Sun Mar 9, 2014, 2:44 PM by SimplySilent:iconsimplysilent:


Contest Closed!


The March Colors contest is now closed, and admins will be submitting their votes. Due to the unexpectedly large number of entries, there will be runner-ups and honorable mention prizes in addition to the semi-finalists and finalists. :eager:

The results will be out as soon as we have enough admin votes!

Judging


The admins and I will vote to pick five semi-finalists from all of the submitted contest entries. Then all of the members of this group will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite one, and you will be able to pick the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. :la:

  • Creativity and originality (25%)

Can it be multi-colored, but centered on one color scheme?
Reply
:iconsimplysilent:
SimplySilent Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014
You can certainly use more than one color, but the work overall should focus on one color, either in interpretation, execution, etc. I always try to have a lot of freedom with these contests, so as long as you can explain how it centers on one color, you'll be fine. :aww:

Sooo you have to pick one colour, does it mean you can still use other colours too as long as there is one central colour or should it be more like one colour and it's different shades? 
I have two art pieces coming up for this but now I started thinking it'd look a bit dumb in one of them to use just absolutely one colour..

As long as you can explain how your artwork fits the theme, you'll be fine. I try to allow as much freedom as possible with these contests, so feel free to interpret the theme as broadly as you'd like. :aww:

It's all about how you interpret these words:
Pick one color and create an artwork that centers around that color.

I think the keyword here is "centers" ..

So, what I am going to say is that you will have a much better chance of placing for a prize if the entire (or almost entire) piece was one color (of course as you mentioned using different shades of a color will make for a better piece usually) But I don't want to influence your piece in a negative way so I shall say no more :P

I just submited my entry but I'm very afraid about the time. There's still 3 weeks for people to submit their arts and I think my art will have a bad view rate cause when the new arts comes, my art will be drowned to the last page of the contest folder... I don't want my art to be forgotten cause of it D:

But I'll still submit one more entry later (possibly).

Nope. The admins go through all the artwork, looks at what catches their eye, and they have to go through the entire folder. Then they're free to nominate 3 drawings.
