This contest was originally inspired by my Munny Art thread. I basically spent the weekend painting up a blank Munny. It was like a seriously fun way of gettin away from Flash animation and I thought, how could i make this a community project. SO, i did some research and found that there were mini versions of Munny's available that were not as expensive. So i went out and bought 20 of them. The project originally asked for 15 well known artists to volunteer to take one of the 15 blank figurines and begin customizing them.
The remaining 5 blanks would be given to the most promising concepts.
In the end, the best 3 finished figurines of the whole competition would get 100 bucks and some NG merch to boot. The top figurine will also recieve a secret prize by me omg.
The 15 artists that were lent 15 Blanks to paint on with the condition that they are to be sent back and ultimately belong to the ng office.
If you bought your own or won the concept phase of the project, obviously you're free to keep them or donate em to live with the rest of the 15 in the ng office if you want. <3
So heres how the competition runs:
Purchase your own figurine for $5.99 you can do so by purchasing a WZL, blank. >> here
Theres many advantages to this. You wont need to compete for a blank and you can start way before anyone else depending on how soon you order one.
If you dont feel like putting up $5.99, you can post your concept of what you would do with your Blank, to do that, simply right click on the image below, save as and then draw it up in photoshop/flash/ whatever.. keeping in mind if your design is chosen you do ultimately have to reproduce it on the actual figurine, so dont go over the top and do something that you wont be able to reproduce by hand! Submit your concept by Nov 10 to be considered for a free be.
Post, anything related to the competition here, concepts, wip, whatever.
The final deadline for your fully painted Blank is November 28th
In regards to painting these, from my own experience, acrylic paint works best. You could do it permanent markers however the colors do come out washed out. This is desireable in some instances. I heard you can use crayons as well. I have no knowledge how good that looks.
You could theoretically 'add' parts to it with clay or props. You are allowe, but you are on your own in that department. I'm no sculptor and i dont know if you would run into problems.
Tips & advice are welcome
DO'S & DONTS:
-Do feel free to use props if you see fit.
-Do feel free to use color or leave it black and white.
-DONT purchase any other figurine other than the one provided in the link above, the whole point of the competition is that everyone is starting from the same mold. This one is inexpensive and a nice compact size for the project.
