Hi again! As you can already see from the title, this post is to announce the 2nd Fan-made skin concepts Contest. I’m still super grateful that last year’s Contest had hundreds of concepts, thousands of voters and a few dev responses regarding the contest! However, there are a lot of (requested) changes to this year’s contest. One of them is that I NEED YOU to submit the concepts that YOU like in order for me to make the polls (unlike last year when I collected all the concepts that I could find to make the polls). Keep reading to know how to submit the concepts that you like (you DON’T have to be the artist of the concepts to submit them).
But first, for the newcomers and the ones who didn’t know about my last year’s contest:
The reason I originally held last year’s contest:
I invited the devs to join “Heroes of the Storm Community” on Facebook and see my fan-made skin concept arts album there (which consists of HotS’ skin concepts all over the Internet) in the latest AMA. And Andrew Kinabrew replied: “We're always looking. These are fun ideas! However, need to see a demonstration from the community that a single skin is wanted. 146 concepts is nice but that doesn't narrow anything down to a single community favorite. Please rally behind a concept so that we have a better gauge of what the community likes.” (He is a really talented 3D artist. He made Dark Nexus Deathwing, Cuddle Bear Stiches, Alexstraza's Dragon Form and most importantly JANITOR LEORIC! (and many more awesome work, you can see some of his work here)).
The reason I continue to hold this year’s contest:
u/Blizz_KinaBREW said just 2 months ago: “Concepts that come from the community are awesome and many concepts the community have come up with are frequently talked about in our skin pack meetings. One of the highest voted skins in one of the last community voted polls was C'thun Probius. Super cool idea. Slotting it in a skin pack is something we still would like to do. Know that we are talking about things like this often.” Original dev comment.
And we know that the devs are in the planning stage of what they’re going to do for 2021: https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthestorm/comments/g96brg/heroes_of_the_storm_ama_april_30_2020/fp2ypqh?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x
So we can help them find a highly-requested fan-made skin to make for 2021.
Here is an example of what this year’s polls are going to look like (The concepts shown in this poll were the winners/top 10 concepts of last year’s contest and won’t be able to participate in this year’s contest, so please don’t submit them.): https://forms.gle/iCkYSDX9fWC39KZ9A
The first Round of the Contest is Submission: In this Round, you will submit the concepts that you like, then I will create polls with those concepts for the community to vote in the future. Submission Round will end on Sunday, June 28th 2020 (around 5:00 a.m PDT/ 2:00 p.m CEST). The second Round that contains the first poll will be announced on Monday, June 29th 2020 (around 5:00 a.m PDT/ 2:00 p.m CEST).
Click this link to submit the concepts you like (if you don’t have any concept in mind, you can click the link to see the concepts other people submitted and find your favorite ones so that it will be much quicker for you to vote for the concepts you like in the (future) polls. The page will be constantly updated with new concepts, so make sure to visit it once in a while): https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthestorm/comments/hd6el2/2nd_annual_heroes_of_the_storm_fanmade_skin/

(If you have time, please share the link with your HotS friends, HotS fan pages that you know and upvote, comment on this post so that more people can see it.) 🙂
(If you think this contest is useless because it doesn’t get much attention, then don’t worry. I don’t just post the poll here, but I also post the poll on the game's official Forum and on Facebook. And the devs are definitely going to see this.)
