THIS CONTEST IS OVER! But feel free to still do the challenge if you want. :D


--

It's been a long time since we've had a drawing challenge around here, so let's do something that will test your skills AND help the general drawing community!

As many of you probably know, finding references for multiple people can be tough. It's also a good exercise to compose multiple figures into one image! This challenge aims to both help you practice your multi-figure skills AND help the community have more resources for this type of composition!

How To Enter!

  1. Create a line art drawing with 5 or more full body figures together using SenshiStock images as the reference.
  2. Submit your composition under the Resources & Stock Images -> Line-art & Character Templates section, OR the appropriate pixel base section, with a Creative Commons license. In the Artist's Comments, link to the SenshiStock poses that you used so people can go back to check them for additional information if they want to use your composition.
  3. The contest portion of this challenge is over, but you can still do it for fun and you'll be helping other artists, too!

Additional Notes

  • Submitting to Creative Commons means you will allow people to use your submissions for their art. This means your work may be traced, vectored, referenced, pixeled, copied, redistributed, etc. (but it should always be with credit!). If you are not willing to allow people to use your work in this manner, please do not enter the contest.  You choose the CC license near the bottom of your submission in the section called "Publishing Options."
  • You can modify the poses somewhat to fit the composition as long as you started with something inspired by SenshiStock for each pose.
  • "Together" means there should be some overlap in the poses so they work as a cohesive group. Some parts of the poses might be obscured for compositional purposes, but they should generally be full body.
  • Any medium is okay, so long as the figure's outlines are clear. You can have additional form definition like cross contour or shading if you want, but it's not required. Don't add on any hair or outfits that obscure the form.

PRIZES!


Prizes will be awarded randomly to eligible participants. I will give out as many prizes as I can! Each token counts as an entry so you increase your odds of winning by doing additional figures. Prizes include, but are not limited to:
For physical items, shipping is free worldwide. If you have any questions, please ask me. HAPPY DRAWING! :happybounce:
Update: only just days left now! Get going and draw a group!!
A drawing challenge for artists with some cool prizes.

I've been wanting to do a picture with dancing faeries for a long time, so this challenge was a great way to finally get around to doing it!:w00t: (I do hope it's okay that I kept the wings on the little faeries; they are based on your angel poses, so hopefully that don't count as obstruction to the form as the wings where already there in the original stock.)


Here is my entry: Fairy dance Line-art. I filled in the form last night and I hope I submitted it the right way :)


I've never done an actual line work like this before, except then it's more of a sketch and instantly turned into a drawing. I had some problems making the drawing looking the same on the computer as it does on paper, so I hope it's good enough. It was a fun challenge and surprisingly hard to make a composition with a group of people; to make all the pieces of the pose puzzle fit together so to speak. I learned a lot from this contest while having tons of fun! :happybounce:


Oh, and by the way I adore the cats walking by in a lot of the pictures! :meow:

no wait, duh. I knew it. umm... If I overlap some of the figures do the figures still count as a full body figures?

This might be silly question, but some of your images have more than one figure. Do these count as separate figures?

yeah if you take two poses from one image that's two :D

Hey Senshi,

Can I give the bases different body types (larger/ skinner forms) as long as I use your stock as a ref? Or 
do I have to keep the bases close to your body type? :3

This has probably been asked before but I just need to make sure <3 

1) Does it only have to be lineart with no colors at all?
2) Do we draw it like bases or we can draw a character out of your references (with clothing and hair)?

:iconsenshistock:
SenshiStock Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
The line art can be colored if you want, like to show different figures or whatever.
You should draw them like a base but if you want to then continue with it and make it into some art, go for it! :D The base part would be entered into the contest but there's no reason you can't keep going :3
