IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO RETRIEVE THE PRIZES YOU MUST GIVE US A LEGIT ADDRESS TO MAIL THE CAP AND MONEY IN! IF YOU WANT THE MONEY TO BE GIVEN TO YOU VIA PAYPAL YOU MUST GIVE YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT NAME AND EMAIL SO THAT THE MONEY CAN BE TRANSFERED TO YOU!


September 2nd
ITS OVER! We are now judging the submissions! We are not accepting any more entries!
I'm disappointed to announce there's a total of six submissions. Its a good thing I gave you lazy bums a whole year amirite.
So me and Eric are going to be scrutinizing and analyzing and dissecting and figuring and discussing and calculating and solving and combobulating all of your... effort...
GOOD LUCK PARTICIPANTS!


(horizontal break would go here, fuck html)

Hello simpletons, are you ready for your first ever challenge?

Because its the first, this is somewhat for testing purposes and to see how these events will work for Spritas. Don't let me down guys.


Challenge #1
The Long Drop

Mario jumps a long way down!

In this challenge, you must feature Mario starting from a very high place, like a canyon, or a skyscraper, or anything you can think of. At the start of the animation, Mario jumps from this height and begins descending to the ground below. Along the way, anything can happen. He can do acrobats, interact with whatever things you put in the air, or even do random things. But there are a few golden rules:

-Nothing must slow him down a lot. He cannot freeze in midair nor land on anything in between.
-The scenery must not change into something different. If he jumps from a tall building down into a city, it must stay that way. The scenery can obviously move however you need it to.
-He must start as Mario and end as Mario. Whatever happens to him between start and finish is up to you.

Also in the rules:
-Your animation must be at least 10 seconds and no longer than 30 seconds.
-Nothing related to Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, or Draglade is allowed (for good reasons). These submissions will be disqualified.
-No Linkin Park music. I swear to god.
-Obvious SMBZ ripoffs will also be disqualified.


Points will be awarded based upon:
-Animation quality
-Sprites quality
-Creativity
-Timing and visual appeal
-Applying good movement physics

The more custom/edited sprite content involved will also improve your score. We will be judging much more on effort than the actual visual quality of your sprites, so don't be scared if it doesn't look very good.

Points may be deducted if:
-There are obvious ripoffs of other animations
-No effort in choosing fitting sprites, or if you choose very overused sprites. The version of Mario you use (M&L, SMW, SMB3, etc) is exempt from this rule.

If you ignored or didn't follow any of these guidelines you may lose a few points. Too much of this or breaking the golden rules will just disqualify your work.


Document Specs:
BG Color: Any
Canvas Size: Any
FPS: Any from 20 to 30

Deadline: Its over.


The winner of this competition will receive:

30 US Dollars

AND

This stylish Mario cap! (big round puffy bunny not included)
The Long Drop (JUDGING UNDERWAY) Cimg0355r

Ok noobians...
Get ready.

Thanks for the information. I did find that important, but I will post my animation in my next post in here. This can't become a discussion, right?

Dude, Me and lange wont be in the challenge. It's just up to the common people.
Besides, we're not looking for just well animated, we're looking for creativity and effort the most.

You can get the money physically with the hat (the paypal is optional if it's what you prefer)

You know I had the same thought for a minute. I just came up with an idea for my animation.

Wow, I also have to say that the idea for animating is... damn.

Spoiler:
You mean the parts where you were so excited and all noob-like about it and how you had thoughts that you were going to make the best animations ever but then realise that your animation sucks because pivot lacks the componets any animation program haves and that your anims in that program sucks?

In other words, we will judge your submission and give it a score, but you won't place with the other competitors, so even if you got the highest score, only the author with the participating 1st place submission will win the prizes.
