    HEART OF ICE

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    ART BRIEF:

    SUBJECT: The tragic relationship of Mister Freeze and his wife, Nora Fries.
    CONCEPT: Heart of Ice was the third episode of the legendary Batman the Animated Series. It revitalized and redefined the Batman foe, Mister Freeze, as a deeper, tragic character. The above image encapsulates the heart of the character, forever separated from the wife he loves and forever united by the cold. Do your own take on this now classic scene from the episode. ”

    Elric is a moody wanderer, a walking contradiction. Sickly and thin, he leaves only death and destruction in his path when wielding Stormbringer, the soul-eating sword he is bonded to. Illustrate an image that captures the essence of this tortured character.
    Good luck!

    REFERENCE:
    See above.

    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’m a little behind this morning…which also means Knight is behind, as I haven’t gotten his piece scanned.
    I’ll be posting something today before too late. So, if I get extra time, so do the rest of you.

    Wow! Close one again this week. Dafu and Newbold really brought it. I love it. It inspires me to push more.

    Spawn sounds great! With the 300th issue coming up soon, how about we open it up to any iteration of the character?

    Joe,
    That’s just beautiful! I’m so sorry you didn’t get to take part in this one. Win another one and suggest Freeze again, man! It wouldn’t bother me at all.
