It's time to get some action in here.

 

I am going to start up the art contest. This time around you may enter both traditional or digital works.

 

You may use works that you have already drawn, and because this is a new forum you may also enter pieces you have entered in the past on the old forum.

 

We do not have any prizes at the moment but who needs prizes? You can shout your victory in your status :)

 

We will need a theme, so start brain storming!

That is a lot, I may take a few, but since this is both a traditional (no computer aided design) and digital we can't have themes that cater only to digital, like vector, etc.

I will put up a list of themes so the artist can work ahead on future contests.

The signature contests need to be a separate contest.

Whom ever was in charge of that last time can start it up when they are ready.

Wasn't that Blackwingedangel?

Haven't seen her around this new place though.. 

 

 

Will there be a photo contest or is that included in the above? D:

I can get the photo contest up as well.

 

I was not that involved in the WSAC so I have no recollection of how it was laid out for me to put it together.

 

If anyone else remembers please feel free to get it going.

HELLO WINTER!!!!! Very good to see you indeed :)

Is this the winter banner contest? Shouldn't you post it at the major topics such as Naruto and Bleach, you know, as usual?

Since the current theme is "abstract" could I have Chloe fingerpaint and submit that under her name?  :P

If she has her own account then she is a member and it's her work, so yes :)

As Miss C said this has nothing to do with the banner contest. Rhyssa handles those and makes the entry threads and announcements for them.



I just saw this

My God!

The border between traditional and digital has been severed?!

SWEET JESUS, the opportunities!

 

Also, about the theme. I take it we are as forgiving as ever with the entries? I mean, monochromatic, surrealistic and/or impressionistic entries could be technically counted as abstract(ed), right? Those could be themes on themselves but it's OK to do something like that, right?

Just making sure :c

 

And another question: If you honestly don't know if your work belongs to amateur or advanced - what do?

sai, your work belongs in advanced.  just saying... you're made of amazeballs.... 

 

we would probably get a lot more entries if we used a loose interpretation of the theme "abstract" because seriously if not, I'm submitting a red square.... :heehee:

Abstract is more about the composition than what gere you use to create that compostion.

 

Definition:

 

Art that does not attempt to represent external, recognizable reality but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms and colors.

 

You can use all of these together or separately. I am doing an abstract piece but it will be done in plain pencil, so no color. Maybe I will go crazy and use color, but at the moment I am feeling just pencil.

 

If you are not sure if your piece is amateur or advanced place a "?" instead of "amateur" or "advanced"

Ah, thanks.
 
I thought abstracted to a degree pieces were accepted too, but this cleared it up. I don't really like completely abstract pieces though :C

thanks >.>"
 
and I agree. Abstract art tends to be...crap difficult to understand, not to mention difficult to make without doing random stuff you don't even understand yourself. Or maybe I'm just speaking for myself.
Oh well. I'll make something anyways. LET'S MAKE COLORED SQUARES WITH RAGING PAINT LINES. WOOOO.

I think it's a wise idea to start with a blank canvas. :P

I was saying whether I should use a digital canvass or a real one... Maybe watercolor paper or so... Still deciding right now...
