YO! If you're interested in what we're doing here and would like to help us reach enough people to run the tournament, we're doing a little watcher raffle! centuryarkstorm-oct.deviantart… I hope you can help us out! Thaaanks~
Do you like Zoids?? Maybe know someone who does? Interested in joining (or just watching) an OCT this summer? Do you like character-driven sci-fantasy? How about giant robot animals?! Or maybe you want to challenge yourself and finally learn to draw mecha!
You should definitely check out the OCT I've been building the past few months with my friends! CenturyARkStorm-OCT
With courses finishing for the summer, we're going to be getting our final materials into the group over the course of this month and into July, and depending what kind of attention the OCT is getting, we're looking at a rough guestimate of Auditions opening in early August, and will need at least 16 entrants in order for the tournament to begin!
You don't need any prior knowledge of any of the zoids animes to join this OCT - the barest minimum about what a zoid is will suffice, and all the info you need to navigate the world we've created for this tournament is right there in the group!
Art forms we accept for the tournament include digital and traditional art as well as photomanipulation! You can enter the tournament with your real world zoid model as your character's companion!
We also accept teams of two joining! Interested in the tournament but worried about not having enough time, or nervous about drawing mecha? Join with a friend to halve the work load!
And of course the most important part of all - prizes! I made sure I had enough saved up to make the prizes for this tournament really worth it! And as the tournament goes on, I'll keep on saving with the hope that I can add even more!
The crown jewel of our prize collection is going to be a hefty chunk of change for purchasing winner's pick zoid models OR winner's pick art commissions, for first, second and third place!
If you check out the group and help spread the word it would mean so much! I've dreamed of hosting a Zoids-themed tournament for years haha, ever since my first OCT. Life circumstances made that unfeasible until finally, this year! Just having been able to get the tournament built, getting to work with my friends on it as we have, all of this going so smoothly - this has already been wonderful and so much fun.
Zoids is a pretty obscure franchise and most people really avoid drawing machinery and robots, so I know it's gonna be an uphill battle to get enough competitors to be able to run the tournament. Any help we can get from word of mouth and other advertising is going to make all the difference. At the very least, thanks a ton for reading this journal hehe ;u;
