Pixelart Contest #6- Theme: Lovecraft

in Pixelart7 months ago


Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Pixelart community contest! The main goal is to have some fun <3 This week's theme is "Lovecraft", as today is 130 years since he was born :D The theme is open to interpretation, so you can draw Cthulhu, some other monster or even a creepy mansion/dungeon.

The winner(s) will get this post's total payout number but in Hive.

Any donations to the prize pool are appreciated. <3

I'll pick the winner, your post quality can influence my choice.
Depending on the prize pool size I'll pick winner(s) and possibly honorable mention and random winner. Since we have a more entries I'll probably use some prize pool for random winner but that means no rule exceptions anymore. I feel this will be more fair to many those just getting started with pixelart ^^

Minimum prize pool is 5hive.

● No copying other pixelart
● You can use photo reference (CC0 photos recommended).
● Non-traditional pixelart is welcome: like color pencils on paper (or voxel)

Congratulations to all the winners. Personally, I enjoyed each of the works that participated in contest # 5 and also learned a lot from the designs of @andielor, @dayerlis, @neove, @karinanunez @cesarisaad, @lisbethseijas, @atlantiss, @cetb2008 and @librepensadora.

I hope to see you in this one that is just beginning, challenge # 6 the award is very tempting.

Thank you @Kristyglas for this magnificent initiative and the sponsors, especially #ocd, @flauwy and all those who vote to reward the originality of the creations that are displayed here in the @pixelart community.

Hope you join again :D
Yeah I'm happy the prize pool is decent and I can reward more people, it's really hard to pick. Also Ocd is very helpful with curating Pixelart community ^_^

I understand the implicit difficulty of the judgment of art, but I really appreciate your good judgment and drive to promote this nascent community. You're doing a great job.

I don't see this new challenge as easy, but if it weren't, it would stop being a challenge lol. Let's have what I can think of.

Have a great day.

Thank you ^_^
The theme is open to interpretation, so if drawing a scene is too much, you can draw a creepy book/ necronomicon, or something else :D Plus it's fun to see variety of what people come up with.
You have a great day too!!

Thanks! 👍

They really show great displays of pixelart art. And at least I am learning every day from what I observe and how they make their designs. Congratulations to the winners. A pleasure to participate

Totally agree with you.

Have a great Friday.

Greetings to all beautiful pixelart congratulations to all the winners and thanks for your words friend @janaveda. every day we learn much more about how to improve our pixelart.

I'm really happy to see so many artworks ^_^ Hope you share more!

You're welcome. From my perspective, we are all winners.

Have a great day my friend.

Thanks friend

You're welcome, my friend.

It's continually incredible to see the awesome artwork that the community have been creating on the Hive. These are a source of inspiration for when I'm ready to make my own artwork, someday. I hate to admit this, but I haven't read a H.P. Lovecraft book before, although I hear loads of great things about it. My brother likes them, so maybe I should sneak a book or two from him, eh? 😁

Yayyy I can't wait to see you art :D It's mostly short-ish stories. Rats in the walls is a cool one and apparently there is motion comic that I just discovered on YT :D Going to check it out myself in a bit

Ooooh, spooky! I'm definitely going to spend some time watching more of this, and maybe get a copy of the book, too! 😁

This is cool. Here's my submission. This is fun for learning how to draw.
