read better BEFORE trying to belittle the competition....I know how to rate art, I've been doing this for quite awhile xD

Remember the winner is not decided until ALL of the scores are in for ALL THREE Challenges....then an average score will be made, and winners will be decided that way, so if you bombed this first entry, get back on the train and work harder next challenge!

The Next Challenge as well as Tournament #3 will be announced when Seawolf scores.
