TFW God hates Western Canada
Everything in red is extreme heat warnings - temperatures exceeding 29˚C. Everything in grey are weather quality advisories due to the hundreds of wildfires destroying British Columbia in the West.

Helmet Set 1
Well... everything in my body hurts, especially the joints, but... I still managed to draw something.

These helmet concept, things, are actually early designs for the Otherworlds Table RPG/DnD game that I am currently working on. Expect more to come soon.

Well, guys, Its officially February and stupidly enough, Im back living at home with my twisted parents... again.... ugh. But only because the stupid government cant seem to understand how to give a stress-free life to a rational mind. All I do now is wait for University...

BUT UNTIL THEN! Ive decided to make a LONG-LASTING LEGACY for myself in the form of JEWELLERY
---------------
This contest revolves around artists submitting concept art for a key piece of jewellery (A Ring) that will act as a platform for my legacy. I want this ring to be a beacon and to be an image of beauty and elegance. Its quite simple; submit your art, and the one I like most receives all my points.
I then intend on making a superior custom order for said ring.

RULINGS:
  • Unlimited amount of submissions permit-able.
  • Submissions must be clear and as thorough as possible.
  • Extra consideration will be given to artists who present their works at different angles, show size comparison, anatomically-correct fitting, and measurements in order to give the best impression possible.
  • Extra consideration will also be given when considering the longevity and cost of the ring. That means quality and quantity need to be relatively-equal and the cost should not be hemorrhaging.
  • To ensure proper communication, please also consider sending me a note on here on DA.

Ring Specs
:
- MUST be a size 10 US, (19.8mm inner diameter).
- Cannot be gold or silver-plated, as they rub and wear off. Please use solid gold or sterling silver for your settings.

- THEME: The theme of the ring follows a spacey, nebula, galaxy colour, (Apatite, Alexandrite, Sapphire, Blue Goldstone, Blue Diamond, Labradorite, Various breeds of Opal, are all deep spacey-theme gemstones. Other gemstones may apply), and follows a certain elegant, mysterious, tranquil yet powerful sentiment. Its meant to resemble a kind of tranquility amongst the stars, curious yet destructive when provoked.

- Design: The main feature of the ring MUST be a large aforementioned gemstone. It should fit nicely into the setting and not look too bulgy, nor should the set look "wally", (example: www.etsy.com/ca/listing/509119… ), there should be an elegant flow to the setting of the ring so that everything looks natural. I enjoy the curvaceous theme presented with futuristic design - all those swirls and spherical shapes. For that reason I personally find Filigree rings quite aesthetically-pleasing. I am also quite fond of Antique gothic and Victorian-era rings that seem to have a story behind them.

I also like to obscure the edges of the main gemstone, so that everything seems expertly-interconnected, a sort of dance thats present with the setting, (example: www.etsy.com/ca/listing/215079… ), as well as subtle variations in colour as everything locks together.

Examples:
www.etsy.com/ca/listing/255318…
   
    This ring's main feature is a circular woven band of emerald beads that give the viewer's impression that the ring consists of one, large, royal emerald. Atop the emerald cluster is a spider-like rhinestone motif that extends outwards from the middle of the gem cluster. Even while different in colour, the rhinestone bands compliment the emerald beading as they are set in very much the same way, allowing the viewer to individually see each rhinestone in the strip. Together, the dark vibrant greens and the shining whites reflect against one another, creating an iridescent effect that can only be summarized as enchanting. The ring captivates it's audience wonderfully, using the distracting setting of the rhinestones to hide the fact that the main piece consists of beaded emeralds and not one gigantic royal gemstone. In light of this, some may find this ring to be a dull, boring imperfection. However, I personally appreciate the delicate cutting involved in segmenting and connecting so many brilliant stones - to diligently capture the curvaceous aspects in the art of jewellery. While all the all the individual piecing may overwhelm the eye, none of us can deny the effect that comes with inspecting such curvaceous art time and time again...

www.etsy.com/ca/listing/172338…

    As described by its maker, this stunning feature is comprised of "two oval-shaped cabochon Blue Sapphires set in a bypass twist setting surrounded with pave set light blue sapphire handcrafted in Black Plated Sterling Silver" (No idea what any of that means, but it sounds hella cool and looks awesome). To merely accept these words would not suffice as there much more about this piece than some superficial description's summarization - the snaking harmony it exhibits is too much to ignore.
