I wonder if this has ever been done, maybe a major consisting of pixel , photomash, ascii, visuall, etc ? It would be cool I think .... people would have time to do a big piece if they wanted to ... you could maybe include html and other formats that don't happen very much.

Of the majors I have entered / seen, there has been some of these categories available but not all of them. I mean, advent calendar was a thing, but it was pretty different than just having a battle consisting of these formats ...

I'm super interested to know about this, and see more of these visual entries, majors, battles, etc ...I wonder what you guys think.

the government is simply too scared of a 200 hour tael ascii

looking forward to seeing the entries!

would be cool to see a major comprised only of "all or at least most of the visual formats", i agree! it's good that they get some representation in the big ones but that's different than visual art being the focus.

my first thought is that it'd be cool as a monthly major, not sure though

I concur! We have enough visual formats to certainly have an interesting major >:D

i've been clamoring for graphx 2 for a year atp, that was without a doubt the most interesting battle botb has ever had for the sole purpose of it breaking the trend of all majors being musical. having it become a series would be mega kino in my books, and that's not just because i'm a huge visual junkie too; people showed up for visuall and photomash last advent calendar, there is an audience for this stuff.

It seems like there are quite a few people on Botb who create visuals of some kind, they just miss some of the battles ... it is also an understandable amount of pressure to create a piece in an hour / few hours / average battle time. This is why some people only enter the major battles .. so a graphics major would be cool for this.

Needs a BattleHymn token audio format tho (maybe just allgear in disguise, or some other format depending on battle theme). On the other hand it'd be kinda neat to enjoy voting in silence, for a change :o

im pretty sure GraphX II will happen at some point.

the more interesting question is, if theres a good way to further publish winning gfx entries. music format winners go onto bandcamp releases, battle art winner is the album cover. but pixel winners etc just sit in their battle and thats it. is there a good place of sharing visuals like there is bandcamp for music?

there's gumroad which is very much just bandcamp for anything and everything.
