    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.

    [​IMG]

    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

    Design a Weapon.

    • Deadline: 12:00AM (GMT +0) on Monday, February 17th, 2014.
    • Poll for voting will be available from the submission deadline to Saturday, February 22nd, 2014.
    • 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!

    Hmmm...this is definitely going to conflict with the "Encounters of the Boss Kind" contest I'm already doing. Hopefully, I can still push out a tune for such a theme...!

    Hm, I like the difficulty, it's not high.  We're being eased back into the art mood slowly after the break.  Not to mention that we probably lost a lot of participants and it'll take some time for them to rejoin, if they are anyway (after seeing the fantastic art of all the competitors, you guys better be rejoining).

    Anyways, I think I'm going to go for a Dark Cloud approach.  For those who do not know, that was a game where the protagonist, Max, was sort of an inventor.  You could invent weapons (with unique designs in my opinion) from peculiar items, such as a tennis racket or something.

    Nice challenge, endless possibilities. Part of the challenge seems to be to choose which kind of weapon. D:

    I hope I'll find time for this. And everyone else does, too.

    Until then, is it okay to share a linklist to some weapon references? http://www.vikingsword.com/ethsword/ Found this site some time ago, think its helpful for getting inspiration/information.

    Made this drawing for a Dungeons&Dragons campaign I'm starting with some friends. Since I made kind of a weird Scyth maybe it blends in well with this week's challange :)

    [​IMG]
    I made the handle pretty rough aswell as the blade looking really used-up and old to resemble a Grimm Reaper-ish Schyth. Also added a piece of wood at the left to give it some balance, or else it would probably brake in the junction between the handle and the blade due to the blade's weight xD

    Quite the nice drawing BustedEd.

    I just went with a silly idea and drew sword that freezes on one side and scorches on the other.

    Looking forward to seeing the entries, I've been keeping an eye on these challenges for a while and it's great seeing everyone put out such great art in such a short time. :)

    I'll take any chance to design a weapon! It's something I always enjoy but never seem to do it enough. Anyways, here's my swordie sword~

    [​IMG]

    This will probably be my finalised submission, though I wish I had time to do a matching shield...

    @VE: God I'm totally in love with that sword ;_; and dayum your style is always so clean.

    Also I've decided that whoever wins this one will get a pixellated version of their submission as the winning badge XD

    As this is RPG Maker, here is a sprite for a Spear/Sword.  Looks better as an Icon though.

    @Alex:- Awww, thanks! I'm really happy with it too, for the most part. I should probably have done the other side as well as it has an asymmetrical design but, I'm really lazy busy!

    People keep saying my style is clean... but tbh I did that in just a couple of hours and I keep staring at it thinking the lines and shading are all messy and uneven and need cleaning up XD

    Still, I'll take the compliment! :)

    I was debating on what design I should put up, but I settled to submit this one!
    [​IMG]
    Not final! I'll give it some adjustments and color later, but I usually like to draw weapons in a sheet with bits of info smattered on it.

    @tyler I would love to use that sword as an icon in the game, but I feel it would lose something during the resize

    So glad the weekly challenge is rolling again! here's my submission, inspired by the hype surrounding MGS I decided to design something wacky, a parody of the notorious HF Blade used by Raiden in MG: RIising and here it's a High Frequency Rolling Pin -powered by Nanomachines™- . Not only this is a weapon capable of cutting your into enemy into pieces, suitable at times of war, but at times of peace it is very useful too! you can instantly make a high quality pastry dough with the help of nanomachines infused in this rolling pin! :guffaw:
