Happy month of Luigi! To celebrate, this month's It's aMAZEing features Luigi's cap!



Check out the maze this became right here!



This month's Anniversary Announcements also feature some new interviewee sprites!

MrConcreteDonkey
Stargazing

Both of these have been created from scratch, with a bit of reference to Peach for Stargazing.
There is also GBAToad's sprite, but that's just the sprite of Ms. GBAToad from Awards Mafia last year, with a normal Toad's face instead.



I also did the team backgrounds in The 'Shroom this month. Check them out in the paper!

And we're back! This month, It's aMAZEing features another sports ball, the volleyball! Here is the base figure!



Simple enough!

Check out the maze I made this into right here!



Also this month is a new Anniversary Announcements with two interviews, one of which has a semi-new sprite!

NEXandGBX

This is mostly a recolour of an existing Lilligant sprite, but with some additional changes to the flower (it's a bit smaller than the original).
BLOF's sprite was made by herself, with my only change in the length of the spike on the helmet.

Fashionably two weeks late with this but here we go anyway. It's aMAZEing of August is the Special Cup's crown!
This is in celebration of the awards that happened this month, but also to celebrate this section winning the Best 'Shroom Section Artwork award! Thanks to everyone who voted!



Check out the maze I made this gem into right here!



Although this month's Anniversary Announcements did not have Committee Interviews, it was planned that Shoey featured. I did make him a sprite however, and it'd be a shame if that went into the closet.

And of course, thanks to everyone who voted for Anniversary Announcements in Best 'Shroom Section Design and got me in first here too!



Coming up next eventually:
  • Awards presentation BTS
  • Anniversary Scavenger design stuffs

I said I was going to post all the user art of Anniversary Scavenger in this thread and I haven't done so yet. So I'm doing that right now.
If you want drawings of the other cards, open an image in a new tab and try tampering with the URL. You'll probably get there.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

It was an interesting challenge to make some of these drawings. Y'see, I can't really draw that well.
Thus, nearly all images have been created by importing a reference image into Inkscape, and I then traced it. This allowed for me to choose consistent line thicknesses and easily tweak individual components to complete the drawings.

However, not every subject has readily available art that I can simply trace. Some things don't have 3D artwork, others are not in a pose I'd like, some users are original characters with a capital O or wear clothes the character they are derived of don't.
For this reason I have also thrown together some models in 3ds Max, posed them, and then traced a screenshot of that. I also have in instances Frankensteined several artwork pieces together and filled in the gaps.

These also took a lot of time, which ate some of my plans for presentations I had and overal stuff I wanted to do, so I'm not doing this exact same thing anytime soon. I have plenty of things I want to do for the awards and I'd like to actually do them next time, including the thing I imply in this thread.
This is also the reason I'm not planning on running this game next year. But don't worry, I have plenty of ideas noted down for the next time. 2020 probably.

There is not really a deep story behind the visual theme of this Anniversary Scavenger. Last year it was stickers, with an album roughly based on the badge collection in Mario Party DS.
The obvious follow up was cards, with a theme strongly based upon Paper Mario: Colour Splash in all parts. Camwood called it, although I didn't do the paint thing yet.
I also did some funky things with the album such that you can click on the cards and the back button would actually correctly navigate in between the things, including the back button on smartphones. That was pretty fun to experiment with. Didn't work in Internet Explorer but it neatly falls back in that one.

So yeah, I hope you all like the free art of your OC's and the others as well! Thanks again for signing up and for playing!

Just a teensy nitpick: my overall buttons should be white, and the overalls should be browner, but I don't have any complaints beside those. Sorry. ^^'

You say you don't draw well, but I really like this simplified look. Great job with this, can't wait to see what you do next year (if anything)!

I followed exactly the colour scheme of the SSB reference you linked to plus your note on the eye colour. Glad you liked it though!

Thanks! As mentioned, I don't plan to do this next year, but I do have some plans for the next time!

I really wish I just sent you my model file instead, she's fully rigged and all. Judging from my artwork, I knew exactly where you got the picture from: the body was from the artwork I provided you and the head came from my signature.

Oopsie then. I should've did a better job at that sort of reference image thing.

I see. Either turn off the forum censor, or open it in a new tab and replace "*bleep*" with "shiT" (capital sensitive).

I'm wondering if it's possible to make the censor not apply to URLs since it does screw up with embedding and linking and whatnot.

These look amazing dude.

Have absolutely no complaints about mine, I would maybe say that I would've preferred you did me in a different pose, but seen your method of drawing these, I really can't say anything like that.

The simplicity of it all is pretty much what makes it this great... why did you say you couldn't draw well?

I think these are all pretty good! ...Except maybe for Alex95. He looks weird, which I think is because his chin is too round and undefined and his hair isn't quite right. Here's the normal picture for comparison:



That being said, he's an original character with a capital O, so I can see why it would be hard to draw him perfectly. And hey, the man himself likes it, so who am I to contradict that? :P

In any case, these are quite nice drawings, and I love mine, so nice work.

I'm perfectly okay with people drawing my characters their own way as long as I can tell who it is :P

They're really cool! Sadly, some users don't have an OC, so they  weren't featured here.

Thanks! I went for that pose because it was recognisable, not necessarily because of the method as you are one of those I used posed models for.
I say I can't draw because I can't, I traced (existing) images for these.

I see what you mean and partly agree with what you say, but to be fair, his Stephan character is drawn in a variety of different ways. One more variant doesn't matter all that much.

Thanks though!

I don't know what you mean? Everyone that signed up ended up in this game.



I realised that people that haven't played haven't seen the album, and people that have can't access it anymore. Thus, have a few screenshots.
A detail I like is that the name tags under the cards don't all look identical if you look at them closely.
And for those curious of what font family I used for the logo and a few headers, its name is "Luckiest Guy".

I have to say the amount of effort you put into this was incredible. All the artwork looks great and the fact that you made models just to use as reference is insane. You nailed my OC very well too of course. Spectacular work!
