The Bungie Art Contest

Summary:
This is the Bungie Art Contest, where people from all around the forums can come and show off their art while competing against others as being the best artist in town. This is going to be high level art and very demanding. All pictures are accepted, but those of you who are used to drawing pictures with the pencil tool in MSPaint might get overwhelmed by the high standards we hope our artists will set. Please do your best!

Rules
* All pictures must be Bungie related.
* No profane content
* You must draw your entry yourself. You can’t steal or copy anyone else’s work.
* Only one entry per person.
* Pictures can't be in folders, or .exe, or anything that could give us viruses.
* You do not have to be from the United States to enter. You can live in other countries if you are planning on entering.

Submitting Your Art

* All art must be sent by 1/7/06
* Send art to [email]SeventhColumnArt@gmail.com[/email] so that it can be judged.
* Include your bungie.net account and a title for your work.
* As said before, all art has to be in a standard picture format or else it won’t be looked at. (No .exe files or folders)

Prizes
The fine people over at Bungie Fans Online have agreed to sponsor this event. This means that the winner of this event will recieve some bungie stuff from The Bungie Store! The prizes will probably be somewhere around the prices of the shirts over there. Once you win, send me a PM so that I can direct you in the right direction for receiving your prize.

Prizes will not be shipped directly to you from the Bungie Store. It will have to go through the people from BFO first.

Judging

Butane123, ODST1125, and GodsProphet have volunteered to be judges for this event. They will check all the emails sent on 1/7/06, and will make a decision on the three pieces they like best.



Alright, go ahead and submit your art!

[Edit]How could I forget to thank the people in #moap for helping me shape this idea. Especially Butane, GP and ODST! Also, huge thanks to snowmanaxt from BFO! Thanks![/edit]

If it fits within the rules, and you think it is good enough to be picked as one of the best, then sure you can submit it.

I suggest scanning it in and using photoshop to shape it up. There was a tutorial made by Gabe from Penny-Arcade on how he makes his strips. I'm going to try and find it and post it here.

i have a small problem....
I happened to be working on a simple wallpaper, as i sometimes do. Than i was browsing the forums here, and read about this contest. Awesome. But now the problem. My little piece of horrible art happened to have two other pictures in it. This one and This. The ship ion the background and the marines in ront, all colored and beefed up. So does this mean it can't enter the contest or do i have to remove it all and come up with something else?

Well i would certainly like to hear the others' opinions on this JAF, but in my honest opinion you would be allowed to submit it because i know just how much work goes into colouring and "beefing up", but we would of course have to take into concideration that you did not draw the inital sketches when we are judging.

Well oke. I did draw everything else, but i just loved those sketches so much that they HAD to be included :P

Excalibur gives us too much credit haha. I would say to just do your best and dont worry about anything shady from us judges. We are honest people who will treat every one equal. I'm saying this now so every one will know how us judges are. Best of lucks to everyone.

EDIT: oh, and lellow, this thread is stickied. Time for some moap harassment :B

Everything will be gone long before me. When the first living thing was born, I was here, waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job is finished. I'll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave.

Hmm...I might try this out.

Yeah, sure. I mean I'm not a judge - it'll be up to them on what they rank it, but just keep in mind that they won't give you as good of a mark on originality or something like that. But wallpapers are great, and usually come out very impressive.

I plan to draw something that will include images that I use as a reference, but it will all be drawn by myself.

I say you can use existing images as a part of a bigger picture, there is nothing wrong with that. Just don't make the complete image out of another's work, make sure it has something that you have done in it. Backgrounds are a perfect example of this, which I think making a background is a great idea.

Don't worry. That's not going to happen.

Oh and please guys, don't be stupid in here. I'd hate for this thing to be un-pinned because of a few silly people and their posts.
