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.
  • Entries must be done completely from scratch by their respective participants. This means no pre-existing stock materials are allowed, regardless of the degree to which they have been altered. Whoever is caught intentionally violating this rule will be subject to the punishment stated in our Forum Rules regarding Credit Theft.
  • 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

Draw something that includes no more and no less than these 4 base colors.



  • Deadline: 12:00AM (GMT +0) on Monday, February 24th, 2014.
  • Poll for voting will be available from the submission deadline to Saturday, March 1st, 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!

Argh, again a nice challenge... I already couldn't find time for the last one, I need to search harder! D: (but with three deadlines coming up this week... *dies**revives with 10%HP*)

The new banner's cool, pretty distinct change from the dreamy island from before. I like it. Futuristic chalkboard?

If I manage to find time, I've got one question:
Does base colour mean that it's only these to be used or can saturation and brightness be adjusted?
Never worked with a real limited palette before.

(If I don't find time, I'll just be watching in silence and awe, looking at what everyone'll come up with and get a bad conscience for not trying. :) )

You can adjust the saturation and brightness, but not by any large measure that the required colors are no longer recognizable :D

So as far as shading goes... Using darker/lighter values and what not, of the specified colors, are considered different colors altogether or not?

Nope. I said BASE colors in the theme.

Ty Julien. The trick to all my art: 

Step1: Make the img x1000 and then start drawing.

Step2: When finished, shrink it back down to size.

Step3: Profit

Talo, you cannot take a photo from a google image search, change some colors and claim it as your own.  Copyright is still held by the original photographer and any modification still requires permission and credit.

I will abide by your rules, but please let me know about them.
Happy to oblige. :)


Forum Rules

Forum Rules - INSTANT BAN OFFENSES said:
2. Credit theft. Do NOT claim any art, music, scripts, etc. as your own unless you made them. Credit people before submitting a post!
This applies not only to resources from THIS site, but resources you get from ANYWHERE (and it always has). If you use someone else's work and post it here, you credit them.


You might also be interested in this one:

Forum Rules 4.3 said:
Do NOT continue to argue in the same thread after a moderator or admin has used mod voice (blue or red text) to warn you. Please PM the moderator if you wish to discuss your warning, or follow the procedure at the bottom of [the Forum Rules thread].
The forum rules are accessible from the link in the bottom right of EVERY forum page. I suggest you read them before claiming we don't let you know about them :)


------------------


After discussing this with you in PM, I will say this:


IF you want to submit that piece for the challenge, go ahead, but in accord with our forum-wide rules, you MUST give credit to the original artist. Otherwise you are giving the impression that you created the whole thing yourself, and as you can see, that comes under our bannable offense rules.


Whether editing someone else's work is in the spirit of the challenge or not, and whether such a submission is a valid entry, I will leave up to the person running it.

Where is the "world-weary sigh" comment response when you need it? I need that one more than anything, but the closest we have is "wow" or "angry".
My apologies if it's out-of-place for my goyim-lookin' ass to be the one to say it, but the mythology of "Golems" is that they were created by Rabbis to protect Jewish villages from Anti-semetic attacks.
I'm moving on from RMXP finally. I've been stuck in a difficult decision between XP and MZ, and I've given up and moved on to MZ. Overall I'm really liking it, I wish tilesets were easier to setup like XP, but it's actually not that bad!
Have you ever gone full 'Ship of Theseus' while frankenspriting? Because I just did.
I saw my new eye doctor today, he reminds me of Satoru Iwata for some reason
