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.
www.facebook.com/suzanne.helmi…


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 www.amazon.com/Elysium-The-Daa…

And a feature on my Facebook.

:bulletred:  The runner up will receive:
The Art of Assassins Creed III www.amazon.com/The-Art-Assassi…



(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 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?

In the end; challenge accepted. And despite the last comment I posted a week or so ago regarding portraits... I think I'll have to make myself do em since its one of my weakest areas. Until then, I'll be doing some studies! Thanks for the challenge, and I'll be linking in a few weeks :)

Is it okay if I send them as I finish one?

..and just one more question(I hope it's the last one):do we have to make each film...or is it okay if I make 5 studies using only some of them?

It's an interesting contest, truely.

I would enter it, If I didn't know that I my image won't be finished after an hour.
It won't be at the realism level like yours, maybe a drawing, which traces the main characteristics more or less acurately.

Yeah, and this fact really bothers me. :'(

I wish all people, who enter this contest good luck and a lot of fun.

awwee, I don't expect everyone to deliver what I do. (I had a lot of training.)
I'm sure many people feel like you do and it's always worth to try and I would love to see the result, even if they don't look finished to you.

Hi! Great idea! Just wanted to ask about colors picking. What do with that? I know that some people use this opportunity, is it count and free to do?

:iconsuzanne-helmigh:
Suzanne-Helmigh Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I'm not really against that, but it would be fair and appreciated if the person did state this in the description and written learning process. I'm aware that this challenge may be more difficult to some than for others. It will be taken into account of course and I can only hope I can trust people to be honest about this and the time limit.
