Traditional Drawing: Your goal in this contest is to traditionally draw one or more living beings that swim in the sea or ocean. It can be something as small as a baby turtle or as big as a whale! Anything that swims is a great subject! No people, boats, ships, plants or birds are allowed in your drawing. Good luck!
REMEMBER these contests require that you post at least 2 intermediate steps of your drawing in a step by step guide, so we can see the progress of your work.
Reference photos are allowed (no copyrighted images), but links should be mentioned in your SBS. Include links for all images.
Contest Moderator: Please do not forget to add reference links if you used a photo as reference, and that tracing an image is not allowed ( 5 years and 1896 days ago )
JoeCacia: How did you know about all the tracing stuff? I mean I would never know even if I am looking at the pictures! My thoughts were WOW! They are amazing artists and how lucky!
No really, how can you know if it is tracing or not! Any trick we should know? ( 5 years and 1891 days ago )
Contest Moderator: The Moderator Team consists of experienced amateurs, professional artists and photoshoppers. Any educated artist can see tell tale signs in the work that makes them suspicious and we have many methods to find the source used even when no source has been posted. It's a concerted effort by the team to find these images and often members will red flag an entry they suspect of being traced or stolen, often even providing links to the source used.
It is a moderators obligation to protect good members from being cheated by these individuals. To win by cheating is a hollow victory and that is something I will never understand. ( 5 years and 1891 days ago )
JoeCacia: Me 2 I never understand cheating! You are all doing a great job! Kudos really, I can never do what you are doing guys!
