The Unloved Ones - A feature

Tue Jul 29, 2014, 4:15 AM
I noticed I don't make features so often lately. This time I'll show you the works of some 'not popular' artists on dA: artists who have not more than 100k views and deserve more love. 
Hope you'll enjoy the journey. :)

FAQ


Q: Is minimal color accepted?
A: Minimal color is not accepted.
The entry should be in colors, this means it can't be in black and white in any part.
I think the best way to consider a work in color is to check the thumbnail and see if the colors appear in the image preview. 
Even if the shade of grey is a bit colored, it's not considered in colors.

I'm linking you some samples of black and white, NOT allowed art, or black and white art with small part in colors (these are deviation from dA not related to this contest):
Woodman by huseyinozkan Girl. Sketch by sashajoe Smoke. Sketchbook by sashajoe Why won't you fight back by shilin H I D D E N by tincek-marincek Xena / Gabriel by Entrepreneurial

And here are some samples of not saturated art or 'lines only' that would be accepted:
instinct by len-yan Space girl by sashajoe Tidewater by Wildweasel339 pigeons by monikapalosz 
haunted lake by ramsesmelendeze Red Street by Hideyoshi 

Q: Are 'unnatural' color schemes accepted?
A: Yes. They are accepted! Sample below.
some people are so far gone by Kichaa

Q: Does the style matter? I know the style of each individual artist varies greatly, but should the entries try to reflect your artistic style in at least some way? Should the style be at least somewhat realistic? 
A: Not at all, the entry should be in YOUR style. If you trace to get a semi-realism still we will notice. :) 

Q: Will an entry that looks too 'cartoony' or 'scratchy' be something that is not what you are looking for?
A: Cartoon style is okay. It can be 'scratchy' too but it must be a finished illustration, not a sketch. Remember we will judge on the base of 'Accuracy' too. :) (Smile)

Q: For traditional art drawings, the scan or picture must be uploaded so that the file is 2020x2906 resolution?
A: Yes, different medium same rules.
You can scan traditional art at whatever resolution then you can change the size in Photoshop or other software and crop the drawing. 
You can either post a photo of a traditional drawing as long as it looks finished and with proper shading.

Q: Will a larger resolution be disqualified? 
A: The larger resolutions won't be disqualified as long as the proportions are the same.

Q: I saw you approved an entry with snow. Is it considered Out of Character, since it doesn't appear in the story?
A: Not at all. Atmospheric agents can happen. It doesn't affect the story setting. 

Q: So where does the story take place? 
A:  In Germany, Europe, near Stuttgart.

I also tested the quality of some products. T-shirts' quality is really good. The colors of the Iphone cases are really bright but personally I'd go for a skin instead, because the material is too tough for my taste.
Other people checked the pillows and they are amazing!

You are awesome! You deserve the best gifts and the best in life!


My Christmas was awesome, even if I've eaten too much chocolate and played Diablo III and AC3 for too many hours with my new PS3. I'm a little uninspired so I didn't draw anything for Christmas. T_T Hope you will forgive me!

I also received many awesome gifts and many drawings from people on dA!!

With this screenshot:
Congratsss!!


This time I'm offering an artwork as prize of the value of 90$,
a colored drawing with linest waist up with fast decorative background in colors, fanart or OCS
like this one:
Demons are real by ElephantWendigo

I will accept NOTES :note: ONLY, not messages on my main page or on this journal.
Photos of the screen won't be accepted, I will accept screenshots only.

SAMPLE
Correct stamp: 
Cattura1 by ElephantWendigo

NOT correct stamp: 
Cattura2 by ElephantWendigo


The first note that will reach me will win (if it followed the rules)...

A kiriban works this way...
When I reach this number of PAGEVIEWS (1,000,000) on my MAIN PAGE, you should take a screenshot (STAMP + PASTE in PAINT or PHOTOSHOP) of my page and send it to me.

I know there's the same number on my TAGLINE (kiriban @ 1,000,000) but it won't work as a kiriban. You MUST take the pageviews!

You can upload the file as a deviation or in your Sta.sh or upload it on Photobucket or Imageshack and send me the link.
