ALL ENTRIES ARE NOW DUE AND SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!!! We are no longer accepting submissions unless you have my permission. For those who've missed the contest, do not fret! We will begin a new contest soon! At this moment we will have the judges begin the judging process!

Thank you for everyone contributing to this group!! There are tons of beautiful submissions and it's gonna be tough to choose the winners! I can't wait to see how the second contest will go :D

EDIT: 6-23-15 ALL SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY 12:01 a.m. CT (central standard time) June 25th. As soon as the 24th is up in my time zone I will close the contest and no further submissions will be accepted unless you were posting while I was closing the contest. Remember, we will have a second contest. So if you miss this one, try your luck with the next one!! :D

EDIT 6-9-15: We've decided to make one final extension. The new due date for all submissions will be JUNE 24th! You must submit your drawing to our contest folder or it will not be valid. If you are having trouble submitting, contact me, Vyndicare, and I will help you. This is the last extension. If you miss this contest, do not fret!!! We are hosting a second contest for those who miss this one or just want to try their luck with the second one! Please do not ask for anymore extensions because we CANNOT extend the deadline anymore!

EDIT 5-5-15: Due to numerous requests and lack of entries, we've decided to postpone the deadline until June 17th. This gives you over a month to finish your submission(s). I've also rephrased the theme so that it would offer less misunderstandings.


Finally we can now begin the contest for Rewritten: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland! For those of you who were not invited and missed the late artist recruitment well now is your chance to have your winning artwork to be featured in the artbook! :D


Theme: Wonderland Redesigned


"If you could change the way Wonderland looks, what would it be and how would everyone look?" Be as creative as you want! This could be anything like steampunk, horror, food, Victorian, western, anything! We want originality and cleverness. Our aim is to have a diverse portrayal of Wonderland so that we don't have a lot of the same kinds of drawings. ^^

EDIT: -Characters may be OCs, but you need to represent them in what you consider an Alice in Wonderland scenery and(or) clothing.

Bullet; Red Bullet; Red Deadline: June 24th Bullet; Red Bullet; Red 


Rules and Guidelines


Bullet; Red Format: US Letter (8.5'' x 11''), 300 dpi, CMYK; include a bleed margin of 3 mm on all sides. Template here: sta.sh/0a15s3c25sq
How to use the template: Please fill all the area of template. Just keep the important parts of your drawing inside the text safe area (inside the blue line) to prevent it being trimmed off or being unseen because of the gutter, either on the left or right side. (The gutter position isn't exactly always on the left side. It can be on the right, depending on the final format.)
Note NilaNandita if you're still confused about the format. We also prefer for the submission to be in Portrait orientation for formatting purposes.
The submitted artwork must have at least one character and a moderate amount of background to accompany the character. Gradient BGs are only acceptable if the rest of the artwork has enough details to make up for it.
All participants are allowed to submit a maximum of two entries. However, contestants can only win with one artwork. One participant will not have two pieces of artwork featured in the artbook.

Notice: You may upload a smaller version of your drawing to DA for us to judge but you must have the original file size on hand if you are a winner. Otherwise we cannot format your drawing to the book since the file would be too small.

Acceptable:
Bullet; Green  OCs and multiple characters (must depict Alice in Wonderland in some way though)
Bullet; Green  Characters with ears or tails are allowed
Bullet; Green  Detailed/ large background is more than allowed but please keep in mind that there must be at least one character in the artwork
Bullet; Green  Digital OR traditional artwork
Bullet; Green  Artworks with repeated themes

Unacceptable:
Bullet; Red Sexual nudity, intense gore & violence
Bullet; Red Fan art, other artists' designs, crossovers, or tracing is NOT allowed, this is due to copyright reasons
Bullet; Red Sketches or unfinished art works
Bullet; Red Monochrome/black &white pieces (unless it fits the theme and there is at least some color)
Bullet; Red Huge watermarks or text over the image
Bullet; Red Using brushes or stock that does not permit commercial use
Bullet; Red Collaborations (not completely done by you alone)
Bullet; Red An old piece of artwork drawn before this journal was posted

If you are expected to receive a free copy of the book and you can't due to special reasons, we will send you a PDF file of the entire book via email. If at any point you are able to pay for shipping sometime later, you can note me and I will send you a copy.

Judges


What the judges will be looking for..
:iconuchuubranko: "After the first flash of impressions, I study the work in detail and look out for my top 3 interests : Composition, Colours, Overall impact of image. I might either glue my head to the screen or take some distance to savor better your awesome piece. Love However, a potential winner must stand out in one or few aspects. I love colours, and I'd love to see your colours!  :P (Lick) I'm not looking especially at brightness, saturation, or whatsoever but how well your colours fit with the theme/composition and with themselves. Colour really adds to the overall effect so I might be a bit picky. I encourage originality and hard work. (colour-wise too Wink/Razz) Boogie! Heart I hope you'll have fun in this contest! La la la la I've once been told this : Do your best, be you, and surpass yourself! Hug"

:iconnyanfood: "As a judge, I am looking for:
Composition - overall use of the principles of design to assist in the representation of the idea. A good composition should keep the viewer interested and show dynamic flow of elements within the image. It should imply the elements outside of the canvas with the subjects inside the canvas. The colors should make sense with each other. The foreground, middle ground, and background should be clear and a distinct sense of priority will make it strong.

Concept - the idea of the piece. The concept should be compelling, be it complex or simple. A good concept is as relatable as it is original and at the same time intriguing. The audience should be able to interpret a meaning or invoke a feeling without much effort by looking at the piece. This is the creativity part of the piece. Is your intent being conveyed?

Craftsmanship - the image is put together in a neat manner, without glaring stray marks or half-assed areas. The intentions of the artist's marks are clearly conveyed to the audience. This does not necessarily mean cellshading or straight/pure edges. Paintings with rough brushes can have just as much good craftsmanship as a vector image. Craftsmanship is about being orderly with your style of choice.

Proportion and Perspective - Good anatomy and good perspective. Does a certain pose make sense? Are the objects in context with each other? Does the horizon line stay in the same place? Is the figure looking at something accurately without looking past it? Is that how that object really looks?

I will always try to judge within the context of your style. If I can't begin to guess what goals you were trying to achieve simply by looking at the image, chances are you won't score very well. Express yourself in an articulate manner and best of luck!"

:iconzolaida: "As a judge I am looking for a piece that, first of all, fits the theme. I am looking for a piece that holds my attention! That can be done by having interesting composition, colours, storytelling and style. I encourage to give it your all, and most of all, to enjoy what you are creating!"

:iconserafleur: "As a judge, when it comes to determining a quality art I look for a good anatomy and perspective. It's very important to make an art that has a sense of direction and flow within the piece. Next is the use of colors. It's not about having very vibrant or saturated colors but the colors that would fit the concept of your work. Also, originality and creativity is a must! And last, don't forget to have fun! :D (Big Grin)"

:iconvyndicare: "When deciding a winner I first see if your work goes with your theme. Then I get to anatomy, composition, color choice, etc. I'm also looking for more unique styles. Something that will make you turn your head and keep your attention. I really encourage creativity so I want to see something that I wouldn't have even thought of! Make your entry interesting and fun :D"

Unfortunately you can't since the deadline is final. The judges will already be choosing what ones catch their eye and then singling down to what ones deserve what placement.

Hey, I know you guys said you prefer portrait orientation, but is it okay if it's landscape? Because I am halfway done and I really don't want to redo it :/
Reply
:iconvyndicare:
Vyndicare Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hmm.. Can you note me what you have? The reason why we ask for portrait only is because of formatting. If there's a landscaped drawing the binding can cause the drawing to look cutoff. But send me what you have and I'll see if it's okay :)
