Well...crap I went beyond 5 shades of grey ages ago but screw it i'm entering anyway. This is Bioshock with a twisted children's story book style.

#1, ?

Great box, but, if there are more than 5 colors it's not a valid entry.

#4, Technically there are no actual colours but you weren't clear on the black and white rule so it's up to you.

#5 So by that theory, technically this is one of the first boxes on the site that uses NO colours at all :o

That alone should get some sort of reward.

i searched about whether black and white where colors and they said they where but hey what do i know...lol but anyways good box

Black and white do count. They are in the example entry and I said that different shades of gray/etc wouldn't work...

I removed the entry. You can reapply the tag if you reduce the colors.

Technically, if you printed this box out in CMYK, it would be only one "color": black (or key in CMYK terms). White shouldn't even count because white is the color of the paper.

But if we're talking about RGB colorspace here, yeah, it has too many shades of white/black.

Great job though, ADFD. So beautiful!

#23, I'm not sure that's fair, but I guess I'll leave it to the community to decide. Most of the faves were for the original...

Regardless, though, the entries need to forever be valid. So if you're planning to change back to the original, then this can't be part of the contest.

let`s be the killjoy. sure, congrats to you... it is a unique one too, but the quality is a real pain. Just changing a box into a line drawing is a pretty cheap way to get a result with two colors only. Don´t get me wrong, but you did not even put enough efford into it to reduce the loss of quality. I think there where better, more clear ones...

BTW: The black in the palette is a diffrent one than the black on the box ;) The box got 040404 and the other one got 000000. The one in the reflection is 020202. And is it true UK packages (I do think it is one) got the "German Nintendo" address on the back?

Did the other elements, like Wii-logo, reflection and background, count as well? Just asking ´cause there are a bit more colors than. Sure it`s just 1-2% diffrent, but it`s still a diffrent color. O__o The whole CMYK and RGB stuff is confusing within this contest. After all every printed package is "4"- colors only (CMYK) unless it got some special colors like silver, gold, etc.

#39, lol, You áre really precise, aren't you.

[ Reply ]


avatar
wasa-bi 7 [ 7 years ago ]

#40, just ´cause the "5 colors" can be seen from two points. if you would like to print the package you could go with cmyk and one of those special colors like pantone (or whatever you want), or you use just 5 of the special one (white does not count since it is nothing). in rgb... well...

however nobody can deny the quality is a real pain...

TheSlyder 40 [ 7 years ago ]

This is really a sticky situation with really unfair circumstances. Had everyone known we were allowed to upload a non-contest restricted box, then apply a color limitation filter to it (Which severely degrades its quality) and then WIN the contest due to the original box (Which wasn't eligible for contest entry) then I'm sure everyone would've done this.

I don't think very many people would be willing to favorite or value the second version of this box, which is grainy, unsubstantial, and overall badly presented. It's more than clear that most of the favorites that went to this box were due to the original version.

I love it, ADFD, but it's not fair to the other contestants.

Reed 33 [ 7 years ago ]

#42, That's what I was getting at and asked about (Re: #26), but no one had a problem with it. There were a bunch of favorites for version 2 and I don't think it was in the MasterWorks until v2. It was only a day after.

avatar
alldreamsfalldown 49 [ 7 years ago ]

I know version 2 is crappy quality and it was a quick attempt to re enter the contest. i'm just as suprised as anyone else. In my defense, i got more than 50% of faves after the update.

wasa-bi 7 [ 7 years ago ]

I don`t think it is unfair ´cause everyone was free to make it that way - or was there a rule against it? However I do think quality should be part of judging the contestants and... well you know the deal about this one ;)

About your defense: You got 178 "fans"... "Fans" do fav almost everything the artist is posting ;)

GlowBlue 43 [ 7 years ago ]

#42, Well, sure anyone could take a normal box and then run a color filter to reduce it to just 5 colors... but it may not look so good. I don't think that method violates the rules in anyway. Personally, I tried to avoid that shortcut in my design and I'm happy with the way my box turned out. I didn't win, but then that's not really the point for me.

Hawt Es 38 [ 7 years ago ]

I think there should be a group of experienced level 9+ judges next time. Not hating on the work. It's one of the best submitted and far better than my piece submitted for this. I just think the way the winner was chosen is one sided.

Come on, the Fav+ system?

deiviuxs 46 [ 7 years ago ]

As I said in the forums, the Fav+ system to decide a winner is a cheap and unfair way to go.

I was wondering why this kept comming up in the "random HoF" spot, perhaps i sohuld learn to read!!! Anyway, congrats ADFD, i always like your work and its good to see you rise above many others to win the contest. Congrats again! (and i'll also fav it this time too, do'h!)

EDIT: BTW its for the version 1 of the box, i'm afraid i wasn't a fan of second version.

Agree with GlowBlue. NOT FAIR WINNING. Made a multicolor B&W box post it as 5 colored than got lot of favs than after two days change back to 5 colors with the color filter.. C'mon. I think MARKER is the true winner. Whatever....

Ayron 47 [ 7 years ago ]

#50, you can jump high or low, but with the current system, Onn is far from winning.

I don't doubt the effort and creative geniousness that this design holds, nor do i doubt the victory being fair.
Adfd won, and he deserved it, whether people like it or not.
People discussing over his victory only makes it a two-sides victory, where Adfd is happy about his victory, but may feel as if it wasn't deserved.
Point: Close the discussion. ;)

Once more, congratulations my friend. you've earned it.

Why is everyone so pissed off that this won, so who cares that he had to edit it after submitting it, to get it to fit the requirements, as long as it was before the deadline, which it was. This won fair and square, and I think most people who are complaining are just mad that theirs did not win. Congratulations by the way ADFD.

#56, You most obviously haven't read the competition thread ;).
In the 5color competition, each different shade counts as a different color. Hence the commotion on this box.

This is not too bad. Perhaps could have done with a couple of other tweaks like having the official nintendo seal in gold to break up the monotone, but otherwise a very nicely constructed effort.

#65, This was for a 5 colour competition, meaning only 5 colours were allowed, therefore alldreamsfalldown couldn't have made the official Nintendo seal gold.
