Welcome to the Art Skills Competition 2014/2015, or "ASC" for short. It is a contest to gather willing artists from the forums to compete in a friendly test of their skills and reward the best of their work each round.

Rounds will take place each month, the last day of the month will be the final cutoff for any entries. The judging will take place the first week of the following month.
___________________________________________________________________

Competition Guidelines :

1. The entry must be 100% original material.
2. Each round lasts for a month; closing date is at the end of that month.
3. Submissions should be relevant to the current month's theme. (See thread's title)
4. Keep posts resolutions within reason and if you must have a larger resolution, link it to the entry.
5. Entries can be created in any medium, please note that it will be appreciated if hand drawn entries are cropped to contain only the intended work.
6. Winners will be announced by the judge of the competition at the end of each round; the results are final and non-debatable.
7. The winner of a round will have the right to choose the next theme; if this takes too long, the judge will choose one instead.
8. All participants of each round will receive a Merit for their hard work; the winner of each round will receive the Armor Games "Artist Quest"!

@Hectichermit I edited the current theme into the header, but is it extended? And if so, to which date?

@MrDayCee, I am giving it until the end of the weekend, I just was hoping to see more entries

But if the next round is just as dead we might have to do something about the formating. I haven't been on AG much lately but I do check this thread at least once a week. Anyways if theres anyone waiting to submit something you have a few more days. I will be judging this on Monday (March 6th)

For the best still life :P, idk dead nature is like a direct translation from another language but I mostly hear it as still life in art. Anyways you could improve it by adding a window and tweaking the lighting. I think mostly you forgot to imagine a source of light. Some of the colors blend together and could use a bit of contrast.

Assuming you wanted "dead nature" to be still lifes then i get the meaning. But this still life is ok. I just do not see anything that would be very subjective, the contents seem kind of bland, perhaps more flat then expected.

Went with something different the the others. I like the overall idea but if you were going for a volcanic eruption burning the land, it usually comes in molten and black earth or an ash cloud.

Anyways thats it for the round whenever @Laspa submits a new theme it will be judged on April 8th

I'm on board with the theme @Laspa as long as they are decently drawn; meaning not offensive or explicit. Agreed?

Changed the thread header already @Hectichermit !

Its good but I was thinking that both entries had their strengths, I would like to see you color and shade this one but its up to you . I dunno you both did traditional mediums, I am terrible with traditional mediums outside of a doodle.

--------------------------------------
I would like to challenge the artists next round, do a 1 hour speed drawing/painting, just to see what you are capable of. You do not have to submit the first drawing you do but try and challenge yourself to do something in less then an hour

Next Round will end May 13th
