Show your work in an iPad/Android game

If you are an artist and would like to have your work included in the Mood Analyticator, an augmented reality app for Android and iOS being exhibited at the BlackTop Festival we are seeking submissions.

The Mood Analyticator is an augmented reality app that looks into a person to see if their heart is mostly ‘good’ or mostly ‘bad’. The app is free and will be part of the Blacktop Festival held in Denver on September 29th, 2012. T-shirts have been printed with the image target and festival goers will be able to analyze their friends and strangers. When a  phone/device running this app is held up to a person, a heart will appear.

Tap the heart and you will find out if the person is ‘good’ or ‘bad’.  The heart explodes and in it’s place will appear a talisman of their ‘goodness’ or ‘badness’.  What I’m looking for are images, animations and especially 3d animations that represent good or bad to appear when the heart explodes. Download the app to see how it works.

I can accept 2D artwork or low-polygon 3D models with or without animation. When your image appears you will be credited for the artwork and in the game credits. You retain full copyright ownership of the art. By submitting a work, you must guarantee that you are the author of the work and it does not infringe on anyone else’s copyright.

Here are the specs:

2D Art and Animated Sprites

256 pixels wide X 256 pixels tall ,  as a Photoshop .psd file with a transparent (grid visible) background. A 2D sprite can be submitted as an animated sprite if you follow the directions in the example.

3D Models

5000 polygons or less. Animated and submitted in .fbx format (most 3D apps can export in .fbx). Please include any texture maps, sized appropriately for gaming devices.

Examples and Instructions


If you submit your artwork by Sept. 18th I will include it in the app. The Android app will be immediately updated and will be ready for the festival. The iOS app will be submitted, and it should be approved in time for the festival, but that is up to Apple.
