Don't miss our livestream with Director Steven S. DeKnight on 5/23 at 1:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time.

Your last name may not be Pentecost, but you can still help avert the apocalypse. Pacific Rim Uprising will be available via download on June 5 and on Blu-ray/DVD June 19, 2018. To celebrate, we want to see what your Jaeger would look like on your turf and give you prizes for it!

Create your own Jaeger and place it where you live, anyplace in the world you may be–maybe it's posing in your actual backyard, protecting the town square, or defending a local landmark. There are tons of options! Your Jaeger can be inserted into a photo or you can artistically recreate the location.

First, Second, and Third Place winners will be chosen by Steven S. DeKnight, Director of Pacific Rim Uprising!

Plus, don't miss our livestream with Director Steven S. DeKnight on 5/23 at 1:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time.

realistic computer art made from expensive animation equipment wins, every contest, every time.
so boring and predictable!

How about style, movement, uniqueness, who designed the best Jaeger,
you would never pick impressionistic or black and white, the only kool one up there is The Atom Bear, because he doesn't look like a mirror image of all the others!

the contest says you can even win if you click and drag your Jaeger in front of your backyard yet you didn't even pick one of those. Most of us can't afford big expensive computers and animation equipment, why do you have to be rich to win?

I think you don't get it, i understand your reaction, and honestly i feel a bit of the same, but if you read the rules carefully you basically have to understand that you do not even have the property of your own artwork anymore, even if you're not in the 25 semi finalist.

The instant someone decided to enter this contest had to understand that Universal owned the copyright of their artwork, now they've a huge database of concepts to work from, for a very cheap price...
I mean, we're talking about Universal.... it's not like $12,705 is a lot of money for them, it's nothing... and there was hundreds of entries...

That was their goal in the first place, and obviously they were expecting this kind of artworks, predictable, like you said.

ANYWAY...

Even though you're clearly getting angry at the results, you've got to understand that there is no reason in the world for them to pick amateur artwork compared to professionals skilled enough to produce a concept that would "fit in the pacific rim universe" Aka "able to fit in their concept art database" it's THEIR contest, not YOURS.
They are the judges, they pick the artworks.

And also, you don't need a 10k$ computer to produce an artwork of high quality, it's more about time and dedication, fundamentals in general, and yes probably a tiny bit of originality.

If you wish to enter these kind of contest and eventually win, now you know what you've got to work on, what kind of style is pretty much "sure" to win etc..

If this is something you definitely refuse to achieve, then i don't see the point of trying to impress an industry when this same industry is clearly not your cup of tea.

anyway, even though i wasn't picked, i'm happy i participated, in the end it pushed me to produce something i'm not used to, and i'm happy to see a giant Jaeger fighting a Kaiju in my library now ^^

The same judges pick the same art style every time, It doesn't matter what kind of contest it is or what the theme is.
I asked  before I entered if I should paint just the character fighting a monster with a city behind it, and they said the focus of the contest was the Jaeger in your hometown and it can be any style you want, yet they didn't pick that, they picked what they always pick, realistic animation. They shouldn't say any artform if all they want is animation, they should say "all we want is animation or they should follow their own rules and be fair.

I'm not going to change my art style for a contest that you can't win because you don't have the money for animation equipment.

Its interesting.... I was under the impression this was more of a design contests so I did mine from head to toe. Atom Bear is the only one where it seems they listened to their own rules.  I also figured someone that lives in the country surrounded by trees is not going to win this contests because all pacific rim is based in city areas. I don't know if its wrong or right but a lot of the winners are professional artists they already have the resources to make amazing digital art.  Im sure there are a lot of people that wish they could win so they could take that money and put it into their art it would be awesome to see a poor artist win. A traditional artist would never win one of these. Mine was originally traditional so I forced myself to re-learn digital. Some of the designs have the same feel as the original Jaegers that's not so fun.  I felt the idea behind the contest was to make the Jaegers more personal by making it unique to yourself and where your from.  I didnt know we could do action shots!!! I could go on. Im not upset just confused... The semi-finalists and everyone did some amazing work. It seems like DA doesn't follow their rules to closely.

so true, and I  like what you said: why just the art with city backgrounds when the contest is about these heroes in your personal hometown? and it's boring to just see realistic all the time. think out of the box DA. In my opinion, making your own style is what should count, and movement and those qualities are what should be considered when choosing finalists.

Yes I agree. I appreciate your comments. I know DA is saying they keep things open and fair. I find it hard to trust that.   By the way I don't think Moonyeah understands the real point of this discussion its really about DA following their own rules. He does make some good points that should be considered but it feels a little off topic. Sadly DA always chooses that one style when it seems they keep it open.  There are so many different types of styles out there. What if someone designed their Jaeger out of paper mache and it was brilliantly designed and they made a cool shot with it in their hometown.

I think this is going to be the most stressful 5 days of my life, just waiting for the 25 semi-finalists to be announced.
I've done other contests (not on here), but just waiting with nothing to distract me is going to be nerve raking. There're SO MANY amazing pieces.

Good luck to everyone who got their entry in for review!
