How it works:
The day after each 3rd Thursday competition we will announce a NEW illustration prompt for the following month. Anyone may enter - you don’t need permission - just start creating. We will accept submissions up to 12:00 noon EST (That’s 9:00AM for California) on the 3rd Thursday of the month. At 11:00PM EST we will critique 5 of the best submissions on that same 3rd Thursday in our online GoToMeeting classroom. It is free for anyone to join in and watch us critique each image according to design/composition standards and appropriate storytelling principles and intended category. We will provide the joining information at a later date so check back on our Facebook page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/schoolofvisualstorytelling
Out of the 5 entries we pick for critique we will award 3 of them with two free classes of their choice. Once someone has won they will not be eligible to have their work critiqued or win the free classes for one year - giving more artists the chance to win.
Our goal for this competition is to give you real world assignments that will help you add relevant artwork to your portfolio that will hopefully help you land assignment work from publishers. You will be able to pick up many tips and tricks by attending our monthly critique sessions online for free. Good luck and we’ll look forward to seeing your creations in September!
Here are last Month's winners:
I thought there were 8 winners?
@Chip-Valecek There are 3 main winners, and 8 finalists.
Here is my entry. Thanks for all the help!!
Here is my entry!
Just submitted mine :)
@Jiří-Kůs Woah, cool!
@Aaron We need to email these in for entry correct? Or can we just post them here?
@natiwata You need to email to enter, but you can also post here to share ahead of time.
Just submitted mine! Decided, on the advice of my peers, to go with the fox.
I decided to go with this one, because it makes me laugh...
@Naters-Calderone I have to admit I did not like your lineart, but seeing it colored i prefer this to the street monster. Just that centered composition hurts it a bit I guess.
@Jiří-Kůs thanks for the honesty. i totally agree. unfortunately all of the other sketches i did with more dynamic perspectives felt too forced.
there are a lot of funny and nice work here, a bit disappointed that i could not participate this month, because off my new job as a concept artist for amusement parks, festivals and so on, i'll try to catch up next month!! good luck to all, realy great work out now!! :)
So I quickly did this piece for 3 Thursday.
I think i'm calling this one done :)
The 52 Re-issue Spatula Guitar! Awesome - this cracks me up!
Here is my submission... Oh Poor Stanley, don't open the door.
