[N.B. This contest has ended! You can view the winning entries here: http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=16243]


Legends of Equestria's initial December release is right around the corner! We're super hard at work polishing everything for you all to enjoy - but we've left a little room for you to have some fun and help us out, too!

We've decided to hold a competition for you to add your own little flair to the game, and have a chance at being credited as part of the Legends of Equestria project! All you have to do is share your ideas for mane and tail styles for all player characters to use - If you've got a super cool original idea for a hairstyle, we want to see it!

We've provided you with some templates below on which to base your design; all you have to do is create the perfect style, and submit it back to us in the forum thread as a response to this post! We'll then select twenty-five winning entries and incorporate them into the character creator for the game - for you, and for everyone else who plays!

The full details for the contest are listed below, but the important thing is to have fun with your designs! The contest will run from now until 10th September 2016, and we will announce the winners on 17th September 2016.

And just to reassure you - we aren't expecting you all to submit perfectly modeled masterpieces! As long as we can tell how it's meant to look, you'll have a shot at winning; so get creative, and have fun doing it, no matter what your skill level!

We're looking forward to seeing all your ideas! Good luck!

Guidelines

  • Use the templates provided below as the basis for your design
  • Unisex styles and matching facial hair are strongly encouraged, but ultimately it's your creation!
  • Each submission should include (at least) both a mane and tail style
  • LoE's character creation engine supports up to three different colours in a pony's mane and tail, so feel free to include multiple colours!
  • Fully rendered designs aren't necessary, but designs should clearly indicate different colour regions where applicable
  • One entry per person, submitted as a post to this forum thread; you can post multiple designs in this thread, but please clearly label your final submission!
  • Twenty-five winners will be chosen by the team leaders of Legends of Equestria's Concept Art and 3D Modeling teams

You don't need to be a super-pro 3D Modeller to enter; we've got our own team for that! Even if it's just an MS paint drawing over the top of the template, as long as we can tell what it's supposed to be, we'll consider it!

Case and point, here's my own completely awful example of what we'd be happy with for an entry:




See, this is why I'm in PR and not any of the actually talented teams  ;)


(P.S. This is just an example image, and should not be taken as my own entry or anything; I ain't entering)

A LoE design contest?? 



...ahem. X3

Any way we could get a quick reference list of the designs currently in play? I'd hate to design something that's too similar to a design that's already in use. ;)

So.. we all lost already, because that bacon hair is the best mane I ever seen in my life.  :3
Great example!  lol

I'm terrible at art, so most likely even paint will not help me. Perhaps I'll try my hoof on it, but I bet it will be even more epic than that bacon mane.  lol

Good luck to everypony!

So, if I did, say, a drawing of the hairstyle on a base... would that be accepted?

It's always recommended to use those images above as a base to draw your hairstyle on because everyone have their own way of drawing pony heads, necks and bodies.
While it's nice to see your own style of drawing ponies, the end result will not always look the same or some details will be cut out due to the size or shape being different.

That is really good looking.

Just a reminder to keep the colors distinct like in this example. https://p3d.in/F76OW/spin
The hair color itself does not really matter. It's just to show what areas will change when you change the hair between the choices in-game.
It's not really needed, but I recommend drawing in other angles as well so I have a better idea how the hair should flow in 3D space.

Alright then.

Upload an image to a website like http://imgur.com/ and then when the image is uploaded you right click "view image" and get the URL for it.
After that click the image and paste the URL between .

Still won't work properly, whatever, it was a good try c':

For future reference: On the page of the Imgur picture you would want to show, right click the image, and click to open it in a new tab. Copy the link from the tab that was opened, and put that in-between the IMG tags. The regular link is simply the page, the i.imgur.com link is the Imgur file itself, that the website can show.

I went ahead and did it for you, so for the purposes of the contest, here is iiTabiMoonii's Submission:

Heyo everyone !

Brand new member here, who heard through one of the holy moderators working here that there was a hairstyle design contest, so here's my submission !  :D


  • You'll notice the templates look different, but they're actually the same ones that were posted in the OP. I just "traced" over them to get a blank canvas, so the anatomy is exactly the same.
  • The hairstyle uses a maximum of two different colors, with the middle row having a different color. The hairstyle should be symmetrical (but if you want to make it asymmetrical for whatever reason, go nuts, it's your game  0:) )
  • Finally, the last row is there to help your modelling team. I know how much of a pain concept art can be to decipher, and with all the spikes in this haircut, I figured it'd be easy to get lost.  :P Basically, all you have to do is locate a blue spike and compare it to the other angles, etc...it should be pretty straightforward.

Crossing my fingers now. Good luck to all the participants !  ^-^
