bigger size King Kong by AliceInDrawingland

With  12,900 :points:





Welcome to my second contest


3 years ago, I held my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest in 2012 with total 39,600 :points:  That event still makes me poor but very pleased until now. =P 

In 2015, I am quite lucky in art. I won lots of points from many contests throughout the year.

Now I'm ready to hold a contest again and share 12,900 :points: to other artists.
This event is called...

KING KONG AND I

CONTEST


Yes, the theme of this contest is about King Kong and a woman.
I believe that almost all of you have seen King Kong movies at least once from 1933, 1976 or 2005 version.
 So, this event is like 10 year anniversary for the last time we saw King Kong.

King Kong 2005-Vastatosaurus Rex 1 by GiuseppeDiRosso

King Kong is a giant gorilla living on Skull Island. He is one of the greatest monsters on earth.  
And the relationship between him and a woman from mainland is so exceptional.
At first, King Kong was interested in that woman, and then fell in love with her. He would do anything to have her by his side, while the woman was so afraid of King Kong. She tried to run away, but she finally could feel his love, and then cared for him at the end.

I think it would be interesting to see some talented artists around DA portraying this timeless story again in this contest.

RULES


1. You must depict a scene between King Kong and his woman in your entry.
It can be a romantic scene, action scene, thrilling scene, sad scene, lovely scene or even funny scene, etc.
You can add other animal and human if you want, but there must always be King Kong and his woman being seen in your entry. 

And please remember the fact that the size of King Kong is so big that he can hold his woman in one hand. I guess her height is around the height of King Kong's head or a little bit shorter.

Kong - Speed Painting by Keriberrygirl
The background can be in a forest somewhere on Skull Island,
or on a big ship among the sea where King Kong was captured and delivered to America,
or on the top of the Empire State Building or even on the torch of Liberty Statue in New York City, etc
It's all up to your imagination. You have 100% freedom to create your entry in your own way.

2. Your entry can be : photomanipulationtraditional and digital drawing/painting, 3D art, and mixed media. 
But your entry can not be photography, cosplay, artisan craft/sculpture and literature.

3. It must be a new work made especially for this contest after November 1, 2015. 

4.
 The size of your entry must be at least 600 pixels in its shortest length. The bigger the better. 

5. No watermark. And if you really want to put your name or URL of your gallery, please place it carefully. 
Too big fonts on a wrong position can ruin your beautiful work and your chance to win. 

6
. Anyone can join this contest. You don't have to be my watcher. ( But I'll appreciate it if you are. )

7. You can submit up to 2 entries. But only one of them can win.

8. I have my right to decline any entry that comes with pornography or any inappropriate thing. 

9
. If your entry is photomanipulation, please put direct link to all the stocks that you used especially the gorilla stock and the woman stock. Don't just put link to profile page of stock providers.
There are many free gorilla stocks on DA that you can use as King Kong. You also can use stocks outside DA as long as they are legitimate. I'm so interested to see how you transform gorilla into King Kong. :)
