Hello Krita artists .
We completed the monthly art contest for May and the winner is @Mythmaker . Congratulations to everyone who participated. And now we have monthly contest for the month of April. @Mythmaker has chosen the topic for this month.
Your task is to depict either a sinister (threatening, harsh) or serene (calm, beautiful) outdoor environment, then include the opposite extreme as a permeating force.
Examples could be nature taking root in a ruined environment, or pollution eating into a meadow of flowers.
It can be realistic or fantastical.
The scale is up to you - it could be a vast open landscape or something more intimate.
You can include figures or creatures in your image, but they should not be the main focus.
Technical challenge (optional): Create a series of thumbnails exploring different ideas and/or compositions prior to starting your main picture. They can be simple line sketches, or full-on value/colour studies; as long as they help you progress your idea.
The topic changes every month. Your submission should be somehow related to the topic. And if possible please add a few lines explaining your idea and image. Artwork should be done in Krita.
You can post maximum 3 Entries and also edit the entries until the deadline all your entries will be clubbed during the vote and you only get one vote. Reply with your entries to this post in this thread. The submission will be open until 2022-06-28T00:00:00Z.
We will hold a poll at the end on 2022-06-28T00:00:00Z till 2022-06-30T00:00:00Z . The artwork with most number of votes will be the winner.
The winner be featured on this website and the winner will have the privilege to choose the topic and the challenge for the next month! If the winner is not available or reachable then the 1st runner up will be asked to provide the topic and challenge
