Everything is so vague that I don't like how it sits with me. This seems like a way for them to get something completely for free, and cut the creator from the picture. Allowing them to alter, skew, and freely use the item without crediting, or compensation whatsoever if they were to use it on a larger scale. People get paid big bucks to make things like this. I'm not saying I'd want tons of money if I got chosen, but the credit and recognition when it is used would be desired, ESPECIALLY if it were used nationally. When I first started reading I thought it sounded like a blast, but when I saw the guidlines I decided it may not be worth it at all. Being chosen could be more upsetting than fufilling. Watching my art being taken from me.

This sounds like it could be fun. I'll go ahead and give it a shot, and see if I can come up with anything I like.

Woah! I thought I was really optimistic and cynical person, but look at some of the replies here

Chill guys and girls, it's for fun. Those who are bored will draw something _for fun_. Maybe you get mentioned when they post which artist's pictures they took, but if not it's their choice... It's not like anyone submitting is a professional artist, haha.

Relax people, listen Sean and enjoy !

The complaints are silly, comes from the mindset "they're always out to get us!". Being able to say "Some art I did was adopted by a commercial website as their official image" is great for reputation. Not to mention CR has done a lot for me, so I am always looking for ways to return the favor.

The lack of specifying "boundaries" on this contest makes me ponder several questions, but I'll assume I can submit multiple entires and the type of content doesn't matter as long as it's original (abstract logo or magical girl, it will all be judged equally).

I'll consider joining in. But I'm a bit slow, so I'm not sure what I'll have ready.

Cynicism is a little bit necessary on the internet, especially with how screwed up the legal system is, etc. I blame no one for being pessimistic/ questioning of this situation. It's very vague and so far the only compensation is bragging rights and hoping the person you're bragging to believes you.
I feel this "contest" exists to make some people bitter.
I feel everyone here is just well contesting the contest.

This is really insulting, Crunchyroll. :angry:

If you guys want a mascot, fine! Hire an actual PROFESSIONALS to do it for you. Don't be lazy and cheap by calling having amateur drawers create an original character for nothing in return.

I'm going to school to earn my degree in Communication Arts so that I can have a paying career doing advertisment and/or concept art (which may include character design). There are many scholarships and magazine contests that I can enter which the winners or runners up are garented something of material value including notoriety .

Hell, even DeviantArt gives non-professionals not only notoriety but some sort of payment while also making sure than no except the artist
touch the work.

Unless there is contract or an actual prize, I refuse to call this scam you guys are trying to pull off as a contest.

I already put down my main beef that this is basically spec work that results in hours wasted. The lack of returns is further insult to the artists. The proper way should have been to simply call for a submission of portfolio and choose someone from there to do it for a fee.

To those of you saying that having your artwork all over the website is good and provides exposure, may I also add that the exposure you are getting is simply: "I work for free"

.__. no compensation... uh, nope. It's kinda like designing a logo. Just a picture will not work.
Nty. Just because you aren't a professional artist/ in creative development or design fields doesn't mean you can't produce equal quality.
