    M'kay then.

    Overwatch-Anything related to the Overwatch universe. Might be an Overwatch agents, some Omnics, Talon soldiers, even the 21 heroes themselves!

    Lore Characters-Someone from the Warcraft Lore. Varian, Sylvol'jin, etc.

    Lol I'm not that original, but might as well could be added to the list.

    @Aph: You can't combine LoL and DOTA 2 into one. Well they are the same genre but they are completely different especially in art.

    Actually, we can also shove chars from the "Smite" game in there too and title the genre as "Famous Hero Defense/AoS Characters"

    Or rather "ASSFAGGOTS" (Aeon of Strife Styled Fortress Assault Game Going On Two Sides) Heroes, that'd be a really attractive name for a contest xD

    Lol.

    I disagree for one theme tho, which is Game of Thrones. I personally didn't and don't plan on watching it, and I bet there are others too. A theme should be thought up in such a way that they don't exclude people.

    And how do other themes not do that? Not everyone plays a moba. Same goes for other themes. Like the last one for example.
     
  7. he has the point. which left me a bit trouble to find an interesting character for me to reskin in the previous contest lol.

    and then someone said "it's not really him, why did you made a skin of him if you didn't know who is he?" it's what i get for putting up an old man on a horse in the game universe where he never ride a horse before. sigh..

    That's usually a modelling contest, not a texturing one. I do like the idea though, I wonder why one hasn't been hosted in such a long time.

    I like that ASSFAGGOT title XD

    With the paired contest, well, it will be really hard to get some entries/people interested in and it will take too much time.

    Sexual Orientation Inversion - make a unit's sexual orientation inverted. Like the Illidan model (which is male) turned into a female of the same model.

    I appreciate having a paired texturing-modelling contest but that's for another time and thread.
    Thank you for the post.

    DotA theme shall not be done. LoL, well, that could be integrated in the AoS/MOBA genre.
    However, it is rather way too wide in interpretation.

    DotA, on the other hand.....let's just quote Just_Spectating /have we come full circle?/
    That and there's much hate from some people towards this particular game/successor(kind of) of wc3.

    I think gender swap was done already, pretty sure of it actually as I remember chrome making Acolyte into a badass blood elven chick. On a side note, correct name for that theme is "Crossdressing".

    No, it is not. Crossdressing is dressing up as the opposite gender. Genderbend is an opposite gender version of a character.

    I quite like that idea. That one brings back quite the memories.
    Added!

    I am not that sure about cross-dressing though. It might spring some ideas that are too twisted for practical uses.

    You hint at the franchise as a whole or a specific race based theme?
    I feel that the SC theme is a bit wider than the Diablo theme we previously gone through.

    doesn't have to be a bad thing
    the diablo theme excluded some people from entering due to unfamiliarity with the game,
    but considering the Hive also supports SC modding, anyone here should be familiar with starcraft.
    we've had broad themes before, and I think it will provide a very wide range of creativity for everyone

    I was thinking that for such a theme we could allow custom models to be textured as well.
    It might spark more imagination that way and limit it less for some people seeing as the vanilla models have little(with few exceptions of course) to no corresponding units to the SC/SC2 ones.

    What do you think guys?

    Also, Apheraz's borrowed idea of Seven Deadly Sins could work for texturing. We have quite a lot of vanilla units that could be turned into such an idea.
    For example, Abomination and Ogre for Gluttony and Tinker or Alchemist for Greed.

    How about = Feral creatures/beast?

    People could turn things into werewolf, bearwolf, create wierd interresting beast as well. There's plenty of ''animal'' models in warcraft too! Could be fun :D

    You mean something that classical wc3 units could morph into? Or I got that wrong?
