Artistic Journey Challenge Winners

Wed Nov 26, 2014, 12:05 PM


Running Towards Improvement by TheK40
Video by Keith Fenter, kfenter

In the "What Does Your Artistic Journey Look Like?" Challenge, we asked the DeviantArt community to show us their personal creative journeys. We selected 50 deviants and integrated their work into a fantastical collaborative roadway under the direction of Keith Fenter. The result: an eclectic combination of hopes, desires and achievements in the arts reflecting the core of the community that is DeviantArt.

Judges' Comments

"Here we have a clear window into this artist's journey. We get to see all the way back to his humble beginnings, struggling with drawing stick figures, up to the point where he's totally nailed line, color, and perspective. With a wonderfully clever and pleasing composition, this piece even gives us the chance to see the artist dodge an obstacle on the way down his creative road."

Judges' Comments

"Wylielise mingles both traditional and digital platforms to create a beautiful marriage of old and new, showing both in technique and illustration that there are many roads you can traverse and several ways to get there on your own artistic journey."

Judges' Comments

"This piece covers various mediums of art and shows how an artist must experiment with a variety of materials throughout their artistic journey. The composition of intricately placed details tells a story most artists can relate to."

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.

EVE Online is a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) where over 300,000 players engage in the endless struggle for supremacy over territory, industry and ultimate power in the world's largest online universe.

Unmasking the Darkness

The Game

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War the first Horseman of the Apocalypse stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell.

Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.

Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.

Go to www.darksiders.com to learn more about the game!

The Contest

We are challenging you to create a piece of artwork in any visual medium depicting a creative and personal interpretation of the last days of Earth during an 'apocalypse'. What would the end of the world mean to you? Is it your favorite TV show getting canceled? Your best friend moving across the country? A world with no ketchup (OMG!)? Whether your version is "fire and brimstone" in the biblical sense or a world overrun by cannibalistic bunnies we want to see what your 'last days' would look like!

As an extra special treat, the winners for this contest will be selected by Joe Madureira of Vigil Games, AKA Joe Mad!

Intoduction

    
        

"Paper Heart" is in select theaters August 7th.

        

Does love really exist?

        

Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says.

        

"Paper Heart" follows Charlyne as she embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn't fully understand. As she and her good friend (and director) Nicholas search for answers and advice about love, Charlyne talks with friends and strangers, scientists, bikers, romance novelists, and children. They each offer diverse views on modern romance, as well as various answers to the age-old question: does true love really exist?

        

Then, shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of love takes on a fresh new urgency. Charlyne risks losing the person she finds closest to her heart.

             
    
        

Inspiration

        

Is love a many splendid thing? Is it a battlefield? Can it conquer all?

        

We want to know what love means to you!
Get your creative juices flowing and design a movie poster (including the film's title and release information) and focusing on the theme "What Does Love Mean to Me?"

        

Whether it's playing an amazing video game for 10 hours straight, taking a romantic walk on the beach with that special someone, or even seeing your new baby for the first time, we want to see your definition of love!

Goblins vs. Gnomes Challenge

Thu Nov 20, 2014, 11:21 AM
Goblins vs. Gnomes by SpicyGingerr

Create Your Own Mischievous Goblin or Gnome!

The battle has been declared. Side with either the cunning and dangerous Goblins or the clever and wacky Gnomes. Create your own Goblin or Gnome inspired by Hearthstone's new expansion pack, Goblins vs Gnomes, and include the invention they would use to confuse, confound, or explode their opponents.

It's up to you: pick as your inspiration the measured ingenuity of the Gnomes or the trademarked fearlessness of Goblins. Make a new invention or reinterpret an old one.

Step 1

Learn more about the characters and inventions used in the game, Hearthstone Goblins vs Gnomes. View the cards provided above and consult the additional resources link. You may use as reference but not actually duplicate Gnomes, Goblins, inventions, and other visual materials currently used in the game.

Step 2

Create an original artwork inspired by the Hearthstone Goblins vs Gnomes game in the form of a portrait or an illustration of a single Goblin or Gnome character with one of their mischievous inventions. You may use any visual medium excluding cosplay, photographs, or moving images. Photographs of an entry made in another medium are acceptable.

Step 3

Submit your entry using the button below. Your entry must be at least 2,000 pixels in its shortest length and must be submitted as a single .JPG or a single .PNG file.
