Ever look at the original StarCraft character portraits and think, "Pfft, I can make a cool one like that!" Well, now’s your chance! You can become immortalized in StarCraft: Remastered, and all you need to do is create your very own StarCraft portrait. The selected winner will have their portrait incorporated in StarCraft: Remastered to be used by the community!
Here’s how it works:
You have from now until August 17th to submit your portrait. We are looking for re-imagined or entirely new portraits that are inspired by StarCraft, be they gritty, dark or ridiculous *looks at SCV*. Feel free to get creative!
Once all submissions have been collected, the StarCraft: Remastered Design team will consider each of them to be presented as finalists in the contest. Once their analysis is complete, the selections will be published as a collection of the best artwork for the community to vote on.
Community Choice Winners:
The voting period will take place from August 28th until September 4th. At which point the community will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite portrait via a poll. Then, on September 7th, we will announce the Top 10 winners, who will each receive the following epic loot:
- Top 5: A signed copy of StarCraft: Remastered
- Top 10: A shirt of their choosing (Protoss, Zerg or Terran)
Dev Team's Choice Winner:
In addition to the Community Choice winners discussed above, the Dev team will also choose their personal favorite from amongst the finalists. This portrait will then be implemented directly into the StarCraft: Remastered client for players to select and use as their own throughout the game. If they have not already done so, this winner will also be awarded with a signed copy of StarCraft: Remastered and a shirt of their choosing (race).
Here’s what we need:
All entries must be submitted to the SCcontest@blizzard.com email by 11:59 p.m. on August 17th PDT. Participants can submit up to three portraits, but only one may be selected. Your portrait will need to be 448x480px to be considered. Please include the following in your submission:
