Is there nothing cooler than knowing something you made is in a piece of media? Whether that be TV, Movies, Music, or Video Games? It’s just a thrill to know that something you did is being seen by others. For the MOBA Master X Master, they want a lucky gamer to feel that excitement, for they’re starting a contest for an artist to help make a skin for one of their characters: Lua.
The MXM Master Skin Design Contest will let you try and show your creativity by making a potential Master Skin for the character Lua, and yes, that means it’ll be selectable in-game. So, what do you have to do to enter? Let us break it down for you.
It doesn’t matter whether your art submission is hand-drawn of digital, as long as it’s complete. The team notes they’re judging you on the design of the skin, not the quality of the art. Now, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try your hardest to make it look the best you can, just know that it’s not the only thing they’re looking for. In fact, to help you, they even offer this template of Lua:
You don’t have to draw your designs over this, but it may help you get certain features marked out. One note, you WILL need to draw a front and back view of the skin. So be sure to account how it’ll look from both these angles. Also, your final design may be tweaked a bit once it gets in-game. It just depends on what the team has to do with it to make it look and feel right on Lua. The team encourages you to share any notes you have on your skins, they would love to see how you came up with the idea, or why you think it’s a perfect skin for Lua.
The Master X Master team will pick the 5 best from the submissions, then the community will select the grand prize winner. That winner will not only get their design put into the game, but they’ll also receive their skin for free once it’s made, get a Master’s Founder Pack, a keyboard and mouse by Corsair, and an exclusive t-shirt.
All submissions must be provided by May 14th, and the team laid out what you need to provide in the submission.
