Let me say this one was very close!! And great job to everyone who entered! Your submissions were all beautiful! <3
Now the winner! *drumroll*
Congratulations to ~Majikaru-Rin
for winning October's theme!
This month's theme shall be:Out Of A Dream
Now in my opinion it's a very broad theme, not very much restriction (aside from our rules of course!), but also a very creative one if you want to be really out there! It could be anything from your nightmares to the most beautiful creature or person your mind can conjure up.
So let's make some models and have some fun guys!
1. The title MUST have "MOTME" in it
If it does NOT have this, your entry will be declined.
2. You MUST credit people CORRECTLY.
You CANNOT say "from the MMD-Mall" or "I forgot". Credit EVERY part correctly, or your entry will be declined. State the person's username who made it and the original model maker if it says it.
These parts include:
Model parts (hair,clothes,etc)
Textures (.sph,.spa,eye textures)
and other things that are in the mall.
If you do NOT credit anyone, your entry will be declined.
3. You may NOT use textures only (this includes using stages only):
(example: putting only textures on miku or miku in a park stage)
If you decide to do this, your entry will be declined.
4. You MUST use 3 or more parts from the MMD-Mall.
If you do not, your entry will be declined.
5. Do NOT use illegal parts, or your entry will be declined. This includes:
Project Diva, Dreamy Theater, Polygon Love 2, and any other games EXCEPT 3DCG.
Nanami, Saboten, and for others check MikuMikuDance wiki
6. The model must be new for this contest.
This means that it must be produced after 1st of July 2013, anything produced before then will be declined.
7. Please include only one model in your entry
If you have multiple submissions, please split them into separate submissions
8. You may enter as many times as you like, but can only get one entry into the finals.
9. Any users "bribing" users to vote for their model will have their model removed from the competition.
An example: "I'll put it up to download only if I win"
10. Your model must reflect the essence of the theme or it shall be rejected
If your entry is declined, then please read through the rules again before asking us why it was declined.
If you break the rules on several occasions then you will be banned from all future contests.
All models that follow all the rules will be entered into the MotM folder. At the end of the month the admins of the group will pick their favourite 10 models, based on skill, overall look and accuracy to the theme. These 10 entries will be placed in a poll (in no particular order), and this will be open for all members of MMD-Mall to vote on. The model that receives the highest number of votes will be deemed the Model of the Month.
Note: All models are hand checked before the are accepted, this process may take a few days, please be patient with us. Also, please note that all entries entered before the deadline will be considered for the poll (as long as they follow the rules), even if they have not been approved by the deadline, so don't worry~
Tips and Tricks
A few tips and ticks that will help get your model noticed:
Be imaginative! Don't just pick a whole outfit and stick it on a model.
Show your model off. You may have made the nicest looking model ever, but if we can only see a rubbish looking picture that shows off nothing of it, then we can't appreciate it's awesome-ness
Never be afraid to enter. You can't win if you don't enter
Don't be disheartened if you don't get through to the finals. Your entry may not've been quite as good as others this month, but take it as a learning experience. You can only get better.
Take your time. You have a whole month to enter, try and make your model the best it can possibly be.
Have fun and good luck!
