Over the past few weeks, we've seen an excellent response to the new Alt Avatars. We've also seen a number of amazing ideas for them. That's why we are hosting the first Community Designed Alt Avatar Contest! The rules are simple: give us your best idea for a new Alt Avatar for the hero of your choosing, we'll lower it down to the top 5, and the community will vote for which one they would like to have added to the game.
The winner will have his/her Alt Avatar added to the game, will be given their Alt Avatar for free, and will be rewarded with 1,000 Goblin Coins to spend in the Store!
We ask that you do not submit any copyrighted material and that you only submit one idea. If you submit more than one, you will be disqualified.
Submission judging will begin as soon as we feel there are enough entries to judge- in other words, don't wait too long to submit your idea!
Best of luck to everyone! We look forward to seeing all of your creative ideas!
EDIT: Please submit your ideas in this thread. You can use any method you would like- written description, art, etc. We are looking for the Alt Avatar concept, but it's always good to show off your idea the best you can .

At first I thought fountain shoot meatball.
Sounds awesome! Quick question, do the avatars need to be the same model with just a different skin? Or can we "Magmus" it up and create whole new models?
Someone get to work on Lucksmith! Its not my idea at all, but make a blacksmith leprechaun skin! Would be so funny to see a little leprechaun running around the battlefield throwing pots of gold at the enemy and using leprechaun magic to stun them. Ult is Luck of the Irish of course!
Sounds awesome! I'll have to think of something good
sounds awesome. I'll definitely submit something. Saving this spot for later

how do we submit them? shall we only write down the idea of one or shall we really create a picture of what we mean? or shall we create the complete skin as a honmod or so?
Hmmm... I'll have to think about this...
Got it: Alien Andromeda
It'd be the typical "little green men" type alien. Green skin, gender ambiguous, big head with big black eye (or slits). The animations would be completely different. It would walk instead of float, the attack animation could be firing a little laser gun, Meteor could either still be a meteor or maybe some kind of freeze-ray type thing. Aurora could stay the same, or maybe even have a spaceship fly over the area or leading the aurora effect. And her Ult really wouldn't have to change much. If I recall, there is some kind of swapping animation that plays, so change that with a Teleporter; put a glowing disk on the ground under both heroes for a couple seconds when it's used.
I'll attach some pictures to better illustrate my ideas for the animations.

OBS: Not my image, it's just a reference.
Since my Dream hero probably won't get implemented, make Soul Reaper a female angel/demon hybrid. Her natural form would be the angel, but while Withering Presence is active, her appearence would "pulse" between angel and demon.
Judgement: Little angelic creatures or white wisps sent to heal allied units and little demons or dark wisps to damage enemies.
Inhuman Nature: Make the souls of the affected units ascend, like some kind of redemption.
Demonic Execution: Fits beautifully as it is.

Saving a spot for Disco Pharaoh. Working on illustration.
White suit, platform shoes, fedora style hat or Afro, SEQUINS!
Hellfire = blinky floor lights like in Saturday Night Fever
Mummies = Bouncers
Tortured Soul = flying disco ball. Explodes in glitter and confetti
Wrath of the Pharaoh (Wrath of the Dance Floor) = pelvic thrust > fires streamers > Pharaoh is pulled along in classic right-arm-pointing-to-the-sky fashion.
BTW: Are there requirements for illustrations or are well worded descriptions good enough?
