PostSubject: [CONTEST] Military Graphics Contest   Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:51 am

Happy 4th of July everybody! Today is when Americans like myself will spend the day preparing barbecue on the grill, spending time with family, and blowing shit up in the name of the glorious U.S. of A.

But while everyone is busy celebrating, it can be easy to forget that we wouldn't have the freedom to do these things if it wasn't for the bravery and sacrifices of the men and women of the armed forces. That is why we wanted to celebrate soldiers around the world with this month's contest.

The Military Graphics Contest

The theme for this contest is the Military. That doesn't just mean the U.S. military. ANY military personnel, equipment, and vehicles are allowed in this contest. The only thing we ask is that we keep the submissions centered around past or modern military styling.

This means Star-Wars, Star-trek, and other Sci-fi related titles are not allowed in this contest. We already did an entire contest for Science Fiction games. Also, games that jump the line between modern and Sci-fi such as Black Ops 2, 3 and Advanced Warfare will not be allowed. If you're upset we're not including SCi-fi games in this contest, I suggest you read this quote from @DVAted concerning the same matter when mixing the themes was suggested during the May Event Poll:
So, in the bounds of respect and good taste, please respect the theme for this contest: Modern Military.

So give us your very best submissions from games such as Call of Duty 1 to MW3, The Battlefield franchise, Insurgency, Tom Clancy's many games, World of Tanks, Arma, Counter-Strike, Verdun, and many more! Show off the soldiers in your favorite games and give those boys and girls some love and attention! These games are just suggestions, but if you're not sure if your game would be allowed, PM me and ask!


The submission period for this contest starts today!
July 4th - July 18th
After the submission period is over, a team of judges will deliberate, with the winners announced by July 25th.

The submission period has been extended onto the end of the month.

Now, onto the real reason anyone does anything nowadays... REWARDS!

4. Everyone who participates receives a guaranteed +1 rep from the organizing committee.

3. The top 5 winners of this graphics contest will all have their winning submissions featured in our site's group facebook photo albums!

2. The top 3 winners will be awarded a game key from the official list of game rewards:

1. Also, if the 1st place winner is not already a colonial, they will be instantly promoted!
(*members who have been demoted due to certain more or less recent grave infractions will not qualify for this reward)

I wish everyone that participates good luck, happy posting, and happy 4th of July!

and don't forget to also participate in our other contests:
The Military Screenshots Contest
The Military Fan-Fiction Contest

Can you figure it out?:

So, I'm new but I thought I'd join in. I did my graphic in the form of wallpapers.

The character is from Battlefield 1 btw.

This is based on Full Metal Jacket.

The final one is using an image from cod ww2 but using my photoshop with the makeshift grave and such.

I am an insane rookie when it comes to photoshop and I guess these kind of contests help with learning.
I'm planning on posting two images of which one may look a bit more edited than the other.

You may not really see it in this image but I tried having another military image inside the text.
I am planning on having the next image achieve that feature a bit better.
I also like attack helicopters.


So I tried something interresting with this next one.
So the game Spec ops: The line has different main menu screens the further you go to the main campaign becoming darker as the story goes darker aswell. Its a neat little detail.

So I wanted the text to have the darker shade of the main menu in it.
A real shame I couldn't figure out how to combine the two images a bit more in the corners or something.
Maybe I'll find out later.
For now I'm happy with the result.


And a bit of a reskinned idea I got from making my second entry as a third. Maybe people like it better.

They both aren't 900 by 200 though So I won't get to see them in the site banner even if it won. But hell do they look pretty.
