Badass, butt-kicking, name-taking, blood-spitting, not-down-backing MALE AND FEMALE warriors and fighters.
Dynamic action poses are preferred, but I will accept more mellow images as long as the WARRIOR aspect is portrayed accurately and interestingly.
There are four subcategories, by popular demand each comes with a selection of 7 fitting stock photos to choose from
BUT you are allowed to pick your own reference from my whole gallery.
The "Warriors" folder is newly organized by type of weapon used to help navigation.
Please scroll down to see the categories, example stock photos, contest entries + the full set of rules as well as prizes available.
DEADLINE: December 20th 2013
With 37 people asking for an extension in the poll I decided to add another 10 days.
1. You must use at least ONE of my model stock-photos
in creating your contest entry.
You may use additional stock
2. You may use the example stock-photos
OR hunt for the perfect photo in my gallery
. It's entirely up to you and whatever you choose will not reflect on the judging of the finished entry.
3. You may use any visual medium
: photomanips, traditional and digital drawings or paintings, even sculpting etc is allowed as long as it features my stock in the image or as reference used. FanArt and OCs are allowed
as long as the image meets the contest theme.
4. You may also take any artistic license
in altering the original stock to fit your artistic vision, stock is supposed to be inspiration, not a corsett. Any genre is welcome, fantasy, sci-fi, modern, etc.
5. The contest entry must be NEW
and submitted to deviantart after October 7th 2013.
6. You may enter each of the four categories
once. If your entry features a duell between a mage and a swordsman, for example, you can pick the category you want to present it in.
7. For each category there will be a winner and a runner-up
, provided there are more than 5 entries per category.
- CREATE. CREDIT. NOTIFY.
9. I will answer any questions in comments and notes and update this journal and the set of rules if necessary.
10. Please write in the image description that it's for the contest and wich category you're submitting to.
On a personal note:
Finally I can get this contest up and running! I've been talking about it for ages now... Thanks for being patient with me and I hope you'll have fun. Please let me know if anything's unclear or confusing, I'll try my best to explain and fix the description asap. I'll be on and checking my messages every day (not that that's any difference to my usual online habits).
Please be nice to my warrior boys and girls and I am entirely grateful if you could promote this contest in any way you can!
