:iconmudkiplaplz: So I herd u liek progress? :iconmudkiplaplz:



The idea behind this contest is to help Fan Artists realize how much progress they've made through the years.  Basically, you'll be able to show deviantART's Community a comparison between one of your old pieces, and a remake or reinterpretation of said piece, and at the same time get the chance to win awesome prizes!


:iconmudkiplaplz: What do you have to do?



First thing is to find an old Fan Art you've created. It has to be at least 6 months old. Choose something that you think could use some revamping. It can be something you have uploaded to deviantART, but if it's not, you can upload it to your scraps or the Fan Art Gallery Category you think suits it the best.

The next step is to analyse the piece.  How would you execute it today?  What changes would you make?  You can recreate or reinterpret it as you wish, as long as the original concept is kept intact.

Once you're finished, submit it to Contests > 2011 > So I Herd U Liek Progress.

Once all the entries have been judged, a news article will be published with the winners and features of all the entries.


:iconmudkiplaplz: Media:

o Digital art
o Traditional art
o Photography > Cosplay

:iconmudkiplaplz: Rules:



This contest is for Fan Art only. For a good explanation on deviantART's definition of Fan Art, let me quote the wonderful rydi1689, former Fan Art Gallery Moderator: "Our definition of fan art is something that is based on a character, a world, or a story created and copyrighted to someone else. Real people, regardless of how famous they are, can't be copyrighted and therefore it is not considered Fan Art. Real people, places and/or stories that do not have copyright themselves but appear in copyrighted books are still not considered Fan Art. "
Your entry must be a revamp or reinterpretation of your own work. Collaborations aren't allowed.
• You need to provide the thumbnail to the older version of your entry in the Artist's Comments. Don't know how to use thumbnail codes? Check FAQ #511: How do I post thumbnails of my art on the Chat Network or Forums?. For those of you with no Premium Membership, a link will suffice.
• You can enter as many times as you want, but you can only win once. This counts for both the visual and literature categories.
• Your entry must be based on Fan Art made 6 months ago or older.
• All entries must comply with deviantART's Terms of Service and Policy.
• If your entry is a Photomanipulation, please provide links and credit to all resources and stock you've used and make sure you have the proper permission, otherwise it will be disqualified from the contest.
• All entries must be made specifically for this contest. No exceptions.
The contest starts on April 4th 12:00 AM PST and ends on June 4th 11:59 PM PST.

Ok, a few questions. First of all, does it have to be done in the same medium as the original -- like can I take a pencil art and redo it digitally? Also, can I redo something that was originally just a sketch? Thanks.

:iconalexandrasalas:
alexandrasalas Featured By Owner May 15, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
No, you can change your medium if you wish. And yes, you can redo something that was just a sketch. :)

Hey,

This contest is not listed under Contests -> 2011 in the general deviation viewing. While the category exists, you cannot see any of the other entries.

I hope I'll make this one in time, my finals are almost done.. xD

Doesn't look like it's been fixed yet, at least for me: [link]

(If you see it, I'll go clear my cache or something... if you don't poke Moonbeam harder :D)

Quick question: Do the two comparisons need to be in the same deviation? Or just a link to the old one?
Reply
:iconalexandrasalas:
alexandrasalas Featured By Owner May 18, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I'm sure it's not your cache. But don't worry, $Moonbeam13 will fix it as soon as she can. She's just super busy.

As for your question, you can link to the old version in the new one's description. :)

can you draw out a scene or something from an old fanfiction?
Reply

alexandrasalas Featured By Owner May 3, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
If you wrote the fanfiction, you need to re-write the scene. The idea is to improve what you did before.
