Spriter Awesome Boss Contest! $1000 Grand Prize!


Recommended Posts

Discussion has moved to this thread, which has the complete official rules.


BrashMonkey is excited to announce our first ever Spriter animation contest. This contest is for all you great artist-animators out there, and the theme is “Awesome Boss”.

Entries must be inspired by this phrase in any way you see fit, but the general idea is to make at least one animation of some kind of cool and intimidating thing you might see as a boss in a video game.   Additional animations of your boss are welcome, especially if you feel more animations are needed to show off the concept.  As all entries must be visible to the public for voting, we'll only accept submissions which would not be considered “offensive” to or “inappropriate” for a general audience.

Any and all art styles are allowed, ranging from the use of 3d pre-rendered bits animated in Spriter to old-school hand drawn pixel-art, or anything in-between, just so long as you're using only original art which no-one else has ownership of (partial or otherwise), and please, no Art Pack usages as a base for your boss. Any entries must be animated with Spriter.

Teams may collaborate on a single entry, but of course would have to split any prize that they might win among themselves the way they see fit.

Three cash prizes will be awarded via electronic transfer (Either PayPal or a similar means.  More details in a followup announcement) as follows, based on the number of votes by community members:

  • The Grand Prize of $1,000.00 USD
  • Second place Prize of $350.00 USD
  • Third Place Prize of $150.00 USD

All entries must be submitted in their completed form by August 24th, at which time voting will be possible.

Voting will be closed on August 31st.  The winner will be announced the following day.

The community will be the judges, and the winners will be based on number of votes for each entry (One entry per person or team). Voters should consider the following attributes while casting their votes:

  • Art style and quality
  • Animation (interesting, impressive, lively, etc.)
  • Originality
  • Awesomeness.

No purchase is necessary. Anyone can create an entry using the free version of Spriter which can be downloaded from here.

However, now's a great time to grab the even more awesome, powerful, and fun to use Spriter Pro from our online store at 50 percent off the retail price by using coupon code: BOSS during your purchase! This sale ends July 23rd.

We will have a second announcement in the next few days with the remaining information, including how to submit your entries, etc.

If you have any further questions or comments about this contest, please post them in this thread.

Best of luck to all you great artists, and let the awesome animating begin!

Hat off to you Team Spriter for making such a cool contest 8-)

You should post this news on Twitter (#indiedev #gamedev #pixelart), TIGSource Forums, Pixel Joint Forum etc when you finalize all of the details, as there will be alot of interest for such a high prize! There will also likely be fame and work offers for the winners.

p.s. please slow down the framerate of the gif at the top of this page, it advances every 2 seconds, should be something like 5 secs so you can read the text :blink:
