This is one of the reasons I'm holding this contest.

Gah what a horrendous design. Seriously, what a waste.

I'm setting myself a time limit of taking no more than one days work to Rig the Existing Official Dresspheres. On the other hand I can't wait to start modeling your Dressphere. just like the time I put into making Rinoa, I can't wait to give it all the love of my craft I can and refine it to the sharpest degree. The only thing I regret is that I won't be able to use all of them, or give your dressphere more screentime. This movie definitely isn't going to be as long as DFII.

The more submissions that make it final the less I have to use the horrendous dresspheres from the game. Even though it'll be more work.

Excellent submissions thus far. I've seen a few that really really great. It makes me want to make more content in order to use your sphere longer. I can garauntee that I will definitely post up Renders and 3D posters of your design. I notice there are more than a few of you gunning to be the one who makes the Nariko/Kratos chain sword character. My little suggestion,  4 words

Fate... Stay... Night.... Rider

WHO SAID THAT?!!?

Edit
Another Suggestion:

3D unlike 2d benefits from being able to utilize texture maps for for highly (sometimes over) designed patterns and textures of clothing. I.E. Lace and ornate lines/patterns. This is an easy win for anything that is going to be translated into 3d. Not saying that flat shading is worse, but keeping in mind that this is going to be built into a 3D model. Texturing benefits up all.

Just some more thoughts on this as I've been getting more good feedback.

Q: Can I submit more than one?
A:I'd say submit your best, hopefully I'll get back to you and see what other rough ideas you may have. And we'll flesh some things out. Unless of course your completely confident your design(s) a winner. Then we all benefit.


Q: Will submitting a fully colored artwork help my design win?
A: Coloring doesn't garauntee winning, but effort begets thought regardless of skill.


Q: Does my drawing have to be good to win?
A: A beter drawing only helps protray the idea better. I have a good imagination and a very sharpened sense of perception. I'll get it if there's something there to get. Though, I am a stickler for a clean final product, to in the end I may want a clean submission to go along side the movie. But this submission phase is mostly to jive back and forth about ideas.

Other Thoughts:
One thing that's kinda hard to avoid is that I may be biased towards my taste. As the Director, it's my job to pick what I feel is the best among the talent. That's not saying my choice is always right, it's just what I want. Therefore I have two solutions for this:

1. I may hold a poll for a "People's Choice" category with ayet to be determined number of winners which we as a group can vote on. So from now on when submitting a deign(s) tag it with the keywords "Dead Fantasy III or Monty Oum" (Just becasue it would narrow the search query) so that the design can be pulled up quickly.

2. CONFORM TO MEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

My tastes include and ARE MOSTLY, but doesn't necessarily require:

Skirts
Boots (with a maximum fetish quotient of 6 hahaha)
High Heels (Despite the fact that they're not so functional, but who cares)
Strappy stuff & Belts
Cool Hair Pieces
Short Shorts
Responsible usage of bows
Thigh Highs (Stockings or boots)
Leg Warmers
Cool Designer Tops
Hints of Lace

Really anything you'd want to see a normal person wearing. Think Nomura, as in not too crazy, not too fantastical. Stuff that could actually pass as real clothes, but at the same time is pushing it.. With believable characters comes believable design. If the prettiest person you knew wore XY design and still got laughed at in public, you know there's something wrong.

Therefore, the list of things that really turn me off include and ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
Unitards
Massive Poofiness
An absurd amount of Metal & Bolts
Over Lacey-ness
STEEL SPIKES
Loincloths
Overtly Exposed Crotches
Unrelatable Fantasy
Liberal usage of anything

Part of the reason for this contest is I HATE the secondary designs in FFX-2. I will use some of them, but honestly it could've been done better.

Really that above is to avoid is someone putting their heart into something and it not get used. I'm putting this advice out there because think of it as me responding to that note you sent me under the pile of other notes that I'm still digging through. As always I'd rather get back to you personally, but my inbox just here on DA is 16,000+ full. It's becoming a full-time job just answering messages on top of everything else I need to get done. Please consider this and I will do my best to get back to you.

Original Info:

Dead Fantasy III will feature dressphere changes in the one on one fight between Rikku and Ayane. I do plan on using some of the existing dresspheres, but as I abhore most of their designs, (seriously what a waste, you've got a game where cute girls are constantly changing outfits and all you have to choose from is crap on top of crap.) I am taking the opportunity to reach out to you my fellow artist and work together on making some fan made dresspheres.

Further detailing the requirements of this, I'll bullet point the relevant and great ideas info so far.

- This is for Dead Fantasy III, which I will be working on on and off alongside some other things

- I am asking for an original design. I'm doing this cause I want you to see your design in my movie

- I will be modeling it, all I'm really asking for is a quick drawing, maybe even if it's an idea well though out enough that I could draw myself.

- When the movie's done I want to be able to point to your artwork and give you full credit when people say "where's that dressphere? How come I didn't see that in the game?"

Rules:
Dressphere cannot overlap the current existing dresspheres. I.E. don't design a gunner dressphere when a gunner one already exists.

Not too comical - I.E. Mascot, Trainer, Berserker, lady luck, they're kinda pushing it as far as designs go. This movie is pretty serious actually. When I think about the previz, it's pretty hard hitting. So I don't want to put something in that'll distract the viewer.

Must fit Rikku's Style - She has a generally warm color pallete and high yellows. She's also wearing things on the skimpy side, but the designs that work well on her are still more or less tastefull

This is still a fighting movie - Which means it still has to be something that's mobile, so I anticipate having a pretty tough time with ones like Black Mage that aren't built for high movement.



STEPS FOR SUBMITTING:
Simply upload you artwork to your DA account and send me a link (believe it or not I really do read all the comments/notes/messags.)

DEADLINE
Not too sure, I haven't quite figured out my schedule for the next few months, but I can guarantee it won't be anytime soon. This movie is going to require a massive amount of content creation.

Looks like TN's rolled out more images of Ninja Gaiden 2's Sonia...

I suppose Sonia can counter Yuna's guns if she's able to be included into Dead Fantasy

I wonder how fast you can fly, Team Ninja's introduced the latest babe that'll be in Ninja Gaiden 2. Name's Sofia.

[link]

She probably will have not much to do in the upcoming game until they do a Sigma version. Still, maybe she, and whoever that other babe is that's yelling from the air vehicle, could show up before Dead Fantasy is over.

I love your comments on the picture. Is there any chance of you taking apart the other dresspheres in such a manner? Because it's AWESOME.

-_- great. I was having fun yesterday drawing up a new design inspired by the thought of BlitzBall and her AlBehd outfit, but I realize it looks similar to this design that you've scrutinized so harshly.


Oh well. I'll post it anyways cuz i'm proud of it, it's up to you of course to consider it.

The problem with 2d animation is that you have to draw everything each frame, so if the design is too detailed, it's a lot of work to do right. But in 3d, once you model / texture it, you dont have to worry about it anymore, so intricately designed clothes and such can be done without too much trouble.

... Huh. Not sure I understand how that's a suggestion for us, though.
