The winners of the very first 2017 TinyWars fan art contest have been chosen! Thank you very much for entering.

 

I really enjoy hosting these types of contests. It really helps us see where people are in terms of their understanding of our concept and story. These contests totally help us understand our fans better and I hope everyone who entered found it to be rewarding!

 

Some kind words from Sean Braganza of Highereg.com (one of the judges for this contest!)

”¬†TinyWars’ art contests never fail to bring out some of the best of DeviantArt, and this latest one is no exception. It’s always fun seeing such an outpouring of vivid color, anime-love and overall enthusiasm around a game still heavy in development.”

 

Here are your badges, please display them proudly on your DeviantArt submission!

Fan Art Contest 2016 (Time Extension!!!)

Fan Art Contest 2016 (Time Extension!!!) 1494 959 andrew

Important Announcement!!!

We have received SO MANY fan art submissions in the final days of our contest, please check them out! On top of this, many of the art groups that we actively post on have members who felt like they “missed out” on the contest. So many people said they totally would have entered this contest if only they knew about it in the first place.

We are officially extending the contest by 1 week. The new contest ending date is 9/19/16.

The official DeviantArt group for the competition is here! 

Increasing Winners

In order to be fair to those who have already entered before the original date, we are going to be adding MORE WINNERS to this contest! We will be adding two additional winners to this contest. These two additional winners can apply to any category in our original list of categories:

  • Best Overall Artwork (1 x winner)
  • Best Fit for “Tiny” Theme (2 x winners)
  • Most Unique Style¬†(1 x winner)
  • Creator’s Pick¬†(1 x winner)

On top of these original 5 winning categories, we will also be adding 2 extra that can apply to ANY CATEGORY!

7 Winners Total

It might not sound like a lot of winners, however we had never expected to have received as many submissions as we did! Had we known we were going to get over 25 submissions for this contest we would have ordered way more wallscrolls! Please understand, these wallscrolls do cost us money, and as of right now TinyWars is literally bringing in $0 in revenue. This contest, the wallscrolls, are all investments into our marketing strategy.

deviant-art-submissions-2016

And I have to say that I am really pleased with how great this contest has turned out. Our fans are incredibly awesome for making fan art for this contest! I would share some of our favorite submissions, however I feel like that might seem a bit unfair to entrants. We will wait til the contest officially ends on 9/19/16 before announcing the winners, AND honorable mentions!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for entering our contest, and thank you to the new entrants who now have 10 days to complete an entry for this contest! Good luck everyone!

5 WINNERS!

In order to encourage participation, there will be 5 total winners for this contest! This way more artists can have a chance at winning the prizes. Of course we will have a category for the best overall artwork, however there will be other categories that one can not simply win by having the “best” art skills.

Winner Categories

1. Best Overall Artwork

Several members from the TinyWars artwork team will judge the submissions and select the one that contains the best overall display of artistic ability and skill. There will only be one (1) winner in this category.

2. Best Fit for the “Tiny” Theme

TinyWars isn’t just about cute girls, but cute girls who are tiny! Artwork which integrates with the theme of “tiny” and successfully shows an understanding of the core themes of TinyWars will be eligible for this category. There will only be two (2) winners from this category.

3. Most Unique Style

A submission which demonstrates a clear use of unique style, from hand drawn artwork to a stylistic approach, not all fan arts need to be “anime style.” A submission that clearly demonstrates stylistic mastery will be eligible for this category. ¬†There will only be one (1) winner from this category.

4. Creators Pick

The creator of TinyWars will personally view and select a submission that has not been chosen in the previous categories as the fifth and final winner. There will only be one (1) winner from this category.

Her story is a bit mysterious, however what we do know is that she is the leader of the group and she is very bossy. Sometimes she gets angry easily and can throw tempter tantrums, however for the most part she is very confident that she can take on the world, both tiny and the big world! Her age is estimated to be 16 years old.

Old Sister References

Character Description: Old Sister lives in the Candy Castle with her little sister, Amy. ¬†She is often seen sleeping and lazing around while her little sister does all the work. She even gets the ants to bring things to her because she’s so lazy! Her age is estimated to be between 19 – 21 years old. She is in charge of defenses at the Candy Castle and operates a gumball canon. Why does this character not have a name? Because naming characters is really hard and she is not exactly a “main” character in this story.

Suzu References
