DRAWING CONTEST

Everyone can enter! There will be five winners, who will each receive TWO prizes. Therefore, your chances are of winning are better in this contest than in others that only have one winner. This contest is also specially designed so that beginners have a good chance of winning. Here are the specifics:

THE RULES

Post a drawing on my Facebook Fan Page: www.facebook.com/LEARN.TO.DRAW…

Your drawing will be of an original character that you design. It can be in a manga style, a cartoons style, fantasy, animal, or whatever suits you. Now, draw the expression and the body language so that we – as the viewers – can tell what the character is thinking or feeling!  Try to be as specific as possible. You can use props and settings, but it’s not necessary. Here are a few examples:

-I’m so jealous
-That looks delicious
-I’ll protect you!
-Would I lie to you?
-That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen…!
-I think I’m in love!  
-Etc.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

-Yes, it can be in black and white
-Yes, it can be in color
-Yes, it can be a sketch
-No, you cannot enter more than once
-No, I do not take bribes (unless it’s for a lot of money)

DEADLINE

The last day to enter and post your stuff is Sunday, August 18th. I’ll announce the winners one week later, on Sunday, August 25th.

HOW WILL IT BE JUDGED?

You don’t have to be the best artist in the world in order to win. Even a beginner can win, if they have enough imagination.

-WINNER: Best Expression
-WINNER: Best Body Language
-WINNER: Best Character Design
-WINNER: Best Overall Concept
-WINNER: Best Style

Plus, there will be three Honorable Mentions.

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES? (TELL ME, TELL ME…!!)

Each winner gets TWO prizes: A signed copy of one of my How-To-Draw books, inscribed to you as a winner in the contest & an original piece of signed art, which was published in one of my books (if the published art is not currently available, I’ll create original, signed sketches instead).

HOW WILL I GET MY PRIZES? (ME WANT PRIZES…!!)

The winners will contact me through my website at:  www.chrishartbooks.com and tell me where they want me to send the prizes.

Good luck, all you cartooning and manga maniacs! I know you’ll do great, and have fun doing it.

Your Cartooning Sherpa,
Chris Hart

I want to ask the members of this group -- which would you rather have -- a new drawing contest, or a book "giveaway," based on the first 3 people to answer a list of 6 art questions correctly....?

Send me your message at my profile page, please. I am VERY interest to learn what you think!!

Fellow artists, start your engines, because here we go:

THE CONTEST CHALLENGE:

Take the best, coolest MANGA character you can draw (original or fan art - it doesn't matter), and do a finished, black and white picture of him or her. Then beside that picture, on the same page, take that SAME CHARACTER, and turn it into an appealing RETRO CARTOON -- in color!

ENTREES WILL BE JUDGE ON:

-Character appeal
-Character consistency
-Capturing the two, distinct styles
-Overall drawing skills
-Whether it has a stand-out quality

WINNER'S PRIZE:

A signed book, and a pencil sketch made out to his or her name.

RUNNER UP'S PRIZE:

A signed book.

AND THREE HONORABLE MENTIONS

With a brief commentary about what I liked about your work.

WHERE TO POST YOUR ENTREE:

When you finish, post a link in this journal to your artwork entree, so I can see it, and so anyone else who wants to, can also see it.

CUT OFF TIME WILL BE:

March 1, 2013.

Good luck to everyone! I can't wait to see what you've come up with!

Chris

I just taped a new bunch of How-To-Draw videos for Youtube, and I'm hoping to get them edited and uploaded before the first of the year. Stay tuned for the announcement -- I'll tell everyone when they're ready to see... I think you'll really like these...

Does anyone have a manga graphic novel they're working on? You should post a page or two here. We don't have that many sequential pages on this site, and I know I'd like to see what everyone has been working on; I'm sure others would, too.

I change my mind. I think I am going to add mine in spite of how bad the art is at first and the cheesy dialogue. I could probably get suggestions and tips from other artist for improvements on my second draft. Is it okay if I post the whole thing on here or would it be too much? I have over one hundred pages.

Where do you want to post it? If it's that big, you ought to make some announcements on other sites, to bring in people.

I wanted to post it on DA and on the fan club page, but I might just post a chapter on the fan club page and post the rest of it on my DA page and link it there. I actually have a link to the site it is hosted on on my profile page, but I don't know how many people actually click on the link and you have to be a member of the forum of that site for anyone to post comments about the comic there.
