Kick Your Own ss!



Kick your own Ass STAMP by MonicaMarinho

A visual art contest meant to push the Artist to new levels and challenge oneself - above all it is a contest designed around the idea of you the artist, kicking your own ss! :giggle:

So what does this mean exactly?



Kick your own Ass STAMP by MonicaMarinho



The Rules:



1. Entrants must re-do an existing work!  You cannot improve an existing work, it must be done from scratch but with the same concept and idea of the work you have chosen to re-create.  (Plain and simple, don't open up the old work in your graphics program and tweak it, it must be completely re-done! Same idea for traditional works!) :nod:

2. You may include new elements into the new work, or you may choose to use all of the same elements from the existing work - but either way it must be obviously referenced from your existing work so the two can be compared, you want to see how you have improved over time as an artist!

3. Both versions of your work must be uploaded to either your galleries or scraps!

4. Both versions must be done in the same media.

5. The actual "Contest Entry" should show BOTH versions of the work: the old work on the left and the new work on the right, in large enough size so that they can be compared!

6. The entries' description should contain both links to the old work and the new work that are somewhere in your gallery or scraps.  Please also tell us which Category/Group you are entering into (see group descriptions below!) Also a brief critique from the artist would be great, let us know how you think you improved!

7. If you use any sources other than your own, for example stock, brushes, etc., don't forget to provide credit!

8. Entrants may enter as many times and as many works as they like, so long as all the rules above are followed. :D

Entrant Groups/Categories:

2. All Photo-manipulations, Mixed Media, and Miscellaneous images

3. All Traditional images

Groups are broken down as such to provide more room for prizes and fairness across the board, simply state to which group (or medium) you are entering your work into. ;)

Since there were some issues with the system (read my previous comment to know more) I'm still accepting entries (submited in 'normal' categories) by note for the next 12h.

These entries won't appear in the KYO@ category since it already expired, but I'm going to put all the valid entries together in a news article (that will be a huge news article =p) and note each entrant with the link. :)


Now give me a couple of days and don't be so stressed! :D

After that NW is submited, I'll contact the judges and they'll be given a month to score each entry of the group they're judging.

THEN I'll announce the winners, so if you want to get a note when the results are out, just send me a note saying 'Kick @ss results' in the subject. :lol:

Only the first 3 places of each group. :)


Yeah, it will take a little time to get the results but at least it will be fair :D

Hotica Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
Yeah I guess so. I guess listing all the scores somewhere would take a massive amount of room. =)

Yeah I bet its pretty troublesome... I was browsing through the entries and I fell asleep halfway through, theres just so many of them...

I've sent a note and I guess I might as well comment on this right? I just realized that I got the left and right mixed up, but that's okay too right?

Okay, I know I'm just on the deadline, June 28th right?
Well, technically today's the 28th, but I should still be able to submit it now right?
I've killed myself, my program, and my computer to finish this on time, so if you could, could you consider this entry? And if not, please tell me why?

[link]

I couldn't put it into the category and it's really frustrating now knowing why, so it'd mean a lot to me if you could get to it.

Thank you,
Leayana
