Teen Challenge 114: Betrayal
That's right, this weeks topic is betrayal. I want to see you people making betrayals so... betrayaly that I break down in tears.
I want to see lovers betray each other, I want to see dynasties fall,
I want to see kind Kurt smash the doll of Little Lucy after she so kindly entrusted him with the dolls safety.
It's in our blood, let's see it in our art.
Focus is a new addition to the Teen Challenges to... well, challenge you a bit more!
This week's focus is composition.
"In the visual arts — in particular painting, graphic design, photography and sculpture — composition is the placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients in a work of art, as distinct from the subject of a work. It can also be thought of as the organization of the elements of art according to the principles of art." -Wikipedia
The deadline is Sunday 3rd of April, 23:59 GMT
One week, one competition. Hit it!

we should stop spamming this topic hahaha
March 28th, 2011, 02:44 AM
Its not spam, its discussion. Are you actually going to do it this week? I mean I have an idea but not sure if I can pull it off. It will involve 2 people and as I struggle drawing one I doubt this will end well.
(off topic note) - Yeah the voting is currently deadlocked with four of us on one :P
March 28th, 2011, 05:07 AM
i'm probably not gonna enter this weeks, doing chow and idow and maybe eow lol
March 28th, 2011, 05:45 AM
Awh, that sucks haha. If I get the time will try. Really depressed about the last topic, actually thought my 1st decent painting would win it for me, apparently not. I hope people have not liked themselves. Find that so depressing. Always will vote for someone different.
March 28th, 2011, 08:06 AM

March 30th, 2011, 01:08 PM

March 30th, 2011, 07:43 PM
Depends on what league you are in. Tell me that and I will decide for you.
March 31st, 2011, 06:57 PM
Started on one. Not sure if I'll finish since exams are coming up blah blah:
April 1st, 2011, 10:33 AM
Harr, i have an idea.. But the anatomy is probably to tricky for me. :/
April 1st, 2011, 11:26 AM
Really impressive jenny :), guys good news! It being my birthday yesterday I got a new tablet :D, hopefully my work should now improve as the back isn't falling off the thing.
I may or may not do this one... bit of a limited topic this week :/
April 1st, 2011, 03:54 PM
Did a little bit more:
Enter Platinguard! I don't want to be the only entrant...
All by my selllfff~
April 1st, 2011, 05:05 PM
"I may or may not do this one... bit of a limited topic this week :/"
If by limited you mean, there isn't much to draw regarding the topic; well, you're only limited by your imagination. :)
jenny7332: :O That's some nice work you have there, I can really feel the emotion coming from that face. Composition-wise I'm sorry to say I can't help you there, I don't know anything about it! But keep refining even if you are the only participant (though I doubt it, I think someone will manage to suddenly make a painting appear)
Hopefully you can draw something for this competition Platingaurd, I am curious to see how much better you are with your new tablet. EDIT: Oh yeah, happy (late) birthday by the way. :D
April 1st, 2011, 05:39 PM
Also I forgot to say Happy Birthday!
This will probably be as finished as it's going to get.
April 1st, 2011, 07:42 PM
I might be making this after all! First WIP. I had this idea of someone getting betrayed by the one who has been with them all their lives, who's always been there.... their own shadow ;O Ooooh and happy birthday Platinguard! Congratulations on the new tablet ;D
April 2nd, 2011, 10:21 AM
Second WIP. The layers are a complete mess and it probably wont turn out very well in the end but I've learnt alot from it.
April 2nd, 2011, 04:47 PM
As my gf broke up with me, and I am incredibly drunk. I decided I WILL do this. If it takes me all not. Quality I am not sure if I can, but now I have that betrayal feeling coursing through my veins I am thinking I should be ok.
Jenny, your work is amazing, Seriously. It looks just fantastic. Seriously. If you look, as good as your work looks... you are going to be just fine, you have my vote.
Ah lunatic hermit, if only it was that my imagination is limited, but actually I choose to limit it myself to my skill, which is kinda like... well my work is essentially spitting on a page signing it and crossing my fingers so yeah.
GrowdanBowl well done, good start. You keep up the good work my good sir.
April 2nd, 2011, 05:13 PM
Well, I would have done but for the second time in 3 days my new graphics tablet don't work and am going to replace it... don't buy Wacom Bamboos... they are really shit
April 2nd, 2011, 07:14 PM
That sucks... for some reason the newer ones I buy break faster,
I have an old WACOM Graphire that's like 5 years old and it's still going
whereas my Intuos 3 broke after a year...
You could still do it old school?
You've used a nice sharp edge on the shadow's claws,I like the shape of those and the slight blur on the side.
The shadow doesn't look quite right to me, it doesn't
connect to him like it should since the light's touching the floor there.
The shadow also shouldn't be completely opaque or one tone, but that
does depend on how harsh the lighting is.
Also, for shading things like clothing and skin, the airbrush probably isn't
such a good idea since it kind of fuzzes over any sharp edges that you
could be making like on the T-shirt, all your creases look like lines because
of the fuzzy brush and the way you haven't followed through with the
shading: you have the edges drawn in, but creases (along with most things)
need a highlight and lowlight to actually look like they're coming out from
the background etc. so it ends up looking more like a mark than a fold.
You might want to try experimenting with a harder brush to get in those
His feet also don't look grounded and the arms are very long, but this is
just a wip so I guess you'd have fixed them anyway.
April 3rd, 2011, 04:49 AM
Might have to use my really bad tablet, unless my quick fix has worked :/
April 3rd, 2011, 04:58 AM
What's the problem, mate. I'll help out.
April 3rd, 2011, 05:25 AM
well drivers and stuff are installed but it does not want to install bamboo dock so that it can actually run, not really sure what to do about that to be honest. Just keep trying to install it.
MANAGED TO GET IT WORKING ON MY LAPTOP, NO PHOTOSHOP SO PROBABLY END UP USING GIMP.
