BEFORE YOU ENTER THE CONTEST PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES! (Print them out if you need to for future reference) Welcome to the SuperHeroHYPE Fan Art Contest! THE CONTEST: PAST THEIR PRIME - What if your favorite hero (or villain) found him/her self past their prime? - Too old to strap on the cape & utility-belt? Maybe they should have retired years ago? Or maybe its a character that is just plain out of place in today's world... - This could be a lot of fun, just let your imagination go wild! - Feel free to take it further... what if they had 'offspring' (*)If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send EXCELSIOR a PM! THE RULES: One entry per artist. Try and be as ORIGINAL as possible, do it in pencil, crayon, markers, action figures, Photoshop whatever medium you are comfortable with. Using art/photo reference is okay, I just don't want to see anyone directly COPY an existing piece of ARTWORK... PHOTO-MANIPS are allowed this month! Your entry should be posted HERE in this thread. Using artwork created by someone else and claiming it as your own will not be allowed - and that entry will be disqualified. Originality is always key! (*)If you are banned at the close of the contest your entry will be disqualified! And please keep the comments and critiques as FAIR as possible. Remember by posting your entry you are open to critique! ONE ENTRY PER ARTIST! Take your time and show 'em your best work, try to avoid posting works-in-progress. (Any duplicate entries may be deleted without notice from the thread). You may want to check the thread occasionally to see that your entry is still posted, any entries not showing at the close of the contest may be disqualified. Also if you choose to 'team-up' with another artist then you must clearly state both names with the entry and who did what. IMAGE HOSTING All entries should be posted here in this thread. You will need to host your own image and 'hotlink' the image URL to this thread. Entries must be visible in this thread - posting a text link only your entry can be missed! SHH has a gallery HERE if you need FREE hosting space (for contest entries only please) I will assemble the entries as they come in and post them in the SHH Fan Art Gallery. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send EXCELSIOR a PM! THE DEADLINE & VOTING: March 27, 2008 - (contest closes midnight PST on the 27th) Winner will be chosen by the artists in FAN ART - via a special voting gallery! Winner also gets a bump in avatar size! - WHOOT! So there is your assignment if you chose to take it... You should post your artwork here in this thread! ONLY IMAGES CREATED BY YOU AND POSTED ONLY IN THIS THREAD ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE CONTEST. By entering the contest you are agreeing that the artwork submitted is original and created by you the artist, and original to this contest and by posting an image you are open to critique!
