Book Characters: A Contest

START DATE: JUNE 13th 2010
END DATE: JULY 13th 2010


A favorite childhood book or fictional character … we all have one, don’t we? What I want you all to ultimately aim for in this contest is to take one of your favorite fictional (or non-fictional) book characters and show them in a whole new light! Truly capture their essence in the form of your preferred art medium. Show them in a funny costume, fighting one of their foes, or maybe just posing for the camera … it doesn’t matter! What I am looking for is the most innovative, inspirational, and jaw-dropping representation of a book character. Your submission can have more than one character in it. Also, make sure to make it clear as to who the character is. For example, the character name needs to be mentioned either in the piece, in the title, or in the description box. FYI: Comic books / graphic novels are allowed!

Again, like in any of my contests, if you are unsure about your submission just show it to me via note and I will tell you if it's ok or not. Don’t be afraid of me, I don’t bite! Haha

The following mediums are acceptable:

Photography
Digital Art
Traditional art
(no ceramics or sculpture sorry :noes:)  


Still a bit lost? Well here are some real examples that truly capture what I want you to do for this contest:
