CONTEST !!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 22, 2011, 2:31 PM





edit 29 november 2011 :
ONE IMPORTANT ADD :

I need at least 3 participants  by subject to decide of a winner.
I know it might sound rude, but If you enter let's say, subject 3 and that you are the only one, well you'll win whatsoever your pic looks like. there is no challenge, then no contest.




THEMES    :

WONDER WOMAN / PHANTOM LADY :

As a pairing .
This subject is here to test your abilities to show something sensual; sultry or erotic .In a good way (no porn. and it's not allowed on D.A btw ).
All the challenge is here. I've also choose  these 2 because it's easy to fall in classical tricks, due to their costume and... *hem* chest. be warned.
Now if you want to play rough, heh. ok. just keep in mind D.A rules,and maybe your futur judge tastes in mind ;)
You can also choose the version of their costume you like the best. I tend to prefer Daniel Acuna's version of PL however . And the classic WW of course.

ZATANNA'S SHOWCASE :

For this one you have to put Zee in a particular context. it can be a "what if" situation or just a simple trick she does, a poster parody, there's is many possibilities... this subject is here to test you abilities to put things in context; and maybe to see if you are good at making thinks looking like something else.
You can draw her alone or with  friend(s) it's very flexible. Just keep her as the principal subject.
Keep Zee easy to identify. Also please avoid the one from the new DC universe.

VIDEO GAME GEEKS : CROSSING UNIVERSES.

Here ; the purpose is easy, it's a very common fanart subject : mario vs sonic, bayonetta vs dante , Tifa x Lightning,  marvel vs capcom....
This subject involve that you have AT LEAST 2 characters on you picture.you can have 351 in one pic if you want. but 2 is the minimum. no maximum set.
It can be  someoneVSsomeone or someoneXsomeone, depending if you look for fight or love... or maybe both :D
i recommand that you use very well knowed characters. While I'm a gamer, I don't all the the franchises. I'm not against you picture more underground characters but it might be harder to judge.

In other way i'll feature you pics on a next journal, depending on the amount of entries. the top 50 will be here.... if you are at least 50 :lol: if less, you'll be all in the journal, if way more, you have to manage to be in the 50 first ones !


GENERAL RULES </i> :

DEADLINES:
-December 31st. 00:00.

-No particular christmas or new year themes involved the in the 3 subject, but you can use them if you want :)
-Please keep  respecting DA's rules . Don't forget to set it as "mature content" (strict or warning) if your pic play in this kind of art.Don't forget i'm the only judge; while you can do what you want/ like;  keep in mind that's stuff I don't like in art might be your weakest point if you use them ( Honestly, forget women wearing 180 DD cup in explicit  XXX scene, and crying without reasons ;) for example ). Enter the contest if you want to win or at least to bring your best. Don't waste your time (and mine ) if it's just to kill 1 hour in your boring afternoon.
-submit a link to your work in THIS journal. not on my profil page or in an other parallel dimension. No. Here. THIS journal ok ? :)
- No limit for submitions.
- you can work and submit on the 3 subject. and YES "c'est la vie" you can also eventually win on the 3 subjects. yes. hard work pays. I don't see why I would put restriction to that.
- Your picture might be created for this context. Don't submit stuff that are in the depth of your gallery. I'll see it.
-The picture might be YOURS. Don't stole or re-use other artist works.
-Subject 1 involve women only. subject 2 might have male characters only  if you need to... subject 3 might have whatever characters you want in :)

------Allowed kind of renderings :
-colors, greyscaled

-------Allowed tools :
--all traditionnal medias (pencils; inks; painting....)
--Digital painting and drawings
--3D
-- photography.

--------NOT ALLOWED:
--sketches,unfinished pictures,photomanipulation of already existing art...


SOME TIPS </i>  :

-Don't rush. Even if you start from the fact that you "won't win anyway" if you enter a contest it's generally to bring the best of you. go for it.
-PLEASE read over and over the rules. If you really have questions or are not sure of a particular point, please ask your question IN THIS journal. If my english suck, sorry. I tried my best to be clear enough.
-Choose your subject by priority : don't choose the "wonder woman/ phantom lady"  if you suck at drawing female characters and sensual situtations. it's the best way to loose yourself.
-In my opinion the hardest subjects  remains wonder woman/ phantom lady. you got to be able to illustrate 2 well build women,in sexy situation. you have to have your anatomy on the top too. believe me when they are "bigger" it's not always that easy to picture. if you go for colors, it's also an important point: colors and lightning are reals important elements that can either ruins or make you picture even better. I don't even talk about the way you are going to frame it or the eventual story you have to set.... :p
The "video game" one might requiert more work but is very free with its content.
The "Zatanna" subject is only tricky in one point: she belongs to my favorite characters, and I really have a particular way to see her. so i'm always a  hard judge when it's about her. Ok, you also got to be imaginative.  (PLEASE avoid pictures with big busted zee after she spelt "sboob gib" I saw too much of these. )
- Remember : your first idea might not be the best one. And will probably be the ones everyone thought about !
- a good idea +  a good storytelling/ framing  are the 2 first important point to work one. Technic comes after.
- you get WAYYYYYYYYYYYY more chance to win if you submit a colored picture...


I might edit this journal a bit in the next few days, but you already get all you need to know !

Well I was home all day today for the holiday and decided to try my hand at colorizing an image for the contest, so here's another Zatanna but in a relaxing pose, I still need a lot of practise but I am happy with the way she turned out. [link]

Hope you all like.

Just wanted to add another image of Zatanna. Not as good as my first submission but I had fun with the trick theme that I just wanted to share. [link]

I do have a piece that doesn't fit into the contest but I did want to share cause it's of Phantom lady in a coy bust sketch, it was a concept idea while working on contest ruff sketches. [link]

This is my entry to Zatanna. You will notes it is very, very much the same idea as Rowtiger's, and I did not intend this. If it is deemed to much the same then I will with draw it from competition, and hopefully have the time to come up with another entry.

Here it is. [link]

Oh, yeah it's a common idea I guess. Yours happens some seconds after Rowtiger tho :lol:
but NO , I don't have any problems with the fact your idea is close to the other.So you can keep it for the contest. It's up to you if you want to go with an other pic :)

I just posted my entry and want you to know I was not trying to copy you. I almost didn't enter it, but thought I would leave it up to J-Estacado. If he thinks its to much the same (and it is very much the same idea)then I will withdraw it from the contest.

Rowtiger Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Leave it in the contest, there's never a problem when artist come up with similar ideas. I think it's rather cool seeing an image done in different takes, medias and styles. I real like the 3d effect, it's the one thing that I have never been able to achive with my art styles, it's definitely a sweet pic.
