Hey everyone! Lately I've been in the mood to make a new head but don't really know what to make. I attempted making my own but, as you can see from my recent post in my pixel art thread, it didn't turn out so great. So...I've seen a lot of raffle threads and such and decided I wanted to do my own raffle for a free custom head! Here's how it'll go:
Saturday, April 29th at 11:59PM/23:59 EST
Anything entered after the deadline will not be counted.
Entering the Raffle To enter the raffle, simply post a picture of the head you would like made.
This could be a picture that you drew yourself to give an idea of what you want your head to look like or an image you found online.
Note: If you use an online picture, it can be of anything you would like your head to be based off of. This includes anime or cartoons, literally any character! Just keep in mind that if you do use a picture of something that is copyright I will not make that character exactly for obvious reasons. I'll make a head that resembles the copyright character as closely as possible while still staying within the boundaries of the uploading rules. Just because I'm making the head doesn't mean the rules can be bypassed! That means I also can't put on anything that resembles a hat or accessory.
Optional: If you would like to get into more detail about what you would like your head to look like (i.e. how you want the other frames to look, style you'd prefer (cute, cool, etc.), if you'd rather have different hair or eye colors, additional details to the picture you provide, etc.) that would be more than welcome, and even encouraged! The more details you can provide for me right at the start, the easier it will be for me to make a head you would like.
Some examples of how I would like entries to be done:
-would like hair to be pink instead of white
-make injured frames cry
-make pulling frames face look like this:
-would like it to look super cute!!! xDD (^ω^)
Something like this:
-want it to look cute
-want it to blink
-make the dead frames inverse colors
-i want black hair and red eyes
-make it look totally awesome and cool
-give it a smirk
-pulls frames look like :3 <--kitty mouth
-no human ears only cat ears
...aaaand hopefully you get the point.
Selecting the Winner(s)
I say winner(s) because there is a chance I'll make more than one head if the entries seem interesting or if I feel up to making more, but for now there will only be one winner.
After the deadline is met, I'll gather up all the acceptable entries and put the names into a random name picker that Dusty has ever so graciously volunteered to create for me. Once the name picker spits out a winner, I'll post his or her name here in this thread and begin working on the head using the picture and details the winner provided me.
When I finish the head, I'll send it to you via personal message here on Graalians so you can see if you want to edit it further or not. If you're happy with the head and feel it needs no further editing, I will upload it to the server and add it to your account free of charge!
However, if you do wish to edit the head further, let me know and you will have 48 hours (2 days) to edit it yourself or get someone to edit it for you.
Once you have finished editing the head, send it back to me and I will upload it and give it to you. (Make sure you let me know your account number once you feel the head is complete so I can add it to you.) Note: If you do not get the edited head back to me within the 48 hours, you will not receive the head for free and will have to pay the 20k gralats to upload it yourself.
Rules and such
If you do not at least post a picture of the kind of head you would want, it won't be considered as an entry.
You can only enter once, and whatever entry you post last will be considered as your final entry and will be the head I'll make if you should win.
Again, keep in mind that the heads I make still need to follow the uploading rules listed here: http://classicupload.graalonline.com/
If you post a picture with a character/drawing that has a hat or anything that goes against the uploading rules, I simply won't draw it in when I create the head or if the picture goes against the rules too much I'll ask that you post a different one else I won't count it as an entry.
I will make animated heads so long as they aren't too complex and ridiculous.
If you should win, I will make your head and send it to you via personal message here on Graalians once I'm done. If there is anything on the head you want changed or adjusted, you must do it yourself or find someone to do it for you as I don't particularly want to sit and send messages back and forth to get your head just right. If you do want to edit the head a bit, you will be given 48 hours to do so and send it back to me. If you don't send the edited head back to me within 48 hours, you will not receive the head for free and will have to pay the 20k gralats to upload it to the server yourself.
Q&A Q: Can we post personal photos/real people for a head reference? A: Sure! But you have to post them in the thread like you would any other reference. I'm not entirely comfortable with random people messaging me personal photos of themselves. If you're not comfortable posting a personal photo of yourself in the thread, then pick another reference or use a picture of someone else that looks like you I guess.
Q: Can I post multiple references? A: Definitely! The more references I have the easier it would be to get the details right!
If you have any questions or comments post them below in this thread. I will update the original post as needed. Good luck!
-woah, ding ding ding, it's a whimsicott (you said we can post copyrighted characters as long as you can change it to fit the guidelines right?)
-obviously make the "hair" not as big
-disregard his tiny body ;-;
-make the eyes look more kawaii rather than just a staight-bland color
-make his skin more black
-get rid of his little cloud necklace
coco, this is very nice of you to do something like this (:
I've always loved N from Pokemon, and have always wanted to be able to look like him on Graal... I love to dress up in different personas(often Graal NPC's or joke characters I made) ⎌so it would be awesome if I could have that in game.
-I like how that picture looks, the facial expression and everything. I prefer happy expressions.
-I love how the face is in the picture, so if you could have the face look like that on the head that would be awesome.
-Pull frames should have the little anime sweat-droplet-thing and the "awkward/confused" expression.
-Fainted frames make hair Black/White, for obvious reasons
I like a nice blend of cute and cool, which the example photo represents well!
Thanks for having this contest, best of luck to everyone entering.
Lol Can i show you a pic of me? I really need a head. I can't make one because I don't have pc. Yes I'm poor! I don't want to post my image here, girl. I just want you to see it. Cmon I want a cute monster.
