Beyond the Frontier II



This series of contests has been started to motivate you, the artists, to try new things, to fight with your abilities and to learn things by giving your best. In the end, winning something shouldn't be the important part of the whole procedure, but creating new art and maybe reaching new dimensions concerning your personal skills. Which is much more worth than any prize you can get. But don't worry, there are still many awesome prizes to get! ;)

Beyond the frontier is a series of space and science-fiction art contests. So your entries should fit to this genre from the very first sight. For inspiration and some impressions of what we are talking about, please regard the following galleries as some very nice examples: Science Fiction and Space Art



:diny: Centre of Power :diny:


The topic of our second contest is Centre of Power. In space, the centre of power can be a sun, the heart of a galaxy, a planet's core etc.. It's also possible to create something futuristic. To break it down: it just has to be related to sci-fi. Open your mind! There are billions of possibilities out there. The only limit is set by your own imagination! Show us the impossible! Show us something new!! Show us your centre of power!!!



:alien: Rules :alien:


:bulletred: Timeframe: Starting: November  6st | :new:Deadline has been extended Ending: January 31st, 11:59 PM PST
:bulletred: How to participate: If your (newly created) image fits to the topic and genre, please upload it to the following contest-gallery: Contests->2009->Beyond the Frontier->Center of Power within the timeframe. All mediums are allowed. If you use any stock, you have to credit your sources. To make it short: it has to meet dA's rules :thumbsup:
:bulletred: Judges: gucken and taenaron + a volunteer



:eager: Prizes :eager:


Some awesome prizes are waiting for you!!!

This contest doesn't say anything about what medium is allowed. I guess digital art? I'm a photographer, that's why I ask

If you can take a sci-fic photo, then of course you're allowed to enter ;) But I would suggest to use digital or traditional art for this kind of contest ;)

no you submitted it in the wrong category in Digital Art > 3-Dimensional Art > Scenes > Spacescapes

It's supposed to be in Contests > 2009 > Frontier > Center of power.
quick!!

That's a really nice suggestion - and I would do it - but I'm happy to admit that I don't think mine would be a podium entry and it hasn't put me off entering the next contest at all and getting the image in the right category!

It was a very fun and rewarding experience, but I'm happy to wait for the next one and make something even better that might survive to get to the podium! I need this sort of motivation to get an image finished, so it feels good just to finish an image.

Since the deadline has been extended I'll have a rethink about my image and resubmit a new version of it before the new deadline. And this time I won't make the same silly mistake.

I wasn't happy with the original version anyways - so the deadline extension really was the difference between getting this in at all... I was having a hard time bringing myself to enter it before I spent a good long time with it in photoshop.

I'm looking forward to seeing the results. :D I don't create space art myself, but I have loved it for over 10 years. I first found some of Greg Martin's work, then Gary Tong's, and have loved it ever since.

If you need a volunteer to help with judging the final works, let me know.

Sounds like a nice contest, and it´s a great initiative.
But I suggest removing the prizes completely, cuz those are close to ridiculous.
