Since quite a lot of you guys seemed to be interested in a contest I decided to arrange one.
It's the first time I'm doing that, but still I hope I put all information being necessary into the pdf you can download by clicking on the following link:
www.jennyeight.com/uploaded/co…

IMPORTANT: When you save it on your computer you will get the high quality,by only opening it through the internet you'll probably get a pixeled resolution, since the file is quite big.

There will not only be a prize for the winners of the contest, but also for one of the persons advertising this contest by telling his/ her watchers, so also if you are not interested in the contest itself you should have a look at the "Prizes" area to learn more about it!


Nonetheless: Here the full text of the pdf-Document again;

Contest

In General, please read:
This is a private drawing and painting contest, so please upload your entries (only drawings or paintings) onto your own dA-Gallery and send the THUMB in a note to my "Jennyeight"-Account.
(The Thumb-Number can be found at the "Details"-Area of your uploaded deviation!)
Please write a detailed description about your piece of art and everything else you always wanted to tell me into the artist's comment, when uploading it, and PLEASE don't send in works in progress!

The contest will end at 29th of February 2012, CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME.
(Since the contest is private and pretty small, there's of course the chance to extend the time span if required.)

Theme:
I made up a very rough theme, since I think the most important part of drawing and painting is both, drawing skills and creativity working together.
So here's your very simple guideline:

I want to see your creativity by using one of the following colors in your drawing/ painting: Blue, Purple/Violet or Red.
Take one of those colors and create a color scheme based on it and use it in your drawing/ painting.
You can choose the situation and theme of the picture yourself, as long as it fits to the color you chose.
It doesn't matter if the character shown on your art is your own creation or an already existing character (as long as you credit the owner in the artist's comment), important for me is, that you create a painting/drawing with a given color scheme, that's … well, alive, and that works with the color scheme you chose.
There can be more than one character in the painting, of course, but at least one person needs to be in the focus of the picture!

Prizes:
There will be two winners, one in the drawing and on in the painting category.
These two will win a one year premium membership (or the points instead) plus a free commission worth 100 Dollars.
The second place finishers will get a three month premium membership and a commission worth 50 Dollars.
The third place in both categories will be a three month premium Membership.

On top of that there will be a prize for one of you guys who is advertising the contest on his/ her own page (in a journal or whatever), independent on the fact whether he or she partizipated in the contest his/herself.
So if you advertise it, send a note to me with the link where you advertised it and you will be on my list.
After the contest is over I will pick a random partizipant of this list who will get the same prize as the winner of the contest:  a one year premium membership and a commission trade worth 100 Dollars.


Requirements:
Since a colored artwork is requirement for this contest please don't send in pencil sketches and linearts.
You need to do either a colored drawing or a painting (digitally or traditionally created).
I'm sorry, but other genres of art won't be part of this conest, so please do not send in other types of art, such as photography or literature, etc.

The painting must be uploaded with at least 800x800 pixels.

Also do not steal someones artwork or copy and paste images.

Please remember that there's also younger watchers, so don't show mature content in your painting/ drawing, like violence and sexual stuff. Nudity is allowed as far as it is artistically and not dirty in any case.

Judgement:
The judgement is mainly based on two things:
1) How well you implemented the basic theme of the contest in your own creation, the originality of your piece of art and your idea in general
2) Drawing and painting skills: Composition, colors, proportions, etc.,
IMPORTANT: The judgement of you skills is independent from the drawing genre you chose for your creation, e.g. anime, realism, etc.


I hope some of you find the time to participate in this contest!

Oh, by the way, does someone of you know how to write News articles?
I never wrote one before and since the changed the dA-System once again I have no clue about it now ^^

Lots of love

Können wir auch andere Farben verwenden oder nur die zwei (mit schwarz und weiß)?

Ugh, wahrscheinlich werde ich ja auch nicht teilnehmen bei all den talentierten Leuten hier... Digital art ist so schwer und traditionell habe ich noch nicht mit Farbe gearbeitet. :D

:iconjennyeight:
Jennyeight Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
Du darfst jede Farbe nehmen, die du willst, solange das Farbscheme selbst die Farben rot, blau oder violett enthält ^^
Also ich persönlich würde mich freuen, wenn du teilnimmst ^^

Das Farbscheme? Meinst du damit das Hauptobjekt oder die gesamte "Komposition"?
Mal sehen, vielleicht entscheide ich mich ja doch noch. ;)

Ich meine die Gesamtkomposition; Wenn du dir z.B. meine Bilder anschaust dominiert immer irgendein Farbmotiv, aber das heißt ja nicht, dass ich keine anderen Farben benutze ^^

I'm going to try to learn some digital techniques... I've got the base of what I want to do, but it's bright and backgroundless. Let's see if I can learn enough to create mood lighting and background digitally (very hopeful :P)
