Robot Day 2021 Winners

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!

Congrats to the winners! Glad to see you chose animation, music and illustration, but I also was expecting to see some games (even if there were not many), but you are the boss and you know best (and choosing for only 3 places it's hard).

I will take note from all this pieces to come with something cool next year.

So much robo goodness, fantastic!

Lots of lovely pieces!

many masterpieces were made during this event!

Thank you so so much! I can’t wait till next year!

Thanks so much for your the supporter and mention! Already looking forward to the next robot day :)

LET'S GOOOOO!

Aww man, quite a bummer. Kudos to the winners though!

Lots of cool entries! congratz to the winners.

Well it fuckin sucks that I didnt win but good job to the winner they did very goof

*good

These are all so wonderful! I didn't get to see a bunch of these at first, totally gonna dive in now. Thank you for holding this event, definitely gonna draw something for it next year too.

Thanks a lot man !
Well deserved first places.
Glad to be in the close calls.
Very nice pieces among honorable mentions.
And last but not least : Great work to everyone who took part on this event.

You know what? I don't even care anymore. You're the just another perfect example of putting the popular before actual hardworking artists who struggle. Also the fact that every other artist was an after thought in the honorable mentions before I said something fits exactly what I'm talking about.

Can't wait to see the same artist win next year and I will only enter just to remind you of your mistake. The fact you can't even stand up to me and say something to me proves me right as fucking usual with these type of contests. Screw the common starving/struggling artists I guess.

If you hate me. Good, I ain't another sheep who's going to clap when I see inconsistencies in people's list on how they vote.

no one hates you.

@Garnet-Frost

Objectively wrong.

@Garnet-Frost Mate I started joining Robot day way back in 2012.It wasn't until 2015 until my work started to take notice even and it was total garbage back then, believe me. Then after that I slowly started to appear in honorable mentions. By 2019 I made the site skin for Robot day.

But this is not even the point of Robot day. The whole point is to get together and make some funky content involving all kinds of bots. This whole event had started as something silly that Mindchamber and co. made up back in the day.

I don't know what you expect but NG has more content than ever with the recent influx of users and like Mindchamber said, it's getting harder judge all the entries. I don't know if you have noticed but a few popular artists are in the same category as you .And the 1st place winner is not a regular participant at all.

Funny how this isn't the first competition you have whined about. If you only care about winning some cash then man up and grind or stop participating in these events at all

Everyone else on the other hand did a fantastic job. @Ozrk kills it again with some stellar artwork!

@ThePsychoSheep "The whole point is to get together and make some funky content involving all kinds of bots." Yeah, Newground robots like I-Bot and P-Bot, but screw everybody else's original characters. All I want is to feel like a somebody, like I didn't wasted my time and each time people like you and your friend take that away from me.

The fact that some of the people here compared my OC to Transformers characters hurts even more. You'll never know my pain because you and your friends can glide on by on easy mode while excluding others. First place isn't a regular participant, but got put above everybody else on the list.

I'll never stop participating if it means getting back at those who wronged me and I'm a woman. The fact you felt the need to disrespect my identity on top of all this. I'm just so hurt right now and you'll never understand that.

W00t, thanks for the shout out, I had great fun doing this. Happy robots!

@Garnet-Frost .

"Yeah, Newground robots like I-Bot and P-Bot, but screw everybody else's original characters."

Literally all the 3 prize entries have nothing to do with NG Characters. The ones that do are runner ups and honorable mentions

"All I want is to feel like a somebody, like I didn't wasted my time and each time people like you and your friend take that away from me."

Tough shit. What makes you think you put more effort than all the other participants? Yeah my sole goal in this contest is to crush your efforts and I have my imaginary mafia gang to back me up. Imagine actually believing this

"You'll never know my pain because you and your friends can glide on by on easy mode while excluding others."

Yes I pressed the magical button to make things easier for me instead literally describing to you in my last comment how I had to grind my way for years to reach the point to where I am.

"I'll never stop participating"

That's great. Either you will improve both in skill and personality and make something really cool or you will fail miserably and whine again....and I will laugh again.

I'll stop posting because its hilarious how much of a tantrum you are throwing for losing a competition
