ImagineFX - - Imaginenation News -

If you’ve been sit­ting on an amaz­ing char­ac­ter de­sign, DrawCrowd’s Epic Char­ac­ter Con­test is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to share it with the world. Run­ning from now un­til 14 April, this com­pe­ti­tion is look­ing for orig­i­nal cre­ations made in Painter and Clip Stu­dio Paint Pro.

“We’re ex­cited to be kick­ing off the Epic Char­ac­ter Con­test along­side some of the big­gest names in our in­dus­try,” says Chris Pierce, prod­uct man­ager for dig­i­tal arts at Corel. “Painter and Clip Stu­dio Paint Pro are both pow­er­ful art apps in their own right,” Chris con­tin­ues. “But when artists com­bine these tools, they’ll dis­cover a new way to ink and colour that’s a real game-changer.”

Sub­mis­sions will be judged on their “wow fac­tor”, cre­ativ­ity, and com­po­si­tion and lay­out. With no con­test cat­e­gories, there’s plenty of room for artists and il­lus­tra­tors to let their imag­i­na­tion run wild.

The con­test will be judged by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Corel, Smith Mi­cro, DrawCrowd and Wa­com, along with pro il­lus­tra­tor and con­cept artist Harvey Bunda to find the over­all champion. The ul­ti­mate win­ner will re­ceive an ex­clu­sive one-on-one men­tor­ship with Harvey, who re­veals: “I’ll break down my per­sonal sketch and paint work­flow us­ing Clip Stu­dio Paint Pro and Painter 2017 while of­fer­ing in­sights on how the win­ner can im­prove their own port­fo­lio and char­ac­ter art.”

The win­ner will also take home a Wa­com Cin­tiq 13HD, Painter 2017 and its Manga brush pack, Par­ti­cleShop and its Fan­tasy brush pack, Clip Stu­dio Paint Pro, Poser 11 Pro and a sub­scrip­tion to Imag­ineFX. Two run­ners-up will be awarded prizes that in­clude a Nin­tendo Switch, a Wa­com In­tuos Pro Small and Painter 2017.

This is a unique chance for artists to show off their abil­i­ties and ex­plore Painter and Clip Stu­dio Paint Pro, so be sure to head over to the DrawCrowd site at to read the full de­tails and con­test rules, where you can also down­load trial ver­sions of the two pro­grams.

The Stag King is one of the many orig­i­nal de­signs that Harvey Bunda has con­cepted. Harvey’s worked for the likes of Lu­cas­film, Volta and Mat­tel, as a con­cept artist and il­lus­tra­tor. For this art­work Harvey draw the pro­por­tions of a hu­man head and torso, be­fore ap­ply­ing the ro­botic de­tails.
