The Backstage: Alternative Entries!

60 posts in this topic

Have you ever made more than one customization for a previous contest? Were you ever late for a contest but still wished you could share your idea anyway?
In this topic, you can do just that!

 

Show us your alternative entries :D

 

Let me begin with my alternative entry for the Winter Ball contest:

I don't really have a story for this one. I just wanted to try and do a male customization since I do females 95% of the time.

This is my alternative entry for the current contest (Neopia's Newest Faerie):

 

The Dimensional Faerie

Although I had fun coming up with this one, I decided not to enter it because it kind of hurts my eyes. lol

I actually REALLY like that one. It would have gotten my vote for sure. I love that background with the design.

These would have been my entries for Elephante Extravaganza and Back to School, respectively:

"Ms. Mynstrow is glad to see her students again. She has asked them to write about their Holidays and the best story will be featured in The Neopian Times!"

So I ended up making two.  I wasn't happy with them at first and then it was too late to enter.  But now I like them.  lol

Was late for the Valentine Gnorbu contest! Here was my (un-sent) submission:

It's supposed to give a "Valentine's at the place where we met" vibe, but it's not very Valentine-y itself.

 

(Click on the image for the outfit page! There's nothing really animated except for the thought bubble.)

The elephante is so lovely ~<3

This is sort of a rough draft to what I originally wanted to do for the Gnorbu Valentine round, but I didn't want to accidentally offend anyone or cause some controversy... :worried:

Here's the animation link since the image version looks kind of weird: http://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1110804

 

I can understand why you didn't enter it. I personally would have voted for this since I support Gay Pride

This is a funny coincidence. My entry is a cloud gnorbu with the valentine makeup. Even though you didn't get yours in in time, I think yours are great.

This is great, I think it's pretty and I love the way the clothes and hair go with the chocolate coloration

Do you have the link to the outfit page for this? I think it looks amazing, and I would love to see the items used for this customization (and the animation!).

So pretty much immediately after I submitted my entry into the aquatic contest, I challenged myself to see if I could do any better.

 

And while I wanted my first ever attempt to be my entry, I'm actually really proud of how my alternate came out, so, why not post it here?  :laughingsmiley:

Who knew little Claire -- child explorer of abandoned, sunken ships -- would one day have a fleet of her own... And challengers of sailors and landlovers alike, all seeking the honor of saying they fought her and lived! [outfit link here]

 

This was a lot of fun! I think if I enter again next time, I'll make a bunch and pick my favorite tho xD

It's been a while since I've posted here!

 

St. Patrick's Day:

Dream Pet:

I really really want a Transparent Wocky! :wub_anim:
I don't have the perfect custom yet, but I think this one is sort of going in the right direction. I want something with a certain "cheshire cat" vibe.

 

Springtime:

Ms. Camellia is off to sell flower balloons at the Spring Fair. The kids love them!
