View Full Version : Set Symbol Contest

August 31st, 2005, 1:30 AM

Well, I'm very bad at doing Set Symbols, as you can see on my EX: Trainers cards (even though I like that one) and I need a Set Symbol for my new, paralel to EX: Trainers, set: EX: Revolutions (which, as the other one, hasn't got a set list defined).

So, if I need a new symbol, and I'm sure it would be cool to have others for other kinds of sets, why not open a new contest, just to test peoples qualities.

- datriot
- Geno
- M4rtyn

Each contestant will only many opportunities, though he can change one of his/her symbols any time he/she wants. The contestant will not have to specify if the symbol will be for EX: Revolutions or for another set (or kind of). All the symbol have to fill this prescriptions: Advance HL-on proportions (19x11-13 px), black and white.

The winner will get a special card made for him (not-request, more than that, 'cause in requests cards can't say take all prizes or stuff) and, if, the symbol is for me, have the symbol on my new cards.

The contest is over! Here are the results:
1: Cascade: 1 of them: 10/10 (only-one score)
2: vulpi: 1 of them: 9/10 (only-one score)
3: Shinro: 6 of them: 8/10 (medium score)
4: Sliph: 1 of them: 7,8/10 (only-one score)
5: Geno: 10 of them: 7,7/10 (medium score)

PS: I would thank to not post about wil enter soon or what a good idea thingies, 'cause that is kinda SPAM!

August 31st, 2005, 1:33 AM
I think so! But you can enter, too!

August 31st, 2005, 1:38 AM
ah, that's good.*goes to make a set symbol*

August 31st, 2005, 1:55 AM
Ok, that was SPAMmy, but I think it isn't harmful!

August 31st, 2005, 9:20 AM
Hey, could I be a judge? Also, here is my entry.

August 31st, 2005, 10:43 AM
Hey, I quite like that! I think that deserves a 9/10!:)

August 31st, 2005, 11:56 AM
It's almost like EX:FRLG's Symbol, it's too big and it's a bit bad drawn.


August 31st, 2005, 3:19 PM
I made that in 30 seconds and just for laughs. I will make a better one later. Anyway, thanks for making me a judge!

Sorry to double post, but here are some more symbols. (Sorry if they are too small.)

August 31st, 2005, 11:57 PM
I quite like the flag one and the keyhole one is also pretty good, overall I would give theis 8/10.:)

I also think those are good ideas for set symbols!

Made in paint, right? Paint is very good for this, 'cause the pixel work of paint is much easier than others.

Rate for each one:
- 7/10 a bit odd and and wrong pixelated;
- 9/10, very well drawn and pixelated, also very usefull in EX: Revolutions;
- 8,5/10, wierd but good;
- 9/10, usefull in some sets and stuff and also very good;
- 8,5/10, wierd but good;
- 8,5/10, good, also suitable for EX: Revolutions;
- 7,8/10, wrong pixelated but good drawing;
- 9/10, like it, very good, suitable for VS sets.

Final rate: 8/10

ps: Why don't you try something new like mine: I'll describe it:
this represend the moon spinning around earth, which, is a revolution! Ahhhh :) see, and look, woah, it goes outside the box too :) isn't that COOL!:

here it is: http://www.cascade.tardmonkey.org/JUNJKOU_FEDZINSKI.jpg

(ps, for this one, drag it into Adobe Photoshop for the interlanced effect!

No, you can do as many as you want, but only one rating, that is the final and universal!

I really love that symbol, maybe I'll use it, it's the best chance until now!

Cascade Of The Sky
September 2nd, 2005, 8:22 PM
so, whats the rating? /10???

September 2nd, 2005, 8:24 PM
Me likes a lot! 11/10! One thing though, that symbol seems like it would be better for a promotional set or something of the sort, no offense. It just seems like that because it is so big.

Judges: I am just posting ideas and stuff that pops ito my head, so you don't need to give me a score anymore.

Theres my symbols what do ya think???

September 3rd, 2005, 12:46 AM
Cascade - Clever, i likes 9/10
shinro - hmm nice but very unclear 8/10

September 3rd, 2005, 12:55 AM
hey I love that symbol Cascade of the Sky, 9/10!
For the new set symbol you made Geno, I'd give it 7/10, good idea, but just looks to simple.

September 3rd, 2005, 4:49 AM
Cascade: The rating is 10/10, since it's the best symbol here. About being too big, I'll reduce it if it doesn't fit well.

Geno: 7,5/10, I like it, it gives a sence of time, maybe a set based on Celebi?
The score won't get betta 'cause of this last add.

Shinro: Not very good pixelated but very well drawn. 8/10 for all.

September 3rd, 2005, 9:59 AM
Nice Shinro. 8.5/10. I don't know why, but the first one bugs me. It seems like it would be a smiley of some sort, no offense.

Here is another one.http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/7240/symbol235yi.png

September 3rd, 2005, 11:07 AM
That one, Geno is, apart of odd, and cool, too huge!


September 5th, 2005, 6:42 AM
Hey! Here is my symbol. I gave it big, because you can better rate it, ang small, like in a card ;)

September 5th, 2005, 7:00 AM
