Orange Fantasy - Photoshop Contest [22 entries]

The Duel of Oranges Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

Fantasy is a genre that uses magic and other supernatural forms as a primary element of plot, theme, and/or setting. Many works within the genre take place on fictional planes or planets where magic is common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three.

In this contest, we're going to create such a fantasy scene with the color 'orange' as the main theme. Dragons, unicorns, forgotten places, ... anything fantasy related goes, as long as the dominant color of your subjects in your scenery is made out of orange tones.

Required level: 5+ or higher.
Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

MossyB: " long as the DOMINANT color of your subjects in your scenery is made out of orange tones."

This means you can use other colors, but orange tones will be the most visually dominant in the image. ( 5 years and 2267 days ago )
Hayato: Thank you for your clearly (extended) explanation, MossyB. Look forward to bring down my so called divine creativity upon this one. Lol. Fantasy & Sci-Fi theme were always my favorite & also my area of expertise untill now. ( 5 years and 2267 days ago )
DanLundberg: Titling the contest "Fantasy (Orange)" might have better captured the focus and the constraint—seeing as how I had initially expected this to be about fantastical oranges which would likely fit the theme but would be an unnecessarily restrictive notion. ( 5 years and 2266 days ago )
scratzilla1: HEY GREAt idea for topic! FANTASTICAL ORANGES! careful what you put out there undberg... I just might happen ...heeee.... ( 5 years and 2265 days ago )
Hayato: DunLundberg, you've got a point there... Just take a look to the contest entry there... Hope you'll find the good fantastical oranges which would likely fit the theme. XD ( 5 years and 2262 days ago )

First idea that came to my twisted mind was an orange with magic circle around it. Then, I began to draw another things beside that initial ideas, so the final images grew outside my early imagination...

Fantasy Theme always brings imaginative things comes into play. So there will be no questioning about the results that far from my earlier idea nor fit to any ordinary rules.

Take a look at my drawing, folks. Although I put aside the Orcs, Unicorns, Pegasus, Hobbits... But I tend to bring the Elf, Golem, Dragon, Treant & Werewolf INCLUDING The Sparta & The Iron Man in this design, so it still looks like a fantasy with an oranges as a main object.


Note to viewer & Mods: See the details AFTER vote me. You'll find my signature hidden on the picture. So I WON'T AGAINST THE RULES OF ANONYMITY, okay? You've been warned.

Check SBS, nothing fancy there, just drawing, adjusting, detailing, fooling around with tools of Photoshop.
