Games Fan Art Contest

Postby Nicholas » Fri Mar 05, 2010 5:01 pm

Ok, the title says it all. All you have to do is draw your favorite character from any game. Please post here any screenshot or link to the game where the character resides in. Please, anyone who joins, try and send me a private message confirming that you entered. Voting will be a poll. I am trying to make this contest as professinal as possible so please don't vote for your drawing, but for the best drawing. It is also important to think before you vote, a pixel art can be not as good as another, but the effort is bigger.The contest has officially started on the 5th March and will end on the 19th April, on which day voting will start. Put your finished entries here.

Rules(Originally made by Namo): Original Artwork (as in, YOU created it, not someone else!)
Scans or Photos of your favorite real artwork (Like the Statue of David or the Mona Lisa.)
Your favorite artwork from the internet, provided you link to the original author.

Note that the Art Gallery is rated PG-13. This means that there may be some violent content, some bad language, and SLIGHT nudity or sexuality.

The link to the rules doesn't work. It should be without the sid (session id) cause that's personal to yours. However, even without is appears to link to a topic that doesn't exist :)
Perhaps paste the rules in here?

Okay thats good to see now that my coursework deadline is out the way I have some free time. Will get to it soon.

By the way who will be judging this and how will it work?

EDIT: Oh right I just read it properly lol I see but there is obviously going to be some bias in terms of voting on the polls. Some people might vote for there own artwork.

Also im not sure if this is the case but if the art gallery is restricted to a few individuals then theres not always going to be alot of votes.

I think to remedy this when all the votes are casted I suppose we could post them again on the general fun and frolics page.

Been drawing in my lunch break :) My game of choice is Doom, a classic which I still enjoy playing.
For my games I usually do pixel graphics so thought I would have a go at a pixeling some Doom characters: The "Doom guy", a Cocademon and ofcourse an Imp!
I think pixel graphics should be nice and jaggy low res, so I doubled the size of the final picture.

update
I did some last minute work on the doom guy character.
To show how I got to the end result I'm posting the pics of each phase.

Image Image Image

I always start out with black and white, left mouse button for black, right button for white. It's very easy for sketching and wiping out mistakes (which I make a lot).
Then I roughly determine colours to see what will look right.
Last step is to add shading and anti-aliasing. At this stage I rub out black "inner" lines and replace them by shading. I only use black lines where there is a distinct separation between parts of the image, like the head in the doom guy.
As you can see, I changed the Imp's pose at the last minute cause I couldn't get it right :scratch: Initially I wanted it to walk forward.

I'm quite pleased with the result, but may do a background if I find the time :)
Consider this my entry for now.
