HALLOWEEN 2010 ART CONTEST Discussion Thread

In this thread, feel free to

- Discuss ideas.
- Post works in progress,
- Critique, praise or crap all over WIPs and submissions,
- General banter
- Post your final art, but note we are using the ART PORTAL to review submissions.

Please post your finished work to the Art Portal and tag it with "Halloween2010" and "Halloween". This worked great for Madness Day - note that we will be doing a tag search in the Art Portal to review the final entries.

The theme is anything and everything Halloween / Horror / Scary. You should post your art any time between now and October 31st. Submissions have the potential to become site skins if they are early enough.

To have the potential to become a poster, your original art should be in a 2:3 aspect ratio (poster is 12x18" or 24x36" in extreme scenarios) and 300dpi, although you should probably submit a smaller version to NG.

PRIZES

1st Place: $100
2nd Place: $40
3rd Place: $30


Nightmare Cops, the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

Why don't you just call this thread the Halloween 2010 Art Contest, so not the [talk] in front of it, there's no [art] thread anyway.

Just a suggestion :3

Ive been pondering about my halloween piece for quite some time now, it might include dragons, trees, Pico, skulls, spiders, probably a tank and the Pumpkin Tower. But of course it might be completly diffrent.

I'll probably be able to whip something up in time - got to finish a few other things first. It actually took me a few goes between the reply screen and the OP to figure out what day Halloween was actually on - I had no idea.

WIP of mine so far; what do you goise think? It's going to be a horror movie poster. I'm going to call it "The Boogle Man's Bus Stop" or something along those lines, along with some cheesy catch cry.

I've made some drawings for the halloween day, but I think I will make a halloween/clock monster called Jack-o'-clock

This one is in progress (there will be a army of goblins all around the Pumpkin monster), and I've already made others ones in my Art profile. Tell me what do you think about

Excuse my English, I'm from France

Or embrace them. You know, like Tom did.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

That time already huh? Jeez, where has this year gone..

I've wanted to participate in these things for a long time.

There's a long, half joking half pretentious (alright alright, 1/10 jokey, 9/10 pretentious), explanation of this piece in my art section.

I feel this piece is quite subjective. A play on the memory of your first nightmare (more pretentious shit). You realise the addition of the two red dots change the feel of the work. A once innocent image has become something eeire, something that now feels threatening (holy shit, I'm on fire with this pretentious shit tonight! Someone get me a column in the Daily Telegraph!).

Anyway, I had a blast making this, and I feel that it turn out well. Less is more! Let the mind fill in the gaps! (Gaps left by absence of skill! HAHA.. I'm so lonely)
