Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities. CLOSED!!!

Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:05 am

Ladies and Gentlemen, newcomers and veterans of Snafu, welcome to the first semi-annual Snafu Art Contest, taking place in the summer of 2013! All kinds of artists, both professional and hobbyists come together in order to create a drawing related to the contests theme for an opportunity to win fame*, fortune**, and a fabulous prize: A commision by bleedman!

Image

Everyone has a chance to win!


Keeping in line with our first summer contest, our first theme shall be, fittingly:

“Summertime Activities.”

So with that in mind, go out there and draw anything you feel is under that theme, be it you hanging out at the beach, having a barbeque, or having a stroll in the great outdoors. You can draw yourself and your friends, or fan art based on your favorite Snafu comics, or perhaps your own characters. Whichever you feel like.

Voting will be done by fellow members of Snafu, making this a community activity. Along with everyone else, there will be three anonymous judges who will critique your work and vote alongside you, and who will, ultimately, decide which piece of art stands out from the rest, with your votes as backing. The winner of the contest will then receive a free commission from Bleedman, the artist behind Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi, Grim Tales, Sugar Bits and more. So do your best to impress!

There are specific areas we want to inform you about and how things are organized.


The Voting thread: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=54947

Your Art thread
Within the Art Section you can create your own thread and name it in a way that identifies it as yours. This is your portfolio were you can post your art. Post your entry here as a "ticket" to participate, AND post a link to your entry in the main contest thread.

The entire contest itself will take place for one month as soon as it opens: We are planning on opening in the beginning of July. THE CONTEST IS A GO!

Feel free to ask questions too, btw.

Surely there should be some kind of opening for those who are new in art?

If by opening you mean they've got a chance, yes.

Re: Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities.

Mon Jun 24, 2013 1:02 pm

The contest is open to anyone and everyone, regardless of skill level.

What if you don't have an art profolio to show? can you still join?

The reason we have a "portfolio" is to know that you are submitting your art and not the art work of someone else. So if you have a DA, photobucket, whatever, that is fine. It's just we need a way to know that what you are submitting is your own. We need that. So I would counsel that if you don't have one to get one. Its easy to set an account up on DA, for example.

I don't want to flat out and say no, but it is a requirement that is needed. If you have difficulty presenting one, or concerns with it then just PM me and we can work something out.

I also want to further point out that any art median is good for the contest. So you can draw, paint, even take pictures.

That's what I meant, what if you just want to throw in a picture and don't have a portfolio.

I mean, you'll obviously know because the picture will probably suck but still.

This seems like fun, its been a long time since I last entered a contest.

This seems fun to watch.

I see what you mean. You don't need an existing portfolio to enter, but we need to know where the image is coming from. For example, you want to join this. You go out and you open say a DA account. That account is where you upload your pictures to from your computer and to the site. So you can have a DA, we know its yours, and you post a link to that, and then upload your picture.

Does that help clear things up a little bit?

For those without already existing portfolios who wish to enter, I think a way around the rule would be to periodically post photos of your work in progress, on whichever site you choose to upload your art. That way you can prove that it really was you who worked on the art, rather than you just starting a new account and uploading someone else's art there.

This sounds interesting. Hmmm... :)

Blood's suggestion seems to be the best.

May I enter?

Re: Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities.

Of course.

Now all you need to do is register this as a contest on dA. Also hashtag it if necessary.

Re: Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities.

We'd certainly appreciate it if people helped spread word of this contest. The more advertising we get, the better.

I've announced it on a couple of Bleedman Fan pages on DA, but I'm going to let Bleedman do his own announcement of it.

Which should have been up by now...

can copyrighted characters count?

Re: Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities.

Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:25 am

The best thing would be to use characters that appear in bleedman's comics if it has to be copyrighted characters, but in the end it is all up to you. :)

Re: Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities.

Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:28 am

I was thinking like a character form his comic with a copyrighted one

Re: Snafu Art Contest: 2013 - Summer Activities.

Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:36 am

That would be fine.
