CANVAS THE LEGEND Contest

Post by Bone-Appeteet on Thu Mar 19, 2015 5:06 pm

IT'S SPRING. LET THE GAMES BEGIN.

Spoiler:

Spoiler:

Spoiler:


WELCOME to the FIRST EVER CANVAS THE LEGEND contest.

CANVAS THE LEGEND is an illustration contest. The subject of the illustration is a legend whom you will have created.


GUIDELINES


ARTISTIC MEDIA

Acceptable artistic media are


  • paint brushes (including gouache)
  • pencils (colored and traditional)
  • pens
  • erasers ( Razz )
  • fingers
  • pastels
  • crayons
  • markers
  • digital versions of above (Microsoft Paint brushes, Photoshop brushes, etc.).
  • other available limbs


If you use a digital tool, you may not superimpose or otherwise incorporate images into your composition. You may, however, scan a sketch to your computer and use that image as a guide.

Spoiler:

I actually didn't use that scan. I used a worse picture I took with my camera, which is obviously ok to do too.


SUBJECT MATTER

The subject matter is a legend. By legend, I mean someone who is legendary.


  • The legendary figure may be good or bad.
  • He or she or it may be from any time (past, present, or future).
  • You may create a robot or a fantastical creature. That is acceptable.
  • YOU MUST HAVE CREATED THE LEGENDARY CHARACTER. (You may use previously created characters.)
  • Weapons, powers, super-attractive looks - all acceptable - none required.


If you want, you may include an accompanying story. It is optional and fair game.

Just in case it didn't stick in your head, the character you illustrate must be your own creation.


You may include additional, non-important characters in your illustration such as bystanders and combatants. Do not include other legendary characters in the illustration. This includes creating duel scenes. We (the audience) should know who the subject matter is before you tell us.


RATED APPROPRIATE

As if this needs to be said. No vulgarity, no promiscuity, and no graphic (especially vivid, brutal, or realistic) violence.

Explosions, kicking, punching, etc are ok unless something graphic happens as a result (toes bursting, excessive life-sustenance being lost, limbs popping off, etc.)

Pretend you are an average little kid and go from there.


PRIZES

COURSE there's prizes. (Of course there are prizes!)

I'm still working on the second and third place prizes. Will update soon.


First off, everybody who participates gets something.

A big 'ole, hunkin' pat on the back- no just kidding. Razz

I will draw a chibi of you (or not you) based off of your description (within reason).
I have never drawn chibi before. I'm sorry if it looks hideous.


First place will receive an 18" x 24" poster of a color, full-body character rendering illustrated by yours truly based on her or his description.
If you don't want it mailed to you, that's ok. I will post/PM the artwork on LEGO Zone Power.
(It does not have to be in color or full-body if you don't want it to be... if you're the winner.)



DURATION

The contest starts today, like now. It will end on May 31st at 11:59 PM.


FINAL NOTES

Still working on judging criteria and prizes. Will update soon.

Ooh coool... Perfect time to crack out my newfound graphics equipment and crush the artistic competition. Cool


A few questions:
-In addition to a potential written description of the character, may a soundtrack be included to further increase the epicness of the artwork?

-Is the 1st-place winner required to receive said canvas? (With the reason for asking being that the winner doesn't wish to disclose his mail address Razz)

-Concerning the listed "artistic media", are noses included with "available limbs"? Not that I intend to use mine for my art, but I feel we should be considerate of any paraplegics who wish to participate.

I have a question:

When you list "fingers" as an acceptable artistic media, are we allowed to photoshop additional fingers into the image? Or are we limited to eight? Are thumbs included in this media?

@ ariklego

XD  Whatcha find? Is it free? EM, MANLY MAN OF MAN


Answers to your questions:

Yes, you may post an accompanying soundtrack. Razz
It may or may not hurt or help you.

Definitely not! No, you do not need to give out your mailing address.
I will PM/post the artwork as well. Razz

If you do want it mailed, Fluffy can vouch that I'm not a creepy person, and her mom said I have nice eyes. Razz


Well, a nose isn't a limb, but it is definitely an acceptable and quite viable option in the case that you have one. Be aware that we are not responsible for damage caused by excessive inhalation of potentially harmful chemicals comprising paints or other artistic media.

This is super cool. I'd enter if I knew how to art. Razz

@ Arik: If you want it mailed to you but don't want to give out your address, you may look into getting a P.O. Box. I don't know how those things work, but it's worth a shot. Razz

Wow, this sounds fun!

But only April 5th??? Sad  IDK if I can make that. 

I read your description, but I just wanted to be sure that this legendary figure can be a fantasy character, right? That's probably a given, but since there's plenty of legends IRL, I wanted to be sure. Wink

Also, is this legend a person whom a ton of people think legendary, or can it be someone, say, in Middle-earth, whom many Middle-earth fans think is legendary or epic?

@ Crackers

Draw a stick figure and enter it. You get a free prize. Razz

Gotta start somewhere. xD


@ Dalu

Honestly, I didn't know what a good deadline was, and I wanted the edit to be at exactly 12:00 PM, but then I edited it again, so I guess it didn't matter. Razz


Yeeees, the character can be fantasy... - The character is an original character that you made up. Razz  I get the feeling you were itching to draw a certain hobbit. xD

Your second question might be irrelevant now, but I'll answer it anyway. Razz  If you can imagine the character as an interesting main character in an adventure book, you're good to go!




What's a good date, you think?

Oooh, I have to make it up?  Bummer.... Razz

Well, I might send something in regardless...I have a idea or two...hehe.... Razz

Umm...Maybe April 10th? IDK, everyone draws at different rates and has different school work load levels...that might be too long.

DON'T ASK SMEAGOL! PoOR, POOR SMEAGOL! Sad

Btw, your topic is out of...topic.  So I'm moving it somewhere else.  Because I can.

And I should... Razz

My legendary character/creature is a Mutant Lean Pocket.

You know Elzeep wouldn't be the same today without them.

Yeah I'm in! Art is not necessarily my thing, but it's worth a shot. Neutral

Question: Are you judging solely on the art or on the story too?

@ EVERYONE


Important stuff at the bottom.




@ Jred

A-an-and first pl-place g-goes to.... Johnnyred! Eheh- eheh heh!


(please don't send them after me)


@ AquaRaider64

Awesome! Yay... Go for it. Razz

EHM...... you know, I should come up with and post the judging criteria, but it's been a busy week life. I definitely want more priority to be placed on the art than storytelling since it's an art contest. But a story can kind of help reinforce the character.

Also, I don't want it to be completely about how well you can draw. A super creative character who/that is drawn moderately well should win against a boring, unoriginal character who/that is drawn exceptionally well.

I'm interested in seeing how people make their characters unique!



IMPORTANT STUFF

Also, we got one entry in! YAY

When you PM them to me, put the art in a spoiler. Put the back story in another story, and if you have even more additional stuffs, put that in another spoiler.

I will let you resubmit or submit a replacement entries until I put the judging criteria up.
