I'm assuming that the producers held multiple art contests at the same time in order to promote the movie. I don't recall seeing any of that art in dA.

Oh man...After weeks of hard work, these last couple of days really have been killing me (and I suspect many others). I know that today is not necessarily set in stone (as written in the contest rules, it says "on, or around the 22nd").

But, it would be great if we did all find out who made it! :) Again, good luck everyone!

Todays the day, huh? I hope it's soon. I can't wait to see who made it this time though I'm not expecting mine to. Way too many top notch entry's. Love the competition, it only makes me stronger! It would be cool to see one of yours make it, not a lot of painted entry's.

There's a ton of crazy awesome submissions that are buried in there too. While I think this contest had a smaller amount of entry's there are more than enough quality and creative pieces. It must be difficult to pour over and evaluate each one.

 

Yeah, I'm really liking these contests. I've learned a lot and pushed some of my skills a bit. Plus I've met a good number of people that have helped me shape my view of art and how to proceed with my work. It's also helped to keep my expectations in check and learn to deal with rejection while identifying ways to improve.

Not yet.  In past contests with semi-finalist, they added another link up near "View Entries" to show just the semi-finalists.  I expect they'll do something similar for this one.

Sorry, dude. This was a US only contest, and the dA staff saw that you were from India. Maybe a dA contest will pop up in India some day; but for now, there are still some other contests around dA that aren't limited to just the US.

You submitted it to Deviantart under "scraps" instead of "Contests / 2013 / Riddick Rule the Dark Contest"(the location is displayed under the title of your piece). Did you summit it using the contest submission page? If it was submitted correctly a banner for the contest would have immediately appeared under the artwork.

:iconruffscorp:
ruffscorp Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
No, I submitted it in "Contest/2013/ riddick Rule the Dark Contest" itself.. and it was listed in the contest also before yesterday, but when I just checked my profile and looked at the Artwork, it was showing in scraps instead of being in contest zone.... That's quite confusing, is because I'm disqualified or something else?, there isn't any message about that also from the contest.

I think yours is neat, and I like your choice of colors. Your inking is phenomenal in all your other works, too.

I'm just a member, like you, so I can't tell you why yours was officially removed, but I can tell you what I *think* disqualified you based on reading the official rules....

If you read the official rules very carefully, it says that the image: 
1) Must not have any distinguishing artist marks - which I would assume that's what that green block is.
2) Cannot include the title of the picture.
3) Cannot contain any logos - which I would say that covers anything looking like a comic book sale. Besides, the winner's work is going to be used on merchandise and promotional sales items, so I doubt they want it to look like a comic book, even if your work is good.
4) if not following any of those rules will be removed from the contest gallery.
And finally, on a spell-check note: The actor's name is spelled Diesel.

If you do another contest in the future, I would merely suggest doing a thorough check of both your piece and the rules.
I'm sorry yours didn't qualify. And I'm just trying to help since you appear so frustrated and angry. As I said, I like your inkwork! Would be great for you to finalize in the future!

Thank you, i now at least have a reason.
I have shown at galleries and they give me reasons why they dont want a piece shown.
I will go back and fix these issues as i thought a comic cover finished would work great but i have raw inks that i would have loved to have their instead if i would have known no marks for the movie, and artist name is easy to take out since its in a box in a sea of black. Name of actor is my bad i didnt check....did that before with Johnny Depp(made it Johnny Deep).
I was really hoping to be a part of this contest, but looks like since their was no editor to say 'Hey this doesnt work, fix it' Guess im bones out of the work i did and the contest entry.....DAMN IT! (no way i can have it placed back in is their? Raw inks is what id do or the flat colors)

For future contest is it possible to have these clearly posted on the message the donts and the dos that is, also the contest was very vague about the subject in which the art was to be done to 'Use the shadows' is what i got from it. Clear and clean explanations does alot to us busy artists who work for a living and do art as a living as well.

In my opinion, as the child of a long-time freelance artist, I would say that, just as in this case, judges are not always required to tell you what you've done wrong. And once they have judged it, they cannot tell you to change something and resubmit. That would be unfair to others.

As for the contest being vague, the subject is meant to be so that it draws out the creativity of those choosing to enter. Clearly, yours is creative, but it did not follow the guidelines of the contest.

I see from your profile that you went to Art design school. By now you have learned that every professor has different standards and guidelines. So, too, does every contest. Every person in this world likes something different, not unlike each individual judge.

I love Riddick and was excited about this contest, but I can barely doodle. I like to look at and enjoy everyone's art - comes from a lifetime in my family, lol.

Just pay attention to the rules and go slow over reading them. That's the best advice I can give here. I am happy to have helped you! ;)
