*NEW* Design Contest - Month of October

Discussion in 'Artwork - Photoshops and Sketches' started by theimportguy, Sep 24, 2006.

  1. Design Contest - Month of October

    Rules and Regulations


    Media: graphite(pencil)
    Size: basic 8.5 X 11" paper

    Theme: Design an updated version of a current exotic/supercar. Use a current model, and either design an updated version of the vehicle, or design a successor to that model. Also, give it a name whether it be the same or a new name. You can use any maker you'd like whether it be European, American, Japanese, etc..

    Details: You can either draw one single view of the vehicle, preferably taking up most of the page, or you can draw more than one view, again taking up most of the page. The latter will allow you to show more of your design and score more for yourself.

    I would also like for the design to be more realistic than not. Like the first design sketches of cars we always see. Just think it would work better as to see more drawing skill I feel. But if you do end up drawing something more like that, still enter as it will still be a design and could still see you come out on top!

    Contest will run from October 1st to October 31st. Entries to be in before 12:00am on November 1st. And entries will not be accepted until after 12:00am October 1st. That is one month to design your vehicle.

    Judging and prizes to be determined. If nothing is clear by the beginning date, then the first contest will just be a voting contest by the forum, much like the Photoshop Contest. Either way, there will be a forum vote.

    Entries can be sent to - kris13.5@hotmail.com
    Don't post your entries.

    Because I won't be getting back from SEMA till November 5th or 6th, a poll will not be made till the day after I get back.


    For those who know they will be entering, please post that you will be. Just to know whether this will turn out to be a big waste of time.
     
  2. Design Contest - Month of October

    So, I got the idea from AmFm's post of his Zonda. So if you would like, AmFm, you can either use the entry you posted, or you can do a new one. It's up to you.

    As for prizes...to be honest, I dont want to be responsible for sending out or dealing with prizes...but if Bugattiart would like to donate prints as planned in the beginning, then that is cool, but I probably shouldnt be relied on for that. And again, if Bugattiart and Plucke would like to judge again, that would be cool aswell. If not, then it will be up to the forum to decide. Hopefully that can be sorted out by October 1st...which WILL be the opening date of the contest. And again, if there is to be judging, we have to decide on what it will be based on...though just on design and creativity will probably suffice.

    Again, if you think I am missing anything to this, please let me know. I made this more strict than what I had tried before, but that is the best way to make it good. And I plan on this happening every month with a new theme...whether there are prizes or not.

    So get back on this stuff, and then I think we will have a contest on our hands. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  3. i will probably be in for this one.
     
  4. Ill try and do something radically different for this.
     
  5. I usaully draw some designs for cars when im bored so you can probly count me in. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  6. Can someone please sticky this?
     
  7. u should define how judging works and what will be considererd when scoring.
     
  8. That is something I wanted get arranged before October, but I havent heard anything from Bugattiart and Plucke, whom were going to judge last time. So if we dont hear from them before the start time, or shortly after I suppose, it will just be a voting contest.
     
  9. Well...the contest is now open. I hope to see a few entries atleast. And it will just be a poll at the beginning of November.
     
  10. i'm in <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  11. ok quick question, can i design a competitor to a current supercar built by a different manufacturer??

    (i ask because i just sketch things every now and then and i came up with a direct competitor for the 612 scaglietti built by audi, but thats not specifically in your rules)
     
  12. I drew this at work.
     
  13. I will allow that. If this takes off well, then every month or maybe less, there will be a new design contest, and I will come up with many different themes, and Im sure would probabyl take suggestions too, but we'll leave that till then.
     
  14. That is pretty sweet. I hope you werent planning on using that as an entry, cause I stated to send them to the e-mail above...but if not, then I look forward to making up something else for this!



    I REALIZED I FORGOT SOMETHING IN THE RULES

    I posted it in the fist post aswell...but, I would like for the design to be more realistic than not. Like the first design sketches of cars we always see. Just think it would work better as to see more drawing skill I feel. But if you do end up drawing something more like that, still enter!



     
  15. I wasn't even planning on entering actually.
     
  16. Boooooooo!
     
  17. i suck at depth perception but i make a pretty mean profile angle of a car.... is that cool?
    [good ideas, poor artist... but this is about the DESIGN not the drawing right?]
     
  18. Both...but do what you can and that would be alright, as I dont think there will be any formal judgung for this one.
     
  19. just make a poll. The idea of designing a car is for it to appeal to the general public, so thats gonna be the best way to judge if it is good or not.
     
  20. To busy with school now. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  21. im not gonna have as much time as i thought i would for this. if you did one next month i would have heaps of free time <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  22. Anyone else to partake?
     
  23. My design is almost finished. Think of a homologation special, like the 911 GTI or CLK GTR, but based on a certain Asian sports car....
     
  24. Well...send it when your done.

    Anyone else wanting to participate, please do. I hope to get more than one entry.
     
  25. crap i forgot about this, um i have way too much uni work to do right now, can you push the submission date back to maybe next weekend?
