So very talented, but…
Yesterday I explained the differences between Referencing and Tracing artwork. And today, the entire AQW team was all =’( because we had to disqualify the following Chaos Lord Kimberly entry:
Most great artists find inspiration by referencing another’s artwork. But, as you can see, this Kimberly entry falls within the definition of tracing. Of course, the guitar was changed, the outfit heavily modified, and the facial expression and hair was all unique… but the pose, the outline, and the fingers all came directly from the above image.
This Kimberly artist (I hid their name for privacy) is obviously extremely talented and a gifted artist, but sadly, we cannot award them a prize due to the fact that this is not their own original artwork. Had they merly referenced the photo, and created something new and unique using the anime girl’s photo as inspiration, then we would have awarded them the Grand Prize—but we have to disqualify them as it is not original artwork =(
Do not be discouraged, player-who-shall-not-be-named! You possess AMAZING talent, and we know you’re capable of creating a masterpiece using your own imagination (and photo editing software of choice).
We look forward to seeing your newest entry in the next contest <3
You rocked it, everyone!
Let’s give a round of applause for our Chaos Lord Kimberly winners! …aaand the crowd. Goes. Wild! (Woah, did a mosh pit start over there, too?!)
(Winners: it might take a few days to get the prizes added to your inventory, and we’re working on creating the Grand Prize winners’ work into in-game house items, so thank you for your patience!)
Stay tuned to the Design Notes, as we will announce our 7th Lord of Chaos Fan Art contest winners tomorrow.
Rock Out in Battle On!
