January 2018 Challenge of the Month

‘Color of Loss’

DEADLINE:

January 23rd 2018

THEME:

Color in the provided linework (DOWNLOAD HERE) and submit your entry! You may color in digitally or (print the art) traditionally, and you may use any medium (paint, watercolor, marker, pencil, etc) – but the original lineworks boundaries must be preserved and respected. You may add to the linework or detail within reason, without disrupting or changing the original line art or geometry. You may interpret empty space as you see fit (the sky as dark swirling clouds or a burning horizon, or filled with falling fireball from the sky) but again – don’t change the original line work and structure.

Submissions will be judged on the following:

1 – Technical execution and quality of the colored-in entry

2 – Creativity and originality of the mediums, lighting and colors used

3 – Efficacy with which emotion has been portrayed/amplified using your colors
