Default [WAR VII] Graphics Art Competition



Welcome to the WAR VII Graphics Art Competition!

This year, you are all rather fortunate that I am not participating, but unfortunate that I am your judge. But please, do not allow yourselves to be intimidated by me. I am looking forward to see quality entries that reflect high levels of creativity and display thourough knowledge of graphic design. In this year's competition, three points will be given out per week: one for the best overall composition, one for the most unique artistic style, and one for the best display of the weekly theme. As always, there are rules that must be abided by at all times during the competition:
  • Do not steal any artwork or use any stock images/renders without the expressed permission of the owner.
  • All entries must comply with PE2K's code of conduct.
  • All entries must respect the given guidelines for the current week.
  • Each contender may submit up to two entries per week.
  • The period of entry for each week will be from 12:01 AM EST on Monday to 11:59 PM EST on Friday.
  • Any entries submitted before or after the entry period will be disregarded.
  • Saturday will be the day where I post results and give out the theme for the next week. This also gives you one day to work before submitting entries.

Now that we are done with the technicalities, I have a word of advise that you should keep in mind: remember that this is not a signature competition, but rather a graphics art competition, and that I am looking for "large pieces" and not signature tags.
Everyone try your best and don't hold back because of your current art program. Not everyone needs Photoshop to be a good artist, and everyone's entries will be accepted no matter what program they are using.

Restrictions:
  • Maximum height is 800 pixels.

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

Week I Entries:

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


~Falcon~ and Robert the War Lord (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: The Lonely Samurai
Description: The Lonely Samurai is a dark piece that is sort of the anti-theme to teamwork. He works alone living in solitude and depression, which is why this piece is so dark. See, if he had a partner it would make things easier, or better. Point being, working by your self sucks, teamwork is better.


Wisp and Hakken (One Against All)
Title: Teamwork
Description: This banner is of Roxas and Axel, traveling together. By traveling together makes everything a lot easier. You can share everything, your pain, your emotions and your feelings. Working together is the way forward, which is why our render is of Roxas pointing forwards.


Sigma_ and ~Falcon~ (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Shaky Alliance
Description: Faustin and Dimitri of Grand Theft Auto IV are pictured. Although the two characters' personalities contrast each other, they still manage to work successfully together, but for how long?

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

Week II Entries:

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


EmBreon (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Balance
Description: I thought of Superman as soon as I read the theme. Anyone who is even vaguely familiar with his story knows of all of the sacrifices he makes throughout his life, and which is more important to him: Humanity, or Lois Lane. So I just tried to blend them both together, figuratively and literally, Lois Lane being the focus, and earth/city themed background, to make one complete picture.


Sigma_ (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Feeding the Fishes
Description: In the year 2179, tiny fish are scarce due to excessive dumping in the ocean. Conservationists are dreading the extinction of the shark, now that its feed is depleting. Some go to extreme measures to save their hungry friends.


~Falcon~ (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Sacrifice of the Chicken
Description: Various religions and people sacrifice chickens, so I figured vectoring a chicken being sacrificed fit the theme.


Hakken (One Against All)
Title: Sacrifice
Description: After nearly being sacrificed by a group of rouge Shinigami, Senna sacrifices herself to save Soul Society and the world of the living at the end of the Bleach movie.

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

Week III Entries:

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


~Falcon~ (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Why do you hit me?
Description: I've always loved this stock so and it fit this theme perfectly. The last time I did grunge was back in the days when I brushed. Grunge is in the texture usage.


djax94 (One Against All)
Title: Find me in here?
Description: I think this symbolizes fear pretty well. When I see it I think of a young girl being violently abused, which is pretty damn scary. Grunge around the edges of the gray.


Robert the War Lord (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Death Will Take You
Description: One of man's greatest fears is death... since I couldn't really find anything really related to death that would be easy to see, I decided Death himself would be a nice fit.


Neo Pikachu (League of Urban Dragons)
Title: Fear: Faceless Enemy
Description: Based off of the FPS game FEAR: First Encounter Assault Recon. And if you've played this game, trust me, you know what I'm talking about when it comes to pure fear. Font is from Gears of War.


Sigma_ (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Screw Fear!
Description: They've had enough with these ****** ******' roller coasters on these ****** ******' amusement parks.


rust (Team Aqua)
Title: Don't Blink
Description: A banner based on a Doctor Who episode called 'Blink.' The Weeping Angels come and kill you when you're not looking.

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

Week IV Entries:

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


Robert the War Lord (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: All wars must end
Description: And with that, the end of this war also draws near, like all others should. My description for this piece... just a soldier with a gun and a large gun behind him. The effects of firing the guns were done by me.


EmBreon (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Honor
Description: I tried to give it a feeling of past wars in the background, and current/recent wars in the foreground.


rust (Team Aqua)
Title: The Clashing Tides of Darkness
Description: The first naval battle of the WAR V RP, The Deathwing versus the Tidebreaker is depicted in this epic picture.


Sigma_ (The Underdog Alliance)
Title: Winner
Description: How about it?

Heres Hakken and mine's entry for OAA.

Description: This banner is of Roxas and Axel, travelling together. By travelling together makes everything a lot easier. You can share everything, your pain, your emotions and your feelings. Working together is the way forward, which is why our render is of Roxas pointing forwards.

Clearly a very unique artistic style, and is clearly the opposite of the theme (which is alright this time, I suppose). The flow is very nice and there's nothing flashy or oversaturated. Overall, an excellent piece. However, it's a tag, which isn't recommended.

There are parts of this that I like, but the fractals over the render really ruined it. It would have looked very nice if the render of Roxas and Axel was clear. Other than those fractals, it's very nice. The border is pretty unique, the text works well, and it's a great representation of the theme.

I'm going to have to admit that this is one of the best pieces of art I've seen in a long time. The colors flow seamlessly and are soft and smooth. I'm not too fond of the moon thing on the bottom, but the overall feel of this piece makes up for it. I especially love the flame-like brushing at the top. Truly a marvelous piece.
Verdict:
Best Overall Composition: Shaky Alliance by Sigma_ and ~Falcon~
Most Unique Artistic Style: The Lonely Samurai by ~Falcon~ and Robert
Best Display Of The Weekly Theme: Teamwork by Wisp and Hakken
Two points for The Underdog Alliance, one point for One Against All

I'm not a extremely talented artist, but I figured it couldn't hurt to try.

And if a title is necessary: Balance
