:iconmudkiplaplz: So I herd u liek progress? :iconmudkiplaplz:



The idea behind this contest is to help Fan Artists realize how much progress they've made through the years.  Basically, you'll be able to show deviantART's Community a comparison between one of your old pieces, and a remake or reinterpretation of said piece, and at the same time get the chance to win awesome prizes!


:iconmudkiplaplz: What do you have to do?



First thing is to find an old Fan Art you've created. It has to be at least 6 months old. Choose something that you think could use some revamping. It can be something you have uploaded to deviantART, but if it's not, you can upload it to your scraps or the Fan Art Gallery Category you think suits it the best.

The next step is to analyse the piece.  How would you execute it today?  What changes would you make?  You can recreate or reinterpret it as you wish, as long as the original concept is kept intact.

Once you're finished, submit it to Contests > 2011 > So I Herd U Liek Progress.

Once all the entries have been judged, a news article will be published with the winners and features of all the entries.


:iconmudkiplaplz: Media:

:iconmudkiplaplz: Rules:



This contest is for Fan Art only. For a good explanation on deviantART's definition of Fan Art, let me quote the wonderful rydi1689, former Fan Art Gallery Moderator: "Our definition of fan art is something that is based on a character, a world, or a story created and copyrighted to someone else. Real people, regardless of how famous they are, can't be copyrighted and therefore it is not considered Fan Art. Real people, places and/or stories that do not have copyright themselves but appear in copyrighted books are still not considered Fan Art. "
Your entry must be a revamp or reinterpretation of your own work. Collaborations aren't allowed.
• You need to provide the thumbnail to the older version of your entry in the Artist's Comments. Don't know how to use thumbnail codes? Check FAQ #511: How do I post thumbnails of my art on the Chat Network or Forums?. For those of you with no Premium Membership, a link will suffice.
• You can enter as many times as you want, but you can only win once. This counts for both the visual and literature categories.
• Your entry must be based on Fan Art made 6 months ago or older.
• All entries must comply with deviantART's Terms of Service and Policy.
• If your entry is a Photomanipulation, please provide links and credit to all resources and stock you've used and make sure you have the proper permission, otherwise it will be disqualified from the contest.
• All entries must be made specifically for this contest. No exceptions.
The contest starts on April 4th 12:00 AM PST and ends on June 4th 11:59 PM PST.

We're still in the judging phase. Please be a little patient as the Literature judging will take longer than judging visual entries.
