Introduction

Weekly Art Challenge is a recurring event for the Art, Literature and Music forum wherein there is a new challenge for artists every week. The goal of the event is to encourage art and going outside the box by imposing interesting challenges and limitations. After a week, a poll will be up for everyone to vote to select the best entry. The winner with the most votes will receive a pretty little badge for bragging rights.

Also, please be sure to check out the previous challenge's thread.

 ​
Rules

  • A new challenge/theme will be posted up in a new thread every week.
  • Participants are to follow the rules imposed by the challenge/theme. Any questions may be asked. However, I reserve the right to disqualify any entries that I feel do not meet the criterion.
  • A challenge lasts for approximately a week. Deadline for all Weekly Challenges is strictly at 12:00AM, GMT +0, on Monday.
  • On the week after, a poll will be up in the same thread. Only one entry will win. In the case where there are more than one winning entry with equal votes, all winning entries will be rewarded.
  • Poll for voting will be available from the submission deadline to Saturday, when the winner will be announced.
  • The winner gets to call the theme/challenge for the following week. If the winner does not wish to do so, then I will come up with one.
  • All forms of art are welcome.
  • No need to register. Just start working on your entry right away if you've decided to participate.
  • Post your entries in this thread. WIPs are encouraged, but please explicitly specify your final submission.
  • There is absolutely no measurements coming from us on the completion of a piece. Whether a piece is complete for final submission or not, is entirely your own call. So don't be discouraged if you think you can only afford to doodle a couple lines. Anything is fine.
This week's Challenge

A monochromatic illustration of death.
 ​
  • Deadline: 12:00AM (GMT +0) on Monday, December 16th, 2013.
  • Poll for voting will be available from the submission deadline to Saturday, December 21st, 2013.
  • Any questions may be asked here.
  • All forms of art are welcome.
  • Post your entries in this thread. WIPs are encouraged, but please explicitly specify your final submission.



And that is it. Have fun!

well, just wanna make sure, usage of RTP for example to produce something for this is fine?


PS: so it could be music or literature too?

Sadly, no. It has to be original. And I'm not quite sure how one can compose or write something monochromatic.

I see... well yeah, seeing as how monochrome is meant to only describe graphical art... hahaha...


but mixing text with graphical art is fine?

Sure thing. Even if it's just a couple of doodles, it's fine. Don't be discouraged to do art without relying on existing stock materials :)

Work in progress.

Quick sketch (Black pencil + black pastel).

p.s. the name of Challenge contains the word "monochromatic" , does it means only 1 colour can be used or I can use 2 colours as well?

I think I can do this, hopefully grayscale is acceptable.

From definition, monochrome uses 1 color... but you can use different shades of it (like grayscale, which are basically composed of different shades of (grey? or white? or is it black?)

A monochrome image of death and Christmas go hand in hand when you work in retail :D :D :D D: D: D: D:


I have so many ideas rolling around in my head for this; hopefully I can pick one and hammer it out in time.

OK!


i got a little carried away!! (i always do hehe heh)


so i have a bunch of WIPS to show, not sure which one will be the one i choose to be the final...


it was fun to work in monochrome, i mostly stuck to grayscale but i also included a couple of true monochromatic versions as well!


please let me know what you think!!  I know the art "style" i chose is unconventional, but hey, we're talking about death so i made em scary...


:)


i included a few attachment files for quick reference, if youd like to see the many more WIPS please check out the SPOILER content!!!

1st takes- larger design











2nd takes - smaller design































More simple face designs

Really you guys don't realize that this is a weekly thing and it's not the Christmas week yet?

Not for all. Probably my bad for not making it clear. But this one still counts as experimental.

Well.. I was going to post my randomly generated road experiments... But the new "Attach Files" on profile posts seems to be quite buggy. Also there's no more option to insert Imgur images. Highly unfortunate. Guess I'll give them a bit to fix it and go back to messing with stuff.
my first day back to working on my project and i'm pooped!! hope to get back in the rhythm soon!
I just came up with a very original RPG Idea. This is so well written that it might be the first RPG I actually finish making. (I’ve stopped all my projects halfway through development. I don’t think this one will be the same.)
Became a news junkie... except for those times I got inspired and published a chapter of any of my crazy stories. XD
