    IOW #1 - The Banner

    Illustration of the Week #1: The Banner


    You have been waiting, deep within your artsy caves and you finally see the light.
    The angels sings song of joy and happiness.
    Children grab their mothers skirt and point.
    It's here, the Illustration of the Week challenge is finally afoot!


    Topic
    The first topic is to create a banner for the weekly. Mundane, yes I know. But this is your chance! You can finally do what you've always wanted!
    You will be the best banner creator ever, I just know it.
    There's no theme requirement for this challenge.
    Your illustration can look however you want it. All it has to do is include the text "Illustration of the Week" and the rules (listed below).
    The focus of the banner is the rules, and looking fancy.
    But mostly the rules, so make sure you don't use a font so fancy that the reader has to squint.
    And remember the size, about 1000ishx600ish pixels should do.

    Here's the banners of the other weeklies:
    Creature of the Week
    Character of the Week
    Teen Challenge

    Think you can match that? Sure you can, you're going to beat it!


    Rules
    Here's the rules you have to list in your entry:
    - The entry has to be a full-fledged Illustration. Not simple concepts or designs.
    - No rushed entries, WIPs or sketches.
    - At least 2 WIPs must be shown.
    - Finished piece and WIPs must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline.
    - Colour or black and white, both are allowed.
    - Both traditional and digital mediums are allowed.
    - A border containing entrants username, the topic and challenge number must be added.
    - Image size cannot be too big, nor too small.


    Deadline
    The deadline is Sunday 14th of August, 23:59 GMT
    That means you have about two weeks to create the greatest banner the world has ever seen. Get to it!

    I actually have a pretty neat idea already, if time permits (or if COW and/or CHOW don't come up with topics that are too epic) I'll wip something up!
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    First WIP in this forum? Sweet!

    This was inspired by a number of ideas, one of them being the badge for IOW, except I used a box instead of a book.

    In a last-ditch effort, a witch and her baby boy must flee her world using a sacred family heirloom as she's being hunted by the king's men for the use of witchcraft. Her husband, a knight in the royal army, must stay behind and close the box to ensure no one may follow her. The box's counterpart opens in modern-day New York, in the apartment of an everyday lawyer.

    I'm thinking I'll replace the furniture on the left with the rules.

    i think you should put the "no photography/3D/sculpting" rule in there as well, i bet some ppl are already holding their cameras and blobs of clay

    First of all, for reference, I would damn well better hope some people are already holding their cameras and blobs of clay:

    Secondly, three-dimensional illustration is a perfectly valid form:

    Yes, the moderators discussed the 3D-issue and we decided to leave it open for the moment. If thinks get out of hand, we'll probably incorporate it. But for the moment, it is allowed.

    Thank you for the feedback, though!
