Splash

Rules:
Create a splash effect!

Scoring and Winning:
ATTENTION (!!)- We will be attempting to roll out for the first time in a couple years (!!) a community-based voting system! It isn’t a final solution that is meant to be perfect, but may inch us closer to that perfect system. During the month we’ll be figuring out specifics, but if it all pans out we’ll go ahead with it at the end of the month! With that said, regardless of if we roll it out or not, we will hold the community to the current judging criteria, which includes:

Judging criteria includes:

  • You showed WIP throughout the month
  • Your work is technically and artistically well-executed.
  • Followed challenge rules.

Stay tuned!

Submitting: Create a new topic in the " Events > 34 - Splash " category with your name and sketch number in the title (Like this: “Katara: Sketch #34” ), and post your updates to your topic during the month!

When you are finished, Edit your first post so it holds the final effect in the form of Youtube/Vimeo Video or High-Quality GIFs.


Important:

  • Always cite your sources! Is your work based on someone else’s? Let us know! Always show your references.
  • All entries must be made during the running period shown below.
  • Do feel free to use any tool, system or workflow that pre-existed. Although we encourage experimentation.
  • Using a simple environment for presentation is allowed, but should remain simple and serve only as background.

April 7th → April 30th 11:59 PST

Badges:
