Title: Background Blitz - Elevators (CLOSED)
Post by: jwalt on 01 Apr 2020, 20:25
Didn't really give Blur very long to claim his rightful position, but I had a thought about elevators, so here it is:

Make a Background image involving elevators. Some examples:

And for those AGSers in Nebraska, or Kansas, who have never seen a "lift," here's another possibility, a grain elevator:

Judging criteria as normal:

Concept - Does it match the subject matter?
Play ability - Are there things in the image that make your mouse finger twitch?
Artistic merit - Is it "pretty?"

Current plan is to take entries until April 20. Followed by five days, or so, to vote.

I tried very hard to come up with something, but in the end this is the only idea that stuck.
So I get in line with the entries that should not be taken to serious  :-D

Topic is current MAGS inspired (now if only I could think of a story to make this into a game  :-[ )

I didn't like the only idea I had all month for this contest. But I was working on a better starfield and it gave me this idea:

Hi! Can I quickly add a late entry :D?

(https://i.imgur.com/N8WBDXc.jpg)

"Ushered by the viral outbreak of COVID-19, Captain Corona was forced to come out of retirement to clear his name. He took the secret elevator to his former clandestine hideout in the attic of his townhouse. No one had been here in some time. However, this would have to do. The world needed a hero!"

I was gonna go with color, but I actually liked the vintage look. Made fully in Procreate on an iPad Pro.

I'm ildu by the way. I used to be a really avid member of AGS like years and years ago. Some oldies might remember me :). I used to run many of the Background Blitzes back in the day and I'm really glad to see BB still alive today - wow! I've been sort of lurking in the forums for roughly a year now just following up with what's been happening here. First time posting in what would have to something like 7 years.

ildu that is some awesome artwork. I hope to see more from you.
And I like the idea of Captain Corona - the hero that buys groceries for the elders and gifts toilet paper to those in need :D

Thanks, all, for the entries and voting!

ildu appears to have made the elevator most folks want to ride, and will have the honor of running the next Background Blitz.

Oh hey, thanks :D! Are we as participants allowed to vote by the way?

I'll do a new thread as soon as I can. Is two-three weeks okay with an additional week for voting?
