    Open challenge of ultimate destiny

    open challenge of
    -

    So Chaoticknight and I were feeling the need to get our butts in gear and get excited over art again. For one reason or another DEEP isn't really tickling our fancies so we decided to create a mini thunderdome.

    TOPIC:
    Divine Prophecy
    Interpret this in any way you like. The goal is to create a communicative and beautiful piece of art. You can have a short (small paragraph) description if you like, but the art should also be able to stand on its own and communicate the theme effectively.

    SKILL LEVEL / PARTICIPATION:
    Anyone can join and compete. ChaoticKnight and I are pretty much intermediate and it would be nice if there was a level playing field but really, if you want to join say so here. We're not going to chase anyone down for their submissions either, so make sure you keep an eye out for updates.

    TIME FRAME:
    Sunday July 6th is the end day: post your finished piece in this thread (please only edit posts to update your artwork, so only one post with artwork in it) anytime on Sunday so that I can make a voting thread for this on Monday.

    JURY:
    By popular poll on Monday, July 7th (not sure how long it'll last, 3 days?)

    ---------------

    LIST SO FAR:
    Jason Ravinville
    ChaoticKnight
    lord_regenschirm
    Angel_Virus_X
    TZA
    Asatira
    GoatFetus
    Aila
    dmitri
    Etcheberri
    Aneru
    misledtomisery
    Lake
    Ilaekae
    StrangestFruit
    The Whistler
    kauser.ali


    So join the hell up and let's get this going!

    Okay guys looks like we have a decent amount of people so I guess we can 'start' which I guess doesn't mean much anyways since the topic was always revealed. Start when you want and if people want to join in still, come on in, there's no deadline for signing up.

    So far the deadline looks to be 2 weeks from tomorrow, Sunday July 6th. Good luck.

    EDIT: angel virus x.... Chris is that you?

    I wanted to get into DEEP, but I got intimidated. This is more my scale. I'm in.

    Alright, count me in aswell... I have a bad feeling I'm going just add more to my current stress levels but oh well!
    I can't reach your standards but let's see what I can pull out of my pencils.

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Eh, doesn't look at all finished, but I lack the skills to push it further... waah.

    ARGH!!! What's suddenly going on with the DEEP challenge, the last time I checked it it didn't seem half as exciting as it does now! ... Man, what a pity ... July 30th is deadline

    dmitri, if I know you, I know you can push that a lot further than that. You have the skills to pound my puny head into the dirt.

    Got a little progress going. Have a general layout figured out. Going to get some research for clothing, then really get to drawing. WIP should be up this weekend. (That's the plan anyway.)

    I've got an idea that might work if you have room for a rank amateur...

    Compared to most of the people here who have been doing classic realistic work for years, I really am an amateur. I worked as a printmaker, sculptor and graphic designer/cartoonist most of my life, and my paintings were all surrealist pieces something like Klee or the Mexican muralists would do, so this stuff is a bit new to me. Thanks for the compliment, anyway...







    oooOOOoooo....nice ass, too...

    So Last Man Standing - a competition where the best of the best come out to play - is easy enough to join, yet our humble little gathering is too intimidating?

    haha, I'm in.



    ...so long as I get a girl scout badge for participating.


    my "helped an old lady cross the street badge" will have to make room for this one.

    While I admit your opinion has a measure of quantifiable merit, I refuse to acknowledge the validity of your statement, the fact maintaining that the Machiavellian concepts introduced in your argument are at best, outdated.

    Well if you didn't join up, it would just look like you follow Illaekae around, waiting for him to post.

    Assuming you mean my final piece, at the rate I work, the little fucker would be dead of old age by then...
