*looks up Andy Warhol* That sounds like it could. It's not exactly the classical that everyone else has been doing, but I will allow this! (I was not specific with my "classical" stipulations...) I am curious what you'll do with some of his works. *is excited!* Good luck!!!!
Does warhol count as Classic? His work is amazing.

How did you even come up with this!? It's an epic idea. I'm going to give it a shot
Redeemed (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 09/11/09 | Reply
I'm so glad you are considering this challenge! Yes, pastels are acceptable. Any medium, other than Photoshop, is perfectly fine. (Please note that I have updated the guidelines to the contest. If you have any good reason why you can't use another medium other than PS (e.g. your scanner is broken), then I can make room for an exception in your case.
As for your second topic (cropping), I am not so concerned that you get the backgrounds just so. I know that a lot of impressionistic art is difficult to reproduce, let alone to "anime it." The purpose of this challenge is for people to get the essence of classical works. This challenge is also 3 months long, so you have plenty of time to play around with ideas. I am looking for effort, not perfection. Try to capture the artist's essence in your work while adding a bit of "anime" flair to it. So to answer your question, let's not crop. If you note which classical piece you referenced, then I will have no problem seeing how the two (yours and it) relate.
I hope that answers your questions. Please let me know if you have difficulty with either! Thanks again for your participation!!!!

hmmm, interesting idea! nice to know I;m not the only one making people research and put pencil (or other medium) to paper! (not to knock digital of course) lol!
might try this one out, just making sure any medium is accepted, we could use pastels as well, correct?
oh, and one more thing, many painting have background that are difficult if not clumsy to reproduce in a remotely anime style - a lot of impressionist art is an example - is there any way we can take a famous painting and crop it in a bit as long as we still get the main subject across and it's still recognizable?

Hmmm... Thank you for coming to me about this. I think it is a wonderful piece. However, so I don't offend anyone else, would it be possible to cover it up just a bit? Let's make it PG-13 if possible. However, be free with your art. If you feel you can't get around this issue, then let me know and I may allow it as is.
Thanks and good luck!

Evening Mood. I really like this painting. Would I be able to use it? Probably not right? Unless I fully clothed my character... but on the off chance that I decide "Hey I'll doodle something nude" then... -__-
Otaku Eternal | Posted 08/30/09 | Reply
Oh wow, that's a cool bean challenge. O3O
shoot, I know I like some classic works... just can't remember what they are.
3 months? O3O That's plenty of time to think about what to doodle und paint, ja? Ooh, I should make it bigger than what I normally doodle (always so tiny). >3<
R A W R~ O3O . . .
With Jade entering, and after seeing what's already submitted, there will indeed be some ridiculous competition. Even I'm looking forward to see who's doing what here and there. The best thing about it is that it's all coming from "you". No programs, no digital madness... Nothin' but the Force. Not to mention this challenge puts us all to the test mentally, creatively, and artistically. Astonishing to say the least. -psyched-
I'm a sorry procrastinator too! -highfives- Just ask Twilight. She knows... -snickers- (Sorry, hun. One day~! One day~!!)
AHHH!!! I can't wait to get my art on! xDDD
Is this the most epic challege evar or what? xD I'm so down.
p.s. I noticed that a lot of other challenges offered "Medals" as rewards for winners. I don't know what that's about or how to get it because I haven't thought of anything as genius as this but have you considered it? :O

No way!!! Three months is just fine. Gives sorry procrastinators like me plenty of sweet, conscious heavy time to do this. And believe it or not, I'm actually planning to submit TWO entries. I really like this idea. Good luck judging this when the time comes. We're barely in the first month of the challenge, and already we are seeing talent like the person who drew the samurai warrior! *gulp* And now I see that Jae is entering! This is going to be one hell of a collection of talents. Can't wait to see more entries. Thanks again for the invite! =)

I know how you feel! I've entered a few contests just to be given a "Thanks for participating" award. LOL It stinks, but you know, it's all in good fun and isn't all about winning a cyber award. You don't have to join, but it'd be a blast to see you participate! Ciao!

I might enter but it seems no matter how much effort I put into my work it seems I never do well so I am doubtful of another challenge....
Grand Otaku | Posted 08/26/09 | Reply
wow sounds time consuming but fun ^^
Otaku Eternal | Posted 08/25/09 | Reply
Sounds like a great challenge! I hope I can find some time. Even thinking of what to do is a challenge in itself. XD
This should be fun.

Hoorah! I'm glad you're joining me with this! I hope 3 months isn't too long... Is it too long? Ugh! Hahaha I think you'll do great, Nomad!
That's the spirit! Have fun with it!

Hell yes! I will accept your challenge and partake in this contest! I have had something in mind for a loooong while that might just fit this challenge. Thanks for the motivation TS! Be seeing you. =)

I got a great artist im mind for this one. Gonna try a bit of dali surrealism for this. Should look pretty good if it turns out ok.

Yeah, I know, I know... I'll try but my favorite painter is Salvador Dali, what will I do with this?? lol
That's why it is called a challenge. ;) But no pressure. Have fun with this! I'm just trying to get people to go back to the roots of art... It's merely a walk down memory lane, so to speak.
Interesting but all that sounds hard to me!! -_-'
Then, if I find the time, I'll try, promise!
I have no clue. Just some random dance in my head! *looks around* I can dance in my mind.... @_o LOL
I wanna join..sounds good.
