MindChamber's News

Posted by MindChamber - 1 month ago


Ok Folks, This get harder every year, so Ill say again what I said last year:

"Just know I understand and appreciate the work that went into every submission, and if you didn't get placed just know this is all subjective, and I hope you had fun creating and keep creating."


Ok Lets hop on to the Winners

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Place:

Shemmet's little series of a "Couple of Robot Boys" had me watching them over and over.. They're just little moments, in the lives of these two robot friends, but they are extremely well done, and make me want to know more about these guys. Here's hoping Shemmets makes more of them.!



2nd Place:

Quarl hits us over the head with another amazing banger!

It doesn't particularly tell a story, that's up to you.

its this soundscape vibe that's perfect for letting your imagination run wild in.


3rd Place:

Ozark knocks it out of the park with another eye-catching piece..

he needs to make a comic already!


hit me up with your PayPal Addys in PM guys.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Close Calls : (1 year supporter) in no particular order


1) ThePsycoSheep's

Animated Logo Design, is the perfect example of style and effectiveness.

its eye-catching and smooth and represented Robot Day really well.

2)aki-T144 nice fantasy feel, catching some Moebius vibes too!

3)MrPakoMan hitting us with that Max Fleisher-styled P-Bot!! Gotta Singa';

4) LexRodent & LuckyDee whipped up something a bit different, Bluesy yet still had that rustic Robot feel.

I could easily see this as a credits song in such Robot Western games such as SteamWorld Dig

5)Canucko Putting a light on I-Bots shy personality :3


Honorable Mentions. In no particular order


1)PsychoGoldFish I saw this and I was immediately transported back to the 80s staring at some super expensive transformers in Sears.. PG nailed the Box art aesthetic from those days perfectly.

2)Krinkles has been steading improving his craft and has just turned into this cyborg illustrating powerhouse.

all his robotic designs just keep getting more detailed and impressive every year.

3)HeavenBreak0 Obscene level of detail.. looks like a still out anime!

4)EinMeister's Mechanical Leg is intricate and possibly functional?

really great design Id like to see more of!

5)Chdonga made a fun little robot platformer where you collect junk to keep alive

Still have no idea who Clyde was though. :D

6) PredatorMusic created some really nice music that could easily be in an Epic video game

7) Garnet-Frost Brings back the TF animated style with her soothing colors and polished lines.

8)StarDustJarr entry has smooth soft colors that almost feel like its airbrushed

9)doffu0000 Intricate and symmetric design could easily be on a shirt or skateboard

10)ScepterDPinoy Pixel art is tricky and Scepter's eye for small details is envious!


This Year was kinda nuts, sorry it took longer than before to Judge, but the influx of old and new artists submitting this year has really added some breath into this contest! Already Excited for what's to come next year.


Once again if I didn't pick or mention you, it's only because I can only post so much, and only have so much money :-p

There was a lot of really cool work and everyone that submitted did a great job!

Welp here it is, Probably the last Flash game I'll be ever contributing to.. PychoGoldfish made an addictive little platform brawler with the kibble of scratch art I tossed at him.. Thanks to all the animators, musicians and artists that stepped in and helped us finish when I couldn't commit the time. You guys are my heroes.

Play the game, then give everyone of them dudes a follow ❤️

Also works better in firefox 🤜😂🤛🏽

A New Year, A New Robot Day comin'!!. Same time as Last year August 26th!


It's your chance to show your love for Artificial life in the form of art. While fan art is cool, Ill be looking for original works for the prizes.

I'll just be judging Art, animations, and games. If the turnout is lean, then Audio peeps could throw in their hat as well. Though it would work best if they collab'd with some animators or game Dev's.. Id only ask that whatever ya make, it was made between now and Robot Day: August 26th by 11:59 PM (EST)


Also, make sure to tag your work "robotday2021". So I can search for submissions


1st place ...300 bux in PayPal and a year of NG Sub

2nd place..150 bux in PayPal and 1 year of NG sub

3rd place....75 bux in PayPal and 1 year of NG sub


if you already have a Subscription to NG yourself, we can just add another year, or link me to someone that I can gift it to in your name.

..--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And for Extra Credit TaperSteve is throwing a little extra incentive to the contest .


"IN ADDITION I WILL BE ADDING

With That Said let's get on with the winners

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Place:

This game really had a little bit of everything. A refreshing Claymation style, simple but really fun mechanics, and just a great sense of humor and polish.

2nd Place:

This was super hard to pick, but Ozrks colors and style just kept me coming back. In-fact all his Robot and android designs are something to behold, please give this dude a follow.

3rd Place:

absolutely nuts rendering of p-Bot,and the fact that its hand drawn is wild, love the subtle shading in all his colors.


hit me up with your paypal Addys in PM guys.

Figure I might as well post this one early,give people some extra time. Same time as Last year August 26th!

Iet's keep it nice and tidy, Ill just be judging Art, animations and games. If the turn out is lean, then Audio peeps could throw in their hat as well. Though it would work best if they collab'd with some animators or game Dev'rs.. Since theres more time I have more breathing room to set a little more cash into this, Id only ask that whatever ya make, it was made between now and Robot Day:


Also make sure to tag your work "robotday2020". So I can search for submissions

Now Something Off-Topic but MindChamber related:


-


Over a decade ago I made a progress post showing the work that went into my MindChamber figure.. I want to use this post as my progress blog for my new Figure, which has been pretty much redesigned completely since then. The only difference is Ill be making him in 3D and printing out the pieces.. Im hoping that having Robot Day as a solid deadline, will keep me pushing foward until this bad boy is done..

Heres a really rough test print of his head.. Rotation sketches coming soon.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So keep an eye out for progress on this blog... Otherwise see ya on Robot Day!


Tiny MC Update Tried to work on the Torso this sunday, but wrestled more with my wacom drivers.. more hopefully this week..

iu_85287_48551.jpg

In the story MC Was originally designed as a Mech, but his original body doesn't represent that well.. He needs to look like almost an empty husk when hes not 'occupied' with a Pilot

Getting there:

Hey Guys!!

First I'd like to thank everyone that submitted a piece for Robot-Day.. It's a fun subject matter that is obviously near and dear to my heart, so it always is amazing to share that enthusiasm with others.. Its also a tiny way to give back to a site that still means the world to me even if I haven't been able to produce as much as I'd want to.


There were some really great submissions this year, it was tricky to settle down to 3. Just know I understand and appreciate the work that went into every submission, and if you didn't get placed just know this is all subjective, and I hope you had fun creating and keep creating.


1st ) TheDyingSun

2nd) Manunam

3rd) Quarl

[DM me your paypal email, or steam profile]

>>>>Winners Announced!<<<<<


I've been pretty bad at trying to keep this day going but I figured let's just keep pushing anyway.


I'm thinking August 26th..

Under a month before madness and several weeks after Clock day.. plus it's a Monday,so you can procrastinate right up until the weekend before!

Depending on the turnout, I'll only be judging art and animation/games this time, that way I'm not dragging out the announcement for winners, and it would be a great incentive audio guys to collaborate with an animator or game Dev.


1st place ..100 bux in PayPal or steam

2nd place..50 bux in PayPal or steam

3rd place..25 bux in PayPal or steam...


Just make sure you tag your stuff robotday2019. So I can find it..

Have fun!!


Let me know if you guys want me to make a thread in the forums

Is that something anyone is interested this year?. @tom was thinking sometime in August.. I pitched the Idea of the 26th..

Curious what anyone else thinks.Its a month away.. .. Shouldnt interfere with Clock day, and would still be a month away from Madnessday.. I could throw in some prizes too.. nothing crazy though, Lol Im on a budget.

In the meantime check out this amazing short, has robots in it!

Last Year Robot Day almost fell off the map,but thanks to the efforts of  EigiBeast, and the love and effort of a handful of artist who submitted some great work, we were able to keep RobotDay for 2017. Figured it's time I picked up the ball and ran with it this year. Its a great day that definitely deserves the push. So here we go. Let go for a 'Robot Day 2018!!
I'd like to keep the orginal day of July 10th, which only gives you two months to create, but think of the tight deadline as an opportunity to create some quality yet short, impactful art!. (always wanted to make a badass robot walkcycle? here's your chance!)

Just make sure to tag your art,cartoon, song,or game with ROBOTDAY2018
You'll notice Tom chose A Robot theme for the next round of jams. 
Consider Robot Day as a neat contest multiplier to the jam and double your chances!

As for Prizes:
1st Place: 100 RoboBux, 1 year supporter sub for NG
2nd Place:  SteamKey for a game (TBD),  1 year Supporter for NG
3rd Place: 1 year Supporter for NG

So what do you Say?  Are you guys down for some Robo-Artin"?
feel free to continue the discussion over at the forums
