Favorite Moments in Three Colors

For this contest you'll be taking on the very simple task of depicting one of your favorite Metroid moments. But, as a twist you're only allowed to use three colors as voted on by the members (thanks for choosing the more difficult ones, guys!). Read on for more details!




- Depict any of your favorite moments in a Metroid game. This can be something as simple as experiencing rain on your visor for the first time in Metroid Prime to battling your favorite boss.

- You are only allowed to use the following colors:

:bulletblue: ORANGE
:bulletblue: GREEN
:bulletblue: PINK
:bulletblue: Black, but only for the outline of your drawing if you choose to ink/pencil that way.

- You can use any shades of those colors

- Your background must be filled as well. You can't leave it white or black.

- Here are some examples of the colors you're allowed to use:




- You're not allowed to mix your colors to make other colors.

- ALL THREE colors must be included. You can use them as much or as sparingly as you want, but we have to be able to see all three.

- If you accidentally mix some of your colors, don't sweat it. As long as it's a small percentage of error we'll let it go. We aren't mean.

- You can draw in any style, any medium. Fan fictions are also allowed.

- For Fictions: For fiction writers: You must use all three colors in your fiction as describing words, and you're not allowed to mention any other colors. Make significance of these colors in your fiction.

- Your entry must be one made for this contest. No old deviations are allowed. No deviations made before [04-09-14] will be accepted.

- NO tracing, and TRY NOT TO copy. I've seen like, every Metroid art out there, and if you trace, your entry will not be allowed. And anyway, if you copy you're not going to win. Nobody ever votes for a trace.

- NO smudging of official art to make it look painted. Just... don't use official art, please. You have artistic minds, you can do it!

- No fan pairings.

- You may have up to three entries.

- Keep it PG13. Nothing vulgar will be allowed (including fetishes). No extreme gore. No nipples poking through clothing, no boobs the size of Texas. You get the picture. Be respectful. The word you should have in mind for Samus is "Role Model".

- When your entry is done, submit it to our Contest 15 - Favorite Moments in 3 colors folder in the gallery! And also comment with a link to it in this blog. That way if you accidentally submitted it to the wrong folder, we can still catch it and put it in the right one.



The winners of the contest will be determined by a panel of judges.

Also, if you're going to be a judge, you're still allowed to make an entry, but of course, you will not be up for winning.

Judges:

:iconzimeta: :iconratscout: :iconmistytang:

To Gain Favor with the Judges:

[X] Effort. It's REALLY easy to tell when someone puts a lot of effort into their work.

[X] Originality - Be creative and think outside the box.

[X] Appeal - don't just draw people standing around doing nothing. Make a scene! Put in some interaction. Make it fun for us to look at.

After the backlash against Other M I really thought Nintendo would know better. I just hope there is more backlash against this.
