Christmas-Themed Art Contest

I'm trying to get the concept of contests of the ground, just to see how successful it could be.

Anyway, for those in a Christmas mood, or those who just feel like drawing/painting etc, contribute a Christmas-themed artwork!

I'm not sure yet on who is going to be the judges, but there are to be 3 categories we're gonna judge in.

Colouring, Technique and Originality.

Rules are exactly the same as those of the Art forum and the entire board.

Just remember, they must have some relation to Christmas.

Judges
Fireball
Redlink2
andi
husk1442

Oh, and I forgot something, the closing date for entries is 25th December, Eastern Australian Standard time. So around the 24th for you US peeps.

Re: Christmas-Themed Art Contest

I would enter, but when i do something like on christmas it is either THE WORST THING EVER, or it is brilliant. So i think i will stick to judging, i guarentee i will not be biased, because not many people no who i am anyway, i disapeered for the longest time

Re: Christmas-Themed Art Contest

Ok, we're only gonna need 4 judges, I'm gonna be picking them from the voulenteers. But we also need more people to enter!

I'm gonna enter myself, and you judges don't need to see me as almighty or something, just a participant.

Peefy explained it well, but I can do better. Before we had 3-D graphics, we would use 2-D pictures known as sprites. These are still used, but they aren't nearly as integral right now. The disadvantages with sprites were that you couldn't attain a huge level of detail (though there are some very nice sprites out there, like in Seiken Densetsu 3), and for each time it moved, you would have to essentially draw a new sprite. Now, with 3-D models, we can simply apply a skeleton to the model and use that to move the model, or use motion capture to make the model move.

Hope that answeres your question.
:mad:
Bah!
Just kidding ^_^ Nice way to put it. *throws sthe norwegian language into the wall*
Anyway, I might be with on this (probably with some dull srpite or something, maybe a drawing if I'm lucky, but if so, I have to do it before Friday =\

Edit:

Bah! NO, I wnot enter the competition >_<
