With this I open my 3rd contest. This time it's an illustration contest. I'll give you a theme, and you will have to draw something related to it. Quite easy.
You can also check the info in my journal >> [link]
So, the theme this time will be:
It must containg at least a character, human or non-human. You can do more than one character if you want.
The character/s must be clear. No tiny figures in the long distance or stuff like that.
It must have a full BG. A flat color doesn't counts as BG. Some kind of scenery/landscape must be in it.
It must be in color, with some shading (anime-like, or painting like, but shaded).
Any media is allowed; either traditional or digital. I don't value one more than the other. You can mix media as well.
Obviously, the work must be done by you, and only by you.
No traced, copied or vectored works. The image and concept must be original. You can use reference, but not copy.
No fanarts; any locations/characters showing in the illustration must be original. You can use your original characters if you have any.
No old works. I want you to create something from zero.
::ELEMENTS I'LL VALUE WHEN JUDGING::
Composition (how the elements on the illustration work toghether)
Color (how you combine color and balance it)
Technique (management of the media used)
Concept usage (how you play with the given concept 'rain' )
Artistry (more realistic doen't means better. I want art, not bland photography copies)
::HOW TO SUBMITT YOUR PIECE::
Simply upload it to DA and send me a note linking to your piece and stating it's for the contest. Yeah, I'm not a seer =_=
Also, please title your notes with "CONTEST ENTRY" or something in that line. Otherwise it may be lost among other notes.
And please, try that your submissions are not too small or I won't be able to judge properly.
:: DEADLINE -JUNE 4- ::
I'll give you 3 months for finishing it.
