Journal Entry: Wed Feb 27, 2008, 8:19 PM
ENTER OUR STREET FIGHTER TRIBUTE ART CONTEST!
Please tell art communities about this contest and link to this journal entry!
Spread the word to anime/video game fans across the internet and around the globe. All are welcome to enter!
Street Fighter is one of the most influential video game franchises of all time. It launched the head-to-head fighting game genre and brought together millions of players around the globe to do battle, first at arcades and then, later on, across a variety of home consoles. 2008 is the 20th anniversary of the franchise.
The Street Fighter fans who were young players when the franchise first launched are now grown up, but their love of the game continues. This high quality art book, produced by UDON Entertainment, is a cross section of brand new artistic interpretations of the Street Fighter characters in a series of full size illustrations. The book will launch at this year's San Diego Comicon as part of Capcom's Street Fighter Celebration content.
UDON artists and other comic, video game and freelance illustrators are invited to interpret their favorite Street Fighter characters for inclusion in this special book. Along with these invited artists is a widespread open art submission call to the video game fan communities to submit artwork for possible inclusion in the tribute volume.
You could be part of Capcom history as part of the Street Fighter Tribute art book and have your artwork showcased alongside top names in the industry!
We want to see your unique vision of Street Fighter!
We expect a large amount of entries from the global fan art community so please ensure that you follow the rules as outlined below. ART SUBMITTED THAT DOES NOT FOLLOW THESE RULES WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
Initial submissions must be via a low resolution JPEG (please make the sample jpeg no larger than 900kb) e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. In that e-mail, include your full name (real name, not internet nickname or other ID) and proper mailing address.
Multiple submissions are allowed. If you send multiple submissions for the contest, please e-mail each entry separately and ensure that your full contact information is included with each submission.
Collaborations are allowed as long as both artists are aware of the submission (ie. you can't colour up someone else's line art without their permission and submit it) and are fully credited in the submission e-mail.
If your work is chosen and you'd like us to credit the artwork to a nickname/internet handle, please let us know.
Due to the number of entries we anticipate receiving, ONLY winning artists will receive e-mail confirmation and correspondence. Please dont follow up with e-mails asking us if your artwork has won. Well contact you if your artwork has been chosen.
Do NOT send full size (print resolution) illustrations unless we specifically ask you for them. If your artwork is accepted for inclusion in the book, we will send you an e-mail and set up a way to receive the high resolution final image from you.
JPEG samples of illustrations must be e-mailed to email@example.com no later than Monday March 30th in order to be considered for inclusion in the book.
The artwork submission must be an original illustration fully done by the artist.
Final hand-in format size must be
8.5" x 11" (or larger equivalent height-width ratio)
400+ dpi TIF file (CMYK or RGB)
Any characters from the following games
Street Fighter II (and sequels)
Street Fighter III (and sequels)
Street Fighter Alpha (and sequels)
All illustrations should be of Street Fighter characters ONLY.
You can illustrate a single character or a group. It's up to you.
DO NOT include characters from other video games (including other Capcom games) or any non-Street Fighter characters from crossover video games (IE. NO X-MEN, MARVEL VS CAPCOM, NO SNK). Including non-Street Fighter characters will automatically disqualify the submission. Please also note that original characters from the Street Fighter EX series are also NOT allowed.
All content must be teen-friendly (PG-13 equivalent) - No extreme violence/gore (a little bit of blood is okay) or nudity.
Stylistically, we want artists to show us what they can do. We dont need you to draw or paint just like the Capcom artists in order to win (though if that is the style you choose, thats okay too). Realistic, anime/manga, super-deformed/cute, comic book style, abstract, animated, graffiti, pixilated, you name it... were open and excited about receiving all kinds of different original artistic interpretations.
Winners of the Street Fighter Tribute art submission contest will have their illustration included and credited in the Tribute art book being published by UDON and will receive their own free copy of the book once it's released. This is a great way to showcase your illustration skills to a wider audience and show your love for the Street Fighter franchise at the same time.
By submitting artwork to the Street Fighter Tribute art book contest, you agree to relinquish all reproduction rights to the image. There is no payment to artists for artwork used in the Street Fighter Tribute book. All artwork included in the Street Fighter Tribute book is owned by CAPCOM. Submitting artwork does not guarantee that it will be used in the Street Fighter Tribute book. Artwork will be judged on an individual basis by the editors of Street Fighter Tribute. All decisions are final.
Were recommending that artists keep their SF Tribute submission artwork under wraps until the book launches on July 23, 2008. We want the fans to be surprised as they open up the book for the first time and see the amazing variety and quality of artwork inside.
