You have 20 days to complete your icon for this competition.
Deadline - June 22th, 2013

And to those of you who are arguing at the bottom of this page that my post is irrevelant. The thing is that because Inazuma Eleven WAS initially a game, unlike One Piece, which started out as a manga. But to keep all fairness, FINE. I shall make a PURE GAME ICON, to all those hard-core believers.

Oh, and there's this query I have - Is it really okay to let people use fan-art/anime-fied versions of the characters from video games? Because, going by that assumption, I can use the luffy image in my signature as an entry since Luffy's a character in One Piece - Pirate Warriors video game.

My point being...I think this should be restricted to in-game character models only. Otherwise this becomes partially anime-based.

I hear you, but video games are the theme. I'm sure later down the road, anime will be a theme. Sometimes, yes, these two (as well as pretty much anything and anime) do merge. But fanart can have more aesthetic appeal than in-game character models. Video game icontest and the eventual anime icontest will have completely different subject matter, albeit similar in style. So I see no problem with any of the entries.

That is an excellent Luffy icon you're sporting though. :] And yes, technically, you can use it. But there may be icontests in the future where it would get a better reception.

Fair enough. Guess it's upto people if they wish to judge entries on the basis of their relevance to the theme or not, then. :p I personally like to have distinct boundaries between things so that there's no confusion. But that's just me and I guess it is sort of unavoidable in competitions like these, haha.

Thank you for the compliment on the luffy icon, btw. I'm glad you like it.

I think if the boundaries were to be further distinguished I think It'd strip the essence of competitions like this. For me, art is a form of expression, whereby an individual can interpret concepts and themes and then showcase them in a way that's unique and 'outside of the square', if you know what I mean.

Understandable. Like I said, it's just a personal preference o' mine so I don't really mind either way, haha. And you're right, the fact that people can derive so many different messages from a single piece of artwork is what makes art beautiful - that each piece is interpreted by differently by different individuals.

I think it's nice if the character or thing that the icon shows is from something that is mainly a game. One Piece, for example, is mainly a manga and anime so that would perhaps not be the best choice for a video game contest. Imo! :>

I never intended to have an entry revolving around an anime character (but someone who's also in a game based on the series) like Luffy. Was merely using the icon to explain my point. But yeah, you're right, of course. I didn't think of that. :>
