Contests #16 & #17 - DQI DS design contests

Recommended Posts

Guest Plattym3

OK, long post ahead. Here's the vital info first.

 

Submissions: PM them to me. You may submit 2 per contest. Yes, you can do 2 magazine ads and 2 box arts.

Deadline: Sunday, December 21st at 8PM EST.

 

Now for my long-winded explanation...

 

ITS FINALLY TIME TO GET THIS STARTED.

 

We've been discussing it for a month now, and now that the urgent post count level contests are winding down, it's time to get back to our fantasy DQI DS contests. We held 2 contests to come up with a subtitle and a tagline. The winners were:

 

Subtitle: Dragon Quest: Hero of Alefgard

Tagline: Don’t want to give it a try? But Thou Must!

 

Using those 2 pieces of information and any graphical means you wish, these contests ask you to create a Box Cover for Dragon Quest DS and a magazine ad for Dragon Quest DS. I'm putting some fan-created Joker box art below and some of the more recent magazine ads for DQ games. Use them as a reference if you wish. Once again, you can design 2 magazine ads and 2 covers for a total of 4 submissions for these 2 contests. Good luck and PM me as you get them done.

Judge you. No one here would do that, especially not in a contest. No judgements are passed there.

 

Now, my submissions will be in the mix too, so don't worry, you won't come in last.

For the box art, are we doing NES boxes? Nintendo DS boxes? Any box you want?

DS

 

for the simple reasoning that if these are ever remade in the next couple of years, it'll most likely be on the DS.

Question: How would a person who can't draw a stick figure that well get started with this???

Here is a template for a DS cover that I used back for the SK submissions, this may help out. Click for large version.

Sadly I don't have the pictures I would like to use, so I will have to use other pictures in replacement, leaving only a shadow of what I envision D:

I will try to get one done by the 21th, probably before.

Btw, is it a must to make both the cover and the ad?
