Most of my submission hee are usually done for different contests on online forums or similar. I usually lack a certain amount of creativity to look for inspiration on my own. Those contests with different rules usually give a frame for weird ideas to appear. The nice thing with them, is that they are usually not aimed "for the Art" (I wouldn't stand a chance if it aimed to make the prettiest piece of art with the best composition or lighting) and I don't feel "ashamed" to share my low-def poorly-composed paint drawings or similar.
The other nice thing is that, it sometimes lead me "to the award". I haven't been very active here the last year, but before that, I was awarded by 2 of those. I wanted to share these little successes here ^^:
- Canard PC Crossover Contest:
Contest organized by the french videogame magazine "Canard PC" about crossing over 2 videogames for an hopefuly fun result. Result published in the issue n°307
as well as in the special issue n°19
- The Item Shop's Super Geek Night fanart contest
The item shop is a "geek store" in munich who organize a big party once a year calld the "Super geek night". As part of it they organized a fanart contest about the "super geek knight", the mascott of the party. Here again I was delighted to learn they appreciate my "art" (feels weird to call it art)
Hopefuly those are just the firsts but won't be the lasts
