Wishes and Nightmares Contest TERMINATED

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 24, 2012, 4:14 AM


EDIT 2: Since I had some stuff to do since the 2nd deadline had been and there haven't been anymore entries I'm finally terminating this. I'm pretty sad this had to happen but I guess next time I will have to promote my contests a little more. The only two participants will receive a little expense allowance. Here are their entries:

Eternal Life for Eternal Love? by e-no91Into the Real World by DecepticonFlamewar

Thanks to you two for participating :hug:

EDIT: Due to the Holidays I have decided that I will give you another 2 weeks to send in your entries. The official deadline was last night at midnight. Since there are only 2 entries so far and since I had the impression that a couple of you seemed to be interested in participating I will extend the deadline.

The new Deadline will be on the 15th of January 2013 0:00 GMT+1:00.

If I don't have at least 5 entries until the new deadline I will terminate the Contest and all participants will receive some sort of expense allowance!


Hello fellow deviants, watchers and friends :)

It's been a while since I last offered a contest and actually I never really finished my first as I had to give up on it due to a sudden change in my real life.

But whatever... :D

I finally decided to set up a NEW contest (instead of reviving the last). :eager: Since I don't have the funds to offer god knows what as a prize it would be great if someone could donate something (whatever it is) - Please scroll down to read more!

Over the past week or two I had a poll asking for desired mediums and the Fractal Medium with 31 votes is far the highest, followed by Drawing&Painting with 3 votes :lol:

Because of some suggestions in the poll comments I decided to offer the option for a second Medium.

So here is a short list of infos:

:bulletred:Topic: Wishes and Nightmares (Please read the details at the end of this article!)
:bulletred:Allowed Mediums: Raw Fractal, Fractal Manipulation, Digital/Traditional Drawing&Painting, Mixed Media (as in Mixing Fractal Art with Drawing&Painting)
:bulletred:Deadline: 31st of December 2012 at 11:59 PM GMT+1:00 (Convert your time here: www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-… ) - The process of judging may take a little longer due to holidays!
:bulletred:Who may participate: Whoever wants - no need to sign up or anything :D
:bulletred:How to participate:  Just send a NOTE with your entry before the Deadline! Be aware: comments with links to entries won'T be accepted. Notes only! :iconisayplz:
:bulletred:Entries: 1 Entry per person only!!!

:eager:Are there any prizes?:eager:

Of course otherwise it wouldn'T be a contest, would it? :giggle:
As for prizes I currently only have what is offered down there so if there is anyone willing to donate something whatever it is is welcome to comment or note me!!!

Judging :paranoid:
Whoever wants to be a Judge can comment or note me - but they may not participate!

Judges: :iconleichenengel:

Judgement Creteria:
:bulletyellow: Concept&Idea
:bulletyellow: Choice of Colors&Technique
:bulletyellow: Accuracy (Drawing&Painting) - the more your entry looks like a doodle the lower your chances of winning :giggle:
:bulletyellow:  "Compliance" (Means your entry follows every rule given in this article)
:bulletyellow: Quality&Resolution (Fractal Art)

So what about that "Wishes and Nightmares" Topic?

Yeah. I somewhat wanted something that isn't TOO seasonal and of all the things I had in mind this one was the most suitable for the Fractal as well as the Drawing&Painting Medium.

Here's the deal :D

I want you to create a picture that includes BOTH a heartfelt wish and a true nightmare. It can be fictional but it also can be personal. Don't just pick random wishes and nightmares as both have to be related to each other in some ways without actually being related at all:

Examples:
:bulletred:Wish is eternal Love - Nightmare is eternal Hate: This would be too easy and too obvious :D:bulletred:
:bulletgreen:Wish is to win the lottery - Nightmare is loosing friends: In this case both things aren't obviously related but by reading between the lines and imagining the situations you can find a relation anyways :XD::bulletgreen:

So you see - red example bad green examples good :D

There is another thing that is an ABSOLUTE MUST include!!!
Please put your chosen Wish and your chosen Nightmare into the Artist's Comment - especially for abstract pieces that would be a great judging help.

Okay :) Please don't forget to watch my journal to stay up to date!!! If you don't and miss any changes or addition it isn'T my fault =P
If something is unclear please feel free to comment and ask :#1:

READY?

GET SET...

GO!!!

Have fun :D

Would have done so anyways ^^

I for some reason have the impression that almost nobody will participate. Sure a bunch of people faved this article and a few even commented having questions but idk...I experienced that with earlier projects of mine that almost noone was interested...also experience that with a group of mine that focuses on Art creation. I've gor almost 100 Members including myself and there are only 2-3 people who regularly participate in the Challenges T_T

Can we create a piece that shows how a wish turned into a nightmare? Or is it off-topic?
Reply
:iconleichenengel:
Leichenengel Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a bit off-topic yes. it has to be a clear border but then again they have to be connected somehow even though not obviously visible.

:icon20tourniquet02:
20Tourniquet02 Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
In that case, can we create a piece that can be both a wish and a nightmare at the same time? I mean, showing the exact same thing from two different angles?
Reply
:iconleichenengel:
Leichenengel Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well depends on how it is done - remember that the wish and the nightmare must be connected to each other but the more obvious it is the less chances of winning you have - give it a try but don'T expect too much ^^

20Tourniquet02 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
So, the connection between the wish and the nightmare doesn't have to be too obvious?
Reply
:iconleichenengel:
Leichenengel Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well actually it shouldn't be too obvious

"Wish is to win the lottery - Nightmare is loosing friends: In this case both things aren't obviously related but by reading between the lines and imagining the situations you can find a relation anyways"

I gave that example in the article. On the first gflance winning the lottery and losing friends hasn't got anthing to do with another but if you look at it a second time and consider all disadvantages of winning the lottery you eventually stumbler upon the connection

That means that whatever you chose has to be a wish and a nightmare (of you) but the relation between them doesn't have to be something you are actually afraid of. So for example you wish could be to win the lottery and the nightmare is to lose a friend even though losing the freind isn't realted to the lottery for you - but it CAN be related to winning the lottery

I hope that explains it somehow. It's just like wishing for love and not wanting to be hated is too obvious....

Thank you very much for explaining!:)
Now, one last question!
Do the wish and the nightmare have to be in two different pannels in the same deviation, or be somehow mixed?
Reply
:iconleichenengel:
Leichenengel Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
well that is up to you main thing is your picture includes both - in what way you differ both or if you differ both is up to you ^^

About the digital painting and drawing medium, is it needed to have something "fractal" on the piece or not?

No - it's either or or both mixed if wanted ^^

etwas ist für mich wirklich unklar und zwar, was bei Who may participate: gemeint ist... das was dahinter steht kapier ich nämlich nicht ganz...
und noch was: soll das wie eine Gegenüberstellung der beiden (also Wishes and Nightmares) sein?
Reply
:iconleichenengel:
Leichenengel Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
"Who may participate" = Wer darf teilnehmen - ganz klare übersetzung :D Sprich der punkt sagt lediglich aus wer teilnehmen darf weil bei manchen Contests da ja einschränkungen gelten ^^

Und die Gegenüberstellung soll in einer Art und Weise stattfinden die einerseits die Gegensätzlichkeit vonb Wunsch und Alptraum betont aber andererseits thematisch so gewählt wird dass beide nicht unbedingt offensichtlich miteinander zu tun haben.

In meinem "guten" Beispiel habe ich ja als Wunsch den Lottogewinn gewähöt und als Alptraum den verlist von Freunden. Diese haben ja so gesehen erstmal nicht miteinander zu tun - wenn man aber den Lottogewinn weiterstrickt und die negativen Seiten eines solchen berücksichtigt dann kommt man ganz schnell darauf wie beides miteinander in Zusammenhang stehen könnte.

Wie du deinen Wunsch und deinen Alptraum letztendlich visuell aufgreifst und darstellst bleibt dir überlassen - deswegen sollen ja auch beide im Artist's Comment Erwähnung finden damit es die Preisrichter später leichter haben zu beurteilen ob die gewählte darstellung passend und gut ist oder eben nicht ^^
