Mega Man 2 by Pertheseus GA-HQ Art Contest Revenge of Shinobi by Joelchan 3rd Strike, NOW!! by Danusko

The contest ends on Friday (8th November) night 12 PM

Screenshot like self drawn illustrations like the ones above are the topic of this new Game-Art-HQ art contest


Due to other projects like Link's Blacklist being ongoing now and artists being working on it or the Final Fantasy tribute,  this contest starts right now and endures till wednesday the 6th November  


Recreating a screenshot with the own artstyle as seen in the megaman fanarts by Pertheseus  and the Street Fighter III one above is something complicated and needs time and creativity, i guess that not only the results can be some great looking and unusual illustrations of video games, but also be a true challenge for participating artists.

rules: 1 entry per artist, no strong violence, no nudity, no fetish stuff, its up to you what kind of a screenshot you use as reference and also which game is totally your choice.  If there are energy bars, heart containers, left time numbers etc on the screenshot /in the game you draw, they need to be on your artwork as well, self drawn/created of course and notr just copied. This contest is meant to be a difficult challenge for everyone who participates.

The art has to be new and made for this contest of course.
Anything from Pong to a modern or even upcoming game can be used. Only exceptions are scenes from a cutscene or movie.

Its the gameplay or a menu like the robot masters select screen as seen below which has to be illustrated, we saw enough sephiroth killing aerith fan arts in the past already ;)

It's a shame I never got to finish my entry, I broke my leg last week and have only just got out the hospital and now I can't reach my desk to draw LOL.
Anyways, good luck all, there's been some awesome work posted for this contest can't to see who wins.
If I get the chance I'll finish my piece and post it at a later date.

Here's my submission.
I didn't consider the time zone at all so I won't be surprised if I didn't make it, but I enjoyed working on it! 
Hope you enjoy.

hehe, i just knew there will be at least one submission on the last day...its like a tradition for art contests that the last entries are submitted 5 minutes before the finish :-) (it was done one time literally 5 minutes before 12PM and the guy even won)

Interesting choice for the contest, did not expect the new KI there

Hehe 

Yea it just announce just when i found out about the contest back in august so decided to draw the new KI , I was pump especially
with the new soundtracks. But glad i made it!

Reinhold-Hoffmann Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Professional Artist
Hmm the soundtrack of the new Ki interests me more than the game itself i must admit..while i was and am a big fan of the wo original KI games. The XBone is just something i will never support and KI is sadly out for the wrong console this time. The distribution model with 8 characters now and 8 more and a "full game" price of over 80 or 120 bucks is something which makes me shake my head ^^

the music however is a must have if there are many arrangements of the old killer cuts :)

There will be one in the FGE group since a big fan of the capcom character Jin Saotome contacted me and gave me the prize money and i thought it can't hurt to give the group another contest, bet there are some fans of the character there, and the 1st prize is at least a 12 month dA account or 25€  that contest will start there next week

Here on GA-HQ there won't be any contest in the next future, but you read about the art tributes ongoing maybe

There is the 20th Anniversary of Doom one which is sheduled for December this year, there are the Legend of Zelda Tributes, one about the Final Fantasy Protagonists and a big one about the 20th Anniversary of the first Playstation console next year

There's no chance at all. It's an university college about digital arts so we have lessons about how to use Photoshop. We also receive non-stop assignments, so yeah... :noes:

Hm, it's a little late for this, but I'm working on a Link to the Past piece for this that has the health bars and the dialogue box and everything, but the perspective is not top down like in the game, however everything is where it should be. Is that- okay?! If it's not a direct screenshot, but one where I just changed the camera view? 
Reply
:iconreinhold-hoffmann:
Reinhold-Hoffmann Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Professional Artist
I think thats okay and part of the freedom how to draw a fan art that is based on a screenshot, it would be cool if you can provide the screenshot toether with the submission though, so the judges can compare your take on it with the screenshot

Interesting idea btw. Your technique there could work for really awesome illustrations of many 2D based games. There are many for old games already of course, but the most are just showing the protagonists and maybe the antagonist while the gameplay itself is super rarely drawn. Looking forward to your submission!

No problem - it was actually something I wanted to do for a while, so the contest was the final incentive :-) If given the opportunity I'd actually love to work on a remake - maybe I'll make a few mockups of one for fun someday.

Thank you kindly! Sadly i don't have a screenshot at hand on my computer, i don't know how to take screenshots from my WiiU. :S I based it highly on watching my TV screen for hours, i'll try to get a picture of some sort with my camera of this exact hunt (what we call it in Monster Hunter) before the due-date !

Just read your description after i wrote the comment, and i understand that its difficult with the wiiU screenshot, it is alright you don't have to make a screenshot now, it would not be the same as the situation you based your drawing on anyway.

Beside that, what do you think about this method to illustrate a video game? Do you think it is useful, and interesting with all the "HUD" elements like the map etc being a part of the fan art?

What do you think, which other games are suited for this method and was it fun for you? Do you want to use this method in the future too?

Ah, dieser Glitch  :) Ich habe selbst noch nie Pokemon gespielt aber schon mal darüber gelesen.

Ein von dir gemaltes Bild dazu würde definitiv zugelassen werden, deine Gewinnchancen liegen natürlich daran was du daraus machst, bei diesem Wettbewerb liegt er weniger daran welches Spiel oder was für eine Szene in deinem eigenem Stil gezeichnet wird sondern wie du das ganze rüberbringen kanst, deiner Kreeativität sind keine Grenzen gesetzt. Du könntest z.B aus diesem Glitch Screenshot ein wahres klassisch angehauchtes Gemälde machen das zwar immer noch quasi den Screenshot zeigt aber dabei total geil aussieht, oder du verwendestest Comic oder Cartoon Stile etc.

Letztendlich diesnt der Wettbewerb ja auch dazu Künslter aus dieser Gruppe dazu zu motivieren Spiele mal anders als sonst darzustellen
