Two hours and thirty minutes left and the contest if over, start wrapping the artwork up and get it in before midnight pacific coast time tonight. JULY 18TH. It might take me a week to pick the winners out there has been some amazing entries.
I warn you do not send plagiarism stuff and try to pass it off as your own or I will try to get you banned. If you make money off of your stolen artwork I will contact the artist and they will deal with you. Specially if it's a gaming company and the previous owner is someone I know. I advised all of you not to use game art. When I said I game and I'm an avid fantasy collector I was not lieing. Also I haven't played every game out their like Skyrim (I know shun the none believer) so again do not enter art that looks like you copied it from in-game content are you will be disqualified. If I don't know it some fan might and point it out.
Artist name is ShikharSrivastava is a thief if you haven't heard. Pretty much we keep finding out new places he's stolen art from and calling his own. Most of these we have caught he's taken down. He has so far tried Dryness Tree, Warhammer Online official fanart, Shirley Dawson beautiful painting www.shirleydawson.com/photo_ga…, and at first was claiming to have taken a photo that is nearly 100 years old (he's now edit his speech to put that he did not take the photo, what a shocker.) Artwork as far as I know are stolen that he still has up: a famous painting by Lola Ades or known to some as Lola Ader ( here it is going on ebay cgi.ebay.fr/Tableau-Huile-Bouq… and this is what he put up fav.me/d2q18oo ). Also the snowman from shutterstock is also not his.
So a little bit of my time. A couple of weeks a had a cancer scare, which it turned out to be a benign tumor but still makes you see the world very different. I've had cancer before but it never gets old when you hear you might have it again. Still recovering from the removal of it (some pain) so I've been a little slow in updating my DEV art account. Also something new I've become an awesome moderator of the group so just a little shout out for them. Makes my next collection project of stuff is like 12 ways to die, you know one for each month. Also don't forget to like the official DreamOrchid face book page (www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOr…. With all this said I'm back with a bang; If you don't know why I'm doing the contest check out my previous journal Back with a Bang. Send submissions by note to me and if you want to add to the prizes let me know by note as well . AGAIN deadline is July 18th so it's just around the corner I'm looking forward to picking out some of the winners and holy cow we have a lot of good submissions.
The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I'm excited to see what people can come up with. If it looks like Peter Pan and Tinkerbell that's not being original. All work also must be yours. Yes you can have a collaboration with another artist as long as they're listed too. The deadline will be July 18th. We don't mind less then conservative outfits but please keep nudity down. Entries also have to be new entries on Deviant Art. When you submit your art please link this contest in your description of it and send me a note on it so I can add it to the feature area and fav.
