Texture Your World Contest

Mon Jan 21, 2013, 6:55 AM

Tell us the story of your world in textures!


We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?

We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.

There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.



Digital stock
These are textures created digitally by either manipulation of other stock or painting etc

Photographic stock
These are textures which have been photographed with either a film or digital camera with minimal post editing (if you do a lot of post editing on your textures you might want to consider submitting them to the digital category instead)

Traditional stock
These are textures created with traditional media then either scanned or photographed to convert to a digital medium for submission


Submission Examples



Portrait


Landscape


Square


Submission Rules

  • Full submission triptych must be a minimum width/height of either 1000 px or 3000 px depending on the orientation/formatting you choose, please see examples above.

Photomanipulation Contest: Rebirth and Renewal

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 14, 2013, 11:55 PM

Welcome to the latest community competition for Photomanipulation!


This is the official kick-off blog for the latest, greatest EXTREME PHOTOMANIPULATION CONTEST here on dA! The contest is backed by communityrelations with HUGE prizes and hosted by CRPhotomanipulation. This journal describes the rules for the contest. Please read it carefully.


What we mean by "Extreme" photomanipulation


You should reach beyond your comfort zone and create a deviation that is bold, unique, and better than you thought you could create. Try something new. Break the mold. You've got this!

We have HUGE prizes. So, we are expecting HUGE results.


Theme: Rebirth and Renewal


Our theme, Rebirth and Renewal, was suggested by administrators of CRPhotomanipulation. You are hereby challenged to create a photomanipulation that shows rebirth and/or renewal. For example, it could show a transformation of sorts, being brought to life, or perhaps shedding the old to reveal something fresh and beautiful (or ugly!) beneath. Perhaps your transformation is into death, and you can show that. You should interpret what being reborn or renewed means to YOU and then depict it in a photomanipulation.


Time frame


The contest will be open for 2.5 months.

Contest opens: 15 January 2013
Contest closes: 1 April 2013, 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time (visit www.timeanddate.com to find out what time that is for you)

The Rules


Here are the rules in detail:

:bulletpink: Your entry MUST be a PHOTOMANIPULATION. That means it involves 2 or more photographic elements that have been combined to create something new. It is absolutely fine to have photomanipulations that have been painted over (and thus may technically be Mixed Media). SINGLE photographs that have ONLY been brushed or textured will not qualify. There must be at least 2 photographic elements. If you are in doubt, please check with us!

:bulletpink: No entries created before January 15, 2013 will be accepted. Entries must be new and specifically created for this competition.

:bulletpink: Contest closes at 11:59 PM PST on April 1st. No late entries will be accepted.

:bulletpink: *ALL* stock must be credited, including brushes. All stock must be from legitimate sources. If you don't know where the stock that was used to create your premade background came from, don't use it. If you don't know where the cutout stock came from, don't use it. We will decline all entries with questionable stock. If you don't know, ask. Direct links are NOT necessary, but they are always appreciated. See the stock reminder here.

:bulletpink: Collaborations are OK as long as all collaborators are credited, but if a prize is won, that prize will be split evenly among collaborators. If you are submitting a collaboration, you only need to submit the work once.

:bulletpink: You may enter up to TWO deviations, but you can only win once.

:bulletpink: Please include a statement in your artist's comments that you have created the deviation for the Rebirth and Renewal Photomanipulation Competition. Please link to this blog.

:bulletpink: There are special rules and requirements for some categories. Please carefully read the submission requirements below.


How do I submit?


There are three folders in CRPhotomanipulation that are open for submission: BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED. You should choose which level you feel is most appropriate for your art and submit to that folder. There are special rules and requirements for some categories. Please read below to find out which one is best for your work! If you have questions, please ask.

Here is the rubric and rules for deciding where to submit:

BEGINNING ARTISTS must demonstrate knowledge of:

:bulletgreen: Cutting out stock properly :bulletgreen:
:bulletgreen: Arranging pieces to tell a story (effective composition) :bulletgreen:
:bulletgreen: Must use at least 2 tutorials (and cite them in artist's comments). They can be on or off of dA. :bulletgreen:

INTERMEDIATE ARTISTS must demonstrate knowledge of:

:bulletblue: Composition :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Color theory :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Light and shadow :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Proportions :bulletblue:

ADVANCED ARTISTS must demonstrate mastery of:

:bulletpurple: Light and shadow :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Composition :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Blending (you can't tell it is made from different images) :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Perspective :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Flair (the "wow!" factor) :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Must have at least one aspect that either (1) has a sense of movement, OR (2) defies the law(s) of physics (for example: defying gravity, energy being created or destroyed, etc.). :bulletpurple:


ALL ENTRIES will also be judged based on:

:bulletpink: Impact
:bulletpink: Storytelling (Is your image just a pretty picture, or does it tell a story?)
:bulletpink: Creative interpretation of theme
:bulletpink: Originality
:bulletpink: Exceeding expectations (Is this a stand-out piece from your gallery?)

Submissions require one vote for approval. This is so that we can make sure they meet the contest rules; we are not screening for quality, etc.

To be clear, the admins of CRPhotomanipulation will NOT move your deviation or choose the category to which it is submitted. That is entirely up to the artist. We reserve the right to suggest that a piece of art be submitted to a higher category-- for example, an advanced artist should not submit to the beginner category.


The Prizes


There will be one winner from each category. Each winner will receive:

:bulletyellow: 5,000 (yes really) dA points from Community Relations and Moonbeam13

It is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…

Bring your Type to Life

This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.

Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!

What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, words or sentences you choose.

I hope this theme will be inspiring, to both Traditional and Digital Typographers, maybe even for Photo Manipulators, and even a Typography Beginner can create something awesome! There is no limitation on the media you use. You will have almost 2 months time to enter a submission, so I will post a lot of reminders ;)

Let's get creative!




The contest is open for all media!

This means for Traditional, that you can use Watercolors, Oil, Pencil, Ink, Collage, Installation, Sculpture etc. There is no limit as to what you can use!
For Digital Media, this includes Photo Manipulation, Vector, Vexel, 3D as well as Drawings or Paintings. Again, the only limit is your imagination.
Of course, you can also submit a Mixed Media entry, in which you combine Traditional and Digital elements.




Timing

  • Must be a new deviation, submitted after July 1st, 2012.
  • Deadline is August 26th, 2012. Any submission after that will not be taken into consideration.


Rules

  • It must, obviously, contain Typography.
  • Any medium is allowed, Traditional & Digital, as well as Mixed Media.
  • Please remember to follow the deviantArt Submission Policy.
  • Credit any stock material you use: This includes Photography, Textures, Vector Resources and Fonts!
  • You can enter more than once, but only be under the top 3 with one entry.
  • Only Entries in the Contests > 2012 > Bring Your Type to Life gallery are accepted.




Prizes


12 months Premium Mbsp.
1600 deviantART points

6 months Premium Membership
1 Emoticon Stressballs set

1 month Premium Membership
1 Stressball Keychain

You will receive notes after the contest about your prize. For the Key Chain or Stressball set, you will be required to add those items to your wish list. All other details would follow via note.




If you have any question regarding the contest, you can ask in a comment here or somewhere else on my profile or send me a note :)

I am looking forward to your entries :eager: :la: :peace:

That's right ladies and gentlemen :la: Game Development Art and Manga/Anime categories on Deviant Art are joining forces for a Feb to March long Contest! Hosted by :iconpolymune: :iconrydi1689: and :iconnyiana-sama: :love:

It is so appropriately labelled The G.A.M.E (The Gaming Anime Manga Experience) :eager: :eager:

The G.A.M.E Contest Information



Do you have what it takes to finally tell your friends you won "The Game?" :B

Your challenge if you choose to accept it, is to create a Game Screenshot experience! Can be traditional, digital, 3D: as long as it's Original!

that's right! Only original characters, and original settings of your own creation may be entered.

Game Development Art Category, and the Manga and Anime category on Deviant Art are not Fan-art Categories. They are not for your pictures of Zelda, or your pictures of Naruto: they are for your own original characters, your own original settings and any games/manga you collaborated on where you own the rights too. For example: You made lara croft 3D model for the new Tomb Raider game at Square Enix and they've allowed you to post your model up in your portfolio, yes you can post this into Game Development. You created a 3D model for lara croft because you love her, no this goes into Fan-art.

Anime and Manga is the same: they are for your original characters, and original mangas, not your Naruto oc's (Fan-art gets those lovely creations :la: ).

With this contest we are helping to promote that GDA and A/M are original art only categories, and the main rule of this concert is  No Fan-art

The G.A.M.E theme



What does science fiction mean to you? What does fantasy mean to you? Take one of these two, or both genres of art and create for us a Game Screenshot. A Cut Scene, if you will. Show us that sad death scene, show us that epic boss fight scene that comes before actually fighting it, show us that epic ending scene...anything your heart desires as long as it remotely looks like a game screenshot.

There's a catch: The only main restriction besides original art only, is it needs to be done in the Anime/Manga style. Remember though! Anime/Manga features all sorts of different styles and techniques..there is realism anime, semi realism, cell shaded, detailed, you name it! If you are unsure if your style matches anime or not, ask us or browse the anime manga gallery folder for ideas :love:

For example: (These are only examples, do not copy these, use as a reference) - The god of through time by wands96 Fiend + Boy by softmode Lostlegends Warmonger by the-John-Doe Don't Forget Me by yuumei Pewdiecry series: Ep 3 Screenshot by keary Parashi - Ginsenkei Video by nuriko-kun Romantic scene XP by lince Romantic mood by KaranaK I'M GONNA DIE! by meago

The G.A.M.E. genre



Try to give us some details in your artists comments if you can :la: What kind of game is it? An RPG, shooter, racing game etc? Who are these characters we are viewing? etc. No need to give us any plot spoilers if you don't want too ;) But a little bit of background information would be great! :la:

The G.A.M.E RULES



:bulletblue: Must be original work only No fan-art, fan characters set in copyrighted universes, only work you own the rights to. ie: your original characters, your original world, etc. If it's on earth, medieval, space, etc is fine as long as it's a work of fiction. (no using certain existing people, for example.).

:bulletred: Must simulate a game screenshot or a game cut scene of some kind. It doesn't have to "copy" how some games do it, but if you look up game screenshots/cut scenes you can see what I mean. (they have backgrounds, etc. sometimes even gameplay elements like attack, and stuff). Don't submit a full body character on a white background ...this is not a game screenshot or a cut scene.. Unless it's something like  

Keeping in mind that it'd have to be your characters not Square Enix's Cloud and Aeris, but just an idea where a white background might work for a game cut scene!

An example of a game screenshot:  
An example of a game cut scene:

:bulletgreen: Must use either science fiction or fantasy or both elements in some way.

:bulletpink: Must be in the Anime/Manga style. There are different variations of this style and a lot to choose from, the best definition I could find was "The stereotype of the anime style are characters with proportionally large eyes and hair styles and colors that are very colorful and exotic. The plots range from very immature (kiddy stuff), through teenage level, to mature (violence, content, thick plot)."

:bulletblack: Contest starts today Feb 14th, and goes until March 21st EST time at 11:59 pm. All entries must be submitted to the correct category by then!

:bulletorange: You must submit the art piece to the contest folder labelled "thegame" in order to qualify! Artwork cannot be submitted to the GDA category, or M/A category or any other category. To submit too it directly, you can follow this link:  www.deviantart.com/submit/?cat… or browse other contest entries here! browse.deviantart.com/contests…

The category is under Contests->2013-The G.A.M.E if you prefer to search for it yourself, or are having trouble submitting too it.

:bulletred: Artwork only created for this contest will quality! You may use existing characters, stories, games, etc you have created prior to the contest but MUST create a new art piece for this contest and follow the other rules.

:bulletblue: Have fun, be creative, and if you have any questions at all feel free to ask in the comments below or by note to either :iconpolymune: :iconrydi1689: or :iconnyiana-sama: the hosts of the contest! If you do not get a response from one after a few days, try noting another, :)

PE S&R Contest Icarus Updates

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 19, 2012, 4:20 AM



"On Delicate Wings"



Mourning for Icarus by H.J. Draper 1898


The Theme- ART:


We want you to recreate the story of Icarus, be that modern, or ancient using stock and resources available on DeviantART.

The Theme - STOCK:


We want you to recreate the story of Icarus, in stock form!  Is your Icarus male or female?  Are your wings made from feathers and wax or something more magical?


The Story: Icarus
Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman's genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot his father's warning. The feathers came loose and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.

Will you concentrate on Icarus reaching for the sky, or lost in the depths of the sea, or will you twist the myth?  Its all up to you!

CONTEST EXTENDED A WEEK

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 13, 2014, 11:09 PM
*EDIT* Woohoo!! We have some entries!!
Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I last held a stock challenge for stock artists but in the spirit of the new year here you go.

Theme
What if a mirror isn't all it seems. What if your reflection wants to keep you on your side? What if you are able to climb through a mirror but your reflection keeps standing in front of you, blocking your way? You try to touch the mirror without your reflection touching the same place. Maybe the cold surface isn't the mirror you're touching, but the cold flesh of your doppelganger, pushing back, keeping you on your side.

The theme is 'Through the Mirror'
