    The Spiderman Challenge

    THE SPIDERMAN CHALLENGE



    The7artist7 and I, both being complete Spiderman freaks, have decided to set up the Uber-Amazing-Spidey-Challenge.

    TOPIC:
    Draw Spidey being uber awesome! simple as that!

    The7artist7 also wants to say:
    "One thing is i don't want people to feel stressed or under pressure to make technically super amazing art (of course this is more than welcome!) but I do want contributors to make an effort - my main thing is to have at least one thing dynamic about the piece be it colour quality, pose, action, angle, expression, energy... etc Fresh, Fun & Expression being the key points!"

    SKILL LEVEL / PARTICIPATION:
    Anyone can join and compete, all levels and styles are welcome. Use any medium you like. Just one entry per artist, no WIPs please...

    TIME FRAME:
    Sunday the 13th of July is the end day. Post your finished piece in this thread. A voting thread will be set up and anybody can vote starting Monday the 14th of July...

    JURY:
    Artist who gets the most votes wins (duh)

    PRIZE:
    Bragging rights of course


    SO GET GOIN' ALREADY

    GEE, that rules setup looks awfully FAMILIAR

    I may be in for this. No idea if I'll go for a fully rendered thing or just a sketch. Does it have to adhere closely to the spiderman we all know, or can we do anything that even remotely involves a superhero with spider-like powers? IE are complete re-imaginings allowed?

    EDIT hey, the end day is my birfday

    Hey Jason

    It would be great if you could submit something, sketch or painted piece or any thing in between
    It does have to be Spiderman tho, but you can do 'im in any style (comic, cartoony or ultra real). He can be wearing any of the costumes he's had over the years as well! Anyway, mega cool thread you have there. If you set up a second round, I'll definitely be in
    Happy birthday in advance, man

    cheers bro

    Hey Sundance and jason - nice to have you taking part!

    Yep it's gotta be recognizable 'Spidey' - don't let that restrict creativity though, we want to see your take on the webslinger hero! It can be pretty much anything from a super cool pose to fighting the gigantic yarah-narg ninja warriors from warana-ga-ruhu!

    Would love to see some humor and fun, and remember - Uber awesome!

    Yeh all the best on your b-day Jason!

    So how we all doin? Any ideas in the pipeline? - not asking for you to post any WIPs here though as I'm kinda thinking it'll be best for now to just post the finals - what do people think?

    I have a couple but ya'll have to check my sketchbook for any sketches and ideas in progress - may post some soon ... for now just some random Spideys that may or may not resemble part of my piece for this challenge!

    And all you dudes and dude-ettes who're checkin this thread (I see you 200+ views) - join up already! ;P

    keep it real all and all the best

    I've got a WIP...but, I'll hold up on posting it until I hear back from you gents on if it is cool to post 'em or not.

    Felt good to put a pencil on paper again...

    Welcome Kauser

    You have a CA sketchbook Sundance? I'd encourage peoples to post wips and ideas in their own sketchbooks and include links to them here

    Can't wait to see everyone's versions of Spidey!

    Trying to figure out how to transfer the thumbnail to larger, but I think I'm getting there. Trouble is getting the pose right. Not looking to win, just to finish for once.

    Aloha lads and lasses
    Asatira, I checked out your sketchbook as well, very cool
    Kauser.ali: Good to have you with us A nice big thwip to you too, buddy!

    On another note, we think you guys should all post just final pieces here. WIPs would make life harder for me and the7artist7 when we get to sorting out the entries and votes. If you like, you can post links to WIPs in your sketchbooks so that we can see how the projects are shaping up.

    take care all

    Lord_regenschirm - who is this strange character of whom you speak!? We only understand 'Spiderman' here... lol

    hehe - Great idea! other superheros too - the black knight is another awesome idea for a challenge!

    the 7artist7 and Mahran: Thanks for checking it out. Add to the challenge, never drawn Spider-man before, but should be fun. He's just so dynamic.

    Thumbs up im in

    i've never done a challenge on here before, but i love spider-man, so i'm in! plus, more stuff for my portfolio is always good lol

    and i totally agree about the black knight, he would be sweet too-maybe a challenge with any comic character we choose?

    laters!

    I just thought about this last night: can we do other Spideys? I'm namely thinking of Spidergirl, but want to get that cleared. (whether I draw her or Spiderman is TBD)

    Hey welcome Gr4f we will be doing further challenges and I don't see any reason why there shouldn't be one as you suggested (possibly not under the Spidey challenge series but would be easy to start a comic characters series )

    Asatira - aha you have brought up a question that has been sneaking around at the back of my mind for a bit now - I feel as this is a Spidey (as in a nickname for SpiderMan) challenge I wouldn't have thought SpiderGirl would be true to the theme which is specifically 'Draw Spidey being uber awesome!'

    Having said that SpiderGirl is also awesome and I think it would be cool to do a challenge for her as well under the Spidey series SpiderGirl and SpiderWoman would be cool to include.

    Rock-on all

    My submission (I think)

    Not sure if I'm submitting correctly, never entered a challenge before, but here goes.

    An old drawing, but one I'm pleased with. I'm too involved in getting my demo reel put together to make new Spidey stuff, so please forgive.

    If I've posted in the wrong place, somehow, just let me know what I've done wrong.

    Hey Clay

    If you were posting a 'final' for the challenge I would say use advanced options and attach your submission as you would with your own sketchbook

    As for your submission ...hmmm old pics - not sure if that really goes with what the challenge is all about (very cool pic though!)... hmmmm kinda cheating methinks :raised eyebrow:

    Would be cool if you could enter something new - even if it is only simple it only needs one element at least that is 'uber' so doesn't have to take ages! (if you can't submit new, no worries but being old work will need to be taken into account with voting)

    Hope you have more spare time/brainspace soon (God knows I need both of those lol!)

    Keep up the good work

    Hey, I would totally be up for this! Although I expect this to be done closer to the end of the week due to work and stuff. Look forward to seeing everyone else's submissions as well.
