This entry has an aggressive design with a bold stance showing IS attitude that stands out. It is almost animated but with just enough realism. It screams SEMA and is an instant eye catcher that will fit right in.

~moondoni has won

  • 6-Month Premium Membership to deviantART.com
  • 4,000 deviantART Points
  • $1,500 USD Cash Prize

Judge's Comments

Menacing and sleek. This design has amazing aesthetic consistency and a great presence that introduces unique components front to back. It is both conceptual and consistent with the evolution of the IS line.

~hgh0518 has won

  • 6-Month Premium Membership to deviantART.com
  • 4,000 deviantART Points
  • $1,500 USD Cash Prize

Judge's Comments

Fully embracing the Lexus spindle grill, the front facia is very bold and has just the right amount of attitude. The subtle use of color accentuates the lines without overpowering them.

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

  • Each individual texture making up the triptych must be a minimum width/height of 1000 px
  • 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.
  • Each deviant may enter up to 2 times per category. (Essentially that's 2 triptychs per category or 6 textures)
  • Judges reserve the right to eliminate entries that do not meet the minimum size requirements shown above
  • Only complete triptychs will be considered as legitimate entries. (3 textures on 1 file/deviation)

Telling our stories through art features

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 10, 2013, 6:12 PM
If someone told you that you had to find the 5-7 pieces of art on dA that best represent you, could you do it? :XD:

What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?

I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.

What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!





I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
Rainbow Rain by LiliaOsipova

This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.
Still Life - Speed of Pain by emilieleger
Beautiful dress, beautiful hair. And fangs. And blood!! Yes, please!


I'm a Scorpio Fire Dragon. I love dragons; they are my spirit animals. I also love the color red!!
Summer Dragon by PerlaMarina
I love light and bright colors, and I'm always looking for the next adventure. What's on the other side of that door?

A Knock at the Door - Ver. 2 by Foxfires

Yin and yang, light and dark, good and evil . . . the struggle to find balance and, ultimately, peace within one's own mind. I am perfectly at peace in the dark, though I tend to live in the light.
The lake by MarcelaBolivar
I always have a thousand things on my mind-- a thousand wishes left to fulfill and many, many pages left to write. What appears scattered at times is actually only the shifting of priorities.On My Mind by Sangelus


What speaks to YOU? Who are you, in art? I challenge each and every one of you to post a journal of 5-7 personal inspirations. The deviations can be any medium or a mixture of all of them. Leave a link on this journal if you want me to check it out. :) Let's see what we have in common and who we can discover through one another!
