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.

2D Rock-Off #2:

Steampunk Fairytale

The Topic is Steampunk Fairytale
Your choice of an existing fairytale character(s) in steampunk era/style. (I'm not sure if there was some confusion before and I'll assume I didn't make it clear, I never like to be harsh on rules but...ya please use existing fairytale

More then one char's fine if it helps the picture, but just remember it's not judged by the quantity, it's the creativity and execution ;)

It's a bit hard to describe, so I'm hoping people that dunno might do a bit of research.
-Think Miyazaki, Steamboy, China Miéville,etc.
-Industrial, coal burning, pipes, gears, goggles, brown are some of the many example of steampunk.
-"...historical periods (usually the 19th century) to works set in fantasy worlds that rely heavily on steam- or spring-powered technology"
-Random samples... Steampunk Cyborg Palanquin by rsandberg:thumb87544742:
-Interpret it whatever way you want
-It'll be judge by it's creativity and rock factor~ blah blah blah.


Next round would begin in a few days~ A little bit busy these few days

Here're the winners for first round, please feel free to comment (encouraged) on entries you like (or dislike)

Comment: The judging is really getting hard, there're many entries I'd honestly say is tie, and please do understand that we try our best to balance the creativity as well as the technical art skill as fair as we can.  

Starting next round~ I'll make sure to comment on every single entries just as an appreciation for everyone's effort, I know it's not much.. but every time judging time comes, there're so many I'd like to include in the list of the top entries and I feel bad that I have to limit it to 5 runners up~ T_T

(I'm still trying to find an easier and better way to judge/voting system)

Anyways here're the winners!

Opps sorry about the link. I thought I knew what i was doing.
DaineN's avatar
lol i've got a grain of sand now :D
everyone whom i though deserved winning, got them rocks in the end; it's good judgment and hearty congrats to them :) i would like to know though, if there was anything wrong with mine or what could have been done to it to make it better ^^;
nJoo's avatar
I'm honestly say there's nothing wrong with yours, and i swear and not just being nice, if I could I would put 20 runners up, cuz there're just so many nice ideas in the entries! When I first started to do the contest, I only meant for it to have a winner, that's it, then I thought it deserve 2nd and 3rd, then I saw 100 entries, then I added 5 runner up slot, but honestly there should be more, I try to balance the creativity, technical skill and effort (yes effort too hehe) as much as I can (or we can ). And looking at your piece again, I think it's awesome and I can't say why it's not at the runners up. I can definately tell ur effort and appreciate it a tonne~! I hope it doesn't discourage u that it's not appreciated, the judgin's just way too hard. and if it helps, ur piece had some points too in the judgin, but it didn't make the top 8 after adding it up~ keep up the nice work, and thx again~
DaineN's avatar
Thanks nJoo, you're very nice to have runner ups, more happy to go around :) And definitely those who were chosen have done very well in their pieces! Can't imagine how you guys managed to rank them at all *Sigh* need to buck up more i guess :D

Thanks again for holding these contests, i'm sure to be back to try again some time, so keep up the great hosting and interesting topics!

Congrats to the winners! Well deserved prizes! :clap::clap::clap:
InsgesamtIngobert's avatar
congrats to the winners :) maybe I would've chosen some other entries, but I know it's hard to judge (glad I don't have to do it :D) and everyone has his own opinion. I'm sure the winners deserve it.
Nice to see so many entries here, I'm looking forward to the next round.
Cique's avatar
My 2 favourites ended up 2nd and 3rd :D Though I personally wouldn't have had that picture in 1st place, I like the background and machine alot, but I am not overly keen on her face - also I believe, though can't be certain, that is was not originally based on an existing fairytale as it was a while later that is was mentioned it was Cinderella and the glass slippers were added in, which I feel to some extent is a bit unfair of the other artists who understood the rules originally - I don't mean to sound harsh, I like the picture in itself...
Others I liked that aren't runners up are Poisondlo's and I liked the design of Odingraphics'
Cique's avatar
oh and I liked the tower of LordVenom05's

Also AstroHelix may have a point, though I generally agree with the choices, and my favourite pieces have ended up in the top 3 so far, it would be nice to have a wider variety of judges, it's only been 2 competitions so it's really too early say yet
AstroHelix's avatar
Not that I dissagree with the choices, they are all very well done, but it seems like there is only one style that passes for the top ranks so far in this contest. The winners here and on veggie all look very painterly, there isn't a whole lot of difference in the basic approach to these winning pieces. If this is just the opinion of the judges, I guess that's just the way the cookie crumbles, and I should look for some other event where the judges are quite so similar in their tastes!

Sweeeeet! Congrats to the winners! Awesome entries.

And yay! Thank you so much for including mine as a Runner Up! :D This contest is so much fun. I'm really looking forward to future themes.
