2017 Megaman Summer Chill Contest Rules
Since this is like an important unofficial Rockman holiday
weekend…(June 8th and 9th are Rock Miyabi day and Rockman
day respectively ;D)…it seems like a good time to announce giving away some
goodies! While I haven’t held summer contests quite as often as V-Day, I think
this is still the 7th edition. Frequent enough.
Can’t beat the summer heat? Then let’s chill out with some cool, refreshing themes!
Just going to keep it simple and stick to the “I’ll buy what you want within a certain price range” for the top two winners of each category. We’ll have things like 4-Inch Nel Volnutt and Star Force, Nendoroid EXE and X, among other things coming out this summer. There’s also going to yet another game collection coming out, and I think that’d be a perfect 3rd place option. As always, the option of a cash prize through Paypal, especially in the case of international winners, is an option. This especially holds true due to region restrictions for games, if that’s what you’re aiming for. So, please make sure you have a valid Paypal account in order to receive your prize.
- One grand prize winner from each category will get a prize of their choice in the $75-100 range.
- A second place winner from each category will get a prize of their choice in the $40-50 range.
- Third place winners from each category will get a copy of the Mega Man Legacy Collection Numero Deux.
Since it went fine for Valentine’s Day, there will also be a prize raffle for this contest, too! Although it will just be for smaller trinkets this time. Sorry, no super rare, $100+ prizes here. The only requirement to have your name entered in the raffle is that you draw something! For each entry you submit, your name will be entered into the drawing. This time around, though, you will only have 2 categories to choose from, with a max of 2 entries you can submit. You are welcome to decline a chance at a specific raffle prize, if you are only interested in winning a certain one.
[1 Winner] A complete set of Bandai’s 66 Action Mini Figures
(Classic Rock, Red Rush Version Rock, X, Volnutt, EXE)
[2 Winners] 1 of these sets of Vol. 2 Dot Pixel Straps:
(Cut Man + Guts Man + Bomb Man + Blues + Forte) OR
(Elec Man + Ice Man + Fire Man, + Jump & Shoot Rockman)
[2 Winners] Your choice of 1 Funko Dorbz Megaman Character Figure:
(Rock, Rush, Blues or Wily)
[2 Winners] Your choice of 1 Bandai NXEdge Figure
(X or Zero)
So at least 13 chances to win something, both big and small!
2 categories, but I won’t be breaking it down by humor and talent this time. Rather, I’ll just judge on overall merit and effort in regards to following the content requirements. As usual, you are allowed to enter in each category, if you would like. If you place in one category, you will be automatically disqualified from the other, for reasons of fairness, and to give other people a chance to win a prize.
CATEGORY 1: Aqua Man’s Handsome Guy (and Gorgeous
Gal) Water Park
The most obvious way to cool down during the summer months is to submerge yourself in water. And while typically we always associate that with the beach, water parks can be just as fun!
The premise of this theme is like so: Flirtatious Robot Master Aqua Man has decided to team up with his fellow water-elemental characters to own and operate their own fun-in-the-sun, splish-splashy paradise. What better way to check out the bods of all the handsome guys and gorgeous girls in the Megaman Universe? What fun experiences, hijinks…or problematic encounters…will these liquid cool park workers run into, when your favorite Megaman characters spend the day at the park?!
The scene you want to portray is entirely up to you. How creative you are designing this water park scene - background, attractions, signs, mascots, etc. - will play some part in the judging. All characters are welcome in your art, but if you have anyone working/supervising in the park, they should be water-elemental characters.
- Fun at the waterpark - Waterslides, inner tubes, wading pools, beach balls, dancing showgirls made out of water, whatever fun things you can think of that fit a waterpark background setting, which is run by Aqua-element Megaman characters
- Just want to draw cute and sexy characters in swimsuits? This is for you!
CATEGORY 2: I’ll Make a Popsicle of You!
No, Frost Man! Not like that!
You know you want to bite down into a frosty Mega snack that has much better gumball eye placement than that Sonic novelty treat,
and you know you can do better!
For this category, your goal is to both design your own original Megaman popsicle AND to showcase it in some fun scene with other characters of your choice.
For the design aspect, you need to show detail in how the treat looks, down to the packaging it comes in - Is it a box you can find in the grocer’s freezer section, or a special wrapper? Something the Ice Cream Truck drives around town and sells down every street? What flavor(s) does it come in? Is there a variety of special shapes? Are there really bad Megaman jokes on the stick? From Flashfudgsicles to ChillPengpops, get creative!
Then draw a scene with any characters you want enjoying the freezy pops you’ve created. So I expect at least two separate files for this theme.
- Create your own original Megaman-themed popsicle! Put your designer’s hat on and spare no detail in it’s design.
- Also draw a scene with characters enjoying your creation. You can make it an ad. You can draw someone selling the treat to characters who want to eat this popsicle. However you want to portray it, but you must put in the effort to show off your popsicle product in it.
Only submit your own work, as usual. Any character, major or minor, from any series is allowed, as long as you meet the requirements in each category.
Entries do not need to be colored, but it is preferred.
Entries can either be e-mailed to me at rock2125[at]hotmail[dot]com, or you can just PM/note me a link to your pic.
DO NOT post your pics in this post, your tumblrs, Twitters, or dA galleries until the contest is over. This is the fairest way for competitive reasons. I prefer to keep them all secret until the deadline has passed.
I’ll edit a confirmed entry list in this post when I receive them. So you won’t be in the dark about whether or not I’ve received your entry.
The deadline for this contest will be Sunday, August 6th, by 11:59 PM CST. This currently gives you just under 2 months to come up with something.
Feel free to send me questions if you have any, either on this post or privately. Please join in, and good luck to everyone who enters!
