[C. Y. XXXII]- Artist Collaborations!

Postby Aneri » Mon Oct 01, 2007 9:04 am

[center]CHALLENGE YOURSELF XXXII
Collaborations!
Challenge Yourself is an Official Snafu Art forum contest. It operates on a bi-weekly cycle, as explained below. The prize is respect, and having your image preserved for prosperity in the 'hall of win'. As the title suggests, the idea is not to best each other, but to best yourself![/center]

THEME
This week's theme is collaborations. This is the theme that was voted in during the last challenge. The subject is a broad one, so I'm open to pretty much anything you guys can come up with. This contest should be judged on how well you work together with one another, and I'm sure you guys will work the best when you choose the theme! Also, it is not limited to only 2 people, but...more than 2 can get confusing. Just a warning, heh.

RULES
  • Only visual art allowed. Art must conform with the Snafu Art forum rules.
  • Art must be created WITHIN the cycle time. You MAY NOT use art you created last week, last month, last year, or ever before this cycle. These pieces may be posted as demonstration of the theme, but MUST be marked as previous work.
  • Multiple submissions totally allowed.
  • Submissions must be related to the theme in some way. This is fairly open to interpretation, but it shouldn't be too hard for people to see how it is related.
  • Please do not include any forum member in your entry without asking permission first.
  • Judges are off-limits for entries.

*Rules are subject to change within three days for items I may have forgotten.

Judging
Submissions will be judged by ZOULART. In the event of my absence, I will appoint a guest judge. The criteria for judging are: CREATIVITY, EXECUTION (skill), and EFFORT. Please note that you are judged against YOURSELF (your previous demonstrated works) and not so much against each other!! In this contest, a new artist who puts in a tremendous amount of creativity and effort can defeat an experienced artist who has more skill and experience, but didn't push themselves.

Judges may enter pieces into the contest, but they will be exhibition only. Any person may also mark their own submission as 'exhibition' and it will not be judged.

The Process
Challenges operate on a two week cycle. The contest officially begins on MONDAY.

MONDAY: Contest begins, submissions accepted. Submissions will be accepted until the FRIDAY after next (almost 2 weeks later). (Start: Monday, October 1st)

FRIDAY after next: Winners will be announced, no more submissions accepted (but may be posted just as exhibition). SUGGESTIONS for the next Challenge begins. I reserve the right to reject challenge suggestions based on vague-ness, being too similar to a recent challenge, or unfeasibility. ONE SUGGESTION PER MEMBER. You may change or withdraw your suggestion ONLY before the poll begins. (Submission end: Friday, October 19th, 2007!!)

SATURDAY: A poll will be put up in the same thread with the suggestions. Voting begins. Suggestions will no longer be accepted once I start to create the poll. (Saturday, October 20th)

SUNDAY: The poll will close, and the winning suggestion becomes the next challenge. In the event of a tie, I will cast the tie-breaking vote (I will not vote in the poll except in this event.) (Sunday, October 21th)

Good Luck!

Hey, just a note, if you're entering the Challenge Yourself art contest this week, might I suggest a group gathering on PChat to get used to drawing with other people? I've done a lot of collaborations on it with a few friends of mine already, and it's a fun way to do it. It's perfect tool for rough copies and brainstorming ideas.:3

Yes! Don't feel limited to PChat! Some artists prefer to work on an illustration at the same time, others alternate between steps ( sketching, lineart, bg, coloring, etc).

Meh, I could use a colorist, too. I can take care of the drawing part if somebody wants to make it all inky and colorful for me.
Too good for you.

I could color for you, if you don't mind dealing with a mediocre colorist (if that).

You're probably better than I am in that area. If I draw something and submit it, it's up for grabs to whoever wants to color it.
Too good for you.

Okay, well I better rephrase myself. I can color for anyone who's looking for a colorist and wants to do a real collaboration. This goes vice versa too. I can work with anyone in drawing something and then the partner can color it. Ooor skip the coloring entirely and just draw something together. I'm pretty much game for anything since I have time to do one thing versus both drawing and coloring.

Jealous aren't we *snicker*
Yeah, I know. That's why I'm not making any promises.

And why aren't you on messenger? We need to discuss stuff!

If you're still looking for a partner, I don't have one yet and my weekend's pretty much free. I can do color or lineart. I'd be happy to partner with you if you want. My AIM is under the link, and my computer's always on, so if I don't get the message immediately, I'll get it sometime that day. I'm typically free after 7pm EST every day except Thursday.:3

Just a reminder!!

Collabs are NOT limited to one person doing the lineart and the other doing the colouring!! I realize everyone wants to do the lineart vs. the colouring... this can be avoided by collabing in a DIFFERENT WAY.

What if you can't draw together due to the fact that you don't live anywhere near the person you're working with, and you don't have a tablet?

Wow, your imagination is totally limited.

Collaboration is also not limited to actually physically or digitally drawing at the same time on the same piece of 'paper'.

Added after 1 hours 9 minutes:

OK fine, since I think it would be a shame for this contest to turn up only "one draws/one colours" collabs, here are some examples of OTHER types of collab.

Again, THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY KINDS OF COLLABS! Stretch your minds!

The images and links that follow are EXHIBITION.

1) Collab by Common Theme

This is a collab I took part in about a year ago. (warning: image is massive) The theme was red/black: draw your character in black with red accessories. The images were then stitched together digitally to form a singular composition. As you can see you do NOT need to have access to a tablet/Pchat OR be in the same location to do this. One person will need to do the shopping.

2)Collab by common composition

Image

This is a collab that I did in 2003. We did this together in a Pchat known as Open Canvas. You could also conceivably do this by being in the same room, I suppose, but it would be tough. OC is the EASIEST way to achieve this, but not the ONLY way. A common composition like this could be stitched together by a clever person with photoshop, and with smart planning.

We each coloured our own character in this drawing and we both worked on the background.

3) Comic Jam

Image

This is a type of collab that I take part in every month or so. The concept of this particular jam is that subsequent panels are drawn by different artists, with no plan. Every single panel on this page was drawn by a different artist, and we were all in the same room passing around pieces of paper.

HOWEVER, a comic jam can be done with as few as TWO people, and you can either alternate panels, or lines, or pages... and this could EASILY be achieved at a distance by drawing and scanning subsequent panels and stitching them together later.

Again, this list is STILL not exhaustive. BE CREATIVE! There are tons of ways for artists to collab.
