    SPAWN

    ART BRIEF:

    SUBJECT: SPAWN!!!  Any version, any costume–heck, if you want, feel free to make up your own.
    CONCEPT: With the 300th issue of Spawn rapidly approaching, now is the perfect time to illustrate your coolest, baddest version of the character that probably best epitomizes the 90s anti-hero.

    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.

    Joe Kemp has really inspired me. I’m trying to have better line work for my inks.

    I drew my inks very finely, then I added scratches and hatching. I did this in about an hour. Amazing challenge, Newbold!

      For me, the hardest part of foreshortening is not the overlap of it, but guessing where and how much space is really ‘missing’ on a side as it turns away. Why say all this junk when I don’t draw that well that consistently? Mainly because I like how you shortened that plane or side between the pecs and neck. It’s my favorite part of the picture and sells it really well.

        Thanks, bro! It was a brave thing you did jumping right into the ins like that. But if you ask me, I think it turned out very well. Great job.

    Het, you might ask, why do these pictures stinky stink so bad? Well, I drew them directly, no pencils, just marker right on the paper. If I made a guide it was in ink. Should do more of these, imo.

    Awesome, Steel! Great work! Joe, I really loved yours. Great work. Something about it reminded me of Whilce Portacio. Knight, that’s a really imposing…knight ;). And Scott, I’d really like to see you go with this free-form drawing style. See where it takes you and how it helps your art.

    The next challenge:

    JUDGE DREDD – “I AM THE LAW.”
    Do with that what you will. I’ll post it soon.
