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. :>
