Thanks to the previous contests for being the example to this one.

(expecially the poetry contest)
 

 

About 15 minutes worth of effort for a drawing without being too serious.

The drawing contest is intended to be done for fun, but also as an excuse to exercise, for who would want to improve their drawing skills. Messing around and taking the contest seriously are both welcome.

 

 

THE RULES

Spoiler

 

The rules can be changed according to the needs.

The first contest will have a neutral theme to get it started.

 

 

 

 

somewhere in the depths of the archive there was already an art contest

https://onemangaforu...on-art-contest/

but it had died off in 2014

So I just checked the post I was tagged in at the General contest discussions and suggestions topic. Right n time, considering that happened like two weeks ago. And.... I got to say I have no drawing skills what so ever, but this sounds fun. Are iterative generated pieces art (see Google) okay for entries? If so I'll make something cool for this.

i love randomly generated images too

 

but for this contest i think it would be more fitting if the images were directly drawn or edited by the person

soo, if you can start from a randomly generated image and then edit it, that could work too i guess

 

it's about this rule "All work must be done by you alone."

it should be visible the image was "made" by you to be valid,

so long the random image generator is used as a tool, and not the one doing all the work, it's fine

I'll just post it with a detailed description about the method I used for it just below the image in spoilers. I'll also link to the images used as a base for clarity's sake. If people think it's not fit for the contest it can still be removed. :^_^:

ah, i see now what you were meaning for it

 

did you draw the cover of your webcomic, or was it someone else to draw that? you said you have no drawing skills, so guess it was someone else?

cause if you had been the one to draw that cover, with that level of drawing skill you could have made a quick doodle, instead of all that editing on an already existing image :lol:

Tales of Midgard is done by two people as an artist-author duo. I'm the author, so no, I'm not the person who did the art for the original image. But even if I could create such great art, I'd still probably try this. Same goes for fractal geometry based art, but I never actually did anything like that.

less than a week left for the first round

guess this contest didn't start with a bang


 

people should be too busy to take 15 minutes off to make a scribble, or this just isn't very interesting

If I manage to sit down for something other than correcting papers or preparing lessons, I'll try to make something. I probably won't manage before Wednesday itself though.

if you happen to don't make it in time, but just need a little more, tell me and i'll move the endline a bit further, not more than a week though
 
 
wonder if the games forum dwellers would be interested in this drawing contest too, this contest is pretty close to a game anyway (think of it as a 15 minutes worth of effort)

the first round is up, and it'll end on March 16th, unless more people show interest but need time.

as cheap as it might sound:  because you left it so open ended this round im probably just going to color one of my pages for this.

 

its hard coming up with something to draw dude.  lol.  especially when it can litterally be anything.


 

but then again:  that comes from a mentality that I'm probably not going to win anyways.


 this is a music video I made for a friend of mine.  give it a listen.  the visuals are pretty dope

also some ear kandy

when you love something..  and I mean. really love it.  you fight for it for as long as you can until you cant stand any longer.  then when its all said and done, walk away with a smile hoping you did right.

then i'll give you a special theme only for you: ducks

 

also, remember this rule:

It is forbidden to enter work that has already been posted/published/entered at any other place.


 

so colowing of already used pages should partially count as already used work, the best way to follow that rule is starting from a black slate

 

"but then again:  that comes from a mentality that I'm probably not going to win anyways."

remember the contest is also for fun, who cares about winning (i don't, but that's me)


 

unleees, you're going to color a new page you didn't release yet, that would be fine by the rules

i've updated the rules, a new rule was added

 

"Drawings should not contain text."

 

it came to mind while i was browsing some pictures, and it looked like something worth to add, even if it should be obvious

text detracts from the drawing ability to express something with only images

what about hand drawn calligraphy?

 

just asking for clarities sake seeing as calligraphy is still technically a type of art form.
