Duality Of The World. Winners!

Fri Mar 17, 2017, 12:28 PM

Hello everyone!


The first contest DUALITY OF THE WORLD of our young group :iconart-revival: came to the end. 


Thanks a lot to all the participants for the awesome entries! It was really hard to choose several works from 67 amazing photomanipulations. 

We invited four independent judges to help us to pick the winners: Dani-Owergoor, ErikShoemaker, Wesley-Souza and Rowye. The group founders also voted. 


And now it's time to announce the winners!


I place


"World Of Contrast" by Secretadmires:iconsecretadmires:

World of Contrast by Secretadmires

Wesley-Souza: "A reality of our world, great concept."

ErikShoemaker: "Unlike most people, who interpreted the theme as two ladies with differently colored hair and dresses, this artist took a more challenging concept and executed it very well. This is why this artwork deserves the first place. 
It is nice that the artist tried to go with a more realistic depiction which fits the setting and tone of the concept. In that regard the artwork could still be improved, most of all in terms of realistic lighting (the two sides of the street are lit from opposite sides). However, the colors, angle and perspective (which is one of the most challenging aspects in scenic manips) were matched very well overall."

Rowye: "Not exceptionally amazed by the execution but personally I think this is the artist who compromised the most with the topic. Something that a lot of people don't have the courage or will, to get their hands dirty."

II place


"Vida vs Muerte" by lauraypablo:iconlauraypablo:

Duality - Vida vs Muerte by lauraypablo

ErikShoemaker: "This is technically a bit sloppy but still visually striking thanks to the dynamic angle and perspective as well as the vibrant color scheme. This artwork gets my  vote because out of the many entries it depicts the life-and-death theme in the most interesting way by showing the interplay between the two. The water splashes and effects could use some work. The face modifications are a bit rough but show that the artist spent some time and effort on executing her concept."

Rowye: "Just stunning and very in touch with the topic."

III place


"Cross Paths - Good and Evil" by JayGraphixx:iconjaygraphixx:

Cross Paths - Good And Evil by JayGraphixx

ErikShoemaker: "The concept is rather simple but the realization is clearly related to the theme. And the result is drop-dead gorgeous and perhaps in my opinion the most professional-looking entry in terms of technique, quality, light and coloring (e.g. the subtle light reflections on the backs of the wolfs (!), the smooth transition/blending in the grass, and the background haze). That's why this artwork also secures my  vote.

Dani-Owergoor: "I really enjoyed this idea and the way was built, the scene was well planned and it really seems like both sides will fight a battle anytime now!"


Honorable mentions


"Rec(h)ess Time" by Cold-Tommy-Gin:iconcold-tommy-gin:

Rec(h)ess Time by Cold-Tommy-Gin

ErikShoemaker: "This elaborate manip is clearly related to the theme and shows the interplay between the two sides by having them play chess against each other, which for me is a nice touch to the theme. The blending is very well done and the result is striking due to the beautiful use of light. In my opinion the "death"-side falls a bit short compared to the stunning angel. The artist could have made better use of light and colors in this area. Furthermore the shadows and background are rather sloppy and could use some improvement. Still, worth my vote."

Dani-Owergoor: "Another great scene approaching two completely opposite beings. I consider the board as "life" and the pieces as the "humans" while good and evil hangs their eternal battle. Beautiful scene in balanced colors."

Wesley-Souza: "Good and evil having a fun time together, great concept."

"You Found Me" by Mr-Ripley:iconmr-ripley:

You Found Me by Mr-Ripley

ErikShoemaker: "I really like this artwork (amazing light) and the concept is super creative, however, in my opinion barely related to the theme. The life-and-death theme is not really portrayed convincingly except for the skull."

Dani-Owergoor: "This is a very interesting concept of "life and death" and unlike anything I have ever seen. I could tell a story about "a little fish that hides "inside something dead" so as not to fall into the temptation of the seductive light of the Abyssal". Wonderful lighting."

"Angels" by vimark:iconvimark:

Angels by vimark

ErikShoemaker: "Very clean and professional looking, but the theme relation is quite weak as it is only shown through the differently colored lances."

Dani-Owergoor: "
The battle of "good vs evil" has been portrayed ever since, but when we see the concept so well applied, without excesses and working with a dramatic and balanced palette of colors, there is no way of not drawing attention!"

Rowye: "
Visually my favorite of all, nice theme but mostly it just looks incredible."

"Mirror" by DanielPriego:icondanielpriego:

Mirror by DanielPriego

Rowye: "Very awesome transformation on the black dress model and I love the inclusion of the city at the top of the artwork."

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS!


Thanks again to the contest sponsors and to all the participants who made this contest successful!




And at last some group news:


We are planning to start a new series of short challenges "Forgotten Stock Revival". In each of them we'll offer you to create a manipulation using one required stock, which was posted many months ago and never was used before. The first challenge from this series starts on March 25. You can choose by yourself an unused stock from awesome  provider CD-STOCK, we will post the poll very soon.


The next big contest will take place in summer. If you have any ideas for it's topic, please send a note to the group. It must be something smart and dainty, maybe philosophical like "Duality of the World"


We need points for our contests and short challenges. Please help us to make something interesting for you permanently! Donate us here Lora-Vysotskaya (mark "for Art-Revival"). We'll be grateful for an each point!




That's all. See you soon!
