Have you always wanted to paint or draw like the old masters of art? Well, now's your chance!!
In this challenge, you will be REENACTING a famous painting done by a modern or old master of art! Basically, you’ll take the old painting, use your own Ocs or any other manga character out there and draw them as if they were the people in that famous painting!
For a very good example of what I‘m talking about, look at this link http://media.photobucket.com/image/light%20ryuk/happycard/applehandoff-1.jpg?o=39
then, look at the original (WARNING! Akward manly parts in the original!!) http://www.cubiclamp.com/Exotica/Open_Letter_files/400px-God2-Sistine_Chapel.jpg you’ll be doing something similar with your ocs and other manga characters of your choosing!
1. NO NUDITY!! I know there’s a LOT of famous paintings with it in it, but please refrain from at least boobs and manly parts PLEASE!
2. If the painting you are reenacting is colored, your picture must be colored. But if it’s not, it doesn’t
3. You MUST put the name of the painter who did the original in your description as the rightful owner!
4, And you HAVE to put a link of the original in your description also!
Q: “If the painting is famous, but has no people present in it, can I still redo it?”
A: “here’s the thing, if the original has no people, you’ll have to put people in it. Take Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” for example. You could put little chibis freaking out on all those little swirls if you wanted XD but yes, there has to be people.”
To get you all started if you can’t think of any at the top of your head, here’s a few links to a few famous paintings I know of--
1. “The Mona Lisa” Leonardo DaVinchi http://painting.about.com/od/arthistorytrivia/ig/Gallery-of-Famous-Paintings/Leonardo-Mona-Lisa.htm
2. “The Tragedy” Pablo Picasso http://painting.about.com/od/arthistorytrivia/ig/Gallery-of-Famous-Paintings/Picasso-Blue-Period.htm
3. “The Star” by Edger Degas http://www.elrelojdesol.com/edgar-degas/gallery/pages/13_The_Star.htm
4. “the Sistine Madonna” by Raphael http://www.elrelojdesol.com/raphael/gallery/pages/13_The_Sistine_Madonna_Detail_of_Genii.htm
5. “The Boating Party” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir http://www.elrelojdesol.com/pierre-auguste-renoir/gallery/pages/12_The_Boating_Party_Lunch.htm
Now these are just suggestions! If you have an idea, go for it!
Prizes-- (To be announced later)
Entries will be judged on how well you portray the painting and how accurately you tell its story through the expression and movement of your characters--Make these old masters proud!!
