Mission Two: International Servbot Collaboration

Over at 100,000 for Bringing Back Legends 3’s International Translation base, Amunshen, one of our Japanese translators, has relayed a message to us western Servbots from the Kobun involved with One More DASH!, the campaign for Japan’s Legends 3 revival movement.

The intent of this campaign is to present the enthusiasm of the Legends fanbase and viability of Legends 3’s revival in visual form.  O.S., the Kobun who proposed the campaign, wishes to make a collaborative collage using Servbot artwork from all of the registered Devroom members around the world.

—————————
Many fans are gathering on sites like Facebook and Tanomi to promote the revival of Legends 3.  Now we’re holding a campaign that’s a little bit different.  We will be visually expressing the fans’ desire to get Mega Man Legends 3 back into production!

The goal of  “Servbot Collaboration” is to make a large picture using everyone’s own Servbot artwork. If a lot of Servbots are gathered, it will look impressive and visually express the large number of people who desperately want MML3 at a glance. This collaboration could potentially serve as a symbolic illustration to represent all of the future revival campaigns as well!

Are you really bad at art? Don’t worry about it! We also have a template for those who cannot draw, so please feel free to contribute even if you aren’t confident about your artwork!

The more people who send us artwork, the harder I have to work on compositing them into one large image, but I REALLY DON’T MIND!  I want you guys to submit so many Servbots that I nearly drop dead from overwork!!

☆How to Create and Submit Servbot Art☆ 

For this campaign, I want every participant to make a drawing of a Servbot using the following template. We have separate templates for people who can draw as well as for people who are less confident in their abilities, so feel free to choose the one that best suits your skill level.

Here’s how to fill your template out:

① – Participant’s name

You may either use an online alias or your real name.  However, if you do choose to submit using your real name, we cannot be held responsible for anything that may happen as a result.

② – Servbot Art

Either draw your own Servbot in this space, or give your Servbot a face, depending on what template you are using.  You don’t have to follow the official Servbot design, just like in the Devroom.  If you have a Devroom Servot number, please write it in this space, too–but the number has to actually be yours!  We will not publish any inappropriate material, such as overly violent, graphic, or otherwise inappropriate content, so keep it E-rated.

③ – Comment

Write a brief message expressing the passion you have for bringing back Legends 3, or an introduction showing what the game means to you.  As with the image field, submissions containing hostile or inappropriate comments and language will be denied. In order to properly express our passion for this game, we should keep it classy.

Any font style or size is okay as long as it’s legible.

『Template for Artists 』

『Template for Non-Artists 』

Please save your preferred template image in its original size and draw or modify your Servbot using whichever art software you prefer.

『How to Submit 』

1 – E-mail

Send an E-mail to dash3_kobun@yahoo.co.jp with your submission attached.  In the event that your image file is over 1MB, please compress the file into .ZIP format.  Include【kobun_g】in your subject line when you send.

2 – Twitter/Twitpic

Send the completed Servbot art through an image-uploading site such as Twitpic or Yfrog.

When you upload the Servbot art through your tweet, please include “@One_More_DASH” and hashtag “#kobun_g” as shown below.

Here is the link for Twitpic, for anyone who is unfamiliar with it.  Other image-uploading sites are okay too.

[3 – Facebook (Added by Amunshen)

Upload the image wherever possible.  Please post the URL to the image in the comments section of this note for Amunshen to give to O.S. directly.]  DO NOT USE THIS BLOG TO SUBMIT AN ENTRY!

Please send the image in JPEG or GIF format. Do NOT resize the templates or modify the background. We cannot use the image if it has been resized or its background is modified.
We do not allow multiple submissions from one person, but we will allow multiple Servbots in one image.  If we don’t get enough submissions by the closing date, we might accept multiple entries.  In this case, you will be notified, so stay tuned!

Once you submit, that’s it.  Due to the nature of the collaboration, you are not permitted to revise your entry.  If you really, REALLY want to resend, make sure to comment on the Facebook note with [Resubmission] at the start of your comment.

The final product will premiere on the One-more-DASH hub, and subsequently be released for public viewing, so please be aware that any information you put into your submission will be displayed in public.

We don’t mind at all if you want to use your submitted Servbot image for other personal projects, but we would appreciate it if you mention the Legends 3 revival movement along with it!

  1. This sounds great! I would really like to do one, but it may be tricky for me because although I can draw decently with a pencil, I can’t draw worth a crap with a mouse. So I may see if it would be possible for me to scan a picture that I will draw in and put it on the template.

  2. Uh oh, here we go again. And I’m already having to splice a bunch of stoof together for a special someone, ugh.

    I’ll still get it done though. One way or another. I’ll have fun with it. ;D

  3. Dear Dashe,

    There is an easier way to get those templates, you can add it as a forth way .
    Just start a new thread in the general disscussion fourm and let people submit their templates there . we can hit two stones with this as people will go there by default to get a servbot number anyways 😉
    also saves some people the privacy concerns .

  4. Servbot 302, here!

    I just sent mine in via e-mail – thanks for posting this up.

    I hope it’s not a problem that the picture portion of my submission has a blue backdrop instead of a white one – it was a necessity for the design. 😛

      • Thanks Dashe – that’s what I figured. 🙂 I haven’t touched the background at all – it’s just that what once was white in the middle box, now is blue.

        If you start a thread on Capcom-Unity for this, will those of us who have already sent ours in be ok to post them there, too, or will that be for un-sent submissions only?

  5. So, guessing from the Chat here, we can also submit our servbot templates via the Thread at the Devroom? I’d prefer to use that method. (I’d rather not use E-mail if I don’t have to because of privacy issues, and I don’t have a Twitter/Facebook account)

  6. Dear Dashe,
    I have an suggestion that will boost our status greatly. we can countinue on the one at hand right now (templates) and start with the other also, though I don’t know how to start it well, here goes : the unity’s Megaman group is 33000+ members, if we could convice them just to check-in to our group (they’re all signed already) we’ll be 4th or 3rd in no time rather than fighting our way up ever so slow, 10-50 members a day at best . If you know anyone influential in that group it’ll help a lot .. or any who can promote this idea. so .. what do you think .
