As you’ve no doubt noticed in and around our community as of recent, we’ve been promoting the hawt diggity dangin’ dawg out of our latest compilation, ‘Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 7‘. And rightfully so! It’s absolutely stellar! ♬♫♪◖(●。●)◗♪♫♬
That said, the chipmusic from this year’s Volume isn’t the only part worthy of extended celebration and promotion. The Vol.7 art contest entries are equally phenomenal, and you can feast your eyes upon their collective splendor via the following convenient slideshow. To discover more amazing works from the artists, investigate the links section underneath. Enjoy! (ﾉﾟ0ﾟ)ﾉᵒᵐᵍ ＿〆(。。)
Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with yet another fun Volume 4 related announcement! Yaaaaaaaaay! ^_^
Any of y’all remember that album fanart contest that we (sorta, kinda accidentally) ran last year? You know, the one where Nate Horsfall, ChipWIN’s official BAMF of Artification, more or less hollowed out the center of his Volume 3 album art (was supposed to just be for a teaser… lolol) and let other folk take a go at making their own centerpiece? (results of such here). That was pretty gorram fun, right? Whaddaya say we do it again?
OKAY DOKEY THEN!! =D
I dunno, Nate, but I think maybe this is missing something. Can’t quite put my finger on what though….
Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here once again; this time with something new regarding the imminent “Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 3” craziness.
As always, the most excellent Nate Horsfall of lightningarts.com has designed all of the Vol.3 artwork, and, completely unsurprising, it’s all absolutely STELLAR! Among the collection this time he slipped me the following “teaser” album cover, which is suspiciously missing the entire center section:
*PARTIALLY* complete artwork by Nate Horsfall.
Which gave me a nifty idea:
WHAT IFI started up an art contest to see if anyone within the chiprealm was interested in coming up with their OWN center section for this incomplete album cover?
And if so, WHAT IF I included the top three submissions in the Volume 3 Bandcamp download when it releases?
Sounds like fun, right? Well, enough folk thought the same when I initially shared the idea in the ChipWIN Fb group on this thread. So… CONSIDER IT OFFICIALLY ON. =D
Submit your artifications/shoops/etc. via the contact form below (or just post it on the Fb thread above; either is fine) by August 3rd (about a month away from the publication date of this article) and Nate & I will pick the top three to add to the release.
On that note, GET TO ARTIN’!! ^_^
