Alright, you guys should know me by now. I'm the resident Pikachu fanatic, and tbh, I don't think much more needs to be said. Still, I'll give more details for those who want it...
1. All entries must be PM'ed to me
I've had previous competitions, and the judging turned into a bit of a mess; sifting through about 30 pages finding entries isn't much fun. For this reason, I think they should be PM'ed to me. Posting them in the thread is optional, they will be placed in the first post either way. I can't guarntee that entries only posted will be seen and entered.
2. All entries must include either my name or "Teh Peek-uh-chewz"
Teh Peek-uh-chewz, spelt exactly like that, is my dev team. Smaller text underneath that saying "PSP LUA Dev Team" is optional. You can use your own fonts, create your own logos, and do whatever, so lng as its there and its legible.
3. All entries must contain a picture of pikachu
I don't care if its a tiny logo in the bottom, or filling the whole signiture; jsut so long as theres one in it, I don't mind. Pikachu FTW.
4. There is no set theme
Go wild. Don't be afraid to use random colours, theme, or whatever. I've had some abstract entries before now that kicked ass. Seriously, go for whatever you feel like, and don'tfollow the crowd. Just because everyone else's is yellow and orange themed, doesn't mean yours has to be.
5. All entries must consist of both an avatar and a signiture.
Most forget this-- I don't mind a delay inbetween the PM/posting of the images, just so long as both are present by the closing date. You'd have to have a damn good reason to make me accept after that.
6. Multiple entries are allowed, under certain conditions.
I've decided to allow people to enter more than once, just to give them a chance to redeem or improve upon their entries; however, all will be counted as seperate entries. Still, with these rules in place, you can only recieve one prize; Say you win both 1st and 3rd; You'd recieve the higher prize, 1st place, and the person who came in 4th would take the 3rd prize. Ask for a better explaination if needed.
At the moment, to be honest, it isn't set. It depends on the response to this competition. Lots of entries and it could be shut within a week. 2 or 3, and it could be a month. It is not going over that time limit. Basically, for now, its a month from today. That is the very latest the date can be; from which, it can only be moved forwards.
Deadline: 19th October 2007
Another thing I havn't quite figured out. It will be either polled or judged, although I'm not sure which, it strongly depends on what judges I can get my hands on. If you are judging, I don't want it to be biased. Although I'm probebly going to have quite a few friends entering, I will not let friendship sway my judgement. (Sorry, guys!) And now, what you've all be waiting for.
Theres a full 80 million up for grabs. Note that, even if a signiture doesn't win, I do change mine around a lot, so I'm likely to use every signiture in this contest at least once; its almost certain that I will, so don't be put down if it isn't yours. Still, you will miss quite a few points...
All entries that are accepted are very likely to be used by me, whether it be the day the competition ends this time next year. I'll be sure to get through them all. also, if you choose to go for the peek-uh-chewz logo, everyone on my dev team are probebly likely to use it too. If you like seeing your work on show, thats the route to go. So, with everything said...
check your PM's & don't laugh...well you can a little.

I'll post up the current entries now. I've said it once, and I'll say it again; this oughtta be a good contest :D
09-20-2007, 05:20 AM
ugh....now that I look at it some more...I could have done better. Can we have multiple entries?
09-20-2007, 05:29 AM
Sure, bootlegger. But you can only win one prize, and its the one for your highest entry. Say, you win 1st and 3rd with you're entries, you'd only recieve 1st. Whoever came 4th would then recieve 3rd. Does that make sense?
I'll have to add that to the first post.
09-20-2007, 03:27 PM
hm... i'll give this a shot, tomorrow. :p
(you know why fresh! lol)

I know, I forgot to send you a PM over that; I did find it. I thought the link you put under the signiture was just the same thing, my mistake. I put it up when I realised. sorry, and thanks.

Can I have an opinion on this? But be truthful, I'm fairly new to Photoshop, but I don't want to be lied to.
doesn't blend, background doesn't match, no flow, but since your new to photoshop its not that bad
09-26-2007, 05:11 AM
May I suggest that you host your images on a better site, for example www.imageshack.us - Sorry, its just that I've now been sat here for 2 minutes and the picture hasn't loaded yet. And French, must you be so negative?
09-26-2007, 02:15 PM
Its not harsh, i just see thats he's saying the truth.
I mean, its a pretty good start, but...
And, it might just be me, but dont use the 3-d pikachu on a 2-d Sig. It...just, looks horrible to me. Not just yours, its the actual pikachu that really makes me want to puke. [3-d image].
09-26-2007, 05:16 PM
I don't like the 3-d pikachu, but I don't like the 2-d ones either. I'll just have to make some tweaks. And, thanks for being honest. Maybe I'll give it another shot.
09-27-2007, 08:35 AM
Speaking of pikachu pictures, I collected a load of good pictures in my old signiture thread for people to use. I could add them into a spoiler on the first post here, if you can't find a useful one or something; some are actually quite good...
09-28-2007, 03:39 PM
Fresh I don't think anyone else is interested so I think you start the judging.
