38 (who?)
I'm a sucker for studies lately. I hope I wont bore you all with my studies. If I do, than my excuses, but I tent to make at least 100 of these in 3 months time.
Right now I just uploaded number 5 and I already learned so much about colors, composition and lighting.
Facebook is the first place where I upload these studies, without a title, there people can guess what movie it is from.
The first person with the right answer gets to choose the new movie.…

So this contest wont be easy on you guys. But let me lure you in with a great price!

:bulletred: 1st place winner will receive:
Elysium- Artbook from Daarken…

And a feature on my Facebook.

:bulletred:  The runner up will receive:
The Art of Assassins Creed III…

(There is one important note on this: I will order the books from Amazon. So your country will have to have an Amazon store.
I will not pay over 10 euro for shipping. If this is the case however, but you still want to receive this prize you must cover the shipping yourself.
If you won 1st place or runner up and you don't want/cannot have the books, I will give you a DA membership instead.)

:bulletblue: Deadline: :bulletblue: March 26 (Tue) (before 12 at midnight, London time)
:bulletblue: Announcement of the winners: :bulletblue: March 27 (Wed) (8 in the eveing, London time) on my livestream

:bulletorange: So what do you need to so to get these prizes? :bulletorange:
Here I will give you 5 movie Titles. Make a screenshot study of 1 hour on all 5 of them (meaning 1 hour each)
Upload them separately or in 1 file on Deviantart and send me the thumb or link.

1. Alien.
2. V for Vendetta.
3. Lord of the rings movies (or from the new Hobbit movie)
4. Kingdom of heaven.
5. Avatar (The one from James Cameron.)

You must also tell me what you have learned.
Keep to the 1 hour limit please, I will compare these studies with the rest of your artwork.

Good luck!!

I will judge the images on a few things and pick out the best.
notice: not looking for the images closest to the end result.

I gotta commend you for making this sort of a competition for others. A great encouragement for studies. I usually so 10-15-30min studies from movie screens, but I might give this a shot. :)

Well, I haven't posted stuff since November, and I've done a lot of work since then. Would you still compare my new stuff with my old stuff?
Suzanne-Helmigh Feb 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
yes, but with that knowledge in mind :) Why haven't you posted anything since November? :)
Sarmati Mar 3, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
My laptop overheats (so painting gets tricky, but can be done), I don't have a scanner and a poor quality camera. ;) Lots of line and pencil work has been done meenwhile. [link]
