UPDATE: Because of little freetime this contest is postponed and will take place this year! More information about the date soon to read here.
Dieses Jahr betreue ich meinen ersten eigenen Wettbewerb!
Es handelt sich hierbei um einen internationalen Fanart-Contest der Kategorie Art-Battle, sprich es ist kein wirkliches “Rennen” um einen Preis, sondern vielmehr ein Wetteifern aus Spaß. Das Thema ist “Henry Cavill: Man Of Steel”
Hier der Originaltext:
Hello to all ye artists out there who love to draw..!
This is my first contest/event-thingy so I’m very excited about it!
UPDATE: Because some of you are very busy these months (me included) I’ve set new closing dates! Now you’ve got some more time for mailing me your references and time until end of November to send in your finished drawings!
I’d like you to draw a collage of our new Superman Henry Cavill with at least 2 pictures in it..!
I will collect all entries, put them together to a great mural and then exhibit it at deviantArt, giving a shoutout afterwards on Facebook, twitter, tumblr & Instagram to promote all those marvellous artists who were willing to take part in this project.
Closing date for sending me your references (!) will be September 30th, 2013. Until this day I will add you to the list and keep this Journal updated with the references you chose so that is clear which pictures are already taken.
I’m starting with these three reference pictures:
Please choose your references wisely so that we don’t get the same pictures again and again.
You’re not allowed to:
– send entries which aren’t yours
– manipulate your drawing in graphic programmes. You may crop your scan, dust it off or erase the unexpected stain from food/drink, but no major corrections.
– add things in graphic programmes, like words or images. Your entry has to be 100% traditional!
– overdraw printed photos
Technique: Pencils and/or colored pencils. You can also use watercolors, pastels or Copics, but only for mixing techniques. Please no use of Copics only!
Style: Realism – Henry should look realistic. Please no Comic or manga style or caricatures!
Size: Any size you’re comfortable with.
References: Henry doesn’t have to wear the Superman suit, you can draw him as Clark Kent wearing normal clothes as well. But please no costumes (like those from The Tudors) or something!
Please notice: Only one entry per participant!
Because this is a contest not only for deviantArt members, you can submit your finished drawings to contest(at)visualwings.de Until November 30th, 2013. I’ll have all entries in one place and I won’t miss any entry.
Please send both scan and picture of your drawing in high resolution, so that I can check whether your entry hasn’t been adjusted to a certain degree in any graphic programme. jpg or png would be nice.
I hope you like this event and many of you will take part in it! I’m really looking forward to see your drawings..!
