    SHE-RA AND SWIFT WIND

    ART BRIEF: Illustrate She-Ra and Swift Wind, her unicorn.

    CONCEPT: Feel free to illustrate She-Ra according to the original or reboot designs, or take this in your own direction.

    Good luck!

    REFERENCE:

    The Rules:
    THE ART CLASH is a weekly art challenge. Each TUESDAY a new Art Clash challenge will be posted. You may work in ANY MEDIA you like, but you must stick to the brief of this week’s Art Clash. And please, no posting old work in the Art Clash. This is about encouraging growth through work, so we expect a new piece every time.

    Your final art will need to be uploaded to an image hosting service (here are a few I recommend: Imgur, Google Photos and Flickr) and then may be posted here ANY time until SUNDAY evening at MIDNIGHT (EST). Voting begins immediately afterward and polls close on MONDAY at MIDNIGHT (EST). So don’t miss out!
    The artist with the most votes for the week by the close of the polls is declared that week’s winner and chooses the next Art Clash.

    ***A BRIEF NOTE BEFORE WE BEGIN***
    Just a reminder that we’re currently in The Art Clash version 1.1. The primary difference in this iteration is each week’s Art Clash will feature two tiers of competition: sequential and pin-up. Anyone entering can choose to illustrate that week’s challenge in a sequential storytelling form (page templates will be provided here) or as a stand-alone, pin-up-style image. Build and illustrate a story of your own around an Art Clash challenge, or wow your audience with a single powerful image. It’s up to you. We want to foster all levels of creativity here, so this will provide an opportunity for all artists to take their work in whatever direction he or she desires and to whatever degree of finishing.

    I tried a new way of coloring, but I still think I need to go back to the first style I made. It’s more Japanese.

    These are some awesome entries! I’m going to keep this open an extra day. That will give everyone a little more time to make any last-minute corrections.

    No time to include Swife Wind. I took Joe Kemp’s suggestion ( from previous Game of Thrones challenge) by shrinking the caricature head. It does look better. Thanks Joe.

    Steel – WOW the anatomy of your swiftwind is amazing – you did a great job of keeping perspective in mind especially the way the horn, head, and body overlap and scale. You also did a great job of creating depth with the shading under the horse’s chin and having the confidence to make the back leg totally black.

    Knight – i really like the brush selection/techniques you used on the grass and the clouds. It adds a very nice realistic feel to the background. It would be awesome to see that continued on the character. It looks like you are getting more and more confident with your lines. Keep up the awesome work.

    Lily – awesome first entry – I am so proud of you not being afraid to enter. I think the strongest part of your piece is swiftwind – the eye and head area look like you paid attention to the reference you used to draw this. I think spending more time underdrawing would greatly improve your finished drawing.

    Joe (self critique) – I am really happy with this one – I was nervous about the number of elements required to complete it (shera, horse, wings) and how to make them work together. I feel that it was pretty successful and I am really excited with how the horse turned out. I wish i had time to add color or at least a grey scale level.

    Newbold – fantastic action shot – it really looks like she is charging into battle. I think the strongest part of your piece is her face. It is very expressive and you did a good job of making her look like a young hero. Her sword arm seems a little long but aside from that I think it is a very solid piece. Great coloring on the wings (I wish I would have had time to color mine).

    Dafu – WOW this really looks amazing – it looks like a model for an action figure. Probably would have gotten my vote if you would have included the horse. It would be interesting to see some shading added to create a bit more depth and dimension.

    Honor – beautiful action shot i can really feel the motion and energy of this one – I especially like the way you made her have a happy expression on her face like she is really in her element charging into battle.

    Brett – truly beautiful moment of calm – it really looks like a reflective moment that is happening either right before the battle or just after the battle. Capturing a feeling in a moment of calm like this is an incredible skill. I especially like how you used the rear wing of swiftwind to be a frame around her head – this makes it so the detail of her face/helm isnt lost in the busyness of the wing detail great use of restraint.

    Wow! That’s certainly one way to make an entrance, Lily! Great work!

    I truly wish I could have voted for everyone. I mean that. I’ll try to get some thoughts and suggestions posted later today. I just want to say, though, I love seeing the different artistic perspectives. Truly.

    What’s next, Lily? 🙂
