Summer is always the eagerly awaited season, lovely and bright. That said, I came up with an idea to challenge you a bit :) And give you a loose topic to make some summery art.
So, can you find a doomy or haunting outlook on the summertime? You may have to look a bit more carefully :)
Art suitable for the challenge
Please include both doomy and summery elements to your work. Feel free to choose your fav artform, as long as you can share a picture of it. Your art can be inspired by metal songs or lyrics, but that’s optional.
Sharing your entry
Share your pics on Twitter by August 31th 2014. Remember to add hashtag #SummerOfDoomChallenge. Please add few words about the piece. 1-3 entrys can be sent per person. All artworks are added to an online gallery.
I will personally choose the winners that best capture the challenge topic in an imaginative way. And announce them (on Twitter and Tumblr) on Wednesday September 3th 2014.
1st prize: 25€ gift card for a record store (of your choice) and a photo jewelry necklace of the artwork
2nd or 3rd prize: Photo jewelry necklace of the artwork
Entrys that don’t fit the given topic (or contain offensive elements) will not be included. You must have a Twitter account to participate and share only your personal work. Please use images that you have full right for. I will not be responsible for any copyright complaints.
All pictures may be shared on social media or darknessbeside.com site, always with credits. Some of the works may be modified for printed reproduction (such as t-shirts). 10% of the retail price will be accounted to the original artist.
But it’s not summer here!
If it’s not summertime in your country, don’t worry - just fake it :)
Don’t go murdering anyone for artistic purposes.
PS. You can contact me via Twitter with questions about the challenge
