    ICONIC IMAGE OF AQUAMAN AS A DC HEAVY-HITTER

    ART BRIEF
    SUBJECT: ICONIC IMAGE OF AQUAMAN AS A DC HEAVY-HITTER.

    CONCEPT: With the enormous success of the Aquaman film, the character is finally poised to become the heavy-hitter he always should have been.  Gone are the days of Aquaman as a fish-whispering joke.  DC has (wisely) commissioned you to design an image that will redefine the character going forward.   You must use the costume design from the film.

    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.

      Man, who didn’t love Super Friends? I think this is where I began thinking Aquaman was cool.

      I really like the watercolors, David! Man, you’re going to keep pushing until I go full-in on these things, aren’t you? I’ve got my Copics just sitting here, waiting to be put to use. GRRRRR…

        Thanks Brett! I just edited my post and I added the inked version next to the pencils one.

        My Aquaman version looks like a mixed version of Aquaman and Hulk Lol…

    Awesome!

    Voting is open. If everyone is having trouble making the Monday deadline, I can adjust it to closer to mid-week. Let me know what works.

    I have not made the adjustment to the deadline but I say keep it firm.
    Is it monday 00:00?

      That’s the ideal, but when I’m on deadline I don’t usually make that and have to do the entire thing Sunday night/Monday morning. So I’m thinking Monday 8:00 AM EST is the ideal.

      The general idea behind the Art Clash–beyond keeping them drawing–was to better prepare artists for producing art on a deadline. So I want to maintain the deadlines, but I’m very willing to flex on when the deadline is, in order to better serve the artists participating.

    Me too, but I’ll take the first suggestion. If you haven’t gotten a chance to have everyone go with your idea, now’s the chance.

    Thank you for the votes. For next week, an iconic image of Michael Myers!!! I’ve only been waiting for a win just because of this idea!!! And it is a rule that you need to listen to the Halloween theme song when drawing!

      Ha Ha Ha. Ok, ok, Steel. It’s a little out of season, but the subject will be Michael Meyers and the Concept will be suspenseful, drawn-out horror/dread.

      I like it. It will challenge everyone. Very interesting pick.

      Get to it, everyone!
