Bring Your Dreams To Life!

How To Participate

DeviantART and Wacom are proud to present the second Intuos4 "Bring Your Vision To Life" contest! The response to the first "Bring Your Vision to Life" contest and the quality of the entries were amazing, and Wacom is very glad to be back to challenge our community for a second round. Wacom loves the talent, creativity, and boundless energy that deviants have, so let's wow them again!

While the first contest tackled "Good vs. Evil", the theme this time is "Dreams". The contest, open to artists of all visual mediums anywhere in the world, challenges you to show us your dreams and aspirations for the future. Do you long to go to medical school and become a doctor? Do you dream of settling down and starting a family? Maybe you have more lofty dreams of world peace and to put an end to global hunger, or maybe you simply want to do well on an upcoming exam. Show us your hopes and dreams for the future, and bring them to life!

Your entry will be judged on its originality, creative interpretation of the theme, and technical skill. One of the winners will be chosen by you, the wonderful deviantART community!

You can keep up with contest updates and news on
Wacom's profile page.

  • Create a piece of art in any visual medium based on the "Dreams" theme
  • Upload your submission as a jpg, gif, or png file
  • There is a special Community Choice winner based on the entry with the highest number of Favorite's received between 12:00:00 AM (PT) December 16, 2009 and 11:59:59 PM (PT) December 22, 2009, so be sure to get all you friends involved and come back to vote!

From Tim Burton, the acclaimed director of Alice In Wonderland, comes the astounding film that captured the hearts of fans and critics all across the world. Inspired by Roald Dahl's beloved children's book, Burton, Denise Di Novi and Director Henry Selick combine a fascinating mix of live-action, stop-motion animation and computer-generated special effects to create a world beyond your imagination.

After the daring rescue of a spider, a young boy named James gains possession of some magic crocodile tongues. When James spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach! Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey full of thrills and adventure. Voiced by an all-star cast, including legendary actors Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Simon Callow and Jane Leeves, and featuring the celebrated music of Randy Newman, this classic story is delicious entertainment for the whole family!

In "James and the Giant Peach," James is looking for an escape – from his troubles, from the sadness surrounding his parents' untimely death, from his horrid aunts. With the help of a magical oversized peach and some newfound friends, James was able to sail across the sea and reach the faraway land he'd always dreamt of. For this contest, put yourself in James' shoes and show us where you go to escape the real world! Illustrate the magical landscape of your daydreams and let us see where your imagination takes you. Adventures this big don't grow on trees, so let your imagination soar to Giant-Peach proportions!

The Movie

New from producer Tim Burton and director Shane Acker comes the post-apocalyptic fantasy "9". In the too-near future, the world's machines have turned on mankind, decimating the human population before being largely shut down.

In a mission to salvage the legacy of civilization, a group of small creations were given the spark of life by a scientist in the final days of humanity. Surviving past the apocalypse, one of their own, #9 (voiced by Elijah Wood), emerges and displays leadership qualities that may help them survive and possibly even thrive.

With their group so few, these "stitchpunk" creations must summon individual strengths in order to outwit and fight against the still-functioning machines.

"9" is in theatres 9/9/09.

The Contest

Give your own creation the spark of life! The fictional universe of "9" is filled with creatures of all shapes and sizes, constructed primarily of found objects from the wasteland that Earth has turned into. DeviantART and Focus Features are challenging you to do what you do best and get creative! Invent a machine-like creature of your own using common, household found objects, and submit drawings, paintings, sculptures, and even photographs of your creature.

Check out the trailer above and images from the movie for inspiration!

When our world ended, Their mission began.

INTERNATIONAL, 13+
Bosses are the biggest, baddest, and strongest enemies in any video game. They control hordes of monsters, rule the land, and they usually take a lot of skill to defeat. We're challenging you to create a new colossus
(a boss) for the new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, RIFT.

You're traveling through Telara as a bright light appears. A massive rift opens up and monsters start invading. Your team fights to protect their land. As they continuously battle the invading monsters, a massive, 10-story colossus appears.

deviantART is challenging artists to answer the question: What does this colossus look like in RIFT?

Choose one of the six planar themes: earth, air, fire, water, life, or death. Create concept art of a colossus using one of the themes. You can use your favorite image editing tool, a 3D program, or traditional media.

You must build a new colossus for the game RIFT.

Your colossus:
  • Must be based on only one of the six planar themes
  • Must be very large within the scale of the game environment
  • Must be original to you and all elements must originate from you. You cannot copy graphic material from the game.
  • Can be made in any medium as long as you submit it as a JPG or a PNG
  • Can be made using licensed brushes and textures, but you may not use third-party stock in your entry
Terrible to behold and teeming with elemental might, a colossus represents the ultimate destructive power of its plane, leading its fellow riftspawn to battle against scores of Ascended.

Choose one of the six planar themes. (Click examples below.)

Create concept art for a massive boss using your favorite image editing program, 3D graphics software, or traditional media.

Once you're done, submit it as a .JPG or .PNG file!

Starships are the shield, sword and signature for the pilots of EVE. They are created both to tear down entire empires and to gather and transport the resources needed to build anew. What new machine will you bring to the warfront? Will yours be a craft of elegance and beauty? Will the mere presence of it prove more intimidating than any arsenal a pilot could load into its bays? Design a starship and enter it into the EVE Online Create A Starship Contest for a chance to have your dream ship become a reality. The 1st Place winner will have their ship added to the premiere space MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game), EVE Online where countless pilots will build and fly the winners' creation.

Show us your real concept art skills and get judged by the EVE Online creative team! Examples of how an entry should look are here (image) and here (video). Entrants will need to provide their entry from all six orthogonal views in order to qualify for further consideration as a potential winning entry.

Contest Winners

The response to the Wacom's Bring Your Vision to Life contest was truly awe-inspiring! With over 9,500 submissions, it was deviantART's most successful contest to date! We want to give a big thank you to everyone who entered, as well as to our great judges from Wacom (who had a very difficult job to do.)

Once again, we have been extremely impressed by the creativity and talent of the deviantART community. We are proud to announce the following winners (including Community Choice, chosen by YOU!) Let's check out who's getting their hands on a brand new Intuos4!

    
Second & Third Place Finalists     
        
In the initial posting of this article, the 2nd and 3rd place winners had been mistakenly switched. The order on the page now is the correct one. We apologize for the confusion.
    
         First Place          Community Choice

Three Steps to Success

1. Download the template & create your own bottle artwork.

The template will provide you with a rectangular         "skin" outline representing the dimensions         of the actual label that wraps around the bottle.         Place your artwork into the rectangular template.         There is also a side-view of the bottle, which you         may optionally use (in addition to the required         rectangular skin) to show off your artwork on an         actual bottle shape.

Create anything you want using the template so         long as it represents your vision. Your entry         should show the Art Water name in whatever design         or placement you choose.

Helpful tip: The Art Water bottle is clear, meaning         you can play with the transparency for some crazy         layering effects. Now download the template and         start creating!

Download Bottle Template

Upload your Artwork to one of three categories: photography, traditional art and digital art.

Save your artwork as a GIF, JPG or PNG and upload it to deviantART via the buttons below.

Upload Photography Entry Upload Traditional Art Entry Upload Digital Art Entry *The photography category is for any entry in which photography is the dominant medium used and any entry using photomanipulation techniques based on photographs.

Win Awesome Prizes!

Art Water will select a winning entry in each category. Each winner will receive the prize package described below. To win, be sure your entry follows the rules!

Official Rules

There will be one photographer, one digital artist, and one traditional artist chosen to have their designs appear as Art Water bottle labels and sold throughout the United States!

Each artist will receive $1,500 USD, 8,000 deviantART Points, and a one year Premium Membership to deviantART!

Artists will also receive a $0.03 royalty for every bottle that is sold with their design on it. Click here for more information about the royalty.
