Discussion in 'Art of War' started by Mussolini, May 13, 2009.
*bump* no one interested?
*Note: Submission can be in Color.
I'm assuming photoshops are permitted, so here's a reworking of this classic film poster. Click on it to get the high res version.
So Musso, who is the winner? You or Chad?
Heading Home ...
Great picture! Do you do a lot of these?
I do make a few from time to time, I use Photoshop CS 3 and couple other programs
in making them,
Just a hobby I do to past the time...
Thinking of reviving this thread...there are certainly some artists out there on this forum, would anyone be interested? Each contest would have a 'theme' and I could come up with some guidelines for the submissions. The 'reward' would just be a little image you can stick in your signature along the lines of 'July Art Contest Winner' etc.
hey Matt, I'd say you might generate some interest if you mention it in the Modelling section as well, a lot of those lads would be good at drawing and painting from doing their modelling, and if they wanted to, they could try to take a "realistic" photo of one of their models or dioramas .....I'd say most of them would like that (drawing and making a background)
Good idea Andy - I was just thinking about that too (the models/dioramas). A good photo and a little photoshop can make things look really good. I guy here at work could easily work for one of the major Comics (like DC Comics) he is that good - he took action-figures, took a picture of them, and then used photoshop - it was absolutely amazing!
Anyways, I'll post a link over there redirecting them here. I'll also come up with guidelines for the type of image (set a standard as far as size at least). People like things more when they're set in stone.
Something like this for the winner to put in their signature.
How did you do that?
We're not having a contest right now, and part of the stipulation is USER CREATED art, not something found on the web. Anything that can cause a copyright issue is not acceptable.
But again, I'll work out some solid details if there is some interest.
I am very interested.......
Interested but why the size restriction last time (personally I work on minimum 16 x 20 canvas) and subject matter - could it just be WWII? Restricting to vehicles may eliminate some...like me...
it has to be WW 2 Themed Matt as Michelle said ? also I work in pen/ink only with carbon pencil
Well, there is certainly some interest, enough to warrant some solid details. Given the WW2 Nature of the Forum, I think it would be best to keep it WW2 themed - I don't fancy seeing any of Erichs attempt at drawing naked ladies and call it art
As for the size, I was originally considering both forum space and display size. As long as it can be posted and viewed on the forums, I suppose it'll work. I can certainly make things more challenging though by implementing size restrictions and odd shapes, to make people work out of the norm.
Ok, I'll drum up a rough set of genetic rules, with monthly (or however frequently we run the contest) themes and/or challenges to see what people can come up with.
EDIT Oh, as for the unusual size of the 'first' contest, that had to do with a publication that fell through for the forums.
