Skills Contest

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 2, 2013, 5:00 PM


Okay I've been wanting to do a contest for a very, very long time but I have never had the time or opportunity to do one. So here we go:

:bulletgreen:Categories

There will be 3 categories you may submit 1 picture to each category so you can potentially have up to 3 submissions. A winner will be chosen from each category. You can only win 1 category. If you win multiple categories your best category will be yours and the second place category winner will be chosen in the other category(ies).The 3 category winners are the 3 participants eligible for further placement and prizes. Of the three category winners an ultimate winner will be chosen by poll vote. The other two will fall in second/third based on the poll. You do not have to use my characters in these pictures but you may. These categories are meant to test/hone specific art skills vital to being a successful artist. Even I haven't mastered all (any...) of them. Please even if you don't feel like you will win take the opportunity to enter and sharpen those skills. I enter contests all the time with that very intention in mind and it has helped tremendously! I am making this contest not only to extend you the opportunity to get art from me but also to help you think about these concepts and become better artists yourselves.

Submissions may be done in any medium: digital, traditional, photo, sculpture, just be creative! New art made for this contest only please. I want you to work for these prizes and for the betterment of your art skills. You won't gain that and will be disqualified if I find you using an old picture.

If you choose to participate please: favorite this journal (required), post a link in your journal (not required) and comment below with the category(ies) you wish to enter so I can add you to the participant list (required).

Choose the one that best fits your interest/skill set:

:bulletblue: Beautiful Planet Earth (Difficulty - Moderate)

This category will be judged based on your portrayal of what you find beautiful about our amazing planet.  It seems that as the years progress and people become more and more distracted by the developing world we forget to reflect upon our origins. As we forget we also forget to conserve and to appreciate. So put some pictures out there that will act as a reminder to those who stumble upon them even long after this contest has ended. (Hint: This category will be heavily judged on back-grounding skills as that plays a large part in the portrayal of our planet)

:bulletblue: The Hunt/Battle (Difficulty - Hard)

This category will be judged on your portrayal of action in the scene. Not too much blood and gore please, although necessary amounts are allowed. I want to see your skills in drawing dynamic, characters popping out of the scene, into my room, kinda pictures. (Hint: This category will be heavily judged based on your ability to portray motion, correct anatomy and perspective)

:bulletblue: Emotion (Difficulty - Easy)

This category will be judged on your ability to portray emotion as an artist. There are hundreds of ways that you can portray emotion in a picture such as color, expression and composition to name a few. Be creative! (Hint: This category will be heavily judged on how strongly your picture portrays the intended emotion to the viewer)

:bulletgreen: Rules

:bulletred: New pictures made for this contest only!
:bulletred: Art must be yours!! No art theft will be tolerated!!!
:bulletred: Don't harass me or other participants to further your chances of winning, you will be disqualified
:bulletred: Don't make submissions that portray uncomfortable content, use discretion we want to keep it at least PG here people we will/may have younger participants. Offensive pictures will be disqualified.
:bulletred: Have Fun!!!

Terribly sorry I wasn`t able to enter, the due date snuck up on me, and on top of that no internet. I send my deepest apologies for making you put a spot for me, and I ended up not finishing on time.
Have a nice Day
