Glass Heroes vs. Villains Contest

Tue Mar 19, 2019, 1:02 PM
Og-winners by symonxFind out which characters M. Night Shyamalan selected as winners in the Glass Heroes vs. Villains Contest! The winners are facing off in the Community Battle, so vote now for your side!
Watch Trailer

Create an original character

for M. Night Shyamalan's Glass and set the course for the future of the world!

What would you do to save the world, or possibly destroy it all?

M. Night Shyamalan's Glass film takes this question to the extreme. Whether you're on the side of David Dunn, the Beast, or Mr. Glass, it's very likely that heroes live among us, but how we let the world know of their existence—and whether their existence will save or destroy the world—is entirely up to you.

For this contest, you're invited to create an entirely new character in the Glass story arc. Be inspired by events in the film, as well as whatever your imagination may have in mind. Whether they're a hero or a villain, don't forget to give your character a convincing backstory that makes their journey even more interesting.

Two (2) First Place and six (6) Second Place winners will be chosen by M. Night Shyamalan himself. Winning entries will then take part in a community battle, pitting heroes against villains on DeviantArt to determine who will reign supreme.

maybe it's just my impression but the face of the winning villain resembles that of Mr. Night Shyamalan...

Perhaps it's the dark wavy hair and the brown eyes, but if you think there's a similarity, it wasn't my intention at all! ^^; I had a very specific idea for the face in mind, but the character ended up slightly Mediterranean-looking in the end (which I do not complaint about, actually).
The eyes were also supposed to be hazel green, but I eventually changed them to brown because I felt a darker color would stand out more.

The winners were really nice. My only problem was that their powers were too supernatural, I thought we were in the  M. Night Shyamalan world of GLASS not the Sixth Sense. Lol
 Anyway if I were going to pick the winners for the Villains and Heroes it would have been:
1st Place Hero:
Glass Heroes v Villains Contest: Angela Alvarez by Sheridan-J  

1st Place Villain:
Sheren Wu  -  Villain by jura-chan  

2nd Place Hero:
Mr. Mistletoe by TaffysArt  

2nd Place Villain:
Glass Heroes vs. Villains - Galatea by InkVeil-Matter  

3rd Place Hero: 
Hero The Aunmass Jess Stalt by gameofdolls  

3rd Place Villain:
Dr. Henrik Ottmeyer / Villain by AndWhatArt

I just feel like these pictures fit the actual rules better and were way more realistic in the powers and abilities.

Thank you! I am honored that you feel this way.  I must admit when I saw this in my notes my heart skipped a beat xD I thought I had won haha.  When I made the character I spent a lot of time on the idea and design and didn't have a lot of time for the illustration part. It was a real challenge for me to design something that in my idea would fit the glass universe since it's so subtle like you say. I guess I was mistaken, and should have let my imagination run a bit more free and spend more time on the execution. But it's a lesson for next time I guess :) I am happy for the winners.

I'm so sorry to get your hopes up high, I know how that feels! :( 
But I truly did think yours should have won, it matched all of the contest rules way more than the actual winner.
I think that's the problem here, if he just wanted to see good art entries, then he should have said that. It's not right to stifle the talent of some artists trying to stick to the rules by making their hero/villain fit into a realistic fashion, while rewarding others who threw those rules out the window. 
Also if i'm being honest, your art style was just as good if not better then the actual villains winner art style to me. I almost wonder if the one who did win, won because he made his male character look like Mr. Shyamalan XD When in doubt stroke the ego of the judge, because if you read what he thought about most of the winners it always some how leads back to him and some idea he had a long time ago. 
The art must remind him of himself somehow to win XD 
Anyway congrats on making an awesome piece! :D

I find this quite insulting to my intelligence. All pieces are amazing works of art done by great artists for sure but shyamalan you need to be clearer in writing out your judging criteria. Don't create briefs for others to follow only to go off it yourself. Your previous contests placed more emphasis on 'visual impact of the art work' but to me this one seemingly placed more emphasis on "quality of the brief back story in the world of glass". Someone correct me if I'm wrong. What does quality mean to a successful writer such as yourself? The brief as led many to work harder on the back story of their characters to fit in the world of glass. You have surprisingly chosen a few works that don't have any association with your movie. You also said something about the characters being more realistic or subtle..but im sorry there is nothing realistic about the beast climbing up walls and and hanging upside down with no assisting attachments..that is supernatural. Also how is seeing people's secret crimes by just touching them realistic? 
You clearly chose your winners a long time ago by creating a fake account and posting them as favorites here www.deviantart.com/mns-glass/f…
Only to scramble around minutes later putting in other works and intellectual efforts of other contestants into that folder just to confuse us because it leaked is highly highly highly unprofessional of you (pardon the extended use of highly). Treating people's efforts like childs play this way is ridiculous as you gave no regard to the emotional impact resulting from a false hope of these deviants like in this conversation
 www.deviantart.com/comments/1/…
This makes me question the credibility of this contest, which is attached to your name. 
I had high expectations of this contest but to my disappointment it lacks consistency and professionalism. If the visual impact of the work was conveyed as the key criteria of selection in the brief of this contest I believe so much more contestants would have taken part and just painted art pieces that would have blown us all away.
Also it was stated their will be a community battle on Deviantart...and how are these characters you chose supposed to 'battle' one another with the nature of their abilities? Or is it just a vote 'hero' or 'villian' thing? What does character design mean to you? Clearly I must have missed something and let my imagination go beyond the scope of this contest.
This is not to undermine any contestant or to contest their success( as your decision is final anyway) but to call it out for what this competition really is. Due diligence was not applied in this contest and only one criteria out of all four was considered just because it makes your job much easier. This to me is surely lack of integrity in this competition.
So people don't bother reading shyamalan judging criteria on any of his contests..just paint. He's a very busy man and that's all he is got time for.

This is by no means to justify his somewhat shady side account but you must remember this is foremost an art contest not a writing contest. When I was reading about this contest a while back I had no impression that the backstory of the character was the most important factor for this contest. The trailer was linked in the first place as more so an inspiration of what the contest artwork should be based on. What I gathered when I saw the trailer was that the "power" were more low-key. In the sense that they don't have fire coming out of their bodies, can fly or shoot lightning out of their hands. All the powers in the trailer and their depiction on wiki were focused on super human strength and some paranormal abilities. In a sense as long as the character isn't magically invisible or doing anything too magical then you can almost create any character you want and it would be somewhat realistic. Just imagine someone goes up to you and says " I can shoot fire out of my body" versus someone who says "I can see your future by touching you". Both are not really realistic but I'm more so inclined to believe the latter. "Quality of the brief back story in the world of glass". Brief is more so another way to say a short summary. Quality = good. Simply a good short story explaining the character and how it relates to the illustration. Mostly, does the illustration convey much of what the summary says. If so then you are good. Since this is an art contest, the judge is more inclined to look at the art first then narrow the entries down. After narrowing the entries down, they read the back story. Then both the back story and the art goes into consideration of the final judging. That's how I would assume most judging of anything goes in an art based contest. Remember although backstory was listed as the second bullet point, it doesn't mean it's the second most important. The judging  was based on can he see this character in his story-line? Does the the back story match the illustration? Hence "as depicted in the Work". Does it portray the theme? Basically hero or villain and what kind of power. Lastly, Originality and artistic skill. All these were criteria. Thus all must be present. Remember most contests don't require to create a new character so most never mention back story. The only major difference compared to the other contests in terms of criteria, is instead of "action and settings" it became back story. In a sense its the same sh*t. Actions and setting are used for mostly fan art contests because the backstory of the characters already exist. So that criteria focuses on the story of the illustration. If you know the character, it's quite easy to understand the story the illustration is telling. He wouldn't know jack sh*t about the characters that the contestants create. That back story criteria is there to support the illustration. That's why I didn't consider it as the most important.

The fact of the matter is that there are a lot of grey areas in the contest, which shouldn't be as it came across as professional. That is not what you expect when a well known Director and the largest Art platform collaborate in hosting a competition.
The importance of 'back story' in the competition because of its position in the criteria might be an assumption but this is why rule or criteria writers use terms such as 'in order of importance' and 'in no particular order' to eliminate confusion. That should have been clear.
You said his characters possess some paranomal abilities..to me that equals supernatural. To predict the future is logically impossible as this involves experiencing physical events that have not yet materialized in a physical state, events that are entirely based on occurences in the present physical state. In short, the future doesn't exist and the past is no more. But supernaturally this might be possible. Shooting fire might not be possible but at least fire eaters and spitters don't need to be supernatural. I go with fire shooters on that one (lol).
They stated 'brief' in the rules. How brief is brief? Two lines? Five? A page? Once again it should have been clear. There is a difference between 'character profile/description' and 'character back story'. In character description you just outlay the powers and profile. In a back story we need to know why, how and possibly when the character came to be the way they are, in this case a Hero or Villain. How they came about discovering their abilities should be explained too.
Even visually speaking, some of the entries are  either too spiritual or gruesome going by their own criteria.
The most important aspect of the criteria I believe was over looked is the 'in the world of glass' part. To me as an artist and a writer, this means to write and create your character into or around the story, events or characters in the glass movie. To what degree is another matter but it needs to clearly portrayed in the brief. I can't perceive any other interpretation of this statement.
Yes the account is shady. You don't need a Deviantart account to veiw and Judge entries. To fave winning entries before the results are announced is quite unethical which begs the question of who really chose these entries?

I apologize for using your comments here..but let's face it..we are all human and that kind of move will stir excitement in any artist even if it is for just a moment. 
Why do you sell yourself short? If you can't stand up for yourself and your work do you think anyone else will? I have seen your work..its is amazing stuff so after all these questionable situations I hope you still don't believe you didn't deserve a winning spot.

All of us are different, some people need to show themselves as super confident guys, others are more quiet about themselves.

I don't need to brag around or self-validate me in public. That's a waste of energy for me. I honestly think that there were better entries, I've learned to appreciate other peoples art and know where are their strong points over mine and what could be more appealing to certain judges over my own work. That certainly doesn't make me less human than everybody else, just different.

I truly appreciate your kind words about my work, I'm a professional too, but I know when to step back.

This is not the end of the world and certainly not my last entry to a contest :). I just keep moving, that's my thing.

Nicely said and you don't have to say anything about other people's art. This is not an issue of what work is better than what work. This is about what work ticked all boxes. Not everyone is able or interested in voicing their opinions. We as contestants were bound by rules in this contest and so are the judges. It is an owed duty that they follow the contest brief which was set by them. I only speak for myself and those who feel the same way. I can't just keep quiet seeing this. It won't change anything but I feel much better for it letting it out.
Its not my first or last contest, but it surely is my last Deviantart and shyamalan combo contest.

Gabriel Moon  Glass character contest by Atomakad

Gabriel Moon - “The Dream Detective”

(age 34)

Background:
Born in Langhorne (Close to Philadelphia) to a middle class family. He was a savant and could solve most problems and puzzles. He studied criminology because he believe it would be a great way to use his abilities for good. Gabriel met his wife in college and since then has one daughter. He works as a detective that investigates homicides in the city of Philadelphia. He one day starts having dreams about murders that seems unconnected at first. He realizes that these dreams match up with unsolved cold cases. He decides to investigate these cases and solves them one by one. Not only does he solve them, but finds connections that lead to an even bigger unsolved case that might get him in trouble with certain groups that don’t want their secrets exposed once he puts the pieces together.

The twist is that these dreams are the memories of an accomplice of the crimes that reincarnated into Gabriel to redeem himself of wrongful doings.  

Powers: 
Premonition
Lie detection
memory scanning

Skills:
Detective
Forensics
Diplomacy
interrogation
Law knowledge

Weakness:
High pitch sounds - This stems from various events in which school bullies would torture him with nails on the chalkboard and scraping plates with utensils.

Devious Dreams: The winners!The Devious Dreams campaign launched in March 2019 as a chance for DeviantArt to grant artists the tools they need to make their creative evolution a reality. With over $20,000 in prizing available to make dreams come true, thousands of deviants shared a wide range of creative and heartfelt dreams for their artistic future. We particularly enjoyed seeing the support everyone put forward for each others’ creative goals. Now that the campaign has come to a close, it is our honor to announce the recipients of Devious Dreams grants—a collective of artists from all walks of life with a broad spectrum of creative ideas. Some of these deviants requested drawing tablets so they can create every day. Others asked for traditional art supplies, or photography tools to more efficiently create and share their art. Some asked for crafting supplies like sculpting or sewing materials. The projects each artist put forward were varied and inspired, and it’s our pleasure to help bring these dreams to life.Dream Recipients!

Devious Dreams: The latest news!The Devious Dreams campaign launched on March 18th to provide deviants with an opportunity to reach for their artistic evolution by awarding $20,000 in prizing to deviants with art-inspired dreams. The community’s response to Devious Dreams has been unbelievably inspiring and we want to thank everyone for participating, sharing your creative visions, and even just commenting to support artistic endeavors! If you aren’t familiar with Devious Dreams, there’s still a chance to put your dream forward! We want to hear about an art-related project you wish you could undertake, and what you need in order to make it a reality. What People Have Said So Far! “Part of the excitement is seeing the different types of projects people have come up with. I’ve been reading all the comments since day one and I invite others to do the same. Some people have shared community projects, personal projects, or are simply seeking the means to continue doing the work that they’re currently doing. But they’re all equally as passionate at their craft. It’s definitely going to be interesting to see what happens in the end and, hopefully, even if you don’t leave with a monetary prize, you’ll leave with a new friend (or friends), new knowledge, and an increased drive to get to do what you want in the long run.” —@savagefrog “It's such a great opportunity for artists to turn a dream into a reality and the best thing is that to apply is as simple as presenting your project in a comment! I think it’s a great initiative from DeviantArt, an opportunity to support the artistic community in a very real way, something that I don't see often in other sites.” —@thiefoworld “Giving people an opportunity to have their dream granted is great, especially for those who are disabled like myself, or just can't get the funds to make things happen. My group, @My-Lumia is about helping people by giving them characters to bond with and use freely, preferably with the help of a therapist, through the use of creative activities. It’s all about self improvement, facing challenges, having a place to have fun with others, and much more. I was able to obtain a super group as part of the Devious Dreams event, for which I am grateful. Because of the Devious Dreams project, I have gotten more people who are interested in helping, and have moved to make things happen in what ways I can.” —@celestialsunberry Creative Participation! We’ve been avidly reading through the thousands of comments on the Devious Dreams journal and enjoying the wide variety of ideas that everyone has put forward! Some projects have been grand, sweeping ideas that would take a lot of individual work, while others have been more modest projects involving upgrading old hardware or getting art supplies to create more of what they’re already working on. Some of you have shared ideas and are supportive of one another’s projects, like this conversation between @retr0dude and @celiest, and we love that! Thank you for showing support for your fellow artists! A few of you have come up with some humorous ideas, including a few that reminded us of a familiar Kickstarter project from 2014, like this one from @rubenraphaelart: Making Dreams a Reality! Because of the amazing community response to Devious Dreams, we started funding some creative dreams early, and actually awarded an additional $2,500 in prizing last week to help some worthy deviants strive for their creative futures. Ranging from things like pen nibs and Photoshop subscriptions to pottery wheels and oil paints, these deviants put forward their goals and are going to have their chance to explore those ideas!"Wheel Away Sweet Sister" by @majorasmasks "Full-Length Comic" by @digitaldesignation "Forever Blooming" by @awkwaard "Anatomy on Self-learning" by @manese55 "Dice!" by @allviran-art "Comic - Fear The Water" by @dingo-paws "Capture the city- Plein air" by @livia-anna "Learning sculpture, as a beginner" by @bronzehalo "OIL!" by @mrbonecracker We also recently awarded another $2,000 in prizing to some deserving deviants as part of a Facebook livestream! Performer and voice actress Erika Ishii hosted the festivities, featuring voice actor Gary Anthony Williams doing readings of literature submitted to DeviantArt, clay sculpting games with @humblehills @ekud and @HeartsUnchained and much more! If you didn’t get a chance to see the stream when it was happening live, have no fear! You can still watch the full video!Submit Your Idea by March 31st! Moving forward, we will be awarding $20,000 in prizing to ambitious deviants for their projects on or around April 3rd. If you haven’t participated yet, there is still time! Submit your project in a comment on the Devious Dreams journal by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on March 31st, 2019, for your chance to reach your creative evolution! Submit Your Idea » Share Your Thoughts! We’d like to hear from you! Share one of your favorite project submissions in a comment on this journal, be it yours or someone else's!
