Hello guys, before Birth by Sleep comes out, the site staff and I thought we would start an old classic: the boxart contest.

GENERAL INFO

In the boxart contest, you will have to make the game box of Birth By Sleep. Any other box related to Days, etc, will be trashed.
You have to be as creative as possible with this, you cannot use repeated KH box logo styles (you can make something similar, however).

The contest will be held in two divisions. Traditional and Digital. Meaning, you can make a boxart by drawing it or making it in Photoshop/GIMP/whatever. If you decide to make it by drawing, either scan it in or take a high quality photo. There will be one winner only.

JUDGING

Judging will be based on a few things. Criteria included in judging includes originality, effort, creativity, design, use of tools, use of imagination, appeal, and so forth. The most important, however, is creativity. Extra points if it's more creative.

RULES

1) No ripping We will look at all entries carefully, and see if they have been ripped. If you do rip, you'll be banned. Simple.

2) Collaboration Collaborating is fine, but you guys must both take credit for the work. You'll also have to split the prize if you win.

3) Be creative Be as creative as possible with this. We want to see what you can do.

4) Keep it PG-13 No explicit material of any kind on the boxart. Meaning, no curse words, hentai/porn/yaoi/whatever.

(To be added)

PRIZES

Your choice of a Sora, Roxas, Riku, Cloud or Kairi mascot strap.

Prizes could change.

QUICK FAQ

Can I make my own characters on the box?
You cannot make your own characters, but you can draw the characters in whichever style you want.

What happens if someone rips a design?
They'll have a 1 month or permanent ban.

Can prizes be shipped to international countries?
Sure.

How many entries can I submit?
One and only one. Any extras will be ignored.

Can I use KH art/logos in my boxart?
For the people who are making it digitally, you can use characters. For traditional makers, you have to draw the characters/design yourself. You can use the BBS logo, or you can make one yourself. Up to you.

When will the winner of the 358/2 Days contest be announced?
We have already notified the winner and are sending them their prize. If you haven't been notified, you didn't win.

What's 'ripping'?
Stealing another person's work and claiming it as your own. This does not mean KH renders/logos.

OTHER INFO

The due date for this is January 9th, 2010. Winners will be announced by around late January or so.

You can send your entries via PM to KHIContests
If you have anymore questions, please post in the thread.​

By traditional you mean hand-drawn right? And digital is with editing program? What if it's a combination of both? It can go in either category? Or whichever one it applies to more?

Yes.

It can be a combination. And yes, we'll choose the correct category.

Kostas, by drawing your own characters he means you drawing Terra and not you using a picture of Terra. If you make it digitally, though, you can use a picture of him. Or at least that's what I understood.

I'm really excited for this :V
I don't plan on winning or anything, though. The winner will probably be some epic artist that can copy Nomura's style perfectly and digitally color everything beautifully :X
I'm trying my best, though!

You don't have to draw two pages, but if you want to. And Blade summed up your other question.

This is the potential I want to see here. Good luck to you.

No, doing that is fine, just don't copy his boxart style completely.

As long as they're both official pictures, or you've drawn them yourself, it's fine.

Does it matter how large the picture we draw is?

I can do adorable stick figure drawings right? I would so do this contest if I could draw full bodies. I can only do floating heads and really awesome looking eyes.
