Starock Weekly Challenge

The Starock Challenge is a weekly contest divided into 2 categories, 2D Rock-Off and Starlite Photo, rotating between photography and 2D art, each challenge lasts 2 weeks.

I'll be doing the 2D concept challenges, visit zemotion for info on the Photograph challenge.

Every 2 weeks a new 2D Challenge will begin, with a different topic/theme each time. Each Challenge will run for approximately 10 days. In which all the entries will be posted into one Journal for deviants to view and comment.

I thought #22 was friggin awesome but it didn't even get a runner-up nod... and #10 being my second favorite, also didn't. Do I have strange taste or something? Haha. Anyway, congrats to the winners.
nJoo's avatar
I guess it's just one of those round that the final choice was hard and each one was good in their own way and we had to make a tough choice T_T
Dante365's avatar
Shame Benchi and Spazizoner weren't up there, but apart from that, the top three winners were the one's I'd expect to win, so congratulations guys and/or girls. ;)
Nether83's avatar
Wow! Third place tie for me. Thank you for that.

Too bad for AstroHelix not making it. I was sure he'd rank above me. No surprise in Frankhong winning as it was my favorite one too.

It was a fun Rock-Off and I'm eager to start the next one.
lakuma's avatar

HowlSeage's avatar
How did i guess frank would get #1, lol. Damn him, haha.
AstroHelix's avatar
Nicely done, winners! :) I'll have to try harder next time!
InsgesamtIngobert's avatar
Unfortunately, my favourite isn't placed (and myself neither :D). But I learned a lot during painting and it was really fun. Congrats to the winners! :)
nJoo's avatar
which one was your favorite? I'd love to hear other's opinion too! :D
InsgesamtIngobert's avatar
My favourite was number 10, because of the colours and the lighting. :) I think it looks really cool.
hakubaikou's avatar
Yay, my favorite one placed! :) Congrats to the winners! And thanks so much for running this contest, nJoo. This one was a really fun theme.

I'll have the time to enter one of these eventually....I know it! The entries are amazing this round, I cat wait to see what the next challenge is!
mitosiskain's avatar
awww I missed it
Dante365's avatar
I actually finished my entry this time.......just a shame I can't draw backgrounds at all, I guess. Wanted him to be in some kindof neon cyberpunk universe, but do I have enough imagination? Nope.

Hehe, anyway good luck everyone. You're all miles better than me lol, but it was fun, so I wouldn't mind doing another sometime.
dothaithanh's avatar

(njoo sir ? what is the next topic, please tell me , a secret information ? ;) )
nJoo's avatar
Hehe that's the spirit! But honestly I really like yours in terms of the concept, totally original, and the picture totally tells a story, which imo isn't easy to achieve and takes time and effort~ anyways, thanks for ur entry!
dothaithanh's avatar
... then .. and , how about the secret information ? >_< !

you really like it ? even it not actractive much or even to many things deal with the main char or too much unnesesary detail or , ...>_<..
anyway ,just know you like it make me can draw another or another contest , i really want to control well the color or the skill to make my ideal clearer and more actractive ..
then , the next context ? o__O
Thrakks's avatar
Seeing some of those submissions, I feel out of my league.
Flynn-the-cat's avatar
You get a free feature, though :D
Thrakks's avatar
yup, that is pretty much enough in itself!
AstroHelix's avatar
There is no league at this contest! I mean sure, I'm shakin' in my boots here too, but this is all about having a reason to push your art to its limits. I've entered before and didn't win and I was all sad about it, but I saw a ton of awesome art along the way and I think I've improved for it. I'm honored to have my stuff displayed next to so many great artists' work win or not! ;)
Thrakks's avatar
Heh, very true!
Dante365's avatar
Lol, I actually did do an entry for the previous one, but it was so unfinished it was untrue..........I can't actually colour properly yet, and I'm still trying to figure anatomy and perspective out for myself.

Might go up to uni next year, so hopefully that'll help. Anyway, I have an entry in the works for this one too. Done a fair amount of it actually, but need to work out what colours I want, and what kind of crazy clothes he might have.

Ah well, 5 days left still, technically, so hopefully it'll be done in time. It's just a bit of fun anyway. Who cares where anyone is placed....it's the taking part and having fun that counts. :p
