Emotionsphotobook.com kicks off its Emotions Photo Reference Illustration Art Contest
May 15, 2012 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) Emotionsphotobook.com, home to the artist's reference book, launched a contest challenging all artists including comic artists, illustrators, concept artists, and animators to submit their best artwork referencing the emotions photo book for their facial expressions. At the contest site, 4 model photos are offered demonstrating the facial expressions: indignation, cruelty, fear, and anger. The challenge is to create a completed artwork utilizing one or more of the provided reference photos.
"We wanted to promote the book by creating this call to artists to see how they could re-imagine this reference material in their own artwork," said Patrick Wong, graphic designer for Emotionsphotobook.com. "The idea for the book was simple - if you needed to reference sadness for an artwork, you could quickly do so and find 20 models expressing that in 3 different views."
Three prizes will be awarded to the top entries.
The contest is officially underway on June 1, 2012 and ending on September 20, 2012 - but they're encouraging entries right away to the contest gallery. For more details on the "Emotions Photo Reference Illustration Art Contest" and to submit an entry please visit the official contest site at www.emotionsphotobook.com/contest-information/.
